Thom (also written as T(h)om) was a fandom-created nickname for Tom Sloane, possibly derived from the name Thomas. At first a typo, the name was eventually used on some message boards to refer to the "Evil Tom" fanfic stereotype, and was incorporated into the fanfic of Canadibrit. It is not unusual now to see the phrase "Evil Thom" used to characterize a fanfic in which Tom Sloane is shown in a very negative light.
