    • Disney's Susanoo: an Idea

      1 week ago


      So, the other day, I had an idea for a Disney Susanoo movie. So far, what I've got is in this link.

      What do you think?

    • Moving to LA in August

      2 weeks ago


      Well, the time has finally come. I'm going to California to continue to grow as a voice actor and...well, other stuff. I'm both excited and nervous to go, more specifically nervous about how to get there. Do I drive cross country with whatever can fit in my car or do I take a plane and have the car shipped with everything inside?

      I guess the answer will come when I get to it.

      My Purpose

      The flight to the isle of Midna was long and dreary, and with each passing minute, fear set in amongst the united armies of Remnant. What if they failed to save Ozpin? What if they failed to survive the onslaught of Grimm that were doubtless waiting for them? What if this isle of Midna didn’t even exist?

      This fear, Yang decided, simply wouldn’t do.

      Thus, she stepped forward, walking down the length of the airship that housed her and her friends and teammates, Teams RWBY, SSSN, and JNPR, until she reached the cockpit and knocked on the sealed door.

      “Who is it?” the voice of General Ironwood softly boomed through the door, bidding Yang to open it and step in.

      “Mr. Ironwood,” she said. “Permission to speak with the rest of the army.

      “For what purpose, Ms. Xiao Long?” asked the general, his eyes focused on the sea ahead.

      “The rest of my team has already given motivational speeches. I figure, might as well give one too.”

      Setting the intercom to Open Channel, James opened the door to the cabin and let Yang sidle up beside him. “Make it quick,” he said, “and do try not to break anything this time.”

      “I’ve learned my lesson, Jim. Don’t worry.”

      The good general couldn’t help but crack a smile as he watched Yang tap the monitor and blip the intercom to life.

      “Whassup, my homies?!” she hollered over the intercom. No one answered, much to her dismay. “Really? Nothing to that? Oh, well.”

      But before she could hang up, an officer answered from another ship. “Silver Delta 2, reading you loud and clear. Over.”

      Excited, Yang picked up the intercom and resumed her talk.

      “The name’s Yang Xiao Long. You know me as ‘Blondie,’ ‘Hot Stuff,’ ‘Lady Punch-a-Lot,’ ‘The Girl who Broke Mercury’s Leg,’ and ‘Yangry.’”

      A mix of groans, boos, and sighs reciprocated her poor choice of humor, but she was mostly met with pained silence.

      “Come on, folks. These are the jokes. Tough crowd,” she flatly responded before clearing her throat and straightening herself. “Now, all kidding aside, I’ve lived most of my life thinking that I had no purpose, being the illegitimate daughter of two of the best hunters ever to come out of Beacon Academy—no offense, by the way. But recent events have led me to realize that despite all assurances to the contrary, I had let myself be a prisoner of the past.”

      This time, a series of murmurs greeted her.

      “I had spent the better part of my life chasing after my mom for answers that were never there, to questions that I never even needed to ask. And after I lost most of my hair—not to mention my arm—I began to realize that my life…does have a purpose after all. Everyone’s life has a purpose, in fact.”

      In the loading bay, the sleeping Ruby jittered herself awake to the sound of Yang’s voice, her silver eyes fluttering open.

      “Some people are meant to go out and be heroes in storybooks. Some are meant to write those storybooks themselves. Me? I’m just meant to get out there, kick some butt, and put smiles on the faces of people who need help. It’s something I’ve been doing for my own team without even realizing it until I reunited with them at Mistral.”

      She tiptoed to the cockpit and peered inside.

      “And guess who needs help right now. I’ll give you a hint: he’s got white hair, wiry sunglasses, a green necktie, a black suit, and he drinks WAY too much coffee. That’s right: Professor Ozpin.”

      Yang paused to look back, spotting Ruby in the doorway, and then faced the microphone again.

      “It’s going to be crazy, it’s going to be scary, and it’s going to be dangerous—deadly, even. But me and my friends, here? We figure, screw that! When we get to Midna, we’re going to save Ozpin if it’s the last thing we do, and we’ll blast any monster dumb enough to get in our way to kingdom come!”

      She pumped her prosthetic fist…


      …and after a brief pause, was met with waves of applause over the intercom.

      “Thank you, Ms. Xiao Long,” said General Ironwood. “Now, please return to your seat.”

