Hiatus Update - Extended

This is an update on where things currently stand. I doubt that I'll be getting back to writing any time soon, and possibly not for a long time.

I had what I thought to be a solid employment opportunity lined up only to have it fall through at the end for reasons which seemed, to me, to be inadequate. I suppose it seemed otherwise from their point of view.

At the moment I'm having to devote a lot of time to training to broaden my skill sets, in order to increase the available opportunities. So I just don't have time for a lot of other things, like writing. Besides, I strongly suspect that if I were to write anything at this time, what would emerge would likely be extremely dark, even by my usual standards.

While there's probably an audience for that, it isn't really what I want to do.

So while there's always a chance I'll be hit by a burst of inspiration or two, it should be assumed that I'm signing off for some time to come.

That really sucks. I hope to see you back soon. And also employed. That will be very good.

I'm glad to see you're at least doing well, even if life is screwing you over.

You're definitely the best porn writer in the Ranma fandom I've seen, so it really sucks to see you unable to write.

Have you ever though of writing Ranma 1/2 netorare story?

H.Saotome said...

Yes, I've definitely thought of writing stories in which Ranma is cuckolded in some fashion. I doubt I'll write anything like that (or anything else) anytime soon, though.

Anonymous said...

Good news and bad news... Well, I still hope you'll return to the writing some day. I guess that Ranma might catch some disase that will make him lie in the bed or be very weak and avoiding fights, so Akane is kinda left for herself. Someone might get closer to her, saying tha he will keep her company and help her taking her of the Ranma, but eventually, he starts to seduce her.

H.Saotome said...

I prefer situations where Ranma is complicit in his own cuckolding. For example, they discover that his curse renders him infertile. But there's some sort of absolute requirement to produce an heir. And they cannot afford artificial insemination, or won't consider it for some other reason. So Ranma not only has to agree to Akane screwing some other guy, at minimum often enough to achieve conception, but must make some degree of effort to talk Akane into it. And there will be some reason the screwing continues later (Akane likes it too much, the requirement is for multiple children, etc.).

I see, how about this then:
Ranma catches Happosai peeping. They get into fight, Happo says that it's normal, Ranma says that he'd never do anything like this and that he is not a pervert at all. Angry Happo says that if so, then he'll make sure about it. He uses his special, secret attack that makes Ranma's manhood unable to work for some months. He then disappears without trace.

Some days later Genma is taken to the hospital. Doctors find that he's seriously ill and they're giving him year of live, maybe bit longer. He says that he wants his son to get married and have a child. Akane agrees and everyone are preparing for the marriage. The problem is about second wish. Ranma keeps his problem in secret, of course. Finally, having no other choice, he reveals this to Akane.

They understand that if they wish to please his daying dad, they have to make Akane pregant. Having no other choice, Akane agrees to have sex with someone else, because they don't have money for artificial insemination. Ranma agrees and he looks for options. He doesn't want it to be any of his enemies or rivals, so he decides for Michio, since he's ordinary guy and easy to convince. Ranma feels sure that he can also use his strength to keep him quiet.

Michio agrees and he has sex with Akane in the same day that Ranma and Akane marry. Akane is surprised how good it is to have sex with Michio and she is so sad that she can't do it with Ranma. She has no idea that Michio is cunning bastard and already has some kind of plan. During their sex she also accidentally reveals him Ranma's secrets.

He manages to swap Akane's pregnancy test and makes her sure that she's still not pregnant. So they need a second time. But this time Michio asks for Ranma's assistance - in the girl's form, of course. He makes Ranma suck him and watch as he fucks Akane. For Ranma it's double humiliating to do this and then to listen to Akane's moans of pleasure.

Michio skillfully seduces Akane, asks her out and keeps her horny and hungry for sex. He makes her kiss him the public and so on. Finally, it's hers that offers him a sex, since she can't have it with Ranma. Also, Nodoka comes and she's so happy that her son is marries with Akane. She stays at home. To convince her that everything is all right, they have to ask Michio to come again and have sex with Akane in their room, to make Nodoka think that it's Ranma and Akane. This time Ranma has just to watch as they have sex. Michio might make him turn into girl and offers some vibrator to play as she watches him screwing Akane.

Finally Akane gets pregnant. She still goes out with Michio secretely. Ranma finds it out eventually and wants to kick Michio's ass, but Akane defends her lover.

Happosai returns and brings a rare herb that will make Ranma's manhood all right again. But it's revealed that this rare herb is also the cure for Genma's illness. And since it's extra rare, it will be no time to find it again before Genma's death. But then Happo says that if Ranma will stay like this for a month or two, he willl be unable to fuck any woman in his life. Ranma accepts it and asks Happo to cure Genma. Her reveales this to Akane. She decides to break with Ranma and to marry Michio. but they let Ranma live with them, as a female maid.

H.Saotome said...

Pretty good. I'd probably use a different made up name for the guy to avoid the connection to MV. My own personal preference would probably be to leave Ranma and Akane married with the guy as a permanent live-in guest, who's pretty much the husband in all but name.

Peter schell said...

my bias would be once the guy has done the deed, he now has leverage to demand that Ranma only takes his female form in 'their' home, and all the rest that implies.

Anonymous said...

Works fine for me, he might even make Ranma wear maid apron or something like this, to show who wears trousers in this house.

H.Saotome said...

That's fine with me also, or even insisting that Ranma spend a lot of time as female outside of the home as well.

So, now all we need is someone to write this down :)

Sorry, nothing currently in preparation, and not expecting to start up again soon.
