Still ongoing: Irish Mythology needs a specific story, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty needs a version. Especially Sleeping Beauty. In one story (Perrault) she's woken up by the prince undertaking the quest and they get to know eachother by talking. In others it's significantly less pleasant.


Wise Men of Chelm - it looks like this is a genre of stories? I'll need a specific one, please. If I've missed something obvious, please just toss the source at me and I'll approve it.


Not a problem but just a heads up: To whomever nominated 'The Rape of Persephone', don't fret about it being changed to Hymn of Demeter - Homer. That's where the story is located and the name/source used each year. It's been marked as the story of Hades and Persephone in the sources sheet which will be posted for everyone's use once the tagset is closed!

Nominations close on the 5th

So go nominate!

Nominations are still ongoing! Found the perfect fairytale? Nominate!

Okay, outstanding issues:

Do you mean a specific section?

Whoever nominated the Aeneid and the Odyssey. These fandoms are fine as is, just you might want to fine tune it.

Ineligible under the rules, need changed

Irish Mythology. I will reject this if it is not changed to a specific story.

Cinderella - someone has specifically nominated 'Cendrillon', so if this story is not amended to a specific version of your choice, I will be changing it to Aschenputtel.

Sleeping Beauty: Please choose a specific version. Linking me to your source or what you want is fine and I can change it myself. Otherwise I'll choose one when it comes time. Probably the Perrault version.

Robin Hood (traditional): I need a specific source of this, not just *hand gesture* Robin Hood. Please tell me what source you want for Robin Hood or I will reject this. (People may remember Robin Hood was here last year - as the book by Howard Pyle)

Hi, today we need clarifications and outstanding issues from last post still ongoing (if you are IRISH MYTHOLOGY or ROBIN HOOD please respond).

But first I want to thank all the people who've been linking me sources and telling me about the stories they plan to nominate. I really appreciate it and I love hearing your reasons! Thanks, everyone!

Needs clarifying of which version

Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty! There's two identical nominations for these fandoms - unless anyone speaks up before end of nominations, I am going to split them up into the Charles Perrault and Brothers Grimm versions since there's 2 anyway.

If you meant a third version, please tell me!

Every tagset has its questions. So here's today's!

Source needed:

ALL FOUND (Thanks, Gehayi!)

Beauty and Pock Face - the wikipedia entry is complete enough I approved it, however, if anyone has a nice full version of the story on link anywhere, that would be useful. This seems like a really interesting story.

The Butterfly Lovers - same situation. I'd just like a more complete version to link, please.

Change or be rejected:

These will remain untouched in the tagset until I either get a response or the last day, at which point they will be rejected.

Irish Mythology - I need a specific story.

Robin Hood (Traditional) - can't be a nebulous myth, needs a specific version/source.

Lil' help:

The Aeneid and the Odyssey are both very long. If you have a specific part in mind, please tell me! Otherwise you may not end up with fic of the part you want. However, they are both approvable. I'll just be holding off on them until I either get a response or the last day when I will approve them.
