wAuthor's Notes: Sorry to all who enjoyed my Blaze Of Glory story. I lost the notes I had for that my save data for the game. Not to mention real life came and bit me in the ass. Busy rebuilding the one so I can do the other so I will get back to that story. I will in the meantime keep those who have favorited me and that story happy. Not sure how many of you like crossovers but going to give you one anyways. Noticed this was not done the way it should of been in the entire fandom history of both series and surprised by this considering how many are fans. Even more so, it's an anime crossover. Disclaimer holds which ones. So have fun with this outing into my two fav animes while I get back to where I can work on Blaze of Glory. ^_^ I wouldn't mind someone Beta-reading this and helping me out but you gotta know the canons of both.

Chapter 1: When the Moon Hits Your Head Like A Blonde Odango
The sun was out over the city of Tokyo and not a cloud in sight. The air temperature was warm but not too warm, what blonde girls who steal porridge from bears would call just right. It was a perfect day to enjoy and days like this was usually peaceful. But peace doesn't usually last and this is in tandem with Murphy's Law that whatever can go wrong will and does go wrong.
Today was one such day as several columns of smoke could be seen coming from a part of Tokyo City. This area is known as the Juuban District and while people were running to get clear, they were used to panic and such as well as those who dealt with it. What was different was the enemy this time...
A young woman flew through the air and landed, back first against the side of a small Honda and growled as she fell off it, denting the door inward and breaking the glass. Landing on her hand and knees, she slowly stood up and prepared to used the only attack she had that was effective against these things. Her raven black hair flying from the wind of another of her companions attacks that were explosive in nature. She was dressed in a white bodice with a red skirt, gloves, boots, and a bow on the front and back.
Holding up her hand, she yelled out, "AKU RYO TAI SAN!" The blast of spiritual energy from the attack caught the creature full on as it chargedand vaporized it. Looking around, things were going better than the start. She looked and saw one of the things flying through the air and doing it's impression of what she did just moments ago.
"You alright Jupiter?" She called out as a brunette, taller than her and dressed similarly but with green as her color noded. "Yeah Mars. Doing fine." She replied as she caught one of the monsters by the hand and use a Judo hold and toss to send it onto the ground before delivering her attack. "SUPREME THUNDER!" At point blank range, knocking it down before a beam bisected it and vanquished it.
"Thanks Venus! You and Pluto do clean up nicely!" Jupitet yelled to a blonde girl in well...let's face it. There were nine girls all dressed in the same or similar outfit but with different colors as they are the Sailor Senshi. Behind Sailor Venus and Sailor Pluto was a blue-haired Senshi, Mercury and she had her visor out and was typing fast on her mini Super-Computer. "There, more coming in to our right!" Behind her were two cats, one white and one black and both with crescent moon marks on their hed. "Senshi! Get Ready!"
"Is there any end to these guys!" Venus said, angry and frustrated. They been going at it along side the majority of the team and Tuxedo Kamen as the Prince of Earth landed. "Don't know." This battle had been ongoing for the last couple hours and started with a dozen of these things just appearing out of thin air, only Pluto and Mars sensing them just before they tore out and started to attack innocent civilians. This is what spurned them to action.
Uranus just brandished her Space Sword and said, "Ugh. So same plan as before. We knock'em down and let Venus, Mars, and Pluto deal the kill shot right?" The black cat nodded and said, "Yes."
Jupiter smiled as she readied her hand with the fingers curled and palm open, lightning crackling through and said, "Fine by me!" Before charging into the fray with no weapons and starting to deliver punches and kicks enfused with her elements of Lightning and Wood. While her attacks didn't kill, they packed a punch when combined with the Jovian Senshi's physical strength and allowed her to at least do some damage and toss them around.
Not that these things were without their own attacks as a few launched what looked like a multitude of flaming arrows. Mercury countered
with her own attack, "MERCURY SHINE AQUA ILLUSION!" Streams of water/ice flying out everywhere to snuff the firey arrows out before they could hit and explode.
