Act 7, the Return of the Pantheon.
Staff Team
Welcome to Crystal Empire, USA
The Dark Alliance has faced a divide: Queen Nehellenia has been purified and is now the Goddess and ruler of the Moon. With her purification at the hands of Neo Queen Serenity and Neo Sailor Moon, there is a shift in the wind – Greek deities (original planet rulers), heralds (Sailors/Knights) and Augurs (priest(esses) and consorts) from the past are being revived and Hades has been unsealed.

With the coming of Hades has seen the unsealing of Satre and Hyperion, and the future is now even more uncertain as the ruler of Nemesis has a vendetta against Chronos…and more. The Future Moon have now since reunited with the Crystal Empire, their memories have been restored. Will they be able to save their future that they can no longer return to?

Catching Up
// January 29, 2031


Saariyah knew that she shouldn’t have been out that evening. She wasn't feeling well. The stress that had been the typical happenings of the Crystal Empire had taken its toll on her, but even she, despite her own discontent with Earthling food, needed to eat.

She also needed an opportunity to clear her head, and when she’d received a text message from Akari asking to meet, she couldn’t say no -- not when it was part of their mission to attempt to get along with the Crystal Empire.

After meeting Leandro downstairs, Saariyah and her driver drove to the restaurant that Akari told her to meet him at. “Miss Bhasin, when will you be returning to Sea King Towers?”

“I’ll call you.” Saariyah informed him, getting out of the vehicle. Her chauffeur nodded in respect and eventually left, leaving Saariyah to wait in front of the restaurant.

The mystery was solved, Akari had become fully aware why women could take hours to come out of a room while in preparation for going out in public. He'd been in a parked car ten minutes reviewing his own look, not out of vain fascination... but with how much he thought like Jadeite and not Akari, well it made sense to ensure his mind and body didn't match up.

No sign of blond.

Two years he'd studied the effects of paranoia on the psyche, knew what it did to health and personal relationships. Further, he'd helped more than a few patients overcome theirs; the solution was already at the forefront of his awareness ready to be deployed and solve the issue.

None of them worked, and he also knew the reasons why treatment could fail. The most obvious of course was the patient wanted to be paranoid, it made them feel safe to feel scared. That was just the human condition, something he felt confident Cynthia refused to accept. 

Instead of going down that same rabbit hole of endless speculation, he opted to actually exit his car; which was normally the best one in the lot, who could compete with a Mazda MX-5?... Answer, someone that could afford what appeared to be their own chauffeur?

Of course she could, Saariyah Bhasin. Any of the three Starlights could afford to buy a parade float to escort them in. Everything about her reputation in terms of appearance and presence had not been exaggerated. Most likely, she was smart too.

" I tried the food here before, it's good." He'd started from behind, and joined her side to vanquish the distance that made it necessary to keep walking. " You're probably wondering why I asked you out." Saying that was meant to raise some adolescent spark of curiosity within her, but on review it didn't seem like the best approach. The last thing any senshi would want to deal with is conspiracy, he'd need to recover from a blunder right out of the gate. 

" Or maybe you might have already guessed?" 

This was her chance to back out of the meal, he'd set the tone for the evening - now Saariyah would need to decide if it matched her own disposition.

The wait hadn’t been long and Saariyah was glad for that. The last thing that she liked was waiting around like an idiot for someone who wasn’t going to show up. In all honesty, it was reasons like those that she wished that she’d known how to drive, but Leandro was reliable and prompt. It’s why she kept him around all these years, and Saariyah wasn’t someone who coped well with change.

His brusque approach to starting the conversation for the evening caused the silver haired Starlight to cross her arms, as she was famously known to do so. “Excuse me?” Saariyah asked, raising a brow. “We have vastly different taste buds. I’ll be the judge of whether or not this is good to me.”

What he said next, however, didn’t settle well with her. Out of all her comrades, Saariyah was the least one to play guessing games. She didn’t have the patience for that, especially when it was someone who she didn’t know very well.

