Okay, so I'm having a mental/writers block. I can't think of a title for my new fic.

It mainly consits of Giratina, Shaymin, Uxie, Azelf, and Mesprit in the Reverse World(Like Platinum). Dialga and Palkia will be in there too, but they don't play such a big role.

If you could help me think of a title, I'd greatly apreciate it and give you full credit if I use your title.

What genre? I can't do titles without a genre. And is it a oneshot or chapterfic? I need a few more details, but I could certainly help you then.

Genre? I really don't know if you ask me. And it's a chapterfic.

Well, genre goes a long way towards what the title could be. If you're thinking a darker story, you could go with something like Twisted or Distorted, to emphasise the whole Torn World thing. (No, you can't have Torn, I already wrote that =D) Or you could go something a bit longer (I'm a big fan of one-word titles), like Battle on the Other Side or something, depending on what actually happens in the fic. Is there a battle on the other side?

Yeah, there is a battle on "the other side"

I really like those titles! They fit what I'm going for

I don't think anyone can really think of a good title with just the information you've given us. If your story's already partially written, you could try posting a draft and asking for comments on that. As it is now, no one can really help you if you don't have so much as details of the plot or even a genre.

Nevertheless, I feel like guessing at the plot and tone of your story, so here goes:

Happy, Fun Times in the Reverse World

or,

Ruthless, Bloody Mayhem in the Reverse World

*headdesk*

Anyway, how about Dark Fate? Or even, um, Tipping the Balance? On a similar note, why not A Delicate Equation?

If I'm overloading you with these, please do tell. It's just that I love thinking up titles.

Oops. *stops piling titles on ~Hikari~* Right, sorry. At least, this may help you get over your writer's block. Some of the titles you don't use could even be adapted into chapter titles.

Hmm. You're very smart I wrote down all the titles and crossed each one out when I landed on the number "6"

Ex.
Dark Fate-1
Tipping the Balance-2
A Delicate Equation-3
Twisted-4
Distorted-5
Battle on The Other Side-6

Dark Fate-1
Tipping the Balance-2
A Delicate Equation-3
Twisted-4
Distorted-5

Tipping the Balance-1-5
A Delicate Equation-2-6
Twisted-3
Distorted-4

And so on.

And I ended with "Tipping the Balance"

Thanks. As are you, for coming up with the idea to use that old counting game to work out the title.
