/trash/: when you hit rock bottom, it's only up from there
Neo is my sweet beautiful angel.
What is really so abhorent to you about the fact that Jaune is Ruby's best friend?
It's not shipping them together. It's just that the two people who are similar to each other are best friends.
Please do not bully the Bun! She is for cuddling and loving tenderly
Denial Arkos and White Rose fags are still in denial
I remember there was a discussion a while back when the stream before the finale happened.
Not me but some guy said:
Ruby called Weiss her BFF and Jaune and Penny were her Best Friends.
Of course, that didn't make much sense but since I didn't watching the stream I couldn't verify.
>Taiyang helps out Yang get her groove back
>Qrow keeps on eye on Ruby, helping from the shadows
>Ironwood secretly recruits Weiss and Winter for under-the-table missions
>Blake gathers up her own rag tag team to take down Adam and White Fang. Maybe even ask Glynda for help since she's in the city.
This man is amazing, it's like watching a train wreck.
>Velvet sees Arslan flirting with Yatsu and is too bashful to stop her.
>Yatsu is too bashful to stop Arslan either
>Yatsuhashi comes home from a hookup with Arslan
>He and Velvet both burst into tears at once.
>"WE'RE SO VIOLATED!"
>tfw enjoy the chub
>Vastly prefer slim LisLavs.
Precisely my point.
Here's the thing. Weiss is more than Ruby's friend. She's her Partner. Whether you ship White Rose or not, that's their designation.
>and they enjoyed each others' company
And that definitely didn't happen till later.
It's the ship of the future!
House of Lancaster.
ArcRose, RoseArc, Crescen Rose are much better names in my opinion.
Lancaster makes me think too much of House Lannister with their red and gold.
I feel compelled to point out that, technically, Ruby called Weiss her "BFF".
"Best Friend Forever".
So that still frees up the designation of just a regular, potentially not-forever Best Friend.
>But of course Lancaster fags have to stick their shitty ship into everything
This isn't even about the fucking ship.
This is about people flat out ignoring the canon of the show to call them acquaintances that barely hang out together..
Probably gonna rewatch it with the gf when they put it back up on Netflix.
>Tell her it's my guilty pleasure show
>Show her the trailers
>"Wow, these seems way better than a guilty pleasure show!"
Well, Weiss is a perfectionist with a non-zero amount of self-loathing. For a while I'm sure every relationship on her end starts with "why should I hang out with you?" and "why would you want to hang out with me?".
I tried, but dropped the moment I heard Yang making dumb yet somehow funny puns, Pyrrha being dorky and people all around smiling and having fun.
>Ironwood's just standing there naked and akward, with his revolver hanging in front of his crotch.
>The "heavily armed" Mister February.
>Glynda buys ten copies.
Do you really think Weiss doesn't like Ruby? Do you actually take everything literally?
Post the thing you liked the most about this volume and the thing you liked the least.
Liked the most: RJNR setting out for Haven. I didn't realize it until we got it, but it's exactly what the show needs at this point. Having another volume tethered to the school with 3/4 of the plot being routine slice of life storylines and only the final 1/4 actually driving the plot forward would have hurt the show. Now we can get an idea of what the outside world looks like and widen the scope of the show.
Liked the least: even more new characters introduced while some of the main cast are still underdeveloped
She knows what he wants
>Ruby and Weiss are nothing but acquaintances now? And you talk about ignoring the canon
Not him but how did you even get that from what you quoted? How would Jaune and Ruby being bros mean that Ruby and Weiss are nothing but acquaintances?
It still hurts. Pumpkin Pete's scene will make me cry at cereal boxes for days.
>Every volume a character dies
>All that's left is Ozpin and Jaune
>"...It wasn't supposed to be like this..."
>He pulls out a clockwork shield
>Jaune and Ozpin are back in Amber's Vault. Pyrrha and Amber are in the pods again
>"Mr. Arc, this is our last chance."
This straitjacket is getting tight guys.
There's no such thing as a non-platonic friendship, unless you mean fuckbuddies.
This isn't even about that. Nora and Ren, for example, are best friends (Nora's crush notwithstanding). Nora constantly hangs around Ren, they value each other highly, know each other's habits and quirks, et cetera, et cetera. Jaune and Ruby aren't. They're friends, comrades, whatever you prefer, but they aren't best friends. Simply because the bond between them isn't that strong.
