PostSubject: Plot Bunny Discussion Thread   19th March 2013, 1:26 am

I'm opening a plot bunny thread for everyone to discuss fan works and ideas - whether they actually want to WRITE their ideas or not. Wink This is a place to throw out any ideas that you've had, or ask for help hammering out something you've been piddling with for awhile.

-------------

Here's a thought I had during my recent manga re-read: What if Usagi had somehow been able to find her way to the Moon Castle pre-canon? Like Lucy Pevensie in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, Usagi would stumble her way back to her castle.

I thought it could be a cute little story about a younger Usagi who might interact with the hologram of Queen Serenity. Maybe Usagi could figure out some of her superhero powers and declare herself to be the Moonlight Knight - Protector of the Earth! Smile

This could be followed by similar cute stories of the other Senshi finding their Castles when they're in need of sanctuary, and discovering that they're Princesses or something. It would be a little girl fantasy, a dream-like story that comes full circle as the Senshi awaken later on.

---

Any other ideas you're willing to share?

Two days ago, anon was posting about finding out his crush being a lesbian on 4chan /tg/ (Traditional Gaming). He did it with a "modern fantasy" theming (much like Sailor Moon is modern age + fantasy elements): The girl who turned on his crush was a "pureblood vampire" and "turned" his crush into a vampire (undead).

Response: SMITE THEIR EVIL ARSES!

Things led to each other, now we've got a setting, where pallitards (paladin wannabes) are extremists who hate non-humans, ogres have mafias, somebody had a misunderstanding with Sailor Mercury, took her computer and stripped it down for spare parts, "bums" who live in sewers are badasses because they hunt all kind of monsters that live down there (and eat some of them), and monsters have equal rights (in amerika)

Denmark's a human only nation. Spain has another inquisition going on.
USA's protected by Paladins, who are major badasses, but don't go "CLEAVE AND SMITE" on you unless you give them a good reason. Paladins (real ones) are backed by a god, usually Torm.
Japan has three things: Tentacle monsters, porn industry, and magical girls who somehow keep order. Sailor Moon is a venerated figure all around (my addition). People sometimes go there for a monster-hunting safari.

It's dubbed "Faechan".

Here, have a link!

I puzzled through Fae-chan (which was slightly painful because I have zero background in MMOs and I'm guessing that's what you're drawing on), and it actually looks pretty cool. Sweet.


I was browsing ff.net a few months ago and saw, among the many dub inspired Serena/Darien fics, a story about sixteen year old Serena running off because she was pregnant.

While I thought the original story was stupid and overly dramatic teen angst, I did have a passing thought of (partly inspired by SOMEONE on these forums complaining about the physical changes Usagi went through in the manga after awakening as Princess Serenity Wink), 'What if Serenity had been pregnant when she died on the Moon Kingdom... and the baby was sent to the future with her?'

I ended up stuck in a loop of thoughts where Princess Serenity was hiding her pregnancy from everyone, and when Usagi awakened as Princess Serenity, the Silver Crystal revived the baby inside her... immaculate conception. (Which is very stupid, it would make more sense if she re-conceived the child in R/S with Mamoru.) Cue pregnancy drama.

I think this is a sort of angsty, possibly worthwhile idea to explore. The child would be Chibi-Usa's older sibling, there would be some social/emotional fallout where Usagi prematurely leaves her family and goes to live with Mamoru. She might or might not go to highschool, and there would be several scares concerning possible miscarriage due to her becoming Sailor Moon.

There would be a somewhat interesting change in Crystal Tokyo when they visit - due to Chibi-Usa having an older sibling (who is killed during the attack, nyatch) - so Chibi-Usa was not the 'heir.' The future would be changed as soon as they returned to the past, but it would still give Usagi and Mamoru a scare.

IDK, family drama with superheroics.

One of my plot bunnies was born with one sentence. What if Usagi had allowance the day Morga sold her cursed jewels?

I had this idea a while ago: A Sailor Moon AU in which there is a senshi for every single star, planet, moon, constellation, and two clans fight each others: The Dark Kingdom and the Silver Millenium.

