For the One I Love
Chapter 17
"Collision"


"What is this place?"

The clacking of heeled shoes echoed off what appeared to be dark marbled floors. The King had lead them to the center of the ruins, the base of where what looked like giant crystals stuck out from the ground.

"The ruins of our old base." The King replied. "The enemy's power should not be able to reach us here."

"Where's Chibi-Usa?" Sailor Moon asked pleadingly.

"Do not worry." He replied. "She is safe and protected. First, I want you to listen to what I am going to say now." Endymion rose his staff in hand, causing the entire room to be cast in one giant hologram. The Senshi gaped wide eyed, as shimmering stars fluttered all around them as if they were in space. Star Fighter however, clutched her hands tightly. This was it, she was finally going to learn Usagi's destiny, the thing she felt was holding Usagi back.

The King began to tell his tale as the hologram swirled around beginning to paint it. "A great calamity befell the Earth that you live on now, and the Earth settled into a cold sleep. It slumbered on for a long, long time. In time, it became the thirtieth century and with the power of the Silver Crystal and Neo Queen Serenity, Earth was awakened. And with Neo Queen Serenity as their queen, Earth began to prosper, centered around the future city, Crystal Tokyo."

"Neo Queen Serenity." The name was all the confirmation Fighter needed. So that was it. Usagi's destiny was to become queen. To protect and bring the Earth back under the rule of The Silver Millennium like in ancient times, with Mamoru at her side as King. She bit her lip as what felt like a thousand needles were thrust into her body. Serenity, light of hope and possessor of the most powerful Sailor Crystal, it only made sense for her to regain her title as queen. But what was more, she was the most self-less person Fighter had ever met, and she knew she would never be able to stand down from a destiny of protecting.

Suddenly the words spoken to Seiya during what felt like so long ago, at the temple that spring day had more meaning. "I love Mamoru- I always will. I guess you could say it's destiny…" "I can't love you. I just can't." But still…

Fighter glanced over to Sailor Moon, waiting for the same recognition on her face at the name, but she was entranced too deeply by the king and his story.

"But evil beings appeared, who wanted to conquer this peaceful world. After fighting numerous intense battles, we suppressed those evil beings. However, many of them did not want to be cleansed by the Silver Crystal and they journeyed out into space. After that, Crystal Tokyo prospered more than ever and the people lead peaceful lives, but the planet Nemesis-"

"The planet Nemesis?" Jupiter asked.  

"It is the tenth planet of the solar system."

"The tenth planet?" Fighter raised her eyebrows at the King, then looked up at the image of a giant floating green rock hanging over his head.

"The phantom Dark Planet, whose orbit was impossible to calculate and for the longest time, we could not locate its presence. We found that it was discharging an enormous amount of negative energy, and so its existence finally became clear, but…"

"That's where you found the evil beings who left Earth!" Artemis exclaimed.

"Exactly." Endymion nodded. "We did not know then, but the beings living there had changed into a life form that possessed a peculiar supernatural power. They were the Black Moon, the clan of the Dark Moon! Nemesis suddenly emitted a very powerful negative energy and attacked our Crystal Tokyo. Many warriors were killed, and leaving our final stronghold, Crystal Palace, and a deathly silence fell upon the rest of the world. The four guardian deities who protect this city, Sailor Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, and Venus, are expending their energy even now, desperately guarding this city."

"Warriors with the same name as us…" Mars gazed almost dreamily at the hologram of four familiar looking women in front of her.

"What does that mean?" Venus gasped taking in the mirrored reflections of themselves.

"They are you in the future."

"What?!" They all shouted in bewilderment.  

"Due to the effects of the evil power, many of the people in this city have been put to sleep now and this city is facing destruction. I have also been gravely injured and am unable to move. Right now, the only thing that can save this Earth from the evil power is the legendary Silver Crystal." The king paused for a moment, lowering his head in a wounded manner. "However, the only person who can use it, Neo Queen Serenity, is in a deep sleep. Being unable to awaken her, we have no means to save this place now…." He trailed off, gripping his staff tightly in hand and trembling.  

Finally, realization began to dawn across the Senshi's faces at King Endymion's words. Sailor Moon's eyes widened, a kind of sparkling mixture of disbelief and curiosity washed over them.  "Neo Queen Serenity, who can use the legendary Silver Crystal…" she started, "You're not saying that's…"

The king smiled. "Yes, she is you in the future, Sailor Moon."

"What?!" She shrieked. "No way! I'm the Neo Queen Serenity in the thirtieth century?" She paused for a moment to look up at Tuxedo Kamen. "No way!" She grabbed his shirt in complete shock.

"Would you like to see a hologram of yourself?" The future king asked. Sailor Moon hesitated, still clutching Tuxedo Kamen's shirt in an astounded state. She perked up a bit when she felt his hand slide over hers.

"Go ahead." He said gently, nudging her forward.

The king waved his staff, positioning another hologram in the middle of the floor before them. Fighter's breath caught in her throat. In the center of what looked like a bed encased in palace crystal, laid the most beautiful Usagi he had ever seen. A form fitting white silk dress wrapped around her curvature form, adorned with golden beading on top and wings forming at the back, very similar to the Usagi that had been dancing in Fighter's dreams. Her long flowing hair ran down past her feet, and atop her head sat a gold crown. The mark of the Moon Kingdom on her forehead.

"King?" Mercury voiced. "What is this stuff wrapped around the Queen's body?"

"Could it be…"

"Silver Crystal?!" The cats asked.

"No, it is not." He replied. "Just as the enemy's attack was about to hit her directly, the Sailor Senshi used their powers and wrapped the Queen's body in crystal. Since then, the Queen has been asleep, never waking. And the daughter of the Queen and myself, Small Lady…"

"What?" Fighter tripped, tearing his gaze from the beautiful goddess before him. She looked up at the King as the hologram faded anyway, revealing a trap door in the floor that began to open. The small pink haired girl laid curled up inside of it, sleeping peacefully. "What!!?"

"Chibi-Usa!" Sailor Moon shot straight for her, rushing to her side and picking her up from the small compartment. "So, this is where you were." She coddled the sleeping child.

"Sailor Moon, Tuxedo Kamen, she is your daughter." The King said almost amused.

"What?!" Moon blushed fiercely. "Chibi-Usa is my daughter?! Me and Mamo's?" She looked over at Tuxedo Kamen, and the two exchanged an embarrassingly wary look. "What?!" They both blushed even deeper.
 
In all the excitement, no one saw Fighter stumble into the background.  Her body stood still against one of the palace pillars, her face drained of color as she stared wide-eyed from the girl, to Sailor Moon, to Tuxedo Kamen… her mouth hanging slightly open. Usagi, his Usagi, had to have known. "A daughter…"  Fighter continued to gaze at the couple and the girl. "They have a daughter together…" And that's when she felt it, her heart truly break.

She had been sure, Fighter had been so sure that those two words, 'I can't',  had to have meant something more than this. She knew for sure now, that Usagi had been talking about her density. She couldn't love Seiya because of it, because of her duties as Queen. Her pure heart could never give up serving the people. Yet Fighter also saw hope in those words, hope that she indirectly meant that if it was not for her being bound to her destiny, that she could love Seiya… that there may be feelings there…. but now, with a daughter in the picture… had Fighter been reading too much into how Usagi phrased her words, or was there truly meaning in them? Why couldn't she have just simply stated, 'I don't love you.' instead? Fighter bit her lip.

