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: Yowapeda Fic Fills

Title: Miyahara and Witch Miki
Creator(s): [personal profile] dynamite
Rating: G
Major Tags: implied injury/death
Why is this work awesome?: I love the premise that Lin sets up with this fic, right from the beginning. Miyahara is meeting with Miki to make a bargain and she knows how important that is, knows that she needs something to trade and is grasping desperately for anything in her possession which might have value. I love the way Lin incorporates the bits of canon she does, especially the fact that Miyahara does not have a canonical first name. And I really love the language, it's at once crisp and poetic, giving this story an ethereal mood befitting of a visit to a witch.

Title: Teshima's Party Con On Manami
Creator(s): [personal profile] hqqt
Rating: M
Major Tags: violence, blood, alcohol mention, sadism, main character death
Why is this work awesome?: Firstly, heed the warnings. If anything mentioned doesn't sound like your cup of tea, you're likely in for a bad time. But if you enjoy really fascinating worldbuilding that's conveyed in silhouette more than it's presented directly, where you feel compelled to keep reading just to learn more about the way these characters exist in a new setting full of fancy parties and menace and danger, this fic is a delight. I love all the little details and I love the characterization of both Manami and Teshima in this — Manami has a bit of the unreliable narrator to them, and Teshima is just so earnest in his effacing, desperate sort of way. There's a lot of good language and really good lines, and the ending in particular hits home so well.

Title: Kinjou Kicks Arakita's Ass at Beer Pong
Creator(s): [personal profile] psiten
Rating: T
Major Tags: adult language, alcohol, sexual situations
Why is this work awesome?: This is a fic worth reading just for the alternate application of Kinjou's slight-of-hand dexterity from doing magic tricks. I love the concept of Kinjou destroying everyone at beer pong and I especially love how Psiten pulls it off, told through Arakita's skeptical, scoffing perspective. Psiten's Arakita voice is truly a delight, rough around the edges, grumpy, and snappish, but with a lot of heart underneath, and their Kinjou is a perfect gentleman. And I personally really appreciate that Kinjou is too conscientious to do anything with Arakita while he's drunk; the morning after scene at the end is its own little reward.
