The Bullhead is uncomfortably cramped, and the ride is taken in total silence. Weiss is pouting at you taking someone else’s side, and you’re content to let her. After Sun’s reminder of how your family is seen in the wider world, outside of Atlas and outside of those who knew you at Beacon, you’ve been taken by a melancholic mood that you don’t feel discussion will lift.The march back to the dorm room is equally tense, and there is no one in the halls to notice it. Everyone must be getting ready for bed, and classes tomorrow. The trip to your door feels longer than usual, and the only distraction is the sound of twin footsteps echoing through dark halls. You feel an urge to sigh with relief when you finally reach and unlock the door, but you can’t bring yourself to summon the energy for it.Penny’s head snaps towards the two of you as you enter, and Blake peers over her text book, looking curiously. “You are back from your time with Winter!” Penny states with enthusiasm and a warm smile, “Did you enjoy yourselves?” You can feel your chest rumble with an unreleased groan as Weiss takes the opportunity to finally vent.“Oh, we had a great time. We stopped by the docks, browsed a bit, and Whitaker made a new friend!” She tears the word from gritted teeth, and the other girls take this as the signal things did not go as planned. Penny shrinks in on herself, her smile rapidly losing confidence, while Blake pulls book up further and prepares to drown your sister out.(CONTINUED)
>>1734343“Maybe next time the two of you hang out, you can destroy public property, or get into a police chase!” The implications that you had befriended a criminal make Penny gasps in shock and the noise spurs you to defend yourself.“He wasn’t doing anything!” It had been a while since you and Weiss had a real shouting match, and the building pressure at the base of your skull was warning you that this could become one very quickly.“He ran away from a police officer!” Weiss’s voice is shrill, and she’s wrong. That’s what sticks out at you the most. Not her tone, or aggressive stance, but that she was simply wrong. You can’t stop yourself from correcting her even if you wanted to.“He was running away from us!” Your shout had carried more than volume. Even you could hear the slight strain in your voice, and the argument ends before it can truly begin. Weiss knows you well enough to see how bothered you are by your own words, and you answer before she can ask, “He said so himself, ‘Every Faunus would have run from the Schnees.’”Weiss begins to retort, but you can’t make out the first syllable before Blake surprises both of you with an interruption, “Why would he say something like that?” You meet her eyes and notice that she’s set the book aside, and seems to be paying an intense amount of interest to the scene before her. You give a short summary of the events, skipping over any details that don’t directly relate to Sun, and when you’re finished, Blake hums in a thoughtful manner.A few moments of silence pass and you notice that with the argument’s momentum halted, Weiss has entirely lost the mood to fight over it. You aren’t sure it’s over entirely, but it’s the last you’ll hear from Weiss tonight. You move to take a seat at your own desk, but Blake interrupts once again, “Whitaker? Can I talk to you? Alone?”You can’t think of a reason to deny her (actually, you can think of plenty, but no good ones), so you accept. She leads you back out of the dorm and, eventually, outside. There isn’t a soul around you, but despite that, Blake whispers her question, “Why did you help him? You skipped that part of the story.” You aren’t sure why this conversation had to happen in secret, but you answer…>A) With refusal. “I’ve got my reasons, okay?”>B) For your family. “I don’t want anyone to be afraid of us anymore.”>C) With your morals. “It was wrong to go after him. We weren’t involved, and we didn’t have the right to become involved.”>D) With confusion. “I’m not sure. I just… Followed my gut feeling.”
>>1734348>B) For your family. “I don’t want anyone to be afraid of us anymore.”
>>1734348Reminder that Neo is a shit waifu, Penny is for imouto, and we need to build more social links>B) For your family. “I don’t want anyone to be afraid of us anymore.”>C) With your morals. “It was wrong to go after him. We weren’t involved, and we didn’t have the right to become involved.”Whynotboth?.jpg
>>1734348>C) With your morals. “It was wrong to go after him. We weren’t involved, and we didn’t have the right to become involved.”Honestly, this was my reason for voting. He clearly bolted because he saw us, Winter and Weiss chased him because he ran.The situation was entirely too circular to be fair.
>>1734348> C) MoralsWe are a good guy.
>>1734348>C) With your morals. “It was wrong to go after him. We weren’t involved, and we didn’t have the right to become involved.”
>>1734348>B) For your family. "I don't want anyone to be afraid of us anymore."
>>1734348>>B) For your family. “I don’t want anyone to be afraid of us anymore.”>>C) With your morals. “It was wrong to go after him. We weren’t involved, and we didn’t have the right to become involved.”
>>1734348>B) For your family. “I don’t want anyone to be afraid of us anymore.”Considering Whitaker is the diplomatic emotional health guy for his family and to an extent his friends, he'd probably take the situation personally. He's a sensitive guy, though he'd really prefer it if the White Fang would stop trying to assassinate them.
>>1734348>B) For your family. “I don’t want anyone to be afraid of us anymore.”>C) With your morals. “It was wrong to go after him. We weren’t involved, and we didn’t have the right to become involved.”
>>1734348>>C) With your morals. “It was wrong to go after him. We weren’t involved, and we didn’t have the right to become involved.”
>>1734357Admittedly, there's a strong helping of B on the side, but that's not precisely the way I'd put it. It's not so much "for the family" as "for the family's own good". It's not about how people react to the Schnees, but the reasons why people feel that way.
>>1734348>D) With confusion. “I’m not sure. I just… Followed my gut feeling.”
>>1734348>>B) For your family's own good. “I don’t want anyone to be afraid of us anymore.”>>C) With your morals. “It was wrong to go after him. We weren’t involved, and we didn’t have the right to become involved.”

