>What is RWBY?
It's a show produced by Roosterteeth, created and animated by Monty Oum of Haloid and Dead Fantasy.
>Is it good?
Not really. The animation and pacing are terrible, but everything else is fun if not tolerable. And it's getting better.
>Why do these threads still exist then
Enough people like it for their own reasons despite the aforementioned "Not being good"
Rules of /RWBY/
>1. Love RWBY, Hate RWBY, just don't try to tell us it's good.
>2. If it's a good idea, they probably won't write it.
>2a. Unless they steal it. We wish.
>3. Don't believe his lies.
Pastebin of all our shit, Check it out sometime, we got most of our fics in there.
Server version 1.7.10
We have a Steam Group!
You're also right, but a bit slow.
You're all right all right.
>Prepare for your utter defeat!
>At least try to impress me.
>If this is really what you want...
>Alright! Let's kick this off with a Yang!
>Hey, do we really need to do this? Right now?
>Let us commence the battle!
>I HOPE YOU'RE READY FOR THIS!!
>Nora breaking the legs of those who do not deserve it
She gets against Cardin, and he delivers his line, and Nora's response is just an overly long, completely mad cackle.
If Cardin loses you hear him groaning in pain from the defeat, a snapping sound and then him screaming.
Roman: (character depending intro)
if vs Ruby, "Why hello Red! Isn't it past your bedtime?"
If vs Weiss, "Why hello there Ice Queen"
Vs Sun, "You are not the brightest banana in the bunch, are ya kid?"
When he wins he says something relating tot he character if he has met them, if not then he says, "These kids just keep getting weirder."
>Ruby Vs. Blake
>"I'll finish what I started.."
>Weiss checks to make sure Roman is knocked out
>....Looks like I put your plans on ice.
>Always a pleasure.
I'll put it on my shit to do list, thanks.
>HEY, IT'S YOU!
>That's the girl who punched out my mech!
>You mean punched YOU out of it!
Why'd you click me?
Are we doing this again?
>when the match starts
>if she has a winning streak agaisnt the other player
>will say other quotes to different characters
I just wanted to play DDR
People are just joking around with fake quotes for a fake game, does it matter where they came from?
Yeah but the Pyrrhafags consistently are the worst posters here. Seriously, monitor them, you'll see I'm right. Except Somnius, Som is decent.
He's mentioned it before, he's salty about HF because of Pyrrha being in a coma or some shit. It's not like it won't be explained soon anyways, Kuma's already said everything will be explained, including Pyrrha and Blake.
The reason I don't like it is that it gets posted and talked about constantly solely because it has a decent artist backing it. It's not any better or worse than any other fanfiction (though I dislike it more because of the AU aspect, that's a personal preference thing).
>R: Well well well! It's Blondie! You know I have a close personal friend that sure you'd love to crash and burn with.
>Y: We'll see. First I've gotta smash you into the ground.
>R: Temper, temper.
>And 'that' is how it's done! Hopefully you'll have learned something for next time.
>This wasn't even half of what you'll get if you mess with my sister again.
>Good artist, bad ideas.
Ideas you don't like because they affect your waifu aren't bad ideas, jackass.
It gets talked about because it's fun, decent, and has enough to it to discuss. There's plenty of smaller AUs as well. And not liking AUs is fine but there's no reason to consistently shit on something because you're salty about it.
I mentioned once I can remember that her handling of Pyrrha is dumb. It's not the reason I don't like the story, and I don't have a waifu.
Probably all of them.
It's why she's so tsundere.
Maybe. But it doesn't matter because her girlfriend still loves her.
She's not DFC. And she doesn't seem the type to be concerned about it.
I mean, people find her attractive anyway.
Quite possibly. That would explain the heels.
Again, quite possibly.
Probably just her height and scar.
Because she's 15 years old and wielding a scythe?
You're right. I shouldn't question perfection.
Bit of a tangential topic but I think the problem with a lot of AU works is that they're more or less a quick question without any depth or exploration into the idea.
"What if Weiss worked at a fast food place?" "What if Yang was a football player?" "What if they all went to college?" "What if they were maids?" Stuff like that can be fun and cute, but it's hardly ever going to make for anything over than a momentary novelty.
But Henceforward is different, because it tries to replicate a whole possible future with these character, and does a decent job. Just my opinion. Anyways, dropping this before it turns into a shitstorm again.
I wonder if the gang has ever asked about the Scar, or if they just don't talk about it.
Granted it could be touchy.
Also maybe Winter will be Weiss' twin with the major distinction being Winter is taller and Weiss wears heels to match her.
