Just finished reading Lonely Souls yet again. I sincerely hope that you'll be able to find your way into finishing this wonderfully convoluted story. *chuckles* I had a BLAST rereading it!

One of your better fics. It's a damn shame you stoped working on it.

Chapter 18: Compliance? Now WHY does that word ring some bells? I seem to remember a rather fun movie where a ship's computer/AI used that word. ::chuckles::
Between you, me and the gate post, Akane should have remained “un-cookie-cuttered” and all. No Kimiko, no neo Akane—although Kimiko's a bit easier for me to “take” than Cookie Cutter Akane. ::shrugs:: That's just me, though.
All in all, however, a VERY nice chapter. ::nods::
Aria is a tad spoiled, yes? ::chuckles::
::blinkblinks:: Kaeru? Ataru's twin that disappeared after he, the twin, died?
Last one to the planet gets no sex? ::foflmao::
Chapter 19: Yoiks! Talk about an over abundance of spirals! ::laughs:: Hoo boy! This just gets better and better!
::eyes all the gals:: Well, I only hope Ataru has the stamina. ::grins, ducks, and runs::
::snickers:: “Poor” Happosai...
::fol:: “poor” Mùsi/Mu Tsu/Mousse!
::rofl:: I -LOVE- that welcome sign!
Chapter 20: "Three Terrans, a Yehisrite and a Yizibajohei walk into a bar...” ::runs like hell::
::eyes the next sign:: Wow... That Shadow Planet is quite the helpful place, ain't it?
::fol:: Kusun tears ::rofl::
Two groups are after Tsue-san? Oh dear. Dare I surmise that there might be more groups running around trying to muck things up?
::eyes Naho-san's scars:: Ouch...
Setting Ataru's memories straight after Tag Race One instead of Tag Race Two? ::tries to remember:: Is this something that was already written about? Or will this be a possible “What if THIS happened instead” tale?
::chuckles as eyes Happosai and Nodoka:: Well, who's got the smelling salts?
::sniffles:: Awww... I done reached the end of the story...
| Rose1948 chapter 17 . 12/18/2011
Ouch. those poor kids. poor Ranma. Holy Shit.
| Rose1948 chapter 16 . 12/17/2011
Chapter 14: Geeze... Asagaya Isao is one sick-sad SOB, yes?
Wow... Talk about from bad to worse and back to bad. Poor Ataru.
Akane just DOESN'T get a clue, does she? Nothing sinks in. ::shakes head::
::blinks at Akane's take-down by Katsunishiki :: Well, I can't say as I'm surprised. I'm not sure if Takahashi-san realized just how negative Akane's actions could be/would be interpreted and all but Akane reminds me all to negatively of some abusive bullies I knew IRL.
Chapter 15: I like! Yay for Dream Walker! I enjoyed THIS one! ::nodnods::
Chapter 16: ::blinks, eyes the Akane Double and Chikage:: Wow... talk about wheels within wheels.
Uh oh... I don't think this Elle is gonna like what happens to her once Ataru and Ranma track the biotch down. ::cackles::
| Rose1948 chapter 13 . 12/16/2011
Chapter 11: Yeesh! I've had a few "morning afters" but none like that! ::shudders::
Chapter 12: Soun... I sure never expected him to be such a brainless maroon. ::chuckles:: Oh well. At least he got his. Now if only Akane will get a clue. Or an ass-kicking. Or something. She never was anything more than an abusive bully in my eyes.
Wow. Denial just keeps going round and round and round the drain, doesn't it? Flows up hill, down hill, north, south, east, west, in, and out. ::laughs:: Kuno, Tendo, Lum & Company... ::shakes head:: Sheesh. Poor Ataru. Poor guy never seems to get a break. Just about like no one ever gave Ranma the benefit of the doubt in the manga.
Chapter 13: Shinshi and Yotsuba. Oh lordy. ::snickers:: Puppy Love! It's also not fair. All the cuties get partnered off before I even get a chance to fantasize! ::laughs::
Good Grief! How much more can Welcome House take? ::fol::
| Rose1948 chapter 11 . 12/15/2011
Wow... Chapter 9 was a rather INTENSE psychedelic nightmare! Chapter 10 was an insight into the WHY of it. A bit. All I can say is those two poor kids. Meaning Ataru and Ranma.
Too bad Soun didn't get his wake up call when all this happened. He's even more dense than I imagined he could be. ::shakes head:: Yoiks.
Another nice two chapters.
| Rose1948 chapter 9 . 12/15/2011
Just finished reading Chapters 7, 8 and 9. As Kasumi would say, Oh my! ::chuckles:: Once again I'm struck by how I do NOT have to suspend belief while reading your story. Yes, there's magic and yes, there's seemingly impractical happenings—whether in martial arts or psychology or even physiology.
I'm a bit sad for Ataru. I, too, never got to truly know my own grandmother so my heart aches in response.
I know there are those you there who, to paraphrase "South Park" will holler "OMG! You locked Ranma!" Oh well. I've read a few locked fanfic and enjoyed them. You've done some nice work here. Yeah, it's only my humble opinion, but it's MY humble opinion. They're entitled to theirs and I'm entitled to mine. To them I say, "Nyah!"
I'm sure one of these years I'll catch up on what you've written. ::chuckles::
Thanks for sharing.
| Rose1948 chapter 6 . 12/14/2011
Just finished Chapters 4, 5 and 6. Poor Tofu. ::chuckles:: He just can't get a break when it comes to the ladies, can he?
I noticed the similarities as well as the differences between this story and "Phoenix From The Ashes." I also like how you've handled Ranma's single-mindedness as well as his obvious cluelessness when it comes to certain subjects. I can picture Genma doing just that to control his son. After all, it was glaringly apparent, to me, when I read the manga.
Oooo! Fanfic where Nabiki was not only a martial artist but was also better than "Princess" Akane! Where? Are they on FF dot net? Titles and/or search parameters, please! ::laughs::
I love finding older stories I can "sink into" and all. Thanks so much for sharing.
| Rose1948 chapter 3 . 12/13/2011
Wow. Reading one of your older stories and I have to say that I like it. Quite the insight into a lot of things I thought about but never before saw in print. You said my take on a few of them. Granted, all I read of Ranma, aside from fanfic that is, is the manga.
To bad about the Deadly Nightshade's story "The Truth #1: Ranma the Girl" disappearing from the net. I think I would have liked to read it. ::chuckles::
Thanks for sharing such an interesting story.
| Kolgrimmur Bectelson chapter 5 . 4/17/2011
Hello. I'm currently reading your story and while I usually don't enjoy lock fics I have decided to give it the benefit of the doubt due to the unusual crossover.
I must say though that the likelihood of my continuing has gone way, way up due to the inclusion of Chris De Burgh's 'In a Country Churchyard" at the very beginning of this chapter. After all, any CDB fan can't be all bad, neh? :)!
Unfortunately I myself am a very poor writer so an insightful review that might help you to improve your storytelling skills exceeds my ability to produce.
Good luck and remember, have fun.

