The pen is mightier than the depression


Unmei cried on Sailor Moon. A lot. Now SHE knows how it feels. Oh, and they ate burritos and gave her the BEST GIFT EVER!

Unmei Tama was laying on the couch, her head resting on the side cushion and her knees pulled up to her chest. She was watching some silly documentary, about spear heads and how they were made. It was pretty cool, considering the way the spears had changed over the years and why they had changed over the years. She made a mental note to talk with Kun about it.

Besides her was a plate of apple slices. Two apples, to be exact. She'd... only had one slice, so most were still there. Well, half a slice. But she was trying!

    Artmeis is sort of laying on Sailor Venus's shoulder as she hits the roof from a series of jumps. She beams and looks to Sailor Moon, then gives a pause. "You have the pen, right?" she whispers. "Because I don't!". Artemis gives Venus an annoyed look. "Of course she has it. I'm pretty sure Luna gave it to her."
    Sailor Venus nods and tip toes down the stairway as she looks to Sailor Moon and shssssss a moment. "We're gonna scare her like I did last time if we're not careful."
    "Hi Unmei!" she says spreading her arms out directly behind her as she watches the documentary about spear heads. Her eyes look to it.
    "...I like swords better." she announces. No one asked her opinion.
Usagi Tsukino 2017-03-19 23:32:04 73700
Sailor Moon lands next to Venus. She lands a bit harder than intended and hisses through her teeth. Large watery eyes at Venus because she's got a scrape on her knee! "Owieeeee ow ow..."

And then she blinks. And there's a moment of panic where her hands flail to all the places where a pocket would be. Finally, she pulls it out of her subspace pocket and breathes a sigh of relief.

And totally tries to play it off. "Haha...tricked you..."

Luna sighs from her own shoulder perch.

She follows Venus in and peeks from around her. Of course her focus is to the television. "Swords? Pffff. It's all about tiaras!"

She perks up. "Oh, apples!"

She plops on the couch next to Unmei, probably on her feet if they're not moved!, and only remembers to ask permission when her fingertips are inches from a slice.

Luna's claw in her shoulder has nothing to do with it, of course!

"Ow! Um, can I have a slice?"
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-03-19 23:37:23 73701
Unmei Tama blinked and frowned. "Hey, spears are pretty cool, they--" And then froze. She let out a yelp and performed the 'Oh my gosh I'm a slob ack gotta straighten myself up!' dance. Which mostly involved her trying to sit up straight and fix her shirts so it wasn't wrinkled. Honestly? She'd looked fine. And the girls probably knew that dance well.

And then she stared. Sailor Moon. And Sailor Venus. In. The living room. With her. Still she probably knew them a little bit by now. But this was SAILOR MOON AND SAILOR VENUS! These two were her heroes! Sailor Moon was sitting RIGHT BY HER! SHE COULD TOUCH HER! SHE COULD TOUCH SAILOR MOON!

She was snapped out of it by words. "H-huh? O-oh. Oh, um, y-yes. H-have... have a-as many as you like," she squeaked. Staring at the idol, her cheeks flaming red.

Oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh eeeeeeeee! "C-cute... c-cats..."
Minako Aino 2017-03-19 23:49:14 73702
    Good, no jumping out of her seat this time! "Hii Unmei! This is Artemis. He's my kitty!" she says. Artemis ughs. "I'm my own cat!" he says. Sailor Venus just smiles a bit. "-and that's Luna! That's Sailor Moon's cat." she says pointing to the black cat. She grins.
    She peeks at Sailor Moon as she goes to grab apples and she climbs over the couch to sit on the other side of Unmei. "So how's it going?" she asks. "You seem to be doing a lot better since last time I dropped by!" she says.
    Artemis hops off Venus's shoulder to the couch's backside.
Usagi Tsukino 2017-03-20 00:00:36 73703
Luna hops to the back of the couch and holds Artemis down with a paw. "This has been driving me crazy. You have some serious windfur going on." And she goes on to groom his fur down. Because its what cats do.

Sailor Moon claps and cheers and it's a good thing Venus is doing the talking for the moment because she's got about four apple slices sticking out of her mouth. She holds up the plate to Unmei as though they were her own and offers them up with hopeful eyes and apples for teeth.

A few seconds later and her mouth is apple free. They're in her tummy. Because she's a magician eater that way.

"So! Sorry it took so long to get this thing. It had almost been done for awhile, just needed some specifics. But here!"

She holds up a dark purple pen looking stick thing.

