CHAPTER 1-Edited

DISCLAIMER: I do not own Sailor Moon or any of the characters in this chapter

COMPLETE SUMMARY:

Usagi Tsukino is an earthling teen of many faces. To her friends and family, she is a klutzy, below average ditz, to most of the world, she is Sailor Moon, protector of the innocent, and to her fellow senshi, she is Princess Serenity; the Moon Princess of a millennia ago, whom was resurrected with her fellow friends and sailor senshi warriors to protect Earth from the evil being, Chaos.
After many adventures, she has once again been reunited with her soul mate; Prince Endymion, heir to the Golden Kingdom of Earth. Now, Chaos has finally been defeated and it is decided that the senshi should reveal their identities to the world, but it seems our dear Serenity has been keeping secrets from the senshi.
Who is this Serenity, or more accurately, what is Serenity? Doubts and concerns arise amongst her senshi, but they stay true to her guidance. Serenity has a secret that will shock everyone who knows her, as she sheds the fake ditzy personality she has donned. Will she be accepted by the other senshi? Can she stay with Endymion? Above all, what is this secret that Serenity has protected with her life? This is the 'Daughter of Luna'-EDITED VERSION.

LUNA'S POV

Waking up, I stretched luxuriously and groomed myself, running my tongue over my silky midnight fur.

I glanced over at the clock and groaned, the silly girl was going to be late again! The senshi had scheduled a meeting at the shrine today at 10 and Usagi had promised to be on time. The others would skin her if she didn't keep her word!

I didn't understand how the slumbering girl before me could be the same Moon Princess from the Silver Millennium. What happened to her grace and elegance? Princess Serenity had had an outstanding intelligence that had surpassed even Princess Mercury's; Usagi definitely did not fit the bill.

I still had hope however, Usagi had a huge heart and pure intentions; it was one of the reasons I loved her so much. She wasn't stupid, far from it actually; she just needed a little motivation to study harder and apply herself.

Enough reminiscing, I'd better wake up the sleepy head.

I stretched my limbs and shook Usagi gently, "It's time to get up Usagi." Her only reaction was to turn over.

I tried again, jumping onto her body, balancing on her shoulder and poking her face with my paw, "Wake Up!" She moved her arm in a swatting motion, sending me flying across the room.

I landed in a pile of clothes and climbed out unceremoniously, a blush staining my cheeks. I'm glad there was nobody around to see that; the great Luna, advisor to the Lunarian queen taken off guard by a sleeping girl!

Now annoyed, I positioned myself next to her face and shouted into her ear, "SERENITY USAGI TSUKINO! GET UP THIS INSTANT OR FACE THE CONSEQUENCES! THAT IS AN ORDER, YOUNG LADY" Nothing... Well, I warned her!

"All right Usagi, you've forced my, err... paw! I hate to have to do this, but you've given me no choice!" When I realized she wasn't going to answer me, I sighed in defeat.

Looking almost pleadingly at my charge, I extracted my claws, glinting sharply in the morning light and swiped at her leg.

Almost instantly there was a shriek of pain, "AHHHHH!" Usagi shot up with a start, her cerulean eyes flashing angrily, "Luna, what is the meaning of this!" She proceeded with a very convincing cry, "It HURTS! I may never be able to walk again!"

I rolled my eyes at her overly dramatic ways then winced; an angry Usagi in the morning was definitely not a pleasant way to begin your day.

Biting my lip, I answered sheepishly, "Usa, it's not that bad! And I'm sorry, but you wouldn't wake up and if you don't get up now, you'll be late to-"

"Ohmygosh, that's right! Whydidn'tyouwakemeupearlier!" She cried in a single breath. She was up in a flash, throwing on her uniform and tugging her hair into a high ponytail.

Usagi had matured greatly in the past four years; she had mostly kept it from the girls, she'd tried to keep it from me as well, but I had found out and she'd sworn me to secrecy. I wondered sometimes, but knew better than try to understand her. Usagi had also abandoned her trademark 'odango' about two years ago, with the excuse that they were just another similarity between Sailor Moon and Usagi. Now she only wore them for occasions when she presented herself as Princess Serenity, or as Sailor Moon. She'd also excelled in her studies and passed classes that were a year above her grade level with ease. I always insisted that she could do better, perhaps take a few extra classes like Ami-chan did, to try and challenge herself. She'd always brushed it off with a laugh, saying that she was barely passing college as it is. To this day I could not understand why she hid her true potential and pretended she still was the ditz she had previously been.

While I was reminiscing, Usagi had finished getting ready and was just putting her books in her bookbag. She was out the door in a matter of seconds.

I blinked once, then twice, the end of my sentence dying out, "…the senshi meeting…"

Cocking my head, I waited for the daily, 'Bye mom, I'm late for school!' and wasn't disappointed.

Usagi's voice resonated through the house as she shouted, "Bye mom, I'm late for school!" I could almost imagine Ikuko staring at her daughter with a dumbfounded look.

Chuckling to myself, I strained to hear the conversation just as Ikuko was answering. "But Usagi, it's Saturday, you don-" "WHAT!" Usagi interrupted her with an indignant screech and I fought to quiet my giggles, "why that good for nothing cat!" The increasing volume of her words indicated she was coming near and forced my face to look calm and patient while I sat primly on the edge of Usagi's bed.

