For one, i extremely extremely luved Ashu-CV's rship!.. CV is wat a father shud b..
I wanted to show him as a sensible and sensitive father / father-in-law. In fact, the very day he first rejectd Ashu, he fully trusted him, esp. after listening to the convo between AshNi that day.
Good to know tht Baba came around and accepted AshNi's r'ship..
Yes, after all, he understood love - khudne ne bhi toh love mrg ki thi vo bhi bhaag ke
Armaan is too michevious here.. his f'ship with Ashu reflects.. wat Ashu is deep down... he is a gentleman.. and oh! i luv him for tht.. bt deep down somewhere he is tht man tht every woman wud want!
Yep, i just loved Armaan's character - the perfect foil to ashu's seriousness. He was my fav. character in the show, perhaps even more than AshNI.
@bold - yes, i agree, in spite of his age and insecurities, he is very near to the man every woman dreams of
i luv the simple and yet touching luv tht Ashu-Nidhi share.. in many a scenes i felt tht nidhi in Ashu's arms is wat was meant to b always.. and thr age difference didnt even mattered thn!
I am glad i was successful in portraying their love that way, more than romance, i wanted to show their in-depth love.
@bold - Word.
mst tell ur Ashu is a deep yet subtle and tender lover! this age gap dwelling heavily on his mind.. guiding his appropriate and contained behaviour was such a refined class! And yet thr was this undercurrent tht thy both understood! Ashu a bit late tho! :p
Yes, I always felt the show in the early days lacked the passion needed for a love story. I mean, its okay if they did not touch, but passion can be conveyed with looks, dialogues, etc. (yes i do remember a few such scenes and dialogues of mb, but they were exceptions rather than the norm). So, in my ff, i added a bit of passion, esp. from Ashu's side, esp. after CV gave his yes to the match.
ur SR brot out tht minute dbts.. unsureness abt how it wud all go pretty well! esp from Ashu's POV.. he is contantly aware of the age gap..tht how Ndhi is so young fresh.. and inexperienced.. it was cute tht he thot he shudnt scare her away.. by giving in to the temptation and having his way with her as per his wild dreams!
he was counting on his patience.. bt we saw how he lost it altogether!
Nidhi's dilemma was typically tht of any newly wed girl!.. wat was she supposed to do? How was she to react? Shud she bare her heart boldly or shud she wait for him to initiate! Aaah.. such sweet confusion! Bt her confession was cute!
Ashu was pleasantly secretly relieved tht he wudnt have to wait! thr mixed feeling of shyness and desire at tht first full kiss luked so real!
Aww... dont talk abt the SR - that was the most difficult scene for me to pen.
But, i m glad u liked their thoughts and esp. nids' dilemna came out so naturally, yes, its every girl's dilemna - whether its a love mrg or arranhged mrg.
@bold - i m so glad it looked real, i was wondering ki ye kuch zyaada toh nahi ho gaya - i mean, i was more into their thoughts and feelings rather than their actions in that chapter.
Part 2 coming soon!
Okay.. I mst tell u.. ur mallika is very intrsting character.. evil bt intrsting.. here too she is throwing herself at Ashu at every given opportunity! huh! Luved the way AshNi handled the fraternity gossip!
oh i m so so happy i could keep her character interesting. it was a gamble i took, becoz for one thing, her character was very near to the one on the actual show, and for another, everyone was screaming, we dont even want to read her very name.
@bold - thx a lot dear, that scene is m personal fav too
ur Ashu is a show stealer of this FF.. his character is deep, caring, lovable.. and naughty too! I luved the way he consoled Nidhi for PCOS! awww.. tht was cute!
Yes, I added many layers to his character, i wanted to show how nidhi's sangat made the naughtiness in him come out.
Oh the scene where he consoles her for PCOS - that scene has won me a lot of acolodes - frankly, i thought kahi sab ko vo scene pkau nahi lage - but thank you dear readers for loving that scenes - i worked v. hard on that scene to get the desired effect.
Nidhi is really cute.. understanding and loving.. and yet mature too!
