Title: Heart's Songs - Opening Scene

Author: Jade Hunter

Disclaimer: None of the characters or songs I use in this series belongs to me. The translations of the Sailor Moon manga songs are not mine, I just got them off a site.

A.N: This is a short series of songfics that I use to describe the infamous Senshi/General romance. This series has both an opening scene and a closing scene.

##############################################################

The screen shows a shot of the Earth and the Moon, both shining with an inner light. The camera zooms in, and we see a bright flash of light head from the Earth to the Moon. The camera pans in and angles so that we are in front of the light, and can see where the light is going to go. After a few moments of seeing wild life, we see the large and silvery structure of the Moon Kingdom's Palace.

Shaded by the sunlight

In my heart you are here

Even without saying you love me

You are here in my heart

Fade in to a bright room, where many people are milling about excitedly. Most are scientists, but six forms stand out. Queen Serenity and Princess Serenity are there, facing a large platform, identically polite smiles pasted on their faces, and the Princess squirms a bit, unable to control her emotions as well as her mother. The Inner Senshi are also present, but they look a bit uncomfortable and wary of the situation. A bright light, the aforementioned bright light, shines from the platform, and the Inners visibly stiffen as the light fades and we manage to make out five silhouettes.

Say, thanks for your bravery

Look, the newly born powers

Covering everything, shining brightly

Flash to a large hallway, where we see the Queen and her large entourage walk away from Princess Serenity and her Senshi, and Prince Endymion and his Generals. The two groups of four guardians exchange hesitant glances as they shift from foot to foot, unsure of what to do next. The Princess effectively solves that problem by shrugging and latching onto Prince Endymion's arm, dragging him away for a few hours of privacy.

Even more than the spacious sky and the sea

My dreams have no limits

I have realized that because I am in love

Venus blinks at her charge, and then takes the hint. She smiles carefreely, and looks up at the tall, silver-haired General next to her. Kunzite's stern face softens considerably, and he proffers his elbow, which she takes. They obviously know each other from the way they are so comfortable together as they walk off, a striking sight.

In the stream of destiny

I want to swim together with you

Whatever happens to us

I'll be sure not to give up

The camera pans away from the two leaders, and zooms in to show a tall, blonde-haired General's slightly surprised face. Jadeite turns to Mars, and says something to her, to which she smiles slightly, and nods, much to his delight. The two then proceed to leave the rest of their comrades behind as they get absorbed in their conversation.

Say, I'm glad we met each other

That warm atmosphere around us

The days of being hurt are melting away

The screen then shows a speculative look in Jupiter's eyes as she turns to the brown-haired General Nephrite, asking him something. The question obviously surprises him, and then he smiles slightly, agreeing from the way Jupiter's smile turns triumphant. They too leave to go off on their own.

I love you so much that I could die

Drifting in the wind the seed

Will sprout like your smiling face

The hallway is now empty, except for the strawberry blonde-haired General and Mercury. The screen zooms in as she bites her lip, an inner struggle evident on her eyes. She seems to come to a decision, and she turns on her heel to face Zoicite with a small smile.

Where there is no sound in the corners of space

Everybody is alone

When at least our feelings of love meet

I can go on to tomorrow

The screen is overtaken by a flash of silver, and then splits into four different scenes. The top-left one shows Venus and Kunzite, laughing and talking as they walk aimlessly through the halls of the Moon Palace. The top-right shows Mars and Jadeite as they have an animated discussion in what looks to be a lounge, or a den. The bottom-left shows Jupiter and Nephrite as they circle each other, exchanging blows every now and then. The bottom-right screen shows Mercury and Zoicite, sitting across from each other in the library, reading books and sneaking glances at each other.

The throbbing building up warmly

Eternally who ever's heart it is in

It will resound loudly, the magical melody

Fade in to Princess Serenity, walking amidst some flowers the gardens with Prince Endymion, both of them with knowing smiles on their faces. The scene then shifts, showing Queen Serenity as she sits on her throne regally. Her eyes close as she smiles, and the camera zooms in, filling the screen with the silver strands of the Queen's hair.

Even more than the blue sky and the sea

I will chase after my dreams with love

Your deep eyes told me to do that

The camera pans down, away from the silver, and the screen shows a large lake, sparkling from the light of the moon. On this serene scene, as if a hand is actually writing, a message appears in loopy, gold handwriting:

Heart's Songs *Opening Scene* "Eternal Melody"

Tiny block letters form at the corner of the large message:

Hello! Welcome! I hope you enjoy this!
