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, Hiruma/Agon Edition

Title: Hiruma/Agon, How Cards Are Played
Creator(s): [personal profile] queenschnee
Rating: T
Major Tags: swearing
Why is this work awesome?: I love this fic as a character study. It's nominally Hiruma/Agon, because it hinges on Hiruma comparing himself to Agon, the ways he comes up lacking in what the universe has dealt him as well as the ways he surpasses Agon through his own hard work and intelligence, but this is a character-driven piece first and foremost. I adore Hiruma as a character and I adore how he's portrayed here, resilient till the end and well aware that what cards you're dealt doesn't matter nearly as much as how you play them.

Title: Hiruma and Agon Periodically Fuck

Why is this work awesome?: The best thing about Agon and Hiruma as a ship is the aggression and the headgames they each bring to the relationship, and this fic delivers excellently on both counts. I love the familiarity, the fact that what starts the interaction is something that Hiruma has done before, and I love Kat's voice for both characters. There's a little hint at breathplay with I consider a plus, and some really great language, especially the last line.

Title: Hiruma/Agon Good Omens AU
Creator(s): [personal profile] putsch
Rating: T
Major Tags: implied sexual content, implied violence, biblical content
Why is this work awesome?: I adore this fic for everything it manages to do in such a small space, I adore Agon as the angel who fell versus Hiruma as the one who didn't and just, the entire nature of the AU. I love that this contrast between them is a thread woven through the whole fic, something Hiruma harps on — I expected it'd only take you a millenia, but it took two! — and which Agon himself keeps returning to, trying to figure out why Hiruma didn't. There are so many good details, both things translated from canon (Hiruma's black book of blackmail/sins) and written fresh into the prose, and Kat's characterization of both Agon and Hiruma is spot on and bell-clear. There isn't a lot of content in fandom for this ship and this is exactly what I want to see for it.
