Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (TV)
Antoine Triplett's Mother
Leo Fitz's Mother
Momma Coulson
— have these characters been mentioned?

Rejected because they're mostly fanon.

Rafe -- also Rafe Valentine, which tag should be used? Approved as Rafe Valentine.

Babylon 5
Tessa Holloran -- AO3 suggests "Number One (Babylon 5)" Approved as Tessa Holloran.

Banshee (TV)
job -- AO3 suggests "Iyov | Job" Approved as Job (Banshee)

The Borgias
Sancia (Borgias) -- there's a Sancia Squillace on IMDB. Which name do we use? Approved as nominated.

Tyler the Firestarter -- the Charmed wiki gives us a firestarter named Tyler Michaels? Approved as Tyler Michaels.

Eurydice or The Devil Henpecked - Fielding
— we can't really find much under this name. We found a play simply named Eurydice on Google Books.
Approved as "Eurydice - Henry Fielding"

Gundam Wing
Quaterine Winner -- AO3 suggests Katherine Winner instead Approved as Quaterine Winner

Gundam Wing & Related Fandoms -- Approved as Gundam & Related Fandoms
Katherine Winner -- Approved as Quaterine Winner (G&RF)

The Hobbit - All Media Types
Hilda Bianca -- the LotR wiki has an article on Hilda Bianca, but the name used in the text is Hilda Blanca. Which do we use? Approved as Hilda Blanca.
Bard of Laketown’s Canonical Wife -- Unnamed character, do we know anything more than that she exists? Approved.
Glóin’s Wife -- See above Approved.
Thranduil’s Wife -- See above Rejected because of insufficient canon evidence.

Ueda Hiroyasu -- is that his name in Kobato? The Kobato wiki only supplies Hiroyasu, with the full name being given in Chobits. Is this the same person? Approved.

Locke & Key
Shub-Niggurath – We can’t find any evidence of a character with that name in Locke & Key, the only reference seems to be characters using it as their dying words Rejected.

Chouko (Loveless) -- Who is this character? Google turns up information on a Chouko Agatsuma in connection with Loveless, but said information is sparse and I can’t see whether the character actually appears in Loveless. Approved.

Kristen from Statistics
Lillian with the lip piercing
-- Rejected because they haven't appeared
Melinda May
Skye (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.)
— I am not sure we should allow these characters here. AO3 files the AoS series under the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but to me cinematic implies having been shown in the theatres. Since neither character has shown up in the movies (yet -- or have they?) and they are both non-rare characters in AoS, I don't think they qualify. What do you think?

We're giving Melinda and Skye the benefit of the doubt and hope it was the nominator's intention to have them interact with the movie characters. :)

Memory, Sorrow and Thorn - Tad Williams
Magewin -- Unable to find any information on the character
Simon -- Approved as Seoman Snowlock

Merlin (TV)
Ygraine -- AO3 suggests "Ygraine de Bois (Merlin)" Approved as Ygraine de Bois (Merlin)

My Little Pony (Cartoon 1984)
Mimic -- could only find sources for 1986 Approved.

Orphan Black (TV)
Marion Bowles – AO3 suggests Marian Bowles. Google is undecided on the issue. Which name is correct? Approved as Marian Bowles.

The Silmarillion and other histories of Middle-Earth
Edhellos -- AO3 suggests Eldalótë. Which tag do we use? Approved as Eldalótë.
Faniel -- Apparently only mentioned in older versions, not included in the published version. Nothing known about her but her name Approved

Welcome to Nightvale
You – Wondering if this is veering too far into OC land, if this is indeed meant to be the “You” Cecil always addresses, i.e. the listener? Approved

Westmark - Lloyd Alexander
Cabbarus (Westmark) -- Google suggests Cabarrus
Rina -- Cannot find any information on the character existing
Sparrow -- See Rina
Stock -- See Rina
Weasel -- See Rina

Young Justice
Kaldur’Ahm (YJ) -- Tagged in AO3 as Aqualad Approved

Trying to be proactive.

wildandfreehearts: An Alan/Ian icon I made (I'm Obnoxious/Sexy)
From: [personal profile] wildandfreehearts
I noticed that one of my noms - Richard Trager, in the Outlast fandom - didn't have an actual tag on AO3. There is a link for fics which he appears in on AO3 here and his character bio can be found on Outlast wiki here.

Banshee (TV)
job -- AO3 suggests "Iyov | Job"

that suggestions is for the biblical Job, the character tag here should be 'Job (Banshee)'.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (TV)

The listed characters are fanon -- they did not appear on the show.

Kristen from Statistics
Lillian with the lip piercing

Both canonically exist, but were only mentioned by other characters and have never showed up on screen. (In one of the movies, there was a running joke of one character trying to set another person up, and those two women were among the options mentioned.)

ruuger: Londo from Babylon 5 and the text: "And now for something completely different - a Centauri with seven tentacles" (B5: Something completely different)
From: [personal profile] ruuger
Teresa Holloran was introduced as just 'Number One' and didn't get a name until the final season, so the AO3 tag is the correct one.

Quaterine Winner
As far as I know this is the correct form. If you click on http://archiveofourown.org/tags/Katherine%20Winner/works you can see that the one use of the tag is actually as Quaterine Winner also. AO3 decided to edit it for whatever reason. "Katherine" Winner is a either a poor translation or refers to one of the many fanonly named sisters.

Ueda Hiroyasu
It could be only Hiroyasu! I've read both Kobato and Chobits and the full name just flowed when I was filling out nominations. I don't have a problem with just Hiroyasu.

Chouko (Loveless) -- Who is this character?

Chouko dies before the series begins, but I've always wanted a fic about her and she is indeed a canonical character in Loveless. I don't have a quick way of finding the exact pages, but Ritsu and Soubi discuss her at her graveside, we see her body, and and it's noted at least once that she rejected Ritsu and left the school he leads and he had, um, issues over it.

Agatsuma is the surname of her son. Her surname is uncertain.

Hey, I just wanted to let you guys know that Bowtie is actually not a 1984 G1 pony - that pony is from G3 in 2005. Bow Tie, who is also listed, is G1 pony though. Maybe whoever made that nom actually meant to ask for that pony?

Marvel 616 Nomination

I submitted these guys for NPT where they came up as too rare to qualify. Since tagging them with their team name wasn't a tag on AO3 I tagged them with Marvel 616 this time round. This is what one of the mods had to say:

"X Men New Mutants - This fandom tag looks like it's non-canonical on AO3. I looked under X and did not find the tag. I looked under N and found New Mutants at 71 works. I checked FFN and did not see this fandom under New Mutants or X Men New Mutants. Is there another place I can find eligibility numbers or somewhere on either AO3 or FFN that I missed?"


The Shado I'm referring to in my Arrow tagset seems to have defaulted to the DC tag in the archive. She has 49 stories in Arrow section.

There is a very specific You in WNTV: in one episode, Cecil was referring to a single person by You and describing their life throughout the programme. So if you specify the nom as 'You (Welcome to Night Vale)' it should be clear it's about the You from the 'Story About You' episode, and not the reader (there's even an appropriate canonical already in the Archive).
