We've had a few requests for a post to discuss/suggest/etc. potential pairings for nomination, so here is that space. Have more that you want to see nominated than you have space for? Interested in knowing what other people might be nominating so you can start thinking of what you might offer or request? Open space to do all of that here.

The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison? The fandom is small but enthusiastic, and there are probably still less than 200 fics for the book total, meaning that every m/m pairing is eligible. :D

What about the Riddick movie series? The first movie has a strong space scifi flavour mixed to a thriller plot. But the second is completely different, the scifi becomes a space fantasy and has the bigger chunk of world-build (galaxy-build?) of the series. The third movie is a mix of the two first movies. The movies aren't about complex plots, they are all about the characters and the setting. I love the canon to pieces because of it, the atmosphere, the settings and the characters are intense. I'm totally going to request (and offer) more slash about it.

Anyone offering Ace Attorney and/or Twin Peaks? If so, what would you like to focus on?

For Ace Attorney, I'm going to be offering Blackquill/Fulbright, the ship I cherish though the game wrecked it so thoroughly. I am open to suggestions of other nice pairings though (as in, not like Phoenix/Kristoph or something, I'm not familiar with writing that sort of relationship). AA is one of those fandoms that isn't dominant on my list of loved fandoms, but has lived in my heart for years, and I'm always interested in considering aspects of it I hadn't before.

Oooh, good! Same, basically. I might offer it too, depending on how the tagset turns out! A definite option. idk, I'll probably nominate a couple of crossover Ace Attorney/Ghost Trick ships and I was curious to see which ways the AA side of the exchange was leaning :D

Anyone else into Kamen Rider? I'm thinking of nominating W (but not Shotaro/Philip, since even if it fits the letter of the rules it feels like cheating to nominate something so relatively popular...), Kuuga, Fourze, and Ghost.

(Not 100% sure on Fourze... I might use my fourth slot for some crossover ships instead.)

(I see someone else in the tagset nominating Kamen Rider and Sentai, come say something???)

Is anyone into iZombie? I'd love to receive and/or write for that fandom.

Sidenote, I'm on board with almost any MCU rare pairs, but I don't think there are many.

I always request this and it's the one thing no one ever offers. Will it help if I sell it a little? Hope springs eternal, right? Right?

These are short, gently humorous novels about two best friends and the hijinks they get up to in early 20th century England--first as boarding school roommates, then as coworkers and roommates in London, then on a trip to NYC during their university years. Psmith is a whimsically eccentric mastermind. Mike is a practical-minded, slightly shy everyman. They love each other so much!! And are super repressed about it!! If you like quietly self-sacrificing devotion, this is the ship for you. If you like odd couples, this is the ship for you. If you like Brideshead Revisited-style romantic friendships, this is the ship for you.

You can get these books for free on either Gutenberg or Amazon. You only really need to read the first two to be able to write it. The order is "Mike & Psmith", then "Psmith in the City", then "Psmith, Journalist", then "Leave It to Psmith". I'm not a huge fan of "Psmith, Journalist", but you can enjoy the amazing shippiness of chapter 3 and the epilogue without any context. Mike doesn't appear in Leave It to Psmith, but Psmith is still completely obsessed with him, offering to commit grand larceny for his benefit.

Just skim through all the cricket if you don't care about cricket. It isn't important (spoiler alert: Mike always wins). If you aren't into boarding school tales, you can start with the second book, which is my favorite. I'll be honest; these books were written early in PG Wodehouse's career. If you're looking for technical brilliance on the level of the Jeeves&Wooster novels, you won't find it. But it doesn't matter. The boys' relationship is the main focus here, and it's so beautiful. And even PG Wodehouse's less brilliant work is still heads and shoulders better than 99% of any other authors' best works.

Oh my God, Wodehouse?! I was just thinking of buying some more of his books because The Adventures of Sally upset me so much that I need him to redeem himself in my eyes. Of Psmith, I've only read Leave it to Psmith and I'll admit that it didn't give me the best impression of Psmith because of the trouble he lands my bae Baxter in but then again if I hated everyone who dragged Baxter I wouldn't like anyone much, but if you recommend them, I'll pick up the others and read them on my flight next week!

Oh dear. I've never read The Adventures of Sally, so I don't know what happened. I'm shocked to hear that anything upsetting happened in a Wodehouse book ever! But also, you're so totally right that if if you hated everyone who bothered Baxter, there wouldn't be anyone to like (except Lady Constance). I mean, even Lord Emsworth has shot him in the ass.

Definitely give Psmith another chance. He only got Baxter in trouble because he wanted to help Mike (who is my darling). The first two books are basically just about Psmith doing ridiculous things to either help Mike out of trouble or make his life better in some either way. It's weird and sweet. Enjoy!

Shocked is how I felt when I realised that Wodehouse was actually taking romance seriously in The Adventures of Sally. I've seen someone say that love in Wodehouse's world is a whimsical, comedic plaything, and I agree, so I was not expecting the seriousness of the latter half of The Adventures of Sally at all. And he didn't carry it half as well as he carries silly little romances in his other books. Perhaps it's partly my fault I disliked it so much though. Of course I fell in love with the character who was doomed to be cast aside, humiliated and heartbroken. Of course I did. It was Baxter all over again, except worse, because there wasn't even the presence of a kindred spirit like Lady Constance to defend him.

*cough* I'm sure it's just an exception to the brilliance of Wodehouse. Other than Blandings and Jeeves, I've read his Bachelors Anonymous, and I adored every minute of it. I'm sure I'll love Psmith too!

I personally don't mind long letters as a gifter at all. I write best when I'm prompted, and narrow constraints often provide a challenge for my creativity that I enjoy, even.

And as a recipient, I totally know what you mean. I always end up writing horrendously long letters. I try to cut it down, and I still end up with something that's probably twice as long as necessary. But these are my OTPs we're talking about. It is a very serious business, haha.

I still have free slots for X-Men Movies, Fantastic Four Movies, Farscape TV Series and Riddick Movies, if anyone is interested in nominating characters for these fandoms.

So er, just realised that we're supposed to offer and request a minimum of 4 fandoms? Haha, I thought it was three for some reason, so I'm one offer short. Anyone got space to nominate my old love Perry the Platypus/Heinz Doofenshmirtz for me? Honestly, I consider myself such an avid shipper, but when it comes to actually numbering my ships, I have so few ...
