A somewhat sorted fic list http://pastebin.com/NyBwmzVf
Ship list: http://pastebin.com/UAxYa3Nk
I think that's most of the ships in the list, if not bitch about it in thread and I'll try to add it.
New thread, new discussions
>what are you reading?
>are any of you writing fics?
>thoughts on the newest episodes?
Well, this is the new thumbnail for the shitty
World of should-be-in-the-show, likely the foreshadowing to who is going to become the maidens of the show
Starting off with some WhiteRose
I think I can guess what the next season will be now.
I'll bet the cast is going to split up at the end of this season. Beacon Academy will essentially be destroyed by the Grimm attack, and we'll start exploring the other places of the world. I don't know if it will be a thing where each of the four girls goes to one of the four kingdoms, or if it will be a lord of the rings scenario where half the cast (probably Blake and Yang) wind up on the front lines in the war against the Grimm, while the other half (probably Weiss and Ruby) chase down the actual villians. Also, Pyrrha will be removed from the story for a while, and Jaune will go through an arc where he either learns to stand on his own two feet, or he becomes edgier. I don't know if it will be next season or later, but I also think there will be an arc where Ruby has to angst-fight a rebuilt, evil Penny. If there is going to be another major death before the end of this season, I would guess Ozpin, to really drive home Beacon's destruction.
Running low on Ruby in formal wear but tiny sidetails I can do.
Agreed, factory reset Penny is probably the best outcome.
Henceforward. Kuma's future AU.
Probably Funblade's. I can't recall the whole story behind it past the inexplicable RWBY polyamory.
Not a fan of the art style either, but then again there aren't many things which compare to Kuma's works.
Never read. Anyone can do a tl;dr ?
>Not pointing out the minor Monochrome
>Not pointing out how gay Emerald is for Cinder.
Very insightful of you, thank /u/, sis.
His faces (I think it's the noses) can be a little off but I do like it because it's one of the few art styles that actually makes them look like adults in a future AU
>Ruby gets injured protecting Weiss from something or other, loses her right eye/arm because hooray for mutilating innocent characters
>Weiss gets a convoluted scar that makes a "+" with her already existing scar
>Blake and Yang are there too I guess, Yang transformed into she-man somewhere along the line
>Weiss' only purpose in life becomes angsting over Ruby literally every second of her existence despite RWBY being 100% polyamorous (gotta keep her fellow tumblrinas happy by not excluding any pairings) and Weiss is more or less the team's fucktoy
>This makes sense because "reasons"
That's about the only "story" it ever had before it devolved into being solely a conduit for the creator's self-indulgent and extraordinarily out-of-character sex fantasies, including, but not limited to:
genderbending, vampires, bondage, incest, humiliation, futa, and pegging.
...I mean, Henceforward has its own problems but Jesus Christ.
As much as I like the idea of a situation where white rose and bumblebee join forces in an open four way relationship (of all the group pairings somehow that was left out of the ship list, who knew?)
I don't think I want it like that.
I don't think I've seen a single polyamory fic which wasn't just pure smut. In any case I don't think that would be easy to write, making two characters pair up in a reasonable manner is hard enough.
Yeah, I realize it wouldn't necessarily be easy to make one that wasn't a smutfest but I think it'd be neat if there were a couple decent ones out there.
Just something different you know
The Gentle Art of Making Enemies is pretty suggestive but has only like two actual lewd scenes. It's good.
And Yang from the future au doesn't really looke like a dude at all.
More like a four way relationship instead of an open one.
They're not bringing in Pyrrha or something.
What, can't like something different from the legion of white rose/bumblebee I read?
Actual plot is happening
Shit is hitting the fan
First time a major character has (possibly) died.
But suffering is the best
this would give me serious feels if it didn't look like Blake is molesting Yang. I mean hands almost on her boobs and between legs?
We all deal with our suffering in different ways
That was actually pretty good. Will have to add to my list to check updates for.
In character panel from RTX Austrailia 2016.