>>1734441personally i like penny compared to blake o3o
>>1734513I'm telling you guys, harem route.
>>1734513Blake for life. Where else would you get to grope fluffy ears?
>>1734524Penny during a pet play session?
>>1734524> Velvet> Neon> Any girl during kink stuff> Zwei> Blake's Mom> GASTON> Sun's tail if it counts.Blake objectively worse than any of those.
>>1734523Haremfag pls go.
>>1734531> Blake's Momunder> NeonShit taste
>>1734540Was in no particular order Limeanon.
>>1734531Man, who wouldnt want to fluff Zwei, he's such a good dog.
>>1734531No one has such fluffy ears like Gaston!
Diplomatic Proposal from the trenches of the discord Waifu War:Prom Treaty:This treaty states that all waifu affiliation will be dropped for this one event. Whittaker shall dance with every girl, waifu prospect or no. He shall rotate around the minor and major characters for 1-2 posts each. None is given more time than any other. This way we get nice interaction with underappreciated girls, whilst also getting some nice waifu time for everyone. Everyone comes out happy and no bile or vitirol is shed. This way, everyone enjoys prom both in Remnant and irl.
>>1734552i want to dance with reese
>>1734532Anti-Haremfags: Worse than their enemy>>1734552Sounds like a semi-good idea technophile
>>1734557All are welcome into our prom ceasefire.>>1734560It is the only way to stop the quest from becoming the later stages of Naruto Quest desu.
>>1734552Agreed, we wouldn't survive otherwise.
>>1734552I will agree with this. However, I suggest we also have a final dance of the night. A slow dance. After getting a feel for all the girls, may the best waifu win.
>>1734563>Naruto QuestOh god please no
>>1734571That defeats the whole point of avoiding a waifu war.
>>1734575the fuck happened in Naruto Quest?
>>1734577But the waifu wars need a winner. I think this is a better opportunity to give every waifu a chance. If it were without anything like this, it would just be Penny or Blake (mostly penny), and we wouldn't get a taste of every waifu. This would allow everyone to get a taste, while still having a victor.
>>1734552Sounds fair. All must be danced with, friends, sisters and waifus.>>1734581Unpleasantness. Just... either don't ask, or read through it yourself if you must know. I'd recommend the first. It's better that way.
>>1734600Don't break the treaty.We can leave it for the next event after the dance, when drama is happening.>>1734601A Schnee understands how important the formal dance is in terms of social standings and s links.
>>1734604I'm sure this'll end with everyone lusting after us. Even some boys like Ren
>>1734604Is there an event after the dance? I thought after that it was just the tournament, then shit gets real.I just want to slow dance with penny before she dies
>>1734601Would it help if I said please?
>>1734610>to slow dance with pennyExcellent taste my friend->before she diesWe're gonna prevent that. I will shadow run everything so that won't happen.
>>1734615The writer actually had the balls to write what happens if you try to harem two girls in a semi realistic social setting.Then the anons decided to mind merge with the loser of the waifu war, to show how much MC loved her.The quest in those 10 threads-ish.Holy shit, it nearly tore /tg/ apart.
>>1734610She doesn't have to die Anon
>>1734608Yeah, it doesn't help that Whit has developed into a popular nice guy. If he was a cunt and pissed off most of his classmates, then the lessened amount of viable waifus would make things easier.
>>1734623Oh fuck the ninshu thing
>>1734622>Excellent taste my friend-Penny is a shit waifu, only for imouto
>>1734633Lets at least for now agree that we will try to make sure she doesent die o3o.
>>1734633I disagree. Penny is a high tier waifu.>Kind>Tries to bake>All her foods taste poor because she can't taste anything>Eat them anyways to make her feel goodThe potential for cute is endless!
>>1734610We could hang around the festival area for a bit before and during tournament. That'd be a good time to talk to people.Who knows, maybe we'll meet some nice foreign girls who are over for the tournament. I hear Mistal ladies are interesting.
>>1734636I agree on not letting her die>>1734639She's an imouto anon, the potential for cute is still there. It's not gonna kill us to imouto her, besides I want Ironwood to not steal our jizz
I want to fondle Yang's yangs
>>1734656But I also want the emotional pain on whitaker of his waifu dying . You can't get that with an imouto.>>1734657This is also an option I support.
>>1734674>that spoilerShame on you.
>>1734674>>1734656>>1734681Suffering is the best character arc.
>>1734348There’s some internal debate. You want to tell her several things, but your thoughts jumble up, rushing to explain things you aren’t entirely sure you know Blake well enough to tell. Eventually, you can divide your emotions from the events tonight into clear halves, before and after. Before you knew his name, you knew that what your sisters were doing was immoral. After, you knew that what you had done had reinforced a desire you and Weiss have shared since you first learned of your grandfather. You aren’t sure which could be considered “more important,” so instead you decide to share both.“It was wrong to go after him. We weren’t involved, and we didn’t have the right to become involved.” There are a few moments while Blake digests the explanation, and when you don’t continue, she asks, “Is that all? I mean, it’s… A good thing. I can respect that, it just… Feels like there’s more to it than that.”“There is something else, I’m just not sure how to say it…” Blake’s mouth twitches towards a smile and she gently encourages you, “It’s probably best to just spit it out.” You can see the reason in that, so you give it a try.“I don’t want anyone to be afraid of us anymore. The Schnee name used to mean something more than a brand and a beating.” You had done your best to avoid learning the details of how your father ran his business, but you still knew at least a few facts that made your stomach twist uncomfortably. The symbol you and Weiss wore on your backs were more often featured in the destruction of peace rather than the maintenance of it, and every Schnee born was painfully aware of that fact.Your reasons seem to cause Blake some sort of discomfort. She’s chewing on her lip and looking towards the ground, eyes unfocused as she retreats internally. “What?” you ask, and she jumps awake a bit. The two of you hold eye contact for a moment or two before Blake runs a hand through her hair and sighs, “This is a bad idea...”(CONTINUED)
>>1734707>Some FF14 dude.>Not SNow Ville-SCHNEE
>>1734712“What’s a bad idea?” There’s a sensation not unlike whiplash as the mood changes and Blake begins to nervously pace a bit as you stare on in hopeless confusion. She doesn’t answer you, and you try again.“Blake? You’re starting to worry me.” She seems to remember your presence and stops, faces you, and visibly collects herself with a deep breath.“Do you swear? That’s why you helped him?” There’s a hint of emotion you can’t quite place. Perhaps a nervous confusion? Either way, Blake is wound up, and you really meant every word, so it isn’t difficult to reaffirm.“I swear.” You’re certain it was the right thing to say, but Blake seems increasingly nervous despite it.“Alright. And, what I’m about to tell you, you promise not to tell anyone else? Not even Weiss?” If anything, the tension re-establishing itself makes answering her even easier, “Yes.” Blake’s hands slowly move towards the sides of her head as she speaks.“This is… Very surprising, for me, but…” She swallows to clear the tightness in her throat and he hands move even further upwards, towards the bow you had never seen her without.“I trust you.” Blake’s hands move with practiced ease, and the ribbon pulls away, revealing two black cat ears.>A) You had no idea, but after Penny’s secret, it’s hard to be shocked. “Was… Was that it?”>B) Question her. “Why hide it from us? Just because of my family?”>C) Does everyone on this team keep secrets from you?! “Are you serious?! What else don’t I know about?!”
>>1734718>A) You had no idea, but after Penny’s secret, it’s hard to be shocked. “Was… Was that it?”>B) Question her. “Why hide it from us? Just because of my family?”>>1734707You tell that to the character her/himself
>>1734718>A) You had no idea, but after Penny’s secret, it’s hard to be shocked. “Was… Was that it?”I mean if we can come to terms with one of our team mates being a living robot we can come to terms with someone being a faunus.
>>1734718I'd say somewhere between A and B
>>1734718>B) Question her. “Why hide it from us? Just because of my family?”A feels like it'd come off as really dismissive.
>>1734718>>A) You had no idea, but after Penny’s secret, it’s hard to be shocked. “Was… Was that it?”"I had my thoughts when we were talking about the White Fang, but still, nice to know."
>>1734718>>A) You had no idea, but after Penny’s secret, it’s hard to be shocked. “Was… Was that it?”After finding out we have Pinnochio on our team, a catgirl isn't really that big of a shock. Not to mention we'd notice how invested Blake was in the state of society.
>>1734718>A) You had no idea, but after Penny's secret, it's hard to be shocked. "Was... Was that it?"
>>1734718>A) You had no idea, but after Penny’s secret, it’s hard to be shocked. “Was… Was that it?”I mean let's be honest, this is far from the weirdest thing.
>>1734718>A) You had no idea, but after Penny’s secret, it’s hard to be shocked. “Was… Was that it?”
>>1734718>A) You had no idea, but after Penny’s secret, it’s hard to be shocked. “Was… Was that it?”>B) Question her. “Why hide it from us? Just because of my family?”I want to specify that I don't want the questioning to come off as accusatory
>>1734718>A) You had no idea, but after Penny’s secret, it’s hard to be shocked. “Was… Was that it?”>B) Question her. “Why hide it from us? Just because of my family?”
>>1734718>>A) You had no idea, but after Penny’s secret, it’s hard to be shocked. “Was… Was that it?”Now only Weiss has to reveal her darkest secret.
>>1734718>>B) Question her. “Why hide it from us? Just because of my family?”
>>1734718>>A) You had no idea, but after Penny’s secret, it’s hard to be shocked. “Was… Was that it?”
>D Touch fluffy ears
>>1734718>>C) Does everyone on this team keep secrets from you?! “Are you serious?! What else don’t I know about?!”
>>1734718>A) You had no idea, but after Penny’s secret, it’s hard to be shocked. “Was… Was that it?”>B) Question her. “Why hide it from us? Just because of my family?”TO be honest, Whit doesn't seem the type to be surprised at this. Now, if Blake told him she used to be a member of White Fang, then it'd be different.
>>1734718> A&> B
>>1734718>A) You had no idea, but after Penny’s secret, it’s hard to be shocked. “Was… Was that it?”>B) Question her. “Why hide it from us? Just because of my family?”Time for "backstory" on Blake.
>>1734756Also >B) Question her. “Why hide it from us? Just because of my family?”
>>1734758You know what? This too, any other anon wanna do this?
>>1734725To be fair, B feels a little accusatory and Whit hasn't attached much importance to what people's ears look like.
>>1734765Wonder what Weiss' secret is?
>>1734791>"Whitaker... I don't have a twin..."
>>1734791>She's actually in love with Whitaker
>>1734791She was obviously behind the White Fang attacks on us
>>1734718>>B) Question her. “Why hide it from us? Just because of my family?”Feels the most in-character.
>>1734791She wants a divorce
>>1734791She wants our twin brother dick.
>>1734791I'm a boy
>>1734791She can believe it's not butter.

>>1734849Could have been better, but especially if she drops the White Fang bombshell "barely contained but genuinely trying" makes a lot of sense in context.
>>1734887It might be better for her to hold back the white fang confession right now.

