Hi, guys! Due to several hours of downtime on AO3 today + my general state of tiredness, I will be going to bed early tonight. Signups will be extended until I get up in the morning. This is likely to be around 7am EST. Please have your signups in by then, as they will not open to allow late signups once I have begun matching!

Two Days!!

Some relationship tags are not displaying automatically in the signup form as they should be. If any relationship tags for your fandom are missing from the signup form, you will have to type them in. As long as you type them in exactly as they appear in the tagset, they should go through.

Signups for All In The Family 2017 are now open!

Relevant links: Signup Form | Letters Post | Tagset | Requests Summary

Signups will close at 11:59 PM EST on April 2. Assignments will go out by April 9.

If you have any problems signing up or have any questions or concerns, please let me know ASAP. You can either comment to this post or email me (famexmod@gmail.com).

If you notice any further misspellings, wandering tags, duplicates, etc, in the tagset, please bring them to my attention! I will fix them as they come in, provided that fandom/relationship has not yet been requested; if it has been, I will probably leave it as-is.

Now that signups have opened, I will not be adding any more fandoms or relationships to the tagset.

Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire and Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire have both been merged with Pokemon (Main Video Game Series). For the most part, I've been trying to leave things where they were nominated, but in this case a few people asked for it to be changed. Once it had been explained in greater detail, I did think it made more sense this way.

All nominations have now been reviewed. If your nominations were rejected and shouldn't have been, your approved nominations are mysteriously missing, or your nominated relationships are in the wrong fandom, please let me know by 11:59 PM EST on Saturday. Please include the link to your nominations!

All known misspellings, duplicates, and wandering tags should have been taken care of. If you see any, please let me know!

In regards to some of the wandering tags I asked about before, the nominators for the Batman and Fullmetal Alchemist relationships didn't show up, so I went with what other commenters seemed to prefer. The Batman relationships went into DCU (comics), while the FMA ones went into Anime 2003. As for K'Ehleyr/Worf, after googling I decided that probably belonged in The Next Generation. Additionally, Batman - All Media Types had no relationships left, so I deleted that fandom from the tagset. If you are the nominator of any of these and I got it wrong, please let me know, again by 11:59 PM EST on Saturday.

As of right now, there are officially 471 fandoms and 2934 relationships in the tagset. :D

There are 8 fandoms left to be reviewed, but I'm hitting Error 500s when attempting to approve anything. I'm going to try again in an hour or two, and if I'm still having issues then, will send in a Support ticket. I know AO3 was having some downtime earlier today, so hopefully this will clear up on its own and not become a huge thing.

If you nominated Final Fantasy VII or Tales of Destiny, I am aware that there are 0 relationships for them in the tagset. They appear to still be intact on the nominations review page, but if any are missing when I am able to approve them, please let me know.

ETA: I'm also getting timed out when trying to submit a Support ticket! I'm giving up on this for now, and will try again tomorrow. Should I be unable to work with the tagset over the weekend, signups will be delayed (but I don't anticipate that).

If you write a letter, you can link to it here! For the best results, include your AO3 username and requested fandoms/relationships in your comment. If your letter is currently a placeholder or is locked, it would probably be better to hold off linking to it until it is finished and public.

Nominations are now closed!

Over the next two days, the rest of the new nominations will be reviewed (this part should be done by the end of the day Friday, as there are only 13 new fandoms pending), and the tagset cleaned up.

If your nominations were erroneously rejected, contact me by the end of the day Saturday with your argument. Please include a link to your nominations. No new fandoms/relationships will be added after signups have opened.

If you find any duplicates, misspellings, or wandering tags in the tagset, please let me know ASAP! I would prefer not to hunt these down after signups open unless I really have to (and if something has offers/requests when an issue is brought up, I am most likely going to leave it as it is rather than risk breaking something).

Signups will open on Sunday. Given my current night owl tendencies plus the fact that the tagset already looks like it's in pretty good shape, there's a very good chance signups will open promptly at midnight. :P

I've made a change to the defaulting policy. Previously, I intended to have a default deadline, and people who defaulted before that deadline would still go to pinch hit. Since it's looking like this exchange is going to be much larger than I expected when I started making up the rules on the fly, I've decided that's more than I want to try to keep track of, especially given how hectic things are likely to be around the deadline.

The new policy: If you default, and your assigned person also defaults, you will not go to pinch hit.

A default this year will not affect your eligibility for next year*. Next's year's defaulting policy will depend on how it goes this year.

Also, just as a reminder: You have four and a half hours left to get your nominations in!

*I don't actually know if I'll have the time to run this exchange again next year, but if I can, I will. It's been a lot of fun so far!

The maximum allowed requests/offers have changed. You will be able to request 1-20 relationships in 3-10 fandoms, and offer 1-20 relationships in 4-10 fandoms. :)

To the best of my knowledge, duplicates and misspellings that have been pointed out to me should be taken care of. If you brought up a misspelling or duplicate that is still in the tagset, it has fallen through the cracks; please remind me and I will fix it for you!

See the two posts below this for wandering tags in various fandoms. :)

I went through similar-sounding fandoms in the tagset and found some more wanderers. If you nominated any of the following relationships, please let me know where they belong. If I don't hear back by Friday or so, I'll make my own determination at that time.

