Ami is smart. Ami is super smart. THIS MEANS SHE WILL BE GOOD IN A SCAVENGER HUNT MINAKO HAS HER EYE ON THE PRIZE
She immediately runs to Ami and isn’t like “Hey, Ami, want to be on my team?”
AMI DOES NOT GET A SAY
AMI GETS LIFTED OFF THE FUCKING GROUND AND CARRIED AWAY
POSSESSION IS WORTH NINE-TENTHS OF THE BUSH (Minako would doubtless say) AND I OWN YOUR 300 IQ
Meanwhile Usagi with EVERY DELIGHTFUL BIT OF ENTHUSIASM makes a beeline for Rei. What is most beautiful about this is how it compares to Minako’s selection process. For Minako it’s “AMI IS ON MY TEAM BECAUSE AMI IS SMART”.
For Usagi it’s “REI IS ON MY TEAM BECAUSE REI”.
AND TRULY THAT IS THE MOST GLORIOUS AND PERFECT REASONING OF THEM ALL
Made only that much sweeter by Rei’s fucking face.
INCLUDING YANKING HER TO THE GROUND
And I feel confident that, as Usagi looks down at her, she’s like “Did you find something already?? OH MY GOD REI-CHAN YOU ARE THE BEST”
Something else excellent, that I’m not able to cap very well unfortunately, is that when they first say “We’re going to have a scavenger hunt”, Ami looks at Rei and nods. Then when they said “Form teams”, Rei makes what looks to be a little “you and me?” hand gesture to Ami, and Ami again nods emphatically.
AMI AND REI HAD THIS SHIT SETTLED
NICE AND AMICABLE AND MUTUAL
THEY WERE GOING TO WORK TOGETHER AND IT WOULD BE CALM AND METHODICAL AND UTTERLY SUCCESSFUL
AND MINAKO AND USAGI WRECKED THAT SHIT IMMEDIATELY
One more thing, because I must apologize for everything that I am. And that thing is FUCKING HARUKA. I’ll try my best to show this. But as the announcement goes out to form teams, HARUKA STARTS DOING THIS FOOTBALL DEFENSIVE TACKLE SHIT
“Form teams!’ and she’s WHAT THE FUCK
TEAMS OH SHIT
She hears Minako cheer and sees Minako run
HARUKA IS ON THE MOVE
RUSHING TO BLOCK HER FROM MICHIRU
Because of COURSE Minako would want to be partners with Michiru.
She’s so beautiful and smart and talented and perfect and
EVERYONE wants to be partners with Michiru!
We don’t get to see it, at least not yet, but I choose to believe that Haruka’s relief that Minako and Usagi have different targets in mind gives way almost immediately to offense that they didn’t go for Michiru after all.
BASICALLY THIS MOMENT IS DIVINE AND WHATEVER ELSE THIS WEEK MY LIFE IS BETTER FOR HAVING WITNESSED ALL OF THIS
Old sketch that I finally got to finish, or kind of finish. I had been neglecting on finishing this because I honestly had no clue how to do it. I wanted to use watercolors but the truth is I don’t really know how to use them. They are very frustrating D:
I’m just gonna call this an experimental piece lol.
