Brief Notes by Nerf or Nothing: I will update this until I finish it!
Finally got this one started. I am moving in three days, and it is a major pain in my ass. My ex is taking the laptop back so I will be without a computer… BUT THAT WILL NOT STOP ME! I will use the libraries whenever I get the chance lol I have an external hard drive and often write my idea's down in a notebook with a pencil anyway, so no worries. Just in case I may take a little longer then usual, I wanted to let you all know c:
And people, keep fishing out new stories and new updates! Read, write, create and revise! This section has been so busy lately, and it's because all of us are doing our best, so let's keep doing that because it is incredibly enjoyable!
AS ALWAYS I use multiple versions of the series. Manga, anime, live-action and some of the games. If you have ever played the SNES emulator game Sailor Moon: Another Story, you'll love this. The game is mainly based off the manga story-line of the arc but has anime elements like how some of their powers are preformed. I highly suggest you download the emulator and game and play it c: it's amazing! Here is a website featuring more info.
In the game like the manga, Serenity wasn't the only one to visit the earth, but all the inner senshi had and each visited a different location on earth. In the game they use a highly advanced spaceship that brought them from the moon to the earth and back. Serenity would visit Prince Endymoin at his palace which in the game is in the ancient past. The inner senshi would visit where they would visit the earth generals. Mercury-Country of Kainness, Mars-Country of Yaga, Venus-Country of Rias and Jupiter-country of Meidas. I dunno whether or not these places actually existed but the world map is based of earth so who knows. Apparently the Earth Kingdom was based in the North Pole in the video game.

Light of Hope
It had taken longer for the preparations of the Gundams due to Pluto and Ami's additional add-ons. When everything was complete they realized the problem just as a sweet aroma filled the hanger.
When they arrived back to the central control room, Makoto was wearing an apron and setting plates down on the extra tables they had set up around the kitchenette.
During the duration of the downloads and mechanics, Neptune had played mother and reminded everyone it was important that their strength be at it's prime and showed them where they would sleep until everything was prepared. Hiiro and Millardo had been the only ones to remain awake the entire time against the others wishes.
Makoto and Rei had woken up before everyone else but Pluto and Ami had worked the whole day through preparing everything.
Ami smiled at Makoto as she cooked and set out the various bowls and plates filled with as many breakfast platters as one could think of. Rei was quietly sipping at Tea as she watched the news on the small TV embedded into the wall by the kitchenette.
It was replaying the horrific events from barely a day ago.
"…after the attack had happened. Princess Relena and a few of her court had been seen following after the Allusive Sailor Senshi of legend. Only hours ago had we gotten word from our beloved princess realizing that despite public panic and claims, they had not been kidnapped. I repeat they have not been kidnapped. We are here speaking with a representative of United Nations Preventors, the leader of the National and International world security, Lady Une." The reporter on the turned to a woman with long flowing soft brown hair and dark blue eyes. She wore a simple black business suit and her aura demanded respect and authority.
"We have gotten word from the princess that she will be returning to a safe location of our choosing since currently she is under Sailor Senshi protection. She has decreed that the Sailor Senshi are not a threat and have protected the people by destroying the threat that destroyed some of the building in an attack initiated by the man who calls himself Dark. We are at war, like we had never been before. In her words, we must come together to put a stop to this outside invasion." Her eyes glared defiantly at the television screen. "With this apology, we are aware that our strongest soldiers and the princess are working with the Sailor Senshi on a solution to this horrible situation. We must be grateful, and apologize for rushing to assume because the Sailor Senshi are different, that they were enemies. They are not, and once our princess returns she will release a public statement to let the public know of our further steps. We will…"
Rei took one last sip of her tea and clicked the remote control, turning it off. A satisfied smirk on her lush red lips.
Eternal Sailor Pluto frowned and sat down next to Rei at the table as others began to descend from the living quarters after their short rest.
Usagi descended the stairs with a stretch while yawning largely. Her eyes began to shine as she smelt the wonderful aroma in the air. "Mako-chan! You really outdid yourself this time!" The blond bunny began to pile her plate with eggs, toast, pancakes and everything else she could find.
Wufei scuffed in disgust at her plate. "Wasteful."
Minako smirked from her cup of milk, and took a bite of her pancakes drenched with strawberry sauce. "You should take Lady Une's suggestion and not assume so quickly."
