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: Chihayafuru Art Fills

Title: Chihaya and Shinobu Flower Language
Creator(s): [personal profile] dynamite
Rating: G
Major Tags: none
Why is this work awesome?: As a graphics fill, I love the concept of this. I love flower language and the choices for each of them — Chihaya with carnations for fascination and love, Shinobu with heather for solitude — are both really nice. The juxtaposition of the black and white manga art against the backdrop of the flowers is a really lovely contrast, and I like most of all how Chihaya and Shinobu are positioned so that it appears like they're looking across at each other, from one panel into the next.

Title: Sudo Akito Sends A Valentine to Himself

Why is this work awesome?: I love the entire concept of this, because of course Sudo would send a Valentine to himself; if not him, then who? The way this artist drew his expressions in both panels is also really great; when I look at his smiling face in the last panel I can't help but smile back, even though he's definitely smarmy about it.

Title: Chihaya/Oe Magic AU

Why is this work awesome?: I love the perspective on this, the way Kana pulling the incantation out from her mouth toward the viewer gives the piece an undeniable sense of depth. I'm also really charmed by the concept, because of course a series like Chihayafuru with so much focus on poetry needs an AU with magic incantations that might as well be poetry. (And I love the little sweatdrops around Chihaya, the suggestion that she's flailing a little while Kana-chan is holding strong.)
