Forcing her eyes to open against the brightness of the room, she found herself in a bed in the healing center. She was alone, the bed to her right empty and tightly made. She swallowed, finding her mouth dry and her throat rather sore. She coughed, trying to clear her throat.
Fumbling for the bed control, she raised the head of her bed so she could sit up.
How had she gotten to the healing center, with its clean white walls and crystallized machinery? The last thing she could recall was the blinding light that accompanied destroying the entity in the false Galaxy Cauldron. Squinting at the control for the bed, she found it also had the control for the large television screen positioned in the corner of the room on the opposite wall, to her left. Turning it on, she dazedly watched a few commercials before the morning news came on. She learned

Power surged as the door opened. With a shout, Chibi Moon was knocked away from the others, her small form flying down the steps to land hard on the floor, rolling. Her momentum was stopped by the unconscious body of Rin, whose transformation had finally collapsed from the energy drain. Sailor Chibi Moon struggled to stand, one hand reaching out as she called to Illumina and Shadow Servant. The energy that had pushed her out seemed to rebound, forcing the two adults into the blinding light within the door, slamming it shut behind them.
Sailor Illumina made a harsh sound, grasping for the crystalline door handle as it vanished into the bright light that surrounded them. She stared at the spot where it had been before screaming in rage and beating her fists on the door before it also vanished. She spun on her heel, facing her teammate. They stared at each other through the glare, sharing grim expressions.
The light around them dimmed from blinding to just brig

Through the glimmering pink twilight, Teruko and Shadow Servant walked side by side. The energy left by the young princess had turned all of the jagged black crystals into softly glowing things that barely reached past their ankles. A clear path was etched through the crystals, a fine dust where the pink-haired girl and her accompanying Guardians had walked.
"This way, this way!" a high-pitched, giggling voice called. A small girl - perhaps just a small woman, her features tiny and pixie-like - bounded through the crystals to either side of them, causing the two older senshi to start. Her hair was a light blue, pulled up into a bun atop her head, with many tightly wrapped strands hanging down, ending in what appeared to be glass or acrylic balls of some sort. She wore a fuku boasting the style of the Sol senshi's Eternal form, in blues. Teruko blinked rapidly, wondering for a moment at who this could be.

"Are you certain you are all right working with me?" Anscom Noctis asked again as he and Teruko Kawarinaku walked side by side toward the Projection Room doors. The woman nodded, though her jaw was set and her lips pressed into a thin line. Her hair bounced behind her, tied into a high ponytail to keep it out of the way. She was dressed in a plain blue t-shirt and cargo pants, the pockets containing useful items such as her communicator, her brooch, and translator in case they ran into anyone who spoke anything other than English or Japanese.
Anscom walked tall beside her, dressed for once in a plain button down shirt in a dark teal and black jeans cinched with a shiny black belt with many chains and pouches hanging from it. His feather, used for transformation, was tied into his hair which he had pulled back into a ponytail as well.
"We have to learn to work together without my issues with you getting in the way," she responded, her soft voice firm. "We're regi
