The nominations are now closed. A formal list of all nominated fandoms will be posted tomorrow (Monday) so people can double-check that their nominations were listed properly and/or write fics to be eligible in more fandoms.

Sign-ups will go live on Friday. Pinch-hit sign-ups will also be made available at that time.

We do have one final query:

The Hobbit - All Media Types: As with other "All Media Types" nominations, we need the nominator to specify whether they want the book or the films. Since nominations are closed, please comment to this post and we will edit the tag for you.

First, an update re: previous queries.

  1. We are allowing the nomination for "Hunger Games Series - All Media Types." Since there is relatively little difference between the plots of book series and the film series, it was decided that most remixers would be familiar enough with all characters to remix either media type.

  2. We are splitting Star Wars into three distinct fandoms: "Star Wars Original Trilogy," "Star Wars Prequel Trilogy," and "Star Wars Sequel Trilogy." We had originally accepted "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," but this will be changed to "Star Wars Sequel Trilogy." Currently, that is the only Star Wars fandom nominated, so if you plan to offer fic about the prequels or the original trilogy for the remix, please nominate them before this weekend!

And we have one more query:

  1. Wicked - All Media Types: Because Wicked the book and Wicked the musical are two very distinct fandoms with very different plots, we need the nominator to clarify which fandom they are nominating. Please either alter your nomination or leave a comment here so that one of the mods can alter it for you. Thank you!

We've had some questions pop up in the last couple days re: nominations, and they are ones which require participant input. If you are likely to request or offer any of these fandoms at sign-ups, we would greatly appreciate your comments. As always, mods will have final say, but we want to make informed decisions.

  1. The Hunger Games: Currently, there is a nomination for "Hunger Games Series - All Media Types." If we accept this as-is, then anyone who has written a combination of book-based and movie-based stories which meet our matching criteria is eligible to use this fandom for requests. However, anyone who offers to remix this fandom must be prepared to write a remix for stories which may be based on the books or may be based on the films.

    Neither of the mods are familiar enough with the books or films to know whether there are significant differences between the two media types that would make it difficult-to-impossible for someone familiar with one to remix a story based on the other. If there are not significant differences, we would be amenable to accepting the nomination as-is rather than requiring separate nominations for "Hunger Games Series - Suzanne Collins" and "Hunger Games Series - Movies."

  2. Star Wars: At this point, the only Star Wars film currently nominated is Star Wars: The Force Awakens. However, we had a query about whether the films would be taken as solo films, as separate series (IE, prequels, original trilogy, new series), or as a single umbrella fandom. We are leaning toward accepting these as separate series, with The Force Awakens as a one-off since the challenge will end before any more films are released. We would also be willing to accept the films as an umbrella fandom if there is a consensus among participants.

Nominations are clicking along well, but we need clarification about two pending nominations:

  • Hunger Games Series - All Media Types
  • Les Misérables - All Media Types

To the people who nominated these fandoms: We need you to specify whether you are nominating the books, or the films and/or theatrical performances based on them. We have neither accepted nor rejected these nominations at this point, so you may edit them, or you can leave a comment here with the specific media type you want and we will change your nomination.

Thank you!

The FemmeRemix 2016 tagset is now up and nominations are now live.

Please only nominate fandoms in which you have written three or more stories of 500 words or more OR five stories of 100 words or more about or involving canonical female characters. This is to help us streamline matching.

As a reminder, here are the rules regarding crossovers and megafandoms:

For the purpose of matching, stories which require knowledge of one or more canons are considered crossovers. This includes most instances where two canons take place within the same universe, though there are some exceptions.

Example: You have written three 500-word stories that use characters from both Lord of the Rings and the Silmarillion. You do not qualify in either fandom because we cannot guarantee that you will match on both Lord of the Rings and the Silmarillion.

The biggest exception to this rule is the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which has multiple interrelated canons. To simplify the MCU as best as possible while still allowing for the prolific overlap of many of these canons, we have divided it thusly:

The Avengers (Marvel Movies) — Includes all stories involving characters who are currently part of the Avengers team: Ant Man, Avengers 1-2, Iron Man 1-3, Captain America 1-3, and Thor 1-2.
Daredevil (TV)
Agent Carter (TV) — Includes both the TV show and the short film.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (TV)
Guardians of the Galaxy (Movies)
Jessica Jones (TV)
