i will be strong this winter

anonymous asked:

Yeah i'm pretty sure v5 will be my favourite too :) what are your predictions?

Biggest things I want in V5 are strong Winter/Weiss moments. RWBY reunion and RWBY/JNR enrolling at Haven Academy. 


Thursday press conference, Qatar

“As always, the level is very high. This year, as you said also more. You can have 7-8 riders that start for try to win races, and try to fight for the championship - this is great. We have to try to stay in that group. 

Coming from a quite difficult winter season, I was never very strong; we struggle a bit to find the right feeling. So we have to work, we have to improve, but from tomorrow start another long season, and I hope to be strong and competitive.”

Name: Rachel

Nicknames: Rach? Sometimes? Most people just use my name, tbh

Zodiac sign: Gemini 

Height: 5′3″


Nationality: American

Favorite fruit: cherries, preferably black or the white rainier cherries

Favorite season: Fall or the very first part of winter. Or the end of winter, when it gets rainy and gray. Basically I just hate summer :D

Favorite book: I love The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, East by Edith Patou, and Enthusiasm by Polly Shulman. And The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne. It’s probably time for me to start reading some actual books again, huh? :P These are all from High School and College.

Favorite flower: Daisies! They’re so happy

Favorite scent: I’m pregnant right now so everything smells too strong and terrible. Usually I have little to no sense of smell, so having all of the scents IN MY FACE is mildly unpleasant. But a couple weeks ago my brother-in-law was cooking eggs with seasoning salt in them and that smelled like the best thing ever? I don’t know what to say. I have a weird relationship with smells.

Favorite color: Yellow! And Green.

Favorite animal: PANDA. I went to the San Diego Zoo when I was young and they had a new baby panda just born, and I fell in love. Haven’t fallen out since. I hold a soft spot, though, for manatees.  

Coffee, tea, or hot cocoa: Hot cocoa. I have a special recipe book full of fun varieties, and I make my own recipes frequently as well. I LOVE IT. But tea will do if I’m not in the mood for a sugar overload.

Average sleep hours: 8 or 9. Though I long for the days when my sleep can be, once more, in the double digits. Seriously. I love to sleep. But not nap. 

Cat or dog person: I’m a lazy person, so cats are easier, but I love the idea of having a puppy best friend. Someday I will own an adopted greyhound. 

Favorite fictional character: My only criteria here is good hair and a sad background. See also: Thranduil, Kylo Ren, Leah Clearwater, Luna Lovegood, Audrey Jensen, etc.

Number of blankets you sleep with: A top sheet, thin blanket and comforter. And most of the time I throw them off because pregnancy makes me a literal human heater. 

Dream trip: I really want to make it to Louisiana someday, and I want to go to France. Or back to England. But I’ve been watching The Fall and now I wanna go to Ireland really badly. Or India. India for sure. 

Blog created: coming up on three years ago now? 

Number of followers: 696, though I’m sure 400 of them are bots and the rest of them are confused or inactive. There’s no way I have that many actual people who like me enough to put up with my weird self.  

I will tag….not 20 people because like I said, I’m pretty sure there are only like 5 of my followers who even like me. Feel free to ignore me and/or berate me over messaging or ask.

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
