for The Raven

Actually now the copypaste only works from work... odd... Sniffle sniff sniffle. So any sugestions on what to do from home would be great!

Maybe I need to find my old copy of Netscape 2.0 :)

I've got to say this chapter feels a bit... chapter for chapters sake ish. I mean yes things happen but from start to end we're basically at the same point as last time. I guess it's just that your so close to the end or after it given the title, that I'm emotionally ready for some kind of closure rather than remaining stuck on the precipice.

GREAT CHAPTER! (*x4) Looks like the real big battle about to start, and looks like Raven still in the fight.

Thank you for another excellent chapter.

If FLAG does have *written* permission then that could be viewed by the courts as a contract and Fanfic would be obligated to live up to it.

As for the customer is always right I suggest reading "Top 5 reasons why “The Customer Is Always Right” is wrong" as to why more and more companies are tuning out their customers:

1) It makes employees unhappy
An unhappy employee is an unproductive employee

2) It gives abrasive customers an unfair advantage

3) Some customers are bad for business

4) It results in WORSE customer service

5) Some customers are just plain wrong

To which I will add that customer *say* they want something but that is not always what they actually want. Customers say they want the constant sales to stop and to have honest prices. Well, JC Pennys listened to those customers and it is in even worst shape then if it hadn't.

Let's face it the MA section had become a wasteland of badly written porn with the occasional diamond. That is why it got clobbered; there are just to many ultra conservatives running around for fanfict to have a big "smash me" sign on its back.

Another good chapter. Although, I am really looking forward to this part of the story being over. Ever since Ranma/Raven left his new family this hasn't had much to do with Ranma 1/2. It has been more of a Teen Titan / Oh My Goddess crossover. Not that it has been bad, but I am really looking forward to Ranma/Raven moving to reclaim part of her past life. Besides, Ranma made a promise to Akane, and he wouldn't be Ranma if he didn't keep his promises. And that is something that you are going to have to be very careful of. After all, this is still supposed to be Ranma.

Regarding the actions of FFnet. I completely agree with demonianism. This is most likely an extremely short-sighted and utterly doomed attempt to hold onto some advertising revenue. The truly sad thing is that if they were to spend the resources and effort on providing what their customers want instead of trying to lock everything into their old business model none of this animosity would be necessary. It would be relatively simple for them to make a reader for both iOS and Android which would allow for offline storage of stories. Both of these platforms also provide their own advertising systems which would allow for the FFnet team to recoup some or all of the lost revenue through not forcing customers to read online. Oh, and demonianism, they aren't any more of a monopoly than Friendster or My Space were in their day and age. And just like those two companies, if a significant portion of authors and/or readers ever find another site that offers what they want... Well it would be a shame for FFnet to become the next My Space. Because, fanfiction has been around longer than the internet, and it will survive without FFnet.

skywiseskychan: You are likely not using one of the big four browsers (IE, Firefox, Chrome, or Safari) or you are using a version of IE older than 10. FFnet added the user-select family of css to the story text to disallow selection. This does absolutely nothing to stop either copying of the text (simply select all or drag select text before and after the story then copy) nor does it stop any sort of scrapper program which deals with the raw HTML and DOM.

In the end, FFnet will lose this battle for the exact same reason that the much bigger entertainment industry is losing the battle for complete control of video content (and they are in an even worse position than them). It is pretty much impossible to maintain complete control of something which exist to be viewed by others. No matter what they do their content has to be human readable, and if it is human readable then it is also machine readable. This is why I find it sad to see them wasting so many resources on losing strategies that will only serve to aggravate both of their customer bases (readers and authors) instead of spending resources on providing what both really want.

I'm not sure what Bree R is talking about, cut and paste is working for me... anyway...

Yay we get to see Raven to the end! Woohoo!

Boo she's getting all portalized.

Yay her friends are all safe.

Boo Trigun's getting what he wants.

Yay the fire elementals are gone and slade is presumably free to act.

Boo the fire elementals are gone and slade is presumably free to act.

I do hope that Raven finds someone, (other than Beast Boy because I can't stand that pairing) to actually find love with once this is all over. Given her history its going to be hard though.

GRRRRRRRRRRR and clapping in appreciation of a wonderful chapter but arrrggghh the cliffhanger. This literally was a pins and needles type of chapter. Now we have to wait (pout).

it is really a very entertaining chapter, but darn that stubborn Ranma she needs help.

Well I would hope you'd know how you're going to continue your own story lol!

Looks like Ranma/Raven is going to try to do something with her ability to adapt. in a way this may be a way for her to fully heal or at least maybe heal more from the time she spent in hell under Rothgan. Love the chapter and looking forward to more.

Thank you for creating it.

Still an Awesome story. Please update it as soon as you can.

Well since you have done such a good job with Ranma as Raven I have an idea.
Ozzallos has a fic "Hell is a Marital Artist" where Ranma becomes Hilds child.
Here is my twist, Hild tries at some point to give Ranma a "normal childhood".
Ranma is de-aged, temporarily locked in female form, and grows up as Willow Rosenberg.
Memories are also hidden for years but come back at some point, when is your choice.

Hey its not any more far out than Ranma as Kim Possible...
And someone has done that.

Thanks for the update.

Well, what can I say ?

Keep the coming :)

I wouldn't be too hopeful about FLAG vs . It's probably about profits from the ads that FF is worried about. They probably think that if they block the downloaders from using their e-readers than they will be forced back to the computer browsers which have ads. More people viewing ads more $$.

For some reason this seems to be a common point of idiocy these days. A lot of companies are finding out that the saying 'the customer is always right' came about for a reason. If the customer isn't happy they leave, and FF has a lot of unhappy customers from the MA debacle, I have to wonder just how many more will be lost.