Luna looks up from her grooming of kitty fur. "It's specifically designed to react to only your DNA and only has one form allowed. So you can't go turning yourself into a...what did Mamo-chan say? Oh! A princess hacker rogue Sith Lord."

"And you have to have it off for a few hours every day."

"I recommend while you sleep. It wears off at midnight, Cinderella. So just...sleep well, I guess?"
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-03-20 00:05:48 73704
Unmei Tama nodded. "Y-yeah. Me and Kun have been talking a lot. He's really understanding. He's like..." She paused. "A..." Her cheeks turned red. "He's like a really good big brother." Totally did not have the word 'dad' float to her mind. He is NOT that old. She then smiled, shaking her head at the apples. "Go ahead, help yourself." Then glanced to the cats. "Wait, they talk? That's so cool! And they seem nice, nice to meet you two!" Then her eyes went wide. "Wait, are these the cats that are dating each other? That's so cute! She's even grooming him!" .... Busted.

And then her pen. SHE GASPED, taking it. She stared at it as if it was made of gold. She didn't even hear the princess hacker... all that. She just stared at it. And then... ran off.

She was in the bathroom a second later. "How does it work how do I activate it is there a phrase how does it work?" You could almost HEAR the... you could totally hear the panic in her voice.
Minako Aino 2017-03-20 00:12:44 73705
    Artemis totally 'acks!' and 'pffbts!' as Luna places a paw to hold him down and just begins grooming. He makes this totally sour 'I am not enjoying this' face probably for show. "I'm a cat. It doesn't matter how I look!" he complains. Then he sputters. "WE'RE NOT DATING!" he says.
    Then Sailor Moon gives her the pen and Venus smiles and then blinks a bit and watches Unmei run off to the bathroom. She crawls over the couch nearly knocking over the cats as she then gets up to her feet and skips over to the bathroom. She taps her bottom lip. "Well. I think the phrase would be something like 'Luna Pen, Transform me into a girl!' or something like that." She looks back to Sailor Moon with a meek smile. She actually isn't /sure/.
    "That's right... right?" she asks.
    Artemis continues to object to being groomed. Such a horrible horrible cat fate.
Usagi Tsukino 2017-03-20 00:18:30 73706
Sailor Moon's eyes widen a bit as she shifts, because 'brother' or 'father' aren't words she uses to describe Kunzite.

(She's not sure of the word, really! Even if it were something...well, there's already a Kunzite Queue!)

Luna balks! "Dating! Harding! Pfff! How preposterous!" And continues to groom.

Dating. Like even. It's not like they're going to run into their future offspring in a few months or anything. That would be crazy.

Sailor Moon sort of just gapes for a moment after Unmei and then her question, and she shrugs at Venus. She doesn't know, either!

Luna sighs. "I've programmed three possibilities. One is indeed Venus' guess. There's also 'transform me into my true self' and 'transorm me to me.' I wasn't sure which one to use, so now you have options based on your mood. You're welcome~."

Poor Artemis? Poor Luna! She's gonna have a massive furball! "Of course it matters! We're dignified creatures, you heathen!"
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-03-20 00:23:35 73707
Unmei Tama could be heard in the other room. "Transform me into me!" And then a flash, then silence. They'd hear a... thump from the other room. Followed by crying. Lots and lots of crying.

When they got in there(because how would they not?) they'd find Unmei on her knees, legs sprawled out. She was herself. All the little signs that she was a guy were gone. Her body was back to its natural(after all the magic changing her, at least. Cause hey, she was probably one of the few girls who could compete with Usagi on chest size.), female form. And she was crying.

It wasn't a bad cry, though, it was a 'i'm so happy I'm me again I just can't stop crying no matter how hard I try' cry.
Minako Aino 2017-03-20 00:30:39 73708
    Sailor Venus looks down at the all sprawled out Unmei and her crying and she eeeeeees a bit. "There we go! Now no more worrying! Just rememebr that Sailor Moon told you about the time limit! Runs out at midnight and needs to be off for four hours! Think of it like a magical smartphone battery and it needs recharging every so often!" she says.
    Artemis huffs. "We're cats. I'm pretty sure I spent all morning chasing this rat back outside in Mina's apartment?" he says. "I think it was a rat..."
    She leans down and whispers to Unmei. "It was actually a toy mouse I got for him." she insists.
    "It turns out talking cats are still kinda cats." she says with a wink.
    She leans back up. "How do you feel? Come onnnnn. Tell us tell us tell us." she begs.
Usagi Tsukino 2017-03-20 00:34:09 73709
Of course Sailor Moon recognizes the type of crying it is. Because, well, she's a connoisseur of tears. Because she's done them all.

