OSI 2014 - Scene from a Shoujo Manga by mintjam
OSI 2014 - Scene from a Shoujo Manga
Round 5 for :iconotakusenshiidols:

So, Sailor Rethan/Madoi finally makes an appearance. I knew that I wanted to pull her in for this round, because it would be a super cute picture. Neither Ithel or Rethan are royalty, so it took me quite a bit of time to figure out a story for this image... It takes place quite a bit in the future from the last picture, but I'm going to avoid "spoilers" in case I make it to another round that might better fill in the story.

Either way, this had to get done tonight as I won't be home tomorrow (I've discovered this seems to be a pattern - I'm never home on the deadline day).


Madoi craned her head around the door frame to Yogensha's small bedroom in the small apartment they shared while on Earth. Yogensha was carefully packing a select few belongings into a small carry pack; their task was finally complete on Earth. It was time to go home, to see what was left. Madoi frowned slightly at that thought. See if there was anything left was more like it. She shook her head slightly and refocused on Yogensha. She was staring at a small object in her hands, a wistful smile playing on her hands. Madoi eased her way into the room, silently. Things were still a bit awkward between them; Madoi wasn't sure where they stood now, but Yogensha would always be her leader and she would always stand beside her. She frowned again, thinking about how close she had been to losing her forever during that final battle. If it hadn't been for Sailor Moon... Madoi cut that thought off immediately. She was tired of crying and she didn't want Yogensha to see more tears. Instead, she came to a stop just behind Yogensha and peered over the smaller girl's shoulder to see what had captivated her.

It was a photograph. Madoi couldn't stop the groan of embarrassment as she laid eyes on it.

Yogensha turned slightly, a lopsided grin on her face. She'd been smiling a lot more lately. She'd been feeling more alive lately. 

"You're not keeping that, are you?" Madoi groaned.

"Yeah, I think I will. It's a good memory," Yogensha replied.

"It was so stupid," Madoi replied. "I mean, I know we had to have a cover story while we were here, but I never thought it would result in that. It was so embarrassing!" 

Yogensha giggled as she remembered. They had claimed to be students that had been living abroad in America. Their enterprising classmates had latched onto that information and when it was time for the school cultural festival, they had decided to set up their class as an American style prom, so that their new friends wouldn't miss out on the iconic American right-of-passage. They had decorated with streamers and played American music. The girls had dressed in their fanciest dresses and the boys in suits. All in all, it had been a roaring success; students in the other classes had been so jealous that many had abandoned their own rooms and joined in their party. Someone had set up a photo booth and Yogensha, tired from dancing, had pulled Madoi aside for a picture. The background had been ridiculous; it looked like something right off of the page of a shoujo manga. "It was fun," Yogensha stated, firmly, as she tucked the photo into her bag.

"Oh, but I'm making such a stupid face in it! And they made me wear a dress!" Madoi howled in protest.

OMG I Wrote an Entry

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 10, 2009, 8:33 PM

So the last time I wrote a journal was in July of 08. Yes, I'm pretty lazy.

I switched up the CSS some. I wanted something seasonal. :) I'm happy with it. Don't be surprised if it's still up in like August '10 because I'm a lazy ass though.

Things have been crazy. Work saps a lot of my creativity because it leaves me tired and frustrated and unsatisfied. :( I hate that. Nonetheless, I've been trying to be more creatively productive. I've got a lot of things that I'm working on... a ton of jewelry that needs photographed.

On top of that, :icongenius3e8: and I are going to be (hopefully) moving soon. If the financing pans out, we'll be homeowners by the end of the month! *crosses fingers* I'm really hoping it does because living in this apartment is driving me batty.
