"Luna fits Usagi for the Lens. Usagi is so busy fiddling with her new trinket that she completely misses Luna's boxed text briefing. The GM sighs and skips to the end: "Just say the magic words."
Well that's better then Nanoha, she skipped most of the words. (by being awesome at magic or something..)

Paging Sailor Mod...Paging Sailor Mod...

Edit: in reference to a spammer that infested the thread briefly. Sailor Mod has come and done the job with Magic Modhammer Action with nary a fuss.

All hail Sailor Mod! Or Tuxedo Mod, as the case may be.

Episode #15: Usagi is Frantic! Rei's First Date!

• RANDOM THOUGHT BUCKET:
The shadow work in the opening animation suddenly makes me think of Bruce Timm's Batman: The Animated Series. Now there's a brain-busting thought. (Ba-da-da-DA-dum…)



• RECAP
"Hey, you say 'Mizuno Ami-san', and 'Rei-chan.' Does that mean you're being respectful to me and not to her, or friendly with her and not with me?"
"I… don't… know? We only just got this recap, why are you overthinking this?"
"It's what I do."



• NICE WATERCOLOR PARK:
Miss Clavel leads twelve little schoolgirls through the park and out the other side. Apparently this is Paris this week.

Usagi: "I didn't know you knew any places other than schools!"
Ami: "Oh, I come here to read all the time."
Rei: "¡Looks like a perfect place for a date!"
Ami: "Oh, there's my friend the gardener, Mister–"

Ami bends over to greet him, and I kind of lose track of the scene for a moment. See, she's wearing this blue summer dress, and, ahem, well, anyway, apparently, the park's been sold and is gonna be paved over, which means the gardener's out of a job and Paris gets to exchange an ecologically-valuable greenspace for another parking lot.

Rei swears a Solemn Oath: "¡By Noshabkeming the Radiant, I SHALL bring a boyfriend here before the park is gone!"



• LE BOUTIQUE DE JEUX VIDEÓ:
Luna doesn't look both ways, and is nearly splattered by a Renault truck. But at the last moment–
Mamoru /DASHING LAST MINUTE SAVE!!!
Mamoru: "Are you all right?"
Luna: "Er… meow? Meow!"
Mamoru: "I'll take that as a 'yes.'"
Usagi, Rei, and Ami show up.
Usagi: "What the hell are you doing to my cat?!"
Rei /eyes Mamoru speculatively.
Mamoru: "Saving her life. You should be, uh–"
Rei /now has predatory look in her eyes.
Mamoru /edges away.
Rei /advances a step, lips parted.
Luna /shoots Usagi a look that says, "He's telling the truth, so get him to put me down before something uncomfortable happens, damn it! And why are you late, anyway?"
Usagi: "That's a very verbose look."
Motoki: "Oh, hey, Chiba!"
Mamoru: "Hey, man. 'Sup?"
Mamoru /hands Luna over to Usagi, and nonchalantly hides behind Motoki.
Rei /is willing to bide her time.
Usagi: "YOU KNOW EACH OTHER?!" /gestures dramatically.
Luna /is still in Usagi's hands. Flail flail waaaaa-hey.
Motoki: "Sure, we're in some of the same classes at the University."
Usagi: "HE'S A UNIVERSITY STUDENT?!" /gestures dramatically.
Luna /is still in Usagi's hands. Flail flail waaaaa-hey I feel sick.
Motoki: "Well, yeah. You sound surprised."
Usagi: "Given how often he trips over me, I can only assume he's not on a sports scholarship."
Mamoru: "I don't have to stand here and take this. I'm going to go over to campus and be insulted by college girls."



• NEPHRITE'S HAUNTED MANSION:
Wheel of Fate, turn turn turn, tell us the victim that he shall burn: And today's victim is: Mister Gardener.



• INSIDE THE VIDEO ARCADE:
Usagi is playing Captain Commando and getting schooled, Ami is backseat driving…
Ami: "Want to play Street Fighter II for a bit?"
Usagi: "I swear this will be the last quarter I drop on this machine."
…and Rei is grilling Motoki about Mamoru.
Motoki: "…and he lives by himself in a fancy loft apartment because he's the only son of a rich family. Can I get up now?"
Rei /stands on a chair. "By Crom, I vow that I, Rei, WILL take this– ¿what's his name?"
Motoki: "Mamoru Chiba."
Rei: "¡–Mamoru Chiba on a date! And oh such a date it will be. A date to grind all other dates into the dust. Why, I myself marvel at the sheer perfectitude of th–"
Rei /discovers that the chair had a loose leg.
Ami: "What was that crash?"
Usagi: "Me dying. Okay, last one, I swear."
Rei: "¡My spine!"