While she was on friendly terms with Jeremiah, it was the least case with Akari. Saariyah was least likely to approach a person on her own volition if she could help it, especially when it was someone within the Crystal Empire’s inner circle. She mostly preferred to keep to herself unless the other person showed genuine interest in getting to know her, which had apparently been a theme as of late – Saariyah was, admittedly, surprised by that.

That was why Saariyah was trying her hardest right now, especially for Jeremiah’s own sake, to try and have this conversation. While he might have moved on a little ahead, Saariyah had remained where she was, giving him a disgruntled look.

“I don’t play guessing games,” Saariyah retorted. “So either you tell me what you want now or I’ll leave.”

This kind of attitude was desirable, it showed that Saariyah could show distrust even to the four kings. Well, maybe it was just Akari in general. A lot of what anyone assumed in regards to him was most likely true. Rumors got around and painted a picture of someone not worthy of trust. This wasn't Japan, he could see the physical manifestation of where his own authority came from from this very spot. Across the ocean though, so far away from Mason and Cynthia? Sometimes he lived up to the title 'king' they had given him.

Jeremiah was restoring their name, did that mean Akari was doing damage to it? He'd reached his conclusions through logic, basic understanding of human nature and projected models based on history. The idea of being 'wrong' seemed foreign, yet people lately kept talking like he was. He needed someone else to recognize what was so obvious, and that's where Saari came in.

Akari believed that she had little interest in staying, or in food for that matter. No doubt the image of this alone was suspect, Kari had kept his contact with the senshi to a minimum, so why now? Why her?

Based on a preliminary assessment of her, she valued her time and appearances. Right now, Saari was most likely trying to figure out if Akari dimmed her light any. She didn't seem curious to find out either, either what he said next kept her here or made her leave. 

Still, he needed to ask in a way where if she chose to walk away - she'd more or less forget him afterward. " Do you think Miyazaki made the right move at the time?" Her first initial reaction to the question would be critical, it would paint the guidelines for how this went forward... or stopped entirely.

The reason that he summoned her wasn’t what she had expected at all. If anything, it caused her green eyes to flutter, scoffing at the mere question before her eyes narrowed. “No,” Saariyah replied nonchalantly, moving closer to him in a gesture that showed that she would remain. Clearly, he wanted to talk – but she also made it clear to him that she wasn’t above leaving.

“We are soldiers. We have duties to uphold and our mission is to protect our Queens and Kings.” Saariyah began to inform him. “Forfeiting duty because of a dissenting opinion is disgusting and foolish. That said, I don’t agree with Cynthia’s dismissal of her either. Both were foolish, but Ayaka knows better than that and should set aside her personal opinions and help nurture her Queen to a proper path. She’s behaving childishly.”

Saariyah, unlike most, said that while showing no emotion on the matter after her initial surprise on the onset of the question. Saariyah didn’t take kindly to the abandonment of duty, especially when she lived each day abandoning her own desires in favor of duty. Earthlings, she’d learned overtime, were selfish creatures fueled by their own desires.

“It seems to me that the Inner Guardians have a habit of being flighty.” Saariyah informed him calmly. “And what about you?”

Saariyah saw the bright light of an integration lamp, and shoved it aside. She could not have been more clear, yet - that look of disinterest had disappeared. Akari felt confident he was no longer in the 'annoying' category and moved to ' is he dangerous'?  Skirting that line between friend and foe wasn't safe to be sure, but this plane he was flying was now experiencing turbulence; which meant it couldn't be landed until a proper flight path was found.

Kari wasn't above lying, but the reason people saw through lies was most people only lied about important things. Important answers tended to be researched and weighed against a persons character, in a video game it was the ' Saariyah will remember this' moment. Which was also why he couldn't just walk away or shrug, his best move was to be what Saariyah was now expecting.

A coworker that was chasing juicy gossip.

