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 Fic Fills, Rival Teams Edition

Title: Tetsuma Joe/Kid, Getting Good At It
Creator(s): [personal profile] phantomwised
Rating: G
Major Tags: none
Why is this work awesome?: What I love best about this fic is the even, steady pace of it, the way Tetsuma and Shien's practicing draws them closer and closer into a parallel rhythm with each throw. The author's characterization of Tetsuma is really nice, straight-forward and loyal, and the moment when they kiss is delightfully tender. I love the last line, that football isn't something just Shien could be good at, but something they could be really good at; I love how it solidifies the even feel of their partnership.

Title: Tetsuma Joe/Kid, Growing Up From Kids

Rating: G
Major Tags: implied child abuse (depending on read)
Why is this work awesome?: I really adore this fic for how it portrays the beginning of Tetsuma and Shien's relationship, when they first met each other. There's such a difference between the heir of a wealthy family and the son of one of their servants and the way Shien draws Tetsuma out in that context is really rewarding; it feels good to watch them bond over football. I also love Tetsuma's characterization; it would be easy to flatten someone as straightforward and obedient as him but here there's a sharpness to him, and a gentleness that comes through when he shows concern for Shien in his own way. And the ending is just, bringing things full circle. This fic is such a rewarding take on the growth of their relationship.

Title: Mizumachi Gifts Himself
Creator(s): [personal profile] amisgurumis
Rating: T
Major Tags: nudity, mention of naked nether regions, bad seduction
Why is this work awesome?: The best thing about this fic is hands-down the single line of dialogue where Mizumachi asks Kakei, "(Are you) ready for a weekend of wild sexual misadventures?" It so perfectly encapsulates the kind of relationship they have, which is also well-documented in this fic. Mizumachi wraps himself up like a gift and climbs into a box stuffed with flower petals just to surprise his boyfriend; it's a hilarious, undeniably silly read. I love that Kakei is just used to stuff like this from Mizumachi and that even while ordering him to clean up his mess, he doesn't deny the request for sexy activity outright.
