Found: SPN Fic Title  
UPDATE: Looks like I'm going with #4! But we'll have to wait for the story until later this weekend, because... camping! :0

Also, hoping for some language help from ivy_x3 on a small detail.

Thanks, everyone! :D

Helloooo f-list!

I have an upcoming SPN fic for the spn_50states challenge. It is set in Montana, and features Dean with a case of amnesia and Sam stuck in the role of stranger. Light Wincest. Some humor, some angst.

I'm weighing various titles for it, and this is where the voting (that means YOU) comes in:

1) Once Was Lost (I like this one a lot, partly because of its simplicity and relevance.)
2) Big Sky, Broken Spirit (good, or hokey? That's the question.)
3) Hunting The History Of Ourselves (catchy, but maybe kind of cold?)

4) Lost In The Sea Of Sky (poetic, theme-related, hints at Montana. But... too vague?)

Thoughts? Better ideas? *throws self on the floor in plea for perspective*

Thanks!

Annnnnd... U R F1R5T A6A1N!

I like #1 too, I just want to make sure I'm not nuts. It beats the original title of "Unattainable" (for 60_minute_fics). :0

I like 1 too.

I kinda like 3 as well, but it sounds too long. Like I would pick either only Hunting Our History or History of Ourselves.

I like No.1, but I love the poetic feel of No.4. *is no help*

Can't wait to read it! :)

1) is very pretty, but it is a lyric from "Amazing Grace". Are you looking for it to reference that?

I like 4) because of the amnesia/"lost" connection. But really, anything you choose will be great! :)

Not per se, although a title's familiarity is sometimes a good thing. Or not, as poison_taster pointed out.

Looks like it's down to 1 and 4, and leaning toward 4 now. *wibble-wobble-wibble-wobble*

I really like 1&4, so if your preference is 1 then I think that's what you should use.
poisontaster on July 14th, 2006 03:30 pm (UTC)
I'm partial to four. I like it's lyricism and it doesn't have an immediate association for me like one does. The moment I saw 1 I had Amazing Grace in my head (and gee, thanks for THAT btw!)

:D Sorry! Has to be better than Kung F* Fi***ting. ;)

Oh, I'm too mean. OK, here's a better head-filler: "Don't Fear The Reaper" :D

I vote for #1 and you know you want that one anyway.

...I liked #1 a lot until I saw #4, and then I went oooh. The first one IS very nice, but. The last one is perfect. I like simple titles, but I tend to go for the poetic ones and that's just... lovely. Really, really lovely. It's a title that I would click on without any idea of what it was about, already knowing that I wanted to read the story.
