Tai, in patch:
the world of remnant if poly str was canon
some things may change, but you’ll always have a family somewhere
qrowtober 2020 day 21: family
writing team strq shenanigans at 1 in the morning is fun
This was inspired by a fanmade STRQ picture from RWBY Reddit:
Tai: Ok Team, let’s look good for the photo!
Summer: R-right (Oh my gosh he so close! I can’t believe he is touching me! Did he always looked so well?! Why am I sweating right now? Qrow, Raven help me!)
Raven: I don’t know why, but this camera man irratets me (also why is Tai touching my shoulder, and why does it fell so calming?)
Qrow: (Doesn’t say anything, just wants to look edgy and cool)
I wanted to make an entire fic that was a collge/university au of RWBY that focused on team STRQ (this one, actually) for the purpose of presenting this one scene. Obviously, I didn’t get past the first chapter and my writing style wasn’t as great then.
This scene is still gold to me though.
“So… you’re into anime right?” There was not a hint of her usual reserve in Summer’s voice as she bore her silver eyes bore right into Qrow’s soul. He quirked an eyebrow.
“Um… is yes a bad answer?” Summer coughed, her expression still neutral as she sauntered over to him, pressing further even as he backed up.
Soon, the woman stood over Qrow as he fell back into his chair. Her imposing figure’s face shadowed by the light coming in behind her. Never had the man ever felt such fearsome power resonate from any human being. As if sensing this, Summer leaned closer, the light illuminating her face as her mouth began to curve upwards along with her arms. Gods, he was so fucked.
Students near the dorms swore they had never seen Qrow Branwen run faster or look as terrified as he did that day. Nor seen Summer Rose laugh as maniacally as she pounced after him.
Trailer: *confirms team will try to repair Amnity this volume*
My STRQ Lovin Ass: *Imagines Raven seeing broadcast of shit goin’ down in Atlas and teleporting back into the story for V9 after we learn more about Summer in V8*
My STRQ Lovin Ass:
Qrow: We can never let anyone know that we got one-upped by Tai.
Qrow: Take it to the grave?
Raven: To the grave.
Qrow: This conversation never happened.
Raven: I don’t even know who you are.
Qrow: …That’s hurtful, you took it too far.
Raven: What a weird thing for a stranger to say.
Qrow: I’m starving. Does anyone have any food?
Taiyang: Hold on, I think Summer keeps some snacks in her purse.
Taiyang, rummaging through Summer’s purse: Hey Qrow, what does a pregnancy test look like?
Qrow: Like a thin piece of plastic with a thing on the end of it.
Taiyang: Oh okay, so this is definitely a knife.
Tai: You’re offered $50,000 but if you accept it, the person you hate the most in the entire world gets $100,000. Are you taking it?
Qrow: Why would I not want $150,000?
Summer: How are you today?
Qrow: Please don’t make me think about my life.
Yang, to Raven: Well Mom, I appreciate your input, and your critisism on everything I’ve ever done, but I’m going to have to disagree with you based mainly on the fact that you dress like you’ve only ever shopped at hot topic.
Qrow: … And I promise I will never drink again.
Taiyang: You’re drinking right now!
Qrow, holding a glass of whiskey: Where did this come from?
Raven: Did you know that atoms never touch each other?
Raven: And that we’re made of atoms?
Raven: That means we’ve never touched anything in our entire lives.
Raven: So to answer your question officer, no, I did not punch that guy.
Taiyang: SHE’S LYING!
Taiyang: What did you do at school today?
Young Ruby: Learned about dragons.
Taiyang: Your class learned about dragons?
Young Ruby: I learned about dragons. I don’t know what everyone else was doing.
