|Reviews for Desperately Seeking Ranma|
| Ellen Kuhfeld chapter 1 . 3/17
I've already favorited and followed your work. I've read it twice, and I'm halfway through the third reading. Different things stand out on re-reading something, of course, but this third reading has handed me an unexpected surprise: Onkra. Not the person, the NAME. It's perfect - it's a name that could be a human name, it can be an alien name, and there are no problems in pronouncing it. But a Duck Duck Go search barely finds any. There's an Onkra Onkra on Facebook, but half the people there are aliens anyway.
It's important for a writer to use the right names. You get the gold medal on that one.

Almost seven years since your last update of this series, and a year since you last rote in your blog. Hope that your life outside of writing is progressing. Can't be the pot calling the kettle black, since I retired and stopped writing (but not given up on reading!)

I love this story so very much. I'll need to review each chapter on my next re-read. I hope you're doing well.
The cancer reveal was very believable. Genma's despair was a very reasonable reaction. His oldest friend escaped death for the moment, only through magical aid. Looking forward to the day that Ms. Aoyama and Azumi Ito are in the same room.

okay...so i've gotten this far before deciding to call it a quits, the idea was interesting, but your chapters are so long that it's become a chore just to read one, it's actually suggested for people who write and publishes novels to have chapters between 5K and 10K words or else you start losing readers, also another thing that has me quitting this story is the fact that you can't keep to a single storyline but instead seems to be running multiple storylines within a single chapter, hell i have no idea what Akane and Xian Pu getting into Hollywood even has to do with your main storyline, to me it feels like you're running multiple storylines in a single chapter JUST to say you can have long chapters but long chapters do not mean better, it just means more work for the reader to read plus your 'side story's' which i will state due to them affecting the main stuff is NOT a side story and that have actually been longer then a number of novels i've read for and the last one literally took me hours just to read it X_X

Just reread the whole story, again. As I believe I have mentioned before, it is better written, and more entertaining than many other works that I paid money for. Pixelwriter, I do hope that whatever life has thrown at you that has kept you from continuing this story gives you a break, and that the muse which drove you to start it, comes back. Thank you again for your gift to us all.

Soo...are you going to every write one additional 50-word chapter stating that this story is abandoned, or are you just going to leave it as an edifice to languorousness? Maybe even just update the story description to "Discontinued"? I mean, there's been no update in all-but 6 years. While the record of a story going between updates on this site is something over 10 years, I'm not seeing you ever doing anything with this story ever again.
Just let us know you're done with DSR so we can stop checking it every 6 months to see you've done squat with it. The yearly updates in your description is just, well, pointless and kinda pathetic really. We get it. Life happened, and you've lost both time and interest. Just admit it and move on, please, so we can as well rather than stringing us along with false hope and lies of continuation.

There's been no update to DSR in all-but six years. While the record of a story going between updates on this site is something around ten years, I'm not seeing you ever doing anything with this story ever again. Just let us know you're done with DSR so we can stop checking it every six months to see you've done squat with it. The yearly updates in your description is just, well, pointless and kinda pathetic really.
Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed this story. It's probably *the best* Ranma 1/2 fanfic on this site, and one of the better fanfics on this site across all the various properties. But for God's sake, you've been saying for _years_ that you plan to continue DSR. It's time to either update, or shut it down for good.
We get it. Life happened, and you've lost both time and interest. Just admit it and move on, please, so we can as well rather than stringing us along with false hope and lies of continuation.

I don’t often review stories, it seems a little bit disingenuous if one is not a writer. I would like to post my appreciation for the fun I had this fanfic. I especially liked the development of Nabiki’s character and the relatively serious treatment of “Magical Girls”. In any case, I had many hours of reading enjoyment from this, and needed to express my sincere gratitude.

This story is awesome! Can't wait for more, this is my third reread!

this story is great

"I just thought of something, do portals cause problems with film?"
"No. They don't seem to really affect anything. Some really sensitive electronics apparently get a little upset, but only for a while. They're safe."

4th reread for me, lovely work with excellent characterization. I tend to stumble across a reference to DSR in some other work and get a desire to go over it again.
| Spokavriel chapter 98 . 10/16/2021
Please still be writing, after going so far establishing so much to grow it would be a crime for the story to be stopped here. Happosai hasn't even made an appearance. Luna is still stuck with a psychopath in the same brain. The rest of Nabiki's college has to play out. And with that side story I havent gotten to yet I'm wondering how Miss Summers would react to Mermaids ;)

That outbreak Napalm containment seems a perfect recruitment situation for these people. Why wouldn't the researchers still be alive to keep making these agents for them to use?
All they had to do is leave enough skeletons in the right places and every person they want to recruit becomes a ghost. Give it a year or two they could even transfer people they wanted in less ideal situations to the facility before the event.
There is only one more attached chapter posted, and its been 5 years since that update. I hope the Xander piece isn't the only thing to continue it after this.
Might need Ami wit Nabiki off world as well after some practice...

Why did they take the cars off the vehicle transporter before going in the perimeter gate? Didn't that just increase the use of fuel and manpower needed to bring the caravan that last distance? Was there something about the gate to make it a bad idea to bring in loaded? A top threshold (exceeding gate clearance) or too much weight for the driveway?
Your Stunt is doable but beyond a little nuts. Something you would need for the sake of the location if nothing else is a stunt driver that stays in the car. Because even after the sequence ends you can't leave it uncontrolled. And you REALLY cant surrender control when someone is going to jump from it. without someone in there to counter balance as she jumps the car becomes completely unpredictable and a hazard to all especially those on the bike not to mention the filming crew. Even with KITT from Knight Rider it would be difficult. And you'd have to get kitt to agree to being blown up... Not an easy negotiation.
Unlike your in story stunt coordinator the only part of this Stunt I haven't seen done practically and safely is someone getting out of the car while on 2 wheels and subsequently attacking that balance jumping from the car in that position. the physics to compensate for would suggest its improbable without some mechanical assistance in maintaining the balance. The car mounted in position pulled on a trailer as well as a bike on another truck to let the camera truck be close enough to not see the wheels aren't spinning. still splicing to get the full sequence.
