A few questions before I get too wedded to any of my ideas.

1. What would you think of the Ocean-Born Mary story? It's a piratey ghost story legend, and is presented here: http://americanfolklore.net/folklore/2010/07/oceanborn_mary.html

2. What would you think of the Lord Dufferin ghost story/urban legend? Inspiration for Twilight Zone episode Twenty-Two, and presented here: http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/forum/topic/62236-birth-of-an-urban-legend/
It's also on Snopes. I'm not interested in Dufferin specifically, but the whole "person sees the coach and guy, then later sees him on the elevator" idea.

Both of them also appear in C.B. Colby's Strangely Enough (1959) but I know they're supposed to be available online.

3. What if instead of a Phantom Passenger, we wanted the story of a Phantom Place (a la Return to Glennascaul)?

So on my #3, I found a specific story here: http://americanfolklore.net/folklore/2009/05/phantom_diner.html

I'm not wedded to the location, but I love the whole "we went back and the place had been gone for 20 years" sort of story.

There's also Return to Glennascaul which has a Wiki entry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Return_to_Glennascaul AND the movie itself is available on YouTube (about 22 mins): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=59yMEgjY-1w BUT I don't like it as much because it also drags in the "vanishing hitchhiker".

Yes, I was kind of waiting to see what else people put up (plus indecision!).

I went with the Ocean-Born Mary and Room for One More, and then the Lady Lovibond story I've put up the other 2 years. (I decided to give Ariadne and the Sacrificial Maidens a break this year and the Phantom Passenger as well.)

I LOVE this exchange, it always helps me stretch and do something I'm not used to.

And I love good ghost stories! These two also appear in a book together, but it's sadly not on google books.

(whispers) Can we pretty-please have another fandom next year? We promise we'll be good.

I nominated three stories that weren't on AO3 previously. In case that's an issue, here are the sources:

1) The Samurai Maiden (I'm using the title from Not One Damsel in Distress: World Folktales for Strong Girls, collected and told by Jane Yolen, rather than the considerably longer title from the linked webpage.)

2) The Death of Koschei the Deathless

3) King Lindorm

Are those okay? If not, I can find other stories to nominate.

pantsoffdanceoff: The words *censored* over a silhouette of pants (Default)
From: [personal profile] pantsoffdanceoff
I nominated two stories where the character tags don't seem to be associated with the story. Basically, I have no idea what I'm doing, and would appreciate help on how to format them?
The stories are:

- The Cowherd and the Weaver Girl
http://www.theepochtimes.com/n3/835790-the-cowherd-and-the-weaver-girl/
(Nominated: Weaver Girl, Cowherd, their daughter, and the ox)
*Weaver Girl and Cowherd seem to be associated with the Chinese mythology tag. Should I change the fandom tag?

- The Ballad of Mulan
https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Translation:Ballad_of_Mulan
(Nominated: Mulan, Mulan's older sister, Mulan's younger brother, one of Mulan's comrades in arms)
*There are different tags in the archive for Mulan, Hua Mulan and Fa Mulan. The second name comes from a later 16th century play that also marries off Mulan without her consent, and the third name is Disney's transliteration of the Cantonese pronunciation of the second name. I'd prefer using the tag for Mulan, if that's possible?

Thank you! That makes a lot more sense.

For the second part, ignore me. I thought I had to use one of the existing tags to disambiguate them /o\

I've nominated:

The Bold Thady Quill (source) and (source)

Hope those are OK!

Question!

I believe last year I nominated American Tall Tales as a single fairytale/fandom with the four characters Pecos Bill, Slue-foot Sue, John Henry, and Paul Bunyan. They were segmented into separate fandoms in the tagset. This year, should I submit them separately?

Date: 2017-01-26 02:01 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] lalalalalawhy.livejournal.com
I nominated the following:

John Henry (American Tall Tale): http://americanfolklore.net/folklore/2010/07/john_henry.html

Pecos Bill and Slue Foot Sue (American Tall Tale): http://americanfolklore.net/folklore/2010/08/pecos_bill_and_sluefoot_sue.html

Paul Bunyan: http://americanfolklore.net/folklore/paul-bunyan/

Thank you!

A quick question - I nominated Yeats's poem "The Wanderings of Oisin" and I wondered if the tag needed to be somehow disambiguated so as to show that I am requesting that particular poem, rather than the larger volume of poems of the same name? Apologies if this is not an issue at all - I am new to this exchange!

Thanks! I actually couldn't remember exactly how I had done it.
Here's the wikisource link to the poem: https://en.m.wikisource.org/wiki/The_Wanderings_of_Oisin

Very excited for this exchange!

Oh, good. Sappho doesn't have proper titles or consistent fragment numbering, you know.

I do prefer the Anne Carson translations in If Not, Winter, but the rules. :p

I am a complete idiot and messed up what the deadline was- my fic is not posted. What's the best thing for me to do now? Label it as a treat?
