ShangRAIN-La - An Unnecessary Crossover



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:
