A somewhat sorted fic list http://pastebin.com/NyBwmzVf
Not like it'll really change anything, really. Neptune being a thing didn't stop WR in the first place, same way Sun didn't kill BY.
>Anyone hiding their feelings isn't worth it
So it's not that Ruby and Weiss aren't together because they're not meant to be, it's because Ruby doesn't understand tsunderes yet.
I'm sure there are lots of "feelings" Weiss could help Rubles understand.
Personally, I'm glad that Ruby won't be involved in any romance bullshit in canon.
>>Can't wait for Vol 3 and the game to come out.
>>Can't wait to play as Yang and make constant puns.
>>Yang: "Hey Weiss wanna hear a joke?"
>>Ruby: "SIS-- DON--"
>>Weiss: "I guess."

Well sisters, new episode this Sat/Sun. Here's to it being not complete shit and hopefully starting everything off
with a Yangon an at least mildly average note. I'm gonna be gone without internet for the week starting tomorrow and just hope I don't come back to a Neptune-related shitstorm. Please RT.
All we can do is hope.
I think I might actually cry if they manage to fuck up that badly.
Roosterteeth.com won't let me play videos on my tablet, so I'll probably have to wait until it goes on Youtube.
Don't worry sister, /co/ has people that can get the episode the same time as the sponsors, so I'll post the link we get it. It's an actual link, not RT itself, so hopefully you'll be able to watch
Aw, thanks for sharing this possible train wreck with the rest of us, Sis!
yeah but for me i also like Nuts and Bolt though more in the friendship kind of way. i don't follow the show anymore but i still love the girls mainly because of the awesome femslash fandom's content while keeping the main lovable character traits intact.
tempted to watch s3 though i'll probably wait for more fan reactions/information about the story when it has aired for a while. s2 has completely made me lose all respect and trust for RT.
that does give me a bit of hope even i'm one of the unpopular few who doesn't really feel attached to Bumblebee.
It's a bit of a bummer to see Lindsay say that, but don't read too much into it. Don't forget that Weiss' VA wants her to be paired with Jaune, and we all know that's got a snowball's chance in hell of happening.
My only real expectation is that the fanbase will continue to create good yuri.
I understand their 'innocence' angle they're playing Ruby at. Despite being 15 she's the sort of kid archetype that just doesn't get written with romance in mind.
I could see them giving her romantic life some thought when she's older, if the show lasts long enough for the girls to get a few more years under their belt.
Addendum: "thought" means the writers will start thinking about how Weiss will go about unleashing three years of sexual frustration on her finally-legal partner.
Unless the age of consent is 16 or 17, which it should be, considering the high rate of death in the confines of the universe
Then she'd only have to wait 1-2 years...
>Don't forget that Weiss' VA wants her to be paired with Jaune
I'm always so legitimately surprised when people confess to likeing that one. Out of the possible choices of ship in this fandom, that's the one for you, ehh actors.
Our Homoqueen can wait that long for that sweet sweet Rubles.
All the built up sexual tension will make their first
hand holdingall the more satisfying.
Don't worry too much about Lisndey and Kara. They're indifferent to the fandom 90% of the time anyways. The fun VA's are Barb and Arryn, even if they are teasing, they acknowledge our exsiatnce.
Go big or go home, sis.
If RT had any
semblanceof a brain left, they'd allow full creative freedom for the manga, allowing for a better plot line, more character development, well designed action and dialogue, and of course, the allowance of yuri ships. sisters, we may be able to leave our submarines soon
Maybe not 16-17 for citizens, but yeah Hunters/Huntress' (even in training) should have lower ages of consent. Risking their lives for humanity, hell yeah they should get to live a little.
Died a little inside. How is this a thing?!
I'm honestly expecting it to be the show in manga form: same sad plot, same shitty developments, relatively better-looking art. M&K wouldn't dare let anything better than their own ideas be published officially.
which is why I would pay to see various RT cast, including Miles, Kerry, and the VAs live reaction to Henceforward
I think at least one of them do read Henceforward though, since they do follow Kuma's blog. She's kind of the biggest content producer in the fandom anyways, and her presence in the fandom is quite large as well.
I would not say I'm totally ok with Henceforward plot line, but it has many awesome moments and it pushes WR so it's still much superior to the show itself to me.