"What year, month and day did that happen?!" Mars blurted out, cutting across Fighter's thoughts.

"Please forgive my daughter's many breaches of decorum. She is desperate. I used to always tell her about the story of Sailor Moon. The most powerful Senshi of legend, Sailor Moon, and that is why she suddenly came up with the idea of going to the world of the past to seek help." The king told the group. "The Black Moon, the clan of the Dark Moon… their objective is to defeat us, steal the legendary Silver Crystal and then conquer the world. The enemy realized they could not take our Crystal Palace, so now they are trying to destroy the world of the past, where you live."

"If the world of the past is destroyed…" Luna started.

"This world will also fall?" Artemis finished.

"I want you to protect the world you live in at all costs."

The Senshi nodded with determination.

"Without fail!"

"We will!"

"Wait." After slightly regaining her composure, Star Fighter walked back towards the pack. She stopped by Sailor Moon's side, keeping eye contact with the King to avoid looking at the small child anymore. "You still haven't explained something to me."

The King nodded for her to continue, everyone else surveyed her with interest.

"If this is the future thirtieth century, then how do you not know who I am? There's no way you've simply forgotten me, there's no way you don't have Kinmoku on record, there's no way you forget the battle with Galaxia, and what's more- in my time there is no such planet as Nemesis."

"In your time?" The King asked perplexed, shifting his gaze to his past self.

"I- don't fully understand either." said Tuxedo Kamen. Sailor Star Fighter pulled out her time key, revealing it to the King.

"But, that's-" He said taken aback.  

"I'm from the future, but not this future.  Three years into their future." Fighter pointed to the people beside him. "Two years from their time, I meet Usagi when she is sixteen, traveling from the planet Kinmoku. We fight Galaxia together, here on this planet. So if this is the thirtieth century, why do you not know any of this?"

King Endymion finally gave her the expression she had expected to be greeted with since the very beginning, he narrowed his eyes at her. "You're not supposed to be here are you?" Fighter was caught off guard. "That time key is Pluto's, it lets you travel to even forbidden points in time. You somehow stole it, and now you're messing with important timelines, do you know how dangerous that is?"

"M-me?" The Senshi said irritated. "You just welcomed your past self, wife, and friends into your home, and told them everything about their future lives! How is that not messing with time?"

"This was always supposed to happen. Sailor Moon, Tuxedo Kamen, and the Sailor Senshi were always meant to come here and learn of their future. Something was always meant to happen to draw them here- and it happened to be the fall of Crystal Tokyo - just like what happened with The Silver Millennium of the past, where the Queen was Princess."

"How do you kno-"  

"The reason I have no knowledge of you Senshi, or Kinmoku, is because it has not happened yet." Endymion said firmly. "I only knew you were a Senshi when I first saw you because of Pluto, but I have no memory of you."

"Wait." Jupiter interjected, scratching her head. "How does that make sense?"

"This is the future, isn't it?" Venus inquired.

"Yes. This is the future- the future thirtieth century- a thirtieth century based on the reflection of your time of events, of your current timeline." The king pointed to the Senshi of the past.  "You." he pointed to Fighter. "If you were to travel to the thirtieth century from your present, their future, it would be entirely different, because three years have passed since their time that could have reshaped the future."

Star Fighter blinked. "You're saying…"

"The future is tied to the events in the preset that shape it. This future reflects their present, and your future reflects your present because things can-"

"Change." Fighter finished for him. "Things can change." Her voice escalated, rejuvenation washing over her.  How could she have not seen it before, the evidence of what the King was saying was right in front of her- the small pink haired girl in Sailor Moon's arms. As soon as she reveled she was from the thirtieth century, Fighter should have known. She was from the future, yet she was much younger than the Chibi-Usa he had come across in his own timeline, because the future from his present was different than this one. Then it was possible, to change the future. This was all she needed to know, her resolve was stronger than ever. She was going back to The Silver Millennium.

"Hang on." Mars sounded hopeful. "You said in your time there's no planet Nemesis right? That means we defeat them?"

"To the best of my knowledge," Fighter replied, "but my Usagi never talks of a Black Moon, so I don't know how."

"It doesn't matter!" Venus said happily. "You being here is all the confirmation we need that we beat them!"

In an instant, the King's projection began to warp then suddenly fade. Before anyone had time to react, a vigorous gust of black wind funneled around the room, throwing everyone off balance as if the air were being sucked out.  

"I wouldn't count on that." A foreboding voice reverberated high off the walls. Following was the appearance of a young man, who grinned slyly above them.

"Who are you?" Sailor Moon hollered through the storm.

"NO!" Star Fighter shrieked, causing startled looks all around her. She didn't notice, all she saw was the man above her. Silver-white hair, piercing violet eyes, long purple cape and all dressed in white… Fighter's eyes dilated in fear, the man from her nightmares. "No!" He was real? She grabbed Sailor Moon's arm in a panic.  

"I came here with certain intentions," he smirked at Sailor Moon, "but I heard quite an interesting story just now." The man in white constricted his eyes as the dark symbol on his forehead transfigured into a third eye. The third eye shot out a beam of light, which immobilized the Senshi.

"You. Senshi." He spoke to Fighter. "You will give me that key."

"Like- hell-" Fighter grunted against the force.

"I can't breathe." The Senshi coughed, trying hard to fight back.

"Burning…"

"Shine Aq…"

"It's no use." Jupiter groaned. "I'm losing my power."

"Come!" The man said with force. Star Fighter gasped as she began to rise, her hand running across Sailor Moon's arm. With a sudden jolt she stopped, suspended in air. Her head whirled around to see Sailor Moon clutching her hand, Chibi-Usa slumped across her other arm.

"Nrgg…" She gritted her teeth, fighting to hold on. Fighter jolted again as her hand slipped, and Sailor Moon moved slightly with her. "NRGG!!"

"Sailor Moon…"

"It's no use." The man in white said as Sailor Moon slid forward some more, losing more grip on Fighter's hand. "If I am to fail here, then I will go elsewhere and change that future. Now, hand me that time key."

Fighter tried twisting her body to aim at him. "Star-" She wheezed. "Serious- nargh!!"

"Fighter!" Sailor Moon screamed as their hands broke. The next hands Fighter felt upon her were the man's. She kicked blindly, one after the other hoping to do any damage. She must have hit him because the next moment the beam stopped, but before she could fall away she was locked in his iron grip. His hand knocked her hard in the chest as he tried grabbing for the time key. Determined, Fighter sank her teeth into his flesh, resulting in her windpipe being crushed in a chokehold. With his opponent gagging for air, the man seized his chance and clenched his fist around the key. Out of nowhere, head splitting pain shot across Fighter's forehead, blurring her eyes with tears as the man laughed.

"Don't come!" Usagi's voice screamed in Fighter's head. "Don't come!"

"No." Fighter fought against the pain. "Not now."

The man raised the time key still attached to Fighter's neck into the air. "If you won't let me go alone, I'll take you with me and finish you off there. Guardian of time!" The key activated.
Star Fighter struggled with all her might. If she could only knock his arm away from her temporarily….
"Take me to the past, where the Queen is prince-"

"-Tsukino Usagi!" In his excited anticipation, the man dropped his hold just long enough for Fighter to choke out one breath of air, and she wasn't going to waste it. It was all she could think of to prevent him from going back to The Silver Millennium. As the pink light began to wrap around them, Fighter looked down into Sailor Moon's eyes.

