A Little Reminiscing

Day 9 - Favorite Character
Sailor Neptune

Hold on, this one's a little nerdy.

When I was around 9 or so I found out that Sailor Neptune existed.  I was young and hadn't yet known that manga was even a thing.  I just saw Sailor Moon as a cartoon.  I didn't even know what the word anime was yet.  I discovered Sailor Neptune when I was just learning about the internet.  Someone had one of those old copy and paste web pages with the midi file playing Moonlight Densetsu in the background (you know the type) and I remember looking through the pictures and there were Sailor Scouts that I'd never seen before.  I found Sailor Neptune one fine day when I was living in Montana.  I didn't know anything about her at all, so I began to delve into the Sailor Scout bios that people had written online.  She was smart, sweet, strong, and beautiful.  She was everything that appealed to me as a little girl...and she played the violin.  Just like me.

Eventually I began to read fan fiction.  I became so engrossed in fan fiction that somewhere in my house, to this day is a 3-inch binder FULL of stories and pictures that I printed off.  Sailor Neptune was my hero.  I even wrote fan fiction, none that I've saved.  All my drawings are always of Neptune.  All my fanart, everything.  I'm even making my daughter a Deep Aqua mirror for her room.

Hello, my name is Kari, I'm 25, and I am obsessed with Sailor Neptune.