Really sorry about the slow update you guys, dinner caught me right in the middle of writing! It's almost ready to go, just a little while longer!
>>1735099No worries, always willing to wait for quality updates.
>>1734718The air is still as you take in the full implication of what you see. Everything you had seen begins to fall into place. Blake’s initial distrust of you and Weiss, the confrontation over the White Fang, her reaction to the fact you defended Sun. It all comes together in an obvious picture that you curse yourself for not putting together sooner, but there’s one thing you’re missing. One final piece of the puzzle, one last question to ask.“Was… Was that it?” You can’t help it. After the shock of discovering artificial life on your team, you simply cannot summon the sensation of surprise. A Faunus was fairly tame in comparison. Of course, Blake didn’t know that, so she seems shocked at your casual dismissal. Her eyebrows raise and eyes widen, but you focus on her revealed ears as they stand straight up from their formerly relaxed position.“‘Is that it…?’” she mimics. “You mean this doesn’t surprise you? You KNEW?!” Your hands reflexively begin to pull upwards to mime placation at your teammate, but the lack of any heat in her exclamation stops them. You take a moment to consider your words carefully before you explain, “No, I had no idea. I’m just not sure why it was such a big a secret.” Blake considers it for a moment, and her expression relaxes to a more reserved one.“You already know. ‘Every Faunus would run from the Schnees,’ right? Well, it’s not just your family we worry about. There are humans everywhere who don’t accept us. I hide who I am because I don’t want to be afraid of… Whatever people might do. Or say.”“And with two Schnees on your team, you didn’t think you could let your guard down for even a moment, right?” Blake nods at your assessment, and the heavy feeling from earlier returns. Your family name now officially hung over every member of your team, a single-word threat that could expose Penny, take you and your sister’s freedom or strike fear into the hearts of Blake’s entire species.“Well… For what it’s worth, I am glad you told me.” There didn’t seem anything else to say, but it seems to be enough to draw a small, sad smile out of Blake.“I am too.”(CONTINUED)
>>1735165The night passed uneventfully after Blake’s confession, leaving you with nothing to look forward to but the next day and the classes that would follow. Your morning courses are uninspiring, the same book work you had been doing for weeks, but your first mid-day class was one of the more exciting.Dueling. Ms. Goodwitch’s arena had been witness to several spectacular matches and what felt like hundreds of less involving, yet still informative bouts. You had entered yourself a few times. You had tasted victory and defeat in the same manner that all the other students had (with the obvious exception of Pyrrha), but no matter the outcome, the act itself was supremely satisfying.Today, you had been called to face an individual you had yet to test your mettle against: Yang Xiao Long. Despite the mission the two of you had undertaken, as well as her general temperament, you had never seen her fight outside of this room. What you had seen inside this room gave you some pause. Yang was a relentless force, constantly pressing her opponent into a defensive position with wild punches that always seem to connect, which your slower-to-activate semblance would not appreciate. Even your weapon’s defensive capabilities relied on keeping a target at bay, and Yang, from what you had seen, has spent years mastering getting in close.Despite the familiar tremor of nervousness as you stepped onto the stage, you keep your composure. Both you and your opponent could have been chiseled from marble, though your expression was one of cautious judgment and hers one of amused ease. Ms. Goodwitch calls for the to of you to shake hands, and you do, albeit with much less force than the first time.“Good luck,” she tells you with a playful smirk, “You’re gonna need it.” The words annoy just enough to light a small, competitive fire within you. You offer her a cool smile in return and a, “We’ll see,” before returning to your side on the ring. A few moments of silence pass, and then the signal to begin is given.>A) Charge her! If she relies on constant aggression, beating her to the punch should throw her off balance.>B) Be on your guard. She can’t do as much damage if you use Langerdorn to keep her out of arm’s reach.>C) Prepare a gravity glyph. A jab or hook could catch you if you move forward or to the sides, the only way left was up!>D) Prepare an ice glyph. If Yang wants to be an unstoppable force, introduce her to an immovable object.

>>1735171>>B) Be on your guard. She can’t do as much damage if you use Langerdorn to keep her out of arm’s reach.Poke her with the pointy stick.
Rolled 13 (1d100)>>1735171> C Can we go up and hover?WE HAVE THE HIGH GROUND
>>1735171>B) Be on your guard. She can’t do as much damage if you use Langerdorn to keep her out of arm’s reach.Gotta take advantage of our superior reach before she gets in our face. If she ends up turning it into a shoot-out afterwards, we'll probably have the time and space to bust out some glyphs.
>>1735171>>C) Prepare a gravity glyph. A jab or hook could catch you if you move forward or to the sides, the only way left was up!
>>1735171>C) Prepare a gravity glyph. A jab or hook could catch you if you move forward or to the sides, the only way left was up!
>>1735171>D) Prepare an ice glyph. If Yang wants to be an unstoppable force, introduce her to an immovable object.I feel like this and A are the only options that are proactive enough, and I'd rather create an opening to exploit than rely on closing with a brawler.
I'm curious about all the glyph votes when Whitaker mentioned his semblance had a slowish activation rate that didn't stack up too well against Yang's aggressive style.
>>1735214>D) Prepare an ice glyph. If Yang wants to be an unstoppable force, introduce her to an immovable object.WHY?! WHY MUST YOU RUN RIGHT BEFRE I GO TO BED?! WHY MUST I HAVE A FULL TIME JOB THAT DEMANDS I GO TO BED AT A REASONABLE HOUR?!
>>1735165Hell, you know what? Even if SPWB wasn't really my first choice of team, I really can't deny the narrative and thematic cohesion here. I mean, shit, it's literally implied in the name.I see what you've done there, and it's very clever, especially since it was there the whole time and only now that it was spelt out can I really see it.
>>1735220She still has to close first. Preparing a powerful attack to land before she's gotten into her own fighting distance is the best way for us to go about getting the first blow in, because once she's engaged we may not be in a position to use glyphs.
>>1735171>>D) Prepare an ice glyph. If Yang wants to be an unstoppable force, introduce her to an immovable object.Anyone up for accidental groping?
>>1735171>D) Prepare an ice glyph. If Yang wants to be an unstoppable force, introduce her to an immovable object.I wonder if we can use the ice glyph to freeze the floor and make her footing unstable.
>>1735232I get it now, taking control of the tempo of the fight instead of playing a defensive game. Makes more sense than I initially thought.
Ice glyph wins! Stop fucking voting faster than I can call it! Roll best of 3, 1d1001

>>1735262I am become rage.
>>1735251Oh my god that was almost really bad.
Rolled 41 (1d100)>>1735248Seriously we should have gravity the way out of it
>>1735356Come on anon, it's basic pokemon shit, Ice beats Fire. Oh wait. All jokes aside, even if the ice doesn't do much for us, it'll provide a good distraction while we set up our next move.
>>1735239>mfw no one wants to turn the arena into an ice rink and have fancy figure skater Whit skating circles around Yang while she tries to regain her footing.
>>1735379This would seriously be awesome as shit, I just don't think it's going to happen.Also, rolling high enough to wing it through summoning would make Winter proud as shit.
>>1735379Sounds like a good way to make Yang frustrated, which just makes her (literally) hotter. It'd melt.
>>1735171The only option when faced with ruthless aggression was a merciless defense. You and Yang move at the same moment, her a full charge and you a small stab forward with Langerdorn. The tip of the spear strikes the arena floor, and a white glyph begins to pulsate around the tiny impact before shifting into a light blue. In the split second it takes you to set up your trap, Yang has already crossed half the arena. She’s fast, but she still has an entire half to go, which gives you enough time to activate the dust trapped within your glyph.A smooth pillar of ice rushes out of the symbol, and you lose vision of Yang for a moment. Her position reconfirms itself when you hear the sounds of a rough impact and shattering ice. The pillar cracks from the force, but the structure holds. You have to time to appreciate the execution of your plan. You spin around the pillar and see Yang pushing herself out of the small human-shaped hole she’s unwillingly bored.You can’t give her a moment to get her feet back under her. The defense must be merciless, so you whip Langerdorn around yourself to maximize its momentum before slamming the butt of the staff into the back of her head, which causes Yang to headbutt the ice once again. You swing again, now that you have her in a compromising position, but Yang will not give you this fight for free. An arm flings behind her and catches your weapon.Yang attempts to rip Langerdorn from your grip, but you hold fast and are flung back towards your side of the arena, spear still in hand. You don’t have much time before Yang frees herself entirely. A quick check confirms that Yang’s aura has dropped significantly from the initial blows, but she’s still at over half her capacity.>A) Press your advantage with the Ice dust. Get behind her and trap her between two walls of ice.>B) Get on top of the pillar and prepare for a sneak attack.>C) She’s weaker than you are now. If you keep her at bay, you should be able to take her in a straight fight.
>>1735390It would probably be as easy to freeze a thin layer over the floor as it would be to construct an ice barricade strong enough to stop Yang.
>>1735402>A) Press your advantage with the Ice dust. Get behind her and trap her between two walls of ice.
>>1735402>>A) Press your advantage with the Ice dust. Get behind her and trap her between two walls of ice.
>>1735402>>B) Get on top of the pillar and prepare for a sneak attack.
>>1735402>B) Get on top of the pillar and prepare for a sneak attack.Take the high ground and snipe her while she's dazed.
>>1735402>B) Get on top of the pillar and prepare for a sneak attack.
>B) Get on top of the pillar and prepare for a sneak attack.
>>1735402>A) Press your advantage with the Ice dust.Not with the wall, though.She's going to charge again, I'm guessing. Wait for her to commit, then use an ice glyph to create a thin layer on the floor between us. Clothesline her with the haft of the spear, with a follow up coup de grâce if possible.
>>1735402>B) Get on top of the pillar and prepare for a sneak attack.Change tactics to something different than what she's just seen. Keeping her off-balance while constantly setting up our next attack means we dominate the fight.
>>1735402>B) Get on top of the pillar and prepare for a sneak attack."I have the high ground!"
>>1735402>C) She’s weaker than you are now. If you keep her at bay, you should be able to take her in a straight fight.
>>1735410>>1735411>>1735414>>1735416>>1735417>>1735421>>1735427>>1735435You can finish it off here and now! Roll 1d100, best of 3!

