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: Imaizumi and Teshima Gundam AU
Creator(s): [personal profile] dynamite
Rating: T
Major Tags: implied character death, guns, minor violence
Why is this work awesome?: I love how much history and baggage Lin manages to fit into such a short space with this story. It doesn't require a knowledge of any Gundam series to appreciate; Lin paints that world in as a backdrop to the conflict between Teshima and Imaizumi, a conflict that's sharp-edged and fascinating and painful. I love Lin's language; there are a lot of lovely lines and the way she puts scenes together really keeps the tension going.

Title: Arakita and Toudou Take a Road Trip
Creator(s): [personal profile] princesssid
Rating: G
Major Tags: swearing
Why is this work awesome?: My favorite thing about this fic is the way it characterizes Arakita and Toudou's relationship. It's something fledgling and new, which they're putting to the test on a road trip, and there's this really fascinating feeling of fragility that comes through in the story as the reader puts the pieces together. It's also a really dialogue-driven story, which I find to be a lot of fun, conveyed through crisp, spare prose and a great voice for both characters.

Title: Aya and Miki Street Racing AU
Creator(s): [personal profile] dynamite
Rating: G
Major Tags: none
Why is this work awesome?: What I love about this little fic is the way Lin beautifully sets the stage for the AU, before zeroing in on the characters. The imagery is lovely and the language is tight and clever, and I adore the picture of Miki that's painted here. It's a first meeting, but a lot of Miki's history is evoked through just a few lines, and the fact that one of the kernels of that is family is really great.
