Re: If Akane applied makeup...

This is why I have never written a Hitler fanfic. One reason among many, I suspect. :¬) After I got my breath back from the extreme laughter Ellen’s post triggered, I had to wonder… There is a well-known Internet axiom to the effect that a discussion thread can be said to have achieved 0% signal-to...

Re: Opinions about World building. thoughts, pros, and cons

I think the only questionable detail of the three-axis rating scale you suggest is the naming of the categories — as mentioned, “story” and “characters” would more accurately be called “plot” and “characterization,” and I agree that trying to usefully evaluate a person’s mechanical basics (spelling,...

Re: Millennium of Serenity

I was following Millennial Panic, and liked a lot of it but was getting quite concerned about how "darkfic" it was drifting towards. I'm happy to hear that (a) your life is improving to a point where you feel able to Do It Even Better, and (b) that you are in fact _doing_ so. Great start, ...

Re: The Imperial Servant.

Oh... as a FYI, the spoiler tag does not work depending upon which forum theme you are using... so I get nothing when I click them unless I go to the trouble to switch themes, click it, read it, then switch themes back. Wow! That particular defect has vexed me (read: thoroughly pissed me off) for y...

Re: PCHeintz72's Filtered Full List Update-03/23/15

…coding a post processing search and replace removal of my own tagging system seems counter productive for my own uses. Agreed. That was why I had suggested that as a separate and optional post-processing step rather than part of the actual program's report-generation function. I know the main reas...

Re: PCHeintz72's Filtered Full List Update-03/23/15

Uh… I know that any use of the system would necessarily process all entries, else it would not be possible to tell which fics had changed. That the delta report omitting the unchanged items is generated by manual postprocessing rather than during the main run is an irrelevant implementation detail. ...

Re: PCHeintz72's Filtered Full List Update-03/23/15

I personally am very grateful that you go to all the effort to periodically post these lists. I don’t have anything like the time to manually check as many sites as your system does, and I frequently discover new stories — even, rarely, entirely new-to-me fandoms — thanks to their presence in what y...

Re: Ranma the Amazon

I remember both of those and I am quite certain they were not the same fic. Also, that first one has shown up more than once; I distinctly remember a third fic where a past attempt at preëmptive rape mitigation via birth-control pills had had to be abandoned because it had exactly that side effect. ...

Re: PReggers Ranma, But the Papa's a Senshi

Admittedly of questionable relevance given that what you specifically sought has already been found, but one of Narsil's series (they can be found on AO3) has this in it (and a great deal else, of course). I believe either the first story or possibly the series as a whole was called "Things Cha...

Re: Looking for specific ranma fic

About half of these plot points are vaguely reminiscent of a fairly good longer series by (I think) Coutuva? where Ranma's backstory involved some shenanigans I do not clearly recall featuring the Musk locking ladle. She was dying her hair green, at least partly to keep anyone from finding her. I ca...

Re: Cringeworthy fic ideas (post here lest ye commit spamfic

…Huh. My apologies for apparently having piddled in your metaphorical corn flakes, ckosacranoid. Wasn’t intentional. I’d actually been thinking more along the lines of the following excrescence, for which I also am sorry: Kuno, using his usual sort of warped logic that makes sane people wince, decid...

Re: Cringeworthy fic ideas (post here lest ye commit spamfic

Hmm. Grim follow-through there. How everyone would respond will depend on the winner of a clash between two powerful forces of narrative causality that are among those controlling the Ranmaverse, specifically “It’s Kuno, there’s no possible way he could be right about this” (alas, weaker in canon th...

Re: What if… — Idea inklings

At first glance, Cat chases Rat sounds thematically appropriate and in theory would lead to much humorous property damage (especially once a certain obsessive, probably legally-blind, absurdly heavily-armed, stalker of a duck entered the fray—the classic mid-century Tom and Jerry cartoons may be rel...

Re: What if… — Idea inklings

That would be “What’s in a Name?” by Muishiki. I liked it, but had a difficult-to-quantify impression that it could have been even better. I still can’t figure out how, or just why I feel that way.
