Shang-Chi College AU Headcanon
shangqi: I think he’d do stock photo modeling get a degree/go to trade school for something involving engineering. do I have any evidence to back this up? no. I just get vibes. but also on the stock photo train maybe a marketing major? I could also see him being in international relations with a minor in languages or something (since he knows four, as mentioned in the movie).
katy: it was mentioned that she got an honors degree from berkeley, so I kinda feel like she went and got some complicated science major and then just. didn’t care much about it so never went into the field. but I think theater could suit her too?
xialing: I see two possibilities. one, she majors in business with a minor in art. two, more fun and the one I prefer, she studies art because she’s just incredibly talented at it, then drops out and starts a successful business because she’s just *like that* (she secretly does commissions on the side)
wenwu: military history professor. he frequently tells anecdotes in class that seem to be fun stories, but he’s completely stone faced so maybe he’s not kidding? who knows.
ying li: when she was in college, everyone loved her, and she was super involved in sports (she also gave yoga classes in the student lounge every saturday morning). she eventually went into social work.
ying nan: professor in psychology she and li are psych sisters she gives off rly warm and comforting vibes so she’d be that really nice and comforting teachers that’s chill in class but you still learn a lot, y’know?
jon jon: went to college for two years, struck gold managing the Golden Daggers club, and dropped out to pursue that full time (because college isn’t necessary for everything, you know?). he now manages the bets and he and xialing are going great.
razor fist: joined the military, became close with his supervisors, and eventually became a general. nuff said.
