I was thinking of some miscellaneous side plots that some episodes might have had.

Cats can see much better in the dark than humans, so it would be amusing to see one of the humans ask Artemis or Luna to find the lightbulbs and ladder when a lightbulb burns out, or a flashlight or torch when there is a blackout.

Second, the three cats are emphasized to be very much so sentient. I imagine that the Senshi plus Mamoru could get really annoyed if someone talked about Artemis, Diana, and Luna in any way that suggested they were property or only a pet, or otherwise didn´t treat them with personhood like they treat each other. Plus, most people don´t get to physically sleep and cuddle with some other girl who is as much a horndog as Minako is, so someone could say that they were jealous of Artemis for that. Artemis did get called a pervert by Minako in one episode who threw a blanket over him when she realized he was awake while she was dressing.

The cats too could get other kinds of scenes, like nonchalantly eating a mouse whole. Even better, given how much this series loves anything to do with not being heterosexual, imagine if Michiru or Haruka pets Luna and the latter gets worried about enjoying it so much.

Onto non cat things.

Usagi might keep a photo of Mamoru from one of the beach episodes, laminated and held to be precious for eternity, and right when she contemplates it further like kissing the photo, Ikkuko knocks on the door to say something like Makoto is there to trade manga or play video games, making Usagi flustered and frantically hides the photo and saying something like: "Later my love". It´s PG enough that it would still be done for a wide audience but alludes to what people do when they are in love this intensely for the first time.

In the future, the senshi from today and the future plus Usagi and Mamoru from the present could be looking for the king and queen, and eventually they find them making out in a closet, and then when everyone else is bright red, the NQS could say: "What? Are 900 year old people not allowed to be passionate anymore? Total buzzkill" to help emphasize that she is the same person as Usagi.

When the 20th and 30th century selves meet, they could start using the words future, present, past, and other verb tenses in ways familiar to themselves but start having an argument with either each other or themselves when they get confused as to how to keep it straight.

NQS could insist that she isn´t a dictator and she has to listen to boring prime ministers ranting about their parties chosen by a parliament she has no control over, and then gets sheepish when confronted by how they fake being sick to get out of meetings. Especially Mamoru getting sheepish given that this would be normal for Usagi but not him. Bonus points if NQS says: "And no Rei, your father does not get special treatment just because I´m queen."

When the 20th and 30th century versions of themselves meet, one of the 30th century senshi could ask the past selves of one of the 20th century senshi if they want a smooch from their partner from the future. One of them replies: "Why not?" Quickly, one of the senshi whom you ship them with gives them said kiss, prompting the future self of the kissed senshi to be annoyed that their partner is kissing someone else, the past self of the senshi who offered it to be embarassed that their future self acts like this, and of course the 20th century version of the senshi who got the kiss is flustered, meanwhile everyone else is laughing.

When Usagi, Mamoru, and the others are told that Chibiusa is their daughter, and Mars demands to know what month, day, and year exactly it happened, king Endymion could say: "What, do you want the hour and minute too? We did prepare well in advance, thank you Ami for good medical lessons on that" making Ami blush too.

When they arrive in the future and find everyone the way they are and they have a moment to reflect, the 20th century Senshi and Mamoru could ask: "How come you still have the same hairstyles that we do?" and one of them from the 30th could reply with: "Funny you should ask that, Nippon TV wanted to hold a retro month to celebrate a supernova from the 20th century." followed by NQS saying: "By the way, I don´t normally dress this fancy. It´s a huge gown. All my other clothes are at the tailors".

Minako, Makoto, and Rei could be in a class in a prep school talking about world religions, dragged by Rei to be there as it would be important to understanding the way their future citizens think and act, and when they start talking about the antics of the Roman gods, with Juno, Minerva, and Venus trying to bribe Paris so they get to keep the golden apple given to them by Discord, Minako could start to get flashbacks to when this happened to her and what she did to win the contest. Rei looks smug until the instructor goes on to talk in detail about the affairs Venus had with Mars. And then Makoto looks even more smug until the instructor talks about Jupiter and the dozens of affairs and literally dozens of children born of them whom the instructor will explain in next Monday´s class.

NQS could introduce Haruka and Michiru of the future, and then start saying to Haruka: "By the way, the palace inbox got a speeding ticket for you Haruka, your sixteenth this decade."

