My Many Boyfriends

This is an extract from the latest book I am working on with my good friend Kaushiki.

Summary-

“To be fond of writing was a certain step towards falling in love.”
Asphodel Black grew up reading and dreaming about falling in love like her favorite story book characters, like Lily and James, Tobias and Tris, Will and Tessa, Percy and Annabeth, Kili and Tauriel, Mia and Michael, Edward and Bella and so many more but all she found was mistakes and heart breaks, until the day she decided to pen down her pain and in that found true love.

“Hey! Saw you haven’t updated any new work in a while, all good?”

My phone pinned when I stepped out of class, the journal I was writing my book in clutched under one arm.

“Yeah! Taking our suggestion actually, I am trying to write a real book, so my updates are a lot more spaced out than usual. Sorry?”

Cringing I sent the reply, usually I don’t let people know about what I am working on before it’s finished.

“Cool! So what’s it about?”

“Umm… I am still working on it, so I will tell you when it’s done, please?”

“Sure. So you the type who’s shy about their work huh?”

“Yeah, actually…”

“Cool! I would love to read it. I am sure it will be awesome.”

“That makes one of us.”

“Oh come on, Lils, you are an amazing writer, and all you need to verify that is check the list of favorites your fanfictions have!”

“Yeah, right liar! And those are fanfictions, people like for the fandom, the writing, well, is secondary there? And honestly Lils?”

“Would you prefer Miss Hades? Or maybe Miss Regrets to Your Grave? Perhaps Miss Snape after the first question Sev asks Harry? And writing is never secondary you airhead!”

“It’s Miss Black to you!”

“Wait, is your dad’s name Sirius?”

“Shut up! Eugene huh? What’s your surname Fitzherbert?”

“Yeah actually, how did you ever guess?”

“Shut up you fib!”

“Why you hurt me with your mean words, my love.”

“Love? What does he mean?” I think before I laugh. He’s just a friend, if that, I am overreacting, I realize and type an answer.

Forward the hospital bills, darling. :-P”

“I can’t believe I wrote that!” I think but before I can even start typing a response, I get another message.

“Got to go Rapunzel, teacher’s in.”

“Who are talking to so intently Irene?” Elena asks coming suddenly to flank my side as I reach the door of the French room. Lily is there flanking the other side, as they both take my arms and skip us into the classroom.

“Just a friend El,” I reply and sit down at my seat, not missing their eye rolls or waggled eyebrows. Those girls, I tell you!

Fanfiction Recommendation 1

A/N- So I have started doing fanfiction recommendation because that’s what I do most of the time, read fanfiction  and I would love to share the amazing stories I have read/ am reading/will be reading with everyone who loves fanfiction like I do.

A Hobbit’s Rescue by Lady Laran

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11175269/1/A-Hobbit-s-Rescue

Lady Laran‘s A Hobbit’s rescue  is a Hobbit fanfiction that tells us the tale of an AU society  where Hobbit women are treated as inferior. This is a female Bilbo story where the protagonist Adamanta Baggins is saved from this cruel social strata by the Grey wizard and an exiled dwarf king who along with a company of twelve others dwarfs, including the two mischievous nephews of the said King, are on a quest to take back their mountain home from the chiefest calamity of the age, Smaug.

The characters are extremely well developed, especially Adamanta Baggins  who never leaves behind the innocent Shire lass who did not know what courting was but also became a Princess respected and loved by her people, her babies, family, friends, allies and her One. and the two Vala Mahal and his lady wife Yavanah who frequently help the characters. Adamanta with the help of the company and friends made along the way emerges as a person and grows on to become more than anyone in the Shire thought women could ever be- the voice of common sense in Erebor and is given a deed name, like Throin’s Okaenshield, for her actions in the Battle of Five Armies and the way she fought for her family.

The story is filled with many simple lessons and shows that everyone has a right to reach their full potential and how friendship and true love can defeat even the most powerful foe within us, that sometimes we have to turn back from what we were taught what is right and open our eyes to see the world and decide for ourselves what it is that we want and what is correct.  The dialogues and plot are well developed and quite unique while keeping the lovely Hobbit touch. The realistic characters and obstacles as well as the solutions make the fanfiction a worthy read.The style of writing is simple and enjoyable. Oh and it’s a BOFA fixit, which mean loads of love from the extremely handsome Line of Durin!

Summary-

Gandalf keeps a promise he made to a dear friend, Belladonna Took, and in doing so, a lass is saved from a society that scorns women. While she is rescued, the others find that their lives are changed for the better. (AU version of the movie with female Bilbo – BOFA fix it!)

 

 

 

A warrior

A warrior

A warrior she was,

Not of her aim true,

Nor of hardships lived through,

No a warrior she was,

A warrior for her sister,

Protection from the world sinister,

A warrior for the young dove,

A warrior for love,

A warrior she was,

For she fought for family and home,

For all those who under cruelty roam.

She was their Mockingjay,

Of defiance she was a ray.

The girl named after the flower,

Could never stop the songs from her tower,

Sharp as arrows,

Songs sweet as sparrows,

Dark hair and stormy eyes,

With burning ties.

Fire had caught,

No shelter she sought.

If we burn, you burn with us

Was her cry.

A warrior she was,

With her head held forever high. all

A/N- To my favorite heroine- Katniss Everdeen Mellark- a sister who would go to any lengths to save her little duck, a woman who stood strong in the face of fears and most of all a girl who does not fight for herself but for those who need her help, a girl who fights to protect those who can not protect themselves. Hospital scene in Mockingjay? District Eight? Gale’s Whipping? Running off to get the cure for Peeta? Happy Birthday Katniss.
