Wicked Lovely 17: Yep, in this chapter, in fact.
rainediamond: Hehe, happy late birthday!
Usagi bit her lip as she walked into the Cosmos cabin, knowing she hadn't been anywhere this nice since she was Serenity. The building seemed to be made of white crystal and marble. Looking up at the ceiling, Usagi saw the blue sky, and a gentle wind brushed her face, but magic prevented any animals or rain from getting through.
Along the tops of the walls as a border were angels in the clouds that magically changed to stars and planets at night. The rest of the walls faded downwards into the white crystal and marble the exterior was composed of.
There was only one bed in the cabin, round and covered in white silk, a plush white blanket sitting on the end across the bed. Usagi approached the bed and sat down, a smile on her face. "Thanks, Mom," Usagi said quietly in a half-joking manner. The blonde fell back onto her bed, smiling up at the sky.
"You like your room?" a kind voice asked. Usagi looked up to see Percy, and she nodded. "Sorry we weren't properly introduced before. Percy Jackson, son of Poseidon."
"I'm Usagi Tsukino, daughter of Cosmos," the blonde smiled, shaking Percy's hand.
"Yeah, everyone knows that," Percy laughed. "You're the only child of one of the Forces. That's even more taboo than the Big Three having children."
Usagi's eyebrows furrowed. "What do you mean? Why is it taboo?"
"Well, simple, it's because you'd be so powerful," Percy explained. "It's surprising that you haven't displayed any powers before."
"Like what?" Usagi asked. Sure, she had been a senshi for years, but this demigod stuff was new... well, except for Setsuna, but viewing how the campers saw Chronos, it would be best to avoid the subject.
"I don't know... maybe the ability to heal others, or see auras or something?" Percy offered.
"Oh," Usagi replied. She had both powers, but had always presumed they were Lunarian powers. "Interesting, I've never dealt with either of those."
"Well, you probably will be soon," Percy told her. "So what are you doing in your cabin in the middle of the day?"
"Oh, I just had to get a new shirt. Your cousin did a number on me; she's got great aim," Usagi stated, getting up and going over to what appeared to be a white dresser with cherry blossom branches atop it. She opened a random drawer, revealing a collection of shirts.
"Cousin?" Percy asked, confused for a moment. "Oh! Thalia. Yeah, the kids of the gods don't really consider ourselves to be related to each other, even if we're theoretically cousins. It's this whole weird thing about the gods only passing on their powers, not their DNA."
"Then how come all of the Athena kids aside from Ami-chan have blonde hair and grey eyes?" Usagi asked, pulling a simple, pale blue tank top out of the dresser. Glancing over, she saw a changing screen and hid behind it while Percy tried to come up with an answer to her question.
"Well... they... uh... okay, I don't know," Percy confessed as Usagi walked out from behind the screen wearing the new top.
"At least the whole not-related thing means Mamo-chan and I can keep seeing each other," Usagi smiled. "So is stuff around here all that organized, or do kids just wander around, hanging out?"
"A bit of both," Percy told her. "It's about time for lunch, so everyone will be heading over to the mess hall pretty soon. You can sit with me, Nico and Makoto. We decided on this whole thing a while ago where the kids of the Big Three and the Forces- if there ever were any- would sit together, or else we'd all be stuck sitting by ourselves."
"Thanks," Usagi smiled softly.
With that, the two headed out towards the mess hall, Percy explaining things about the camp a bit more in-depth than Grover had.
"...but now we pretty much just take the quests in whatever form they come," Percy finished, explaining the Big House and the prophecies.
Usagi gasped as a hand roughly grabbed her arm, and she turned to see a girl with red hair and misted-over green eyes. What was scary was when she started speaking.
"The hidden six of the camp, as well as four known,
Must fight to protect the secret throne,
The pariah returns and fights for it all,
Fear the future that will soon fall,
Lost in the truth, lost in the past,
Within the lies, the gods fading fast."
Usagi watched the girl with her eyes wide in fear, and Percy rushed over to catch the redhead as she passed out. "What- what just happened?" Usagi asked in shock.
"Rachel Elizabeth Dare," Percy explained. "She has the Oracle's spirit in her. She told you a prophecy that you have to fulfill."
"Like what you were just talking about?" Usagi asked, unsure.
"Exactly," Percy replied as Rachel came to. Much to Usagi's surprise, the redhead got to her feet, dusted herself off, and walked away.
