Winner: Most Recommended Story - June 2005
Season: Alternate Universe
Genre: Action, Angst, Drama, Suspense
Post-apocalyptic Tokyo. The year is 1992. The Dark Kingdom has revived 50 years before the birth of Sailor Moon and easily conquered the Earth. The city of Tokyo was hit the hardest out of the entire Earth, being Ground Zero for the Dark Kingdom's invasion.
Tsukino Usagi is one of the refugees living in the Hikawa Jinja proper. Her entire family was completely wiped out right in front of her eyes by a group of Youma sentries during their flight to the shrine. If not for being saved by Chiba Mamoru, a member of the Earth's special defense forces - Shishu - she would've died, too.
When Luna and Artemis find her, they explain to Usagi that she is the one that they were searching for, the one that would wield the power to take back the Earth from the Dark Kingdom. Usagi quickly refuses, saying that she cannot fight the Dark Kingdom. She had to remain alive; it was her father's dying wish. She couldn't risk her life to fight.
But, whether she wants to or not, the power of Sailor Moon is a part of her. She will become Sailor Moon... even if she, herself, doesn't even know about it....

As always, an incredible chapter. The twist at the end there was a good one and I'll be looking forward to the next installment with enthusiasm - well done Jase!
Wow! I am soo happy to see Mercury rising from her post-shock. Thank you for updating, can't wait to see more.
I loved this story. I hope you continue to write it, because I can tell the finished product would be amazing. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time--great work!

Oh poor Michiru, will she have something happen that will heal her? Artemis, poor fur ball, when he jumped off the bed and felt the discomfort I felt for him, poor lil guy!
Oh and Ryoko, he can't go like that!!! I love the idea of flying youma, a dilemma for Sailor Moon with them looking humanoid!! Great work, please don't keep me waiti'n! ^^

After reading all the current portions of the story and catching up, I am keen to see the next installment, I thought this latest chapter was incredible. The action, the angst, the humanity in the face of such dire times amazing.
The Senshi, the Blades, even the youma and the civil war is all the good stuff that make an epic what it is, Sailor Moon Classic Magic!
Well done Jase!

Hey, I think this is the kind of story fanfiction of Sailor Moon thrives on, I hope you add more chapters soon
Oh wow what a chapter. Please more.
First I must say, how could you leave it there??
I love love love this story, I really feel that this is my all time favorite, and I'm really happy that you're still going strong with this story. I can't wait to read the next installment, just please don't leave it with such a cliffhanger!! :)
Woot!I am glad to see you pick up this story from where it left off. A couple of mismatched names but the chapter is very good.
Very nice to see the comparison and contrast between the senshi and the generals of how they either work together or alone. Very good, can't wait for more!

Woo! Awesome new chapter. I enjoyed it and can't wait for more. Keep it up. =]
WOOT, YAY! I am sorry you had to get a new laptop but I am sooo very happy you got this story going again this is becomming one of my favorites!
I am very, very happy you had updated these 3 chapters! I hope Serenity does recognize the senshi without the glamor if she can. I also hope that Serenity can cleanse the humans that became Zoi's youma because Usagi always rather cleanse the evil than kill. I wonder if she does have to do it how will that effect her with the broach? In chapter 18 was mentioned about Mirichu having children but in a way doesn't being a senshi kind of cleanse all physical things done and can she in the end have a child even though she was considered hollow?
Mamoru & Ryo have a lot to take on their shoulders but it is great to see them in leadership or co-leadership roles. Haruka was a reluctant soilder so it is good to see her now running away but actually taking more of a stance.
I wonder if chibi-moon will make an appearance as well? Food for thought. Good Job on the story overall.

you are doing such a wonderful job on your story. please dont take too long posting the next chapter.
Woot! Yay! I am sooo very happy you updated. I can't wait to see more chapters. A song that I thought of was Angels by Within Temptation is a really nice to go with this.

LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait for the next update....hope it doesn't take so long as this one.
Too short a chapter. I reread the story to make sure I was on the same page. It seems Usagi is more happier when she is out of range of the broach. I wonder what feelings it will transmit to Makoto if she was in range of it? Interesting...I wonder if guilt would transmit for Makoto because she lived in a deep stasis while everyone else died? I wonder what would happen if that demoness revealed herself to the senshi thinking she can take them down? Would Rei's powers activate or because you would need a pure unselfish need to activate that power? Mamoru should feel something I know he is the one that is always brainwashed or has memories erased it would be good to see him a little more than just a solder boy though. lol Just grasping straws.
It was worth the wait....but will Makoto start training female blades so that they can defend themselves? I hope so maybe that can be a distration from dealing with her changes. Hopefully, the other girls will start getting their memories back. Thanks!
Great chapter!! I truly love this story; please update as soon as possible!!!

This is sent as a private review to avoid sending out spoilers to the readers.
I like the way you contiue to portray each character in minute detail and take the time to explore emotions for each one. I'm looking forward to finding our what's on Haruka's mind as well and having her and Michiru discover their sailor identities.
In all the chapters, I feel as if Mammoru is the one character you haven't focused on extensively. Aside from his undying devotion to the Blades, he still seems like a mystery from an emotional point of view. However, I'm sure he will be more prominent in future chapters.
Oh such a wonderful chapter!! I swear no matter how long they are, I read through them so fast. I could scream too you know, but I am just so glad that events are moving on. I still love how well you describe everything, I can easily visualize it in my mind. That's great props to you as an author to have the ability to do that. Again please continue the great work, and I will continue to read the great chapters.

WISE: a masterstroke of storytelling genius in the magical world of SM.
I only noticed a few minor flaws, x Colloquialisms such as, _off of_ are a little out of sorts in the third person, though in dialogue and with an in character speaker these are fine, just something to look at. Try and avoid using multiple punctuation such as the (?! or !!!) etc, fine for text messaging, emails and forum posts and the like, but these are grammatically incorrect and have no place in quality writing. But all in all, this is a fantastic story. ^_^
I have enjoyed reading these last five chapters and admire the research and depth you have obviously brought to the narrative. World building is first rate, imagery woven together into a structural tapestry that speaks volumes of how good a storyteller you are.
Characterisation of Usagi/Serenity -- pure magic -- well executed. The cats too, and for that matter all your characters are truly potent and feel so real.
Dialogue is good and you bring to the reader the right mix of action and affect, and this and much more drives this remarkable epic.
The over-all scope of this work keeps me on the edge of my seat. I salute your efforts with this story. The detail and humor, and the movement over a range of differing emotional landscapes is truly amazing, just a little polishing here and there and it will shine even more. Great job. I look forward to continuing to follow this incredible classic! *hands you a crystal sword and bows* L.
