doramathon [take two]: the second asian fandoms comment ficathon  
i disclaim all responsibility. blame alex and eleonore for their insidious incepting prowess.

f6



WHAT HAPPENS HERE:


01. Fic. But no, really.

02. This ficathon is open to all Asian fandoms, which means prompts for K-pop, J-pop and whatever you may wish, are also allowed apart from the K-Dramas, J-Dramas, T-Dramas etc.
Crossover with western shows, if that gets you going (actually, now there's an idea.) Spam prompts for Indian soaps if you so want, 20-year-leaps and all. It's all cool.

03. One prompt per comment please.

04. Prompt as much as you want. It is a truth universally acknowledged that if it exists, people want fic for it.

05. While this is primarily a ficathon, we're all sasaeng fans
here for the Asia love, so in THIS thread convert people to your fan-religion feel free to post any other items of interest; videos, interviews, gifs, lists of Totally Objective Reasons why your particular show/ship/group is Totally Objectively The Best, your biases doing the most adorkably embarrassing gwiyomi. Why people who haven't watched your favorite drama have only existed and not lived till now. Idol worship with impunity \o/

06. Social mores and morality has no place in this degenerate bar. Anything goes. Any and all ship/kinks allowed; RPF, slash, gen, het, incest, whatever floats your boat. LOVE IS LOVE ETC.

07. Please add all filled prompts to the thread that very originally says
Filled Prompts below. Try and follow the order as such: name-fandom-ship-rating-prompt.

08. If you know of an existing fic that seems to fit a prompt, feel free to rec it here to the prompter concerned.

09. If you so desire, pimp this on your journals, using the link below for the html code :D

10. If you are proficient in banner making/graphics/just want to show your bias has a face, you can post other banners here or just use your own.

11. Write! Write! Write! These fandoms are ridiculously lacking in fic, which is the dictionary definition of travesty. Honestly, it doesn't matter even if just five or six people participate, it's just fun to add to fandom!


More prompts = more prompts to choose from = more writers interested = more fic . /this post requires mathematical expertise y'all.

FIC:

all your perfectly delivered lies | ranbir/deepika | rpf | pg-13 | 1/2
"I'm dating Ranveer," her voice is rushed, like she can't believe she's doing this, nearly drowned out by all the bustling just behind the curtain. He used to watch Wizard of Oz every time it aired.

It's fitting, he supposes, in retrospect, that his response involves no questions, no confused why would you tell me this now, no it isn't any of my business anyway, no isn't this a random time to be calling your ex-boyfriend about your new lover, "...okay."

She doesn't seem particularly surprised by his response either, which is also fitting, in retrospect.

"I thought you should hear it from me, first. Just in case Karan asks."

She's hung up, before he's had a change to respond. But he can hear the starting music of Koffee With Karan and Kareena's looking at him like 'seriously?', so it's a good thing, anyway. And it's not like he didn't already have an idea. Wasn't like he hadn't heard all the rumors surrounding Ram-Leela. It's hard to completely tune out the grapevine.

(Karan doesn't ask; in case you were wondering.)



-



See, anyone but Deepika and he'd put it down to a competitive spirit. An 'I'm More Over You Than You Are Over Me' moment. He's not an asshole, he's just honest. Relationships, in their essentiality, are power-play, and anyone who believes otherwise is deluding themselves or selling something. The person who is more in love, loses.

But since it is Deepika, she probably means exactly what she says; she wants him to hear about it from her first. Because it's common courtesy to not let your ex-boyfriend be blindsided on national television. It derives from the same, intense earnestness that made her so uncomfortable to date; where, even when she didn't say anything at all, he constantly felt like he wasn't giving enough.

(He never gives enough, that's the rule of the game, but she didn't bother playing at all, and he couldn't forgive her that. Could never forgive her for making him forget, on occasion, that there were rules.)



-



Falling into Katrina is easy, uncomplicated. She's a professional in every aspect of her life, including, apparently, her relationships.

She makes time for him when she should, visits when she should, texts him when she should, and he can't remember the last time he had to work so little to make something work. It's the kind of relationship that he was built for.

(She used to call him at the oddest hours, force him to choose between her dresses and, in the end, wear whatever the hell she wanted to in the first place, and didn't smile like she meant it when she didn't mean it.

And here's the thing about him: he doesn't do complicated. It's funny when he thinks about it, really; he's his own media stereotype.)



-



"I was madly in love," she says, and god, somehow, somewhere she learnt to smile like she means it when she doesn't, "so it was bound to end badly."

Katrina is sitting on the edge of his sofa, and he doesn't know why they're watching Karan interview his ex, but it's not like there's anything particularly normal about anything that happens in Bollywood, so there's no particular reason why relationships should be the exception.

