Come One, Come All; Welcome to ANOTHER ICARUS RISING QUEST

As you feel your mind begin to slowly awaken from your slumber, you feel strange. Well, no; That wasn’t exactly correct. You felt fine, it was your sleeping bag that felt strange. It was certainly far warmer than it had used to be, and that's saying something because you know for a fact that you had left it unzipped the evening prior.

It was also softer, in two ways.

The first was more of the texture of the bedding itself, it was certainly far more pliant than usual, cradling your head far better than it had previously. Perhaps it was that comfort that had allowed you to lull yourself to sleep. The second texture was what it was partially covered in. The material was deceptively soft and it was at this sort of time that you wished that you had your hands still to simply run them along it.

Instead you opted to do the only thing you could, which in your tired mind was nuzzle closer to it.

It was only when you felt the soft touch of a clearly non-male hand that you decided to open your eyes and see what a combination of hell and heaven must of looked like. Though for a moment you had to say it was a strange sight.

It was mostly orange, orange and yellow.

Your brain is still in a haze, even with your eyes looking on the orange, yellow and pale white expanse before you. Part of your mind should be saying that this is a terrible thing, as you realize that one Yang Xiao-Long is currently cradling you into her. She has since abandoned her sleeping bag and had clung to the nearest source of warmth; you.

As you try and rouse your mind to panic the scent of lavender is added to the barrage on your senses, as is the slow, steady beat of her heart. You try and fight the urge to sleep, to enjoy the moment in the dim light. You don’t even know what time it is but before you can even process the potential time yet more is added to you.

She beings to slowly run her hand through your short, unkempt locks. You swear you can hear her murmuring something about a ‘Zewi’ before murmuring off into unintelligible.

It’s got to be a dream...it has to be. Reassured by this you close your eyes and slump into the warmth of her, drowning in the scent of lavender and the warmth of the buxom blonde.

You’re awoken by a gentle nudge, and a weak whisper of “hey, Tin-man. Get up.”

It startles you and your first reaction it to jerk to a sitting position when you realize the voice wasn’t Khrone’s. It was far, far from Krone.

It was Yang.

She was staring at you, her hair having been swept over in front of her as she sat up, slowly brushing her hair. It seemed more like a nervous reaction than a deliberate one and you could have sworn you saw a dusting of red on her cheeks. You must have been hallucinating. The sun is barely peaking over the horizon, and fumbling for your scroll you see it’s only six A.M.

No one else was awake which begged why was she wa-

It hits you like a thunderbolt.

The dream was no dream, it was far from it. Immediately you bring your hands up in an apology but she swats them down before looking down, the dusing on her face evidently a blush as it gets deeper.


“It’s fine...Seriously.” She stumbles her words, still quiet.

It unnerved you to see her like this. Not because it was scary but because in the time (however short) you’ve known Yang, she was NEVER timid, shy or anything of the sort.

You do your best to ignore how pleasant the events of the prior evening; Because you have to force yourself to accept that it’ll never happen again. Yang was far above your ‘level’ as Khrone would say, so you should just count your blessing and bury it now. Because if you didn’t it would grow and fester and…

It would be Violet all over again.

So you swallow that bitter pill and decide that with both of you awake you may as well pass the time. Stretching your arms (something you hadn’t needed to do since you had your prosthetics, but the feedback was always a semi-pleasant experience.) you sit up further and ask.

“So…” You drawl, getting her attention, her blush having finally faded at least. “Good morning?” You manage, a weak smile crossing your lips.

She smiles in kind, mouthing returning the greeting before reaching for her scroll, looking at the time like you had. “Didn’t expect you to be a morning person.” You say, biting back the small part of you Khrone had corrupted that wished to say more.

She nods, wiping the sleep from her eyes and chuckles “I’m not, I need my beauty sleep after all.” She insists, also stretching her arms and shoulders, unintentionally giving you an eyeful of her bust.

You hate to admit that you looked, but you did, and what a sight it was.

“See something you like, Tiger?” She suddenly asks, a predatory grin on her face.

Shit, you were caught.

You try and find a response, some kind of means of ignoring the fact that you were caught dead staring. Looking her dead in the eye you lose yourself for a moment, though you aren’t sure if it's because of her smile or her eyes. Now that you are seeing her up close you had never taken the time to really appreciate them

They reminded you of Violets if only slightly, and it brings those needle pains to your heart to think of it. But you lose yourself again as you see all the differences. You don’t see the usual hints of superiority or haughtiness. What you do see however roots you to the spot. You see fear, insecurity and nerves behind all the confidence and bravado of the question. It’s something you hadn’t really expected to see in those lilac orbs.

In a strange way you found it beautiful.

“Well?” She asks, crossing her arms beneath her bust, grin still set like stone.

You decide to go for it, but what comes out of your mouth while still looking into her eyes surprises you.

