Wow, another wonderful chapter! It was so interesting getting such a deep, disturbing peek into Ranma's mind, and the battle with his cat-fist self was especially creepy - I really loved the moment when it was all over and he turned his head to see the beaded cord connecting him to Akane. That would make a terrific piece of fanart.
Anyway, I can't wait to see him and Akane's reunion! So excited for Chapter 18! Thanks for the fast update. :)

Well, not as much happened here as I would've liked, but you did an excellent job describing Ranma's internal journey. Does this mean he's gained some control or at least can remember what happens in the Cat Fist?
By the way, I was looking through your old reviews and saw that you were once looking for manga recommendations. I recently discovered an interesting one called "Seto No Hanayome." Basically, a 9th grade boy named Nagasumi finds himself forced into an arranged marriage and cohabitation (sound familiar?) with San, a girl his age who he just met after she saved him from drowning. The thing is, San is both a mermaid (who takes human form when dry, although she appears to be somewhat of a water magnet) AND the daughter of a yakuza boss. Unlike Ranma and Akane, Nagasumi and San get along very well. The drama comes mostly from San's disapproving and overprotective father and bodyguards, hiding San's secrets from the other kids at school, and a jealous rival mermaid. I'm pretty sure neither the currently ongoing manga nor animé have yet been officially translated into English, but there are unofficial translations and subs out there.

Another new chapter so soon after the previous one? Fantastic! This was quite a fascinating read, and now I’m *really* looking forward to what comes next.
As for scenes that would make great pictures, you mentioned most of my favorites, but any of the scenes with Akane or Ranma facing the enemy in defense of the other would really be excellent moments to illustrate. I also quite like the imagery from the vision of when Akane was right on the edge of death at Jusendo. The shoji screens? Wonderfully cinematic. Hell, the whole story could make quite an intense movie.
Thanks so much for another installment. I eagerly await the next one!

Great story! I like this one ... I feel bad though, Akane's been doing all the external fighting and Ranma's been doing mostly internal fighting. I think it's also awesome though that Akane doesn't need protecting - something that happens way too often in my opinion! Love this, can't wait until you update again!

My favorite scene? Probably when Akane stomps the rapists into a thin red paste, after she's no longer just fighting to survive. That and when she slams her forehead into her attacker's nose. I love that whole scene, with Akane realizing she's bleeding to death, and fighting to keep going until Ranma can wake up.
As for this chapter... well, still more setup. Fascinating, but not to the point where we get any answers. I do hope this isn't another "Cat Fist as God Mode" thing, but it looks like he's just gained conscious control of it. Which could mean anything from remembering and staying conscious through the cat takeover to a merging of cat and human skills.

Whoa. Excuse me for a moment while I catch my breath.
That was phenomenal chapter - the journey inside Ranma's head felt so real and dream-like at the same time (you captured that beautifully). The desperation in Ranma's frantic search for Akane comes across clearly and I love the imagery and descriptions you use. That little teaser at the end makes me rather desperate for the next chapter, but I promise to wait (mostly) patiently ;)
I don't know if I could pick just one favourite scene, although you have listed many of my favs already (particularly the peach scene), but I would love to see the scene where Ranma wakes up from his nightmare in chapter 14 and rushes to Akane's side.
Eagerly looking forward to the next chapter!

It's amazing! The spiritual cord still link them and Akane is still alive, good! After this, maybe cat fist will be under Ranma's control now. I look forward to read the next chapter.

Cat fist Ranma sits on her to check if she is possessed was my fav so far.
| jdcocoagirl 5/17/13 . chapter 17
i can't get enough of this... more soon.
| Ruchu 5/16/13 . chapter 17
OMG I was sooooo glad When you started the story up again but my silly computer wasn't letting me review :( OMG this story is the best. The plot is complex but the way you describe it is like a movie playing in front of my eyes.. And the way you express Ranma's emotions his fear it's just. Wow. Pleaseeeeeee don't ever stop writing!

excellent fic keep it up.
| VlightPhase 5/10/13 . chapter 16
Excellent as always, not helping me to study like I should though. I look forward to what you have planned next.
| Angela Jewell 5/10/13 . chapter 16
Yayyyy! So excited to see an update - and such a nice, juicy one at that! Looking forward to more, no matter how long the wait! _

You are back with a new chapter...I'm sooo happy! Sachi doesn't know how is Akane's life, I bet it will be difficult to stay away from demon (and Ranma's neko), poor Akane. Without Ranma's ki Akane is going to die,right? I can't wait when Ranma come back to her. I love this couple, I think Ranma should tell her his feelings before something happens (like her death) maybe her could change his mind about their relationship. I hope there will be some romance moments between them in the future. THANK YOU for update this wonderful new chapter!

It's been a while since the last update so I was pleasantly surprised to see a new chapter. I love a good Ranma fanfic. Honestly, this has me bubbling with excitement and just fluffy feelings at points. I can only hope you continue!
