This section is in need of major improvement. Please help improve this article by editing it.

Mulan met Aurora some time after Prince Phillip invited the female warrior to join him in his task of finding the princess when the sleeping curse had placed her in a deep, death-like sleep; after the prince freed Aurora from it with a true love's kiss she and Mulan got to know each other. At one point after Philip disappears, Aurora became jealous of Mulan and had accused her of being in love with Phillip, until Mulan reassures her that she doesn't love him and only considers Philip a friend before they both go in search of him. Shortly after they find his deceased body, Mulan explains to Aurora what has happened during the time she was asleep when the Dark curse was unleashed upon the world, but she tell Aurora of the monster Philip was turned into to protect her from any fervour grief.

Later in the series, Mulan almost confesses to Aurora that she likes her, but Aurora first tells her that she and Phillip are expecting. Mulan's face falls, but she quickly smiles. She then instead says she's joining Robin Hood's band.

Sleeping Warrior is one of the well loved femslash ships within the Once Upon A Time fandom. Despite how things ended between them, there have been fans who have Aurora having the same feeling for Mulan and returns them, before or after Mulan confesses her love for the princess.

While the ship is commonly focused on OUaT's version of the two, there are fans who use ship and its commonly used title with Disney's versions of them within the Disney Princess crossover ships of the Disney fandom, since the ABC television series has its own versions of the Disney characters and has a few traits from its series; and it being the live-action show that helped to trigger the ship or had helped to make it popular in both fandoms. As well as a few fans recreating the OUaT fandom side of the ship within the Disney fandom side of it. A reawakened sleeping princess who meets and befriends a female warrior who became close with each other. There have even been those who feature the two as their other cameo counterparts in canon Disney crossovers and draw from universes, like Kingdom Hearts (where they are two of the first seven Princesses of Hearts), Sofia the First and the Wreck-It Ralph sequel film, Ralph Breaks the Interest, that sometimes has a few Disney fans place Mulan and Aurora in the modern, style clothes that the netizen versions of them are seen wearing.

On AO3, the OUaT side of the ship has over 319 fanfics while the Disney side of it has 7.
