"A computer model, yes. And we keep our identities secret for about the same reason the princess does - we have enemies we don't want to be able to come after us in our everyday lives. First that was the Dark Kingdom, who destroyed the Moon Kingdom and returned at the same time we did, but after that there was Ail and An, and now there's the Black Moon."

"Huh - that works?  They really haven't found out about your personal identities?  Is that more magic?"

Permalink

"It is. To use most of our powers, we first need to activate them, and when our powers are active people can't recognise us as the same people as when they're inactive by appearance or voice unless they already know we're the same people."

Permalink

Oh no.  What could spies or criminals do with that?

"I sure hope no one else has that magic."

Permalink

That'd actually let her - and people like her - have her own life without people like Mother objecting it's beneath a Milver or Uncle Parrolan objecting it's unsafe!

"Can you give out that magic!?"

Permalink

"We can't. We could if we could figure out how - Queen Serenity did, and we have the Silver Crystal - but we don't."

Permalink

"We don't know of anyone else with the same magic. It's not impossible, but magic is rare enough that most people didn't think it existed until last year, and even in the Silver Millennium, when magic was common, hardly anyone had powers like ours. That said, I wouldn't be too surprised if the Black Moon had people who could do something similar, considering the amount of magic they seem to have at their disposal. Plus balaclavas are cheap, and they can do the same thing with no magic needed."

"Balaclavas?  Like... the sweets?"

Permalink

"Can we talk with that computer model of your queen?  Or - who else would know about hyperspace?"

Permalink

"No, like, a knitted hat that covers your face? Criminals use them to conceal their identities sometimes. Even just a mask like Tuxedo Mask wears can make it hard to tell who someone is."

Permalink

"The Moon Palace is only within range of our teleportation for some of the Moon's orbit, so we'd need to check where it is in its orbit to make sure we can get there without landing ourselves in space."

Permalink

"Jadeite was able to travel into an alternate dimension similar to hyperspace, so if it's true that the Four Heavenly Kings have been resurrected he might be able to help with that. Aside from that, I don't expect anyone knows about it - if anyone did I'd expect it to be a physicist, but I wouldn't expect physicists to keep a discovery like that secret and if they didn't keep it secret I'd expect to have heard about it. The Black Moon people might know about it - the fact that they're pulling people out of alternate timelines shows they clearly know a lot about physics that the public doesn't."

Rinn glances back and forth, torn between her desire to see the Moon Palace and her desire to look around Old Earth.

After a moment, the Moon Palace wins.  "Can you check on the Moon Palace's orbit!?"

 

Permalink

"Yes... and... I'm concerned why the Black Moon faction would be suddenly revealing their advanced technology now.  Are they trying to do something unusually important for them?  And might they have any other secret tech?"

Permalink

At this point, a woman comes into the park and is immediately surprised by the sight of the Sailor Warriors.

"Sailor Warriors? Is something going on?"

Permalink

"Nothing you need to be afraid of, ma'am."

Permalink

"Oh, good - in that case, could I have your autographs, Sailor Moon and Sailor Venus? My children are big fans of yours."

Permalink

"Gladly. But in exchange, there's something you can do for us. Our enemies pulled these people into the present time from the distant future and we need somewhere for them to stay until we can find a way for them to get back. Our enemies will likely be looking for them, so you'll need to keep secret who they are and why they're staying with you. Can you do that?"

Permalink

"I suppose so. I don't have a guest bedroom, though, unless two of my kids are willing to share a room you'll need to sleep in our living room."

Permalink

"Oh, of course; thank you!"

That'll definitely be bigger than a spaceship cabin, at least, let alone an escape pod.

Permalink

"Thank you -"

Her tongue trips over the various polite terms of address she's trying for, and then she copies the Sailors' "Ma'am."

"I wouldn't want to cause problems for your kids."

The one thing she knows about Old Earth houses is "crowded."  But then it's probably not quite so crowded in this era?  Or was it more so?  She doesn't remember, and doesn't feel like pulling out her computer to ask in front of this woman.