Rolled 43 (1d100)>>1735496I may be too late, but I might as well.Kinda getting tired of thirty second rolling windows.
>>173550062 it is, writing!
>>1735511with her unaware and lower aura then us it might not be enough for an instant KO but enough to hurt her some more Just keep WHITtling her down
>>1735534If we don't end up using that pun I'm gonna find Brother and send him a strongly worded letter
>>1735534>>1735548This is how Whitaker accidentally catches Yang's attention during the waifu war.
>>1735559Imagine if taiyang hears about it and challenges our puns to the death
>>1735567The competition would be filled with so many terrible puns that people would call it a pun battle until deaf.>That's the only pun I could think of I'm so sorry
>>1735594It'ds okay, it would end in a tai anyways
>>1735618God dammit why didn't I think of that.
>>1735402Yang is going to expect a capitalizing move. Despite being bodily thrown off of your attack, you still hold the advantage, and a quick finish is exactly what you should do. Which means it’s exactly what she’s prepared for. You call another glyph at your feet and launch off of it’s black glow, coming to a halt on top of the icy pillar. You feel your perch lurch as Yang finishes ripping herself out of it, and the wicks of flame licking at her hair tells you two things. Yang is growing frustrated, and you’ve done enough damage for her showy counter-semblance to activate.You hold your breath, waiting to see where she goes and how to best approach. Yang doesn’t give you the luxury, and pounds an angry fist into the rapidly weakening ice. With a single thunderous crack, the pillar is broken and begins to tip, with you on top of it. The shifting weight draws out a surprised yelp, which draws Yang’s attention. So much for sneaking up on her.She attacks the tower again, accelerating the drop and forcing you to drop to the floor once again. There’s a moment of stillness before Yang rushes you, and you just barely manage to hold her back. Each driving step she takes forward is met by a probe and a shove from your halberd, keeping her only just away. You can feel the heat from her punches as they pass only inches from your stomach, but they don’t hit, and that’s what matters most.You feint a sweeping attack off of another block, and Yang dodges a hit that isn’t coming, giving you space to escape the danger zone. You twirl away and the head of Langerdorn snaps in two. By the time you finish the spin, the axe head is fully formed and delivers a vicious bite into the aura hovering above Yang’s lower back.She shouts in pain and surprise as her aura continues to tick away. With no way to reach you behind her, Yang instead dodges forward and rolls, coming up to face you with an angry scowl under blood red eyes. Both of you break the locked gazes to check aura levels. You’ve been brought to almost half by Yang’s barrage and your rough landing, but Yang herself has only a sliver left, and she’s burning herself out quickly.>A) Take no risks, show no sportsmanship. Swap to your rifle form and open fire with your dummy rounds until her aura breaks.>B) Remain cautious. Wait for her to rush you again, and finish her with a flurry from a range when Langerdorn is most comfortable.>C) Get aggressive. Charge in while she’s still on one knee and end it with a well-placed strike.>D) Be flashy. A gravity glyph to launch you up, a few twirls for luck, and a massive overhead slam to wipe out the last of her bar.
>>1735631>C) Get aggressive. Charge in while she’s still on one knee and end it with a well-placed strike.
>>1735631>>B) Remain cautious. Wait for her to rush you again, and finish her with a flurry from a range when Langerdorn is most comfortable.Fist range is where she excels
>>1735631>>A) Take no risks, show no sportsmanship. Swap to your rifle form and open fire with your dummy rounds until her aura breaks.
>>1735631>A) Take no risks, show no sportsmanship. Swap to your rifle form and open fire with your dummy rounds until her aura breaks.Just end it. Don't blow it by making a move that's right in her wheelhouse or getting overconfident with a flashy move.
>>1735631>B) Remain cautious. Wait for her to rush you again, and finish her with a flurry from a range when Langerdorn is most comfortable.The one thing we can count on her to do in this state is to rush in, so plan to counter. Same way we almost got her down to 50% the first time.
>>1735631>>C) Get aggressive. Charge in while she’s still on one knee and end it with a well-placed strike.
>>1735631>A) Take no risks, show no sportsmanship. Swap to your rifle form and open fire with your dummy rounds until her aura breaks.
>>1735631>B) Remain cautious. Wait for her to rush you again, and finish her with a flurry from a range when Langerdorn is most comfortable.
>>1735631>A) Take no risks, show no sportsmanship. Swap to your rifle form and open fire with your dummy rounds until her aura breaks.Sorry yang but you need to chill. (Use an ice round to finish her if we can.)
>>1735631>show no sportsmanship.How's this not showing sportsmanship? Are we expected to fight in melee range?
>>1735671>A) Take no risks, show no sportsmanship. Swap to your rifle form and open fire with your dummy rounds until her aura breaks.
>>1735679Most do, since it's a duel. But it isn't a rule or anything. It's just some people may interpret it as a bit of a dick move.
>>1735631>>1735687>B) Remain cautious. Wait for her to rush you again, and finish her with a flurry from a range when Langerdorn is most comfortable.In that case i'm going with this one.
>>1735687Seems kinda dumb, considering their weapons are generally half gun/other projectile weapon. Nevermind, that makes perfect sense for teenagers with the ability to fight acrobatically and sling around cool weapons.
>>1735687Then they are idiots. Yang isn't someone to fight close range, sportsmanship or not.Duel nothing, this isn't a lesson on being a friend, it's combat training. What Grimm is gonna let someone off from fighting long-range if it can fight long-range?
>>1735642>>1735643>>1735646>>1735662>>1735671>>1735677>>1735704Shoot her! SHOOOOT HEEEEER! Writing!
>>1735631>>1735710>>A) Take no risks, show no sportsmanship. Swap to your rifle form and open fire with your dummy rounds until her aura breaks.>>1735698>>1735701Indeed. Plus Yang has her own ranged weapon, she can just shoot at us if she's bothered by it.
>>1735706Fuck honor, this is combat training. Sooner or later people are gonna have to deal with long-range opponents. Pretty sure Nevermores shoot their feathers, for example. Better get used to that shit in a classroom.
>>1735714Nevermores shoot feathers, I think Razorboars shoot quills, and don't Deathstalkers shoot acid too?
>>1735727Oh, and Cinders shoot fire and arrows, Tyrians shoot bullets, and I'm pretty sure that Romans shoot bullets too.
>>1735727There's also the Nuckelavee that can stretch its arms out and spin it around like a Beyblade.>>1735747>and I'm pretty sure that Romans shoot bullets too.He shoots fireballs to my memory.
>>1735751>He shoots fireballs to my memory.Looked it up and apparently it's flares. Which explains why he was able to golf it.
well we won boys...no rolls.
>>1735864QM confirmed it in the discord
>>1735896>social linksDon't lie, she's your waifu.Besides, if someone should have social links built up, it's with us and Weiss/Blake/Penny.What fool gets secondary characters up to Rank 10 before the main cast?
>>1735903>implying at least one of them isn't rank 10 already
>>1735916If Weiss isn't already at rank 10 that'd be pretty sad, considering she's our twin. Unless of course we have to come to an understanding over our opinions on faunus. If not Weiss, it's Blake isn't it? She just willingly revealed herself as a faunus to a Schnee due to trust. That seems like a pretty big deal.
>>1735916Weiss is already there, duh.But that still leaves Blake and Penny, though I assume Penny is somewhere around...8?There's still Nora, Ren, Ruby, Yang, Pyrrha and Jaune. Maybe by the time Jaune's semblance is even revealed, it'll be time to reach rank 6 with him.Regardless, let's do our best to be the best big brother.
>>1735934that would be 7 at best....it would depend how others will react.
>>1735934From Brother: Weiss was 15 out of 20 starting, currently 12.
>>1735959It's because we didn't let Weiss hunt down Sunbro, isn't it.
>>1736001That is part of it, mainly its the fact that we havent agreed with Weiss on a single thing this entire quest.
>>1736001More because we've basically never sided with or agreed with her the whole quest thus far In addition to not really hanging out with her
>>1735631Yang may be down, but you haven’t won yet, and you won’t win by playing to her strengths. Landerdorn shrinks in overall size and the blades snap into a hand guard around the trigger. Yang’s eyes widen at your decision, and she’s dodging by the time you pull the trigger. The rounds may not be live, but the sheer impact force from your rifle means you could be firing bean bags and it would take her down in this state.Your hands work the bolt mechanisms as quickly as you can, and it’s just enough to avoid giving Yang time to move in. She’s forced to jump around and over your shots while flinging wild shots from her gauntlets. Her own dummy rounds land so wide that you don’t bother to dodge.Eventually, with no progress to be made, none of her desperate attacks landing, and her body rapidly beginning to tire without aura to regenerate her, Yang makes a bad jump and catches a shot to the gut. The impact spins her mid air and she lands on her stomach. You’re worried for a moment when she simply lies there, but Yang pushes herself up with a weary groan. Ms. Goodwitch declares you the winner, and you and Yang excuse yourselves you change back into your uniforms.(CONTINUED)
>>1736038You step out of the showers still drying your hair with a towel. The men’s locker room seems to be deserted, but as you move towards your locker, you hear someone clear their throat. Yang is leaning against the row of lockers, dressed in the Beacon uniform, hair still wet from her own shower and a glare in her lilac eyes. You’re glad that you have the foresight to wear waterproof underwear on combat-class days, or this would be a very compromising position to be found in.“So. What was that supposed to be?” Yang’s tone was alien in her voice. You had heard her angry, disappointed, and happy, but this was something else. A monotone that gave nothing away. Coming from the boisterous young woman, it sent uncomfortable tingling down your spine.“What was what supposed to be?” you ask, pulling on your pants one leg at a time. “Oh, I dunno,” she snarks, temper flaring a bit, “the way you finished the fight in the most bullshit way possible? We both saw the aura meters. You could’ve won that fight straight up.”You stop with your undershirt in your hands as you consider her question.>A) God, how bratty can you get? “If you came here to complain about losing, I don’t want to hear it.”>B) You were too afraid to get near her. “To be honest? I saw your semblance and I got scared.”>C) You don’t take it easy on dangerous opponents. “You’re dangerous in close range. Keeping my distance and not thinking I could beat you at your own game was the safest option.”
>>1736044>>C) You don’t take it easy on dangerous opponents. “You’re dangerous in close range. Keeping my distance and not thinking I could beat you at your own game was the safest option.”