“Yeah.” You mumble, as if in a dream. “but I saw something better.”

“Oh?” She asks, seemingly surprised and confused at what you begin to say.

“Your eyes”

You don’t know what you did to make her face do what it does, but it makes you happy. Far happier than you should be given your pathetic defense. Instead of trying to call you out or even tease you further here is what you see.

The grin on her face has been replaced with a small, indescribable smile. Her eyes have widened considerably and the blush that once had vanished had returned with a vengeance. You don’t even know if she said anything in response but after a moment she quietly excuses herself and rushes (See:Runs) to the bathroom.

What a strange morning.

Opening up your Scroll you open up a notepad. Before you had left for Beacon you and Khrone had spent some time transferring the leather bound notebook in your bag into his scroll. During the walk over he had been kind enough to send them to you. After a few seconds a few folders sat in front of your eyes.

The Project Helios Folder was filled with schematics and all forms of technical documents. You always loved the Helios project because if it worked the possible uses were incredibly useful. Though it would involve another brace to be made for your working right foot, but again, the trade offs.

You would happily trade a bit of land speed for the ability of flight.

Your biggest issue however was the fuel and power plant. You knew no sort of dust or mixture that would last either long enough or powerful enough to sustain the flight for any meaningful amount of time. Until you did the project was a faraway dream at best.

Maybe some fire dust and and gravity dust could help with staying aloft. It'd have to be a Hella slow burning antigrav effect with bolts of upward propulsion. Guess that would make it more a slow-fall with an upward dash, though.

Project Prometheus was perhaps one of your more guilty pleasures, as if you were to go through with the project you’d potentially be the only person to have the amount of power at your disposal. By adding a pair of Dust and reaction fluid canisters along the back of your arms you’d be able to design and mount a pair of massive phased dust energy projectors.

Otherwise known a Plasma Cannons.

You’ve been absolutely giddy about the idea ever since you had managed to figure out a formula for it with Khrone. He however had been far less giddy as a massive hole appeared in his favorite shirt. But at the end of the day you had found another problem.

The reaction was a runaway reaction, once it starts there was seemingly no way to stop it.

Shutting the folder you then skim through Project Lazarus Files. This one was more of a side project of both you and Khrone, as while it was already mostly done you had never been quite capable of perfecting: True Neurological connections to the outside of your prosthetics; While yes you did have the ability to ‘feel’ things it was not a True feeling. They were phantom sensations, of softness, of warmth, of anything.

Last and perhaps the Creme de la Creme of your work over the years was Project Chariot.

Ever since the beginning of the fall of Icarus, much of the military budget went from the program to their robotics budget. You and Khrone found the idea of robotics and fully mechanical soldiers as perhaps the coolest thing to ever happen to you since being huntsmen. That was, however until you wished that you could have that kind of power.

And for the next seven years you worked on it.

In reality much of the other projects were in part fragments of Project Chariot. Though on its own project made up for itself, with each other project you could make it that much better. You had recently heard in Beacon that there was a new armor program coming out of Atlas.

It was such a shame that you were going to try and beat them to it.

You settle in and begin looking over the layers of schematics and dioramas. The one thing that was nice about the scroll, if you had to admit, was that you could project them in an area around you. For a moment you contemplate if you should try and find a more private place to work but considering that you’ve got maybe an hour and half before anyone was going to get up you decide against it. Unwrapping your left arm you turn it so the palm is facing the sky you will the limb to stay still as you set your scroll down and slowly peel off the armor plating along the inside of your arm.

Reaching into your duffel bag you pull out a few strips of silicon and cabling, a torch and an assortment of other tools.

This is going to suck and you know it, your artificial nerve endings exposed alongside the central shaft and pistons for your wrist. Wadding up the exposed bandages you stuff it into your mouth and bite down. Come hell or high water its time to get to work.

You let out a muffled groan as you feel the heat of the torch on your exposed nerves. It wasn’t as bad as you’d imagine, but it still is a discomforting feeling. With the external receptors heated up enough you take your soldering gun and begin the laborious and tedious labor of soldering new conections and receptors. While you had already figured out how to make the nerves, as Atlas had the basics done before you had left, it was your current predicament that made it difficult.

As you were attempting to make a mesh of feeling externally you had to wire them to the old nerves while they were still attached to make sure you didn’t mess up.

You had only been working at it for fifteen minutes when a gentle poke hit you on the shoulder. Turning off the soldering gun you look to the offender and discover Ruby, her sleeping cap over her head as she seems to stare at the metallic guts of your arm.

Opening your mouth to speak the wadding of bandages drops from your mouth.

“Yes?” You ask, wincing slightly at the feeling of cool air against your quite literally open nerves.

“Doing some early morning maintenance?” She asks, sitting down beside you to inspect the schematics on your scroll.

“Something more of a...personal project.” You admit, before going into depth to explain the process and your reasoning to it.