    • "Bmblb" is a big mistake

      1 month ago


      No matter how you look at it, this one song, "Bmblb", set to come out on the RWBY Volume 4 soundtrack, is a big PR nightmare waiting to happen. If it's about Bumblebee, the ship between Blake and Yang, that's grounds for pandering to the fan dumb, and if it's not, it's grounds for queerbaiting. Frankly, I think the latter is the lesser of the two evils, because nobody who deserves to call himself or herself a creator should have to stoop to the level of the fan dumb for ratings or publicity or anything. Besides, there's no hard evidence that any of Blake and Yang's interactions could possibly be romantic and no reason for it to make sense in the context of the story, and even if there was, for any romance to work, both parties involved must have a common core desire to bond over, an overlap that Blake and Yang sorely lack.

      Blake wants people to see her as a person, not as a label, and to that end, she needs a reason to stop running away.

      Yang, on the other hand, wants a life of adventure. Always running, always fighting, always being someone else's 11th hour guardian angel. And to that end, she needs to close the book on her abandonment issues with Raven.

      Any overlap? Any common ground? I think not.

    • Most Unfairly Hated Characters?

      in Forums > Most Unfairly Hated Characters? | Follow this topic


      Who do you think are the most unfairly hated characters in RWBY, and why?

      To start, I'd say that besides the obvious answers of Jaune, Blake, and Ruby, it's Sun and Neptune. Both of them are hated mainly because they got in the way of White Rose and Bumblebee, and what few legitimate criticisms exist...well, I can't think of any that can't be traced to time constraints and limited resources.

      The Last Preparation

      It was finally time.

      With the CCTs back online, communications flowed more smoothly than ever before, even unto tracking down Ozpin's location: the forbidden isle of Midna.

      Very little was known about the isle, for though many had tried exploring it, none had lived to tell the tales of their exploits. The closest thus far to doing so had been Ruby's mother, Summer.

      And now, here they were, Teams RWBY, SSSN, and JNPR, leading a legion of huntsmen and huntresses to retrieve their headmaster. But of course, they were not alone; the armies of Atlas, Vale, Vacuo, and Mistral stood united to cover them.

      And leading the attack would be Jaune and Ruby, the newest great heroes of Remnant.

      As Jaune prepared to board the last airship of the fleet that would take the army to Midna, he spotted Ruby sitting alone by the hangar door, reading a magazine about weapons and listening to her favorite music, her red headphones set snugly over her ears. Jaune hesitated, but then tapped Ruby's shoulder. Immediately, her silver eyes snapped up to meet his blue ones, and she slipped her headphones off.

      "What is it, Jaune?" asked Ruby.

      "Um, well..." started Jaune, eking a dull leer from Ruby. "I was just wondering."

      "Wondering what?"

      "Well, after we rescue Ozpin...what do you want to do?"

      "What? You mean as in for the rest of the school year?"

      "I mean beyond that. After we graduate, what do you want to do?"

      Ruby paused to pinch her chin. "You see, my mom...even after she had me, she wanted to help people wherever she went. That's what I want to do too. It's what I've always wanted."

      Jaune smiled. "You know what? That's what I've always wanted too. More than even being like my ancestors before me."

      "Yeah," chuckled Ruby. "Of course, we've learned that we can't do this alone, but..." Then, Ruby tilted her head and raised an eyebrow. "Wait a sec. Jaune, where's this going?"

      Jaune caught his breath and twiddled his fingers. "Well, you see, wouldn't it be nice if, you know, we kept helping people together?"


      "I mean, you and me...we could be...I don't know, more than just friends, or partners in hero work, or whatever you want to see that. I mean, I'm just talking hypothetically, but--"

      "Jaune, wait," interrupted Ruby. "Are you saying that me?"

      "What, as a friend?"

      "No. As in LIKE like me. As in...LOVE me."

      "Um...then, yes," squeaked Jaune.


      Without another word, Ruby jumped out of her seat, threw her arms around Jaune's neck, and kissed him. Jaune, at first shocked by Ruby's move, tried to squirm away, but soon eased off, closed his eyes, and returned Ruby's affection. As they broke away, Ruby wiggled her fingers across her lips.

      "That tasted like melon soda," she dribbled. "With onions."

      "You can thank Ren for that," said Jaune. "Now, come on. We've got a headmaster to save."

      "I'm here if you need me," smiled Ruby, and together, they boarded the airship and let the hangar door close behind them.
