Disclaimer: yawn You know the drill by now, refer to previous chapters if you're uncertain.

Author's Note: Sorry for the relatively long time between chapters. I just finished chapter 11, and that was what I was waiting on before posting chapter 10. Well I did some planning, if everything goes well I'll have this story done before the end of the summer...if I can stick with the writing. As it currently looks with my plan I'm looking at 18 chapters (including those finished) and an epilogue. I actually have the epilogue and the end already planned. So unless this story throws me another curve ball, I'm past the half-way point.

Another thing, if you want to ask me questions about anything in the story, go ahead. I may or may not answer them, but if you feel the need, go ahead. I love hearing the reviews, and as you know, I reply to them.

Other things in the works, I'm actually going to be starting a new story soon, I have two new fics currently on my computer that I'm writing, I just don't know which one to do. Both are Harry Potter/X-Men crossovers, one I have no idea where it's going that just started flowing from my fingertips today (and nearly prevented me from updating this), the other I have three pages in my notebook devoted to planning (it'll actually be a series). Depending if I can figure out where I truly want to start with the second or if I finally figure out where the first is going, I'll be posting one of them soon. So, if you like those types of stories, keep checking for them.

Thanks to everyone who reviews or adds this to alerts/favorites/C2s (you don't have to ask, but I would like to know).

From Destiny to Fate
Chapter 10: Burning Rage

"Jadeite knows my identity," Usagi said, "as well as the identities of Mercury and Mars."

"Are you sure he's the same Jadeite?" Michiru asked.

"Yes, he's changed clothes and cleaned up, but he's the same."

"What can we do?" Haruka asked.

"Be on our guard at all times, this means we need to take guard shifts in the night," she said.

"And we should warn the others," Michiru said

"I'll call Rei," Usagi said going to the phone.

Hikawa Shrine—Juuban District, Tokyo, Japan

"Hello, Hikawa Shrine, Hino Rei speaking," she said.

"Rei, has there been any attacks in Juuban recently?"

"No, why?"

"Maybe it's just here than," she said. She paused before continuing, "Have you been sensing anything, having weird dreams, anything?"

"No, again, why?"

"You need to be on your guard, everyone needs to be on their guard," she said. "Jadeite is back."

"No," Rei said.

"Yes, I saw him with my own eyes," Usagi said.

"I'll do a fire-reading and call back after I warn everyone to be on their guard," she said.

"Thank you," Usagi said.

Dark Kingdom—Secret Location

"You let her see you," the male voice said.

"My apologies, my lord," Jadeite said to the shadowed figure on the throne. He had been ever so surprised when he had been awoken from his eternal sleep many years earlier. He had been even more surprised that Beryl was gone and Sailor Moon had killed her. He had given all the information he had to the one who had awakened him, including the identities of Sailors Moon, Mars, and Mercury. His savior had been very pleased with that information and set him the task of finding the other senshi's identities.

Apparently, there were now a lot more senshi than when he had been placed in eternal sleep. Jupiter and Venus had appeared and then Sailor Moon turned out to be the princess. Then he had heard rumor of older senshi, but no one had seen them. It was his job to find their identities, but he was supposed to remain hidden.

"Do you have a new plan for destroying Endymoin or finding the senshi?"

"Yes, my lord," Jadeite said. "My youma is already looking for Chiba Mamoru, whom I've confirmed is Tuxedo Kamen." Jadeite paused for a moment, debating whether or not to say something and decided for it, "My lord, may I ask why we are not attacking the much weaker senshi in Tokyo? The fire-wielder, Mars, can see into the future, and I have no doubt she's already working on finding out our plans."

"Hm...Change your plans, I want Hino Rei dead," the male said.

"Yes, my lord," Jadeite said with a bow. "I have just the youma to help me."

Hikawa Shrine—Juuban Section of Tokyo, Japan

"Rin, pyou, tou, sha, kai, jin, retsu, sai, zen, ha!" Rei chanted where she sat before the great fire. An image of Jadeite was in her head. She didn't know what she was going to see, but the great fire going out was not a good thing. She stood fast looking at the fire in horror, putting her fist to her mouth she bit on her thumb. This was bad.

