We have been working on the tag set for 216 hours, and there are now 3196 approved fandoms in the tag set. We’re nearly there!

Please help us with the following issues:

17th Century CE RPF - We would like help to narrow this fandom down, as it is presently too broad. The characters nominated are:
  • Ben Jonson

  • Esme Stewart 1st Duke of Lennox

  • George Villiers 1st Duke of Buckingham

  • James VI and I

  • John Donne (17th Century CE RPF)

  • Robert Carr

  • Robert Carr 1st Earl of Somerset
-are these Robert Carrs the same? Esme Stewart 1st Duke of Lennox died before 1600; nominator, which person did you mean?

Chronicles of the Raven - James Barclay - Ry Darrick only seems to appear in the sequel trilogy; is that incorrect, or does this fandom label cover both trilogies? We’d also appreciate a little more information on the Unknown Warrior.

The Dark Tower - Stephen King - this is approved, and includes both 'The Man in Black' and 'Marten Broadcloak'. Nominators, would you prefer they are merged, or kept separate?

NaPolA | Before the Fall (2004) - Two characters, Albrecht Stein and Friedrich Weimer, are characters in the film; the other two, Florian Stetter and Martin Goeres, are actors. Nominator, could you please confirm whether you wanted to nominate the movie, or to nominate an RPF canon of the movie’s actors?

Never Too Wanted - The Composed Faucet Collection (Commercial) - We can’t figure out which character you’ve identified as the US Marshall - pointers, please? (Anyone?)

New York Yankees RPF - this has been approved, with characters Aaron Judge, Didi Gregorius, Gary Sánchez, and Greg Bird. However, Baseball RPF has also been approved, with characters Adam Lind, Anthony Rendon, Bryce Harper, Ian Kinsler, James McCann, Jayson Werth, José Iglesias, Michael A. Taylor, Miguel Cabrera, Sean Doolittle, Trea Turner, and Wilmer Difo. Yankees nominator, would you prefer your nomination was folded into Baseball RPF or that it was kept separate? (NB: this is possibly the last year ‘Baseball RPF’ is eligible under its current label.)

No Game No Life - Kamiya Yuu - we're a little confused by the character 『 』| Kuuhaku | Blank. Could the nominator please give their reasoning for nominating this character separately?

Smosh - the characters nominated are Keith Leak Jr., Noah Grossman, Olivia Sui, and Shayne Topp. Could the nominator please clarify if this is a nomination for RPF, or for fictionalized characters that share the names of the real people?

Star Wars: Marvel Comics - this nomination combines characters from multiple different series. The characters nominated are Captain Tolvan, Eneb Ray, Lando Calrissian, Queen Trios, and Terex. Could each nominator please choose one title for us to approve?

刀剣乱舞 | Touken Ranbu - Unfortunately, we made a mistake when we sent this through. Sorry. While we’re happy to approve this, we’d like some help: could each nominator please tell us which characters they nominated and under which label? We’d particularly like to hear from the Katsugeki!-specific nominator.

Zero | Project Zero | Fatal Frame Series - this seems to be a nomination for characters from two separate games, with Hinasaki Miu, Kozukata Yuuri, and Kurosawa Hisoka from Fatal Frame V, and Kurosawa Rei from Fatal Frame III. Could the nominator please either clarify, or pick just one game? (Fatal Frame IV is in the tag set separately.)


All Media Types fandoms
We need clarification from the person (or people) who nominated the following fandoms. Please specify a single version of the canon and provide a link to your nominations page so we can confirm the nomination. If these aren't answered, the fandoms will be rejected:
  • Kino no Tabi | Kino's Journey - All Media Types, characters: Kino (Kino no Tabi)

  • Kizoku Tantei, characters: unnamed main character (Kizoku Tantei)

  • A Room With a View - All Media Types, characters: Charlotte Bartlett, Eleanor Lavish



If you are commenting about your own nomination to say what you would like done with characters or fandoms, please link your nominations page! It is the page you get by clicking ‘My Nominations’ from the tag set.

If you notice any problems with your nominations - mis-spellings, etc - feel free to comment on this post.

Challenge information )


Fics written for the purpose of re-qualifying for Yuletide must be posted before signing up to Yuletide 2017 (ie, before October 9 and ideally before October 1). You have two weeks! They must also be over 1,000 words and written to a previous Yuletide prompt. The fandom in which they are written must still be small enough to qualify for Yuletide (in brief: there are fewer than 1,000 fics each (that are over 1,000 words, in English, and complete) when adding the total fics on AO3 and ff.net).

Mexico City Rocked by 7.1 Magnitude Earthquake, Weeks After Devastating Temblor:

Donate: http://ift.tt/2fj5VOD

Please take time this Sunday to donate to help our neighbors recover from the devastating earthquakes and hurricanes.  This charity has a 4 star rating and spends its money on the ground. And if you cannot spare any funds, please reshare.

