Summary by: Robin based on
translations by VKLL. First written 04.26.01.
In the Crown café, Usagi is sobbing over "Pegasus in the Moonlight",
a novel about a Pegasus that falls in love with a human lady who
denies his love. Unazuki says that she's read the novel and can see
why it became a best seller.
Rei is surprised that Usagi's read a novel since she only reads comics,
so it might snow (right now, it's summer). Usagi asks what Rei is
saying. She says Rei probably hasn't read the book. Rei sweatdrops.
Minako says she cried 10 times reading it, and Unazuki says she hopes
to experience a deep love like that. Ami agrees. Rei thinks that
Ami's read the book, too, so Rei's behind.
Chibi-usa wonders if the author's writing about the same Pegasus
Chibi-usa's seen. She then sees Makoto staring at the book.
Makoto is sitting with Usagi, Chibi-usa, Luna, and Diana on a bench. Makoto
laughs and says it's nothing serious, just that the author of the novel,
Takase Tomoko, was her classmate before she came to Juuban. The others are
surprised and look at the picture of Tomoko: Tomoko is the same age as
Makoto? Diana says there's a great difference between having talent and
no talent. Usagi sweatdrops and tells Diana not to say that.
Usagi asks Makoto why she didn't say anything before, and Makoto says
that it might seem like she was boasting about knowing a celebrity.
Usagi sweatdrops and says she might be right. Luna says that if Usagi
was in the same position, Usagi wouldn't have kept silent, and Chibi-usa
agrees. Usagi says Luna said too much.
Makoto says she encouraged Tomoko to apply for magazine awards. She used
to read Tomoko's stories and tell her her impressions; Tomoko worked hard
on writing since it cheered her up, and her first try, "Pegasus in the
Moonlight", was a big success. Makoto didn't get to celebrate with Tomoko
though since she transferred schools. Makoto looks a bit depressed.
Usagi says that they should go to Tomoko's place and get her autograph.
Makoto is uncertain, but Usagi says Tomoko wants to see Mako-chan too.
Luna says Usagi's the one who wants to see Tomoko, then Chibi-usa says
she wants to see Tomoko, to meet the person who writes such nice stories.
Makoto finally agrees to go. Chibi-usa and Usagi are happy.
At the Dead Moon Circus, Zirconia gives the Amazon Trio another
tongue-lashing for caring only about their looks and not about catching
Pegasus. Zircon, the flying eyeball, returns and gives Zirconia a picture.
She throws it at the Trio and tells them to go after this girl. Tigerseye
recognizes the girl, Tomoko, as a famous author. Hawkseye says he read
her novel: it was hilarious. Fisheye agrees; the part where the heroine
sacrifices herself to save the Pegasus was too horrible- Zirconia then
yells at them. Tigerseye agrees to go after Tomoko.
The senshi and the cats walk towards Tomoko's house. Minako says it's
surprising that Makoto knows Tomoko, but it's good to know a celebrity,
isn't it? Artemis sweatdrops and says that it's a "good friend" (not a
celebrity). Usagi says she bought a second book to be autographed.
Rei tells her that that's not enough. Usagi needs at least three copies
and takes out her three books. Usagi and Ami are surprised. Rei says
one is for outside use, another is for preservation, and the last one
is to show everyone else. Everyone sweatdrops as Rei laughs. They say
it's a bad habit, and Rei looks at them questioningly.
Makoto recognizes where they are. Tomoko's house is just around the
corner, and she runs ahead. The other girls comment that Makoto seems
happy. Minako says that it's because she'll get Tomoko's autograph.
Everyone else sweatdrops, and Artemis says that's not the reason.
Outside Tomoko's house is a gate; in front of the gate are many men and
women who are shouting. Tigerseye comes walking up in a tuxedo and
carrying a bouquet of flowers. He thinks that Tomoko must have many
male and female admirers, but he'll be the first one there. He then sees
all the people outside Tomoko's house and is shocked. He tries shoving
them out of the way, but then a fight starts.
Makoto asks the crowd what happened, and one of the men says that Tomoko
seems to have run away since the deadline has passed. Minako says Tomoko
must have run away from work. Makoto drops her box of goodies and says
that's not true, writing is all Tomoko has. She runs off.
Makoto sees Tomoko sitting against a tree in their usual spot. Makoto
calls Tomoko's name and goes to talk to her. Makoto asks Tomoko why
she ran off since she loves writing. Tomoko's dream was to write novels,
wasn't it? Tomoko says that she can't write anymore. Every time she
sits down to write, words don't come to her. She can't write anything
but "Pegasus in the Moonlight", and she has no more dreams. Tomoko runs
Tigerseye watches the scene from behind tall grasses. He says that
the girl is in a slump, so he has to change his plan. He then says
he's a bit cold, and it turns out he's sitting in water behind some
Makoto sits in the darkened Crown Fruit Parlor by herself. Unazuki,
Usagi, Chibi-usa, and the cats watch her. Unazuki asks if something
happened, and Usagi says, "Well... yes and no."
