Idol Star Neo Will Never Sing For You Edition
Dubs confirm artificial moe has surpassed naturally occurring moe
We don't need another thread. Seriously. We already have threads on three boards. Why start another one? We're not large enough to go the way of MLP, so either the extra threads will get banned, or all of them will.
If that really is the case then /trash/ is our best hope
fuck you and shut up
RWBY is /co/ material. This is the home board, it stays here until a mod says otherwise, and considering that's a mod statement, I don't think that will be soon
>Penny will never fall In love with you
>you'll never cuddle together with her head on your chest
>Ruby will never fall In love with you
>you'll never cuddle together with your head on her chest
Here's to you, Monty.
Yeah.. You were probably on the spectrum. But then again.. So are all of us. You're still a spirit of motivation and resolve to us all.
How about you, /RWBYg/? What've you done to make him proud? I know a handful of you promised to start writing for the thread when he passed. Post your most recent story.
Why I think Neo and Roman actually like each other (in paragraph form because greentext is illegal or some shit?):
They used to be small time criminals working together out of convenience, but after a job went bad and some people came after them for revenge, Torchwick held them off so Neo could escape, and accepted the torture and death that came with stealing from the wrong people. Neo came back for him and committed her first mass murder on the people who tortured him and they've been besties ever since.
Why do you hurt me so ?
We don't get banned during hiatuses, though, because, at least in name, we're an RT general, and RT as a whole is never in a hiatus state. /sug/ does get banned by mods and thus they go to /trash/ so they still have a place to exist in an organized manner. But seriously, why do we have a thread on /trash/?
People are getting desperate mainly, autismo and his janitors have even been deleting responses to greentext. If what soup said is true, I'd honestly like a clarification from a mod really so we can settle it.
>Ruby will never catch you wearing her stockings
Ever since Penny died I have done nothing but dream about her, and how I wish I were there for her.
And I woke up and realized I'm an autistic manchild, but an autistic manchild wih dreams of saving a robot cutie, I was.
Weiss is making too big a deal out of it.
You just need to be casual about it.
>RWBY-related stories aren't
So, those of you assuming a conspiracy about RT not discussing the Fine Bros, you're wrong. They're talking about it on the podcast, and they're about as critical as you'd expect from an established internet company.
because I want to
make people share my pain ;_;
Fuck both of you. Here's the REAL best girl.
No argument there. It basically boils down to what is explicitly listed in /co/'s rules vs what is apparently implied in what a janitor can/can't do. I've basically been sending daily requests for clarification from
To see if we can finally get a word on this. I've been banned once for posting a smutfic (understandable, this is a blue board) but then got only the 15min temp ban that kink got hit with where they "evaluate" the content of your posts and decide to upgrade it to a full ban, which leads me to believe earlier beliefs that it's an individual janitor focusing on this issue rather than an actual modstaff .
Oh, I hope so. I've never been in a hiatus before so I hope it's as slow and relaxed as you guys say. By the way, whatever happened to drawfriend? Did he suddenly disappear one day or something?
haven't finished it yet but here's a bit from my OC fanfic, in case your wondering they're talking about yang.
>"Hey, how was I supposed to know asking about how her semblance formed was a bad idea? James said, somewhat annoyed.
>"Maybe by not telling her you hypothesized it was because of back pain caused by her large chest. I see the black eye she gave you has healed up by the way. anyway, the reason I wanted to talk to is because of your choice in hunter academy."
any good? I'm trying to avoid talking heads and will take whatever advice I can get
I drew Penny.
To bad I started enjoying her character too late.
>tfw I missed the word "is" in that
I believe he made a Tumblr, but just to tell some guy not to post his art outside of 4chan without permission. I don't think he ever used it outside of that.
I'm pretty sure he was just a case of someone with more important stuff going on in his life.
For fun? I don't know, maybe its to see who can stay in the spotlight and who can turn into a background character or something.
