COMMENTS: Usagi is a whore with a heart of gold. Usagi is a high-class prostitute with a heart of gold. I'm not entirely sure why fanfics like this are so popular. Despite the lack of them here, Concubine Dollhouse notwithstanding, the truth of the matter is that there are plenty of these "heart of gold hookers" fanfics, though they aren't exactly obvious, especially not in the title.

Hence, my surprise when there is a fanfic with an apt title which suddenly appears. Aside from a title that just screams the content inside, we are given a story where Usagi is forced into prostitution due to her father losing his job, and she becomes Tokyo's best prostitute under the tutelage of an American pimp. More intriguing, despite the fact that she keeps going missing for hours at a time and is forced to do all sorts of disgusting, illegal things - including training an eleven year old - no one seems to suspect anything especially untold, not even when Usagi gives 30,000 "yen" (which would, despite the emphasis on amount, would only be something like thirty American dollars) to her mother for groceries. The worst she's suspected of is sleeping with her boyfriend, "Momoru".

In all honesty, any fanfic that has Usagi as a slut of any kind makes absolutely no sense to me. But fanfics that make Usagi not only a prostitute, but a prostitute that doesn't somehow fight back - especially when she had her friends and boyfriend - is somewhat silly. I seriously don't know why it's such a big deal to make Usagi a prostitute - it doesn't make a story any better or worse. (Granted, this is the same argument that my sister gives me regarding the difference between drinking Dr. Pepper and Diet Dr. Pepper - there apparently is no difference. But that is different because it's soda and trust me, there IS a difference.) This goes with making Usagi a lawyer, or a secretary. Whatever happened to making her a sailor senshi for a living? Inquiring minds want to know; in the meantime I'm going to buy some more bleach for my brain.
