This community was made after icons100 to fill the gap for people that want to claim ships from tv shows and movies. It's in no way an original idea, but I thought it might be wanted.

*Community info and rules are adapted from icons100

In the most basic terms, this community is for icon makers to claim a relationship from a tv show or movie for a certain amount of time in order to meet the challenge of making 100 icons out of that relationship. The subjects you can claim here are relationships from a tv shows or movies. Are you up to making 100 icons of one relationship in only 10 weeks?

How it works:
01. Join the community You must be a member to participate.
02. Submit a claim for your subject of choice at this post and then wait to be approved.
03. Once approved, you will be given posting access and you may then begin to post icons of your subject.
04. You make 100 icons out of your subject following certain terms and themes. You don't have to do it all in one go...you may post them in small batches each time.
05. If you've completed the challenge successfully, comment at the Hall of Fame post to get listed. We'll also try to get a banner for you to hang up as you like. :D Your subject is then free for the taking again.

But as with all communities, there are some rules and fine details. Please read the following carefully. If you have any questions, you can ask here.

**R U L E S**

** The subject focus that's allowed in this community are relationships between characters in movies or TV. This means only the characters may be used. So while icons featuring Veronica/Logan from Veronica Mars are accepted, icons of Kristen Bell with Tom Cruise aren't. Because some relationships may not be canon, icons may include manipulation images, but it should be clear the icon is for the characters and not just actors. For more information on rules pertaining to the subjects, please refer to the subject claim post.

** Each subject may only be claimed by one person at any given time. You are allowed a span of 10 weeks to complete the 100 icons for your subject, though of course it'd be nice if you finish them sooner than that. :) This is done so that one person isn't just hogging a subject all the time without making the icons. To prevent "fake claims", you should post at least your first batch within the first 2 weeks of claiming a subject.

** Each person may claim up to two subjects at a time, but the subjects have to come from a different fandom. Additionally, you'll have the same amount of time to complete your icons. So if you've applied for 2 subjects at once, you will still have 10 weeks to complete 200 icons.

** All 100 icons must contain your subjects in them. That's the whole point isn't it? Your icon can include other characters as long as your subjects are in the icon as well. While this is allowed, I would recommend you to do it sparingly and to please remember to try and keep your icons focused on your subjects.

** You do not have to post 100 icons in one go. You can break them up into smaller batches...say about a minimum of 6 or more per post so that the community won't clog up everyone's friends pages with single icon posts. Please put your icons behind a cut! You are allowed to preview up to 3 icons outside of the cut. And before you ask, yes...you're allowed to do fake cuts if you wish- all I ask is that you state clearly that it's a fake cut.

** If your icon contains questionable rating content, please post a noticeable warning and place all of those icons behind a cut. You MUST do this! And while I know this should be pretty obvious, please no porn movies. :p

** Please make new icons for this challenge. It defeats the point and isn't much fun if you just dig out old icons you have of your subject and post them as part of your 100 icons. :p Also, while icon makers of all levels are welcome...please put effort into your icons. Don't just crop a picture and slap text on it. You're supposed to be devoted to your subject, so show it in your icons! :)

** Out of the 100 icons you make, part of the challenge is to make 50 of them following a particular set of themes. These themes are included down below and can be taken pretty much any way you like. You can use them as the text on your icon or you can use it purely as an abstract interpretation. For example, in the "red" theme, your icon can represent that theme in terms of the actual color of your icon...or if red reminds you of anger as in seeing red, your icon can show anger, etc. Be creative! :)

So basically, 50 of your icons are free choice, meaning you can do whatever you like with it as long as it pertains to your subject. And the other 50 has to follow a given set of themes to make it a bit more challenging. :) Note: You do not have to make your icons in the order of these themes. You can make them in any order but each theme can only be counted once. Don't make 5 icons of one theme and skip some other themes entirely.

Please know that these themes are included for extra fun and challenge. There's no theme police around here to determine if your icon qualifies under said theme. All in all, just have fun with them. :) (thanks to atomic_eyes for help with the themes.)

-- When posting your icons to the community, please do it in this format:

Subject: (Include the ship and the source of the ship. ie: Veronica/Logan from Veronica Mars)
Themes: (the themes that you are using in your icons, if any)
Additonal Notes: (like credits, disclaimers, your rules of usage if someone wants to use your icons, etc.)

And then your icons, of course. ;) It would also help greatly if you could include the batch number and/or how many icons you've completed so far. This just helps me and the members see how far you've progressed...and it's also easier on me when I sort them into the community archives.

Thats about it. If you have any further questions, ask those here.