Yes i added layers to her character as well
sad to learn abt Mallu.. however evil mallu mite b.. no woman deserves this! Whoever is culprit needs to b behind the jail!!
bt u created a suspense story out of nower!
And yet watever mallu had done.. it still dictates Ashu's true fship for her.. even after her death.. Ashu blames himself for not able to save her on time!
yet again.. Ashu Nidhi turn out to b gem of a person.. and i luved the way thy stand for each ohter in time of crisis.
hehe so u liked the suspense - makes me happy yes, every crisis only made their relationship stronger - whether it was PCOS or murder charges.
Yes for Ashu, mallu was a dear friend - so its natural that he will blame himself for not being able to save her.
@bold - 100% agree with u. i wanted her pregnant without mrg so that a lot of suspicion falls on ashu, but unfortunately, i could not handle the last chapter the way i wanted to, becoz of time crunch and some other issues. So, i created a lot of mess, which i should have cleared in the last chapter, but unfortunately failed badly there.
And don't worry, jagan was taken into custody to try him for what he did to mallu,
the whole courtroom drama was so lively! really luved teh arguments and esp.. PP's character.. he was so funnilly dramatic.. reminded me of Adaalat.. aaww.. Nidhi defended Ashu and ashu her.. thts sooo soo AshNi!
I am glad u liked the court scenes. but as i said before, i m highly dissatisfied with my last chapter. I m glad u liked the PP's character.
@bold - word
i really luved all the cute scenes of AshNi! esp one with wet hair!
tho Ashu was a bit distracted by Mallu bt still i really luved tht scene..
I am glad - coming from u, this is a huge complement - u excel at such scenes.
and last bt not the least.. kya master plan banaya tha Suhasini ne.. he he he.. ab end padhkar to yahi laga ki thnk God Mallu mar gayi!
I am glad people did not find it tough to digest. I feared people would say ki mujhpe Kekta maiya ka bhoot sawar ho gaya tha, but thank god, kisi ne aisa nahi bola.
@bold, i agree, with such a SIL, its better she died.
twist of jagan was intrsting in courtroom drama.. tho i hated wat he did
@bold - yes, it was downright disgusting
and the character tht i luved most was definitey Ashu! He had all the shades displayed in ur FF.. a caring hubby.. a gentlemanly damaad.. a loyal faithful friend.. a renowned doctor.. and esp i luved his traits of being sober and gentlemanly .. he was a tender lover.. and i luved tht part of him very much!
Wow, Manisha, aapne toh Ashu pe essay hi likh daala .
But, on a serious note, thank you so very much. its very gratifying for a writer to hear the reader echo exactly what she (the writer aka me) wanted to portray.
Nidhi was cute definitely cute and completely devoted.. seriously didnt excpect her to confront mallu.. bt i guess enuf was enuf.. and it was time tht she confronted her and i think in her dying moments.. Mallu got to see how much Ashu-Nidhi luved each other.. tho Ashu was by her side.. she knew he was out of his reach forever!
Yes, har insaan ke bardaasht ki limit hoti hai, and she was already in disturbed state of mind after their confrontation with KS. so its natural.
@bold - oh Manisha, u dont know how happy u made me. I was eagerly waiting for someone to point this out to me, but alas no one did. So, I thank you from the bottom of my heart
Armaan-Tamnaa thing was grt.. bt i wished i cud've learnt abt thr story later on..
Well, did not have the time, so. but from ur comments it seems u missed the epilogue (its on page 99) - usme thoda hai ArmaNna ke baare mee - given the time crunch, thats the best i could do.
and again.. i luved BB-Ashu r'ship.. its warm and totally beyond any r'ship cud define..
I am happy i could portray bb-ashu r'ship properly
all the family scenes were grt.. it brot live a picture of a family.. and even DB came around.. so it was grt..
in time of crisis, whole family came together and stood by Ashu.. really i luved tht!
Yes, i wanted to show family bonding and meaning of being a family, which is missing big time on the show
and the way Nidhi took away her hubby in the end and made Ashu blush was soo very cute!
Yes that's nids' style na , actually wanted to end it as had no time.
all in all, grt story!
Thx dear - i take a deep bow.
Bring in some more!
