caught in them streets

Team RWBY Headcanons
  • Ruby and Blake have a shared Manga collection.
  • Ruby unironically loves old horror and sci-fi movies, the cheesier the better.
  • Weiss watches those same movies just to ad-lib the lines (Giving them what Winter used to call ‘The Mystery Science Theatre 3000′ treatment).
  • However Weiss and Ruby both love cheesy music from the 90s and have been caught singing together (Imagine them singing this)
  • Yang is actually not as street smart as people think she is, being from Patch she still occasionally acts like a tourist in Vale.
  • Faunus rap is most definitely a thing and Blake listens to it.
  • Ruby has a lot of ‘Guns & Roses’ Merch, she doesn’t even listen to the band, Yang just buys it for her as a joke.
  • A lot of Yangs’ night time bike rides are actually her getting lost on the way somewhere and playing it off as intentional.
  • Blake usually reads on Yang’s bunk because it gets more sunlight than hers, she has been known to fall asleep curled up in a sunbeam.
  • Being from Atlas, Weiss Schnee has no concept of cold weather and can usually be found relaxing outside in anything less than a blizzard.
  • Ruby actually knows some really innapropriate jokes, she can just never tell them without blushing or cracking up.
  • Blake purrs in her sleep, Yang has videos.
  • Yang talks in her sleep….everyone has videos.
  • Weiss knows what Dust is in which chamber of Myrtenaster at all times, even when the weapon is in her locker.
  • Ruby has challenged Oobleck to a race before (Yang dared her to)

Marinette stepped out of the shop, the stillness of the city pressing into her ears. It was quiet and soft. Paris was usually a lot louder than this, but with the added snow, everything had been blanketed with what seemed to be pure peace.

The snowflakes swirling slowly and thickly in the air were quiet as well, not disturbed by a whistling wind, only floating at their own pace while the yellow light of street lamps caught them on the way towards the ground.

She took a few steps forward, the snow compounding beneath her weight with pleasant gentle noises, and her boots left their designs in the trail behind her. She held her paper bag close to her puffy coat, trying to silence any noise she might make from it, as well as keep the pastries inside as warm as they could be. In her coat pocket, pressed securely against her by her arm, was a thermos of hot chocolate. Its warmth seeped through the layers of her clothes and made the skin on her arm and stomach tingle a little.

The longer she walked down the deserted street, the colder she got, and she began to puff out air that would rise up to her face and relieve the numbness of her nose for a moment. By the time she reached her destination, her nose was running a little, and she had to pause for a moment to wipe it. She looked up into the pure white sky, masking the black night with snow and city lights, and she could now see the base of the Eiffel Tower in the distance before it disappeared up into the sky.

She turned the other way and faced the Notre Dame, and squinted into the snow to see the figure she knew she had seen from her balcony, sitting at the doors with their knees up to their chin. Marinette took careful steps forward, making sure to be as quiet as possible, and she was soon standing before the person she’d recognized from very far away.

She didn’t want to scare him, so she just stood there for a moment, swaying a little, before he looked up, surprise written on his face.

“Hey.” she said, nodding her head a little.

“…Hello.” he said back quietly, looking a little confused.

Marinette then sat down beside him on the steps, trying to ignore how the icy cold cement bit through her clothes and into her skin, knowing that it would soon become a little warmer.

“I saw you from my room… you looked like you might need a little company.” she said, smiling at him. He blinked at her, his face still a little blank. She carefully unwrapped her arms, taking out the thermos from her pocket and showing him the paper bag. She reached in and pulled out a warm pastry, handing it to him and warning him on the melted chocolate inside that might burn his tongue.

They sat in silence for a few minutes, eating their pastries and quietly handing the thermos of hot chocolate back and forth. Then Chat said quietly, not looking at her but at the snow floating quietly in front of them,

“Do you ever feel like you just want to keep walking and walking forever from your house… just so you can go somewhere else… and be someone else? Sometimes I do that. Today was the farthest I’ve gotten. It’s not really that impressive of a length though.”

Marinette rested her head onto her crossed arms and looked at him carefully until he continued, saying,

“I guess you probably don’t feel like that. I’ve met your parents before. I don’t know why you’d ever want to leave your house.”

She thought for a moment, chewing on her cheek gently before looking over at him and saying quietly,

“Well I left to come see you, didn’t I?”

He smiled at her sadly.

“Yeah but you’re going back.”

“…I know. But not yet.”

Her hand reached out and covered the top of his, and she squeezed it lightly, settling her head against his shoulder.

His head dropped down onto hers and she didn’t say anything when she felt a warm tear hit the top of her scalp and run down to the roots of her hair.

“Thank you.” he said, his voice thick.

“You’re welcome.”

I was in Barnes and Noble at The Grove in LA today, when I saw Dan and Phil coming up the stairs. My immediate reaction was OH MY GOD and I started to speed walk towards them. They disappeared into a door that said ‘Employees Only’ before I could get to them, so I started to thumb through the books around the door in order to not look like a stalker. A member of staff told us that they had left the building through a staff exit and I thought that I’d missed my chance to meet them, so was (as you’d expect) rather sad. I looked out the window hoping to see them and after a few tense minutes, lo and behold, they were walking down the street. I just said ‘THAT’S THEM’ and ran down the three flights of stairs to the street and ran after them. I caught up to them and said ‘Phil?’ in a voice which I was surprised he could hear, and he turned around. I must have been doing a fangirl face because he was like ‘Dan get over here’ before I even said anything. They started saying things like were like ‘Hello! Would you like a picture?’ So I got out my phone and they started laughing and asked if I had their case (I have the ‘phansplosion’ case) Dan said 'I have really long arms so I can take the pic’ and then he stopped and said 'Wait I’ve gotta fix my hair’ and they simultaneously said 'Fringe check!’ and laughed. They took 2 photos and were about to leave, but I said 'Would it be awkward if I ask for your signatures?’ (which is an awkward way of saying can I have your autograph) So they were like 'Yeah of course’ but then I couldn’t find a pen in my bag, and this really pretty lady who was with them let me borrow her pen. I put my shopping bag full of books down to get my journal out of my bag and it started to fall over, but Dan straightened it up while I was rootling through my bag. I got out my journal and some leaves started to fall out and I said 'Oh no I’m pressing leaves sorry’, and Phil asked where I was from and I replied England, and they said that they’d thought so. Dan asked if I had gone to Vidcon, but I said that I hadn’t because the tickets had sold out. He proceeded to tell me that he was glad that he’d met me then. Phil checked that he was spelling my name correctly and said 'So it’s Natasha with an a-s-h-a?’ and I said yeah. He signed it then gave it to Dan and they were laughing and saying 'Ah no we wrote Phil and Dan! It’s the wrong way round!’ We said our goodbyes and I returned the pen, and returned myself shaking to the bookshop. They were so wonderful to me and I haven’t stopped smiling since! Thank you danisnotonfire and amazingphil, I couldn’t have chosen any better people to look up to!

I met Dan and Phil today!
