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: ManaTe Old Gods
Creator(s): [personal profile] hapaxlegomenon
Rating: M
Major Tags: supernatural elements, violence, gore, mentions of torture, amputation, consensual dismemberment, vomiting
Why is this work awesome?: I adore this story for the rich mythology it creates, explaining the existence and origins of the old gods who the reader will recognize as Hakone's inter-high team of aces. Definitely mind the tags; the amputation scene got quite the visceral reaction out of me, but that's another thing that I love. Pax's prose is rich and evocative and really great for establishing the "folk tale" mood of this story. It's told by Teshima and he is very much the storyteller, I really do recommend this one highly.

Title: ManaTe Robot Gore
Creator(s): [personal profile] doxian
Rating: T
Major Tags: body horror, (robot) gore, amputation
Why is this work awesome?: I love the way Doxy creates an entire world in silhouette within the limited space of this story. The reader is given only a small piece of the bigger picture, and as the story unfolds, they learn more about Teshima the mechanic, and meet Manami the mechanized unit of war. The cameo from Koga is great and the little peeks at the backstories of all three characters are delightful, but what I enjoy most of all is Doxy's voice for Teshima and the great banter between him and Manami.

Title: Shinkai Hayato and Yuuto Bury a Body
Creator(s): [personal profile] thehauntedboy
Rating: T
Major Tags: blood, violence, murder, vomiting (mild)
Why is this work awesome?: I love the way this fic is set up, the way it leads with the idea that Shinkai would do anything for Yuuto and follows all the way through with it to the worst possible conclusion. Shinkai is the one who deals with the burying even though Yuuto was the one to actually kill a man; that fact unfolds slowly, through flashback, as the present scene continues inexorably on and as Shinkai tells his sister how they're going to handle things from the current point on. I love all the little details, the bits of sensory description, the feeling of Shinkai's unease. It's dense and claustrophobic ina really good, unsettling way.
