The Midnight Hour Upon Us

Once more we bid you a sweet end to one of our favorite experiences of being part of IPK Ficverse.

We hope our friends, both old and new, have enjoyed this adventure with us.

We have reached the official end, but there remain the FWN: Epilogues to explore. It was written as a thank you to all our engaged readers. If you have been joining us in the peanut gallery, an invite will be sent to the email you’ve been using to comment. Please expect your invitation on February 28th.

For clarity, please visit our PG Gallery FAQ page. (There’s also a little off the cuff bromance for your enjoyment) ^^

Before you go off to read the final Night, let’s raise our glass with a toast from a well loved poet –

A Clear Midnight

This is thy hour, O Soul, thy free flight into the wordless,
Away from books, away from art, the day erased, the lesson done,
Thee fully forth emerging, silent, gazing, pondering the themes thou
lovest best.
Night, sleep, death, and the stars.

– Walt Whitman

As always, happy reading!

  1. Omg cant believe its coming to an end, read this for the very first time and I’m so glad I stumbled upon this.
    Off to read the chapter now πŸ™‚

  2. Well well… third day in a row quite the surprise.
    For starters I just did not want it to end I want more 😭 after such a long while I found a guilty pleasure away from a super busy life.
    And the fact that I finally got to read it.
    Anyway, coming to night 12.
    It depicted a beautiful transition of winter to spring , the calamity and the bloom that tends to take over when one allows themselves to heal, grow and accept new experiences.
    Payal goes to seek closure. Shyam allows himself to find his identity. NK extends beyond the sass and sees that is there more to Robbie beyond the facade. Arnav and Khushi realise that companionship and respect have them glued together.
    In essence all of them through friendship, love, marriage, & commitment find a way to complete each other.
    What a beautiful story that you penned down here.
    Congratulations on completing it πŸŽ‰
    & May you pen continue to write such wonderful words.

    1. You have no idea how this is completely against our normal modus operandi . πŸ˜›
      Thank you for joining us, your company has been a pleasure throughout these long nights. ^^
      In truth, nothing lasts forever. Be it cold winter nights or fresh spring days. It is the bonds we forge along our journey that shapes us and connect us to something larger than ourselves.

  5. I just commented on the main chapter, and a long one at that, so I will just say, that it’s been a magical and lyrical journey from hour 1 to the witching hour. Enjoyed every moment of it and am so looking forward to more from you. You are gifted writers and I love the insights into each person in this story.
    Looking forward to reading more

  7. The end of this story will be bittersweet, wish it never ends but you can’t strech it, than it’ll lose its essence. But going forward I’ll be going back to this story again