Rei was quietly swiping her warmed bun with honey butter, and moved to grab a piece of sausage from the plate when a hand snatched five of them at once. She looked up and glared at the man named Duo, who was not only sitting next to Usagi but seemed to be in some sort of contest to out eat her. "You two idiots leave some for the rest of us!"
Usagi stuck out her tongue before returning to her pile of food.
Rei sighed, at least she didn't talk with her mouth full. She smiled as she leaned on her hand and ate a piece of bacon instead.
Duo heavily swallowed his large chunk of food and tore another vicious piece out of his toast while speaking. "Who you callin idiot, babe?"
"Who you calling BABE? I'm not the one wearing a fancy braid." Rei smirked her deep violet-blue eyes only widened in amusement at his sudden pout. Fun.
Quatre smiled as he finished his food and turned to Makoto.
Her lush brown hair was tied up in a messy bun, and she had bits of flour on her frilly pink apron, her green eyes shining as she cleaned and offered to refill everyone's glasses. Delicious food made by a beautiful woman. It was almost like he was looking at a sweet house-wife cooking for he family instead of an alien warrior from the planet Jupiter. He was sure these people were not as bad as they had assumed, not with the love he could taste in every bite of everything she made. It took his gift of empathy to a whole new leven with every bite. He was sad that he was on his last but smiled at the tall brunette. "You should sit down and enjoy your meal before it gets cold. I will clean since I'm already done." He said standing and taking the rag from her hand.
Makoto blushed and smiled, "It's okay really, I love cooking for others and I'm a bit of a neat freak so you don't have to worry."
He smiled and gently pushed her towards his previous seat, his hand warm on the small of her back. "I insist, I love showing my gratitude to people and I am very thankful to have eaten such a wonderful meal." Once she was seated he pushed her in and gave her a plate, his body behind her and his hands gently on her shoulders as he looked at the plethora of food. "You should consider becoming a chef, your so wonderful at hosting."
Her blush was only getting darker with the compliments and his proximity but it quickly disappeared when she noticed the girls eyeing her with evil looks of glee. She could already see the plans weaving through their heads. She sweat dropped when she saw Ami's glasses shine suddenly. Never a good sign. Not you too Ami!
"T-thank you." She murmured before shoving a fork full of French toast into her mouth. The taste melted on her tongue with maple and blueberries. She hummed, it always tasted better after she saw the pleased looks of other people eating her creations. She'd never made food for so many people before. It made her incredibly happy.
Everyone began to idly chitchat amongst themselves as she continued to eat, and she could see Quatre wiping the counters down and cleaning with a happy smile and couldn't help another blush forming. He was rather handsome and he seemed so kind and gentle, but she could see the movement of strong muscles working beneath his simple white button down shirt as he moved about the kitchen. He rolled up his sleeves showing off his strong hands and arms.
Minako suddenly poked her and she chocked slightly from surprise. Managing to finish swallowing the food Minako had made her choke on, she glared at the blond giggling into her hand.
"So how shall we do this?" Rei said standing up and stretching her arms high above her head. They fell into a comfortable crossed position just beneath her chest.
Sailor Pluto daintily wiped her lips with a napkin and stood. "You'll have to use the ship."
"Ship?" Millardo asked, eyeing the beautiful and exotic warrior woman wearily.
Duo belched and pat his stomach, Usagi mimicking his patting beside him. She won. "Space ship?"
Ami's watery blue eyes shined and she smiled. "Normally we wouldn't need to use it, our bodies can handle the vacuum of space easily but with you coming along we don't really have a choice."
Trowa had been standing by the wall, a now empty plate in his hands as he moved to wash it in the sink. When he was finished his green eye glistened curiously, his soft reddish brown hair falling over his nose and to the side of his face. "If you don't need a space ship, why have one?"
Minako winked at him, her sky blue eyes sparklingly with mirth. She flipped her long pale hair behind her shoulder. "Besides the fact that it's extremely cool? We used it in the past, before we were reincarnated. It was used as a personal escort service for important meetings."
Uranus frowned. "But it was used to travel to Earth despite having been forbidden."
Usagi smiled brightly and looked around for Mamoru but he had not come down. She frowned and stood. "I'll be right back."
As the others began to bicker about themselves, it was unnoticed when she had left despite her words, or that anyone was following.