From Crystal, when Haruka and Michiru say their actions were disrespectful and they would do whatever Usagi says to atone for it, you could imagine the aftermath of the battle and them walking away from the battle with Usagi going: "So, as for your atonement, hum, I do think that my mom needs a babysitter for Shingo this weekend with mom and dad going on one of their date nights, and I just so happen to know a couple of people for the job", smirking as she does so.

Ami could build a box with a cache of photos and clipouts from women´s magazines for her favourite women and/or men, and then Minako, desperate for new material, could find it but be obstructed by a code lock, and then Ami could taunt her by saying: "It´s Euler´s number" or "It´s Einstein´s equivalence formula" or some other formula that Minako definately doesn´t pay attention to enough and Minako looks disappointed. Bonus points if Artemis says that he knows the answer but refuses to tell Minako.

When Chibiusa is just about to blast off into the time portal to the future, and all of the Senshi and Mamoru are saying goodbye to her, Chibiusa could finish by also saying: "And say goodbye to grandpa Kenji and grandma Ikuko and uncle Shingo for me too!" leading them to remember that this in fact what they are to Chibiusa.

Mamoru, Usagi, Chibiusa, Hotaru, Haruka, and Michiru are in the same room, and Usagi and Mamoru are saying: If you watch Chibiusa tonight during our date night, we´ll watch over Hotaru at our place tomorrow night for you on your date nights." Hotaru and Chibiusa are happy that they get to have a date night too.

Someone says that it is ridiculous for girls to focus on an artifact and make it the epitome of the quests they all go on, and then someone like Makoto says: "Oh, boys get to have rings of power as the focus of an eleven hour movie, including three elven rings with jewels on them, but girls can´t even get one silver crystal?"

Pick whomever among the Senshi in your head is attracted to women and have them ask Michiru and Haruka for advice about how to ask a woman out. Then another one asks Mamoru how to ask a man out. Then Minako pops in to say: "Just have me within a radius of 1500 metres and it will come to you. I´m a natural aphrodisiac." Cue Ami to talk about the moral implications of consent if people are inclined to do so with an aphrodisiac.

One of the Senshi goes over to Rei at someone´s house and asks: "OK, I get that people can be Shinto and Buddhist at the same time, but can we do stuff with these Roman gods too at the same time?" followed by one of the parents/grandparents of the Senshi asking their spouse: "What is up with teenagers and these new religious combinations these days? Did Disney´s Hercules make them want to do things differently?"

If the Senshi are staying over at someone´s apartment or house or Rei´s temple for something overnight, and they go out finding beds and they assemble them all in the main room, one of them could point out: There are 10 of us but we only brought 9 beds, and then Michiru could say. "I am aware of that. I can count" and then Haruka blushes behind her.

And finally, when Chibiusa comes back from the future with letters from Usagi as Queen, she could bring an additional note saying that she and Mamoru are paying for the child support from their civil list, they sent Pluto back to funnel the money, and then cut to Setsuna selling off jewelry of unknown but futuristic origin and sending the proceeds as cheques to Usagi´s parents pretending that they are from the revenue department as a special tax credit for Ikuko and Kenji to help pay for the cost of raising her.

There can be stories about their highschool jobs. I've even seen this web comic about Yuichiro walking in and asking Rei at that fortune teller job for advice or something (it was japanese ^_^') not knowing its her.

Mamoru meeting Kenji and Ikkuko. Or Helios meeting Mamoru and Usagi. Perhaps they could talk about that kiss Mamoru wasn't there for. Or every so often a random rose is flung Helios way.

I've heard Pluto's afraid of cockroaches. There could be a cockroach Motd and Plutos their only hope.

Mabey Diana could have her own story like Luna and Artemis. What if Luna P tags along.

what about a story about a Monster of the week, but instead of them being the Bad guy of the week, they're the victims of said bad guy of the week.

Galaxia actually interacting with people as a T.V. executive. Never like the fact Stars villains were basically Classic villains. All she does is sit all day in a chair in some other dimension just like Queen Beryl.

But of course most of her scenes on a chair as a big bad boss would require putting a silhouette on half her face.

This. I want more villian focused filler episodes in general.

I think plot like that could also happen for Ryo Urawa

Dr Mizuno knocking on Ami´s door then to say something like Mako or Minako arrived while she was just about to reach for her skirt buttons? Actually, that wouldn´t be hard to imagine, Ami being immensely flustered like that given her shyness.

  • Maybe That girl who raced Haruka could have some type of rivalry with her.
  • Ryo could try to help the others with a monster over the phone.
  • Prof Tomoe having problems w/ teaching the death busters and fathering Hotaru.
