So some of us love Marvel. As in all of Marvel. As in the old animated cartoons, the old or new comics runs, the big events, the compilation books, the book adaptations, the movies for both X-Men and Avengers, the TV shows on Netflix or for Marvel Cinematic Universe, or X-Men: Evolution, or, or, or...
Some of us love Marvel.

About Marvel is Marvel Gift Exchange (MarvelIsMarvel)
The idea here is to organize a gift exchange designed for Marvel and it's 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.
Minimum Requirements — This is a gift exchange where you sign up to give and receive one of the following:
• 1 fanfic of at least 1,000 words
• 1 piece of drawn artwork of at least 500 x 500 pixels
• 1 piece of graphic artwork of at least 500 x 500 pixels
Fanfic must contain one of the recipient's requested characters or teams if genfic or one of the recipient's requested pairings if shipfic. It must contain none of the recipient's requested DNWs (do not wants).
Drawn art must be an original piece created entirely by the artist and also contain one of the recipient's requested characters or teams if genfic or one of the recipient's requested pairings if shipfic. It must contain none of the recipient's requested DNWs (do not wants).
The piece must be clearly finished, well defined and detailed lineart or else basic colors or monochromatic tones. No rough sketches and no lined paper. Art may be digitally or traditionally drawn.
Graphic art must be an original piece created entirely by the artist or a transformative piece, noticeably and creatively differentiated from any base photos or screencaps.
Graphic art must also contain one of the recipient's requested characters or teams if genfic or one of the recipient's requested pairings if shipfic. It must contain none of the recipient's requested DNWs (do not wants).
Marvel canon is rich and varied and overlaps in the parts that we actual want to read about, a side effect of long runs, comics events and crossovers, and the many adaptations and timelines in the multiverse.
Nominating a TV Series/Cartoon:
Please disambiguate TV shows, anime, and cartoons, e.g. Wolverine (Anime), Avengers Assemble (TV), Guardians of the Galaxy (TV), Black Panther (TV), Wolverine: Origin (Marvel Knights) etc.
For direct to video titles, please disambiguate with year, e.g. Planet Hulk (2010).
Nominating a Book:
You may nominate a collection/omnibus or a series of collections/omnibuses. If the collection contains a specific run, then the moderator may change the fandom tag to the standard run title and series number.
Nominating a Comics Run:
If a run shares a name with another run, then please disambiguate, e.g. X-Force (2nd Series). If you don't know the series number, you may use publication year(s) or author/artist. Uncanny X-Men has a helpful and very large listing of Marvel comics by run.
If there is a subtitle, please include it, e.g. Spider-Man Noir: Eyes without a Face.
Nominating Overlapping Fandoms:
Fandom nominations are allowed to overlap. A timeline will frequently contain several runs or movies, etc.
You may nominate a crossover event, e.g. Messiah Complex, Age of Apocalypse, Age of Ultron, etc.
Marvel Noir (Earth-90214) contains several runs. You may nominate the entire timeline or a particular run.You may nominate all related runs within a timeline.
Acceptable nominations include:
- Marvel Noir
- Daredevil Noir
- X-Men Noir
- Spider-Man Noir
- Spider-Man Noir: Eyes without a Face
- Spider-Man Comics (Noir)
Marvel (Movies) is the canonical fandom tag containing Marvel Cinematic Universe (Earth-199999) and X-Men (Movieverse) (Earth-10005 | Earth-TRN414), as well as the various TV properties.
Note: X-Men (Movies) refers specifically to the original trilogy and does not include Days of Future Past, First Class, Wolverine, etc.
You may nominate any of these umbrella fandoms, a specific series of movies, or a specific movie or show. You may also nominate any closely related subfandoms within a timeline.
Acceptable nominations include:
- Marvel Cinematic Universe
- Thor (Movies)
- Thor: The Dark World
- X-Men (Movies)

- Agent Carter (TV)
- Agent Carter (Marvel Short Film)

- X-Men: Days of Future Past
- Marvel 10005
- Marvel TRN414
If a timeline number is perfectly synonymous within a canonical fandom tag, e.g. Marvel 90214 is synonymous with Marvel Noir, the moderator will standardize to the canonical fandom tag. If a timeline is not perfectly synonymous, e.g. X-Men (Movieverse) contains both Earth-10005 (before Days of Future Past) and Earth-TRN414 (after Days of Future Past), then a timeline by Earth number is an acceptable nomination.
This field is for nominating pairings and/or teams/groups. You may nominate up to six.
For example, for the fandom Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), you may designate Avengers Team - Original or Avengers Team - Final.
You may optionally specify lineup, as above, or nominate any lineup for the team by choosing any. In sign ups, you can specify further details on who you want to see included in your fic.