Suprisingly enough, she offers to help you.

You smile at the girl and nod.

“That...would be great actually.” You say, though your voice is clearly showing your surprise at the offer. This would be the first time you’d let anyone other than Khrone see, let alone touch your internals like this. However you bunch up the bandages and hold it in your still functional hand, before gesturing the girl to sit in front of you.

She complies and sets your scroll on your knee. While she asks a few simple questions (to you) such as temperature of the material and how to do certain cross feeds she set your tools ahead of her and when she first got to work you placed the wad back into your mouth. Though the pain was certainly evident, you found it far more surprising at her ability to work on something so foreign with such speed and skill.

You close your eyes to try and dial out the pain when suddenly you feel a gentle pressure on your arm and a feel a series of pops and snaps. You go to open your eyes but you are given a sharp “shhh” and swatted, your eyes staying firmly shut.

However you cannot ignore the warm sensation of something hand shaped and snapping your eyes open.

Ruby is completely focused on your arm, brushing her thumbs and hands along the exposed metal of your limb. You are of two minds at this point watching this. Because in forty-five minutes (including the fifteen minutes you had worked) she had managed to complete what you figured would take days.

There was enough time to work on the other one too.

You feel a lump in your throat as you feel this sensation of skin on “Skin”. Eight years. It’s been EIGHT years since you had felt anything like this. It almost brings tears to your eyes. Ruby has yet to notice you as she continues to admire the craftsmanship of the limb but finally looks to you and probably sees the absolute hurricane of emotions that are dancing in your eyes. She tilts her head, clearly unaware of exactly what she had just done.

“Did...did I do something wrong?” She asks, now fidgeting with your hands.

You can’t help it as you laugh, though with the lump in your throat it comes out choked and the tears finally begin to fall. Your body heaves and shivers as you feebly manage to begin explaining yourself. You explain that you haven’t felt a thing for the last eight years and you try desperately to compose yourself.

You’re lucky that no one wakes up.

Before you can even ask Ruby looks to you and smiles. “Do...you want me to do the other Arm?” She asks. You can only nod weakly.

She miles at you, before reaching up with your bandages and gives a slight giggle “You’ve got a bit of a smudge.” She says, wiping the few tears away before getting to work.

In short order Ruby gets to work, and again you just keep your eyes shut, reporting every now and then letting her know you could still in fact feel the connectors. But just like before in what feels like a blink of an eye she's done, that warm feeling of her hand on the external plating of your limb.

Before you can even stop yourself you have the girl wrapped up in your embrace, trembling and quietly saying “thank you” over and over. You couldn’t even describe how you felt, how the feeling of her pajamas against your arms felt. It was like going from color blind to suddenly seeing color.

It’s at this time that Yang finally returns, dressed and looking the same confident self she had always been. She’s clearly confused as why you’re doing what you’re doing. But she just shrugs it down and begins to roll up her sleeping bag.

Looking at Yang and remembering the morning you had experienced you tried to stop yourself, but your hands are currently on auto pilot. Ruby seems utterly horrified and has her whole body practically snaked around your right hand.

But it’s too late.

If you had to describe the feeling of the Blonde Bombers golden truffles between your fingers you would spend the next week trying to do so. Having lost so many years of sensation you had literally nothing else to compare to the feeling of her hair. And for the rest of your years it would probably be this that you compared similar things to, not the other way around.

Yang seemed to freeze at the touch, craning her head to stare at you as you continued to gently brush and run your fingers along the natural flow of her hair. Before she could even ask you begin to laugh, softly at first before going hysterical. Untangling from Ruby in what feels like a second you grab her hand and get to your feet, falling flat on your face as you forgot to put your brace back on. However even that is a minor joy as you feel the cool marbled floor of your fingers. Getting up you revel in the feeling of actually feeling the dials and knobs in brace and put it on.

By the time you make it out of the ballroom and out into the open air you’ve still to let go of the Red Reaper, the smile practically breaking your face as you run to the grass and fall into it, running your fingers through the ticklish material.

After losing yourself for a few more minutes of tactile fascination, you come back to your senses. Ruby is looking at you, smiling a small, bashful smile. She’s well aware of the part she’d played in the sudden giddiness you now had. However as much as you wanted to continue to just touch things and memorize the wonder of such sensations, you became slowly aware of the strangeness of you running in your pajamas with a girl ALSO in her pajamas outside.

You blush at the implications.

Standing up you take Ruby’s hand, taking a moment to memorize the feeling of the flesh against your hand before helping her up. However as you walk you make sure to let go of it before you enter. You don’t want to give the wrong impression after all.

Collecting your clothes you are given directions to the locker room and are also given a locker to match. Setting your bag and scroll inside, you quickly hit the showers while the rest of the boys were still waking up in the ballroom.

You pause to turn on the water before you look at the previous forty-eight hours and ask yourself if you will keep doing what you’ve always done. Will you hide your arms even here, in the shower? They were your arms, you had every right to bare them in the comfort of a shower.

