I would love love love to see some Memoirs Of A Geisha pieces this time! My heart would jump if they were Mameha-centric (but Hatsumomo or even Sayuri would be awesome), because it feels like there are maybe five fics around on the Fanfic archives. So... Nominate Mameha or Hatsumomo and I'll love you forever. ♥

Also, what would I give for some more Catelyn Stark centered fic... But then the number of pieces involving her is way higher than 500 on AO3 :/

And can I just say that I'm incredibly excited about this? :D ♥

the ocean at night

About Catelyn: she's tagged in a lot of fics but very few of them are actually about her. It's very frustrating. Only about 1 out of every 10 fics tagged with her name actually features her as more than a background character. It'd be great if this could be taken into account when determining eligibility.

Animated universes are separate from comics, yes. Since they're technically different universes with their own canons, which happen to share characters. But even then, it's kind of different versions of the characters? Anyway, so yes! You can nominate Wonder Woman under DCAU, and then again under DC comics, if you wanted to? And those will both count as separate categories. But all the titles Wonder Woman appears under in comics taking place in the main continuity would be considered a single fandom. If you wanted to nominate a particular comic AU, then that could be its own category (depending on how it relates to the main canon), since it's a separate universe. Does that make sense?

I am not entirely sure if I even answered your question, but yes, if you separate those categories, and her numbers fall within eligibility (which they seemed to on FF, at least when I last checked), then she should be eligible.

Kelly Shiring
Penny Ngwenya
Sharon Li
Oda

I would love to see stories about the following ladies!

Also I really suck at describing.

DC COMICS (pre-reboot specifically)
DONNA TROY. Wow there are definitely not enough tics about her and she’s fabulous (can provide suggestions for reading material if you’re interested)
KORIAND’R/STARFIRE. I’m not sure of her eligibility, but most of the fics about her seem to be fics about the show version, which is very different? So…yeah I don’t know.
GRACE CHOI. She’s such a badass, it’s a serious shame there aren’t more tics about her!
ANISSA PIERCE. Canonically dated Grace, and again, there are just not many fics about her!

BIOSHOCK INFINITE
ELIZABETH. She’s the deuteragonist and there aren’t that many fics about her! She’s a girl in a video game who runs around with the playable character and you don’t have to protect her, come on, that alone is awesome.
ROSALIND LUTECE. There are some great Lutece fics but not enough. Rosalind is a scientist in the early 1900s. SUPER AWESOME.

BIOSHOCK 2
ELEANOR LAMB. Also a badass lady, with a traumatic past, set in a ~1960s underwater city.

AMERICAN HORROR STORY (PS: this is on Netflix!)
VIOLET HARMON. I don’t know how to describe her. Actually all the girls in this are awesome. As are the girls in the other seasons of AHS! So there’s that.

KUSHIEL’S LEGACY
MELISANDE SHAHRIZAI. She’s an incredible antagonist, very complex and cunning and intelligent. And okay horrible but I love her to pieces.
PHÈDRE NÓ DELAUNAY. The protag of the first series, and one of my favorite heroines.

I can probably think of more but it's late.

Yay for Call the Midwife! :-) I don't know whether I'll offer or request it, but if someone writes it, I'm definitely reading. Wonderful, brilliant show.

(I'm watching on the US PBS-broadcast schedule, though. Avoiding UK spoilers for the new season! We'll get it here in... March?)

lizzie close-up

How about Kate Heightmeyer from Stargate: Atlantis? There are 240 works for her on the ao3, and 56 of those were written by me, because I'm that person. Ff.net has maybe two dozen, if you click all the filters while hunting for Kate fic.

Also, from the new Sleepy Hollow show, Katrina Crane has 48 works about her (most of those are not featuring her) and Jenny Mills only has 84 stories about her, and again, I think she is not featured in most of them.

It sounds like all three of those women should be eligible according to those numbers. :)

Regina Mana

I haven't gotten around to checking rarity yet, but these are the things I was thinking of nominating.

Disney Animated Canon - Specifically I will be nominating Elsa, Mulan, Belle and Alice. Last spot will be up for grabs.

Ame-Comi Girls - I have really, really fallen in love with this and it is my first comic fandom (though I am reading others). I will be nominating Kara Zor-El and Kara Jor-El, the other three spots will be up for grabs.


For my last two spots I am debating between Precure, Suikoden III, Atelier series, Resonance of Fate, Diner Dash series, Sakura Trick, Nobunagun, Kill la Kill, Power Ranges, and Yami the Hat and the Book Travelers.

Er...I don't think that Elsa's eligible; she's in 300 complete stories of 1000 words or more in English on FFnet. (Anna's in 325.)
