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!

Title: Jun Does Not Love Tetsu!!
Creator(s): [personal profile] buildstrike
Rating: PG
Major Tags: swearing
Why is this work awesome?: Isashiki Jun, lover of shoujo manga, is absolutely delightful as the textbook tsundere heroine of his own love story. His voice as written is what sells it, and his futile denial of his affection for Tetsu is a blast to watch. The prose is snappy and fun, and I especially love the breaks into ALLCAPS whenever Jun's personal narration overwhelms the more subtle voice of the story narrator.

Title: Chris and Tanba Road Trip UST

Rating: G

Why is this work awesome?: This fic has such a specific, enveloping mood, it really captures the feeling of being in a tiny car, on the road, at the heat of summer. There's a claustrophobic feeling to the prose itself which reflects both the concrete situation the characters are in and the mindset of the narrator, so that Tanba's longing for Chris becomes this lovely, palpable thing. Not to mention, the characterization is spot on and so sympathetic, I love this Tanba voice a lot.

Title: Ryousuke and Tanba Dancing

Why is this work awesome?: This fic is so super cute! The characterization is what sells it, it's Tanba and Ryousuke in an established relationship and they're just so comfortable with each other and with being together, able to make jokes and reference their shared history. I love how Ryousuke is at both unyielding and surprisingly flexible, sticking to his guns about being the one to lead in the dance but also flowing around Tanba as he teases him, it's just an incredibly good and warm and cozy little story.
