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: Fukutomi Takes the Girls' Team to the Finish
Creator(s): [personal profile] hapaxlegomenon
Rating: G
Major Tags: cisswap
Why is this work awesome?: What I love most with cisswaps is seeing the subtle differences between a version of a character socialized as a boy, and the version of that same character socialized as a girl, and this fic delivers on that desire in a really clever way. It takes Fukutomi's canon habit of bleaching his hair "because it's strong" and turns it into girl Fukutomi shaving her head at the start of each season. But more than that, it uses this habit to talk about who Fukutomi is as a character, and to show the way her teammates support her through their choice to each make a change to their hair when it comes time for Fukutomi to perform her usual ritual. All the little details are fabulous; as someone who loves prose about things done to hair, this story made me so, so happy.

Title: Fukutomi's Remorse for Kinjou's Injury
Creator(s): [personal profile] kiyala
Rating: G
Major Tags: mentions of permanent injury
Why is this work awesome?: This fic is a sharp little moment of pain, packaged down into just under 500 words. It's the "what if" of what would happen if Kinjou's injury in second year had been worse, if it was bad enough to end his racing career, and what sells it is definitely the character voice. Kinjou's frustration is palpable in the prose even from Fukutomi's point of view, building as the scene progresses to its high point; if you'd like to feel someone twist the knife with Kinjou's injury, this fic is it.

Title: Nekomimi Kinjou and Makishima
Creator(s): [personal profile] kiyala
Rating: G
Major Tags: none
Why is this work awesome?: The best thing about this fic is the body language and nonverbal communication. I for one really love cats and the ways cats communicate, and this is a cute little story in which cat-person Makishima just wants to groom cat-person Kinjou a little, while Kinjou tries not to embarrass him for it. What's really great about that is how the premise approaches their relationship: they each understand the other really well, and can read the truer meaning beneath the ordinary things the other says, and that's delightful, that sort of easy comfort between two people.
