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: Eyeshield 21 Fills, Cute Shin/Sena Fics Edition

Title: Sena's Crush on Shin

Why is this work awesome?: This fic is super cute, and such a fun way to come at Sena's crush on Shin! I love the particular absurdity captured by the dream sequences, and I especially love the way Ami writes Shin, especially in the dreams, where even in Sena's subconscious Shin is his usual blunt, too-direct self. I love the matchmaking by Monta and Sakuraba (and I love how good the characterization of everyone, even the "minor" characters, is!) and I love the way the premise resolves. My favorite detail is definitely the bit where Sena realizes Shin is looking uncertain for the first time he's ever seen, and how Sena empathizes with that because he's unsure of himself all the time. It's just such a lovely contrast of how they are as people.

Title: Shin/Sena Race to the Draft Together

Why is this work awesome?: I love how easy this moment between Shin and Sena is. Racing together is something familiar and practiced they've gotten into the habit of doing, and even though Shin has something he wants to tell Sena, in typical Shin fashion he doesn't allow that to interfere with their routine. I love that he's more excited by competing against Sena alone than he is even by competing against him in football, and I love the quiet tenderness the scene ends with.

Title: Shin/Sena Go To Training Camp Together

Why is this work awesome?: I love this because it's domestic fic, and that's perfectly catered to my interests. It's future fic where Shin and Sena are living together and Sena leaves cooked meals for Shin, sometimes (characters cooking for each other, more like: my weakness), when they're both invited to an American football training camp. I love that Sena just leaves the letter out for Shin because that's something he can do when they're living together, and I love the small details of characterization, like how specific Shin is with his routine, and how Sena has a practiced signal for "you're hugging too tight, please stop." It's a really cute fic.
