Reposting the Crosshares fic I found: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11029609/2/Chocolate-Bunnies-A-Cup-of-Nesquik-and-A-Lot-of-Crosshares
Same with that Bumblebee one.
While we're posting fic links, shameless self plug. WR Story.
It's already been done with mice on Earth and we're nowhere near close hard-light holograms or true AI.
Splicing two X-chromosomes together shouldn't be that big of a problem in Remnant.
That, anon, is pure lesbian magic.
ah yes, white rose parenting.
>Weiss obviously having read up on anything she could find about parenting, terabytes of information on her scroll
>still being totally helpless when it comes to putting anyhting she learned into practice, constantly panics without Ruby being around to help her
>meanwhile, Ruby being kinda awkward as first, but slowly becoming such a great mother that Weiss falls in love with her all over again
New thead, new discussions
what are you
>thoughts on new episodes
A Velvet x Coco fic
A Velvet x Coco smut
>thoughts on the episodes
Loving Neo, she's too adorable for a villain,can't wait to see her fight Ruby
Honestly, these new episodes are getting pretty good
It always seems as though to me that Weiss would be the better parent- being strict but responsible and quite affectionate.
That Forlorn seems pretty good after the first chapter. I'm dreading every single new chapter of Vengeance because everything is going to go to hell any moment now.
Can't write worth shit. One day I'm going to finish the BB fic I started but this will not be that day.
Hyped as fuck. Nothing new on the /u/ front as per usual but Ironwood's fight was awesome and Neo vs Ruby is hopefully going to be great. The preview should be coming out any moment now.
I just wish there where more pollination fics.
This is the only really good one I've found.
I'll check it out. Thanks for he suggestion sis.
The preview is out.
Neo vs Ruby is as hype as might be expected, Tauradonna was probably a thing
What if something goes wrong and her semblance freaks out from the attempted aura fusion, resulting in the maidens consciousness being shoved into Pyrrha's spear or shield. Them being metal and all. Pyrrha could be the invincible girl with a sassy living weapon or shield and the oblivious bumbling love interest sidekick/Beefcake Juane. Heck, that could make a monster of the week sitcom
You make a fair point but if that was the case then whatshisface wouldn't be eye candy. He'd just be the bumbling failure of sidekick.
Rubles would actually make a better sidekick, at least I think.
>babby's first ship
Cut that shit out, anon.
These threads always get super shit when the shipping wars start.
>where's the Neo x every other woman in the show art/fanfiction?
It might not be exactly what you're looking for, but a while ago I wrote up a Neo translation guide that translated her lewd, flirty hand gestures to lewd, flirty talk.
Would that perhaps amount to Neo sullying RWBY's good pure name by seducing her way through the girls of Beacon and beyond while disguised as members of RWBY?
Because I can get behind that.
No problem. The Neo is a very confusing and perverse creature, so it's nice to have some help understanding her
Fair warning, this is just as dumb as it was the first time I posted it.
>Ruby: Licks her lips hungrily and gives her a smile and a wink
Exactly what you'd think.
>Weiss: Presses her breasts together, poking and prodding at them proudly before sticking her tongue out
>Blake: Licks the back of her hand and pretends to groom herself, then beckons her with a finger
"Here, kitty kitty!"
>Yang: Slowly punches the air a few times, shaking her head, then pokes one of her fingers through an "Okay" sign made by her other hand, nodding
"Make love, not war."
>Pyrrha: Pokes her index and middle fingers through an "okay" sign on her other hand
"I know what you want."
>Nora: Shoves 4 of her fingers through an "okay" sign on her other hand, her first thumb moving in a circle below the "okay"
"I know what you need."
>Penny: Signs the number string 0-201-201-5
Penny's override code, allowing for manual reprogramming of behavior directives.
>Emerald: Nothing, she intentionally avoids communicating to her, or even looking at her.
"I'll notice you if you beg."
>Melanie and Militia: Makes a "V" with her index and middle fingers on both hands, licking the air between them, alternating often
"I know you two are inseparable, so..."
"Room for one more?"
>Glynda: Turns around and leans forward, sticking her rear out towards her
"I only respond to corporal punishment."
>Cinder: Nothing. She only responds through action when ordered.
Almost finished rereading Can You Feel My Heart
Started working on the second chapter my Fate/RWBY White Rose story
>thoughts on the new episodes
HOLY FUCK A DRAGON (seriously tho, this is getting better by the minute)
Are we not going to talk about how Blake and Adam were just confirmed to have been a thing in the past?
