Kismet Senshi - Fated Guardians
As Fate would have it, our story begins at the end. Queen Serenity has passed on her crown to her only daughter and though the Queen is eternal, her, her consort, and her guardians decide it's time for them to rest. Not wanting to reset, they entomb themselves in crystal to be awoken again when the time is right or when they are needed. In the meantime, Neo Queen Serenity is now Neo Queen Serenity II. Her and Helios rule and are guarded by the Asteroid Senshi.
However, a Dark Force looms. Chaos is no longer a threat, but an ally. This new truce stirs up other, darker energies, that would sway the balance of peace.
The Dark Master, a Giant dragon, one said to guard earth, consumed so much within it's life that it grew and grew until finally it surrounded all of the Cosmos. It was no longer content to stay dormant, and instead, began to slither out amongst the Stars, seeking those who hungered for more. As Dark Matter consumed ancient galaxies and star systems, the Dark Master found their way to the Milky Way.
No longer guarded as it once was, Neo Queen Serenity II calls to arms, but none are left to answer. She considers waking her parents, but knows they need the rest. She also knows that they did what they could, with what they had and always prevailed with the power of love.
Her Guardians surrounded her and Helios as they tried to figure out what they must do.
"There are untold stars and planets within our own Galaxy...they could be ordained as Senshi..." Helios suggested.
Neo Queen Serenity II considered this and felt within her heart, this could be it, but only one problem arose.
"If they were meant to be senshi, they would have starseeds and they would have answered our summons."
Sailor Pallas steps forward, "Or maybe they just need to be woken up? Every star and every planet has a Starseed, but maybe not a host to usher it?"
Sailor Vesta steps forward, "And there is one that has been spoken of but never seen. A moon of Saturn said to protect starseeds and escort them to their bearers."
Serenity looks to her sharply and breathes in, "Sailor Dione... I've only read of her once and it was...a rumor if that. Cosmos has always been the creator.."
Sailor Juno nods, "But, she can't be every where at once. It is said that when new stars are born, Sailor Dione protects their starseed and takes it to the one who would carry it in their hearts. Though we've all been awoken, it is said that at some point, Sailor Dione found us and made sure we woke up when we were needed. We never knew it was her, but I hear when she comes in contact with a sleeping senshi, her touch awakens them."
Serenity chews on her lip, but is startled out of her thoughts as Helios holds her hand, "It's worth a shot my Queen."
She sighs, rubbing her forehead, "It is, but, if it were meant to be, why did she not answer our summons?"
A flash of white, dazzling light that threw blue and purple shadows across the room, almost blinded the occupants. At shadowed figure stepped out of the star come to life, and holding her scythe, smiled at those within.
"It's usually because one has to say "I wish" for me to hear."
They all gasp and Sailor Ceres steps forward protectively, "Who..how??"
The Lone Senshi nods, bowing slightly, "I am Sailor Dione. My Queen had sent me the summons, but as I was far away, I could not make it immediately. That is until your Majesty just said "I wish I could summon her here now." So, here I am."
Serenity, not wanting to waste a moment runs to Sailor Dione clasping her hands, "What should I do? How can we gather more Senshi? There's hundreds of planets and stars within our own galaxy and yet none have senshi. Can...can we ordain new ones?"
Sailor Dione smiles, her white hair floating on an ethereal wind.
"We can. I am here to grant your wish. As fate would have it, Cosmos has always had a fail safe put in place just for this kind of occasion. You have within your midst primordial planets and stars that have starseeds with no Guardian. If you wish it to be so, I will, as the Keeper of Stars, bring them to their rightful place."
Serenity's eyes brimmed with tears, "YES! please! I need all the help I can get without taxing mama and papa more than I already have!"
Sailor Dione bows, "Your wish is my command. They will not all come at once, but when they do, they will need to be taught. I suggest that considering the sheer amount of soldiers we are about to awaken, that you form an Academy to help train them."
All of the figures nod.
"All of the recipients will be here on earth, but some will come from other planets in our Galaxy not yet traversed. They may come to you, or, the Dark Master might target them before I can get to them in time, but you will know based on a star that lights up on their forehead."
Serenity nods, "Just like the original senshi.."
Sailor Dione smiles, "Correct. Protect them until I can usher them their Starseed. The others I can find before the Dark Master, will come to you. Their symbol will not fade until one of your Guardians Beasts can give them their wand."
Serenity nods again, "Thank you."
The lone senshi smiles, and begins to walk away as a small star slowly grows and as bright as it was before she entered, she replies, "I live to serve. From Beginning to End and back again."
Serenity and her court spent no time in getting the Academy set up. The Sailor Quartet were no impromptu instructors and Princess Saturn returned from her secret mission, back to the side of her Queen. They would prepare and hopefully, cleanse the Dark Master of his evil intent and hopefully wrangle chaos into helping.
It wasn't long before the first Senshi arrived.
Serenity received her gratefully and seeing her symbol, nodded to Diana. The grey cat leapt, and in the air formed a henshin wand. The girl grabbed it and without hesitation began to transform.
"Star Crystal Power, MAKE UP!"
And on this day, the first Kismet Senshi was born: Sailor Starchaser.
Others would come and as they did Serenity noted they all bore the Star name. Sailor Starstruck. Sailor Starfall. Sailor Starflare. Sailor Starshine.
Serenity had no idea how many would come, but they were ready. Hoshi Academy was awaiting them all and one by one, they would prevail!
