Fanfiction I've actually read

Yesterday I stated reading Suki's Sailor Moon X. It's really just started, only two chapters and just a few new characters so far but I'm absolutely in LOVE with her writing and I can't wait to read more. :3

There aren't too many fics I have read all the way through. I've started on Shuu's Eternal Darkness story, and I read all the way through Lei's Sacrifice Through Time, but not all at once so I think I really need to re-read the whole thing more closely.

I remember a long time ago, I was reading a fic about Sailor Dark Angel. She had a black outfit and a long red braid. I remember really liking it, but I don't think I ever finished it.

Other than Suki's fic, I am also watching two other stories on Born On A Blue Moon is a Silver Millennium Moon Kingdom story that has some PGSM themes and wonderful characterization. I'm not all caught up on that story, but what I've read I have enjoied. I've also been following BSSM: Hidden Destiny but I haven't read the newer stuff.

On The Oracle's Message Boards user michael has been posting a really neat fic about Naru and an AU universe where she is a Sailor Senshi, but not in the ways I've seen it done before. I only read up through about chapter six and there's a lot more now that I haven't gotten to yet. The story can be found here; I was having a great time with it. :D

Has anyone read any fanfics that are complete or nearly complete that they just thought were AWESOME? I'd love to know about them :3

Sailor Moon CS and Things I Want

Have you all checked out Sailor Moon CS by kibate on DeviantArt? It's a fan comic, rehashed version of Sailor Moon with a similar plot line (so far) but with new takes on the characters and over all feel. It's pretty interesting and I've been finding it quite enjoyable. I love the new Luna and I think Mask is a pretty cool guy so far. I'm not a huge fan of the costume designs since we all know how much I love miniskirts ;P But I think the less girly take on the story is fun so far. Check it out if you haven't yet.

There's a lot of Sailor Moon things I'd like to own. Here are some of the things I am particularly wanting right now:

- Infinity Artbook
- Materials Collection
- Sailor Star Healer doll
- PGSM Jupiter Purse
- PGSM 6" Sailor Luna doll
- Chibiusa's Moon Wand
- Any dolls of the outer senshi

At present, I am $93.56 in "Sailor Moon debt." This is the amount of money I have to make back in commissions before I can spend any more money on toys. However, there are three other things delaying further purchases. One: I promised not to buy any more SM things until July 4. Two: we are moving soon and buying things now would be somewhat silly. And finally, three: I'm going to be pretty busy catching up with all the commissions for Glory. And that's way more worth it. :D

I will leave you with some nifty new SM fanarts on DA:
Sailor Mercury Portrait
Awesome Moon and ChibiMoon Lineart
Stunning realistic portrait
A sketch I find very cute :3
Wow - hot Sailor Mars

Infinity Artbook on eBay

Well, there it is - Naoko's self published Doujinshi collection is up on eBay starting at $499.99. The Infinity Artbook is a very rare Sailor Moon item and it doesn't come around much. Personally, I have an eBay alert set up to look for it. :3 At this time, I'm not capable of dropping half a grand on a book - HOWEVER, if I did, it certainly wouldn't be for one with a ripped dust cover thankyouverymuch. I am still hoping that I can save up some pennies before Otakon in August and find it there.

Am I totally insane because I want to spend that much money on a book? I keep telling people, the book is more valuable to me than the money. :D Obsessive? Maybe.

I recently was linked to an amazing Sailor Saturn cosplay on DeviantArt recently. Check her out here, she's wonderful. Doesn't hurt to have an amazing photographer too I guess. Cosplay is so much fun.