• THE NEXT DAY: At Jardin Gentil d'Aquarelle.
Nephrite: "YOU!"
Gardener: "Me?"
Nephrite: "You shall defend the park against all who would destroy its beauty!"
Gardener: "What? How?"
Nephrite /very seriously. "I shall summon a demon to possess your hat!"

Nephrite does so, striking a striking pose. Weird colors, everything goes momentarily black and white, etc.

Mister Gardener summons butterflies! Screaming hordes of vicious butterflies! The servants of Itzpapalotl attack the construction workers, sunder their machines, nibble their International Orange PPE into biodegradeable dust, and hound the terrified workers from the park.

Nephrite /permits himself a small evil laugh.



• MEANWHILE: Rei is stalking Mamoru.
Rei /trips over Mamoru, who blushes, and invites her to tea by way of apology, and one thing leads to another.

{Godmoding is not permitted.}

Rei /trips over Mamoru, blushes, and invites him to tea by way of apology, in the hopes that one thing may lead to another.
Mamoru: "…There are two of them now. Why do they come to me? Where do they come from?"
Mamoru /walks on.
Rei /won't let go of his arm.
Mamoru: "Okay, look, I'll take tea with you if you can explain in six words or less what you're apologizing for."
Rei: "For making you trip over me."
Mamoru: "…"
Mamoru: "What the hell. Let's go."



• AND SO: A little farther down the street.
Usagi: "I have the sudden feeling that I'm missing an important appointment with someone."
Luna: "I don't recall anything that you're supposed to be doing."
Rei and Mamoru walk by, arm in arm.
Usagi: :eek:
Usagi: "That's robbing the cradle! That's impure fraternization! That's consorting with the enemy!"
Luna: "That's jealousy?"
Usagi: "THIS MUST BE STOPPED."



• THE TEA SHOPPE:
Now that she's actually on a date, for real, Rei hasn't a clue what she's supposed to be doing. Mamoru is concentrating on the scones. And Usagi is spying from outside.

Usagi: "Damn it, I'm broke, so I can't go in there. But I can just use the disguise pen–"
Luna /grabs pen away and swats Usagi's hand. "FOR GREAT JUSTICE ONLY."
Usagi: "Frell."
Umino /just showing up. "Why are you spying on the Tea Shoppe, Usagi?"
Usagi /uses her feminine wiles on Umino.

Rei: "…I know a nice place. ¿You wanna go there with me?"
Mamoru: "…"
Usagi /overhears.



• OUTSIDE:
Luna goes to find Ami.
Luna /purr rub purr.
Ami: "Usagi or Rei?"
Luna: "Both. Actually, you look like you could use cheering up more than me."
Ami: "My friend Mister Gardener told me never to come to the park again or the squirrels would get me – no, seriously! – because 'humans are not worthy of the boons that nature provides.' I'm a little… disturbed."
Luna: "I like squirrels. I'd like to see this park."



• CUT TO: Jardin Gentil d'Aquarelle.
Corporate Flack: "And so, Mister Gardener, as it appears that we will not be proceeding with our project to pave over the park at this time, we will be keeping you on for a few more weeks, at least."
Gardener /Gendo Pose. "Mm."
Corporate Flack: "And see if you can do something about those carnivorous butterflies. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to throw this cigarette butt on the grass."
Squirrels kill the Corporate Flack.
Ami and Luna: :eek: "JESUS CHRIST!"
Ami: "He wasn't kidding!"
Luna: "I sense Evil!"



• NEARBY: Rei and Mamoru on a boat.
Mamoru: "Do you think death could possibly be a boat?"
Rei: "No, no, no… Death is… not. Death isn't. You take my meaning. Death is the ultimate negative. Not-being. You can't not-be on a boat."
Mamoru: "I've frequently not been on boats."
Rei: "No, no, no – what you've been is not on boats."
Mamoru: "Anyway, why this park?"
Rei /explains about the park being paved.
Mamoru /dramatic wind ruffles his hair. "So sad, to destroy trees for the sake of a parking lot. People should be more aware of the gentle world around them."
Rei /whoa.



• AND SINCE THIS SEEMS AN OPPORTUNE TIME TO CHANGE SCENES:
Usagi is spying on Rei and Mamoru.
Umino finally works up his courage to make a move on Usagi.
Usagi has already stalked off on her mission.
Umino is somewhat disappointed.



• LUNA IS PISSED OFF!
Luna: "USAGI! BAD GUYS!"
Usagi /jumps. "Wait, really?"
Ami: "Yes! It's the gardener!"
Gardener: "MY HAT FOR POEPLE KNOW NO LIMIT!!!"



