Apologies for the delay, but I was ill yesterday.

Nominations for The Exchange at Fic Corner are open on AO3. You can nominate up to four fandoms and up to five characters. Nominations will close on June 17th at approximately 9pm EDT. What time is that for me? Note that your mod is not very good at keeping track of time in the evenings and this does not happen automatically but it's safe to say that it will probably close before 1am EDT the next morning.

To make this easier on your mod, remember that book titles are canonized in AO3 as Title - Author or in the case of multiple authors, Title - Various Authors. If you're nominating a book or book series that is also a tv show/cartoon/board game/movie/podcast/etc., I WILL assume you mean the book version, but there will be much tearing of hair in the process, so the more specific you can be, the happier I will be. If there may be confusion, feel free to elaborate in the comments of this post.

The Eligibility guidelines from the FAQ. )

Feel free to use the comments to plan nominations, one book/series per thread. Please put title - author in the subject field for ease in coordinating.

Get ye to the omnominator. (Yes I've been watching the Phineas & Ferb marathon, why do you ask?)

Queries:
In Basil of Baker Street, I'm having trouble finding Mouse Mycroft. Does he actually appear in the series?

Notes:
Grandmary under the Tillerman cycle has been accepted as Abigail Tillerman.
The Tom Swift nomination has been accepted as Tom Swift IV (which is the accepted designation among Tom Swift fans for the series with Tom, Rick & Sandra).

Nominations will close in approximately 24 hours from the time stamp on this post. Nominate on AO3.

Yes, I know there are a few noms still outstanding. It's been a rough week and I haven't had a chance to do the research yet. Unless I've already mentioned it, all of the outstanding fandoms are eligible, I just need to check character names and I should have time to do that tomorrow.

The Silo Saga - Hugh Howey - I see no evidence that this was ever published for the children's or young adult market. Unless evidence otherwise is posted in the comments on LJ or DW before the end of nominations, this will be rejected.

The Tillerman Cycle - Cynthia Voigt - Is Grandmary correct? Gram is Abigail Tillerman. Admittedly, it's been a while since I read them, but I don't remember a character by that name, and google searches are only bringing up the Samantha books from American Girl.

There's one other outstanding nom atm, but that's just me forgetting to check name spellings at work today. It will be accepted tomorrow.

First a note: The Mortal Instruments (Movies) RPF has been accepted as The Mortal Instruments series - Cassandra Clare. While movie rpf is not allowed, the character noms were for the books rather than for actors, so I assumed it was a slip of the mouse.

That being said, I also have a nom for 101 Dalmatians (1961), which is also ineligible. However, the book is eligible, so I will hold off rejecting it until it's changed or I hear from the nominator.

The final tagset is here. Take a look and check for errors/duplicate characters, etc. etc. Any fixes should be noted in the comments.

We ended up with 225 fandoms this year, down from last year, but I suspect that's because we started much earlier. *crosses fingers*

You've got a week to peruse the tagset, catch errors and formulate your requests. Sign-ups will start Sunday, 15th June when I wake up.

Probably closer to an hour, but somewhere in that range.

Still waiting for original nominators to get back to me on Black Canary and Fairy Tales & Related Fandoms, plus if the nominator of Brother Cadfael would like to change their nom...I can't find any evidence that it was ever marketed to teens. All three of these will be rejected if they haven't been changed before I close noms.

Nominations will close in a little over 12 hours at 10pm EDT. Don't forget to nominate.

I've still got two pending issues, one old, one new.

Fairy Tales & Related Fandoms - if this hasn't been changed or removed before the end of noms, it will be rejected. It's just too broad a category for this exchange.

Justice League Adventures | Unlimited (Comics) - I had both Dinah Lance and Black Canary nominated. I'm not sure if this was a mistake or if the latter was meant to be Dinah Drake, but I can't find evidence that Dinah Drake was in the comics. If the original nominator meant to nom both of them, please clarify in the comments (I don't need scans, just an issue number to confirm). If not, please change Black Canary to another character.

Just a reminder that nominations are open until June 7th at approximately 10pm EDT What time is that where I am?

We've got three pending nomination queries on Dreamwidth or on Livejournal and I'd much rather have them fixed than have to reject them.

A nomination for An Island Like You duology by Judith Ortiz Cofer. An Island Like You is a book of short stories and I can't find evidence of a sequel on the author's homepage, but perhaps I'm just missing it. The nomination is otherwise fine, I just want to confirm the duology part.

A nomination for The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame with characters of Frog and Toad (Frog and Toad). There's a copy of this book on google books so I was able to do a full text search and I cannot find a Frog character. Can you please confirm that this is the title/character combination you intended? Frog and Toad is by Arnold Lobel, if that's what you intended.

A nomination for NIX Garth - Works. Judging by the characters chosen, this should be a nomination for the Old Kingdom series (aka the Sabriel series, but Old Kingdom - Garth Nix is the AO3 canonical). Again, the nomination is otherwise fine, but please change to the appropriate fandom tag.

I will probably not accept any nominations tonight so there is still time to make changes. However, I'm already seeing some potential issues.

1. Character nominations are good things. Nominating a fandom but not characters might get you matched with someone who loves the characters you hate and vice versa.

2. Cartoons are not allowed. Please make sure that if you're nominating a cartoon fandom that is/was also a comic that the two were indeed connected/that the comic was intended for children/teens. I've got three passes (Justice League & Justice League Unlimited, Young Justice, Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes) and one fail (Avengers Assemble - the comic was in main continuity not cartoon continuity) waiting on the queue at the moment. If you nominated the latter you have 24 hours to change it from the date stamp on this post the LJ post which has a date stamp of 11 minutes later before I reject it.

Vetting and bonus character additions will continue until tonight in the appropriate post.

I overslept, so you've got a half hour to get those last minute noms in.

Vetting and bonus characters will continue until 9pm(ish) tonight. Sign-ups will open tonight or tomorrow morning depending on how sleepy I am.

Due to my foul-up and the fact that I'm suddenly getting a stream of new nominations (were you all at comiccon?), I've decided to extend nominations another twelve hours.

Nominations will close 22nd July at 10am EDT. Vetting and bonus characters will close 11 hours later at 9pm EDT (10pm is way too close to bedtime for me to be thinking about such things, which is what caused the issue in the first place).

Off to edit the vetting post with this news.

It's been pointed out that I never changed the time noms would be closed on the original post. As this was my fault, I've reopened noms at least until 10pm EDT on 21st July and possibly later (depending on when I get around to closing them).

Vetting and character additions will continue as stated in the previous post.
