Nominations still going on
Nominations are open until April 15th. Nomination form.

You're able to nominate up to 7 fandoms and for each fandom, up to 6 characters. The fandoms must be medium sized fandoms (unless it's an RPF fandom or movie fandom which means it can also be a potential Yuletide fandom as well) and you can check eligibility rules here. Please nominate fandoms that you are intending to request or offer.

You must have an AO3 account to use the nomination form. If you need an invitation, please contact us at

You can see the nominations tag set here to see what has been approved.

Note: Fandoms will be the first things approved. Character approvals will be much slower. Approved fandoms and characters will be visible during nominations.

Updating megafandoms list + more
If you know of a fandom that should be considered a megafandom (over 20,000 fics) but isn't on the list, please reply in a comment below along with a link to an archive/comm/etc. This is so a) we have digital evidence of a fandom's "mega" status instead of relying solely on word of mouth, b) it gives fans who weren't aware of where to find those fics an opportunity to find a new treasure trove, c) your mods aren't aware of every part of fandom and they will miss things that may be obvious to someone else in their corner of the net, so help is appreciated.

The megafandom list can be found either on LJ or on DW.

This list will be updated until April 1st when we lock it for the duration of the upcoming round, and will open it again for updates once the round is over.

There's a fandoms promotion post (on LJ | on DW) where you can promote your fandom and find out what people are requesting/offering.

New changes have been posted on the admin comm.

Nominations begin April 5 to April 15. We hope to see you there!

Fandoms Promotion
Nominations are just around the corner, starting April 5th, and it takes time to review canons or to possibly take on new canons. If you'd like to promote your fandoms in order to entice fellow participants to offer/request, this is the place to do it.

Please keep discussions of each individual fandom in separate comment/comment threads with the subject of it as that fandom. Please also put as your first sentence a list of common potential triggers (in the canon and especially anything is in your comment).

Our guidelines for a medium sized fandom can be found through this link for RPF, movie, and other fandoms.

Kids/YA Book Fic Exchange title run-off poll
judy, cat
Run-off round for the top two titles and a few I liked from the comments. This second poll will last until Tuesday morning when I will make a decision and a Comm.

Children's/YA Book Fic Exchange prelimary poll
It's early days yet but I'm planning on running a kids'/YA book fic exchange this August and I've got a poll up on my Dreamwidth to gauge interest and hopefully choose a name.

The current plan involves nominations in mid-July, assignments by the beginning of August and reveal in early September. It will be open to all books or stories published for children or Young Adults (including republished adult titles and audio only books & stories), with no limits on original language or popularity.

Expect a pretty banner and comm links once this thing has a name.
