Also, can you dark blue your vote? It makes it easier to see when I make the voting stuff.

Howl's Moving Castle!

Are we keeping strictly to the plots? Or use the theme with extra characters? Just wondering ^^' cause a lot of movies are only centered on a small number of people and the sailor team is kinda big

I am thinking to exchange all the RPG characters in the event from the actual movie characters to be ones from the Sailor Moon Universe and the winning nomination (the person who picked it first) gets to pick first who they want to play Very Happy

How does that sound?

Oh oh! And any NON Sailor Moon characters can be the actual movie characters s NPC!

... Can I change my vote? I'll go back and cross the other out...


BECAUSE BEAUTY AND THE BEAST WOULD BE FANTASTIC.

Either regular, where Usagi comes into Mamoru's castle, or reversed with Mamoru going into Usagi's castle, would be wonderous. The only reason I suggest the latter is the sense it would make for the senshi to be transformed in Usagi's castle rather than Mamoru's, but still hilarious.

... if Mamoru is the beast, than Dimande could be Gaston!

And if Usagi is the beast, then Fisheye could be Gaston! XD

AND IN EITHER CASE, JUST IMAGINE MAKOTO AS A FEATHERDUSTER. OR MRS. POTTS! OOOH MRS. POTTS FITS BETTER!! AHAHAHAA And Michiru could be a talking mirror (OMG OR AS *THE* MIRROR AND JUST MAKES SASSY COMMENTS ALL DAY LONG. 'Her again, hmm? My, Mamoru, I would never have pegged you as someone to have a crush! Ohohohoh don't try hiding it, I saw what you searched for"), and Haruka an animated Knife (because lols) Minako would take the role of Lumiere because she's briiight XD and would totally ship them from the beginning, haha. Rei as Cogsworth! ... OR HOTARU BECAUSE SHE LOVES CLOCKS. But I think Rei's personality would fit the role better. Brisk, too-busy-for-this-crap, don't rock the boat because I don't want to clean up the mess, etc. XD Chibiusa as Chip! XD Hmmmm... Ami Ami Ami... Probably have to make a new role for Ami. ^^ And Setsuna and Hotaru ^^

But yes. Super excited. And if this doesn't make the contest, I might start this as a regular free-form roleplay at some point because aaahaha. hahaha. yes.

I actually thought that too........... but I skimmed and say "Hotaru clocks" so I thought you were being creative......... Hotaru is obsessed with lamps so CLOCKS are a thing!

Kyra, ILU

My nomination is 101 Dalmations because I think it would be really cute and adorable, and it leaves a looot of options for characters xD Plus imagining the senshi as cute little puppies makes me giggle. (Especially when I imagine a grumpy Rei-puppy, awww <3 Or a constantly hungry Usagi-puppy <3 <3)