Pluto blocked a claw with her staff and twirled it, hitting the demonic-looking creature in the face before the Garnet Orb was leveled at it nd she spoke her command silently. "Dead Scream." The sphere of energy taking the opponent full on and destroying it utterly, black dust blowing into the air.
Luna looked to her friend and mate, Artemis and nodded before a shockwave from above hit. It was a reminder to those fighting below that they weren't the only ones with a tought fight as their two most powerful were duking it out with the thing that had to be the one in charge of this battle. Tuxedo Kamen himself was occupied keeping Mercury safe so she could see the enemy waves coming and provide support from behind. He looked up and was nervous for his love.
Sailor Moon used her Eternal Tier again to block the incoming blast of black energy as she was knocked through the air in reverse from the direction she started. She grunted and sweated under the strain of holding back this energy but with a savage cry, snapped the energy beam and broke it. "Why are you attacking us!" She yelled, more worried for her friends below than herself and the other Senshi fighting with her. She landed on a roof as the being came down.
It looked like a Human woman except for having ruby skin and black eyes, as well as being mishapen. "Why should I tell you deary? It's your time to die pathetic human!" She was about to attack again before snarling and teleporting out of the attack of the other senshi, metal flashing through the space . Her purple fuku and outfit only slightly altered with the eight pointed crystal over her broach as well as the deadly weapon she had in hand, a glaive.
"You okay Princess?" Ask the youngest of the current senshi as Sailor Moon, leader of the Sailor Senshi and Princess of the Moon Kingdom nodded. "Thanks Saturn." Saturn nodded and joined Moon side by side while waiting for the opponent to appear again. This is the game that had been played since the start of this side of the fight. The waves of lesser demons came first, with Moon and Saturn having the easiest time dealing with them.
Than came that woman-thing and the battle got even harder as the others told her and Saturn they would handle the obvious cannon fodder while they two deal with the one in charge. So it had been a game of cat and mouse with this foe. A few attacks on either side cutting through but mostly due to the power levels, an even match.
It kind of grated on Sailor Moon a bit as she tried to think a battle through for the first time since Galaxia and being on her own. She opened with trying to figure out why this person was attacking and maybe appeal to them to stop. That didn't work out and left her with a feeling she didn't like.
Saturn; on the other hand, was taking it all in stride as was her need to do. She was the Senshi of Destruction and Rebirth after all and if it came down to it, she and Moon could pull out their big guns but they needed civilians as far from the battle as possible so no one would be harmed by any combination of their attacks.
"You think we got clearance to finally put an end to this?" Saturn asked as Moon looked down and made a hand signal to Mercury. The only answer was a negative which would of made the normally cheery senshi curse. "Not according to Mercury. Remember what your little Surprise did a half-mile out."
Saturn nodded as she remembered Moon telling her about how the shockwave from that attack was felt out to where she was trying to climb up to deal with Queen Nehllina of the Black Moon. Moon herself recounted of the big things she'd pulled off over the years including a group attack with the Senshi when Princess Snow Kaguya tried to freeze the Earth over.
They than looked over their shoulders and dived to either side as a blast of black energy cut through the air where they had been. "Damn it! You humans are more annoying than Dragons!" Yelled their opponent as she was floating in mid air.
Sailor Moon had been using direct attacks but smiled as it was time to pull out an old favorite from her early days. Grabbing her tiara, it came off her head and she held it like it was a discus. The metal itself glowing and spinning till it w as a disc of light. "MOON TIARA ACTION!" She threw the energy disc and smiled as the monster dodged it easily but she wasn't done yet.
"Is that the best you got?" Asked the woman before Sailor Moon did a leap and quick twist in the air. With nothing more than that and a mental command, she turned the disc into a boomerang that came back to hit the bitch in the back. With an explosion of light and power, the foe was sent down to the ground, only stopping a short way by her own power.
"Didn't see that coming did you?" Sailor Moon said with a smile as she floated down on her wings. Saturn landed next to her and lowered the glaive with a look in her eyes of absolute calm.