They looked directly back, filled to the brim with hurt and sadness. Her palm was outstretched as if Fighter's hand could still be there there. She slowly shook her head from side to side as her lips formed words Fighter could not hear, but still understood.

"Don't go…"

Fighter smiled sorrowfully down at the young Sailor Moon below him. She had gotten to know her all over again, fall in love with her all over again. Her energy, her smile, her sultry attitude towards Seiya in the beginning, her beauty, and kindness… she was almost her Usagi again, and now…

"I'm sorry." Fighter mouthed back. With one final glow, and one final desperate attempt from Sailor Moon to reach out her hand, Fighter and the man vanished into the light. The last thing Fighter saw before vanishing was once again, an Usagi with tears in her eyes
.
CRACK! THUD! Both Star Fighter's and the man's body came crashing down on top of each other as they hit hard rocky ground. Fighter quickly began scrambling to her feet but was immediately yanked downward. She hit the floor hard, and the man began to pin her down. Fighter swung out her leg. Knocking him off his knees, she kicked him off of her. His hand wrapped around her ankle, but Fighter, now upright, launched him off her with one final assault. She stumbled backwards until she smashed into the wall behind her, panting heavily from the scuffle. She quickly took in her surroundings, a dark rocky cave, before the man in white rose to his feet as well, furious and also panting. Her eyes fixated on him, anticipating his next attack until she saw something just beyond. Below them sat a large flat section of the cave, and on it stood what appeared to be people. Fighter squinted her eyes, and inhaled sharply.

The Usagi from his dreams, with white flowing gown and gold beading, cradled what appeared to be an unconscious Tuxedo Kamen's head in her lap. The Inner Senshi and the cats stood off to the side, and a ponytailed man Fighter had never seen before stood in front of Usagi. Fighter's adversary caught on, and turned his head to look as well. As he did, a light emanated from Usagi transforming her into Sailor Moon, before she slumped over onto the Tuxedo Kamen.

"Don't even think about it!" Star Fighter growled. "I won't let you touch her."

"No." He said glancing back at Fighter. "I need Princess Serenity before she was Sailor Moon. I need that key!"

Fighter was prepared for it. She jumped, rolling to the left as his attack smashed the rock that was behind her.

"Star Serious Laser!" The man sidestepped the attack as well. Both of them struck at the same time, causing a small explosion as the spells met midair. Fighter dived behind one of the larger rocks for shelter. When the last chunk crumbled to the ground, Fighter countered. She burst out into the open, attacking the spot he had dodged behind, but he wasn't there. Turning around too late, Star Fighter once more found herself wrapped up in his hold. He quickly grabbed the chain attached to the key and wrapped it around Fighter's neck so she couldn't speak.

"Now, where was I before you so rudely interrupted? Ah yes…" Fighter's eyes widened. "Guardian of time!" He called out to the heavens. "Take me to the past, where the Queen was Princess! The Silver Millennium!" The familiar pink light began to wrap around both of their bodies. As Fighter began to see her form vanish into the light, the man yanked her head upward by the neck and grinned. He wrenched off the key. Snapping the chain against Fighters throat he shoved the coughing Senshi forward out of the light. Fighter gripped it in agony and looked up at the man, just in time to see him fade away.
 
The Senshi's mouth dropped, a silent scream catching in her windpipe. "What-" The throbbing pain began to subside as panic started to flood over. "What have I done?!" Not only did she just allow an unknown man with plans for the Princess escape to the past- but he took the time key- her time key! Without her. Fighter ran her hands across her chest where the key originally dangled, still gaping at the spot he disappeared from. Her body began to shudder, and she collapsed to the ground. "What- am I going to do?" She shook. "I- I'm!" She shouted.

"An idiot!" An angry voice rang across the cave walls. "A giant, huge, STUPID, IDIOT!" There was no mistaking that voice, but it sounded too clear to be an illusion. Fighter turned around in disbelief, only to be roughly lifted off the floor.

"What did you do!!??"  Star Maker barked, clenching balls of Fighter's outfit in her fists.

"Maker… Healer…" Fighter looked at them in awe. "How-"

"Shut up! What did you do?!" Maker asked again.  "Just now?! What happened?!"

"W- what do you mean?" Fighter asked confused.

"We've been trying to travel safely to your sorry ass to bring you back since you left!" Healer complained angrily. "Then after getting your little letter from that woman, and figuring out where you were heading next, we had no choice but to rush here and stop you using this." She held up a small shiny piece of metal.

"You have a time key?" She gasped, with a feeling of relief.

"But then as soon we started to make the jump, everyone in the present fainted! Everyone Fighter! So answer me again, what the hell did you just do?!" Maker shook her.

"Everyone fainted?" Fighter stared into Maker's cold angry eyes. The fact that she was so upset unnerved Fighter, it was usually Healer that was the angry irrational one. She thought of her time key, how it had disappeared with the man in white moments before they arrived. It was the only explanation. "This is serious…"

"Yeah, more serious than you could ever know. Do you realize what you've done, to Usagi? What you were about to-?" Maker asked.

"Whoa, wait." Fighter cut her off. "To Usagi?"

"You've been making her sick Fighter. Extremely sick, messing so closely with her timeline." Healer watched the words sink into Fighter's mind as alarm spread across his features. "There were a couple of times where-" She just trailed off.

Fighter's heart sank. "I- didn't know."

"You don't know a lot of things, which is why we came to stop you. Now-" Maker set her back down to the floor, but didn't dare let go of her clothing. "You're coming back with us and we're going to fix this mess."

"No!" She yelled.

"Fighter!"

"Really?!"

"No, you don't understand! I can't! I have to go The Silver Millennium!"

"STILL?!"

"Give it up already!"

"You don't understand!" Fighter pleaded.

"No! You don't understand!" Maker finally snapped. "Pluto told us what was at stake, what going to The Silver Millennium could cost us! Do you know Fighter?  Do you? No! You don't! The Silver Millennium, where Usagi lives as Princess Serenity! Where she dies, in love with Prince Endymion! If that doesn't happen, if she doesn't fall for Endymion, if she doesn't commit suicide over losing him, if her mother doesn't see and send them to the future, if she doesn't become Sailor Moon all because these chain of events are stopped, our entire universe will cease to exist! And you, stupid fool blinded by selfish one sided love were about to put that all at stake!"

"……"

All thoughts and words left Fighter's body, she could only look at Maker with the deadest of expressions. After a few moments, Maker closed her eyes and sighed heavily, letting go of Fighter. She knew she wouldn't run now.

"Then I- I really have done something terrible." Fighter whispered. "And now there really is no choice, we have to go back…" Healer opened her mouth to continue the yelling match, but Maker held up a hand to stop her. She could tell the difference in Fighter's eyes, the determination to alter Usagi's past to love her had changed to one she often saw when searching together for their own princess…. a saddened determination of protection.

"….What have you done?"

"I came across a man- an old enemy of theirs. I think- by the way he- I think he's in love, or rather- obsessed with Usagi." Star Fighter choked down air. "He stole my time key- and time jumped to The Silver Millennium."

