Quick reminder: Sailor Moon and its characters are the property of Takeuchi Naoko and a bunch of other people. They don't belong to me. I've just borrowed them for a not-for-profit story. Please don't sue, not that you'd get any money from me anyway. Being a student, I'm perpetually broke.

I trust that I don't have to tell anyone that this is going to be incomprehensible to anyone who hasn't read the previous stories, <SHAMELESS PLUG> The Wars of Light and Shadow, All Darkness Met, Little Lies, An Ill Fate Marshalling, The Watcher, and Through a Glass, Darkly (the plumbing story is probably not essential, however).</SHAMELESS PLUG>

I know, I've been postponing this story for an awfully long time. Thing is, there's a problem with it. A serious problem. To whit: I didn't properly resolve the emotional conflicts of one of the major characters. My beta reader is still swamped with Real Life, and I've revised this damned thing too many times to be able to bring any objectivity to the process if I try to do it again. I think -- I think -- that the first couple of chapters are okay and shouldn't need to be revised again, but this story is going to be coming out slowly until my beta reader has finished all her tests, exams, and term papers.

Choices takes place in Crystal Tokyo in the year 2999, which puts it five years after the Dark Moon War, four years after Through a Glass, Darkly, and ten years after most of Ill Fate. Originally, this story was supposed to be a sort of coda to the CWS, showing life in Crystal Tokyo and the Negaverse after the two nations had been working together for a while. Then I noticed that I'd left a loose end dangling when I wrote that addendum to Ill Fate, and strange things started happening from there. So there will be another story after this one, which really will be the last. Stop laughing!

I do love feedback, people! Email
