My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic has over 50,000 stories on
It is hard to get an accurate count based on the website but here is the article on their two year anniversary where they state the number:

Yeah, and it seems to just be the FiM continuity, and some Equestria Girls. So older My Little Pony stuff would definitely not be a megafandon but probably also to small for this exchange. What I don't know is how many fics there are Equestria Girls and whether you guys consider it distinct enough from Friendship is Magic.

Can we nominate smaller parts of a larger franchise? As an example, can we nominate Star Wars cartoons, which I haven’t checked but would guess are usually smaller fandoms than the movies, or do they not count because they are part of the same franchise?

Supergirl (TV 2015) -
The Flash (TV 2014) -
X-Men (Movieverse)-
It's still under when split between Alternate Timeline Movies and Original Timeline Movies

Final Fantasy XV is still under, but only by about thirty stories.

Would The Silmarillion (and other Histories of Middle-Earth) be eligible? LOTR, The Hobbit and Tolkien are all on the mega-fandoms list (although Tolkien includes fics from all three of these plus the movies so I’m not sure if it should count separately.) The Silmarillion has around eleven thousand fics on ao3, which is a few thousand less than LOTR and a lot less than The Hobbit. The Silmarillion has been eligible for Yuletide although it has grown since then, and while it is still growing it is a realitvly small section of Tolkien fandom as a whole.What do you think?
