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 3 (Lin appreciation addition feat. AUs)

Title: Chihaya/Shinobu Persona 4 AU
Creator(s): [personal profile] dynamite
Rating: G
Major Tags: none
Why is this work awesome?: This fic is beautiful for its imagery and the way it incorporates the mythology from the hundred poems — most specifically Chihaya's namesake poem — into its universe. A knowledge of persona four isn't required to understand the fic; the premise of Chihaya saving a corrupted Shinobu from being a shadow version of herself stands on its own. I'm also really fond of the description of their powers, because Chihaya IS fire and Shinobu IS ice and the way that is depicted in the prose is lovely.

Why is this work awesome?: The thing I love most about this fic is the imagery, the descriptions of Shinobu's hands moving through the air like a thousand needles, or her eyes blue like deep winter ice hanging from sunlit roofs. I also love that in a universe where Shinobu sometimes turns into a demon bent on hunting Chihaya down, she still loves both sides of Shinobu. It's very Chihaya, to want to rise to a challenge, to love something because it's difficult and takes passion.

Why is this work awesome?: With this fic I once again adore the way Lin blends the canon world of Chihayafuru with the crossover game world. There are so many little details: Omi Jingu, Shinobu believing in friendship with the karuta cards, Shinobu and Chihaya loving King Frost for looking like Snowmaru, that pull the two series together. Reading this fic is like unwrapping a present, slicing through the lovely, vivid prose to get at everything Lin has woven into it.