Oh don't worry, I was actually here during the hiatus too.
>It's a /v/ is making fun of us again episode
Because he just discovered he can do it and get away with it freely with the addition of people constantly giving him attention and nourishing him with salty delicious tears.
Win Win for him
I don't get your joke anon
I'm probably not that anon but
Maybe if you guys learned how to pastebin, this wouldn't have happened.
Pretty much just have to keep sending reports to
About this. It's what I did last time and the non-stop reporting/deletions did stop for a while, I din't know if this actually was responsible for it, but it's a channel to respond to this at least.
i will pay my penance in wallpaper
Sweet, a new wallpaper! Let me just shrink down and get a better look!
>I saved it for ants
i will go cry in corner now
Am I the only one that gets sad when looking at fanart like this? Remnant could have been such a mysterious, beautiful place but they just didn't go through with it... Wasted potential really hurts me for some reason.
Pretty much, or at the very least to get an official moderator response once and for all, just like the one we got saying RWBY/G belonged on /co/. The fact I could be "banned" and then not banned after my content was reviewed seriously implies there's a disconnect on what Janitors and Mods are following with regard to board rules.
Is there anywhere to get some scans of the manga? I've read the first chapter, but not the subsequent two. I wish there were an American release. I'd love to have it in my collection.
Subjective beauty aside, how on earth is that a representation of what Remnant could amount to? It's a generic as hell looking city. It doesn't incorporate anything involving the RWBY universe.
Pretty dumb to complain about wasted potential while posting and praising an image that makes zero use of the series' potential.
Where'd you get chapter 2? A link, please?
>Remember seeing RWBY ads in my comics back when Volume 1 was starting
>Feel excited that RWBY's advertising in real comics
>No western release of the manga, and the only RWBY that'll ever be in my shortboxes is the occasional ad from like 2012
Please, stuff like this doesn't even faze me, it just looks stupid
have you ever had a sex dream about your waifu /rwbyg/?
Oh, awesome, thank you! Oh man, if this story winds up being how Weiss got her scar, I'll have been almost completely right in my predictions!
Hm. I'll have to hunt.
It's exactly that.
So much for child abuse.
I watched the last episode!
You wound me Anon
I'll try to get it done soon Anon
I'd say that barring your kid from attending the school she chose, and trying to deter her by sending terrifying monsters after her is pretty abusive.
I'm so happy! I really hope this manga is canon. Miles and Kerry were consulted, but haven't commented on its canonicity.
>Leaving Oobleck and Ironwood out of the "solid" ranking.
>Oobleck without Port
I had to, Soup.
Best guys. God I hope they live through this...C'mon Mario Bros!
Hey /RWBYg/ !
I would like to start doing RWBY-related "art". But considering I can't draw (and i'm too lazy to train), i would like to do "minimalist" representations, like pic related.
But ! For characters, what do you think i should do ? More left, or more right (in pic related of course) ?
Also, taking criticism and requests.
No one Nora should have all that power.
Daddy Schnee didn't do any of that though. The person there in the manga is actually his assistant, and says that he doesn't really need to be contacted.
He might have pushed for Weiss to attend Atlas rather than Beacon, but the secretary is the one who set the possession Grimm on her.
Also, it is canon, they've said so.
How is this for feed back?
just want to make sure I haven't missed anything, gone about something too long.
Recently in the RWBY general threads in /co/, there has been multiple deletions for green text stories about the characters from the show.
There has been no response from mods or the janitor(s) or the /co/ board for why these are getting deleted, however there are multiple anonymous posts, though i'm not sure if it is one person or multiple, who continue to say that it is because the stories violate global rules 3 for being off topic and 6 because of the quality.
And then go on to say that we should all just use the pastebin instead of "wasting posts"
This then lead to multiple threads discussing rather or not the content was off topic, rather than the topic itself, though no action was taken against this series of off topic rants the way the stories, based on the threads subject, were being deleted.
