Ranma Fanfiction Links
Take the commentary with a grain of salt. It is, after all, just my
Ranma Fanfic Archive--the official archive the
rec.arts.anime.creative (raac) newsgroup, Ranma subdirectory. Note: You need something that can unzip .gz files, since
everything here is gzipped.
- RAAC Ranma Mirror Site
This is on the same place where DnR and DnU are located. The stories
here are in text format, not zipped....
- Taleswapper's Fanfiction
Commentaries Taleswapper has managed to establish himself as a
respected commentator of Ranma fanfiction. (Right, he's got as much of a
life as I do. ^_^) Here's his page, filled with his opinions--and
reasonable arguments to back himself up. Agree or disagree, you gotta
check it out first. Of special note are his Halls of Fame and his essay
on Annoying New Characters (ANCs).
- A Guide to Ranma
1/2 Fanfiction--maintained by White Wolf; it hasn't been added to
for a little while. It contains short summaries for many of the Ranma
stories posted to raac. The links to the actual stories themselves go
straight to the raac archive, the first link on this page, above. Not
all of them work, though.
- Kendai's Ranma Fic
Links The reason I decided to upgrade these pages. There are a few
non-Ranma links here, too. Oh, and he does some writing as well.
- Annual Best of Ranma
Fanfic Awards They've also gone monthly, now, plus they have a cool
CGI script that makes things easier to deal with. :) Check it out--my
fics have done well here, too....
- The More Things Change, The Pursuit of Happiness,
The Way Things Are (Bonus! Eight Days a Week) I'll direct you to my
"The" page, which handles this great set of fics. The links to the
authors' own pages about these fics are there, anyway. Why do the same
links twice, without good reason?
Fiction Page--Ranma works John Biles's Ranma works, located on the
same server as DnR and DnU. This man is sometimes called the
"Granddaddy of Ranma fanfiction", considering how long
he's been in the business, and what quality work he puts out. Putting
Your Heart/Furinkan Summer, the first major continuation fic. The
Elseworlds homepage, the first big alternate universe fics. Cool
crossovers and fusions, too.
Lesson in Love Yes, I know I've got the story in my archive, but this
is where the home of it is! And until she puts it out on raac, any new
parts won't be up on my archive. LiL is a beautifully crafted continuation
fic, written a a semi-serious, semi-comic middle ground.
- Daigakusei no
Ranma/Daigakusei no Ukyou (As You Like It)--Ranma and Akane (among
others) go to college; a series written by a whole bunch of people. Very
true to Takahashi's style. Also, at the same place is DnU, which runs
parallel to DnR, but focusing on Ukyou. Duh. (The "As You Like
It" reference I believe is about okonomiyaki.) A personal note:
although it's considered "The" continuation of Ranma 1/2, I
stopped thinking that way a looong time ago. Rather, I give that
distinction to two other fics: A Lesson in Love and TMTC/TPOH.
Palmer's Works If you want good Warm And Fuzzy Feeling (WAFFy) fics,
here you go. They're excellently written, really.... If I'm feeling a
little down, I just pop in here and do a little light reading.
Ranma Page By Sebastian Weinberg. Actually, it's mostly a fanfic
page (which is why I've got the link on this page). He's a good writer,
I think ('specially "The Voice of Experience"--sneaky bugger
indeed!). He is also the writer of Ranko 1/2. If you don't know
what it's about, go see yourself. Since he doesn't seem to post to raac,
not too many see his stuff--here you go. Warning, it's in Germany (but
the page is in English), so it might load a little slowly, even for
those with ethernet connections.
- Sterman's Fanfics
This is the home of Richard Lawson's stuff, including the famed Thy
Inward Love continuation--touching melodramatic, a bit depressing at
times--as well as its (now completed) sequel, Magic. Also, find
his famed Nuku-Nuku stories here. The man's a genius for touching
- Mikado Sanzenin
Fics Someone is actually writing about the Golden Pair--focusing on
the Golden Pair, not just having them turn up as random villains of
sorts. Actually, there are a few people writing them. Very
interesting.... In fact, there are a few fics here that actually make
the possibility of a Mikado-Azusa matchup feasible.
Ranko Story Archive A collection of stories that focuses on Ranma's
girl half. Be warned, there are quite a few lemons here. >_< Some
of them are pretty cool. But I don't particularly like the
Ranma-gets-stuck-as-a-girl stories (either physically or mentally).
Elysium The works of Nicholas Leifker (who says that he's not
posting under the name "Nightelf" anymore...). Here you'll
find the only darkishfic (more like a sadfic, actually) that I like,
"Sunrise" and the Sunrise Chronicles. He's working on
some others, too. They're good; check them out.
Fanfics Fiction written by Blade and Epsilon, two other deacons of
the Church of Ucchan. Here's where Ran-Wars is kept, for one. Curse
of Darkness, The Kyoto Chronicles, etc. also.
Fanfic Page Jai-kun is, of course, Jason Langlois, a fellow writer
and a net-friend of mine. Fellow believer in the Ryouga an' Ukyou
matchup! Heehee. He's also a recurring writer for Ranma 2096...something
for which I can forgive him. ^_^ His works also range from cheerful
to dark (mostly the 2096 stuff).
- SKJAM!'s Fic
Page Ah, Scott Jamison, famed inventor of the revengefic (remember
"Sauce"?). Here's his fic webpage.
- Hearts of Ice by
Krista Perry; a fabulous tale of...well, epic proportions. A rather
fresh take on the old Ranma-Akane relationship. Starts out a little
slow, but gets really good. The Japanese mythology involved makes it
very interesting. Find it here.
Morganfield's Fanfic Thingy The source of Tales of Ranma and Nabiki
(ToRN, which kinda tells you something), and some weird, sick stuff,
too. ^_^ This is his new URL, at Geocities.
by Anne Packrat Anne Packrat's writings. Varied things from farce to
sad introspections. Very skilled writer.
Fanfics Though I'm really not one for lemons, I feel that I need to
include this link. It is fair tribute to Ms. Caroline Seawright, Queen
of Ranma lemons. Here's her Nibunnoichi stuff.
- Ethan Tsai's
Fanfiction So far, two things: "How to Be a Ranma 1/2
Character" (a spoofish thing) and "Love and War"
- Bishoujo Senshi Sailor
Ranma The famed meld of Ranma characters with the Sailor Moon
plotline. Fun stuff.
Ranma Fiction CBear is a relative newcomer, but seems to have that
touch already.... Slow, romantic shorts.
Fanfiction Silly me, forgot to do this much, much earlier. Here you
will find the masterpieces that are called "written by Zen".
It's such a pity he takes so long, though, to put things out....
Ranma Fanfiction Haven't had a chance to check this out yet.
