Same Side

Same Side

I do not own SM or RW. This is focused mainly on the outer scouts and the warlords. It's not quite related to my other RW/SM crossovers, unless you want it to be. The Warlords are good in this story. Tulpa is long gone. You can assume this takes place after the warlords save them when the school blew up. Anyway, on to the story!

Loyal Silence-Anubis and Sailor Saturn

Sailor Saturn watched the sun rise as she stood on a hill over looking the city. She sighed and hung her head, I feel so lonely. She thought to herself as she looked at her reflection in her glaive. At least she felt stronger as Sailor Saturn and not as her real self, Hotaru Tomoe. As Hotaru, she felt weak and faint. But she felt some kind of power within her whenever she held her glaive. Perhaps that's why the other outer scouts feared her so. But she wasn't evil, just had different powers.

Anubis was walking dressed in his armor of the ogre minus his helmet up the hill and saw Sailor Saturn looking at the sun. When he saw her standing there, he stopped and stood still. Anubis wasn't sure if she was good or evil. And as he looked at her, he couldn't help himself but see how beautiful she was. He stepped forward and stepped on a fallen twig. It snapped and Sailor Saturn turned around in a defensive stance.

"Who are you?" She demanded.

"Anubis," he answered promptly.

"What do you want?"

Anubis thought for a moment. He wasn't sure what it was that he wanted and then answered, "I don't want to hurt you, if that's what you're implying." He stepped closer to her and she held her glaive out until it nearly touched his throat. He took his own weapon and pushed her away. He walked closer to her and she lowered her head again.

Thinking he was lying and he really was going to hurt her she said, "go ahead and be done with it." She was tired of being left out from the outer scouts. They didn't want to be with her. Rini and the inner scouts were the only one who thought of her as a friend. Didn't the outers realize that they were all on the same side?

"I already said I wasn't going to hurt you," Anubis said. With the flat side of his scythe like weapon, he slid it under her chin and pushed it up, careful enough not to scratch her fair and beautiful skin. He brought his weapon down and smiled at her. "What's your name?"

"Sailor Saturn," she replied. She took a few steps back and bowed her head in greeting. Anubis looked fierce and cruel in his armor but his smile was warm and friendly. She looked back at the sunrise and smiled as the warm sun shined on her face. "I need to go now." She started to walk away and then Anubis took her shoulder.

"Can I see you again?" he asked, "we can meet here."

Sailor Saturn wasn't sure how to reply. She had only met this man and already he wants to see her again. As if they've been on a date or something. She turned back around and nodded, "here at sunset."

"Good," he nodded back and walked away.

Darkest Hour-Kale and Sailor Pluto

Sailor Pluto stood guarding the gate of space of time just like she's has been for centuries. She sighed and lowered her head. This makes me so lonely. She thought to herself. Then she told herself not to think about it, that it was her duty be the guardian of the time gate. She raised her head and saw a figure down the hall. She saw a cape flapping and thought it was Prince Ediymoon. (I have no idea how to spell his name!) "Prince Ediymoon?" She narrowed her eyes to get a better look. It wasn't Prince Ediymoon. The figure wore dark armor and she couldn't see his face. He looked evil and scary.

Kale continued to walk up the hall and he pulled his helmet off. He had no idea how he got here and maybe Sailor Pluto could help.

"Who are you?" Sailor Pluto demanded, marching up to Kale, "how did you get here?"

"Kale," he replied, "and I don't know how I got here."

"No one is aloud here." She tightened her hand around her rod, "Pluto Deadly Scream!"

Kale did not want to fight but he had to defend himself someway. He took his sword out, "Black Lightning Slash!" The two attacks merged into each other and died off. He put his sword back in the sheath. "Listen, I do not wish to fight you. I just want to go back to my home. Where am I anyway?"

"This is the passage way to the gate of Space and Time," she explained.

"Who are you?" he asked.

"I'm the guardian." As she studied his face, she saw that he bore a cross-shaped scar on his left eye.

"I can see that," he said. "But do you have a name?"

"Sailor Pluto."