Speaking of Kuma and paying to see things, her commission page is back up. Do you know what that means?
Ruby in a suit!
I'm willing to pay for it, but what do you guys want to see?
I do want it, but it seems like she has increased her commission price by quite a large margin.
God damn, why does this trailer give so much more hype than the previous one? This one actually made me excited!
>“Season 20 is happening,” adds Jones.”Noworries.”
Eh, /u/ thinks it'll last till season 4 apparently. I give it till 6 or 7 if it doesn't go downhill from here
or unless Iceberg becomes canon.
nah, looks kinda different
more gothic lolita
If the sisters want other stuff, I'm all for it, but Rubles in a suit is life.
We need more of it. Preferably with Ruby and Weiss at a formal event, and Ruby is trying to dance, but keeps screwing up and apologizing, with Weiss scolding her gently, and loving every minute of it.
How about Summer in a Suit with Winter and/or Raven off to the side looking at her with longing glances.
Or I suppose Raven/Winter since drawing Summer without her cloak is probably a stretch.
So, are we getting Episodes 1 AND 2 this weekend, then not getting Episode 3 till two weeks later?
if Neo has a big role in Volume 3, I'll cream my panties. I didn't realize that green-eyed, raven-haired gal was probably her.
WhiteRose is deliciously tsundere. Nuts-and-Dolts is innocuously endearing.
Linsday and Barb? Nah, Barb and Arryn strike me as the bisexuals.
I doubt /u/ comes up on their radar much, but if anyone were then it would be Social Media Director Dunkelman.
Getting the sense of Dejavu again
Anyways, Barb and Arryn probably don't lurk /u/, but they like the yuri ships, and that's all they need to be sisters around here.
Besides, we all know
Karais the one who stashed all the WR art away for no one to ever find, only to be caught by Barb one day, and Barb shows her stash of BB art.
Late to the party here, just saw the Volume 3 opening.
>Qrow was on a team with Summer, his sister
>Winter was very close/in love with Summer
>they were both devastated when Summer died in a botched huntress job or something and each blames the other for not being there to protect her
>now Qrow and Winter have this deep-seated feud between them
guys what if the skater girl is a red herring and Winter is the real lesbian
>>Winter was very close/in love with Summer
FUCKING YES! Mayxdecember has actual backstory that's a legitimate plot point. Oh god, this is great. I'm so happy that Winter was older.
Qrow's sister was Raven cause they're in the same family get it :^)
I'm sorry oneesan. Have a cute.
For what it's worth though I wouldn't invest too much in any ships related to Summer because, y'know, she's dead.
If only I liked WR more than just as a background pairing. While yes any sort of further romance kind runs into the wall known as death. Any sort of evidence about Winter and Summer knowing each other opens up the door known as backstory, and possibly delicious angst about Winter seeing Summer in Rubles
who she may or may not view as her child depends on the level of the relationship Summer and Winter had.
>Not knowing/interacting in the show defeats relationships
>What is crackshipping
>Giving a shit about what's canon anymore
We're all just dreaming. The rampant lesbianism is mostly just a dream except for Weiss being the incredibly gay and awful at hiding it, that's absolutely canon.Let us keep sleeping.
I'm going to bed. I hope I see a link for non-sponsors when I get up. Hyyyype.
This is normally where I'd write a short blurb about a Bloodborne inspired RWBY AU, but I haven't played Bloodborne, so consider yourself lucky.
Why thank you.
Despite the fact that I have played bloodborne, I'm not sure how I well I'd do outside of saying Rubles would be Gehrman's alt and Qrow would be father Gascoigne.
This is why I love tumblr
I'll send it tomorrow around this time, any specifics /u/ want to see?
To be clear, this will be suit!Ruby and Weiss in a dress. Pictures help.
RT Sponsor server is down.
Guess I'm waiting on /co/'s link.
Well, sister... here you go.
Use it on your phone or windows edge. Be by later, hopefully with a normal link
That...went better than I expected.
Disappointed Ruby won't be in the final round seriously, does anyone remember that she's supposed to be the main character?, but Yang and Weiss are RWBY's best options.
Still, better keep low expectations, cause when JNPR wins their fight, their gonna send out Jaune and Pyrrha (though Pyrrha and Nora would be the best option).
