Storyline Name: Rift
Creator(s): Sailor Mercury and Sailor Saturn (inspired by Phantoms)
Forum: Free Form
Advanced or Relaxed: Advanced
Plot Summary: In this universe, the solar senshi we all know and love don't exist. The world has never heard of the Moon Kingdom and its famous Silver Crystal.

The reigning kingdom is now located upon a planet called Nemesis. Instead of a Moon Princess, this kingdom is ruled by Princess Esmeraude and her Malefic Black Crystal, a mysterious artifact with powerful magic. She is backed by her own senshi who keep her protected against any outside threats, stopping at nothing to keep enemies at bay.

When Princess Esmeraude is brought into an arranged marriage with a neighboring Prince Demande, the prince brings along his own entourage.

The resulting clash of these two peoples is only amplified by underhanded manipulations by the mystifying Death Phantom.

But perhaps amongst the darkness, a kind of light can be found.

Details on any necessary information:
Essentially this is a storyline with a general Silver Millennium feel and theme, but is played within the Black Moon Clan family instead. It will focus primarily on Koan and Rubeus, but could include smaller plots with the NPC characters along the way.

The Ayakashi Sisters are Princess Esmeraude's senshi. This information is kept relatively quiet amongst the kingdoms, to offer higher protection to the Princess. Their senshi powers are based around the powers they have as villains.

In this RP, Rubeus is a female character, but retains the same personality, ambitions, and past history as the original.

Restrictions: This is a 1 x 1 RP between Sailors Mercury and Saturn. Any background characters will be NPC'd.

It would be good to get off this ship. Rubea had long lost count of how long she'd been cooped up on the Prince's personal traveling ship, but it was far too long in her opinion. She was beginning to feel that itching feeling of claustrophobia.

If anyone were to tell her that it only been a few hours at best, they'd find themselves at the bad end of a threat. The addition of a dagger or two would highly depend on just how bad of a mood Rubea was in that day.

As it was, she was mostly just bored. She hated being cooped up like this. And most of the staff here were dull and far too accommodating.

Standing in the bridge next to the captain, Rubea glanced back at the two Princes quietly conversing with one another. She'd listened in on their conversation for most of the trip, but Royals rarely ever had anything good to say. Politics. Economics. Public opinions. Prince Demande was alright most of the time, but get him started on any of his royal duties and he became just as daft as all the rest.

They were lucky they paid so well for her services. As Prince Demande's personal bodyguard, she also received a lot of prestige to go along with it.

Tavern visits were always so much more interesting now.

"So, how long before we arrive?" Rubea asked, turning her attention back onto the captain. She glanced down at the dials and maps lighting up on the console, but she understood none of it. She squinted harder, trying to make sense, but quickly gave it up.

Who cared about such things, anyway?

"Won't be long now."

The captain had a pretty face, deeply tanned with bright eyes. Rubea grinned, admiring the view, but the captain was having none of it. Instead of blushing as was the usual and expected response, the captain gave an overly polite nod of acknowledgement and turned to view her console once more.

Pah. Boring.

Rubea moved smoothly away from the captain and her beloved console and went to the back of the room. Leaning up against the cool surface, she crossed her arms and let out a short puff of annoyed breath.

She didn't have any real interest in going to Nemesis. She had her fill of Royals and regalia back home, what need had she to go to another planet that would surely just as stuffy and stifling? But a bodyguard had no say in the matter. She went where her Prince commanded.

And if that meant following him to some backwater planet to meet a pompous princess, then so be it.

Hopefully she'd find something interesting to keep her occupied when she wasn't watching the Prince's back.

"Ohhhh, aren't you so excited, Princess?" Koan gushed. The violet-haired teenager practically vibrated with her own enthusiasm, yet somehow her hands remained steady and practiced. If there was one thing the exuberant girl could be counted on for, it was a dedication to style. Considering that she was doing Princess Esmeraude's makeup for the young woman's very first meeting with her betrothed, the mysterious Prince Demande, her attention to detail remained laser-focused. Her Princess deserved the very best, after all!

