Of course now I’m thinking about Qrow and Raven’s shapeshifting abilities and I can’t help but wonder, is it Qrow or Raven who intervenes in the Red trailer?
I’ve slowed down the scene to make it easier to see but just in case, here’s the screencap too:
Two hours ago I would have said it was absolutely Qrow. He’s the one who is canonically established as Ozpin’s informant, after all. We can reasonably assume that he’s the crow/raven we see in the trailers (excluding the White trailer) following the girls around.
However, after thinking about the death premonition theory for Raven/Qrow, I noticed that each time that Qrow conveniently shows up to rescue someone in the show, he does it in his human form. He’s never seen attacking in his bird form. Maybe he isn’t powerful enough to attack in that form, or maybe it’s just not his style. Either way, we don’t see him taking action as a bird.
But you know who we do see intervening in bird form?
I mean, she does also attack Neo as a human, but maybe she wouldn’t have been able to get away with bird form in that enclosed space, or maybe she stays a raven so that Yang doesn’t know she’s around, but this one time she risked it thinking Yang was unconscious.
Also, the crow/raven in the Red trailer seems to disappear entirely after a flash of black/purple/red, almost as though it teleported away, rather than flew away. And we do know Raven uses mysterious portals.
Anyways, my point is that maybe it was actually not Qrow, but Raven who was helping Ruby out in the Red trailer.
Wouldn’t that be something.
Side note: Ruby obviously realized that something was exploding in front of her face because she back-flipped away from it. I wonder if she has any clue what it was that caused it, or if she even found it odd that a Beowolf literally exploded.
I remember seeing this trailer for the first time and having to check it was on the right channel since Roosterteeth never made anything like this before xD. Fast forward years later and RWBY’s still one of the main reasons im pursue'ing art as a serious career.
Synopsis: After Yoongi suffers a tragic death, he watches how his loved ones suffer because of his absence. He makes a deal with Death himself; he has one year to prepare his beloved ones for his inevitable death.
- January 20th 10:35 p.m-
Yoongi doesn’t look at you, all he does is tighten his grip around the steering wheel and step on the gas petal. Instinctively, your hands grab onto the side of your seat, bracing yourself for the violent brakes and sudden accelerations of the car. You don’t understand why he’s driving so fast considering he knows how much you dislike it. After the car accident when you were a teenager involving all of your family you had grown traumatized of being in cars. Before today he would be considerate about that fear and would refrain from even going five miles over the designated speed limit. Today was a different story.
“Slow down,” you do a horrible job of hiding the fear laced in your voice. Through the corner of your eye, you see Yoongi inhaling and exhaling violently. The vein of the side of his neck is pulsing, beneath the thin level of skin you can see the muscles in his jaw flex as he continues to grind his teeth.
