Titles ...

Now I know I've asked about titles before, but I'm curious again :). I just read a fic and I could see no discernible connection between the title and the fic; they honestly appeared to have nothing to do with each other. Which got me thinking (often a bad thing ::g::).

Writers: How do you come up with titles? (I have a poll for this one)

Poll #1615560 Titles again

Writers, how do you come up with a title?

Pick something out of the air
5(8.9%)
Use lyrics
6(10.7%)
Use classical references
2(3.6%)
Use something from the fic
24(42.9%)
Other/combination (feel free to elaborate in comments)
19(33.9%)


Readers: How do you expect titles to relate to the fic? (sorry, no poll for this because I thought it was too wide a scope ::g::).
