Fanfic / Queen Of The Moon

Go To

Queen of the Moon by Ryuugi is a Sailor Moon/Overlord (2012) crossover that takes place a little over 100 years into Usagi's millenia long wait to restore her lunar empire. To keep herself amused, she uses the Eternity Main System to connect herself to the popular virtual reality MMORPG, YGGDRASIL. There, she establishes a close knit group of players, spearheads the creation of one of the game's most successful guilds, and has various adventures with all of her newfound friends. Unfortunately, real life has a tendency to get in the way of things, and as more and more of the guildmembers fall away, Usagi finds herself alone on the last day of YGGDRASIL's operation, surrounded by only her loyal NPC's while the game's timer reaches zero.

...and then it keeps going as Usagi finds herself in a world very different from the one she is used to. Surrounded by her loyal subjects, Usagi endeavors to keep all that she has gained safe while still striving to make the world she has found herself in a better one.


Queen of the Moon contains examples of:

  • All-Loving Hero: Usagi, of course. Angel or demon, sinner or saint, she believes that everyone deserves the chance to better themselves and won't turn any away.
  • Adult Fear: Watching your daughter be forcefully taken by a man both physically and politically stronger than you while being absolutely helpless to stop it is something that would rightfully terrify any parent.
  • Animate Dead: While any Necromancer can raise the dead, Brynhildr/Valkyrie's Downfall can call forth an unlimited number of slain of any level with their classes and equipment intact. In YGGDRASIL's previous DLC, she almost used this ability to overrun the Nine Worlds before she was stopped by a group of players who then proceeded to use it to invade Tsuki-No-Miyako and made it all the way to the palace before they were forced to face Usagi backed by The Legions of Hell.

  • Beast of Battle: One of the primary abilities of Babylon the Great is to summon a powerful mount for its user to ride into battle with the strength of the creature dependent upon its riders Karma Meter.
  • But for Me, It Was Tuesday: Usagi nonchalantly fully restores Jin Xinya's cultivation abilities, not knowing that healing such an injury is almost impossible in the new world, and that restoring the power he possessed beforehand was considered a fanciful thought at best.
  • Charm Person: The World Item Brisingamen allows for its user to force a large group of creatures to recognize its wearer as friendly. While its effects aren't as powerful as Downfall of Castle and Country on an individual basis, its ability to influence multiple targets and make otherwise difficult to attain dialogue options easily accessible is what allowed for the creation of the Silver Millenium guild.

