This is a story about Pramila, Meghnad's wife. I like Pramila. I like Meghnad more, but that's a different issue entirely. I'm sure Pramila likes Meghnad more, too.
In other news, today for the first time in the nearly seventeen years I have been in the education system, a classmate tried to outscream me. I was so stunned he succeeded. I wasn't even having a fight with him. I don't even know.
However. there is fic. Fic makes everything better. *cuddles*
Now to start off the count for 2010. Prompts, anyone? In a drabbling mood. Fandoms are anything in the tags. (Or, alternatively, anything I can read up on, or am likely to know.)
So, I wrote Some Man's Scheherazade for easilymused1956, and I whined and moaned about it on g-talk to everyone who would hear (esp. 22by7 and dearlyderanged) because I was having some species of writers' block and, also, omg, hard. However, she liked it, which makes me happy, and I liked it, which surprised me.
And I wrote, for treats:
O that you were yourself! (Shakespeare in Love) for aurilly,
Pinjre Mein Chand (Kaminey) for applegnat,
Crying Blood for Vengeance (Iliad) for skazka (who I cannot trace)
Dasrathi (Ramayana) for steelehearts
Panch Kanya (Ibis trilogy) for dhobikikutti .
Excellent haul, if I say so myself. *radiates smugness*
Utterly beaten by the gift I got, though: Pyrrha, which is Fire from Heaven Alexander, and made me catch my breath, quite.
I've had a rotten couple days, but better now. Hopefully 2010 will be better than this last year.
Rama: Imran Khan
Lakshman: Ranbir Kapoor
Sita: Sonam Kapoor
Meghnad: Kunal Kapoor.
Then we got bored. However, maybe Sanjay Dutt for Ravana? idk.
We were also wondering about the Mahabharata.
1. Comment on this post if you want to.
2. On request, I will give you a letter.
3. Think of 5 fictional characters whose names begin with that letter.
4. Post their names and your comments on these characters in your LJ.

She gave me the letter 'D'.
Well, that or a strange unibrowed D:)-emoticon, but well.
By the hair and the arm, and waist and hip, and his hands groping at your breasts he leads you to the crowded hall where your husband has pawned all—riches, titles, honour, self—and there you stand among the men who purport to rule all people and know yourself more a man than any. And know yourself a woman under their eyes, and the first threads of shame twining your body and hot anger peeling away, as the garments draping you, under the eyes of strangers and kin, while your husbands watch and your friend helps at his leisure.
A/N: vocab: Kanai and Krishna are the same person, as are Arjun and Partha (there is a multiplicity of names, yes). Krishnā is a woman. The word Krishna means dark, and the long a feminizes the word. The first speaker is Krishna, and then in order. I think that's enough. Oh, and kāma means desire, it's also the name of the god of desire.
Title: eyes like the blue lotus.
Pairings: none, really.
Disclaimer: notminenotminenotmine; i don't think this is how it happened.