SSSN hasn't shown up yet, so keeping my hopes low
We're 2 seasons in, and Ruby doesn't make any progress as a Huntress and is still not the center focus?
Christ RT. get it together.
At least SSSN isn't around.
They are also the causes of most of this shit storms in the fandom such as
>"Iceberg is a legit ship!"
I usually have other people go onto tumblr for yuri art to avoid any interaction with them.
Thanks so much for the link, sis. Worked fine on my tablet, except it crashed during the credits. Looking forward to seeing it on my monitor.
So we're just getting one episode this weekend? Or was that considered a double-episode?
Best girl is still best girl!
> SSSN isn't around.
Yet. This season will be ruined by them in one way or another, I guarantee it.
I would honestly think people outside of RT liking/supporting Iceberg was a myth had I not read fanfics with them as a side ship before
They're mostly action fics. The stories aren't bad, nice action, little focus on romance, but no taste in ships
jesus, RT, just give him his own spin-off show already, don't even name it 'JNPR', name it 'Jaune' so we can get back to watching our girls kick ass
and be gay as all hell.
I don't get why Weiss and Yang are moving forward considering they don't have good synergy and I would argue Weiss seems the weakest combat wise and feels more of a support role for the team, hopefully something happens either Weiss or Yang get switched out for at least Ruby or our "apparent" MC Blake
Yang, even without her semblance, is probably the only tank in team RWBY, as well as being the heaviest hitter. Weiss, though probably the weakest in taking hits and dealing them, is the most diverse fighter thanks to her glyphs and mastery over dust and elements. Her fight in this episode alone has shown how much her abilities have grown since the Nevermore fight in V1, showing a serious growth in gravitational elements alone.
>Ruby won't be in the final round
Expected and typical.
It would be an ok thing to do if Ruby actually did stuff pertaining to the main "plot" and the tournament gets sidelined in favor of her exploits, but this is M&K and M&K can't write to save their lives.
Ruby's non-favoritism is so deeply rooted into the story now, they'll never find a way to fix it, if they even give a shit.
They're trying to make it look like Ruby will face off with Cynder this season, the current big bad, no doubt due to the fact that tophat guy (can't remember his name) had more rivalry with Blake than Ruby the previous seasons. But instead of making Cynder be an independent antagonist working her own, much more grandiose angle, lo and behold, she's just a lackey to Adam, who, surprise, is once again a personal antagonist to Blake.
Seriously, Fuck You "writers". I can seriously imagine them patting their backs at how original they think this shit is.
Stop patting your backs you fuckers.
>Rubbles won't be in the final round.
Fucking dropped. Seriously RT? How many volumes until we get to focus on the MAIN character of the show? At this point they should just stop pretending that she's the main character and just rename the show to something else. Let's see how many useless "supporting characters" get to steal screen time from RWBY on this volume.
Agreed. I'll just wait till a few dedicated sisters here watch it all and spoil it for me.
What the fuck, RT? Pull up your panties and focus on fucking RWBY. Not pointless filler, not new characters, just RWBY. They are what we came to this show in the first place.
Stop giving yourself credit for a job well done you egotistical fucks, I am completely unsatisfied with this episode, and when your 3 seasons in, and you haven't learned a goddamn thing, that's when people drop the show.
Back to the submarines, sisters. It'll be safe there.
We don't know she won't be in the final round -- there could be a personnel change. Or maybe the plot will require its most important character not to be the one competing in the final, like the previous onee-san said.
I don't deny the frustration with deuteragonists (JAUNE) getting too much screen-time. It would suck to lose sisters from the threads because it's perceived that the issue isn't being corrected quickly enough.
...In other news, Episode 2 next weekend and then nothing the weekend after: http://roosterteeth.com/post/51181901
>It would suck to lose sisters from the threads because it's perceived that the issue isn't being corrected quickly enough.
He had like one line this episode, people are just bitching for the sake of bitching at this point.
My hopes aren't too high, but I'm not giving up this early.
I'll give them till episode three.
We're getting some sort of LGBTQ+ character this season (hopefully more than one)
I'm hoping Winter is coming
out. But Baked Alaska is my trash-ship.