This will be 1 of several organizations I will highlight today.

My purpose was to see fox sparrows and eventually I did, although The Nature Area on a Sunday has its drawbacks. I went late, 7:30, so that the gate would be open, but I should have gone earlier regardless. (I should always go earlier.:)) I walked north on Upper Packrat then out as far as the madrone and huge eucs just past the park boundary, and back on Lower Packrat. Bird of the day was my first of season fox sparrow, but I also had lots of warblers (four species in three or four loose flocks), a visible Swainson's thrush, and nothing else exciting. The list: )

There's still water flowing over the dam. Less than a month ago but more than a trickle.

Nominations Queries Post Four

We have been working on the tag set for 195 hours, and the number of individual fandom nominations has gone down from 5058 to 43. (Many of which 43 are mentioned below.) There are 3171 approved fandoms now in the tag set. We’re nearly there! Please note, though - the tag set won’t open the moment we hit zero. We’ll need a break to catch a breath & some of our own mistakes.


Please help us with the following issues:

Barcelona (album) - this is nominated only with characters Boy and Girl. Could the nominator please confirm what album they mean (the one by Freddie Mercury?) and what is meant by the characters? It seems like they might appear in just one song, The Golden Boy. Please clarify.

Battle: Los Angeles (2011) - By fandom name, this appears to be a nomination for the movie, but one character, Lee Imlay, appeas to be specific to the tie-in game. Could the nominator please confirm that all characters appear in the same canon, and confirm which canon they mean?

Carly Rae Jepsen (Musician) - This is nominated with the characters Alana Haim and Carly Rae Jepsen. We’re not really sure what the connection between the two is - could the nominator please clarify or suggest another fandom label?

CNN Pundits RPF - It’s not clear to us that The Magic Wall (anthropomorphic) belongs in an RPF nomination. Could the nominator please explain their reasoning?

Chronicles of the Raven - James Barclay - Ry Darrick only seems to appear in the sequel trilogy; is that incorrect, or does this fandom label cover both trilogies? We’d also appreciate a little more information on the Unknown Warrior.

Devil’s Cub - Georgette Heyer and These Old Shades - Georgette Heyer - these have been approved separately, with characters Dominic Alastair, Justin Alastair, Léonie de Saint-Vire, and Mary Challoner, and Hugh Davenant, Justin Alastair, Leonie, and Rupert Alastair, respectively. However, it’s been pointed out that they form a series. If (and only if) both nominators are willing, we will merge the nominations as the Alistair-Audley series. Nominators, how do you feel about that?

The Katering Show - We’re a bit confused by the nomination of The Thermomix as a character. Could the nominator please give their reasoning?

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017) - This fandom has already been approved, but we’d like to hear from anyone who nominated the tag The Mage | Guinevere. This is the canonical tag on AO3 (and Yuletide’s use of it is unlikely to change that; if you have strong opinions please refer them to Support). However, one person who nominated The Mage has argued that they are separate. Would the other nominator also be OK with changing The Mage | Guinevere to just The Mage? If so, we will change it; if not, we will leave it as The Mage | Guinevere.

NaPolA | Before the Fall (2004) - Two characters, Albrecht Stein and Friedrich Weimer, are characters in the film; the other two, Florian Stetter and Martin Goeres, are actors. Nominator, could you please confirm whether you wanted to nominate the movie, or to nominate an RPF canon of the movie’s actors?

Nemocnice na kraji města | The Hospital on the Outskirts of the City (TV) - This title seems to refer to several different versions & reboots of a show. The character Eliška Králová seems to only appear in the 2003 sequel show, Nemocnice na kraji města po dvaceti letech | Hospital at the End of the City Twenty Years On, while the other nominated character Ina Blažejová is in both the 1978 and 2003 shows. Could the nominator please clarify what canon is covered by the title they’ve nominated?

Never Too Wanted - The Composed Faucet Collection (Commercial) - We can’t figure out which character you’ve identified as the US Marshall - pointers, please?

No Game No Life - Kamiya Yuu - we're a little confused by the character 『 』| Kuuhaku | Blank. Could the nominator please give their reasoning for nominating this character separately?

The Scarlet Pimpernel - Takarazuka Revue - The nominated characters Chauvelin (Ryuu Masaki) and Chauvelin (Yuzuki Reon) appear to come from separate runs of this production, in 2008 and 2010. Nominator, could you please share your reasoning on nominating them together?

Smosh - the characters nominated are Keith Leak Jr., Noah Grossman, Olivia Sui, and Shayne Topp. Could the nominator please clarify if this is a nomination for RPF, or for fictionalized characters that share the names of the real people?

