heart of lies

tumblingxelian  asked:

What are your thoughts on the 'simple soul' idea, in regards to Ruby as a character,the theme, as well as in regards to Ozpin and Salem?

well it’s the idea of an honest soul, heart laid bare, no lies, very little is hidden below the surface, just steadfast in their ideals - Salem kinda sums it up in the volume 3 finale, the kind of person that can inspire hope and change

Ruby’s very idealistic and can drive people forward, it’s possible Ozpin is hoping to use her as a figurehead of sorts in that regard, while Salem would want to quash that to crush the hope she represents

I seriously like you please don’t fuck with my emotions
