Hey, all -- it's come to my attention that there's a confusingly-worded trope in the tag set that I let slip through. If you either nominated or are requesting the trope "Saying Their Soulmate's Last Words", could you please clarify what you mean by this trope?

(On that token, if you're not sure what a trope means, I highly recommend you do not offer it. There are many other wonderful tropes in this tag set!)

Thanks to everyone who replied to my earlier post. Sorry I didn't get the chance to reply to you all individually, but Life happened. Seems that pretty much everyone is in favor of pushing back the signups to last another week, so I'm going to do just that. The new closing date for signups is 11:59 PM UTC on Sunday, April 16.

To make up for cutting into writing/arting time, the gift deadline will be pushed back two weeks (so as not to conflict with [community profile] familyex. The new gift deadline will be 11:59 PM UTC on June 3. Thank you to everyone who weighed in!

"Denna (Legend of the Seeker)/Marian of Knighton (Robin Hood)" and "Fancy Rae Baker (Fancy)/Ann Rutledge (Damien)" have been nominated under the fandom "Once Upon A Time (TV)". If you nominated these relationships, please modify your nomination to place them under "Crossover Fandom" instead. Thank you!

If you nominated "Red String of Fate", please modify your nomination to specify whether you want it as a soulmate trope or a soulbond trope. Edit: One nomination for this trope was changed to specify soulmates; thanks! One nomination for this trope remains, though. Second nominator, if you want this as a soulbond trope please modify your nomination to say so.

Edit: If you nominated "Defying Fate", please modify your nomination to be more specific about what it is you're looking for. Additionally, please specify whether you want it as a soulmate trope or a soulbond trope.

Thanks to everyone who's nominated so far. The tag set looks great! I just have a few requests:

1. When nominating a fandom that has multiple incarnations (such as Marvel Comics vs. MCU or Voltron: Defenders of the Universe vs. Voltron: Legendary Defender), please disambiguate your relationships with the version of the canon you're nominating. I try to catch these when I can, but if you disambiguate when nominating, the process goes a lot smoother. Your tags should look like this:

- Steve Rogers/Steve Rogers (MCU)
- Allura/Lance/Hunk/Zarkon (Voltron: Legendary Defender)
- Heymans Breda/Yoki (2003 Anime)

(Obviously, substitute the correct fandom if you're nominating a different one than in these examples.)

2. Crossover nominations should go under the fandom "Crossover Fandom", and should be formatted like so:

- Lyra Belacqua (His Dark Materials)/Matilda Wormwood (Matilda)
- Ichabod Crane (Sleepy Hollow TV)/Garcia Flynn (Timeless TV)

3. Freeform/trope nominations need to specify whether they're soulmate or soulbond tropes, as some participants will only want to match on one or the other. To those who nominated "Red String of Fate", please modify your nomination to clarify whether you want it to be a soulmate or soulbond trope.

I said I was going to sleep but it looks like I was wrong, whoops. One more note on nominations: If you're nominating a fandom that has different incarnations (such as Marvel Comics vs MCU, Jem and the Holograms comics vs the cartoon, etc.), please disambiguate your relationships with the version of the fandom you're nominating:

Examples:
- Barbara Gordon/Dinah Lance (DCU Comics)
- Keith/Shiro (Voltron: Legendary Defender)
- Phyllis "Pizzazz" Gabor/Jem | Jerrica Benton (Comics)

Many thanks to [personal profile] sirvalkyrie for pointing out the issue that not disambiguating causes, i.e. tags can drift between related fandoms.

I've corrected the tags that are already in the tag set, but please disambiguate your nominations from here on.

Edit: Also, to the person who nominated "True Love's Kiss" as a trope, please modify your nomination to specify whether you want it to be a soulmate or soulbond trope. Thank you!

I won't be approving the tags Romantic Soulmates and Platonic Soulmates. Whether a relationship is romantic or platonic is already determined by whether a slash or ampersand is used in the relationship name. To those who nominated these tags, please replace these nominations with something else!

Yes, gifts where the main relationship are not soulmates or soulbonded will certainly be allowed, but in that case you'd want to use a tag more along the lines of "In Love With Someone Else's Soulmate".

Remember that matching will be on an or basis, meaning that you only need share one relationship and one trope in common to be matched as a recipient and gifter.

(And on that note, I'm probably going to head to sleep since it's late here. Nomination approvals will recommence in the morning. Thanks to everyone who's turned out thus far!)