"Fighter-" It was worse than being yelled at. The sheer look of disappointment, terror, and cold silence made Fighter's body feel lifeless.

"Please." She begged, finding it hard to meet their eyes. "I need your help. This man will stop at nothing. I have to fix my mistake, to protect her, but I can't do this alone..."

"Like you said, we don't really have much of a choice at this point, do we?" Maker said coolly. "Healer-" Sailor Star Healer stepped forward, holding out the time key in her hand. Maker placed her hand on it, demonstrating for Fighter to do the same. As Fighter placed hers, Maker looked up at her. "You know what this means right? What has to be done, going back?"

"Yeah…" Star Fighter dolefully smiled. "After all this, it must be my punishment. How ironic." She chucked, then stopped as she felt tears beginning to form at the back of her eyes. She quickly shook it off, hoping no one noticed.

"Can you do it?" Maker asked softer.

"I'll save her." She said determinedly. " I'll make sure that man stays away from her, and… to save our universe, and insure her future… I'll make sure Princess Serenity gets to love Prince Endymion."
"Alright then, let's go. To The Silver Millennium."

Sailor Star Fighter glanced over her shoulder out of curiosity, back down to the flat section of cave. However, just like Fighter was feeling, it was already empty.

OoOoOoOoOoOoOoO

Click, clack…

"Just beyond here is where the royal gardens are. Not as gorgeous as what you would find on Earth of course, but still quite beautiful I'd hope."

"I'm sure they're lovely."

Click, clack…

"And, oh- there's my daughter. Darling! Would you mind coming over here for a moment? She's always here, one of her favorite spots. Yes-" A woman placed her hands on a young girl's shoulders as she approached her mother. "Darling, we have a visitor here with us today. Introduce yourself." She added is a whisper.

The girl, who wore a flowing white gown with gold beading, stepped away from her mother and approached the man in white, curtseying. She looked up at him with her royal blue eyes, and smiled politely.

"May I introduce my daughter, Princess Serenity. Serenity, Prince Dimande from Nemesis. He'll be staying with us for a short time as we discuss a possible alliance between our two kingdoms."

"It's my pleasure to meet you." The Princess smiled and curtseyed again.

"Trust me." Prince Dimande grinned. "The pleasure will be all mine."

For the One I Love
Chapter Sixteen
“Mysteries of Time”



Carefully, little by little, Rei and Minako led Usagi down the staircase from her bedroom, into the hallway, and across into the living room.  The room was crowded with people, some sitting, others standing, or leaning against the wall. It was silent, and the pizza sat on the dining room table, getting cold.

A young woman sat in the midst of all the chaos. Upon seeing Usagi, she instantly rose from the chair and smiled. She had brown eyes and her matching brown hair touched the center of her back, slightly curling out at the tips. She wore a frilly baby doll blue shirt, white belt and white shorts with black knee-socks.

“Tsukino-san.” She continued to smile. “You probably don’t remember me, we only met a few times and it’s been a while, but, it’s nice to see you again.”

“Hitomi, right?” Usagi asked. Rei and Minako helped Usagi sit down on the couch, across from where Hitomi stood. Hitomi took the initiative and sat back down.

“Oh you do remember. That makes me happy.” She said. “I’m sorry.” She also added frowning and looking at Usagi. “I didn’t know you were sick, but I wouldn’t have asked for your time if it wasn’t important. I’m happy to see you have so many friends to help out though.”

“Er, it’s alright.” Usagi said. The truth was she didn’t really remember the girl at all, she just knew her name from Makoto. “You said… you have a message from Seiya?”

“Oh, yes. Actually…” The girl frowned a little with her eyes but retained her smile. A soft red appeared on her cheeks. “It’s silly I guess, but, I made a promise to him three years ago, when he quit at the clothing store, a promise I would read the letter he left me and do what it had asked.”

“Clothing store?” Minako asked.

“That’s how I knew Seiya. We were co-workers.” Hitomi replied. “The letter”, she went on, “it asked me to deliver a message to Usagi, the day after the exact date he quit the store, three years in the future.” She went on.

“And that’s today?” Usagi asked slightly stunned. “He quit?”

“I have a quick question.” Haruka interjected. “You knew Seiya, three years ago from work correct? And you met Usagi through Seiya?” Hitomi nodded. “You must have only known him for a short period, so, what exactly prompted you to honor such a thing, following the instructions of a letter for over three years by someone you barely knew?”

“I-” Hitomi blushed a deep shade of red. “It was my promise, as a goodbye gift. Not just for him, but for me too. I figured if I honored it, I- I could say goodbye myself- I uh- I loved Seiya.” She looked up at Usagi. “The night you left him, he wrote the letter and left too, even after I confessed myself- all he thought of was you.”

“I left him?” Usagi asked. Hitomi gave her a slightly quizzical look. “Oh right, I remember.” She lied quickly.  “Sorry, it was… a long time ago.”

“I understand.” Hitomi fiddled with her purse, opening the clutch and pulling out a small piece of paper. “Here, this came with the letter he left me; it’s the message for you.” Usagi reached out and took the small paper from Hitomi. She turned it over in her hands and her heart gave a small pang when she saw the word, “Dumpling” written on the front in Seiya’s handwriting.

Usagi unfurled the paper and read aloud, “I have failed here, but I know why, and I will try again elsewhere. A true time where I can win. Seiya.” Usagi put the letter down in her lap, horror struck. She looked around at the faces of her friends, who wore the same expression.

“What-”

“He never told me anything, I don’t know what it means or the story behind it.” Hitomi cut Haruka’s question off to her. “I just promised to deliver that, and I have, so-” Hitomi grabbed her purse and rose from the chair.  Before moving towards the door, Hitomi turned and looked back at Usagi.  

“Tsukino-san, a quick question of my own? Do you still keep in touch with Seiya? Did uh, did it ever work out between you two?”

“We’re…”

“Friends.” Haruka finished for Usagi.

“Friends.” Usagi mimicked Haruka. “We still talk once in a while but he lives… out of country, so it’s hard to stay in contact.”

“I’m glad you two stayed friends at least.” Hitomi smiled. “I’ve never seen two people so close to each other before like I did you two, even if you didn’t love him the way he loved you, made me quite jealous back then.” Usagi’s heart gave another pang. “Whatever happens, or doesn’t, I hope Seiya, and you, find happiness.” Hitomi held out her hand and shook Usagi’s. “It was really was nice seeing you again. Tell Seiya I say, ‘Hi’, and that I’ve kept my promise okay? Be happy Tsukino-san.” Hitomi broke hands with Usagi, and bowed to everyone else before heading to the door, Makoto as her guide out.

“Hitomi?” Usagi swiveled around in her chair and called.

“Yes?” She asked, peering from the corner.

“Are you happy?”

“Oh yes!” Hitomi raised her left hand, glowing. A small, silver object could be seen on her ring finger. “I’m actually on my way to go dress shopping! Goodbye Tsukino-san.”

“Goodbye…” Something inside of Usagi felt heavy and disturbed. She couldn’t quite place the feeling, so she clutched the letter more tightly in her hands. The room remained silent except for the quiet shuffling of putting on shoes around the corner, and the opening and closing of Usagi’s front door. When Makoto re-appeared around the corner alone, all hell broke loose.

