SHADO

anonymous asked:

Could you possibly write a short fic exploring Shado being in the League of Assassins instead of getting fridged in Arrow season 2? I've always wanted to read something like that, and I know you're a huge Shado fan. Thanks!

YOU. YOU ARE MY FAVORITE ANON. I LOVE YOU. I’VE WANTED A SHADO PROMPT FOREVER (also yeah just fyi this is shado/nyssa sorry not sorry)

“Your knife work is exceptional,” Nyssa said as they entered the training arena, “but your swordplay is… subpar.” She strode over to the rack of weapons, foot catching on a loose stone tile, and picked up two swords, tossing one to Shado (who caught it with her right hand).

“Perhaps because I never used a sword before.” Martial arts, knives, a bow–these were all things her father had taught her, back when she wanted to join the military, before she broke her sister’s nose in a moment of pure rage and swore off fighting for anything but self defense ever again. The sword, however, he had never touched. He never did tell her why. He never would.

“You make excuses, Al-Tanin.” Nyssa smirked, the hollows of her face more pronounced in the dim and flickering light of the torches. Shado spared a moment to trace the contours of her lips and the slight tremble in her frame (it couldn’t be fear; anticipation, then? excitement?) before she sank into a crouch, ready to attack. Nyssa mirrored her, but kept one hand behind her back. She would be embarrassed that Nyssa had handicapped herself, but she couldn’t waste her energy on such frivolous emotions

She leapt into action, and their swords were a blur, a clanging of steel against steel. Before long, sweat trickled down her brow and into her eyes, but she could not afford the break in focus it would take to wipe it away because there was Nyssa, aiming at her shoulder. Shado forced her back, snaking in her blade, only to have it pushed aside and out of her hand.

“Again,” Nyssa said, holding her blade to Shado’s throat.

As the training went on, the air filled with a coppery tang, so slowly she almost didn’t notice it. But she did, and she looked over at Nyssa, who looked as haggard as she felt, and she knew something was wrong.

“Nyssa, stop.”

Why is Guggenheim and co. So obsessed with felicity to the point where they take stories and elements from Amazing characters like Oracle and the [real] Ghost Fox Goddess​, and give it to her instead (which they then execute terribly)

I wish I could answer you. 

Honestly, when I read about these character’s’ wiki, I get really confused as to why they didn’t just go with that character. Obviously, the show got permission to use the name, therefore, why wouldn’t you just use the actual character?

I would be perfectly fine if they brought Celina Jade back and had her take up the name of Ghost Fox Killer; I would’ve been okay if they said that it was her twin sister, not a resurrected Shado, that’s who is Ghost Fox Killer and she takes her sister’s green hood from Oliver. Shado’s twin sister gets her spiritual powers from her mom’s side of the family, as she is a descendant of the Ghost Fox Killer Clan. In the years that Oliver told her about what happened to Shado and Yao Fei, Shado’s twin sister was already training to find her family, and she swears revenge on the people who did this to her family. 

See, I just made a better story than all of Arrow.

Anyway imagine Shado meeting Nyssa in the League of Assassins. Shado who says, “If I care about someone there’s nothing I won’t do for them.”

And she comes to care about Nyssa more than she ever thought possible again. Because this beautiful woman who was raised to kill chose instead to save her, chose to love her, in defiance of everything her father wanted for her. Nyssa, who never had the freedom she was owed, the life she deserved, the love she craved, and Shado cares for her.

So of course Shado would want to give that all to her, but while her love is easy enough… what about her freedom? Nyssa has never gone to the beach and played in the surf, has never climbed a mountain to see the world from a new height, has never eaten a damn french fry; and what can Shado do, really? Ra’s al Ghul has already planned his daughter’s life out for her and escaping his clutches would be far from simple. So what can she do?

Answer: she takes down the motherfucking League of Assassins so her girlfriend can eat a fucking milkshake on the beach

Gifset/Fanfic request

Someone should make a gifset/fanfic of Shado’s twin sister as Ghost Fox Killer, where she gets a redemption arc through Laurel, and changes her name to Ghost Fox Goddess, because her dad, Yao Fei, and twin sister, Shado, never wanted a dark path for her. Shado’s twin sister, Ghost Fox Goddess, watches Laurel save Sara’s soul, and it’s the Lance sisters who restore her faith in humanity. Ghost Fox Goddess teams up with Laurel to catch the “evil” men (and women) and put them in jail, because she vows to never kill again (and doesn’t break her rule like Oliver does).

*Like, I want to read an entire book, guys, of this, and I’m just too lazy to write it. (lol)

**Otherwise, I am more than willing to settle for a good gifset, so I can pretend this is canon. (lol)

If Lucy is ever lost
  • Night Watch: She’s missing? We’ll keep an eye out for her, what does she look like?
  • Lockwood: Well, Lucy’s got the most beautiful hazel eyes--you can see flecks of gold in them when there’s light--she also has this milky brown hair that flows in the wind when she runs beside me, and oh! She smells of soothing honey tea on a cold day. And god, don't even get me started on her smile, it’s the sweetest--makes you feel all safe and warm inside--
  • George: Ok I'm sure that's quite enough information on her Lockwood
