ShangRAIN-La - An Unnecessary Crossover by JocelynSamara ShangRAIN-La - An Unnecessary Crossover by JocelynSamara
So, I wanted to post something about Shangri-La today. But when I realized it was April Fools Day, I decided I probably shouldn't post anything serious. It'd just get overlooked by whatever shenanigans DA tries to pull (which ironically, I haven't seen yet as of this posting).

Anyway, after actively deciding not to post anything "serious", I got this "silly" idea for a pseudo-Rain/Shangri-La crossover that is (hopefully) sure to please everybody. My initial thought was to put the Shangri-La characters in St. Hallvard uniforms. But being as strict with canon as I am, I was limited to Malcolm and Ellette (as they are the only Shangri-La protagonists of approximate high-school age).

This, in turn, led to the idea that they happen to have unnaturally colored "anime hair". Funny thing is, I don't typically use hair colors outside of the natural shades (without reason) for my characters. Typically, if I have a character like these two with blue or green hair, it actually is a dye job (and is probably mentioned in canon). But Malcolm and Ellette just... HAVE blue and green hair respectively. I dunno. It just fit. But their story is also fantasy, so I can just claim "fantasy logic and I said so". But let's say they leave Shangri-La (and the fantasy genre altogether), blending still presents a problem because of their hair.

The other funny thing, is how well these two would otherwise fit among the Rain cast. Malcolm's probably one of the horniest characters I've ever written. And Ellette's either very lesbian, or bisexual with very lesbian tendencies (even I've never been entirely clear on that one).

All that aside, I just think they look cute in the uniform. ^_^

Maybe next time, I'll strand Rain and her friends on Shangri-La. :XD:

The latest version thus far is the second demo [link]

Sorry, it's a little old and dated. But that's just one of many reasons production of the complete version has jumpstarted now. ^_^

Isn't Malcolm insulting groundhogs with that statement?

Upside down text! :stinkeye:

Anyway, I'm sure they haven't parted with their weapons. Or their armor. Or their entire inventory. They ARE heroes from an RPG after all, their weapons aren't visible unless their actually IN a fight. I don't know where they're carrying them in the meantime, but rest assured, if Shadowies attack the school, they'll suddenly be armed and ready. ^_^

It's a good thing they're not doing the "No equipment" run, or I'm sure they'd be thrown out of the school in a flash.

I'm reminded of a scene in Fruits Basket when Haru Sohma was being berated by the School President about his black and white hair color. As the School Prez was ranting about how his hair was an unnatural color, Haru drug him into the boys toilet and showed him just how natural his hair was!

Momiji Sohma in his innocence and amazement, wondered just what Haru had shown their fellow student while in the restroom.