“That idiot!”

“So he failed there?”

“That letter!”

“Is it true?”

“He’s going to time travel again?”

“He wouldn’t!?”

“But where too?”

“Hey!” Ami called out over the loud noise. “Just wait a minute! Everyone calm down! Let’s go over what we know and assume later alright?”

“Ami’s right.” Michiru said. "We know he's going to time jump again, it's just a matter of figuring out where so we can intercept and stop him."

"Right" Ami nodded. "He's in 1993. Winning over Usagi didn't work. He says he knows why, and is going to jump to a time where he says he can win. Those are the clues."

"When he stole the time key, he asked it to take him to a time where Usagi and Mamoru weren't together." Makoto glanced upwards, trying to think. "It took him to a time where they weren't but…"

"But…" Rei said trying to trail her thoughts. "But at the same time, they were. They had met before, fallen in love before, just at that moment, they were apart."

"A true time where I can win?" Minako slowly mimicked the words from the letter. "Where Usagi and Mamoru weren't together, hadn't met."

"It would of had to been before Beryl even appeared on Earth." Luna chimed in. "Usagi met Mamoru as Tuxedo Kamen the very day she became Sailor Moon."

Usagi closed her eyes, allowing Minako's words to swirl around in her mind. A true time…. the first time… before she had ever met Mamoru. Her mind continued to swirl, swirling into thoughts, into images, images of swirling cherry blossoms…. cherry blossoms. She remembered cherry blossoms, on a picturesque sunny day. And words. Seiya's words, "How do you know it's destiny? What if… we had met earlier?"  And hers, "I never would have known you first. You know the story…I'm Princess Serenity from the moon. Mamo-chan is Prince Endymion of Earth from over thousands of years ago during the Silver Millennium…" Usagi gasped.

"What is it?" They all looked at her.

"…Millennium…" Her voice was barely above a whisper.

"What?"

"The Silver Millennium." She said louder. "That's where he's going."

A stunned silence suffocated the entire room, as if time itself had frozen. Yet birds were chirping from outside, a world that seemed forever away, out of reach. Nothing dared move, not even a fly. Then, the hem of Michiru's dress slowly swept upward as she began to stride forward. Her feet brushed against the soft carpet, and came to a halt before Setsuna's.

"We all know this is bad." The aqua haired woman said. "But I can see it in your eyes. It's all over your face, saying that we don't even know half the real terror of this situation. So tell us Setsuna, just how bad is it?"  

The Senshi of time stared at her friend and comrade for a moment, the terror never leaving her eyes. Michiru stared back, unflinching, and then Setsuna lowered her own into a low glare. "The destruction of the universe itself."

"WHAT?!"

"You can't be serious." Yaten exclaimed crossly, rising from his lean against the couch. "How can going to one time period possibly do that? Seriously mess up time, possibly destroy Earth, slight chance at a galaxy, yes, but actually destroy the entire universe?"

"You seem to say 'Earth' lightly in that equation." Haruka's mutter was loud enough to cause a detesting glare from Yaten and an elbow from Michiru.

"It's not just any time period." Setsuna said harshly. "Time is complicated. There are certain points, certain fixed events in time that must always happen. They're rare, very rare, but they exist. Some call them destiny, but they're far more complicated than that. In the manner of time travel, they're called the Forbidden Era's."

"Forbidden Era's?" Ami inquired.

"Yes. Traveling to one is impossible without one of my time keys. Even then, without permission, which was never granted for any reason whatsoever, going there was punishable by death."

"So?" Taiki asked. "Why is that era so forbidden? How could Seiya possibly destroy the universe?"

"No one knows exactly how old the Silver Millennium is, but ancient scholars were led to believe it was the first born system from the Cauldron…. some myths even claim older than the Cauldron itself-"

"That's impossible." Taiki accused shortly. "Nothing is older than the Galaxy Cauldron."

"They're merely myths. But whatever its age, it was always destined to fall. Noting must change that-"

"But why?" Minako cut across Setsuna. "Why did it have to? Was there really no possibility of us living on in peace with our queen, our princess, our people? Of saving our world? That fate was too cruel! Why not change it?"

"Minako…" Artemis looked at her sadly and rubbed his head against her leg. Setsuna shared in her sympathy, but it was Hotaru that stepped forward.

"With death comes rebirth." She said. "You're forgetting what was born from the ashes of our kingdom. Something born from the strength her mother left behind, in a wish for a new life. Something vital to the existence of this world."  They followed her pointed finger to Usagi.

"Sailor Moon?" Minako said slowly. Hotaru nodded.

"Born first princess of the Silver Millennium, from the Cauldron itself into her mother's womb. Possessor of the strongest Sailor Crystal in existence, yet unable to transform. The Silver Crystal was always Princess Serenity's heart, her soul… the queen would never have been able to fully defeat Metalia, filled with sadness in her heart or not. It was Serenity's final act of suicide, that arose so much emotion in The Queen she was able to send us all into a new future, thus allowing Sailor Moon to be born. As both a princess and a warrior, Sailor Moon was able not only to master the power of her crystal, but exceed any limits of power anyone ever thought possible."

"And you're saying this would have never happened unless the Silver Millennium fell? The birth of Sailor Moon?" Taiki demanded.

"Yes." Setsuna replied simply. "Without the power of the Silver Crystal as it is today, this universe would have ended long ago, if not the moment the queen was unable to stop Metalia. All she could do was send us to the future, giving new hope in the form of her daughter, but to do that, her heart needed to be set in the right direction. The princess had to tragically die at her own hands, her kingdom and everyone around it. Only through the sorrow of Queen Serenity's final wish, a new life would be set in motion. The birth of Sailor Moon, enabling all future children of the Silver Millennium to transform and shape their own crystals as well."

"This is too much…" Makoto said crouching to a sit against the wall.

"How? How do you know for absolutely sure?"

Setsuna looked over Yaten for a moment as if she was considering something, biting the inside of her cheek before finally speaking. "Time… is complicated. I was born at a certain time, but at the same time, I never truly existed. My life was spent in solitude, guarding the doors of time. Some doors were sealed off even to me, while sometimes doors would just appear or disappear. Through one door I could see our princess as a child, while through the other I saw her as Queen of Crystal Tokyo. Just from that I knew, for whatever reason the peace on our Moon would not be allowed to last."

"Did you always know?" Makoto asked. "About the fall of our kingdom?"

"In a way." She replied. "All I knew was it must change from the future I saw, but that was all I knew…. being the keeper of time didn't enable you to know everything…. " She paused again before continuing.  "In my current timeline, in Usagi's past or present depending how you looked at it, she traveled to her own future. I died, breaking a vital taboo in order to stop tragedy from occurring. By the power of Neo Queen Serenity, I was reborn human in this era, and by becoming human I now have a future self as well. The true question is however, will history repeat itself? When Usagi becomes Neo Queen Serenity, will the one known as Death Phantom rise to power all over again? After all, she defeated the Death Phantom of the future, not the past. The answer is no, because when this Usagi becomes Queen she will know how to handle the situation, all because Chibi-Usa came back to the past for help and showed her. But how can it not happen if it already happened in the future? Does that mean it was always meant to happen that way, or was something truly able to change it? Like I said…. time is complicated."