>>1736044>C) You don’t take it easy on dangerous opponents. “You’re dangerous in close range. Keeping my distance and not thinking I could beat you at your own game was the safest option.”
>>1736044>C) You don’t take it easy on dangerous opponents. “You’re dangerous in close range. Keeping my distance and not thinking I could beat you at your own game was the safest option.”The only reasonable justification.
>>1736044>C) You don’t take it easy on dangerous opponents. “You’re dangerous in close range. Keeping my distance and not thinking I could beat you at your own game was the safest option.”"If I was low on Aura and I was far away firing at you, would you run straight at me through an open field or through cover?"
>>1736044>C) You don’t take it easy on dangerous opponents. “You’re dangerous in close range. Keeping my distance and not thinking I could beat you at your own game was the safest option.”"You won't last long in the hunting profession if you take needless risks."
>>1736044>>1736068>>1736077Support. Better this happens now than later.
>>1736044>C) You don’t take it easy on dangerous opponents. “You’re dangerous in close range. Keeping my distance and not thinking I could beat you at your own game was the safest option.”>D. Just like if your had properly closed on me I'd expect you to keep pummeling me until I lost. Don't pull punches against a tough foe. Great way to end up WHITtled down to nothing.
Rolled 29 (1d100)Rolling to see how well Whitaker is with women
>>1736087This write in
>>1736087>>1736098Agreed. I like the turnaround with the pun wrapping it up nicely.
>>1736087Oh this is even better. I was hoping we'd throw some puns in with her.
>you had me cornered, why didn't you charge into my melee range?>you won by shooting meYang, it's like you don't know you PUNCHED through solid ice.
C is the winner with a pretty overwhelming majority! Actually, it's unanimous! Writing, then we're done for tonight!
>>1736044>>A) God, how bratty can you get? “If you came here to complain about losing, I don’t want to hear it.”
>>1736161Never mind, it was just the majority!
>>1736044>C) You don’t take it easy on dangerous opponents. “You’re dangerous in close range. Keeping my distance and not thinking I could beat you at your own game was the safest option.”I also wanted to throw in something along the lines of "This is a game to you, isn't it?" or "This isn't a game to me." or "You've never had someone actually try to kill you before, have you?" but I don't think our social link with Yang is high enough to let that slip.>>1736087I also don't think it's high enough to get into a pun match with Yang, as much as I would love to. And I would. Whitley hasn't made a pun before onscreen, has he?
>>1736170>>1736161>That one vote ruining a unanimous vote.>>1736186>Whitley hasn't made a pun before onscreen, has he?He was considering one once but he held himself back before he did.
>>1736205When? I honestly don't remember, and I (apparently) wrote it!
Also, to be fair, she WAS dodging our shots for a while. She wasn't exactly helpless, and in that state a solid blow to the head would seemingly have been enough to lose us the fight.
>>1736209It was a single sentence back when we were being introduced to the characters, I think Ruby and Yang. It could've either been holding back a pun or a joke, I'm not too sure.
>>1736044It was a decision you had based in practicality, and you responded with an even tone as you pulled your shirt on, “You’re dangerous in close range. Keeping my distance and not thinking I could beat you at your own game was the safest option.” As you button the fabric, Yang gives you a searching once over, as if looking for the real answer somewhere written on your half finished uniform.“That’s it?” She seems wholly unimpressed, or perhaps she simply doesn’t believe you. Either way, you throw on your tie and answer, “Of course it is. We went in to win, didn’t we? I’ve seen what you can do with those fists, you shattered a three foot block of solid ice if you’ll remember, and I wasn’t going to risk getting near them.” You punctuate the statement by tightening the necktie and pulling your jacket on. You close your locker and meet Yang’s eyes, now that you’re fully dressed.“It wasn’t anything personal. I just had to take you seriously.” This time, your confession gets a small grin and a light punch on the shoulder. “Oh, man, I thought you were pissed about something! Seriously, that pillar stuff was just mean!” she laughs, and you adopt a teasing expression.“Mean? Is that what you call getting outwitted?” Yang stops laughing, and for a moment you’re worried you offended her with some gentle trash-talk. Then you hear her mumble something. “Outwitted…” Yang’s shoulders start to shake and her stomach begins to convulse, and just as you’re starting to get worried, she lets out a peal of laughter.“Outwitted!” Yang walks out of the locker room, laughing so hard that she has to clutch her stomach. The laughter echoes from the hall, and you listen to it carry on for quite a long time before you finally gather your supplies and move to the next class, carefully going over the conversation in your mind. Did you say something funny?
I know it's only been two scenes, but that's me done for tonight! I'll be here if anyone has questions they'd like answered.
>>1736267>out whitted.Our puns are nothing to Schnees at, YangWe'll have you snow that our jokes leave everyone in the dust.I am sorry.Hey Brother, what was Winters most used Grimm when training us?
>>1736283>BeowolvesGod damn, are they just "my first Grimm hunt" fodder, or whatI feel kinda sorry for them. Kinda.
>>1736294Beowolves are kinda shit, full stop. They're werewolves, but in a world where the basic unit of combat is "Platinum Games Character Action Hero," I'm afraid being smarter than the aver-age wolf isn't going to cut it.
>>1736265>In persona game>You got outwitted>Yang: ..........>What?>Laughs>RANK UP!!Seriously this is like P4 all over again
>>1736304Did you... Like P4?
>>1736306>You became friends with Yang.>Yang will now DIE FOR YOU!
>>1736320Under that scheme would maxing out Blake's links lead to her bringing us Adam's head as murderpresents?Because I would be okay with that for several reasons.
>>1736320Are we talking about friends or friend-friends?
>>1736328I think it would help activate her Not-Persona when she meets Adam again and decides to channel her inner Phantom Thief.***And then she'll get tired after fighting him off and want to take a catnap with Us.***>>1736330Idk Nora, ask Ren.
>>1736350In all honesty, so long as she doesn't abruptly decide to *stop* trusting Whit, or go way out of her way to antagonize Weiss, or otherwise go *full* moron I'll consider it an improvement to canon.Actually developing intimate friendships/relationships, sticking with her teammates even after Beacon falls (if it falls), helping Whitaker work to undermine the White Fang and figure out how to mend what Jacques has broken, or killing Adam in cold blood would all be welcome bonuses in my book.
>>1736412We can fix what Jacques has broken by killing him.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKubHNJAFDo felt like I should leave this here
>>1738236I'm experiencing disdain for this man. His voice and speech patterns make him sound like a much lamer version of Plinkett, he doesn't pick up on background cues, and he's not taking into consideration the show's target audience.
The discord had a small joke that the dress Ruby wears during the prom was worn by her mother during her's and Taiyang's flings. Things lead to another, and this is what came out.https://pastebin.com/aVqafYAP
>>1738236Your feelings misled you. RWBYg already knows about him. A few of us admire his cynical approach but most of us are apathetic.But having said that, I guess not all of us here are RWBYg.
>>1738331He was doing a Plinkett impression.Also he does take into consideration who the audience is and how nobody seems to know who the show is mainly made for...
>>1738336That made for a good laugh.
>>1738236Eh, he makes a lot of valid points, a lot of which continue on into the rest of the chapters as well.But I do think that trying to perform a full literary criticism of RWBY is like explaining to a nine year old that Santa Claus is not only not real, but dead. Very petty and entirely unnecessary.The show is held together by duct tape and dreams, and that's part of the appeal. It's very much an auteur driven project. Everybody knows it's not going to win any awards without somebody having to make an hour long video to point it out.
>>1738236On the one hand, it comes off a bit too much like a hatchet job... like even though that was kinda the point. On the other hand the season had a lot of shit that felt less amateurish and closer to genuinely dysfunctional. Like scripting, directing, and animating were all done by separate committees that never communicated. And the last minute changes only exacerbated that underlying problem.
>>1738645> Everybody knows it's not going to win any awardsIt's won a few awards:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RWBY#Awards
>>1734623Holy shit, that's hilarious horrible
>>1739283>https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RWBY#AwardsAs a fan of the series, and a film & tv professional, those are nothing awards granted by nobodies. They'll have meaning in like, ten years, when there's an established canon of quality in independent internet television.
>>1734623That's funny as shit.
>>1734623As someone who supported the winning waifu, that was the fucking best.The writer better not retcon that shit when he makes a sequel.
>>1734623Couldn't have been worse than PGQThen again, knowing the naruto fanbase I'm sure it was pretty awful
>>1739665I wouldn't say it was worse than PGQ, but the asspain was more about the questing matter itself than any sort of meta. Plus, anons collectively just could not make up their fucking minds
>>1739671Princess Guard Quest, greatest shitstorm of our time. Honestly, it was probably one of the major contributors to quests being given the boot, it was just that bad.
>>1739676Christ with a name like that...What happened?
>>1739679Just a clusterfuck over the waifuing.
>>1739647If its the quest i think it was, Leaf ninja quest, then Ten Ten lost to some future kage of the stone village.I liked that she lost soo badly that she became an uncaring suicidal teleporting monster ninja. >>1739676I never got around to finishing it.Did it ever get worst than when that pompus fuck of a rival challenged us to a duel in another country and then lawfully cheated by using a sentient sword and beat us?
>>1739681How'd it all burn down?
>>1739687A tale of sabotage and betrayal for the ages, and an abject lesson in why explicit routelocks are a terrible idea.Pretty sure the Sylviefags never actually recovered from that coup de grace. Their salt shall flow unto eternity.
>>1739706Did people get salty that their waifu lost the bowl and sabotage the quest?
>>1739713No, it was just a bunch of different waifu factions intentionally sabotaging each other with an atmosphere of veiled hostility for ages, until one side managed to routelock out of nowhere and everyone collectively lost their goddamn mind.
>>1739726That sounds like the exact goddamn same thing that happened in JasperQuest on /trash/
>>1739706>>1739713To be fair, it became back to back running clusterfucks. The romance was far from the only thing wrong with PGQ.

