We have been working on the tag set for 102.5 hours, and the number of individual fandom nominations has gone down from 5058 to 1660. There are 2054 approved fandoms now in the tag set.

Thank you for your answers to the previous queries! We have some more, and some lingering:


Дуэлянт | The Duelist (2016) - We can't find Pyotr Yakovlev's brother. Could the nominator please confirm he appears in the film?

Extraction (2013) - We can't find a Victor. Could the nominator please confirm he appears in the film?

灵契 | Ling Qi | Spiritpact - This has been nominated with overlapping characters, using Japanese and Chinese names respectively: You Keika, Tanmoku Ki, Tanmoku Rakugetsu, and You Nei; and Yang Jinghua, Duanmu Xi, Duanmu Siming, and Qin Siyao. Could each nominator please confirm which media they mean, and can we please combine these character names using one of the versions?

No Game No Life - Kamiya Yuu - we're a little confused by the character 『 』| Kuuhaku | Blank. Could the nominator please give their reasoning for nominating this character separately?

A Place to Call Home (TV) - We can't find the character Tom. Could the nominator please give us a pointer?

Plantagenets Series - Sharon Kay Penman - For Geoffrey Plantagenet, could the nominator please confirm they mean Geoffrey V Count of Anjou, or some other character?

Six of Crows Series - Leigh Bardugo - It's not clear to us that Nikolai Lantsov belongs here. Could the nominator please give us their reasoning?

Smosh - the characters nominated are Keith Leak Jr., Noah Grossman, Olivia Sui, and Shayne Topp. Could the nominator please clarify if this is a nomination for RPF, or for fictionalized characters that share the names of the real people?

Sylvester or the Wicked Uncle - Georgette Heyer For Lady Marlow, could the nominator please confirm whether they mean Lady Verena Marlow or Lady Constance Marlow?

These Old Shades - Georgette Heyer - As far as we can tell, Dominic Alastair does not appear in this book. (He is also nominated in The Devil's Cub.) Could the nominator please give their reasoning for nominating him here?

Trial and Error (TV 2017) - We can't find the character Anne Cox. Could the nominator please confirm and give us pointers to when she appeared?

isis: Write what you're told! (micah wright)
[personal profile] isis
Hopefully if you're planning on signing up for [community profile] trickortreatex you've already done so, as sign-ups close in under 3 hours. (Of course, you can always write treats!) I've been diddling with my offers but I think I'm set. Ordinarily I think of it as warm-up for [community profile] yuletide, but considering that I've been doing a lot of exchanges recently (maybe too many) it's not exactly that for me this year!

Speaking of exchanges-in-progress, I've got the next two weeks to finish my [community profile] femslashex fic - I finally got a good grip on what I want to write and it's going like gangbusters now - and to incorporate beta changes into my [community profile] crossovering fic. Then it will be time to write whatever I get assigned for [community profile] trickortreatex, and to sign up for [community profile] yuletide. Whew!

But one exchange is done and dusted, and that is [community profile] remixrevival! There are two remixes of my work, one in the main exchange and one in madness, both in Raven Cycle fandom, and I have no idea if they are by different people, though each was done with a different approach. And even though this isn't a gift exchange, I'm delighted by both of them and happily ticked the "link to this related work" button, because they're both great, and I enjoyed reading them even though I'm not really in the fandom any more.

But to return, and view the cheerful skies (1727 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Raven Cycle - Maggie Stiefvater
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Ronan Lynch/Adam Parrish
Characters: Ronan Lynch, Adam Parrish
Additional Tags: Post-Canon, Long-Distance Relationship, Murder Squash Song, Remix
Summary: Come visit, Adam didn’t say, because at some point before he even met Ronan, he had set himself this idiotic challenge: he would do everything he could to prove to himself that he could make it alone.

This is a sequel to a ficlet I wrote for [personal profile] jain a few years ago for [community profile] fandom_stocking, but it also stands alone as an exploration of the same basic idea (so therefore it's a legit remix), and the author very subtly brought it into compliance with the last book in the series, which hadn't been published at the time I wrote the original. Stylistically it's fabulous (and exactly the style I love to read), the details are delightful, and the ending made me grin a little and tear up a little and I'm not even in the fandom any more.