Or about how the age of Neo x Ruby has come at last.
I think most of the names for NeoRuby are dumb.
>Cold War AU
>Neo is a brilliant sub commander who went mute in later life
>She get's sign language fluent XO
>Young, bright-eyed etc, etc...
>They are slated for exercises to test a new sub
>This would all be fine but Neo plans to defect and hasn't gotten round to turning her one means of efficient communication with the crew
>She'll never get an opportunity like this again
>Tense situations and hard choices abound
Basically The Hunt for Red October but more gay and even more loyalty games.
Work has officially re-begun again. I'm determined this time, I swear.
But please bear with me due to currently being in the middle of a desert 7000 miles away from home.
I'm a hardcore Bumblebee shipper but if Monochrome were to become canon by some miracle I would be completely alright with it.
So I'm guessing they can't get communications out because of Cinder's virus, how pissed is Winter gonna be after she learns about the whole terrorist attack afterwards? Her sister coulda been hurt!
Also it might bring Taiyang into the picture, finally, next volume. But that's /co/ talk
Ey, would a story about Summer/Raven having Taiyang as sperm donor be something? That way there's no LESBIAN MAGIC yet remains (somewhat) true to canon.
No idea what the rest should be, perhaps mix it in with the Kindergarten-story I'd planned somehow.
god i need more fics to read, especially one about ruby hearing weiss sing for the first time and goign full gay. then wanting to sing like that herself and learning from someone to surprise weiss
Funny you should bring this up. Just the other day I had an idea for a fic about a RWBYverse version of the October Revolution. Red Ruby and all that jazz.
If it were at all true to history, it would not end happily.
Make ruby conflicted about the defection, taking over the chef's role as the saboteur?. Explain away why she didn't just tell moscow by having some flashback to an earlier point in their romance or before they broke up. Ruby is torn between her love and her duty allowing for fluff and romance to try and sway Neo from going through with it while remaining ignorant of the letter sent to the Premier. Say the officer's meeting is delayed as Neo needs to get her won over since she needs to translate.
Then Weiss can swoop in as the buckaroo alec baldwin replacement. I'm sure you can get white rose to work in there even if it's running on pure a Schnee always gets what they want.
Won't show up as often. You could make Ruby to be "married with the job/the duty/the ship
(this last option might not be to /u/'s liking, as submarines in Russia are male)" to handwave away Ramius's actual and latewife.
>political officer on board
Would actually support Neo's attempts at sabotaging the sub. Subtly at first, openly in the end. Plenty of conflict here, but not really seeing room for Neo.
Best choice in my opinion.
>Would actually support Neo's attempts at sabotaging the sub.
Umm no as in Neo manages to swap out the exercise orders for fakes as she never gets a safe opportunity to off Weiss before they open them. Weiss is still full of Red pride and loyalty to the motherland and Comrade Ironwood/Cinder/Whoever.
So you’ve read Rush, Innocence, Remnant’s Reclaimer, The Dark & The Light, Atypical, Free Runner, Layers of Ice, Feel the Burn, Mafia Blake, Spoon Equality and The Ladybug Diary?
Because if you have then I'm pretty short on shit to recommend.
Holy shit Kuma.
I really need to go watch Red October before I let my hatred of Cinders' team me, huh? Cause fuck if I know which of those is right. Also, I meant that Ruby would be a deep cover operative sent by her CO (Weiss) to assassinate the brilliant (and absurdly tiny) commander of Russia's' newest nuclear sub, and then destroy it to make sure it cannot blow up America or something. Maybe make Neo slightly sympathetic at moments, but soon enough the mute sociopath does something irredeemable in Ruby's eyes, allowing her to complete her mission with a clear heart (more or less). And it would end with Ruby and Weiss using the stress of the situation and being apart for so long to further strengthen their bond. And cuddling, lots and lots of cuddling.
Hot damn, them's some
lesbian magicbaby-carrying hips.
Whew, Kuma knows how to make some sweet sweet lewds when she wants to
I didn't know I wanted this as much as I do.
I kinda want the reaction of the other sisters now to finding out that their respective older sisters are banging. Followed by the eventual awkwardness that comes from this.
More so when Ruby and Weiss are dating at the same time.
>Ruby and Weiss walk in on Yang and Winter banging
>Confusing feelings consume them both
>Yang and Winter decide to help them through their troubled time by
giving them lessons
I still like the idea of Yang and Winter plotting to get Ruby and Weiss together.
