Let me preface this by saying that I don’t normally do this. I’ve never willfully removed myself from a website or a community that I find (or once found) enjoyable, and I’ve never quit watching a show that I’ve become invested in. Truth is, I loved RWBY, and I loved being a part of this fandom. But I don’t anymore. I’ll split this blog into two sections, addressing both entities and why they’ve become so intolerable to me.
When I first started watching RWBY, I was delighted and entranced by the sheer joy and quirkiness that it exuded. It was fun, it was unique, and it was written by people who were truly invested in it. You could see the love and hard work that they were putting into every scene. They were good at it, and they liked…

Another new video is live on my YouTube Channel!
Ruby's memories show how much she remembers and clings to when preserving life... and they match up one for one with screenshots from the show. The artists traced over screenshots but also took some liberties to show exactly how Ruby remembers those wonderful moments.
In time I will likely upload all of the screenshots I took for the video. But there's a total of 25 memories, two of them being the Taiyang one that doesn't have a "matching moment" and Summer Rose, who also doesn't. So that leaves me with 46 pictures to upload, and I'll get around to it soon!
EDIT: I have uploaded most of the screenshots onto my "RVE Comps" user page.Read more >
This document describes the roles I believe characters should take in RWBY. It mainly provides more details on the Tank, DPS, Support, or Controller roles and why they are essential to combatRead more >
The purpose of this is a form that you can fill out if you would like me to make a character sheet for what you would look like in the RWBY verse.
I did not include appearances, as I felt it made the form too long, but if you include it, I might make an attempt to draw it.Read more >
This is for further discussion on your semblance for the semblance trade thread.
This blog will only be used to:
1) Make the semblance fit your personality or hobbies better. This requires further details on personality.
2) Find potential applicatons
Read more >
If you want to talk about your own semblance and you have not already, please make a new comment, rather than adding onto an already existing comment thread.
Simple as that. I still like the show but I've found other places to discuss things, more varied opinions, and at this point only thing I'm here for anymore is news updates. I'll pop in once and awhile through Volume 7 since I made a bingo card, but I think I'm done here. Nice meeting and talking with most of ya, so best of luck to you. For now though, this is goodbye.

RWBY is a show that struggles mightily with establishing relationships, developing characters and having protagonists engage with one another. Several pairs almost never interact, despite being part of a tight-knit team that supposedly does everything together. Part of the reason for this is that too much time is spent on shipbaiting.
This has been a problem since RWBY premiered, and has slowly intensified over the years. Why have Ruby and Blake bond when you can just tease the masses with some underdeveloped Flower Power crap? Why develop Oscar when you can just have Blake and Yang hold hands, tantalizingly, over and over? Why do anything worthwhile when you can just feed lonely adolescents some angsty, pseudo-romantic garbage to fuel…

I am of the firm opinion that skill is more valuable in a fight than a good weapon, a huge aura pool, or an overpowered semblance.
Each of the latter things are tools that all require skill to use, just like in real life. The best thing about skill is that it is a gift that never stop giving. No matter what, there is always something to learn.
Skill breeds confidence. Skill breeds success. Skill builds a healthy mind, body, and soul in a fight.
That's why hunters and huntresses beat the Grimm. They work hard day and night to beat the Grimm. They have determination. Despite being smaller, weaker, and more fragile than most elder Grimm, they still succeed because they use their skills, together or apart.Read more >
Crossposted on the weapon foundry XXV
Ideas I dismissed for my own OC:
Pros: the suit would allow for temporary aerial superiorty while being relatively inexpensive and lightweight.
Cons: Not only requires time to set up flight (due to needing height), but would only hinder the user in CQC
Ideas I was willing to entertain for my own OC:
Active Denial Weapon- uses microwaves to crowd control
Pros: Heats the layer of fat under the skin and basically microwaves you
Cons: Non-lethal, , extremely unlikely to have, not as effective in blinding if opponents have eyewear, can cause cancer, birth defects, blisters, and cornea damage.
Pros: single target crowd control, can be dust infused
Cons: Ineffective against fast or large targets.