She plops next to Unmei. "So it looks good? Luna only had your DNA to work with and I didn't meet you often before, so I thought it looked right."

Luna sighs and argues with Artemis. "Of course you chase rodents. But nothing says we can't look amazing while doing so! Don't you remember Egypt?"
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-03-20 00:39:10 73710
Unmei Tama attacks! Poor Moon, sitting by her, got tackle glomped by the crying Unmei. She held her, likely knocking her back onto her back, arms tight around her throat and just hugging the stuffing out of her. The only reason Venus escaped this fate was she was standing.

"T-thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you..." The rest of her thank yous disappeared amongst her sobbing and sniffling. "I-I'm me. I can't believe I-I finally get to be me again I'm me I'm me I'm me..." she whispered, holding her so tight and just shaking helplessly, the tears flowing.

"I-I don't have that... that thing anymore, that disgusting growth a-and I get to be... I get to be me..." Poor, poor moon. Going to be crushed by a waterfall.
Minako Aino 2017-03-20 00:45:50 73711
    Artemis huffs! He doesn't say anything more he just wears this really annoyed look.
    Venus grins and places a hand on Unmei's shoulder. "There, there." she says. "Everything's going to be much better from now on, right?" she says. "And Mamoru and Kunzite got the rest I heard!" she smiles.
    She leans down. "Don't forget to thank the kitties! Luna did most of the work but Artemis helped get it done super fast, too, just like I thought!" she says.
Usagi Tsukino 2017-03-20 00:50:53 73712
Sailor Moon sort of just lays there for a moment under the strangling hug, eyes spinning at the force of it all.

She stares up at the ceiling, knowing what it's like to be on the recieving end, finally, and she can come to only one conclusion.

These hugs are awesome, just like she thought!

Luna hears to suggestion to thank her and, having seen what happened to her charge, slinks back and hides behind Artemis.
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-03-20 00:54:58 73713
Unmei Tama nodded, eventually coming up for air. She looked up to Luna with a big, watery grin. "T-thank you... thank you s-so much. I... I can never thank you enough..." She sniffled before... acking! "I-I'm so sorry!" she squeaked, jumping off Moon and holding out her hand.

"I-I didn't hurt you, did I? I'm so sorry! Is your head okay? I didn't hit it, did I?" oh dear. Then...

"Hey... you guys like burritos? I ummm, m-made some home made chicken ones earlier. They taste pretty good, but I can't eat them. But Kun liked them. I think. It's hard to tell with him sometimes."
Minako Aino 2017-03-20 01:06:20 73714
    Sailor Venus crosses her arms. "A mere hug isn't going to stop Sailor Moon and I'm pretty sure she lives for those." she opens an eye and winks at Sailor Moon. "Besides if she was actually hurt, I'd know because I'm one of her guardians n' stuff!" she insists.
    Artemis gives a paw wave. "You're welcome Unmei! It was a pleasure to help!" he says. "Also that's totally my paw print on the bottom." he insists. He didn't know Luna addded to it later so he has this completely smug face on right now.
Usagi Tsukino 2017-03-20 01:11:32 73715
Sailor Moon accepts the hand up and beams at Unmei. "Nope! I've hugged harder!"

Her eyes go wide. "I love burritos. I love food." This is, of course, a universal truth.

Luna snorts. "And mine. What, did you think I'd let you have all the glory?"

Of course, it's not like hers is bigger. It's more like a company logo of some sort now.

Sailor Moon tilts her head. "Why can't you eat them? Are you vegetarian?"
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-03-20 01:15:26 73716
Unmei Tama shook her head. "No. I just can't... stomach them, right now. Anythign wet. It's just been hard to eat lately. Kun is helping me. I was trying to make them because I thought I might be able to stomach them but, well, I couldn't. So heh. i guess." She walked to the kitchen and... the burritos were good! They had rice, sour cream, chicken, salsa, mmmmmm. All mixed together and then put on the tortilla. She made them each a bit one, then sat down.

She pulled out her pen, flipped it over and... burst into a giggle fit.

