Nominations are now officially closed. A big thank you to everyone who has taken their time to nominate a character or several. We hope there are enough for you to request and offer.

Signups will open on August 1.

Until then, you can check the Ineligible Characters list or the Clarifications post in case you are wondering why your nominations has been rejected or is still unreviewed.

Do be aware that we might reject the remaining characters, if we are not sure who they are.


Also, another question regarding signups. Do you want signups to be transparent or not, i.e. do you want to see what others prompt or do you want to be surprised? Should we make a poll about that?

This is your friendly mod team speaking. Just to let you know we're now making our final preparations to Fly You To The Moon. that

Nominations will be closing tomorrow July 30 at 23:59 GMT. Tell your friends!

If you experience any ongoing questions concerning the state of your nomination, do not be shy about ringing that service bell. Or refer to the Flight Manual Clarifications post. Any characters we are unclear about after nominations have closed might be rejected. (That goes only for characters without canonical tags.)

Thank you!

To the person who nominated

  • Julian in Continuum, did you mean "Julian Randol"?

  • The Prince of Atlantis, could you give us some kind of proof for the character "Joris Orlov"?

  • "Dark Precure" in the Pretty Cure Series, did you mean "Dark Cure"?

  • Historical RPF

    • for Queen Nzingha a Mbande Wikipedia offers various names: Nzinga of Ndongo and Matamba, Queen Njinga Mbande and Ana de Sousa Nzingha Mbande. Could you give us an account of which name is the most common?

    • for Matilda of Canossa, Wikipedia redirects me to Matilda of Tuscany. Which is the more common name?

    • also, AO3 doesn't let us review the characters with diacritics in their names. We'll be adding them by hand, so don't worry if they aren't approved on your nomination list.

  • Battlestar Galactica (1978)

    • by "Dylan", did you mean "Dillon"?

    • by "Jamie", did you mean "Jamie Hamilton" or the Viper pilot who was killed in Lost Planets of the Gods?

  • "Vanguard" in Demon Knights, is there a character with that name? All I could find was a horse?

  • Loveless, could you give us some proof for the "Chouko" character?

  • "Martina Vanbasten" in WILD ARMs, is that Martina Vanbasten, Martina Van Basten or even Martina van Basten?

A heads-up about approved fandoms: they need at least two approved characters. Otherwise they will have to be deleted before signups start. The fandoms in question are:

Alice (2009) (1)
Amnesia: The Dark Descent (1)
Black Jewels - Anne Bishop (1)
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (1)
The Transformers (Cartoon Generation One) (1)
Vexx (video game) (1)


Also, we won't look into the following fandoms, unless there are 2 character nominations:
Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman (character: Billy Church Jr)

Thanks for all your nominations so far!

Here'll be a list of characters we can't approve just now. So unless you're willing to slog through 100 recent fics (or until July 1st, 2012, whichever comes first) and tell us your findings (that is, if the fics actually center around the character or just have them occur as background character), we'll have to reject them.

Eligible is any character of any fandom with less than 250 complete English-language fics over 1,000 words or less than 5% of the overall number of complete English-language fics over 1,000 words for the fandom. Use this search for AO3.
