“I’m afraid not, madam,” the concert-master replied patiently to each inquiry.
“Butterfly? Everyone’s at least heard that one.”
“I don’t believe that selection is suitable for the ballroom, madam.”
Pallas gave him her best pout. She was bored of the minuets and foxtrots and all their equally stuffy equivalents from other worlds. If only that old man would give DDR a chance, she was sure everyone would like it. She was curious to see how some of her favorites would sound performed by a string quintet, and it would give her a chance to show off some of her moves. But for some reason, the musicians couldn’t see the merit of her idea.
“Come on, Pallas!” called Ceres, who was currently being twirled around the room by some well-connected junior starship officer whose name she would forget in five minutes. Unlike Pallas, she was lov
SMCG: 11.2Usagi closed her eyes, inhaled the summer-sweet fragrance of jasmine and water lilies, and for a short while allowed herself to bask in tranquility. She was sitting on the edge of a shallow pool in one of the palace's numerous small courtyards. Above her, a fat cherub carved of soapstone poured an endless stream of water from a cornucopia. The aforementioned jasmine vines twined around the base of the statue; in the cool of evening their star-shaped white flowers were just beginning to open. This particular cultivar was a hybrid from Kinmoku, given to Neo Queen Serenity by Sailor Judera on the anniversary of the truce that ended the Larn wars. Its origin was as significant as the gesture itself; animosity between the senshi of Larn and Serenity’s longtime allies on Kinmoku was what had drawn the Solar system into the war in the fist place.SMCG: 11.2 by Yumecosmos
Once, long ago, the peoples of Larn and Kinmoku had been friends, until a disagreement over funding of a joint research project on artificial
SMCG: 11.1Jupiter hummed contentedly to herself as she stirred a gigantic vat of strawberry pudding. Flecks of flour from her earlier confectionery exploits dotted her cheeks and clung to her hair, which was swept up in a tight sock bun. A multitude of sweet smells drifted up from the Crystal Palace kitchen’s massive, seven-rack convection oven, promising delicious things to come. She had really pulled out all the stops this time; after all, it was not every day that the princess of the Solar system turned nine hundred and thirteen.SMCG: 11.1 by Yumecosmos
Beside her, Serenity and Venus scrolled through fabric swatches on their tablets, trying to pick linens for tonight’s dinner. The royal banquet hall was decked out with the latest generation of nano-dyed fabrics. The same tablecloth could be paisley one day and polka-dot the next, tangerine for breakfast and sunset orange for dinner (and yes, there was a difference, no matter what Endymion said.) It was simply a matter of downloading the desired pattern,
Crystal Generation Ch 10 Part 3The whine of hydrogen thrusters punctured the air as several dozen bikes crested the hill at the center of the arena, kicking up clouds of dust in their wake. Beth and Junko leapt from their seats with whoops of exhilaration, while Atena bounced and clapped her hands, spilling some of her popcorn.Crystal Generation Ch 10 Part 3 by Yumecosmos
Their two pink-haired companions did their best not to yawn.
"How long have we been here?" Usagi whispered to Seresu.
Seresu checked her watch and sighed. "Not even an hour." She cringed as the riders' tires slammed into the dirt, splattering mud all over the wall of the arena and the first few rows of onlookers. "You know, there's a reason we invented hovercars…"
Usagi nodded in agreement. "Looks like they're enjoying it, though," she observed, pointing to the mud-stained fans. Indeed, they were cheering all the louder.
Seresu shrugged. "To each their own, I suppose."
"You see that orange TC-250?" Junko was saying to Beth and Atena. She pointed to a bike near the front of the pack. "That's V
Sara Baker Trust Fund UpdatesSara Baker, aka :icongloryangel: was in a car accident in 2007 which left her 'locked-in,' a state of full body paralysis where she retains complete mental function. In the last two years, I've been helping to run fundraisers to help with her care and living expenses.Sara Baker Trust Fund Updates by SenshiStock
The goal for the current fundraiser was to raise $2500 by Septemeber 1st. for the Sara Baker Trust Fund. Although we have fallen short of this goal, I am going to continue the fundraiser until we can hit our mark. A recent post from Sara's mom illustrates just how much our donations are helping.
In light of this, an anonymous donor has stepped forward to offer the following challenge: From now until Sept 13 (that's 10 days!) this anonymous donor will MATCH all direct donations made to the Fund up to $250! So for every dollar YOU can donate, Sara's fund will get $2! Together we can raise $500 in jus
