Tomoe Hotaru, Firefly of the Earth
By Silver Sailor Ganymede
Tomoe Hotaru, firefly of the earth: her name seems, at first, not to fit her at all, and yet when you really look at her, when you actually know her, you find that her name is perfect for her.
Tomoe Hotaru, firefly of the earth: she seems, at first, little more than a teenaged girl with a dark, cold and gothic demeanour; just your average teenage 'freak', with her unusual looks and unnatural powers. That is how most people see her, but I know better.
Tomoe Hotaru, firefly of the earth: I know her, perhaps better than anyone else. I too understand what it means to be alone. Yes, I know exactly what it means to be alone: not in the way that Setsuna, Minako, Rei, Ami or any of the others would know, but I do know. My parents are dead; they died in a plane crash when I was six years old. Her parents are dead; her mother died when she was eight, her father when she was twelve. We are both alone; we have no family other than our fellow senshi, our greatest friends whom we would give our lives for.
Tomoe Hotaru, firefly of the earth: she is a dark-seeming child, and yet she is just like a firefly; even in the darkest of times, she will provide a light. A light and hope that, even when Silence reigns, life will appear soon after.
Tomoe Hotaru, firefly of the earth: she is my friend, my companion, my comrade. She is the only person who truly knows what I have been through, and I am the only one who can even begin to understand what she suffered. She is my light in even the darkest, most hopeless of times: my light, my hope, my unlikely lover. Yes, she is my love, and she is my light even when all seems lost: she may seem no more than a dark brooding girl with an introverted personality, but in reality she is so much more than that.
She is Tomoe Hotaru, my beautiful little firefly.
