Title Challenge

This month a crack team of fanfic readers were asked to provide titles of stories they'd like to read, and this is what they came up with.

Your challenge is this:
Choose one of the titles provided below, and write a fic that makes sense of the title. Any genre, any word count/length, but the title should fit the story you craft to go with it.

You may not change the wording of the title in any way (except in the cases of []s indicating you should choose one or the other word).

More than one author may use the same title
