About To Wear A Midnight Rose

It had to happen sometime, and I'm surprised it didn't happen sooner. I'm quite aware that many fans don't care for cross-overs, and even understand why. They're terribly difficult to do well, and it's hard to keep the fans of all the source stories happy. If you fall into this category of fan, don't waste any more time here. Go! Go now!

Still here? Great. So what do I mean, "it had to happen sometime"? If you're familiar with Ranma 1/2, you've probably seen Kodachi Kuno, also known as the "Black Rose". If you've seen past the first thirteen episdoes of Shoujo Kakumei Utena, you're familiar with the second major story arc, the "Black Rose Saga". The correlation here seemed simple and obvious to me. I began searching the web to see if anyone had already tackled this combination. I did locate the "Quantum Destinies" stories, wherein the characters from Ranma 1/2 and Shoujo Kakumei Utena are allowed to meet. That story is set in an alternate universe; it's fun, but not what I was looking for. Simply put, I was fixated on the idea of Black Rose Kodachi herself becoming a Black Rose Duellist. I have also seen the start of a story entitled "She of the Black Rose", but that author and I seem to be moving in sufficiently different directions, so you get to see my version anyway.
