The Nursery Files Acronym Key

Most of these acronyms correspond to genre lists, though some are doubled up: NNC fics are on the non-canon kids page, MoD and SOM fics will be found on the Children With Others list etc.

A few of the genres have been renamed to make them less confusing.

Oh, and while not by any means exclusively a babyfic term, "AU" means Alternate Universe - fics that differ significantly from canon. These stories often break from canon after episode ___, or aren't intended to follow canon at all.

Look for this symbol to mark our new fics added to the archive
