Such a shame. You said you were going to see this story through to the finish but haven't.
Actually I tend to like cross-over stories between these two settings. It gives Ranma a chance to interact with people that understand his situation (to some degree).

u could have futaba embrace his female side, and fall for ranma in either sex, and visca versa for ranma. that ranma likes futaba female, but also the male. because of being part female.

This is off to a good start. Are you going to pair up Ranma and Futaba? I'm not sure how I feel about that if you do but Futana seems to have issues too. Mabye Haruka knows a bi girl to introduce to Ranma. And a dip in the waters of spring of drowned boy would let Misaki deal with Futaba better.
Please update if you are still alive.

Interesting start to the story. Are you going to continue it? And with how many changes just having Ranma involved introduces can you actually follow much of the narrative? I'd really like Ranma Nabiki. And who knows maybe there will be other Komatane students changing thanks to Jusenkyo before accidents cause transfusions to lead to gender confusion.

You skipped over the parts where you should be developing the characters. Simply stating 'and Ranma no longer minds being female, k?' really weakens the story.

You’ve got an interesting plot but you are going way too fast. You are showing ranma more mature but you are not showing how he changed. About the fight wih Colone and Shampoo you should give the details. How did Ranma and Nabiki the "Ice Queen", the one who made Ranma's live more troublesome than anyone else Became friends? It had to be something big and threatening to her family otherwise there is no why she would change like this. Besides what happened to make Ranma go for a revenge plan? So a phone conversation doesn't fill the holes there. All of these could be given as a flashbacks while ranma describing it to Futaba or someone else.
About the pairing I would go for Ranma / Futaba and Misaki/ Futana. Here is how I see it happening-
Ranma would be only one in Futaba's eyes who understands how he feels. As Futaba changes whenever he is excited and he already thinks Ranma-chan hot it will be natural that they will start changing together which will bring them very close. Besides Ranma will help futaba to deal his girl half and after learning about his talent in finghting (it’s showed in the manga that Futaba is really skilled in wrestling) he will start teaching him anything goes. Meanwhile Colone will teach Ranma a technique that will give him full control over his curse and stop him being a water magnet but it will require him to completely accept his girl side. As Ranma will go through his training he can teach Futaba different meditation techniques which will give him control over his condition. While going through all of these their relationship will keep on getting deep and eventually they will fall for each other.
Misaki can be perfectly paired up with Futana. Futana like’s to play and normally she gets any girl she wants. Misaki will be someone who will give her quite a challenge because she has a small crush on Futaba. This will make Futana more interested on her. Slowly with her attempts she (Futana) will win Misaki’s heart after she (Misaki) will be heartbroken by Futaba’s rejection.
I hope this will help with your writting

instant curse might be of interest. in teh only other long cross i know, there was some sort of incident that got misaki a transfusion from futaba, which gave her the same problem.

I find things going very well so far. It's cool that Futaba has someone like Ranma to help him deal with his gender changing predicament since Ranma himself knows what it's like to go through such a thing. Looking forward to more of this story.

While both Futaba and Ranma each have a male self-image, I don't see any problem with them both failing to see each other the same way. Each has a very attractive female side.
Futaba can feel isolated from humanity because of his inconstant gender and can view Ranma as the only person on the planet, outside of his family, that can understand him. Given that Ranma is a water magnet, he'll get plenty of opportunities to see Ranma-chan and begin to fall for her.
Actually, I see it as being more yuri than yaoi. Futaba starts to like Ranma-chan, so she starts turning into a girl whenever Ranma-chan appears. The two, as girls, can like each other and start being flirtatious with each other.
Biologically, Futaba's species has to be bisexual in their secondary gender. They *must* be. Otherwise, when their partner also switched gender, they'd lose their own excitement and revert. For reproduction to occur, they must continue being excited and be willing to complete the procreative act in their reversed genders.
Therefore, while Futaba may have internalized the social training against liking guys, Futaba-chan won't have any physical reason to lose attraction to Ranma-chan should she revert to being Ranma-kun. And once he truly accepts that Ranma is always the same person, Futaba should be able to eventually accept being attracted to Ranma in most, if not all, combinations of their genders.
Ranma wouldn't have to overcome much because he wouldn't have to worry about doing anything with Futaba-kun. Futaba-chan is sure to appear before any intimacy occurs. And Futaba, with a male outlook and upbringing, would act and think in a manner that Ranma could understand. It would be easy for him to see Futaba-chan as a girl who isn't a complete, illogical mystery like all the other women in his life. From there, love can bloom.
Even Nodoka could be swayed by the fact that Futaba-chan is guaranteed in the bedroom. It could never be Ranma-chan with Futaba-kun, so Ranma would still be manly in that arena.
All it would take would be a little self-deception on their parts and I can see Ranma/Futaba working quite well.
And it's a hell of a lot less self-deception than Akane's belief that she's a great cook.

This looks interesting.
| Wonderbee31 chapter 2 . 11/6/2006
Hmm, looking more interesting, and personally, I'd like to see Nabiki be brought in, and her be the match for Ranma, she'd be good for him overall if she could just get over her own moneylust.