>>1739748I don't know, and I have to admit I lost the ability to care.
>>1739748He's literally still working on it https://studioarchelon.wordpress.com/Say what you will about the man, he's not a flake.
>>1739726Oh man, for a second i was worried that the red haired princes we waifued cheated on us or something. Then i remembered Sylvie was that annoying bespectacled mage girl.

>>1736265The procession you lead down the streets of Vale is an art piece of contrast, penned by one Penny Polendina. She had invited you to explore the city as the excitement for next semester’s Vytal Festival began to flare in the form of decoration and salesmen. You had agreed, and Penny was so excited by the prospect that she invited Ciel. The Cadet can never escape the attention of her partner, and so Nora invited herself, as well as Ren. Pyrrha decided to join the rest of her team and come along without discussion, bringing your total from two to six.Most of the walk consists of watching Nora and Penny gawk at whatever exciting thing catches their eye and occasionally pulling them away from it. You’re unsure if anyone (besides you) brought any money to buy anything, and none of the vendors at the impromptu bazaar are selling anything more interesting than a few trinkets you’re fairly certain at least one of your friends could have made, given the raw materials and an afternoon. That wasn’t really fair to the smith, though. He had no way of knowing that you knew Ruby.The evening only began to turn towards something unexpected when Penny grabs Ciel’s arm and drags her towards a display of Atlesian machinery. Like her father’s puzzles, you have no idea what it is or what it does, but it seems sleek. You’re just glad Penny’s already failed to hide her interests, or you’d be worrying about her revealing her secret via her knowledge of engineering.With implicit permission from the “host” of the gathering to leave the group behind, Nora mimics her actions with Ren, dragging him towards an exhibit distinctly Mistrali in origin, if only for the weapons on display. That vendor has set up on the opposite side of - and much further down the street from - the mechanic, leaving you standing in the middle of a small crowd with Pyrrha. You’ll be out here for a while. How do you plan to enjoy yourself?>A) Follow after Penny and Ciel. It’ll be boring listening to them talk about tech you don’t understand, but you know them pretty well by now.>B) Follow Nora and Ren. You haven’t gotten a chance to know either of them very well, and there’s no real pressure of secrets to keep or fame around them. You are here to have fun.>C) Invite Pyrrha to browse with you. You wouldn’t want her to feel as if everyone ran off without her, and it’s an opportunity to get to know her beyond her reputation.>D) Browse by yourself. There must be SOMETHING cool here.
>>1744219>C) Invite Pyrrha to browse with you. You wouldn’t want her to feel as if everyone ran off without her, and it’s an opportunity to get to know her beyond her reputation.

>>1744283You could call this a [spoilers]Pyrrhic victory[/spoilers]
>>1744288>autocomplete fucked meWelp. That's what I get for trying to be clever.
>>1744219Given what you know of Pyrrha, you doubt she’d be the type to feel particularly hurt about the group running off without her. Then again, all you know about Pyrrha is that she’s a popular and strong tournament fighter. Now would be a good time to add to that pile of knowledge. You tilt your head towards the winding road before you and ask, “Want to find something more interesting?” Pyrrha seems to think about it for a moment before agreeing, and the two of you move down the street.The story is much the same down here, and nothing catches your eye and forces you to stop. Thankfully, you’ve got a conversation partner to push the burden of entertainment on. “What’s Mistral like?” you ask, genuinely curious. You know the Kingdom is incredibly diverse, and each Mistrali has a different answer to the question. What side of it had Pyrrha seen?“It’s a… Hard city. Everyone smiles, and it’s colorful,” she says with a conceding tone while gesturing to the mostly beige walls of Vale, “but no one is your friend, and the paint isn’t changed so often because it becomes boring to look at, if you understand my meaning.” It surprised you, but it really shouldn’t have. Mistral had a reputation of violence. You suppose it’s surprising to hear that it’s something so obvious that even a local hero had to see it so often.“It sounds rough.” Pyrrha smiles sadly as her eyes focus on something you can’t see. “It was,” she says, “but I suppose I’m grateful for that. I didn’t learn everything I know from Sanctum.” Again, a part of you knew that. “Nikos” wasn’t a name very well known outside of it’s one successful member, and in Mistral, if you aren’t on the top, you’re on the bottom. That didn’t mean it wasn’t surprising to hear.>A) Empathize. “I can’t imagine what it was like, having to fight so young.”>B) Change subjects. “Well, is there anything pleasant about Mistral?”>C) Focus the discussion on Pyrrha’s career. “How do you become a four time champion?”>D) Focus the discussion on Pyrrha herself. “I’m sure you don’t fight ALL the time.”>E) Talk about Jaune. “I’m surprised to hear that you’ve taken on a student.”
>>1744406>>E) Talk about Jaune. “I’m surprised to hear that you’ve taken on a student.”
>>1744406> D) Focus the discussion on Pyrrha herself. “I’m sure you don’t fight ALL the time.”Was very tempted to ask about Arkos, but it seems to be on-track without needing our help.
>>1744406>E) Talk about Jaune. “I’m surprised to hear that you’ve taken on a student.”You knew this was coming Brother. You knew!
>>1744406>>D) Focus the discussion on Pyrrha herself. “I’m sure you don’t fight ALL the time.”
>>1744406>E) Talk about Jaune. “I’m surprised to hear that you’ve taken on a student.”
>>1744418On track is bad for our GRAND VISION. It must be the most magnificent seduction of Pyrrha known to fanfiction!
>>1744406>D) Focus the discussion on Pyrrha herself. “I’m sure you don’t fight ALL the time.”
Well, we have a tie between D and E! I'll let the timer run for a bit, and if we're still tied, I'll flip a coin!
>>1744483why not both?If not then>>E) Talk about Jaune. “I’m surprised to hear that you’ve taken on a student.”
>>1744489That's it for the tie! Writing!