"So… okay… " Taiki rubbed the temple of his forehead while Yaten looked as if he had just been hit the face with a baseball. "You know what you're talking about, we'll leave it at that. Knowing all this now, how do we stop Seiya? What's the probability Seiya actually interferes enough to the point of stopping Usagi's past self from committing suicide?"

"Pretty good since that's exactly what he's going there to do." Haruka said.

"How do you mean?" Taiki eyed her suspiciously.

"And why exactly did you?" Yaten asked Usagi very curiously.

Minako beat Haruka and Usagi to both points. "Princess Serenity committed suicide in sorrow at the loss of Prince Endymion, whom she fell in love with and lost. What's Seiya going there to try and do? To stop the very thing that in the end, made it possible for Serenity to be reborn here as Sailor Moon. It was the Queen's sorrowful wish over her suicide to the loss of Endymion to send her daughter to a future where she could be with whom she loved that got us here. That wish won't happen if Serenity doesn't fall in love and commit suicide."

"Even if Seiya fails to keep them apart again", Rei explained, "You know he'll stop at nothing to keep Serenity alive not knowing what's at stake."

"We can't waste time any longer, the severity of the issue is too great. We have to act, and send Taiki and Yaten to stop him tonight." Setsuna rose from her leaning position against the wall.  

"Tonight?" A few people said taken aback.

"What about the portal Neo Queen Serenity was setting up?" Inquired Luna.

Setsuna shook her head. "We won't be able to wait for it, not with how dire everything has truly become. Besides, if Taiki and Yaten are to go back to the Silver Millennium, only a time key can get them there."

"We're sending even more people back to the Silver Millennium? With a second time key?"

"Luna, Setsuna's right though." Ami chimed in. "At this point, what other choice do we really have?"

"I'm hoping if we do this immediately, we may be able to intercept Seiya before he actually makes the jump if he hasn't already. If we find he has gone… Yaten and Taiki know the situation at hand."

"…. …. Alright." Luna finally agreed. "If we're time jumping we should move to Rei's where there's more open space."

"Someone also needs to let Mamoru know." Artemis said.

"He's off work soon, isn't he Usagi?" Michiru asked her.

Usagi nodded. "Yeah, I'll call him."

"Alright then." Setsuna cut across the room. "Let's move everything over to Rei's and get ready." The still unsteadiness of the room finally broke out into rapid movement in every direction. A few left ahead with Rei, while others stayed behind grabbing at the cold pizza, or things of Usagi's to bring along.  

"Um, Setsuna?" She turned around at the small voice behind her, straight down into a pair bright royal blue eyes.

"Usagi? Is everything okay?"

"Yes. I was just wondering, uh…" She fidgeted with her hands. "What you were talking about earlier, er, about Crystal Tokyo changing… does, does that mean it's not a fixed point? A Forbidden Era? That the future can change? Ah-"

Setsuna's hand patted the top of Usagi's head catching her off guard. When she moved it away Usagi was surprised to see a smile spread across the woman's face. "No one should know too much of their future Usagi, because it leads them to believe there's no such thing as choice. And we do get to choose Usagi, we do."

"But-" Usagi started. "But I am destined to rule aren't I so-"

"Yes. It's your birthright to rule as Serenity. In honesty, would you want it any other way? Not protecting the people?" She chucked slightly at Usagi's shake of the head no. "Life is about the journey Usagi. And choice. How do you want to get there? And who do you want by your side?"

"I - !!!" She began startled. Setsuna just placed her hand back on her head.

"Be happy Usagi. That's all anyone of us could ever want for you. Be happy and live, okay?" Setsuna patted her head one final time before taking off to help the others, leaving a heavily flushed Usagi alone in her living room, her heart more wrenched than before.

OoOoOoOoOoOoOoO

More nightmares, more headaches, and the words, “Don’t come!” The dream of a dancing Usagi once more graced Seiya's night terrors. The story was the same, the long flowing gown, the cackling man in white carrying her away, a bright glow from behind them, almost like moonlight. It was blinding, and every time Fighter closed her eyes she could see it with an added throb from her head.

“Um, are you okay?” Sailor Moon delicately asked from behind her.

"Yeah." Fighter grumbled. "Just a headache is all."

"Oh, okay." Fighter looked up at Sailor Moon, causing her to rapidly turn away. Star Fighter sighed. Not much was said after Seiya’s revelation the night before, mostly just silence. Eventually Usagi awkwardly turned to go, leading the rest of the group behind her. Fighter assumed it was only on Usagi’s wishes that the rest of the group hadn’t made any remarks, which she appreciated, but she could still sense a change among them. The curiosity, the warm thanks for help, all vanished and replaced with a stiff sense of duty. She was another Sailor Senshi along for the ride now, and that was it. Then there was Usagi herself. This new found Usagi was slightly cumbersome to Fighter. She wasn't sure what was going on in the girls mind, and wasn't sure how to act upon it under their current circumstances….
   
It couldn't have been too long ago that Fighter met with the Sailor Senshi to time jump into the 30th Century, but after what already felt like forever walking through it, they were now lost among the corridor of space-time, separated from Tuxedo Kamen and the small girl. Fighter tried half heartedly to blink away the headache, knowing it was no use. The time travel was not helping.

"Where are we?" Jupiter asked.  

"It's likely a space-time pocket in the crevices of space-time." Mercury replied.
"Then, if we never find Chibi-Usa…"

"We will be lost, wandering in space-time for all eternity." Venus finished for Jupiter.

"You guys, I'm sorry." Sailor Moon sniffled. "All because I let go of her hand…"

"This is not the time to say things like that, now is it?" Mars reassured her. "Anyway, let's look for Chibi-Usa and Tuxedo Kamen."

"But…"

"We'll think of some way." As the girls were gearing up to start looking, Fighter had only just began to rise from her crouched position when Sailor Moon's Crystal began to glow.  

"What's going on? The Silver Crystal…"

"Oh, look…" Jupiter pointed out in response. Through the darkness of space, what seemed like directly across from them, a glowing pink light blinked in and out of sight.

"What is that light?!" Venus gasped.

"It's as if it's resonating with the Silver Crystal." Mars said.

"Maybe the future Silver Crystal is resonating with Sailor Moon's Silver Crystal." Mercury theorized.

"Anyway, let's go see what it is." Moon said determined.

"Yeah, there's no point in staying here."

"Let's go."

"Yes!"

The group of Senshi began making their way towards the light with renewed hope while Fighter lagged slightly behind, rubbing the temples of her forehead vigorously. No one turned back to check on her, not even Sailor Moon. However after a few moments, Fighter found it easier to keep a closer proximity to the rest of them. She looked up curiously, as her headache had not diminished any to allow her to do so, and smiled. Sailor Moon's hair had stopped flapping behind her, her breaths became calmer, her steps smaller. She had slowed herself and the group to Fighter's pace.

"Thank you." Fighter whispered not caring who heard. Sailor Moon made no acknowledgement, but she didn't need to. The faint glow on her cheeks was enough for Fighter.

They walked on in silence until the light grew so bright it engulfed most their vision.

"It's just getting bigger and brighter!" Venus shielded her eyes against it.

"Keep going." Mercury stated. "We'll eventually have to pass through!"

"Pass through to what, though?" Asked Jupiter.

Just as she finished saying it, they all heard a high pitched scream.

