This isn't a request I just wanted to share that earlier today I was re-watching Mulan and I thinking about how all the war lords would react if MC pretended to be a man. Like what do you think they would do when they find out she's a woman? I bet Mitsuhide would just laugh at everyones' else's surprised reaction bc he figured it out just by looking at you lol
Yes. Yes. This. THIS.
I honestly don’t think a lot of them would be fooled, to be honest! Here’s how I reckon it would go! I know it’s not a request, but I want to write their reactions because this is hilarious:
- Doesn’t realise you’re a woman until it’s made painfully obvious, like the whole she’s-got-boobs-holy-shit moment, and then he basically just frazzles out and dies.
- Questions his ability as a warlord.
- Cries just a bit.
- And also secretly admires you because holy shit you can fight well despite being a girl~
- Thinks something’s suspicious but then brushes it off bc hey people have called him feminine before, much to his sorrow.
- But then when you blush at comments they make and things they talk about he’s just like -.- “This is just getting weirder and weirder…”
- And then he finds out and at first he sort of blanks for a minute, trying to wrap his head around it.
- But then he’s fine, doesn’t care much and just mutters, “I knew you were a weirdo from the start. You’re not completely useless, though, so well done.”
- HE CAN SEE IT FROM THE START ARE YOU KIDDING?!
- He’s such a womaniser that he knows a female from a mile away~
- And he hints at it all the time and just goes into hysterics when you try even harder to look manly.
- But then when it’s found out by everyone he just leans down to whisper, “Hey, now I can flirt with you and no one will bat an eyelid. Nice to meet you, kitten.”
- He knows. The second he sees you, he’s just like, “Pffft. It’s a valiant attempt, but no one’s going to believe i-”
- *Looks at the vassals + warlords for the most part fooled by you.
- “… I’m surrounded by idiots.”
- [AYYYY I DON’T EVEN LIKE DISNEY (SORRY NOT SORRY) BUT HEY THERE’S A REFERENCE FOR YOU~]
- So he just goes over to you, taking your hand and obscuring what he’s doing from everyone else, then kissing it before whispering, “A pleasure to meet you, My Lady.”
- *WALKS OFF LIKE A BOSS
WITH EXPLOSIONS BEHIND HIM AND THUG LIFE SUNGLASSES*
- You could tell him you’re the reincarnation of the tree branch you stepped on earlier and he’d believe you.
- He doesn’t realise at all, even though at times he’s like, “He has very smooth skin and feminine features… hm… perhaps he’s just very like Lord Ieyasu!”
- But then it comes out and he’s just like… “Eh?”
- Spends the next week following you around so he can watch you and confirm that you’re actually a girl.
- But then he loves you anyway because you’re so capable and cute and aw~
- He calls bullshit as soon as he sees you.
- He’d literally notice it straight away; he’d see the features and body stature and just feel that you’re a woman.
- “You. Take off the disguise, now. I know you’re a woman, and suggest you make up a very good reason for lying to me before I decide to kill you for it.”
- He’s like Nobunaga; especially with his… disliking, shall we say, of women, he knows instantly.
- If you were scared with Nobunaga, you should be terrified of Kenshin.
- He literally just grabs you and tugs your hair out of its band if it’s been held up, then holds you by your chin and pretty much just turns into a snake, hissing, “What a pathetic attempt at a disguise. Did you really think you could fool me, woman?”
- You’re in his bad books from then on.
- You only said warlords, so he’s not really included~ he’d know anyway.
- He’d probably help you out with making your disguise.
- Probably would offer you his clothes but then would realise that they’re too big.
- He’ll find you some materials so you can make your own ^^;;
- HE SEES IT.
- HIS SHINGEN SENSES ARE A-TINGLIN’.
- A WOMAN IS NEAR.
- But he just pulls you to the side and peers at you for a moment with a smirk, confirming his suspicions. Then, he just leans down, pecking your cheek so fast before winking and sauntering off, cooing,
- “Cute. See you soon, little lady, and hopefully when you’re not dressed as a man, so I can make a move on you in your natural, beautiful form.”
- He never realised but he always felt nervous talking to you.
- NOW IT ALL MAKES SENSE AND HE’S DOESN’T KNOW HOW TO FEEL ABOUT THAT BECAUSE HE WAS LOW-KEY ATTRACTED TO YOU EVEN WHEN YOU WERE A BOY DESPITE BEING IN DENIAL OVER IT
- Take what you will from that.
- He can’t look you in the eye for a long time, not because you’re a girl now but because he just turns into a blushing mess every time he sees you.
- “… do these fools really believe that’s a man?”
- He sees through it and it just annoys him, so he’s Nobunaga and Shingen and just drags you to the side, snapping,
- “Whatever game you’re playing, it’s coming to an end. You might be capable, but do so as the sex you are. Nothing good will come of hiding, Miss.”
- He actually cares though; he’s worried someone will find out and then deliberately take advantage of you as a result.
- So he’d be looking out for you regardless of whether you kept it up or stopped and it’s so cute~