I have literally nothing. My post is about how I didn't even think about how much fun this pairing could actually be. I imagine it would end up being as bit like that WeissxYang fic where Weiss brings Yang home for Thanksgiving dinner to purposely upset her family.
Sisters shipping sisters. Now I also want a lewd fic of the older sisters teaching by example to the younger sisters.
Oh she would totally be the top in bed, even if Yang could still probably bench her.
inb4 Yang actually has more experience with women so Winter tops like a total amateur but Yang enjoys it too much to burst her bubble
You forgot the part where after the actual surprise fades. Winter's pretty turned on that Yang can lift her.
leading to her thinking about all the new things they could try with their strength.
Ok, explain to me how that works, with one being a mute sociopath who probably jerks off on corpses, and the other being a genuinely good person who feels and incredible need to help and protect others?
Bonus points for no redemption crap, Neo is way to tainted for that
might have meant this part
>that WeissxYang fic where Weiss brings Yang home for Thanksgiving dinner to purposely upset her family.
in which case, here
>a genuinely good person who feels and incredible need to help and protect others
>mute sociopath who probably jerks off on corpses
>Neo is captured through some means (like say, the ship crashing and she and Ruby being found by student's forces before Cinder's),
>held by the students because Atlesian forces and Hunters are nowhere to be seen and too busy with the Grimm siege
>Take her and Ruby back to a temporary base they've set up in the cafeteria or something
>Everyone, especially Yang is eager to see her hang
>Ruby is more hesitant, doesn't want anyone to hurt her because that "isn't how Hunters/Huntresses should be", after Penny she doesn't want to see any more death.
>Neo, being Neo, is pretty nonchalant about the entire situation, but sees the potential to play her enemies against each other for her own amusement and potential escape.
>Neo can't answer any interrogation, but wouldn't even if she could
>Other students get increasingly furious, start debating whether they should torture her
>Yang's anger is just building and building until she loses her cool and ends up hitting Neo a couple times in the face
>Ruby disgusted by everyone's willingness to hurt other people so quickly, "no better than them", "drawing the Grimm straight to us" etc.
>Stands in Yang's path, Crescent Rose drawn
>Other students and Yang back off, return to fortifying the base and dealing with stray Grimm that wander too near
>Alone, Ruby tends to Neo's wounds, apologizing for everyone being afraid, feels terrible

>Seeing this tiny girl crying after being assaulted, Ruby's heart melts

>Naively feels that Neo isn't really a bad person, and that she could become a friend
>Neo sees she can just sink her claws into Ruby

>Smirks and is defiant in front of other students, "cries" and "depends" on Ruby when they are alone
>Ruby just keeps falling deeper for this proud little girl still fighting
>Neo carefully screws with the group, raising tensions, getting other students, Yang in particular to show their bad sides
>Ruby gets ever more alienated by how her friends have changed, takes solace in Neo as the "one person she can trust" because Neo always 'shows her real side when they're alone together'
>Gets to the point where Ruby understands she loves Neo
>Neo is slowly allowed a bit more freedom, because they need her to fight the Grimm
>Gives Ruby fighting lessons, becomes increasingly intimate with her
>Neo becomes far more important to Ruby than her former friends and teammates.
>Enemy forces splintered, everyone untrusting
>Neo's win, gained a doting, cute girlfriend who would do anything to see her smile
It's be a pretty simple dynamic. Like you said, Ruby's a good person who helps others and has an idealistic view of the world. Even if Neo was too tainted for it, Ruby might still believe she could be saved. Conversely, Neo clearly likes to play with her food and toy with foes; she could easily see Ruby's attempts to help as amusing and a good chance for a spot of fun; maybe she'd even try to turn it around and corrupt Ruby, who is of course too pure and good for that to work. You you get an unstoppable force meets the immovable objects situation, and the tension therein is where the passion is born.
Besides, you don't really choose who you fall for.
>Neo now has a wide variety of choices depending on how horrible a person she feels like being
>continue to enjoy Ruby being totally wrapped around her finger
>wait for the perfect moment and betray Ruby, killing her former friends in front of her
>wait for the perfect moment and kill Ruby in front of them, enjoying the look of horrified betrayal in Ruby's eyes.