Each of one have their leaders, which they name "Serenity" and "Metallia". The Slver Millenium's current Serenity is Sailor Venus, while the Dark Kingdom's Metallia is Sailor Sun, better known as Beryl.

There is a lot of "fake" sailor senshi with an immature star seed that eventually stop giving powers, and only one senshi per celestial body may keep her power forever. Men can be soldiers as well, but this is a rare occurance.

The goal of both clans is to get the sacred power of the silver crystal (nothing new) that is within the body of one "legendary senshi". And both have their different methods. The Silver Millenium try to recrute as many soldiers as they can, while the Dark Kingdom try to drain the power of many humans at once, hoping to find the one who carry it.

Senshis and Knights don't always have to be recruted. A few rogue ones act on their own, even though they are kinda harassed.

The Silver Millenium counts a few 10 members as the story starts. In which there is Io, Juliet, Pluto (as a semi-active member), Venus and Proteus. (Proteus was the previous Serenity, but felt her powers were going away, so she named Minako in her place.)

Luna and Arty are still there, as advisors who help the girls who recently discovered their powers.

All the senshis design are unique. (I imagine them wearing their Beta outfit ^^)

Usagi will live her life normally, until she is almost killed by one of Morga's jewel. She is saved by Luna and awakened as Sailor Moon. She would be weaker than everybody else and almost all the other members are pretty sure she won't keep her powers for long.

(Inspired by Darkury in PGSM) Ami already knows who she is at the beginning of the story. She is Sailor Mercury of the Dark Kingdom, but despise this, she will try to be friend with Usagi once she discovers who she is. She eventually join the Silver Millenium.

Rei wasn't aware of her powers and wished to stay neutral after that was done.

Mako discovered her powers when the story start. Venus try to get her to join them, but without any success.

Minako became Venus as normally. Though, unlike her colleagues, she act as a champion of justice and arrest thieves and other troublemakers. She is the first Sailor Senshi with an household name.

Mamoru knows perfectly who he is. As Tuxedo Kamen, he remains neutral.

I really want to write that... But I have no motivations.

The one plot bunny I have that I never finished writing or even could find myself doing was-

Mamoru finding his family- Basically an adventure that is centered on him minus the girls for the most part. Very character driven and all that would include reasons why his family didn't come for him in the orphange, more about his mother's family, more on his father's and there was going to be a ghost subplot and all.


Then I have another one about Beryl in the modern era and what lead up to her finding the Dark Kingdom and reasons why she would release Metallia all over again.

They are usually given greco-roman names, (Ultramarines descendant chapters are 2/3rds of all SM chapters, and Ultras are Romans in Space) or names from a specific region: e.g: White Scars are usually given asian names (their historic/fantasy counterpart culture is the mongols, except that they ride huge bikes as befiting the forty first millennium), while the Salamanders have an inkling of african theming, given that their geneseeding turns them into red-eyed onyx-skinned marines (the later is a response one of their extra organs has for the weak magnetosphere of their home planet).

Then we have the Raven Guard, whose most well known captain is Kayvaan Shrike, the Imperial Fists, whose two members in the ultramarine movie are Chaplain Carnak and Brother Nidon, and their first captain is called Darnath Lysander.

So it's not a surprise that an Ultramarine shares a name with a planetary body that was given a name from the culture their theming stems from.

A journalist film Minako transforming as she tries to debut as an idol. She stalk her and have her to do whatever she want, because if Mina disobey, she leak the video to the tabloids, and everybody's lives are ruined.

As of right now I have a total of four fanfic ideas in light of the current one I'm working on starring Chibimoon.

The first one would be a special one off from the current fic, so it would star Chibiusa's team and be a crossover pitting the Senshi against the Weeping Angels from Doctor Who. It'd be my homage to the franchise parodying a few scenes from episodes such as Blink, The Time of Angels, Flesh and Stone and The Angels Take Manhattan while telling my own story with it. A special guest appearance by Pluto and maybe a few other characters who won't appear in the Chibimoon fanfic. How I would go about explaining the meet, I have no idea as of this time. The easiest way I can think of is just to have it like they belong there and give them no Doctor Who background.

