This year's tagset is now visible. (Alphabetical view.)

We approved 534 nominations this year. That's 329 more than last year! Please check the list even if your fandom was rejected, as it may have been approved under a related tag.

For those who like to keep track year-to-year, this year's most nominated exchange was Leverage with 9 nominations.

We rejected only 3 fandoms:
  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Star Trek Beyond — As they're installments in a series. We view these like nominating one book in the Harry Potter series. However, we're open to accepting installments next year.

  • The Hunger Games - All Media Types — As we've approved The Hunger Games films and novels separately. Because participants can choose both in a request or offer, we felt All Media Types was superfluous. Again, we're absolutely open to discussion on this next year.

  • Signups open Tuesday, July 18th @ 8:00 AM PDT. (Compare to your time. See the current time in Los Angeles.)

    If you have any questions or concerns about the tagset, please comment here or email crossoveringmods@gmail.com.

    Otherwise, we'll see you at signups! We look forward to taking advantage of all the changes to this year's exchange—and we hope you are, too!

    Nominations have now officially closed. We'd like to thank all of you who took the time to nominate, and we sincerely hope to see you all at sign-ups when they begin on July 18.

    Until then, please make sure to watch this space. Although we don't expect to have as many questionable fandoms as we have in previous years, there may still be questions we have for nominators, so be on the lookout. We will begin approving fandoms right away and will continue through the next day or so until we have a complete tagset. We plan on getting the tagset up as soon as we can, thus giving everyone time to peruse the list of fandoms before sign-ups open.

    You may notice during this process that some of your fandoms will be listed as rejected or approved at AO3. But, please keep in mind that this does not necessarily reflect what will or won't appear in the final tag set. (Should your fandom be listed as approved, it likely is. Should your fandom be listed as rejected, it may be approved under a different tag.) Once the tag set is complete, we will make it public and post here to let everyone know that the review period is over and if there are any issues or discrepancies with your nominations, you can let us know at that time.

    Thanks again for nominating!

     There is one hour left to get your nominations in! We will be closing the form promptly at 11:59 p.m. PDT (what time is that for me?)

    Information on how to nominate is available at this post.

    Nominations are now open on AO3!

    We're so excited for this year's exchange, we're getting started a little early: you will have until July 15 @ 11:59 PM PDT to nominate up to 8 fandoms you might want to request or offer for Crossovering. (What time is that for me?)


    Don't worry, we'll give warnings here and on Tumblr multiple times before we close nominations, and we'll make sure everyone has plenty of time to get them in.

    Now, here's how it works:
    • If you've done nominations for Yuletide or another exchange, this will be very familiar. You'll go here under your AO3 account and select up to 8 fandoms.
    • If the Archive provides you with a fandom tag while you're typing, please use that. It will make the process run much more smoothly.
    • Once you've filled all of the slots, just click on submit at the bottom of the page and you're done! (Of course, you aren't required to use all 8 slots.)
    • For fandoms with multiple continuities, you have the option of using the umbrella fandom tag (Fandom X - All Media Types, or Fandom Y and related fandoms, for example), or nominating each continuity separately (Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy VIII, &c.). Please check in at the Brainstorming Post to see if you have any overlap with another participant. 
    • Nominating fandoms is not a commitment to participate in the exchange itself! We'd love to have you, but if you just want to make sure the bases are covered for friends or to make sure there is something you're interested in if you do sign up, go right ahead! No one can write it or request it if it isn't nominated.
    • If you're still unsure about how the exchange works, make sure you take a look at our FAQ page.
    • If you need to let the mods know information about your fandom that will help it get approved or tagged properly, please leave that info in the comments so we can refer to it when we review nominations. Any other questions or comments or discussion of nominations can take place here as well.

    As always, if you have any questions or need any assistance, do not hesitate to ask! Happy Nominating!

    The tagset for this year's challenge is officially viewable. Check out the default view for a list of all fandoms eligible for this year's exchange.

