Storyline Name: 
Bleeding Blue (Thanks Miss Pluto)


Creator(s): Sportsnutd and Mercuryfan (so Far).

Forum: Free Form Forum

Advanced or Relaxed: Relaxed

Plot Summary: This is a combo of the early years (90’s anime) and PGSM. Remember when Ami was brainwashed and fought against Sailor Moon and the others for a while till Moon got through to her? Well what if that never happened..and Dark Mercury still existed and even Ami Mizuno still existed. Regular Ami would still be Sailor Mercury and fight for good but at the same time there is a Dark Mercury (Like in PGSM) that fights with Queen Beryl and her minions. Somehow and in someway Queen Beryl has acquired DNA from Ami and figured out how to make a Dark Mercury.

Details on any necessary information: since this is technically a combo of 90's anime and PGSM, it is set in a alternate universe where some things as not as normal or usual. Like for starters, Ami Mizuno was never Brainwashed but There is still A Dark Mercury out there somewhere. The two will not know of the other until they meet at sometime. Usagi, Rei, Makoto of course will fight together like normal with Ami, but when they meet Dark Mercury for the first time, things could get really confusing. Also Minako Will join them later as she will start off as Sailor V then join them officially later. The Inners (Usagi,Ami, Rei,Makoto) will have mostly their 90's attitudes/tendencies but Minako will be like in PGSM until after she joins the group after being Sailor V/fake Princess for a while. If the Generals are played then they will go off of their PGSM selves except this time Zoisite doesn't have to worry about Mamoru remembering that he is Endymion. Dark Mercury WILL Work with Beryl this time around unlike how she didn't really in PGSM.

Restrictions: Otaku’s are allowed as long as the are good. Queen Beryl and Dark Mercury would be the main villains plus maybe some others that might be NPC’D unless someone wants to play them. Also no Shitennou will be played in this but again Unless at least 2 people wish to play as two different characters. (Example: Jadeite and Nephrite) they would work with Beryl and Dark Mercury.


Source:90’s anime and PGSM and fantasy (Otaku's)

YAY! Thank you for the quick response...and I'm thinking we MIGHT be able to start soon but I'm waiting on Miss Pluto for Usagi and possibly one or two of the generals plus a Queen Beryl.

No problem! I like the idea of Minako having more PGSM tendancies. It should be interesting how she interacts with everyone and their anime counterparts. ;]

hey you guys I think we can start this finally. We can go without Beryl for now i guess and maybe say that Dark Mercury is getting orders from a mysterious person or something..or she is just acting on her own at first till Beryl shows up and then they join forces...

if anyone has an idea on this or agrees with me let me know on here please. or on PM

You can always NPC Beryl until someone is able to claim her.

I like the concept behind the story. Sportsnutd, do you think there would be room for my otaku character Jasper as an observer for the Dark Kingdom? The Shitennou could have pushed delegated the responsibility of keeping tabs on Dark Mercury onto him so that their attention can be prioritized elsewhere.
