Ironwood, to the Ace Ops after Clover dies: I would offer you moral support, but I have questionable morals.
They’re supposed to be incredibly powerful, but they’ve lost
against RWBY and Penny twice now. I’ve seen a few people asking why so I
thought I’d just throw my ideas into the mix!
Off the bat, I think there’s three key points to this:
- The Ace Ops have been operating in an idealistic, well funded scenario for years
The Ace Ops do not consider each other friends
The Ace Ops have a complex towards team RWBY; they underestimated them and got emotional
Under the cut (that I really hope works for mobile users!) I’ll go into a bit more detail
Marrow: I took the garbage out the night before garbage day, in case you were looking for an overachiever.
Gotta love how Marrow is the only one to vocally express and acknowledge that he was holding back in that fight in Volume 7 and even in the most recent one against Penny and later Ruby, Weiss, and Blake
everyone thinks penny would join the mains filling the missing spot on team jnr (
though oscar probably already filled that void) and tag along in vacuo, and thats lovely and wholesome but im thinking marrow amin
Why Didn’t Marrow Just Use “Stay”
Let me put it this way. If you’re gonna to throw the first punch, you’d better be confident in what you’re fighting for.
Marrow, do the sexy thing and leave the ace-ops
It’s worth it
half the reason Marrow is so hot is that he’s got the sexiest possible form of moral conflict going on
tfw you’re a good person but you’re realizing you’re being used for evil purposes and you’re grappling with it because doing the right thing would mean going against everything you’ve been raised to believe but that would be the only way to be true to yourself and your moral code but you’ve worked so hard to get here and it’s so hard to admit that it was all for nothing and also additionally you’re a just a REALLY attractive man—
The fact that Ruby was specifically replying to Marrow and trying to appeal to him because he was the only one of the four who was at all worth debating though
Harriet might be an angry person overall but Marrow has been bottling his rage for years just waiting for someone to actually deserve it. If they get into a fight, Harriet better win it quickly because as soon as he makes the transition from “oh gods what am I doing what am I doing” to “FUCK ALL OF YOU AND YOU IN PARTICULAR”, it’s pretty much over.
To say I Love Marrow would be an understatement
He’s such a good boyyyy
you can just tell marrow is questioning his loyalty and i can’t WAIT for him to go rouge (🤞🤞). do it baby. you can do this. you know this isn’t right.
ALSO WHAT THE FUCK DOES WATTS WANT WITH PENNY’S WEAPON? I’VE GOT A BAD FEELING ABOUT THIS SCOOB.
Harriet: Don’t forget to lift with your legs.
Marrow: Yeah, I know how to lift. I’ve been carrying this team the entire time I’ve been here.
SIR WHY ARE YOU SO PRETTY
STOP SMIRKING AT ME GAD DAMN