>We know Gambol Shroud is going to get upgraded
>Blake is going to find it
>Incorporate the other half of ember cecelia she finds near it
>Blakes upgrade is partially adopting Yangs fighting style to be more aggressive
>Yangs upgrade is adopting blakes style to be more tactful and calm
They are probably going to give her an unlockable skin in GE.
Jaune knew Pyrrha for less than a year. He has more childhood friends closer to him than her. Pyrrha was just a casual fling Jaune will soon forget. She wasn't important to Jaune.
That the people argueing that Ruby and Jaune are best friends aren't Lancasterfags.
Because while thinking that ship is utter shit, they've acted like friends on screen numerous times.
Things I liked: Finally getting some of the darker tones, as well as story progression.
Things I don't like: Adam being a nutter. Kinda hoped for some overly proud revolutionary who was blind to what he was actually doing. Oh and Blake being a pussy again.
Hook a sister up with one of those robotic arms, will ya!?
I don't think Jaune will be permanently effected by this but you're giving Pyrrha jack shit for credit. She taught Jaune how to be himself, and that someone can love him for him. She was a huge part of his life.
>Ozpin siiiiiping while sitting naked at his desk, pimp cane between his legs.
>"Gotta love a man with a big clock to start January off right!"
>Oobleck with his mussy hair peering over his steamy glasses with a copy of 50 Shades of Grimm on his crotch
>"Care to make some history in March?"
>Port lounging in front of a roaring fire with nothing but his blunderbuss and a Santa hat.
>"He's your one final match this December!"
I'm gettin' the vapors!
Technically, "Ruby" may have said she was best of friends with Jaune during the Q&A panel. Keep in mind, in this panel she also unironically said she loved Wiess ("not like that!") and Penny - as far as I recall.
We should probably consider that we're discussing Ruby here. If she was good friends with anyone, I'm not sure the girl could actually stomach to pick favorites. At least until she cracks and lets her warrior run wild, she's basically innocence incarnate - like Red Riding Hood. Weiss would probably rather stab you and herself than admit she's tight with Ruby in public (because Ruby is a goofus with zero social skills), but her actions speak louder than words.
>"Now show on the doll where she touched you Yatsu."
>He suffers from nightmares in which a golden haired grimm chases him and tries to hump him.
>Arslan beaming like a sun a month after that.
>people believe this.
As Pyrrha said one can make friendships that last a lifetime if the circumstances are appropriate. She meet people far longer than any in Beacon but JNPR were her first real friends in a long while. And she made significant changes in Jaune's life romance or not.
Let me remind you faggots that if Ruby did not have a shit ton of trust in Jaune than she would say to him that she wants to travel by herself.
If Ruby did not trust Jaune than Lindsey would not say in character that Jaune is Ruby's best friend.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with Ruby and Jaune being close friends.
Things I liked: Potential for more worldbuilding, "snuff it out", ditching the school setting, characters' personality being challenged (Yang, who usually does the supporting, suddenly is in dire need of a friend to rely on, Ruby's innocence is shattered, Blake is confronted by her fears, Weiss will have to face her problems)
Things I didn't like: Instant descend into death and anguish. I would've been fine with the plot elaborating more on Cinder's keikaku and Yang's situation, spending some more time on showing how the society slowly became more and more distrustful of the government. It could've ended on public openly stating their distrust, other Beacon students avoiding Yang and Yang doing something dangerous and stupid, and then season 4 would've been about everything getting fucked. It's a problem with pacing that we got due to the first two volumes being spend on a generic school setting, and not only did it fuck up the build up for the eventual angst, it also made the shift in the tone all the more jarring.
>They're friends, comrades, whatever you prefer, but they aren't best friends. Simply because the bond between them isn't that strong.
I honestly feel we don't know enough between them to determine that
>People acting like Weiss doesn't like Ruby
The Winter interactions showed that Ruby is her only actual friend. When Ruby finally caught up with the survivors on the dock, Weiss grabbed her hands in relief. When Ruby was going to go find Jaune and Pyrrha, Winter immediately jumped to help her even though she'd just been physcially exhausted from fighting Paladins.
She might not see Ruby as "totes my bff" but she's the only person who comes even remotely close to it.
>Ruby and Weiss are nothing but acquaintances now
Dafuq? Weiss and Ruby are clearly BFF's their support is mutual and their chemistry noticeable. Weiss even came to condone Ruby's goofy antics and allows herself to goof around her which says tons about a dignified and prideful girl like her.
