“All morons hate it when you call them a moron.”
“Certain things, they should stay the way they are. You ought to be able to stick them in one of those big glass cases and just leave them alone.”
“Don't ever tell anybody anything. If you do, you start missing everybody."
"Mothers are all slightly insane."
"I like it when somebody gets excited about something. It's nice."
"People never notice anything."
“I don't exactly know what I mean by that, but I mean it."
"I can be quite sarcastic when I'm in the mood."
"People always clap for the wrong reasons."
"What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it."
"I can't explain what I mean. And even if I could, I'm not sure I'd feel like it."
“I don't even know what I was running for - I guess I just felt like it."
Oscar could describe Qrow Branwen’s training sessions in one word: HELL.
The former farm boy collapsed onto the bed in the room he shared with Qrow (Ruby and the others having their own room to share), feeling as if his bruises had bruises and any feeling he had of his legs evaporated as soon as he hit the mattress.
The drunken man simply waved the kid off as he headed towards the door. “I’m off to get a drink. Try not to die or throw up on the carpeting while I’m gone.”
Oscar didn’t even see the man leave, simply content to hear the door shut behind him.
Which left him to groan on his own. “I HATE him!”
Now, you don’t mean that. Or at least aside from Ozpin in his head.
“Yes I do, and I’m pretty sure its mutual considering the day I just had! And everything up until now.”
Well, I won’t deny that there isn’t truth in that. The problem is you’re not originally a fighter and Qrow has practically fought his whole life just to stay alive. And with you as my successor and the short amount time we have, it’s just a frustrating situation.
“Yeah, well, I’m not you.”
He felt a kind of weary mental acknowledgement from the old man in his mind. No, you’re not. You’re your own person. And Qrow knows that, even if he doesn’t like to admit it.
Oscar sighed. leaning back into the mattress. “I wonder….”
Then there’s how you are with Jaune, Ren, Nora, and especially Ruby.
“Yeah, and I thought my Aunt was protective of me when I was younger. Kind of made it hard to make friends.” A twinge of regret entered his mind as he wondered how she was doing with him gone. She must be frantic.
It’s…not quite that simple.
Oscar would sat up if he had the energy so he only asked further. “What do you mean?”
I can’t claim to know everything that goes on in Qrow’s mind, but afterknowing him many years I can venture a guess. When he looks at you, he sees a living reminder of his failures and his regrets.
Oscar’s eyes blinked a few times in confusion. “I don’t understand.”
You’ve seen enough of my memories that I don’t think I need to explain everything, so I’ll just give you what you need to know presently. Calling Team STRQ’s current situation complicated is an understatement to say the least. Summer was the one who really kept those three together and when she died, anything that could have been fixed was irreparably broken. If not for Yang and Ruby, I’m pretty sure at least one of those three would be dead by another’s hands by now.
Oscar grimaced. "Okay, that’s kind of messed up, but that doesn’t explain anything.“
You’ve gotten along pretty well with Jaune, Ren, and Nora; Jaune especially. Ruby is only a temporary member for them, I get the feeling she’ll reunite with her team soon enough. But you…you click with them very well, it’s like you four are a team already. I think Qrow sees you four and it makes him miss what he once had.
Oscar sighed a bit, his aches not as bad as it was a few minutes ago. "Okay….I can kind of understand that.”
Then there’s your obvious feelings for Miss Rose.
“I thought you disapproved.”
I still do, but I can’t do anything about how you feel for her. Besides, I….technically have no right to judge you in regards to loving someone.
“Another memory of yours you're suppressing from me?”
That is another story for another day. The point is you and Ruby have very strong feelings for each other and in any other circumstances I would have bet on you two.
An incredulous tone crept into the young man’s voice as he answered. “I still can’t believe you and the other teachers at Beacon have a betting pool on whether students will end up together or not.”
I have won quite a bit of Lien because of that pool, but that's off topic. To make a long explanation very short, let’s just say you’re not the only person to fall very hard and very fast for someone with a very noticeable cloak and pretty silver eyes.
It took about five seconds for that sentence to sink in. “Oh.”
Then it really snapped in Oscar’s mind as past memories of Qrow came up. “OHHH….so wait, you mean…?’
Yes, though just to be clear if you say anythingabout it, Qrow really WILL try to kill you. Or at least find a way for you to never speak again. Especially to Ruby.
"GREAT. Why tell me all this?”
I just don’t want you to hate Qrow for something that isn’t either of your faults. It’s not fair to judge someone entirely without knowing the full story.
Oscar sighed. “I guess you might be right. Doesn’t mean I’m happy with all these bruises.”
A knock on the door cut off any response Ozpin might have made. Feeling less sore, Oscar got up from the bed and opened the door to find Ren and Nora standing there, arms full with sugary snacks and drinks. “Oh hey guys, what’s up?”