    We had a record number of nominations this year, so we ended up approving 205 fandoms, including all fandoms that had 2 or more nominations. Please check the list even if your fandom was rejected, because it may have been approved under a related tag. We did have to reject many fandoms, but hopefully there are still plenty available for everyone to formulate their requests and offers.

    This year's most nominated fandoms were:
    1. Revolution (TV) - 14 nominations
    2. Harry Potter - 13 nominations
    3. Marvel Cinematic Universe, Killjoys (TV), Buffy the Vampire Slayer - 10 nominations
    4. Hamilton - Miranda, Forever (TV) - 8 nominations
    5. Young Wizards, Person of Interest, Veronica Mars, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Leverage - 7 nominations

    A few important things to note: 

    We approved a tag (currently under Uncategorized Fandoms) for Final Fantasy (Video Games). If requesting or offering this fandom, please keep in mind that the following entries in the series were the ones nominated and will likely be what the nominators are requesting: 

    Final Fantasy VII
    Final Fantasy X & Final Fantasy X-2
    Compilation of Final Fantasy VII
    Final Fantasy XIII


    We also have two Star Wars related tags: Star Wars - All Media Types and Star Wars: Rebels. Star Wars - All Media Types should only contain requests for the movies in the series, not animated series, comic books, video games, books etc. None of those were nominated, so they are not eligible. You may specify in your requests which movies you'd like to read about if necessary.

    If you have any questions or there are any issues with the tagset, please let us know ASAP. Otherwise, watch this space for a lot more activity as sign-ups will begin soon!

     We have already approved a lot of fandoms, but are working on doing the rest and, as usual, we have a few questions and a few notices. So please take a look and if you see any of your fandoms mentioned, we'd appreciate your feedback. The quicker we hear from people, the quicker we can post the complete tagset for you!

    James Bond movies
    We received nominations for both James Bond (Movies), and James Bond (Craig movies). Both received enough nominations to be approved as is, but if the nominators would rather have them combined, we can do that as well.

    Evil Dead
    We received one nomination each for: Evil Dead - All Media Types, Evil Dead (Movies) and Ash vs. Evil Dead. Separately, they would not be approved, but if there are no objections, we will approve Evil Dead - All Media Types as one fandom.

    X-Men movies
    We received nominations for: X-Men (Original Timeline Movies), X-Men (Alternate Timeline Movies) and X-Men (Movieverse). We have decided we will approve the first two, but unless there are reasonable objections, we will reject the Movieverse nomination as it is redundant.

    Battlestar Galactica

    We have already approved a tag for the 2003 Battlestar Galactica series. But, we also have nominations for a generic Battlestar Galactica tag. Please let us know if you are nominating the 2003 series, or the original series, so we can approve it or just fold it into the already approved tag.

    Dragon Age

    We have a tag for Dragon Age - All Media Types currently approved, but also received nominations for Dragon Age - video games and Dragon Age: Inquisition. DAI would not make it in alone, so please let us know if you'd prefer the All Media Types tag (thus including extra materials outside the game) or if we should stick strictly to the generic "video games" tag. 

    Final Fantasy

    None of the individual Final Fantasy nominations received more than one nomination. If there are no objects to combining them, we will go ahead and approve a Final Fantasy - All Media Types tag.

    Marvel Cinematic Universe
    Just as in previous years, all nominations for individual movies in the MCU will be combined under the Marvel Cinematic Universe banner. (This does not count Sony or FOX released Marvel movies, only those in the MCU continuity.)

    Star Wars
    All Star Wars nominations will be put under the Star Wars - All Media Types nominations due to not enough nominations for them to pass individually. 

    Percy Jackson
    The book series and the All Media Types tag received 1 nomination each, thus not qualifying them. If there are no objections, we can combine them into one tag (All Media Types) and approve it that way.

    Thanks in advance for your responses, and if we have any other questions as we finish this process, we will be posting here again!