"Give up and surrender. You chose this fight so can leave it at any time." Saturn said while walking towards her along side Moon. The other demons were pulling back as the strange woman slowly floated back upright. The other Senshi fell in behind their leader ans Jupiter gave her own edge to what was hoped to be the final confrontation.
"Yeah, bug out if you know what's good for you bitch!" She uttered with affirmations from the rest.
Sailor Moon leveled her tier at their foe and spoke. "I want to know why you attacked us. Why you attacked Tokyo. What are you looking for?" The Sailor Wars did leave Sailor Moon with something changed in her beyond being the odango, blonde, klutzy, ditz of a Senshi. She was more willing to now confront a foe. But that neither here nor there as this was the first enemy to come to Tokyo since the Sailor Wars ended.
"You really don't know do you?" The woman replied in a question as she floated back and than with a wave of each hand, the other monsters exploded into masses of darkness that she than drew to herself while bringing her hands together above her head. "DIE YOU PATHETIC HUMANS! FOR THE GLORY OF OUR DARK QUEEN!"
Realizing what was about to happen, Sailor Moon responded the only way she knew as her Tier vanished into it's subspace pocket and her hands closed to around her broach, the crystal inside opening into a lotus of the purest silver crystal. "NO YOU WON'T" Her outfit changing from her Eternal fuku to her Princess Gown. "IN THE NAME OF THE MOON!" The crystal already fiercely glowing from the strength and willpower she was putting into it.
"Princess Serenity! No! You'll kill yourself!" Yelled Venus as Tuxedo Kamen grabbed her. "If she doesn't try to stop that attack, that woman may blow half of the city to dust!" He yelled as the clash of the two energies was causing a windstorm and clouds to form with lightning dancing between them.
They unleashed their attacks at the same time. The monster-woman sending out a blast of black and red energy as she yelled out something unintelligable. Princess Serenity yelling out, "MOON ETERNAL POWER!" Sending out a raw blast of the purest energy. The two met and than flashed than nothing for a few minutes.
"What?" The woman asked as Pluto's eyes went wide. "NO!" She sensed it before it came as the two energies had clashed and in doing so, tore the fabric of spacetime. "RUN!" She yelled but too late as the tear formed with a sound so rending and painful that all went to their knees. Than the entire battlefield went white as a bright light exploded from nowhere for a brief second before what could only be an explosion rocked the area. When the light faded, all that was left was a massive crater that was still smoldering and windows broken for a full mile as well as an earthquake that registered a 6 on the Richter Scale. Nothing left of the Senshi at all or their foe.
Now for those that know of M-Theory and String Theory or follow Occult practices, it would come as no surprise that beyond our Universe is a massive and infinite Multiverse filled with bubbles of spacetime made of different dimensions with their own laws of Physics and Magic. Normally, they are kept out of touch with each other but certain events magically can cause contact. One such event caught the eye of a being who long dreamed and she smiled. "The one who represents her is coming this way? The Order to my Chaos...amusing." This being had the power so with a grab, she changed the trajectory of the magical wormhole that had been created and chose to send it to some place else with a mental smile as this being also decided to at least make sure it wouldn't lead to destruction on a massive scale. It was time to have an amusing dream now...
It was a bright and sunny day over a slightly hilly plain, a few trees catching the light wind in the comfortable air. Shame Murphy's Law chose such days to drop things out of thin air, sometimes literally on the two travelers walking down a dirt and gravel road. There was an obvious height different between the two.
"So let me try to get this right. We are going to Saillune to see our friends Amelia, Sylphiel, and Zel after still not finding a sword for me and look at the libraries their to dig up information on a magical sword. Is that right Lina?" Asked the tall, blonde, muscular and handsome human male with a sword strapped to his back and bluish-black plates of armor over his shoulders and chest.