"She's changed," she comments, walking up to his cabinet and pulling out his bottle of scotch. She knows where things are now, this is real.

He switches off the television instead of answering, he doesn't want to see how much, it feels wrong to catalog her expressions and remember tracing them with his hands. It wasn't a question anyway.

(It feels wrong to see her smile and feign ignorance whenever the subject of Ranveer comes up, and it comes up a lot. She wan't about the feigning, she was about the no comments and the downcast eyes and the wide smile which made comments redundant at second glance, because everyone could tell.

He can't tell anymore.)

all your perfectly delivered lies | ranbir/deepika | rpf | pg-13 | 2/2
Deepika is the darling of the awards season this year.

Each ceremony blurs into the next. He's running on adrenalin and caffeine most days and all his responses are automatic. It doesn't matter anyway, everyone knows Farhan's going to win all the awards for Bhaag Milkha, he doesn't need to practice fake-smiling in the mirror too long. His jaw's beginning to hurt with the strain, as it is.

Congratulations, he manages each time he runs into her. She's always holding an award; he doesn't know if it's for Chennai Express or Ram-Leela or their own movie together, but it doesn't really matter.

(He hopes it's not for Ram-Leela. He hasn't actually seen the movie, but, whatever.)



-



Katrina makes him finally watch it.

"It's good," she says, casually, and there are no recognizable inflections in her voice. She isn't trying to gauge his reaction, she genuinely just thinks it's good. He's gotten too used to Deepika, too used to reading more in fewer words. This is easier.

He can spot the exact scene her expression changes, when she stops acting the part and becomes the part. When she looks at Ranveer and she isn't faking the intensity. It makes something in him curl in distaste.

This is a rookie mistake, letting on-screen emotions affect you, believing it's real, when it never is. He's not drunk enough for this.

"It's boring," he says, and switches it off, "way too over-hyped."
"You seem to do that a lot," Katrina notes, and this time there's an inflection he can't read.

(See, the thing is: He thought she was a better actress than this, considering how much she's been nominated for the movie. But if it's real, if the emotions are real, then she's not acting, and she doesn't deserve the recognition. She doesn't deserve all the praise for nuances when her performance isn't nuances because she isn't performing at all.)



-



(He knows they're 'dating'. But the word doesn't really mean anything. He's used the word for a variety of relationships and it doesn't mean anything. He can't understand her. He just can't.

But Ranveer had his hands on her, all over her, and there's this one moment where there's a familiarity in her gaze, she has the same expression she used to when he touched her, and fuck. She hasn't changed, he was wrong there. She hasn't changed, not really, she's just become better at pretending she has.

He thought he broke her, a little. But she isn't even cracked, and he's barely assembled together anymore.)



-



"I'm dating Katrina," he's slurring the words, but just a little, so nobody can really tell.

"Are you drunk?" Of course she can.

"Why is he calling you?" he can hear someone's voice in the background. His voice.

I don't know, he can hear her whisper back, it's probably a mistake. This is his cue to hang up, but he's become fairly bad at reading those.

"You're the biggest mistake I ever made," he manages, instead, because it's true. It's the most honest he's ever been.

"Thanks," she says, dryly, "looking at your film choices this year, that's a pretty heavy mantle you're handing over."

It makes him laugh, out loud. He'd forgotten she could do that. He'd forgotten he could do that.

"I never loved you, you know." he's a bastard, ask him how.

"...okay."

"How is that okay?" Because how is it fucking okay, he's the okays, and she's not him, she was never him, "you know I'm lying."

He can hear Ranveer in the background, just a mundane set of sounds; of steel plates being kept down, and the hum of the air conditioner, which he can catch if he listens hard enough, and why is he at her house at three in the afternoon, when it's not like anything interesting ever happens. God, what are they anyway, married.

"Look," she says, "you're going to regret this sober, so why don't I do us both a favor and hang up."

He calls her again, she doesn't pick up.



-


The fact is: he's more over her than she is over him. He has to be. He doesn't lose at his own game. He can't possibly lose at a game in which he's the only one playing, because that would be ridiculous.

(In case you were wondering.)

*faints*

NOW I WANT MOAR AND WHERE WILL I GET MORE.

So perfect, I swear to god so perfect. Mostly, I do not like Ranbir. He just rubs me the wrong way. But I can totes get used this side of him, this side, all up to his eyes in lies and denial.

NEVER STOP BEING FANTASTIC, YOU. <3

I CANNOT EVEN BELIEVE I WROTE THIS. LIKE, WHAT EVEN.

LOL, I like Ranbir fine enough, I think he seems kind of a jerk, but he really is a good actor and builds up excellent chemistry with his co-stars, at least on-screen. But yeah, I totally get him not being very likable in general.

