"I know you'd have told me by now if you were Sailor Moon."
Naru, in Episode 1, two years after Usagi had started being Sailor Moon
A very large epic Fan Fic series by Jeff Hosmer and John Biles (the latter of who brought us Dance Of Shiva, which this series is set in the same universe as), starring the Sailor Moon crew. The story begins in Tokyo, the night before Osaka Naru's sixteenth birthday, with Tsukino Usagi spending the night at Naru's house so that she can prepare for Naru's birthday party. Consumed by guilt because of the page quote, Usagi spills the beans.Of course, this being a Sailor Moon story, not all is well in Japan. The evening after Naru's sixteenth birthday party, the original senshi (plus Naru and Umino) are thrown out of a festival because Usagi managed to mess up some major plan that involved giving the Minister of Education a horary in a specific manner (don't ask, nobody knows why). Running the festival is the mysterious Capricorn, who works for the Zodiac, a remnant of the lost Kingdom of Odysseus.Of course, it wouldn't be Sailor Moon without some legitimate monsters, which the Zodiac does not deal with. Can the Sailor Senshi survive fighting a two-front war? How will things turn out with Naru knowing about the Senshi being her friends? Does the new school that all the girls are going to have anything to do with this? And how is Sailor V over here if Sailor Venus is also over there?The only way to find out is to read it!
This series provides examples of:
Aerith and Bob - Well, one letter out. The elf Derith and his dragon Bob appear in episode 14.
The names in the TORG world run the full gamut, from Maggie and Sakura to Quinina and Dag Nabbit.
Darker and Edgier - The Dark Kingdom are a serious threat this time round. There are deaths, though none of named characters on the "good" side.
Dark Is Not Evil - The original Dark Kingdom, a.k.a. Atlantis and about half of the modern Zodiac.
Door Stopper - The unauthorized .lit file that's floating around weighs in at 3445 pages on the smallest text size setting in Microsoft Reader. Episode 20 alone is 56,000 words long, the length of a short novel.
Reincarnation - Discussed, as are some of the ramifications of not being able to reincarnate in a universe where having more power than a beetle guarantees reincarnation.
Reincarnation Romance - All manner of variations. Characters such as Naru and Umino who didn't have a Silver Millennium counterpart in canon are given one. However, the story shows that just because your past lives were a couple doesn't guarantee being one in the present, and vice versa.
In one of the darkest plotlines of the story, the Dark Kingdom destroy an apartment building with its inhabitants inside. A named (but minor) character, Meiko, loses her family and her home. Apart from one mention of Naru visiting her to see how she is, that's the last we hear of her.
In the Lexx world of episode 24, Spinel escapes when Anthracite kills Magnetite, which seems like it's going to be significant, but she doesn't appear again.