"Awwww, it's so cute. It's like you guys have a little marriage agreement with your paws," she said with the biggest grin, showing it off to the other two girls.
Minako Aino 2017-03-20 01:21:25 73717
    Sailor Venus eyes the burritos and then takes one and begins eating. It takes her a moment to not talk with her mouth full, but Unmei answers and she nods. "It's fine. I'm sure you'll work your way there eventually! As long as you're not making yourself sick by /not/ eating, because taking it the completely opposite direction isn't good for you either." she says with a series of nods.
    Artemis pffffbts! "HEY!" he says turning to Luna. He huffs and there's kitty paw batting at Luna about this and also the implied marraige agreement. flail flail flail bap.
Usagi Tsukino 2017-03-20 01:24:21 73718
Sailor Moon looks at Unmei with a face full of burrito. Chew chew swallow!

"Ohhhhh yeah. Hey, what about spinach? The baby dried spinach stuff? It's good. Makes you feel like a baby bunny when you eat it!"

This is, of course, how her mother first got her to eat most of her vegetables...

There's a slight glowing blush to Luna's fur. "As if!" She baps right back at Artemis! And then there's a pounce!
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-03-20 01:26:45 73719
Unmei Tama snickers softly and nods. "A bit. Kun has been having me eat a lot of apples and carrots. They're hard enough I don't have to throw them up or anything. And I'm working on eating some harder foods. Like the chicken? I can even swallow some of this chicken. With a bit of difficulty."

She sat down and admired the pen. Before sighing and hugging it. So wonderful.

"I'll need to try some of that... a baby bunny does sound cute..." She then glanced to the playing kitties, then leaned in a bit. "So... they're totally in love, right? With each other?" she whispered.
Minako Aino 2017-03-20 01:33:05 73720
    Sailor Venus nods. "MMhmmmm! Kunzite cares a lot about people." she says, just a glowing blush there. She also mentally adds 'when he isn't a horrible darkness abombination working for a jealous witch that I need to repeatedly shoot orange golden lasers at.'. She ahems and quickly recomposes herself. "That's good!" she says.
    Then she looks left and right and then leans down. "Totally." she says.
    That's quiet enough for Artemis not to overhear as he sort of playfully fights at Luna. They've probably rolled right off the edge of the couch to the cushions by now.
Usagi Tsukino 2017-03-20 01:41:45 73721
Sailor Moon nods, solem. "He's very cuddly, too. But in a very Kunzite way. Which is one of the best ways."

She doesn't think about brainwashed Kunzombies!

She beams and laces her fingers under her chin, eyelashes fluttering. "I was an adorable baby."

Yep, there's a THUMP on the floor. Luna's playing for keeps, now!

Sailor Moon whispers. "I think so. Luna gets all blushy and flustered if you bring it up. Kinda like how I used to!"
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-03-20 01:45:08 73722
Unmei Tama nods. "I know, right? He's just the sweetest. I'll be honest, I don't think i could have made it this far without him. He puts up with so, soooooo much from me. He's like the coolest guy ever." She then frowned and stared at her pen for a bit. "Him and Mamo. I just wish..." And then trailed off. She shook her head.

"But, really. They're just awesome." She then blinked and snickered. "Well, I see your adorableness hasn't worn off."

Then blinked. Wait. Did she just flirt with sailor moon? Her cheeks turned bright, bright red. Oh gosh. She even lost focus on the cats for a second. Oh dear.
Minako Aino 2017-03-20 01:49:04 73723
    Sailor Venus can't help but think about brainwashed kunzombies because that's be the majority of her interaction with him up until maybe last week. But just because she's thinking about it doesn't mean she's dwelling on it too much. It's just too fresh in her head for her from her point of view. It sucks, kind of.
    She leans down and pokes Unmei's check. "Sailor Moon, I think she's turning into an apple!" she says worriedly, with those bright red cheeks. Maybe that was a MAGIC APPLE EARLIER SHE WAS EATING! D:.
    Rawr, mrow, huff! Kitty play fight over there!
Usagi Tsukino 2017-03-20 01:54:54 73724
Sailor Moon, of course, never knows when someone is flirting with her. The closest she gets to realizing when someone is is when Mamoru makes her blush and feel funny in the tummy and giggly and that's usually something only he can do!

So she blinks at the sudden red apple face! "Oh no! Did you choke on something?"