>convince Ruby to elope, take her straight to Cinder's forces where she can imprison and slowly turn her into a obedient doll
>genuinely enjoy being around Ruby and fucking with 'good guys' more than having to work on plans and infiltration and other annoying crap--still get to tear Grimm to shreds and instigate fights with Yang where it looks like Yang is attack her and she gets to humiliate her girlfriend's sister until Ruby steps in, knowing Ruby will side with her against Yang.
Personally I prefer Neo trying to seduce Ruby as a way of tormenting Yang, initially doing it out of spite and cruelty but getting in too deep and starting to really like her.
We don't know enough about her.
She could fall anywhere on the line between sociopath who loves nothing better than fucking with people, and will happily dispose of a defenseless enemy soldier on the battlefield; to insane serial killer that gets off on cutting her victims up into little bits.
Not knowing how crazy she is makes it harder to guess what her endgame would be.
>>Not having Em continue to use her power to show Neo as Weiss and Weiss as Neo to Ruby.
>>Ruby thinks she's doing the right thing going along with Weiss which is actually Neo.
>>She attacks Neo which is actually Weiss and tries to kill her.
>>Neo is playing Weiss perfectly in acting and body language.
>>Ruby cannot tell the difference between her wife and her captor in bed and her mind is slowly getting warped on what is real and what isn't anymore as the little hints start adding up the people around her aren't who she thinks they are.
>>Rubys mind breaks from Cinder and Neo seducing her.
>>Blake, Yang, Weiss and Winter show up to find their leader has become a sex slave and is perfectly content with it.
>>They're horrifed while Winter is secretly fascinated and wants to take notes because Schnees homolusts knows no bounds.
I'm usually against the use of caps in these threads, but...
HOLY FUCKING SHIT THE NEW EPISODE
Ironwood is an awesome cyborg, we see Qrow's scythe, Weiss does a partial summon, Velvet's box is bullshit as predicted, Adam stabs Blake and cuts Yang's arm off, Torchwick gets eaten, Neo goes full Mary Poppins, Ozpin vs Cinder, bumblebee implications, I May Fall; the whole nine yards
Roman eaten by a grimm Neo thrown from the ship (but floating away on parasol) Amber killed by Cinder mid transfer Cinder gains full maiden powers and is about to fight Ozpin Adam stabs Blake in the stomach Yang charges him, he cuts off her arm Ironwood running around half robot Qrow's scythe used Velvet can trace over-edge weapons and use the owner's fighting style
Interested to see if Yang gets a prosthetic from here on out. It's either that, they cheap out and find a way to get it healed back on, or they keep her one armed. Two of those seem like cool options
As someone who fucking loves prosthetics, this makes me a very happy camper
I was a pretty constant hater during V1/2 and 3 is really doing a lot to change my mind.
Now to wait for the part where all my dreams are mercilessly crushed anyway. But can we talk about how Bumblebee took a huge step towards being canonically possible this episode? "Destroy everything you love, starting with her" was so delicio/u/s. There is absolutely no way there can not be any angsting/comfort between the two after recent events either.
Depending on how they follow through this could actually be really cool. Chances are they're going to give her a prosthetic and find a way to make it look like her natural arm so they don't have to change her model much. I think it's really going to come down to how much work they want to do with her model. Personally I would like to see her with a prosthetic and follow that up with some scenes where she doesn't have it on.
Sadly this is probably exactly what they are going to do
>"Destroy everything you love, starting with her" was so delicio/u/s.
As soon as I heard that, I knew its gonna take an angsty turn, especially about what happened to
Yangs Arm. But holy shit, it felt good knowing the bees are back
She will get a prosthetic, Mercury and Ironwood already have them. It's not a coincidence that Ironwood's was flaunted before Yang got chopped. Also, coming up with one-armed animations would be a pain in the ass
I can already see next episode
making Bumblebee canon but then Blake bleeds out and dies in Yang's arms. Thus eliminating the need for Arryn to record lines from hundreds of miles away
Don't you dare put a jinx on Weiss. She is going to find Ruby, have a really gay moment with her, and then remain safely off-screen until the post-climax closing scene of the volume
that will probably be Blake crying over Yang's mangled body in a hospital bed.
Except Pyrrha did specifically mention she'd unlock Jaune's Aura so that he'd heal. Probably anyone can do that.
Ironwood running around all cyborg proves that it is entirely possible and even the most likely that Yang gets a new arm.
