Title: You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch
Fandom: Sailor Moon
Pairing (if applicable): Minako/Kunzite (Ken)
Rating: PG
Prompt: [livejournal.com profile] shitennou_ai Advent Drabblender 16. The Grinch.

"Please?"

"No."

"Come on, it will be cute!"

"No, Mina."

"Pleeeease?"

"Mina, I’m not wearing that sweater."

Mina huffed, sending her bangs flying upward for a moment and Ken grinned. "But it’s Christmas! And American - you’re American! Don’t be a Grinch. You’re supposed to wear sweaters with flashing lights and sequins and pompoms," she reasoned. "Plus, I’m wearing one!"

Ken took a moment to appreciate how she had squeezed herself in a child-sized sweater, knowing full well that Jed would make a crack about the snowflakes on it as soon as they showed up at the party. "Mina, I’m not wearing that. You might as well chop of my balls and hand them to Jed."

Mina giggled for a moment, looking at the very tacky sweater she had in hand. "What’ll it take to get you in it?" she asked, raising an eyebrow, all childish pleading gone.

Title: Home Alone
Fandom: Sailor Moon
Pairing (if applicable): Usagi/Mamoru
Rating: PG
Prompt: [livejournal.com profile] shitennou_ai Advent Drabblender 17. Home Alone.

A/N: I thought I’d get to this in some other drabble, but I guess not. So, teenage Chibiusa goes by the nickname Suki. What sixteen year old really wants to be known as the miniature version of their mother, anyway?

***

They had left her back at the house, even though she was sixteen, as if she had never fought a youma before. Suki had pouted for a few moments, turning aimlessly in the unfamiliar living room and wondering if she could figure out how to work the television. While she was fluent in English, technology terms had changed significantly in the intervening years. She could order a Starbucks coffee flawlessly - some things never changed - but antique technology evaded her.

America looked like it was going to be harder than she anticipated.

Suki threw the remote back down on the table before going over the fridge to rummage. Beer and beer appeared to be her choices, with a bottle of vodka the lone occupant of the freezer. She made a face, shutting the door with another pout.

The Shitennou - so much younger than she had expected - had basically jumped out of their skin at her existence, and there was an undercurrent of tension with the Senshi she hadn’t anticipated. Usagi had whispered to her that they’d been introduced not long before, and that had made a few comments from when she was young come into clarity. Still, these men seemed nothing like her uncles, far more detached from their future selves than the Senshi had been, even Usagi.

Suki wandered back out of the kitchen, eyeing the hallway leading back to the bedrooms and then the clock on the television. Surely she had time for just a peek.

Title: Home Alone
Fandom: Sailor Moon
Pairing (if applicable): Ami/Zoicite (Zory)
Rating: PG
Prompt: [livejournal.com profile] shitennou_ai Advent Drabblender 18. Favorite ornaments.

"Why do you have a pickle on your tree?"

Zory came into the living room from the kitchen, holding a beer and a drink for Ami. "Come again?"

Ami reached out to delicately pluck the pickle ornament from the tree, holding it as if it were an interesting specimen. "A pickle?"

Zory grinned, handing her the drink and taking care to tuck the pickle back into its hiding spot on the tree, barely visible among the lights. "It’s allegedly German, but it’s really something Americans do to pretend they’re more German than they are. My grandma started it,"he explained. "You hide the pickle on the tree, and whoever finds it first on Christmas day has good luck throughout the year. When we were little kids, it meant we got an extra present from Santa."

Ami smiled, taking a seat on the couch. "That’s sweet."

"It’s only sweet until you see Jed and Ken fighting for the pickle Christmas morning," Zory replied, conveniently forgetting that it was often a three-for-all. "They’re not even German," he grumbled.

Ami laughed and Zory took a seat next to her on the couch, feeling as if he already had enough luck for the coming year.

Title: Incentives
Fandom: Sailor Moon
Pairing (if applicable): Minako/Kunzite (Ken)
Rating: PG-13
Prompt: [livejournal.com profile] shitennou_ai Advent Drabblender 19. Lingerie.

She had gotten him into that sweater, but it had been a close call. Cajoling hadn’t worked, and neither did her usual tricks, leading Mina to bring out the big guns - lingerie.

Ken had stubbornly dug in his heels on the sweater, until she had whispered just a few key words in his ear about what she planned on wearing underneath her own sweater. She had barely finished speaking before he was quickly pulling it on, hair crackling and standing upright with all the static. Mina grinned, resisting the urge to fist pump in celebration of her victory.

True to Ken’s grumbled predictions, Jed had given him shit for the sweater all night, but Ken seemed to forget all of that once Mina took off her sweater.
