I have extended sign-ups by an additional twelve hours. They now end at 11:59 Zulu on the 19th. I use the 24 hour clock so that is in the morning.

I have a few small final tag issues.

Eline Carien, Pelim Felicita, Sandwalker Jannik - They became unassociated. Where do they go?

The following have wandered into Original Work: Richard Adams, Ruby Carter, Yaël. If these are you are knowledgeable about these characters then comment.

Anyone know about where The Author showing up in Portal came from?

Community Challenges

All of these are optional and just for fun. I wanted to try some more specific challenges, but kept a general one that anyone can participate in.

1. General Challenge – This year’s general challenge is to have at least one work for a third of all the requested fandoms.
2. Trick Challenge – For the trick challenge the goal is to create 100 gifts involving monsters. These can be traditional monsters, human monsters, monsters specific to the canon, and original monsters. You may include magic using humans as monsters if you feel it fits. Any gifts created for the Trick challenge should be tagged as ToT: Monster Mash
3. Treat Challenge – In honor of gaining a sibling exchange, the treat challenge is to create 100 gifts involving relationships. These can be romantic or platonic, healthy, unhealthy, between any gender combination. Any gifts created for the Treat challenge should be tagged as ToT: Chocolate Box.

While the Trick Challenge and the Treat Challenge were created with Tricks and Treats in mind they do not have to match. You can do a Trick that is also part of the Treat Challenge and vice versa.

Nominations Closed

Nominations are now closed.

Dude, where's my noms?

There are two ways you can make your noms approval go faster:
-Disambiguate for me so that I don't have to. This is especially helpful on things like anything connected to comics, Star Wars, Game of Thrones/Song of Ice and Fire, anything with multiple versions, any RPF, characters with short, common names. If you can think of how it could show up in another fandom then disambiguating is helpful.
-Provide info if it is a rarer fandom especially if it doesn't have it's own wiki in English, a comprehensive wikipedia page, a good characters section on TVtropes, or a good characters list on imdb.
