SEEDING ROUND #1: Best Platonic Friendship, Same-Gender VOTING IS CLOSED

I took the nominees from the spreadsheet and randomized the order. These 126 are about half; the other half will go in a thread tomorrow. Vote for as many as you like! I haven’t decided on a cut-off yet, but I’m thinking the top 32 or 48 will proceed from each thread.

Edit: The full list of nominees is here. If you don’t see one that you think should be included, nominate it in tomorrow’s thread.
