Title Flailing! (yes, again)  
It's done: Bound By Love, as suggested by missyjack. Thanks, love! :)

it's a little long, but the first thing that sprang into my head was:
"Love works in devious ways"

take it or leave it :D

I think I like "By Design". But let me think about it some more. Last one sounds too long to me. Only "Invisible Threads" would work better for me.

But let me think on it some more.

The Pygmalion Effect, Formed/Creation, somebody about Snaker Charmers, something along the lines of Flaw in the Design, something along the lines of Best Laid Plans or Full Circle, God, I so suck at these.

Everyone's suggestions would reflect their interpretation of the fic... and because I loved it so much, I thought of something like "Flawless Manipulation" or something along the lines of manipulation that seems perfect... I don't know though... hehe

Obviously, the manipulation isn't perfect, but to me, it is!

Maybe "Back Fired" or something? I suck at titles, hence me stealing mine from song titles!!

*looks through song titles*

Dearest Helpless (silverchair)
Beg For Me (Korn)
Predictable (Korn)
Reclaim My Place (Korn)

I'm too lazy/tired/in a hurry to go to work to think of anything more or better!!

:D That part sure worked for Lincoln. Up to a point...

Thanks for the ideas. I have my title now, but I think "Beg For Me" should go in my future file. That has potential!

Thanks again. :)

I know you asked my opinion, dear, but truly I am HORRID with titles, which is why all of mine are usually ganked from somewhere else. I have to say none of the ones suggested really dart out and grab me....which I realize is no help at all.

Is "Tease" a bad title? Or is it all just *flails in the sea of nothingness*?

I have SUCH an easier time titling other people's fics. And I used to find it easy to title my own. But over time, the more of them there are the harder it becomes! :(
poisontaster on July 21st, 2006 12:27 am (UTC)
No, Tease is fine. *pets* Of them all, I like that one best.

I have a horrible time titling anyones fics including my own. But I know it when I hear it.

I like Devious, but it puts a negative spin on the story before it starts; and to me it wasn't a negative piece.
Ah, now this is an important point. I do like to capture the mood of the piece without telegraphing the whole thing, as one might say.

Gah! I hate it when I struggle with this! Sweet dreams. :)

"By Design" is a little more original than "Ensnared", and to me, it works better, Michael is the one ensnared but the fic is about Lincoln, so that doesn't make as much sense to me.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: PB slashhalfshellvenus on July 21st, 2006 05:09 am (UTC)
Another valid point-- needing to cover both aspects of the story if possible.

I'm going with missyjack's "Bound By Love." That winds up catching the mutual entanglement at the end AND the way in which everything begins.

Thanks for the input. :)

Tosses out a couple more suggestions:

Attachment theory
Chained
Bound by Love
Reward system
Family values

cheers.
The Good, The Bad and The Lanathelana on July 21st, 2006 04:06 am (UTC)
Oh, I'm really liking Attachement Theory and Reward System. And Family Values of course would be all kinds of twisted dark for it (but maybe a bit too simple).

Thanks I surprised myself by coming up with those - usually I'm Ms Bleeding Obvious when it comes to titles. And why is it so much more fun to think of titles for someone else's fic? ;)

Hah, halfshell is just the same. She is genius at naming other people's fic.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Venushalfshellvenus on July 21st, 2006 05:11 am (UTC)
I'm going with "Bound By Love."

That one covers the story fully as it begins, evolves and ends even though the binding becomes mutual by the end.

Thanks, missyjack! *relief at last*

Ah, the snoopy dance! It transcends generations and countries. :D

Thanks again!

Ooo, you have some good suggests. "Reward System" is so sad but true to the story.

Of those you list, I like By Design 'cause it doesn't give anything away (as noted above).
