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!

Title: Manami Sends Teshima A Leg

Why is this work awesome?: This is such a weird fill which makes the most sense when you know a few fandom inside jokes, but that's what's delightful about it. I love how intent Teshima's face is and how he's in this sort of defensive, ready-to-attack crouch, as if the dismembered leg he's holding is a weapon. I'm also really fond of the color scheme with all the purple, it's just unexpectedly soothing to look at.

Title: Manami's Enviable Leg Collection

Why is this work awesome?: (FYI, the image links in the original comment are broken now but if you click them, lead to the actual images, here is the main one, with a link that should work.) Weird premise of Teshima being in a den full of legs mounted like taxidermy aside (and I do love that as well because I love WEIRD), what I love best about this is the colors. Chess always makes such vibrant, unexpected color choices and this piece is a great example of that; I love hte light on the mounted legs and on Teshima's own, still attached legs the most.

Title: Manami Amputates His Leg

Major Tags: imminent dismemberment/self-harm
Why is this work awesome?: I love the immediacy of this, the visceral sense of it being this moment before Teshima does somethng drastic. I love the soft, stark coloring, the palette that's all grays and blues, and I love the saw being held in Teshima's teeth as he yanks the belt tight with his hands; it really drives hom exactly what he plans to do (amputate his damn leg, that is.)
