ELLA Hey, so... does anyone have a good name for a multi-chapter werewolf AU that they are looking to re-home?


Signed,


A fic author with 3,000 words but no title


SOUND: NEW POST SOUND

ELLA

Edited to add: I'm not calling it "Bad Moon Rising," ACunningPlan.


SOUND: TYPING. A MOUSE CLICK. PRIVATE MESSAGE SENT NOISE.

KATE

Hey, I'm insulted. My first suggestion was obviously going to be "Hungry Like the Wolf."


SOUND: PM SENT NOISE


KATE

No wait, I've got it: "Howlin' for You."


SOUND: PM SENT NOISE

KATE

Okay, okay. For real this time. "Werewolves of London"... wait for it... Ontario.


SOUND: PM RECEIVED NOISE

ELLA

I want you to know I'm laughing, but I am so mad about it.


SOUND PM SENT NOISE


KATE

I live to serve.

(BEAT)

How about "A Canadian Werewolf in Canada?"


SOUND: PM RECEIVED NOISE

ELLA

I was going to ask why you didn't use their home provinces, but, ah, you're right. A Saskatchewonian Werewolf in British Columbia is too much.

...is it Saskatch-a-won-ian or Saskatch-a-wane-ian? I think I've seen both?


SOUND: PM SENT NOISE

KATE

I always preferred Saskatchewaner, but it probably doesn't work here.


By the way, I just finished Googling "list of songs with 'moon' in the title" and I think you're really going to like the fine range of options I now have for you.


SOUND: PM RECEIVED NOISE

ELLA

I want to make fun, but given that I spent the last 15 minutes reading the moon's Wikipedia page, I feel I may have lost the high ground here.


SOUND: PM SENT NOISE

KATE

(LAUGHS)

Okay, kind of relieved I'm not the only person who did that. Side note: is the extraterrestrial real estate page not the best thing ever? Also a great future band name.


SOUND: PM RECEIVED NOISE


ELLA

Hm, do you think I could get away with putting 'Werewolf Thing' in the title bar? I think that sounds compelling.


SOUND: PM SENT NOISE

KATE

Oh shit I forgot to suggest "Clap for the Wolfman." Every Baby Boomer in Canada is so mad at me right now.


...not to go back to square one, but are you totally sure about that no Duran Duran stance? Because some of the other lyrics in that song are kinda cool. And I won't tell anyone where they came from.


SOUND: PM RECEIVED NOISE

ELLA

Oh no, you just gave me a truly terrible idea.

ACunningPlan, you didn't technically suggest this earlier, but it's still your fault. So I guess this fic is dedicated to you.


On The Rise, chapter one...
