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 Chihaya/Shinobu Fics, Volume 2 (plus Kana-chan)

Title: Chihaya's Card-Throwing Exercise
Creator(s): [personal profile] psiten
Rating: G
Major Tags: none
Why is this work awesome?: What I love best about this is Psiten's voice for Kanade. She's such a demure, reserved character, something that at first comes off as meekness when she's unable to refuse a request from Chihaya. But as the story proceeds and Chihaya's grand plan for practicing her Karuta unfolds so does Kanade's affection for Chihaya in view of the reader. I love how tangible Kanade's adoration for Chihaya is, even while being tempered by a sort of canniness, a willingness to wait for Chihaya's other entanglements to work themselves out before stepping in for herself.

Title: Chihaya & Shinobu Magic AU
Creator(s): [personal profile] kiyala
Rating: G
Major Tags: none
Why is this work awesome?: What I love best about this fic is the specific atmosphere it captures and how present the world is. Kii establishes an entire universe of magic users where spells have colors and smells and are put together through incantations spoken like poetry, where instead of playing Karuta, Chihaya and Shinobu participate in a Queen Duel every year. I love that the specific scents and colors for both Chihaya and Shinobu's magic and the way they cast magic reflects on their character, and I love how much respect and admiration they clearly hold for each other.

Title: Chihaya and Shinobu Fated to Cross Paths
Creator(s): [personal profile] kiyala
Rating: G

Why is this work awesome?: I really enjoy this fic for the extended metaphor about Chihaya and Shinobu being fated to cross paths, "as it is written in the stars." It's a tiny moment between Chihaya and Shinobu, captured in beautiful language and descriptive turn of phrase. My favorite line is probably "Chihaya is an explorer, armed with nothing but a folding telescope, a star chart, and all the determination she can muster," because it fits in perfectly with the metaphor the piece is founded upon, but is also such an apt description of Chihaya as a character.
