Got this idea today: in Codename: Sailor V we had Usagi almost going to the Crown while Minako and Artemis were in before Naru dragged her away, and then Rei almost going in to investigate Luga before her classmates drag her away... But what if they went in and met Mina and Artemis?
Well, at the time, neither Usagi nor Rei were Sailor Senshi yet, so they'd just be more civilian acquaintances of Minako at the point.

Of course, when they'd meet each other again later in the Sailor Moon manga, Artemis wouldn't have to introduce Minako in her civilian form to them, so there is that.

I have this itch to rewrite the Sailor Moon X fan-season... I know it's typically really poor etiquette to rewrite someone else's fanfiction, but it's been dead for over 20 years and holds sentimental value to me from when I was a kid. But the writing... it's... well, it's really bad.

Rewriting it to keep the ideas that work and discard the ones that don't is something I'd be interested in doing, but I'm not sure if it's something I should do.

@noildoof Well, this is the Fanart + Fanfic Section, so as long as there are characters and scenarios from SM involved and it stays "PG13" (="Above the belt" etc.) just let it flow. :)
Hmm... yeah, what the heck, I'll just go ahead and do it. It's been 20+ years, I don't think anyone will get mad over it at this point. Is there someone I can send rewrites to for proof-reading, though? It's been a long time since I've watched the anime, so I need someone to help me keep things canon-compliant. ^_^'

Yes, but, you basically can’t logically justify it since they’re enemies.
This is where you have to get creative if you don't things to get wildly OOC. Some ideas:

- The villain has amnesia and doesn't remember they're enemies, and Sailor Moon tries to rehabilitate them
- Sailor Moon has amnesia, and the villain tries to convince her to join them (i.e. "lovebombing")
- The villain has some sort of compelling reason for wanting to switch sides and makes a genuine attempt to do so
- The villain has a romantic obsession with Sailor Moon and tries to win her over (a la Prince Demande)
- The villain died and was reincarnated, basically as the same person but no longer evil
- The villain was corrupted/tainted/etc by some evil force and was purified by Sailor Moon and wants to show gratitude

lol with fanfiction there's a way to justify basically anything

They can also get an early start here-all they need is to be found by a Mooncat and get their first transformation items. And this could add a complication: from reading Codename: Sailor V and comparing it to how Luna met Usagi in both manga and first anime I got the impression that it had been Artemis to find Usagi and sent Luna to her shortly before he and Minako went abroad (China in the manga, London in the anime), and here he'd have to keep the Moon Princess' identity from Minako (who tends to be surprisingly savvy and skilled at all the most unexpected moments) until the time is ready to reveal it.

Yes, but again realistically, how can you trust them?

Half of Batman's love interests are villains (Catwoman, Talia al Ghul, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, etc.) and he gets shipped with them all the time.

And as for Optimus and Megatron, all shipping aside, there have been numerous modern (and even a few retro) Transformers stories in which Optimus and Megatron make amends with each other and become, at best, allies in an alliance of peace or, at worst, respected frenemies in a somewhat stable cold war ceasefire. They are no longer always enemies. Some stories even start them off as friends and brothers-in-arms before a falling out that precedes the civil war. And in the aforementioned cases of them making peace with each other, that friendship of theirs is rekindled.

I have recently been watching a show called Survivors, it's plot being about the lives of a group of people who survived a virulent unknown strain of influenza which has wiped out most of the human species and I began to wonder what if this happened in Sailor Moon? (No Powers AU)

Now unlike most fanfics the events happen BEFORE the girls ended meeting each other (well most) so everybody traveling in their own separate groups before meeting up with each other at the end of the fic.

Rei is a loner unwilling to trust other people, hunts with a crossbow.

Makoto is with her Senpai and a few others who he did not break up with her due to the virus happening. (He quickly realized he wouldn't get far without Makoto, hell he's the leader of the group because of her but sadly he still doesn't love her and is just lying to her. `:()

Minako is the leader of her group of mostly men.

Ami is also the leader of her group which consists of three men and one girl and the girl is Usagi. Ami being the leader is non brainer, her high intelligence and medical knowledge have kept the group since day one. But Usagi isn't very useful at ALL and there's only one reason why the group keep her around at all.

Mamoru is traveling with... the Black Moon Clan. He's not the leader, that's still Demande and the two really do not like each other and Demande would love to get rid of him but he can't because Mamoru is their doctor and you do NOT get rid of someone with medical knowledge after the collapse of society has happened and most of the other doctors are dead.

The story would really be about "What are you willing to do to survive?"
