Hello again! Okay so this one is a bit (lot) different. The ones I’ve written before are set at Beacon but this was an idea I had to do something with. It’s a future fic and White Rose. It took me a long time to finish it cause I’ve been dealing with some writer’s block, but I hope you like it regardless.
Anyway, thanks for taking the time to read it and I hope you like it. I’m happy to add more fics set in future settings or more at Beacon - maybe even some set before Beacon. Let me know what you think <3
It was a rustling that woke her. It was the continued
rustling that prevented her from falling back asleep.
Slowly, Weiss was pulled from her slumber and could suddenly
feel the chilly air where her arms were uncovered and hear the hum of the noise
machine in the distance. There was no movement around her, no more rustling and
for a moment, she was nearly consumed by the softness of the pillows and warmth
of her blankets.
However, just as she was about to slip away again, there was
a toss and a turn next to her and Weiss opened one eye into the darkness of their
It was late, no doubt in the middle of the night by how
tired she still felt. Only when she heard a heavy sigh next to her, did Weiss
know she was being not-so-subtly summoned by her bed partner.
Rolling over, she watched Ruby roll onto her back and kick her feet under the blankets with frustration.
“Ruby?” Weiss called out, her voice thick and scratchy. When
she tried to clear it, nothing changed. “S’wrong?”
Hello again! So this is nothing too special, just an idea I had after the finale and then it kinda turned into something that hit me after the RWBY cast was on Always Open. It’s White Rose and I know the last two have been them so promises that the next After Hours will be something else.
Anyway, also wanted to say that Foxtrot is moving along and will have an update sooner than later. I’m also in the process of outlining a new fic for this hiatus that I’m really excited about and it’ll be coming when Foxtrot is concluded.
Enough from me. Here’s some BFF Weiss/Ruby
Despite the fact that she was exhausted and her muscles hurt
from training and it was already past midnight – Ruby was still awake.
It had been an extremely emotional day. Not only had her
sister returned, but they’d run into Weiss as well. They reunions had been
everything Ruby imagined they would be. A lot of crying and hugging and a few
times here Yang yelled at her – then one time where Weiss did. Then more
hugging and Weiss crying and Yang teasing Ruby when she kissed Weiss on the
She didn’t know what all the fuss was about, it was only
because that’s how her dad would always help her stop crying. She wanted to do
the same for Weiss. Yang’s snickers and teasing didn’t even make sense but was
Though that annoyance couldn’t replace the relief at seeing
her partner and big sister again. To have three members of team RWBY together
was so wonderful, even though they all felt Blake’s absence.
Yang had promised they’d find her too, that they’d be
together again. Yang was so confident, so strong and smiling so much – it made
Ruby’s heart swell.
The emotion of the day had overwhelmed her, and even after
Yang went out with Qrow and Weiss retired to the room she rented out, Ruby was
still wired up and unable to sleep.
