First up, congratulations! We not only beat our total from last year, but almost doubled it: 211 fandoms and 1311 characters/combos. Well done everyone!

ADMIRE THE TAGSET. The capslock compels you.

Now! For the next couple of days, until signups open at probably 6am on July 4, we review the tagset to make sure that everything is where it should be. If something is not where it should be (aka a character has migrated from one game to another, or we have something in the tag set that is either not released or is not a game) please let me know.

If your nominated game is sitting in "Uncategorized Fandoms" this is because there is no canonical AO3 tag for your game. (Yet.) I am not a wrangler and so can't put the games into the right section. If you are a wrangler and you would like to wrangle these tags for the exchange, let me know what information you need beforehand and I'll get it to you.

Finally, we have the spreadsheet for the achievements! For those who have not participated before, last year we had a little challenge where we tried to "achieve" certain achievements on a list, much like in many video games. Some of the achievements are pretty hardcore! Some of them are going to be achieved in the course of the game/exchange. There is also a secret one! If we ever achieve it, I will reveal it. As you can see though, I need your help to come up with more achievement names for the ones for the games. While looking at the tag set, if you come up with something clever, witty, silly, or all of the above, for an achievement name, let us know!

Throwing out the first thing I think of for the stuff I nominated:

God Is a Chainsaw for Final Fantasy Legend
Vore Your Way To Victory for SMT: Digital Devil Saga
Broken the Silence for Lux-Pain
Just a Little White Lie for Liar! Uncover the Truth
and Die Another Day for Long Live the Queen? (though I'm not the only one to nominate the last one, so maybe someone else would have a less off the cuff idea)

Trophy suggestions
A hollow and ridiculous trophy - Darkest Dungeon

From: (Anonymous)
Since I nominated Touhou I may as well commit and figure out the title. And maybe threw some extras.

Grazing Bullets and Taking Names - Touhou Project
Creating a True Yuritopia - Kindred Spirits on the Roof
Genes of Awesomeness - Horizon Zero Dawn

A gift has appeared in the basement! - The Binding of Isaac

I'm trying to think of a clever music pun for Crypt of the Necrodancer but I'm coming up blank.

Also, there doesn't seem to be a line in the achievement spreadsheet for Undertale?