Don't lose your cool, they just aren't going to kill a MAIN character in the midst of a season. Whatever was done to
Yang must be something that will be fixed later on but just add to her character complexity. Because right now, she's just all about kicking asses and not thinking a lot. Surely she'll at least become slightly angsty.
Is no one else devastated with how lame
Torchwick's 'death' was?
I thought it was rather appropriate to show how the show is moving forward. Keeping the same villians around for too long makes them stale.
He was a cool character who got his final hurrah, and it was really just his time to go, especially with all the hinting that Cinder isn't the 'big' Big Bad. Not much use for a character that is an underling to an underling. Plus it could be used as a plot point for Neo in the future.
Speaking of how the show moving forward,
I am going to be terrified for Weiss in every new episode from now on.
Don't forget about
I'm unsure if he's really dead, but after all, he was
fucking eaten by a Grimm.
And I think they needed a little bit of shock value to make sure people understand that
the foreshadowed war has started for real.
Someone caught an interesting detail:
Yang is crying when she charges Adam after seeing Blake get stabbed. Those two really do love each other.
I mean for future use silly, last summer I would not have seen this tonal shift coming.
Roman sounded kind of concerned about Neo when she flew off, do you think they were tight because she kind of seemed like Cinder's henchman? Will Neo want to murder Ruby for this, not care, fuck her or
>do you think they were tight
I hope so,
otherwise I would need to throw my headcanon about Neo being Roman's mute daughteru and doing cute illegal things with him out of the window.
Besides, she did answer to his orders. It's more likely that she's his henchman first and only answers to Cinder because of the chain of command.
So who else thinks that
Yang will get a robotic arm but Weiss won't?
Would give her an excuse to get out of that goddamn tutu and into something with a little matador cape to cover the bad arm up. Also her fighting style could go down more interesting routes if she had to make up for missing an arm.
How about they all get robotic arms? And then legs? And then bodies? And then start fingering for world pea... wait a minute.
I must be going crazy. RWBY is actually a good show now.
Okay but what if Blake takes her bow off to wrap Yang's arm and then carries her to the safe zone in the city. While Blake is carrying her and they have a long talk that ends with them confessing to one another.
Blake never wears her bow again.
Yang wears it on her robotic arm.
Well if that were to happen, aside from it being nice, Blake would have to survive. Now she totally could depending on where the jealous ex-lover stabbed her but the position seemed too centered to be anything but possibly fatal if she ended up carrying Yang that far.
>BB could be canon soon
>But then no other gay ship will ever be canon
>And there's other ships you like more
That's really bad.
>But there's other ships you like less
>And they'll have lots of time to work on it over so many series
That's really good.
I must admit I'm torn.
They confirmed she was Roman partner in crime, she worked for Cinder because Roman worked for Cinder.
If Ruby is asexual then she just needs a girlfriend with no genitals.
You make a good case, if that's true then I could see the whole long walk leads to them getting together or promise of getting together and ribbon shenanigans.
Anything to get Yang into her alt outfit.
I want so much for this to become a long-term thing. For Neo to take on the role of Ruby's arch-nemesis, Popping up now and then to attempt to kill her, flirting in combat and either chasing her off, being chased off, or the fight always being interrupted.
But I know that will never happen.
Literally anything but this.
In fact if anon is right and we have so many characters because the show needs cannon fodder, and Neptune is among the expendables, my opinion of M&K will skyrocket
I swear tog god, if these are just teases and they end up being "really cloase friends" I'm gonna drop this whole fandom, and I aint coming back
I was brave enough to leave the sub, I aint crashing again
>tfw haven't watched since episode 4
>just caught up
I'm no drawfag, but I thought I'd give it a try given the circumstances.
By and large Yang has always been placed in the position of 'the comforter' in that she is usually used as the character that helps others deal with their own issues and supports them. With the recent development it might be interesting to see the role reversal that will show up in fan works now that Yang has something she might need help dealing with.
so I checked out two of the three fics I could find that have WinterxYang and they're both pretty bad. The one is just four chapters of Weiss torture porn.
This sucks, I just want some shipper sisters goodness
Okay, got a single chapter into the third and it's bizarre OC AU land where everyone is OOC and my god everything is awful forever
I didn't expect torture porn! Give me that at least imouto.
Pretty sure there is one featuring Yang.
His death was pretty quick and pretty unceremonious but let's be honest, he got killed by a grimm in order to keep the writers from making Ruby kill him and thus escape from her 'she is still a child' prison
The fact that he died so unceremoniously is actually what makes me wonder if he'll come back. The fact that Ironwood "died" so unceremoniously last episode was how most people predicted he wasn't actually dead, after all.
