4 - Arms of an Angel by DolphinMoana 4 - Arms of an Angel by DolphinMoana
100 Theme Challenge #4 - "Always"

Yay for unoriginal titles. :lol:

So this is based off of an RP :iconcryssy-miu: did, I suppose. :D Not very long after Koto is killed and Shifu is brought to the Jade Palace, the cub has a nightmare that replays out the horrible events of his father's murder. Try as he might, he can't protect Koto and drive away the Ju-long assailants and wakes with a start.

After some comforting words from his new caretaker, Eri, Shifu finally gets back to sleep........ Only to be eerily greeted by the same nightmare. This time, however, Shifu's determined not to not let the images in his head ruin him, and faces the towering army before him with boldness beyond his age. Then, once Shifu is once again terribly alone, a certain someone shows up to reassure him he'll never be alone, no matter where life takes him or how old he gets.

Wait was Koto's ghost really there or was it just a dream?

Hard to say. Koto was kinda there, he kinda appeared in Shifu's subconscious.

Yeah, and I saw that you've been on here for almost a year. I have to admit I kinda questioned why your only activity has really been to ask me all this stuff. :lol: I love talking about my characters, though.

lol, yeah i created the account so i could write comments and stuff, when i first got here i was looking at pictures of Master Shifu, but never knew someone would make an entire period of time before the movie. When i discovered your art and all about Koto and his family i was amazed.
