[Continuation of 19.]
Fandom: RWBY
Pairing: Ilia Amitola/Blake Belladonna
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: Slight angst

Summary: Progress such as this should not be rushed.

~~

It had been so long since habit—rather than fear—was what woke Ilia. Still in bed, she stretched and took inventory. No tears on the pillow. No knots in her stomach. No cold sweat staining her sleep shirt. Instead, there was lightness in her chest where guilt used to be a permanent fixture.

Since she’d woken up before her alarm, she got up and switched it off ahead of time. Padding down the hallway, the sound of shifting in her living room caught her ear. Must be Blake. Ilia poked her head in the room to offer a “Good morning,” but soon was at a loss for words.

Blake was holding Ilia’s remaining Grimm mask. The box she was about to put it in was one Ilia had seen before: a wooden chest filled with old White Fang memorabilia. Between confusion and indignity, she couldn’t decide which to feel first.

Prompt: 26. “How about you trust me for once?”

Fandom: RWBY

Pairing: Ilia Amitola/Blake Belladonna

Rating: Teen and Up

Tags: Hurt/Comfort

Summary: Ilia pushes herself too far.

~~

Ilia wiped the sweat from her forehead. Her lungs burned from the exertion of training. Even so, she mentally listed the drills she still needed to perfect. Deciding the next course, she gripped her lightning lash.

Ilia lunged from side to side, dodging imaginary gunshots from the training dummy. With a one-handed cartwheel, she launched herself into the air. On the descent, the lash wrapped around the dummy’s midsection. Touching down, her right ankle rolled. Ilia stumbled a few steps to the side. She tried to push through it, but the existing aches and fresh pain brought her to the ground.

It took some effort, but she managed to sit up. There was no ice around, so Ilia reached for her chilled water bottle. Well, it would’ve been chilled if it wasn’t bone dry. Damn it. She tossed it across the room in frustration. 

“I knew it.”

Ilia’s eyes snapped to the door, where Blake leaned against the metal frame.

Aliens (1986)

1) Raven Branwen as Ellen Ripley (reasoning: warrior leader and also because of who I have Yang cast as) 

2) Taiyang Xiao Long as Corporal Dwayne Hicks (reasoning: Raven’s love interest and being an all-around good guy) 

3) Whitley Schnee as Carter Burke (reasoning: let’s say that the Schnee Dust Company replaces the Weyland-Yutani Corporation. In that case, it made sense that Whitley took the role of the slimy corporate exec) 

4) Penny Polendina as Bishop (reasoning: android assistant) 

5) Yang Xiao Long as Rebecca “Newt” Jordan (reasoning: Raven’s daughter. Although in this AU, Yang would be Raven’s daughter-figure) 

6) Cardin Winchester as Pvt. Hudson (reasoning: the arrogant, douchebag bully) 

7) Peter Port as Lt. Gorman (reasoning: I was thinking who among the adults could be an incompetent commanding officer and for some reason, Port kept coming to mind) 

8) Winter Schnee as Pvt. Vasquez (reasoning: badass female soldier who hates incompetence) 

9) James Ironwood as Capt. Apone (reasoning: the competent military officer)

10) Clover Ebi, Caroline Cordovin, Vine Zeki, Harriet Bree, Elm Ederne, Marrow Amin and one extra Atlas soldier as Drake, Frost, Ferro, Spunkmeyer, Dietrich, Crowe, and Wierzbowski aka the marines who get wiped out by the Grimm-Xenomorphs in the first ambush (reasoning: Atlas soldiers under Ironwood’s command) 

11) The Grimm take the place of the Aliens/Xenomorphs

———————————————————————————

Scarface (1983)

1) Adam Taurus as Tony Montana / Scarface (reasoning: minority facing discrimination, power-hungry asshole who becomes a violent leader / EDIT: Oh, I just realized, the name ‘Scarface’ could also reference the branding on his face)

2) Ilia Amitola as Manny Ray (reasoning: member of the White Fang. Also, I have Ilia as Manny mainly because of who I have Blake cast as)

3) Neopolitan as Elvira (reasoning: to keep with the themes of human-faunus relations, Elvira had to be a human character. Also, Neo is a crazy criminal, so she fit the role)

4) Blake Belladonna as Gina Montana (reasoning: one, to reference Adam’s unhealthy obsession with Blake and Blake’s initial fascination of Adam. Two, since Manny and Gina get together and Ilia has a canon crush on Blake)

5) Roman Torchwick as Frank Lopez (reasoning: Roman’s connection to Neo and Roman being a criminal mastermind) 

6) Jacques Schnee as Alejandro Sosa (reasoning: the big-name supplier, just switch cocaine with dust. Also, since Adam is the main protagonist, it made sense to have the Schnees as the main villains) 

7) Klein Sieben as the shotgun-wielding assassin who kills Tony (reasoning: works for the Schnee family) 

———————————————————————————

The Breakfast Club (1985) 

1) Cardin Winchester as John Bender (The Criminal) - reasoning: the asshole bully who harasses everyone

2) Weiss Schnee as Claire Standish (The Princess) - reasoning: the snobbish girl who thinks she’s all that 

3) Sun Wukong as Andrew Clark (The Athlete) - reasoning: this was a surprisingly hard role to fill in. Eventually, I just went with the character who I thought fit the mold of the “stock high school athlete”, which was Sun.  

