I'm not positive that I'll play, but I'm leaning toward it. How about you? In "large" fandoms, a woman character is eligible if she appears in under 20% of the fanfiction. (Tessa Noel, btw, is tagged in under 2% — yep, two; that's not a typo — of the HL fanfic on AO3. I feel that Tessa epitomizes the "rare" woman character.)
If I do play, of course I will personally nominate Forever Knight (likely Janette, Urs, Tracy, Fleur; maybe Grace or Emily), Highlander (likely Tessa, Randi, Angie; maybe Michelle or Grace) and Young Blades (surely Jacqueline and Queen Anne; maybe Liana). I've toyed with the notion of perhaps also nominating the original Battlestar Galactica and/or the animated Dungeons and Dragons. I don't have time to review all the lengthy canon of Doctor Quinn, Medicine Woman, Rurouni Kenshin or Deep Space 9, so I won't be raising them. (I would normally include Buffy the Vampire Slayer among things I can write in a multi-fandom event, because it makes matching easier for the mod, but I'll skip it this time; I feel incompetent with the rare characters there.)
At this time, gehayi has nominated FK, and karrenia_rune has nominated HL. None of the other fandoms in which I write are yet nominated, but it is awfully reassuring to see both FK and HL in the mix this early.
Addendum: See the masterlist for the ongoing compilation of nominated fandoms and characters.
