Debatable Love Triangle | Helios vs Peruru!
Chibiusa, Helios and Peruru comic strip! They had obstacles with trust and privacy that took a while to break. for wanting something of a 'realistic' relationship in a shoujo, Sailor Moon to boot; but this way, it's less squicky. Relationship: Chibiusa | Sailor Chibi Moon/Helios. Characters: I knew then that I could trust you completely and revealed to you my true form. Dedicated to the romance between Chibiusa and Helios (Pegasus) from Bishoujo Chibiusa kept it a secret and completely trusted him, even though he didn't tell encountered, which often involved the concepts of dreams and relationships.
I haven't yet rewatched them in the 90s anime version so I can't really say for sure. What appeals to me most about their relationship is how magical it is.
I mean, yeah, Helios is a Pegasus but it's much more than that. When Chibiusa first sees Helios, she's immediately drawn to him. As explained later, they're fated to be together. While it's admittedly a forceful way to pair up a couple, it somehow works because Chibiusa is so young and things such as fate and true love are so enchanting to girls that are within her age group. Not only that, but Helios is an undeniable gentleman. He's sweet and kind, which is something I believe young girls should look for in their romantic partners when they're daydreaming about their own prince charming.
Chibiusa x Helios is also set up in a way that is meant to parallel UsaMamo. Curiously enough, all relationships in Sailor Moon are set up to either contrast or compare to the main couple. She utterly trusts him, despite his being secretive and refusing to answer many of her questions. I use Elysion, but you could spell it Elysian, Elysium, etc.
Chibiusa and Helios
It was somewhat similar to the Judeo-Christian concepts of Heaven, in that the righteous and brave spirits of the departed resided there. In the series, it is depicted as a once beautiful and magical place ravaged by the destruction of the Dead Moon. It is implied that the place where Chibiusa meets Pegasus in her dreams is how Elysion is supposed to look. So when the Dead Moon begins to attack Elysion, Mamoru fell gravely ill.
In the manga, the illness is described as a shadow on his lung. Helios revealed that the shadow is a black rose growing within him and Mamoru. He warned the Senshi that if the Dead Moon are not stopped, both he and Mamoru would die. Seiya even ends up inviting herself into Usagi's home in episode Not only does she help herself to Usagi's food, shower and to Chibi Chibi's towel, she finds secretive ways to further shove Mamoru OUT of the picture.
While protecting Usagi from a town burglar seemed on the surface to be a noble idea, it actually gave Seiya all-to-easy access to Usagi's home, as Seiya thinks nothing of camping out on Usagi's lawn, while her parents, younger brother and Chibi Chibi are asleep.
Now again, Seiya's cover even to Taiki and Yaten is that she is searching for her princess, and with Usagi being called a princess, she can't tell if this is a disguise for Kakyuu or not, if Usagi really is her princess.
You would think that would be all Seiya needed, just to see Kakyuu again. But even after she is reunited with her princess. She fawns over Usagi like a remorseful spouse, in the arms of the woman she cheated on In fact, in the manga it is revealed that Kakyuu had her own lover, who Galaxia murdered and the more Seiya tried to hold onto and force herself onto Kakyuu, the more Kakyuu would just smile, and give her the "aren't you sweet" routine but being shot down by the most gentle princess in her life didn't deter Seiya too much.
Not getting to be with one prey, only drove Seiya to resume stalking another. In fact, in the manga it is revealed that Kakyuu had her own lover, who Galaxia murdered. And the more Seiya tried to hold onto and force herself onto Kakyuu, the more Kakyuu would just smile, and give her the "aren't you sweet" routine. But being shot down by the most gentle princess in her life didn't deter Seiya too much.
In both the anime and in the manga, Seiya continues pursuing Usagi, going so far as to kiss her, knowing that at this point, she had uncovered Usagi's tender, crybaby side.

She knew that Usagi had a soft heart, which was her main power point when using the Silver Crystal, but also her biggest weak spot, as Usagi's affections are easy to control much to the joy of any predator.
Easy to manipulate, Seiya knew she could play with Usagi's emotions, and work her like clay. But each time, Usagi would not kiss Seiya back.

Just seeing Seiya off with a grin or a polite nod. Fans who could not see that Seiya is manipulative, started clamoring for the chance that time would be altered, so that Usagi would forget her lover of two lifetimes, and just settle down with her stalker, and enjoy a new family with Seiya.

Toei Animation was all too eager to oblige. In fact critics have accused Toei Animation of glorifying this type of abuse. In episodeUsagi and Mamoru have two copies of the same family photo. The writers at Toei Animation realized that whether any of us like it or not, Seiya's male form is only a disguise.
Sure, she can be a father figure to Chibi Chibi if she tried, but ultimately, she will never father ANY children biologically. For Seiya and Usagi to be together, that means that Chibiusa would never be allowed to exist.
The more Seiya pushed herself onto Usagi, the less likely Chibiusa's existence became.
