Re-reading...

Postby Neko- » Sun Oct 17, 2021 7:22 am

Seems a lot of stories just went quiet... Guess the fandom isn't as active as it used to be.

That said, I did find myself going back recently and re-reading a couple of stories that I really liked back then. So... have you re-read anything that may warrent a shoutout to the rest of the forum as something to invest some time on?

Recent re-reads of mine included

"Careful Destiny" (which I doubt will even be finished, even tho I know Todd Hill as the author is still around on LinkedIn)
"Stop F___ing With The Future" is a oneshot (which I can't even find a link for anymore - but I do have a copy locally) by the Eternal Lost Lurker, crossing Sailormoon and Back To The Future...
"Vengeance And A Half, Fire's crossover between Sailor Moon and Ranma
"The 8th Weasley, what you get if you toss Buffy and Harry Potter together in a story
"The Dark Lords Of Nerima" and it's two continuations "The Dark Lords Strike Back" and "The Dark Lords Ascendant"
"Dexter's Lab - Equestria" for what happens if you toss Dexter into a world of equines. Story has a companion piece in "Nightmare Trip"
"Sleeping With The Girls - Fictional Reality" and it's continuation "Chaos Theory"
And a fun bit on what happens if Ranma gets tossed into the world of My Little Pony: "Home Is Where Your Curse Is" and it's continuation "Taming The Wild Horse".
Also had a go with "Gaijin", an older piece from Carrot Glace mixing up Spiderman and Sailor Moon.
"Big Human On Campus" by Black Dragon crosses Rosario No Vampire and Ranma. It has a followup, but I can also recommend "Guardian" and it's spinoff "Millennium" which can be found at his own website at https://www.angelfire.com/anime5/fanfic ... brary.html

So... Anyone else have any recommendations on older fics to read?

For me, anything by Kenko. And dogbertcarroll.

Also…

"The Sea King" — a cross between Harry Potter and Deadliest Catch. Doghead's "two "The Book of Dobby" stories are also worth reading. ("There's a bird on the phone and she sounds skelping mad.")

"Permutation" — a fukufic. Ranma is the senshi of… what?!?

"Beautiful Magical Girl Civil War" — A worldwide MG meeting in Tokyo devolves into a brawl over a guy.

"Senshi, Onsen People and Ranma" — Ranma ends up taking care of the Hinata Guesthouse. (R/LH/SM) I also liked migele's "Sailor Santa" series, but YMWV.

Dancing by Gabriel Blessing. Ranma, older and wiser, has discovered some of the truths of the Lovecraft mythos. Ryoga, older but no wiser, discovers them too.

Anything by Kenko, of course - I second Te Rowan's suggestion. Girl Days is fun. "Hotaru 1/2" is an omake that grew to a full story. Kenko's computer died some while back, and I think this was lost, but I have a copy.

Revenge of the Teriyaki by DragonGolem, and its sequel, "You Can't Choose Your Family".

The Girl Who Loved by Darth Drafter, and its sequel, "Violence Inherent In The System. Harry Potter pops out of the air in front of Ranma Saotome. Soon, they're joined by Sailor Moon. Canon will never be the same!

The Best Of Times That great rarity, a finished story by Ozzallos. An epic pissing match between Ranma and Pluto.

xXxRanma by Lost Star. The xXx means neither alcohol nor sex; it means Ranma has asked a wish of Yuuko, the Witch of XXXHolic.

A search only found "Hotaru 1/2" by Metroanime on Mediaminer, is that also Kenko? I expect not?

Those are great.

Sadly, it's what happens to most stories and fandoms. And with Ranma being pre- mass-internet, lots and LOTS of people have never even heard about it. There's still activity, but yeah, considerably less.

So... Anyone else have any recommendations on older fics to read?


Uh, all my first thoughts have already been mentioned unfortunately... :?

But BIG thanks for the thread, you just gave me enough to read for a few days minimum, possibly weeks. :D


Edit:
Well, looking at some of these made me start rereading this(short and unfinished, but author has also done some similar other stories that are longer or even *gasp* complete):

You're correct. I tend to conflate the two. Metroanime is on FFnet, and at least the beginning of Hotaru 1/2 starts ataa chapter 21. Whatever - it's good.