The one he was addressing as Lina was a shorter, petite, redhead dressed today in a yellow blouse and red pants with a sash to hold the pants up. She wore black gloves and a mantle that had black shoulder guards with a red gem in each and yellow trim. Strapped to her side was a short sword and around her forehead was a black headband with gold sphere earrings on each ear. The final bit as a set of four blood red stones. One around her neck, another around her waist and the final two on each wrist. "Yes Gourry, that is what we are going to do. I'm tired of you breaking swords in the middle of a fight and having to repair it on the spot."
Gourry, the man, nodded. "Okay. So how do we know Amelia and Zel again?" This stopped Lina cold in her tracks as she put her hand to her face and was growling before saying under her breath, "Do not Dragon Slave him. Do not Dragon Slave him." She repeated it like a mantra before finally slapping him with the back of her other hand and laying him out. "Yogurt-Brain." Was all she said to him before she stormed off a bit and than stopped, feeling a prickle on the back of her neck as her hairs stood up on end.
Looking up, she saw clouds begin to darken and form out of nothing while spiraling around. "Lina? What's going on?" Gourry asked as he sat up and looked up at the forming clouds.
"Wish I knew. Never seen magic like this before...wait what?" Lightning started to run wild from the center of the spiral and than the center exploded loudly as white light went in all directions. The two barely covering their eyes as the shockwave hit the ground and forced them to their knees.
Than it was over as quickly as it began with the clouds clearing as Lina stood up and asked, "What in the Demon Lord's name was that?" She got an answer as something hit her on the head, knocking her unconcious followed by eleven more thuds around Gourry. He saw the first object hit Lina head to head and stood up to look around. He started with Lina as she was on her back with her arms out and her eyes completely blank.
"She'll be fine. Lina's always been hard headed!" Gourry said with a smile before looking at who hit her. He noted she was dressed strangely but her clothing was shredded beyond repair as well as her strange hair style that was somewhat familiar to him, two ponytails to either side of the head. He was about to survey the others when a groan from Lina as she slowly sat up.
"What in Cepheed's name..." She said and than looked around and noted the people. "Where did they come from?" She asked Gourry as he nodded and replied, "They all fell out of the sky with that blonde one there hitting your head with her own. They all seem to be in the same state with possible injuries."
"I could of guess genius." She counted them all and came to twelve in total counting the guy and two cats with the strange crescent moon mark on their heads. Lina shook her head and nodded, "Find someone with a wagon Gourry. We need to get them to Saillune now. I'll do what I can for them now."
She started with the blonde one with the odango and smirked as the hair style was like what Gourry had when she got to dress him as a girl twice. Her hand glowing as she used a Recovery spell to do what she could for them as Gourry ran off to hopefully get a wagon and not forget what he was supposed to do.
Appearing overhead was a man floating in mid air far out of sight, not that would affect his ability to see the situation. His purple hair cut short in a pageboy fashion favored by clerics and squires while he black and yellow vestments blew in the breeze. Held in the crook of his elbow and braced with his hand was a staff with a red gem in the top. He had felt the disturbance and come to check it out, finding this and those two. His two eyes closed as he smirked and said, "This may get interesting it seems."
The first thing she noticed was the smell of smoke, trying to figure out what it was from. Not coming up with anything, Usagi slowly opened her eyes but closed them as the torch light was blinding. Wait? Torches? She slowly opened her eyes, getting her hand out from under a comfortable blanket and used it to shield them as she adjusted. What had happened was something she wondered than the battle and it's final moments came back. That horrendous rending in the air than the bright light before something just seemed to swallow her up into darkness. Than that darkness went beyond anything you could call darkness. A presence touched her, amused but respectful as well. That was where her recollections stopped and she groaned a bit from aching muscles.
Slowly she rose up and saw an older man coming forth. "Your awake miss. I will send for them." He left, leaving her to look around and noting her friends and Mamoru-sama were there. She than looked around and took note of the two smaller crates where Luna and Artemis slept under blankets as well. At least they were all taken care of and seemed alright. Than she took in her surroundings and took note it looked like something out of a Medival setting with firelit torches on the wall and stone walls with glass windows done in that european style.