Ruby not being in the finals was good writing, honestly. I was pleasantly surprised by it.
NW gets it. >>1898235
Ruby is absolutely the least capable fighter on the entire team.
Yang is significantly stronger, more experienced, generally better in combat and has a semblance well suited to matches like these.
Weiss is a similar damage output, more experienced, a better fighter, more tactical and has extremely strong magic allowing her to turn any given situation to her favor.
Blake is less strong in terms of outright damage, but is much, much more experienced than any of the others, is a very skilled fighter, and has a powerful 1v1 semblance.
Compare that to Ruby, who has less experience than everyone else, is not a very hard hitter, has a semblance of moderate usefulness within the confines of the small ring and unpredictable terrain, and has a fighting style more suited to fighting large amounts of weak enemies than a couple skilled, strong opponents.
They made the logical choice. The second I heard the doubles thing, I was really hoping RT wouldn't choose WR for it.
The best choice imo would have been Yang and Blake, not because I ship that, I can't stand the ship, but because they are the two with the most actual combat experience and the two whose skill sets are most suited for combat in a 2v2 or 1v1 situation against a strong opponent.
Soneone actually pointed out a while back that Blake is more or less the stealth protagonist of the show. She has more involvement in the plot and has more stake in the outcome of whatever goes down. Ruby is pretty much the Vaan of RWBY.
>Soneone actually pointed out a while back that Blake is more or less the stealth protagonist of the show. She has more involvement in the plot and has more stake in the outcome of whatever goes down. Ruby is pretty much the Vaan of RWBY.
And the amateur writing continues. Good god, do any of them having any professional screen writing experience?
>Ruby is absolutely the least capable fighter on the entire team.
And this is exactly the bullshit writing RT should be ashamed of. Ruby was meant to be that socially awkward prodigy who lives for fighting. And instead she even sucks in fighting.
She's meant to be a socially awkward young teen who is gifted as a fighter and will surely become a very skilled huntress and/or prodigy. Which is exactly what she is. She's skipped years and been admitted into an extremely prestigious fighting school.
It's not that she sucks, is that there are a lot of people who are better. The whole point of the show is that the characters start off as dumb kids and grow, not that they start off as unbeatable monster slayers and continue to be unbeatable monster slayers.
There are so many issues with the show's writing, why do you girls complain about the stuff that makes sense?
Yeah, a lot of students are better than her. Like Jaune. That's why he gets so much screen time!
On a more serious/less convoluted note, it is good thing Ruby isn't the strongest - granted, probably has the most destructive weapon in her year - because that allows growth. We can see Ruby become the strongest over the years
even though the show won't last past v5 in /u/'s opinion.
However, we can't watch her grow if she never fights. Plus, most of the fighting Team RWBY did in v2 kinda made this situation hard to believe for some of the viewers.
posting this to feed my need for more Neo flavored manipulative yandere loving.
Not that anon but you don't have to interact with damn near anyone if you go straight to a user's page.
There is just as much cringe on 4chan as there is on tumblr, only what specific type it is different. No need to pretend tumblr is any worse.
So, I promised I'd be back with a mega upload. Unfortunately, it still requires VLC, and it crashes for me around the 8:50 mark (can be resolved simply by restarting and skipping to 8:52-53):
>Did you watch the trailer?
>Ruby is going to be the guardian of Remnant or something.
That's gonna mean oh so much!
>It's not that she sucks, is that there are a lot of people who are better.
You mean Jaune who didn't even train unlike Ruby and already killed Grimm by swinging his sword with eyes closed? Wow, maybe Rubles should also not have trained before so hard! She'd be even better now!
Remember the time when great Ruby got bitch slapped by White Fang mook? She's really growing. Backwards.
Of course there's cringe on both websites, I'm merely stating why some users of 4chan avoid tumblr.
That would be a reasonable position, except it's not the first episode of the series. You don't get the benefit of the doubt anymore after you're already on your third season and nothing has changed.
I think that's what some of the people on /u/ does: watch the show, but keep our hopes low enough so when
even moreshit hits the fandom, we aren't destroyed by the weight of our crushed hopes. Then keep watching to see how badly they can fuck it up from there.
That's my view on it, but if Iceberg becomes a thing, I'm dropping the show until /u/ says it's safe to come back out.
