The updated version of the rules says:

The “No Characters” tag in a prompt means that the requester is leaving the use of characters up to their creator. It does not prohibit a creator from using characters.

Including "No Characters" in the tag set for each fandom is designed to improve the chances of people matching to other people who want to receive/create the type of works they themselves are interested in, since some types of worldbuilding fanworks do not include characters in the traditional sense, or at least do not focus on them.

Here's how this will work in practice:

No Characters and Requests )
No Characters and Offers )

The tag set is now in its final form, for better or worse; if there are any remaining mistakes, I am afraid we will be stuck with them. Thanks to everyone who contributed corrections, especially the eagle-eyed Morbane.

Three Marvel characters decided to take a wander through the tag set, as is customary: Maria Hill, Tony Stark, and Scott Summers. To keep them in the right places, you will find that they have gained some repetitive extra bits to their tags; these can be ignored from the point of view of using them for your requests/offers.

I have turned the tag set into a Google docs spreadsheet here. This may be more useful but may also contain mistakes; in the event of discrepancies, the tag set on AO3 should be taken as definitive because that's what sign ups and matching will be working on. If anyone has suggestions for improving the presentation/useability of the spreadsheet, I am open to them (or if anyone wants to make a nicer version, I will happily link to that instead).

For those who are interested, the final count is 233 fandoms, 1677 characters (so 1211 characters outside "No" and "Original") and a whopping 1463 worldbuilding tags.

Sign ups will open very shortly.

ETA: Don't forget to check the Uncategorized Fandom section. All of Harry Potter and Middle Earth are in there, along with quite a bit of Star Wars. And many other fine fandoms.

Letters giving details of your requests/prompts/etc. are not required (requests will be visible throughout sign ups), but if you do write one, you can leave a link here so that other people can find it easily. Treats are very much encouraged in this exchange, and letters are often a good way for potential treaters to find potential treatees.

If you want to advertise your letter, leave a comment on this post with at least:

  • Your AO3 username
  • A link to your letter

And (optionally but helpfully):

  • Which fandoms you are requesting
  • Which types of fanwork you are open to receiving

If you wish, you can cut and paste the template below into your comment:

NB Please don't link to placeholder or locked letters here; if I spot any I will screen the comment in question until you message me to say that it's finished.
