 Nominations are open! You can find the tag set here.

Before we start nominating, some preliminary information!

Character Nominations
You are able to nominate characters and character combinations! This means the following:
  • Character A (video game title) - A fanwork where Character A must be the focus;
  • group: Character A & Character B - A fanwork where the gen relationship of Character A and Character B is the focus;
  • group: Character A/Character B - a fanwork where the shippy relationship of Character A and Character B is the focus. You are also free to nominate group: Character A/Original Male Character or group: Character A/Original Female Character.
Matching is "OR", meaning that you match on a tag. If you want Character A and Character B in your gift, nominate them as a group. If you nominate each of them separately your creator only has to include one of them. Please keep that in mind when nominating!

Crossover Fandoms
Crossover character combinations are eligible. There are some basic rules though so that I don't cry a lot.
  • When nominating a crossover, the fandom is Crossover Fandoms. I have already nominated Crossover Fandoms into the tag set so please use that spelling. Not nominating a crossover into this fandom will mean that nomination will be rejected;
  • Nominations can be for gen fic or ship fic;
  • Nominations are to be written like this: Group: Character A (Video Game 1) & Character B (Video Game 2) (or group: Character A (Video Game)/Character B (Video Game 2);
  • There is no limit of the number of characters that are in a tag set, short of AO3's character limit;
  • All characters in the crossover combination must be video game characters.
Series of Games
This year the test for whether a game is part of a series and should be nominated as one is as follows:
  • Is the game marketed as being part of a series (i.e. a trilogy, games set in the same world etc etc);
  • Are the games that make up the series part of the same continuity or different continuities?
  • Is there a significant crossover of characters between the games?
Feel free to comment to discuss! At the moment:
  • Dragon Age (Video Games) is the correct tag for any nominations for Dragon Age: Origins, Dragon Age II, and Dragon Age Inquisition;
  • Final Fantasy games are separate to each other, except for the ones that are explicitly in continuity with each other
  • Kingdom Hearts is a separate continuity from Final Fantasy;
  • The Star Ocean games can be nominated separately;
  • I am open to discussion for the Kiseki series (Trails in the Sky, Trails of Cold Steel etc);
  • Fallout can be nominated separately;
  • I haven't made up my mind about Avengers Academy (Video Game) as I don't know anything about it, so if you want to nominate it please tell me about it in the comments!
If you are considering nominating a game that could be a series, or could be a tie-in, please drop a comment below so that I can hash it out with you first!

Now have at! Nominations close at 11:59pm EST on 1 July 2017, though the post for tag set cleanup could be a bit later on the 2nd because I have a concert for video game music at around that time.
