Synopsis: The first story is set few weeks after the defeat of Wiseman and the Black Moon, when the Sailor Senshi are attacked by a mysterious force sending them hurtling through time and being attacked by animated suits of armour. What is the mystery behind the Orb of Time and what does it have to do with the Black Moon? The second story is set after the end of the fourth series and sees the Senshi traveling around the world to stop the risen FOUR HORSEMEN OF THE APOCALYPSE!!! Old enemies return, and new ones emerge. Related to the first story. The third and final story is a one-shot featuring Sailor Chibimoon, Sailor Saturn and the Amazoness Quartet battling the last surviving Senshi of the Kuiper belt. They also encounter three elemental beings that are also the site's mascots. Together these stories make up the Orb of Time saga.
Synopsis: A long-running series whose first half takes place during and between the five seasons of Sailor Moon, following the anime continuity but drawing heavily from concepts of the manga. Bill then manages to write a chilling series of Ascension fics as Sailor Moon "ascends" to Neo-Queen Serenity and forges Crystal Tokyo. The rest of the series follows Chibiusa, now 16-year-old Usa, as she leads the Asteroid Senshi.
The Sailor Moon Expanded community is the gold standard of a fan-based collective universe: well over a dozen authors have managed to put together a large collection of stories set in modern times, futuristic Crystal Tokyo, and everywhere in between. All based on the simple but surprisingly rare idea of writing stories to complement rather than contradict what is canon. Largely based around original characters and plots, rather than simply piggybacking on the events of the series. Often events and characters in one story will reference those in another, encouraging you to read the entire archive to get the complete picture.
Synopsis: Refugees is more or less an Origin Story detailing the Dark Kingdom Renegades. Much of this story is set in the Dark Kingdom. It describes Calcite's efforts to keep his friends and family, all renegades born without the gene that makes youma Always Chaotic Evil and therefore exterminated on sight, safe, while he simultaneously helps his superiors wage their war against the Sailor Senshi on Earth.
Synopsis: Having survived the destruction of the Dark Kingdom and established themselves on earth while keeping a safe distance from any miniskirt-wearing superpowered teenagers with possible axes to grind, the DKR nonetheless find themselves coerced into helping the Senshi try and save a parallel world where Calcite has become the Overlord, overthrown Queen Beryl, and absorbed Metallia into himself through clever planning and dangerous genre savviness. The other renegades also face off against their dark selves, whom the Overlord made lords of the earth: Titanite, Calcite's little sister and a cheerful anime fangirl, confronts a sadistic, oversexed Enfante Terrible. Pyrite, the socially awkward genius Trekkie, has an opposite who is equal parts Mad Scientist and Mad Doctor. And so on.
Synopsis: Begins with what is possibly the first 'Sailormoon Zodiac' fic on the web. This trilogy takes Sailor Moon to Darker and Edgier after the Nehelennia arc of the Stars Season. The Zodiac Senshi start out attacking the Moon Senshi, both of them have the Black Star Galazy to contend with, and everything goes into a long downward spiral.
Synopsis: A year after the end of Sailor Stars, Mamoru arrives home one day to find the eponymous Four Kings have bodies again. To his dismay, rather than actually learning why they're alive again, all they REALLY want to do is get into the pants of the Sailor Senshi. In fact, they've made a bet that whoever sleeps with their assigned Senshi first will become the main character (this includes Mamoru, as he apparently has yet to get Usagi either). Meanwhile, previously dead villains from all throughout the series are coming back to life and...continue to freeload with Mamoru whether he likes it or not. Hilarity Ensues. The comic starts out mostly gag-based, then Grows the Beard without entirely losing its twisted sense of humor. Still ongoing and only updates sporadically. Note that the comic is PG15+ due to sexual humor and mild nudity.
Synopsis: This site is an archive of several old fanfiction collections that are no longer available and were restored by using the Wayback Machine. It currently contains "The Best Sailor Moon Fanfiction on the Net", which has a wide variety of fics, including many classics from the early days of the fandom, and features a wide variety of characters, pairings, and genres. "The SDKLR" focuses on fics (and art) about the Dark Kingdom, mostly the anime version, so there's a lot of Kunzite/Zoisite. "This' Nothing" is a collection by a single author who also focused on the anime version of the Dark Kingdom. The owner is in the process of archiving more sites, and will be adding more in the future. Please note that some stories here have adult content.
Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.Awakening by Tim Nolan

