“Wow, so pretty! What are these, Mama?”
“They’re pearls, sweetheart.”
“They’re native to Earth. Deep in their blue sea, there is an odd little creature that wraps up its troubles into these lovely pearls. When you were born, the Golden Kingdom sent a chest full of them in your honor. The king himself said they reminded him of the glowing beauty of our moon.”
Serenity looked up at the Earth which seemed to glimmer with a vibrant blue aura, teeming with plants, animals, and people she had never seen before. Growing up, she had been taught that they were to watch over Earth, as it was so different from the rest of the Moon Kingdom. The inhabitants were short-lived and prone to flights of passion. But… Queen Serenity always spoke of it with a tinge of admiration that didn’t escape her daughter’s notice. And she understood why.
She turned the strands of pearls over in her hands. They really did look like the moon. And she was struck with a sudden longing to be able to hold the Earth’s warmth in her arms in the same way. Perhaps, one day, she would.
At the same time on Earth, a young prince with blue eyes stared up at the moon. Wondering about the legendary princess said to look after them.

These are my laser-engraved illustrations done for the Moon Crisis: Sailor Moon Tribute Art Show held at Rothick Art Haus in Anaheim from July 2014 to August 2014. Tomorrow, or today now, August 9th at 6 PM, is the second opening reception, so I thought I’d share these on tumblr. :)

In the original anime, Sailor Moon is the leader; however, in the manga, Sailor Venus is considered the leader (because the job of the sailor guardians is to protect the princess!). It’s already been stated on Sailor Venus’ official character sheet for Sailor Moon: Crystal that she will be the leader. In the manga, Sailor Venus uses the Holy Blade (or Sword of the Silver Crystal) to defeat Beryl. I very much expect this to happen in Sailor Moon: Crystal.
