Any advice on choosing titles for fics? 😊
I’m not sure I’m the best person to ask because I tend to just go for the best pun I can come up with :) I will tell you some things I try to do, just for myself:
keep it short - I want people to be able to remember it and tell other people about it and if it’s too long that just makes it difficult
keep it related to the story - either a major plot point or something related to the setting or the overall emotional arc.
have fun with it - my best ever fic title and one that I’ll never top was “Idea So Meta, Even The Acronym” (ISMETA) :)
Remember, people judge books by covers and the title of your fic is the closest thing to a cover that AO3 has.If your average reader doesn’t “get it” they might just skip your fic entirely.
Unless of course you have a good summary :D
