OMG OMG OMG OMG Indu & Kadeen
! What have you guys done? What have you created?!
I am literally speechless! That update has left me utterly spellbound, mesmerized, dazed and incapable of any coherent thought at the moment!
How the heck do you guys do this? Write so flawlessly that one just seem to drown in the beauty of the words you have seamlessly woven together! And I am always left baffled when I realize that it is TWO of you behind this masterpiece. Where does this synchrony come from? So much so that I am never able to tell when one person stops and the other person begins!
Anyways, I digress, point is that I spent the last half an hour reading those last two updates, reading as slowly as I possibly could and going back to re-read some of the parts only because I did not want it to end! I wanted to wait until next week when I was done with my finals to read this in peace, but curiosity got to me and now the only thing I can do is repeatedly visualize the beauty of your words in my head over and over again!
Seriously, you have left me mesmerized with your attention to detail! The way you focus on all these small details make it possible to picture the entire scene and that just makes the effect all the more lethal! Being a fan of films from this era, I have always been a big fan of ball scenes because that's usually where the passion runs high and the seeds of love are sown! And while the same happened here, there was something about the way the entire thing was written that just casts a spell upon the whole moment! I took the time to properly understand and visualize every movement, every step of their last waltz and it left me breathless at the sheer beauty of it!
And the entire time all I wanted to do was to see this whole story play out the way it is on the silver screen! I could so perfectly see Gurmeet and Kratika LIVING these avatars of Yash and Aarti, and imagining them as a part of royalty in the Victorian era creates quiet a heady image! And if that sizzling dance wasn't enough, that kiss on the balcony just about killed me! You could just feel the chemistry emanating from the words in front of me!
This is the first time I am actually reading an FF on this era, especially on a fandom that has absolutely nothing to do with that time period, and I have to say that you both win all the awards for sheer creativity! To come up with an idea like this and then to shape it in such a beautifully intricate way is no small feat! So thank you so much for this! And all the DC inspired names are just the icing on this delicious, delicious cake (Slyendra being my favorite one from this one, such an apt name)! Seriously, I bow down to the greatness that is your imagination!
P.S. I know that many other important things were also covered in this chapter, but I am still in a daze over the last part, so I'll try to come back and comment on the other stuff later if I get some time! Or I might just read this again, either way its a win-win!
