After going back to previous blogposts, I ran into Crossc36's Little Mermaid thing. I thought why not do it with Mulan so this idea came into spark. Not going to announce the characters because I will do that as I go. I'm starting with Reflection.
(Shine walks through a garden with a fancy dress on with too much make up)
Shine: (sings) Look at me, I will never pass for the perfect bride or a perfect princess. Can it be? (she lets a cricket jump off her finger) I'm not meant to play this part. (The cricket looks back as she walks across a bridge) Now I see if I were to truly to be myself I would break everybody's heart.(Shine looks down at the water) Who is that girl I see staring straight back at me? (she leans against a statue) Why is my reflection someone I don't know? (she looks back down at the river) Somehow I cannot hide who I am though I've tried. When will my reflection show who I am inside? (rubs the make up off her face and looks back at herself in the river) When will my reflection show who I am inside? (she takes down her hair and sits on a bench under a tree. Wander comes and joins her)
(she turns away)
Wander: Shine, just look at the beautiful day today. Don't you want to see for yourself?
(There are drums in the distance)
Shine: What is that?
Wander: War drums. Come with me.
