Mornings bad. nuff said.
Anything Goes Bacon-lending? Will that be a thing? It should be a thing. Make it a thing!
Kudos to Ranma for finally noticing Nabiki. The fact she felt flattered? Those comments about taking a strip of bacon off his tab HAD to be her flirting with him.
Aw, more volleyball would have been fun!
Bet his shoe tasted pretty good after he put his foot in his mouth with the whole babies conversation...
Hell, I wanted to give Ranma a hug. That whole bit with not wanting things to change seriously has me rethinking the whole series...I mean, how can I look back at any of the early episodes the same again? It's sad that it took this long for someone to actually consider HIS feelings, for once.
New England pirate ninja? whut
Por Ranma, spinning out. Finally taking time to think about his own wants and needs has got him struggling to find an answer. It's nice to know he actively works to not be the pervert he's accused of being. He could honestly be the least perverted male in the whole of Nerima actually!
Not that drunk? That is a very dangerous place to be Miss Tendo. Letting your guard down, and getting Ranma to lower his? Bad idea...
Wait, HE kissed HER?! How many times has HE been the one to initiate a kiss?! Mostly it's someone else forcing themself on HIM...
...oh, God, they're not gonna... are they...?

Yet another harem story? At least Nabiki seems to be the lead actress this time...
...summary react up ons aside, I have to say that i like the way you seem to be easing into the story. Finally we get the characters to go beyond surface thoughts and feelings to truly LOOK at someone and see that yes, they be messed up!
I've never liked how Nabiki was always so wealth driven to develop a deeper personality, so I'm very impressed at how much she has to alter her way of thinking and acting. Ranma as well, so this has much promise and I hope my tardiness means I can get caught up before a new chapter is released (please forgive me if it feels I'm pushing for new content: I can see it has been some time. Fingers crossed that inspiration hasnt sully evaporated...)
How many of these college students are new oc's? Forgive me, but I'm not very well acquainted with the fandom. The only time I've spent watching the show was many years ago by renting VHS tapes with my dad...and the selection was pretty slim and not very in order...and I haven't read any of the manga...
By the by, I plan on stealing the whole international rules thing for truth or dare for future use! I can't promise I'll credit my sources!

I don't think I've ever read a Ranma story that made me hate Nodoka this much, even while making her a believable character with a certain degree of depth. You have a gift for this.

You have a real knack for writing these side characters/suitors/rivals in a way that highlights how utterly psychotic they are. I hate them in a way that I really have a hard time hating almost any other fanfic characters, even ones who commit sins that are in an objective sense far worse than these. Well done.

So Shampoo and Ukyou can fuck each other behind Ranmas back, but he isn't even allowed to get a kiss on the cheek without them going ballistic?
Here is Ranma who is feeling guilty for kissing Ukyou and confessing that fact directly to Shampoo, and there are Shampoo and Ukyou who have sex with someone who isn't their fiance (someone who they keep chasing and insisting on loving) and they feel absolute no guilt about that whatsoever. Shampoo might claim Amazon nonsense but Ukyou really has no excuse to not feel guilty.
People probably think it's fine because "they are girls so it doesn't count" and "he'll think it's hot" or "they are going be in a harem anyway", but it's really not okay.

| Rebell 01 chapter 14 . 5/5/2022
WOW what a ugly picture. I had a bout of compession for Himura.
| Iron454 chapter 35 . 5/1/2022
Damn... this is really good and needs to continue
| Rebell 01 chapter 3 . 4/20/2022
Wow. Let me guess you are a professionell shrink with a Writing Hobby. This is really good!
| Sly Dragneel chapter 6 . 3/22/2022
If I were Ranma here I would have paralised Himura's legs to fuck with her, see how she plays voleyball then

I want to start by just saying that this is good on both a craft and art level. The next paragraph or two could theoretically be read as critique, but I don't really mean them as such. You sent me on a feels trip I wasn't expecting, and in describing that experience, I mean to compliment you for managing to find this story and tell it, not to suggest that I resent said feels trip. As uncomfortable as it was, it was probably a healthy exorcism of childhood ghosts.
I haven't actually read to a point where I'm 100% certain you won't zig where I expect a zag and end up with a different angle, but at this point I'm fairly certain that Ranma is trans. If I'm wrong, well, you wrote a great internal monologue that felt uncomfortably familiar to me as a trans person. I'm fairly certain I'm not, though.
I wasn't exactly expecting to stumble across a psychoanalysis of my own relationship with gender as mediated by Ranma 1/2. I'm not even sure entirely how to phrase it, but there's something unsettling about seeing the show that gave me the tools to understand I was trans being deconstructed down to the incredible gender prescriptivism that lies at its base. Equally unsetting to see my own internalized transphobia reflected back at me in such a way that I can't deny the role Ranma had in inculcating that internalized transphobia. It's easy to remember my confusion with Canon Ranma's being upset over his "curse" (If they were real, the Chinese Amazons would either run a booming business selling access to that curse and its counterpart or they'd be run ragged trying to chase people off from it the moment anyone found out) than it is to confront the fact that every time Ranma beat himself up over that curse, he was also implicitly beating me up. You kind of cut the middleman out and just show Ranma beating herself up with the exact same things that I internalized.
I have no idea if you meant for this to be read this way. Maybe you just meant to have a dialog about the imposition of gender-roles at all and I'm just misreading you. But I have a hard time imagining someone who could describe the self-alienation of being trans so well not knowing what they were doing. So, yeah, thanks.
Also, I'm adopting Ranma and taking her away from her awful parents. None of us should have ever had to figure this out alone.

This is probably the most interesting, most well-written, and longest fanfic I've ever read, so I sincerely hope you continue updating..
| Sonkuragari chapter 35 . 9/12/2021
First off, I'd like to thank you for rekindling my faith in fanfics. This is very well written and draws the reader in. For example ordinarily I despise OC's however I absolutely adore Rin Ito and the way you made the characters believable and real with depth and isues while still somehow managing to keep them in character is awesome and top-notch. I very much wish to see this story continued. Having said that, I would like to point out that your warnings neglected to mention that this was a Ranma-CHAN fic and combined with the fact that it snuck up on the reader (even with the hints, which honestly just kinda made it slightly worse via buildup and anxiety for certain types of readers who don't care for Ranma-chan fics), was a rude and lousy thing to do.

In TV series like Lost and Twin Peaks, I have always lost interest when things get really weird.
Due to the quality of the writing and the fact that the Ranma universe *is* pretty weird to start with, I can't wait to see where this goes!
Thanks for taking the time to develop and write this!
