Strained Harmony:  Setsuna and her Big Bunny Ranma by sunny-temple Strained Harmony:  Setsuna and her Big Bunny Ranma by sunny-temple
So more than a few people have asked for two things about my Strained Harmony.
First: now that Setrsuna and Ranma are officially a couple as of ch5 they'd like to see the pair together.
Second:  given how much Setsuna has been indulging Ranma food wise, and the resultant... growth (though there's other factors at work to).  Just how big would Ranma get?

Hopefully this picture, set in about chapter 7, will answer those questions.

Composition of the picture comes from a B&W setsuna partial body shot that Pat did, and a few different gown models that I put together for Ranma.  I then came in and added the missing bits and did the linework, and coloring, and shading.

Oh, and I suppose it's an early Easter surprise ;p

Thanks to DCG,  Ikarus, ToxinVictoria, Milanda Anza, and Mahou Sensou for all their critiques and comments.

And special thanks to J. St.C. Patrick for giving me many, many tips and bits of advice.  Especially on Setsuna's arms, and by prodding me to put more work into Ranma's hair.

If this is set in chapter 7, does her current weight gain being a senshi have anything to do with her looking like she's pregnant or is that a development of things to come in Ranma and Setsuna's relationship?

Well, ch7 is a bit early for her to be pregnant.

But it's not coincidental that she's starting to /look/ that way, as you pointed out her weight gain is related to her being a senshi.


Thanks again for all the comments,  it's great to answer them.

So, she went from her original look, to curvy, and now to outright fat? Seriously? You like twisting Ranma in your fics but how does happiness translate to letting herself go that much? This is really insane.

Hmm... just ran across this in an unrelated search and I have to admit, this a lot larger than I was picturing Ranma from the descriptions in the story.  I don't see how there is any chance of Ranma possibly thinking she hasn't put on that much weight compared to Akane in this situation.  Maybe I'm thinking of an earlier point in the storyline though, since I also thought Ranma was still practicing the art.  (Though I do see the note on this being a couple chapters further in-- definitely still seems odd that Ranma would let it go that far though.  I could see her not being too concerned with a little extra weight, but this is something else altogether for someone who we know has the dedication to exercise.)

[That's correct.  This is from about ch7 or so

[Meanwhile ch5 is what's been posted.

[And you're also right that Ranma comparing herself to Akane was even earlier.

 

[And you're also right that Ranma's practicing of the art would have a factor.

[Quite right.

[Something big had to have happened for Ranma to let herself shift this way.

 

[If you're curious I can send you a preview copy of ch6  which does answer a bit to how Ranma could go this way.

 

[And that other people are also noticing...  or more specifically having a hard time remembering what Ranma was like... before.

Like Raneko please say your joking because unless she was pregnant I can't see Ranma getting fat he/she has a high matabilesum 
&
while you might argue that she will because she isn't doing the art or any excersize I say look at Usagi(Sailor Moon), Lina(Slayers)* & Jughead(Archie Comics)* they don't do the art or excersize & stay skinny 

* not sure if these two exists in your fics universe

Well she *did* have a high metabolism.    The trick is that there's more to Ranma's change than just her eating a lot more and not doing the art.

For one in the story she's getting much much stronger, and her bone density is changing. (Just checkout the club she has in her Hestia form) So if it helps, there is a deliberate magical angle.  It's actually related to how she became a Sailor Senshi.

Actually this sequence shows a bit of the consequence of that change.
SH: big Sailor Hestia 'transformation' sequence

Thanks for the comment,  hope that helps!

They both got great smiles. And the hair's getting life like.  But i think she needs a bit (lot?) more to thoes hips.  That dress has a lot of potential to flare out wide and be even more epic.

Stupid auto correct. I meant will his weight gain transfer over to his male form

Well....    that's not really something I considered.   Given how the healing powers and senshi magic and the bunny changes...   It's not like that would really come up.

Thanks again!

The story is really good and I like the direction that the story is going. The only problem that I have with it is that iam not a big fan of permanent ranma-Chan fic where the situation that requires him to be in his cursed form will eventually be resolved. Such a high level martial artist spending such a long time not practicing and his rather rapid weight gain will practically cripple him. And the reason we love ranma is because of among other things his martial art fights. Regardless the main problem I have with the story is because you might be making the same mistake that a lot of crossover story writers make is that you are taking a character and twisting it into something that they aren't to fit in with the story. Ranma has always been defined by his martial arts. It is all he has known since he can literally remember. To take that away from him is simply have a character with the name ranma that happens to turn into a girl with cold water. Regardless good story can't wait for more

First thanks for commenting.   I really do appreciate it.

 

Well  one thing to keep in mind is that Ranma's been with Setsuna and Hotaru for over a year.  Nearly 20 months.  I mean Akane's noted that Ranma's been gone longer than Ranma's lived in Nerima.

 

As for Ranma becoming a guy once the situation is resolved...   Once Nabiki's dealt with, do you really see Ranma going back to being a guy?  After the Senshi power... the living as a nanny,  the engagement,  all the growth (not physical) and changes with her new friends and family?

 

Heck just look at what happened with the Tendos.  Kasumi and Akane moved out.  Kasumi got a job,  Akane's going to a new school.  Things can't go back to the way they were.

And for the weight gain.  I will say this picture is set in ch7.  Which is about two and a half years after the start of the fic.   If that's rapid that's up to you.  (There is no denying that it is a lot of weight)

And for the beloved martial arts fights.  Yeah that's a major and fun part of most Ranma stories.    This story on the other hand...  hasn't really shown many fights has it?

 

You do raise a good point about the "character with the name Ranma".  But honestly,  she's not even someone that "happens to turn into a girl with cold water" anymore.

 

But yes,  twisting Ranma is sort of a thing I do.  I perusal of the other pics in this account shows that readily enough.  (And for the story I could have had Ranma stay a tomboy, stay thin,  even eventually start being a guy sometimes, but that's not the story I wanted to tell)

 

 

Thank you for commenting.  And that you still enjoy the story despite how it goes against the grain of your personal tastes is appreciated.   As is that you're awaiting more despite the story.

 

 

Once again thanks!

Wait hold up, this story is still being written? If memory serves it's only up to about chapter 5 on FF.net and nothing has happened in quite a while. Is there another place where it's being updated?

It is still being written,  but you are correct only the first 5 chapters have been released to date.

While I would have liked an estimation the fact that it's still being written is great. So many stories have a good start but are just dropped after a while.

Ah,  apologies.  I'd like to give a better estimate on when ch6 will be done, but alas I can't really.

Thanks for commenting,  glad you've enjoyed it!