What about Iceberg becoming a thing
as a vehicle for Weiss to discover her true homo-self?
While I find this idea a good segway into homoqueen coming out, i doubt RT could properly write a scenario such as this, correctly.
I mean, if you have to announce an LGBT character in the show, just to appease queerbait accusations, you know they clearly have no idea what they are doing.
Though half of the /u/ fandom would begin falling into rapture if Iceberg became more prominent, before our gay princess can even come out.
Plus, Weiss is too good for him
Reading Nature's Wrath, that's actually what happens in a flashback.
Yang breaks the news to Weiss about the heiress being, and I quote, "gayer than a rainbow", then Neptune tells Weiss to go after Ruby.
He's a womanizer; he tried to hit on literally everything with two legs and breasts (except for Blake and Ruby) that he was on screen with, of course Weiss is too good for him! Why would M&K thing differently?! It’s as if Weiss were to fall for Jaune at the beginning of the show instead of putting him in his place.
That makes sense, though. She didn't want her friends to find out about her shady past. It's not uncommon for people to confess something to a complete stranger just for the sake of getting it off their chest, without risking any social backlash (see: church confessionals)
Which isn't a secret. Anyone who's not a newfag would know that most sites (4chan included) tend to shit all over tumblr. But the excuse of "wah I don't want to interact with tumblrinas" doesn't apply in this case when you don't have to, at all.
Anyhow, back to yuri.
It's pretty saddening, alright. At least our fellow writefags do good work.
They might be incompetent and a million other things but they aren't fucking blind.
The top ten pairings in ff.net are overwhelmingly dominated by /u/ ships, there are five time as many /u/ pairings than there are het pairings. Hell, just White Rose and Bumblebee tags have twice as many fics as the rest of the top ten combined.
They're pretty familiar with it. Kara (Weiss), and Lindsay (Ruby) aren't big fans of it, but Barbara (Yang) and Arryn (Blake) have fun with the audience being fans of Bumblebee.
Also, not all fans want yuri, sadly. Plenty of the super dedicated RT fanbase is fine with het and doesn't think the show has any problems at all.
Let's pretend M&K aren't hacks and that Blake knows what happens to people who leave the white fang and what happens to Tukson happens regularly. Why would she randomly open up to a guy who was first seen running from the cops? What if he was white fang and there was a bounty on her head?
It's a forced relationship just like iceberg.
Pretty much everyone in the /u/ fandom had a ball with this. While i love the time and effort they spend in acknowledging our existence and delving into the fandom that isn't the rabid RT fanboys or hetfags, they're teases, and have no real impact on the outcome of the show at all.
Arryn and Barb, if your here, I love you guys, but Christ, your killing me here. You guys are too cute.
>Blake knows what happens to people who leave the white fang and what happens to Tukson happens regularly
By all accounts, she shouldn't. The White Fang she left and the White Fang under Cinder are two different things. Blake refused to believe they'd be doing this sort of thing at first and even then tried to appeal to them. Not to mention it wasn't the White Fang that were hunting down deserters, It was Roman and Cinder's minions.
I don't necessarily think they hate it, it's just something they aren't really used to. Their most popular show has a total of 4, maybe 5 girls total, with one or two of them being main characters, and even then, their only main characters during their arcs.
RWBY, on the other hand, has 100000 girls in it, and are seeing another side to their fans that would creep most normies out, for lack of a better term. They aren't used to seeing their characters portrayed as LGBTQ+ yet. Probably because they haven't even thought about such things themselves. They don't have that friend that they can go to for advice or help on the subject, so they can't really write it well.
It doesn't help that they aren't exactly the research type
See, THIS is why we told you this wasn't the board for you.
Out of all those possibilities only one might have any importance to it and that's super mega vanilla Arkos which in and of itself doesn't take much to work with. Even if Pyrrha could do better. Also seriously go fuck yourself for bringing this here.
You shouldn't've had expectations to begin with all things considered.
Also for the love of god, if a discussion about het relations are going to come up remember to learn to sage while doing it.
The point of a yuri board is to discuss yuri.
This is a yuri board.
You're trying to discuss het relationships.
See the problem yet?
Sis, please, Cinder gets Glynda's fire burning when she's not even trying.
