Bonus Round 7: Recs

Bonus Round 7: Recs

You've created so much during this event, so here's a round to celebrate each other's achievements!

This round is CLOSED as of 7PM on August 24 EDT. Late fills may be posted, but they will not receive points.

  • Recommend at least three fanworks from main or bonus rounds. Your recommendations don’t have to be connected in any way, and you do not need permission to recommend a work.
  • Don't rec your own work. You can recommend things created by your own team, but please spread the love to other teams too.
  • Each recommendation must include at least two sentences explaining why that fanwork is awesome. Please use the format specified below.
  • You may recommend as many works as you like, as long as they are posted separately in groups of at least three.
  • There will be no prompts for this round. Simply post each fill/recommendation list as a comment in response to this post.
  • Remember to follow the general bonus round rules, outlined here.

Bonus round shenanigans all happen in the comments below. Brand-new works only, please.

Format your comment in the following way:

If FILLING (all teams):
  • Replace [YOUR SHIP] with the name of the team you belong to
  • Copy and paste the following form into a comment and fill it out. Delete things in brackets, and leave the HTML alone.

Posts not using this format will be understood to be unofficial discussion posts, regardless of what they contain. They, like all comments in this community, are subject to the code of conduct.

These numbers apply to your team as a whole, not each individual teammate. Make as many fills as you want!

For fills:

First 3 fills by any member of your team: 20 points each
Fills 4-10: 10 points each
Fills 11-20: 5 points each
Fills 21+: 2 points each

All scored content must be created new for this round.

If you're hunting through the prompts looking for what to fill, a good trick is to view top-level comments only.

Have a question? Check The FAQ first. If you still need help, feel free to contact the mods. Happy fanworking!

Theme: Oikage Fic Fills, Volume 11 (Kageyama Eats Shit Edition)

Title: Kingdom Fall
Creator(s): [personal profile] intricacies
Rating: E
Major Tags: dubious consent, sexual content, unhealthy power dynamics, bloodplay
Why is this work awesome?: This fic is in the same universe as this other caste heaven AU the author wrote, which they reference but do not link (so I'm here to do it for you, Xy, you're welcome). Mind the heck out of the tags, but if you're interested in really heavy power unbalances this fic (and its predecessor) are both such a delight. The details for the fighting and the injury are really evocative and visceral and I for one love that, Xy has such a way with words that's clever and intricate (and beautiful even when describing terrible things).

Title: Cold River Water
Creator(s): [personal profile] dynamite
Rating: M
Major Tags: minor violence, drowning, water torture, blood, vomit, ingesting blood, coercion
Why is this work awesome?: Mind the tags, please for your own well-being take note of them, but they are this fic's selling point. I love the world Lin has set up here, all the little details about Kageyama and Oikawa's past together as spies, and I especially love the uncertainty to it, that depending on who tells the story everything changes. The tension between Oikawa and Kageyama is slow and palpable and comes through in the challenge Oikawa issues, because of course halfway drowning Kageyama is a challenge. Lin's descriptions are vivid and visceral and I love that.

Title: Blue
Creator(s): [personal profile] kiyala
Rating: E
Major Tags: graphic depictions of violence; amputation, body horror, eye horror, sexual content, physically disabled character (with a prosthesis)
Why is this work awesome?: I adore this fic because it is perfectly tailored to me in every way. It's a sci-fi AU where a war is being fought and where Kageyama is an android; Oikawa has a prosthesis. The details of the world are lush and fascinating as they fit in around the relationship Oikawa has with Kageyama in this context, though that relationship is its highest selling point. I love Oikawa's bitterness, I love how reckless he is with Kageyama's body, I love love love the perfect, even-handed description of how he pulls Kageyama apart, of Kageyama's high pain threshold and how an android only needs to be able to feel pain in order to fight well, not pleasure. I love that this fic includes intercrural sex because I love alternatives to penetrative sex as the be-all of sexual relations, and of course it's their only option, why would an android soldier have the equipment for anything else? I also love that this is something Oikawa and Kageyama do so often that Kageyama has functionally crossed his wires to process the pain as a positive, as being as close to pleasure as an android of his make can come, it's awful and perfect, I love it.
