[23:06] <SpeedRcrX> Hmm, Timesage wrote in with a question:

SpeedRcrX pasted:
My question still remains. If we have the Sailor Quartet, 3 out of 4 are named for ASTEROIDS, which are even smaller than a dwarf planet/Plutoid and they're still senshi, why is Sets not one. Also one of the Quartet joined her in this classification. Did she lose her powers in this?
[23:07] <SpeedRcrX> Anyone got an answer?
[23:07] <@Sakura Xadium Aino> I do!!
[23:08] <@Sakura Xadium Aino> The Asteroid Senshi were *always* Asteroids, and so their power level remains firmly fixed at that precise point- that of Asteroids.
[23:09] <// J_Daito //> LOL the "B-Team" of Sailor Senshi
[23:09] <@Sakura Xadium Aino> Well.. Cere-Cere actually gains a power BOOST because she's been made a class of her own
[23:10] <Mizunomics01> Ceres was moved out of the minor planet (aka. asteroid) category because of its size, shape - almost perfect sphere - and mass; it almost weighs as much as all the other main belt asteroids combined. This was all decided in 2006.
[23:10] <@Sakura Xadium Aino> (No one talks about them here because the Asteroid Senshi don't come here)
[23:10] <@Sakura Xadium Aino> As for Puu-P
[23:10] <// J_Daito //> lol Poopy
[23:11] <@Sakura Xadium Aino> She started out a major planet, and her base power level was predicated on that plateau of public perception.
[23:12] <@Sakura Xadium Aino> Once she lost that recognition, her power base fell below the critical mass needed to sustain her "Planet Power" if you'll allow a dubious dubism.
[23:15] <@Sakura Xadium Aino> Think of it this way: Asteroid Senshi were made to run on AA batteries. They still have 'em, so they're good. Cere-Cere runs on three now instead of two. Pluto was made to run on 9 volts, but now she can only get two AA's worth of power, so she's useless.
[23:16] <@Sakura Xadium Aino> Hope this helps!
[23:17] <SpeedRcrX> ... Man I KNOW we're like nothing more than f[BLEEP]king batteries for Sailor Moon but did you have to make it QUITE so explicit ><