Disappearing Act (the Smarter than I Look remix) (950 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Raven Cycle - Maggie Stiefvater
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Noah Czerny/Joseph Kavinsky
Characters: Noah Czerny, Joseph Kavinsky, Ronan Lynch, Richard Gansey III
Additional Tags: Non-Consensual Oral Sex, Ghost Sex, Supernatural Elements
Summary:

Kavinsky's still around, which means he's still dangerous. There are ways to change that. But they're not fun.

This is a remix of a nasty little noncon story I originally wrote as a kinkmeme fill, but what's brilliant about it is that the author used a POV shift to completely change the meaning of the original story, revealing the original POV as an unreliable narrator. This is one of my favorite devices in fiction - it's a feature of the brilliant Iain Pears book An Instance of the Fingerpost, and I've used it in remixes before - and it shows that Noah has agency, rather than being the victim.

While I'm talking remixes, have a few recs:

Underworld (the Etruscan pottery remix) (5 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Etruscan Mythology
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Original Female Character/Original Female Character
Characters: Original Female Character(s), Vanth (Etruscan Mythology), Karun (Etruscan Mythology), Tuchulcha (Etruscan Mythology)
Additional Tags: Digital Art, Fanart, Etruscan mythology - Freeform, Red-figure vase painting, Underworld
Summary: "I could not leave you here alone," Thana said./Velia folded her hands over Thana's. "I wanted you to live, my love."/"I know," Thana said. "But I could not leave you here."

This is beautiful fanart, which makes a bit more sense after you've read the (linked) original story, which is a sort of f/f Orpheus story, also very good and makes sense even if you're not familiar with Etruscan mythology.

Down the Garden Path (and what Alice found there) (4517 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 5/5
Fandom: Alice In Wonderland - Lewis Carroll
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Alice (Alice in Wonderland)
Additional Tags: Dreams and Nightmares, Dreams vs. Reality, Non-Linear Narrative, Board Games, Pastiche, Poetry, journeys, Nursery Rhymes, Werewolves
Summary: Alice throws a six, and finds herself on the square of the hypotenuse. But she's been here before, and she'll be here again, and perhaps she's already here...

This amazing expansion of the original ficlet is fantastic, in both literal and figurative senses. The early bits are perfect pastiche of Carroll's nonsense, and then the later chapters are really quite transcendental, bringing sense to the nonsense and gathering all the elements together in a lovely way.

Of course I wrote something for the exchange as well, though it's unlikely that you'll stumble over it unless you know the fandom. I'll post about it when works are revealed next week.

While waiting for the last of my nominated Yuletide fandoms to make it through the eye of the needle, I thought I'd make a post about my AU Exchange fic - which I keep thinking of as my Norse Wonder Woman fic, because the prompt asked for a Wonder Woman au, where she was from another mythology than Greek, and, well, the mythology I know best and have the least worries about playing with is Norse, so...

Chooser of the Slain (4248 words) by oneiriad
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Wonder Woman (2017)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Diana (Wonder Woman)/Steve Trevor
Characters: Diana (Wonder Woman), Steve Trevor
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Norse Religion & Lore, Alternate Origin Story, Canonical Character Death
Summary: She was born on the day when the great wolf Sköll devoured the Sun.
When the day turned unexpectedly into night, the Maiden King Jófast cried out in the pain of her labour, and when the light returned, a far smaller voice came with it.
They named the girl Dís.

[personal profile] morbane posting in [community profile] yuletide_admin

Please help us with the following issues and queries!

Wheel of Time - Robert Jordan - Both Elan Morin Tedroni and Ishamael | Moridin are nominated; other Forsaken are nominated with their original names. Please either explain why you think they should be separated out, or confirm we can approve both tags as Elan Morin Tedroni.

Expert Judgment on Markers to Deter Inadvertent Human Intrusion... - Sandia Labs - As far as we can tell, Color Changing Cat is not actually from this canon, but a different exercise in considering the problems of long-term nuclear waste storage - see http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_eye/2014/05/14/_99_percent_invisible_by_roman_mars_designing_warning_symbols_for_the_nation.html. Could you please let us know if we’ve missed the cats, or if there’s another reason you believe they should be included.


