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 18 (Even More AUs!!!)

Title: Oikage Bad Blood AU
Creator(s): [personal profile] dynamite
Rating: T
Major Tags: cisswap, minor violence, mention of sex, injury, blood
Why is this work awesome?: This is the most Lin-aesthetic fill I've ever read, which is great, because I have the same love for gorgeous, dangerous women and Taylor Swift and am perfectly equipped to adore this. I love the way Lin incorporated ideas and lines from other Taylor Swift songs, and I love the world she's woven around these versions of Oikawa and Kageyama. I love their body language and the way Lin evokes that with her use of language, everything is pretty and sharp and clean.

Title: Oikage Elemental Magic AU

Why is this work awesome?: I love elemental magic as a form of personality classification, and Serena's casting of Kageyama with water, Oikawa with fire, is a really fun way to characterize their relationship. I love that this is an AU where they'll have to face each other and where Oikawa wants to keep her cards close to her chest, but what I love best of all is Kageyama's response to that: "I won't use whatever you tell me against you. You’ll just learn something new to make up for whatever you’ve lost." It's so even-handed and idealistic and Kageyama, and I really enjoy that.

Title: Oikawa Plagued By Monster Kageyama
Creator(s): [personal profile] kiyala
Rating: M
Major Tags: gore, body horror
Why is this work awesome?: I love this both for the visceral description of the horror of crow monster Kageyama eating Oikawa's heart, and for the way this nightmare is positioned as a manifestation of Oikawa's fears about being surpassed. My favorite line is "Tobio is too big of a monster to make his home in Tooru's rib cage, too heavy for Tooru to carry him around like this" because it so nicely encapsulates the danger to their rivalry: it's too much for Oikawa to keep as baggage, is something weighing him down. His only choice is to retaliate and I just love the way Kii frames this entire concept.
