(A link to the evidence post, should you need to use it.)

  1. If nominating characters on their own, nominate in the form "Character & None". Tags in the form "Character & Any" won't be permitted.
  2. Nominations including original characters will not be accepted.

Kings (TV 2009)
  • Michelle Benjamin/David Shepherd - This has 34 complete, English works. Multiple pairings are tagged in many of these, and some are crossovers, so it has not been rejected immediately. If you nominated this ship, please provide evidence for why there are ten or fewer valid works.

Fire Emblem
  • Flavia/My Unit | Reflet | Robin, Izana/My Unit | Kamui | Corrin, My Unit | Kamui | Corrin/Nyx, My Unit | Kamui | Corrin/Rinkah, My Unit | Kamui | Corrin/Yuugiri | Reina. - These tags have migrated. We are unsure whether they were originally nominated under Fates or Awakening.

Multiple fandoms
  • The nominations listed here which are formatted as "Character & Any" have not yet been adjusted by the nominator. Unfortunately, due to the way the AO3 approval interface works, the presence of these tags is making it difficult for us to process new nominations. If these tags remain in the same format 24 hours from the time of this post, we will adjust them all to the "Character & None" style.
    • In addition to those listed previously, three more relationships formatted "Character & Any" have been nominated under "Lamento -BEYOND THE VOID-". They are Firi (Lamento) & Any, Froud (Lamento) & Any, and Kagari (Lamento) & Any. They too will be adjusted if not changed within 24 hours.

Nominations clarifications remaining from previous posts are below (under the cut).

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (TV 2016); Mass Effect Trilogy; Voltron: Legendary Defender  )

Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes
  • Bruce Banner | Hulk/Clint Barton (EMH) - with filters applied, this pairing seems to have 24 works. There are several crossovers, but please provide evidence to support this nomination.

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (TV 2016)
  • Cross & Gripps & Martin & Vogel - Under the tag 'The Rowdy 3', there are 55 works after filtering. If you nominated this, please provide evidence for rarity.

Marvel Cinematic Universe
  • Rumiko Fujikawa/Tony Stark - with filters applied, this pairing has 21 works. Leaving aside the 4 in which the tag is modified with "past" or "mentioned", this still leaves 17. If you nominated this, please provide evidence for rarity.

Mass Effect Trilogy
  • Female Shepard/Male Shepard - with filters applied, this pairing seems to have 13 works from 7 different authors. Please provide evidence (e.g. that it is a background pairing in three or more of them).

1bitHeart (Video Game), Animamundi Dark Alchemist, Blaze Union, Deadly Premonition | Red Seeds Profile, Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance, End Roll (Video Game), Fate/stay night & Related Fandoms, Gatchaman Crowds

Please adjust the following nominations (listed under the cut), which are in the form "Character & Any", to specify particular characters or to a single character nomination ("Character & None"):

Anne of Avonlea (Sullivan Movies)
  • 'Anne of Avonlea (Sullivan Movies)' was nominated. Do you mean 'Anne of Avonlea (TV)'?

Star Trek: The Next Generation; Star Trek: Voyager
  • Please adjust the following nominations to specify holograms of one or more particular officers.
    • "Reginald Barclay/Canon Hologram of Any Enterprise Male Officer" is nominated under Star Trek: The Next Generation
    • "Reginald Barclay/Canon Hologram of Any Voyager Male Officer" is nominated under Star Trek: Voyager.

A Stitch in Time
  • Julian Bashir/Elim Garak - We are unsure that this canon is different enough from DS9 for the ship to qualify. If you nominated this, please provide evidence for rarity.

Voltron: Legendary Defender
  • Chuchule & Chulatt & Plachu & Platt - Under the tag 'Space Mice', there are 75 works after filtering. If you nominated this, please provide evidence for rarity.

The Youngblood Chronicles (Music Video)
  • Patrick Stump's Character & None - 'Patrick Stump's Character' seems to be used synonymously with 'Patrick Stump' in the fandom tag. That tag has 34 works after filtering. If you nominated this, please provide evidence for rarity.

Nominations open here!

Are you nominating a fandom, character or relationship that may appear ineligible? Please use this post to submit evidence that it qualifies under our rules. It would be a good idea to post here if your fandom, character or relationship has more than 10 works (complete, in English) but:
  • They have been written by five authors or fewer
  • They contain crossovers
  • Your nominated character/relationship is not the main character/relationship in some of those works.
Evidence that will not be considered for eligibility is word count or archive-locking of tagged fics.

For more information on what fandoms, characters and relationships are eligible, please see the rules post.

A suggested template for your post:

If something you've nominated has already been rejected, please leave a comment on the Rejected Nominations Post.

Thanks to everyone who nominated! We still have some outstanding questions to get certain things into the tagset the right way.

A few notes:

  • Please everyone check your nominations in the tagset, especially if you nominated in a fandom with multiple subfandoms. Some things from the initial round of nominations got moved around by tag migration, and while we attempted to put everything where it belonged, let us know if we got it wrong.

  • Some relationships were moved to a higher level fandom, such as from Agents of SHIELD to the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe, if not all characters appeared in the subfandom. Rather than reject your relationship as a crossover, we bumped it upward to a broader fandom tag.



  1. Would the person who nominated The Hobbit - All Media Types please let us know if there are any missing relationships?

  3. As far as we can tell, Cassandra Cain and Harleen Quinzel do not appear in DC Super Hero Girls. Where were they supposed to be nominated?

  5. Would the nominator of the Henry IV plays by Shakespeare please contact us? We are not sure how these were originally nominated.

  7. In Hetalia: Axis Powers, we cannot find the characters Vichy and Marianne listed anywhere. Could they be alternate names or nicknames?

  9. In Wild ARMs 3, we cannot find the character Leknat listed anywhere. Is this character canonical/native to the canon?




I'm trying another format to see if I can get help sorting out these Marvel noms. These are the potential nominations by fandom. If you nominated any of these relationships under a particular fandom, please respond and confirm which fandoms. All of these relationships had experienced AO3 fandom tag migration and appeared under multiple fandom tags.


Marvel Cinematic Universe )


Marvel (Comics) )


Marvel 616 )


Marvel Noir )


X-Force )


Ultimate Spider-Man (Cartoon) )


The Amazing Spider-Man (Movies - Webb) )
If we don't hear one way or the other before sign-ups open, we'll use our best judgment to place those relationships.

Nominations are closed! Sunday night, we will post our final list of clarifications questions, as well as a list of rejected nominations. At that point, you can challenge any rejection.

Thank you for all the awesome nominations!

Submit your nominations here!

We've finished migrating fandoms and relationships from the original tagset to our new, revised tagset. We have a rather long list of clarification questions, just to be certain your nominations land where you wanted, so please take a look.

A few notes:
  • Some relationships have been removed from the tagset. These relationships were either crossovers (ineligible for this year) or had a fic/author count over the limit. However, if you believe a relationship you nominated should not have been removed (or was forgotten), please comment here. You can also contact us via email or the page-a-mod post.

  • Most of the relationships requiring clarification have not been migrated yet. Once we know where to place them, we will add them.

  • We've tried to catch all crossover and ineligible relationships, but a few might have slipped past us. If you see a relationship you feel doesn't belong, please let us know.

  • You may notice we frequently used parentheticals to note a specific fandom. Don't worry, we won't move your nominations around. Sometimes, when two fandoms share a character or relationship, those tags will wander away from where they were nominated. This stops this from happening.
