RE: The Time Gates,

Not to overrule Rob, but I would like to say that, yes, they did arrive... and once they did The Goddesses locked that shit down faster than flies on stink.

Which would certainly explain why Setsuna would be so out of it, beyond just having all that history updated in her mind...

Thoughts?

Yasuri Nanami is my number one waifu, if only because she would horribly murder all the others if they didn't shut up and toe the line.

Not sure whether to post this here or in the crossovers that should be thread, but:

Team SSKY: Sakura, Shaoran, Kerberos, Yue. Their names are colors too -- pink, plum, black (sounds like kuro or crow) and white (as Tsukishiro). Sky is a color of blue. Fairly sure I'll use the name in this story, but I think it would make a good crossover set in Remnant, too.

No, that's not entirely fair.
Sailor Moon/Serenity is not the Three/Four.  But if you take something mentioned in a Silver Millennium flashback in the original Japanese verbatim, she might be their daughter.

Hmmmmmmmm...

I have yet to show any of the Megami interacting with Usagi in our little story... although, unless she and Mamoru are, er, elsewhere, while the goddesses show up for the Halloween Party, I doubt I can get away with that for much longer.

I drive for Uber/UberEats, unfortunately. And Bristol is a long long ways from San Antonio. Unless Washu-chan wants to set me up with a portal over yonder... :V

Love the idea about Team SSKY. Ruby and company (Teams RWBY and JNPR) will probably want to work with them to get them up to snuff as well as hone their own edge. (Funny thing about being a teacher - sometimes you learn much more than you teach!)

And there won't be much lack for teachers. Tenchi can teach Jyuraian Kenjutsu. Sasami can teach Jyurain long-staff. The elder Takamachis: Ninjitsu and Kodachi. Teletha: tactics and strategy. Mao and the rest of Urzu Squadron: urban combat, small group tactics, and asymmetrical warfare. The Harlaowns and Gil Graham: Midchildan Magic System. The Wolkenritter: Belkan Magic System (and tactical magecraft, too).

And Benjamin? Knowing how to triage and manage "Bad Situations" - particularly emphasis on knowing your limits and when to call for help. (While I've had the help of a lot of people IRL, that wouldn't have happened if I never recognized when I was in over my head.)

Yasuri Nanami is my number one waifu, if only because she would horribly murder all the others if they didn't shut up and toe the line.

Makoto and Mikoto can teach electrical combat. So can the Misaka Sisters, but they're not as good at it. However, they know at least the fundamentals of urban combat and would probably send at least one Sister to the first session that Urzu Squadron teaches on that - then they'd all show up for the subsequent sessions, because memories gained by telepathy are a poor substitute for muscle memory.

Ami would soak up as much magecraft as she could, around her pre-med courses, and would be willing to teach at least basic first aid.

Mii would share her empty-hand martial arts knowledge with the Takamachis (probably something based on Fairbairn and Sykes's Close Quarters Combat System, but Academy City would have developed it along slightly different lines than the Shanghai Municipal Police did in our world), and would pick up what they'd be willing to teach of ninjitsu. And, while Mii doesn't have an offensive esper ability, she would at least know the theoretical basics of combining martial arts and innate powers; she might even be able to teach Ryoko something there.

Rob can teach "Working with Bureaucrats 101" (using the system to your advantage instead of wasting time going around it), and will be quite happy to sit beside Mii as they both learn tactics and strategy from Tessa.

Sasami and Makoto would trade recipes. Smile

Berlldandy makes Apple Pie from scratch, after all

I love the smell of rotaries in the morning. You know one time, I got to work early, before the rush hour. I walked through the empty carpark, I didn't see one bloody Prius or Golf. And that smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole carpark, smelled like.... ....speed.

One day they're going to ban them.

I think that's a meme now. How long has that been a meme?

And if The Three really are Usagi's mother, what should she be learning from them? Other than how to make apple pie from scratch.

Bostwick would slide right in with Uzu squad,and be able to teach how to blend in better to ALL of them.

