NFE 2017 Tag Set

Last call for tagset nominations! You can nominate HERE. I'll update the glossary below with anything that gets nominated by tomorrow.

Below is a glossary of the freeform tags for this year's exchange. Please remember that you don't need to use them! They are here a) to specify if you want a story about your requested character(s) in a particular setting or dealing with a specific concept and b) for people want world-building fic and don't care which characters it’s about. Whether or not you use the tags, you should use the text boxes in the sign-up form to explain what you’re looking for.

Narnian World Time Periods
While the periods are defined by what happened in the country of Narnia, requests for these tags can be for anywhere in that world at that time. These were taken from the Narnia wiki.
Age of Conquest: Birth of Narnia through right before White Witch seizes power
Age of Winter: White Witch’s reign
Golden Age: Pevensies’ reign
Dark Age: Narnia in anarchy
Telmarine Age: Telmarine conquest through right before Caspian X’s coronation
Age of Exploration: Caspian X’s reign
Later Ages: Rilian’s reign onwards
Post-Canon: set in Aslan’s afterlife country (or on Earth, if you also select Setting:Earth)

You can use these tags in conjunction with the Time Period tags if, for example, you want a story about Archenland during the Long Winter. Or you can use them alone if you want anything about these places, set at any time.
Archenland, Calormen, Telmar: stories set in these countries, at any time
Aslan’s Country: could be about things like Jill at the beginning of Silver Chair, or a post-Last Battle story
Eastern Sea: for stories about the territory explored in Voyage of the Dawn Treader and the creatures, concepts and people found there
Setting: Earth: stories set anywhere and at any time in our world
The Western Wild, Bism & Underground Realms, Ettinsmoor & Other Northern Lands: self-explanatory
Wood Between the Worlds: stories that use or explore this place

Alternate Universe - Everyone Lives/Nobody Dies: For stories that ignore large swaths of The Last Battle. Unlike the other tags in this group, this one encompasses a non-canonical Narnian time period after “Later Ages” as well as stories set in our world in which the Friends of Narnia didn't die.
Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence: For all canon divergences other than the ones encompassed by “Everyone Lives/Nobody Dies”
Alternate Universe - Different Setting: Characters have always existed in a different scenario (various historical eras, various professions, etc.)
Backstory: Could be for a character or concept, to be explained in the details/prompt
Setting: Earth: For fic set in our world

Mythical Beings & Creatures: about any of the beings mentioned (or not mentioned)

Do we have a setting tag for Bism and other underground realms? I think I recall there being such a tag in previous years.

I proposed a general non-Narnia places tag...

I have edited my tag nominations accordingly! (FYI, opening the form to edit it deletes all of one's previous nominations. Is that intentional or is it an AO3 glitch?)