"T-that was Chibi-Usa!" Sailor Moon cried desperately.

"Run towards it!" Fighter shouted. They all took off at a sprint, racing through the blinding pink light that led them there. The luminescent glow around them faded into a red haze and they stumbled to a halt when a couple silhouettes appeared before them.

"Hold it right there!" Sailor Moon shouted. A woman with snake like green hair on the verge of attacking Chibi-Usa looked up at the Sailor Senshi. "As long as we're here, we won't let you lay a finger on her!"

The woman stood, smirking. "I'm impressed that you made it out of that maze."

"We've got a strong ally called Lady Luck on our side! I'm a Sailor Senshi of love and justice, Sailor Moon! In the name of the moon, I will punish you!"

"Hmph. I'll take care of the Rabbit later. I'll dispose of you guys first! Now, take this!" The woman launched herself into the air. Green waves of light erupted from her hands, shoving the Senshi back with force before suddenly dissipating.  

"What was that?!" Jupiter asked puzzled when there was no visible damage to anyone.

The woman laughed. "I drastically changed the flow of time."

"What did you say?!" Mercury asked shocked. She gave her earring a squeeze summoning her informational visor over her eyes.

"So, what about it?!" Mars scowled. "Burning-"

"Oh, wait!" Mercury exclaimed.

"-Mandala!" Before Mars could even finish her attack, the snake haired woman rose her hand into the air. The fiery attack stopped cold before shooting backwards at its summoner.  Sailor Mars leapt backward dismay. "What's going on here?!"

"She reversed the flow of time." Mercury tried explaining.

Over confident, Jupiter grabbed Venus for a double attack. Both their voices rang out; "Sparkling Wide Pressure!" and "Venus Love-Me Chain!"

"You're wasting your time." Their foe smirked.  The attacks repelled right back at them. Mercury gazed on through her visor in concentration. The rest of the Senshi backed behind her in wait. "I got it!" She said after a moment. "Just now, after she used her power, the distortion in time disappeared for an instant. That's our window of opportunity!"

"And we only get one chance." Venus said.

"An all or nothing bet. Let's try risking it all on a Sailor Planet Attack!" Mars suggested.

"All right, let's do it!" Jupiter was pumped again.

"But-" Sailor Moon lowered her head slightly. "How are we going to make her use her power?"

"I'll do it." Fighter stepped forward. "Prepare whatever attack you plan on using and strike after I distract her."

"Are you feeling up to it though?" Moon asked.

Fighter winked at her. "Don't worry about it. Just get ready." Whipping her head back around she lunged forward. "Star Serious-" The woman rose her hand to deflect, but Fighter rammed into her side. "Hurry!"

"Mars Star Power!"

"Mercury Star Power!"

"Jupiter Star Power!"

"Venus Star Power!"

"Moon Crystal Power!"

Their foe rounded on Star Fighter with her teeth clenched. "-Laser!" Fighter finished, aiming the blast straight for her face.  

"Ryuakusu Power!" She grunted back.

The Sailor Senshi seized their chance. "Sailor Planet Attack!" They shouted. The five Senshi bowed their heads down as they joined hands, light enveloping them. It collected between them, then burst upward from the center. With a great flash, five streams of the colored glow went shooting forward. It hit their target dead center, and her ashes fell to the floor.

"We did it!" They celebrated.

"Chibi-Usa, are you alright?" Fighter turned around to see Tuxedo Kamen crouching over the small girl. The two cats were with him as well. "Everyone, I'm sorry for coming late."

"Now we can go to the future!" Artemis expressed delightfully.

"Is it much further?" Luna asked Chibi-Usa.

She shook her head. "No. It's right up ahead."

"Let's go then!"

The sound of shuffling feet was the only sound to be heard around them. Gradually the red haze that surrounded their vision began to fade. Off in the distance, the shape of a large rectangle began to form, and upon moving closer they saw it was a set of two large double doors. They were two people tall in height, with the phases of the moon on their face and large white pillars on each side.

Chibi-Usa walked up to the doors, reached out her hand, then pulled back in hesitation. The child looked up at the feel of a hand on her shoulder.

"It's alright. We're right here." Sailor Moon smiled. She nodded, then reached out her hand once more. With a great groan, the doors began to swing open. The Sailor Senshi held their breath in anticipation. Fighter stretched out her neck to get a better view. She was finally here, the future. The home of this mysterious little girl, tied to Usagi, who vouched for Usagi and Mamoru together…. 30th Century Tokyo. Blue light gently crept into view and with one final groan, the doors came to a halt.

"No way…" Sailor Moon whispered. "This is… the future?" Darkness. It consumed the Earth. The only visible light was the reflection of the giant moon against the frozen wasteland before them. The city was in ruins, with large craters from what looked like explosions. The Senshi stepped out of the doorway onto an cliff overlooking the city. The door vanished behind them as they stared on in awe.
"This is the future city, Crystal Tokyo?"

"What is this?" They gasped.

"It's almost all frozen."

Venus couldn't fathom it. "How are the people living in the city?"

"Considering the situation, they might not even be alive…" Mercury's voice faded as she said it.

"Mom…" Before they realized it Chibi-Usa took off behind them. "Mom!" She cried.

"Chibi-Usa!" Sailor Moon cried. "Come back, Chibi-Usa!"

"It's dangerous!" Tuxedo Kamen yelled after her. "Don't go out there by yourself!"

"What's with that kid and running off?" Fighter sighed.

"We have to bring her back!" Before the words were even fully out of Venus's mouth, Sailor Moon took off towards the girl leading the rest of them behind her.  

"Chibi-Usa!"

"Chibi-Usa!" They continued to call her name as they ran desperately after her, down the hill and towards the large towers of ice they saw earlier. The air was extremely cold, making it hard to breathe, and batches of fog obscured their vision. Making their way out of the trees, they came to a marble path with broken columns all along it.

Mars halted, looking vigorously from side to side. "Where did she go?"

"What a troublesome child." Sailor Moon lowered her eyes as she gazed down the path ahead of her. She could have sworn she saw something, but it wasn't a child's figure. A second later, something large began moving towards them. "Who's there?!" She called out, catching everyone else's attention.
Mars positioned herself to attack when Tuxedo Kamen grabbed her upper arm. "Wait!" He said, "That's…"
Sailor Moon inhaled sharply as the figure made its way out of the fog. The shape belonged to a man they all knew well already. "Tuxedo Kamen?" She sounded exasperated. Her along with the others turned to look at their own Tuxedo Kamen. "Two Tuxedo Kamen's?"

The second Tuxedo Kamen stopped a fair distance from them. He wore a lavender suit and cape the color of the sunset. White gloves donned his hands as well as a mask on his face, and a white cane rested in his right hand. He smiled.

"I am surprised that you managed to get to Crystal Tokyo of the thirtieth century." His voice was nearly the same, only deeper, more mature, a sign of someone older.

"That voice is…" Moon started saying with a dawning expression about her. "That's right! He's the one who made that ominous prediction!"

"Prediction?" Fighter thought.  

"The one who sent you and Mamoru the visions that caused your break up?" Venus asked. Fighter caught the corner of Sailor Moon's eyes before she turned away and nodded.

"So that's it…" Star Fighter knew something had to of happened in order for Mamoru to leave her. Tuxedo Kamen pushed his way through the crowd.

