| Vernica chapter 20 . 9/6/2017
Because of school I haven't been able to read your last 3 updates, and I was so anxious to reed them! I've been loving your story since the very fisrt chapter. Now that I'm out of it, I ran to mi laptop to read them and find that one of my favorites stories is over! Is so sad but at the same time is sooo perfect. I loved those last chapters, how thet talk about their feelings and became a 'real couple', aaaand... It was a perfect finale, luv it! But you left me with an empty feeling and the need for more! :(
However, thank you for finishing this and for writing it and share it of course! I enjoyed every single chapter hope to read more from you.
Hugs from México

So... the main issue I have so far is that this story seems like it would work fine without making it a Ranma fanfic. The characterizations all feel "inspired-by" the originals rather than being spot on, and the AU seems to eliminate all of the fantastical elements of the source setting.
That said, the thing I think I like best is that the story works well in spite of that. It's interesting and engaging, and while the characters don't quite read as their canon counterparts, they're all sufficiently compelling—combined with the premise—that I want to keep reading.

What a fun story! It had me hooked from the very first chapter. I'm glad it's actually complete as well I think you stayed true to the characters, and loved the pairings.

Best mature R/A AU fic, EVER, hands down.

Re read this, for the( like)the fifth time. I need good ranks and akane inspiration. Thank you so so much for being a wonderful writer and taking time out to create something for all of us to enjoy.
I'm so glad to be on this ship with you! lol can't wait for more, seriously.

Oh, how many times have I heard the line "Warts and all?" I have a 7 year-old daughter, and that was her first addiction movie, so when I read that I nearly snorted in shock and giggles!
This story, as a whole, had its ups and downs, as most stories do. However, you stayed true to the characters that YOU had created, and persevered. They took on their own unique lives, pulling away from the manga just enough to allow them some unpredictability. I'm glad to see that you didn't throw any unnecessary curveballs at us, Shampoo alone could have been a monkey wrench that stretched at least another chapter more. I was worried there would be more strife, but you held it in and all the interactions, for the most part, proved themselves necessary to push the plot in a specific direction. The lemons were well written and not overly gratuitous, the characters were comfortably familiar while unpredictably new, and the story was fun to read.
I have to say, I enjoyed the ride, warts and all!

My goodness, I totally forgot about Shampoo! And now we have Shinnosuke, hmmmm. Wonder what mischief this will bring. Nice chapter, hopefully they'll stop whining and cement their relationship down, which probably would have been smarter to do BEFORE the whole sleeping together thing, kids these days!
Lucky thing about reading this late, no cliffhangers for me, Muhahahahhahahh!

Snickers and Japanese hipsters, oh my! Also, the only good buns on a man are below the belt.
I went to the Adult site to read the last few chapters in full, nice job! My only critique would be that they get a smidge preachy with the safe sex agenda, but other than that they have a good pace and are (mostly) realistic. I only say this because there are some authors who write sex like they never had it, which may be true, but if you're old enough to write and read it, just watch a porno and get some tips! You made it believable, and fun, so we'll done!

I like how the relationship is developing, much more the direction I'd imagine these two going in. There were parts a few chapters back that felt off, but I feel like that's been rectified nicely.
It's funny how much a review can have you crashing or soaring. Just remember that they're only words...and if they're bad, probably from an asshole.

"Yup, no faith at all. Those fuckers."
Ah, that made my night! Haha! I'm back, sporadically reading and writing when I get a moment, so don't think I've disappeared.
Also, just read your profile page and had to chuckle at your name; truer words have never been said! As for Avatar and Korra, I see your points. It was a little rough to see that Aang was so blinded and fallible when it came to family, but I think that was intentional from the creators. They seem like they put Avatar out there with idealism, then slapped reality and disappointment across our faces with Korra. Don't feel bad for them, though, at least they were all free to make their mistakes. And they seemed ok with the outcomes, as well as Katara's story being yet untold in full. Who knows what she was truly responsible for. Korra was a wonderfully faulty character, and her show took us along on a rocky ride to an incomplete future. They purposely left so much hanging just so we'd be suckered into buying the comics, heh heh.
And all the points about the truth behind Ranma and Akane's actions and feelings, especially when comparing the manga vs anime, I don't even get WHY they diverged so heavily when animating such a great story! I argue with my friend, who's only watched the anime, about who the obvious true fiancée is, and he torments me with Shampoo! (It's all in jest, but Akane is just so much better that it makes me crazy!)
Anywho, nice chapter. Moving on from my rant, now.

Awesome story! I think the characters were on point and the plot development and relationship progression were very natural. Kudos!

Azusa...oh. In my mind, she was so small and acted so ditzy that she was sexless, like a kid who would never grow up. Somehow, the whole bootie-call thing kind of grossed me out with Azuza. :/
Other than that, sure! Work out those issues, guys! I wanted him to go after her, as he never seemed to get the hint and stay away, but he's a big boy now. Their date was sweet, and Akane laughing at the cursed scrolls was amusing, so I can't wait for them to have a third go at a first date!

If anyone was bothered by a little cock-blocking, then they didn't read the manga!
They moved a bit quick, but as you said, they are both older and more experienced. I get a kick out of all the references you toss in from the canon, they really sound obsurd when put into context in a more realistic world.
So glad they got to be alone, now let's see who's ruining that moment behind door number one!
| YouRockHarder chapter 10 . 7/30/2016
Well good for him to finally work up the nerve to ask her on a date, and good for her that she questioned it at first, make him sweat!
It was interesting to watch Ranma's character morph over the last few chapters from a jerk in total control to the unsure boy in love we all got to know from the cannon. Can't wait to spend a little time alone with these two! I know this story's already finished, but I hope to see a little more fire from Akane, and not just a totally level-headed woman. I have the benefit of reading on to see, though, so I will!

A www, I wanted more time with Ranma than Ryoga, but it was worth it to hear Ukyo tell him that she was a chef and knew how to "chop things up." Haha, priceless!
Was it so wrong that the whole time Ranma dragged Akane into the water I was worried about her sunglasses? :)