After that is my own reboot of Sailor V and the first storyarc of Sailor Moon. I'd rather not go into detail about those ideas however.

Another one is inspired by Captain N: a regular boy who gets pulled into the world of Nintendo and leads his own team of classic NES characters to fight evil. Only the characters actually look and act as they did in their video games and instead of a random princess we have Zelda, Peach and Daisy.

Old bunny... connected to the last update I did on my Otaku Senshi thread.

In the anime, the time travel stuff confused me a lot when I was younger. Like. What even happened with Nehellenia? Was she deaged and her kingdom revived in the current timeline? Was she just sent to the past? Was she sent to an alternate universe? WHY?

So I invented a crazy-complicated story where Nehellenia was sent to the legit-past to relive her life, and relived her life (a good life) until the point came where, at the behest of Chronos, she had to sacrifice herself/her memories/her sanity to preserve the timeline (and allow the children she had given birth to to survive).

It spanned from pre-Silver Millennium through Crystal Tokyo in a multi-arc mess of story.

The bones of the story, in chronological order (not necessarily the order in which it was meant to be written):

-5: Nehellenia the Queen of Lost Children leads her people away from destruction, from the asteroid they lived on to a search for a new home. (She deliberately avoids the solar system.)
-4: SIDE STORY ABOUT COLONIZATION.
-3: The solar system, after twenty thousand years of development and magic, is on the brink of war. Earth colonized Mars, Saturn and Jupiter once upon a time, and then accidentally lost touch with Jupiter and Saturn. Jupiter created an empire spanning all the outer planets (except Saturn, which was a death trap). So on and so forth. Political fantasy THINGS. Earth pisses people off and then goes, "OOPS." Because an evil black star called Nemesis was going to screw with everyone, and was eating the souls of Sailor Senshi before they could be born (the traditional celestial warning that things were about to get screwy). A last stand is made with the untrained, surviving Senshi at the front, Sailor Saturn, Serenity, Nehellenia, and a few others. The only survivors are Serenity, Nehellenia, and bebe Pluto - and they have the Silver Crystal, the Golden Crystal, and the Black Crystal, which they used to create a seal that split the soul of Sailor Nemesis from Nemesis itself, casting away the black star (planet *cough*) and sealing Sailor Nemesis into the sun, where she was called Metallia. They split the Crystals between Earth, the Moon (where Serenity took the souls of the unborn/dead Senshi/Pluto), and Nehellenia's people, who settled down on Saturn's moon Janus.
-2: SIDESTORY ABOUT how Nehellenia's people became magical ninja clans, and then Nehellenia goes and curses herself to lose her memories and go insane and protect the timeline. Her poor babies. Sad
-1: Beryl awakens Metallia, who begins her quest to unblock the seal on her cage with the three Crystals. The first target is Janus - the site of the battle that destroyed her. Beryl goes to Janus with Jadeite as a tagalong on a super-secret diplomatic mission. Jadeite accidentally on purpose starts courting the elder Princess of the court, Princess Nehellenia. This causes a chain of events that lead his own brainwashing, the destruction of Janus', Princess Nehellenia awakening as a Sailor Senshi, and all kinds of horrific consequences that lead to the destruction of the Moon Kingdom.
0. In-between arc that acts as a prequel to the next main arc. The survivors of all the Kingdoms band together over ages past, waiting at the behest of Queen Serenity for the Princess to awaken. (And Janus' court waits for their Prince or Princess to rise up as King or Queen of the Dark Kingdom.) Naru, grieving for her friendship with Usagi and her memories of Jadeite, picks up the three shards left behind of the purified Black Poison Crystal. Shingo Tsukino falls into trouble with people who call themselves the "Phoenix Agency," who recruit him shortly afterward due to his relationship with Sailor Moon. He discovers Sailor Moon's identity, and ends up keeping it secret.
