* There are petitions on Change.Org to rename a nebula to "[[PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Madokami]]" and a newly discovered planet to "[[Series/DoctorWho Gallifrey]]". Some signatories cite the argument that "fiction is just new mythology, and plenty of stuff already has a mythological name", other signatories cite a wish to acknowledge and promote the show and/or its ideals, and still others are [[SeriousBusiness taking it too seriously]] or [[StealthParody not seriously at all]]. [[note]] "Book of Homu Homu?" Really? [[/note]].