This is a summary of the theory I had about aura having shear thickening properties. The thread can be found here: https://rwby.fandom.com/wiki/Thread:638683
I believe aura has shear-thickening properties. This means that the viscosity of a non-newtonian fluid increases with pressure, like oobleck (cornstarch and water). This means that with low speeds, Aura can be passed through easily, but at extremely high speeds, it acts like a solid.
Obviously, Aura is not actually a fluid, but by treating it as having similar principles to shear thickening fluids, a lot can be explained.
"Aura does not exhibit true non-newtonian properties, but it does have a few similarities."- Phantom
I think as aura levels drop, the ability of aura to harden like a no…

The Grimm can actually see.
"so grimm have eyes, huh? why didn't the nuckelavee stopped moving and started looking anywhere? Keep in mind that this is fiction. Nothing makes sense and you should know better. "- Umbrellish.
This is the counterarguement. Some might consider this a very excellent point. I do too, but that doesn't stop me from feeling attacked and humiliated. That's why I'm going to prove him wrong with one simple fact.
If the Grimm could not see, then how would they walk without bumping into things like buildings or mailboxes? The only other possibility I see is every Grimm having ecolocation.
What I believe is that Grimm have a sixth sense that allows them to sense negative emotions in a manner similar to smell. Ren's semblanc…Read more >
I feel frustrated because I don't quite understand most of the people that scan the weapon and semblance forums, and vice-versa.
People always accuse me of overthinking things, and I know they mean well. But I can't help but feel attacked. Why can I accept the fact that bolas weren't used to strangle people, but for people to understand their OC's can't use their weapon to their full potential in the RWBY world, let alone the real world? I just feel like I'm letting a baby play next to a cliff if I don't correct something.

1) Size. If you have a rifle knife or an extending pistol spear, then something's wrong. When either of these things happen, weapons either become impossible to use in firearm or melee for…

My next video is a "part 2" to RWBY's Visual Evolution. This one will only focus on how/why 2D assets are used. Out of everything I put into the video, the coolest, to me, is a parallel that every time the heroes approach a new setting for an arc (Beacon Academy, Mistral, Atlas), the exact same shot composition is used. A 3D airship flies in from the left toward a 2D asset of the location. (The thing to the right was uploaded as a video clip but appears to be a low-res image. whoops.)
The video will look at:
- 2D character models (like V1's Emerald and Mercury)
- 2D environments (like V6's matte paintings plus, well, the image up there^)
- 2D effects (like V1Ep2's Ruby Chibi)
- And what I call 2D narrations (the 2D-animated flashbacks like V2Ep6's Yang…
EDIT: My second video, Every Time "Forever Fall" Music is in RWBY V1-6, is now live! As it turns out, the person who reviewed the copyright claim let it go through, but the way the wording looked, it appeared as if my dispute wasn't accepted. So it's live! It's an earlier version, so there's some things I changed to make it better that aren't in this, but it is the fullest, completest account of the leitmotif in video form that I can possibly have, and I am so glad this is over.
I decided to make this video second because it is so, so much quicker to do than RWBY's Visual Evolution, and it's another video that somehow hasn't been made by anyone else yet - at least as far as I know from scrolling through a bunch of searches as I looked for s…Read more >

Here's a hint about my next video. After "RWBY's Visual Evolution" was so cumbersome to make, I'm using this one as a way to get something simpler out faster.
- "The Shining Beacon, Pt.2" (0:44 - 1:13) Ruby leaves Jaune to go to Yang.
- "The First Step, Pt.2" - (3:05 - 3:18) Pyrrha finds Jaune stuck to a tree.
- "The Emerald Forest" - (6:16 - 6:39) Pyrrha unlocks Jaune's Aura.
- "Jaunedice" - (2:00 - 2:05) Pyrrha looks worryingly at Jaune after his sparring match with Cardin.
- "Jaunedice, Pt.2" - (3:50 - 5:07) Pyrrha takes Jaune up to the dorm roof and offers to train him.
- "Forever Fall, Pt.2" - (4:24 - 5:43) Jaune and Pyrrha make up on the dorm roof.