Until recently there have been no problems with the Anons of the RWBY general posting their stories or the screen caps of the stories, which have also, though not as often, started getting deleted.
There has also been cases where, in less than a minute after being posted, the stories were being deleted.
I'm not very familiar with how long it takes for a post to get deleted after it's been reported, but for multiple stories to be deleted less than a minute after being put up, would imply that either a moderator or janitor is in the thread and waiting for stories to delete them
I am not saying that that is the case, because as i've said, no moderator or janitor has told us in the thread that any of rules that have been broken.
All that myself, and others in the general ask, is that either a moderator or janitor simply make a post in the thread confirming rather or not a story, rather it is green text or written normally, that is written about the characters or universe that the thread is based on, is off topic or if it is acceptable to do.
But the assistant tells Weiss that Papa Schnee told him that if Weiss is being "persistent in her selfishness" then she's expected to win? Seems like Papa told them: "If she acts up about wanting to go to Beacon, beat that desire out of her."
Also, source on that canonicity statement? I'd love to see what they said about this whole thing. How exciting must it be to have something that you've helped create be expanded upon by others?
You know what if the people who are reporting green texts are not even part of the communities that they are reporting?
Could just be people reporting them for other motives.
Because I still can't find a rule that green texts break. So they need to update the rules about it or something.
Sounds about right, that's pretty much the same thing I was mentioning. That there's no explicit rules against greentext and brought up the possibility of Janitor abuse and if we could get some clarification once and for all on the subject one way or another that it would be appreciated.
I know this is supposed to derive some kind of emotional response from me but I'm not getting anything.
It's those fucking ellipses you sprinkled alongside some turns of phrases. The fact that Ruby apperently made her feel "real" but she makes the point to mention the fact that she's fake. The fact that she, a machine uses phrases that humans use to get their mind back on track.
Such a great song. I really liked the new version of that song that played at the end of Lessons Learned. It'd be really cool if all the main four's songs got updated versions as they changed and grew.
Here's the most recent. I wrote my first story about Anon comforting a cry Nora when Monty died..
It's kinda of weird that I've written a few things I'm actually proud of since then.
That doesn't mean he said to sic that on her, the person at the controls seemed hesitant.
For canonicity, I was basing it on what another anon had said. Not sure of the source.
Also this is supposed to be from right -> left, right? How the fuck should I read that bottom right panel?
Not a bad argument, but I'd say is seems like the ruthlessness is there. Guess we'll see for sure later.
As for the reading? No idea. It's definitely right to left, but that paneling is definitely a little confusing. I went 1. Big panel, 2. top left, 3. small flat panel, 4. bottom left
Yeah, I really didn't remember how good it was until I went back and watch the White trailer recently when I introduced a friend to the show.
On the other hand if we're actually calling it Mirror Mirror Part II, that's a definite trend. With Blake v Adam coming up I'm curious if we'll see a reprise of From Shadows soon, too.
Yes, that would be a correct assessment. She's fantastic.
I checked the RWBY wiki and I'm not seeing an "official" name, so "Mirror Mirror Part II" sounds good. There was a little reprise of "From Shadows" when Adam appeared in the Beacon invasion, so hopefully you're right. Some people don't like "From Shadows", but I really enjoy it. All the trailer songs are damn good jams.
>That little holster at her side
I love this shit
>Also this is supposed to be from right -> left, right? How the fuck should I read that bottom right panel?
>It's a hunter's duty to suppress Grimm
>"If she's being insistent on her selfishness, then I expect her to win" said the president.
You really shouldn't try to antagonize the staff, just try to go through the proper channels.
"From Shadows" is probably tainted by some of the problems associate with the Black Trailer - not to mention the actual release version of the song is different than how it's used in the trailer.
Similarly, the full version of I Burn has never appeared in the show or trailer, though you can clearly hear a jazzified element of it in the score for never miss a beat.
