If someone had told me Mulan would end up leading the Huns and becoming one of their own and marrying the Shanyuu I would have laughed my ass off. But reading this, I'm again astounded at the wonders fiction, and fanfiction, can do. The world building was great, the plot makes sense and most of all the characters and their background stories and motives are all superbly dealt with. In here, Bataar was no longer a random Disney villain. No, he and the Han culture and history became something so much more. Rich, alive and most of all believable. You have created a wonderfully believable and deep story out of a classic movie and myth. I especially loved the cultural differences the two races had and more than that, how their history and differences slowly became melded into one that was mulans chosen fate. It reminds of Mongol or Tibetan customs and *cough* yeah the game of thrones horse tribes. Certain times I'm just matching similarities to a certain Mother of three dragons*cough*. I love the relationships Mulan cultivates and changing dynamics with each of the characters, and how her marriage with Bataar is out of respect as equals. It adds to the believability of the story considering the timeline. And no doubt, back in ancient China without the Disney fanfare, she wouldn't have gained her freedom in the Chinese dynasty as she would be happier in the open grasslands. Bravo! This is the epitome of world building, ingenious characterization and plot ravelling. Often times, it felt I wasn't just reading a fanfic.

This story was AMAZING! I know you finished it years ago but I still thought I would tell you that people are still enjoying it. I loved the characters. They were true to the movie but still had your own flair on them. It was so much fun seeing into the Hun world.
Also, the two of you worked together amazingly! I occasionally write with friends and we are never on the same page. Collaborations are hard but you two pulled it off amazingly.
Thanks for the time you put into this and welcome to my favorite author list.

Oh dear lord…. as a OTP Mulan/Shang shipper…. what am i doing. But then again, I am always open to other potential ships or rather certain pairings within certain fanfics! XD

This was sooo amazing to read. Like seriously, so different to anything I've ever read before. If the real Mulan was aimed at older people, I think this storyline would be fantastic. It would work, and I'd probably go to see it a few times. Well done!

That was so exciting. Bataar definitely didn't see that coming.

For a story that retains a lot of themes that were in the original movie, the outcome is far more realistic. And author(s), you've managed to confuse me, whether I should be disappointed or delighted at the ending? None the less, this story has one of the best realistic-inclined plot I've ever come across in .

Ooookie dokie. Yep. You've mentioned it...a George R. R. Martin fan." And...as I've kinda become attached to this story, PLUS you admitted your admiration for our Mister Martin, I could only hope that the plot won't grow predictable. Only hoping, though. I'm reading this story with a 'complete' tag on. Nothing will be changed as far as I'm concerned. It's been nice this far

Was it just me...or did you gain some of your inspiration from George R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones? After reading 8 chapters I just couldn't ignore some similarities between Mulan's and Daenerys Targaryen's situations...

It took me a few chapters to really get into this story, but I'm actually really enjoying it now. You wrote Mushu excellently, by the way. Really, really well done on how well this story is planned and written. A lot of research must have gone into this.

I have to admit, I never considered the idea of shipping Mulan with Shanyu. But after reading this story I’m all for that couple. This story was just brilliant, one of the best I have read so far in all my time and I just can’t say how much I enjoyed reading it.
The world buidling around the Huns was great and I love how you brought in historical facts to make the story more credible.
I especially loved Old Moon as character. He was the best of them all, concerning the Huns, and I love how he is the comical relief of the whole story.
But I also like how you made Shanyu seem more like a human being and not just the murderer that we get to see in the movie. As well as the other Huns, who have families and friends which gives them so much more depth than they have in the movie. I also quite liked the twins, Gaitan and Batu. I can really picture them being like this at home.
And the plot with the whole shaman and ghoul-possessedness is just great.
This story had everything I could have asked for, ranging from humor to romance, even comfort, and action.
And I have to say that Hachin: Seasons is also quite enjoyable to read, especially the part where Shanyu doesn’t know how to deal with Mulan’s crying. Just imagining the great Hun leader being scraed off by a crying woman is funny.
I really look forward to the sequel of this story and hope it’ll be just as great and brilliant as this one.
Great work and keep it going! ;))

Cool story! Loved it!

Was Mulan and baarta sleeping with each other and is she the one that said Father please forgive in the back of mind thoughts? I was just confused on that part but your story is totally awesome. I am 15 years old

This fanficion is one of the best I ever read. Especially in this fandom. If Disney could be moved to do so, you really could sell it and it would be a bestseller.
You and your beta did an amazing job here. And for free! I really couldn't get enough of it and read it in one go like a good book. I'm still flashed and I like the open end- Many possibilities to come and my own fantasy is spinning right now.
I loved the way your story put me under its spell. And you can't imagine to see and feel that it is indeed completed, as great long stories tend to be abandoned. I saw on your profile that you didn't update since 2014 but I thought I had to write a comment at least at the last chapter. It sure is sad, that there is no real sequel but the story stands good on its own. It is an ending not quite like fairytales happily-ever-after but it also wasn't expected. I'm a real fan of your writing. It captivated me and I hope to find other good stories now when I go browsing your profile.
Thank you, JuceBi

Thanks for the story; I thoroughly enjoyed it! Would you ever consider an epilogue so that we could see how you envision the children Mulan and Bataar would have?

Wonderful story, thought I was expecting a true romance ;)