Notable /u/-related questions:
>What do you think of the ships White Rose and Yang and Blake
Barb/Yang - Bumblebee!
Lindsay/Ruby - Yang loves Bumblebee. Umm, Weiss can be kinda mean sometimes, but I know she doesn't mean it, she's just really insecure. So, I love her. As a teammate. And a friend.
>Which boys at beacon do you like the most?
Barb/Yang - Pfft, who has time for boys? Geeze.
Lindsay/Ruby - Hegh.
Barb/Yang - We're busy fighting Grimm out there.
Lindsay/Ruby - Yeah, I'm not interested, whatever.
Barb/Yang - Although, I gotta say, that Scarlet fella.
>Well what about the girls?
Lindsay/Ruby - Ooh.
Barb/Yang - Well I mean, Blake's my number one. Of course.
Lindsay/Ruby - Penny's my best friend. I love her so much.
>If you had to swap outfits with one other character, who would it be?
Barb/Yang - I would probably pick ooh, That g- I don't like that girl, but that Neon Katt had a pretty sweet outfit. I'll take it off her, and then she'll have no clothes.
Lindsay/Ruby - Woaah, alright.
Barb/Yang - Wink.
Wow. This is like the worst set of tags you can find on sadpanda. Also as much as everyone seems to fucking love Enabler, it's a crack ship. Incest sounds like a funny fetish but in terms of story, it's garbage. Every single pseudo /u/ interaction they have could be explained by sisterly love and not love love. And every person in their right mind would fuck their sister, be it in-law or not.
As someone with five sisters...well, I can't deny the thought's been there, but THINKING of something and actually ACTING on it are two WAY different things, especially in the case of fucking blood relations.
That said, incest stories/porn CAN be done well, it's just...well, I haven't seen in in the case of this particular pairing.
>everyone seems to fucking love Enabler
Get your fucking head checked you Nancy boy, the fans of the pairing in the thread are well aware of how it is and are actually few in number.
Also I didn't think it was possible for some net denizen to be squeamish about incest. Let alone lesbian incest. Did you somehow stumble into this corner of the net from fuck book?
Incest angst is great. Too bad I hate Yang so Enabler can't be enjoyable.
You forgot that one part Barb and Lindsay talk about who they could swap hairs with, and both answer Weiss.
R: "Really cause I like Weiss so much."
Y: "Get a room."
R: "Wow, relax."
Barb is the best shipper amongst us.
>Weiss and Yang arguing over who Ruby loves more
Why has this not happened yet?
Scarlet Soul is the best (and only, pretty much) non-smut one I've seen.
Of course. But the het ships are more clarified in the show than the yuri ones. People don't need goggles to see those ships
If you ever have to ask yourself "Should I bring [person who does not regularly visit 4chan] to [board on 4chan]" the answer is 99 times out of a 100 no you should not.
Perhaps she wouldn't even look at the link. Either because she actually scrolls over it, has someone else do her twitterwork who doesn't give a fuck, or simply doesn't click on it because it says 4chan. Perhaps she knows 4chans reputation which is essentially what's going on on /b/ among most people who don't browse 4chan themselves. At least among people I know...
What kind of dialogue would fit here best?
You could always, you know, make it Bumbleby.
Plus, what's the worst that could happen? Barb and Arryn are well aware of the status of the yuri part of the fandom.
If this isn't what you're looking for, color me interested.
Oh damn, Bloodgulchblue deleted his fanfiction accounts. Inquisitor had some pretty good Freezerburn breathplay in it and not it's gone.
Should I start hoarding smut in case a world war breaks out or something?
Finished a short one few days ago, which so far has gotten 5 views.
Probably because I didn't tag any couples.
Pondering how to write something about CrossHares, which is the superior couple.
>Reading a white rose or bumbleby fic
>CrossHares shows up
>Fic instantly improves
The best part of that Innocence fic that was so good were the Coco and Velvet chapters.
Man, this show got a lot more interesting these past few weeks.
Could still be ruined by a Glynda wand wave.
We'll have to wait and see.
