Hey, Snowpiercer (2013) has both "Curtis Everett/Namgoong Minsu" and "Curtis Everett/Namgung Minsu" nominated; Namgoong and Namgung are just different spellings of the same name, with (I think) Namgoong being the one used in the movie.

Is it possible to nominate "Any" under Relationships for a certain fandom?
(Meaning any ships that are eligible, not just any, period, obviously...)

Hey, I'm looking through the tagset and am wondering how Loki/Steve Rogers got through? It's nowhere near the cutoff of 200 fics.

I'm also wondering it about Bucky Barnes/Sam Wilson, but that's closer and I assume it fits under the cut when filtered out for threesomes.

There are 468 complete, >1000 words, English-language works for Loki/Steve Rogers, filtered here.

There's a weirdness about Loki in AO3. There's a "Loki" tag and a "Loki (Marvel)" tag. I wonder if you were looking at the "Loki" tag? The vast majority of writers use the Loki (Marvel) tag, but unless you're writing MCU/Norse mythology crossover fic that has nothing to do with Loki from the movies, the two Loki tags mean the same thing.

Hello, I'm the nominator of the rejected DCU (Comics) nomination. I know that Clark/Lex is a very popular ship (because of Smallville), but the almost entirety of the fics written is about the Smallville version, and I was hoping to request the comic version instead, because it is very rare, unrelated to the more popular canon, and the characters and their background are different from their Smallville versions. This also summarize essentially why I thought to nominate it here: a rare ship exchange seems the right place. :p

If you add the fandom tag to the search engine, it gives you '48' as number of stories. But they are actually waaay less, since quite a few of them borrow background information and characterization of the most popular version. Here's the link to the filtered results:

Are threesomes allowed? I wanted to nominate some threesomes but I thought it wasn't allowed (because of the last year being not allowed, if I'm correct). Now that I've used up all my slots I notice there's a threesome in the tag set, so I'm kicking myself for not asking before nominating. :(

Well, I see CĂș Chulainn/Emiya Shirou | Lancer/Emiya Shirou (Fate/stay night). Is that also a tag issue? It looks like it.

Oh, I see. Then I'm glad I haven't lost my slots for ineligible threesomes. :p

Mods, could activate anon commenting? Some people is cut out from the community like this. Also, here's delivering a message from a nonnie for you:

Dragon Age: Inquisition should probably be moved under Dragon Age (Video Games).

Both "Kent Parson/Original Male Character" and "Kent Parson/Original Male Character(s)" are under Check Please.