She came to his room and opened the door gently without knocking. Inside she saw him sleeping and moved to the bed. His face was troubled and he was sweating. She grabbed a cloth from the dresser and knelt by his side, wiping at his face. When he woke up, his blue eyes flashed silver and she leaned back by the bed. He wasn't looking at her. "Mamo-chan?"
He was looking at the door, where Relena was watching them.
Usagi blushed. "P-prince Endymoin… heh."
"I'm sorry, I didn't mean to intrude but your leaving soon… and I wanted to talk with you alone." Relena said quietly, making sure to look down as to not eye the Prince's lean and muscular chest.
Usagi's eyes narrowed in an annoyed and childish fashion at the girls pink cheeks but brushed it aside. She was trying to work on her jealousy. "I'll be right there." The blond turned and kissed Mamoru when Relena had looked away but Mamoru had watched as the Cinq Princess had eyed them out of the corner of her eyes.
He grabbed the back of Usagi's head and closed his eyes, kissing her deeper. When he pulled away his thumb grazed her lower lip. "Be careful bun."
She smiled, her sapphire eyes soft and shiny, her cheeks tinted pink and her lips glowing in a happy smile. She felt warm. "You too, I love you."
He hugged her and sent her off.
She would have frowned at the fact that he had not said it back, again but his kiss had spoken volumes that his lips would not say. She knew he loved her, and she knew she loved him too. She let that quiet her doubts as she left and gently closed the door behind her.
Relena timidly eyed the younger girl, someone younger then her by five years but already in a more mature relationship then she had ever been in. She couldn't deny her jealousy. Usagi was so special. A strong and powerful princess of myth and a warrior of legend. She was sweet and innocent and absolutely beautiful. With ankle length sun kissed gold hair and shining dark crystallized blue eyes wrapped by think long lashes… she couldn't help but be jealous of the girl.
Not only that, but the one she liked would be leaving with this pretty sprite, for how long she didn't know. She frowned. "You'll be leaving soon and I needed to ask you…" she sighed, she wasn't used to this. "I need to ask you for advice."
Usagi looked at her oddly then smiled and tilted her head with her finger to her chin. "I don't know what kind of advice I can offer you, your so much more experienced then I am… but shoot it at me and I'll do my best."
Her grin was warm and sincere. Relena smiled and knew her decision to come to her had been right. "I don't know whether or not I am okay with just handing over my position to you… although everything that is happening now… makes me think that it was never my position in the first place. Not now that our… dimensions… have collided. I can't compete with you." Her soft cornflower blue eyes were downcast and she glared at the floor like a child whose lollipop was stolen. She hated the feeling, she felt ridiculous and weak. "But I am going to do my best to try. I love this world, even if partially it isn't mine…"
Usagi smiled as she interrupted. "It's all of ours, our world. It doesn't belong to anyone."
Relena eyed the door from where she had spied the two lovers. "It is his though… isn't it?"
Usagi smiled at the door, her heart fluttering in her chest. He was rarely that passionate with her, and it was refreshing. "Yes, I suppose your right. Technically it's his just as the moon is mine." She giggled and it sounded almost like tinkling bells. "Maybe it would be better phrased that he belongs to the earth as I belong to the moon."
"You belong to the moon?" Relena questioned. She was a smart girl, not nearly as much as the guys and no where near the intelligent blue haired girl Ami or that beautiful warrior Sailor Pluto… but she still didn't understand what was going on around her. She really did have to learn to adapt better. She thought she was good at it, until all of these circumstances began to unravel around her.
"Think of it like this. Every planet gives birth to it's own life, and to protect that planet's precious children, the planet gifts a single soul with it's power to protect both the planet and it's people. This soul is called a Sailor Senshi, and only one from every planet is granted this special ability." She thought of Chibiusa and smiled. "When that duty is fulfilled, a new generation takes their place when they are no longer needed."
"So you aren't the first Sailor Moon?" Relena asked curious.
The blond bunny sweat dropped. "Well, we all are, the first of our planets kind." Her sweet chrub face became dark with memories of a long forgotten past. "A long time ago… we were the first. There was no chance for a second generation. Everyone, everything had been wiped out. If it weren't for my mother, Queen Serenity… there would be no hope for any of our planets or another generation..."