It's not that they don't know how to do /u/ or even need advice on the subject. It's just that it was never in the plans to begin with and would go against what was in mind from the start.
Girl pls, everyone has their off days. It wouldn't be that unusual for Cinder to have her fire gutter out when the wind is too strong or some such. Glynda makes for great kindling after all.
Cinder's tourney outfit is just too damn hot, god damn.
Anyone else waiting for Winter x Weiss fan art to be made?
I know that, but all I'm saying is even on her off days, Cinder gets all the girls weak in the knees.
Emerald can't be Cinder's girlfriend or beyond, she's just her plaything. She chose Emerald not only for her looks, but because of her obsessive, undying need for her attention, which she gives to her when she feels like flexing her power over the weak-willed and submissive.
Glynda, on the other hand, is exactly the kind of woman she needs. Confident, authoritative, responsible, refined, mature,
fantastic in bed, and most importantly, loving. Glynda knows that Cinder's on the dark side, but she cares for her regardless, because she knows that there's still the optimistic, cheery young woman she fell in love with so many years ago behind that sinister, strangely sensual facade.
Cinder can fuck Emerald all she likes, but she can only make love to Glynda.
That's not even headcanon, that's a fact.
Damn you got me about Cinder making all the knees weak. I wonder how Glynda can be so resistant to such an effect.
She's not resistant, she's actually far weaker than all the other girls, knowing exactly what Cinder is capable of. She's simply an expert at hiding her impossibly high arousal.
You sure she's effected the most? Seems kind of silly considering her cool exterior.
>a gay character isn't exactly the most complex character design ever
It appears to be, as very rarely do shows/movies/etc. do it well. It may not be complex to you, but perhaps to a straight person otherwise unfamiliar with being gay I think it might be a bit more complex than one would initially think. It's thinking from a perspective that is completely different to one's own (and yes, all love is the "same love" but because we live in a world that doesn't wholly treat it that way it really is a different perspective) which tends to be tough for writers, let alone the ones over at RT. They do fucking great with certain things, no doubt, but they are not the best with complexities of this nature.
I think that Sis was referring to LGBT characters, not people. Though it does sound stupid saying it out loud, there are examples of LGBT characters done right that RT could pull from.
That is true. Arryn only mentioned it once in a tweet, and she never brought it up again
I just follow her because she's a legit good person and posts stuff she finds in the RWBY fandom. As well as banter and bumbleby jokes between Barb.
>Sexuality is not a personality trait.
It isn't but it affects environmental factors that play a role in developing personality. Much the same way any stigmatized characteristic does.
So, sisters, I'm finally going to start working on a Beauty and the Beast Bumblebee fic; anything you would like to see in it? I can guarantee it'll make the cut, but I aim to please when I can.
My Enabler fic stalled. I have to work on something else and hope inspiration will return in time.
I have been waiting forever for this. Thank you, based writefag
I would prefer to see Yang as the beast, as Blake being a faunas isn't exactly a reason as to why she would be the "beast" and I'd love to have Yang be dorky and awkward.
Who else is there to pick who would work as Gaston? Torchwick doesn't fit, as he doesn't have a gruff appearance.
Cardin would work, but he doesn't have that same connection to Blake that Adam has.
I just can't seem to find the voice of their relationship. It's so ripe for development: the depressed father, Yang stepping up and prioritizing Ruby while slowly understanding over time that she loves her too much, the tantalizing possibility of them not being siblings, etc. I see all these little moments but I can't seem to find a thread that connects them, and I'm struggling with choosing whose voice to follow. I want it to be a shorter piece, but it's not flowing for me right now. Something's in the way and it's KILLING me.
Thanks for listening, Oneesan.
Wow. You seem really into it. I wish I could give you better advice then what I've got. But maybe you could start by writing some stuff down? Getting your thoughts down somewhere can be a big help.
When I realized Enabler had potential, it was when I saw that the relationship could be a really angsty mess.
>Yang learns at a young age they are half-siblings
>It doesn't initially change anything, "Ruby is [her] little sister!"
>As they grow older, she begins to understand that her love for Ruby isn't entirely familial
>Ruby is overly affectionate, dependent, and clingy towards her older sister
>Yang grows increasingly distressed by her own feelings, even if its half, they are still sisters. She is ever more disgusted with herself for having such thoughts about her little sister.