I don't think they'd give us two sets of twins, personally. I would like to see Winter though, if only to get a glimpse into Weiss's homelife. Also, I feel like they haven't discussed the scar yet. Probably saving that for more Weiss backstory in the show.
>Not "Neo it's your cousin, why don't you take me bowling?"
You wanna know... how I got this scar?
Heiress or no, it doesn't mean she's totally safe all the time. However it did happen, it's something that they probably don't think of as unusual. Especially since she's a huntress in training like the rest of them.
Wasn't about distance, but that there was no physical boundary to stop her.
>My father was... a drinker
>Mostly because of the White Fang raids and assassination attempts
>He always had to blow off some steam from time to time...
>Wasn't always bad, a slap here, a punch there, the occasional strangulation...
>But then, one day... my mom was gone...
>Daddy wasn't too happy... Not. One. Bit.
alright, headcanon established:
>Dante is Ruby and Yang's dad.
>Yang is from Trish, Ruby is from Lady.
>He is still stuck in hell after DMC2
>Vergil survived DMC1, and accepted himself as both human and demon.
>He went and found Nevan, and they got together.
>Eventually Nevan died and gave Vergil her soul as a weapon.
>He only ever uses the scythe part as he isn't really a "cuhrayzee" guy like his brother.
>Reverse engineers Nevan's rotating and and contracting blade.
>Uses it to create similar weapons with dust.
>Knowing he couldn't love any demon as much as her, and that he won't ever find a human that could love him.
>Takes on a new identity.
>Makes sure his brother's kids always have what they need
>later finds Ifrit, gives it the same treatment as Nevan.
Crescent Rose is based on Nevan
Ember Celica is based on Ifrit
I figured maybe he was just really shouty.
I think you're right, but that doesn't explain Blake's heels.
>My father was complete mess after what happened to my mother. Always locking himself inside his office.
>It was heartbreaking to see him so down. I would've tried to cheer him up but I was afraid of him lashing out more than usual.
>But enough was enough, I would try to cheer him up no matter what would happen to me.
>As I walked up to his office door, I heard a faint sound of a woman's panting alongside my fathers
>I grew curious as to what was happening in there, so I opened the door just slightly to peek inside the room without anyone inside knowing my presence
Tuckson was a random character killed off screen.
We're talking about child abuse here. I honestly doubt we're even going to see the decapitation of another humanoid character despite the main character having a fucking scythe.
You can have 1 and only 1 character from RVB have a cameo in RWBY.
Who is it and why?
I love her shoes by the way.
Was killed offscreen and never referred to as having been killed directly. He was always "taken care of" or "dealt with".
Besides, villains killing is okay because they're villains and everyone knows that at some point they'll be redeemed or be punished. Child abuse isn't okay, especially if the abuser is still at large and RUNS A COMPANY THAT ONE OF THE MCs IS AN HEIRESS TO.
Maybe if the writers grow a pair and realise that teens and 20-something's are their main audience, then they can explore more serious issues like child abuse, racism, terrorism, etc.
I just posted right here that I love her shoes but damn. I never really looked at them before but they're really nice.
What other costume details have I been missing out on?
Okay, yes. Those are also a thing.
This has become a most wonderful day.
i don't have one, but if i did, it definitely would be pyrrha
The only thing I don't like about her outfit is that scarf thing.
I'm not a fan of that orange bit coming from her hair.
>I am the bone of my gun
>Steel is my body and cosmoline is my blood
>I have made over a thousand headshots

>And yet this purse will never hold all of my bullets.
>So, as I pray
>Unlimited Bullet Works
I don't mind it, though I'm just now realizing she has terrible-necklace-syndrome just like Neo.
They really like to overdesign.
Why not both?
Chocolate Bunny is my favorite ship.
>mfw this thread is becoming overrun by Faunus scum
Jormungand has such a good soundtrack.
That song is called "Time To Attack", btw.
I love that comic.
How can you say "no" to her?
>Coco has a natural [insert here] accent that is noticeable, yet not so thick you can't understand her
>Velvet puts on the aviators and affects a ridiculously over the top parody of said accent through her own fairly heavy Aussie drawl
Because we can.
You've obviously read the OP, you should know
There's JNPR ones, too.
Divines bless your kind heart.
>Implying he has a choice
been playing grim eclipse, when do i get other characters? on wave 6 as of now.
It's only a matter of time before Ruby unleashes her pent up urges
for human flesh
If you're playing the demo, you don't. If you're from the future and playing the full version, why the fuck are you playing wave mode? You get characters from story mode.
