I LOVE your Moon Cat series! I can't wait to read the next chapter! :D

Nice. Really nice. I just read the entire "Mooncat" series in about three days (the only reason it took me this long is because of work), and i just love it.
I must comment that last AN, though. It is BECAUSE of this last story that i even started the series. I'm pretty big on BSSM/Ranma crossovers, which is how i heard of this story. When i saw it was a sequel, i went through your profile to get back to the beginning.
Anyway, my point is, the "less of the crossover elements" comment i disagree. Not only do you manage to write wellfunctioning crossovers, you don't lose sight of the basis of your story. You have your set of heroes, which you probably plan to expend, and you treat them equally. Well, Luna, Artemis and Hibuki are the prime characters, but otherwise you know what i mean. You don't pull a Naoko.
By "pull a Naoko" i mean, you don't create many characters just to start ignoring them when someone new appears. I mean, in the show, Naru quickly got pushed backstage... only coming forward some with her Nephrite adventure, and she completely disappeared around S or SS. The second Chibi-Usa appeared, the Inners started having less of a role, then once the Outers started popping out the woodwork, it happened again. Then in SS, the Outers get nearly forgotten, in favor of ChibiUsa and Helios. And let's not forget the complete disappearance (both in the show and in Usagi's mind) of Mamoru, from the very first episode of "Stars" and the Starlights completely eclipsing anyone other than Usagi.
In other words, i'm confident no matter how many characters you add to the team, you won't forget anyone else. And you seem to know how to make the interaction between several verses work.
And as far as i'm concerned? That's all i ask. That any crossover is made believable.

Nice to see you continuing this after all this time.

Cool six chapters.

Heh, Artemis proves he *has* a mind, and a rather sharp one, too. Nice. The former cheese-holes seem plugged or at least somewhat paved over for now. Enough to let him show some competency.
And Pluto needs to *really* LISTEN. Usually she appears to ignore most outside arguments beyond her sharp, but narrow focus... and in many other stories has to suffer from it - from embarassment and humiliation to much more serious consequences. Watch more Doctor Who, girl (especially the last David Tennant episodes), and *learn from them*. ;) (ymmv)
Something more regarding the crossovers: Guest appearances and subplots are generally okay, but it just doesn't feel right when the guest characters dominate the story (chaotic comedy of course excepted, but here they just shouldn't).
Your Mooncats stories work so well because they focus on these usually underrepresented characters, who in canon are just supporting cast. And that's the point: Focus.
*Luna and Artemis* are the new focus of the stories, with the Sailor Senshi forming the framework and backdrop (themselves *complemented and bolstered* by the OC's, not pushed aside). Not the Ranma crew or the Love Hina cast.
It's fun to see familiar characters, I don't deny that, but in this setting I prefer to read a story about *the cats* as main focus, not about Artemis and/or Luna getting steamrolled by, say, Ranma's problems and plot delegating *them* to guest stars within what is supposed to be their own story. Let these *add* to the moon cats' story, not supplant them.
Still, good work and keep at it, please. d-b
You had only one or two (imho) somewhat complaint-worthy chapters up to now, anyway. ;)

glad to see your are back with more stories about our favourite moon cats.
i agree that too much crossover is too much but a little is fine.
i don't see why they called the cop for the civilian when the civilian is kasumi. it's weird too as in my mind she's an 'untouchable' character.
i guess we're going to see more moon cats soon?
i don't know how i felt about them after reading the little you gave us about saturn's history.
i love your luna. that said i hope she won't finish completely gun-ho.

SPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAACE CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT S!
| Eisenstein chapter 5 . 3/1/2013
Oh yes, please return to this. I very much enjoyed the previous parts and would like to read more. Still, I have to agree with a previous reviewer, cut back a bit on the crossovers in here. They are fun, but distract too much from the main plot, I think.

It's been over a year since you updated- this a tragedy. You should remember your sacred promise to us fanfiction junkies and update soon. You should have written enough material by now to finish this story and the next one as well.
As to the story- less crossover would make it better. I don't really understand Ranma, crossover or not. Focus more on Artemis and Luna.

Wait... OOH! I just realized a continuity error unless you intend to turn in into a joke about likeness infringement. Ranma is in this as a crossover guest appearance but in the first Moon cats story Luna and Artemis are already familiar with who these people are because of the senshi reading ranma manga and using this as reference for Luna to turn into Shampoo's cat form with the old disguise pen.

I would like to see more updates to this.
If you could focus on one cat or the other this would
be a better story.
| Madfish chapter 4 . 8/2/2008
It lives! Now to go back and read from the start : )
| Tovath chapter 4 . 7/16/2008
Glad you updated. I hope it won't take so long next time because I want to find out what happens next.