She probably scrolled past it because
she was already here with /u/s.
When your ship is completely underrepresented.
>Weiss being needy and bugging Ruby for attention
I cannot express how much I love this and there's so little of it.
I'm just saying, if Barb were in these threads, she should probably tell the rest of the crew to make sure Neo stays mute.
Catnip and The Dark & The Light are pretty good.
She doesn't have that much power in the long run, but a suggestion from her during a convention would be a start
>real best pairing
why would a monochrome comic align with white rose tho?
Holy fuck they look nothing like who they're based off of, the only RWBY thing in the image is the stuffed grim toy.
Why is Blake male and more importantly why does... it look like it just walked off the set of Mad Max?
AKA SJW incarnate. She'd be a good writer if she was capable of writing anything that isn't overflowing with SJW bullshit.
How do you people find stuff like this? Browsing the tags there normally never got me something like this.
At the end it doesn't seem worse than, say, our Samus x Peach artwork. Also completely OOC, but why should anyone care?
It's the exact same thing.
Pic related, and still one of the hottest pieces of fanart I've ever found.
98% of the images here are OOC since none of the characters have shown any interest in girls. Being OOC is a borderline requirement, people are shitting on the image since the characters don't even remotely look like their canon counterparts.
Any good Crosshares fics?
They usually show up in the background or as side characters (because that's what they are in the show I realize) in fics involving whatever combination of RWBY pairings, but just wanted to see if anyone knew of any good ones that focused on them.
bonus bonus points for Yang defending Blake and screwing up in the fight and Blake having to save her ass, calling her an idiot while carrying her to the infirmary
Make it happen Barb
so valentines days gonna be coming up soon, and I wanna write a short fic for it. Shoot me some ideas, sisters
Anyone else buying this?
stabbing Yang in an attempt to rejoin and infiltrate the white fang
it feeds me
Something involving Crosshares or the LaW if that isn't to much. Maybe a date between the selected couple or something.
Perhaps Yang asking Velvet what she thinks Blake might prefer for Valentine's day since they're both faunas and she might have a better idea.
Im down for that
Maybe add some rubles having a mental break down as her sister is betrayed by her partner, having Weiss comfort her, leading to some
>not liking WR
How do you survive in these threads?
I don't dislike it. It's frequently cute, but in general I find the pairing pretty boring. Which is why I realized it really wasn't worth the money for me; even if it's a pretty adorable and very reasonably priced postcard.
Also I partially survive by reminding people Weiss
doesn't have a good head on her shoulders.
You don't have to be so tsuntsun, imouto.
A Ladybug's Instincts isn't bad, especially now that there is some plot going on.
Bumblebee interaction! Teacher versus Student standoff! Ironwood wrecking shit!
The hype is here.
jesus christ has nothing to do here. unless he and all his apostles are actually a woman screw each other.
no pictures of Weiss
or anybody else for that mattercomforting a crying Ruby over the loss of Penny in the last episode?
come on, we don't have much time before canon destroys any blissful illusions we might have.
New chapter of Love is Blind is up sisters
>New episode with actual plot
>New good fics being updated
I am content
That has to be the most uncomfortable sleeping position ever. Did they doze off in the cafeteria or something since everyone seems to be around?
Better yet, have Blake blow up at Yang for thinking that she's a fucking house cat and storming out.
Make-up hand-holding is best hand-holding
I'd give me left arm for Blake and Yang to team up to fight Adam then team up to fight Neo.
So I'm not the only one who hopes the writer is just fucking with us here?
I have a fic idea and I need your thoughts, sisters.
>Winter Schnee had a secret relationship with another girl in her academy days
>Broke it off because the other girl wouldn't give up her faunus friends + pressure from Papa Schnee
>Weiss finds out when the ex and her huntress team are hired by Ozpin to do stuff
>Finding out her sister is closeted gay makes her reevaluate her repressed feelings for Ruby
>Slow White Rose with a side of Bumblebee and Crosshares
>Neptune is a butt monkey now and forever
What say /u/?