If he does come back, I'd bet that it will be either as a way to demonstrate Cinder's newfound power, or as a way to add to the mystery of what Grimm even are.
You're probably spot on about how if he does come back it'll be through some unforseen power 'n' such. Didn't the grim that ate him immediately take off afterwards? He could probably cut/shoot his way out since he was swallowed whole.
>He could probably cut/shoot his way out since he was swallowed whole.
That's what I was thinking, if he gets out on his own (or with Neo's help), it will probably be after the credits of the final episode. It feels rather thematic to have the protagonists get the one small victory they've earned this season to be undone. I'm very curious to see where this goes.
>see where this goes.
For real though I hope there's some sort of bumblebee advancement. Weiss will probably get some work on her stand. The two that will need a power upgrade are Rubles and Blake, the latter of which can probably go on some super bullshit ninja training monastery while Yang's going through physical therapy.
I'm expecting some serious personality changes for next season, and a change in outfits to reflect that.
For example, Yang will cut her hair short, to show the audience shes become a lot more focused, and a lot less flamboyant. Her outfit becomes less flamboyant and more utilitarian, and it will be designed to draw focus to her
new cyborg arm. The arm will be wrapped in cloth, covered in synthetic skin, or something like that so that the audience will ask "why does she have two arms?" until it gets dramatically burned off in a fight.
Blake's new outfit will be more "vengeful" looking, and will show off her cat ears more, to show shes done with hiding who she is from others.
Weiss will dress in a more "powerful" manner, getting rid of her skirt, and wearing a cape to maintain the "flow-y" look to her outfit.
Ruby will have a more "mature" look, and if there is more than a year or two between seasons, she'll likely grow her hair out.
I support these new looks. Short hair Yang sounds delicious. I know I have that specific image somewhere of short hair Yang and Ruby's reaction to it but I can't find the damn thing anywhere
>Fight with the big bad comes up
>Her semblance goes supernova cause she felt so threatened she totally blanked the limit her arm can take
>Roboarm explodes, spraying the whole team with shrapnel
>RWBY all shredded and knocked to the ground with terminal bleeding
>Sad music comes on as Ruby's vision fades on her now dead team
Well I guess...
It'd help it they did short stories on the side showing more character interaction, world building, and feels. It'd clear up stuff like how ruby and penny are much closer than their little screen time makes it seem.
Not having to animate it would maybe make it practical to do.
Well yeah if you wanna be that grimdark but it wouldn't fit the tone of the show even with the more serious approach they're doing.
It was more a comment about her arm retaining heat like any sort of metal from sembalance usage via fighting or making furious love to Blake.
Masterfully done, it was more subtle than I was expecting but you nailed it.
It's beginning already
Gonna be a fun week as all the fanart catches up with the latest episode stuff
>bumbleby status: actually somewhat within the realm of possibility now
>white rose status: still a pipe dream
I'm happy for bb fans though. enduring a traumatic experience together is primo shipping fuel.
WR probably wouldn't be a pipe dream if they didn't treat her like she was 7. That's probably never happening though so yeah maybe a little bit. At least you're safe from possible het shenanigans since her family will probably get heavily involved in the war making her focus too much on that for any romance.
Maybe we'll get some filler showing weiss comforting her while she's freaking out over yang getting badly injured and being in the ICU after the crisis is handled in the finale and everyone has time to realize stuff.
Maybe even post-nightmare cuddles ending with an I'm better now but I really like sleeping with you so please stay or along those lines.
WR fluff & confession arc for season 4 when?
When Weiss gets impaled to protect Rubles and she isn't she if she'll live.
Well I spent five minutes trying to find any trace of yang's arm being left behind when it shows adam or being carried off by blake and it it doesn't look like either so maybe we'll still get a bandaged up yang at the hospital patting ruby on the head with her severed arm telling her she's fine and there's no need to get all yang-xious. RIP
What if Weiss will be the loneliest of all at the end of the war as the last surviving member of RWBY. But still the strongest team as she fights with the summoned specters of her friends she mercy killed
Mirror, tell me something, tell me who's the loneliest of all? (2x)
Fear of whats inside of me; tell me can a heart be turned to stone?
Mirror, mirror, whats behind you? save me from the things i see.
I can keep it from the world, why won't you let me hide from me?
Mirror, mirror, tell me something-- who's the loneliest of all?