  • Comic-Book Time: In-Universe, Last Time, one of the Wayfarers and guardians of the new world, and the rest of her fellow superheroes tend to age in a strange manner due to being stuck in some sort of temporal distortion. She was twenty-six years old when she first met Lin Ming fifty-eight years ago, and she is somehow twenty-three years old in the present day.
  • Chronic Back Stabbing Disorder: While almost all summons in YGGDRASIL are loyal to their summoner by default, demons will often make little effort to distinguish between their summoner and the caster's enemies, and their attacks are even exempt from the games friendly fire system. The demons summoned through the use of Therion Lemegeton are especially duplicitous, and all but one instance of their summoning has immediately resulted in their master's death.
  • Cool Gate: The Silver Millenium used their access to a vast amount of Caloric Stones to create the Gates of the Moon, a series of permanent portals that stretch throughout the Nine Worlds that are only accessible to guild members. These gates gave the guild easy access to vast amounts of some of the game's most valuable resources and contributed greatly to the group's success.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: From the perspective of Zhenkang, Jupiter completely dominated their fight to the point that he was not only unable to harm either of the civilians she was protecting, but was only able to injure her through the use of his Divine Dragon Blood Dive and even that damage amounting to nothing once Usagi rewound time.
  • Defeat Means Playable: Brynhildr, and the World Item she merged herself with, are passed on to their opponent upon their former master's defeat. Usagi claimed ownership of her from the former group of guilds that tried to lay waste to Tsuki-no-Miyako through the use of a variety of World Items.
  • Deity of Human Origin: Usagi is becoming this, assuming you don't qualify her as one already. The resurgent faith that the abandoned peoples of the Nine Worlds place upon her is launching her to godhood at a rapid pace, with Brynhildr stating that she can already see Usagi's domains and portfolios falling into place.
  • Did We Just Have Tea with Cthulhu?: Epimetheus and Usagi regularly engage in friendly discourse on various subjects and even consider each other close friends, to the horror of literally everyone else.
  • Draco Lich: Apophis, a World Enemy and one of the Eight Dragons, is a giant skeletal dragon that can even shed his outer skin to attain his true form as an eldritch serpentine entity with innumerable skeletons composing its shell.
  • Dramatic Irony: Many denizens of Tsuki-No-Miyako are highly suspicous of Epimetheus and Galaxia, unaware that both of them are eternally loyal to Usagi.
  • Eldritch Abomination:
    • The Unnamed Darkness, who Usagi proceeded to name Epimetheus, is a fragment of a much greater being that resides in a reality perpendicular to the Nine Worlds. It is a non-linear existence that has existed before the idea of time and whose power terrifies even the likes of the World Enemies. Naturally, it considers itself and Usagi to be contemporaries and close friends.
    • Usagi herself qualifies. She is a being of unimaginable and otherworldly power who regularly rewrites time and reality to suit her purposes and, like Epimetheus, is an offshoot of an offshoot of an even greater entity, those being Neo Queen Serenity and Sailor Cosmos respectively. Brynhildr considers her to be similar to Epimetheus in nature, and she isn't very far off.
  • Entertainingly Wrong: Epimetheus believes Usagi to be an entity like himself who exists outside of the domain of time and attributes all of her eccentric behavior to her having not yet figured out how linear time works. While it is true that Usagi's nature is not dissimilar to his own, her zaniness is entirely her own.
  • Eviler Than Thou: The Legions of Hell summoned by Therion Lemegeton will only submit to their summoner if they are more evil than themselves. While this would normally be impossible, Usagi of all people manages to pull this off through the use of the Forbidden Fruit.
  • Fantasy Kitchen Sink: The new world that Tsuki-No-Miyako's moon has found itself orbiting is a hodgepodge of different cultures and genres, including Xianxia, Super Heroes, and Science Fiction, to name a few.
  • Garden of Eden: One of Tsuki-No-Miyako's World Items, otherwise referred to as the Flower of Life. The garden has four great rivers that flow from it, is guarded by the angel Uriel, houses all manner of beasts, produces vast quantities of food, and is overseen by Eve.
  • Gods Need Prayer Badly: Some gods, both in YGGDRASIL and the new world, derive strength from the beliefs of their followers. This also allows for the creation of a Deity of Human Origin, as seen when Ragnarok starts and, the gods having largely abandoned them, the people of the Nine worlds find someone else to entrust with their faith.
  • Götterdämmerung: The shutdown of YGGDRASIL not only initiated Usagi's transfer to the new world, but also kicked off The End of the Nine Worlds as We Know It with all the protectors the denizens of YGGDRASIL having grown used to suddenly disappearing and the majority of the gods withdrawing from the Nine Worlds and abandoning the people to their fate.
  • Healing Hands: Usagi primarily played the role of Healer to the rest of her guild and her combination of classes and skills makes her one of the greatest healers in the Nine Worlds with abilities that leave the citizens of the new world mystified.
  • Hope Bringer: Usagi quickly takes up this role to the abandoned peoples of the Nine Worlds once Ragnarok arrives, turning the tides in the fight against the monsters and raising thousands of slain back to life.
  • Infinity +1 Sword: Any one of the World Items qualifies as almost all of them are capable of massively shaping reality in some way and they are tremendously difficult to acquire. Therion Lemegeton, for example, is acquired by completing a special fishing minigame wherein you compete against Thor while trying to catch the Midgard serpent.
  • Karma Meter: A character's karma is typically ranked from -500 to 500 with -500 being the worst of sinners and 500 being a virtuous saint. The Forbidden Fruit World Item allows one to change their karma anywhere from -1000 to 1000. While this isn't a very useful effect on its own, it has surprising synergy with other World Items like Therion Lemegeton and Babylon the Great.
  • The Legions of Hell: Usagi can call upon them through the use of one of her World Items, Therion Lemegeton. They normally suffer from Chronic Backstabbing Disorder, and will immediately kill their summoner upon their appearance, but this can be averted through the use of the Forbidden Fruit.
  • Make a Wish: There are three known methods to having one's wishes granted in YGGDRASIL.