Relena's face was sober. An intergalactic extinction had taken place. They had only been told briefly about the whereabouts and the up bringings of the Sailor Senshi when they first graced the preventors radar. "I'm sorry." She thought of all the planets and their current state. In her… original dimension… there had been no life sustainable on any of the planets other then earth. Nor on the moon. Was it now different with the merge? "Is there… still life on the other planets?"
Usagi gave a boisterous laugh and sounded like a kid in a candy store. She smiled in amusement and motioned for Relena to follow her as they walked. "No, and we're not aliens either. Not really anyway. We were all reborn here, with human families, human mothers. Technically, were about as much as an earthling as you are." She looked devious as she latched onto Relena's arm as they walked. "Well, mostly. When I'm Sailor Moon or even when Serenity's spirit takes over my body, it's different but right now, I'm not all that different from you."
Relena frowned and raised her eyebrow. "You can transform into a magical warrior, and you have wings. I don't see how we're that similar."
Before they entered into the main room where everyone else was, Usagi stopped her short. "Everyone has some weird talent. Those guys over there, they're not like other people either… are they?"
Relena's eyes widened, Usagi may be a bit naïve and innocent but the girl was very observant when it came to people. There was a reason she was so comfortable with the blond despite her own personal feeling, the girl just seemed to connect and understand people on a deeper level then others. Like she could see into the secret depths of everyones heart. "Are you an empath?"
Usagi smiled. "Sort of, not really in a conventional way I guess. Like Qautre-san, but his is pretty powerful in it's own way."
Relena smiled. She really was over thinking everything. "You really are kind of like us then… aren't you."
"I bleed just like everyone. I cry, I sleep, I eat a lot and I'm actually pretty clumsy and childish." Usagi said, none of her flaws taking away from her happy aura. "People are people, no matter where they come from or where we live. We all have our own flaws and something that makes us special. We all have a desire to be closer to each other. To make friends, to find love."
"Love…" Relena murmured, her eyes on Hiiro. "How long have you been in love with Endymoin-sama… when did you guys first get together."
Usagi sweat dropped. "Which time, we had a lot of firsts…" She laughed embarrassedly as she thought of it and tugged on her ponytail nervously playing with the strands. In the past they had fell in love, in the present they had fallen in love, forgotten and remembered... a few times actually through the three years they had been together. "I guess you can say, I've always been in love with him and I think it's the same for him. We were reborn into this world after we had died promising to find each other again. We dreamt of each other every night until we found each other."
Relena had to swoon, her tale really was romantic. She eyed Hiiro sadly. "How did you know he loved you back."
Usagi saw where Relena was looking and her evil-match-making thoughts began to take place. She'd blame Minako later. "Do you love him?"
"Yes…" Relena sighed, her face red. She couldn't hide it very well. She was never really good at that. "It's been one-sided for a very long time…"
Usagi frowned. "How long?"
Relena sweat dropped. "Five years…"
"Five years!" Usagi shouted. A few of the others saw them in the doorway and cast them strange looks before continuing their conversations. Relena shushed her, so she spoke more quietly. "Why haven't you confessed?"
Relena smiled sadly. "I don't need to, he already knows my feelings."
"Does he really? Cause guys are really slow when it comes to knowing what's on our minds." Usagi placed her hands on her hips and jut out her lower lip. She knew that problem all too well.
A giggle escaped Relena's lips and it brought a smile to the blonds face. "Usagi-chan, your really cute, you know that?"
A blush stained her cheeks. "You too Relena-hime!" the others waved at them to hurry, and Usagi pulled Relena back before she could move forward. "What advice did you want before we forget?"
Relena stopped short but thought about it and shook her head smiling. "It's. Thank you, but after our talk it helped me realize what I needed to do." She left before Usagi could question her further, leaving the blond to tilt her head curiously. She hated not knowing things, but she shrugged and took off to Rei and Minako's side, taking their arms in hers as she looked over the hanger. The gundams were gone.
"Are they already on the ship?" Usagi asked curiously. That was fast.
Uranus smiled and ruffled the top of Usagi's bangs. "Yes. Your going to make a stop at the moon before heading directly to Kinmoku."
"The moon?" Usagi whispered surprised.
Pluto smiled at her softly. "Ami and I have added quite a few things to their gundams and they need a proper place to test some of the controls out."
"I wanna know some of what that is right now." Duo asked popping up behind Pluto, the tall woman smirked. He really reminded her of Usagi in a way.
