Marvel is Marvel 2017 Letters Post


Feel free to link your letters in the comments below! Please use the provided form:


Nominations Closed

 We're doing final review of the tagset. Please do the same, but keep in mind:
  • If your nominations are rejected, most likely they are included in the tagset under a different name, especially if we had to go fix some tags drifting into other fandoms.
  • If you nominated gen relationships in the format of "character & character", these are being rejected and replaced with any character nominations missing from the tagset. If you would prefer any team ensemble tags or something else, please reply to this post.
  • There are many umbrella tags, from as large as all of Marvel Comics to as small as a single run of comics or a single TV show in the greater MCU. Seeing a character or relationship showing up in several of these is to be expected.
We'll continue to review the tagset through tomorrow, so if not everything is reviewed yet, don't fret. We'll get there. :D

Sign ups open Tuesday.

Nominations Reminders

Greetings, other-mod here with a few reminders.

1. Nominations close this Saturday, October 14. If you're still thinking about nominating, there's no time like the present.

2. If you nominated & characters and haven't yet read the clarification post, please do so and either modify your nominations or let us know what you'd like to do.

3. The Marvel (Comics) umbrella is a big one. If you nominated characters under this umbrella and meant to put them into a specific universe, please do so before nominations end. Otherwise, you run the risk of a match in a universe you may not have intended.

Questions? Ask away. Thank you!

Still Looking for Answers on Clarifications Post #3

  • Questions on this post here: https://marvelismarvel.dreamwidth.org/11314.html
  • Also, if you have Character & Character nominations, please revise them. We are not using an & system for making gen requests. Gen requests should be done through character nominations or by nominating an entire team under relationships. As we are hand-matching, we will take your prompts into account in matching.

Nominations Clarifications Post #3


  1. General
    1. Character and team nominations are used to make gen requests. The mods will be hand-matching, which means we'll take into account your prompts for character combinations. However, the rules are not set up for gen relationships using &. The relationships field is used to nominate pairings and teams. We are not rejecting & nominations at this time, so you can rework your nominations to suit yourself, but they are cluttering up the queue of nominations we can actually see to approve, so please consider changing your nominations to the system we're using for this exchange.
    2.  

    3. If you nominate a team, please disambiguate which team roster you want. See the Rules and FAQs for more details if you need help.
    4.  

    5. If you see a rejected nomination, this was likely because the character, relationship, or team is already approved in the tagset under a slightly different name or spelling or disambiguation tag.
    6.  

  2. Avengers Academy (Video Game)
    1. Claire Temple & Everyone - This should just be Claire Temple or if you want an ensemble, please nominate the ensemble as a team. Please edit the tag to whichever of those you want.
    2.  

  3. Marvel (Comics)
    1. Does the nominator want this to be all timelines and character versions available or did you have a particular timeline in mind? If you nominate the characters under Marvel (Comics), then you would be allowing matches from any run or 'verse of comics, e.g. Ultimates, 616, Noir, etc.
    2.  

Feel free to ask any questions on this post!

Nominations Clarifications Post #2

  1. Marvel Cinematic Universe
    1. Natasha Romanov | Black Widow (MCU) and Wanda Maximoff | Scarlet Witch (MCU) - Both Natasha Romanov (MCU) and Wanda Maximoff (MCU) are already in the tagset as approved. Do you want them explicitly with their cape names?
  2. Avengers Academy (Video Game)
    1. Claire Temple & Everyone - This should just be Claire Temple or if you want an ensemble, please nominate the ensemble as a team.
  3. Marvel (Comics) - Does the nominator want this to be all timelines and character versions available or did you have a particular timeline in mind? If you nominate the characters under Marvel (Comics), then you would be allowing matches from any run or 'verse of comics, e.g. Ultimates, 616, Noir, etc.

Marvel Is Marvel 2017 Promo Post




banner by broadbeam


The idea here is to organize a gift exchange designed for Marvel and its many branched runs, authors, related and unrelated fandoms. The idea is to include the X-Men side and the Avengers side and every other side that non-Marvel fans don't realize is Marvel. The idea is to include any timeline you want, any world you want, any character you want, so long as it's Marvel.

