Summary[edit | edit source]
"A Slip Through Time and Space Pt. 2" consists of one short named "A Slip Through Time and Space, Pt. 2", in which Nora Valkyrie drinks an even higher dosage of caffeine in the form of espresso shots.
Yang Xiao Long is conducting a therapy session for Ruby Rose who is upset about Weiss Schnee stealing her cookie. At the same time, Nora Valkyrie barges in to announce that she will drink even more coffee. To do so, she has restrained Lie Ren.
Nora downs her thermos full of coffee and travels to the Rooster Teeth office in the form of a RWBY Blind Box figure. Nora is urged by two figure versions of chibified Jaune Arc and Ruby to hide from an approaching Barbara Dunkelman wearing a Rooster Teeth Pride Community Tee. Barbara leaves after deciding that everything is fine with the merchandise. The figures tell Nora she is in the real world and talk about the relationship between RWBY and its fans.
They lead her to "The Great One", the one that freed them, who turns out to be a plush toy of Pyrrha Nikos. After that, they tell Nora to choose between the Red vs Blue shirt and the Blue vs Red shirt. Nora decides to return to her box which causes her to wake up in RWBY Chibi and get scared by Pyrrha.
Transcript[edit | edit source]
In a space of pure whiteness, the giant blocky title and a certain rose emblem drop from the sky to the ground, where the four miniaturized members of Team RWBY pop out from behind it to smile, wave and adopt poses for the audience while an unseen speaker announces the show as: "RWBY CHIBI"!
Yang: Now, when Weiss took away your cookie, how did it make you feel?
Ruby: Hurt! Betrayed! (Her stomach grumbles) Hungry...
Yang: Hm. Yes. Go on.
Suddenly, Nora Valkyrie enters the room holding a thermos.
Nora: Guys! I figured it out!
Ruby: Nora! I'm in the middle of healing!
Nora: Listen. It's not that I shouldn't drink coffee, it's that I haven't been drinking enough at once! I need MORE!!
Ruby: Uh, hey, where's Ren?
Yang: Is that whole thing filled with coffee?
Nora: No, silly! It's filled with espresso shots!
Lie Ren enters the room, though he is tied up and gagged. He tries to warn Nora, but it's in vain.
Nora: (popping open the thermos) LET'S DO THIS!!!
Ruby, Yang, and Ren all scream "Nooooooooo!" when Nora gulps down the contents of the thermos. The camera zooms in on her right eye, which then transitions to a white blank space with a small black dot. The dot grows bigger and transitions to the real world. There are many RWBY Blind Box Figure boxes on a shelf, one of them shakes and falls down. The box opens up to reveal a chibi figure of Nora walking around trying to come to. She looks at her surroundings and wonders where she is.
The camera zooms out to show Nora on a shelf full of RWBY merchandise.
Nora: What the-?
Suddenly, she hears a door open. She sees a large human hand trying to reach for a light switch.
Barbara: Where is that pesky light switch?
Nora's attention is then drawn when chibi figures of Ruby and Jaune Arc tell her to hide.
Jaune: (whispering) Psssst! Over here! Hurry!
Nora looks back to the hand when it finds the light switch.
Barbara: Ah! Here it is.
The door fully opens up to reveal Barbara Dunkelman.
Barbara: Phew! Just wanted to make sure our high quality merchandise was still safe.
She looks at the figure boxes on the shelves, not noticing that one of the blind boxes is open.
Barbara: Yep, still great! (nodding) Alright, time to go.
She turns the light off and closes the door before leaving.
Ruby: Oh, it's a good thing she didn't see you! That would've been bad.
Nora: What... is this place?
Jaune: This... is the real world.
Jaune: You... we were living in a simulation. This is life outside the screen.
Ruby: The giant ones, they seem to worship us and our lives.
Nora: What do you mean by "worship"? (they all stop to look at something) Whoaaaaa!
Shots of various RWBY merchandise are shown while Ruby speaks.
Ruby: They make tapestries dedicated to us, they write songs based on our adventures, they even wear stylish and comfortable clothing in our honor!
Nora: Wow! I'll bet they're affordable as well!
Ruby: Oh, you know it!
Nora: I don't get it! How did you all get out? How did I get out?
Jaune: Oh, the Great One saved us all. She showed us the light.
Nora: Great... One?
Nora: Is that...?
Jaune: The Great One.
The camera pans up to reveal the Great One, which is actually a giant plush figure of Pyrrha Nikos.
Jaune: You now have a choice: You pick the Blue vs Red shirt, the story ends. You wake up in your bed and believe what you want to believe. You pick the Red vs Blue shirt, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes—She's already back in the box, isn't she?
Nora gets back in her box and the screen goes back to a small black dot with the white space from before. The camera zooms out of Nora's eye as she returns to her dimension. She is seen laying on the ground with a pillow while Ruby, Yang and Ren watched over her, the latter is somehow free from his bonds. Nora blinks rapidly and sits up.
Ren: Are you okay?
Nora: Yeah, I think. I'm okay.
Yang: Well, alright then.
Pyrrha: (popping her head through the door) Is everything okay in here?
Nora screams, startling everyone.
