Take a basic MagicalGirl template, influenced most of all by ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' (note the title). Infuse the darkness of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', mix in the tone and atmosphere of ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'', and add some of the self-awareness of ''Franchise/{{Scream}}'' on top. What do you get? ''Sailor Nothing'', a WebOriginal written by Creator/{{Twoflower}} (writer of ''Fanfic/SlayersTrilogy'') and a ''very'' scary magical girl story, not unlike ''Manga/ElfenLied''. It also predates some other takes like ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure'' and ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' (but not ''Anime/ShamanicPrincess''), being written in 2000 and 2001.
