Cool ***** I want my title please! *****

So yeah, I've written 8 chapters now, and its getting kind of ridiculous without a title.

It's better if you come up with your own title :). Not only will it mean more to you that way but if you fic already has main plot point or theme it should be easy :)

Trust me, I have had trouble sleeping coming up with a title.

Maybe something like A Burning Hope but I didn't want something that was such a cliche. I was hoping this thread would give me a jumping off point, just ideas for a title that I could make my own.

Maybe "Gettin' Down With The Dogs!" or something like that?

I just thought you might want a catchy or slightly humorous title...

Do you like it?

I don't think a humorous title would go very well with this story, it isn't really a comedy.

Hmm.. I can't really think of anything, dude.. I mean, you said you're not going for the trainer fic aspect, so if I knew what you were trying to accomplish, it might be easier..

Well, I just wanted a story of a boy who befriends a Growlithe, and in the process grows a little. Like him finding out the mystery behind his fathers death or somethin'. Was that any help?

If you say that you befriend a growlithe and...something about death, then I thought up a title for that: how 'bout Growlithe's Friendship Adventure? Or...I don't know...The amazing bond between amazing wanderers? (sorry that one was a bit long maybe A partner mystery? Or Investigation as friends? I'm not 100% good at making up titles and will read your story soon I promise

Eeek! Don't use any of those titles. Not to be rude but they are...not..good.
I love making titles, they come very easy to me... Going on just the idea of a fire dog pokemon and knowing nothing about the plot:

A Growing Flame

Flame's Tooth

I'm Told That Loyality Burns
(I love this one, it sound's like a classic novel)

The Full Moons' Fire

A Paw Full of Night

To Ride A Firespin

Please credit me if you use any of them :) If none of them fit I can try again :3

l0l i know just how you feel, i cannot come up w/ a title to save my life l0l
ummm... i would say go w/ Orange Flaffy's idea [im told that loyalty burns] that one kinda catches your attention and its really thought out and fits the concept of a Growlithe's friendship!

I really like OF's I'm Told That Loyality Burns, it really does fit in with the plot.

Well, my thread for the story is dead anyway, but I may post it again, and if I do I'll use that title.

Btw, I think it would be a good idea to make a sticky thread were people could get help on titles (It would have helped me), some of the stories on this forum don't have the greatest titles

Oh, I don't know. . .

Twilight of Flame?
Scorched Secrets?
Flares of Oddity?

Defiantly aren't that good compared to what OF came up with. I mean, "I'm Told That Loyalty Burns?" That about as original and cool-sounding as physically possible.

And I do agree we should have a sticky where people can post if they need help coming up with titles. That'd just be a terrificly swell idea. :)
