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