Damn, this is an epic all Ranma 1/2 fans should read. I know it's old as hell but I'm still surprised I haven't heard of it, given there are other stories of this caliber and vintage in the favorite lists of more recent quality authors. This deserves to be up in the ratings near stories like 'Hearts of Ice' or 'The Silent Horse'. It may not be everyone's cup of tea given the dark subject matter, and it seems short by word count, but it packs a hell of a lot in and is worth a read IMO.

This story is heart-breaking, interesting, original, tear-jerking, and unique.

I've had quite mixed feelings about this story since I first read it. I guess I'm going to favorite it, but it's not without reservations. It's pretty brutal stuff in its own way, and the resolution hinges on the healing power of pure, unmitigated hatred. That's quite the message to be sending, no?
On the other hand, the characterization is strong and the story unfolds deliberately and logically. It's like an angst onion; peel back one layer of misery and there's something even crappier underneath. It's definitely not for everyone, but it's a rather fascinating piece of work all the same. Commendable work.

Beautiful. All of it. Emotional, evocative, entrancing... It was very well thought out and executed. I will admit, I read the reveiws. Some of them made me want to smack the people who wrote them. (If you read reviews like I do sometimes, go to the beginning and read them in order. They'll make more sense.)
I like Ryoga. I think he's sweet in his own way, if delusional. However, I think if I ever actually met him I'd castrate him with a rusty spoon, then give him a hug and ask to be friends. There is NO excuse for taking advantage of others. Accidents happen, but what he does goes beyond that.
OOC? Nah. Just a little more delusional than normal.
As for Ranma being the messiah, or whatever people are on about, wake up. This was a wonderful look at how far you can push someone who seems to have no limits when it comes to forgiveness. Beat him, his family, his friends, he'll still try to make it all good. At times it's exasperating, watching him forgive people. And all of that forgiveness really was canon, right there in black and white.
Bi Akane! After all, when it's love, it really doesn't matter. I'm always glad to see these ones. Ranma turns into a girl, yes, but it's still Ranma and that shouldn't intrude on cuddle time. Or more-than-cuddle time, if that's what they're up to...
"Heaven hath no rage like love to hatred turned. Nor Hell a fury like that of a woman scorned." Though in this case, I'm including all abuses, not jsut being turned down.

Not a bad story. It was okay. The epilogue/ending was a little rushed, though.
Ryouga wasn't really OOC... IMHO, he's a jerk. But heck. And I like Ukyou. Sorry about this terrible, short review, but it's freezing cold and I'm tired. :(

You know, I had to review.
I wonder if Miss Fortune and Lady Luck are related? Hahah!
Anyway, on a more serious note, I read your reviews. Some sucked, and, point-blank, were absolutely ridiculous. But so far, I think this sounds like a promising fiction.
The characters SEEM in character so far. Dialogue seems pretty good. I'm already 20, so if seven months had gone by, I wouldn't notice a difference, really. I'd probably put on weight, though! Hahaha!
Ryouga's characterization was challenged in your reviews. So I'll pay close attention to that in the coming chapter. Sorry this review is so short, and please forgive any bad spelling, typos, or grammar mistakes. I'm very tired and my fingers are so cold.

Very sad, sweet, and sick. The pregnancy part was obvious, but that didn't lessen the pure monstrosity of the fact. I was glad it ended happily (as much as it can...) I never liked Ryoga, and now I know I never will (just like Shampoo 1/2 made me love Shampoo, you should read it if u haven't, it is in my favorites. Check my favorites out, I read a lot and I'm very critical about putting fics there. It is the best of