After seeing these threads I gave RWBY a watch. Took about a week.
I really like it, the first time I tried watching it the animation put me off so I gave up on it, but this time I'm really fond of it. The soundtrack is fucking phenomenal. Wish I could have had this appreciation for it before Monty died, I'm surprised they managed to continue it even after his death.
It's good isn't it. Does have its flaws though (cough *Team SSSN* cough). Season three truly has been the best season yet in everything but fight scenes, in which there has been a noticeable drop in quality. Also needs more Canon Yuri.
How popular are all of Blake's yuri ships? I'm talking Monochrome, Bumblebee, and Ladybug. I'm just curious
All the ladies of RWBY are pretty shippable, Anon. I do think Blake is easy to pair with people because she's your standard "quiet, haunted, smart" character, but since all the girls are archetypes you'll find they're all popular. (Except for Enabler, because people don't know what they're missing.)
You know, I've come to the realization that not actually being a part of this fandom is pretty great. I have no set loyalty to any pairing so I can pretty easily enjoy any of them without being bothered by anything in the actual canon. Right now I'm enjoying some YangxWeiss and before that NeoxRuby is pretty enjoyable too.
Man, jumping into these threads to feed off the fanworks has done nothing but pay off for me.
I was originally only here because for some reason this fandom serves my occasional need for suffering better than any other right now.
Doesn't matter to me!~ I get to enjoy the all the fics and art just as mush as if they were the most pairable! Give it a shot sometimes onee-san. Being ignorant really is bliss if it means more yuri goodness on my plate
Apparently, these are the models used in Grimm Eclipse. It's not perfect, but it's something
So, did you just come here to say that, sis?
Because this isn't /aco/. A lot of sisters have more than one ship, and we're all on equal ground, considering we've all been dragged through the same mud
that doesn't mean we are not giving each other boatloads of shit.
I haven't been around for most of the last year but do we still have that one guy that liked to decapitate Weiss and corrupt Ruby with Cinder so much?
I always got that, that stuff was more in line with teasing and to remind us to not be so serious since we had a bunch of babby shippers that never experienced the pain of disappointment.
Yes our drawfriend is still around.
We have no idea, primarily because the trailer in which it appears has animation errors, but technically speaking it does appear after she's struck by the knight. People are confused because the scar is visible beside the blood, not to mention the simple fact that you don't get scars during combat, you get them afterwards.
RWBY: Come for the suffering, stay for the smut.
Was that too forward? I'm sorry if it was.
I'm pretty sure I'm the only one autistic enough to regularly recognize you so don't worry.
No, I'm kidding.
I didn't expect anyone noticed outside of the times I occasionally make it apparent. But I post pretty actively, and I think I have a fairly distinct style of writing so I imagine you don't have to be that autistic to figure it out.
Who knows anon, maybe Weiss might finally save someone.
Oh who am I kidding, Weiss will forever be the homo in distress.
Different anon, but I've found that it's pretty easy to identify a lot of anons by the filenames on their pics. But I know how you feel, sometimes people feel the
needto call me out too. New shit coming eventually, I swear.
Sis please, Blake will fight a losing battle against Adam only to be rescued by Weiss and the Power of Friendship and Camaraderie™. Blake already saved Weiss' ass once.
Here's the link, sisters: http://wpc.1765A.taucdn.net/801765A/video/uploads/videos/066a0fe4-2f23-45a4-bc75-020634383ebb/index.m3u8
If you don't already know how it works, just plug it into here: http://osmfhls.kutu.ru/
Usually it's pretty easy to predict which one of the fics on my following list is going to cycle to the top but every now and then someone throws a curveball.
Also holy fucking shit that newest episode.
Ziz is loose and Ruby vs Neo is happening
Fuck yes, that new ep really leaves me at the edge of my seat for the next one so hard, I can't even complain about the fight animations properly.
This was an pretty great episode.
Nice team moments, some Monochrome, Ruby vs. Neo is happening, maybe Blake/Weiss/Yang vs. Adam, it's fantastic!
