|Reviews for Mirrors Multiplied, Original Flavor|
| PepperJAQ chapter 10 . 5/7/2004
chapter 10 thus far have i read.
this is one of the best/worst fics i have ever read. if you were doing this seriously then i'd have to ask you what you have been smoking. but this is a work that you have done purely for fun, so instead it comes acrossed as a wonderful rollercoaster of snazziness that is bent on crack.
the only real comment i have is "... ;;"
anyhoo, i shall continue to read this strange yet satisfying nut fest of a story, then i shall move on to your rewritten version.

Hmm. I can't say that I much enjoy this kind of self-gratuitious, 'my way or the highway', major egotrip stuff. If one can't keep proper respect and tone of the original work one should write original fiction instead. This is just way to disrespectful. I've liked some of your other stories, but this wasn't quite up my alley, sorry.
And no, I haven't insulted you personally. I'm not sure about the extent to which others have insulted you and if they went overboard they should be ashamed of themselves, but doing this kind of 'repent, if you don't agree with me 'ye shall be cast to the darkest pits and I'm obviously above any guilt in the matter' tirade makes it seem like you draw everyone over one row instead of treating them as individuals, with different views. Heck, I saw a comprehensive post on the mailing list which went into detail to prove that the so-called KOTTF idiocy had been completely inactive for 3-4 years, so calm down a bit. If someone reads your story and doesn't like it, it's not because they want to 'hunt you down', it's because they are new readers who saw an author link to your work. Oh, well...
Shampoo's revenge was really funny in any case so as long as you do non-self-insertion fics you should be ok. I hope you continue that story, though Shampoo herself is also far from a saint herself, so I don't get the idea that she shouldn't be one of the people on the receiving end, or Nabiki for that matter. She's arguably far more genuinely evil than Akane, who at least has some minor redeeming qualities (She generally means well, is self-sacrificing in life-or-death-situations and has such extreme feeling of inadequacy that she's in constant mental pain).
Oh well, there I go rambling on again about me being constantly confused why people generally chose one or two particular characters to dislike instead of ranking them in terms of morals and deeper characteristics. :(

I can't tell ya how to improve cause there were no obvious errors.

I'm not sure if you still write, although I would hope so, seeing as how I would really like to see an ending to Otaku Three ;). If you do, I want to thank you. You were one of the authors that inspired me to get off my ass and contribute, and I was very sorry to hear about the hurt inflicted upon you by such idiotic people. It has seemed fairly simple to me; if you don't like a story, stop reading it. If you want pure canon, buy the manga. That some people have problems with these relatively simple concepts (relative to using velcro) is frankly a bit unsettling. I remember reading in one of your works, though I can't remember which, an author's note about why you write stories where things go right. Where you mentioned that you strived for happy endings because you'd seen enough darkness in real life to last you. While my pains have not been as great as the ones you described, I do understand, and I was moved deeply by your comments. I hope that the ignorant should not keep you away from your keyboard overlong, as it would be a crime to keep such a soul as yours away out of spite. I eagerly anticipate more of your work, and wish the best for you in life.

JRB may have just gone nuts on the idea of
a non-corrupt government because government
is the new religion. They are claiming all
the moral ground they can and designing
the way everyone lives there lives. The state
is becoming a religion and people are
treating it that way. You either have
faith in it or you don't and anyone who
doesn't believe the way you do is obviously
a heathen that you have to educate so they
can see the right path. Sound abought right?
Attacking someones religion is akin to
attacking someones basis for their view on
reality. So they get defensive and then
extremely offensive. Especially if you say
something that makes them want to agree with
you. Logic has always been the foe of
religion. That's why the church/state would
prefer to keep most people ignorant. Do you
really believe that it's that hard to fund
education? The ways schools could improve
at low to no cost are numberless.
OK apparently that set off a long rant
in me too. I have no problem with the
idea of a non-corrupt government but it's
way off in the future from what we have now.
Well that's one way to solve the jumping
back and force between A and B. *grin*
It's now a libertarian US? Cool.
Let me guess Ranco is becoming infested
by the force? *grin*
Ranma captured by Nerv and Ranco abought
to learn why the disease she holds at bay
I want an update! More!
It's been half a year. Shirley you have more?

Great bit with Kami-sama explaining why evil will lose.
The bit with Nabiki was understandable but a bit
over the top. It reminded me a lot of the speech
given in terminator two abought women creating
life and men basically just there to destroy it.
You did put in that most truth begins in generalities
so it did ameliorate it a bit. I would guess it
would take a lot to get through to Nabiki so overkill
was the name of the game.
"It was Kasumi's quiet conclusion that Ayeka wanted her
brother to get married soon." LOL. Well you have to admit
Kasumi is right, just not in the way she thinks. *grin*
I like the Star Wars crossover. I have to remember that
technique for denying you're a spy. It's funny and
Nice work on the fight between future/past versions of
the Tenchi crew.

