Story idea: Set in Wakanda, this rolls on from another story idea about bucky as a war dog running into someone who was trying to find out the truth of her husbands death that she believed to be part of a conspiracy. Their path cross and she ends up losing her home and everything, but is given a job in a school T'Challa had set up in a poor neighbourhood.
Infinity war takes place and she ends up in the middle of the battle in wakanda helping to defend the Jabari home as they come under heavy attack away from everyone else.
The character in question is called Eliza Jackson, but is given the nickname of Foxbite because of her wild red curly frizzy hear and sharp attitude. She is badly wounded in battle after what she claimed was a hell dog from space bit into the side of her waist. She survived.
After the battle, many Wakandans have perished or turned to ash. Some time after he invites Eliza into his tribe, after being impressed by her efforts in the war and feeling a kinship to her. Both not liking the outside world and not wanting to be a part of it.
The story is then about learning about each other, and helping one another cope with loss and to find life again. The emphasis is not on romance or anything like that. But more growing as people, together. I quite like the idea of him bonding with an outsider, as hes protrayed as being quite anti the outside world and wants Wakanda to remain isolated from it. To then find an outsider who AGREES with him…but for her own painful personal reasons, which makes him revalue his opinions on the matter and where his tribe is heading in the future. And she learns what it feels like to belong to a community, which shes never felt before. It touches on some interracial issues, but its not the main focus. As colonization never happened in Wakanda, so they dont have that feeling towards her, but more of a sister who got lost and has come back to them in the form of an outsider.
So its an insight on how their society works, their beliefs and views and attitudes, and how she comes to embrace it.
