Other stories send the scouts on new adventures or make slight tweaks to canon to find out what happens as a result. The world of Sailor Moon fanfiction offers something fun for every fan, no matter what their tastes might be.

    Sailor Moon 4200

    by Angus MacSpon

    In the year 3478, the world ended.

    The true nature of the destroyer was never discovered. It could control virtually any mechanical object. It turned millions of people all over the world into an army of mindless crystalline monsters. Most of the world was laid waste within a week.

    Crystal Tokyo, defended by the Sailor Senshi and their Queen, held out for two months. Later, people would tell stories of that last, desperate defence: of the strength, skill and bravery of the Senshi in their final hour. But one by one, the Senshi fell. And at the last, Queen Serenity stood alone ... and was no more.

    In the year 4200, a new world will be born…

    A new world. A new age. The city of Third Tokyo has risen from the ashes. And a cat named Artemis leads a long, lonely search for the next generation of Sailor Senshi. A search that is about to bear fruit.

    Some of the new Senshi will be old faces, reborn yet again. Some of them will be new. But one thing is certain: the ancient menace that destroyed Crystal Tokyo has never been defeated. And it is waiting for them.

    The adventure is about to begin…

    Innocence in A Minor

    by LeVar Bouyer

    The world was ending all around Princess Serenity, and she didn't care. What she cared about was that her friends had been killed, as had Tuxedo Kamen. As if that weren't enough to ruin one's day, Queen Beryl merged with Metallia, and was now threatening to take over Tokyo, and eventually the world. Everything else seemed to be, at this stage at least, completely and totally irrelevant.

    What if Usagi's average test score wasn't 30? What if she could legitimately say "I'm blonde, not dumb!" and what if... well, enough with the speculation and on with the show!

    growing up we watched the stars

    by Shayna_Nak

    Usagi isn't all that smart, and isn't looking forward to that good of a future, probably, so excuse her if she has some trouble believing she's supposed to save the world.