Luna tries to pin Artemis down!
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-03-20 01:57:08 73725
Unmei Tama stared at the two of them. Okay, this just made it worse. "W-what? N-no, I mean, I was jsut, I..." Oh gosh, now they were making her all flustered.

distraction. "Y-you know, this really isn't fairrr. You two are transformed and stuff, while I'm just me." Please please pleeeeease don't mention that she's still transformed. She's herself now. If anything, she's negative changed. Unchanged. Nega changed?
Minako Aino 2017-03-20 02:03:44 73726
    Artemis gets pinned down. "Argh! Uncle! Uncle!" he cries out. "You win!" he calls out.
    Sailor Venus head tilts and then 'ohs!". She concenrates and with an orange flash, she's Minako Aino again. Just regular ol' weird Minako.
    "Well, it's really hard to climb buildings as Minako. Like I'd still be climbing if I tried!" she says.
    "You could just use the stairs and the door like a normal person!" yells Artemis.
    "BUT THAT'S BORING!" she calls back.
Usagi Tsukino 2017-03-20 02:08:54 73727
With her victory at hand, Luna sits poised with all the elegance and grace of an elegant and graceful kitty, grooming her paw in victory. "Of course I did. Was there any doubt?"

Sailor Moon tilts her head in thought.

And, well, Minako did it, right? That means she can.

But still, Unmei's seen her as Usagi before and she's still expecting someone to go 'ug YOU'Re Sailor Moon?'

So she drops the henshin and acts like nothing's wrong, nope nope!
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-03-20 02:11:40 73728
Unmei Tama grinned and nodded, before giggling. "Thanks!" then paused. "I guess it doesn't mean as much, since I already knew who you two were. I mean, Mamo talks about you allllll the time," she says, motioning to Usagi. "And if you're his girl friend, I KNOW you have to be absolutely amazing. And Sailor Moon on top of it!"

It was easier to gush about someone when they weren't transformed.

She then glanced to Venus and nodded. "True. I'll be honest, if i could still have my powers, I'd climb buildings as Clotho in a heart beat. Climbing the stairs are sooooo boring."
Minako Aino 2017-03-20 02:24:02 73729
    Artemis grumbles and goes to search for Mamoru because he has to be somewhere in this place and they need to go play poker or something. He's had enough crazy girls for the day and coming from Minako's cat that's probably A SEVERE statement.
    Minako smiles and stands up. "I'm going to get drinks!" she says as she turns to the kitchen and skips off. "Be right back!"
Usagi Tsukino 2017-03-20 02:27:56 73730
Usagi beams, relaxing at the lack of 'ug YOU'RE Sailor Moon?' "Mamo-chan has good taste."

Luna rolls her eyes and curls in a ball for a catnap.

She's not sad he left. Hah! Why would she be? That'd be ridiculous!

Usagi sighs. "I'd still trip and fall on stairs if I was Sailor Moon all the time."
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-03-20 02:31:15 73731
Unmei Tama shrugged. "So? People trip and fall all the time! The important thing is that you get back up afterwards," she said proudly. "... I've tripped a lot." Both physically, and mentally. And fortunately Kun and Mamo had been there to pick her back up. A lot.

"So... ummm, is there a way to disable it if I'm out past midnight? I mean, sometimes I'm out reallllly late at one of Yuzu's concerts and i don't wanna go... out of being me in the middle of one of them."
Usagi Tsukino 2017-03-20 02:34:54 73732
Luna looks up from her spot. "Theoretically if you used it an hour or so before midnight it shouldn't wear off. Or at least you'd get a tingling warning so you can go give it a couple minutes rest. But its important to let the pen recharge."
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-03-20 02:49:40 73733
Unmei Tama nodded. "Gotcha. So it's a recharge, thing? So... if I like... kept it off for a few hours before midnight, let's say... I took a nap at five, turned it on around ten, I'd be able to be me until show was over? Just so I know how it works?"
Usagi Tsukino 2017-03-20 02:53:30 73734
The cat hums in thought. "I think that might be possible. But really it's theoretical. I'd test that theory out in a controlled environment to see how it would handle such things. You'd be the first person to use it nearly continuously. The closest we came was with...someone else, but the someone was usually asleep around the wear off time."
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-03-20 02:54:36 73735
Unmei Tama snickered. "Yeah. I hear Mamo made quite the fine girl." Yes. Yes she knew. "Though I think mine is separate." She then paused. "Hey, I think they're having a history special on old castles and stuff. Wanna watch a bunch of royals?" she asked with a grin.
Usagi Tsukino 2017-03-20 02:56:15 73736
Usagi blinks and thinks for a moment. Then she shrugs. "Sure. Maybe I'll get nostalgic about something."

Or something might make her cry.

Then she could go ruin poker night for Artemis by crawling onto Mamoru's lap a sobbing mess!

Win-win!