NOW OPEN FOR NOMINATIONS

Nominations Clarifications Post #1

Questions, questions, questions! And a couple of answers:
  1. Agent Carter (TV)
    1. Jack Thompson/Original Male Character (AC) - You can request him paired with original characters under Jack Thompson the character, but upon mod consultation, we are not allowing original character nominations at this time.
    2. Similarly, gen requests are expected to occur under characters. You don't have to use & pairings, but can incorporate anyone you want with your characters in the prompts. Matching will occur on characters, relationships, and teams. As we are hand matching, that will take prompts into account.
  2. Guardians of the Galaxy (Movies)
    1. Groot & Guardians of the Galaxy Team (Guardians of the Galaxy (Movies)) - First question, isn't Groot a member of the team? You can just nominate the team. And second question? Which roster do you want: GOTG, GOTG2, some modified version of the above, or any?
  3. Marvel Comics/Marvel Cinematic Universe
    1. Lando Calrissian (Star Wars Comics)/Steve Rogers (MCU) - Star Wars Comics are a Marvel property but they are not part of the Marvel multiverse and probably shouldn't be lumped in under Marvel Comics. You may nominate these under Marvel Cinematic Universe/Star Wars Marvel Comics or one of those two fandoms without the crossover. Which would you prefer?
    2. Steve Rogers (MCU)/Steve Rogers (Ultimates Comics)/Tony Stark (MCU) - This should be nominated under Marvel Cinematic Universe/Ultimates Comics or just plain MCU or Ultimates. Which would you prefer?

Nominations Open!


Nominations: Sunday, September 24 - Saturday, October 14

We have a rather long nominations period due to Yuletide Signups happening in the middle. This should allow you two non-Yuletide weekends to nominate your fandoms, characters, relationships, and teams. Anyone can nominate, whether you intend to sign up or not. It is suggested that you only nominate what you want to either offer or request.  

Nominations Review: Sunday, October 15 - Monday, October 16

Due to the long nominations period, we expect to review and clarify most nominations while nominations are still open. There will be a few extra days to make sure the mods have enough time to review everything.

Please see the Rules and FAQs for nominating guidelines.
 

2017 Exchange Rules and FAQs

Introduction

 

The Exchange

  Marvel is Marvel is a fanworks gift exchange of fanfic and/or fanart for:  
  1. Any canon produced by Marvel, including those not traditionally thought of as Marvel, e.g. Star Wars comics produced by Marvel. This includes, comics, movies, anime, or even particular runs or books or multiverse timelines.
  2. Any adaptation of a Marvel canon, e.g. movie adaptations of Marvel comics characters, regardless of producer.
  The exchange was born from my frustration with the X-Men Movieverse and the Marvel Cinematic Universe being separated, the many obscure comics runs that were often excluded from Yuletide despite their obscurity, and generally wanting an exchange for everything Marvel that allowed everything Marvel.

2017 Updating the Rules and FAQs

A few questions:

  1. Last year, we allowed gen relationships, pairings, or teams in the relationships field. Did this work for everyone? I would like to keep the No Characters/No Relationships method of requests/offers this year as it enabled better automated matching.
  2. Because crossover nominations or umbrella fandom nominating will both be permitted this year, it will be possible to request crossovers between different parts of the multiverse without having multiple fandoms per request. Does anyone want to be able to request multiple fandoms at once?
  3. Do you also want to be able to nominate a crossover character under a different canon than source canon? I'm up for this if the character is a canonical Marvel character from a different timeline.

And a few definite changes:

  1. This year we will allow crossover nominations. You can nominate crossover relationships with disambiguated source fandom in parenthesis, e.g. Clint Barton (616)/Natasha Romanov (MCU) under either character's fandom. You do not have to nominate both canons, but if the second canon ends up nominated by someone else, the crossover pairing may appear under both.
  2. This year I will not require cape names to be specified in nominations but will allow it if a participant wants more specificity. Hunting down participants to fix their noms was painful.

Alternate 2017 Schedule Option

Added a 5-week writing time version: http://marvelismarvel.dreamwidth.org/9229.html

Not sure I like it better, but I found moving it out didn't work well and that's very much as far as I can move it back. Stuck between a move and a Yuletide. Which do potential participants like better?

Marvel is Marvel 2017

We are going to run this exchange again in the fall after both mods have finished with some real-life major events.

That said, the rules and schedule will be looked at in the next few weeks to see about what changes should be made and what should stay exactly the same.

Stay tuned for more updates! :D

Authors Revealed!

I hope you all enjoyed the exchange! If I run this again, I'll do better at making sure time zones and differences show up correct in every location. Thank you all for your patience.

Collection Open!

A couple hours early. Everyone's got something, and I hope you all like your stories or art. Please go forth and comment!