this is probably the best ranma fic i've ever read not 2 mention one of my favorite ranma becomes a girl fic, however it seems you don't really describe what ranma wears through all but 1 maybe 2 parts of the fic the 1st being when she was actually shopping for clothes & the other i can't quite remember. I'm finding myself curious if ranma will accept her feline side like ataru has his instead of just blatantly denying it since ranma's very life is all about ADAPTATION & so far she hasn't tried at all.
I'm finding myself a little curious as 2 why there's no courting of ranma by ataru at all unlike in the original where he at least brought her some earrings yet it seems in this version ranma & ataru have an almost platonic relationship that seems to just jump levels 4 no reason from liking each other, to boyfriend/girlfriend then suddenly to engaged? seems a little bland & spontaneous 2 me.
I'm hoping this fic hasn't gone completely dead as it's a great fic & should really be finished as it deserves it 4 all the effort that's gone into it.

Would love to know if things are okay with you these days, mediaminer doesn't really show any more udates than FF does, so not quite sure where to find the latest and greatest, or even if you're still writing these days. Also I used to follow the blog but that really hasn't been updated since you moved back home to Canada again. As much as we like your fics, some of us also like to think we've grown to know the man behind those works over the years by reading them... Just letting us know that you're okay would be a big relief!
As for the fic...I know you'll try to get back to it when you are ready and able to. Thanks for the wealth of story you've shared with us already!
