Pairing: Usagi Tsukino/Mamoru Chiba
Fic Title: Less Than Perfect
Why This Must Be Read: I saw that someone wanted SM recs for Usagi/Mamoru, so I figured I'd put up my favorite. This one is a 58,000 word story, so nice and long. Basically, Usagi is growing up, and her friends are not keeping up with the changes. They still see her as that clumsy, scatterbrained little girl. She is remembering herself and has to decide who to trust with her secret. What is Mamoru's test? How do the Senshi earn her trust back? I would recommend this for its unique look on the relationships between past and present, between who they were and who they are.