As they were walking along a thin railing, the catwalk led to a pretty massive ship hovering above the marble floored hanger where the gundams were originally standing. Ami pulled out her computer and typed away.
"Most of the additions were pure necessity. I downloaded exact coordinates in the new GPS system I created, with controls that will directly set them to arrive on the Moon, Earth and Kinmoku. Kind of like shortcut buttons you can press and autopilot will take care of the rest. Along with the full mapping system I routed it to also be used as a tracking system for each of our new communication earrings. Oh and of course they have a direct link to our watches-"
Wufei looked curiously and realized that indeed every girl wore a watch. Uranus smirked at him when she made hers appear out of thin air. He scowled. "What's with the watches?"
Ami smiled, not minding the interruption. They needed to understand anyway. "They have a small screen on the back of the face, and control button on the inside to communicate with each other. The screen acts like a mirror camera, relaying the scene we point the watch to, to whomever we contact. Anyway, I have also added upgraded cloaking devices. Instead of simply being invisible to a radar, you will actually appear invisible if someone is looking directly at the machines. Pluto had also had a great idea to instill energy shields using the power from the flight upgrades-"
Duo scratched the side of his face. "Flight upgrades?"
"Yes, you'll have a lever that boosts speed to the highest acceleration possible and once you reach the maximum speed, there will be a button to open the worm hole. With the "favorites GPS locations" I added you don't have to type an exact location before this process, only switch those specific switches."
Hiiro looked impressed, his mind already processing and devoting these changes to memory. "What else is there?"
Sailor Pluto smirked at him, her deep garnet colored as proud. "The additions you'll need to practice will be the new weaponry we installed."
"Oooh, sounds fun." Duo smirked rubbing his hands together. "The God of Death is about to get more godly!"
Sailor Saturn giggled and he jumped, he hadn't seen her there. "God of death, is what you call yourself?"
His deep cobalt, almost purple blue eyes seem to smirk at her cockily. "What can I say, I may run and I may hide but I never tell a lie. I'm shinigami!"
"If you are the god of death, then I must be the goddess of death." Her sweet, pretty violet colors eyes seemed to frost over, like purple opals covered in snow. Her dark almost black-purple hair shimmered around her face, ending by her chin and her pale skin was only extenuated by all the dark colors of her fuku.
He couldn't help the shiver that ran down his spine and cursed himself for being suddenly scared of a small pre-teen girl.
"What are the add-ons?" Trowa asked quietly, he was curious what his Heavy-Arms was capable after their advanced technology and power we're calculated into his gundam.
Ami and Pluto smirked. The blue haired girl shifted her glasses and sent a playful smile at Usagi. "We noticed the gundams have some sort of tiara…"
Rei and Minako grinned at Ami in amusement. "No way?"
Ami nodded. "The Tiara's can now be removed and battle, they're much sharper then they had previously and are used to slice."
Usagi's eyes sparkled. "So cool! Your gundam's are like Sailor Moon's Tiara now!"
Hiiro frowned at the girl. "You don't have a tiara as Sailor Moon."
She smirked and waved her hand dismissively. "It's not normally worn in this henshin, but I have a tiara and mask with special purposes."
Minako jumped up and snapped her fingers. "Oh yeah I forgot about my mask, I have one too!"
The two blonds took their hands and gave the V sign for victory.
Quatre chuckled at them. "I get the feeling they do this often?"
Makoto smiled at him and nodded, "More then you probably think. V-babe and Usa-babe."
"So I can call them babe?" Duo smirked.
Minako latched her arm around his shoulders and pouted at how awkward the position was. He was much to tall, and instead looped her arm through his. "Of course, Duo-babe."
Wufei smirked. "A taste of your own medicine Maxwell?"
The brunette could only smirk, "No way, I kinda like it. I demand all women to call me Duo-babe!" He sent a flirtatious smirk at the genius pretty short blue haired sprite. He had a thing for girls with short hair. "You can just call me babe."
She blushed timidly and moved back away from him and bumped into Wufei who caught her arms and steadied her. He sent her a smirk while looking down at her flushed face. "Ahh… the ship is almost ready!" She flew up the catwalk and opened the door.
Wufei chuckled. Even he couldn't deny how cute that was. He stopped walking and smacked the side of his face. He scowled and kept walking.
