good to read a fanfic with a touch of the sub continent!! very well written and captures the mindset of the indian society quite well!!Author's Response: Thank you, I really did try to get it to work! Thanks for leaving a review Report Review
The summary of this fic totally reeled me in, because omg it is so perfect. I love love love this. It's been so long since I've read anything that isn't next gen or other major canon character-centric and especially not something like this. Yes the stereotypes were notable, but they were executed so well. I love Ma, I am seriously crushing on Vinod, I love the quick but thorough peek into Parvati and Padma's relationship (they're so sweet and sisterly!) and gosh, this was just wonderful and adorable and well-executed. It made me happy. (I am definitely going to read your stuff more more often than once every few months because you're so good omg!).Author's Response: I've read this review a billion times but haven't been able to formulate the words to reply? BASICALLY: thank you so much. This is one of those reviews that's really clear and honest and that panicky people like me don't have to ask questions about. Like 'did she like THIS part though?' and 'What did she think about THIS?' which I honestly do a lot of :c So thank you Gubby! Thank you so very much. Report Review
Typical Delhiate/Punjabi story :)
Not that others are much different. It was fun to read.
(P.S. Patil's are Maharashtrian, they are to speak Marathi at home, not hindi. Also surnames, interstate marriages are not cool)Author's Response: Typical Indian story, tbh. And lol interstate marriages are not cool /anywhere/ babe. Technicalities have never been my strong suit I believe .__. Thank you though! Glad you thought it was fun. Report Review
'Don't be lured by the shiny cars! They'll have pot bellies in three years!' he called as she walked away, throwing her head back and laughing. 'And I'm much better looking!' - this guy deserves a gold medal i seriously love him
AHH THIS FIC, THIS FIC. i've never read anything about parvati and padma, and i love the way that you've incorporated the wizardry into the culture. this story comes across to me as a cross between slumdog millionaire and the wedding scene from love actually (which is awesome) and i can imagine all of this happening so perfectly. i don't even know what to say, really, other than this is wonderful! amazing job :')Author's Response: haha thank you â¥â¥ and for the fab banners as well! vinod is kind of slightly based on this guy i know WITH THE SAME NAME who i massively crushed on for a very short period of time. /unnecessary information. omg love actually YOU DIDN'T!! thank you so much i love you to the moon and back :3 Report Review
This was actually quite funny! And not stereotypical at all, trust me. It happens all the time. I felt so..well, cool understanding all the Hindi words properly :3 (I know Urdu)
Anyways, it was nicely written! It reminded me of those novels about Indian girls, hehe. The humour was spot on as well :DAuthor's Response: Was it really? Thank you haha. And to be honest, India is just teeming with stereotypes, so it's hard not include a few. Well I'm glad you did! I must say, I did a bit too. I haven't enjoyed reading too many stories of the Patil twins, so decided to give this one a go.
Thank you so much! It means a lot! Report Review