"Can you take me back to my home?" he asked.

She sighed, "I can try. I don't know where your world is. Follow me." She led him to the gate and held her rod to the doors, focusing on the right world for Kale to enter. The doors open and she stepped aside. "Go on through."

"Do you stay here all the time?" Kale asked before entering.

She nodded.

"Don't you ever get a break?"

"If you stand here talking to me the gate will close," she said, changing the subject.

"Thank you," Kale said and walked through the gate. The doors closed behind him and he was in a new world. Nothing like the Netherworld. It was like the world the Ronin Warriors were in. Only, it seemed a little different.

Pluto leaned her body against the gate, wondering if she should have entered the gate with Kale to make sure he was settled in whatever world he went through. If she had messed up and sent him to a world were there're flesh eating rats or something, it would be her fault.

Peaceful Illusions-Dais and Sailor Uranus

"See you again at practice, Amara," one of the other racers said.

"Yeah," she muttered, walking to her motorcycle.

The racer grinned mischievously and walked away, "or not," he whispered to himself.

Amara fasted her racing helmet and started her motorcycle. She got a feeling somethig was wrong but she ignored it and continued to ride. While she was riding the freeway, she got another feeling again. Like she was being watched. She looked to the trees and saw nothing there. But the eerie feeling never left her.

Dais was watching her from the shadows. He kept following her not because he wanted to attack her or play with her mind but he knew there was something bad about to happen to her so he followed to see if there was some way to prevent it.

Up ahead Amara saw that the bridge was out and the road ended up to a deep chasm. There was no way she could jump that, even though she was a terrific racer. She applied the breaks but they didn't work. She was still headed for the chasm and nothing would stop her.

"Oh no," she whispered as the wheels went off the edge. Her mind went blank. She didn't think to transform or to jump off the bike before she went off the edge. She and the motorcycle continued to fall down the chasm. She closed her eyes, is this it? She asked herself. Waiting to meet the hard ground, she felt something springy and soft underneath her. She opened her eyes and saw her laying in a giant web. Her motorcycle was gone but she was alive. Amara stood up and climbed the chasm. Her hand slipped and she was about to fall again until a stronger arm grabbed her wrist and pulled her the rest of the way. She saw a man with long white wavy hair and an eye patch on his left eye. The uncovered eye was blue (actually what color or his eyes? Or, eye?). He wore a gray kimono.

"Who are you?" she asked, "did you try to kill me?"

"Why would I try to kill you and then save you?" Dais demanded.

She unfastened her helmet and took it off. "Thanks," she said and blushed at the thought of her hero trying to kill her. It had to be someone else that rigged her breaks or maybe she just needed to put her motorcycle in the shop. But her motorcycle was probably in pieces at the bottom of the chasm right now.

"Are you alright?" Dais asked.

She nodded, although she really was shaken up. Someone wanted her dead. But who?

Dais knew that she was lying but didn't say anything. Instead he decided to use his illusions for something beneficial. He changed the highway, the chasm, the city smell and the whole scenery to something beautiful. A lush green meadow surrounded by trees carrying leaves colored red and orange. (Dais' armor is the fall/autumn armor, right? Or is it summer?) There was a soft breeze blowing, taking away the stench of the city. Cherry blossoms were falling all around them. Amara took a few steps around the place and looked down to see that her racing outfit was replaced with a beautiful deep blue gown.

"Are you doing this?" she asked.

Dais nodded, "I can make illusions."

"Seems real enough," Amara commented, "but why?"

"Something is bothering you and this should help you escape from whatever that is," he told her. They stood in silence for a while and then the illusion was over. Amara had to admit that she was actually disappointed. She liked pretending. Dais started to walk away.

"Wait!" Amara cried, "I don't know your name."

"I am Dais," he said over his shoulder and stopped for her to say her name.

"I'm Amara," she said.

Dais smiled and disappeared in the shadows. Amara shuddered. Dais was kind but he still had an eerie countenance around him. It was an interesting, eerie kind of countenance, which was something she liked about him. Not many men she knew would change the scenery around her just to make her feel like she was somewhere else for a moment. Actually, most of the men she knew wouldn't give her the time of day.

