ptahrrific: I want a girl with fingernails that shine like justice. (sailor moon)
Title: Artemis Parthenos
Fandom: Sailor Moon
Characters/Pairings: Venus/Artemis, Luna/Artemis, various royals
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Canon character deaths. Spoilers for the first arc and the Sailor V manga, plus light references to the rest of the series.
Disclaimer: The series, settings, and characters are not mine. All hail Naoko-hime.

Scenes from Artemis' past life, growing up and having girl trouble. In any other era, with any other girls, this wouldn't even have been a footnote to history; but these are princesses and royal advisors, in the twilight of the Silver Millennium.

For the Magical Girl Fic/Art Swap 2011; also here on the AO3. The princesses' names come from epithets used for their respective gods in Roman mythology, while their parents are named for the corresponding Greek gods. The poetry is from translations of Sappho; similar verses must have been written by her previous incarnation.

As long as I'm here, let me rec you this episode recap, featuring the Moon Kingdom's downfall in blank verse.

On the first day at the Foreign Planets Academy, the members of the youngest class milled around in tiny, species-segregated clusters. )
