Title woes redux

I renamed Hilda. She's now Coral, which is so much better for her character. Also, she doesn't come across as an instant frump.

I can't figure out the title, though. Thanks to everyone who made suggestions, particularly the suggestion that maybe not everyone will instantly figure out that by "drake" I mean "little dragon." Yeah. Like, maybe most people think "duck."

I'm tempted to just go with Justice as the title, but that's not terribly descriptive, so then I think (inevitably) that maybe Blue Justice might be better, which it really, really isn't. It sounds like a Tick episode, actually. So then I think, well, maybe I should try one of those newfangled poetic quotations, which requires a trip to Barlett's Familiar Quotations, which is downstairs, ...and I end up with such miseries as Wild Justice and Virtue of the Soul. And after flipping idly through the book, I am now ready to go right back to Justice. Or just call it The Mighty Novella, which at least amuses me.

UPDATE: The Price of Justice. Yay!!

Honestly, terrible pun or no, it almost works. Or maybe I'm just getting desperate. :)

Drakes are dragons? Oh, that changes everything.

;) (you caught my sarcasm, I hope)

K.C. Shaw said...

MY drakes are dragons. Little ones. Everyone else can have those boring old ducks.

Hey K.C.!

Glad I could help out with the title!
