Easily the ''worst'' thing about ''Sailor Moon V'' is the story's name, which not only breaks a cardinal rule (in some purists' minds) of ''SailorMoon'' fanfic by using the dub name for the Senshi (as does the rest of the story), but also conjures up images of poorly-written lemons and darkfics. Admittedly there ''is'' sexual content and the story ''is'' darker and much more serious than the anime is, but the story never even nears the hopeless lows for which other fanfics are famous. And far from being a poorly-written lemon, ''Sailor Moon V'' ranks among the finest fics in the Sailor Moon fandom, and certainly the largest.

* SongFic: Sort of. Mina and Artemis perform a duet of ''{{Phantom of the Opera}}'' for the others during a sleepover. Songs used to set the tone for a chapter are entirely absent, but this troper doesn't know if we have a trope for characters bursting into song in-universe.

* MidSeasonUpgrade: A non-mecha example that doesn't quite fit ShonenUpgrade. Luna and Artemis gain some extra energy and offer to use it to give the girls a choice of new spells or new uses for their old spells shortly before a trip into the Dark Kingdom. The girls wind up choosing the second option, and get the rarely-seen "filler attacks" from the R season's Doom Tree arc, i.e. Venus's Crescent Beam Shower, Jupiter's Supreme Thunder Dragon, etc.

** Averted again with [[spoiler: Leda. She doubles as BiTheWay at least a little, having had a fling with a girl after it turned out that SexEqualsLove was averted ''hard'' with her boyfriend.]]

* AManIsNotAVirgin: Averted. Tolaris ''is'' still a virgin after 732 years.
** Averted again with [[spoiler: Leda. She doubles as BiTheWay at least a little, having had a fling with a girl after it turned out that SexEqualsLove was averted ''hard'' with her boyfriend.]]



* BiTheWay: [[spoiler: Leda and Mina are the two most boy-crazy inners, and are also in a physical relationship with each other in early chapters.]]



* CombatPragmatist: Played with. In the Negaverse, you only use a real weapon if you intend to kill, and kill immediately, so drawing one means that you are supposed to act like this.



* FaceDeathWithDignity: When his relationship with Ami is discovered, Tolaris does this, appearing before Beryl and pleading guilty to her charges of treason. [[spoiler: Subverted in that he had a plan, and [[FateWorseThanDeath didnít actually die]], but he still had a way around his punishment.]]



* HealingFactor: Ami gets one [[spoiler: after turning into a vampire.]]



* LethalChef: Ledaís sheer ''DEFIANCE'' of this impressed Tolaris, when she [[MundaneMadeAwesome cooks eggs]] with an acidic yoke and doesnít break the yokes, which would melt the skillet and spatula. And she didnít know they were acidic at the time, so she didnít handle them with special careójust the attention she usually pays to ingredients when cooking.



* MythologyGag: Mina wrote and plays the SailorMoon theme song for Serena in-universe.



* OhCrap: A number of them at various times, but thereís a funny one when a scout identifies Darien and Serena while asleep. Almost doubles as a MookHorrorShow.
** Also when they almost get caught in [[spoiler: an avalanche in the Negaverse]].



* [[spoiler: RapeAsDrama: Chad to Rei. Played with; itís left a little uncertain. She likes pain, and enjoyed the beating enough that she says she wanted it, and did care about him on some level. Ultimately she decides it was consensual, and plans for it happening again at a later date.]]
* RetiredBadass: Implied with Minaís grandmother, who apparently hunted vampires.
* RomanticRunnerUp: Rei for Darien. Even Serena knows it, and feels sorry for her.
* ShipSinking: [[spoiler: Luna and Artemis]] may have or have had something casual, but Chapter 4ís reveal that [[spoiler: Luna has also had sex with Hercules]] implies that they arenít serious or exclusive.
** [[spoiler: Reiís hooking up with Chad]] also kills the possibility of an OT3.

On the surface it may sound like a fairly typical divergence fic, but the story's greatest quality lies in the depth of the plot and the massive amounts of world-building the author put into his universe. Far from being the Dark Realm of Evilness(TM) that it was in both the manga and the anime, Stanton's version of the Negaverse is an entire planet in its' own right, richly detailed in culture, history, and geography, and the denizens are, if anything, even more memorable than the world itself is. No longer is the war between Earth and the Negaverse a conflict of black and white; there are as many heroes in the Dark Kingdom as there are on Earth. Sympathetic characters are everywhere, even in the highest echelons of the Dark Kingdom's military forces.

** Venus hysterically points out a bird native to the Negaverse that is almost identical to a [[FinalFantasy Chocobo]].
** Nop'tera's fleet is named after the Red Wings of {{Final Fantasy IV}} fame. Ditto for the Dragoons.
