This time around, I'm going to propose some changes from last year. Let me know what you think!

1. Change from nominating single characters to relationships -- both romantic/sexual (/) and friendship/family/platonic (&).

2. Adding several more fandoms! The fandom list at the moment looks like this:

Born of Hope (2009)
The Fall of Arthur - J. R. R. Tolkien
Farmer Giles of Ham - J.R.R. Tolkien
The Father Christmas Letters - J. R. R. Tolkien
The Hobbit (Jackson Movies)
The Hobbit - J. R. R. Tolkien
The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth Beorhthelm’s Son - J. R. R. Tolkien
The Hunt for Gollum (2009)
Leaf by Niggle - J. R. R. Tolkien
The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún - J. R. R. Tolkien
The Lord of the Rings (Movies)
The Lord of the Rings - J. R. R. Tolkien
The Lord of the Rings Online
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor (Video Game)
Mr. Bliss - J. R. R. Tolkien
Roverandom - J. R. R. Tolkien
The Silmarillion and other histories of Middle-Earth - J. R. R. Tolkien
Smith of Wootton Major - J. R. R. Tolkien
The Story of Kullervo - J. R. R. Tolkien

3. I'm considering breaking The Silmarillion up into multiple separate 'fandoms' -- such as The Children of Húrin and Beren and Lúthien. However, this seems really complicated and I'm not sure how to divide it, so any assistance would be really welcomed. Also, if this would encourage people to participate -- I know that a lot of people prefer one part of The Silmarillion over other parts, or only want fanfic about Númenor or something, so if you'd be into that, let me know!

Please comment if you might be participating, even if only to say that you are fine with the changes! I'd really appreciate it, there's nothing worse than feeling like you're talking into the Void with only Morgoth as your audience! :D

ETA: I've had to change the date for opening nominations due to a family emergency.
