Y’all seem to like AU stuff so I thought I’d bring up one @usami-chan13 and I have via the ship in it, in stuff we do in RP on another site. This is (Xu) Jinji, a golden pheasant Scrooge met on a trip to China once, dropping in on her antiques shop looking for a particular artifact. It’s hard to tell in b/w but she’s male-patterned, something that can apparently happen to older pheasants, and while others mistake her for a male, Scrooge recognized it right off. He further impressed her with his knowledge and being able to speak her remote dialect of Chinese
because of course he could, and she impressed him by being able to see through his scheme of “just a simple old antiques hunter” and stand up to his attempts to… talk her down in price, we’ll call it >.> They got to talking, one thing led to another and eventually, a ship grew out of it.
…Probably not described the best, but I’m short on wording right now, sorry guys |D;
We’ve been playing it for about two years now, and I’m probably biased but damn I love these two. They’re the “one has what the other lacks” sort of ship: Scrooge gives Jinji expanded horizons and a boldness she otherwise wouldn’t have found; and Jinji reminds Scrooge that it’s okay to slow down, take life one day at a time sometimes. There’s a lot of material we’ve built up about them, and maybe someday I’ll do a post about the AU as a whole (incidentally, this is the same world my versions of adult nephews comes from, if you were to go back on the art tag). For now though, just gonna throw some shippy art at your face o/
