Welcome to the 2020 AO3 Ship Stats Top 100!

This list shows the 100 pairing tags with the most fanfics posted on Archive Of Our Own as of August 2 2020. There are 68 M/M pairings, 19 F/M, 3 F/F, 7 Gen and 3 Other. (Please note that on AO3, ‘Name & Name’ indicates platonic or familial ‘Gen’ relationships, while ‘Name/Name’ is used for romantic and sexual pairings.)

Of the 200 names on the list, 26 belong to women and 3 to characters of indeterminate gender, compared to 25 and 4 respectively in the 2019 list. There are 52 POC and 7 racially ambiguous characters, compared with 46 and 8 last year.
