"Versal and Marginalia" by Estirose (G)

Fandom Category: Disney's Mulan
Pairing: Fa Mulan / Li Shang
Fic Title: Versal and Marginalia
Author: Estirose
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/142865
Rating/Warning(s): G
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: This fic captures a perfect blend of Disney optimisim (including Mulan's spirited grandmother) and Chinese propriety, as well as Mulan's comfort with herself and Shang's confusion about how to deal with her as a woman.  Like the movie's ending, it's open-ended, and Estirose allows for Mulan to contend with her conflicting duties and desires--to herself and her family, to China, and to Shang--without forcing a fate upon her.  It's more of a coda to the film than a follow-up, but it's worth a read.

Special Rec: 7/35
