Some preliminary questions:
  • Star Wars: Currently there are nominations for the Prequel Trilogy, Rogue One, and All Media Types. I'm opening this up to the floor: how do you all want this to be approved?
  • Doctor Strange/Dumbledore nominator - which Doctor Strange?
  • Harleen Quinzel & Wade Wilson - which Harleen Quinzel and which Wade Wilson?
  • Harleen Quinzel/Wade Wilson - which Harleen Quinzel and which Wade Wilson?
  • James "Bucky" Barnes/Dean Winchester - which Bucky?
  • Kaylee Frye/Montgomery "Scotty" Scott - which Scotty?
  • Loki (Marvel) & Mad Hatter|Jefferson - which Marvelverse Loki do you mean, and where is Mad Hatter from?
  • Parker (Leverage) & Deadpool - which Deadpool do you mean?
  • Red Riding Hood | Ruby/Natasha Romanov - which Natasha?
  • Viktor Krum & Victor Nikiforov - do you want book Viktor or movie Viktor?
  • Clint Barton & Deadpool - Can you confirm that Deadpool has appeared in the MCU?
  • Peter Parker/Wade Wilson - Can you confirm that Deadpool has appeared in the MCU?
  • Rocket Raccoon & Cosmo - Can you confirm that Cosmo has appeared in the MCU?
  • Final Fantasy XV nominator(s): please provide the full names for your characters - I cannot wiki to correct your nominations to reflect their full names because I have yet to play the game, and I don't want to be spoiled by accident!
If any tags have wandered, please let me know!

None of these are mine, but... Deadpool is not MCU, because he's owned by Fox, sadly - however Cosmo did make an appearance at the end of the GoTG movie.

Hope that was helpful! :)

Star Wars: Rogue One may need to stay its own category; some people won't see it by writing time? (I hope they do, but I know I didn't see TFA until 6 weeks after release)

The other argument for keeping the eras of Star Wars separated out is there are writers who ONLY write for Prequels, Original Trilogy, Legends, etc, with no overlap.

But that can be gotten around because of characters.

Just my two cents?

Not my nom, but Mad Hatter|Jefferson is a character from Once Upon a Time. As this pairing requested last year, too, I'm pretty sure it's MCU Loki.

Cosmo appeared in two scenes in Guardians of the Galaxy. He was shown in the Collector's collection and then again in the post-credits scene.

Deadpool isn't MCU. His movie is in the same universe as the X-Men movies.

Star Wars: Currently there are nominations for the Prequel Trilogy, Rogue One, and All Media Types. I'm opening this up to the floor: how do you all want this to be approved?

I think Prequel Trilogy, Original Trilogy, Rogue One, etc. are good ways to go. A lot of people only write for certain movies or certain media. Besides, it's a huge franchise. A person who knows the Prequel Trilogy very well may not be as familiar with, say, the 2008-2014 Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series or with the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic video game series and expansions.

I agree with this. There are novels that were supposed to be canon too. It's all too much to lump into "All media types", especially since canon actually conflicts between some of those.

I'm just now watching Clone Wars for the first time and liking it, and have otherwise enjoyed the movies but not really in a fannish way, so this sounds good.

I'd say just do star wars - all media types. i don't think it is really necessary to split them up. for example, i want to request a kannan/hera fic from star wars rebels. someone who is offering fanfic in star wars all media types isn't going to ask for that pairing unless they have seen the show rebels. honestly, i am not sure who shows up in rogue one. but overall i don't think it is a problem. plus there's room for people to do crossover pairings.

deadpool has not appeared in mcu and can't due to rights the different film companies have. spiderman and deadpool have met in other formats like comics (they have their own now, that is literally called spider-man/deadpool) and in cartoon shows (i think deadpool has showed up in the most recent spiderman one). this kind of also applies to the clint & deadpool request. like i said deadpool isn't part of mcu, but in other media these two have met.

mad hatter|jefferson is a character from the abc tv show once upon a time. he is actually played by sebastian stan, who also plays bucky barnes in mcu.

hope that helped??

I'd also suggest doing Star Wars - All Media. People may want to cross characters from the different movies/trilogies?

And, selfishly for nominating, all Star Wars pairs can be listed under one fandom vs having to use multiple fandom slots for different Star wars movies.

Maybe keep movieverse, bookverse and other medias separate? I'm not familiar with anything Star Wars except for the movies, so I would prefer to be not matched to people who's hoping to create/get fanwork based on story arcs I haven't read/played/watched.

Minerva McGonagall/Septima Vector is a Harry Potter (bookverse) ship, and it's showing up correctly there, but it's labeled as MCU for some reason.

(Not mine, just noticed it!)

I would be fine with having all of Star Wars under AMT. (I nominated Rogue One and OT.) If it gets moved, can I renominate under AMT and use my Rogue One slot for a different fandom?

Looking at the Star Wars stuff, it might work to have it all under AMT, but disambiguate relationships by canon you want to write them in (e.g. "Han/Leia (Original Trilogy)", "Han/Leia (The Force Awakens)"). Something similar happened with Transformers last year, where you'd have "Optimus Prime/Megatron (IDW)" and "Optimus Prime/Megatron (Unicron Trilogy)" both in the tagset. That would work for both the people who want to get it all in AMT so they can spend only one fandom slot and the people who only want to write in one canon.

(If I'm completely off-base here, feel free to disregard this whole thing, of course.)

Some Fullmetal Alchemist (Anime 2003) ships have wandered to the Unassociated section: Alphonse Elric/Edward Elric (Anime 2003), Edward Elric/Roy Mustang (Anime 2003), Izumi Curtis & Alphonse Elric & Edward Elric (Anime 2003), Paninya/Winry Rockbell (Anime 2003)

Oh, and there's one relationship duplicated: "Lust/Sloth (2003 anime)" and "Lust/Sloth (Anime 2003)"

For Star Wars, I'll really prefer not to have it all under AMT, because it's such a sprawling universe and people can't be expected to know everything, and there are enough overlapping characters that this might be a problem.

For example - I can write Ahsoka&Anakin if it's Clone Wars specific, but I've never seen Rebels so I won't be able to write their interaction there.

Same for ships like Anakin/Obi-Wan or Obi-Wan/Maul - people are going to have different prompts and knowledge based on whether they are movies only or if they watched The Clone Wars as well.

At the very least, I think the movie-verse should be kept separate from the books (EU or legends) and the individual animated series.
