I was wondering if you had any plans to continue this? if you don't, I'm certainly not going to bother you about it further, but this is one of my favorite fics and the idea that it might be forgotten is a sad one, so I'd love to have some closure or something. I really love seeing how Ranma interacts with the titans, Kasumi's relationship with Cyborg is absolutely adorable, and it's almost always awesome when Terra gets saved from petrification. And Ryoga and Jinx are great together(though I do kinda wonder how it'll turn out farther down the line with Kid Flash now).

i'm only passingly familiar with the teen titans, but the noion of being taken over by ones past incarnation is absolutely terrifying

I'm really enjoying this story and hope to see an update eventually. It's well written and the chapters aren't short which is always a plus in my book.

at first this was kinda awkward with how fast nabiki change and other characters seem to have their points as well but once you started the steps to recover the teen titans you seem to make things feel comfortable but i do have to disagree on how you based some characters skills in fighting i think the only reason cyborg beat mouse was because he was surprised with the horrible mistake he made i think if they fought i would either resolve in them being equal of mouse being more skilled as most of the teen titans end up depending on power instead of skill most of the people ranma fights could possibly beat the a member of the teen titans the only exceptions would be robin because he is pretty skilled and is as good as good as batman is when is comes to adapting to his enemy and the other exception would be raven base on her being insanely powerful and she has a pretty good defense the rest would most likely lose or come out equal as the nerima group are skilled enough to be able get around the rest of the teams power as long as there curses dont activate and they dont let there emotions get out of hand please dont let my nit picking annoy you i really am liking the story after you got comfortable with the story i feel you are doing a pretty good job with keeping everyone in character and i love ranma and teen titans crossovers they can go so well and as a writer i think your doing a good job with making this idea work this idea can so easily go wrong but you a good job with putting this together that i feel you mostly avoided parts that are so bad it makes people want to groin

I love this fic I think it's great & you are doing a great job combining the two series so I hope you don't mind me making a few suggestions for future chapters like
1) a Bat-Family(Robin, Ranma & Nab only*) & a Young Justice, JLA or Teen Titans West team up
2) Ranma develops his/her own powers
3) Pantyhose, Happosai, Kuno, Gosenkugi & maybe Herb join up with Slade while Kodachi teams with Poison Ivy
maybe more adaptations of Teen Titan episodes like
1) Nevermore (season 1 episode 6)
2) Winner Take All (season 2 episode 9)
3) Most of season 4 Raven Prophecy arc
I look forward to future chapters

Yup, a long wait, and then a longer one before I caught up to it in my cue. But a good one. I liked it, and am looking forward to seeing where you go with Nabiki's doom.

Huh, and here I thought your fic was dead. Imagine my surprise when I started checking things and found an update to this lovely story. I just had to spend the last week re-reading it between work & play to get re-acquainted again!
Okay, so. Review.
I love the quality of this story. This chapter, even though it was 17 months after the previous, picked-up right where it left off seamlessly. While it's been years since I've watched Teen Titans, I remember it quite well and the events in your story match well with the show (and as a side note: I am so happy that the show seems to be more popular than the comic - I never cared for the comic), Events are progressing, and I greatly enjoy seeing the Ranma-brand chaotic spin the stories take.
I do have a couple of concerns, though. First, this chapter seemed to put a pat finish on one of the most interesting aspects of the Ranma-verse: Putting an end to the fiancee-brigade. Almost all of the chaos and fun found in Ranma 1/2 revolved around not Ranma, but the people bound to him. It was this chaos that allowed the various involved parties (fiancees, suitors, various challengers) to develop as characters and become stronger for it. With the end of the fiancee brigade, it seems we're seeing the ending of the Ranma 1/2 aspects to the story beyond the "adopted characters" of Ranma, Kasumi, and Nabiki/Raven. I can't help that the story may become less for that. Especially with Ryoga no longer being such a powerful challenger to push Ranma to become stronger, and his fear of cats being apparently eliminated (and, you know, the whole curse thing).
The second concern goes to something I mentioned above: Various challengers. Ranma 1/2, the manga, took place over the span of a single year. In that year, Ranma progressed from being a good martial artist to someone who could go toe-to-toe with a half-powered Saffron (with a ton of luck and help involved for that win). From what I've read in this story, Ranma was taken out of Nerima fairly early - after the introduction of Happosai but before the introduction of Pantyhose Taro. This means that Ranma would know upon leaving the Chestnut Fist and the Hiryu Shoten-Ha, as well as being highly resistant to heat due to the Phoenix Pill.
Now, since the manga took place over a single year (shown by the grade all the characters start and end at), then the show (up to where we are in early season 3 with the end of the Betrothed story) would have taken place over several months, which your story fairly accurately reflects. However, Ranma hasn't improved at all in this time period. By this time in the manga he'd have learned the Moko Takabisha at the very least, giving him not only a limited medium/long-range attack but would also have increased his ki (which seems to be Achilles Heel you've given Ranma to not make him seem over-powered).
This goes back to challengers. In the manga, Ranma had a new challenger every other day, if not multiples per day. Some came not for him but for others, such as Pantyhose Taro, the Dojo Destroyer, etc. (just going with the earlier inductees and not later ones like Mariko and Rouge, which we wouldn't have gotten to yet time-wise). Ranma learned the Moko Takabisha from reverse-engineering Ryoga's Shi Shi Hokodan. Ranma learned the Umi-Sen Ken techniques (yes, techniques - it's not JUST an "invisibility" technique) due to Ryu Kumon's mastery of the Yama-Sen Ken techniques (which if we're even considering Ranma canon, Ryu Kumon would be coming for Ranma irregardless of who or where he is).
What I'm trying to say, is that Ranma (and by proxy the Titans) are too weak. If Ranma grows, they grow. And while I understand that this is a Titan-central fic, I can't help but believe that the ghosts of the Saotome past would still catch-up with Ranma if this fic is to be anything more than a "Ranma Transplant" fic.
Don't get me wrong, I love this story and I can hardly wait to see what direction you're going (I'm just long-winded). Especially with Brother Blood (he's one of two of the only characters I can think of that liked more in the comics than the cartoon just because he was far more evil in the comics, and the cartoon seemed to suffer from the sanitation the writers had to do to Raven's backstory and replacing Brother Blood with Slade - being the other comic character I liked better as Deathstroke the Terminator) targeting Jusenkyo.
