How to Make a Nomination

  • First find drabbles you like. I recommend searching merlin100, merlin_ldws, merlin_tweetfic, the drabble or ficlet tags at merlinxarthur, or sorting by pairing and word count at Archive of Our Own.
  • For each nomination, please indicate in a comment to this post: Category, Title, Authur, and URL. Your nominations will be screened.

  • Remember: You don’t need to offer a nomination for each category—just nominate the drabbles you want to.


Categories that have 3 or more entries will be voted upon. :)
