Community description:Tommy Joe Ratliff BigBang
Welcome to the TJR Big Bang! The purpose of this challenge is to bring together authors and artists to create a completed work of fic and art, featuring Tommy Joe Ratliff . Over the next months, authors will write a 5000(min) word fic, and artists will create art/videos/graphic/fanmixes to go with it. As long as Tommy is the focus of your work, everything else is fair game!

Rules, guidelines and other information modified from [community profile] lambliffbigbang and [profile] cockbertbigbang

The Rules:

Authors and artists will collaborate to produce works centered around Tommy and another person. Authors will write 5,000-word+ fic of any genre, and artists will create art to go along with it.

For Authors:
- Your fic must be at least 5,000 words long. It must be written specifically for the TJR Big Bang challenge and posted nowhere else prior to the start of posting dates. In the case of WIPs, which are allowed, 5,000 words must be written for the challenge, and the same rules apply.

- You may write more than one fic, so long as each is at least 5,000 words long.

- You may co-write a fic, however, in that case, your fic must be at least 7,500 words long.

-Tommy can be paired with a male or a female. Original male characters, original female characters, fictional characters, celebrities, athletes, etc are all allowed. The only exceptions to pairings are found in the following rule.

-Pairing Tommy with Adam will not be allowed for this challenge as there have already been Lambliff Big Bangs and we'd like to use this Big Bang to encourage rare pairings. (Of course Adam may appear in the fic as a friend or other character). The only exceptions to the pairing rule are as follows:
*If your fic has multiple pairings and one of them is A/T (i.e. love triangle - as long as Tommy doesn't end up with Adam in the end please.)
*If your fic mentions a previous relationship between these pairings
*If your fic features a threesome/moresome and these guys are involved

- Your fic must be betaed. There will be beta sign-ups, so in the event that you have difficulty finding one, you can choose from there.

- Your fic must have warnings, if applicable.

- There will be two author check-ins which are not mandatory, but recommended.

- There will be a rough-copy/summary deadline which is mandatory.

- All work should be submitted to

- Specifics will be addressed in subsequent posts.

For Artists:
- Your art may be any style of art, be it photoshop, painting, drawing, fanmixes, etc., in forms such as banners, dividers, icons, etc.

- You must submit at least one piece of artwork for the fic you claim.

- After claiming your fic, you must be in communication with your author.

- There will be a artist check-in which is not mandatory, but recommended.

- Your artwork must be completed by the author's posting date.

- There will be a limit of one artist per story, unless we have a surplus of artists.
