View Full Version : The Title Game

This thread is inspired in part by the first sentence thread.

Rules: Give a short plot description/summary for a story idea, then wait for the titles to roll in. This isn't so members can get their work named, but more a fun excerise for our creative brains to enjoy.


I'll start us off: Magical beasts and beings were real in Earth distant past, and this is the basis of all our myths about them. When Archeologist Eve Marrina finds the first known skeleton of an Elf, she must protect it from the government, religious nuts, and other scientists. Because it just may be the key to saving the world as she knows it from destruction.

I'd call it 'Prima Materia' and add in more than just elves and include the formation of the universe and reality...Though that's probably taking it way beyond its intended scope.

I hope the OP doesn't mind if I switch to the a possible premise that someone can title...

An airborne virus has spread across the globe that kills off the adult population, leaving the juvenile population alone in the chaos. In the small town in the mid-west, sixteen-year old Rob Gardiner, a farmer and an older brother, is forced to step up to the plate to give his siblings and loved ones a chance to make it through the epidemic. Yet with the growing issues popping up in the small time can they, along side the human race actually survive.

'My Brother's Keeper' or 'The Mark of Cain' -- was going for something that would both invert and insinuate what it means to be an older brother.

A lot of good suggestions already, but what about "The Meek Shall Inherit"? Or "Growing Pains"?

What about this premise: A girl is traded to the devil and has now been trained to be the perfect demon. But on a mission, she encounters a human whose difficulties in life resonate with her own. She screws up the mission, which kicks off a series of events where she has to decide if it's worth putting her own demonly life on the line to save the puny human.

Vampires are real. For hundreds of years the two species of vampires have been at war with each other.

Emery has grown up knowing there's no way to change this. When at a neutral gathering she meets Maria, the daughter of the other sides leader, she is swept up in something bigger than herself and bigger than the war. Will they be able to survive or will the hate between the two sides lead to the deaths of these two young women?

Elves are not the tall innocent yet somehow deadly creatures of fantasy series the world over, nor the small occassionally evil creatures of lore as Jane is about to find out. To maintain their immortality once mature an elf must drink the blood of a human every decade, and one has chosen her as it's next target.

What if aliens really were living among us in secret?

It was something that never occured to Irene. Why would it? Everyone knew that even if aliens existed, they weren't interested in Earth let alone living here in secret. But when one of her classmates reveals herself to Irene asking for help saving her people, she has to confront all she knew about the universe. With her world turned upside down, she walks a fine line. Loyalty to her planet and the government hunting her new friends people, or to the person who trusted her with one of the greatest secrets the world has ever known.

On top of all this, Irene just wants to get through highschool her sanity mostly intact, and maybe eventually get a girlfriend.

There's no words to describe what it feels like to watch your people die a slow and painful death. When she hears a rumor of a cure for the disease plaguing her people is in the human world, Acantha and her lover Selene sneak out of the enclave to find it. But some of their fellow vampires would rather die than take help from the human world, and will do anything to stop them.
