Mulan tugged nervously at the collar of her dress, careful not to muss up the make-up which had been slathered on her face. She popped her lips together, barely resisting the urge to chew on the lower one.

This is for your country.

That is what she was told... and what she continued to tell herself. But this is what her country really wanted for her? She stood in an elaborate room, someplace far away from home. The ride across the ocean had been hell, everything about this trip had been hell. She preferred the rigors of the army over this. She had been treated as a princess. She had been trussed up, dolled up, and prepped to meet an emperor... someone she had never heard of before.

And she was supposed to marry him?

All she had been told before being whisked away to this foreign country was that it would be good for her country and it's people. Something about diplomatic relations....

If it was for her country... her people... her family... she had to do it.

It had been a short year since she had saved her country, her hair had grown back nearly back to it's full length, she had kept in touch with her friends from the army... and Shang... Shang, they had been having whisperings of marriage, of him asking her parents permission to take her as his wife....

Then this had come up.

She pushed her lips together again. No use in living in the past. She'd have to get used to the future presented to her now.


She jumped at the voice, but tried hard to keep her "demure" facade....

Did someone just kick open the door?

[ooc: FFT I hope it's good. :) LET THE GAMES BEGIN >8)

Also. Imma say she's in this, hair the same style, with her full face make up 8D

(ooc| It's delightful!)

Emperor Kuzco sauntered over to the line of women present to him, all the while being reminded by a nervous, babbling servant how important it was that he choose a bride soon.

Ugh. Whatever. From the looks of these ladies, there wasn't going to be any wedding bells anytime soon. He walked down from woman to woman, finding a flaw to point out in each of them...

And then he stopped, in front of an woman who clearly wasn't from his kingdom. Oh. Right. "You're the girl who decided to play soldier, right?"

He totally didn't get that - Why anyone would join the army if they didn't have to. But at the very least, it was a bit more interesting than most of the girls he was usually shown.

And she was kind of cute.

"I know it is," Kuzco responded smugly. He was actually thinking about this. It would get everyone off his back about marriage... She was attractive enough... And unique, different. Having China's hero as his bride could only make him cooler, right?

"This... Could work," he mused, glancing down at his servant.

Kuzco grinned. "Of course she would be."

Well. It might mess with his groove a bit, being married, but it wasn't like he would let her turn her into some hen-pecked husband.

"Alright," he said, clapping his hands together. "I have chosen my bride!"

Kuzco blinked a bit at how fast everyone had left... Leaving him alone with his future bride.

Future bride. Suddenly, it felt all the more real and strange.

At her words, he turned his attention back to Mulan. "Um... First, I think we should set up some ground rules. I don't know what you were expecting in a husband, but I don't really do the whole... Domestic thing. You probably should, although really, I have servants for that. So... Just don't cramp my style, and this should work."

/fails forever at being punctual

Kuzco placed a hand on his chin for a moment, thinking. "I don't know. Expecting me to be all... Husband-y. Getting in the way. Changing things, pretty much. Don't do that."

He sighed, shaking his head. Maybe this hadn't been such a good idea, after all...

Kuzco scowled, crossing his arms. His tone was defensive as he spoke. "Look, I get that you're a great big hero back in China, but this is my turf. And I'm an Emperor." God, why hadn't she shown this side before he'd made his choice? "Look, my people won't... Won't get off my back until I pick a bride. I picked you. Any other girl would realize how lucky they are!"

She was impossible. This was going to be impossible.

Aha, sounds like a fun time, definitely! :]

Kuzco blinked at her a few times. Where on Earth had that come from?

"Be all lovely and stuff. At first, anyway. Eventually stop being able to stand each other. Bug each other to do stuff. Fight for no apparent reason. Sometimes throw things at each other," he listed. "Have ki-"

And he stopped, staring, wide-eyed - No. No, no, no.


He'd never been... All that educated on that topic. Or if he had, he didn't remember - Hadn't payed attention. Either way, it still grossed him out.

Kuzco threw his hands up in front of him as she drew nearer. "Woah, woah... Look, I understand why you'd... Want to... With me... But it's not happening. The heir thing... We'll figure something out."

He'd... Just keep telling himself that. Yeah. Just because deep down he knew she was right, didn't mean he wanted to admit that. Ever.

(ooc| But of course! XD)

Whoa html fail I am sorry.

"I don't do lovey," was his initial answer - Short and to the point. But he went on, just to make things very clear. "I don't do kissing, or talking all romantic, and I definitely don't do hugs. Look, you're like... A necessity, okay? Getting married is something they wouldn't get off my back about. Now, they're off my back. Problem solved."

Kuzco scowled a bit, the shortness of her response not lost on him, but... At least he'd one the argument. He was pretty sure. And then she wiped off her makeup...


He shrugged it off with an, "At least you're actually pretty."

Kuzco paused for a moment. He'd been told what would happen when he chose a bride, every little detail, but he hadn't been paying the cloest attention... Ah. That was right.

"Not... With me. But in my room. So we can get used to it."

Date: 2011-01-15 10:01 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] 4thwallbreaker.livejournal.com
Kuzco sighed, but nodded. "Sure. Let's start with the throne room - It's the most important place for you to know, since it's where I spend most of my time..."

And with that, he started to head off, motioning for her to follow him.

Kuzco shot her a bit of a look as she followed him on his heels. That... Was just great. Not only was it physically annoying, but it probably meant she was clingy or something... Ugh.

"Do you mind?"

Kuzco groaned, but quietly. He was not going to go back on this. No. If this girl thought she could control him...

"Could you just... Give me a little space?" he muttered, not even looking at his future wife.

(ooc| Haha, awesome. XD)

Kuzco rolled his eyes as she moved back some. It was true, it wasn't at all as far back as he would have liked. But he could do this. She wasn't going to break him down. No way.

Eventually, he lead her into the large throne room. He smiled a bit - It was just nice being in there, even with stubbornly unpleasant company. "Well, this is it." He gestured to the throne proudly. "Impressive, I know."
