Ryouga and Ukyou!
No, I don't claim to have the definitive Ranma
fanfic page (whatever that could be). That's not what I mean.
What is this, then? Well, there presently are these set of fanfics which
go together. I like them enough to set aside a whole webpage for them. I
call them "The" Fanfics because of their titles: The More Things
Change, The Pursuit of Happiness, and The Way Things
Are. Ya see? TMTC and TPOH are written by RpM. TWTA is written by
Kevin Eav, under the editorship of RpM. I've also included Eight Days
a Week (written by Nigel M. and also edited by RpM), since it is a
sort of prequel to TMTC (although the effects of EDAW kind of
disappear... unfortunately). My thanks to RpM, for writing and starting
up this Ranmaverse, and Nigel and Kevin, for adding on to it. All of
these stories have a great sense of humor. Included are a few
extras--snipped author's notes, my own character notes, etc. Know that
these characters and stories belong to Takahashi Rumiko-san, Nigel M.,
RpM, or Kevin Eav. Now, except for Kevin's prologue, I've removed my
archive copies, and leave only the links to the authors'
Will be updated soon! Really.
- 8 Days a
by Nigel M. (edited by RpM)--This is sort of a prequel to TMTC, although
I haven't seen a trace of the effects of 8 Days (namely, the new
character Hentaii Isamu--note that his family name has two i's).
It's very well done, too. It has the style of humor that makes TMTC and
the parts of TPOH that I've so great to read. Unfortunately, according
to RpM, you won't see any of Isamu in the rest of the TMTC/TPOH
universe. Pity.... RpM told me that EDAW is to be considered an parallel
universe. He recently sent me this, the
"last vestiges of Isamu Hentaii".... Heh. Type: New Character and (like TMTC) with more Crossover
bits than you can shake a stick at
More Things Change by RpM (that's what he calls himself)--another
continuation, except it doesn't start at the end of the series, but
somewhere in the middle. This continuation thrives on humor. The premise
is that Ranma's problems kind of get...transferred. The sequel is in the
works (see below). Type: Original Flavor
(continuation) with plenty of Crossover bits and some New
- The Pursuit of
by RpM--Finally, some of this has been officially released, on the FFML
and raac. According to RpM's writing plans, it will start
following the manga storyline after a little while. Type: Original Flavor (continuation) and Crossover
pieces galore, plus even more New Characters
- The Way Things Are by Kevin Eav (edited
by RpM)--This would be the sequel to TPOH.... A few things won't be
quite clear until TPOH is released...actually, TWTA isn't very long yet,
so don't worry about it. In fact, since this is only the Preludes, I'm
going to skip writing any sort of synopsis here. Type: Er...New Character and continuation of a
continuation of a continuation.... That's the best I can say.
No page for TWTA exists currently...and the author's page is down for
A few extras....
- TMTC ver. 1 Endnotes Here's a bit
of the endnotes from the first version of TMTC released that was snipped
for the most recent revision. According to RpM, he took it out because
it wasn't really accurate anymore, after the changes he made. However,
it's still something rather interesting. (Note also that he changed some
of his spellings here between versions--Ukyo to Ukyou, Ryoga to Ryouga,
- TMTC-TPOH Characters, updated Sept. 14, 1997 Definitely contains spoilers--you have been
warned--A little bit of something that I wrote up. The details
within are true as of the end of Act I Part
12 of TPOH. As TPOH rolls out, I'm going to add to this.
Bonus--Included is a little bit of a Ryouga-Ranma parallel
Series Here's a series which ties into TPOH and TWTA, apparently. It
has to do with fanfics crossing over into each other.... It's weird.
You'll have to have read the other stories involved to fully understand,
