That’s a fair take. I think someone said in the replies of my last post that Weiss defeated Jacques in Volume 4 by leaving, and that this was just cleanup, which does ring true to me.
I just don’t think she can be hacked, or overwritten. Ironwood said that Penny was under his complete control, and I think he believed it, but I don’t think he meant it literally. I think he meant that he had Penny’s blind loyalty, like he did for the rest of his followers.
And, well, he didn’t. Because Penny is her own person.
I think Vernal is another example of Raven burning her bridges with people because of her belief in strength.
There is a level of respect there, you’re right. She does seem to care what Vernal thinks of her. But the relationship is very professional, kept at a distance, with a clear hierarchy and expectations.
People have jokingly called Vernal “Raven’s other daughter”, but I think they’re both right and wrong: it feels like Raven’s relationship with Vernal is her trying to have something similar to a parental one, but without all those tricky emotions and attachments Raven seems to try to dismiss.
But using her as a decoy was always going to get Vernal killed. And Raven seems to have come to terms with that. She’s not disposable, but she was always going to reach a point where this plan ended in her death.
I feel Raven ultimately stopped herself from feeling anything more for Vernal, because she knew that eventually she would get Vernal killed.
And you can see the difference later in that very Vault. Yang takes up the position as the decoy. The person who takes the attention so Raven can escape. And that moment hurts Raven, because in her eyes this signs Yang’s death warrant, and she’s too afraid to stop it.
She sheds a tear for Yang, where none are shed for Vernal. Because she hardened her heart to Vernal, but never could for Yang.
Disappointing. For me at least, don’t know how it was on Watcher’s end. Maybe she got the choirs of angels that my afterlife was sorely lacking
That’s exactly what I was thinking!
She’s a real person. Just because she doesn’t have flesh and blood, it doesn’t make her any less of a person as the other people in the world
I sure freaking am!! She’s freaking incredible, and she deserves to know! Maybe if I’m loud enough, my words will reach her in Remnant
But if it bothers you, I can try to tone it down a bit
I mean there is the whole big ass fucking whale that just invaded Atlas, I think the Protector of Mantle is going to do her job.
@mwpriddypinkie I have honestly never felt more called out in my entire life 😂 Moodboards aren’t really for anything, I suppose. They’re just another form of art that people create. Sometimes it can be for stories they’re writing, videos they’ve made, AUs that they’re working on. For me, they’re just the art I make and enjoy creating. Here is yours, I struggled a lot with it as I didn’t understand anything on your blog for the most part lol. I hope you like it, though!
If anyone else would like a free moodboard, the post to reblog is right here
And for people who are interested in commissioning cheap work, 50 cents to $2, here is where you can find my commission info!
Oh I definitely intend to continue watching the series, and I’ll liveblog it as best I can. If it threatens to flood my main I might make a separate reaction blog, but I’ll be doing it nevertheless.
I just procrastinate a lot.
Glad you’re enjoying it! You started this crazy train after all.
At this point I know everything will go to hell, but I’m not quite sure how it’ll happen.
I am not fluent in anything but English, but I do know enough Spanish, Japanese, Italian, and kinda French now? to get me through understanding the context of situations or help me out if need be.
vomit / don’t ship / ok / cute / adorable / sexy / perfect / beyond flawless / hot damn / screaming and crying /i will ship them in hell
It’s a good ship. I want one. I should steal one, it seems shockingly easy XD.
Very good points. I agree. They’re both horrible people, but man they are fun to analyze for some reason XD
P - Invent a random AU for any fandom (we always need more ideas).
Okay, umm… oh God this one is dumb but its the only thing I can think of that I haven’t already done. An RvB W.I.T.C.H. AU. For those who don’t know, W.I.T.C.H. is a Magical Girl series where five girls are chosen to guard the ‘veil’ and close portals that allow evil forces form another kingdom to invade their world. One girl has the magical Heart of Kandrakar which closes the portals, and they all have elemental powers (Energy, Water, Fire, Earth, Air). Apply that to five of the RvB boys in some kind of Modern AU setting (off the top of my head for who… Grif, Simmons, Caboose, Tucker, and Donut) and… well, chances are we’re doomed. Maybe I‘ll try to expand on this one day haha.
A - Ships that you currently like a lot. (They don’t have to be OTPs because not everyone has OTPs.) Friendships, pairings, threesomes, etc. are allowed.
Okay, ugh… Grimmons in RvB, Bumblebee in RWBY, Rapunzel/Eugene in Tangled: The Series, and trying to remember them all is going to break my brain.
R - Which friendship/platonic relationship is your favorite in fandom?
There is… too many to list. I guess the main one right now is Ruby and Penny in RWBY.
T - Do you have any hard and fast headcanons that you will die defending?
Nah. I certainly have my headcanons, and some I cling to more strongly than others. But it’s just that, headcanon. It’s just for fun. So I won’t really defend them that much, jut put them out there and discuss them if asked about it.
Y - What are your secondhand fandoms (i.e., fandoms you aren’t in personally but are tangentially familiar with because your friends/people on your dash are in them)?
Steven Universe, Bojack Horseman, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, The Magnus Archives, probably a few others I can’t recall ATM.
So, you all can absolutely make as much fanart, fanfics, etc as you want. In fact, I greatly encourage you to, because that stuff is just great fun.
I can also retweet/reblog your works too, and that’s absolutely 100% okay, and does not interfere with any contracts.
So feel free to tag me in or send me links to those creations and I’ll check them out/share them whenever I have time!
Also, thank you for the compliment! I greatly appreciate it!
mwpriddypinkie replied to your photo “Listen so this is a REALLY good PR move and a great shot and…”
Penny is the ringbearer. And she still hiccups when she lies, so when she says she’s happy for General Ironwood for finding true love she’s hiccuping all through the speech. (I do also want her to call him Generuncle Jamie, but that’s mostly because of another fanfic collaboration I write a lot for)
okay, Penny hiccupping her way through a wedding toast is PHENOMENAL
Is there a fanfic version of this?
@mwpriddypinkie Not specifically (as this started out as a drawing challenge for myself before I made it public five years ago), but the given prompts are pretty versatile and can be used for fanfic! Plus, as the graphic states, the prompts don’t need to be followed.
The main goal is to create something RWBY related every day for 30 consecutive days!