"Hello, you've reached the answering machine for Chiba Mamoru, Ten'oh Haruka, Kaioh Michiru, and Tsukino Usagi, we cannot come to the phone right now so please leave a message at the beep," Usagi's voice said.


"Usagi, its Rei. Call me when you get this message," Rei's voice rang out through the empty house. "I hope nothing's happened, but I have a bad feeling. The fire went out when I asked about Jadeite. I hope to talk to you la—" Rei's voice was suddenly cut off by the evil laugh of Jadeite.

"Hino Rei, prepare to die!" The speakers picked up a clatter and continued to record the sounds of the fight at the Hikawa Shrine.

Mall—Sanq Kingdom

"Should we even be here with the danger that we're all in?" Michiru asked.

"Usagi told us to have some fun while we still had a chance," Haruka said. "And I want to take you out on a date."
Michiru blushed. While the two were a couple, they never used words like date or anything. "Well, there is a movie I want to see at the Cineplex."

"Okay, and afterwards we could go to that nice Italian restaurant," Haruka replied.

Michiru smiled up at her girlfriend, "I'm so lucky to have you, Haruka."

Hikawa Shrine—Juuban Section of Tokyo, Japan

"Mars Crystal Power! Make Up!" Rei shouted, easily completing her transformation into Sailor Mars. She was outside in the middle of the busy shrine, everyone saw her transform.

"Youma Akawaturubo, kill Sailor Mars!" (1)

"AKAWATURUBO!" the youma shouted coming out of the nearby pond in a waterspout. She looked like a giant humanized catfish. Her body was slim and covered in orange and white scales. She also had huge whiskers that made her look like she had a diabolical mustache. Her hair looked like fins, as did her arms. Her legs were shaped like a fish's tail.

"MARS FLAME SNIPER!" Rei shouted drawing her Mars Arrow back.

The youma just laughed, creating a wall of water around itself. Rei was shocked and saw something she hadn't expected. She had a flashback to her own death in the Silver Millennium.

Mall—Sanq Kingdom

Haruka and Michiru exited the theater after the movie. "That was so amazing, it had good music, auto racing, and romance without being geared towards men."

"I liked it, too," Michiru said to her girlfriend who was acting like their younger friend who was more likely to gush.

Haruka cleared her throat and blushed, "I'm sorry."

"Don't be, I'm glad you enjoyed it," Michiru said.

"Do you want to eat now?"

"Yes, I'm hungry," she said.

Hikawa Shrine—Juuban Section of Tokyo, Japan

"NOT THIS TIME!" She shouted feeling the power from the flame that had suddenly surrounded her. "MARS FINAL POWER! MAKE UP!"

The change was subtle, her skirt was a darker red and both bows were purple. She was also missing her tiara, the symbol of Mars glowed brightly on her forehead. "RAGING INFERNO!" she shouted. Fire sprang up around her and the smell of burning wood permeated the air. As gentle as possible she blew a thin stream of air at the youma and Jedeite; the latter just barely dodged the flames while the former attempted her water trick again. The flames seemed to just fuel the flames as they turned the water quickly to steam and enveloped the youma turning it into charbroiled fish.

"DAMN!" Jedeite said and teleported away, there was no way he was going to go up against a supercharged Sailor Mars.

A cheer erupted from the far end of the shrine and Sailor Mars turned to see all the people who had seen her transformation and the battle with the youma. "REI! REI! REI!" they chanted. Her secret identity was no longer a secret, and she knew it would be on the evening news as she saw a pair of tourist with a video camera had filmed the whole thing.

Mall—Sanq Kingdom

"I'm surprised we managed to get to the end of our date without being called away on senshi business," Haruka said.

"The sea was stormy, though, but far away," Michiru said.

"Something happened in Tokyo?"

"Most likely," she replied. "However, Sailor Pluto did not come and get us so it was nothing serious."

"Or maybe she just to Sailor Moon to finish it off," Haruka said.

The two got into Haruka's car and drove home. Opening the door they saw the message light blinking on the answering machine.

"Oh, that has to be Rei's reply," Michiru said going over and pressing play.