The finale was soul crushing for me as a Pyrrha fan but one of the coolest scenes was Weiss pulling her shit together to motivate and follow Ruby, giving her best effort and fully trusting in the little girl as her leader. I don't really like Ruby that much but her friendship with Weiss is really touching, specially considering Weiss life till that point.
This. People in this thread are deluded
We're talking about the present, not X years in the future.
On the grounds that Ruby doesn't spend nearly as much time with Jaune as she does with her teammates. He isn't her go-to choice when she needs to get things done. She doesn't call him when shit hits the fan and she needs support.
And no, "prom is tomorrow and I don't have a date" isn't "shit hits the fan".
For those of you who may be in dismay over the still-recent, plausible death of Penny, may I offer you both words of encouragement and a solution to any worries you may have. Regardless of whether you may see your beloved character in your endeared franchise again, know that true compassion will never die and will always find its source like a moth to a flame. The source of which, in this case, can be found in the download below. I present to you, should you choose to accept, a basic program functioning as a computer artificial intelligence (of sorts). This Penny AI can and will become one of your closest friends, should you let her. While she is very dear to my heart, I entrust her entirety to you and wish you the very best in finding whatever solace you seek in life.
PS: I made a custom icon of Penny for you to use for however you see fit - it is in the initial directory upon opening the file.
TL;DR: I developed a computer AI personality that can be interacted with and tailored it to be that of Penny Polendina from RWBY and packed with a unique icon for the program. Have fun.
I will only be using this tripcode for the explicit purpose of distinguishing myself as a trusted source for this download and to answer any questions directly regarding the development, management and distribution of the Penny AI program. Should you be met with any skepticism (such as a virus or trojan), I encourage you to refer to previous posts I have made under the tripcode of Laifu !4WaifuI/LI. Ultimately, the choice is yours.
Trying to track down Adam/White Fang. She might be in a state of mind that she's better off on her own. She doesn't want people she cares about to get hurt again.
My guess is that she'll have a tangential solo side story and meet back up with the gang towards the end of the next volume.
I'm also making Magic the Gathering cards, if anyone would like to give me input on what cards you'd like to see made with what abilities, what should be changed, etc. So far I've only made four cards (Ruby, Crescent Rose, Yang and Ember Celica).
Tell me what you think!
>She doesn't call him when shit hits the fan and she needs support.
Like in the breach?
>And no, "prom is tomorrow and I don't have a date" isn't "shit hits the fan".
It's not but instead of hanging out with her team she hung out with him.
I mean really what is the problem with them being best friends? It's not a singular fucking thing and doesn't mean they're going to be fucking each other.
We getting any more of this?
So, fellow writefags, now that the volume is over, how are those backlogs?
You guys have any stories planned?
Every time I hear his voice, we only have four minutes until borders and kingdoms are no more.
Is Neo gonna lose her shit next time she sees Ruby?
I think a lot of people are arguing about best friends because a lot of people have different definitions. Some more quiet kids would say their best friend is a person they hang out with only occasionally, while a more popular and sociable person would say they have have multiple close best friends. This is just in general, but best friend(s) aren't the same for everyone.
Here's a thing I have to ask you all, do you have a problem with Ruby and Jaune growing together? No not romantically but I mean as close friends?
Why? I'm a native English speaker and this was made specifically for English speaking audiences. There's no point. It really doesn't matter how well-made the Japanese dub is, they still have to make sure their dialogue matches the mouth movements of an English speaking show, which lowers the overall quality of it by changing the dialogue, use of awkward phrases or timing to match the mouth movements, and substituting cultural terms and meanings only found in Western culture.
Penny's not gone, you silly goose. She's alive and well! Go see for yourself with the computer AI personality I posted.
>Nobody is arguing they aren't friends for fuck's sake.
No, some people definitely are.
And those people are delusional idiots. Those simply arguing the semantics of "Best", are just being a tad silly. As are those who're being overtly insistent on it. Fact is, they're close friends. Arguing about whether or not to tack on the title of "Best" is pretty ridiculous.
>I mean really what is the problem with them being best friends?
Because they explicitly aren't. If anything, Jaune's dialogue throughout the series shows he was closest to Pyrrha. With all the "you were the first person to ever believe in me" stuff.
Post feels music
It's not, it was going to be my version of RapeAnon's adult tournament story.