1. Three years post-anime canon, the original Senshi have split up to follow their dreams. In the Arctic, Helios' psychic investigations into the past accidentally wake up a malevolent force and then subsequently accidentally on purpose awakens Sailor Janus and Sailor Earth in quick succession.
Expanded: Mei is a normal fifteen year old girl in Tokyo who is technically orphaned when she runs across an older girl with a magical bracelet that reacts to Mei... unfortunately awakening her as Sailor Janus, the Senshi of Mystery, and saddling her with her "Guardian," Hawk's Eye. Meanwhile, Naru gets stalked by Tiger's Eye (for the second time in her life) while Helios tries to figure out what's so strange about her.
The villain of the piece, Onyx, is the latest host to the surviving shreds of Beryl/Metallia, who still have yet to be fully exorcised from the world because REASONS. The Shitennou are revived in a gimmicky mess of mind-slavery... that goes slightly wrong, because Jadeite never died in the first place. He is recovered from his cursed sleep, but doesn't get the extra dose of mindwhammy that his compatriots do, and proceeds to go insane.
The first season/story follows the global attempt of the corrupt Dark Kingdom to take over everything... again, while Mei and Jadeite begin a Very Bad Idea romance while he plays spy and recovers the memories of the past that Beryl took from him. Naru and Mei become a Senshi team in Tokyo, rarely running across the other Senshi (who are also working, because the Dark Kingdom is pulling a global stunt). They thwart one BIG plan while crossing with the mysterious "Phoenix Agency," and 'recover' Nephrite and Zoisite from mind control whammies - and they are subsequently returned to Mamoru's side. Kunzite is still evil, etc.
2. Chibi-Usa, X number of years in the future, wakes up one morning to find out that the timeline has changed (or something), and now she has a little sister. Kousagi Tsukino literally appears overnight with her cat guardian Phoebus. Sailor Pluto disappears from the Time Gates, which are now manned by Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune. SOMETHING IS FISHY. Then Kousagi takes off for the Time Gates - launching herself back into the past, where Chibi-Usa has mysteries to get to the bottom of.
Chibi-Usa becomes the third man on the team with Sailor Janus and Sailor Earth, creating a new identity so that no one she knows finds out she's in the past again. For REASONS. She and Helios start 'getting to know each other' again while everyone involved gets caught up in a twisty time mess inspired by Another Story and complicated by Onyx and Kunzite (who are evil) and Jadeite (who is almost-evil). Also, there is the Phoenix Agency and the secrets of Janus to deal with.
3. The Another Story wraps up into another plot by Onyx, who is revealed to be the past form of Wiseman. Crap goes down, leading to the End of the World (gasp) and the Deep Freeze - which takes place on four different plot levels, with the original Sailor Senshi bringing the brawn and purity to the front, the Phoenix Agency scrambling around for intelligence and shielding Earth from outside invaders (via proactive espionage) and recolonizing Janus to become the 'new' Dark Kingdom, and Sailor Janus et al with Chibi-Usa set to defend Elysion directly. The original Sailor Senshi win, the Phoenix Agency survives, but tragedy strikes the third group... leaving Chibi-Usa to travel to the future with Kousagi (who is her daughter, not her sister) to take up her life where she left off and fix everything.
4. Crystal Tokyo: soon (but not quite yet) to be under attack by more outside invaders. Chibi-Usa starts her quest to save her friends by taking up her grandmother's legacy, and searches for unawakened, reborn Sailor Senshi among the populace. Including the Amazoness Quartet, who are fourteen and silly. Then the attackers come... and Chibi-Usa still has to find Sailor Janus (who's been busy, yo) and revive Sailor Earth, save her OWN child (now she knows how Usagi felt!), protect Jadeite (who's crazy, yo), find Helios, and make contact with the unfortunately named Dark Kingdom (where Sailor Pluto has been reborn and raised, and Sailor Saturn is hanging out, asleep).
And then Nehellenia's third child comes out going GRRRR EARTHLINGS MURDERED EVERYONE I LOVE I WILL KILL YOU ALL and tragically murders her own sister. Again.