"Who are you?!" He demanded. Without waiting for a response, he whipped out his cane and rushed at his look-alike. The other Tuxedo Kamen just looked up and smiled, catching the first off guard. Tripping from hesitation, Tuxedo Kamen fell right through his double and plummeted to the hard ground as if passing through a ghost.

"What the hell is going on?!"

"Do not look so surprised." The ghost said. "I am King Endymion. That's right." He continued at Tuxedo Kamen's expression. "I am you in the future."

"What?!"

Fighter cringed, feeling her heart seize at the name. King Endymion. Mamoru's name as Prince of the Earth, except with a new title. So in the far future, the Earth is reigned by the Prince once more.  Fighter didn't even need to guess who his queen was. The future Queen of Earth…. so was that in then? Her destiny? The reason she can't love her as Seiya?

"The future Tuxedo Kamen?"

"Wait a minute!" Sailor Moon protested angrily. "Why did the future Mamo-chan make us dream of obstacles that would come between us?!"

"Wait, Sailor Moon." Mercury gently held her back. "He's not really there!"

"You are correct, Sailor Mercury." King Endymion said. "My actual body is located elsewhere."

"A 3-dimensional image?" Venus questioned.

"The time has come for me to tell you everything." The King said. "Please come with me."

"Wait!" Sailor Moon called when he turned his back to them. "We have to look for Chibi-Usa!"

Sailor Star Fighter put a reassuring hand on Sailor Moon's shoulder. "I'm sure she's alright."

King Endymion turned his head, and looked quizzically at Fighter. "That is correct. Do not worry about her, I am sheltering her." Instead of turning back to lead them on, the King instead faced the Senshi. "I see you are a Sailor Senshi stranger, but I am afraid I do not know how you came to be here. I assume you are vouched for if you are with them however."

"Me?" Fighter asked confused. "Wait- me? You're serious?" She asked doubtfully. "Sailor Star Fighter. Seiya Kou… why are you pretending like you don't know me?"

"I'm sorry, I don't." King Endymion said.

"From the planet Kinmoku." Fighter persisted hostilely. "Fought Galaxia with Sailor Moon. Came back and- Stop messing with me!" Fighter shouted. "That's impossible. This is the future, the 30th century right? You've met me in the past and-"

"I may have simply forgotten. It has been centuries since your time so forgive me in advance. Even now though, we have no records in our database that a planet called Kinmoku even exists."  

"What?" Fighter gasped, taken aback. "But-"

"I'm sorry." The King cut her off. "We must move inside now, we're not safe here and I have much to tell you. We can talk more there. Come." With a final glance back at Fighter, King Endymion faced away and started walking. The Senshi passed Fighter and followed, each staring back in turn as well. Star Fighter lagged behind, her legs heavy as led.

Cold sweat worked its way down her back. They had to be messing with her. This future Mamoru… perhaps it was punishment because he knew exactly why she was here, exactly where she planned to go after this. Maybe this was his revenge, but the Pluto he had met at the gate earlier reacted the same. There was just no way, yet here she was, in the future 30th Century Crystal Tokyo, and she didn't exist to them. It was all wrong. So how?
For the One I Love- Ch.16
Seiya comes back to tell Usagi he loves her but everything falls apart. The only option Seiya can find is to go back in time to prove that destiny isn’t a set thing. But something strange is happening. What are the forbidden era's? And who is this Prince Diamond? Seiya may soon find himself protecting the very thing he tried to change.

From my fanstory, "Sailor Moon 2"
season 3, SM2 S

Unlike Sailor Moon, in my story no one know's the Prince's Earth identity, they call him Chisei, which was his name in the past. It's never really been a problem, but as Tsukimi grows and becomes more of the dating age, she feels she is being left out of that experience, and wants to know who Chisei is so they can be together properly, however Chisei is resistant of this, saying he is serious about her, but they are too young, and he doesn't want to rob her of exploring other relationships and living her life as a normal teenager dating would. This causes a huge rift between the two, especially when Prince Gouire shows up. In the past he turned traitor to the Senshi and was obsessed with Selena without her knowing, in the past they were once good friends and he was possibly the only other man Selena could have ever fallen for. Now of course, after becoming possessive in the past, he is evil, but puts on a show for Tsukimi while mocking Chisei and the Senshi behind their backs that Tsukimi believes in him over them, especially since he has greeted her broken heart over how Chisei has been treating her with warmth and open arms. 

This scene takes place after Tsukimi returns from being kidnapped by Gourie, and learning about his true nature and plans for her. She is so drained of energy she has been asleep the last couple of days, and the Senshi and Chisei regularly come and check on her. The senshi, especially Neo Venus, confronts Chisei and tells him how she see's it, that he didn't pull away for her sake at having a normal life, but that he pulled away because he is scared about getting too serious too young, and not trusting her love in him enough to believe they will grow together, and not apart with time. Wounded, Chisei tries to defend himself when Neo Mars decides to take a less gentle approach with the masked man.

This scene takes place after Tsukimi has been abducted by Prince Gouire. She wakes upon a ship fatigued, and stumbles over to the window where she see's the Earth and Moon below her. As she turns around, Gouire is there watching her. 

Drawn in pen.

With so much time dedicated to school work, my job, and being part of non profit organizations, I barely am on DevintArt anymore. Luckily, I'm at least able to do an art dump after every term with some stuff I did in my art classes, and some doodles I managed to do in between. 

So I am entering the world of Visual Communication and am hoping to get a drawing tablet since I will be using it a lot from now on and don't want to drive to campus every time I have an assignment with one. I know nothing about them so I am hoping to get some recommendations and feedback before I get one. The only thing I have experience with is the insanely larger than computer monitor Wacom tablet we have in design classes. My poor little budget is keeping me no more than $100.00, and anything lower then that, the better. Say $60.00 range. However, I really like the feature with the large tablet that it works as a screen so you can see exactly where your pen is hitting and what you are tracing over if you trace. Not sure if that is an option or not with the smaller models, but I'd love to find something like that in my price range.

Would you be able to link me to any specifics? I've looked through and not really found any obvious ones. I'll have to change some moderating around though, thanks again.

Thank you so much for your answer. :)
Ok, here is the person who is making submissions out of place: zawij.deviantart.com/
If you take a look on the The-Slayers-Club's board, you'll see there are other coments about this issue. I checked his gallery and there are other people complaining about his fake submission on different groups, besides the Slayers one. But this person hiddes the coments. However, If you check any of his pictures (which I cannot deny they're really good), you'll see a large collection of groups where they're submited, even if those pics has nothing to do with them. I gues he does that in order to gain popularity.

I've checked the group and it seems those pics have been deleted or something... I also checked my own favorites gallery since those pictures were from The-Slayers-Group. But this group doesn't appear anymore in the list of submited groups. Perhaps the author just deleted them after he was pointed by several people, including myself. But if eventually I find a new pic submited in the group, I'll let you know ASAP. :)

I'm glad you change the moderating, too.

BTW: full nacked real people photos fit the Slayers group? Just wondering.

If you're referring to the "cosplay" pictures of Lina I saw in the cosplay section, no, those are not allowed. I've been trying to find where to draw the line with certain materials so I can clearly put them in words for the club rules, the problem is a lot of the nudity artwork I find is blurred between lines.
