So enter Minako and her first meeting, of a sort, with Usagi.
There’s a lot to consider here.
In the next episode, the others don’t recognize Minako when she comes to the Shrine. They don’t explain why, but let’s go with magic that clouds their identities, at least until they know the truth, since that’s a pretty easy answer. But how far does that go? Is it working for Minako too? When she goes to the Shrine, does she recognize the others, or is she just using logic/process of elimination? (“I know Rei Hino is Sailor Mars. I know Rei Hino is a miko of this shrine. So the one in the robes with the broom must be Sailor Mars, even if I don’t recognize her.”)
She and Artemis have the advantage of Luna having been reporting to them this whole time, so they must by now know, intellectually, who the Senshi are and their real identities. But is the knowing enough, if its just a name and maybe a photograph or two? Would Minako need to actually have that revealed to her directly for the magic to no longer work?
Basically, as Minako is standing here, watching Usagi cry, does she know who she’s looking at?
Her expression is so hard to read. She’s obviously surprised, but it could be for any one of a dozen different reasons, and they’re all fascinating.
I think that this is the moment the magic lifted for her. Like it takes SOMETHING to break through it. Just the knowledge isn’t enough, it has to come with some sort of MOMENT, some flash of inspiration or acceptance, where it all comes together.
Up to this point, Minako’s been following Usagi. Again, intellectually, she knows that Usagi is Sailor Moon, but she still can’t really see it. Then she sees Usagi’s reaction to Zoicite, and it clicks. And then this rush. Maybe a few scattered memories. Emotions she doesn’t quite understand. Standing there, in the street, watching this girl cry helplessly, and just for that moment, Minako’s completely stunned and overwhelmed by everything. It’s all coming together so fast now.
And not even thinking poorly of how Usagi’s reacting either. It’s so real and so genuine. Minako’s about to get her teammates, potentially friends if she dares allow herself to hope. She’ll remain detached for a long time yet, and it won’t be easy for her. But just for this moment, none of that matters. Usagi’s a crybaby and doesn’t know what to do, and has maybe never needed someone like Minako more. And all of what Minako’s been through now has context. That’s what her face in that second panel says to me. Not shock at Usagi’s reaction. Shock at the realization that she’s going to have people like Usagi at all. Real people with real feelings who aren’t always brave and who don’t have all the answers. Minako doesn’t have to be alone anymore. She sees Usagi now, she’s real, and Minako will never fight alone again.
Vaguely pwp without any real detail because TORNADOES DISTRACTED ME *blames Oklahoma for her inability to write smut ahahahahahah*
But I WROTE A KINDA THING FOR THE FF WEEK SO

P-perfect sexy!fluff I am dead
They’re perfect here so perfect aaahh
Okay so I’ve been shit at Fuu/Ferio week because all my creative energy left me like two weeks ago and I’m not sad or w/e but I’m apathetic about most everything lately so yeah. I owe Fuu and Ferio for slacking off.
For now, have these. I made Fuu and Ferio themed frozen yogurts this week at Sweet Frog. They’re delicious, much like the OTP that inspired them.
I found this, also on my old HD:
«Saved by Ferio!»
«Ferio, the secret of women.»
«Be part of Ferio.»
«Passion for Ferio.»
«It’s time to think about Ferio.»
«Ferio - a safe place in an unsafe world!»
«It’s not a dream. Ferio is real!»
«I’d sleep with Ferio.»
I like these slogans.
This is all it says:
eureka - fuu
renton - zazu
anemone - umi
dominic - ferio
talho - presea
holland - lafarga
gidget - caldina
moondoggie - eagle
sakuya - emeraude
maurice - ascot
maeter - hikaru
linck - mokona
I just don’t know what to make of this. Probably crossplay???
I just want a 10,000+ words fic where Fuu and Ferio cuddle and make out and do the sexings right here. I mean, my birthday is coming up and all…

*leaky balloon noises*
MKR Shipping Month: Fuu/Ferio Week: Day 3: First
Not totally satisfied with this. I wanted to flip the art so it was in its original format (shoulder guards and scars on the wrong side UGH) but the big “BLUSH” wasn’t worth messing with. :( Colors are okay, not great, I know. BUT GOOD ENOUGH. Ugh I’m drowning in otp feels right now do not resuscitate.
Just a reminder that word of god says Fuu is bad at skiing (first manga artbook, artist’s notes)
ugh why is everything little thing about her adorable
I think she’s good at skiing but she’s just a little distracted….
NICK WHY ARE YOU ALWAYS AMAZING
won’t you think about what I’d feel if anything should happen to you
(thanks down for the rough translation)
Aaaah it’s been a while since I watched MKR2 but isn’t this what Fuu says to Ferio when she’s mad at him for “rescuing” her from Fahren? BECAUSE EXCUSE YOU rUDE
Yes. Like, if it’s late at night or something, I make a note on my phone but it was the middle of the day and I was clear-minded and thought, This will easily be committed to memory.