Sailor Pluto was thoroughly amused, and her mind drifted to the new possibilities of this different timeline. "Wing Zero now has the ability to shoot energy beams from it's mechanical wings. Shenlong-"
"Nataku." Wufei grumped, his arms crossed and he huffed, looking away haughtily.
Sailor Pluto smirked, her amusement only peaked. "-Nataku, now has the capability to shoot lasers from the gundam's eye sockets. Heavy-Arms now as saber blades locked into the legs. Deathpsyche now has wings like Zero where cable like ribbons can wrap around a target and induce lightening."
Duo's eyes shined. "So cool!"
Sailor Neptune smirked at Pluto and their little charge. "That's reminiscent of Saturn's Death Ribbon Revolution."
Duo looked at the small girl again shocked. "You can do that?"
She frowned but suddenly smirked and gave a little giggle. "Mine is not so harmless."
A chill ran down his spine again and he laughed nervously. "Well thanks anyway?"
She smiled at him in child-like amusement. "Your welcome, shinigami."
Pluto cleared her throat and continued. "Sandrock now has mini stun guns imbedded in the shield and the curved twin blades have a saber like quality now. The Stun Shield will stun another machine for only ten minutes."
Everyone hummed with appreciation for their new designs. They were excited to see how they preformed.
As everyone shared their goodbyes and farewells, Hiiro had noticed that the prince of earth was absent just as Relena was walking towards him. Her pretty cornflower blue eyes were downcast and she patted down invisible wrinkles in her newly washed lavender sundress. They had all washed up since the battle.
She smiled up at him almost shyly. "Be careful."
He would have to be stupid not to notice her feelings for him, as trained and observant as he was about his surrounding and the people in them, he couldn't miss it. His normally cold and withdrawn eyes softened slightly. He did care for her, and as new as his regained humanity was, he still understood that he did not return those specific feelings. "You too."
He pat her on the shoulder briefly and turned and boarded the ship without another word.
Millardo and Noin stood by the blushing Cinq Princess as the ship began to rise in the massive hanger and headed towards the closed roof of the underground base high above them, as it neared the ceiling Noin looked worried as nothing opened to the outside. "It's going to crash if it doesn't open."
Uranus smirked and crossed her arms, tilting her hip to the side against the railing. "That's not really how it works."
The ship fizzled out suddenly like a fuzzy television and disappeared before it crashed against the ceiling.
Millardo gave a soft whistle. "Incredible. Truly remarkable."
Neptune smiled at them, her aura cold like the sea. "Shall we deliver you to the preventors now?"
Relena frowned, still silently staring at the ceiling. A movement across the room caught her eye and she locked her vision with that of the handsome prince of earth. He was staring at her intensely and it made her both uncomfortable and oddly flattered. A blush stained her cheeks when he smirked and left through the elevator.
Uranus pat her stomach as it growled. "How about we eat more of that delicious food first?"
Saturn smiled as she ran towards the kitchenette. "I call dibs on the crème pie!"
… . … . … .. … . … . …
They had made it to the moon impossibly fast, the girls eyeing the moon base from the war with distaste. They now knew, it had never been there before. As the men viewed the surface as they landed on the dark side of the moon their jaws dropped.
Massive and intricate ruins were everywhere. Pillars of marble and statues of silver were torn and wrecked, a powerful force seeming to have obliterated entire buildings sparing the foundations and littering the area with otherworldly debris. Otherworldly indeed, only the palace was still standing and not in much better condition as the silver encrusted roof was cracked and pillars and stone broken. It was like an ancient city from Rome, almost perfectly persevered but in tatters all the same.
"This is the moon kingdom?" From their memories with the knowledge of the moon, it had never been there before. It was a pleasure, they had to inwardly admit, to see such a marvelous sight.
"Yes…" Usagi whispered, her eyes watery but not tears falling. Rei came up behind her as they excited the ship. Unlike the men they wore no space gear as they headed into the palace.
"Where are they going?" Hiiro asked, attempting to follow.
Makoto and Minako held out their arms and blocked him. "The High Tower of Prayer, you can't enter unless you are apart of the royal court."
"What's that?" Duo questioned. He envied their ability to not be inside the suits.
Ami frowned after the girls as they disappeared. "A memory…" she turned to them and turned her visor on once again and opened her mini-computer. "Anyway, it doesn't matter where they go, you need to practice."
Duo smirked at her and placed his arms around her shoulder. "I love it when a woman takes command."