Song of Piety-Sekhmet and Sailor Neptune

Sekhmet leaned over the boat to bring in his first catch of fish. (I read on a site that Sekhmet used to be a fisherman. I might be wrong, but he dead get his armor power from water, didn't he?) He wore a hat similar to what the Ancient wore and peasant clothing. This was the life he had before he became the warlord of Venom. And this was the life he loved.

While he put the load of fish in a basket, her heard some music soaring over the water. He didn't know where it was coming from and ignored it, believing it was just his imagination. He smiled, remembering some old fisherman tales of hearing mermaids sing or play harps. I'm here to catch fish, not listen to mermaids sing. He continued to do his duty and set the net over the boat and into the water. The music grew louder, but it wasn't too loud. It sounded like a violin. It was a very peaceful, religious kind of tune. The waters echoed with the song.

"What is that?" he asked aloud. He pulled in the next catch and took hold of the oars. He paddled to the sound. The music grew more definite as he paddled but he still couldn't find the source of the beautiful sound. When he thought he was hearing things again and decided to turn back, he saw a beautiful young woman standing on a rock near the shore. She had aqua colored hair that matched the sea and eyes to match. Sekhmet thought she didn't see him because she continued to play. He sat there and listened to her song.

Michelle didn't know Sekhmet was watching her play. Her eyes closed as she began lose herself in her own song. Suddenly, the tune of the song changed to the way she felt inside. Lonely and heartsick. She wished that there was someone that could listen to her play. Her cousin Amara was busy with her racing and other things. All of the outer scouts were lonely yet busy. A stray tear strained down her fair face and she finished the song.

"That was beautiful," Sekhmet praised.

"Oh," Michelle opened her eyes and stepped back, almost falling off the rock.

"Sorry, I didn't mean to startle you," Sekhmet said.

Michelle sat down on the rock and held her bow and violin in front of her knees. "I'm okay," she said. "I just didn't know anyone was listening. I thought I was alone."

"If you wish to be," Sekhmet said, "I can go."

"No, please stay," Michelle smiled. "It's not often I find fishermen out here, or anyone else for that matter."

Sekhmet paddled closer to the rock and reached out his hand, "I can give you a ride to the shore if you'd like." He smiled, "Did you walk in the water to get here or did you swim?"

Michelle looked at her wet feet, "I walked." She took his hand and he pulled her inside the boat and paddled to the shore. The distance between the rock and shore was about ten feet, but she waded through the shallow side.

"Who are you?" Sekhmet asked as the rowed the boat to the shore.

"Michelle," she answered.

"Sekhmet," he said before she asked. He helped her onto the shore. "I look foreward to hearing you play again."

"I'll be playing the next time you fish here." She walked down the shore.

"See you tomorrow, then," Sekhmet said.

Michelle looked over her, nodded, blushed and smiled. She carried her violin and bow and disapeared around the corner. Sekhmet smiled, knowing he had all the fisherman tales beat.

The creature he found told him her name.

*******************************************

"Hotaru," Rini ran up behind her best friend, "would you like to come with us the carnival?"

"Oh, Rini," Hotaru said, "I'd love to, really, but I can't make it."

"Why, are you sick?" Rini asked.

"No," Hotaru shook her head, "I've, I've met someone. We're going to meet again tonight."

"OHHHH," Rini grinned, "I see. So what's his name?"

"Rini," Hotaru mumbled.

"Okay, I understand."

"Some other time, Rini," Hotaru said and pressed on. When she reached the top of the hill, she changed into Sailor Saturn, unaware that Anubis was there.

"Sailor Saturn," Anubis whispered, walking up.

Hotaru frowned, "you saw me transform, didn't you?"
Anubis nodded, "you have two identities?"

"Yes, I figured since you know me as Sailor Saturn you'd only want me to see me that way."

"Why is that?" Anubis asked.

She shrugged, "I feel stronger this way I guess. I'm weaker in my other form."

"That's nothing to be ashamed of," Anubis said.