At least, that's what you keep telling yourself.

You’re still nervous, even as you continue to slowly remove the gauze that you had religiously and obsessively applied to your metallic limbs ever since you left Atlas. You’ve always been uncomfortable with the attention they brought; And even if it was just in your head it was an uncomfortable sensation. Yet even as you mulled and whined to yourself you set the two identical wads of bandaging aside and turned on the water of the shower, sinking into the joy of feeling warm water on your metallic limbs again.

(I will continue tomorrow, Honestly i’m exhausted but i’ll be here and in the discord to talk)

Stepping out of the shower you were quick to towel off and begin dressing. Though as you were doing so it became clear to you that people were staring at you. Though you hated it and you had told yourself that they would do this, you couldn’t blame them.

Though you rarely stopped to think about it, in addition to the rather large and obvious pair of metallic limbs that replaced your arms; They were not the only things that stood out on your bare torso. Because in addition to your limbs was the large and jagged scars along your shoulder blades where the Deathstalkers Pincers had grabbed you.

Throwing on your shirt you felt at least a small shred of comfort as the onlookers suddenly found just about everything else in the locker room. Putting on the last pieces of your outfit you looked at the the two bundles of gauze you had brought with you into the changing room. This had been before you told yourself that you would stop using them, and once again you were at a crossroads.

>Wat do.

You feel conflicted as you look at them. You don’t want to go back on your own word and just be a coward. But at the same time you felt naked without them on your limbs, however you eventually come to (at least, in your mind) a compromise.

You’re going to wrap them up, but only to your hands; After all changes just don’t happen overnight.

And so you settle yourself into the comfort of your routine you take the time to really feel the rough gauze against your arms as you bound your limbs up, forcing you're still nervous mind into accepting the deal you had struck. Five minutes later you’re set and with a quick shrug of your shoulders you return your coat to its resting place on your broad shoulders.

It would take some getting used to, but you’d manage. You had to.

You decide that with the start of the day you’d take advantage of the newest comodity of civilized living: Free breakfast. Well, no, that wasn’t quite true; as the food was covered in the cost of enrollment. But you could literally make money, so that wasn’t an issue; Therefore free.

Strapping Lybras to your back you make your way to the makeshift cafeteria and do your best to ignore the cacophony of students around you as you gather what you would see as the essential breakfast: Eggs, Bacon and some toast. You’re enjoying the sensations, even the silly ones like the cutlery in your hands.

So much so that you don’t even hear Khrone sitting down beside you, a similarly stacked tray of breakfast to yours.

“Your hands are unwrapped?” He asks, though his surprise is muffled by the toast he is chewing on at the moment.

You nod, chewing through your eggs before swallowing. “I sort of have to, considering the morning i’ve had.”

“The Hell are you on about?” He asks, looking at you “Did you get laid or something?” He teases, though you can’t help but lightly blush given your morning.

You chuckle, if only he knew what actually went on. However you shake your head and tell him simply “Lazarus is complete.”

He freezes, eyes going wide as he looks at your hands as if they had suddenly become a pair of Ursa.

“No way.”

“Yes way.”

“How?!”


“Ruby.”

“You mean to tell me that Red managed to do all the connections in what? An hour?”

“Hour and a half, but yeah, that’s exactly what i’m telling you”
“Bullshit!”

“Ask her.”

“I will!” He challenges, before his grin returns “I’ll have to ask her what you traded for it though.”

You freeze.

“What?” You ask, surprised he’d even suggest such a thing. You know he’s getting underneath your skin, he’s always had a knack for that.

“I mean, you let her see some of your most sensitive bits, SURELY you Got something in return.”

You’d love to say something, but a looming sense of dread washes over you.

Before you can even respond and deny what Khrone said you hear a laugh, a deep and easily female laugh. Your heart sinks and every part of your brain goes into lockdown. You’ve never heard this laugh before but you already know exactly who it is. You know EXACTLY who it is that’s laughing at you.

“I don’t know A, you really think a girl would go for a guy like him? His hands must be like ice.” The voice says, and at that Nickname you regret predicting such things. You see Khrones eyes narrow at the sound and he turns, though you are rooted to your chair in a combination of anxiety and fear.

Violet Boreal, The Purple-Eyed devil with an angel's face.

“You know I haven’t gone by that nickname in years, V. Ever since I left, you KNOW I hate it.” Khrone says, you can feel his leg bouncing beside you as every muscle seems to tense in his body.

“Oh come off it, I’m just trying to find somewhere to eat and I couldn’t help but overhear you. So Lucy, did you really manage to make it safely to a base. Because we both know you struck out with me.”

You can’t even respond. Your jaw is firmly locked and your entire body is currently in anarchy. Your brain tells you that it isn’t happening, even as you feel her fingers slowly pressing against the bandages along your arms. You hate yourself for shivering at the touch.