    Nominations have now officially closed. We'd like to thank all of you who took the time to nominate, and we sincerely hope to see you all at sign-ups when they begin on July 7.

    Until then, PLEASE WATCH THIS SPACE. We will be reviewing nominations over the next few days, and it is highly likely that we will have questions regarding some of the fandoms that were nominated. In order to make this process go smoothly, we will need prompt responses from the people who nominated them. 

    You may notice during this process that some of your fandoms will be listed as rejected or approved at AO3. But, please keep in mind that this does not necessarily reflect what will or won't appear in the final tag set. (Should your fandom be listed as approved, it likely is. Should your fandom be listed as rejected, it may be approved under a different tag.) Once the tag set is complete, we will make it public and post here to let everyone know that the review period is over.

    Nominations will begin in close to a week, running from June 24 through July 3.

    The purpose of this post is to promote your smaller fandoms (to help ensure they make the cut), or to organize nominations for fandoms with multiple continuities (as in which fandoms can/should be combined as a larger umbrella fandom). Or, you can just chat with others about what fandoms you're nominating or hope will make it to see if you can drum up interest. 

    For a refresher, here's how nominations will work:

    • You can nominate up to eight fandoms.

    • We will automatically approve the top 100 fandoms with the most nominations, though it is probable we will approve more than 100 fandoms. (Last year, we had 128 fandoms in the tagset, and will likely reach or surpass that number, based on participation.) While there is no magic number of nominations a fandom needs to make the cut, as we base it on participation, your fandom will likely need at least two nominations to make it

    • Sign-ups will require a minimum of three fandoms that can be crossed with each other in each individual request, with six fandoms maximum. (You are required to make at least three requests, with five requests maximum.)

    When nominations begin, we will post more detailed instructions about how to nominate on AO3. Until then, feel free to check out the FAQ.

    The tagset is now visible: default view; alphabetical view.

    This year, we approved 128 fandoms, including all 2-nomination fandoms except the following:
    • Chronicles of Narnia - All Media Types — Rejected because Chronicles of Narnia - C.S. Lewis received more nominations and was approved.

    • Doctor Who — Rejected because Doctor Who & Related Fandoms received more nominations and was approved.

    • Stargate - All Series — Rejected because Stargate Atlantis, Stargate SG-1, and Stargate Universe each received more nominations and were approved separately.

    The top nominated fandoms were:
    1. Forever (TV) — 13 nominations

    2. Fringe and Harry Potter - J.K. Rowling — 10 nominations

    3. Leverage — 9 nominations

    4. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (TV) and Stargate Atlantis — 8 nominations

    5. Brooklyn Nine-Nine (TV) — 7 nominations

    The following fandoms were rejected because they each received only 1 nomination. Some were folded into a larger tag. If you think an error was made, or if you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.

    Most of this year's nominations have been processed. Tomorrow, we'll make the tagset public so you have a little time to consider your crossover ideas before sign-ups open on Tuesday.

    We do have 2 decisions we would like your input on.

    First, Final Fantasy X & Final Fantasy X-2 and Final Fantasy XIII Series each received only 1 nomination. If the two can be combined -- and if that's what those who nominated them want -- the combined tag will be approved for this year's tagset.

    Second, the following Star Trek fandoms each received only 1 nomination: Enterprise, The Next Generation, The Original Series, and Voyager. If you want, we can add the general Star Trek tag to represent each of these. (Star Trek: Alternate Original Series was approved on its own, so you will be able to distinguish between the original continuity and the alternate one.)

    Let us know what works for you -- and thank you for all your great nominations this year!

    Nominations will begin in just one week, running from June 1 through June 12.

    You can use this post to promote your small fandoms (the more people who nominate/offer/request, the more likely you are to have fic to read or write!), and to organize nominations for fandoms with multiple continuities. Or just talk about what fandoms you hope make it this year to see if you can drum up interest.