"Yes it is," Sailor Saturn argued. "The others don't like me."

"Others?" he raised his eyebrow.

"Yes, there are more sailor scouts." She explained, "there are the inner scouts: Mercury, Moon, Mars, Venus and Jupiter. And the outers: Me, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Moon and the others think of me as a frined but not Uranus, Neptune and Pluto."

"I don't understand," Anubis said, "you're part of their group."

She sighed, "They thought I was evil and I suppose they think I'm not good enough."

"I know how you feel," Anubis remembered when the other three warlords didn't give him the time of day. They didn't think his ideas were good. They wanted him excluded from the group. "But give it some time and maybe they'll come around."

"Thank you," she said, "I think they are starting to get used to me being a sailor too. However, I don't think they trust me fully. I almost destroyed our planet."

"Why would you do something like that?" Anubis asked.

"Because, I have the power to do it. But I didn't mean too. Someone was controlling me."

"I see," Anubis said. "Where are they? Maybe I should talk to them."

"No, don't!" She shouted in a whisper. She saw the surprised look on his face and apologized, "sorry. You really don't have to do that."

Anubis nodded, "I understand." He wondered if the other warlords met any of the other scouts. He decided to go and look for them. "I'm sorry, Saturn, there's someplace I need to be."

"Alright." She smiled and de-transformed.

"I don't think you look weak like that," Anubis said.

Hotaru blushed, "thank you."

"What do people call you when you're not Sailor Saturn?"

"Hotaru Tomoe."

"Hotaru," he smiled, "maybe we'll meet again soon."

Hotaru bowed her head and walked away. Maybe she could meet up with Rini time to see her at the carnival.

********************************

"I'm sorry, Amara," the coach said, "I'm afraid you won't be making it in the competition."

"What?!" Amara cried, "I've been working so hard! You can't just cut me from the team!"

"You don't even have your motorcycle with you."

"Someone messed with it," she said.

"Don't worry, Amara," the teammate that rigged her breaks said, placing his hand on her shoulder, "there's always next year, right?"

Amara snarled and walked away. Not only did someoen want her dead, they also wanted her cut from the team, but who? She banged her hand against a wall. "Damn, Damn, Damn! Not fair, not fair!"

She felt a hand on her back, "Amara?"

Amara opened her eyes and saw that the wall was replaced with a tree and the city was replaced with a vast and beautiful wilderness. She turned around and saw Dais.

"What's the matter?" Dais asked.

"Someone wants me out of the team," she replied.

"Why?"

"'Cause I'm the only girl. They don't like me. I think someone on the team messed with my bike!"

"Someone tried to kill you?" Dais asked.

She nodded, "they'll do anything to keep me from driving this season."

"Really?" he put his hand to his chin. "Excuse me."

"Dais, what are you going to do?" Amara asked but Dais disappeared.

Some of the racers were laughing and talking about messing with Amara's bike and what not. They were having their fun but their fun was about to come to an end. One racer leaned against the fence, it disappeared and he fell into a river.

"Who did that?" he demanded.

The others started laughing.

"Help me up!"

"Hey, did you hear that noise?"

"Oh my god, what's going on with the street lights?"

The climates began changing, to winter, to spring, summer and to fall. Their surroundings were different and they were also brought back to time of the dinosaurs.

"What's going on here!?"

They were then brought to the same place where Amara almost fell to her death. Dais walked up to the bratty youngsters fully dressed in his armor of the tarantula.

"Who is that?"

"he's doing it, he is!"

Dais picked up the one who had rigged Amara's bike and held him over the edge. "Are you scared yet?" Dais taunted.

"Let me go, please!"

"Okay," he began to loosen his fingers around his shirt, "if that's what you really want."

"No, I mean, don't drop me, don't drop me!" he squealed.

"Whoa, let's get out of here!" his friends abandoned him.

"Hey, come back! Don't leave me here with this freak!"

"Freak?" Dais echoed.

"No, I didn't mean it! I'll give you anything you want!"

"Quit the team."

"What? NO way!"