Gundam Boy's House—Sanq Kingdom

"Breaking News now from Tokyo," the news anchor said, suddenly breaking into the movie that Usagi had been watching with Duo.

The other four gundam pilots entered the living room at the announcement.

"This video was delivered to the news station just a half hour ago by a pair of tourists at the Hikawa Shrine," Usagi gasped at that. "This video clearly shows a Hino Rei becoming Sailor Mars."

"What is the enemy's purpose? To kill us or expose us?"

"Presumably to kill you," Heero said.

"However," Trowa continued, "the sailor senshi seem to be stronger than the enemy expected."

The phone in Usagi's pocket rang, "Hello?"

"Usagi, Rei—"

"I know, her identity was revealed and recorded. The world now knows that Hino Rei is Sailor Mars and Chiba Mamoru is Tuxedo Mask. I'm going to call her now," Usagi said.

"Okay, be careful, Usagi," Michiru said.

"You too, Michiru," she said and hung up.

Hikawa Shrine—Juuban Section of Tokyo, Japan

It was all she could do to hide in the house and hope they went away, she couldn't go outside without people wanting her to sign autographs or help them with such menial tasks like lighting pilot lights. She tried to tell them that her weakest powered attack would light their entire house on fire, but they still bothered her. Others were trying to get her to reveal the other senshi, which she outright refused to do. She had communicated to them through her communicator to stay away for awhile lest their identity is revealed, too. She also warned Ami to stay with the other senshi as Jadeite was their enemy.

"Hello, you've reached the Hikawa Shrine, we're unable to answer the phone right now, please leave a message at the beep."


"Rei—" Usagi's voice came out of the speakers, but it was picked up by Rei.

"Usagi, sorry I didn't pick up immediately, we're screening our calls," Rei said.

"I understand," Usagi said. "So things are bad there?"

"Yeah, I can't go outside. I've called off school and barricaded myself into my room."

"I know your phone has been busy, I've tried calling multiple times; it has been busy, though."

"I'm sorry," Rei said. "Grandpa's tried telling the reporters and everyone not to call unless its shrine related business as it blocks are phone line for important calls."

"I understand," Usagi said. "The worst of it is that Sailor Pluto tells me we won't be able to erase memories."

"I remember, now," Rei said. "Yuuichirou was heartbroken, but upon realization that I was the reincarnation of a long dead princess, decided I was out of his league. He's now like an older brother, and I think we're both more comfortable. I wonder where Nemesis is, though."

"I'm sure that where ever he is; he has not given up on finding you," Usagi said.

"What do you know that you aren't telling me," Rei said.

"Am I really that transparent?" she said.

"Yes," Rei said.

"Well, what makes you think I'll tell you?"

"You wouldn't withhold information from me in my trial of trial, would you?"

Usagi sighed, "I can't tell you now, but I will soon, just know that he's alive and well, and when I first interacted with him after he ascertained my identity he asked after you, Nina."

Rei smiled, "Tell him I love him and can't wait to see him again for the first time."

"Will do," she said. "Anyways, I better go, I have a trying day at school tomorrow. You see, it's been revealed that I live in the same house as Tuxedo Kamen who happens to be my Physics teacher."

"Oh, was she the princess?"

"Yes, Relena is Serenity."

"Well, even though the enemy is revealing us, at least, we don't have to worry about finding the princess," Rei said.

"Take care and be careful, no sacrifices," Usagi said.

"You too, Usagi," Rei said, hanging up.

Gundam House—Sanq Kingdom

"She says she loves you and can't wait until she sees you again for the first time," Usagi said coming back into the living room.

"How is she holding up," Quatre asked concerned.

"As well as can be expected," she said. "She's called off school and is staying inside, apparently things are more hectic for her as she actually defeated the youma in front of eye witnesses and they filmed it."

"What do you think this means?" Trowa asked, seeing the expression on her face, an expression that said she could see something coming and wasn't sure what to think.

"It may be nothing, but I've been following astronomical charts for a while now. There's a solar eclipse coming in a few months during a full moon; however, what's more amazing is, that during the eclipse every planet in the solar system will be inline and in order from Mercury to Pluto."

"That can't be coincidence," Duo said.

"I don't think it is..."