    • Ouroboros, one of the Twenty, is able to rewrite reality however the user sees fit. The Silver Millennium previously used this item to take control of a Celestial Uranium mine from an opposing guild, Ainz Ooal Gown, in order to gain unlimited access to the Caloric Stone, essentially trading in one extremely strong wish to gain access to a vast amount of slightly weaker wishes.
    • The Caloric/Wishing Stone is, though not one of the Twenty, a single use World Item that allows its user to request custom built items from the game developers. The new items are almost guaranteed to be leagues better at their purpose than anything else in the game and the Silver Millennium's ownership of said items, such as the Genesis Forges, the Astrologer's Observatory, and the Gates of the Moon established them as one of the game's greatest guilds.
    • Wish Upon a Star, one of the most powerful spells in YGGDRASIL, freely grants the caster's wish so long it is within certain limitations, and those limitations can be somewhat mitigated should one cast a Greater Wish. While the wishes used to be random, the transition to the new world has changed the nature of the spell to be entirely according to the user's intent, something Usagi deems to be far too useful not to use, even if it does require that she Cast from Experience Points.
  • Mass Resurrection: Kingdom Come, the most powerful of all resurrection spells in terms of both range and effect, is used by Usagi to revive hundreds of slain soldiers that had fallen in battle to then be led to Tsuki-No-Miyako and safety.
  • Mind Control: The Downfall of Castle and Country World Item allows its user to completely dominate the will of one target, even if said target would typically be immune to such things.
  • Outside-Context Problem: These are actually the norm for the new world that the denizens of Tsuki-No-Miyako have found themselves in. The planet their moon is orbiting tends to become home to another group of strange individuals every few decades, ranging from superheroes, to Xianxian cultivators, to Sci-Fi mecha pilots with the Silver Millennium being the latest travelers to this new world.
  • Papa Wolf: While Jin Xinya's cultivation may have been crippled, he still fully intended to sacrifice himself against Zhenkang's clan after their heir's defeat in order to pacify them and ensure his daughter's safety. Once Usagi restores his abilities and strength, however, such a thing became unnecessary.
  • Retcon: In-Universe. Upon their transfer to the new world all fanciful backstories and formerly random character actions have become real and have led to some unforeseen consequences.
    • Usagi created several NPC's as her children and modeled them after her friends, primarily the other Sailor Scouts and Mamoru. Unfortunately, their backstories each list them as having one of their Greek counterparts as a parent, leading everyone to believe that she Really Gets Around.
    • One of Galileo's abilities as a high level Astronomer is to be able to cast Wish Upon a Star freely once per month. He once cast the spell on Valentine's Day and, due to the previously randomized nature of the spell, summoned forth Cupid to shower the guild with presents and visit the Queen. While this was merely something Usagi considered amusing when it happened in-game, a lot of the Nobility are still put out with him due to the nature of Wish Upon a Star changing from randomized to intent based as they saw it as him intentionally redecorating the entire city without permission and sending an enchanting angel of love to serenade the queen.
    • Galaxia's backstory places her as a child of Usagi and Chaos. While this wasn't previously an issue, the rest of the city is now very untrusting of her following the transition as most see her as some form of Trojan Horse.
  • Reality Ensues:
    • When Tsuki-No-Miyako became real, so did its politics. The outer layers being built solely with the idea of defensive utility in mind so as to protect the wealth of the inner layers from invasion has led to a monetary disparity existing between the two groups. This schism has led to the formation of the Inner and Outer factions, with the two groups of senshi and their subordinates opposing each other in matters of politics, their only unifying factors being their adoration of Usagi and their distaste of Galaxia.
    • YGGDRASIL is an ideal setting for players as it offers a continuous source of monsters to slay, materials to search for, and quests to uptake. However, once the world becomes real and loses the vast majority of its defenders, the remaining kingdoms fall into chaos as the various World Enemies take advantage of the sudden power vacuum to each try to claim the Nine Worlds for their own.
  • Servile Snarker: While Brynhildr is entirely loyal to Usagi, she still views her as a complete and utter moron prone to literally insane behavior who holds the fate of the Nine Worlds in her hands.
    The Queen blinked her little doe eyes, the logical question resounding in the cavern she called a head until it hit upon a stray brain cell. That brain cell was also stupid, and thus failed both its job and arguably the universe at large.
  • Story-Breaker Power: We see first hand the power of one of The Twenty, Five Element Overcoming, as it changes the fundamental rules of magic to conform to its user's wish. Usagi uses it to give all the inhabitants of her city the ability to Level Up, use any Scroll, cultivate, and a number of other blessings that should be entirely impossible to the former denizens of YGGDRASIL.
  • Tranquil Fury: Jin Xinya was absolutely infuriated by Zhenkang's attempted kidnapping of his daughter, but he still remained calm and collected throughout the exchange, even when the tables have turned and he has Zhenkang at his tender mercies.
  • Undying Loyalty: Every inhabitant of Tsuki-No-Miyako towards Usagi.
  • Wishing for More Wishes: The basic idea behind much of the Silver Millenium's success. They used Ouroboros, one of the twenty strongest single-use World Items in the game, to gain a monopoly on the Celestial Uranium mines. This gave them nearly unlimited access to the Caloric/Wishing Stone World Item. They then used their vast quantities of Caloric Stones to create the Gates of the Moon, the Inner Shops, and the Genesis Forge. This in turn gave the Silver Millennium access to some of YGGDRASIL's most valuable materials and the ability to enhance said materials further to the point that Tsuki-No-Miyako was leagues ahead of almost every other guild base in terms of both the quality and quantity of their endgame equipment.
  • World's Best Warrior: The Crown Princess Galaxia. Not only is she the strongest fighter in all of Tsuki-No-Miyako, she is so far ahead of all of her sisters that she can take on three at once with very little effort.