I'm so glad this show has gotten much better. I was on the edge of dropping it after Volume 2, but now it's really enjoyable.
So...Ruby vs Neo, who wins?
I vote for Winter taking Rubys spot. WWBY forever!
I'm really torn between wanting to see Ruby have a really badass moment she hasn't quite had since killing the Nevermore early on and also not wanting to see Neo lose.
ff.net has 144 Ladybug fics and 113 Monochrome ones. They're fairly equal.
There's a certain website with a rwby subsection that routinely has White Rose, Bumbleby art posted all the time on it.
I mean you got motherfuckers on facebook supporting in posts made by Monty that contain it.(RIP)
While I don't think White Rose will ever happen, it's posted about and talked about quite a bit on some of the larger social media sites.
Probably unpopular opinion. Don't you think Monty had a very strict idea of what he wanted the show to be, and since it was his creation, y'know, he wasn't open to other ideas. Because I see some correlation between his death and the fact that the show has gotten much, much better. No?
A great many people do root for Arkos but primarily because it's basically canon anyway.
Seeing that without the goggles on there is next to nothing indicating that BB or WR -or any of the other /u/ ships for that matter- would become canon they have a disproportionately large fanbases. And it's not just a vocal minority, a large majority of people are rooting for Bumblebee.
I mean, if I google image search "RWBY kiss" among the first FIFTY results there is only one Iceberg and two Lancaster, Renora and Arkos pics. The rest are all Pollination ships.
That's a lot of speculation. He died after season 2 and before season 3. We don't know how far in advance he got with the plot and how much Miles and Kerry are writing on their own or using his material.
I'm assuming all three of them had worked on a rough outline for the, if not entire plot of the series, at least the next couple seasons. A lot of what has happened in season 3 does build off what he wrote in season 2.
I think if you want to make the statement that without Monty it's gotten better you'll have to wait for season 4, which will probably be the first season where M&K have to start guiding it on their own.
I'm not saying you're wrong, you could be right. I just don't think we know enough information about what his vision was for the show to make that statement.
Weiss is best girl btw
I'd really like to not chalk up anything good to Monty's death.
...I'd adapt the Gode Geass two year slowpoke one, but I'm far to shitty at editing to make it look decent.
Either way. I will record your post number. When season five starts up, I'll reply with slowpoke.
Well, the primary reason for the increase in quality is because it's a franchise now. With a manga running in Japan, and a video game in the works, this series needs to make money. So now we almost definitely have some executive setting "goals" for each season, for example, if the writers try to pull a second prom arc, the exec will order it delayed until a set point in the story development has been achieved.
This is also the greatest hope for us, because if the exec sees how important the yuri fandom is to this series, we will certainly see that reflected in the show.
It could be them, you guys would probably know better than I, but usually these guys keep themselves in the background, and do their best to make it look like nothing in the company has changed. That way they don't have to worry about bad press from fans complaining about "corporate meddling".
I'm certainly no expert on these things, but the best way to find out who this (or these) executives are is to look at people involved in new hirings on the show. Typically, if that person has the authority to hire writers, animators, muscians, ect. then they have authority over the creative direction of the show.
/co/ did a nice story
it deals with the aftermath of RWBY vs Aliens
I wish Ruby would interact more with her teammates. like we see weiss call her a friend, but don't really see them do stuff like weiss and blake going out for tea, and yang and blake had that talk in season 2. but ruby just really hasnt interacted 1 on 1 with anyone besides penny, and penny was cool but I wish she would be having interactions with her teammates or at least blake and weiss.
She isn't the kind of person they'd hang out with.
Ruby herself points that out when she first drops into the Emerald Forest, that Blake is mysterious and aloof and likes books, but she didn't think she'd be able to hold a conversation with her.
Weiss is much the same, if she's going to go out, it's going to be classy, not the sort of affair you bring Ruby to.
The problem is that there is too much going on for them to just make some nice feel good team outing episodes. And before now we were being inundated with stupid
As much as I love JNPR I think they end up just taking up too much screen time from the team that's supposed to be the main characters.
