Dialogue Introduction: Have two characters introduce each other using only dialogue—no backstory, no internalization, just dialogue between the two. Max 250 words.
Here is my attempt, where Vrishcik, the character I interviewed on 6th February is in conversation with the character Churi he mentioned then.
“Maybe,” said Vrishchik.”You’re not steel as you claim, Churi. You have emotions.”“
She’s the One isn’t she?”said Churi.
“Yes,”said Vrishchik, blood welling up on his finger as he touched Churi to make sure she hadn’t lost her edge.

Thanks everyone, once again.
I'm glad the creepiness has come through, and that the characters come across as pretty blasé about it–that is what I'm aiming at in the story. 🙂
I think I know what they're talking about. (shudder). Intense. You are good at setting up the friction. I just wonder what your climax is going to be.
I really like these two but I want to know more! Great job!
Intriguing. There is so much going on here.
Very interesting dialogue! I want to know more about these characters and what's going on.
Ooh very cool! And I agree, it's creepy because everyone is so relaxed! Very good job!!
Following along 🙂
So smooth, and flowing. The characters are amazing. So creepy, especially because they are so relaxed about everything. You don't push the creepiness and I like that. 🙂
VERY interesting! Like everyone else, I am curious about the canvas….I want to read more!
patience my pet =)
someone likes to tease!
Thanks everyone for the lovely comments. I just hope the story with the two of them turns out to be just as popular 🙂
I agree with everyone! So curious about canvas!
*New Follower!* So nice to *meet* you!
I love the dialogue and must say I love the names too.
Damyanti–These are fabulous characters! And I agree with Cassie–the writing is beautiful. Well done!
Very mysterious! I definitely want to know more!
Am I the only one who saw a sinister edge to this? The way Vrishchik and Churi were talking about the canvas, and about Anjali gave me a creepy feeling. Like maybe, Vrishchik intends for Anjali to be the canvas.
I agree! The curiosity is killing me! And this was beautiful writing 🙂
Okay, the canvases have to be explained. I wanna know! Good job.
Canvases? Curiosity might kill this cat. This got my attention!
Rusty, they're Indian television actors, who currently play leads in a popular Indian romantic drama-comedy. Yes, I find it helpful that I know what my villain looks like.
A fab piece of writing with a good flow. Who are the people in the photos you use? Bollywood actors? I think it's good to have an idea of what your characters look like, even if you use existing people as an inspiration or rough sketch,as I am doing xxx
Very intriguing characters and story line. I'm curious about the canvases.
