Quick Mulan sketch in palette #80
— x —
A while back I drew this as part of a SW superhero!AU, with Mulan as the reincarnation of the sun goddess Xihe. Now heres the other half: Aurora as half fairy. She can wield magic, but its highly dependent on her emotional state. The fairy wings are a purely magical construction which she can use to fly only for short distances. Her specialty is dream magic, since a sleeping curse is what originally awakened her fairy side and it was the first magic she mastered.
Actually tbh its become much less of a superhero!AU and more of a supernatural/action/adventure!AU and its getting quite elaborate in my mind. Thinking about making it into a comic.
Also I should point out that the fairy!Aurora idea is heavily borrowed from this fic series by maggiemerc and I would be remiss if I didn’t point that out. (go read it, its fantastic)

Storybrooke AU: Noticing that Mulan has something (or someone) on her mind Ruby sits down and offers her some advice.
You’re new here, Aurora. Phillip trusted Lancelot. So must we.
"WHY AURORA WHYYYY"
"Aurora, I came out to have a good time, and I’m honestly feeling so attacked right now."
Soooo… my friend and I went to disneyland, and this happened.
Both being sleeping warrior shippers and conveniently Chinese, we naturally decided to take turns pretending to be Mulan.
We spent waaaayyyy too much time in the princess store.
"Aurora, I’m not sure this is entirely necessary…"
Mulan shifts on her cot (hers!) and tries not to breathe.
"Stop moving, Mulan. Do you want to freeze? You’re letting all the heat out! Aren’t you some kind of wilderness expert? Body heat is essential in situations such as these.”
It’s not close to being below freezing, and Mulan is actually feeling a bit warm (everywhere), but she does not voice another protest as Aurora snuggles closer, burying her face in Mulan’s neck.
Mulan prepares herself for a long night of zero sleep and a great many unwelcome thoughts.
