Folks, the time has come!

Innumerable Stars is OPEN.

We've got 37 glorious fanworks ready for your enjoyment!

Go forth, comment on your own gifts and on anything you enjoyed. I personally plan to comment on everything posted - why not join me in celebrating the gorgeous things we've all created?

You can also edit your stories to update them to today's date. Don't miss out on potential feedback! Go to 'Edit' then 'Set a different publication date' and change it to 16 October 2016.

Thanks so much to all our participants, and especially to pinch-hitters sassynails and kimaracretak!

Pinch hits!

Post-deadline, I have had to default two participants who did not post their story or art, or get in touch with me about an extension.

So there are two pinch hits up for grabs! You may claim them by posting a comment below (it will be screened to avoid revealing your identity), and I'll assign the pinch hit to you.

Even if you are not assigned a pinch hit, please feel free to write treats for anyone in the exchange and especially these two.

First pinch hit is for independence1776, who would like fic about The Lord of the Rings or The Silmarillion.

Second pinch hit is for amyfortuna, who would like fic or art about The Silmarillion, The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Smith of Wootton Major, or Farmer Giles of Ham.

Check out their letters and see if you want to claim one! Even if you aren't participating in this exchange, you are very welcome to take on a pinch hit.

Pinch hits are due on Saturday, 15 October, at 8pm UTC.


ETA: Both pinch hits have now been assigned - many thanks to the pinch hitters!

Assignments due soon!

Thanks to those who have posted already: you're on the ball!

Everyone else, this is your one week warning for Innumerable Stars. Stories/art are due on October 9th at 4pm GMT.

The minimum is 500 words / a nice sketch on unlined paper, and I will check for placeholders, but you may continue editing your stories for two weeks, until they are revealed.

Once you've posted your assignment, why not look through the requests and see if you'd like to write some treats? There are no minimum requirements for treats.

If you aren’t participating in the exchange but see a request you like, you are also very welcome to write treats!

Good luck and happy writing/drawing!

Nominations Are Open!

Time to go forth and nominate your under-appreciated faves! The tag set awaits you!

Please read the following instructions/FAQs to ensure that your nominations go through quickly. I will be approving them as fast as I can, and this will make it faster and easier.

What 'fandoms' are eligible to nominate characters in?

The Silmarillion and other histories of Middle-earth - JRR Tolkien
The Lord of the Rings - JRR Tolkien
The Hobbit - JRR Tolkien
Smith of Wootton Major - JRR Tolkien
Leaf by Niggle - JRR Tolkien
Farmer Giles of Ham - JRR Tolkien
The Hobbit (Jackson Movies)
Lord of the Rings (Movies)
Shadow of Mordor - Video Game
The Lord of the Rings Online

Please do not nominate anything under All Media Types.

Can we nominate the same character under different 'fandoms' - i.e., can Aragorn be nominated under both 'The Lord of the Rings - JRR Tolkien' and 'Lord of the Rings (Movies)'?

Yes. We want to keep the books and movies separate for this exchange, so if you would be happy to see Aragorn, for instance, in fic or art involving either book canon or movie canon, please nominate him (separately) under both. You would nominate him like this to differentiate:

For book-based fandoms: Aragorn (Tolkien)
For movie-based fandoms: Aragorn (Jackson)
For Shadow of Mordor: Aragorn (SoM)
For Lord of the Rings Online: Aragorn (LOTRO)

AO3 will not let you nominate the same character under two different fandoms if you have not differentiated them.

How do I nominate?

Go to the Tag Set and click on My Nominations. Fill in the first 'fandom' you want from the list above - it will auto-complete after a moment. Add up to 10 characters you want to request and/or offer in that 'fandom'. You may nominate in up to 5 'fandoms'. If you are nominating a character who appears in multiple canons, do so by adding (Tolkien) for a book canon, (Jackson) for a movie canon, (SoM) for Shadow of Mordor, and (LOTRO) for Lord of the Rings Online. See the tag set for examples of ones that have already been added.

Can I nominate relationships or pairings?

No, only characters. When you sign up, you will be able to select what category or categories of fic or art you would like - m/m, f/f, f/m, gen, other, or multi. This should mean you will receive the kind of fic or art you'd prefer to offer or request.

If you have any questions about how this will work, please ask!

About & Links

"And yet their labour was not all in vain; and though nowhere and in no work was their will and purpose wholly fulfilled, and all things were in hue and shape other than the Valar had at first intended, slowly nonetheless the Earth was fashioned and made firm. And thus was the habitation of the Children of Ilúvatar established at the last in the Deeps of Time and amidst the innumerable stars."
- Ainulindale, The Silmarillion, JRR Tolkien

Innumerable Stars is a character-based Tolkien fandom gift exchange.