>Struggles with the crushing guilt and self-disgust against a Ruby who seems to growl more lovely and attractive with every passing day.
>Ends up dating (Blake?) to try and distract herself, but it doesn't help
>Begins giving into temptation, finding small excuses and ways to be overly affectionate and touchy with Ruby, feeling her up when they are horsing around, watching her when they are in the showers together, sneaking kisses and touches when Ruby climbs into her bunk.
>Has to deal with the weight of both her early distress over her desires as well as the guilt and stress of betraying Blake, and the risks of being caught.
If looking for less canon, and/or more AU:
>Similar to above, but Ruby is much younger, an innocent kid just wants her nee-san to be happy, and is willing to do whatever to please her, doesn't quite understand relationships, sexuality or that incest is "wrong"
>Yang takes advantage of her docile and eager to please nature to sex her
>Feels like trash for cheating on her girlfriend with kid sister
Pretty much everything is great with angst, imouto.
I agree with >>1900070
Dorky awkward Yang would be good. She shouldn't be a complete dick like the beast is at the beginning, but anger management issues is definitely there.
How about Neptune? If I remember the movie right, women were falling for Gaston left and right, and he actively tries to hit on Belle when he has no chance. Then again, Blake and Neptune have had no interactions in canon, so I'm happy with Cardin.
There's so much angst because "Forbidden Love" and stuff. Incest is open to angst most of the time, but most authors and artists go for the more vanilla route.
>Incest is open to angst most of the time, but most authors and artists go for the more vanilla route.
Because incest stories are usually either Angst or Smut. I'd like one where there's minimal angst but leads to a relatively happy end where the couple is together. Now if only the fantasy genre could make a story about a princess falling for her own queen.
Because if there is no angst or smut, then there's no reason for the incest.
If you have a series where two girls at an all girls school fall in love and go on dates... and also they are sisters, but no one cares or notices, and them being sisters doesn't really do much and they are just a normal yuri couple... That second part isn't really doing anything for your story.
The one exception I can think of is when its twins. Because then there is the whole one heart in two bodies thing.
But that's really just a more subtle form of angst, because it plays on the whole obsessive/possessive love thing.
Sibling incest, I was looking for vertical incest so it'd be more like Snow white falling in love with Grimhilde/Evil Queen In relation to RWBY, it'd be Yang having the hots for Raven or more like Raven having a weird attraction to Yang.
Yeah, I was mostly going for a kek moment there Also, maybe over the years of observing and protecting Yang from the shadows, Raven sees how well Yang has grown, so she reveals herself to her daughter in hopes of starting something wonderful ibn4, Raven is the gay character
I don't think Raven would have the time initially to watch over Yang in such a way but maybe when Yang's ten or so, she'd probably have enough time to comfortably begin watching her daughter grow into a beautiful woman.
It'd be incredibly helpful for the cause if Raven left right after Yang was born instead of around the toddler years. God no pls, if she's gay that'd make me desire Raven x Summer super hard.
Proto-enabler would probably be Raven X Summer all things considered but yeah something like that.
It's pretty understandable as sad as the notion of Summer being fully dead is, however, that won't stop me from making thinking up backstories 'n' stuff for a lesbian Summer. If the right pairing comes up.
Neptune would work, if Belle was Weiss in this case, but Cardin fits in well, considering his views on faunus. While you are right about Gastons character, as he's a buff, egotistical womanizer, Neptune doesn't really interact with Blake in canon that much.
Personally, I'd love Neptune as gaston just so we can actively hate him more and see him die in the end, but Cardin fits better
Also, yes. Dorky, grumpy Yang will work better than angsty and mean Yang. Blake should also be snarky, sharp tongued, but enjoyable and accepting.
Who's gonna play Belles Father?
That's what we call "Baby's first ship"
Most writers believe tsunderes, such as the homoqueen, insult merely because they are attracted to the one they are insulting right off the bat. When in reality, the dynamic of the banters that follow after time had passed, and the two begin to get to know each other, and the use of insults as a way to hide developing feelings, is how this works.
Weiss works with Ruby romantically because they are opposites. Ruby is accepting, adventurous, and sensitive to others around her. Weiss is cold (on the outside) intolerant to new things, and believes she is on a set path in life. Opposites attract.
