Nominations are now open.


You get four fandom slots, eight “character” slots, and four canon helpers.




This should be rather self-explanatory.  Any fandom is eligible.  This includes RPF, original works, and crossovers.  Fandoms based on fan based works will be allowed in on a case by case basis.  For this section you should try and go for the more umbrella level of the fandom such as MCU, DCAU, or Dangan Ronpa – All Media Types.  Fandoms will be further subdivided using Canon Helpers, which is covered in a later section of this guide.



You may nominate any female character or group of female characters under the character field.  If a character’s status as female is uncertain then comment.  I will normally accept it if you make a case where I can reasonably see why you interpret this character as female.  I will also accept non-specific original female characters.  So original mad scientist is fine, Dr. Mean your OC is not.  If a character is confirmed to exist but doesn’t have a canonical gender, for example a wizard that is mentioned but never showed up, they can be nominated.


You may also nominate groups.  This should be in the form of Group: Alice & Sally.  Groups do not imply a specific relationship.  They just mean that the person creating for that tag has to include all the characters.  You may add as many characters as you want to the tag.  All characters in the group must be eligible for that fandom on their own.  Groups must be a clearly defined list of characters.  Don’t nominate Group: Female Avengers, instead nominate Group: Natasha Romanoff & Wanda Maximoff.  Groups should only be nominated in character slots.  Do not put them in relationships.


RPF nominations should not include anybody under the age of 18.  I will not accept non-famous family and friends.  Any RPF nominations can be removed at the request of that individual.  I reserve the rights to reject any RPF on reasons of bad taste. 


Canon Helpers

Canon helpers should be nominated under the relationship field.  The format is CH: Guardians of the Galaxy, CH: Madoka Magica anime series, or CH: Final Fantasy X.  Canon helpers will be used to make sure that you only match on parts of a fandom that you are familiar with.  These will be used for things such as adaptations versus original or  what part of a large fandom do you want.  In order for someone to match to you both of you must be offering and requesting at least one canon helper in common in addition to the normal fandom, character, and medium requirements.  Only canon helpers go in relationships, nothing else.


The advantages of this system is that fewer groups will have to go under crossovers.  It allows both the people that want their fandoms grouped together and the ones that want them to be split apart to be accommodated.  So if you are say only interested in the Agents of SHIELD part of the MCU then you’d select MCU as your fandom, the relevant characters/groups, and then CH: Agents of SHIELD.  Only somebody interested in writing/arting that part of the MCU would be matched to you.  While someone else that wants everybody and everything could also be accommodated. 


If I choose to fold your fandom under an umbrella fandom I will add the canon helper myself.  If you require more canon helpers than what I’ve allowed then comment and I will manually add them in.






If you feel your fandom needs to be split up further than what canon helpers would allow then contact me and explain why.

Yes, please! There are so many possible characters if everything is kept together that nominations/requests could be quite restrictive.

Silm and other histories is a good category since it is fairly separate from Hobbit and LotR. I could see CHs for Children of Húrin and the Akallabêth, but those might not even strictly be necessary, since CoH can be subsumed in "other histories" and is contained in the Silm in a less detailed version, and the Akallabêth (the part of the story dealing with Númenor and its fall) is self-contained by definition.

For LotR and the Hobbit, there should definitely be options to separate out books and movies, since those are the big dividing lines, so CH: LotR (book), LotR (movies) (or CH: LotR Jackson Movies if anyone wants to make sure they end up with Bakshi movie fic, but I doubt that's going to be a problem), CH: Hobbit (book) and CH: Hobbit (movies) would be good to have.

I would like to nominate a character from Born of Hope (2009) - the fan film prequel to LOTR that was done amazingly well (71 min, high production values). Now, some characters in that film are unique to the film alone and would not appear in LOTR at all, but some (such as Gilraen) would be shared. Should I nominate this as a separate fandom from LOTR? I could go either way when it comes to nominating/requesting groups (nominating/requesting only one character in the film, or nominating/requesting them in a group with other characters that are in LOTR only). It's not an *official* prequel but the story is almost completely canonical with the book (two minor details only) and would fit perfectly with the films. However, there are possibly fans of LOTR who may not even be aware that the film exists...

Just checking - is Star Wars being lumped wholesale into AMT, or are we splitting between "canon"/"legends"/(video games), or some other OT/PT/ST/TCW/Comics configuration?

Do we need to nominate canon helpers for canons where there is only one version of the canon? (For instance, a book series with no film/TV adaptations, an original TV show...) If so, how do we format it? Just CH: fandom name? I just want to make sure I'm doing this right before I click submit...

From: [personal profile] shopfront
Umbrella fandom? I've nominated assuming yes given how many kinds of Trek there are, but it won't let me include Jadzia Dax or Tora Ziyal as they've already been nominated (unapproved as far as I can see) by someone else under Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as a non-umbrella fandom.

If you don't decide to umbrella Trek, just let me know and I can edit my nominations accordingly so you don't need to tweak them.

Can we nominate 'canon character & original character' groups under non-original canons?

Ovipository tentacle creatures or monsters count as female characters?

I think either CH: Original or CH: Original Work under Original Work fandom should be deleted. This comment sounds funny.

Group: Agatha Heterodyne & Lucrezia Mongfish, CH: Agatha H books, and CH: Girl Genius (comics) all belong under Girl Genius in the comics section. The Agatha H books are a canonical tie-in that slightly retcon some of the beginning and add more details to the worldbuilding. The Girl Genius comics are the original canon and currently a webcomic.

Will it be possible to repeat fandoms when requesting or offering? (I'm thinking if someone wants to request/offer some characters with canon helper 1 and other characters with canon helper 2.)

I was worried about this as well, like I mentioned on my example under the Star Trek thread (if I want request/offer both AOS and TOS, but I want only TOS!Uhura, it's going to be a problem).

Transformers has the odd position of having a lot of characters who share names across continuities. I wouldn't particularly mind a mix-and-match approach - request canon helper Animated, canon helper IDW, and character Arcee, and my writer can pick which version of her they want to write - but it seems like it could be confusing, and other people in the fandom or the mod may want a full split or character labeling (so I'd nominate "Arcee (TFA)" or "Arcee (IDW)" depending on which one I wanted). Advice?

It occurs to me that I goofed when I nominated one of the crossover tags - I didn't make it clear which fandom the character was from. You can see here under Crossover Fandoms that I nominated "Group: Jane Rizzoli (R&I) & Lindsay Boxer (WMC TV)". It should've been "Group: Jane Rizzoli (R&I TV) & Lindsay Boxer (WMC TV)", since R&I is *also* a series of books - with VERY different canon events, different characterization, etc. (I don't know much about the books so I wouldn't want to match on someone who thought I was requesting fic about book!Jane, for instance, and it didn't appear that canon helpers would be practical for crossovers so the fandoms did need to be clearly specified for each character.) I don't know if that's fixable, but I thought I should ask.
