Ranma -- Outsider POV

Postby mondu_the_fat » Wed Jun 08, 2011 3:36 am

One of my favorite styles of writing is an outsider POV. That is, the story is told from the viewpoint of a minor or original character(s), but for whom the story itself doesn't revolve around. Examples would be not even jimmy olsen.

I was wondering if there were any Ranma stories written like that.

You are looking for a fanfic version of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead? I cannot remember any, though that proves nothing.

Similar, but not quite. More like "nerima in the eyes of people you've never seen in the manga/random dude" or maybe "nerima in the eyes of the old lady that splashes water on the street". Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead is a bit twilght-zony.

I think it might be better told from Yuka and Saiyuri's eyes. After all they were the most frequently reused background characters in the Manga.

No idea if it's still online anywhere, but you might try Ordinary by Donny Cheng. It makes Yuka a main character in the beginning and end, but the middle is pretty much an outsider's view of the NWC.

It is:

RANMA 'Ordinary' by Donny Cheng - [Notice=Graphic Material] - [Dld Date=10/08/2004] - [Dld Size=75kb] - [Status=Inactive]

There are plenty of others really, as a lot of outsiders see Ranma in his life in various fan fiction.

For example... a couple arcs of the following:
R-MULTI 'Not Another SI Fic' by Enigmatic Magus-T Kagato - [Dld Date=12/20/2009] - [Dld Size=1501kb] - [Dld Files=56] - [Status=Inactive]
And how about portions of:
R-MULTI 'Never Negociate with the Ice Queen' by NomadicOne - [Dld Date=04/07/2006] - [Dld Size=833kb] - [Dld Files=9] - [Status=Complete]
A small portion of the folloing has a elf watching snippets of his life, always missing the punchline
R-RS 'Rune Soldier Ranma' by Animeaddiction - [Dld Date=07/26/2006] - [Dld Size=527kb] - [Dld Files=11] - [Status=Inactive]
