''Forcibly United'' is a fanfiction by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/920021/ Gaming Ikari]] which is a crossover between Manga/BlackLagoon and Manga/RanmaOneHalf.

The story begins when Happosai decides that he needs better control over Ranma and uses something called the Bracers of Jian to control him. Naturally, he happens to use this right as Ranma and Ryouga are fighting, leaving both of them irrevocably chained together. Both boys learn that, no matter what they try, they can't move more than thirty feet from one another. Neither are happy about this.

Then Cologne tells them that she knows someone who can help, and arranges for her nephew Chang to house the boys and make sure the various criminals in Roanapur don't tear them alive. The first thing Ranma does on arriving in Roanapur is [[TooDumbToLive call Revy a clumsy tomboy]].

!!Provides Examples Of:

* CerebusSyndrome: Hardcore during the Rock's Little Sister arc, which seems aimed to make Balalaika and Gretel friends.
* TheChewToy: [[spoiler:Rip van Winkle]]

* CoolShades: Dutch's sunglasses.
* DeadpanSnarker: Ramna
* DefrostingIceQueen: Due to the effects of some mushrooms that Ranma and Ryouga bring to Roanapur, Rock manages to steadily get bigger and bigger emotional rises out of Balalaika. Justified by her being suddenly reduced to a teenager and dealing with teenage hormones.

* PetTheDog: Gretel's just a young girl with amnesia and a crush on a cute guy. Honest!
* PrettyLittleHeadshots: Gretel survives her "death" at the end of her original arc precisely because of this.

* RedOniBlueOni: Ranma and Ryouga. They switch roles at some times, but typically Ryouga is the more calm and reasonable one.
* RunningGag: Revy duels Ranma until she runs out of ammo in the third chapter. She asks for a rematch when she gets her [[BottomlessMagazines new guns]]. Ranma agrees.
* ShipTease: Hey, remember how Balalaika kinda leaned into Rock for a kiss in the Fujiyama Gangsta Paradise arc? Gaming Ikari has turned this into a full-blown love triangle.
* SlapSlapKiss: At one point, Balalaika gets frustrated and decides that if she can't intimidate Rock with violence, she'll intimidate him some other way and pulls him into a kiss which [[PostKissCatatonia leaves him dazed.]] [[RefugeInAudacity It works]].
* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: A central theme is the contrasting themes of Manga/RanmaOneHalf versus Manga/BlackLagoon.
* SmokingIsCool: Subverted. Eda and Balalaika don't smoke once they're reduced to being teenagers because their lungs aren't fully developed and have a more adverse reaction to the tobacco.
* StatusQuoIsGod: Subverted with [[spoiler:Rock's resignation from the Lagoon Company to work as Balalaika's advisor.]]
* StoryArc: Bigtime. The first isn't labeled as such, but then Chapters 13-24 are divided into "Comes the Hot-Blooded Dragon" and "Rock's Little Sister", each of which are ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin... If you've been paying attention.
