    Adoptable thread titles!
    #1
    Jenny had the idea in the cbox so here it is!

    We all know the struggle of finding a thread title, so hopefully this will help us all out! I often listen to songs and go like "This would make a great title" except it wouldn't really work out for any of my people unless they get kidnapped by tutu wearing bears.

    Post titles here and if you're feeling nice maybe include a description of what threads they'll work best since "Shake What Your Mama Gave You" probably wouldn't work for a super adorable thread where two firsties work on a potions assignment.

    I'm gonna start by adding some of the names from my favourite tracks from 8tracks:
    • The Tales From The Woods - could work for something taking place in the forest?

      And So It Begins - about a super secret plot beginning?

      I Wanna Be Loved By You - idk a shippy thread?

      I'm In The Mood For Love - another shippy title?

      Goodbye England - a thread where your character is leaving England?

      She is of the Heavens - where a female character dies?

    • Burn baby burn- couldn't bring myself to use it in the fire XD

      It's hard to dance with the devil on your back- for a ball thread?

      Love is not a victory march- sad confession or something like that

      Just forget the world- romantic/ironic amnesia

      And the walls kept tumbling down- sh*t hits the fan

      And we start a fire, and we shut it down- IDEK

      Mama raised me good, mama raised me right- Ditto

      Every night has it's dawn

      Money is the anthem of success

    This is your song - love sort of thing that involves music?
    my gift is my song - same as above?
    come what may - love declarations? I don't know
    Why does my heart cry - jealousy, heartbreak, betrayal stuff
    all you need is love - slum lovin'

    I may or not be watching Moulin Rouge and getting feelsy.

    I HAVE PRODUCTIVE ONES:

    And No One's Getting Fat Except Mama [Insert First Name Here] - insensitive preggo thread maybe?

    Let Me In Your Heart Again - someone's asking for forgiveness? Of the romantic kind probably.

    I'll Win Your Heart with a Wit Woo - Stalkey person trying to win a person's heart? Not stalkey person trying to win a person's heart?

    Love is Easy - for people in love?

    I have no more at the moment.