“What’s wrong big guy? Afraid of little old me?” She says, her breath on your ear. It’s clear that Khrone is just about to snap when a voice calls out from only a few feet away.

“Back off, bitch. Or is your boy-toy still icing his bruised ego from yesterday’s show?” Yang declares, arms folded across her chest.

You feel Violet straighten up, turning to face the newest addition to the conversation and you can’t help but feel yourself shrinking further into yourself, shoulders hunching.

“What? Are you just jealous that you rejected his offer? I mean look at little Lucy here, does he really look like a winner?” She mocks, chuckling. “Trust me, i’ve known him far longer than you, he’s pathetic.”

Yang simply snorts “Yeah, and i’ve talked to you for less than a minute and I know you’re just a trashy wanna be model. Spoiler hun, this ain’t the place for pretty faces.”

All of this however is interrupted by Nora sitting down across from you, an unreasonable stack of stack of pancakes and an unhealthy amount of syrup.

You struggle to comprehend the sudden hurricane of shit going on around you. First Violet, then Yang and now Nora is eating….way too many pancakes to be healthy. Why THAT many pancakes, there’s no way that someone could love pancakes that much, could they?

Your panic addled brain begins to shift into overdrive as gears start spinning all on their own. Vague memories dance in your ears and a plan begins to form that is so nonsensical there is no way it could work. Well, no way it could work if you didn’t have the sinking suspicion that Nora might just be nonsensical enough.

Seeing the two Girls continuing your argument your plan roars into action. Grabbing a piece of toast you throw it towards Nora and announce “Nora, catch!”

Though not exactly what you expected she does so, head craning up and mouth opening to devour the poor piece of falling carbohydrates. With her distracted you quickly lash a hand out and with a golden glow turn the whole stack of pancakes into a puff of oxygen. Quickly retracting your hand you do your best to look casual as you continue to eat your food.

By the time Nora has finished chewing (which is far quicker than you expected) she looks down at her now clean plate and the sight nearly breaks your heart; she looks like she’s about to cry.

“But..m-my pancakes! Where are my precious, fluffy pancakes?!” She cries to herself, looking up and around the table in a desperate search.

It was time to begin phase two.

Giving a slight cough she looks at you and nearly darts across the table. “You! Did you take my babies?!” She exclaims, hands coming up ready to grab you.

Quickly you shake your head, hands raised in submission before speaking “No! God no I’d never! I.” you falter, partly from the fear of the girl, and the previous encounter with Violet.

Leaning up to Nora you turn a tiny bit and point to the aforementioned Violet, even though it hurts to even look at her. “I think she took them.

The screech of sheer rage that followed is a sound that would forever haunt you as Nora leapt clear over the table and grabbed Violet. Yelling about her pancakes and that she could not talk to ‘Renny’ to make more (you assume she means Ren) and demanding compensation. Violet seems utterly shocked and Khrone beside you is trying desperately not to cackle, having seen your little ‘vanishing trick’; even Yang seems amused at the sight, and in the corner of your eyes you can see the rest of the small group you’ve met standing there in stunned horror at the sight of the furious Valkyrie simultaneously mourning and avenging her ‘babies’

Violet seems to think any pancakes would do, though Nora is completely against it, and you watch with a deep amount of satisfaction as Violet is dragged back to the locker rooms to get Ren.

You’re quick to finish your meal, welcoming the group of strangers you now called acquaintances as you watched Nora return,pouting. She was clearly upset still and the lack of pancakes were probably not helping.

Seeing this you decide to do something to make it right, even if Violet did deserve it. Excusing yourself from the group you quietly make your way through the cafeteria line and take the next ten minutes waiting. Nora had cleaned house of the pancakes they had made and thus had to make them fresh.

However that may make this gift all the more sweet.

By the time you return much of the table is digging into their respective meals, except Nora. She instead is pouting and holding her head in her hands. That is of course until you walk up beside her, setting the plate of Pancakes in front of her as well as a small cup of syrup you had managed to procure.

You find yourself suddenly in a bear hug, a squealing Nora thanking you for finding her babies (how she doesn’t know they are new pancakes baffles you). You feel your lungs burning as you attempt to reassure her it was nothing, gasping for air as your acquaintances look on.

Jaune, Ruby and Khrone are doing their best to not laugh out loud while Phyrrah is giggling alongside them. Yang is...you don’t know how to describe the slight smile and glare she’s giving.

You can feel the pressure of blood in your head getting worse as your lungs cry out for sweet release. “Ren!” You wheeze, though instead of a powerful scream it sounds more like a wheezed death rattle. “Rennnn!” you continue, desperate for freedom.

“Nora, your pancakes are getting cold.”

“My babies!” she cries, letting you clatter to the ground and sitting back down and digging into the mound of pancakes.