Because there wasn't much to go on and I can write whatever the hell I want. There is about fuck all of character development for her so I decided on my own to write something that I liked. Don't like it? Think it's all wrong? Well too bad, I don't care. I don't care what others here say about my writing style or prose, never have, and most likely never will.
Jesus Christ, anon. It's fanfiction. Go find another hill to die on, or go through the proper channels finding out what the policy is and how to work with it.
Yeah, I think Black and Yellow sort of squandered their songs by modifying them, but they still make great character themes. I love when characters have distinct musical cues. Really evocative.
>though you can clearly hear a jazzified element of it in the score for never miss a beat
God I can't wait to get the full version of "Neon Rainbow" and whatever other song was in Never Miss a Beat. Such a fun episode musically. I need new running music.
You know, it's funny how Weiss's motivations in the manga are so much better than in the show.
In Mountain Glenn she said that she became a Hunter, rather than take a job with the SDC in Atlas, because she wanted to change the company. Which obviously makes zero fucking sense at all.
But in the manga, she decided to be a Huntress and go to Beacon simply to get away from her father, and earn some actual recognition that wasn't simply taken as to be expected of her. This explains her attitude in Volume 1, where she was so angry at not being appointed as team leader - She was expecting to be seen as exceptional and above-ordinary, but instead someone else was placed above her. It would be quite frustrating not to be acknowledged with a leadership role when that was the whole reason she left Atlas in the first place.
If I decide to write another piece on her (which I might, since you're kind of inspiring me to write more) then you can judge again and tell me it's still shit. Regardless of your opinion, I still won't care. I like what I write, and I feel satisfied with my efforts even if you don't find it up to Pulitzer material. That's the joy of fan fiction. To each their own, and I like my own.
For starters, I think she's cute and I like her outfit. And not many others do which lowers the chances of repetitive waifu wars
That being said, the whole "I want to be a Hunter because" scenes were all pretty worthless anyway since immediately afterwards they were all like "Actually, never mind. I don't really know why I want to be a Hunter"
It does also echo "I'm not perfect" pretty well. And meshes with her original explanation to Barty she had a lot expected of her.
But, on the other hand, this is in Volume 2, and toward the end, her explanation is to her friends, and is after she's seen some shit involving the mech and the White Fang and so on. So after she got out in the world it would make perfect sense for her to go "wow, my dad is a huge asshole. I do not want him to be the person people think of when they say 'Schnee'"
Y'know I think she might be a type moon reference. Her name is Ciel like one of the characters in the visual novel Tsukihime but her attire and mannerisms remind me of Sion Eltnam Atlasia from the fighting game spin-off Melty Blood, the latter of which is an alchemist from a middle-eastern branch of the Mage's Association called
>I love when characters have distinct musical cues. Really evocative.
Leitmotifs are nice, yes. Especially given how RWBY started, just color, movement and music.
And yes, pretty sure the score and any inserts from Never Miss a Beat will be top.
It's also by the same person that did the Devil May Cry light novels. Funny how crazy works out.
Definitely. I sort of wish RWBY did more with its color themes, but whatever.
Leitmotif porn is also really abundant in Steven Universe. Each character has an instrument and little diddy associated with them, and when the characters combine and interact, their leitmotifs do. It's really cool. I wish I could make music like those people.
>I wish I could make music like those people
So somebody calls my writing shit and my response should be "oh woe is me, my writing is so terrible, I should just whimper away and never write again"?
You got the wrong person if you think I'd just roll over and quit because someone on the internet didn't like my writing.
>is going to cater to your ego or point of view?
It's not really a singular point of view when everyone believes it.
This is not somebody complaining about it being greentext. This is someone complaining about the way you started it and how you somehow manged to get everything wrong and contradict what little has actually been shown of your supposed waifu.
Gotta be honest, if he doesn't care about other people's opinions, there's not much to be done. He'll either keep writing at the same level or improve in his own way. I don't read fanfiction other than ironically so it doesn't bother me what he does and quite honestly, don't think you should care that much if he is content with his writing as it is now.
