Now This is How You Selfie by LaMissMoxie Now This is How You Selfie by LaMissMoxie
Liang Wei (a.k.a. Red Dragon) let out a large sigh as she collapsed on her recliner in the dark room. Kicking off her thigh high boots she muttered,"Another day, another...whatever..."

With her sister and partner, Cong, now on the side evil apparently, Liang was beginning to question her motivations for staying at  SHEILD. She enjoyed saving people and putting criminals in her place, but with the loss of her last close friend in this new land, Liang was feeling more alone than usual.

An obnoxious jingle from her cellphone broke her brooding trance. Liang didn't recognize it until she saw the spider icon. It had been a while since she'd heard from those pesky kids. After all, Liang was now well over the age limit for that new  SHEILD. Academy she'd heard about.
Curious about the message she opened it and saw it was a forward about some idiotic selfie contest the newly expanded gang was having at the moment. Over the next few hours, Liang amused herself with the entries that kept being forwarded. Some were funny, others were cool, while others, as in the case of Squirrel Girl, were mildly disturbing. For the first time in what felt like weeks, she was legitimately happy.

Finally unable to resist joining the fun, she put on the best pose she could muster and sent her own. The caption reading, "Now this is how you selfie ;p".

Finally back in the game with color! I missed them so much ;_; but if anything I think I'm a lot better at shading.

 Backstory:

        Liang was born from a long line of ancient mutants in China (thought to be some of the first in history) who could shape-shift into dragon-like creatures. Some were able to breathe fire, others could control lightning, water and earthquakes. Her family was wealthy and prestigious which drove them to make sure their descendants would be the same. They are extremely prideful of their heritage and see themselves above the rest of humanity. As a child Liang was trained to be a fierce warrior and to be highly competitive. Her future was to be a wife and child bearer to more dragons.  However, after seeing the horrible person she was supposed to wed, Liang decided to run away to be with her sister, Cong, in America.
      Cong had long since left to be a SHIELD agent in order to escape the family who disowned her. (Though her sister had not been born with the dragon mutation, she possessed superhuman reflexes, agility and endurance mutations which had made her quickly recruited.) At first Cong was fine with her sister's presence and even helped her to get a job with SHIELD. As Liang began to show more promise that herself, she became jealous and almost killed her during a mission. Cong has since gone over to the dark side and become a dangerous mercenary.
Liang is content with her new life as a hero of sorts, but still wishes she could fix her family relations. Although she cannot stand their actions and callous nature she still loves them - even her sister.
       Liang was previously assigned to the young Avengers with Spiderman and his team for a short while. Mostly on particularly dangerous criminals as they were beginning to learn how to become proper heroes. Nowadays she lives in her own apartment alone and on extended solitary missions frequently. Its a lonely road but someone has to do it.
