volume 6 is one of my absolute favorite rwby volumes, and ‘alone in the woods’ is one of my absolute favorite episodes of the show, but THIS ONE SCENE IN PARTICULAR always fucking gets me. qrow spends a large portion of this volume lashing out and being (justifyingly) frustrated over their situation and horrifying new discoveries, while memories of his past rain down on him. put yourself in his shoes for a sec:
he has lived the majority of his life trying to keep it together and be the best man/huntsman he can be, even though he feels like nothing more than a nuisance in the lives of his loved ones. even when ruby sets out on her dangerous journey, he only allows himself to help her from a distance.
then the MOMENT he lets his guard down, the moment he accepts himself as a part of the team, the moment he finally fulfills the role of a GUARDIAN and knows that he’s VALUED BY OTHERS, everything falls apart. the worst news imaginable are laid clear in front of everyone, and he realizes that everything he’s done up to this point has practically been for nothing.
this is qrow at his lowest point ever. “i’m not the hero i thought i was, the world is doomed and i’ll probably only make it worse by existing” is ALL that’s going through his mind right now. and since he already feels this tired and useless, it’s no surprise that he was an easy target for the apathy. so he resorts to drinking his mind away, of course, because the only thing he feels like has control over now is his ignorance.
then the apathy are killed, and everyone is freed from their grasp. but qrow is still heavily affected by all that alcohol. he yells at ruby and weiss as they pull him away against his will. he has no idea what’s going on.
UNTIL he sees the apathy burning alive, staring back at him with emotionless, deadly faces.
even at this drunk-off-his-ass state, the SECOND he sees this, his mind clears up. look at how terrified he is. he’s FULLY AWARE that he just spent this entire time drinking alone in a cellar while everyone else was fighting for their lives, and now he feels like a bigger failure than ever before.
he couldn’t save the world. he couldn’t even save a few kids, including the niece he promised himself to look after no matter what. but worst of all? despite everything that happened, THEY were the ones forced to save HIM.
and they managed.

"Is this really necessary, Yang...?"
Jaguar XJ 220 - 1992
"The XJ 220 was developed from a V12-engined 4WD concept car, unveiled in 1998. Approximately 1.500 deposits were taken. Engineering and emissions requirements resulted in significant changes to the specification of the XJ 220, most notably the replacement of the V12 by a twin-turbo V6 of 3.498 cc developing 542 hp and a RWD concept instead of 4WD Yet is was one of the most expensive production cars at that time. As a result, many buyers choose not to exercise their purchase options. A total of just 275 cars were produced between 1992-1994. It's name is pure Jaguar tradition: 220 refers to the top speed in mph, or 354 km/h."