I won't bully
Unless you're the bun Are you the bun, anon?
I never said his criticism was invalid. I simply said I didn't CARE. Everyone can criticize my writing all the live-long day and it wouldn't faze me at all. Now pay attention to this next bit, because it's important...
I write for my own enjoyment. It's free to criticism, and insults and compliments. But just because someone doesn't like it and thinks it needs work, doesn't mean I'm going to quit. And if it does bother people here, then don't read it. Or keep reading until you think it's gotten better. Either way, have fun.
Well to be fair I haven't heard anything besides being called a shit writer. That's hardly criticizing the actual work. If anyone else thinks they can do better then they're welcome to try. I'm just doing my own thing and happy in my work.
I've seen people around talk about what could happen if Vale ends up getting completely wrecked, with one of the ideas being that Beacons students end up continuing their education at one of the three other academies while repairs to Beacon are made. I think a change of scenery to Haven, Shade or Atlas would be interesting.
At least with Yang you've got numbers on your side, at least one person is bound to get her right once in a while.
Unfortunately for you, this is all you've got
Get a better waifu next time
Be right back, need to charge my phone. Have fun tonight RWBY/g
I'd say "soon", but we both know I'm full of shit.
But I'm too tipsy to do work tonight, so I'll do some writing on this before bed.
Be nice to fellow Stuffed Rabbiteers!
I just realized that underneath her weird mess of a coat, Winter is wearing the same weird criss-cross waistcoat thingy Ironwood has
I also just realized how silly Qrow's cape is. At least Ruby can pull hers off as part of the whole hood ensemble thing. Christ Qrow, you dork.
They gave up on that after volume 1, it's a damn shame
>I just realized that underneath her weird mess of a coat, Winter is wearing the same weird criss-cross waistcoat thingy Ironwood has
Husbands and wives tend to dress like each other.
Has the other weapon art had any names? I don't see any on stuff like this...
Damn I wish they'd go back to it. Weapon names are really fun, and are just the sort of trivia I eat up like a madman.
Being ravishingly sexy? I'd say so. Needs some killer glasses though.
Nope, these just went up on the RT site to commemorate Monty's passing - with the promise more Vol 3 production art will be released soon. I'll post any new ones as they appear though.
It would make sense, since she's an elite military specialist.
I don't think anyone can compete with Bayo's gams.
Whoops, by "this" I meant concept art for other characters.
Well, she's used fire and ice, but seems to strongly favor the ice aspect. She's also fired her magic probe beams in the first volume, but those seem to have faded into obscurity.
I think the only one she hasn't used is the restraint tactic she used on the Knight
What exactly makes him a good character?
He's a collection of anti-hero cliches who in his first appearcen attacked an ally and trashed military property. He's been incompetent as hell in every other action he's taken other than that one and was a prick to the niece he's actually related to by blood.
Most of them seem upset about the miniskirt remark, but since he's not portrayed as being a good person and his lechery isn't glorified, I think they ought to chill.
If they're mad at him because of Vic, I sorta don't blame them. Dude's a bit of a scumbag.
Gotta agree. I don't NOT like Qrow, but he's not exactly all that. If someone came to us with Qrow as their OC, we'd have laughed them off the board as being an anime edgelord, but he appeared on the show to acclaim.
I think the white type is that restraint, or the probe beams. The yellow one is likely time-dilation, though I would have thought it was lightning.
She doesn't really seem to use much for anything else besides Ice though. I get it's supposed to be part of her theme, but still
But anon, didn't you see how when Ruby asked him if he missed her, he said no. and not only that, after he verbally assaulted her, he physically laid a hand on her, striking her forehead in a downward motion.
And they let this sick bastard near children.
>He's a smart guy, he's aware there's something amiss, and he's aware that his niece, while violent, wouldn't do something like that without provocation
So instead of trying to comfort his niece even if it's while trying to keep that secret he calls her that?
