Falling into Tranquility by Antiquity-Dreams Falling into Tranquility by Antiquity-Dreams
These moments were rare, peace against the storm raging on, but they were blessed. The life of a solider was never easy and never at ease, yet once in a while they could find themselves in these bubbles of time that somehow remained untouched by turmoil. In these momentary lapses where they hid and dwelled for as long as they could against each other.

Because, they knew, it was quite possibly their last.

"It's alright Michru.. you can rest now."

Haruka was the stronger one, after all these years Michiru felt that she could handle any situation. Because when push came to shove, Haruka got the job done and when it came down to it, she wasn't afraid. Not of death or sacrifice because they had already been there and, wrapped in her arms, Michiru truly believed everything was going to be alright. So the fall wasn't hard, it was tranquil. Resting her head against her beloved, she closed her eyes and slowly, finally, let go.

Michiru found peace at last.

Uranus by :iconsupernovadobe:

Honestly, I'm so very happy to finally be able to debut this costume because Sailor Moon was my first anime and so much of it shaped my young life and ideals. I read/watched this anime/manga into the ground (lord knows I own the whole series twice over). And, honestly, Neptune was my idol and I always wanted to be like her while growing up. So.. When I finally got to cosplay her it was like a childhood dream come true. Not to mention I have a lovely Uranus to play with me *__*!

Oh how sweet childhood dreams are.

So sad.....and so beautiful! And just to say I'm really pleased for you that you got to cosplay something that means that much to you. It's funny...a lot of people don't because they're scared that cosplaying something they hold so close will somehow ruin it for them. I don't understand that - surely being able to express your admiration for something that's meant a great deal to you, no matter what it is, can only be a good thing. So yeah....very well done!!

Lol I get really determined to pay tribute to something I love so much. I figure... I love it and therefore I'm going to cosplay the hell out of it and I will do it well or not at all XD! At least, I that's the attitude. Reality is: I try very hard and hope it turns out well XD

I'm not going to lie - and I hope it doesn't bother you - but normally I don't care all that much for F/F cosplay or fiction (not that I'm against it, I'm not). This, however, has changed some of that - it is serene and beautiful. You can sense that it is a rare, peaceful moment for the two. This is one that will be added to my favorites.

You guys did a wonderful Sailor Moon cosplay at Sakura-con, I was so happy to see it! I didn't recognize all of you, and at first I was just like "O_O Ho shizz, I have to get a picture!" But you had to go somewhere, so oh well. You are always so busy! I think you all should take a year off cosplaying and go in disguise to a con so you can relax! xD

I love you two. Even if you get bashed on 4chan severely, I totally don't care. You seem to be nice and talented, so it simply doesn't matter to me. These people just don't have an own life or your talent, that's the only reason why the have to do such pathetic things. Really talented or beautiful people do not bash.

Oh thank you so very much. That's really (honestly)very sweet of you. CGL has always been a problem for us and the amount of haters it produces... well, I really don't understand. I sincerely try to be nice to everyone so I don't get why they project such a negative stereotype of me T__T *sighs* I don't think I'll ever get it but.. I guess it doesn't matter. For every hater out there, there is a even nicer person like you. Makes my day that much brighter <3

I'm really glad my words could help you. I simply think these haters all are really, really sad persons who want to be strong and see no alternative to be it than in bashing strong and beautiful people. You'll never understand because it's simply TOO weird. I'll also never understand in my heart. Just my mind said this to me and I know it speaks right. People'd never bash people when they're strong and happy with theirselves.

Ahh, I see. Thanks for the tip, I was wondering how you did it, it drives me nuts when my eyebrows don't match my wig color.

Beautiful picture! You portrayed an amazing Michiru - I was bummed I didn't get a picture of you guys! I saw you maybe 3-4 times, but I was always busy!! T_T ...epic fail.

Oh, well. Will you guys be cosplaying Sailor Moon down at FAnime this year?

Nope nope. Everyone and THEN some where there. I was just so busy that I didn't get the chance to really see anyone for longer than a minute O.o;

Welllll... I probably shouldn't say but..

ToS, ToA, Kuroshitsuji, Special Naruto costume - in that order.