Synopsis The origins of Sailor V and her first adventures in England. Just all aeound well written and well detailed.
Synopsis Set way back in the Moon Kingdom, this fic actually skirts around the obvious part of the tale — everyone knows just how Serenity and Endymion fell in love and how that ended, but what about the stories around them? How did the senshi come into their powers and how did Metallia come to be within the sun? Contains a few original characters (the majority of whom end up dead rather quickly). Concentrates mainly on Minako to start with, but the others get increasingly larger roles as the story progresses. Senshi/shitennou, and Serenity/Endymion.
Synopsis: The year 2000 has arrived in Tokyo, and the girls are enjoying the long peace that they've earned. Sadly, it's not gonna last much longer. The sudden appearance of Setsuna, stricken with amnesia, is the herald of a chain of events that will pit the girls against the ancient kingdom of Atlantis.
Synopsis: In the alternate timeline presented by The Brooch, the Dark Kingdom came unsealed and conquered Earth fifty years before the Senshi reawakened. In a world where the Generals rule the Earth and Beryl has set her eyes on the rest of the galaxy, Tsukino Usagi and her fellow Senshi awaken to become the last hopes of a near-shattered resistance movement. Features a few original characters, an amnesiac Pluto, a love triangle here and there, and some of the best action scenes in Sailor Moon fandom; Moon Princess Halation as a Wave Motion Gun, anybody?
Synopsis: Crystal Tokyo — the far-future "happy ending" paradise-on-earth ruled by Neo-Queen Serenity and her immortal Senshi — didn't last. Beseiged by a mysterious enemy that had decimated the rest of the world, Crystal Tokyo finally fell in 3478 AD, but only after the Senshi and Serenity died one by one defending it. Seven hundred years later, humanity has clawed itself back up to civilization once more, and the city of Third Tokyo has been built on the ruins of Crystal Tokyo. To Third Tokyo comes a cat named Artemis who is looking for a new generation of Sailor Senshi. The enemy that destroyed the world centuries before was not defeated; it waits, biding its time, until the Senshi return.
Synopsis: The Sailor Senshi were almost shattered when Usagi abandoned them and her destiny, left Japan, and disappeared utterly. Years later, the remaining senshi have managed to hold on and even grow again, making many adjustments, including a new Sailor Moon. The past still hurts, but it's behind them now... Until Ami Mizuno goes to Southern California for a year as an exchange student and meets her campus guide — Amy Anderson, Sailor Mercury of the Sailor Scouts, and her perfect double. And she's not the only familiar face Ami will see unexpectedly.
Synopsis: This story follows an unnamed lone enemy of Serenity as he travels back in time to the start of the TV series to prevent the creation of Crystal Tokyo, a society he regards as a soulless dystopia. The best part? He's nuts. After a thousand years of waging a desperate one-man war on Queen Serenity (and Sailor Mars), he's forgotten his own name.
Synopsis: The Fragility of Time and its sequel Star Dust Memories begins with Chibi-Usa being knocked off course while traveling Back to the Past after the Black Moon Arc. She is knocked off course and the Time Stream disrupted mid Journey, and instead she arrives near the beginning of the Sailor Moon Series causing all sorts of ripples in time. Unfortunately, she's not the only one who was knocked into the past.
Synopsis: When Usagi, Rei, Makoto, Minako and Mamoru are killed by Fiore, Ami has to carry on her duties as a Sailor Soldier — and take care of Chibi-Usa, to boot. Still haunted by the loss of her friends, she finds comfort, and eventually more, in a comrade. When not only a new enemy shows up, but the Sailor Starlights appear on the scene, the situation gets increasingly complicated...
Synopsis: When one detail is altered, history as we knew it can be forever changed. For example, one wonders what might have happened if Luna had found Mamoru before Usagi. Could that incident mean the difference between living and dying?
Sailor Moon Z by Jeff Hosmer and John Biles (Alternate Universe, Multiple Timelines, Multiple Sexuality Syndrome, Alternate Character Interpretations, and most definitely not for anyone under 16). Does not focus on the relationships very much. Part of the Dance of Shiva universe. Fully absorbs Himechan No Ribon into the mythos.

Synopsis: Chase Hunter Carlson is your average Philosophy major until he gets conned into testing out a device that inserts his soul into someone else's body... in another universe.

Synopsis: An anime fan with almost no prior experience with Sailor Moon (the first dozen episodes and knowledge of two jokes about the English dub) goes through the series episode by episode, recapping and reinterpreting it in a manner similar to an Abridged Series in Script Fic format with bonus comic sketches, with references along the way to Darkwing Duck, H.P. Lovecraft, The Order of the Stick, Exalted, and everything in-between. Read, or Mercury will beat you to death with her goddamn princess wand.
Synopsis: "A heartfelt deconstruction of Sailor Moon set in the backdrop of the "Interview" setting, complete with alternative character interpretations, excessive violence, and a vulgar humor clad in black. This will get very ugly, very fast."
Synopsis: It's not easy being Sailor Pluto, and it definitely doesn't get any easier when Setsuna, after being brought back to life at the end of the Stars arc, suffers an emotional breakdown, falls in love with Michiru and begins screwing around with time, leading to several really bizarre consequences such as Haruka and Setsuna repeatedly swapping the Sailor Pluto role between them, with Haruka at one point becoming Setsuna's sister, "Barbara," who is Sailor Charon. And then things get really strange. (Watch for Hotaru as a cigar-smoking ghost who may or may not be dating Jesus. It's that kind of story.)