Usagi started to hear sounds from around her as Minako slowly rose up, shielding her eyes and shaking her head and saying, "Did someone get the name of that Youma that hit me?" She looked to Usagi and smiled, giving a tired V for Victory. The others were in similar states as Luna and Artemis poked their heads up.
Usagi looked than to a waking Setsuna and asked, "You up to telling us what happened or would you like to get yourself together more?" Setsuna just shook her head and asked for silence.
"What happened hit me harder than the rest of you due to my connection to Spacetime. I've got a splitting headache right now so need a little time." She whispered in response with Usagi understanding.
Ami was looking around and saying, "Judging by our surroundings. This looks like it could of come out of the 13th to 15th Century as far as the architecture and stonework are concerned. Anyone have an idea where or when we are?" Taking the obvious route of leaving that question wide open due to their previous adventures involving spacetime.
"Maybe we landed in a Rennesiance Festival like that one in...I think it's Minnesota that has the largest one or something?" Minako asked with a smile as the others groaned. The door opened again to admit the man Usagi saw before as well as five others. The first she noted was Lina with her red hair and being slightly taller than Hotaru but not by much dressed in a rather garish color setup with the yellow shirt and red pants. One of the other five was a girl with purple black hair the same height as Hotaru but with a much bigger chest than the redhead dressed in white with a cloak hanging and some blue gems on bands around her neck, waist, and wrists. The third was a female with bluish-purple hair and taller than the other two dressed in purples and blues with a cloak on her shoulders. She looked kind hearted and was taking each of them in the same way Ami's mother would.
That brought Usagi's eyes to the other two. The first was Gourry and his blonde hair and armor as well as the sword strapped to his back. The final member was a man dressed in tanish clothing with a hood up and mask over the bottom of his face but even she noted the bluish tint to his skin and what looked like stone under his eyes.
"So, are you all okay?" The taller girl asked as she went to each one of them, giving them a look over of a trained healer or something. She nodded as the redhead stepped forward. "So, feel like eatting and talking about what happened to you all cause I'm famished!" The handsome blonde and tall man stepped forward. "So am I!"
"Miss Lina! That's rude! We should at least know their names and they ours! As Champions of Justice, it's the polite thing to do" The smaller girl replied with reproach to this Lina. Usagi was slightly perplexed as Lina sighed with her head in her palm, "I guess your right. Go ahead than..."
The girl smiled from ear to ear as she nodded and said, "I am Amelia wil Tesla Saillune, Princess of Saillune and one of those who helped healed you. The other is right here!" She gestured to the tallest girl of the three and she bowed as she introduced herself. "I am Sylphiel nes Lahda. Priestess here."
She than looked to the two men as the blonde smiled and nodded before speaking, "I'm Gourry Gabriev, a traveling Swordsman a Guardian for her." Pointing to the redheaded Lina who rolled her eyes.
The other guy nodded and said, "I'm Zelgaddis Greywords." it came out simply and without any fanfare.
The one named Lina smiled and said, "That just leaves me huh? Well than." She got up and held up her right hand while touching the left to her chest. "I am the beautiful, talented, and powerful Sorcery Genius Lina Inverse!" Lina than made a grand gesture with the left hand that had been to her chest and said, "Light which burns beyond crimson flame, let thy power gather in my hand! LIGHTING!" An orb of bright light formed in it and floated into the air.
"So who are you all?" Lina asked and than looked at them as they were all showing questioning looks before Minako spoke. "Full of herself isn't she?" Were the words that nearly got her killed as Lina was about to charge across the room if it wasn't for her friends holding her back with affirmations that they might not know what they are doing, refering to Usagi and her friends.
Usagi giggled though and stood up, noting she was in a light dress that went down to her ankles slowly as she walked over to Lina. "I am Usagi Tsukino but you can just call me Bunny as my name means Rabbit in the Moon so I like to go by Bunny with new friends." She gave Lina a hug that had the other gal perplexed but Lina shrugged it off.