She blushed and stepped away quickly and easily, he floated slowly in a awkward position with the gravity change and pouted. He followed the men and entered his gundam as they exited the ship and tried out their new toys. He yipped and hollered as he tried out the new black mechanical wings on his gundam.
… . … .. … . …
Usagi knelt down at the computer memory image of her mother, as she knelt and prayed for a safe journey and success in saving their worlds.
"My darling daughter. You have become even stronger." The small foot tall holographic image of her mother cooed softly.
He mothers soul and her memories having been turned into a computer program. Usagi smiled tearfully. "I wish you could be here physically."
"I know…" the fair whispered and daintily brought her clasped hands to her small fairy like face. She knew she was just a computer memory, nothing more then a soul inside a computer program, but she was made by a mother, to be a mother and she wanted nothing more then to comfort and touch her daughter, knowing sadly, she could not do so. Because she wasn't real. "I wish you well on your journey. I know that everything will be alright." She turned to the silent form of the kneeling Martian princess and smiled. "My daughters, you will take care of everything. I just know it. Have faith in yourselves."
The image of the queen faded and tears fell from the girls eyes. She was Princess Serenity's mother, but they all remembered how she adored the senshi as if they were her own children. A wonderful and wise gentle queen. She was forever missed, even when humanity had forgotten, they remembered.
Rei wiped her tear and helped Usagi stand. "We should go now."
The girls walked hand in hand as they left the palace. Their bond unbreakable and true.
… . … .. … . …
After they had all boarded the ship once again, it was only a matter of time before the ship emerged from the colorful tunnel they traveled through. The men around the room felt slightly sick for the duration of the worm-hole but once they were all on the other side they shared the same looks as the girls, awe and fascination.
A gigantic red planet, bigger then Jupiter created their sides. The bright fiery red color dominating the planet, with continents and islands with yellow and green colors. It was beautiful, and the three moons that circled the planet were just as beautiful.
Three small moons. One Purple, one green and one blue.
"Amazing!" Makoto cried as she eyed the sight. They had never really traveled like this since the Silver Millennia and they had never gotten the pleasure to visit Kinmoku at the end of the Sailor Wars. They had bypassed everything to the Sagittarius Zero Star, the Galaxy Cordon. They had only briefly heard of the home that Galaxia and Chaos had originally destroy.
Before any of them could blink, a beam of light struck and hit the ship. Sirens began to go off and they could see smoke clouding the windows from outside.
"We've been hit!" Minako shouted in shock as she rushed to the controls.
Ami frowned, her blue eyes panicked. "There's no time for that! We're going to crash!"
There wasn't anytime, as they all flew across the haul of the ship, smashing into walls and desks.
Duo grabbed Ami and shielded her the blunt edge of the central control desk, grunting in pain as his back hit the corner sharply.
Rei's purple eyes were hazy, her vision barely managing to make out everyone's flying forms as the ship rolled and tumbled violently. Her hand reached out to Usagi, who reached back for her, before a loud crash sounded in the room like a deafening explosion and they ship violently rocked and Usagi flew from her each and someone grabbed her from behind.
Everything went black.
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Long chapter c: I LOVE IT! I jotted down the ideas on paper and want to get out a couple updates before the laptop is taken from me :C SAD!
I'm going to read MegaKat's story and GoTunks by the end of the day. Things have been so hectic and busy with me moving and my ex demanding the laptop back… Indian giver… anyway everyone is doing such an awesome job at making this section lively!
In the past two months, the new stories and updates have made my freaking life! It's only going to get better the more we do, so let's keep at it people! Thank you so much for all your hard work and I promise to do the same!
Here's some manga/anime references.
Again, at the top of the page there is info about Sailor Moon: Another story, from where the ship was created from for the girls. It was mainly used by Minako and Artemis, but Minako and the girls and Serenity would sneak to earth using this and visit their general lovers while Serenity and Endymoin met.
Ami's glassed shining! In the anime and manga, she often had her own devious moments like the other girls and her glasses would come out and she'd put them on in a comical manner and they'd shine lol it's a Japanese animation/manga thing and I love it!
The girls often play match-making in the anime and manga, in the anime all the girls except Usagi were crushing on the starlights. The girls found it funny that Ami was in fact the number one fan, having a golden member club card, which made the others envious and proud lol, I love the humor of the series. It had everything!