I'm the loneliest of all
Jesus christ, that is a great endgame if the show was bleaker.
Maybe she'll end up as the last of her line or something so it could fit that way.
Well we can safely presume shit's gonna go turbo downhill. Cinder will test her strength and probably exhaust herself against ozpin leading her to flee when the rest of the GAang, I mean qrow, ironwood, glynda arrive. Ozpin's group, along with the shade and the harvest headmaster apparently know about the maidens and are on some level keeping tabs/protecting/shooing people who want to get their power away. Cinder, now on the run has seen the power of a maiden fail twice and may be tempted to try and snibbedy snab another maidens power. So she gets to work on making a new glove and finds out that while it'd be too hard to get the summer and spring maiden, the winter maiden was succeeded a decade or so ago and there's no record of who or where. She chooses this as her target.
Plot happens and rwby, jnpr, some paladins and droids maybe lead by glynda are one of multiple teams sent out to race against the clock to locate and secure the other maidens hidden in remnant and obstruct cinder where possible. glynda's group of course is sent after the winter maiden
More filler and plot happens blah blah blah. We catch up with them in Atlas making a raid on a safehouse they think cinder is in. turns out they caught her with her skirt down as her and her gang were recovering from an assault on a heavily fortified SDC research facility. Glynda and the gang fail to capture Cinder and her group as they make a run to and escape on a nearby bullhead but Weiss is shown getting up from a work table tucking something into her not-cleavage while facing away from anyone else in the background as the episode ends
red herrings, lore, flashbacks go down as the gang and cinder play where in remnant is the winter maiden. Cinder connects the dots by finding out the previous winter maiden died from revenge for her killing the previous and disguising it as an illness or whatever. Something tips somebody off and ozpin connects the dots. Glynda gets a frantic garbled message from Ozpin and all they can make out is schnee mansion and attack.
Cut to them following a trail of dead guards and entering winters bedroom just as stealth cinder runs winter through with her sword. Only for the power of the winter maiden to rush out to Weiss. Cue season finale boss fight that ends in a stalemate with cinder being hauled off by mercury while Neo and Emerald cover their escape with hallucination fuckery.
Weiss rallies the nerds and there's a big chase. Captures. Escapes. hostages. Ruby snuggles. Nightmares and insecurites as she adjusts to becoming a maiden she never asked become, and nobody really to mentor her on something of this scale as she accidentally freezes buildings when getting snarky or blows up a tree as she
Eventually after much plot, shenanigans, reveals, plot twist that all along cinder's been trying to stop some primordial grimm from awakening, or kill it cause eventually it'll break free/wake up or whatever and she just went all cuhrazee you all aren't doing what's gonna be done so I'll get it done murderhoboing be damned, Spring maiden is killed and absorbed by cinder, the summer maiden was killed by cinder in a big attack via the white fang and her gang. Bizzarely, the power just fades away. Everybody is confused and cinder is scared.
More plot, filler, shenanigans, eventually cinder is run down, exhausted from nigh-constant attacks despite her overwhelming strength. Her team dead or captured. Cinder gets beaten by the team until her aura fails. When they go to arrest her, weiss conjures a storm to blow everyone away from her and cinder while freezing cinder to the ground and making a dome of ice for cover. We finally see what happened as weiss pulls a white glove from her chest and steals the power of the fall and spring maiden.
New season up. Rumblin' in the atlas capital, nobody knows, errybody scurred, grimmocalpyse all ova'. Big mega grimm comes out from under the big sdc building, revealing it's built over some tapped out mine, and does a king kong or whatever. Local forces get splattered until weiss shoes up with the accumulated and heavily unstable powers of 3 maidens. Bonks it in the nose all the way back down through tapped out dust mine tunnels down down to grimm town until they hit some subterranean temple whatsit absolutely loaded with dust. Mumbo jumbo happens and the mega grimm is rendered dormant, for now, but Weiss has to stay close. With the power of one maiden dissipated the mega-grimm can no longer be sealed indefinitely. SDC tower thing is rebuilt as a megafortress to stand watch with Weiss at its summit trapped to her duty as a gatekeeper as the last female of her bloodline..
Alternatively, Weiss goes power overload coma and the powers go to ruby, blake, and yang or one by one they were fatally wounded in the war to stop cinder then the mega grimm leading to being mercy killed by weiss for the bad end.
