Random FanFic: Better Romance Endings! 96, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Fidaa, Qarib Qarib Singlle, and Bonus Gully Boy Extra Romance
I need to write something I can stay focused on while being interrupted by phone calls every 5 minutes at work, and fanfic is where it is at.

Also, this is a very very long post, but you can always just read the ones where you know the original film already.Continue reading

So, I thought, why not give a happy ending to all of love’s losers? And, just to make this more fun, why not cross streams and give happy endings to losers from different films? And why not make an easy post in which I rapidly run through a whole bunch of different plots without a lot of details?