"Luna! Why did you wake me up if you knew it was Saturday?!" Usagi loomed over me, her eyes wide and angry; shooting indignant bullets at me.

I calmly licked my paw, and continued grooming myself while mussing, if looks could kill…

After my charge had successfully calmed down, I looked at her pointedly, "You have a very important senshi meeting today; tell me you remembered?"

USAGI'S POV

"You have a very important senshi meeting today; tell me you remembered?"

Of course I remembered! I'd promised the girls that I wouldn't "sleep in" this time. The only reason I woke up late was the special training I put myself through late at night. I had to stay fit and strong to protect all the innocent people on this planet.

The Earth will not be harmed; not when it's under my protection! I am no longer the spoiled brat that I was on the Moon Kingdom, the rebirth unlocked my true self, I just can't wait to get my full powers when I am crowned as Neo Queen Serenity.

I couldn't let the senshi know though, that would put them in more danger than they already were. Not even Setsuna knew, I'd blocked her sight-seeing with a simple spell to make sure she wouldn't get any suspicions. So I lied; even though it hurt to lie to them, I would do anything to keep them safe.

"That's today already!" I exclaimed in mock surprise, scratching my head and hoping she would fall for it.

She did, hanging her head and scolding me, "How can you forget the most important meeting yet! Now that you've defeated Chaos, Crystal Tokyo must be built so you can begin ruling."

Mentally rolling my eyes, I continued with my charade, "Yeah Luna, I understand, and I'm sorry. It's just that I've got a lot on my plate, ya know? I mean, I'm supposed to reveal myself to the whole world! Just walking up to them and saying, 'Hey there, I'm like totally going to be the queen of your planet. What? Oh no, you don't have a choice, I'm going to marry the Earth Prince! Oh yeah, and also I'm Sailor Moon and the Moon Princess and I have magical powers.' I'll be locked into a mental asylum!"

Sighing, I sank down into my bed and hid my face in my hands, peeking at Luna in between my fingers. I saw a torn look cross her face and my heart clenched, I hated lying to her. Luna climbed into my lap and purred, "Usa, I know this is hard for you, but you've got to do this, for the sake of your people. Besides, this is the only way for Chibiusa to be born."

At the mention of my future daughter's name, I pretended to harden my resolve.

I stood determinedly and threw on my blue jeans and white, off-the-shoulder tank top. I slipped my feet into comfortable white flats and grabbed my purse, checking to see if I had my wallet, keys, and makeup kit. I gave a quick mental probe to my subspace pocket to make sure my broach was still in there, I carried it around everywhere even though I no longer needed it to access my senshi resources. I properly fixed my hair, brushed my teeth and faced Luna cheerfully, "Come on Luna! We've got a future city to build!"

Luna rolled her eyes at me, but came along never-the-less. I'd timed it so that we could drive calmly and arrive at the temple a few minutes early. Of course, I'd have to act like I'd barely gotten there…

REI'S POV

"Oh, that meatball head is always late!" I shouted in frustration, throwing my hands up.

"Give her a chance Rei; technically she still has five minutes to get here." Ami was first to defend her first friend.

"Besides, you've got to come up with another name for her; you know she's cut off her meatballs!" Mina-chan chided in amusement.

"And anyways, she's right over there!" Mako-chan pointed out as Usagi's blond head became visible as she cleared the last of the stairs with Luna balanced on her shoulder. She looked out of breath, her chest heaving up and down.

She gave us a cheerful smile, "Good morning!" The others responded with the like and Ami gave her a quick hug.

I smiled at her before arranging my face into a scowl; we have a ritual to perform!

"Finally got here meatball head? Were you too busy mooning over your precious Mamo-chan to get here on time?"

Smirking, I watched as her clear eyes blazed with pretend fury. A long time ago, we decided to put on our mock fights, everyone thought they were real, but I knew by the twinkle in her eye that she enjoyed them as much as I did.

She had just begun to fire back a retort when Luna cut in, "Girls, no fighting; we have a serious matter to discuss."

Aww, guess we'll have to do this later! I winked at Usagi and she blew me a kiss in return.

We all trooped into my room and settled in our selected spots. Ami, always the logical one, was first to speak, "Setsuna-san refused to allow me to scan Crystal Tokyo, claiming that it could affect the timeline so I created an estimated model. Using my scale model, I've analyzed the similarities and compatibilities of both present day Tokyo and Crystal Tokyo. Taking into consideration that the Imperium Silver Crystal will be necessary for most of the crucial elements, I've come up with the conclusion that Crystal Tokyo can be brought back when Usagi's powers reach their ultimate culmination.

Err… What?

I smiled inwardly when I heard Mina-chan complain, "Ami! Quit with the smart words will you please?"

Luna looked up from her spot with Artemis, "What Ami meant is that Crystal Tokyo will be able to be created when Usa is most powerful because it takes a lot of magical strength to do create a kingdom with no structured base ready."

"So you mean she still doesn't have her full powers? That's a lot of power in such a tiny package!" Mako-chan commented. Usagi scowled up at her which only resulted in Mako-chan's patting the shorter girl's head.

We all chuckled at Usagi's pouting face.

Suddenly, Usagi's face brightened and a voice called out, "Morning Koneko!"