Thoughts? It kinda fell apart halfway and it wasn't exactly strong to begin with. Be a hell of a gut punch to the feels for the final episode with Weiss standing atop the rubble with the summoned specters of her deceased team around her, victorious but not unscarred as gentle music plays, the screen begins to fade and credits roll
Weiss has no need for Maiden powers, her rampant gayness is the only source of overwhelming power she needs.
If they magic her arm back on I would honestly breathe a sigh of relief. Looks like I'm in the minority here but I've never been a fan of dismemberment, especially for established characters.
Plus keeping the arm off would make it feel like all canon-based art/fics that go even a little bit into the future are now obsolete.
Magic-ing the arm back on, while visually would probably be the best option, wouldn't nearly deliver the lesson as well. To the audience, compared to her getting a prosthetic and having relearn how to use it. If they were going to be real lazy I could see them saying she has a 'skin' for her arm to help hide it better.
Has the series even had some filler episodes? I'd totally be down for the maiden voyage of the SS Bumblebee and White rose as yang's the one needing comfort and ruby's partially reliving the trauma of losing summer. I'd totally be down for that in the break between seasons
the entirety of Volumes 1 and 2.
This is dumb. Ruby was never going to kill him, not because she's a child, but because she is not the sort of person who kills people.
Roman's death was great. It was out of nowhere and highlighted the fact that even though he chose the winning side, the Grimm are the ultimate evil in the world.
>Didn't the grim that ate him immediately take off afterwards? He could probably cut/shoot his way out since he was swallowed whole.
the Grimm he was eaten by charges Ruby and Ruby dodges over it, kicking it into the ship, where it slams through the armor and gets caught in the explosion inside of the ship (which then crashes into even more explosions).
Was never really much of a ship. The vast majority of people who liked seeming them together liked the father(guardian)/daughter or platonic partners in crime aspect of it.
Neo is too busy with her other playthings anyway.
Neo doesn't want to keep broken toys, nee-san.
Yang didn't really defend Blake since she was already stabbed at the end of her fight. Which she lost.
seriously, the last few shots she fired could've been less obvious from the get go
Honestly, if the finale ends better (quality wise) than v2's finale did, I'll be happy with that. All I'm hoping for at this point is for the episode to not feel as rushed as Breach did.
I'd also be happy with Neptune dying, but that one seems a little too much to hope for.
Can't keep a badman down. He's so gonna shoot his way out
Got whacked into the ship's bridge which exploded then the ship went down from secondary explosions and crashed, exploding more. Good news is being inside the grimm probably shielded him from the bridge explosion. From there, who knows. Maybe the body didn't dissipate fast enough and shielded him from the later explosions. Maybe he found escape parachutes/pods or whatever. Even if he just climbs out of the dissipating grimm corpse and stands in the blown out bridge as it crashes and explodes more, he has pretty much all of his aura and he's at the top of the ship so there's much less issue with getting crushed.
Flares his aura and jumps off onto one of the nearby buildings, rolling as he lands, as the ship is going down? He'll probably break both legs and lose a kidney or something but he might live.
>lose a kidney
Ha, would that be from shrapnel or his internal organ gettings crushed from the impact?
There's a reason why the anon said they could be portrayed as the same thing, not that they are. Besides, she can't be much of an effective defender if threats keep coming back. Grimm being the exception since it's an actual species.
Plis nn o bully the slushy man. He'll get recovered and his lower half amputated. They don't have time or parts to get him a cyborg body so they just plug him into a paladin they jerry rigged to work after some repairs
Sisters, I'm honestly anxious after what happened to Yang. I'm taking deep breaths, I know it's just a cartoon -- but I'm legitimately down about the results of Adam's beatdown.
So, good job to Rooster Teeth for getting me emotionally invested, I guess.
If this Bumblebee teasing doesn't go anywhere, it will be a sad offseason.
But if it does go somewhere, gotta find plenty of fan-art where Yang's right hand isn't visible.
I don't really do shipping wars -- but I've noticed hints of Bumblebee, I think it would make sense, and I would enjoy it.
I was thinking due to poses or cropping, but suggestion noted!
Hmm, save flipped version as PNG or keep as JPG. Hmm.
Oh, is this thread not being bumped anymore? Sorry, I need to pay more attention.
Thanks for the heads-up, then. I guess I'll save my no-right-hand-Yang stuff for the next thread...?
...Should we just start it now?
Man it's going to be a so fun seeing lengths people will go to give her a normal looking arm to make any version of older Yang.
