Nora: -hooks her arm around Qrow’s- ALRIGHT, TEAM THUNDERBIRD OUT ON THE TOWN TO GET SOME ERRANDS DONE! Let’s get going, Mr. Branwen! I think I see the laundromat from here where our uniforms have been cleaned at!
Qrow: -weak, quiet ‘yaaaay’ escapes him- W-wait, what? Team What?
Nora: Electricity and bird! Thunderbird! -grins at him-
Qrow: …okay…why am I coming with you again, Nora?
Nora: Because you have the most money, right?! We’re getting some other supplies, too, and the rest of us are kind of broke at the moment.
Qrow: Ah, okay, fair enough.
Nora: So, Uncle Qrow, hows your wound?
Qrow: -stares at her- Fine. Why did you emphasis ‘uncle’? Why did you call me ‘uncle’. Don’t do that.
Nora: No reason. Hey, what was your relationship to Summer Rose? She was Ruby’s mom, right? You two were partners, I think she mentioned?
Qrow: -gulps- Uh…r-relationship? She…-continues to be dragged by Nora- Uh, yeah, she was Ruby’s mom, and uhh…my partner at Beacon…and…
Nora: -throws her head over her shoulder, quietly whispering- your wife?
Qrow: -stops dead in his tracks, bringing Nora to a halt and drags Nora and himself into a secluded alley- … -stares her down-
Nora: -smiles- I thought so. You and Ruby are awfully close. I mean, there’s something a little more deeper than on the surface.
Qrow: -panics- N-Nora…you…you don’t understand! You-You can’t–!
Nora: psssh, I’m not going to say anything. I just now became Ren’s girlfriend. You think I could say something that private to anyone I don’t know? Spoiler: I wouldn’t share that information with anyone anyway! Especially to…well, I’m assuming she doesn’t know.
Qrow: Nora. You have no idea how much danger that knowledge is. You. Can’t. Repeat it. Understand?
Nora: I completely understand. I just wanted confirmation that I was right.
Qrow: What about Ren? Jaune?! Do they–
Nora: HAHAHAHA! No! Hahahaha! No, no, no! Not at all!
Qrow: -exhales in relief- Kid, you’re going to give me a heart attack. -looks at his hands that are shaking and stuffs them in his pockets-
Nora: Don’t get so anxious. It’s okay, you can trust me! -smiles brightly- I love Ruby, and you seem really swell, too, so don’t worry! -grabs him and starts walking toward the laundromat again-
Nora: Did I know? It’s pretty obvious what your relationship is to me. Like I said…there’s a really strong, deep bond. It’s not a bond built on years…it’s familial. It’s obvious who her real dad is just by looking at you two. -turns her attitude to annoyed- Well, at least to SOME PEOPLE, REN AND JAUNE!
Qrow: …-chuckles- Ahhh…oh-okay. Let’s, uh…let’s just focus on what we need to get, okay? Uh…Nora.
Nora: -sings- Yeeeeees~
Qrow: Thanks, kid.
Nora: For what? Keeping it a secret?
Nora: …-giggles- You’re welcome! -swings his arm-
Qrow: OW OW OW STOP OW MY SIDE OW OW OW
You know what I’m super excited for in volume 5? My two favorite characters possibly interacting together!
Yes, my two favorite characters (who we’ve seen, I’m not counting Summer right now since we’ve yet to actually meet her yet) are Nora Valkyrie and Qrow Branwen!
Energetic energy child and drunk, sarcastic bird man would be an explosive combo, don’t you think? Actually, I think that Qrow would have a hard time handling Nora. She would exhaust him, no doubt, but he does well enough with kids so he’d probably just let her tug him around and deal with it.
Nora’s muscular and has abs, and would likely try to pressure Qrow, who is also muscular, to start working out together. Qrow would remind her how creepy that would look (on his part), and she would continue to not give any shits and do it anyway.