>>1744406“I’m surprised to hear that you’d taken on a student.” Pyrrha seems to stiffen at the statement before instantly relaxing again. Had it been a secret? “I have no idea what you mean,” she says in an artificially leveled tone. Apparently it had. “Jaune?” you prompt, mostly to confirm you already knew. Pyrrha hesitates, just long enough for someone to consider how they should react, before raising her eyebrows in realization.“Oh! You mean our practice bouts?” You’re sure she knew exactly what you meant the first time, but you play along and nod. Pyrrha forces herself to laugh a little, “Well, yes, I suppose he’s been learning a thing or two, but we’re honestly just practicing.” You give a neutral hum, neither vocally accepting nor denying her assertion. You aren’t sure why Pyrrha would want to keep training Jaune a secret. If that’s what was really going on, it would be totally innocent, but it’s all you can think of. Maybe she didn’t want everyone else asking for lessons.“What about you, Whitaker?” You quirk an eyebrow at her before you ask, “What about me?” Pyrrha adopts a knowing, and teasing, expression as she explains. “Jaune’s told me you’ve been helping him as well,” she says in a voice somewhere between gentle ribbing and honest curiosity. You nod, conceding the knowledge without a fight. “What exactly have you been teaching him?”>A) Tell the exact truth. “Confidence, mostly. I’m not sure what he’s going to do with it.”>B) Have some fun with your answer. “Girls.”>C) Use the cover story. “Keep it between us, but he asked me for help in asking out Weiss.”>D) Keep it a secret. “I don’t have to tell if you don’t.”
>>1744802>B) Have some fun with your answer. “Girls.”
>>1744802>A) Tell the exact truth. “Confidence, mostly. I’m not sure what he’s going to do with it.”But damn, whatever it is he ends up doing for it he NEEDS it.
>>1744802>A) Tell the exact truth. “Confidence, mostly. I’m not sure what he’s going to do with it.”
>>1744802>>A) Tell the exact truth. “Confidence, mostly. I’m not sure what he’s going to do with it.”

>>1744802>>C) Use the cover story. “Keep it between us, but he asked me for help in asking out Weiss.”How is this a cover story? We know it's what he wants to do.
>>1744802> >A) Tell the exact truth. “Confidence, mostly. I’m not sure what he’s going to do with it.”Might as well tell her.
>>1744810>>1744812>>1744818>>1744821>>1744822>>1744849>>1744850>>1744885>not accidentally bullying PyrrhaAh, you guys are no fun. I'll write for you anyway, though!
>>1744900Also, somewhat fucked up. The cover story is that you don't know, the truth is the Weiss option. Mistakes like this are why I include the exact dialogue in the choice. Either way, if the eight who voted for A's dialogue would like to recast your votes for C's, feel free. Otherwise, Whitaker is going to fudge the truth a bit to keep Jaune's interests a secret. I'll give you guys 10 minutes to recast
>>1744914I would now like to recast it as A. I wana bully Pyrrha a little.
>>1744914I wanted to bully the Pyrrha! Curse you other players!
>>1744914I voted based on the exact dialogue and would like to keep it as such.
>>1744923>>1744924>>1744980The voters have spoken (by staying silent), Whit'll cover for Jaune! Writing!
>>1744914i want to bully phyrra so we can feel bad when "that" time comes.
>>1745021But we won't be around when she's on her period anon.
>>1745021We don't even know she likes him yet...
>>1745021I guess we can just save bullying for after she kills penny
>>1744802You shrug and decide to fudge the truth a bit, “Confidence, mostly. I’m not sure what he’s going to do with it.” Jaune may want to date your sister, but that was between him, Weiss, and (now) you. Pyrrha offers a small smile and in a light voice, says, “Well, he could certainly use it. It seems like most of Jaune’s problems come down to him not believing that he’s capable of solving them.” You think you can hear something else in those words, some sort of meaning behind it, but you lack context. Without that, there’s not way to be sure, so you let it go.The walk continues with salesman after salesman failing to impress either of you. The bazaar has set itself up on only a few blocks, so by the time you’ve at least looked towards everything, you’ve circled back towards the group. Ren and Nora are chatting with their team leader while Penny scans the crowd and gives a wide grin and a wave when she notices you approaching.The six of you mull around the crowd for a little while and eventually come to rest alongside one of the closed buildings. Ciel is browsing something on her scroll while the rest of her team have a quiet conversation you don’t pay attention to. Penny seems uncomfortable, keeping her hands to her sides and opening and closing them in a pattern, but before you can offer a conversation to distract her, your own scroll vibrates. It’s a single message from Winter.“Where are you?” You check and send the address.“Are you alone?” The second response denies it, and offers a list of who's present. If it were anyone else, you would’ve kept it to yourself, but Winter would find out if she wanted to know and disregard it if it wasn’t important.“Stay there. All of you. We need to talk to you.”(CONTINUED)
>>1745339Perceived breach of trust in 5, 4
Rolled 75 (1d100)>>17455531....rolling how fucked are we
>>1745583Three quarters fucked, apperantly.
>>1745594So, does Jaune show up too and hit on Winter in front of us and Pyrrha?Jaune no, please. Pyrrha suffered enough for one reality.
>>1745601Winter would immediately kill Jaune no questions asked.
>>1745339You’re sitting in a police interrogation room with a warm cup and Winter on the other side of the table. You’d imagine this situation would’ve had been much tenser if your sister wasn’t the one talking to you. You’d hate to imagine what Penny must be feeling right now.“Whitaker,” she begins in a soft voice, “I’ve been informed that you and your friends are the ones who tipped us off to Torchwick’s involvement. I need you to go over everything you know, in detail.”It had been a few days since the events, and you struggled to remember them. In the end, you offered a semi-complete picture of events you were certain that could have any holes in it patched up by your friends. Winter nods along as she writes down everything you’re saying. “And this blonde friend of yours,” she asks, “she knows it was Junior?” You nod, as sure as you had ever been that Yang knows the man.Winter isn’t happy about the revelation though and leans back in her chair with a hand over her eyes. “This complicates things,” she mutters.“How?” You had thought a witness pointing him out would be enough to spur the police into action, but Winter shakes her head, probably guessing what you’re thinking. “Because Junior is one of the few men in this Kingdom I can’t touch,” she explains with a bitter edge. “He’s got people all over the city, and I’m fairly sure some of the police as well. Every time we come for him, he knows it hours in advance.” Winter taps her pen against the table in irritation, but you can see the look in her eyes change as she directs that anger somewhere useful.Before you can begin to wonder, Winter rips a page out of her notebook and begins writing. “I know this may be a hard question,” she says, “and difficult to answer out loud. That’s why we’ll write it down instead.” She continues to scribble and continues to explain, “Whitaker, if you think any of your friends may be helping Junior, you need to tell me.” She passes the paper to you and you read her true intentions, hidden from anyone who may listen to the conversation.“If we’re going to hit Junior, no one needs to know we’re coming. I can’t move without him knowing. I don’t want to ask, but I’ve got nothing else. Can your team catch him?”>A) Write an affirmative. “Just tell me where you want us.”>B) Decline. “We’re just trainees, Winter, we can’t take on hardened criminals!”>C) If you’re going to do this, you need to know more. “I have questions first.”
Guys, I cannot apologize enough for the update speed tonight. I'm gonna take a few days off after tonight to get my feet back underneath me so that this - hopefully - doesn't happen again.

>>1745614You scribble a quick affirmative before passing it back to Winter. It takes her a moment to read, but when she does, she smiles and sighs in relief. She writes a response and, after a few minutes, slides the paper towards you.“We have to move quickly, before he gets nervous enough to leave Vale. You know your friends better than I do, so bring who you want, but more people means more people to coordinate. You’ve got a time limit. By tomorrow night, absolute latest.” Below that, she’s drawn a crude map of Junior’s Club as well as its address. It’s a single-floor building with the majority taken by the dance floor and bar, with a smaller platform opposite of the main entrance. There are back rooms, possibly for management or more illicit forms of night-life entertainment, but none of them are marked.

There won’t be as many innocent people.>C) Tomorrow night. You need as much time as possible to get ready.(Who to bring?)(This is a delicate operation.

>>1745795Just a few observations: Yang has actually been into the club before, Blake is naturally sneaky, and Ciel is military. Those plus Whit would be my choices to actually go in, keeping in mind that a light footprint is preferable.Backup should be limited, four people TOPS, and as few people should know it's happening as possible.

It helps that they're also all good at analysis and/or direction.Have everyone else get some new digs from somewhere and meander in at different times into mostly different places.

