more haunted house au! tagging @zacs-of-rwby again

  • ozpin and glynda are tense bc glynda had a miscarriage. both are quietly devastated by it, with glynda throwing herself into her work and ozpin shutting himself away from the world. in a way, taking care of the ghost kids is bringing him back to life. 
  • ozpin ISN’T ozma’s reincarnation in this au, they just look alike, like the mom and the dead bride in disney’s haunted mansion movie.
  • the younger kids, usually oscar and ruby, sometimes forget that ozpin isn’t their father, so ozpin will occasionally hear a little voice yell “daddy!” when glynda isn’t around. 
  • the kids are occasionally visible, but entirely nonverbal. ozpin isn’t sure if its trauma bc of their deaths or just how ghosts work.
  • Ozpin is very good at determining which invisible ghost kid is which. like
    *chandelier shakes like someone fell to the ground above it*
    Ozpin: Nora! Stop horseplaying with Pyrrha!
  • ozpin writing a guide to how ghosts work and everyone slams it on amazon reviews.
  • ozpin and glynda have guests over–like, glynda’s sister is a really snooty mean lady–and the kids prank them out of the house. they throw things at her, they keep her up at night, she thinks she’s going insane, while ozpin is in the background, sipping hot chocolate and thinking “this is what you get for visiting without warning, BRENDA.”
  • *Yang, pushing brenda out the door*
    Ozpin: Don’t let the door hit you on the way out!
  • the kids make a game out of trying to get glynda to believe. ozpin is the referee who “enforces” the rules like “no direct contact” and “no writing in spilled flour or other substances”
  • Ozpin wants to get to know the kids better, both because he’s living with them but also because they’re dead kids, he wants to help them move on. So he starts to research the family outside of ozma’s journals. 
  • He discovers that the police originally suspected that ozma killed the kids due to the unnatural way they died and also because he killed himself right after the interrogation the police did. ozpin immediately discounts this theory bc ozma loves his kids so much
  • no one really suspected salem; she was considered a socialite and beloved by the nearby town, but her disappearance after the deaths was weird. ozpin’s research shows no sign of salem, not even appearing in other cities. She just… vanishes. 
  • and ozpin starts to doubt the “death by carbon monoxide poisoning”. he calls up the real estate agency to ask about the furnace and learns that the previous furnace was old, but in great condition. Plus, why didn’t ozma and salem die too? gas leaks everywhere, not just into the kids rooms. 
  • So ozpin decides to ask the kids. He originally tries a spirit box but either it doesn’t work or the kids don’t like it so there’s no response. 
  • Of course, it could also be the nearing anniversaries of their deaths that’s making the kids silent. 
  • He decides on a ouiji board and try to contact them then, a few days before their death day. Only… he doesn’t contact the kids.
  • “Is there anyone here right now?”
  • “What is your name?”

I misread @zacs-of-rwby‘s halfway house ozpin au, so here’s a haunted house au

  • ozpin and his new wife, glynda, move into their new house in the countryside. the opening is nice and idyllic, but you get the idea that there’s some underlying tension between the two that isn’t addressed right away. 
  • The house is big, almost a mansion in size, but they got it cheap bc it needs to be renovated and also people died on the property. (imagine the Barnaby house with no extra buildings.) 
  • The house used to be owned 100 years ago by Ozma, a really rich man who happens to be a near carbon copy of Ozpin. Ozma was married to Salem and had 9 adopted children, because Im involving all of team rwby, team jnpr, and oscar, suck it.
  • They lived happy lives until one night, all the kids mysteriously died. Decades later, the causes of deaths were eventually listed as carbon monoxide poisoning, since there was no visible causes of death, but after the kids died, ozma killed himself and salem disappeared (with the nearby town believing that she had just taken ozma’s money and ran).
  • Ozpin and Glynda start their lives in the house pretty well. some weird things are happening, like floors creaking, doors closing at random; stuff that can be attributed the house settling and being in a new place. The tension between Ozpin and Glynda starts to settle as they settle into the house, but Ozpin is pretty reserved at this point.
  • Glynda would probably be a home renovator in this au, so she’s just going through the house, seeing all the ghost activity, going “So, new floorboards, incorrectly installed doors, we should probably check for mice too…”
  • Ozpin finds Ozma’s diary and is just blown away by how much this man loves his children. Ozma would just go on for pages about Blake’s love of books, or how Nora led the kids into building a swing set that fell apart, or how he took the older kids hunting and Oscar and Ruby wouldn’t talk to him for a week. 
  • And he starts to notice how weird stuff in the house isn’t really… normal. Like, he entered the library in time to see a book thrown across the room. or all their dishes appearing out on the lawn over night. or occasionally feeling punched or shoved when he walks past the remains of a home gym that hasn’t been renovated yet. 
  • He doesn’t think it’s ghosts until he sees little seven year old oscar just… sitting on the second floor landing, staring down at him before blinking out of sight. 
  • The house is haunted by the dead kids. 
  • Ozpin is a little freaked out, but isn’t that scared. the kids haven’t done anything harmful, they’re just… ghosts. that a real apparently. he freaks out a little until he finds one of the drawing that ozma kept from the kids childhood and realizes that they’re still just kids and they’ve been alone for a while. 
  • So he starts small. Talking with them a little, baking chocolate chip cookies because he knows they were Ruby’s favorites, framing and hanging the old drawings like he’s their dad, stuff like that. Glynda thinks he’s crazy, there are no ghosts, but this is the most animated Ozpin’s been in months, so she lets it slide. Meanwhile, ozpin finds more drawing done in pen ink and frames those too.
  • He starts trying to find solutions to the ghosts frustrations. He figures the library ghost is probably blake and that she might be bored from having read all the books in there, so he gets her new books. but the book throwing continues, so he thinks that maybe she can’t touch the books long enough to finish reading them and buys her a cd player and a bunch of audio books for her to play, and that works.
  • He insists Glynda renovate the home gym even though they don’t work out and there’s no more ghost punches.
  • i just… really like the idea of ozpin being a dad to his ghost kids.