THANK YOU SO MUCH <3

Re: all your perfectly delivered lies | ranbir/deepika | rpf | pg-13 | 2/2
OH. MY. GOOD. GOD.

WHAT DID YOU? HOW DID YOU?

This is perfect in more ways than I can count. I absolutely lovelovelove the tone it has been set in and I can really get used to looking at Ranbir like this. He sounds like the saddest man ever.

The sheer angst of this was so palpable. I interpreted it in a way that you might find ridiculous. But, to me he sounds like a hollow shell of a man looking out his window and catching glimpses of someone else's life.

He just seems much like a stranger in his own life, watching it slip past the spaces between his fingers and unable able to do a thing about it. His denial, his hangups and everything basically just creates a stark difference between his perceived notions about himself. It would have been ridiculous if it wasn't so tragic.

OK. I just don't even. I am not able to articulate what I mean to say here but hey you are the talented writer here. Also,this whole thing reminds me of this quote by Yohji Yamamoto: "My whole life is made up of: "I'm sorry". I feel like I have to apologize to people, to things, to life itself. It's like, "I'm sorry to be here". I don't want to disturb anyone."

I kinda dig the fact that Deepika is perfectly happy and over him in this one. Perfect girl deserves a perfectly happy ending.


One more, thing:

He thought he broke her, a little. But she isn't even cracked, and he's barely assembled together anymore

...

NO.

Re: all your perfectly delivered lies | ranbir/deepika | rpf | pg-13 | 2/2
LOL, honestly I have never even thought of Ranbir and fandom or even Bollywood!shipping ever before this ficathon. IDEK WHAT THIS FIC IS OMG.

ALSO, I think your interpretation is aces, and probably way better than whatever I was thinking while writing it. But Ranbir does seem to me essentially the type of person (although obv it's a false equivocation since I don't know him at all and cannot correctly judge) who would be lonely. Because he's so much of a persona, I'd imagine it'd hard for him to switch that off and be a real person. And obviously, his reputation and all that his exes say about him, seems to compound that. It's like he is his image. And his relationship with Deepika interests me so much on that count, because she seems really blunt, really in the I-date-for-marriage space, and they seem to be polar opposites in a lot of their world-views, especially relationship-wise, so that they were together and (at least on her part) "madly in love" is so intriguing.

That quote is iiiinteresting, I can see it applying to so many people and situations, seriously.

BUT THANK YOU, for taking the time out to write me such a lovely, thoughtful review, I really appreciate it, and so glad you liked the fic! (Even though I had no idea what I was doing, hee)

i'm so upset with you i can't even do words
YES I'VE BEEN WATCHING KOFFEE WITH KARAN YOU DICK. THIS ALL STARTED YESTERDAY AFTER I REWATCHED JAB WE MET AND HAD TO STOP WRITING DOWN MY GROSS FEELINGS MIDWAY BECAUSE WOW I STILL CANT HANDLE IT WTAF IS THIS MOVIE. AND IDK I THOUGHT IT WAS A GOOD IDEA TO LOOK UP SHAHID/SINGING ON YOUTUBE. AND ONE THING LED TO THE NEXT. AND FOR A HORRIFYINGLY INTENSE TEN MINUTES I THOUGHT KAREENA AND SHAHID WERE ACTUALFAX MARRIED BECAUSE OF THE LAST NAME THING AND THEN IT TURNED OUT THAT THEY HAD BEEN DATING PRIOR (AND DURING, RIGHT? IDK I'M STILL UNCLEAR ON WHEN THAT ENDED) JAB WE MET AND THAT WAS ALREADY TOO MUCH INFO FOR MY LITTLE HEART LIKE WOW TAKE IT EASY ON ME I AM TRYING NOT TO GET MY SHIPPER HEART BROKEN HERE LIKE DO I SHIP THIS OR WHAT. AND THEN I FOUND OUT THAT SHE IS NOW MARRIED TO THE MOST ATTRACTIVE MAN ON THE PLANET OH HELP ME GOD SUDDENLY IT WAS LIKE TEAM WHAT TEAM, WHO IS EVEN MY BIAS HERE HAHAHA PROBABLY THE ULTIMATE SHIP IS KAREENA/KARAN LBR FOR A SECOND. EXCEPT ALSO KAREENA/RANBIR BECAUSE I AM ME. AND SO WATCHING THIS INTERVIEW WITH RANBIR I SUDDENLY REALIZED THAT OH NO THIS BREAKUP STORY WITH DEEPIKA DON'T TELL ME IT'S THE SHIP ZOE WRITES FIC ABOUT OH NO NO NO THIS IS SUCH BAD NEWS OH HELP. AND SO I DECIDED TO WATCH THEIR STUPID MOVIE RIGHT AWAY BUT THANK GOD I FELL ASLEEP FINALLY (IT WAS 5AM NO THANK YOU ZOE NO THANKS TO YOU) SO INSTEAD I WATCHED IT TODAY AND NOW I AM TRYING TO PRETEND THAT I'M A NORMAL PERSON.

