THE LEGEND OF SAILOR MOON
(North American Version)
The Time of the Silver Millennium
It was the time of the Silver Millennium, when all the planets were at peace. The Universe was a happy place and the Moon Kingdom was the happiest place of all. There were fireworks and parties every night and dancing and laughing. Queen Serenity, ruler of the Moon Kingdom raised her daughter Serena to follow in her footsteps and rule the moon, but most of the time Serena spent staring at the Earth for she had fallen in love with a young man from there. He was Prince Darien of Earth and he would come and confide in her about the terrible things happing on Earth and Evil Powers taking over there.
The Battle Has Begun.
Serena knew that Darien had to go and protect the Earth but by the time he would get back to Earth, all may already be over. This Queen Beryl came out of nowhere, no one knows where she came from, she was amazingly strong, almost unbeatable. The guards of the Moon Palace suspected everyone form Earth, so Darien had to leave but not before saying goodbye. She was so happy he came back. He couldn't leave without having one last dance with her. He explained to her that everything was going to change. Beryl was more dangerous then he thought. The whole Universe was in danger specially the Moon. Beryl wanted to rule the whole Universe, but to do that she first had to conquer the Moon. He warned Serena to prepare for the worst. Queen Serenity knew Prince Darien wasn't a spy and had asked him to stay and protect her kingdom.
You will always be in my heart.
Serena couldn't believe that all this was really happening. Queen Beryl was absolutely relentless and would destroy everything that was in her way to get exactly what she wanted. Darien proceeded to fight as hard as he could but he warned Serena that he might not come back. But he just wanted her to know how much she meant to him. They would swear to be in each other's heart always and kissed goodbye.
I will never join up with a snake like you!
The battle was then launched on the Moon Kingdom by Queen Beryl and her most devoted Generals under her control. The Sailor Scouts: Sailor Mercury, Sailor Mars, Sailor Jupiter and Sailor Venus tried to fight against Queen Beryl but without any success and were taken away by the Evil Forces. It was soon Princess Serena's turn but Prince Darien arrived just in time to protect her. Queen Beryl found herself very attracted to Darien and offered him to joined them and rule the whole Universe by her side. Disgusted, Darien refused to follow that snake and in instant was taken away, leaving Serena behind screaming "Run Serena, run". The Princess ran towards Darien and was also sucked in by the Evil Forces.
In the name of the Moon, you will be free.
Queen Serenity came forth to rescue them but it was to late, they had already fallen into a deep sleep, floating away from the Moon Kingdom. Queen Serenity could not let it end this way, she could not let them take her daughter's future away. So she took out the Imperium Silver Crystal and put it on her Wand for maximum power. The Queen's cat advisors, Luna and Artemis, reminded the Queen that if she used her Silver Crystal she wouldn't have any strength left but it was the only way. Queen Serenity had to sacrifice her kingdom if they were to regain their peace.
I will sacrifice my Kingdom for you, my dearest daughter.
So with the words "Cosmic Moon Power", she united all the energy of the Universe to get rid of the Evil Forces. She couldn't destroy them because she would have destroyed the others too, so she trapped them all inside the power of the Crystal and then she had to send them to a new future on Earth. Queen Serenity had saved them so Luna wondered why she looked so sad? It was because none of them would remember anything of that time or place again and worst of all, Queen Serenity would never see her sweet daughter again. But that was the only way for any of them to live on. She had enough power left to send everything they would need in the future on Earth. Serena and her Court would need the help of Luna and Artemis if the Negaverse were ever to break free.
Be happy. I will always be in your hearts.
All of them would live on Earth with no memory of the Moon Kingdom what so ever. But if Evil Forces should try to repeat what happened there, they would know what to do. And looking at the Crystal in her hand she said "Farewell, all of you and good luck. Goodbye Serena, you are in my heart always". The Imperium Silver Crystal released everyone and sent them to Earth. Queen Serenity then said "Be happy... on behalf of the Moon you will be free again". Queen Serenity fell into a deep sleep hoping that perhaps they would meet again. Dropping her Wand, Queen Serenity then captured Luna and Artemis to send them to a peaceful future on Earth.
And so the story begins...
