and so our story begins
I have been threatening forever to edjumicate you heathens on the Sailor Moon saga. So our story begins —
And just for Stil, the origin explained [you crack me up] :
Okay, for you Stil. In the beginning, a beautiful queen lived on the moon with her beautiful daughter and her court and ruled the galaxy with kindness and life in the moon court was good. And the queen’s name was Serenity. And her daughter’s name was Serena. And there were princesses from other planets as well. Like Jupiter. And Mercury. And Venus. But then —
A long exiled dark force returned. Queen Beryl. Who had harnessed powers of darkness and ruled through fear and cruelty and drained the life forces of others to fuel her own power. She had been sent to another dimension, a dark dimension. But she gathered force there and broke back through.
There was a terrible battle. And the queen of the moon was losing. Her last defense was the imperial crystal in her sceptre, which held immense power. And with that power, she forced the dark queen back into the dark dimension —
But she was weak. Her power was diminished, and the imperial crystal all but drained, and she knew Beryl would return. So with her last strength, she sent the children of the moon, the moon court, and her daughter forward in time to be reborn. Hoping that, in the future, they would find safety and sustenance and be able to gather strength and knowledge in order to face Queen Beryl on her return.
That last effort shattered the imperial crystal, and it went forward in time too, lost in pieces on the planet Earth where the children of the mooon would be reborn.
It must be gathered back together, and the children of the moon must remember who they are, because Queen Beryl is about to return.
