Sailor Moon Fall of Crystal Tokyo
By Sailor Ganymede
Barren… Desolate… Lifeless: such was the fifth dimension. The fifth dimension, the dimension not of the living or the dead, but of the damned, the cursed, those placed under eternal sleep.
Two figures stood on the peak highest of the nameless mountain range that dominated the eastern horizon of this foreboding plane, staring out with cold, demonic eyes.
The smaller, a woman with short, black hair and piercing violet eyes shivered. Her violet senshi fuku did not offer much warmth in conditions like this and her normally alabaster-white skin was now tinted an icy blue from the cold, biting winds that seemed to suck the life and soul of any mortal who wandered those planes.
But this woman was not a mortal, and nor was her companion. The second of the two was a tall woman with tanned skin, vortex-like, blood-coloured eyes and long hair that was of such a shade that one could say it was green, another could say that it was black, and there would be no argument.
The taller of the two, although she too wore the fuku of a Sailor Senshi, did not seem to feel the icy winds biting at her skin and sapping at her soul. In-fact, she seemed not to have a soul, as her eyes, although wise, seemed at that time to be windows to Hell itself.
She strode down the slope with grace and ease as though she had been to this land of damnation many times before- in-fact she had visited this plane more times than any other. Her companion called for her to wait, and she stopped for a few minutes until the smaller woman caught up with her.
"Pluto, why are we visiting this accursed place?" the smaller of the two spat, wrapping her arms even tighter around herself.
"Simple", the other replied. "This is where our plan starts, this is where we begin to rid this pitiful planet of the baka Queen Serenity and her companions". She stopped, turned to her companion and spat, "and for the thousandth time, Fluorite, I am no longer 'Sailor Pluto', just as you are no longer 'Sailor Saturn'. I am now Lady Garnet".
"I apologise, milady", Fluorite muttered, bowing slightly.
Lady Garnet dismissed it with a wave of her hand and they walked onwards.
After what seemed an age, the two women arrived at a place that was scattered with what appeared to be boulders. A smirk appeared on Lady Garnet's face, but her eyes remained as dead as that land around her.
"What is this place?" Fluorite asked, shivering as though terrified at what she sensed. Lady Garnet looked at her coldly, and Fluorite, if possible, paled even further.
"It is not…"
"It is, Fluorite", Lady Garnet replied, cold as ever. "This is the place of rest… this is where we'll find them".
"Those that the Inner Senshi fought, fool".
"Why them, milady? Why not the Death Busters, the Dead Moon or Galaxia?"
Lady Garnet made a noise not unlike a growl and explained. "Those of the Tau system would no longer be useful to us: they are too weak. Those of the Dead Moon are either dead or healed".
"The Asteroid Senshi", Fluorite hissed.
Lady Garnet nodded and continued. "As for Galaxia, she and all the other senshi were healed. But we needn't fear, Chaos has given its power to another".
"Me", Lady Garnet smirked. "We both hate those miserable Senshi equally, therefore I let it reside within me. Chaos was beaten by the Sailor Senshi, remember? We were still foolish enough to fight with them at the time; now I must get my revenge".
"Revenge for what, milady?"
"For what happened during the Silver Millennia", Lady Garnet said. "For what Queen Serenity made me do".
"You mean…" Fluorite began but she was cut off by a glare from her mistress that said, 'Silence, this subject is not to be spoken of, fool'.
Fluorite flinched as though the glare had harmed her like a physical blow would, and dropped to her knees, her face contorted in pain.
"Fluorite, you truly are weak, are you not?"
"All are weak against your power, milady", another voice proclaimed, and three figures appeared out of the mists.
The one who had spoken had long golden hair and azure eyes. Her fuku was styled in the same way as the others, only it was dark orange.
The second rolled her violet eyes in an expression of disgust. Her raven hair cascaded down to her knees and her fuku was as red as the flame.
The third stepped forward and bowed deeply. Her eyes were sapphire-coloured, as were her short hair and her fuku.
"Topaz, Ruby and Azure reporting for duty, milady", the third- Azure- said, rising from her bow.
"Very good", Lady Garnet said. "You have the plans, Azure?"
"Hai, milady", Azure replied, handing a set of scrolls to Lady Garnet, who looked at them with interest.
If anyone else had been present at that time, they would have been completely mystified as to what the scrolls meant; they were written in a language that no others on the planet known as 'Atlantis', 'Terra' or 'Earth' could read. This language once formed the base if the Galactic Alliance. It was a language known as 'Galacxian'.
"Very good", Lady Garnet smirked. She looked at her four minions and said, "Now, we must release them".
"Who, milady?" Topaz asked.
"The ones we fought when we were on the side of 'good'", Ruby muttered, her eyes moving quickly around the plane. Her eyes settled on one particularly dark stone, and she frowned. "He's in there".
"Who is?" Topaz asked.
Azure's eyes widened and she smirked as she realised what her mistress was about to do. "You're going to free them so they can serve you, aren't you?"
"Very good, Azure", Lady Garnet laughed.
She placed a skeletal hand on one side of the ex-Dark-Kingdom General's Stone/Prison. Her blood-like eyes began to mist over until they were nothing but orbs of purest garnet, and her Plutonian symbol began to glow black. A black aura flared around her and then shot towards the 'Stone' like a jet of demonic fire. It ricochet off of the 'Stone' and hit many of the others within that dead valley.
The dark energy subsided and the 'Stones' began to crack open. The ex-Dark Kingdom General's was the first to crack. He fell to the ground, breathing deeply, shaking and gasping as though he had just been saved from drowning; in fact he had, but it was nightmares and memories, not water, that threatened to drive him insane.
He fixed his eyes on Lady Garnet, Fluorite and Topaz, and finally on Azure and Ruby.
"You" he hissed at Azure and Ruby. "What in all of Hell are you damned Sailor Senshi doing here. And where's that baka leader of yours".
"What, the ex- Sailor Moon?" Ruby laughed. "We no longer serve her, just as you no longer serve Queen Metallia or Queen Beryl".
"What do you mean?" a new voice hissed, and many more figures approached. The one who had spoken had long, white-silver hair; his name was Kunzite.
"I am the one who freed you" Lady Garnet hissed. "You are servants of Lady Garnet now".
Her crimson eyes once again began to glow until they were like orbs of blood. The four generals, along with all others who had been freed, fell to their knees and cried, "We now serve Lady Garnet; she is our Master".
The dark skinned Plutonian's face twisted into a smirk, although her eyes remained as cold as ice.
Her voice was clear as it pierced through the air. "The invasion of Terra will begin".
A cheer moved the normally dead air. The demonic Queen laughed shrilly; what had been thousands of years in the making was soon to be carried out; Neo-Queen Serenity and her faithful Senshi would soon die. After countless centuries, she would finally have her revenge.
