Wonder Woman + Sailor Moon: “Under the Eye of Planet X” – Chapter 4

Claws rang against Wonder Woman’s indestructible bracelets like a bell starting a title bout. Amazon and chimera grappled in a show of strength that cracked the earth beneath their feet. A putrid stink roared from the mutant’s jowls, but Diana of Themyscira did not waver.

“Sailor Moon!” she cried. “Get to safety! Now!”

But the heroine was frozen. She had to do more than run. How could she abandon an ally? She balled her fists, fighting to tear away. A part of her would love to hide, and cry, but her heart knew different.

But this was Wonder Woman asking! She was the real hero; smarter, faster, stronger in every sense. So why couldn’t Usagi just listen to her?

Planet X shimmered like a mirage, radiating discord on a cosmic scale. It emerged from the corners of the void more mysteriously than its intent, whether or not it was conscious. An ill wind blew, as though the elements themselves were attempting to flee. Continue reading “Wonder Woman + Sailor Moon: “Under the Eye of Planet X” – Chapter 4″

Wonder Woman + Sailor Moon: “Under the Eye of Planet X” – Chapter 3

There was a time – only minutes before, in fact – when Usagi’s biggest problems involved a low test score in English class. Oh, how she longed for so mild a struggle!

She sprinted down the hallway, driven by the flying beasts nipping at their heels. What were these things? And what did they want?

But there was no time for questions; not if she wanted to make it out in one piece!

Usagi jerked around a corner and vaulted down the stairwell. The part-bird, part-man, part-demon creatures broke away from the pursuit of her classmates, and concentrated their efforts on her.

Why?

Usagi cried. “I don’t want to be some bird-brain’s lunch meat!”

For every step she made they gained by two. Time was running short. Usagi wouldn’t even make the door! Continue reading “Wonder Woman + Sailor Moon: “Under the Eye of Planet X” – Chapter 3″

Wonder Woman + Sailor Moon: “Under the Eye of Planet X” – Chapter 2

Rei was far from the top student in her class, but she wasn’t a slacker, either. She scored average to above in most subjects, always turned in homework on time, and boasted a near-perfect attendance record; which was why it was strange that at eight fifteen on a weekday she was not at school, but at the Hikawa Shrine, where she served as a trainee priestess.

She raced to the temple, kicked away her shoes at the entrance and, still in her school uniform, made her way to the altar. 

It was there she found Yuichiro, the scruffy haired apprentice, still lighting incense as part of his own ritual. Rei ignored him and his surprise, and threw herself into prayer.

“Hey, uh, Rei? Shouldn’t you be in school?”

The girl did not deign to answer. Time was precious, and a wave of malevolence was mounting the likes of which she’d never felt. If that weren’t reason enough to cut class, then what was? Continue reading “Wonder Woman + Sailor Moon: “Under the Eye of Planet X” – Chapter 2″

Wonder Woman + Sailor Moon: “Under the Eye of Planet X” – Chapter 1

It was a dream more vivid than most, filled with the sense of a place; musty and dark, warm and confined. The weight of the earth above was bereft of forgiveness, and had to be so. Not even the amazons – she knew them to be amazons – though noble their intent, were granted quarter in this oppressive chamber; the cost of freedom being too great for mortals to bear.

Two by two, they lined the cavern leading to the gates, and watched without blinking. The smell was more pungent here, almost rank, acrid, like spoiled eggs, enough to turn most stomachs. But the warriors did not flinch. They were resolute, and chiseled like the pillars along the confines of the cave.

Behind the doors stood flame and torment. Its name all but hissed at them through the cracks; ‘Tartarus’ – home of the wretched, plunging as far beneath the ground as Olympus reached high. It was there that the wicked tasted the fruits of their deeds a thousand times over, and from which a few, irrepressible spirits sometimes returned, dragging damnation with them.

After a millenia, one such spirit was on the cusp of freedom. A cosmic sickness called to her, and would not be denied. Continue reading “Wonder Woman + Sailor Moon: “Under the Eye of Planet X” – Chapter 1″

NEW: Wonder Woman + Sailor Moon

Hi friends,

Maybe you’ve noticed, maybe you haven’t, but a brand new banner has appeared on the fan fiction page.

I’ve been sitting on this project for a few months, but now it’s ready to meet the world – all twelve parts, starting this Wednesday.

That’s right! Wonder Woman and Sailor Moon! Together at last!

You’d think there’d be a ton of stories about these two on the internet, but I’ve only found a handful – and only one in the action/adventure genre.

“Under the Eye of Planet X” follows Usagi’s first meeting with the amazon princess, and all the complications following an ancient evil that binds their lineage.

Since I don’t own the copyright for either character, I won’t be charged per post on my Patreon. However, friends are encouraged to become patrons regardless, because a writer’s got to eat.

Hope you’re all as excited as I am!

Love and laughs,
Miranda Sparks

DC Omega: Wonder Woman #7 – ‘The Path of Warriors’ (Part 1)

Friends, I’ve been a very naughty girl.

Between issues of Glimmer Girl I’ve been writing fan fiction: specifically a monthly Wonder Woman title as part of a fan site, DC Omega.

You should absolutely head over, enjoy the series, and NOT contribute to my Patreon. Why? Because the characters don’t belong to me, and it would be wrong to profit from it. This is just for fun!

Please enjoy.

For Diana, former Princess of the Amazons, the appraisal of others had long been custom. As a child, the only of her kind among grown women, her mere existence attracted the attention of sister and stranger alike. They watched with a vested interest as she grew from a babe to a girl, and to a young woman. So familiar was she with their interest that it fell from her notice; at least until she locked eyes with a shy voyeur.

She smiled a friendly smile, as did the young man who averted his gaze. To be regarded by an unfamiliar sex remained a novelty. Though time would surely dull that notion, Diana remained certain of surprises yet to come, for good and for ill.
