Anonymous asked: so are Anjali and Arnav going to fight ?

Hopefully yes. Most likely no.

Arnav’s probably going to believe Anjali when she accuses Khushi of making Shyam divorce her and Khushi’s going to cry but not really say anything substantial in her defense apart from ‘mujhe farq padta hai Arnavji!

myarmourfalls asked: OMG you articulate my thoughts about teri meri sequence perfectly. Good to know I'm not alone on this very lonely boat :)

Aww yay! We’ll be on our little boat together. I mean if you just view the sequence on it’s own of course it’s great but in terms of the context of the show and that particular episode it just didn’t fit for me. It’s the kind of sequence that would definitely be either be cut out or put in somewhere else by any competent editor if they had more time between shooting and airing.

Anonymous asked: I read somewhere that when Shyam successfully blames Khushi for everything and everyone including Arnav start hating her.I also read that he tries to blame her but nobody believes him. Which is true? Also, this is mine so could you read it and tell me what you think? Thanks!

No idea which is true. If Arnav hates her once again, I really don’t think their relationship has any worth if he still can’t trust her after he’s seen all her attempts to save him.

Question

Anonymous asked: what will happen in 11 june 2012 's episode of ipkknd? :)

I didn’t answer this before because I have no psychic powers.

11th June: Shyam is the kidnapper, shock! horror! surprise! (not!) and he flashbacked for a good 10 minutes about things we already knew. The only new information is that if Arnav’s death is not a natural one his money goes into some sort of trust.

Khushi moped some more and Anjali, Nani and Payal dressed up in suits and… I don’t really know what the point of that was. Then Khushi went to the temple and made up with Devi Maiyya and asked for her help to find Arnav.

Khushi sees blood on Shyam’s shoes and the episode ends.

liberasian asked: Hey, I understand what you said about the excuses behind the filler episodes & stuff, and it frustrates me too. But I think that I they had amazing episodes every day, the drama would've ended a very long time ago because they'd quickly run out of stuff to show. So they need to drag the storyline & major developments on so they don't run out of content to show. Well, that's my theory anyway :)

I honestly don’t know how I feel because this is the first Indian serial I’ve watched in completion (as in from start to…now) so I can’t accurately compare it to other shows and how they handle their storylines.

But I don’t think that the show needed to drag as much as it has so far because in effect, the show’s been on for nearly a year (over 200 episodes) and in absolutely basic terms, what has happened? I mean overall plot-wise? Not a lot.

I don’t mean that I want Arnav and Khushi to get together immediately and then I’d be happy, (I wouldn’t) but I just feel that the story hasn’t progressed as much as I would have expected it to in a year.

Question

Anonymous asked: Okay, so I just wanted to say that I'm in LOVE with all your fanfictions and everything! :D Lol, I should be doing my homework right now...but instead I'm on various tumblr pages (One Direction, IPKKND, Harry Potter...) aye. *facepalm* I'm only 14 and I should be going to school dances and whatnot, but instead I'm in my room, hogging my laptop. Yeah, cause that's normal. :)

Thank you so much!

But don’t think that because you prefer to be alone on the laptop means you’re not ‘normal’. Normal and weird are just arbitrary labels given by society that don’t actually mean anything. Do what you like to do rather than what you think you should be doing.

You probably get this a lot but I just want to say, you are a FANTASTIC writer. Yours was the first IPKKND fanfiction blog that I came across and I fell in love with your writing! I turned to your stories when I was completely frustrated with the actual show and I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve thought to myself, “Goddammmit! WHY CAN’T THEY JUST HIRE NAYIKA FOR THIS OR SOMETHING?”. I love the way you explore your characters and how you develop them. To be honest, they’re far more interesting than the actual characters from the actual show. I love the different paths that you’ve carried the story on, from Khushi forgiving Arnav and living happily ever after with him to leaving him for NK. I love that so many of your Khushis have the independent streak that I have always wanted for her that is only now coming through in the show.

So in short, you’re awesome. And I hope you keep writing!

Thank you so much! Glad you like them. Writing is a way for me to get my own frustrations out with the show and I’m usually frustrated by Khushi not being independent enough and always being so self-sacrificing which is why she probably comes across like that in my FFs.
(The fanmail was too long for me to take a screencap of :P)

Question

Anonymous asked: Are 30 Days & Temporary Insanity fully finished or will you also start a new Arnav/Khushi story? xxx

30 Days is completely finished.

Temporary Insanity is also finished. Buuuut since it’s my favourite FF to write I might revive it once I’ve finished my other FFs.

Breathing Only Half of the Air will end next and then It’s Not Right.

Just trying to give everything a conclusion before I start my thesis since I won’t have a lot of time to write and I don’t want the obligation of 4 ongoing FFs.

Erm… I don’t have many good feelings about it if I’m honest. We knew the promo was coming up since about the middle of April and so it was a bit anti-climactic.
To me it just showed exactly how at a standstill we are with the show because there’s been about 3 promos since February that start with Khushi saying ‘I have to find out why he married me.’/’You have to tell me why you married me.’
You could genuinely cut out about three months worth of episodes and this promo would still be completely in context because nothing new has happened since they got married.
(I’m more excited that Maanvi’s going to tell Virat she has cancer :P)