Sailor Saturn's power Death Ribbon Revolution is the correct name to the attack that ends the world, people often mistake it for Death Reborn Revolution, as did some translations of this phrase. This power is thousands of black ribbons that wrap around everything stemming from her Silence Glaive. If she uses this attack everything dies, and so does she. Her other powerful attack is Silence Glaive Surprise a powerful blast from her Glaive and her final attack is a defensive power, Silence Wall which throws up a purple barrier from the staff.
Sadly the anime gave her only these two attacks. Every senshi had multiple powers the anime left out. The anime gave her Silence Glaive Surprise and had that phrase be the attack that ends all but that was a mistake on the anime. Still love the anime though! :C
Queen Serenity in the manga, is a computer holographic computer program, the Queen new her daughter and the senshi would need her one day and had placed all of her memories and soul into a program she created. That small fairy like image of the queen wasn't ever real, but in a sense is like it's the dead queens soul, only around due to the memories and software. In real life, she was also incredibly tall, she was much taller then Usagi and Mamoru, some say speculate she was a tall thin elf like giant, at eight feet give or take.
In the anime, she was real but a ghost kind of. I'm going with the manga version on this c:
Also Kinmoku was mentioned but never described. The Fireball Princess, Kakyuu has a color scene of red and yellows and a bit of green. One of her symbols is the olive branch so I made the planet based off those colors and we know nothing of the starlight senshi's home planets as the manga only said they served Kakyuu on Kinmoku. So I figured star, light, guardian senshi. I'd make them senshi of the moons orbiting the planet c:
Saris Yui : Thank you so much that makes me happy!
Light-Sakura : Reviews are hard to write I often have trouble coming up with anything to say but the fact that you took the time to makes me really happy and I am very grateful to you for it c: I hope this chapter was interesting, they're on Kinmoku now, so I hope this chapter was interesting but the next one will definitely be more so.
TopazDragon : I feel bad for Mamoru, most of the hate comes from the dub, cause he is a real jerk dub wise. He's not much better in the subtitles either :/ I wish the anime had given him the powers the manga did. Tuxedo La Smoking Bomber seemed pretty cool lol I giggled at the name though haaa then again I outright laugh at Star Gentle Uterus! There are some funny fanmade comics on Deviantart and one has the starlights making fun of Uranus, until Maker uses her power lmao c; I love that site! I hope you liked the modifications! I rushed the training a bit but you'll see them in action later on! Hiiro definitely obsessed for a while, and we'll see more on that as the story progresses c: he's got quite a bit of his humanity in this story but he still can't shake who he grew up as c: as for Hotaru thank you c: I'm good at writing the senshi but the characters from gundam is rather hard for me so I often watch the subtitled eps on Youtube or read the manga online c: I found out from MegaKat that there is a new gundam wing manga in the making!
JPandS : I absolutely love your reviews c: their always so well thought out, nice and informative c: I have a bad habit of not editing before I post, I get in such a rush but I plan to reedit all my chapters when I can find spare time and begin to upload the revisions. I see I gotta fix a lot of grammar lmao :C but some chapters I noticed also lack detail and description so I want to fix those as well. And I WILL! But in the mean time I'll take a little more time with the new chapters before I update. This review of yours make me extremely happy. It's all the things an author hopes to hear so thank you so much! Writing Ami is so fun to write, cause I like her kind of character in manga. Relena and Mamoru need more lovin c: and if Duo weren't around, the guys would either be silent or stiffs hehe! Saturn to me is such a beautiful and tragic character in the manga. Unlike the anime her body wasn't only weak but had been burned as a child and replaced by android parts. She's such a gentle soul but incredibly powerful and has the personalities of both a child and an adult. She can talk easily with her senshi half as if it were a different person which is so cool! I'm also happy you like the outers role in this because I plan to have separate scenes in chapters, keeping everyone updated in the guys and inners ongoing in space and the outers and Mamoru, Relena and Millardo on Earth. They're all so vital to the end of the story c: Hope you liked this one!
Nequam-Tenshi : Thank you! I love Ami and Setsuna, and their characters are a joy to write c: I hope you liked this installment!
I plan to update a few of my stories today so I'll be busy because this laptop is about to be taken from me, but I will update when I can use the library computers! C: Hope you all enjoyed and I love hearing your feedback so review if you like and see you next update!