I love that the FNDM is adopting Ozymandias as the name of the KOV, and I will be disappointed if it turns out not to be his actual name

Its funny how people act like Oscar is an orphan with them making Ren and Nora or Oz be like the parent(s) he never had. I know it’s all in good fun but it feels like people do seem to forget that he already have a parental figure in the form of his aunt whom from what very little we’ve seen (or rather heard from her) seems to be a loving family member whom Oscar most likely got his sass from. Not to say Oscar can’t have more then one parental figure, I’m just sad there isn’t much fanart depicting what everyone think Oscar aunt looks like and diving into what their relationship is like since she seems to be Oscar only family member and he no doubt misses her.

Ozma: Lol

Another reason why I couldn’t be an Ozma is that I’m way too salty,

if someone implied I wasn’t actually a person and then shoved me into a wall I would bring it up at every opportunity, milking the absoloute hell out of it for as long as I could:

“can you pass me that book please”

“can’t you just get it yourself”

“am I really ‘myself’ though, or am I just using this body-”

“how are we going to take irowood down”

“you could shove him against a wall”


“or maybe give him an existential crisis, that was effective last time”

Im not to proud of this one. I made one draft and then forgot about it but essentially i built a whole Pantheon where i tried to make every character a different god.

Here’s the only stories i have and underneath i’ll put who is god of what.

Creation Myth: same as show with Brothers, when they left they made some human’s deities to rule instead (Ozma and Salem), all gods were once human (EXCEPT children) granted godhood by either Oz or Salem 

Ozma & Salem: After he died Salem went to the First Gods (the Brothers) to revive him, that whole dispute brought the gods’ attention to all of humanity and they decided they didn’t want to deal with it so they made both Salem and Ozma immortal and told them it was their problem now. Immortality changed Salem and Ozma was forced to banish her by the other gods. Ozma’s body was destroyed in the original dispute and now when he wishes to walk among the humans he has to take a host, and is typically referred to as the last host’s name until he has another host that gets famous because of being a host to the god Ozma. Ozma is unable to purposely choose his host, contrary to humans knowledge. 

Ozcarnations: Ozma’s original human body died he so he cannot walk in it, therefore needing a host. Oz walks among humans in order to remind himself of why/what he rules over after immortality changed the Salem he knew. Humans do not know he does NOT pick his host. He is stuck with his host until they die and his host merges into him upon their death