Really, I would view it more as an 'Adoption By Default' scenario.  Or, at the very least, that she's a descendant of Trinity's Overbeings much like how Sailor Cosmos was supposed to be her own descendant.

(And on that note,  does anyone else see Sailor Cosmos playing a vital role later on down the line?)

It could actually make for a very lovely bit of closure for Usagi's story - that after everything has been said and done, The Three convince her to apprentice under them for a time.  The Sol System can govern itself, and the Jyuraians (along with their getting-along-like-a-house-on-fire allies, the Abh) won't be far away when help is needed.  Mamoru and Chibi-Usa go with her because they can learn a few things as well.

Without Usagi there to pull them all together, the other Senshi will feel free to pursue their own interests, which will free up Ami to be with Rob while they explore the Metacontinuity.

On another front, we really haven't talked much about Doctor Doofenschmirtz's plot - namely, where he finds a bucket of Handwavium from Fenspace that the Goddesses somehow missed (like Andy and his open boxes of antimatter, that) and decides that he will turn the landmark buildings of the world into space ships.

Why?

Because he's somehow twigged to the fact that aliens are real, and he wants to get a jump on things by opening Earth's first used space ship dealership.

And Perry isn't gonna be around to stop him this time.

Of course, this means that in Season 2 we're obligated to have this bit as well:

"Aren't you a little young to be going out into space?"
"Why yes.  Yes we are."

Sailor Cosmos isn't Usagi's descendant per se, she's Usagi's reincarnation.  In the same way that Eriol Hiiragizawa and Fujitaka Kinomoto are the same person as Clow Reed.  At least that's how I interpret it -- it's also possible that she is Usagi herself, or Chibiusa.  But well, the manga had a theme of death and rebirth, and how destruction would always exist when life existed.  It's most poetic when you extend that out in cycles on cycles -- the Silver Millennium to the modern day to Crystal Tokyo to whatever age lies beyond -- an age that Cosmos implies could end if she fails in her own mission.

It's highly unlikely that she's in the Metacontinuity unless she's coming directly from the manga continuity, where um, everyone died.  Well, except Naru and Umino and all the NPCs.  Oh, uh, spoilers.  But on the other hand, anyone that could be a threat to Sailor Cosmos would be a threat to anyone in our setting.  You know, like Azathoth-tier threats.  Might be interesting, but hold on to your SAN points.

And it might set up a Kikyou/Kagome dynamic over Mamo-chan.  I always loved that dynamic in Inuyasha, a tsundere quarreling with a past incarnation/tsundere over the same guy.  Girls, you're the same person, you're jealous over yourself!

On the other hand, finding Kinmokusei should be an early goal for spacefarers if for no other reason than because the planet's name is the best pun ever because delicious sailor traps it would be a good source of allies, and a neat place to write out another culture.

I've only shared this with a couple people before, but this is a little scene I wrote a five years back, set after the end of the Sailor Moon manga.  Sorry in advance for the tears.

I guess everyone took the week off. Just a reminder that we are at T minus 30 days for the release of the Halloween story. I'm trying to knock it into shape but there are still missing parts. If they're with your characters or SI, please add them. I may edit your writing for structural issues, please check the wiki history for changes.

No common room. Just the courtyard. The complex has all the doors to the apartments facing inwards, and a mezzanine providing access to the second-floor apartments. I'll take a pictures when I get back home so you can see.

Could there be a common room in the fictional version?  Doesn't have to be big, just like a foyer with some mailboxes and a few chairs.  I'm thinking of the place that my dad went to when he ran a polling place in the last election.  It's not too uncommon for apartment complices to have areas like that, not bigger than an apartment, that are public.

(And yest I know complices isn't a word, the real plural is complexen.)

Putting in an "enclosed space" would actually take away from this place, not add to it.  The entire setup is open-air.  The only, and absolutely only, enclosed space besides the apartment units themselves is the manager's office in the center of the complex, and that actually was not original.  It was added in provide a larger space than the small office at the end of the far wing.  In the story, I've gone back to the original manager's office and we've turned the added office into the foyer for The Onsen.
