Short version, I overslept. Due to the delay, vetting will run until 9pm EDT 19th June (What time is that for me?), and assignments will go out tomorrow night once vetting closes.

I've got four fandoms which were not published for children or teens, but are teen-adjacent which I've decided to allow.

Biting the Sun - Tanith Lee
The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood
Ready Player One - Ernest Cline
Wayward Children Series - Seanan McGuire

I'll be sending the character nominated as "Judge" in the Henry & Mudge series through as Mudge, barring any new information before I close noms. I'm slowly working my way through sending fandoms and characters from the uncategorized/unassociated bins right now, so please do not leave vetting comments on those. It takes a while for the archive to catch up to the changes I'm making.

Vetting notes can be left in the comments. The Tag Set can be found here

Unanswered Queries:

For the person who nominated the Henry & Mudge Series, I've got one character I'm holding off on approving - did you mean Judge or Mudge???

New Queries:

For the person who nominated The Worst Witch Series - Jill Murphy, you nominated Maud Spellbody who only appears under that name in the newest TV show. Did you mean to nominate Maud Moonshine?

I'm pushing noms closing back till tomorrow morning as I've got other tasks I need to finish tonight. You've got till 18th June at 9am EDT (What time is that for me?).

For the person who nominated The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood, I can't find any evidence it was marketed to teens at any point. Being used in high school classes is not enough to make a book eligible for the exchange. I'll hold off on rejecting it till the end of the nomination process, but I'd need to see some proof that it was marketed to teens (not necessarily in the US or in English) before it will be accepted.

New Query:

For the person(s) nominating Wayside School - Louis Sachar, both Mark Miller and Benjamin Nushmutt were nommed. I don't mind sending them both through, I just want confirmation that they were intended to be nommed separately.

I had someone point out that I'd accidentally left the tagset invisible. I did not mean to do that and currently nominated fandoms are now visible here.

We're about at the halfway point for noms now. You've got till 17th June at 9pm EDT (What time is that for me?).

For the person who nominated POTTER Beatrix - Works, it looks like you specifically meant the Peter Rabbit books...is this correct? I'd rather not use Works tags unless it's unavoidable.

For the person who nominated The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood, I can't find any evidence it was marketed to teens at any point. Being used in high school classes is not enough to make a book eligible for the exchange. I'll hold off on rejecting it till the end of the nomination process, but I'd need to see some proof that it was marketed to teens (not necessarily in the US or in English) before it will be accepted.

For the person who nominated Ghostwriter, I am aware that there is a tie-in book series, but I need more time to research the details. Apologies for the delay.

ETA: I've had several fandoms come through with no characters, which have been approved. However, I encourage people to nominate characters for better matching.

First the two that have not been fixed:

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.

And two new ones

A nomination for The Squad by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. Josh Klein was nominated but there is no character named Josh in the books (thank you, google books). Did you perhaps mean Noah Klein (the main character's brother).

A nominations for Fairy Tales & Related Fandoms which is way too broad for this exchange. Please pick out a specific anthology or a specific shared universe if you want to have these characters in a story together. Nominating The Complete Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm, or any of the Colored Fairy Books by Andrew Lang, or even an anthology of Favorite Fairy Tales from Around the World (Jane Yolen did one, and I know there are others), but there are enough variants of all these stories that I'd prefer a more specific nomination. I'll look through the anthologies I have at work tomorrow to see if I can find one with all the characters listed.

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.
