Why This Must Be Read
: Reccing this is like coming out of a fandom closet. Sailor Moon and the senshi/shittenou pairings were my first serious ships AND fandom ever. I love all of them so much and they are like the otps of otps to me. This is definitely one of the lighter and funner fics of them out there as they usually have to do a lot with the Shittenou making amends for their ~dark pasts and betraying their King. But! This is an AU! A wonderful AU that lets you see how they all would interact if they were just normal people with normal problems. What I love most about this is how distinct each character is and how all the relationships are intertwined and built upon. Mina is struggling artist who thanks to her friend Darien (Mamoru's English name) meets Kevin (Kunzite's English name here) and low and behold LOVE OCCURS. Of course things are never that simple when you bring their families, their lifestyles and exes.

VO1's other fic, As We Were, is also a staple in the senshi/shittenou world imho. Fun and bringing in more elements from the show/manga it is definitely worth a read, don't let mean formatting deter you!

* Because of the fact that a lot of these characters have Japanese AND English names I'll ask the mods to tell me which they prefer. I've used the Japanese versions here.
** The gents in this fic and others have American or different Japanes names than used in the tags in most fics where they are included which usually has to do with the ~rebirth they undergo.
*** Also the Minako Aino/Kunzite, Rei Hino/Jedite, Ami Mizuno/Zoicite (not Zoycite, who is more commonly known as the dubbed America female version of the character), Makoto Kino/Nephrite are all usually considered, and clumped together as, the Senshi/Shittenou pairings in their corner of the fandom I think it would be fine when tagging this fic (and maybe future fics) to use senshi/shittenou as a tag for these four pairings. More often than not they are included together anyway. Mod's call, of course.
