How many nominations do we get?

3! 0-4 characters per nomination.


What is eligible?


  • Fairy-tales (examples: Cinderella, The Moonchild and the Bamboo Cutter (Kaguyahime), The Snake Who Became The King's Son-in-Law)

  • Nursery-rhymes (examples: Little Boy Blue, Three Little Kittens Have Lost Their Mittens, Jack Be Nimble)

  • Tall tales (examples: Paul Bunyan, Johnny Appleseed)

  • Legends (Holy Grail, El Dorado, Robin Hood, Atlantis, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legend#Legends_in_folklore)

  • Myths (Heracles and his twelve tasks, Thor's Wedding, Isis reassembling Osiris after the whole Set thing. Because this section is religion focused, the mods will only allow anything that is not considered secret or restricted to practitioners only)


The definition between all of these are blurry, which is why they were all included.


How specific do I need to be?

Say the name of the story. Cinderella versus 'Perrault's stories', Gawain and the Green Knight versus 'Arthurian Mythology.'


I want [this version] instead of [this version] but they're known by the same name!

In this instance, simply use the common English name or Ao3 tag (if it exists) of the tale along with any story-specific characters you want, and use your letter or sign up form to specify which version you want and (please) include some sort of link to your preferred version.

Hi, update: We want you to be as specific as possible in choosing your fairy tale for the tagset as per the polite request of the wranglers. Sorry for the change in policy!

If your story doesn't have a common canonical name, choose something descriptive (Medusa and Athena (Greek Myth) for example) and go with that. If you're stuck, consult a mod for help.


What else should I be aware of?

Ideally the story you want fic of should be available freely and legally online. In some cases, a version translated to English may not be available so please contact the mods to work out special cases like that. This is to make the exchange as accessible as possible!

Where do the nominations take place? I can't find a nomination form/page on LJ, DW or AO3.

I would, but it seems your most recent post has addressed the issue.