Dr. Merlot I think is potentially one of the most dangerous villains in Remnant. He can modify Grimm into becoming larger and stronnger than even their elder counterparts. Grimm even gain entirely new abilities from the mutation, but what species of Grimm do you think would be the most dangerous if Merlot got his hands on them?Read more >
RWBY's look has evolved like crazy since Volume 1, and I'm in the process of making a video on all the broad things that have changed Volume by Volume. I'll upload the video hopefully within a week, but here are some stills of what I've made so far.
There are comparison shots of this for every Semblance with a visual cue, and yeah even environmental things to show how environments have changed too. The video seems to be somewhere between fifteen and twenty minutes long at the moment. Would you like to see it when I'm done?

Merlot actually has quite a bit of dialogue in Grimm Eclipse, to prove my point here's a list of quote I think we could maybe add to his a quote page if we give him one.

Blind Worms are large worm like Grimm creatures with a giant mouth that appeared in "After the Fall" and the RWBY Chinese game.
They are enormous worm-like Grimm capable of burrowing underground and through the sands of Vacuo. They have a singular red eye and a giant fanged mouth. These Worms can range from 6 feet to as big as Flatback Sliders, and are built to be far faster when traveling in sands. Like the King Taijitu, they have a head on each end of their body
Their defenses include bone plates, hooks and acidic blood. Their attacks include spikes for teeth and are capable spitting acid.

Finally got off my butt and made my Bingo card for Volume 7. It was kinda hard to figure out what I wanted to put on it, so I ended up just throwing things at it just to fill up the 24 squares. Basically, it's a mix of hopes, predictions, and cynicism. It's always so hard to figure out how I want to arrange everything.
I'm hoping Watts will actually do something since he's been assigned to go to Atlas, after being so passive for the past few volumes.
Still waiting for that Cheshire Cat character that Gray was so nervous about.

I've been thinking about the villages that we saw in central Mistral in Volumes 4 & 5. Team RNJR passed through 5 of them: The unnamed village in The Next Step, Shion, Higanbana, Oniyuri and Kuroyuri
Kuroyuri does not appear to have been part of the Kingdom of Mistral, but was independent. Mistral police flights do not fly over it as part of their patrol route, and it was only the 'smoke' plume from the dead Nuckelavee that attracted by chance the attention of a pair of airships. As well, the Nuckelavee was still alive 10-12 years after the desctruction of Kuroyuri. I can understand the village being destroyed, but if Kuroyuri was part of Mistral I have trouble understanding why the Nuckelavee was not hunted down and destroyed shortly after…Read more >

The airship landed, the blonde boy running to a trash can on the dock and continuing to vomit. The group stepped out on the dock looking at the towering, castle-like building before them. “Beacon Academy,” Ivor stood in awe, “we finally made it.”
The group was ecstatic that they made it to the place that would teach them about the thing they would do for the rest of their lives. All except for Vulcan. Beneath the wrappings, he grimaced. Another school, another chance to be harassed, he thought. Vulcan had a hard time making friends, Turkis, Ivor, and Laurel, were low key the only friends he had outside of his family. Frowning, he thought back to an incident from his childhood. He was in fourth grade at the time.

Long ago, before time had a name, there existed two brothers who created the world. The older brother ruled over creation, light, order, and destiny, while the younger brother commanded destruction, darkness, chaos, and coincidence. One day, the older brother created man, and gifted the world Remnant with a miraculous substance known as dust. Man worshipped the older brother, their creator, with great reverence. Unbeknownst to them, the younger brother lurked in the shadows, cultivating anger for his brother, as no one ever paid him any respect.
One day, the younger brother got an idea. He took a handful of the dust, something man didn’t know existed, and corrupted it with his power. The substance became known in legend as shadow dust, a su…Read more >
The author of After The Fall is sharing one line from the book each day until the book comes out on the 25th.
- Day 1: "Of all the things listed in Velvet’s mental list of 'cons' about Vacuo, number one was the lack of anything to include under 'pros.'"
- Day 2: "More of the dark, deadly creatures poured into Beacon with every passing hour, faster than they could be destroyed. The monsters were the stuff of nightmares, all shadow and bone, fire and fury."
- Day 3: "The First-years had been at Beacon for barely a day, and they were all about to die."

