rosa isn't here right now

Sailor Moon, 7 recs, Aino Minako/Kunzite (Venus/Kunzite)

Sailor Moon Crystal coming out gave me the push to read the manga properly, and I promptly fell head over heels for Kunzite/Minako. I'm always looking for more fic, but in the meantime, here are some of my favourites I've read so far.

Fandom Category: Sailor Moon (Manga)
Pairing: Aino Minako/Kunzite, with Usagi/Mamoru and Senshi/Shittenou
Fic Title: i'll tell you my sins (and you can sharpen your knife)
Author: winterbones (llavelan)
Rating/Warning(s): Explicit (sex, some violence)
WIP?: Complete at 30K words.
Recced By: rosaxx50

Why This Must Be Read: I think I should write a book. How Minako Got Her Groove Back.

If I could include a flashing gif that says THE BEST, I absolutely would. This is a reincarnation story, where the Shittenou have returned to life, and Minako is... not actually dealing with it well at all. This is funny, warm, and heart-wrenching in turns, and the sex is scorching hot. The absolute best thing though? Minako's characterisation, in all its glorious complexity as goddess of love, leader, young, exuberant woman, is captured perfectly. The other Senshi, inner and outer, also make appearances, which are delightful and thoughtful, without detracting from the focus of the story.