----------------------------------

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Expansion on the Dark Kingdom: Queen Nehellenia's people were the Dark Kingdom before they settled on Janus and became the Hidden Kingdom. No one knew about them except for Queen Serenity and the people of Saturn - who were also hidden, creepy people. The Dark Kingdom was made up of refugees, outcasts, mercenaries and thieves, and they were highly secretive, paranoid people who ventured out under assumed names and identities in order to protect their new home from outside forces. Queen Nehellenia underwent a bizarre courtship with a persistent young nobleman from Saturn, and eventually consented to marry him.
They had three children. A son, Adamas, a daughter, Nehellenia, and a second (much younger) daughter, Sanispriya. Nehellenia went and drew power from the Black Crystal to create a guardian for her three children - a black dog, Garm. Shortly thereafter, she vanished with a host of volunteers and was never heard from again. (Queen Serenity, counselled by Sailor Pluto, never reported to any soul what had happened to Queen Nehellenia.)
The Earth knew nothing of the Dark Kingdom until Beryl 'discovered' it. Endymion encouraged Jadeite to go to the Dark Kingdom as his own representative, trusting him to report back honestly. Beryl, Jadeite, and their entourage stayed there for several months while Beryl worked with the King's adviser... leading towards the destruction of the Kingdom when Beryl attempted to seize the Black Crystal. The King was killed outright. Prince Adamas was critically injured. Princess Sanispriya's last sight of her brother was how he bled out on Jadeite's sword, before a massive explosion rocked the Palace and the two things Princess Nehellenia wanted to protect most - the Black Crystal, and her sister - were cast away into a void. The Black Crystal came to rest on the planet Nemesis, and Sanispriya fell to Sedna. Princess Nehellenia awakened as Sailor Janus, took her brother's body, and fled to the Moon Kingdom. And so it goes.
Adamas was reborn as Shingo Tsukino. Sanispriya traveled far and wide with two companions, bitter and vengeful and unchanging as she took on the identity of Sailor Sedna. The name of the Dark Kingdom was taken by Beryl.
Onyx, in the midst of this, was the King's closest adviser, Wiseman, before he betrayed them all. He was wounded in the battle, but Beryl sealed away his body and healed him, intending to use him in the future to track down the Black Crystal. (He finally manages it in the 30th century, leading to his own death in the 20th century.)



And stuff. I'm long winded. Bleh.

Reviving the dead thread!

-----

Once upon a time in anime land, all the Senshi went to Beryl's hideout and died, but Usagi went and made a wish upon her shiny Silver Crystal that everything would be normal and happy again.

In a new universe, with a slight change of sentiment, Usagi resets time so completely that the Dark Kingdom has been restored in their sleep... and they're ready to wake up again any time now, with only Usagi around with her freshly gained semi-traumatic memories of magical powers and becoming a superhero to stop the Dark Kingdom's rise.

The Dark Kingdom awakens, and Usagi regains her Senshi powers without Luna's help, becoming the masked vigilante Sailor Moon! Whom Luna, Artemis, and Sailor V know nothing about (until Artemis and Sailor V begin to recover some memories of their past lives, but that's a slightly longer story). The masked vigilante Sailor Moon protects Tokyo with new partner Tuxedo Kamen - the amnesiac gentleman thief with curious signs of PTSD in his waking life. (Superhero/Gentleman Thief, I love this!)

One of two things happens then.

Either: A: Mamoru regains his memories of the past timeline, and he and Usagi save the world while the inner Senshi gather together separately, led by Sailor V.

Or: B: Mamoru does not recover his memories, and he and Usagi's partnership culminates in a mysterious romance wherein he is the one (still) trying to solve the mystery of the Princess, and why his partner won't team up with the gathering team of Senshi (which leaves him to be their liaison, fufufu), and on top of that he has inexplicable nightmares of being possessed and losing his mind and killing Sailor Moon.

(Either way - Luna never finds Usagi, but she does find Ami and Makoto, who find Rei together. Usagi begins to solve the mysteries of the Dark Kingdom that are still mysterious (and she does it on her own, too! Joy and rapture!). Naru still has her tragic romance because I will never let it die. The story would end at the end of Classic satisfactorily, but then there would be the sequel which would deal with the inevitable fallout concerning the later seasons of the anime.)