You gasp and wheeze for breath, looking up at the face of your savior before giving him a thumbs up.

“Come on tin-man! Time to get up.” Comes a voice, hoisting you up.

The person is clearly too tall to be Khrone, but who is it?

Looking over you see Yang and you give her a quick smile before you remember that morning and the vow you had made to yourself. You quickly (and subtly as you can) make a tiny bit of space before thanking her. She waves it off with a grin “What can I say, i’m used to saving damsels in distress.”

You sigh before looking at her a grin on your face.

“I wasn’t in distress, Nora simply takes my breath away.” You say, the pun already hurting your brain-cells.

You can already hear Ruby groaning at the sound of it, though Yang manages a laugh before you take your seat with the rest of the group. Though your breakfast was already done you just make idle chat.

Sitting next to Ruby you open your scroll and show the Red Reaper the list of folders that made up the rather large arsenal of projects you and Khrone had thought up over the eight years you had spent wandering Remnant. After a few minutes of looking through (and very excited squealing) you ask Ruby if she’d like to work on some of them with yourself and Khrone.

The offer is barely out of her lips before she's saying yes, practically vibrating in her seat at some of your ideas.

Of all the projects she seems to share an equal passion with you was of Project Prometheus. This naturally made you cheer for a quick moment, much to Khrones despair. He always HATED when people liked the project, as you insisted you could fit a smaller version of it into his leg. He repeatedly told you that it was stupid, but you were at this point you were determined to do it.

Agreeing to meet again once initiation was done you sink into conversations with the rest of the group. It’s clear that you’re all nervous at the coming test. Is it just a quiz? You doubt it, there is no way they’ have something so simple.

Naturally theise fears begin to manifest in the conversations, as all of you begin to debate on the potentials.

“Maybe we have to build a weapon with limited materials!” Ruby says, excited at the prospect

“Maybe it's a tournament?” Khrone adds, smiling at the idea of combat.

“Maybe we need to fight a bunch of grimm in a deadly scavenger hunt!” Nora cheers, hands in the air.

You have doubts at such a convoluted test.

You pause for a quick moment, letting the hype build as you stay stoically silent. Once you’ve managed to get the attention of the table you say, trying desperately not to split your face.

“Clearly they will have us do the most dangerous test of wits, skill and prowess.” You say, watching as Ruby, Khrone and the rest all lean in to hear your clearly well-thought out theory.

If only they knew.

“Rock..Paper...Scissors.” You finish, biting down on your lip to keep yourself from bursting out laughing as you slowly watch the completely stupid idea finally fully manifests itself.

The series of groans you hear is only drowned out by the sound of your maniacal laughter. Before you can even hear the chorus of jeers the voice of Glynda Goodwitch cuts through on the speakers of the cafeteria announcing that all first year students were to report to the cliff face of Beacon.

That includes you.

Making your way out of the Cafeteria you see a small, but sizable group of equally nervous huntsmen in training making their way there. Though many seem confident it’s clear the fear of the unknown is above all of you.

>>1782852

Although still within a larger group you stick with Khrone, Ruby and Yang eventually meeting you in line. Ahead of you the cliff face looms like the very edge of all civilization, as even beyond in the sea of green trees what should be a sight of wonder is instead one of dread.

Why were you coming here? Of all places in the Academy why would your initiation have you setting off to this place. Whatever the reason it is, you’ll soon find out. You look to Khrone and a quiet vow is made between to you.

Whatever come, the two of you would endure and help each other however possible.

By the time you reached the platform you saw both Glynda and Ozpin, the latter holding a larger tablet scroll and looking over a series of what appears to be launch catapults. Before you can even dread to think about it, it is confirmed.

You’re asked to stand upon one of the many platforms.

“Now, you may be wondering what it is you’re doing here.” Ozpin begins, looking up from the scroll to look at the assembled line of students; some (such as Jaune) looking far more nervous than the other.

“But as you know, Beacon has a bit of an initiation to determine the teams that our prospective students and test the skills of those who apply.” He begins, walking along the line of students.

“The following test is….a simple one. There is a series of ancient ruins within the forest below. You’re to retrieve them.” He continues, the sound of his cane ruffling the grass behind you as he does so.

“Some rules however. The first person you meet will be your partner for the next four years at this academy. The second is that you should refrain from attacking or killing other students, and you will be monitored. Other than that? Happy hunting.” He says, and you feel your stomach lurch as to your left you hear a large metallic noise and the sound of a student screaming.

Before you can even turn to see what happens, the plate beneath you rumbles and you are flung from the cliff and towards the forest below

The howling of wind and the cool rush of air startles you as you let out an involuntary yell of surprise. However Icarus taught all of its students many things, and one of them was reacting to improbable events. As you continued to hurdle through the air, the power of gravity rapidly pulling you towards the ground, you considered this to be such a moment.