Okay so everyone hates Volume 6, that’s not a secret.
But there have been some claims and criticisms made towards the series that I thought I should address, some debunk. Some of these criticisms I actually believed back when I rid the Volume 6 hatewagon for a bit.
So let’s start this list off
“The Brunswick Arc was filler!”
This one I generally don’t get.
...what exactly was filler about it? If it were filler, it would have no connection to the main plot whatsoever when it does. Weiss started to question the mission, Qrow was depressed, everyone needed time to process the fact that Salem couldn’t be killed before moving on. The only problem I have is that nobody seemed to doubt the mission, only doing so under the influence of the Apathy, b…

After Adam's loss at the Battle of Haven and his death at the end of volume 6, a lot of people were pissed off. They claimed that Adam had been nerfed, so that Yang and Blake could kill him for Bumblebee-related reasons or something like that. Or, as one viewer claimed, for a feminist agenda.
However, this bakes the question: was Adam actually nerfed? The answer to that is quite simple, really. He wasn't. And there's quite a bit of evidence to suggest he wasn't. But first of all, why do people assume Adam was a badass, skilled warrior anyway?
I'm gonna start off by quoting Alhazad2003
I'd say a lot of people are still seething because they thought Adam was more than he turned out to be, they bought into his style and never noticed his lacking…Read more >

In Volume 6, we have three story threads, each with its own timeline.
-The story thread of RWBY/JNPR/Oscar/Qrow/Maria, which I'm going to call the 'hero' thread
-The Cinder thread
-The story thread of Hazel/Emerald/Mercury/Watts/Tyrian/Salem, which I'm going to call the 'villain' thread

The Hero thread.

Now I'm going to talk about the similarly designed ship seen in V4E12, "No Safe Haven" that Yang sails to an unnamed port in western Anima as part of her search for Raven. We don't know if Yang boarded this ship in Patch, in Vale, or if she rode Bumblebee across Eastern Sanus to a small port.
At first glance this ship looks the same as the Pride-class ship, but it's not. A very similar design, but it's smaller. There is no top deck with a bridge, there are eight large windows along the lower hull instead of ten, and it looks like there is no battery of side guns. It's possible that this ship travels only through waters that are so regularly travelled that protection from the Grimm is handled by naval forces of the Kingdoms, and other than a…Read more >
For this blog post, I'm going to talk about something that has never been covered before in RWBY. Ships.
(Y'know, boats. Why, what did you think I meant?)
As always, this is mostly non-canon, based off of observations, real life, and some logic.
First off, I dislike calling it 'the Ship', as it's called on the Wiki, so I'm going to refer to it as a Pride-class ship. This is based on the reference in V4E12, "No Safe Haven" with Yang holding a photo of a similar ship, with her thumb partially covering the name 'Pride _____'. Names like ''Pride of Mistral' or 'Pride of Vale' wouldn't be that unusual in our world, so I'm going to run with it.

Yeah, I'm an old fan of RWBY.
As in, right from the Red Trailer.
However, I lost a massive amount of interest in the show at certain points, with the final point being Pyrrha's Death. (I personally felt that Pyrrha's Death, was a magum opus in how to ignore good writing and more importantly, is an example of "I'll make the character stupid for the sake of the story" rather than the character naturally being that way as apart of their personality.)
The show's writing was bleeding everywhere and the pacing became a disaster. Characters became highly inconsistent or were rushed or just cliche. And with SO MANY wasted oppotunities for interesting character arcs. (Yang is a great example of wasted potential, with having a compelling arc after los…
