Hello IFians, Fanfiction readers and writers!!
Groucho Marx, in his typically tongue-in-cheek wackily humorous manner, once said:
"Outside of a dog, books are a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read!"
However, we're sure die-hard readers would find a way to read even inside of a dog!
And when it comes to online fiction, things are even more easy for these avid bibliophiles since all devices have 'inbuilt' light!
Okay, okay, jokes aside, you won't have any trouble at all reading our two chosen featured FFs for this month!
For one thing, they're available right here on our FF section, and we're highlighting them in the featured zone all through the month of August so they'll be even more accessible to readers.
Secondly, both of these well-written fictions are interesting reads because of the choice of vocabulary, the flow of narration, characterization, plot, good grammar and syntax, and above all, the creativity of the author.
So let's head right over and meet these two fabulous authors and their stories!
Let me heal you is inspired by You loved me at your weakest by Evie Harper. It’s the story of a girl who is convinced she can never be loved because of the abuse she experienced. It's also the story of a boy who made the girl realize that no matter what she has gone through, she is still lovable.
Koeli is a national-level athlete in 10-meter air rifle shooting and holds multiple individual medals in state-level competitions. She also owns and is a coach at TenXShooting Institute in Kolkata. On IF, of course, she is a much sought after and popular moderator on several forums and also head of the FF development team, the woman behind the creation and development of the FF section, and a inspiring leader to us!
Koeli wasn't a very avid writer or reader when young and had no plans of ever becoming a writer. The show, Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon? was the catalyst for her writing. She was intrigued by the acting skills and the chemistry between the lead actors, Barun and Sanaya who played Arnav and Khushi. They have been her sole inspiration and to date, she writes stories mainly on them.
She loves writing Romance and RomCom, but her wish is to write a thriller someday.
When reading, Koeli usually picks books rather than authors, so she does not have a favorite author, although she prefers international ones. She loves playing games and cards in her leisure time.
Congratulations, Koeli and here's your winning siggy!
Love can be confusing, mysterious, soothing and sometimes dark. Like a potent enigma, it can destroy a soul, heal a heart, make one lose their way or rediscover oneself in the light of their love. This OS collection, Love: An Enigma, deals with love and loss by exploring various facets of love between Maya Jaisingh and Rudra Roy in four different situations in the Beyhadh 2 universe, as estranged lovers or two strangers with love blossoming between them. This OS collection does not follow a linear timeline.
Tiara comes from West Bengal, has a Masters degree in Math and is an analyst by occupation. Tiara is a curious person, loves travelling, and meeting new people. But contrastingly, she calls herself an introvert who loves to introspect.
Her first inspiration to write came from her father, who writes poetry. For a while, academics overshadowed Tiara's passion for writing but did not diminish it completely. She found an outlet for writing by maintaining a diary. She began writing character analyses which helped her think deeply about each character in her favorite shows, and eventually, stories began to take form in her imagination.
Tiara first began writing fan-fiction with Maya-Rudra of Beyhadh 2. She also loves Aditya-Zoya of Bepannah but has only written character analysis on them.
She loves reading comedy, romance, thrillers and science fiction. She prefers stories that have an element of surprise, irrespective of the genre. She also enjoys post-modernist literature with themes of war and humanity. While writing, she loves the challenge of thinking up of new ways to create surprises within the story. She likes writing thrillers, horror and romance.
Her favorite authors include Mark Twain, Ruskin Bond, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Guy de Maupassant, O' Henry, Oscar Wilde, Agatha Christie and Virginia Woolf.
In her leisure time, Tiara likes listening to music and podcasts, playing music on her instruments, or playing chess. She enjoys watching movies, and binge-watching thriller shows, or even revisiting old episodes of her favorite shows.
Congratulations, Tiara and here's your winning siggy!
Thank you to all the FFEs and Beta Readers who voted. Congratulations once again, Koeli and Tiara.
That is all from our end, see you all next month, with two more beautiful stories.