After this 15 minutes are up, changes will be made (if there are any) and we'll get started!
From Brother himself>Coordinators will be communicating with the others to make sure the massive group moves as a unit and without letting Junior know you're coming. You can't rely on police support for that, since they're compromised, so you have to sacrifice some fire power to make sure the whole moves as a cohesive unit.So we need serious minded people for that that won't screw up instructions. Ciel, Pyrrah, and Blake are the three most likely to do this job correctly I believe.
>>1745993>A) Change (Blake and Pyrrah) to (Coordinating)>A) Change (Weiss) to (Going in)>A) Change (Jaune) to (Sitting out)
>>1745993>A) Change Nora to Sitting Out>A> Change Pyrrha to Coordinating>>1746004You could at least have Jaune coordinating Anon
>>1745993>B) It's okay, let's go!Honestly this is nowhere near what I wanted, but what I want is a fundamentally different strategy to what's been chosen. So from my perspective no changes are going to improve significantly on this.
>>1745993>>A) Change (Jaune) to (Coordinating)We have more than six going in. That means we need at least three coordinators if we don't want to tip off Junior, right?
>A) Change Jaune to Coordinating
>>1746004>>1745993>A) Change (Jaune) to (coord)>A) Change (Liquorice) to (Going in)Honestly guys not taking neo just because she is neo is very meta and we know it yes she didn't help us on the last thing but that isn't enough to be suspicious of her enough to not ask for her help on a critical mission
>>1746022>>1746025Jaune is a canon Coordinator, so I support the choice tomake him one for this scenario as well.

Really sorry about tonight, guys, this isn't the quality OR the speed I want to hold myself to. I'm gonna write up this next post, finish it for tonight, and then take a few days off.
>>1746055>>1746022>>1746036Support. Let's get Jaune's leadership or analytical skills up.>>1745994>You can't rely on police support for that, since they're compromised,>>1746036>she didn't help us on the last thing but that isn't enough to be suspicious of her enough to not ask for her help on a critical missionShe didn't help us out on our missions when we asked, hasn't gone to any of our meetings, has been missing for weeks, and hasn't interacted with any of us at all. She seemingly has been avoiding her team leader, Ruby, and her other teammates as well.Shouldn't we make such a critical mission based on trust, not lack of suspicion? We don't trust Liquorice and by that logic we should bring some of the other acquaintances we possibly met along like Sun as well.Which reminds me, we might want to ask Ciel and the other team leader, Ruby, on how much she trusts her teammates.
>>1746068It's fine. Try not to burn yourself out.
>>1745993Change Whitaker to CoordinatingChange Penny to CoordinatingChange Yang to Sitting Out
>>1746073I guess that is true enough but I think we both know that every other anon who voted against her voted that way for one reason only.
>>1746082Whoops, I'm hella late
>>1746086True. A bit of a shame too.>>1746073Personally, if it weren't for her possible suspicion for not voting for her, I wouldn't have brought her along because she seems too lazy or lacks the discipline for such a delicate mission from her track record. I think that'd fit Whitaker's personality if we tried going for that.>>1745993>Sitting Out:What were team members who are Sitting Out supposed to do?
Crud, sorry guys, I just now thought of something, but it's too late to change things.Shouldn't somebody keep an eye on Liquorice? Maybe we should have left others with her so a bunch of people leaving don't look suspicious.As it stands now, she's gonna know we're on to her... And if we're not watching her, she could beat us to Junior or something......Or maybe not, since she doesn't know about this operation yet. I think? Maybe I'm just being paranoid?
>>1746106>Shouldn't somebody keep an eye on Liquorice?I was thinking of that too, but it wasn't mentioned so I wasn't sure if it was an option.So switch Jaune back to guard duty, then switch one of the more tactical team members like us or Penny to Coordinating?
>>1746112>>1746055Alternatively we have Ruby Sitting Out so she can have a team leader talk with her teammate for the mission.
>>1746112>>1746106We are locked in now let's leave it at that
>>1746036She wasn't there for any of the investigation into the spy looking for the vault so I see no reason to bring her into this.
>>1746121>>1746116RIP Liquorice's team talk.
>>1746138A conversation requires two participant's minimum anyways I don't think anybody is getting through to he except maybe whit because of his unyielding charisma.
>>1746176It was just a joke anon referring to if we got a nat 100 to try and talk to her
>>1745795It’s almost midnight by the time everyone has spoken to the police to give their full statements and returned to Beacon, but you can’t let them have a break quite yet. Under normal circumstances, you wouldn’t think of breaking into anywhere, but you’ve got a lot to get through and a chalkboard would be very useful, so you lead Penny and a tired CNRP to a rarely used classroom door and unlock the simple bolt with a trick Winter taught you, involving a card and a pinch of Fire dust.You show the rest to their seats and send a message to Ruby and the rest of your own team, and after another few minutes of waiting and quiet arguing with Weiss for waking her up, all the participants of your plan are settled and ready for you to begin.“I’m sure everyone here remembers a few weeks ago, when all of us worked together to discover a plot to rob Beacon of the wealth kept in some imaginary vault. Most of us,” you say as your gaze drifts over Yang, then Nora, “decided to turn over our findings to the proper authorities. Tonight, I have been informed by one of these authorities that leaving it to them is no longer possible.” The entire group wakes up at your narration of events, and Yang gives you a smug smile when she’s sure you’re looking.“My sister, Winter, has been put in charge of this investigation, but finds herself stymied by corruption in the local police force. She’s decided to reach out to us, as it is extremely unlikely that anyone here works for Junior, our target.” Yang fully sits up, more attentive than you had ever seen her at her actual lectures, even the ones at a reasonable hour.“He’s the next link in finding out what, exactly, is going on. We’ve been asked to arrest him for questioning. To do so, we’ve been granted limited protection from legal repercussions, including breaking and entering, assault, and vigilantism.” Yang and Nora mirror each other’s feral grins, but you’re happy to see that everyone else is taking this idea very seriously.“We’ll be moving in tomorrow, during the day, to minimize risk to any civilians who may want to attend this club tomorrow night. I’ve divided us into two teams.” You grab a piece of untouched chalk and begin writing names on the board. The explanation of the plan goes smoothly, with only a few questions throughout the process. In the end, your plan isn’t very complicated, and while a few, notably Jaune and Ruby, seem unsure about the entire ordeal, most of them have internalized their roles and have accepted them. You can see Ren nodding along and Ciel taking a few notes on what she believes will be important. Penny gives you a small, encouraging smile and a thumbs up. You appreciate the confidence booster but don't believe you need it. You’re pretty sure nothing will go wrong.
Okay, so... This may be the worst I've ever run a session for Gemini. I've said it several times, but I'd like to reiterate that I'll be taking a few days off from running. I'm pretty sure this is what everyone meant when they talked about "burning myself out". Well, actually, I'm pretty sure they meant I'd lose interest, but if you'd excuse the Futurama reference, "the spirit is willing but the flesh is spongy and bruised."So, yeah, I'm taking a break from running for a few days. Still, Q&A for anyone who'd like to ask.
Had fun as always QM, also heh futuruma reference. See you soon and looking forward to the battle(?) or ambush with junior.
It's pretty cool how Whitaker has effectively mobilised most of the Beacon first years. Whereas in canon Team RWBY generally went at it alone when investigating Torchwick, Whitaker's doing it with way more manpower.The villains are some powerful and crafty bastards, but we just might have a better chance against them here.>>1746283No worries, buddy. I for one am very happy with the quality of the quest so far, so the last thing I want is for you to burn yourself out and the quality to dip. Take a few days to rejuvenate.Anyway, I have a half question, half suggestion. The Vytal Tournament characters actually start showing up at Beacon mid-Volume 2, since by then CEM is there posing as Haven students. My question is, could we potentially come across tournament students at the prom and such?No worries if you feel they're too unimportant to deal with. I confess that my main motivation here is to get some laughs interacting with ARBN, BRNZ, etc.
>>1746510>Whereas in canon Team RWBY generally went at it alone when investigating Torchwick, Whitaker's doing it with way more manpower.Imagine how much manpower we'd have if we kept building more social links.
>>1746739>Whit's Guide on How to make Friends and Influence People
>>1746510It may happen. It depends on how much I want to cover when the prom happens. If there aren't too many lingering plot threads, we may stuff the time with some Haven students.
>>1746739I hope that after this we see Liquorice(aka Neo) and interact with her.
>>1747115I think after this mission we should sit her down with ruby and try to have a conversation with her even if it means having her write her responses.
>catch up to this quest>qm takes a couple days off
Alright, how close are we to fucking our sister?
>>1750454a'ight, I'll be back when Weiss is the center of our activities againkeep me posted
>>1750469So, you wont ever be back, then?Unfortunate, but it is your decision to make, we'll miss you Anon.
>>1750661It doesn't HAVE to be Weiss, it can be Whitley or Winter
>>1750665No incest for you.
>>1755192Please don't just bump the thread for no reason. RWBY's been banned on so many boards already, and I really don't want to give /qst/ an excuse.
>>1755418Don't worry, this is a nonissue on /qst/
>>1755418Bumping a quest thread is nothing worth banning for. It's one of the most common things to do, but best kept in time where the thread is nearing page 10.
>>1755418"Banned on so many boards"? That's untrue. Generals (but not the show itself) are banned from /co/ during its off-season. And the show isn't allowed on /a/ because it's western, which isn't the fault of 4chan posters. Otherwise, I can't think of any board where an on-topic RWBY thread would be removed just for being RWBY.
>>1750442>sheer white blouse with black bra underneathUnf, my greatest weakness.
Next Thread when?
>>1766675When we agree on a waifu. So never.
