This is something I've been wanting to post for awhile now, just hadn't gotten around to it. It's time to start.

This is not, by any stretch, a complete list. I hope to add to it over time. I hope that you, fellow Nuumnuts, will help me add to its final form. It will also not, for the time being, contain references in Serial Order. I will simply add to the list as I can. Perhaps someday when the list begins filling up, I will use the data contained here to start a new page on the wiki, replete with links and so forth. For now, though, think of this more like a salon.