As for Hotaru 1/2 is also on Mediaminer, if you wanted to read it without any other stories in the same link...

http://www.mediaminer.org/fanfic/c/cat- ... 6251/68597

It has one of my all time memorable scenes in it...
Genma Saotome was occassionally a bright man. Of course, these bursts of intelligence usually were the beginnings of plans to either get himself into trouble or out of it. Usually he was too thick to accept some things. This wasn't one of them.

A little girl wasn't much of a problem. An angry little girl was only slightly more trouble. An angry little girl with a weapon could be a problem. An angry little girl with a bladed weapon was a problem.

An angry little girl glowing and surrounded by purple lightning, holding a bladed weapon to his neck was the message to start trembling.


As for Migele... I like several of his stories, including the Onsen stories. I do wish he had both continued them and gotten a beta reader though. They are all rushed and have spelling errors in them, but like said, liked the stories and plots.

EDIT: As for fandoms... it depends what you like and whether you prefer long or short stories, and if you prefer straight or crossovers... Below is a scattering of some of the longer stories I've liked over the year, regardless of fandom.

Two more authors:
https://www.fanfiction.net/u/78738/Cloud-Dreamer has mostly written Ranma stories/crossovers.
https://www.fanfiction.net/u/507123/udderpd has written Harry Potter fic, sometimes a bit limish.
Both are from my 'like' file, of course.

Currently keeping up with 3 fics which are all original works...

Chrysalis (ongoing) - Basically being reborn in a new world as an ant. Lots of game-interface bits being described here, but those are skippable for the story as a whole.
Only Villains Do That (ongoing) - Being isekai'd as the villain of the story, and not liking the one that put you in that position in the script one bit.
The Gods Are Bastards (hiatus) - Supposedly by the same author as the above 'Only Villains Do That'. Lots of worldbuiding in this one, with a LOT of people doing various things. All original characters, no isekai present.

Re-reading Blood That Flows, the largest and most popular Slayers crossover ever. Is a cross with Nanoha and Lina as Nanoha's mother.

The list of stories I re-read is long. But I have a relatively short list of authors whose stories I will always consider:

DogbertCarroll https://www.fanfiction.net/u/284419/ -- Everywhere, and so are the stories. Sometimes, they even get finished.

Rorschach's Blot https://www.fanfiction.net/u/686093/Rorschach-s-Blot -- Rather like DogbertCarroll, but with more jalapenos in the stories.

Darth Marrs https://www.fanfiction.net/u/1229909/Darth-Marrs -- Finishes stories

Ack1308 https://www.fanfiction.net/u/5180580/ -- Right now a couple dozen completed stories, working on even more.

mp3.1415player https://www.fanfiction.net/u/8886156/ -- The chief story is Taylor Varga. At the moment, it's over two million words, and every now and then a clutch of new chapters appears. Even that far along, I'm still enjoying it. Side stories to it, too.

Tenhawk http://fanfiction.tenhawkpresents.ink/viewuser.php?action=storiesby&uid=3&offset=0 -- He's several places on the Web, but that's his personal fiction site. These days he's off doing professional fiction.

PixelWriter1 https://www.fanfiction.net/u/5088760/PixelWriter1 -- Worldbuilder. Sometimes the worlds are very large; Desperately Seeking Ranma has about a million and a half words in it, counting side stories and spinoffs, and it's not yet finished. It's Always the Quiet Ones is only 8400 words long, and you will never see the world of Harry Potter in the same way after reading it.

Doghead Thirteen https://www.fanfiction.net/u/1205826/Doghead-Thirteen -- Serious CRACK.

Darth Drafter https://www.fanfiction.net/u/1933697/ -- Harry Potter, with crossovers. Nice balance of emotions. Finishes stories.

UnwelcomeStorm https://archiveofourown.org/users/UnwelcomeStorm/pseuds/UnwelcomeStorm -- Eclectic, but has written something I thought impossible: a serene Worm fanfic.
