Eeeps! Arnav and Khushi being all cute and adorable! Me like!! Was this the first time Khushi used her trademark "Hawww!" in this story? Lol, come to think of it, I think this is the first time she used her 'Hawww!' in here...I guess up until now I didn't reckon Khushi comfortable enough with Arnav's advances to do it - but now that she's told him she loves him, why hold back? Super pleased you're liking the cuteness!
Nafisa, it was just so adorable how they both didn't want to part but it kind of makes it more romantic na? Sort of like the times before weddings we see on TV, something ArHi of this story never had...sigh.
I might be able to do something about that *winkwinknudgenudge* But can't reveal anymore :P But must say I almost clapped with glee seeing you say that - that's kind of what this was intended to be. Technically they just got engaged, and now there's a symbolic 'off-period' that's similar to the gap between engagement and wedding :D Honestly I love you for noticing that!
And somewhere this companionship, this love will help the changed Anjali too and not just as a source of inspiration but rather a fortified shield...she will have a unified ArHi to depend upon. One more thing I wanted to congratulate you on was your character of Anjali and how it is so great to see a smart, independent Anjali instead of the hackneyed version of her a number of writers punish her with.
*Nods enthusiastically* Yes, yes, yes, you're absolutely right!!! I always go over the moon reading your comments for this very reason - you pick out exactly what I want to say, or want to show, or want to foreshadow, and it makes me feel like I haven't just typed absolute nonsense on my screen :P Thank you SOOO much!!!!
I'll also add that I had high hopes for Anjali at one point - she was blindly in love with Shyam, yes, but her family and their happiness was her priority, and in my mind THAT Anjali would not just sit down with her hands tied if she perceived any threat towards them. So I'm on cloud 9 literally that you liked her characterisation here!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Aap humein kyon thankya rahin hain? Likha aapne itna phantastic hai ki hum toh aise hi comment karenge. :p
I understand how a writer feels when a reader grasps what they were trying to say but you are such a fantastic writer that you provide ample clues as to get there. Also I know for one that you arent the regular writers on IF who will take out their mann ki bharaas on Anjali and thereby give her a proper characterization...so yeah. :)
Honestly if I blush any harder I think my blood pressure will rise. Not to mention my ego inflating to the size of my room and suffocating me :P But thank you, thank you, thank you! If you were anywhere near me I'd scare the life out of you with a back-breaking hug :P
Anjali, and for that matter all characters of IPKKND in general, were very well etched out with massive possibilities which were sadly left unexplored and many a times ruthlessly shunned. Glad to see you taking her out of that darkness and exploring some facets of her personality. :)
Yes, I completely, thoroughly agree with you. Anji in particular, in my opinion, was just plain abused as a character both on the show and as a result on the IPK forums and fanfiction. She went through the same ordeal as her brother, maybe even more so on a level because the tragedy happened on her wedding day, the day she probably dreamed about and fantasised, scarring her. She's just as damaged as Arnav, just dealing with it differently. The sad thing is she never got that shot at redeeming herself that Arnav got - and this goes for so many other people, like Mami, Akash - though Payal comes to mind more prominently. Maybe that's why Anji and Payal are two of my favourite side-characters to explore :)
And I miss writing on IF too but somewhere I think some sort of saturation point (non fiction because of IPKKND ending and nothing else really catching my attention and fiction because of a variery of reasons) seems to have been reached relating to that...lets see now...thanks anyway for your kind words. :)
I can understand what you mean, but I just have to say this - you are one of the very few, out of maybe three or four, writers that I've devoutly followed since picking up fanfiction here, and that's because there's a flair and a genuineness to whatever you write that' s very refreshing and addictive, kind of. Your characters are so well mapped I can relate to them instantly, language so lucid and clear it carries you away, and creativity that leaves me in awe every single time. I know that with the show ending and the plagiarism nonsense and the restrictions a personal blog imposes are all constraints but - you are a very, very talented writer who touches the depths of characters and makes them come alive like they're real, not just puppets doing what you want them to do. Please never give up on writing - it has more heart than the majority of what I've read on Arhi so far.