Maidens: same as show but instead of old wizard it was the god Oz

Ruby – goddess of sunsets, duty, responsibility, adventure/travelers. She is a child of moon and sun gods
Weiss – goddess of talent, music, kindness, inner strength
Blake – goddess of justice, equality, shadows. A protector of women and runaways,
Yang – goddess of the sunrise, commitment, protection, familial love, grudges. She is a child of sky and sun gods
Jaune – god of healing, recovery, energy,
Nora – goddess of unconditional love, thunderstorms/lightning, warriors,
Pyrrha – goddess of war/victory, honor, warriors, competition. She now guides souls of the fallen to the underworld
Ren – ?????
Ozpin – head god, god of illusions, dust, order, good intentions,
Salem – head goddess; goddess of the underworld/dead, evil, darkness, magic. She is the mother of monsters, fell out of favor with the gods and now plans her revenge, souls of the damned are basically Valhalla, hates humanity 
Cinder – goddess of wildfires/natural disasters, revenge, volcanoes. Human turned god by Salem
Mercury – ???? Young god, turned himself immortal (mistake?), works for Salem as a messenger/eyes
Emerald – goddess of deception and wealth. Young god, made the mistake of tricking Cinder and now works for Salem (time sentence)
Watts – god of intelligence/wisdom, crafting,
Tyrian – god of poison, murders, assassinations. Brings souls of criminals to fill Salem’s underworld army, known to be crazy and unnerving,
Summer – goddess of the moon, destiny, travel(ers). Job is Ozpin’s warrior, felled by Salem (why the moon is shattered), creator of the Silver Eyed Warriors
Taiyang – god of the sun, fire, light, routine. Drives sun over world, reports anything suspicious to Ozpin
Raven – goddess of clarity, truth/honesty, power, fear, east winds, hurricanes. She is a sky god, twin god, worked for Ozpin before seeing through his illusions (giving her the clarity and truth) and becoming a independent entity who spend much of her time in hiding
Qrow – god of misfortune, secrets, loyalty, skill, second chances, west winds. He is a sky god, twin god, Ozpin’s messenger/eyes, kinda treated like Hades (death vs misfortune)

So real quick. Rewatched the lost fable. And totally noticed. That when the gods leave. The god of light turns to dust and the god of darkness breaks the moon.

Almost like the god of light never really left.

Which would explain the fables about the faunus. He created them. It would also help with fact that there seemed to be a big time gap between Ozma returning and humanity dying off. I mean he returns to full civilization. When men rose from “dust” like how long was that?

He left the world “godless” or did he.

its almost 6am y’all know what that means! more Cloqwork aus! this time its Royal flavored ;3c

- Ozpin is the prince of Vale, with Ozma as his father acting as king, and Oscar acting as his lil brother. (the babiest prince)

- Qrow is part of the Branwen Tribe still, a thief boy through and through.

- To ascend to the throne, Ozpin is expected to have a partner. Salem, a princess of a neighboring kingdom, was originally set to be his bride but after an accident that caused Ozpin’s leg to become lame, he isolated himself for months on end, even years. No one saw the prince before, but after that, he became merely a whisper to many.

- fortunately! He’s not dead! To prove this, King Ozma holds a royal ball, where any and all are allowed to attend, to hopefully find the prince a bride to marry and eventually ascend to the throne.

- Qrow’s objective the moment he hears about this? Swoon the prince, get in nice and close, then let his tribe know when it’s time to strike to steal all sorts of valuables right from under his pompous nose.

- Ozpin, on the other hand, is not happy about having to attend this event. His leg aches even after all the work he’s done to keep it more mobile, he doesn’t wish to talk to these upper clsss nobles who do try and approach him, he’s sick of the curious stares and whispers from those who don’t, and he’s just exhausted already. He heads outside for some air.

- Then he crosses paths with our main man, Qrow, who offers the prince a polite bow and a kiss on the back of his hand after a brief introduction. Ozpin is immediately flustered by the act. No one has done that all night. It’s…flattering.

- The tribe went all out to make sure Qrow looked the part of “a prince from a far off kingdom, a tad north of Vacuo”. Even his cape was repaired enough for it to look regal.

- Ozpin and Qrow spent the rest of the night conversing together, back and forth, and it was pleasant. Ozpin was happy to have found someone who seemed genuinely interested in him as a person and not this mysterious prince once locked away in a tower. Qrow is surprised to find the prince is actually…quite the kind, gentle soul. Nothing like the pompous snob he expected him to be.

- Together, they both made the night worth remembering, and Qrow promises to return if the prince would let him. Ozpin says he’d love if he did, and the night ends with another kiss to the hand and farewells, with Ozpin watching Qrow leave into the night with an expression he hasn’t worn in a very long time etched across his face. A smile.

- Qrow, meanwhile, is trying to tell his sister about the valuables he found but all he can think back to was hearing Ozpin’s laugh and seeing his golden eyes sparkle and watching him thumb at his cane when he gets flustered.

This ask has been sitting in my inbox for over a year but I’ve been working on this fic since October!!! I wasn’t sure how to approach this story at first, and in the end I strayed from some of what you requested, but I hope you enjoy it nonetheless! It’s too long to post even under a read-more link, so I’ve attached the AO3 link here!

Title: Greek Tragedy


“Now, onto the more pressing question. Why did I select all of you? Some of you may have met with one of my professors, others with me personally. I can only tell you this now- I have seen potential in you that I have not seen in others, and should you complete your time at this school successfully, I will have a great mission for you in the future.”

He paused and looked around the room. Oscar must have been imagining things, because he thought he felt the gaze linger on him for an extra second longer than the rest of the students.
