During the scene when Mulan decides to go to war instead of her father, she decides to do it while sitting on the foot of the Great Stone Dragon. The image of the dragon looking over Mulan is repeated several times throughout the sequence, and the bolts of lightning strike at significant times whenever the dragon is in sight. When Mulan takes her father’s scroll and when she is praying to her ancestors, the Great Stone Dragon can be seen. It is also engraved on the sword Mulan uses to cut her hair and the handles of the wardrobe containing the armor are in the shape of the dragon’s head. The dragon’s eyes glowing in the temple symbolizes Mulan’s role as protector of her family awakening, instead of the actual dragon.
The reason Mushu couldn’t wake the dragon is because the dragon was no longer there. Mulan is implied to be the Great Dragon that protects her family.
CHRIST HOW DID I MISS THAT AFTER ALL THESE YEARS
Ugh ever since 21th episode I wanted to draw Marco greeting Petra in heaven (or opening the heaven’s door for her) my ideas are so cheezy forgive me Q_Q
edit: ok I think I have to make one thing clear- I made Petra and Marco wear clothes that symbolize what they’ve been dreaming of- that’s why Petra is in wedding dress and Marco in military police uniform :)
WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO ME?!

Notes: Super cute series! Part one of three. I’m working on translating the other two, stay tuned!
Random additional notes: I actually had to cut panels 3&4, since Tumblr only lets me upload 10 images on any post. It’s just Petra waving her hands in front of the Captain to make sure he’s asleep. Take a look at the artist’s page for the full comic. ^_^
help. i’m drowning in an ocean of WHAT COULD BE BUT COULDN’T!!