"Okay, guess I won't have to punish your friend for what she said. Want to introduce the rest?" Lina asked Usagi as the blonde girl smiled. "Sure." She turned and nodded, situation diffused as Minako started up.
"Minako Aino." The other introductions went clockwise from Minako around the room. "Makoto Kino." "Rei Hino." "Ami Mizuno." "Mamoru Chiba." "Haruka Tenoh." "Michiru Keioh." "Setsuna Meioh." "Hotaru Tomoe."
Lina nodded and said to Usagi, "What about the cats? They got names?" Luna would of smiled as she said, "We can introduce ourselves thank you very much." The group of five's jaws dropped as Lina said, "Talking cats? Now I've seen everything and I'm used to Beastmen and Fishpeople!"
Gourry just looked at the two cats blankly as Luna cleared her throat. "I am Luna and this is Artemis." The white cat smiled and waved a paw. "Hey. Glad to meet you."
Lina than went back to the original question she opened with. "Okay...so who's hungry and want to fill me in one what happened to all of you? Your clothing was shredded and we can't replace it but maybe we can take you out to shop. Prince Phil will foot the bill."
Amelia frowned and said, "Me and my daddy are not your personal bank." The tone slightly accusing and sour.
It was a late time to eat normally but considering the Senshi were out for most of the day in this world, they took to the food as famished as they were. The only things that had shocked them was first meeting Prince Phil, who more resembled an oversized dwarf with a beard and mustache and not the handsome man on the white horse from fairy tales. Amelia seemed to worship him though. The other thing was only saved from causing the rest of the Senshi's jaws to drop was the fact that they been around Usagi so long and used to her dietary habits.
As it was, a miniature food fight erupted between Usagi, Lina, and Gourry for the food nearest them. Gourry seemed to be losing the battle to the two young women while they themselves were trying to keep clear of each other after the first time Usagi wailed. Never had anyone seen Lina react in physical pain before to a sound like that.
Luna meanwhile took the time to fill them all in on the Senshi's story from the Moon Kingdom onward to the present with the attack they faced. Lina stopped stuffing her face with pork loin to wipe her face and ask, "What did this one and the others she led look like again? Get a name maybe?" She looked at Luna as the cat shook her head. "No name and this monster-woman was mishapen with her skin the color of ruby and pure black eyes that looked nothing human. The others looked like devils with skull heads, wings, and no eyes at all."
"And you said she teleported around randomly during the battle Usagi?" Looking to Usagi as she stopped and nodded without stopping to chew her food. Lina was deep in thought as she than looked to Setsuna. "And you said she than turned them all into black energy that she tried to shoot at you all but Usagi here blocked with her own massive energy blast."
"Yes and now I can answer Usagi's question as well now that I am adjusted and no longer feel like the Big Bang is in my head." She sat back and looked to Usagi and Lina. "As Luna explained, my powers guard over Space and Time which allows me to feel things in it's flow. What happened when the two attacks collided was they ripped the dimensional fabric and allowed our worlds to touch, creating a wormhole and sucking us into this world."
Ami nodded in understanding and than asked, "I take it magic gets around the limitations String Theory and M-theory place on Inter-Universe contact?"
Setsuna nodded and replied, "Yes it does but your need a lot of energy to do so. Gravity does it because Gravitons are not bound to the Dimensional Plane. Neither are Tacyhons for that matter." The other Senshi gave a shake of their heads, not surprised Ami would know something and understand it a bit more than them. Lina herself had picked Ami out as someone who liked books.
"Well, let's hope I'm not right as it seems you contacted the Astral Plane as what you were fighting sound a lot like Mazoku. The evil beings of our world for the most part. It would explain how you maybe got here but me and Setsuna will need to discuss it some more before we come to any conclusions...or Xellos shows up. Either one happening is bad news."
Rei frowned and nodded. "Yeah. Me, Minako, Setsuna, Usagi, and Hotaru were the only ones able to affect them. Any idea on why if they are these Mazoku?" She asked, wishing she could use her fire abilities to track this foe.
