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: Hikaru no Go Fic Fills, AkiHika Personal Dress Edition

Title: AkiHika Clothing Swap
Creator(s): [personal profile] psiten
Rating: T
Major Tags: reference to sex, no sexual content
Why is this work awesome?: I adore formal wear and bad fashion in equal measures, and this fic is worth it for its heaping helping of those alone. I love the married couple bickering that is akihika and I love the premise of Hikaru happily sharing his clothes with Akira, but being scandalized by the very idea of being forced to wear Akira's horrible choices in fashion. The best part is undoubtedly the last two lines; I laughed so loudly at this explanation for why Akira dresses the way he does.

Title: AkiHika Haircuts

Why is this work awesome?: This is a fic about Akira letting his hair grow out and that bothering Hikaru for reasons he can't entirely place. I really love it in that it's both delightful for the perfectly in character banter between the two of them and the comfortable place their relationship has settled into, and for what it says about the larger series. I love Akira ending up reminding Hikaru of Sai and how Hikaru needs to process that, but I also just love delightful little things like Hikaru being entirely too weak for Akira in traditional clothing.

Title: Hikaru Buys Akira A Suit
Creator(s): [personal profile] probing_grays

Major Tags: none
Why is this work awesome?: I love every fic about Akira's bad suits, and I love every instance of Akira and Hikaru bickering. This is a fic where they've begun dating a year ago, to Akira's continual surprise, and I really enjoy how it's such a quiet, ordinary moment between them. Their first date was ordinary, and the date they're about to have will be ordinary, and all of this fits in seamlessly with being rivals who challenge each other.