"as two demon huntresses and one very
anxious to help Nuku Nuku lit into
the dark servitors with fury and
skill unknown in anything not
fighting to have Ranma in her life."
Have I mentioned lately I love your phrasing?
Tatewaki Kuno looked toward the sky and pronounced. "The vengeance of
Heaven is slow but sure..." It must be the end of the world.
Tachi was right abought something!
LOL. Ryoga taking the part of the beast and Grey working
as a barely adequate war god with the worst possible
"RYOGA HIBIKI! PREPARE TO DIE!" LOL.
What goes around comes around.
Great bit with Urd. Absent minded-ly fondling
and marrying Ranma while working things out. *hehehe*
I wanted a little more on Ryoga's death tho' Something
very evil and ironic.
So if I put in enough reviews you'll write more chapters?
| dogbertcarroll chapter 16 . 8/15/2003
I have no Idea who the lettered girls are.
ABC. *Shrug* What series are they from? It's
a good scene but I feel like I missed the
best part of it.
Hehehe. Masaki Ninja!
LOL. I love the branches from the wishing sword.
I just wish they had kept writing. A couple of
chapters each just isn't enough. That was
some top quality work.
"The Sky, the Earth, and the pager have called! Summoning forth the
high school babe! The Greatest Warrior Maiden! Ranko Saotome, 17 years
LOL. Where in the hell did you come up with that one from?
She remained still for just a moment, then glomped
onto him with a power and energy to make facehuggers
from the movie Alien seem noncommittal.
LOL. You sure know how to turn a phrase.
Great bit with Akane. It does fit her rather well
in most stories if a bit less but still pretty
accurate for the the cannon as well.
| dogbertcarroll chapter 15 . 8/15/2003
I know who Ranma turned into, but who did Shampoo
turn into? E-mail me!
A wish granting item that allows you two free tries
that automatically reset after a couple of minutes
before you make your permanent wish? What god was
feeling generous that day?
"I thought you said you'd taken Akane's cooking to
*dispose* of it! Not bomb civilians!"
LOL. That was fantastic!
The Mooncave? A weird batmanesque type of Sailor Moon.
Well this is the universe for it.
If this is your therapy then develop some more mental
problems cause I want more chapters! This stuff is great.
A little dark is good for a story. Keeps it from becoming
too one sided.*grin*
| dogbertcarroll chapter 14 . 8/15/2003
Are you sure that's just an actress playing Akane
and not someone demoniacally possessed by the real
You got the movie magic idea from Terry Pratchett
Nice exit from the fourth wall!
The bit abought relationships was brilliant.
Serena as a Valley Elf? OK a Valley Girl although
she reminds of a Valley Elf a little more.
LOL great Pool to fall into. Makes you wonder
if the Mirror was really trying to kill him
or just disguising it's intentions. After all
if everyone sees it as cursed they are a lot
less likely to abuse its abilities.
*grin* It's abought time a hero realized that
saving the bad guy just insured more deaths.
Great chapter as always!
| dogbertcarroll chapter 13 . 8/15/2003
. That's a truly disturbing idea.
LOL and in a Port-A-Potty no less.
*grin* and of course Kirk knows these
events always drop him in the thick of it.
So he knows they are going to run into the
LOL. Ryoga and his time traveling port-a-potty.
Always there when someone needs to use it and
are inclined to not be too neat.
Hey! You're suppose to break the fourth wall not
build a bloody revolving door in it! *hehehe*
Great finale for the chapter.
| dogbertcarroll chapter 12 . 8/15/2003
Great scene with Kasumi waking up.
I've always loved the computer Brain
analogy people use for these things.
I liked Yosho's speech. Well written.
LOL. Genma is disappointed and Kirk is
disobeying every possible law including
some of the nature of the universe to
get Ranma back. I love it.
| dogbertcarroll chapter 11 . 8/15/2003
Yes, I have finally stamped upon enough copyright toes by now
that I could be sued into the thirty first and one half century!
Not possible. I'm sure we have scheduled killing all the lawyers
for the next centennial celebration.I have it penciled in on my
Yes! You brought in the Tenchiverse. The four hundred years
of darkness and singing did bring Ryoko to mind. Of course
she was probably reciting bawdy limericks but its close
I don't know that I would have behaved much different then Tenchi.
I might have thought explaining that the person was out of time
and disrupting the time stream and had to be returned to the
present first tho'
Nice work with the Star Trek crossover. I can see Kirk as
her father rather easily.
LOL. Cuteness as a destructive force!
I like the Usagi replaces Akane timelines. Unless they are
Usagi with Akane's personality timelines. Those pretty much