4) Ruby Rose as Brian Johnson (The Brain) - reasoning: the goodie-two-shoes nerd who has trouble socializing with people

5) Blake Belladonna as Allison Reynolds (The Basket Case) - reasoning: the shy, introverted goth (well, closest to goth) girl who is seen as an outcast

Ilia: *hesitating and watching Weiss practice a bit with her rapier* Right…

Catmeleon Headcanons from their White Fang days

(because @technicallyblakebelladonna has got me having thoughts and feelings over here,,, thx)

  • Blake was ecstatic when Ilia was adopeted into the camp because she’d never had a playmate her age before. Unfortunately Ilia’s memories of her Atlas “friends” were still fresh in her mind, and she refused to even talk to Blake at first
  • Eventually Blake won her over when she caught Ilia sneaking into the camp food stores in the middle of the night after she (yet again) refused to eat at group dinner. Blake started to confront her, but when they were interrupted by the night watch checking on the disturbance, Blake snuck them out before they could get caught. The two were inseparable after that.
  • On the long trips across Remnant, they had an ongoing game where they would each try to find the best wild plants for tea. They would search along the road for something good, and whoever lost had to do the others camp duties before bed.
  • But since both of them always felt bad watching the other do chores alone, most nights they still ended up working together regardless. Sometimes they would draw out chores much longer than necessary to avoid going to sleep
  • Most of the camp were early risers, so Blake and Ilia often ended up on night watch shifts together. When the nights were quiet and clear, they’d lay together on the ground and stare up at the stars, telling each other stories about the constellations
  • When they ran out of stories they knew, they made up new ones- the stars became heroic warriors and runaway princesses who became knights, or lovers who overcame everything that tried to tear them apart, or great heroes that sacrificed everything for their cause. The stars became their own grand world, shared only with each other.
  • After Blake left, Ilia avoided ever looking up at night.

Sunspots After the Rain pt.1

Blake is pregnant. Sun’s driving her down the highway in a beat up sedan that the nun at his orphanage handed down to him in her will. The ghosts of yesteryear equally fills the spaces in his car as her grip on his arm is like a vice he resists just so he can drive straight. Her startling dependency reminds him of their days dating back in Beacon.

They dated a week after he carried her to the nurse. It was years back and she’d been with other people since.

They aren’t in love.

The kid isn’t even his.

Things seemed fine at first. She’d been pushing and pushing and the doctor between her legs had been urging her on with the same “good, good” so often that the word started to sound weird.

Which was a nicer distraction from the grip on his digits as Blake actively merged his appendages together while she screamed. He, too, wanted to scream from the iron grip on his fingers but he didn’t want to make her worry about him. He’ll just strain his lungs later.

Then they pull out the little bloody bundle of joy and suddenly Sun can feel his fingers again. They hadn’t had blood flow in half an hour. He’s surprised they aren’t bruising… Or atrophying.

With the snip of an umbilical chord, and a quick inspection (cause when does a baby NOT scream like a mandragora when it’s fresh out the womb), the tired circles of Blake’s eyes widen at the sight of her baby girl, its slick little cat ears folding over the fragile scalp.

The sight isn’t pretty. There’s blood, she’s drained, they’re all a mess, and he’s smiling through the aching fingers, but it’s still the most beautiful thing he’s ever seen.

Blake names her Salene Wukong. For him. Them. She wants to give them another chance.

She goes into ER that night.

The flatline echoes in his ear harder than any shellshock.

He hates funerals. Not for any reason other than he isn’t alone.

Only a fraction of a fraction of the people here actually cared about Blake. Her widowed mother, her friends Nora and Ren, her surviving teammate Weiss and her brother Whitley, and Tukson, the guy who ran her favorite bookstore.

The clerk still belonged there more than most.

Most everyone else are satesmen who met her in passing and had an interest in Menagerie, some avid fans from her world-saving days who got here purely out of their donation to the memorial, and loose family acquaintances who could barely spell her name.