Ensemble characters
We will accept labels like “the Council” or “the hunters” for characters in cases where the ensemble does not have different distinct characters in it.

  • Captive Prince - C. S. Pacat: Veretian Council

  • The Darkness (Comics): Darklings (The Darkness)

If you notice any problems with your approved nominations - mis-spellings, etc - feel free to comment on this post.


*(NB: that’s not because we rejected ~900, but because 5058 and 3086 are totals of how often the fandom slot was filled out by nominators - whether or not they nominated the same fandom. When we approve a fandom that was nominated by two people, the total number of fandom nominations goes down by 2, and the approved fandom total goes up by 1.)

Bat/Stegelmann tirsdag

Så er det jo allerede på tirsdag, at [personal profile] noracharles, [personal profile] blnchflr og undertegnede har billetter til at se Jakob Stegelmanns oplæg om superhelte og Batman i Cinemateket.

Arrangementet er kl. 19. i Cinemateket, og jeg tænkte på, om I (og eventuelle andre, som ikke kunne lokkes med til Batman *cough*[personal profile] lysanatt*cough*) ville være interesserede i at finde noget at spise inden showet? I området omkring Nørreport og/eller Gothersgade?

Dear Trick-or-Treater!

I like: historical (if appropriate) and worldbuildy detail, scenery porn, what-if AUs, original characters, time travel, bodyswap, ghost/afterlife stories, mythological and supernatural elements, and magical realism. I like gen, het, slash, and femslash. In general I'm not a fan of AU that completely changes the setting, but if you have a brilliant idea, go for it; I would prefer "interesting" to "mundane" AUs, e.g., in SPAAAACE yes, coffeeshop no. (Coffeeshop in SPAAAACE, okay!).

In fic: I prefer past tense to present tense, though don't feel constrained by this preference if your story really wants to be in present tense. I don't really care for second-person narration, but again, feel free to slip this preference if you have a fantastic idea. I'm happy with epistolary fic. I like lots of dialogue. If you want to create IF, go for it!

In art: I like both serious portraits and funny little cartoons. I have a soft spot for art in which one character is doing something typical-but-alarming, and the other is rolling his or her eyes, or reacting with horror, or getting ready to douse them with a bucket of water, or whatever. Stylistically, I love interesting and experimental compositions, unusual perspectives, emphasis on textures such as hair and clothing, and scenery porn (Mountains! Trees! Cliffs with water crashing on them! Brooding ruins of an ancient castle!) and I like line drawings as well as full color.

Tricks I would like: ghost stories (either scary or sweet), supernatural elements, afterlife stories, relationships between living characters and ghosts/spirits/supernatural entities, meddling deities, magical objects that do surprising things. I don't care for explicit horror, but I like mildly spooky things. In general I prefer happy endings, but see individual fandoms.

Treats I would like: romance, friendship, wacky hijinks, first kisses, first times (of anything), comedy of errors, matchmaking. Please don't add in any unrequested background non-canonical relationship. Explicit sex okay, non-explicit sex is okay, no sex is okay, but any sex should be in believable language for that era or fandom. UST, gen, whatever. It's all good. I certainly like explicit sex in fic, but I prefer more focus on the emotions than the physical mechanics, and my preferences are fairly vanilla: mouths, hands, genitals, toys, all are fine, but I'm not into BSDM or bloodplay or watersports or anything that might get a special tag.

I would prefer not to receive explicit horror (fic or art), any kink you'd specifically tag, or artwork that depicts explicit sex (NSFW R-rated is fine, NC17 showing genitals is not). I do not want any fic focusing on pregnancy, children, or with the A/B/O trope.

And now onto the specific fandoms. Please note that prompts may be spoilery. Also, I tend to go rather light on prompts, because if I had particular ideas, I'd write them myself! If none of my vague ideas appeal to you, I assure you that as long as you incorporate things I have said I like, and avoid things I have listed as dislikes, I will be happy with whatever you choose to create.