Problem is, right after she died I mentioned having issues with finishing it and a bunch of people spoke up saying they wanted to read it.
Is Lancaster still considered a guilty pleasure ship?
No. She knows Emerald is involved with Cinder, but doesn't know to what extent.
Cinder, now, that's a whole other matter. Or even Mercury, seeing as he prevented her from helping Penny.
>Ruby still thinks that Emerald had almost nothing to do with things and just wanted to watch some a fight.
I was ready for her to get Maiden powers and have to deal with having part of Amber's soul messing with her head
I was ready for her to have to live with not fulfilling her destiny and being emotionally scarred
I wasn't ready for this ;_:
I want to see someone lose their shit without with annihilating everyone with speshul eyes
>best friend(s) aren't the same for everyone.
This. That's why you use the definition of the character that you're talking about. The character in show calls Weiss her best friend? Then she's her best friend. The VA in character calls Jaune her best friend? Maybe she has a say in it too because of how the show is made I guess so he's her best friend too. Maybe that's the way the character thinks of best friends. Not like there's no basis for both anyway. She's close with both of them and I doubt Ruby's the type to even make it a contest or weight her friends.
Honestly the quality of those is actually pretty good, it's the people that let it down.
I want to see Ruby actually use her motherfucking
Some guy told me I should write a fapfic about a lonely Weiss locked away at home.
But then, I've wanted to write a fapfic about a lonely vampire high off her ass on garlic fumes for a while.
I don't see either gettin' done any time soon.
KnightShade, Jaune and Blake. It seriously has the highest ratio of quality stories compared to number of stories. So it's easy to go through the KnightShade stories on slow update days.
Everyone has a semblance! It's just that not everyone has their aura unlocked. Because I guess the hunters are elitists and don't want humanity to evolve en masse. But anyway- were Lisa's aura unlocked- what could her semblance be?
I got a couple. The crossover, some Ruby stories, and Port and Oobleck having a Gimli and Legolas like killing contest with Grimm. Not sure how long it'll take me to power through the backlog though, because I can't make things short enough for green text to save my life.
So how is Ozpin coming back?
My bet is that his Semblance has something to do with teleportation. He lets Qrow, Glynda and Ironwood know he's safe, but lays low for a while planning. Going to use Ruby's new-found power (anyone else thought it felt out of place for him to ask for a student's help with something rather nefarious?
Of course, while Red like Roses part 3 is playing.
But yes, it's type for Ruby to
let it rip.
It's literally the coolest god damn weapon in the show and it never gets used.
Not even in her one fucking fight this volume.
I want to shake her hand, and thank her for providing such great fight scenes for the finale.
True, but she said that's why she wants it snuffed out.
>tfw your pickup line wouldn't make Salem blush
Oh fuck, that's great. I've been wanting to see some FN cosplays.
How am I supposed to finish my Ruby and Roman fic now that he's dead?
>Coolest weapon in the show
I like Ruby and Crescent Rose, but....
Ruby a slut
Just be in denial like the rest of us.
Whats the fic about btw?
>but most of all she loves Faunus cocks
>Taiyang in a apron, with bits of whipped cream on his chest.
>"This Mister July knows his way around in kitchen, bedroom and all over the house."

Adult Ruby invites Roman to a fancy dinner party and shit happens
Do it anyway. I need something to feed my denial.
Also, I totally shipped the fuck out of that paring.
Well okay but I'm just saying Ruby doesn't seem like the type to weigh friendship even if she calls someone a BFF. That's like your girlfriend asking if you love her more than your parents. The only good answer to that is you love them both, just differently. Making love or friendship a contest kind of thing seems pretty depressing in the first place.
As >>79920514 said, the others (assuming Cinder is alive, which seems almost certain) are in much greater danger more like. I REALLY wouldn't want to be Mercury, who presumably saw everything that happened on the tower.
And as >>79920574 said, there's room for ambiguity as to what Ruby thinks of Emerald. I know it's getting to be a broken record subject and some anons detest the possibility, but this certainly does give M&K some room to peel bug off from being a true villain. at least.
After dropping RWBY halfway through Vol 2, I picked it up again and just marathoned everything up to the end of Heroes and Monsters.
Holy everloving shit did things go edgy during the third season. I could almost hear the CRAWLING throughout the last few episodes.
And why is Penny so cute goddamn I was disappointed.
