Hey Blakey. What's Weiss doing? *Yang asked her girlfriend, giving her a kiss on top of the head.*
She said she was training. So I think maybe to do a new summoning. *She smiled As they watch Weiss form a glyph on the ground.*
Oh. Wonder what it will be?
*Meanwhile as Weiss looks like she is focusing on her Glyph she think.* I am not gay for Ruby. I am not gay for Ruby. I am not gay for Ruby. I am not gay for Ruby. I am not gay for Ruby. I am not gay for Ruby. I am not gay for Ruby. I am not gay for Ruby. I am not gay for-
*walks in and waves to Weiss with a cheerful smile.* Hi Weiss!~
FUCK! *Weiss shouts in her head blushing upon seeing Ruby as her glyph Actives and summons a Ruby with puppy ears and a tail.* ... 0////0;
-__-; ... On the bright side, Now we have more options on who to go on double dates now.
During the episode we hear more about the Maidens and their role in unlocking the relics. Although, we don’t know which relic is in which school, we learn that each of the Maidens can unlock a certain relic.
Winter - Creation
Fall - Choices
Summer - Destruction
Spring - Knowledge
These can also relate to team RWBY as each of the members closely resembles on season ( past, present or future).
Weiss would be the Winter Maiden as her power allows her to be creative and as we see her now - create opportunities for herself and forge new paths. Not the one her father planned out for her.
Blake would be the Fall Maiden as it’s her choices that got her to who she is now. Joining the White Fang, attending Beacon, going back to the island. Her choices heavily influenced her life and is more prominent than the other 3.
Yang would be the Summer Maiden. It’s not hard to see why, really. She’s always been feisty and slightly destructive. When she “ gets destroyed” by Adam in the Fall of Beacon, it’s the catalyst for her character growth. She eventually gets her mojo back and still is the badass we know and love.
Last but not least, Ruby has the potential to be the Spring Maiden. Unlike the others who we’ve seen the maiden’s relics in, hers is a bit more abstract. As of now, she’s in Mistral with the rest of team RNJR, she know more about the Maidens than the other’s of team RWBY. She is also the youngest and has a lot of room to grow, I can see her gaining more knowledge during the end of the series and becoming an even more formidable opponent.
What do you love the most about RWBY? Also, who's your favorite character?
The characters. When I fall in love with shows or movies or books it’s always for their characters. Their personalities, their conflicts, their developement. RWBY has a lot of incredible layered characters who constantly get challenged and need to learn to grow. Just look at Weiss. Yang. Blake. All of them.
So… I don’t know. I love Weiss because she seems so unlikable in the beginning but later on we don’t only forgive her behaviour, we know why she acted like that and see her grow so much. I love Yang because she is so much more than people think she is and she has an incredible amount of love for all the people in her life. I love Blake because she set herself free from her abusive ex boyfriend and struggles so much to grow past her unhealthy way to deal with problems. I love Jaune because he has always tried to be a better version of himself and follow his dreams even though he didn’t even believe in himself and is still trying to even though he has lost so much. I love Ruby, Winter, Qrow, Raven, Mercury, Emerald, Cinder, Sienna, Roman, Neo, Ren and Nora.
Despite popular belief, Ruby would not be Spring. To reiterate what I have said in previous posts, Cinder’s arc at this point in the series revolves around her constant anxiousness/paranoia/hatred for Ruby. If Cinder were to die, the last on her thoughts would likely be her inability to exact revenge upon Ruby, or the fact that Ruby, herself, is the one who kills her. Also, the season after summer (as in Summer Rose) is fall, to adhere to her rose-petal-forever-fall motif. Ruby would be the Fall Maiden.
Weiss Schnee’s name literally means “white snow.” She wears a snowflake on her back, has mainly white/blue colors, and most of her ties are to her family, the “Snow”s. However, Weiss has just escaped her family, leaving them behind and learning to grow. (Note the key words.) Not to mention her older sister, whom she takes after, Winter. This, along with the fact that she is now geographically closest and nearest in age to the Spring Maiden, leads me to believe that Weiss would be Spring.
Now, Yang would obviously be Summer: she takes after her mother’s qualities, has the most lasting memory of her between her and her sister, and specifically has pockets of summer-based motifs – “who burns just like the sun,” “hotter than the sun in the middle of July,” et cetera.
Blake is Winter, simply because she is last, but… Cold and longlasting? Remaining for a long time to reflect and to think things through? Hiding from the Su– oh wait. But in all seriousness, I’m skeptical. Blake doesn’t seem like the Winter from the story. This concerns me.
I think even worse than the actual implications of fridging a poc character in her first appearance for sake of a white dude importance, are the implications behind the whole set up.
I mean the whole plot literally(intentionally or unintentionally) screams“If you are gonna chose anything but peaceful protest when representing and standing up for your marginalized group, it will be a slippery slope till you eventually create extremists who will stab you to start a genocide of everyone different than your marginalized group”
That’s FUCKING GROSS ANALOGY, especially if you draw parallels to real world concepts of social activism(be it to standing up against racism or standing up against fascism)…
As if the whole “violence on both sides” bullshit with Blake versus WF was not enough, since when did RT start parroting white supremacist right wing nutjob talking points in their shows?
I know everyone’s mad about Sienna Khan’s death. I am too. I personally am sad because I love dark skinned characters and seeing them in RWBY. Their designs are always cute and well thought out- but only used within a single episode use over the span of 3-6 minutes. Luckily Emerald is our main gal, but she hasn’t had decent screen time since Volume 3. I think Sienna Khans Death was supposed to prove a point. That Adam is kinda worse than we thought. We hadn’t seen him in forever and he does have quite the set of fan girls. This was done to make him completely unlikable. I’m sure RT wanted a legitimate villain, not the kind who just carries out his evil plan and fails continuously while waving his fist at his foes for foiling his plans once again. No, he’s dead serious, and I’m sure they wanted the fans to be reminded of his true nature. It is a shame that Sienna Khans design goes to waste, but let’s not make this a race war within the fandom. One little thing shouldn’t cause such a conundrum between (mostly) adults. It’d be nice for some representation, but I’m sure some patience will reward us ❤️
no but for real there is SO much tension between Blake and Ilia and the fucking?? the looks??? Ilia’s eyes EVERY time she looks at Blake?? they’re exes and Ilia still has feelings for her I’m telling you
I’ve been in a huge rut the past month but I’m really happy with how this turned out. I wanted to animate a quiet moment between two characters who really deserve a quiet moment. I’m hoping this one can break my 7000 note record but that might be wishful thinking
