Hello, and welcome to the webspace where my badly-written fanfiction lives!
Last updated: Sun. 2013/02/09 (A Game Is Fine Too, Harry Potter and the Deeper Sight)
Hinata is too shy for her own good. Ranma is too brash for his. They live in different universes and will never meet. How the heck did they come to be helping one another?
Prologue: In which the Ranma ½ and Naruto universes are made to have more in common than just the Eight-Tailed Beast’s startling resemblance to Pantyhose-taro.
Chapter One: In which the Pools of Sorrow claim their first interdimensional victim, and Ryoga inexplicably does not become a ham sandwich.
Chapter Two: In which Hinata gets a happy surprise amidst a series of horrible ones, and Ranma, Ryoga and Genma meet the Amazons. Alas, not all of the three make a good impression.
Chapter Three: In which Genma is sentenced, Ranma is embarrassed, and Naruto learns not to burst in on girls in the bath… Sort of.
Chapter Four: In progress.
A lot of people have written grossly out-of-character stories wherein Ranma has some sort of sexual encounter with another male. One in particular, the memory of which still makes me ill, was so bad it was basically a rape fantasy. Yecch. I decline to besmirch this page by writing that disgusting so-called story’s vile name here, in hopes of denying it any measure of legitimacy by citation.
In any case, after reading the start of an especially egregious thread (the name of which I shall likewise withhold) on Bast’s Anime Addventure, I wondered if it was possible — purely from a technical standpoint — to achieve such an encounter without involving repugnant material like rape, Ranma developing an implausible taste for males, or similar. I don’t know how well I succeeded, but here is the result.
Chapter One: In which Ranma and Ryoga actually finish a fight, without anybody interfering or Ryoga getting lost. Also, Shampoo gets a seriously overdue reality check.
Chapter Two: In which Ranma does something about his Amazon problems, and hopes desperately that he hasn’t made things worse.
Chapter Three: In which Ranma attempts to demonstrate by immersion just why having a transgender curse really sucks, but it doesn’t quite go as he expects.
Chapter Four: In progress.
A hopefully fresh permutation of the elements in a Ranma ½ / Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon crossover.
Chapter One: In which some people visit a zoo. Features advanced felinity.
Chapter Two: In which some other people plan a rescue. Features a very good meal.
Chapter Three: In which Ranma learns a secret. Features a cunning plan.
Chapter Four: In which Ryoga falls in love (again). Features a hidden plot, though you don’t see much of it on account of it being hidden (well, duh).
Chapter Five: In which I make fun of a stereotype involving Happosai. Features more smiley faces than are probably good for you.
Chapter Six: In which several people get surprised in various ways. Features a lot of perverts.
Chapter Seven: In which Ranma learns more than he ever suspected there was to know about physically growing up. Features two rather disturbing meetings.
Chapter Eight: In progress.
All items listed below may also be found, at approximately 50% size, embedded in the story.
I’m tremendously chuffed to have received fan anything, let alone such wonderful stuff as this. If you should be inspired, feel free to try your hand at drawing something yourself!
Sailor Europa, from Chapter Three.
The two faces of “Sailor Europa,” as generated by the Disguise Pen when confused by Ranma’s curse activating, from Chapter Four.
The dreaded Hiccup Imp, from Chapter Six — life size!
Konatsu’s distracting daydream, from Chapter Seven. CAUTION: Probably not safe for work!
Ami and Ranma discussing personal space, from Chapter Six.
I have a number of story seeds on my hard drive. The most complete of them, meaning any which have substantially complete opening scenes, are listed below. Do not expect these to be expanded upon with any great rapidity.
The Great Rivalry, Chapter One: In which Ranma gets a new rival. Too bad for him that he doesn’t know about it.
Remember the Ranma ½ anime episode where Ryoga acquires a female piglet as both passenger and, the joke runs, love interest? Well, in the manga continuity, it wasn’t quite so simple… (Ranma ½)
Harry Potter and the Deeper Sight, Prologue & partial Chapter 1: A second-year story in which Harry, already doubting his sanity because he hears voices in the walls, is secretly cursed by a rival to see things no one else does, as well. (Harry Potter)
In descending order of fidelity to my original formatting, the other places I keep my stories are:
An Archive Of Our Own (AO3): Run by a non-anime-specific volunteer outfit calling itself the Organization for Transformative Works, this is the only other site that includes the illustrations people have made for my stories, in addition to my prose.
MediaMiner.org: This site is just as focussed on fanart as it is on fanfiction, yet for some reason does not allow illustrations to appear in the text of stories.
Fanfiction.net: This site is legendary for its uneven application of its own rules and general hostility to authors. If it didn’t have size and inertia on its side (it was one of the earliest big fanfiction archives), I don’t think anyone would still use it.
Ficwad.com: This site has been largely abandoned by its operators for several years now, and has difficulties with certain fairly common character codes and with basic formatting operations like centred paragraphs, but it still has a useful story-rating system.
