Ship List Part Three (Transcribed Below)

As part of the AO3 Ship Stats project, this list shows the 100 most-posted pairing tags on Archive Of Our Own in the period August 2016 - August 2017.

This list was created by comparison of current number of fics with data gathered for the 2016 AO3 Ship Stats.

There are 64 M/M pairings on the list, 18 F/M, 8 F/F, 6 Gen and 4 Other. (Please note that on AO3, ‘Name & Name’ indicates platonic relationships (Gen), while ‘Name/Name’ is used for romantic pairings.)

Of the 200 names on the list, 34 are women and 4 are characters of ambiguous gender, down from 34 and 7 in the 2016 list. 62 are POC, and 11 are racially ambiguous, compared with 49 and 15 last year.

For more information about the AO3 Ship Stats project, please check out the accompanying FAQs. You might also be interested in the All-Time Top 100 Pairings and the Femslash Top 100 list.
