Usagi Tsukino, aka Serena, aka Sailor Moon, aka The Moon Princess, has enough aliases to be a rap superstar. Girlfriend also has a huge posse filled with gallant gals who will totally throw down if you look at her sideways. Don’t get it twisted, though. Sailor Moon is a social justice superstar of love and justice.
I am an immigrant to the South. I wasn’t particularly excited to move here from the bountiful northeastern seaboard, but there was money involved at the time, so here I am.

Winter fashion for the majority gender (that’s what we are, let’s embrace it) finally seems to have reached an apex of equal parts cute and functional.
