Nominations Reminders

  1. Different incarnations of a Time Lord or Lady count as different characters for this, so people will be able to select exactly which version they want to request or offer. We will not be approving relationships with general identities (such as "The Doctor", "The Master", "Romana") - please change your nominations and specify a version!

  2. Relationships should be formatted with slashes (A/B), not ampersands (A & B) - to make matching easier, we don't separate romantic/sexual and platonic relationships. We will not be approving nominations with ampersands, so if you nominated any such relationships, please change your nominations to the correct format.
In general, please make sure you've read the nominations instructions carefully before nominating!

Public Call 2017 - Nominations

Nominations are now open.

Nomination Form on AO3

To view the approved tags in the tag set you can go here.

You will need an AO3 account to nominate relationship tags now and to later participate in the exchange. If you don’t have an account yet, you can request an invite here.

Nominations will stay open until 1st October.

You can nominate any relationship involving two or more characters from the extended Whoniverse. Crossovers with other fandoms are not allowed for this exchange. You can nominate up to 15 different relationships. The form also asks you to specify the fandom for every relationship, but as only Whoniverse characters are allowed you can leave the field blank as long as the relationship is already a known tag on the AO3.
  • Relationships must be formatted like this: Character A/Character B, Character A/Character B/Character C. etc. Normally AO3 uses relationships tags that link character names with a / to mean romantic/sexual relationships and those that link names with a & to mean familial and platonic relationships or friendships. For the nominations, sign up and matching we won’t be making this distinction. (Later when you post your fic you can tag however you think is appropriate.)

  • Different incarnations of the Doctor or other Time Lords count as different characters, so, for example, Tenth Doctor/Jack Harkness and Twelfth Doctor/Jack Harkness would be two separate relationships.

  • Relationships must be unambiguous, so please use the most specific/full name of the characters (for example Fifth Doctor, Martha Jones ...). If one of the characters has only a single, non-unique name (for example, “Jenny”), use a disambiguated version (“Jenny (Doctor Who: The Doctor’s Daughter)”). When you start typing into the nominations form, AO3 should bring up suggestions. Choose the most specific phrasing, or create something new if the relationship you want has not been used on AO3 before.

AO3 has a detailed guidelines on how to format canonical tags. We’ll try to approve the form of a relationship tag that is closest to the “canonical” form. To make this easier please use the autofill to pull up a suitable synonym for the relationship you want to nominate wherever possible. It pulls canonical (wrangled) tags from the full AO3 tag set.

You don’t have to nominate in order to participate, but only nominated relationships can be requested and offered during this round of the exchange. To make matching easier please only nominate relationships that you actually plan to request or offer!!

The mods will check all nominated relationships while nominations are in progress. All relationships that meet the criteria above will be approved, though they might be approved under different names than you gave. You can change your nominations only until they have been approved or rejected, so be sure of your nominations before you submit them! For more information on how the Ao3 nominations process works also check this detailed nominations tutorial made for the [community profile] yuletide exchange. (In the case of [community profile] yuletide fandoms and characters are nominated. In our case only relationship tags are nominated.)
