I stayed after school today to do some homework, I’m aiming to get all my homework done before the start of the Easter holidays so I can focus on revision! I needed chocolate motivation tho (hence the mars bar 😂).

Have any other year 13’s confirmed their uni offers yet? Is anyone going to Lancaster or already studying there? I’m studying physical geography in Lancaster starting this September and would love to chat to others who are going???

“Despite everything you’ve lost, everything you could still lose, you chose to come out here.”

The moment we’ve all been waiting for this volume. And I can’t be any happier about how RT chose to show it to us.

I am so glad that Ruby has finally opened up to Jaune about her inner turmoil. And that both of them were able to comfort each other despite what is going on. Though not all of their pain is completely gone, a small burden has finally been lifted from both their shoulders and even with all that is happening, they have just a little more hope that things might not turn out to be so bad.

Jaune x Ruby (used to be Arkos, but P-Money’s dead), Ren x Nora, Neptune x Weiss, Sun x Blake.

Now for my crack pairings:

HAIL XIARKOS (Jaune x Yang x Pyrrha), Jaune x Yang, Jaune x Pyrrha (fell to noncanon after her death), Jaune x Nora, Ren x Pyrrha, Jaune x Weiss, Jaune x Blake- continues forever

Shipping with Dad
  • Me: it would be so cool if Weiss and Ruby got together. It would make me so happy.
  • Dad: nope.
  • Me: nope?
  • Dad: Ruby will go with Jaune since pyrrha is dead.
  • Me: But-
  • Dad: and Weiss will go with Blake.
  • Me: but Yang and Blake would be really cool toge-
  • Dad: nope. Cause Yang can't.... HANDle her.
  • Me: ...... Did you just-
  • Dad: oh come on that was purrrrrr-fect
  • Me: .... Stop...... Just stop...
RWBY V4E11 - What was the point of that last scene?

WARNING: HUGE SPOILERS AHEAD IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN RWBY VOLUME FOUR EPISODE ELEVEN: TAKING CONTROL.  I URGE YOU TO SEE THAT BEFORE YOU READ THIS.  THE ENTIRE EPISODE WAS ONE BIG REIGN OF HYPE AND TERROR.  IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THE EPISODE, FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS RWBY, DO NOT READ THIS.


Okay, now that that’s out of the way.  The last scene of Taking Control did not just tease the Nuckelavee Grimm again.  I think it showed us that the Nuckelavee has some kind of special ability.

Let’s go through the last scene again.  Ren and Nora are running through Kuroyuri, scared and intent on making sure Ruby and Jaune are okay.  They collapse outside an archway, out of breath and terrified.

The first thing on Ren’s face is relief, because he sees that they’re okay.

It seems that it’s only them in the clearing, and that they haven’t been hurt.  

“What are you guys doing here?” asks Ruby.

“Did you hear that noise?  What was that?” asks Jaune.

Ren starts to answer, but immediately sees something and slowly drops to his knees, his head hanging low, pure terror in his eyes as he repeats “No…” over and over again.

“Ren?!  What is it?” screams Ruby, off-screen.  Suddenly we hear hoof-beats and hissing noises, slow and menacing.

“Wait…do you guys hear that?” asks Jaune, off-screen.

“Ren…?” says Nora, fear building in her voice, off-screen.

And then…

We see it.  The Nuckelavee Grimm, with arrows from previous brawls still sticking out of its back, its eyes and mouth like fire inside it.  And then the episode ends.  Stop with the cliffhangers, RT!!!

This entire scene was just a little bit off to me.  Ren and Nora arrive, but directly after Jaune and Ruby speak, Ren sees the Grimm.  There’s even a part where his eyes dart around before he sees it.

So…um…where is it?

In the shot where we see the Nuckelavee, it looks like it’s close enough for Ren to see the details on its face…and I say Ren because it was obvious that he saw it.  Everyone else was all “What are you doing here” and “What’s going on”.  None of them ever mentioned seeing it.

Is Ren the only one that can see the Nuckelavee?

They could definitely hear it; Jaune mentioned hearing the hissing and clopping.  But none of them seemed really scared.  And here’s another thing to note: Every time the camera zoomed in on Ren, everyone else was heard off-screen. 

Which makes me wonder if Ruby, Jaune, and Qrow are even there to begin with.  Is this an illusion cast by the Nuckelavee?  What is Ren really seeing?

What the hell is going on?

Some sketch dumps and a progress report on this shizz.

I have school so I could make this bit by bit.

Ruby’s emblem is really tedious to make even with a reference, but I somehow did it and I also put the Rose on the hilt.

I don’t know what to name the sword, but I see that in-game as a magic sword like the Levin Sword, but the ranged application will be like Leo’s Brynhildr with rose thorns and petals.

Here’s more to expect.

Cordelia = Pyrrha (HAHAHAHAHAH! Good for you if you know that reference.)

Sully = Nora

Stahl = Ren

Maribelle/Sumia/ or Fredrick substitute? = Weiss

 Vaike = Yang?

Ricken = Oscar

Panne = Velvet

Say’ri = Blake

Lon’qu/Yen’fay = Adam

You guys could suggest more. Just PM me or comment it.