Southpaw Regional Wrestling - we can’t find confirmation that a “Swamp Monster” appeared in this canon. Could the nominator please clarify and confirm?

Star Wars Legends: X-wing Series - Aaron Allston & Michael Stackpole - We have approved this nomination. However, we have also approved a nomination for Star Wars Legends: X-wing Series - All Media Types, with characters Derek "Hobbie" Klivian (X-Wing), Plourr Ilo (X-Wing), Rial Pernon (X-Wing), and Wes Janson (X-Wing). Could the nominator of the Allston & Stackpole series please confirm if it is okay to combine their nomination with the All Media Types nomination?

Trial and Error (TV 2017) - We can't find the character Anne Cox. Could the nominator please confirm and give us pointers to when she appeared? (Did you mean Dan Cox?)

决对争锋 | Duì Jué Zhēn Fēng | Beloved Enemy - We can't tell if this refers to the audio drama, the web series, or both, and if both, we'd appreciate a further comment on why they should be grouped together, please. This was nominated with the characters Gu Qing Pei, Peng Fang, Wang Jin, and Yuan Yang.


All Media Types fandoms
We need clarification from the person (or people) who nominated the following fandoms. Please specify a single version of the canon and provide a link to your nominations page so we can confirm the nomination. If these aren't answered, the fandoms will be rejected:

I am thoroughly happy with my life and right now I attribute my contentment to spending the last four months reading fan fiction in The Professionals fandom. I am so happy to have found my way back and to be rereading all these (expensive) zines for the third or fourth time. This time I am separating them into keepers and those I can ship off to someone to keep/sell/give away. Normally my journal entries are TL:DR fodder but these days I cannot spare the time or have much to say...just want to get back to the next story. I do a lot of searches for information, there are so many stories I wish were online, I get so pissed off at WIP that are unfinished. I really really thing that WIP should never be posted in zines. I just read through my five Scotch Doubles zines and they had four bloody stories that never were finished because the promised 6th zines never materialized or the writer's ran out of steam, or couldn't find another publisher. In Sprite of Himelf - Bodie as a sprite. No Such Thing As A Merman - Bodie as a merman. Days of Future Past by Ty a Chief-Pros crossover and the Scotch Doubles story that ended with a real cliff hanger (possible death). If you are going to do a WIP that spans five zines then you should make sure each is a stand alone so that if you don`t continue at least the reader has some closure. Four unfinished stories is too much. Rant over
I also have Lily Fulford`s The Professionals Story List - A Reference Guide that lists all the stories and where they can be found up to 1998, what a wonderful thing it is and I wish someone had continued her work. Palely Loitering made a great stab at filling in the blanks but her last post to her great work was in 2003 I think...I could add so much information as I go on reading, if she was still working on it.
It is 30C, the sun is shining, sailboats on the water look lovely and I did go out and eat on patio at PIE so now....back to my stories.

This time put in Live Journal password...this is the problem with having your computer save all your passwords...sometimes when they asked to be changed I cannot read my own handwriting with the new password in the notebook. try again for last time.

Cross posting hasn`t been working so went to try and change password and now to see if this one works. Additional information, Brandon got new glasses but not boots. He has a cataract in right eye and it not happy with new bifocals...52 years old and first time getting glass and it is a heavy duty prescription...amazing he must have been driving blind for years. Air conditioner is on for only the fifth time this year....Ash is becoming really sensitive to the heat but at thirteen and a half you can expect changes. I am so far behind in all my journals...normally I can fill pages but there is no time and really nothing to say...I am not socializing really, no television shows, avoiding news like the plague...Trump makes me physically sick to my stomach and gives me anxiety attacks and world news is so awful that for my sanity and health I have to close it all off. My Live Journal account is so far out of date because every time I post here and hope the cross post happens and it doesn`t I am too lazy to go there and repeat myself. All these stories and most of the writers you cannot send feedback because none of their emails are functioning anymore. A lot of friends are switching over to gmail but I am still using my AOL. I wrote to Mary Van Deusen but I think my email addys for her were wrong and went to Barb Phillips of Recycled Media but the last time I used them and wrote to Barb they came back as if she had changed hers too.

I rarely buy fruit other than the apples I take hiking but today, the display of perfectly ripe farmers' market figs forced me to buy a basket. Oh, my gosh. Will I manage not to eat them all this afternoon? Wouldn't bet on it.

In order to maintain my streak and still have hope of getting to the farmers' market before the loose greens are gone I got down to the Berkeley Meadow about 7:30, returning about 9:30. Again the weather was glorious, clear, with little wind. Despite the kites not making an appearance it was a remarkable morning: more shore/water birds than last time and three warblers. A migration list: )

There were several mystery calls, none recordable.:(
