In search of a story title...

Asked by livelaughlove21 (15071 points ) December 4th, 2012

I’m writing a fiction story and I’m admittedly awful at coming up with titles for these types of things. I thought I’d get some help from the Fluther community.

It’s about a gay male couple that are finally together after a long bumpy road of finding their way to each other. The best friend of one of the guys dies in a car accident, and he has a hard time coping, resorting to drinking and isolation to numb the pain. His partner’s frustration grows as he tries to help, but to no avail. After a heated argument, he goes out to a bar, gets drunk, and ends up sleeping with someone else. It just so happens that this “someone else” is his ex, and the person that he cheated on his partner with years earlier. The rest of the story goes through their separation and eventual reunification, with all the angsty bits in between.

Now, I’m looking for something that calls upon history repeating itself OR betrayal OR a happy home being broken. This will not be published anywhere but the internet, so song titles are fair game.

“Of Course You’re Enough” / “This Is Enough” / “Enough”
“When We Were Fine”
“Headlights”
“Swerve”

Thanks everyone! Aside from the oh so clever joke responses, these were very helpful. :)

Let us know what you decide. :)

I decided on Friction a la @filmfann for this one, but I have something else in mind for Fatally Yours. I’m saving a few others for future projects as well. :)
