Random Headcanon Thursday
Usagi has a tough time remembering things. That isn’t the headcanon, that’s just truth. The list of things she can’t remember is near infinite, such as homework and meeting times and chores and test answers and reminders to not forget things. Sometimes Usagi even forgets LUNCH, and that is just WRONG. (Everyone will have lunch available all the time when Usagi is queen, she’s already decided this.)
But one thing Usagi hasn’t forgotten as much as everyone thinks she has is the Silver Millennium. Not that she remembers everything. Nobody remembers everything. But she remembers.
She remembers the cuts and bruises Mercury tried but failed to cover up.
She remembers how Jupiter would sometimes limp when she walked and always brush it off with a smile.
She remembers when Mars disappeared for weeks and everybody was sad and worried but nobody would tell her anything.
She remembers when Venus’s beautiful face became scarred (but still beautiful) and how Venus would deflect every question about what happened.
She remembers knowing that all of this was because of her.
Usagi remembers, and it’s made her that much more determined to keep remembering. She has a notebook, a relatively small and unimpressive thing with a hard protective cover and one small heart sticker that she’s placed on the lower left corner. In that notebook, Usagi keeps a record.
Every fight. Every scratch. Every burn and bruise. Every dislocated shoulder they had to help each other push back into place. Every covert stitch given in darkened corners where no one would see.
Usagi writes it all down, every last drop of blood, and she never forgets.
