Those Who Have Paved the Way. by caleigh Those Who Have Paved the Way. by caleigh
Took me all month, but at least I finished it. XD

My homage to the six senshi who (in my opinion) are some of the oldest and most influential of the online otaku fandom world. *please don't argue with me, that's not why i drew this- to start an argument!*

So, then, introductions please!! (L to R, please excuse my mistakes)

Sailor Orion, of Meaghan McCall, formerly of SailorOrion.com
Sailor Starfyre, of Crystalfyre, formerly of TheCrystalStars.com
Sailor Silver Dragon, mine.
Sailor Astera, of Sakura, of SailorAstera.com & *sakky-attack
Sailor Pandora, of Lori, of SailorPandora.com & *loriofpandora
and Sailor Sirius, of Sharliene, of Senshi of the Stars [link]

*no crits please, this is gift art*

Anyways, in honor of my 10th year online, here are some of the senshi that have made a huge influence on myself and others. ^_^ *bows*

brushes *redheadstock

PS. Afterthought... I realized we all used a LOT of black back then. ^^ Funny, isn't it?
PPS: You can download the full size version.

Whoa, I'm getting major nostalgia here. Orion and Starfyre were like some of the first SM fanfiction stuff I remember reading.

Oh my goooood this takes me back so long ago! I got my start on the CrystalStars' forums and I'm still good friends with many of the girls from the boards there. ;A;

We're all grownups now. Le sigh.

Wonderful homage, darling. :3

Oh! I'd never seen your senshi before now, I must admit it, but I do remember seeing good old Sailor Orion (which I was very fond of because she was the first blind senshi -in her civilian form, at least-), Sailor Astera (and I even started reading the fic but then I left the Otaku Senshi world so I never continued reading... I should start again now!), and Sailor Sirius, and strange as it might sound, I didn't actually take my Sirius's name or characteristics from there ^^U That's just a coincidence.
We love your senshi! (Better said, we love all otaku senshi! :D)

Looking at this again, it's just occurred to be how simple otaku senshi used to be. :3 Those Crystalstars were CRAZY with their outlandish outfits ;P

I know! All those CRAZY patterns... I mean my word! ^_^
Ah, looking at this again makes me realize senshi have to be so complicated now... so "fresh" and "original"... used to be you could just pick another color to go with black.
Those were the good ol' days. *sigh*

My gosh, where do I even begin? ^^; This is such a well-deserved and wonderful tribute to some of the first thought of otaku senshi out there, and I very much appreciate you giving them their due. I know all of them, of course...especially Sailor Sirius ;) and it's very true how they have influence not just Sailor Moon fanfiction, but have grown to inspire original stories, as I am doing right now. Your drawing is absolutely wonderful, and I do hope you do more tributes like this. Thanks love! :glomp:

I only know a few of these people. Crystalfire because there was a thread about her, Sakky because...well, she's Sakky, and Lori's on ToT too, isn't she? Or she was, anyway.

But that's it. >.<

Yeah, I started that thread about the Crystalstars at the Tower. ^^
These senshi are all really old, anywho. I have new senshi that I play with now... poor Silver Dragon. ><