I believe the implication is that the haste effect is another glyph Weiss can use, similar to her platforms and eventually summoning - no idea if it's directly related to her dust loadout.
And before anybody says "Glyphs aren't Weiss semblance", go watch Forever Fall pt 2 again
It's fair to point out that Qrow seems to relate to the scarecrow of Wizard of Oz, the character who "has no brain". So he comes across as a drunken idiot but he knows more than he lets on. He's not pleasant, but he tends not to outright lie, even to Ruby and Yang. I still think when he's saying Yang is "lying or crazy", he's referring to the fact that unless she can prove otherwise, this is what most people she meets will say to her. So she better get used to it.
Unno why people need to defend qrow, he's a prick. Its his character, he sees whats on the horizon and doesn't think humanity really stands a chance against it. He'd have probably followed his sister had she not told him to keep an eye on the kids. (headcanon yes but still I wanna believe that's why he's still around)
Most of all I don't think he believes that Yang needs coddling. Given his background and their upbringing as child soldiers (really weird when you think about this world right?) I wouldn't expect Qrow to go "Oh don't worry hun we're gonna figure this out and everything will be sunshine and roses"
He'll say it like it is, telling her what she's going to have to expect when she goes up to whatever board she'll be facing when it comes to disciplinary action.
He's a prick, but he's not heartless.
The argument is that Qrow started it to get a rise out of Winter, who for the most part managed to keep her cool, but when Qrow started going after Ironwood she's on him in a second.
He started it, but since she was the responsible high-ranking soldier, she was expected to not escalate it.
This also relates back to some stuff that came up a few threads ago specifically about Yang - who is a "natural talent" and who as far as we can tell hasn't really had to deal with hardship or failure, probably why she obsesses over the mystery with her mom so much, it's the only problem she can't solve.
Qrow's laying it on heavy because Yang should accept the possibility of failing or being wrong and how other people are gonna treat her. Considering Raven "has an odd way of looking at the world" and ran away because she "did something terrible", I'd wonder if Qrow hasn't seen a person go through something similar before in his life.
>After they were straight up SHOWN violently attacking a person unprovoked. (to everyone else's eyes but Yang)
He ain't gonna do anything but be the cool uncle who lays down the hard truths. She wants a father she's got one.
Today on the skytrain I saw a girl who looked just like Ruby, had a red sweater and beanie hat, pale skin, red shoulder length hair, skinny, cute nose and everything.
Made being a wageslave so much better
That's not what I meant.
What I meant was that her father didn't just fight a bunch of guys with illusion faces and is acutely aware of the fact that some secret force is pulling the strings to get access to the fall maiden.
Noctis and friends now replace team SSSN. What happens?
>Qrow goes to RWBY's dorm to comfort Yang
>"Look, your dad made it here too to see if you were okay"
>He points out the window, and far in the distance is a tiny yellow cluster of pixels that's barely visible
>It was actually just an animation error that they were too lazy to fix so they made up an excuse
I always thought he was just busy teaching at Signal Academy and thus couldn't make it out.
Honestly I think the fact that he showed up, and was there talking to her was him showing he cared.
Again I'm not claiming the way he helped her was healthy, You won't find me finding much about this character as a "Healthy Emotionally Well Adjusted Adult" He's not. But we shouldn't take his emotionally stunted ways as "He doesn't care"
I actually want to see more of that, because looking back at the episode, she is very defensive of Ironwood, even outside the fight. Considering what we know about Papa Schnee, it makes me wonder if she views him as a sort of replacement father figure.
I didn't even read it but capped anyways just for you
I like this image most of all.
i want everyone to think yang is the bee's knees!
>The Schnees foisted it on him to get leverage.
>Ironwood is disgusted by the whole affair.
>Gives Winter her own room. Tells her that he doesn't expect her to do anything she doesn't want to.
is actually the Pyrrha of her generation.