Hell, even Nora and Ren end up just being side characters to the side characters on that team.
> she is gonna arrive just in time to see Neo impaling Ruby with her parasol.
Now imagine saying this out loud and someone who has no idea what RWBY is over hears.
We can assume being teammates for almost a year has made Ruby and Blake friends at the least. What baffles me the most is that the dialogue and RT employees (like Ruby's VA) state that Ruby and Penny are best friends when they've only interacted twice and don't appear to keep in touch.
Giving other shippers shit happened in the early days of RWBY when people were fairly new to this kind of goggle usage. Nowadays, not being a part of the multiship master race is a waste. The only shit that pops up is the occasional monochrome salt
If by "purity" you mean
an unstoppable embodiment of homosexual lust, then I wholeheartedly agree.
Weiss need not be embarrassed of her rampant lesbianism. When she finally comes out, she's got friends who will accept her with open arms.
Except Ruby, who'll accept her with open arms and legs.
Oh shes got plenty of things to be embarrassed of.
It's an emergency, I need the cutest, fluffiest Ladybug picture ever made!
>the cutest, fluffiest Ladybug picture ever made!
if it was possible to convert the ladybug diary from a fic to a picture, that's what it would be.
I think it's pretty obvious that Weiss and Ruby are best friends. I mean, I thought it was pretty obvious based on the growth of their friendship throughout the first two volumes, but they pretty much spelled it out for us early in volume 3:
>Ruby calls Weiss her BFF
>when Winter asks Weiss about making new friends, Weiss only mentions Ruby
100% relevant: http://archiveofourown.org/works/5853478
>Relationship: Weiss Schnee/Everyone
I like where this is going.
RT had a solid fanbase which kickstarted the RWBY fandom. Monty was big on encouraging people to make stuff on their own which probably helped.
There is also the non-insignificant factor that most important characters are cute girls with absurd weapons which alone covers a wide variety of interests
I don't think that's the case, maybe season 2 was bad because they needed to prepare for what was going to happen in season 3, they needed to give us some info and stuff, prepare the ground for shit to get real on season 3.
Two. Neptune single-handedly ruined that volume without even having the mention the plethora of other issues it had.
All you can really complain about for V1 that wasn't also a problem in V2 is the lack of Yang development.
I'm just surprised it took this long for a fic that had Weiss sleeping with every* girl in the series. Only ones left out were the twins and tournament randoms.
Can I just say how much I love that the entire fandom, even outside of /u/, has accepted how astonishingly gay Weiss is?
There's no way people couldn't, sis.
Her levels of gay are undeniable. Anyone claiming she isn't is lying to themselves.
Now I really want to see the Maiden-Pyrrha vs Cinder fight.
>Massive fight going on in underground chamber
>RWBY/good guys desperately holding off Cinder et al while Maiden transfer is taking place
>Maiden powers successfully transferred to Pyrrha
>She emerges and immediately charges at Cinder
>epic fight choreographed by Monty as his final work
>Cinder pulls underhanded tactic and overpowers Pyrrha
>Pyrrha screams as her aura breaks and Cinder initiates the power steal
>Newfound powers focus her and she grits her teeth
>Reaches out for her fallen sword with her semblance
>Looks up and locks eyes with Ruby, who is staring at her with a horrified expression
>Pyrrha smiles and rips her sword towards herself, tip first
>Close-up shot of her eyes as they twitch in pain
>It impales her just below her breastplate, but she refuses to look away from Ruby
>Audio goes silent
>"This isn't how it was supposed to happen," she breathes, and then her head drops
>Ruby screams and doubles over, fainting as the Maiden powers go to her
>In the mass confusion WBY grab her and escape
Pass it on, Barb.
which scene do you mean? there are so many atrocities that i honestly don't know which one you are talking about
Can someone point me towards good greek fire fics? I can´t seem to find any.
Ah, THAT one. Yes, that's probably the single most shameful and terrible scene in the whole series. Even compared to the Neptune scenes and that's got to say a lot.