17776: What Football Will Look Like in the Future - Jon Bois (Juice, Nine, Ten) )

The Mark of the Horse Lord - Rosemary Sutcliff (Conory, Murna, Midir, Phaedrus) )

Old Kingdom - Garth Nix (Original Clayr, Lirael, Nicholas, Sameth) )

The Shining Company - Rosemary Sutcliff (Prosper, Faelinn) )

Wiedźmin | The Witcher (videogame) (Cirilla, Cerys, Sylvia Anna | Syanna) )

Final number of nominations: 5058

That means that at least 1686 people nominated.

We now move into the sorting phase. Over the next days you will see the fandoms and characters you nominated being approved or rejected. You will also see us make posts here, asking for clarification.

Whenever we have enough questions for a new clarification post, we will move unanswered questions into the new post.. This is to help us keep track of which things are outstanding and prevent us from missing comments on older posts. You can help by keeping an eye on the community and helping to answer questions. The first question post will be up soon.

The evidence post is now closed, and we'll be using the evidence to review fandoms. Thank you to everyone who took the time to submit evidence.

If you are looking at your nominations page and you see that a character has been rejected, it may be that it has been approved under a different name (for example, with a fandom-specific disambiguation). Please wait until the tagset is public before raising the issue.

Lastly, please don't hammer AO3 trying to check if your fandoms have been reviewed. Doing this will only slow things down. We're not saying don’t check, but don’t sit there pressing F5. The tagset will be visible after sorting; at that point you can help us find what problems remain.

Because there is a time delay in the IFTTT service that crossposts from LJ/DW to Twitter/Tumblr, we will not post a further warning here.

What I've recently finished reading:

Anya's Ghost by Vera Brosgol. Short graphic novel that is a bit darker than I had expected. Well done and a quick, entertaining read.

The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan, which is book 1 in the Trials of Apollo series. I didn't even know about this series until someone mentioned it in relation to the Percy Jackson and Magnus Chase books! I love how these book series interweave. Riordan's genius is in humor that is both silly and poignant, with heartfelt sentiment at its core. The god Apollo may be a total jerk, but as a human teen he is forced to confront his egoism and poor choices of the past, and maybe he'll come out of it a better, er, god. (Also, I am so pleased by the setup for the next book, and am anxiously awaiting my library hold to come through!)

What I'm reading now:

I'm still sort of poking at Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders, but if it doesn't grab me soon I'm ditching it.

I'm also somewhere in the middle (I have no idea how far in I am, really, because my waterproof mp3 player has no display) of Airborn by Matt Cruse, which is reminding me more of Steampunk Tom Sawyer than anything else. I'm enjoying it, though some of the events (the volcano that happens to start erupting as they go by!) make me roll my eyes.

What I'm reading next:

I have a couple of things people have mentioned nominating for Yuletide on my phone to check out. Also, I may give in and read the last of the existing Expanse books. (But then there won't be any more! Not for a while!)

What I just finished watching:

Finally saw Ex Machina, which I mostly liked but really, I wanted more scenery porn. Apparently it was filmed in Norway. Beautiful! Oh, yeah, AI robot plot and mad scientist type, whatever.

We are thinking of starting Westworld, speaking of AI robots.

What I'm playing now:

Still Dragon Age: Origins, which continues to be excellent entertainment. I have a golem companion now, who is a hilariously sarcastic pigeon-hating pile of rocks that is good at bashing enemies. Also I can't manage to make my character be anything other than basically lawful good. I am terrible at choosing objectively awful responses to things, even when they look like they might have interesting results!

What I'm playing next:

I bought the second Witcher game for $3 from a Humble Bundle promotion, so I will give that a try next.

You come home from Bali, you need to start planning for Paris - ILL conference for work and then staying a long weekend after to meet up with a fandom friend from the US. That's going to be a nice trip.

Also, remind me that I need to make a planning post for tuesday? Stegelmann is nearly upon us.

What I've recently finished reading

The Role-Playing Society: Essays on the Cultural Influence of RPGs
Could have been better. I found the chapter on the Satanic panic quite interesting. On the other hand, half of the articles were about rpgs in educational contexts, which felt - they had an entire section dedicated to articles like that, and then more articles in other sections? It was too much.