"Well, as far as I know of our magic here...Mazoku are anything from resistant to immune to elemental type attacks drawing on Fire, Earth, Wind, Water. You can use them to knock them around though but to really hurt or kill them...you need Astral attack spells like the Elmekia Lance or Flare or the Ra Tilt. Than there is Black Magic like Zellas Byrd or the Dragon Slave."
"Wasn't there also that attack Filia used on occasion? That Holy Spell?" Amelia asked Lina as the sorceress nodded. "Yes, I think it was Chaotic Disintergrate. So Holy Magic attacks works as well."
This started to really go over the Senshi's heads as Ami said. "I think I will need to read your books so I can understand all that."
Usagi yawned and shook her head and said, "Tomorrow Ami. After this day, I want to sleep. Than I want some decent clothing while we are here." There was nods of affirmation from the other Senshi as Amelia smiled and replied, "Heroes of Justice that you are, I got you the best visitor suites we have in the palace!"
Usagi leaned over to Lina and asked, "Is she really this into Heroes and Champions of Justice as much as she seems." Lina just nodded yes and said, "It makes her great for fighting Mazoku as they feed on negative emotions and feelings. But otherwise, her love of long speeches before a fight...well, let's just say we could do without it." Usagi frowned at the last bit as she loved givign speeches before taking on the enemy, usually about love and justice and punishing in the name of the moon. She shrugged and got up to follow a Palace maid to her quarters. Figuring this group out could wait.
Lina was standing on the balcony of her room long after the others went to sleep as she smiled. It was a quiet and peaceful night in Saillune as she just leaned over with the elbows on it and staring out. She than finally asked, "So...how long you going to hang there?" She looked to her left as the purple-haired man appeared out of thin air and landed on his feet with only the staff tapping the stone masonry.
"How did you guess I was near Miss Lina?" He asked her with his eyes closed and that smile on his face that made her want to smack him as it hid things in the past and was hiding them now.
"Considering they went through the Astral like they did and what they described, I figured you would be around Xellos. So want to tell me what's going on?" Lina turned and waited for the reply.
"That, I am afraid is..." Xellos started as Lina cut him off and completed it for him, "...That is a secret." Xellos nodded and just walked over to lean against the doorway of the balcony.
"For the most part yes. I was nearby when I felt the disturbance in the Astral and that was some disturbance to do what it did. As to your next question, my master told me to keep my ears on rogue Mazoku gathering. If what they say is true, than they seem to be organizing under someone called the Dark Queen."
"I take it you will have to inform Lord Beastmaster about this?" Lina asked next while walking to the other doorway.
"Correct. She will wish to know these developments as her warning to remain vigilant for rogue Mazoku that served Chaos Dragon Gaav and Hellmaster Phibbirizzo might be gathering under a new leader but there is no Mazoku known as the Dark Queen." Xellos said and with a bow, he vanished into thin air.
"Great...I think I declare a vacation and go back home after this. " Lina uttered heading to her bed.
The strange woman the senshi had been fighting was kneeling before a dark throne as she shuddered with the other Mazoku who joined her waiting to see her punishment. "You failed to not only kill her but gain the crystal as well Leryza. How do you explain this?"
The strange woman shuddred as she prostrated herself before the throne. "I underestimated her strength your highness. I did not foresee the caliber of power she could use. I should of taken your warnings about her will to do what needs to be done to save others more seriously rather than dismissing her like I would a Human spellcaster of this world."
The voice chuckled as Leryza crawled backwards in fear. "And you see your folly in that just like I did all those years ago when I challenged her. You've realized the danger she poses. That is good and even better, you get a second chance to do what I assigned you as she is now here in this world. I believe it's the city of Saillune is what you call it?"
Leryza would of smiled if she had a mouth and she spoke. "Yes my Dark Queen. I will do what you command." The evil tone in the Mazoku's voice chilling to anyone who would of heard if they were human.
Robin Starwing: There we go, first chapter up. Hope you all like it whether you got me on Story or Author Alert or are looking for something new.
