This is arguably the stupidest well written thing I've ever read. Ace
Ventura, a leading contender for the stupidest movie ever made,
crossed with Ranma in a bizzare, twisted, and disturbingly obvious
plot line makes me wonder if I am in fact getting dumber. These two
series should never even be mentioned in the same breath, and you've
managed to mix the two easily. That frightens me. I find absolutely no
problems with suspension of disbelief or interseries continuity. That
Ace's humor doesn't translate very well, but you've done an exception
job of keep the frivolous nature of him. He's a buffoon, and a
remarkably consistent one. He fits in perfectly.
Ranma's cast is slightly muted from normal, but that's fine. The story
flows well, I like your dialogue, and most of the gags hit. When they
miss, meh, there's another coming along shortly. I also really like
your portrayal of Nabiki's mental workings.
The only negative criticism I have is you seem to be following all the
fanficion conventions. Nabiki extorts money, Ryouga gets lost and
winds up on other continents, etc. It isn't a problem because the
story is absurd to begin with, but I'm not fond of it. I wonder if
introducing the whole cast is really necessary. If you enjoy it, rock
on. But it may get difficult to drag the lot of them around with you.
Anyway, huzzah huzzah. Go to it.

> "Hey, I do what I want! Besides, my dress needs to be cleaned." A plastic

> "Who cares? Let him wear girl's gym shorts for that matter."
> "It's not like he hasn't already."
> Akane sighed again, and walked away.

> A guy standing nearby dropped his coffee onto the ground from his limp hand.
> "A lesbian... Wow... I've never seen one in action before."

> "Not until you take Shampoo on date, no?"

> "How dare you force yourself on my Shampoo." A silhouette appeared and

> "Stupid Mousse." Shampoo stuck her nose into the air.
> "Oh." Mousse put his glasses on and noticed that he was talking to a tree.
> "You're not Ranma."
> Ranko continued to struggle to remove Shampoo from her person. "I'm over

> "Ranma Saotome, prepare to die!" Mousse pulled out a large mace and chain.

> That made Shampoo angry. Now she was going to have to get another order and

> "Hey there kitty. Want some ramen? Too bad, because Daddy just ate it all,

> "Rowr!" Shampoo attacked, swiftly, furiously and with no mercy.
> Moments later, a damp human female Shampoo picked up her empty ramen box and

> Ace slowly lifted his head up a few centimeters and whispered in a

> "Bwee!" A little black piglet who was wandering by took one look at Ace and

> Ace mumbled. "Go get Charlotte boys. You'll get an extra bag of nuts tonight
> if you catch her." He fell back, out cold.
> "At least Saturday's a half day."
> Akane growled back. "If you're trying to cheer me up, it isn't working."
> Nabiki shrugged. "Since school's already out, he can't blame you for missing
> "What's that supposed to mean?"
> "Oh, nothing. Do me a favor Sis. If you see him before I do, remind him he

> "Where's she going in such a hurry?" Akane wondered out loud. She paused and
> sighed again. She leaned over to a nearby stone wall and calmed herself

> anyone in anger. She sank against the wall in depression. "I really should
> control my temper. But, he makes me so mad."
> She saw that moment clearly. Kasumi had taken her aside and asked in a
> gentle but firm tone, "promise me Akane, don't hit anyone in anger."
> Again she sighed. Maybe, a walk might calm her nerves. It wasn't like they

> spied a familiar dirt path that led into a grove of trees. With a twinkle in

> hopped, skipped and jumped over a patch of grass that lay in the middle of
> the path. She was about to continue when she heard a familiar sound.
> Happily, she turned around.
> There, on the other side of the patch of grass she jumped over, sat her

> glee, he exclaimed in a loud voice, "I see we've got ourselves a satisfied
> customer. Let's go get Bon-Bon, shall we?" Taking the lead, Ace marched with
> pride as he led a legion of Stormtrooper Squirrels and Ninja Raccoons to
> collect their well earned reward. "The trap has sprung, just like I planned
> One raccoon was a bit surprised, "his plan worked?"
> A chipmunk commander answered. "there's a first time for everything."
> Ace snapped back. "I heard that." The two mumbling critters quickly stopped

> breath patterns to determine the species of animal he had caught. Ace was

> An instant later, Akane Tendo leapt out of the pit. She was encased in a

> flash of recognition, she snarled at Ace. "YOU! I know you! You're the one

> "Yep, I caught a gorilla. This is gunna hurt, right?"
> Akane answered by rolling up her sleeves, putting her pet pig down and

> Nodoka giggled. "Soun, your niece trained her panda well. It's almost as if

> Soun smiled. "Yes, Ranm.... Ranko is an excellent panda trainer."
> Nodoka's face brightened at the almost mention of her son's name. "Ranma?
> Have you seen Ranma? I hope he's here."
> The Tendo patriarch sat with respect. "I'm afraid not. He and your husband

> The panda's brow suddenly became beaded with sweat. He pulled out a wooden

> Nabiki kept her grin to herself as she watched the panda squirm.
> A portly policeman was being interviewed by a different cute young female

> "This time for sure." Ace limped and held onto a tree for support. He was

> The two turtle doves glanced at each other and shrugged their wings. The

> "Now, we just have to wait. Did you get what I asked for?"
> The chipmunk commander saluted and his trio of speeder bike riding chipmunks

> He sat and waited. A few minutes later, a bike rode through the small

> "Sorry, figure of speech."
> The rodents scowled their disapproval at being left out of the action again.