Makoto thinks that Tomoko has changed. She remembers how when she and
Tomoko first met, Tomoko was being bullied by some guys who were
throwing around her papers. Makoto yelled at them to stop, and they
ran off. Tomoko thanked Makoto, but Makoto said Tomoko should have
kicked the guys. She picked up the papers, then asked if Tomoko was in
her school. Tomoko said they were in the same class. Makoto was
embarrassed but said she just transferred. She then asked if the papers
were Tomoko's assignment; Tomoko said they were her manuscripts, and
Makoto started to read them. Tomoko protested that she just finished it
and hadn't showed it to anyone, but Makoto told her to be quiet.
They sat under the tree as Makoto finished reading it. When she was
done, she handed the story back to Tomoko and told her it was interesting.
Makoto said she hadn't been this involved in a story before, and she'd
read many novels. Tomoko thanked her for the compliment, but Makoto
said she didn't give compliments to people she just met. She said if
Tomoko wrote anything else, she'd have to let Makoto read it. She walked
away, and Tomoko thanked her.
Tomoko watched a handsome soccer player from behind a tree. Makoto
appeared, giving her a drink. Makoto said Tomoko must be interested in
that type of guy. Tomoko said that when she watched him, she could
think up many stories. Makoto asked her if she told that to the boy, but
Tomoko said he had many fans, so he wouldn't be interested in talking
to her. Makoto said that's why Tomoko should enter her stories for
magazine awards, so that if Tomoko becomes famous, the guy would surely
want to meet her. Tomoko was uncertain, but Makoto told her to trust
In the present, Usagi notices that Chibi-usa is gone.
Tomoko sits in her room, frustrated. There are many wads of paper on
the ground behind her, and she can't think of anything to write. Then
she hears a voice outside. It's Chibi-usa with Diana on her head.
Chibi-usa says that she's seen Pegasus, and she's happy that Tomoko has
the same dream as her. Tomoko is confused, but she closes the drapes
and sits on the ground, covering her ears.
Then Makoto yells at Tomoko. Diana and Chibi-usa are surprised to see
Usagi, Luna, and Makoto there, and Usagi tells Chibi-usa to let Makoto
handle this. Makoto asks if Tomoko's going to become that girl she was
before, the one who hid her manuscripts in her drawer and wouldn't let
anyone else read them. What Tomoko's dream was to let people read her
works, even if it was just one person, and what she's writing isn't
only for just Tomoko anymore.
The light turns on in Tomoko's room, and she opens the window. She
smiles at Makoto. Makoto smiles back.
Then Tigerseye appears behind Tomoko. Tomoko asks who he is. He hands
her a business card that says "Tigerseye" on it, and he introduces
himself as someone from Dead Publications. He says that a writer who
locks herself up in her room is the type to fall in love with her editor.
Then he transforms into his normal clothes. Tomoko screams.
Makoto transforms with "Jupiter Star Power, Make-Up", and Chibi-usa and
Usagi transform with "Moon Crisis, Make-Up."
Tomoko runs out onto the balcony with Tigerseye behind her. He tells her
to show him her beautiful dreams. He counts to three, and her dream
mirror comes out. Then Jupiter throws a "Sparkling Wide Pressure" at him,
which he dodges. Jupiter says she won't let him touch Tomoko.
Sailormoon and Chibimoon make a speech. He gets annoyed and calls out
his lemure, Tenko-chan.
Tenko-chan, a lemure with a bomb on its head, appears. It says it will
first chain the senshi. Its hair turns into chains, which ties the three
Sailor Senshi together. Jupiter is about to use "Supreme Thunder" when
Luna cries out for her to wait. Jupiter goes through with the attack
anyway, and the attack electrocutes all of them. Luna and Diana sweatdrop.
Tigerseye looks into Tomoko's mirror, but there's no Pegasus. He's
disappointed, especially since Zirconia picked Tomoko herself. Tigerseye
tells Tenko-chan to take care of the Sailor Soldiers.
Tenko-chan sets the timer of the bomb on its head and tosses it at the
Sailor Senshi. Sailormoon asks what it is, and Tenko-chan says it's
a time-bomb that will go off in two minutes. The Sailor Soldiers are
shocked and struggle. Tenko-chan laughs, then a rose flies by and breaks
through the chains. Tuxedo Kamen tells them that chains aren't fit for
beautiful ladies, only criminals and vicious dogs.
Jupiter throws the bomb at Tenko-chan. The blast knocks it into the
ground. Diana tells Chibimoon to go, and Chibimoon yells, "Twinkle Yell".
Pegasus appears, and Tomoko stares at it, saying, "This is... Pegasus?"
Tenko-chan climbs out of the ground, but Sailormoon's "Moon Gorgeous
Meditation" kills it. Tigerseye freaks out and vanishes.
Outside, Makoto asks if Tomoko is okay. Tomoko nods, then says she's seen
the real Pegasus. The others pretend to be surprised. Tomoko says that
having seen such a beautiful dream, she is sure she can write again.
Now, she'll write something for everybody. Everyone smiles. As they leave,
Tomoko shyly asks Makoto if she'll read her book when she's done. Makoto
says of course, she's the first one to read Tomoko's book. Tomoko smiles.
On the desk in Tomoko's room is a manuscript that says, "Illusion of Pegasus"
on it. On the next page, it says, "Dedicated to my best friend, Makoto,
and those who have beautiful dreams."
