    Here, a SFW thread for all those RWBY fics, and more to the point, where one can bitch about the series without tying up the NSFW RWBY Rec thread.

    So what do you think will happen to Cinder by the end of Volume 4?

    Ideally a beatdown of epic proportions from RWBY and JNR.

    Putting these here because they have nothing to do with lewds.

    Rabbits aren't quite as good as cat, but they see in the dark better than humans do. Their senses of hearing and smell are much better than a human.

    Monkeys have better vision than humans (it helps when climbing and jumping around treetops, among other things), but their sense of smell is weaker, IIRC. The rest of their senses are mostly the same, though they might have better hearing, I don't remember.

    Calling them separate species is likely more of a cultural thing than an explicitly scientific one.

    Crossposting from the first thread.

    ... Seems pointless. If you want to keep your sexy-Rwby pics seperate from the actual discussion, why not just make an nsfw rwby-image thread?
    Now we've got two discussion-threads for the exact same topic.

    All you've done is split the discussion between a thread where anything can be said (nsfw) and a thread where you have to censure yourself.

    I don't see any reason to ever use the second thread.

    TLDR: NSFW threads aren't just for nsfw topics, they're for everything including nsfw topics.

    I thought the faunus were the product of genetic manipulation and molecular biology in the Old World before the Cataclysm turned it into Remnant?

    So in addition to the worldbuilding nerds going apesh*t over this new information, the geography nerds in particular on SB are going apesh*t, because:

    There's a lot more to it, but you can just check the thread out if you want to and search from the most recent threadmark: https://forums.spacebattles.com/threads/rwby-v-its-also-a-thread.430178/page-194#post-27013653

    So to unpack this:
    • So although there's definitely still scale issues, it turns out the map is a lot less bullsh*t than a lot of people thought. Not bad for something whose first draft was literally a wadded-up ketchup-stained napkin
    • The kingdoms are actual countries, not sprawling Texas-sized megacities, with plenty of smaller settlements.
    • Menagerie is home to a lot of faunus, but isn't recognized as a kingdom. Probably racism involved, but might also be because Menagerie is very decentralized or something?
    • Aquatic Grimm are a thing (or at least some kind of threat is present in the oceans), but isn't a serious threat to Vale itself because the coastal waters are too shallow. Speculation is that it's a continental shelf or something, and a lot of people on SB are kicking themselves for not thinking of that.
    • Qrow confirms that there are defenses on the borders of the kingdoms, so Vale in fact was not completely demilitarized until the Tin Man and his army of toy soldiers showed up.
    • Those colored symbols representing towns and villages don't seem to represent the borders of the kingdoms themselves (Vale is not lit up on that map, for instance), but rather seems to show their "sphere of influence," so to speak. In other words, the green-colored symbols are at least nominally affiliated with Vale and likely have some kind of deal to help them get assistance from Hunters if Grimm start becoming a problem.
    • Mountain Glen is not an isolated incident, rather it is the norm for what happens when Vale tries to expand past its current borders.

    Man this thread is remarkably empty.

    Anyway looking for good fics. Mostly things like Jaune being mistaken for badass, Interesting crossovers where a character appears in RWBY, or fics of Jaune getting some sort of really weird semblance. Comedic oneshots are also good.

    That's because it was created when a person got pissy that canon was being discussed in the NSFW thread.

    Huh - could've sworn it had more to do with the third round of arguing over season three's ending, dislike of characterisation/pacing, and the fact that it kept covering the same thing.

    But what do I know, I'm just a lurker.

    Speaking of Cinder, I've been working on an SI RWBY story and one of the main plot-points is that Cinder is stopped at the Vytal Festival. You see, the protagonist of the story knows about Cinder and the calamitous end to the Vytal festival, but not any of the specifics. It was spoiled for him via internet, but he's really only watched his way through seasons one and two, enough to give him a rough idea of what's going on, along with a few spoiled (and possibly wrong) specifics, but not a whole lot else. He tries to warn people about Cinder anonymously, but it... doesn't go well, to say the least. He has no proof, no evidence, and revealing himself in front of Ironwood is practically begging to get locked up in an interrogation room somewhere. Not to mention Cinder has far greater control of traditional lines of communication than he realizes.

    So in the end he has to track her down himself using a unique quirk of his that let's him 'see' Aura. Cinder, obviously, is a blazing beacon to his senses, not exactly what you'd call 'subtle.' Now normally this would be a squash match, the difference in skill between the two of them is immense. Cinder could likely kill him without even breaking her stride, but, there's one thing he has going for him... his Semblance. Simply put, his ability allows him to change the molecular state of both himself and unshielded things without harming them; he can make them solid, liquid, gas, or even other, more esoteric states of matter, though there are limitations. With this ability so long as he has Aura Cinder can't affect him physically, as he can just flow around her attacks. Furthermore, he can use this ability offensively, though he doesn't do so often, for reasons that will soon become self-evident.

    So Cinder is faster than him, stronger than him, more skilled than him, and leagues more powerful, so then how does he stop her? The answer is simple... he cheats. Realizing he doesn't have a snowball's chance in Hell against her he does something terribly desperate; he turns into a gas and attempts to choke her. Cinder turns up the heat seeking to destabilize him, and though he already knows of this weakness and has taken steps to negate it, she's powerful enough to simply burn her way through his resistance. Getting even more desperate he turns himself into a thick sludge and forces himself into her lungs. She resists, trying to bite down, but he just goes through her nose, and when she tries to gasp for air he freezes her mouth open.

    And so he binds her with other pieces of himself, taking away her leverage and shocking her with hits of Energy Dust to keep her from struggling all while Cinder slowly chokes to death in her own personal coffin. In the end it's horrible, it's messy, it's even a little bit silly if you're into gallows humor, but the protagonist finally manages to take out Cinder only to belatedly realize that he has a lot more problems to deal with than just one arrogant, power-hungry uber-bitch.

    From there you can imagine that things go wildly off the rails, and the protagonist has to deal with the consequences of his actions. Not a fix-fic, but at the same time not really a deconstruction of a fix-fic either. The characters are people, and people make mistakes, but many people also try and fix their mistakes. The protagonist is just the silver bullet, the nail that won the battle; he was the right person, with the right abilities, who was there at just the right time to send things spiraling down a completely different path, with both good and bad things resulting from his actions.

    That bugs me too, especially when someone post images like ten times daily.

    Anyway, on Faunus issue, I actually make it so that JWMM Adam have WORSE sight than humans in the dark, in fact, Weiss also fell into this presumption of all Faunus being good at nigh vision until he confirm otherwise.
