Man, i don't know how i found your this but i am glad that i did. Even it was not finished, it was worth reading.
The way you interpreted the characters was really good, especially Ranma and Kasumi.
The apparently slowly recovery of Ranma and the apparently begging of a relationship between Akane and Ranma, kinda remind me The Silent Horse written by MZephyr.
Too bad there isn't more :/

"Oh well THAT's interesting."
... What happened to Ryoga, tho... And you know what? this... is somehow leading towards platonic Ranma Akane,.. if that's the pairing you want... put some romance in there! XDD I guess the star gazing does count as love... thing... and the date later... and the dinner... okay nevermind what I said. Nice job! I still want to see Ryoga... What happens now? Why did he want to kill Ranma? and what about the vision Ranma had...? and are you REALLY going to let Ranma go from his depression THAT easily? I'll stay tuned! XD

I'm getting more and more happy about choosing to read this fic. 8D
| mrawgirl09 chapter 5 . 11/18/2008
THAT is my reaction right after reading the first few paragraphs.
flesh sliding down throat? Ew. GROSS. Isn't that supposed to choke you? Medieval Korean women used to do that when surrounded... or when they didn't have the small silver knife ready for suicide with them. I heard it's NOT a very nice way to go... GREAT. NOW I'm imagining Ranma with blood flowing down from his mouth... EW. Again. URGH.
*snort* Crickets ... CD deal.. where the hell do you get these ideas! XD
| mrawgirl09 chapter 4 . 11/18/2008
Right. you've GOT TO stop scaring me like that. Seriously. GOD. I was like, WHAT THE HELL DID RYOGA JUST BEAT THE SHIT OUT OF RANMA WITH HIS CLASSMATES OF WHAT THE F IS GOING ON until I've read the part where he was asking for Akane... But then does that mean that Ryoga was one of the bullies...? Then why does he want to kill Ranma?Surely he isn't THAT evil... I mean, EVERYONE portrays him as sweet innocent, lost boy. who knows a lot of destructive martial arts...I'll wait and see...
| mrawgirl09 chapter 3 . 11/18/2008
Heh. I like this.. A lot, actually. XD I'd LOVE it if it had any pairing... preferably Ranma Ryoga... especially after THAT / happening... Oh well.. I still like it a lot.. I wonder why Ryoga wants to kill Ranma... hmm I don't think he'll try to kill Ranma when he's all pathetic like that... would he? Really well done, I'm anticipating to read the rest! XD

I just happened to come upon this while browsing and was intrigued by how long you've been writing this and constantly updating it through the years. The plot hook in the story description intrigued me, but your altaverse method of introducing Ranma as a victimized mute in the first chapter captivated me. It's refreshing even after all these years of reading Ranma fics to stumble upon an original story like this.
I think your pacing to this story is fine so far as the events you've portrayed up to this point (chp 2) deal with character development which is fine for fast moving sequences in your prose. The characterization is perfectly fine too, due to the fact that this is your own crafted universe and an alternate revision of the canon material. I like how you've portrayed the mute and emotionally scarred (fig/liter.) Ranma, as you're attempting to go beyond the flat, slapstick mannerisms people love to conveniently put in. I look forward to see how his progression goes, and anxious to see if it gets darker and at the least more serious.
Another note so far, although I'm not sure if it's you or not. I noticed some of the scene breaks don't exactly transition? Perhaps did you have line breaks that you inserted in your word processor that didn't make it over when uploaded to ? Because I had the exact same problem too with my own stories when I upload .txt files.
Finally, a little note at least to this point in terms of the writing mechanics involved. Some of the interactions between characters were confusing because you mixed one character's actions or dialogue with another character's in the same paragraph. Split them up, differentiate them to establish a perspective and point of view for what you're trying to portray in the prose. Perhaps this has been rectified in future chapters, since I'm only on the second one and your latest chapter has been updated literally years later.
Anyway, enjoyed the read and I'm going back to enjoy some more.

I'm so glad you continue your story! This is really the kind of Ranma fanfiction I love. Though, I don't really get the point with the curse and the healing, but, well, in fact I understood lol (my first language is not english...)
Continue it, i can't wait