Mike Mignola: Hellboy in Hell: The Death Card
Didn't feel like much happened here, really.

Dagbogen 2. september - en dag i Danmark
I got this because the National Museum was doing this project again - basically, encouraging everybody to writing diaries on a specific day and sending them in. This book is a selection of these perfectly ordinary, boring day diaries from 25 years ago. Sometimes they feel dated in dramatically ironic ways - references to Brixtofte, for instance, or when somebody wants to brag about their new computer, a Commodore 64. At other times - I think there was one of anything lgbt - a woman referring to a colleague, who was possibly lesbian. It was a very broad spectrum of people 's diaries published - in the foreword, the museum people write that they'd barely gotten through the first 100.000 diaries - but at the same time, I found so very little in the way of people like me, and I don't know if that's just because they didn't write in, if they were not selected for the book, or if the museum people had simply not gotten to those piles yet when the book was made.

Mind you, this all reminds me that I need to write down the second half of my own diary from the 6th of september before things fade too much and send it in. Guess that's one way to go down in history.

Steve Orlando: Midnighter: Hard
Not as good as Out, since most of this devolves into fairly basic fights against the Suicide Squad (which does not fully comprehend what they are dealing with), though it's nice to see Midnighter reunited with Apollo. Will need to read the Apollo & Midnighter comic soon.

Kurt Busiek: Astro City: Honor Guard
Not the strongest Astro City collection, but still quite good.

Alex Beecroft: Blue Eyed Stranger
This is nice novel. Two nice young men, each with their own issues, meet at the Medieval Markets they both attend, and most of the drama revolves around their personal issues. I enjoyed it.

What I'm reading now

Veil of Night, Grant Morrison's Multiversity comic - so far my favourite is the utopia is boring alternate, where Superman fixed everything and the next generation of heroes and villains are mostly just bored, and Paris from the Vide Verden series.

What I'm reading next

Either Fenrisfærden by Susanne Clod Pedersen or maybe one of those books lurking on my un-read shelf. Decisions, decisions.

Total number of books and comics read this year: 147

Apparently, Guillermo del Toro has just won the Golden Lion in Venice for his new movie "The Shape of Water" which is all about Abe Sapien getting a girlfriend.

*wanders over on imdb and kino.dk to see when I can get to see this movie I've already been looking forward to since I saw the first trailer*

22nd of February 2018???!!!

And it's not like the Danish media are posting about it on all the big news sites, either. Which is odd, considering - Golden Lion! I get that the big headlines today are all about Irma, but when I actively go looking - I can barely find anything and I went on Infomedia to search as well...

Nu hvor sommeren er forbi aldrig nåede frem og julestemningen så småt begynder at sprede sig med Yuletide nomineringer etc., så tænkte jeg, at det måske var på tide at kaste mig ud i min traditionelle, årligt tilbagevendende "er der nogen som vil med ind og se Crazy Christmas Cabaret?" kampagne.

Hvis dette har nogens interesse, har jeg lavet en doodle med datoerne på showet den sidste uge inden jul, i håbet om, at så mange som muligt kan finde en dato i København som fungerer for os alle sammen. Der er stadig pladser på forreste række de fleste af hverdagene og lillejuleaften.

Og doodlen finder I her: https://doodle.com/poll/v68iiddn727c4b72

LoT Rewrite Episode 5

[personal profile] oneiriad
So, I just wanted to share this fannish thing I've been a part of this summer.

See, I'm part of a group of Legends of Tomorrow fans, who found certain aspects of the second season - unsatisfying. So, we kinda somehow managed to organize after the season ended, and, well - spent most of the summer chatting and coordinating and writing - an alternate season 2 of Legends of Tomorrow.

Which we are currently posting, one fic "episode" a day for most of september, and then the real season three will start appearing in tv in early october, so we're just in time.

And today was my day. As in my episode. Which involves the time travelling superheroes ending up in Viking Age Jutland and having to save Sweyn Forkbeard from an untimely death at the hands of Jomsvikings with high-tech axes, and there's spell-singing völvas and stuff.

