Okay, so summaries ...

Right, I asked about titles and thank you all for the interesting PoVs about those, and now I'm interested in summaries. I always find the summaries really difficult and I am sure that many of mine are no where near as useful as they could be, so I'm interested in what people like and do not like to see.

The poll is just to encourage interaction, I would love to see comments as well since I am sure I have left many things off the poll.

[Edit: and when I say summary, I mean just the little bit that's supposed to give you a hint about the fic, not the whole fic header with warnings and the like :). I believe I may have not made that clear.]