Nora cheerily answered. “Well, we were kind of flipping around the channels earlier and apparently there’s this awesome action adventure romance about to come on and we wanted to know if you wanted to watch it with us. You know, kind of a break from your training.”
Ren calmly spoke then. “According to Ruby and Jaune, it’s a must see. Unless of course, you’d rather not…”
Oscar shook his head, a smile coming to his face. “Sounds cool. I could use something to get my mind off it all for a while. Besides, Qrow went out and probably won’t be back until tomorrow so I’m all up for hanging out with you guys.”
Nora exclaimed happily. “Great! Let’s go then!”
The hyper girl turned to walk fastly back to her room while Ren and Oscar followed behind her with a smile, the farm boy also smiling inwardly at these brief normal interactions without the fate of the world on his shoulders.
Wow, this was something I didn’t expect to do again. I do most of my these kind of musings of FanFiction.Net. Not really a tumblr user. Not that good of an ending though.
Oscar as the newest member of Team JNPR. YES. Also, am a fan of Summer x Qrow. And Ozpin has secrets.
I’ve had more than a few ideas on what my next big story should be involving RWBY. Maybe I’ll post them another day.
Thinking about you with other people scares me. Being alone with my thoughts scares me. Being without you scares me. Hearing you say you don’t think we’ll get back together scares me. Not knowing or understanding anything scares me, but knowing too much scares me even more.
The scariest thing of all is what my anxiety is doing to me.

Hello! It's your daughter Maketh! I just wanted to say that I hope you're having fun on Coruscant! I miss you already!
Hi, it's Maketh again, just wanted to say that I still miss you, and I still hope you're doing well!
Hi, Mom, so remember those disruptors you wanted me to pick up from down the street? Well, I went to do that, but then these people came and tricked me and stole them from me! It was really scary, and they...please don't be mad.
Hi, Mom, don't worry about anything, I've got a friend staying over, he says he'll help me, you keep enjoying your trip, I'm sorry I worried you! Ignore that last message!
Hello, yes, it's me again...remember how I said that I was having a friend over to help me? Well, now he's invited his friend over, too, and so I think we've got this, you keep enjoying Coruscant, hope you're as excited for Empire Day as we are, we're getting everything cleaned up!
I hope you really enjoyed your Empire Day, it's going really well here...*explosion noise*...lots of fireworks! Don't worry about us, Mom...but are you coming home soon? I'd really like to know...I miss you...
Okay, no really, Mom, where are you? You were supposed to be home last week! Why aren't you here? Can you please call?
Moooooooom, the landlord's here, and he was really mad at me because he said I've been messing the place up, and he yelled at me, and he yelled at my friend, and my friend's friend didn't stand up for me, and I just feel like you would be much better at dealing with these sorts of things because you're just so good at dealing with these things, I mean it's YOUR lease, you're the one who owns this place, I'm technically a dependent, and the landlord's really scary, we're almost out of food, can you please come home soon, I'm starting to be really scared, where are you?
MOM WHERE ARE YOU PEOPLE ARE DYING MOM PLEASE CALL ME BACK I THINK THE LANDLORD'S ABOUT TO CUT THE *static*
I still find it weird that when Mona was in Radley and Hanna and Aria snuck in to look for answers and talk to Mona (3x07), Mona says 3 “coded messages” to them:
No One To Save Ali From Evil - NOT SAFE
Maya’s Away Sleeping Sweet, Until Garrett’s All Rosy Count On Me - massugar.com (maya’s website)
And the the last one that Mona kept repeating:
Miss Aria You’re A Killer, Not Ezra’s Wife - MAYA KNEW
Hanna and Aria went back to Spencer and Emily and only told them or conveiniently “remembered” the first two. And then it was never mentioned again. Why is that? Why wasn’t the last one mentioned? That seems really suspicious to me, and I think it was on purpose. I believe it could be another clue as to Aria being A (or Uber A?). And did you see Aria’s face when Mona was saying that? She looked guilty as hell.
PLUS if you look at the first half of the second riddle, “Maya’s Away Sleeping Sweet” looks like it indicates she’s actually fine, she’s not dead, she’s just hiding (oh hi again, foreshadowing, old friend).
But I just find it so strange that it was never brought up again, the girls never said anything about it, and they only talked about the other two riddles.
MAYA KNEW makes me think maybe she knew about Charles?! Or Aria being involved? That’s why she was killed? (or potentially hiding away)? What do you guys think?!
I have the biggest crush on you and I don’t know what to do about it. So I just sit there and admire you from afar, like a love-struck idiot. It’s as if I’ve lost all cognitive ability to formulate any words to say anything to you. You leave me speechless.
-I cannot function. I cannot move. I am just there, succumbed to paralysis at your presence.
