Hi! I hope you don't mind if I ask some questions.

When you say "isn't a fandom with over 20,000 fics available," what kind of fic are you talking about? Do you mean "any kind of fic at all," or do you refer just to some specific types? For instance, do fics with less than 1,000 words count towards the 20,000 total? What about WIPs? And non-English fics? Do those count towards the 20k total as well?

Using Final Fantasy VII as an example, it certainly won't count as a medium sized fandom if you take the total amount of fics currently available at FF.net, which is 35,156 as of now. However, if you only count complete fics in English with 1,000 or more words, the total amount of FF VII stories that fit this criteria at FF.net is only 11,065 right now, which would made this fandom eligible for your exchange unless someone finds 9,000 different fics hosted elsewhere.

I swear I'm not trying to be difficult or nitpicky. I'm just asking these questions because I want to fully understand your criteria for fandom eligibility, so I can think of my nominations ahead of time and invite my friends to do the same. :-)

Personally, I'm crossing my fingers that you'll stick with the simplest criteria possible, i. e., drawing the line at 20,000 fics, regardless of their language, completion status or word count. But obviously I'll respect whatever you decide. :-) I'm just really curious and excited about this new exchange!
