Author has written 7 stories for Ranma.
I hadn't posted anything here in close to ten years. I recently saw The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and that rekindled a love of anime in me again. I ended up finding a lot of old sketches and reference material that I had set aside for future fanfics and decided to give this another shot.
Right now I'm going to keep things humble. I will try to finish The Traveler (now with one less 'L' than before). While not my strongest fic, I have to admit to myself that it's the easiest one to finish, as I have plenty of exit points that I can take without sacrificing the overall story. If I still have steam left after that, I'll try to determine whether I can actually do anything with PIG. I have scenes planned but no transition to get there.
Finally, The Adventures of Chibi-Ranma (and Chibi-Ryouga), which might need a complete rewrite if I decide to take it up again. This is by far the hardest fic for me to write because my original plan was to stay within the issues of the manga, so nothing could be added that would be permanently damaging to the continuity presented afterward. That, and I have a hard time coming up with actual plot ideas for them. Vignettes seem to be all I can muster for those two rascals.
I will post artwork for my stories over at my homepage (really just a deviantart account setup for this purpose). Some things are much easier to explain via drawings.
If you enjoy my fics, please leave a review. If you don't enjoy them, go ahead and say why. I have thick skin and I would want to make the stories I'm currently working on better.
I'm also more than willing to check out suggestions for interesting Ranma 1/2 stories. I miss the vibrancy that FFML used to have and I'm sad to find it virtually gone now, with no replacement that I can tell. Where do people go to talk about Ranma? Does such a place even exist anymore? Is it all Naruto now?
I favorite stories for 2 reasons:
1) To make it easier to find when reading it on my mobile device
2) Because it is a genuinely good story that I wish to keep on hand or give some recognition so others might find it.
So don't be surprised if you see a few stories in my favorites list that seem to not fit in: they might be removed once they're read through or I've given up on reading them.
Now for some big news!
The Old FFML Archive can be yours today!
Alright, so I've been told that these links might not be up for too long (since Megaupload and other sites keep files based on popularity):
Old FFML Archive, raw maildir: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=SK3FZHTU
If you don't know what maildir is, chances are you definitely do not want that.
Old FFML Archive, much nicer mbox format:
This one you can at least import into email clients that support the mbox format, such as Eudora, Thunderbird, and a few others (it's a fairly standard format).
In case you're wondering what the FFML was, head on over to http://ffmlsearch.inklesspen.com/
125k emails. Yowza. Never going to read through all that, obviously. Be sure to thank the guy running that site, by the way.
The new FFML (much deader, but still alive, I suppose): http://www.chez-vrolet.net/pipermail/ffml/
If you're interested in keeping a little bit of fanfiction history alive and safe from being lost, please download and make sure to tell others to do so as well :)
Note: if you would like a copy of the archive but need it in a specific mail format, let me know and I might be able to convince the hired help to do something about it.
