There are two ways you can make your noms approval go faster:
-Disambiguate for me so that I don't have to. This is especially helpful on things like anything connected to comics, Star Wars, Game of Thrones/Song of Ice and Fire, anything with multiple versions, any RPF, characters with short, common names. If you can think of how it could show up in another fandom then disambiguating is helpful.
-Provide info if it is a rarer fandom especially if it doesn't have it's own wiki in English, a comprehensive wikipedia page, a good characters section on TVtropes, or a good characters list on imdb.

Chronicles of Narnia (Movies)
Unless you truly want all the movies (1979, 1988, 2005) specify in your nomination.

Final Fantasy VII
Cloud, Barret, Aerith, Vincent, and Tifa had to be rejected due to an AO3 issue with renaming. I have manually added them in. If you are nominating this characters under any other fandom make sure you disambiguate so AO3 doesn't auto reject them.

Silent Hill (Video Game Series)
Rose Da Silva is only a movie character.  Would you prefer All Media Types?

For Chinese Mythology, Ch'ing-nü | Qing Nü is an (admittedly obscure) goddess of frost and snow. She's pretty much impossible to google, what with there being no agreed upon translation of her title (seriously - translators seem to pick one of dark, blue, green, grey or fortunate and one of maid, lady, girl, woman or goddess, and every single translator picks a different pair). But you can find references to her below:
Poem by Du Fu, scroll down fro Autumn Fields No. 4, and accompanying note.
Yang Yi's poem on the peach tree, and accompanying description in The Literary Works of Ou-yang Hsui (1007-72) by Ronald C. Egan
Wucai cup inscribed with a poem by Luoyin
Poem by Hanshan, scroll down for No. 115 and accompanying note.
Poem by Qian Qianyi

Liáo zhāi zhì yì | Strange Tales from a Chinese Studio - Pú Sōnglíng is exactly the same nomination as last year, so I assume there's nothing else I need to say about it? Unless the desired formatting has changed this year?

Youth on Horseback - Anton Pieck is a piece of artwork, which can be found here.

I promise my other three nominations are not at all obscure, and indeed are already approved! (In my defense, other people have not only written for Strange Tales, but even occasionally requested it, so it's not quite a fandom of one anymore.)

Is this also the place to mention Tag Set corrections? I see Youth on Horseback - Anton Pieck (here) has gone walkabout - I found it in Books & Literature, rather than Other Media.

I can't believe there are almost 900 nominations! Thank you so much for all the work you must be putting in to this.