She'd already found him annoying once, putting himself back in that category would just confirm her slightly veering mindset. Hopefully, she never looked up some of the specifics of branches of psychology he pursued. " Mason relies on me for keeping peace in the east, I can tell you there they value respect above just above everything else. I've seen people walk out of meetings because the terms of a contract were made open ended, details were left out, someone refused to meet in person. I understand why, it's to make sure they aren't wasting their time and make the person they are dealing with realize they are not there just to take a chair in a conference room. Miyazaki is an advisor, but Cynthia's record for following anything she recommended is low. So, why be there?"

That was smart, boring yet elite enough to be expected from one of Mason's kings. It made sense while telling her hardly anything about Akari's own mindset. Saariyah should come to the conclusion ' he has no social life, business, business, business' and think he just made a mark as if she'd just taken a street survey.

Saariyah didn’t have an exact detailed opinion on Mason, but it was far more positive than what Kes’s opinion was from his absence as he excavated Elysion. Saariyah was, in all honesty, more open-minded to the stories of the Sol Guardians and the Kings than most were led to believe.

She knew more than what was led to believe. So when it came to Mason’s handling of the situation, Saariyah approved of him even further, even admired him. He showed the levelheadedness and unbiased personality of a proper King.

Saariyah decided to go into the restaurant with Akari, even ordered a table, which…admittedly, she was shocked at but Saariyah was trying to show tolerance. She was tired, easily agitated and just wanted a moments peace.

“As a ruler, Mason knows that dissenting opinions are going to happen, and he knows not to take them personally.” Saariyah informed him nonchalantly, having seen enough of the palace to know his decorum. She was, after all, Fireball’s senior lady. She attended her fair share of meetings.

“And that, however, is where you’re mistaken.” Saariyah would move to sit at the table they were given, her green eyes staring at him firmly. “Do you think that I agree with my Queen one-hundred percent? I don’t, and I’ve made it known that I don’t. Far too many times have I wanted to return to Kinmoku, and had I been in Ayaka’s position with her mindset, I wouldn’t be having this conversation with you.”

Saariyah would move to sit the napkin onto her lap.

“However, I cherish my Queen’s safety overall, and wouldn’t ever leave her alone on this planet. It’s even more crucial now that you are at war that Ayaka should feel the urge to protect her Queen and King. But is she even doing that? Is she even trying? No.” Saariyah was irritated from that fact alone. The mere stubbornness of the Inner Guardians was outrageous.

“She forfeit her duty and she’s behaving childishly. It is not our place to decide whether we forfeit our duty because we’re tired of not being listened to. If we all did that we wouldn’t be standing here.”

Damn, just damn... There went his escape, why is it when he dealt with humans everything went 'according to plan' yet senshi found a way to violate his expectations? Could Jeremiah really be right?...

No, it defies all logic. I refuse to believe it.

History told humans story, whether the victors wrote those stories or not didn't matter - he'd seen microcosms of this truth through his entire practice. Granted, Akari worked exclusively with prisoners (and anyone that felt like throwing two hundred dollars into a fire bin off the street); but he'd been able to integrate his patients back into normal society, they showed marked improvement in their behavior. Reality was screaming out he was right, and it wasn't just because he could read minds.

When she entered the building, Kil looked back in the direction of his car where he wanted to go back to. It was a mistake to choose a 'no smoking' restaurant and Saariyah hadn't done what people in her situation normally did. Cynthia had warned him in another life about underestimating 'girl power'...so what were going to be the consequences of underestimating 'woman power'. 

His hand hovered over his chest where his most precious possession laid. She had been another girl that gave him the warning, yet now his desire was to build her up. In the end, every senshi, king and knight wanted the exact same thing: see Cynthia rule the kingdom in a prosperous society in safety. Kari didn't agree with Jeremiah (or hardly anyone else) about how to bring about that end.