This was one of the few times you truly hated having such heavy objects attached to your body. As while others continued to go further out you had already began to plummet. However as much as it was a curse, it was a blessing because they were capable of absorbing the damage with ease. They were also strong enough to survive such a thing.

Curling yourself into a ball you brought your arms around your brace and pumped as much your aura into the rest of your extremities as you felt comfortable doing. This was going to suck, but hey. Super hero Landing!

You impact the ground with force, the vibrations of it shaking your leg and making your teeth rattle in your skull. However other than some dust and ocassional dirt, you were more or less completely fine!

The only way from here was forward, and after standing to your full height you did just that. Aside from the occasional rustle of grass and trees around you the only other sound was the thud of your brace. However this seemingly tranquil peace was anything but, because the list of ambient sounds did not include any animals.

Meaning there were Grimm in proximity.

Keeping a hand on your trusty axe you continue to move with speed. You have no idea who you’ll be paired with, let alone if it’ll be one of Them. Pushing that thought to the back of your mind heard the crackling of branches both above and to the left of you and quickly begin debating on which to focus on first.

I feel like the sound above has better odds of being a person than a grimm, while to the side it could easily be either. I feel like checking the side has a smaller chance of getting ganked

Tensing your leg you watch as a trio of Beowulf burst from the woods, clearly hungry for blood. Taking a step forward you bring your axe up, burying a blade into the lead beast's throat before pulling it clean, using the flat of the blades to block a particularly vicious swipe before kicking the beast in the chest and clearing some space.

Not giving it a moment to rest you rush it, knocking its head back into the tree that halted it before swinging your axe against its exposed neck. Pulling the blade clean you watch the head of the beast fall clean of its body before turning to face the last Beowulf.
However instead of seeing a tall lupine creature waiting to kill you, you see a much more pleasant sight. Well, the Beowulf is still there, it’s just dead and on top of it stands the buxom blonde bomber you had spent the evening unintentionally with.

‘So much for trying to give the girl space’ you think to yourself as her Lilac orbs meet your Jade ones.

You really need to stop doing this, you chide yourself. But here you are, staring at this lilac brawler; slack jawed in the middle of a forest surrounded by monsters and other heavily armed teenageres. And yet for all of that you couldn’t help but draw it all in and smile. Yang, amazingly enough, doesn’t seem to notice your weird look and smiles back.

“Well, howdy there, partner. Fancy meeting you here in a forest like this!” She cheers, walking up a slight saunter in her step.

You do your best to ignore her hips and manage to reply “Uh...yeah, nice of you to drop in.” You say, gesturing to the corpse that she had just stepped off of.

She nods, chuckling “So looks like you’re stuck with me for four years.” brushing her hands on her jacket. “Not going to be a problem, right Tin-man?”

Your brain listens to the following statements and you can’t help return to the morning, however not the pleasant parts. Instead your mind thinks to the promise you had told yourself; to give the girl space until you let your (you’d call it something less implicit but it’s the only word that comes to your mind) fascination with her fade.

Or, more correctly, bury it deep in the confines of your head and make sure it never comes back up for air.

However while the internal debate rages on you smile at her and shake your head. “Trust me, If four years with you is trouble. I’d hate to see hell.” You assure her before you look deeper into the woods.

You take lead as you rush through the brush of the woods, your axe providing you extra reach in case of ambush over Yang's gauntlets. You’ve settled into short conversations between the brisk encounters you face, with mostly weaker Grimm coming in small packs, though that doesn’t surprise you. Being so close to an academy for huntsmen you would be shocked of anything greater than Ursa or the Occasional Death Stalker was around. However just as you say this the hissing of a King Taijitu and the sounds of gunfire.

Nodding to each other, the two of you pushed yourselves harder down the wooded path. A Grimm like that would be difficult for even one huntsmen, let alone two! Neither of you had to question what the plan was with that in mind.

What you had NOT expected to see however was one Jaune Arc running for his life while Pyrrah Nikos peppered the snake-like grimm from a distance. It seemed that their strategy of bait-and-Lure was effective, but with Jaune continuing to dodge rather than hold the beast in place it was taking time.

Well it was time to change that.

You dash forward to jump, and beside you see Yang crouch low; Your unspoken battle plan going forward like poetry in motion. You press your foot into the ground and let the hydraulics kick only to feel yourself sink in up to the knee. The soft ground beneath you had given way and had trapped you in the muck.

This wasn’t good.

Yang, oblivious to your predicament lands a flurry of strikes before backing way expecting your coup de grace. Only to look back and see you trapped with the Snake now slithering towards its far more vulnerable prey.

This was VERY not good.

You are not going out like this! You refuse to. Snarling your teeth you sheathe your Axe and bring your hands up, palms open. You couldn’t move yet if you wanted to, so you had only one real option.

Take the Boarbatusk by the horns, as they would say.

