Usagi's chair came down and she came to her feet. "Yes, my liege!"
she said, saluting. "The warriors of Nan-Jahar stand ready. The
barbarian hordes of Al-Amherac shall die on the plains of Nagahla
under the hooves of our horses! We will slaughter them like pigs,
loot their houses and amuse ourselves with their women! For the glory
The president nodded, deciding that he probably shouldn't think about
that too hard. "Er, thank you, Miss Tsukino, but I was wondering
about your homeroom's plans for the Spring Festival."
% Usagi: We're going for a Conan, thing.
"Right, Mammy-chan. Anyways, pretending you're straight for a moment,
what would you prefer? Ami no cleavage? Or . . ." She pulled down the
collar of Ami's school blouse. "Ami cleavage?"
% Heh. She's the friend from Hell, all right.
Mamoru's mouth opened and closed a few times as he stared at her.
"Wha--what do you mean, 'pretending that I'm straight'?"
"Well, look at you. Gray pants, black turtleneck with a green suit
% Mamaru: I was raised by two homosexuals, all right. I have fashion
sense. But I am *not* gay.

"Something about how it makes you a low-rent Batman, but that's
beside the point."
"It is the point. Sailor Moon is a mental case and Tsukino is . . ."
he trailed off as he realized the same term could apply to Tsukino as
well. "No," he said at last, shaking his head. "I don't see it."
% Heh. Amusing. Nice character interactions in this thing.
He returned the bow. "Makato James Wantanbe. M.J. to my friends.
Pleased to meet you."
% Heh. Now will he say 'Say, guess what, Tigress, you hit the jackpot'

Betty Banner had the most amazing mouth. Bruce Banner knew this
because she was currently seated astride him as he reclined in the
furo and using that mouth right where his neck met his shoulder.

"It's metal with surprising conductivity, especially with sound and
rare enough to make Gold look like copper," Fury explained. "At the
time, King T'Challa, newly crowned, sold off five pounds of it and
made himself rich. Used it to send himself and others to schools
around the world and they came home and turned their nation into a
fortress. Wakanda is sitting on an estimated four billion tons of
Vibranium and they don't like outsiders."

"Motherfucking piss ball damn it all to hell," Flash swore as she
started after him only to be stopped by Ami's hand on her wrist.
"Sonuva bitch, Ami, what is it? He knows! He's a threat to us!"
"He's not a danger," Ami said. "He won't tell."
"What makes you so sure?" Flash demanded.
% He wouldn't have told you to your face he knows your identities if he
were going to do something about it.
Flash crossed her arms and glowered at anyone who came near them.
Usagi spent the trip chatting with a fat kid with bad skin and even
worse hair. Their conversation apparently revolved around analyzing
an ecchi hentai series on an artistic level and searching for meaning
"Porn is an art form too," was Usagi's response when Flash gave her
look as they left the train in Shinjuku. "What? You can't masturbate
and find inspiration at the same time?"
% Hahahaha! That's a beautiful line.
Flash opened and shut her
mouth several times and Usagi sighed. "Flash, you need to get laid."
"That's what got me into this mess!" Flash snarled.
% Yes, yes it was.
Usagi shrugged. "Monthly appointments at the best hair salon in
Tokyo. They wash, dry and pile about five tons of hair care products
in it. I keep it in the 'meatballs' because its the only way I can
wear it without tripping on it, the sheer weight giving me a
headache, or pulling me off balance. I haven't cut it since the night
my Mom died at Okinawa." She held up her hand, palm up and then
tipped it, as though pouring something. "She came up with the style;
thought it looked cute. I kept wearing it like this in her memory, at
least at first, now . . ." she shrugged. "It confers on me my powers

Then, when the ship was only half an hour from the dock, the radio
crackled to life. "Colonel, this is Decoy, the ducks are at the lake.
Decoy was the code name given to three S.H.I.E.L.D. agents who,
disguised as the Senshi and Spiderwoman would confront the youma when
they attacked somewhere in Tokyo.

"And your being here with all these soldiers?" Magnetite said through
gritted teeth as she realized that it was all falling apart."
"You fool. You idiot." With each word came agony too great to
describe. Beryl collapsed to the floor of her throne room, smoke
rising from her skin as Metallia berated her, flaying her with pain
as she spoke.
"Not only has your grand scheme for dealing with Sailor Moon been
broken, but the Sorcerer Supreme is aware of us! How much more clumsy
can you possibly be?"
Beryl: A great deal if I'm being tortured. But if I'm not, I might be
able to kill them.