Once he had gotten a second wind, he caught the door she'd walked through before it shut entirely. Too long of a delay would make his intentions too clear in this situation. He even needed to pick up his pace to keep up with Saariyah, sinking deep to the side of the booth next to the window. She being so attractive, it was a bad idea to be almost directly in front of her, less someone come to the wrong conclusion.

Kari didn't return her glance, if he got too close her thoughts would become clear with every breath; there was danger in saying something that was for her private knowledge and coming off as sinister. But he was listening to her voice, despite having more knowledge about the cars that were passing outside than what was on the menu. Even his responses seemed distracted, like any eavesdropper could be a deadly assassin. " Some dissenting opinions yes, but what if every one of your ideas never saw the light of day? Are you still contributing, or are you at an impasse of world view? Does your perspective actually make it more dangerous for you to attend the meetings? Humans have egos, Miss Bhasin. Each time it takes a hit, it must find new motivations to take the next one."

When the waitress got to the table, he simply asked for a water and requested a single check. The least he could do was pay for her meal. Kari tried his best to smile in the attenders direction, but it came off more sullen than simper. Try as he might, his eyes never wanted to join in with an expression on his face that wasn't genuine.

Was he seriously asking that?

Saariyah’s patience was wearing thin already as her eyebrow raised. He was being incredibly persistent in efforts to convince her that her belief was wrong, and that, to Saariyah, was the wrong move. Saariyah had already explained to him her opinions on the matter, it wasn’t up to them on whether they forfeit duty over dissenting opinions that were never heard.

Quite frankly, it was possible that Ayaka just never had many good ones, as she’d known the Sailor Guardians from during the Sailor Wars to make stupid decisions.

“Oi, if you’re trying to convince me to change my mind on the matter, I’m not going to.” Saariyah was quick to dismiss the repetitive conversation. “Duty should come first and foremost and Ayaka has lost all favorable opinion within the Crystal Palace for her behavior.”

At least from what she’s seen, chaos had woken within every waking moment at the Crystal Palace since then.

A disgruntled grumble escaped Saariyah’s lips as he explained somethings about human behavior, even suggesting that it could be dangerous for her to attend meetings.

She shrugged her shoulders, ordering herself a glass of water. “A human’s emotions are my least concerns,” Saariyah scoffed at the idea. “I don’t trust them, just as I don’t trust you. What are you trying to achieve?”

"Far be it from me to try to change your mind, madam." Was that a mistake? Some saw the title as a sign of respect, others thought it made them sound old. Being a pop star, he probably could guess it was the latter. 

Kari did what he always did in conversations where something important might happen, he became a psychologist.  Saariyah wouldn't be able to see what he was writing, but it was her name at the top of a fresh page and he did write a large 'no' beneath it. She wasn't saying anything he wanted to hear, and it was likely the other two Starlights would share her perspective. Did Miyazaki really have no sympathy at all?

"And that's the problem, a queen and guardians protecting and ruling humans - without being aware what 'humans' want. How they react to certain knowledge, and their importance. If you abandon sheep out in the cold, a new shepherd will show up. I don't think it's a coincidence Chaos has chosen now to strike." That was too much, too much. His eyes were drifting to the exit, wondering what he needed to say to make her storm out. 

Saariyah didn't like repeating herself, few people did. Any word felt like the wrong one now, so he wrote down words instead. It was a quote by the woman in front of him ' A humans emotions are the least of my concerns. I don't trust them.

He'd been seeking people that were a solution to the problem, but today he'd found someone with the exact view he'd wanted to avoid. Anything he said to her that had any memorable value would likely end up right back in Jeremiah's ears. 

" Perhaps duty is coming first for Ayaka as well, negative reinforcement often brings about a change in tactics." Kari was talking and writing at the same time, people got nervous when someone was dictating 2 feet away. Drivers Education Teachers knew it well, and sometimes made check marks on a blank page just to see how the driver handled stress while maneuvering the vehicle. That's why he was talking, to distract her from the page he was starting to fill out... and the type of pen he was using to do it.