• FUCKING SCARY TRANSFORMATION SEQUENCE COUNTER: 2



• THE DEMON APPEARS! Mister Gardener collapses.
Ami /gets mad.
Ami: "No one possesses my friends."
Usagi /peers at the demon. "Just what are you supposed to be? Some sort of purple, elf, mossy, dryad… thing?"



• STARKLY CORUSCANT TRANSFORMATION SEQUENCE COUNTER:
Usagi into Sailor Moon: 15
Usagi into Disguise Form: 5
Ami into Sailor Mercury: 5
Rei into Sailor Mars: 3



• CUT BACK TO: The boat.
{Mamoru's Tuxedo Sense is tingling.}
Rei: "¡Hey! ¿Why are you doubled over in pain and why is lightning arcing from your brow?"
Mamoru: "A spell. I sometimes get them, and people think they see lightning arcing from my brow or elbow. Don't worry about it. It's not contagious."
Rei: "Crap. You're lying to me."
Mamoru: "I know. But please forget the whole thing."
Rei: "¿Why should I?"
Mamoru: "Because you–"
{Rei's Evil Sense is tingling.}
Rei: "¡I SENSE EVIL!"
SUDDENLY, BIRDS! The boat is upset.

Rei manages to get Mamoru to shore and out of the water.
Rei: "¿Are you alive? Okay, don't move, I'll be right back."



• THE BATTLE!
Butterflies assail the Sailors!
Squirrels rip Luna's flesh!
<AMI : TECH > BUBBLE1 : ALL FOES>
<< Butterflies are slain! >>
<< Squirrels are slain! >>
Ami /advances.
Usagi /holds her back. "Uh, Mercury? You don't have any direct attack sp–"
Ami: "Then I'll beat it to death with my goddamn princess wand! Let go of me!"
<< Gardener's Hat casts Hand Flower! >>
<< Usagi is hogtied! >>
Ami: "Thank you!"
<< Gardener's Hat casts Petasos Rope! >>
<< Ami is bound! >>
Ami: "Damn it!"
Ami /strains mightily to burst her bonds.
But she's not that strong.

Enter Rei!
<REI : TECH > FIRE1 : ALL FRIENDS>>
<< Petasos Rope is destroyed! Ami is freed! >>
<< Ami is immune to fire. >>
<< Hand Flower is destroyed! Usagi is freed!>>
<< Usagi is now on fire. >>
Usagi /stop, drop, and roll. "Dammit, Mars!"
Ami: "I am the invasive plant species that chokes the garden of Crime!"
Rei: "¡I am the drought season that leaves Injustice's lawn dry and hardpacked!"
Ami and Rei: "WE ARE THE SAILOR SENSHI."
Usagi: "Poachers! I do the intros in this outfit!"

<< Gardener's Hat assumes Second Stage Form! >>
<< Gardener's Hat is charging up! >>
Enter Tuxedo Mask, dripping, armed with +3 blessed throwing roses.
<< Gardener's Hat loses charge! >>
Tuxedo Mask: "Hey, Mars, Mercury, I'm a decoy!"
Ami and Rei /look. "What?"
Usagi: "He does like me best!"
<USAGI : TECH > MOONTIARA : GARDENER'S HAT>
<< Gardener's Hat is slain! >>
<< Usagi has levelled up! >>
<< Ami has levelled up! >>
Rei: "¡Kill stealer!"
Usagi: "Hey, Mars, Mercury, I'm a decoy!"
Ami and Rei /look. "What?"
Tuxedo Mask /slips away while they aren't looking.
Usagi /giggles.



• DENOUEMENT:
Gardener: "Wha' happen–?"
Ami: "You had a bad trip. Mushrooms."
Gardener: "I do remember weird colors…"
Rei: "You know, I'm beginning to think Mamoru really is Tuxedo Mask."
Mamoru /wanders up, picking his nose. "Huh?"
Rei: "I mean, you never see them in the same place, ¿right?"
Usagi: "By that logic, Umino could be Tuxedo Mask."
Umino /materializes. "You want me to wear a tuxedo and a mask on our next date?"
Mamoru and Rei /highly amused. "Next date?"
Usagi: "Oh, pus."

"Hey, you say 'Mizuno Ami-san', and 'Rei-chan.' Does that mean you're being respectful to me and not to her, or friendly with her and not with me?"
"It means I am hot for Rei but not hot for you. Don't worry, soon [DELETED FOR SECURITY REASONS].."
"Oh."

... whoa indeed, he actually says it like that?

They're better than I thought.

Ami: "No one possesses my friends."
