Sailor Moon: The New Order (RP)
I'm not ready for this.
Chibiusa had told herself this a grand total of twenty times that night. This repetition had cemented in the Pinkette's mind that there was no way she was ready to take on such a huge responsibility. She wasn't ready, she couldn't do it, she would fail.
But she had to. Neo-Queen Serenity had passed away five days ago, thankfully in her sleep, and was just entombed a day ago. Chibiusa had to admit, her father had taken the whole ceremony quite well. He went from being so broken over her body, to a stone, silent acceptance at her funeral. Perhaps he realized that Usagi would have wanted him to pull-through, or maybe he decided to be strong for his daughter. It certainly helped, as Chibiusa still wasn't done crying.
With that depressing thought in mind, the princess sunk lower on the railing of her balcony. With the passing of well-loved royalty came the expectations of many. As soon as her mother was gone, she was "informed" that she was to be the new ruler of the kingdom. She protested that her father was still alive, and still very capable of taking care of the kingdom, but was "informed again" that couldn't happen.
"The Kingdom must be protected by the Silver Ginzuishou," she repeated, "and the queen bequeathed it to you."
Thus, yet again, "I'm not ready for this."
She drew back up to her full height, similar to her mother as a teenager, and tugged at her long pink pigtails. Vaguely, she remembered that she wasn't the only one gaining a new title. Her good friends, a few years younger than her, would be given their mother's guardian powers today. The passing of such monumental abilities seemed like a bigger responsibility, or maybe on the exact level. It sounded heck'ov'a lot easier, either way.
Maybe I can check on them... She thought, a smile coming back to her lips, before she gathered her dress. She turned on her heels, and darted from her room, down the stairs. Thankfully, of all things she inherited from mama, clumsiness wasn't one of them.