And look! Kickingshoes, who are these amazing fan artists in LoT fandom and a few others (when they are not off being amazing professional artists) have done a series of Major Arcana inspired fan arts for the rewrite, and look at the one for my episode!

And I know that most people reading this DW/LJ isn't in LoT fandom with me, but I just wanted to share this with you anyway, because I feel that this is kinda an amazing project and I'm a little bit proud to be a part of it.

More nominating tips
When a character could appear in many different versions across many fandoms, or has a generic name, we recommend that you put a fandom disambiguation tag after the name. For example:
-Bonnie Parker (Bonnie and Clyde (1967))
-Robin Hood (Prince of Thieves)
-Tulku (The Shadow 1994)
-Leonardo da Vinci (Da Vinci's Demons)
would all be helpful character names in their respective fandoms.


If you receive an error message that a character was rejected because it was nominated in another fandom, resubmit the character with disambiguation, as above.


If you submit a character that is new or rarely used on AO3, a suggestion from AO3 may appear in bold and in brackets (for example: Razzle (Nicholas "Razzle" Dingley)) next to your nomination once it’s submitted. This is okay, and does not mean that your nomination will be automatically changed. However, if you don't recognize the character in brackets, it is a good sign that you should edit your character nomination and disambiguate it with the fandom you nominated, i. e. as “Character (Fandom Name)”.


Some fandoms, especially short ones such as music videos, do not need character nominations. Others will not be approved without them: RPF and Anthropomorphic fandoms.


As there may be more than one character who has used a superhero name, please make sure it’s clear which character you mean - you may want to use their “wallet” name. For example: Please don't nominate Robin, but instead Dick Grayson or Damian Wayne.


Please double-check the spelling and format of your nominations, both before pressing Submit and after.


When do nominations close?
At 9am UTC on 16 September. This may be the previous day in your time zone. Here is a countdown.

You can edit your nominations until this time.


How many nominations do we get?
Three fandoms, and four characters in each fandom.



If you have questions about nominations, feel free to ask them on this post or at yuletideadmin@gmail.com. If you want to discuss your nominations with other fans, try the LiveJournal community, Dreamwidth community, IRC channel, or Discord server (invite link).

Please use this post (or its LiveJournal equivalent) to submit evidence to help us consider fandoms’ eligibility for Yuletide 2017.


It’s a good idea to comment on this post if:
  • The fandom you have nominated is closely related to another fandom, and especially, if the related fandom is ineligible for Yuletide.

  • The fandom you have nominated includes several types of media, and you are concerned that the ban on "All Media Types" or "& Related Fandoms" affects it.

  • The fandom you have nominated has too many stories to be eligible for Yuletide, but only because of crossposting between fanfiction.net and AO3, OR because a very small pool of authors has written most of the fics. You need to provide links that clearly show this.

  • The fandom you have nominated appears on either fanfiction.net or AO3 as part of a larger “umbrella” fandom, but you believe you can clearly show that the fics actually about your fandom are under the limit.

  • The fandom you have nominated is a fanwork.

  • The fandom you have nominated has a generic name that is extremely hard to google or can be confused with other fandoms, AND your fandom has no canonical fandom tag on AO3.

  • The fandom you have nominated is obscure and is not in English, and if we go looking for information about it, we won’t easily find any that is in English.


The following will not be considered as evidence that a fandom with a large number of stories is actually under the limit:
  • Crossovers

  • Use of original characters

  • Fic quality

  • Stories that have ambiguous endings but that are marked ‘complete’.

If your fandom has 1100 or more works across ff.net and ao3, including crossovers, that are in English, complete, and over 1,000 words long (see the bookmarklet tool for a quick way to check this), we will not consider any evidence for the fandom that would reduce its numbers.


If your fandom needs evidence, you must submit it before the end of the nominations period. Nominations will begin at approximately 9am UTC on September 8, and will end at 9am UTC on September 16 (Saturday).

Mods and tagmods will read all comments on this post. We will ask questions if we have them, but may not reply to every comment.

You can read this year's eligibility rules on LJ or DW. If you have a question about them, please ask it on those posts, or send it to yuletideadmin@gmail.com.