"You're starting to get heavy," Dais said, loosening his fingers more.

"Okay, okay, I'll do it! Just don't hurt me!"

Dais dropped him, the kid screamed and everything turned normal as the kid fell on the street, landing on his rear. "Thanks," the kid mumbled.

Dais squatted down and tilted his head to show the good eye he had, "make sure you do what I say. I'm keeping my EYE on you."

"Y-yes sir!" the kid cried, "I will."

Dais walked away. If he was still the same kind of warlord he was when he was serving Tulpa, he would have ripped that kid apart. He took more delight out of scaring that kid even more than when he was using his illusions on Kento.

***********************

"Hey, Amara, Michelle!" Rini cried, "I'm glad you made it too!"

"Well, after being cut from the TEAM," Amara grumbled, "I figured I could use some cheering up."

"You were cut from the team?" Michelle cried doubtfully.

Amara nodded, "someone on the team messed with my bike. I almost drove into a chasm. My breaks wouldn't work."

"That's awful!" Rini said, "did you transform?"

"I wish I had thought of that, squirt," (what does Amara always call Rini?) Amara said, "but my mind went blank. Then, I landed in some kind of web."

Michelle raised her eyebrow, thinking that her cousin had gone crazy. Reading Michelle's thoughts, Amara said, "I know, Michelle, it's strange. Someone, saved me."

"Who?" Michelle asked.

"His name was Dais. I'm not sure where he was from."

"Was he wearing a strange suit of armor?" Hotaru asked, breaking into the conversation.

"Hotaru, you made it!" Rini yelled, giving her a big hug.

"Suit of armor?" Amara said, "no, he was wearing a kimono. Why?"

"I met someone this morning while I was Sailor Saturn. He was wearing a suit of armor."

"I met someone in a strange armor too," Trista said, walking up, "he came through the gate."

"How did he get into the time gate?" Michelle asked.

Trista shook her head, "he was lost so I tried to find his world and I let him pass."

"Wait, I met someone too," Michelle said, "but he wasn't wearing an armor. He was a fisherman. His eyes reminded me of a snakes'."

"I think these men are all related someway." Trista said, "they must be ancient warriors or something from another world."

"What was the name of the man you met, Trista?" Amara asked.

"Kale," she looked at Hotaru.

"Anubis" She looked at Michelle.

"Sekhmet." She looked at Amara.

"Dais." She looked down and then raised her head. "I hear something."

"I think we need to check this out a little more," Michelle said.

"I wonder what side they are on," Trista said, "I sense that they've had a bad history."

"Me too and Dais saved me. He could make this illusions that seemed like reality."

Rini raised an eyebrow, "um, I'm going to ride the carousel again, see ya!" she looked back ath the four outers, thinking they've all lost their minds.

"Let's go search for them," Hotaru said.

They nodded, walking to a private place and transformed.

***********************************************

The four warlords all met up at the hill Anubis met Sailor Saturn. "How did we all get here?" Kale asked. "Did you all go through that gate of time and space?"

"Gate?" Sekhmet mumbled.

Kale sighed, "I guess I was the only one who did."

Dais folded his arms, "I was in the woods in the netherworld and then I was somehow transferred here. I found a girl driving a motorcycle. She almost fell into a chasm."

"I met someone too," Sekhmet said, "she was playing a violin while I was fishing."

"Did she tell you her name?" Anubis asked.

"It was Michelle."

"She wasn't a sailor scout?" Anubis cocked his head.

"Sailor what?" Sekmet scoffed.

"I met a sailor scout," Kale said, "her name was Sailor Pluto. She was the guardian of the gate."

"The girl I met was Sailor Saturn," Anubis said. "The scouts have different identifies. The girls you have found must have been sailor scouts too, except they were in their human forms."

"Should we look for them?" Dais asked. "Maybe there's a reason why we all found each other."

They all looked at each other, nodded their heads and started to look for the outer sailor scouts, whether they were in the scout form or in their ordinary human form, they were going to find them.

To be continued. How do you like this so far? Do you like how I paired the outers and warlords together? Review, PWEEZE!