Then there’s Joan Arc who has to attend the funeral of a sister-in-law she never met and spent the night being reminded of the brother she hasn’t quite grieved enough for.

Joan mostly belonged at the bar down the street. Sun and the rest join her. They get along.

When the program is over and people start leaving, a small circle gathers around Blake’s grave. They say their goodbyes.

Sun only walks in when even they’re leaving, catching a few hugs from his friends and a particularly tight squeeze from Kali. Salene passes back into his hands so she can greet her mother too.

He says his goodbyes and Salene tries to reach for his cheeks like she’s trying to wipe his tears.

Ilia comes out of nowhere. Wordlessly she grabs onto his arm and cries into his sleeve.

Joan visits often. Salene has Jaune’s hair, and maybe his jaw, but most certainly his eyes.

They’re a piercing blue. The color is staggering and vivid, might even see it in a crowd. Sun stares at them sometimes with her.

There’s a fondness they share. He misses Jaune too.

Sun read somewhere that Salene meant subdued or calm. He was wrong, of course, (it meant heaven) but it was no less accurate.

He’d heard nightmare stories about crying babies that keep you up at night but Salene was always quiet. It didn’t stop him from staying up anyway. No one tells you that a calm baby is equally terrifying cause you’re always worried if it’s sick or at least BREATHING. Sometimes it cries when it’s hungry, so despite three square meals, he’s still worried if his quiet little girl is starving.

He realizes that he’s just called her his baby girl. He cries at edge of the crib. This time it’s of joy.

One night she decides to cry. He peels an eye open to go to her but then she’s quiet again before he’s even left the sheets. He panics and runs through the beaded blinds only to find Ilia over the cradle.

Salene is in her arms, being bounced with a bottle held to her lips.

Sun’s surprised to find Ilia smiling.

He doesn’t even question how she got into his house.

Salene and Sun are like puzzle pieces that don’t quite fit. They do if you squint and push the pieces hard enough together, but the picture never looks complete. She has his hair, you could say, and that’s enough for people to think she’s his in more ways than one.

He’s content with loving her for all the reasons that matter.

That doesn’t factor in when she’s ten and some kid teases her for not having a mom.

He hates the cruelty of children, but he more hates that he couldn’t find her a mother in the ten years she’d been alive.

He hears Salene giggling one night.

He peeks in and sees Ilia chatting her up on her bedside. Slipping away, he sneaks back out into the hall.

It’s minutes later when he finds Ilia sitting on his island counter. He doesn’t ask why she comes. He only offers her a drink.

They spend an hour drinking together.

She sleeps on the couch. So does he.

<–>

Due to some increasing insomniac fears, I’ve decided to post part of my incomplete work to have something done before I sleep tonight.

This will be a four or five part series which I’ll try to etch out to completion before long.

I would have liked to dedicate this to RazorRambles but I very much doubt senpai would notice me.

So my original mental concept for this was exactly that, Cardin tries picking on Velvet and immediately his entire team just throws him on the floor and starts kicking him in the ribs.

I haven’t decided yet whether to make it a dark comedy or a serious fic, mainly because what happened to Adam and Ilia in their canon backstories was just not funny, but the whole ‘Suitors of Blake Belladonna’ schtick is hilarious from a certain perspective.

In essence the story is this, Adam and Ilia have been de-aged to 17 to match Blake, they are both aggressively trying to court her and she is equally aggressively trying to convince both of them that they are just good friends. She decides to leave the White Fang and go to Beacon. She convinces them to leave, not because they particularly want to OR because they forgive humanity for the wrongs against them, but because neither of them trusts the other one around Blake. Essentially Blake weaponises their crushes just enough to get them out of a toxic environment. She promises they’ll all be on a team together, then grabs the first person she can find (Lie Ren).

Cardin is convinced that his new partner is a stoic badass with a cool ‘one-eyed ninja’ thing going on, whilst Nora is delighted to have a partner who can charge her up at a moment’s notice. Adam and Ilia are seething.

Featuring such plotlines as: The Jaundice Arc! (Ilia: Why the fuck are we bothering with this?) The White Fang Arc! (Ilia and Adam: *nervous sweating*) And the Dance Arc! (Pyrrha: Oh, no one’s invited me to the dance. Adam: I will take you myself if you just shut up about Jaune!)

Will not ‘flick the racist switch’. Cardin’s attitudes are deeply ingrained and will take time to unlearn. Will actually validate Adam and Ilia’s anger toward humanity and how they can move forward from it. CAIN will also not be taking ‘centre stage’, they’re very much a supporting act for the protags.

No ships really planned out, but safe to say it will not be Tauradonna or Catmeleon. 

No snippet for this one as its still in outline stage, all I’ve got is plot points.
