"And and you said that so long as I have you nothing bad will happen! Least not to me!" Oh god my heart. That one hurt. Really hurt. It’s so cute and sweet but ow.Yea, that was the line that was going through my head as I wast sketching it and I about cried each time it played through my head. I had to honestly stop a few times and look away because I could not take it.
AHHH SHUTTING UP!! ABOUT IT!! I AM SORRY!!

For reals though nothing brought me greater joy than looking into how happy they are as the family unit they became.

The squeals of pure joy I made reading this broke the sound barrier. I’m pretty sure. *ensues keyboard smashing from too many feels I cannot articulate properly at the moment*
I seriously about made myself cry from the feels I gave myself from this. Most because I know how the story ends for them…But for a time they were so happy! For a time this was them! Kino Mama and her Moon Baby! Sometimes baby moon! Sometimes other ridiculous cute names because Mako cannot settle on one! THEY ARE SO FUCKING CUTE TOGETHER AND I CANNOT HANDLE IT! LOOK AT IT!! I KNOW YOU DID BUT AUGGHHH I CAN’T HANDLE WHAT I HAVE CREATED!!!

(from my Little Usagi AU)
Mako is due to return home from a week long trip, she had gone off for some rigorous training. Their last battle was tough and she wanted to be ready and stronger still for the next one.
Little Usagi wanted to be sure she was ready for when Kino Mama returned home. So she had Mama Rei help her choose something super cute, Mama Rei did her one better and bought her a new outfit and ribbons for her hair. Also they could not forget the hair bauble. Little Usagi wanted to keep part of Kino Mama with her while she was gone.
Mama Rei is sitting quietly sipping her tea as Little Usa can barely contain herself. Running around the room and flopping on the couch in exasperation going: “WHY ISN’T SHE HERE YEEEEET!” Then resuming her rounds around the room. Once in a while climbing into Mama Rei’s lap and just sitting there arms folded face all a pout that Kino Mama still isn’t home. Then she would shift positions restlessly, nearly spilling Mama Rei’s tea countless times. They have done this song and dance before and so Mama Rei has mastered the timing of when to move her cup so that it could continue to hold its contents soundly. A few tears are shed as Little Usa just can’t contain all her emotions and so must share them the only way she knows how. For a few moments she is inconsolable before Mama Rei wraps her up in a gentle embrace and starts to hum soft sweet sounds in her ear. Soon words start to form and Little Usa is calmed once more.
"Calm down little one, she promised she would be home today and so return home today she shall. Don’t get yourself so worked up! Or you will end up falling asleep again before she gets here." Mama Rei says with a gentle smile upon her face. Little Usa sniffles, she did not want to fall asleep again. She was determined to stay awake till Kino Mama got home. Three times now she had fallen prey to sleepies before Kino Mama got home. Three times too many! Little Usa crosses her arms and puts on a face most fierce.
Mama Rei rests her chin upon Little Usa’s head and begins to sway the child back and forth while gently humming. Little feet begin to kick in and out in rhythm to the humming. The fierce face gave way to a smile as she joined her Mama Rei in humming. Slightly out of tune but a valiant effort.
Minutes later was that familiar sound. The sound of heavy steps running up the walkway leading to the door. Then three quick rings of the doorbell. That was the signal Little Usa came up to let her know when it was Kino Mama at the door. No reason other than little Usa wanted it and so it was done.
The young girl bolted from Mama Rei’s lap and stood in place just thrashing her arms everywhere, from her mouth spewing sounds of pure joy as she was overcome by her own happiness. She turned around to face Mama Rei again with this look of utter confusion and fear. Like she had just forgotten what she was doing but it was super important and she knew she had to do it BUT WHAT WAS IT.
Laughing to herself: “Go answer the door! She’s home! Go run and open the door for her!” Steady hands turned the child around and nudged her forward.
"KINO MAMA!!!" Little feet running as fast as they could, one stumble and fall, but she got back up and kept running. "KINO MAMA KINO MAMA KINO MAMAAAAAAAA!!"
By the door was a step stool so she could reach the handle. Sparring no time to reach and grab it the young one kicks it into place.
