Why This Must Be Read: This is a fighting-leads-to-making-out fic, where Akane and Ranma’s normal bickering and sparring and general getting-in-each-other’s-faces routine starts to become even more physical. I love this fic for capturing the crazy, over-the-top violence of the canon without making the story itself ridiculous, and the way Ranma and Akane both end up turned on despite themselves (and just keep on sparring after they start kissing) is so great and really hot and so very them. And I just love this author's way of handling the Ranma 1/2 tone - there's humor, there's the wackiness of the canon, the exaggerated fighting, it's all there, and it's perfect.