WR works because it boils down to "Rubles melting the Ice Queens heart"
Agreed, Ruby does seem hard to fit in the current cast. But this is an AU, the author can go in a completely new direction by adding a new item for Ruby to be, or change up the castle's staff completely.
Also, there was a feather duster?
I rewatched the movie recently. It's much better than The Little Mermaid in terms of female leads and song writing.
I still remember the songs pretty clearly, specially the first one.
/aco/ is right across the street, new friend. Better leave before you make a fool of yourself.
I think you should head back on over to reddit, friend.
Honestly curious about what other RWBY boards say about the show
other than shipping. What are their views? Like, do they also think M&K are running it into the ground? I'd look for myself, but it's much safer here in the submarines. It’s much cleaner.
I tried to look at /co/ but it's just a shitstorm. They acknowledge the show is pretty lackluster but beyond that, it's unreadable. Don't even bother with them. Stay here where it's nice and safe.
I don't have the screenshot, but there was that post on /v/ about how RWBY is that comic/anime idea you had when you were 13 that became your life's work instead of fading away like it should have.
/y/ is probably having a fun time with it."Jaunedice" alone is enough for years of fuel for them, let alone all the shit with monkey boy and the iceberg.
>Who's gonna play Belle's Father?
I was actually thinking Port. I know it seems like a strange choice at first, but he's the same kind of smart-but-bumbling old man, and we know he has a very soft spot for Faunus from his time in Menagerie. I was thinking he had adopted Blake when she was younger.
I might actually use both Adam and Cardin, but for different things; they'd never work together, but perhaps they could each be worked into the story somehow. I'm not sure how much of the overall plot will transfer over from the movie -- it's hard to rewrite a classic story without just making it a copy with different characters. Here's hoping I don't fuck it up!
>first episode of season 3 is out
>no flood of episode screenshots with people trying to find even the slightest bit of s/u/btext with the new & old cast
what happened to you guys?
that used to be one of the most fun things to read while going through a RWBY /u/ thread, back when the episodes came out on a weekly basis.
I also hoped that our fic writers would come out of hibernation long enough to find at least some delicious oneshots to write with the little bits of story the first episode gave us. Is that also no longer a thing?
>what happened to you guys?
There wasn't much to go on, and unlike s2 what was, was used in a sneak peek trailer so that got it out of the system. Give it time. One doesn't instantly spring back from hibernation.
You mean freezerburn?
Hiatus has worn down our spirits
Admittedly, Reese had her appeal when the preshow leaked during RTX a few months ago, though it probably would have helped if the fans didn't leak it at all, because her appeal has run dry at this point apparently. Plus her hoverboard didn't have the same excitement as Back to the Future did, awkwardly enough.
Now that Arslan has gotten more screen time, I'll admit I've grown fond of her. Though her weapon (a whipcord, or just a whip?) seems to be the simplest in the show
unless it's also a gun.
The guys on the team were pretty great
at dying .
I think she meant
Also, the entire time we've awaited vol 3, everything we could disuss I'm /u/ has been leaked long beforehand or is common knowledge.
what's good in the fic world, sisters?
I read that as well. Looks promising, but I'm a bit skeptical about the whole vampire AU all together.
>tfw no chapter for Red Carpet Romance in a two months.
I like the idea of vampire AUs but usually they just end up being all edgy about vampires drinking blood. Not even actually edgy with consequences and moral dilemmas about not wanting to harm people but needing to feed.
well Arryn is definitely bi. I feel like after being bffls with her, Barb may be more fluid now. I mean, Arryn is the type where she'll get drunk and make out with chicks, why not Barb?
>every heresy pic deserves a otp pic in response
>proceeds to post subtle heresy
don't make me open my archived WR folders now...
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class at Beacon academy, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on the White Fang, and I have over 300 confirmed kills.
>In a world literally filled with monsters
all these flavors and you chose to be salty.
at least you recognize your mistakes.
I prefer to call them "happy accidents"
and here I was almost ready to forgive you.
I tried reverse image searching everywhere. No luck
Also, sorry for asking, but I lost the link to Ram Jam's (Leo) tumblr. Help me out, sisters?
