Weekend Challenge: Crazy Titles

Hey everyone, it's almost the weekend! Time to get onto this week's challenge!

This time around I have searched out some of the strange and unusual book, song and album titles that are floating around out in the world wide web (and yes, all of these are real titles!). I tried to choose ones that I thought could possibly suggest a story, but forgive me if some of them just appealed to my wicked sense of humour!

I have split them into five categories:

Suggestive Stories (20)
Sounds Like Trouble (20)
Who Are These People? (16)
Instruction Manuals (16)
If Only I'd Asked (16)

The bracketed figures show how many titles there are in that category. You can either ask for one (or more) at random, or give me a number up to 20 or 16 in the appropriate category and I will give you a title to play with.

Your job is to create a story of at least 300 words or make a banner/set of 3+ icons to illustrate that title. Any fandom, any genre, any characters/pairings. Take a suggestive title and make it as innocent as you like, or take one of the most innocuous titles and make it raunchy, or anything else you like; that I leave up to you!

Just show me what you've done before midnight Sunday in your local time, and I will either make you an icon, write you a drabble or add 100 words to a WIP in your honour!

Now, ready, set, go - ask and you shall receive! It's my bedtime now, but I'll be back in the morning to allot you your titles! ;-)