"KINO MAMA!!!!!!!" She jumped up and down a few times before she remembered she still had to open the door. With frantic little hands and sounds of distress and the door wouldn’t open due to her frantic scrabbling till finally open it came.
There stood Kino Mama, towering over her, all smiles and exuding nothing but love and joy from every inch of her. Her arms open wide.
"HUN BUN!!" Before she can reach down to embrace the young one, Little Usa jumps from her perch and begins running in circles around her Kino Mama. So happy and so ecstatic that remaining still is no longer possible. "KINO MAMA!" Over and over again she sings.
Laughing at this precious young girl running circles into the ground around her “Hold still so I can see you! Actually no hold still so I can hug you then see you.” Little Usa giggles and keeps running, then grabs the sleeves from the jacket tied around Mako’s waist and pulls making it twirl around and and round. Mako just stands and crosses her arms, unable to properly pout because she can’t stop smiling and laughing at this beautiful child. Finally as Little Usa makes another round, swift hands come down and pluck the child from the ground and toss her in the air. Usa squeals and then resumes her joyful giggles. Mako catches her and then spins around while holding Little Usaclose, her heart so overcome with love for this little one. She can feel her lower lip wibble and tears threaten to start falling. Sometimes she wonders how she grew to love this little one so much. One look at the little girl, just the sound of her laughter, and the love she so readily gives back ten fold and then some answered her question. How could she grow to love her so much? It’s simple, how could she not.
Little Usa clumsily makes her way to Mako’s shoulders and bounces gleefully from her perch. So much so that she slips backwards, hands quickly grab the ankles of the little one.
"You have to be more careful Honey B, or you might fall."
Little Usa just laughs and hugs her Kino Mama’s head.
"Nah uh! Cause I got you! And and you said that so long as I have you nothing bad will happen! Least not to me! Cause you are my Kino Mama and you loooove me and I am your Little Moon Baby—Or was it baby moon? So yea! That is what you said! So Nah uh!" The little one says nuzzling Mako’s head with her face.
Don’t cry. Do not cry. I am going to cry, Mako fights back tears and fails as a few begin to fall. Her heart cannot take loving this child and yet she does so completely.
"You know that I love you, do you love me My Little Moon Baby?" She knows she does, she just wants to hear it.
"Well of course Kino Mama! You silly! You big silly head! I love my Kino Mama! SOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!" Mako feels the tiny kiss Little Usa gives her atop her head. Mako smiles a smile that threatens breach the boarders of her face and then wipes away her tears of joy. Truly how could she not love this child, when the reality is she could only love her more. Even when she thinks she can’t, this little one finds ways to prove her wrong.
Rei watches the pair from inside. Knowing it would be about good half hour before they even made it inside the house. She smiles and sips her tea as she listens to their laughter.
Her smile fades. Truly she herself has never been happier than when she became a guardian of Little Usa, became an adoptive parent. Mako and her don’t always see eye in terms of parenting but they make it work. Nothing in her life has felt so right. Everything they all went through together lead to this. Being united with their little princess. Yet it nags sometimes, a certain thought. That no matter how right this feels, something still feels so wrong. Today it is nagging hard. Rei continues to watch the joyous pair outside and lets the sight of them so happy together ease her mind.
Not now she though, for now just let them be happy. For now just enjoy it. Her smile returns and she stands, nearly ready to go join them. She was not about to let that outfit she spent so long picking out for Little Usa go unnoticed. Nor how well she was able place the young ones hair in her favorite little pigtails complete with little buns. This was the best she has been able to do with them. She also could not deny feeling a tinge of jealousy at Mako getting little Usa kisses when Rei has had none today. This injustice will not stand. One final sip of tea before she sets her cup down and then finally she is ready to go join them.
This is not the finished sketch, I just wanted to share this part.
YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH I ADORE THESE TWO TOGETHER!
Kino Mama and her Moon Baby
I needed to see them happy.