Of course, the young lady sitting before her retained her composure much better than her stylist. No one could accuse the Princess of being anything less than noble and lovely. The beautiful waves of kelly-green hair contrasted so nicely with the forest tones of her dress. She wore emeralds, just like her name. Koan appreciated that. Emeralds suited their lady so perfectly!

It was so strange to think that this hadn't always been her life. She loved being here, living in the castle at the center of the busiest city. This was "home" now—that other place, where she had grown up with her three older sisters, was somewhere she was glad to have left behind. Nothing ever happened there. Life was boring. By awakening to their mission as Guardians of the Princess of Nemesis, so much had changed! They lived in this amazing place, all of them together almost all of the time, with every last bit of everything taken care of, thanks to the Princess! If only she didn't have to attend lessons and training it would be utterly perfect!

"My goodness, Koan—calm down!" chided Calaveras, with a good-natured laugh. "If dear Emmy wasn't nervous already, all your bouncing around is going to make her be!"

"Have some herbal tea, child," suggested Petz, the eldest, gesturing towards a cup that had been left unattended on the tray nearby. Koan made a face at the suggestion; she wasn't as fond of mint as the Princess and her sisters clearly were. They all teased her about it, of course, insisting she'd like it if she were more mature. That was what it was like sometimes, being the youngest.

They were all gathered together in the Princess's chambers—fairly typical—while the rest of the castle bustled about to prepare for the visitors. With the level heads and attention to detail from her two eldest sisters, there wasn't much left to be done today. They provided an excellent framework and timeline to support the receipt of these important guests, eager to alleviate some of the stress from Princess Esmeraude's shoulders. Still, this was extremely important—the marriage between the Princess and the foreign Prince Demande had all sorts of political significance that Koan was happy to ignore. Serious discussions like that put her right to sleep. The part she cared about was the romance!

"I think I see the ship," commented Berthier, standing at the window. She exchanged a brief moment of eye contact with Koan, along with a shared smile. They were closest in age, which had resulted in a particularly close relationship. Even if Berthier didn't speak up when Koan voiced her own excitement, she knew that her white-haired older sister felt just as thrilled as she was.

Her violet eyes were more like stars as she clasped her hands together, sighing deeply. Someday she wanted to fall in love, too! She wanted to have a handsome prince arrive dramatically and sweep her off her feet. Not only would he be gorgeous, which was obviously a requirement, but he'd have some kind of mysterious and dark past. Maybe a tragedy! But she'd prove that she could understand his tortured soul, so he'd open up only to her! He'd treat her like she was a princess herself, which of course she'd become when she married him! He'd spoil her with his riches and lavish her with his pure-hearted affection.

That was some version of what Princess Esmeraude was going to get, right? How could anyone not be enticed by such prospects?

The sound of metal screeching against metal made Rubea remember exactly why she disliked traveling. Being cooped up was one such problem, but the turbulence created when taking off and setting down made her feel ill to her stomach.

She was the first to exit the ship, pushing her way past the guards and royal officials and the like. She mumbled some excuse, Prince security or some such thing, but it was more for her own personal benefit than to look for potential attackers.

Though she looked for threats at the same time as stepping off the ship and breathing in the fresh air. She was a professional after all.

Running a hand through her cropped hair, Rubea glanced around, ruby eyes seeking anything that looked amiss. Her untimely exit caught the attention of a servant - or whatever he was - who looked at her in uncertainty. Perhaps he was offended by her wrinkled clothing.

Or it could have been the large curved sword strapped across her waist that gave him pause.  

Rubea raised an eyebrow. "Oy, the prince has arrived. Tell your princess."

She could tell by the footsteps behind her that the Prince was now exiting the ship. "Scaring the help already?" he said in that even tone of his. Calculating silver eyes watched as the Nemesis servant bowed and walked quickly away.

"Just doing my job." Rubea turned to grin at him. "Gotta make them fear me, right? How else am I to properly protect you?"