Please see yesterday's post for Batman, Marvel/DC comics and related movie/TV fandoms, and Star Wars.

I was familiar with most of yesterday's fandoms, while today's fandoms are mostly those that are clearly related due to having similar names and showing up close to each other on the alphabetized fandom list. Fandoms I am unfamiliar with that have very different names may therefore have fallen through the cracks - so if you happen to notice any other wandering tags in the tagset, please let me know!

Fire Emblem:

The following tags are present in both Fates and Awakening.

Fauder | Validar & My Unit | Avatar
Inverse | Aversa & My Unit | Avatar

Fullmetal Alchemist:

The following tags are present in both Anime 2003 and Brotherhood & Manga.

Alphonse Elric & Edward Elric
Alphonse Elric/Edward Elric/Envy
Scar/Scar's Brother

(I'm moving all three of these to the anime).

A Series of Unfortunate Events:

The following tags are present for both the book and the TV series.

Klaus Baudelaire/Violet Baudelaire
Violet Baudelaire/Count Olaf

Star Trek:

The following tag is present in both The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine.


(I'm moving this to TNG)

Fatal Frame:

The following tags are present in both Zero | Project Zero | Fatal Frame Series and Zero: Akai Chou | Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly.

Kurosawa Sae/Kurosawa Yae
Kurosawa Yae/Munakata Ryouzou

Wandering tags, here we go.

If you nominated anything in a fandom with more than one version, and you did not disambiguate your nominations, please check this list and AO3 to make sure they are where they're supposed to be. If you did disambiguate, your tag was not moved from the fandom in which you nominated it (except possibly in the case of Logan, which was merged with Wolverine (Movies)).


For Batman, the options seem to be Batman - All Media Types, and Batman (Comics). Some also appear in DCU (Comics). If no one steps forward by Friday or so, I will probably put Alfred & Bruce in All Media Types, anything with Damien Wayne into DCU, and the rest into Comics (this is judging purely by where similar ones are already sorted). If no one steps forward by Friday, these will probably all go into DCU (Comics), as that's the current preference indicated in the comments to this post.

ETA: Alfred & Bruce is also wandering over to Gotham now, but I just added that fandom so I know it doesn't belong there.

Alfred Pennyworth & Bruce Wayne
Bruce Wayne & Damian Wayne
Dick Grayson & Damian Wayne
Dick Grayson/Bruce Wayne
Dick Grayson/Damian Wayne 
Dick Grayson/Jason Todd/Damian Wayne
Jason Todd & Damian Wayne
Jason Todd/Damian Wayne
Jason Todd/Bruce Wayne
Tim Drake & Damian Wayne 
Tim Drake/Bruce Wayne
Tim Drake/Damian Wayne 

Marvel, MCU, Arrowverse, DCU, Star Wars:

The following fandoms should be completely disambiguated: Agent Carter (TV), DC Cinematic Universe, Fantastic Four (Comics), Marvel 616, Marvel Cinematic Universe, X-Men (Alternate Timeline Movies), X-Men (Comicverse), X-Men (Evolution), Wolverine (Movies).

The following fandoms are not completely disambiguated, but did not appear to have tags wandering between each other. I did disambiguated a few that seemed to have wandered over to DCU (Comics): Arrow (TV 2012)DC's Legends of Tomorrow (TV), The Flash (TV 2014).

DCU (Comics) is mostly sorted out, except for the wandering Batman tags mentioned above.

Star Wars has also been disambiguated. I put everything with Kylo Ren into The Force Awakens, everything with any combo of Luke, Leia, Han, and Darth Vader into Original Trilogy, and Boba & Jango Fett into the Prequel Trilogy. (Some things had already been disambiguated as they came in, so this list is not exhaustive.) If any of the relationships moved to the original trilogy actually belonged in The Force Awakens, please let me know and I'll move it. Also, it is fine for Darth Vader to be in the TFA tag, as he is mentioned and his relationship to various characters is known in that movie.

Harry Potter - I didn't actually need to do anything for Harry Potter, after all, as it is showing up as Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling in both Movies and Books, which makes it the same tag for the purposes of this exchange. Yay for not having to sort through 53 relationship tags!!

If you nominated anything in any of these fandoms, please check and make sure I put them in the right place. They seemed fairly intuitive once I got started on them, though, so for the most part I believe they are sorted correctly.

Going Forward:

Tomorrow, I'm going to go back through comments to see if there are any wandering tags I missed, and nuke the duplicates people have already brought up. If you see anything I don't seem to know about yet, please let me know!

As of right now, nominations are also caught up.

Hey guys, I had an unexpectedly busy weekend, so I was unable to do the work on the tagset I had intended to yesterday and today, and am too tired to start at this late hour. I expect to spend most of the morning/afternoon/possibly the entire day tomorrow reviewing any new nominations + figuring out wandering tags. Expect a post about canons such as Star Wars, Harry Potter, Batman, MCU, etc sometime tomorrow. To those who have already posted clarifications for canons with wandering tags, thank you, that will make my job that much easier! 

