Wiow this story is awesome. you are a great writer you captuer the charcters well,like the actually exist.I cant wiat for next part if its as good as rest is going to be soooo sweet. Ilove how you have Akane come out of the closet to Ranma at the begining that really was cool. I was like" oh wow shes gay and told ranma.. fricken awesome." keep up great work

Now you're reminding me of "In Dreams". :D
I already caught that the "Dream Girl" reference was to Ranma, not Akane. So I like the way this went. I did think Akane was taking this a bit too personally, but she IS having trouble coming to trust Ranma as a male, as she normally would. Plus, Ranma's reaction was really heartfelt.
I LOVE Akane's use of the Bakusai Tenketsu. I think I should drop you a PM, I don't want to give too much away, but I had much the same thoughts for my own story.

Well. I must say that is quite far from anywhere I expected this story to go.
Hey, about Ranma's gender pronouns in the scene with the letter from Ukyo…was that an accidental glitch, or was it intentional?
I'm not sure how I feel about creating a rift between Ranma and Akane at this late date, though of course I can't judge for sure until I see how this wraps up. I realize it afforded the opportunity to have Ranma admit how much more natural the dream life felt…but I just worry that it's a somewhat artificial conflict. However, the emotions conveyed there are all quite raw and sincere, so I still dug the scene a lot overall.
Also, Akane being a lesbian and Ukyo being a boy are somehow the result of a disconnect between humanity and the heavens? Hmm.
I noticed more typos in this chapter, but not distractingly so by any means.
It was a fantastic chapter on the whole, with tons of highly entertaining moments. My favorite? "Oh, can I get my AV tapes back when we get to your place, Tendo?" Hilarious. I know some of my comments this time could be considered criticism, but they aren't really meant to be. Reading this story has been a true pleasure so far. Thanks for the update. I can't wait to see the conclusion!

I started skimming a lot when I read the part with akane saying she was gay. Nothing against the concept,even read some yaoi and yuri manga plus watch anime, but I've been into Ranma 1/2 about 7 years, have always loved the cannon couple ranma and akane , but still get uneasy with messing with this series in that way. I never been fond of fanfics with akane liking girls as well a total dislikes of ranma-chan fanfics/ or ranma or akane with some fannon pairing
The only reason I kept reading is because I understand the effort a writer puts into his or her work so I decided to give it a chance rather than just blow it off. I'm still somewhat uneasy about it, but I wait till its done before coming to a final conclusion

This is fascinating. Both in the parallels to the original story, and the subtle differences, even in the dream world. I particularly liked Ranma training Akane (THAT is how you do it, people :D) and the way you clearly applied the Anything Goes concept to real world martial arts and actual styles. And the pigtailed Yuka was pretty cute too. (Can't decide if you were combining Yuka and Sayuri, or just have Yuka put her wavy hair up in a different style)

Oh, man. I am most intrigued. I really want to see how this will all come together. I have a few different ideas of where this is headed, but none that stand out as especially probable. So I shall simply have to wait and see, of course. But I do hope you share the conclusion with us relatively soon!
Thank you for posting this. It's fascinating stuff. And I'm so pleased to see a lesbian Akane who's treated seriously and not as either as an excuse for yuri scenes with Ranma-chan or to dismiss her as some sort of man-hating pervert. That's a rare thing. (Not that I'm at all surprised, given the high quality of your work in general!)

This story is probably one of the most unique on this archive.

It's a shame this isn't going to be finished, but I can understand. It's an interesting premise even if it IS complicated.
