Xadrian seems pretty cool. His demeanor reminds me a bit of JIraya from Naruto in the sense that he can be serious one minute and then just a goof the next.
I was wondering when Allen was going to show up. Didn't expect him to be among the Academy's elite Vanguard, though. That just means that Shannon, once again, will have quite the gap to shrink between the two of them.
I'm just waiting to see if the Tiger student sues for Vanguard brutality =P

I can see what the other comments mean by a sibling relationship. They definitely played off one another as if they were brother and sister.
Shannon adjusting to life isn't going as hard as I thought. She seems apprehensive but quickly becomes determined to light her candle showing her willingness to persevere... or perhaps stubbornness?
Let's just hope she doesn't burn her room down, haha.

This was a nice, calming chapter! Some good food, the lay of the land, all capped off with every modern girl's nightmare... a disconnect from the internet and social media!
With just that alone, she has already cleansed herself of a lethal poison!
I did notice that Sun Liehuo mentioned that she would be making the trip up those stairs very often. Despite not choosing a path, it sounds like he, low-key, wants Shannon to choose the Dragon Path. Obviously, it's not a foreshadow but it was a nice little quirk to pick up on that might just mean that he has a vested interest in her (skills, as I'm assuming 12 is a bit too young, haha!)

We made it to Shang Tsung's island!! Also, RIP Boat-kun.
I like how Shannon went from flirty revenge to just being an average girl on vacation as soon as they entered the island. With her getting to choose a path tomorrow, I already see what you're setting up.
Everyone from every path is gathering so, I would imagine, this is where we will see a sibling reunion?

Curiosity killed the cat as they say but it's funny how we humans easily succumb to it, too. I have a feeling dad's not getting that return call any time soon lol :)

Given the power level difference between them, this was the best conclusion. I almost had it predicted right that Shannon would counter a true technique to show her spirit but they turned out to be healing flames instead.
The battle was still nicely done even if Shannon ended up just being a punching bag. I can see it happening again at the academy and how this could be her path to "leveling up."
Then again, I was wrong before and I'll probably be wrong again, lol!

Maye-Lee discovers Raif! I don't think I can see this becoming a love triangle; however, I can see this opening Maye-Lee up to the "world" that Sebby and Raif live in. Now, I have to wonder if she's going to get caught or simply go to work and wonder about what she had just seen!

I like how Sun Lie Huo was grading her during the duel. Impressive that Shannon was able to swim back to the ship and continue. The fact that he keeps holding back shows the difference in their power but it is a bit honorable that he's making it as fair of a fight as possible.
It's almost as if he wants to bring her in. At this point, I don't think he has any real intentions of letting her get away. In fact, I would say he was counting on this to happen!
I have a feeling the ending here is a bit of a swerve and the duel will be settled in another way but I like the fight so far! Would be cool to see Sun Lie Huo bust out a high-level skill only to have it foiled due to emotions gripping him but with his composure so far, I don't think that would make much sense haha.

I had a feeling that Sun and Zheng had some hidden motive. In stories like this, one doesn't usually show their powers so willingly unless they had an ulterior motive. In this case, it was a silent warning for Shannon but, given her immersion in a new foreign land, she was completely naive to the possibility that there would be a test before reaching the academy.
While most would have crumbled at sea after being blindsided like that, Shannon stepped up to the challenge. Perhaps immaturity and inexperience played a role here since she's only 12 but this sets the stage for one of two outcomes... either she's going to get embarrassed and somehow still get accepted or Sun and Zheng will learn that Shannon is truly related to Allen.
My only worry is that if Shannon does end up besting the two of them, would that speak to her growth as outlined in the prologue or will it be an oversight that she's still supposed to be weaker than Allen? Also, if she is weaker than Allen and she bested them, then that would just mean Sun and Zheng talk a big game for being escorts but, in reality, aren't really all that powerful.
Either way, I'm invested to find out what happens next!
As a side note... hilarious parodies of social media. Perhaps when Shannon graduates, she would like to spend a day with Daiki and Miko on the PlayTerminal 5 while streaming on Twinge! =P

Great intro chapter.
The comparison between Shannon and Allen is typical of judgmental parents weighing and measuring their own children; however, when it spills out into the world and you succumb to public perception, it's easy for the lesser of the two to feel slighted and that was told nicely here.
It's a tried-and-true choice, though. You either accept your fate of not being as gifted as your sibling or you use it as motivation to push yourself forward and Shannon chose the latter, showing her mental toughness. In the end, it paid off for her because now she gets to reunite with her brother but I feel that there's still going to be that comparison going forward.
I can already imagine that it's going to build up to a breaking point where she finally "proves" herself as an equal to Allen. Should be a great moment when it comes!
Looking forward to the next chapter!

This chapter was cute, warming, and a bit somber.
I liked the nice little backstory between May-lee's father and mother. To trigger an emotion so quickly means that she must have been a wonderful woman!
Even though her father "learned" how to cook, I'm expecting her soul to escape her body in the next chapter, haha!

Sucks that Maye-lee has to work a double in the dead of night but I'm sure the sight she saw was enough compensation! ;)

So, his name is Sebastian, eh?
Good choice, methinks :)
Now it seems as if you built a separate world for these cats that I'm now interested in! Can't wait to read more!

Pretty interesting concept going with screenplay formatting. Definitely stands out.
