three sailor moon recs!

Fandom Category: Sailor Moon
Pairing: Usagi Tuskino/Mamoru Chiba
Fic Title: Untitled Series
Author: fated_addiction
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: AU, superhero, drama, romance

Why This Must Be Read: Right, so fated_addiction just writes phenomenal fic in general and especially for Usagi/Mamoru, but this is is just out of this world. She builds an AU within the canon that exists in the manga and manages to pull out some of the most amazing Usagi characterisation ever. It's a bit of a What If verse and Usagi starts on the journey to becoming Sailor Moon a bit differently with the players switched around some, but even with all these changes one thing remains: she's the glue and that's so true for the fic too. Usagi binds this fic together and her relationship with Mamoru during this journey of self discovery highlights ever.

But really, just read all of fated_addiction's Usagi/Mamoru fic if you get a chance.

Why This Must Be Read: So it's obvious I really like AUs. And if it wasn't I REALLY LIKE THEM, sorry! tosca1390 also has really excellent fic for these two too, but I love AUs! This AU is currently two fics, which is why I'm reccing both at once and this is a great one because I'm not honestly a big Sailor Moon fic reader for Usagi/Mamoru but I saw this one and it's so perfect. Political AUs for this narrative should happen more often because it lends itself so well to what already exists for the characters. Usagi is unchanged here, just older, but still on a mission to do good and make a change. Mamoru is still on the path to be a doctor and thanks to these paths and their friends their paths cross and it's the loveliest. Their relationship here is so supportive and it just flows. Also I love the roles the other senshi play in this AU and how the Dark Kingdom is introduced. Perfection!
