Honestly though how many of Ruby’s speeches would be labeled inspiring and wise and brave if they were coming out of the mouth of someone like Luke Skywalker or your generic Wise Old Mentor Guy, but are instead cringey, overbearing, and naïve because it’s a teenage girl saying them?
Okay, this really drives me absolutely nuts though because like. That’s the major difference between how the FNDM react to Ruby trying to talk Raven down in v5 and Oscar trying to talk Ironwood down in v7. Especially when people say he’s suddenly wiser or braver because of Ozpin’s influence when it’s actually because he’s been inspired by the wisdom and bravery that he’s seen from Ruby over and over again.
Okay, not to go off topic here, but I’ve never seen it pointed out that Raven is actually Ruby’s stepmother.
I guess it isn’t obvious because, unlike most examples of stepparents, Raven came first, but holy crap.
iconic moments in rwby fandom history:
- “they’re not gay… would lesbians have big boobs?”
- that rwby cameo in the doctor sleep movie???
- yorse. beehaw. the originals ONLY everything else you people spawned afterwards is bad i’m not sorry
- “i know penny isn’t coming back in the v7 premiere but i’m gonna be disappointed anyway when it doesn’t happen 💔” WELL
- monty’s black and yellow video you know the one
- dabbing weiss being everywhere

- BASICALLY NO ONE predicting raven being the spring maiden. that was just such a good twist tbh
- noseless edits
- that meme of ironwood looking at his scroll and screaming
- “i love you yang”
- “SO I HEAR YOU’RE INTO PUSSY”
- when the v6 soundtrack got super delayed and everyone was impatient so when it actually came out the whiplash of nevermore AND armed and ready acoustic was almost too much
- when crunchyroll slashed out the W in rwby in a promo for v5 and weiss got stabbed, then they did the same thing with the B in v7 and people lost their minds but then. nothing happened to blake lol
- THE BELTS. THE FUCKING BELT MEMES
- the overall mutual acceptance of the idea that qrow adopts every teenager he meets
- whatever the hell this was:
- in that one behind-the-scenes clip for v6 that had a storyboard frame of blake fighting adam before it happened, and they edited it out like 30 minutes later, but everyone had already seen it
- the talk about that atlas ball we never got
- the one-off unnamed rabbit faunus girl that ilia saved at haven and everyone immediately started shipping her with
- after “seeing red” came out and bumbleby was #1 on the fandometrics ship tier, fucking dethroning kl*nce that had been consistently sitting on top for a year or so
- NEATH BEING VAGUE ABOUT EVERYTHING ON TWITTER PLEASE STOP THIS MAN
- people crying over a maple leaf haha can’t relate *sobs*
- when the rt servers got so overloaded during the v6 premiere that we crashed the site