As long as she chooses the right targets.
Maybe it's because I've been playing through Vesperia a lot lately, but I still think a Tales-style game would be perfect for RWBY.
sheit, i'm more retarded than i thought
Dammit, forgot the pic
Saul good. He had all these plans to finish it out and just sort of threw it up on YouTube and left it alone.
ok, Back from New Jersey and still slightly hungover.
What's going on?
>Wanting to go to /v/
Having an off day, Coffee?
>mfw Geoff said if he had to live anywhere else other than New Orleans or Austin it would be Chicago
Geoff has best taste
oh hey Bear Bro. How was the celebrating after the win yesterday?
did you find moot?
>All this shit Bears taste
No wonder I've always thought moot was a faggot.
I'm 95% sure if the Bears do win the super bowl shuffle will be playing on every board
Serving the Queen in Destiny.
So with the mech fight, what do you think of RWBY's team moves? I thought they were rather lackluster. I mean Ladybug and Checkmate were just two fighters attacking a target, Ladybug looked cool but hardly did anything until the last attack, that didn't need the earlier swipes. Iceflower, Freezerburn was just Weiss combining her glyphs with other's abilities. BumbleBee was just Blake swinging Yang around to build momentum, which was cool but Blake didn't really do much. It feels like Weiss and Yang are carrying the team and no doubt Ruby will be the star in many more fights just like the Nevermore.
What does anyone else think of it?
I just got my Xbox controller back from when my brother needed it 3 days ago for his barbaric friends. It was covered in some sort of disgusting mix of sweat, grease, and probably cheetos or something.
On the upside I finally got Bayonetta.
To be fair, fighting an enemy that big with huge amounts of armor and firepower limits what you can do against them. If we ever just get to see the girls cur loose against a huge horde of Grimm or something, we'll probably see a lot more interesting attacks.
I was crazy disappointed Ruby and Yang didn't get one. On the list of shit I really want to see happen in RWBY, I want Weiss and Blake to job to some villain so Ruby and Yang can promptly deliver a ridiculous sister beat-down.
Why do Ruby and Yang have different last names
Okay, that's a good one.

Blake a second best.
bumblebee is acceptable
Just watched the podcast from last night. Dat story about Based Clayton
When it is never acceptable?
Only the finest:
slow day, huh. have some best girl for your viewing pleasure
Why is bumblebee so good?
Two hot chicks doing hot things.
>Bumblebee will never be canon ;_;
Still mad over Whiterose, Anon?
I don't know who these two girls are, but godspeed to them wherever they go.
That's a weird looking Ruby.
why is she so purrfect?
She doesn't hold a candle to best faunus.
>Labeling his sneakers
Still gets me every time
Yeah Velvet seems pretty cute and cuddly
Woah guys you must of messed up and posted
thirdbest faunus instead of best faunus.
Don't worry happens to all of us.
I like it because while they're different, both seem to really appreciate the differences they have. To me it looks like Blake enjoys that Yang is boisterous and exuberant, she smiles at her jokes and gets caught up in her excitement sometimes. While Yang likes Blake's passion and determination.
We don't see a lot of them, but what we do is of them getting along very well, and it's easy to extrapolate how they'd do with more time, and it's equally good.
It also helps that, personally, I really love that Yang gets to be so outgoing, while Blake is more introverted, without it seeming like Blake is bitter or upset at Yang for being who she is. That kind of dynamic always upset me in other fiction.
He's not even the original monkey trouble.
They do know how dangerous it is to talk to Kathleen at this point, right? She's off the reservation and she's got a bone to pick with Barb
maybe. It should be interesting at the very least.
Not dangerous at all? She has an interest in keeping her public reputation from turning ugly. Nobody would want to work with her if the first thing she does out of a business relationship is talk shit.
I want to
hugVelvet after she finishes crying over the bullies being mean to her, and then I'll grab her and tell her I'll teach her how to defend herself, causing her to elicit soft mumbles about how she values me as a friend, and to finish it off, she'll kiss me on the cheek and take me up on your offer.
I hope she starts jabbing subtly at the show, dropping little hints that the production is fucked and that they have no idea what they're doing while Agent Washingpin looks on, afraid and bald.
>what they did to her
They didn't do anything. She just can't stand not being in the spotlight and quit.
Yeah, Kathleen was a total bitch from what I hear. Trying to tell Barb to act more like a traditional woman and stay in the background and not make dirty jokes. She was probably just butthurt when Burnie came down on Barb's side.
