Kinda need some input on this. I kinda, eh, want a planned story to have a very boring title.

Obviously, this is going to be very subjective, but... yeah, what do you think is a boring, bland title?

Not quite what I'm looking for, sounds more like a memey (if that's a word) kind of story.

Paper
Cardboard
Soap
Ham
Dinner Roll
Box

“X verbs Y”. The most bring, generic title format on the entire site, yet a very popular one for oneshot feature bait or clickbait stories. I don’t think I’ve ever read a single “X verbs Y” story that left a lasting impression on me.

I took the index file from the latest Fimfarchive, extracted all the fic titles, then performed a sort + deduplication + count to get the number of occurrences of each title.

Do you count Twilight Verbs Article Nouns? :rainbowwild:

Actually though, I think my favourite "X verbs Y" story is Skywriter's Princess Celestia Hates Tea.
