Look at your most recent 20 fanwork titles and answer the questions.

1. How many are you happy with?
One of them came from another fic, so doesn't count (You, Me, Red Wine, and the Edinburgh Night Sky). But of the remaining 19, I'm happy with 12 (which is a pretty good ratio):
Teatime Stories
Baby, Baby (Between You and Me)
Banned Books
More Trouble Than They're Worth
Willing to Walk Away
Runaway Colleague
The Thing's the Play
But for the Grace
Strictly Romance
The Time Lady and the Lamp
Love Me, Love Me Not
Bloomin' Aliens

2. How many are... not great?
Giselle's Honeymoon I really struggled for a title for and then pretty much gave up. It really wanted a Rocky-style title and it turns out that that's really hard.

3. How many did you scramble for at the last minute?
Amazingly, the answer is not all of them! But the last 20 go back three years so I don't remember how many. It's probably all of the ones not listed in the next question, though.

4. How many did you know before you started writing/creating, or near the beginning?
This is unusual for me. But it's two!
Baby, Baby (Between You and Me)
Strictly Romance

5. How many are quotes from songs or poems?
Just one, Bed of Roses.

6. How many are other quotes?
A whole lot - or at least variations on quotes:
Banned Books
More Trouble Than They're Worth
Willing to Walk Away
The Thing's The Play
But For the Grace
A Last Supper
The Time Lady and the Lamp
Love Me, Love Me Not

7. Which best reflects the plot of the story/content of the fanwork?
Giselle's Honeymoon does what it says on the tin. As does Ghost in the Bathroom. Baby, Baby (Between You and Me) is reflects the plot and how it was remixed. Strictly Romance is a romance set during a time when one half of the couple is on Strictly Come Dancing.

8. Which best reflects the theme of the story/fanwork?
Memories of Home tells you it's nostalgic. I think that's the only one, really, it's hard to tell.

9. Which best reflects the character voice of the story/POV of the fanwork?
I think Bloomin' Aliens gives you a clue that it's Gita.

10. Which is your favourite?
Baby, Baby (Between You and Me). I did think 'If I do the remix like this I can use this title' because it was just so good. Second favourite is Strictly Romance.