The impact shakes you to the core of your being as your hands grip into the beast's massive fangs, the force of the impact creating a trench along the ground that your brace was in. Any slower and you’d have been grimm food but thanks to your durability you’ve managed to halt the thing it its path, its fangs rattling at the various shots being made by both Yang and Pyrrah.

Finally on solid ground you try again and this time are rewarded with a loud hiss as the pressure in your brace kicks off, rocketing you into the air, the beast's fangs still firmly gripped in your hands.

“Now!” You shout, and with a glint you see the sight of Jaune and Pyrrah rushing at the beasts now exposed neck, blades drawn. Letting go you arc into the air and reach for Lybras, Yang already firing shells at its other exposed head

Firing the blade towards the heaven you shoot down for the beasts reared back head like a bullet, blade coming down upon its skull with a shockwave. The moment the blade makes contact you concentrate, the blade of your axe glowing gold as the skin and bone begin to turn silver. As your blade sinks deeper you begin to slide down its back, peeling and melting flesh as you go. Coming up upon the other side you stop your transmutation, coming to a halt at the other beasts second skull.

For a few seconds more the beast writhes and twitches its skin sloping off as it was no longer continual piece, having been split by your blade. By the time you manage to dig the blade out the rest of your companions are staring at you in shock. Jaune seems absolutely terrified, Pyrra is simply stunned.

And Yang?

“You know what they say Tin-Man! More than one way to skin a snake!” She insists, laughing.

She was still Yang.

And jesus christ I just realized our semblance works on living material. Or at least grimm. They're probably different. I know we talked about this in an earlier thread, but I can't remember if Weaver weighed in with a final answer.

As long as the end result is a pure material, I can't see why what it used to be matters

Jumping down from the beasts slowly dissolving carcass, you flick Lybras clean before returning her to your back. Coming down from the high, you smile a small amount to Yang before moving over to the other two huntsmen.

“Are you alright?” You ask them both, Looking between the two of them.

Pyrrah seemed more than fine, even as you asked the question you could see her eyes darting around the clearing in case more grimm returned. Jaune however worried you; He was heaving and wracked with sweat which seemed unfitting. Any Huntsman worth their salt was more than capable of grueling hours of marching, running and even combat. To see Jaune so worn down was something that did not match up with what he SHOULD be possible. And that’s when you see it.

Blood.

Anyone else would have missed it but his hands were bleeding, no doubt from blisters or minor scratches from rolling. On anyone else it would have made sense but on a huntsmen? On a huntsmen they’d only bleed if they wanted to bleed or had no aura.

And from the look of Jaune he didn’t look like the kind who liked to hurt himself.

You’re snapped from your observations by two separate affirmatives. One was strong and confident, the voice belonging to Pyrrah. The weaker voice. You already knew the answer to that.

Just what was going on here?

Ask him if he's run out of aura. Seems like a reasonable question to have in-character.

And this will be why we never ever use it during a match on someone.(Unless they have robotic limbs probably) Granted with our tech smarts and our arms we will probably not have to worry much about that. I just realized that we can block yangs punches and we are wanting to put a plasma cannon on our limbs.

Honestly, the fact the Jaune survived as long as he did in canon without aura is kind of amazing.

Getting speared to a tree during a mid-air launch and surviving unharmed is just miraculous.

To be fair he's probably only alive because Pyrrha's such a good shot.

Or the gods of Remnant only keep Jaune alive so he becomes Punished Jaune. Also known as Jaune Wick

You were born, but you weren’t born yesterday. This kid somehow managed to get to this point in his life without an Aura. HE SOMEHOW MANAGED TO GET INTO BEACON WITHOUT AN AURA.

WHAT?!

It is at this point that the words Ozpin had said to you ring into your ears. His admission of ‘other Unnamed individuals’ who he had been tempted to reject. Jaune looks terrified, and you can’t blame him. He wasn’t ready for this life, this world and yet he had the courage to march into this.

At least he had until the last fight.

For a moment you’re angry, no, furious. This punk was willing to get himself killed for what!? But you remember when you used to be so young, wanting more than anything then to be a hero; To stand up to the bullies of the world and make it a better place and that flame of anger is replaced by guilt.

He just wanted to follow his dream, just like you.

Were you really going to fault him for this?

“Jaune.” You say quietly, catching both Jaune and his partner's attention.

“Y-yeah?” He asks, his eyes not meeting your gaze.

“We need to talk, in private. Now.” You say, your voice serious. Pyrrha steps closer to you but you hold up a hand; You aren’t in a social scenario, you’re in the wild.

You’re in your element and you refuse to be superseded.

“We can discuss what i’m about to do later, but you either let me do this and spare Jaune your pity or Yang's insults or I do it right here, right now. You interrupt.

She can probably catch on but says nothing.

>Wat do?
>A. You don’t have time, unlock him here
>B. You don’t want everyone knowing, find someplace alone to do it.
>C. Explain and do it later.