As a reminder, the tagset will close at 11:59 PM EST Thursday the 16th, while signups will open on Sunday the 18th (exact time depending on when I am up and think that the tagset is as accurate as it's likely to get).

Hey guys, right now we have about 20 outstanding fandoms waiting to be approved (down from 50 a couple of hours ago), as well as some relationships for already-approved fandoms. I'm hoping to get through most of the rest tonight to be caught up again, but we'll see.

I think I've gotten all of the duplicate relationships and misspellings people have pointed out so far. If you pointed out a duplicate or misspelling, and it is still there, could you please remind me what it was?

There are some fandoms that need to be disambiguated because of wandering tag issues. This includes MCU, Harry Potter, Star Wars, DC canons, Marvel in general, and probably others. If you nominated in any of these fandoms and could let me know which relationships go with which canon, that would be helpful. (I'll inquire in more detail about this once I have the chance to start sorting through the fandoms with issues.)

If you've noticed any other fandoms with wandering tags or other issues, whether major or minor, please let me know!

All relationships nominated up until now have been reviewed. If any of your nominated relationships were rejected and you believe they should have qualified, please post a comment to DW or email me (famexmod@gmail.com) to explain why you think the relationships counts as family. In general, if the characters do not share a surname, it would be a good idea to comment on DW when you nominate them.

If you see something in the tagset that shouldn't be, please let me know that as well. My definition of "family" is a fairly loose one when it comes to this exchange, but if a relationship tag contains no two characters who are actually related/view each other that way, then that tag definitely does not belong.

I'm taking a break now, and later tonight/tomorrow I'm going to start going through the rest of the duplicate/wandering tags people have pointed out. If you brought up an issue in the tagset before today that has not been taken care of by Tuesday Wednesday Thursday*, please drop me another note about it, since it may have been lost in the shuffle.

*Stressful week, lol

The end date for nominations has been changed. It was March 18, 11:59 PM. It is now March 16, 11:59 PM.

When I originally made the schedule, I hadn't realized how much would be involved in approving nominations and cleaning up the tagset. Closing the tagset two days earlier will give much-needed buffer time to make sure everything is good to go for signups, which are scheduled to begin on March 19.

 The nominations period for All In The Family is still longer than usual, including two full weekends (March 4-5 and March 11-12).

General notes

As of right now, there are 279 approved fandoms and 1570 approved relationships in the tagset! So we're moving right along. That said, there have been various issues, and are some things you guys can do to make things go a little smoother.

1. When nominating, use full names when applicable, and use canonical tags when they exist. Before nominating, please check to make sure the relationship you are nominating is not already in the tagset; this will help prevent doubling up on tags when one person nominates A & B and another person nominates B & A.

2. If the characters you are nominating do not share a surname, it would be very helpful if you would post a comment on DW to tell us how they are related. This goes double for obscure fandoms, very new fandoms, and fandoms where the characters' relationship is a twist later in the series.

3. If you're nominating relationships for something like X-Men where there are many versions, disambiguate your tags if possible! Example: Raven | Mystique & Charles Xavier (ATM) or Raven | Mystique & Kurt Wagner (Comicsverse).

4. For those of you already doing any of these, THANK YOU! You're making me and the auxiliary tagmod's lives so much easier!


Tolkien tags have been sorted into The Hobbit - All Media Types, Lord of the Rings - J. R. R. Tolkien, and The Silmarillion and other histories of Middle-Earth - J. R. R. Tolkien. If you had a nomination for Tolkien fandoms that now seems to be missing, please check to make sure it's not there in a slightly different format, since we did have a few doubles; if it seems to be missing entirely, let me know!


The X-Men tags were migrating everywhere, but I think I figured out where most were meant to go. If you nominated relationships for X-Men, please check X-Men (comicsverse) or X-Men (Alternate Timeline Movies) to make sure your relationship nominations are where they're supposed to be. If you nominated X-Men (Original Timeline Movies), I didn't find anything I thought was supposed to go there, so that fandom is currently gone; contact me if this is wrong.

There were a few relationships that didn't seem self-explanatory. If you nominated any of the following, please let me know where they're supposed to go:

  • Clint Barton/Pietro Maximoff/Wanda Maximoff - this might be MCU?
  • Pietro Maximoff & Wanda Maximoff - MCU, comicsverse, or ATM?
  • Pietro Maximoff/Wanda Maximoff - MCI, comicsverse, or ATM?
  • Yashida Mariko & Yukio - Comicsverse or Wolverine (Movies)? (ETA: They keep migrating into Original Timeline Movies, so I'm putting them in Wolverine (Movies) for now. Let me know if they should be moved to Comicsverse instead.)
  • Speaking of Wolverine (Movies), should Logan (2017) and Wolverine (Movies) be combined? ETA: Nominations for Logan have been moved to Wolverine (Movies).

Terminator (Movies) and Terminator Genisys have been separated. Most of the relationship tags for the Terminator franchise, including The Sarah Connor Chronicles, have been disambiguated. If you nominated either of the following relationships, though, please let me know where they are supposed to go:
  • John Connor & Sarah Connor
  • John Connor & Kyle Reese