RANBIR/DEEPIKA FIC. okay, honestly, this isn't the way that i read them, and i probably got entirely the wrong thing out of this but my favourite part of this was ranbir/katrina? because idk, i've always found them hard to place, as a couple, and i think you just nailed them for me? ♥ aces.

Sometimes my brain just goes on autopilot and I take no responsibility for what happens, omg.

But no, you didn't get the wrong thing at all; R/K is super intriguing for me as well, because I just can't understand what kind of dynamic they'd have. Katrina, in general, seems hard to place as a person, which probably compounds it. And I'm glad they worked for you in this fic, because they're a complete mystery to me!

Re: all your perfectly delivered lies | ranbir/deepika | rpf | pg-13 | 2/2
nooo, dammit, you can't say shit like that, now you've thrown me back into the realm of doubt. i really like the whole katrina as a pro thing. the thing about her is she's hard to place as an actress. as in, she doesn't. act, i mean. and yet she's gotten to the kind of rank she has in the industry (even though going by koffee, nobody in the industry thinks she can act, lmao). and i know people go on about her dancing but i find her so incredibly stiff. she's learned, but she still does not look natural at all and i don't like her style either. it's not at all comfortable or enjoyable watching her dance. whereas someone like gauhar khan - i've got ishaqzaade saved on my computer, and i love the movie but i constantly break out her dance numbers just because i love watching her dance.

and, okay, ranbir/deepika. i LOVE them together, and YJHD was so glorious and literally the perfect romcom, but i don't ship them anymore. because ranveer/deepika is so good, because he worships her, and i think she needs and deserves that. and because ranbir/deepika in its current permutation as i read it is SO GOOD -> friends, ex-lovers, so: friends with bite. i love every iteration of this kind of dynamic. it's why that song in love aaj kal is MY FAVOURITE, it's lyrics are literally "we broke up, so now we don't need to give a fuck about each other, whoo hoo! high-five." whereas they were actually quite boring when they were actually going out.
youcallitwinter: hell yeah.youcallitwinter on March 3rd, 2014 07:32 am (UTC)
Re: all your perfectly delivered lies | ranbir/deepika | rpf | pg-13 | 2/2
hahaha, but that is definitely my headcanon for them, that they'd have this really sorted relationship, far away from the emotional messiness of ranbir/deepika. and i completely agree on kat's acting abilities or a severe lack thereof. (as does everyone on koffee, it is always amusing to me). AND YET she's one of the most popular, most sought after actresses and apparently gets paid a hell lot. but i think kat is also difficult to pin down as a person, like i have no idea what she's like, even persona-wise. i can reasonably judge most actors (whether correctly or not is, of course, open to contention) based on news about them or interviews etc., but she's a complete mystery. i have no idea what sort of a person would date both salman and ranbir, because even they seem to have nothing particularly in common, you know. she's just very hard to pin down, for me.

YJHD WAS glorious, and I wasn't expecting it to be, for some reason, so i was doubly impressed; kalki was so good too! but YES@deepika deserving to be worshipped, TA with that. she seems so much happier. and lol, yeah, ranbir/deepika must have been boring while they were going out because i actually don't remember a single thing about them from that time.

Re: all your perfectly delivered lies | ranbir/deepika | rpf | pg-13 | 2/2
yeah, i REALLY like this idea! of katrina being really together and not really needing him, and ranbir being into that. but you know, it had never occurred to me, to think of the ranbir-salman connection in that way. kat was with salman for AGES, and he's apparently a horrible boyfriend who gets violent and obsessive; he fucked ash up badly. ranbir is supposedly a manwhore who's also a totally cool guy. they're basically opposites! it's a much more interesting side to katrina than anything she's ever done on screen, lmao. i actually really loved her for a long time, from humko deewana kar gaye. i don't remember much about that movie except that i really liked it and thought she was really good, lol. she had that expressions thing going on that i really dig. but then it faded around race and then i became indifferent and now me and my friends grumble if she's cast in a movie because it's already ruined, lol. ;\

omg i was SOLIDLY preobsessed with YJHD from the first time i saw the trailer. and then i was obsessed with balam pickari and ilahi. and then post-obsessed - i literally spent like half a year in full-on love mode with that movie. i have a REALLY good radar for picking out which movies i'm going to love from their trailers, it's largely accurate.
i never saw bachna ae haseeno but i remember the song, and i remember that people were like wtf, they're dating, how can they have no chemistry.