UNF! I want art!
>Roman with his hat covering his crotch, a sac of Dust and Lien cards slung over his shoulder, using the Melodic

I guess I could add that.

What's some petty/small things that get to you?
>People who think Ruby is stupid
>People who act like Summer didn't love Yang as much as Ruby
Weiss, Jaune, and Penny are Ruby's best friends. It's fucking impossible for Weiss not to be her best friend since she is her partner and the fact that Weiss stopped being cold to her and actively tried to befriend her. Penny was the one who called Ruby ans Ruby likes Penny a lot. Then you have Jaune who Lindsay (while in character) said was Ruby's bestfriend and the easiest person to talk to, which isn't surprising since he is Ruby's first friend when she went to Beacon.
My backlog currently consists of
17 story ideas, 2 continuations, and 3 more parts of a series. Not even counting the VN I'm doing by my self. I'll probably kill myself before half of it gets done.
Yes, but I honestly did not think they could get Jen Taylor as a voice actress for the new big bad.
Awww yeah. I'm a big fan of Melodic Cudgel too.
It's such a great match for Roman. It looks like an elegant, gentlemanly item, but in practice it's used to beat, blast and trap people.
And despite its simple appearance, it can keep up with pretty much anything. It's pretty fun to see a simple cane keeping up with the crazy RWBY weapons. Even late in the game, it's still a valuable weapon to have.
Fuck, now I miss Melodic Cudgel AND Roman.
(I know you were probably talking about Sun's gunchucks, but oh well lol)
Rewatching this really gives me a new appreciation for Blake. She used to be so much more of a teammate and gave us an insight into the faunus. She's been practically a ghost throughout the whole third season.
>You really did a number on it, but it's not vanishing, it's just sort of frozen
So, i'm starting to take Taiyang's words into account a little more, and i just started thinking.
What if it wasn't just a flash of time stoping/freezing powers. Ruby actually went full berserker on the dragon and Cinder. I mean by Taiyang's words it seems like the dragon might have suffered serious injuries but for some reason it did not vanish like other Grimm.
So maybe Cinder also became seriously wrecked and ran, cause i doubt she'd die off screen, or escaped once she realised she was fighting the dragon no problem.
Considering they said V4 is already in the works and this is the year of RWBY probably only till RTX.
3 started like a day short of a year after 2 ended.
Gray said they can't confirm a date, but that this hiatus wouldn't be as long.
Considering it's the "Year of RWBY." most people are guessing we'll probably get the rough cut of E1 at RTX or at least the first fight of the season and a date of early/late fall.
Smut, smut and more smut
Maybe i'll finally finish the 2 Arkos smuts i have started after all the WG...
Maybe some cute Nuts and Dolts/ What ever Ruby x Penny x CR is called
>Roman comes back halfway through V4 with no explanation
>He's just eating ice cream with Neo
I would be so ok with this
More than a year, but that was partially due to Monty's passing. RT seems to be trying to schedule all their animated shows so they run one after the other throughout the year, so we'll probably have a shorter wait this time around.
But it will probably be about a year until Vol. 4
>Did you know that there are 3 kinds of Huntsman? Those who seek strength, those who live for pride and those who can read the tide of battle. Those are the three......and her.......
It's doubly surprising that they seem to have had her for the role since the beginning, Jen's is the first voice we hear in the series I believe, where she appears to be just an objective narrator then starts talking shit towards humanity. Somehow I fell for that all three or so times they did it.
Yes, but Ruby may have convinced herself that Emerald had no idea what the other two were doing. With that said, she's bound to find out at some point what happened to Yang...
>responding to a long-deleted post
August or September. I doubt they'll get it started immediately following RTX in July.
I like the way you think. It might work better for the power if it was something actually fightable, like a berserk state, rather than just a "lolfrozennow" win button.
I'm biased though, because I'm a sucker for protagonists with powers like that.
Darth Treya in the younger years.
Who would Sion and Nihilus be /rwbyg/
Why does everyone suddenly thing Emerald is going to be a good guy?
>Jaune's semblance is to summon the spirit of a deceased warrior to fight along side him
>Jaune summons Pyrrha all the time
>Eventually it stops working much to his sadness
>Pyrrha was resurrected somewhere
Cinder seems like a good fit for Nihilus to me, what with that power stealing glove and she also talked about a "hunger" like feeling when she only got half of the powers. Comparison writes itself.