Demande looked unimpressed, but Rubea was certain she saw a small twitch of his lips. It was, after all, her unconventional ways that had helped her rise in the royal guard so quickly. It had been what drew Demande to choose her as his personal bodyguard.

She once had thought it was simply because she was irresistibly sexy - who wouldn't want her around all the time? - but soon learned that Demande wasn't the type of man to get caught up in that kind of thinking. And she respected that. It was one of the main reasons she'd accepted the offer. It wasn't often she'd give her respect to anyone.

"So what now?" she asked, stretching. A part of her wanted to go find the nearest bar or tavern and have a strong drink to help her get the last of that traveling discomfort out of her bones. Maybe find a fight or two to gauge the general fighting style of those from Nemesis.

But, 'official business' and all that. Plus, Saphir wouldn't let her hear the end of it if she took off now.

Rubea couldn't care less about meeting the princess or her entourage, but she did want to be there in order to make sure this wasn't some carefully planned trap. She typically didn't trust anyone, and other Royal families were at the very top of her list.

"Now?" Demande repeated. "I suppose we meet my future bride."

His voice was as level as ever, with no real tonal shift to give away his emotions. But Rubea didn't get far in her job by being unobservant. She noticed the hard set to his jaw, the way his arms were straight at his sides. She might have chalked it up to nervousness but that didn't seem right. Perhaps unwillingness? Not that she blamed him. Arranged marriages seemed like a crap deal for everyone involved.

Saphir had tried to explain to her just how important this match up was, but Rubea tuned him out just like most of their other conversations, so she didn't remember the particulars.

"Alright." Rubea grinned again, meeting the Prince's gaze. "Let's hope she's a beauty, at the very least."

The Prince didn't quite roll his eyes - he was far too proper for that - but Rubea counted it as a victory anyway.

Final touches had been applied to Princess Esmeraude only moments before one of the palace staff members informed them of the Prince's arrival. Of course, by that point they already knew it. Berthier's keen eyes had picked out the ship's descent, and even the eldest girls eagerly crowded in the window to watch the arrival. Only their princess kept her distance, feigning disinterest. Her guardians and best friends kindly exchanged knowing smiles, ignoring the tension in her hands that betrayed her nervousness, and did not insist that she had to come watch with them—although they did blithely chatter about what they saw and thought. No one dared admit that the emerald young woman had crept closer and closer with each comment, and they didn't say a thing when they parted slightly to allow her a bit of a view.

Now they waited in the formal reception hall, each wearing her attire as a royal lady in Princess Esmeraude's court. Koan could barely keep herself still. She fidgeted from foot to foot, practically dancing in her high heels. When the bouncing of the dark-haired girl became too distracting, Calaveras nudged her. Koan pouted, but did her best to maintain slightly more decorum. How were the rest of them able to stand so still when something so exciting was about to happen?

The violet eyes glanced over towards Princess Esmeraude, waiting in the center. Koan stifled a happy sigh, pleased to see that her choices in tones looked perfect even in this different lighting. If the Princess had been anyone else, Koan would have felt jealous of her beauty. Yet knowing her so well, instead it seemed only fitting that someone with so lovely a heart would have such a beautiful appearance. Of course her Prince would be completely smitten with her. How could anyone not be?

Ohhhh, why weren't they here already? Tonight there was going to be a grand ball, another marvelous event, but first this initial meeting was required. It had something to do with formal traditions of Nemesis and the way that upper-class people behaved... Petz tried to instruct her sisters on the rites, but Koan hadn't been paying attention. Her daydreams had taken her somewhere else, thinking about what it would be like to be royalty herself and responsible for those kinds of traditions. She understood the bare minimum for what was required of her right now—stand next to Calaveras, don't talk, and curtsy politely when everyone else curtsied.

A fanfare jolted her back to reality.

"Presenting their Royal Highnesses, Prince Demande and Prince Saphir!"

Koan blinked. Two princes? How had she missed that? Did that mean... she could wind up with a prince of her own after all?