"Wait, shouldn't she be lying down?" Usagi asked, naturally caring about others.
"Nah, this happens occasionally," Percy explained. "We should probably go tell Chiron and Mr. D about the prophecy. You need to choose your other nine."
A thought occurred to Usagi that night at dinner. "Where are we supposed to go?" she asked Percy, Nico, Thalia and Makoto. Thalia had joined their table that night because Usagi figured it would be best to have Thalia on the quest as well.
"Not sure," Percy replied. "Nothing in the prophecy says anything about where we're supposed to go."
"It talks about a throne, maybe London?" Nico offered.
"Secret throne," Thalia added in. "It obviously means Olympus."
"What about the moon?" Makoto asked, raising an eyebrow to Usagi.
"The moon?" Thalia asked, doubt in her voice. "If you're talking about Artemis, you do know that she hangs out on Olympus, too, right?"
"I think we need to tell them," Makoto told Usagi, resulting in three of the others at the table being very confused.
"It says hidden in the prophecy for a reason, Mako-chan," Usagi reminded her.
"Yeah, well maybe we need to stop hiding," Makoto replied harshly.
"We'll talk about it tonight with the others," Usagi decided. "It's a bit too sensitive a subject to talk about it in a crowded mess hall."
"Fine," Makoto grumbled before getting back to her dinner. "But don't think that delaying it will prevent it."
Usagi sighed and got back to her meal as well, ignoring the confused stares of her fellow demigods.
Later that evening, the senshi, Mamoru, Percy, Nico, Thalia and Annabeth sat in Usagi's room while the senshi and Mamoru debated as to whether or not to tell the others the truth about themselves. It seemed to be Usagi and Mamoru for no and the other four for yes.
"Face it: you're outnumbered!" Rei exclaimed. "We're telling them." She turned to Percy, Nico, Thalia and Annabeth and said, "You ever hear of the senshi and Tuxedo Kamen in Tokyo? Well we're them."
"Pardon her bluntness," Minako said. "But, it is the truth. Mamoru-san is Tuxedo Kamen, Usagi-chan is Sailor Moon, I am Sailor Venus, Rei-chan's Sailor Mars, Mako-chan's Sailor Jupiter, and Ami-chan is Sailor Mercury. Also, we weren't exactly born like you. We were born about a thousand years ago on different planets throughout the solar system. The moon was the head of an alliance between all of the planets, the throne."
"I think we would all know if there was life on other planets," Nico replied doubtfully.
"Well..." Annabeth began, "there is the myth of the Silver Millennium. But everyone on those planets died except for Earth in an attack from the Dark Kingdom."
"Exactly," Usagi replied. "We were all killed and reborn during a fight on the moon. I know it's a lot to take in, but if this is where we're supposed to go-"
"I'm in," Thalia blurted out. "Now how do we get there?"
"Magic, how else?" Mamoru said.
"We should leave tomorrow morning," Usagi decided. "If we leave now, the sun's light won't be reflecting off the moon, and I'm not sure if any of the lights are still working. If we need to stay there overnight, we can sleep in the rooms there. Strangely enough, even though everyone died, most of the palace is still very much in tact."
"Then I guess we're going to the moon," Percy shrugged. "If it'll explain this prophecy, we have to."
"Yeah, but is it just me, or did that prophecy sound kind of scary?" Ami asked. "'The pariah returns'? 'The gods fading fast'? It sounds more like a warning than a prophecy."
"Well, that's pretty much what prophecies are, Ami," Thalia explained. "Warnings, and we have to make sure they wind up with the best outcome possible."
Usagi sighed, not wanting this to go on any longer. "Okay, everyone turn in for the night. We need to leave at dawn for our powers to be strong enough to get this many people to the moon."
While the others dissipated back to their own cabins, Mamoru stayed with Usagi. "Are you okay?" he asked, always able to tell when something was bothering his love.
"That whole 'future falling' line kind of got to me," Usagi whispered. "I couldn't help but worry about Chibi-Usa."
"I understand, Usako," Mamoru replied. "But don't worry; nothing bad's going to happen."
Usagi couldn't help the small laugh that escaped her lips. "Isn't that what you said before we died?" she half-joked.
"I mean it, Usako," Mamoru promised. "Everything will be fine, and Crystal Tokyo and Chibi-Usa will come into existence." With that, he wrapped his future wife up in his arms for a hug.
Say it with me now: awwwww. Even a couple of seconds of UsaMamo fluff is a must-have.
