  1. If nominating characters on their own, nominate in the form "Character & None". Tags in the form "Character & Any" won't be permitted.
  2. Nominations including original characters will not be accepted.

Kings (TV 2009)
  • Michelle Benjamin/David Shepherd - This has 34 complete, English works. Multiple pairings are tagged in many of these, and some are crossovers, so it has not been rejected immediately. If you nominated this ship, please provide evidence for why there are ten or fewer valid works.

Fire Emblem
  • Flavia/My Unit | Reflet | Robin, Izana/My Unit | Kamui | Corrin, My Unit | Kamui | Corrin/Nyx, My Unit | Kamui | Corrin/Rinkah, My Unit | Kamui | Corrin/Yuugiri | Reina. - These tags have migrated. We are unsure whether they were originally nominated under Fates or Awakening.

Multiple fandoms
  • The nominations listed here which are formatted as "Character & Any" have not yet been adjusted by the nominator. Unfortunately, due to the way the AO3 approval interface works, the presence of these tags is making it difficult for us to process new nominations. If these tags remain in the same format 24 hours from the time of this post, we will adjust them all to the "Character & None" style.
    • In addition to those listed previously, three more relationships formatted "Character & Any" have been nominated under "Lamento -BEYOND THE VOID-". They are Firi (Lamento) & Any, Froud (Lamento) & Any, and Kagari (Lamento) & Any. They too will be adjusted if not changed within 24 hours.

Nominations clarifications remaining from previous posts are below (under the cut).

Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes; Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (TV 2016); Mass Effect Trilogy; Voltron: Legendary Defender  )

On a whim, I watched Gamers! today. People were talking about how it had fairly current games in it and I thought to myself, "I'm a videogame nerd. Let's do this!" I didn't think the games were that current, but that's not the important part. The important part is this series is so cute. So. Cute.

I can't even with how cute everything is. I thought it was going to be kinda skeevy from the first episode and who knows maybe it will be, but the 2nd episode! That sold me. That 1000% sold me.

I did laugh at myself when the series basically caught me thinking, "Oh Amano, you're going to be my bicycle. Guy, girl, you can bang them all" And then Amano screams out, "I have no interest in men" Well played, series. Well played.

I actually kind of like the twists of tropes in this series. It's going to be a fun romcom from what I see. I actually laughed watching this and usually I just kind of enjoy romcoms. Although to be fair, I'm more laughing at how self-aware the series it. It's like it knows your thoughts and just mirrors it back to you in unexpected ways.

Mostly though, Amano's pure heart and totally obliviousness is a killer for me. Right through the heart. I can't wait to see what other feels he inflicts on the rest of the cast with his pure hearted love of gaming. Oh Amano, I kinda wanna ship you with what's-her-face(Sorry, no one's name, but the MC's stuck), but I feel like my lulz factor will be more if you just slowly drain the sanity out of her by completely missing her extremely obvious signals some more.

I read this article and it looks like some of the private student loan holders can't produce proof that people actually owe them money.

I've told basically anyone I know with a significant amount of private student loan debt. Even if you aren't in default like the people in this article, you always have the right to demand that a loan hold produce proof that you actually owe them a debt.

Of course, this won't work for the federally held loans. The feds can produce the paperwork. That said, if you have federal student loans, you're probably not suffering too bad considering all the options available for repayment and the various ways you can petition to forebear payment.
