Prompt: [livejournal.com profile] shitennou_ai Advent Drabblender 10. Moonrise.

Usagi stepped out on the patio, taking a moment to slip away from the tension in the room. The moon was full, hanging low in the sky, and she sighed. She had been so happy, so excited for Mamoru when he had found his Shitennou. He would call home, that first year of college, and even though he never put it in words, Usagi knew he finally felt as if he belonged. He was friendly with the girls, of course - he and Makoto were particularly close - but the Senshi would always be Usagi’s friends first.

The Shitennou had changed that.

She had been so happy to meet them. They were different than she had remembered, but there were glimmers of the men they had been and the relationship they had shared with Endymion. And not all the changes were bad -

"Hiding?"

Usagi turned, train of thought interrupted. Nico sat in a beat up lawn chair off in the corner, smoking a cigarette. Usagi wrinkled her nose slightly at that, and he grinned at her, white teeth gleaming in the dim light. He stubbed out the cigarette. “Maybe, a little,” she confided.

"Well, I haven’t seen any blood yet, so we may all make it out alive," Nico said, giving her a more reassuring smile.

Usagi flopped down into the other chair, pushing her lip out in a slight pout. "I just want everyone to be happy."

Nico gave a low laugh. "You can’t make people be happy, Princess."

Usagi was silent for a moment, scuffing her foot across the concrete floor. "Are you guys made at me?" she asked, voice tiny.

Nico shook his head. "No. And who could stay mad at you, if we were? You meant well," he reassured her. "It might have been better to tell people first, rather than making it a big surprise, but that’s nothing to get angry over."

"I think the girls are mad at me," Usagi mumbled.

"You might be surprised. Lita’s not," Nico commented.

Usagi perked up at that, giving a little clap to her hands. "You talked to her?" she asked.

Nico laughed. "Easy, tiger. Yes, we talked for a moment. I don’t know about any of the other Senshi, but Lita seems fine. She’s a good friend to you," he added after a moment.

Usagi nodded emphatically. "They all are. I just wish they could see-"

"They will," Nico said.

Title: Season's Greetings
Fandom: Sailor Moon
Pairing (if applicable): Mina/Kunzite (Ken)
Rating: PG
Prompt: [livejournal.com profile] shitennou_ai Advent Drabblender 11. Sending Christmas cards.

Mina sat, looking at the four blank cards in front her of her. It would be polite to send them one. Perhaps, she could just send one? She shook her head, setting aside that idea. These men were a part of her life - Serenity’s life - for the foreseeable future. Even if some people thought she shirked her duties, she knew it was important to at least get along with these Shitennou. Now, it seemed part of the Mamoru package deal. Love me, love my rocks.

Mina shook her head again. That sounded wrong, but she had far more important things to worry about. She pulled the blue and white card, decorated with a dragon first. Jed would be the easiest to do. He was quick to smile and quick to crack a joke. He had helped ease the tension in the group more than once with a quip. It was easy to think up a few short sentences, thanking him for his help and wishing him well in the New Year.

She went with Zory next, pulling the red card next, covered in phoenixes and scrolls. She hadn’t spoken much with him, although he seemed to be easy-going. From that first night, he had stuck to Ami like glue. It worried her, even though she had never seen Ami happier. Mina struggled for a moment, before finally finding the words to thank him, although she refrained from wishing him luck in the New Year. Ami was not something to win.

Nico was third, only because he wasn’t Ken. She hadn’t spoken with Nico at all, who seemed to quietly lurk in the shadows when most of the Senshi were around. She had seen him joking with the Shitennou, laughing even with a Senshi for a moment or two, although that never lasted long. It made Mina wonder what he was hiding. It had taken her ages to find a card with a white tiger. She scrawled two quick sentences, repeating the usual polite greetings of the year.

She sat with the last card in front of her a long time, fingers tracing over the black and white ribbons that looked a bit like snakes. Finally, she raised her pen, decisively signing only her name.
