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 OT3 Fic Fills, Volume 2

Title: Taichi Protests Arata (And Chihaya's) Rustbucket Car
Creator(s): [personal profile] flippinflakes
Rating: G
Major Tags: none
Why is this work awesome?: This fic is such a pleasant, domestic moment between these three, and I really enjoy that. I enjoy Arata mimicking Chihaya to tease her, all three of them bickering about whether the old car really was a rust bucket while examining the new, and I love Chihaya's eager enthusiasm to take it for a spin — if she can drive first. Plus Taichi and Arata cuddling in the back before scolding her for inattention to the road is just precious.

Title: Taichi and Chihaya and Arata's Life of Crime

Why is this work awesome?: What I love most about this fic is that even as criminals, Taichi, Chihaya, and Arata each have their specialty, and the things they're each good at fit together and complement each other. I love that what they do is counterfeit paintings to sell as the real thing, and I love what each of their skills as a forger says about them as a character. But most of all I love that this is something they do together and how in love they're portrayed as being, and I adore Arata marking Taichi and Chihaya with the paint because he can't sign the paintings, but he can still leave something behind, here.

Title: Taichi Bets on 50/50 Draws

Why is this work awesome?: I adore this fic for the sheer attention to detail and outright love with which the karuta is portrayed. Psiten knows the game intimately and that lends an amazing verisimilitude to their voice for Taichi as he's in the moment, focused on each card, focused on what dead cards are left and what might possibly be read. I love how well this captures Taichi as a calculator brain, as someone constantly analyzing, assessing, and I love how this builds the tension of the match. The way the chihayaburu card is brought into the story made me sincerely choke up with tears; this is a beautifully executed story and a lovely character piece, and the presence of the OT3 subtly underneath is likewise delightful.