------

Disclaimer: I have a couple guilty pleasures/obsessions: time travel fics, and Mary Sue fics (okay, insofar as the Mary Sue is well written and flawed and a human OC but still counts as a Mary Sue because a lot of gratuitous OCs still count as Mary Sues. I have a pet topic, okay?)

So, whenever I get into a fandom I'll usually come up with a few ideas concerning my favorite story tropes. Time travel + SM = fufufufu.

So....I have a plot bunny that I know I could never do justice for, so I thought I's post it here in the hopes that someone would adopt it...not to mention I have four other stories going on right now, and I can't split my attention for one more story.

The idea could be spread from the Silver Millennium all the way to Crystal Tokyo, but that's a huge undertaking, so I'd never expect that.

The Plot is based around the notion that, if the royal families knew that their heirs were going to be ricking their lives, wouldn't they ensure that the royal line could be continued should the worst occur...Sort of like the Heir and the Spare thought process.

So, in this story all of the senshi would have younger siblings (male or female, it doesn't matter), as a way to ensure that the throne would have a ruler, should something happen to the senshi while they were protecting Princess Serenity or the Solar System.

And the second part of the plot revolves around the Senshi being jealous that they siblings have a peaceful life, and that they are being treated as the heirs/heiresses to the throne, and their jealously makes them weak to the Dark Kingdom's influence.

The third part of the plot requires that, with the Sailor Senshi, the Dark Kingdom doesn't have any interest in Earth Generals.

And the final part of the plot would require the younger siblings being on the moon, and having to witness their sisters take part in the destruction of the moon kingdom and the silver alliance.

---------

The younger siblings don't necessarily have to take the place as Sailor Senshi, but them being reborn in the Modern Time means that the thrones to the different planets wouldn't be empty. Sailor Moon could take Tuxedo Kamen's place as being an aid to him, rather than the other way around.

And I just have this one scene in my head where the young rulers of the planets have to negotiate with Endymion and his generals (after they remember) about staying on Earth until their home planets are able to sustain life (basically until the Planet Crystal has been recovered) and how they have to swear that they will be on their best behavior, and have to consent to being monitored by the Generals to make sure that they aren't doing anything that runs counter to Earth's best interests.

So that's that, then.

One plot bunny that I had that I don't really want to pursue (because it would end up being too similar to a fic I'm already working on) is a season 1 AU were only Serenity and Endymion were reborn in Tokyo, and the senshi were frozen and awakened along with Luna and Artemis.

The idea was that all the senshi and Artemis have their memories back and are searching different schools for Serenity.  Luna had some technobabble go wrong with her cryo sleep and Mercury did what she could to fix it, putting a pair on bandages on her forehead to dull Luna's abilities while she heals.

And we all know what happened after THAT.

Here's a couple of plot bunnies:

* Takes place during the first arc, only the characters are young adults. Usagi is in a serious relationship with Mamoru (perhaps even married) at the beginning of the series before Usagi meets Luna. After Usagi meets Luna, she becomes Sailor Moon and she starts falling for Tuxedo Mask, neither knowing the others identity. A strain is put on their relationship because they both are keeping this secret for each other.

* This plot bunny is inspired by a picture I saw. Chibiusa goes back in time and gets a chance to meet her parents when they were children (perhaps younger than she is now).

* Either Mamoru and Usagi are turned into children, or they meet as children. Either way they run away, (either from guardians for the former, or parents for the latter) and spend a whole day together. This could also play into the previous suggestion above.

You know, I've actually read a fic with that premise.  It definitely felt a lot like the Terminator movies and that was probably on purpose.  But the basic premise of the fic was that Viluy sent two robots back in time to when Usagi was  4 years old (1984) and killed the young Usagi, leading to a dystopian future wracked by endless war, Chibiusa had been at the time gate when it happened so she wasn't affected by the timeline changes, so she went back in time to stop the assassinations.

Like I said, it felt very Terminator-esque.
