Now I know you thought my edit wasn't descriptive enough, but I felt it was described pretty accurately in the first part of the article when Qrow saves Amber, and that telling everyone again would've been redundant. And I try to avoid redundancy whenever I can. Anyway, hope this helps, and I hope you enjoy the upcoming episode, I know I will.
My problem is it was history, describing an event in which the character colored what exactly the event was.
While it is true to an extent to state that Qrow said the infiltrator was the same one who assaulted Amber, that is not what Qrow was implicating in that scene with his word choice, which your description of "Same one who assaulted Amber months before" fails to convey.
His choice of words "also responsible for" indicates she is the one responsible for both entire assault(which was actually an assault by 3 people, which is something your edit failed to account for) and her specific condition, which was actually not caused by the assault, but rather by the bug/glove(which again is not accounted for in your edit wording)
Hey, so I remember you saying something about wanting to be a Backer for Combat Ready in a thread but missing out cos of real life reasons. Well, I just received an email from it, and it mentions being able to become a late supporter of RWBY Combat Ready. If you Pre-Order from this website , it comes with the backer-only stuff but not the 3 extra objective cards that were added on at the very end. I believe the deadline is the 1st of December.
Just thought I'd let you know so you can get all the Backer-Only stuff as well if you wanted (since it's the only reason I backed it).
$45 gets you all the backer-only stuff, though the 3 extra objective cards for hitting $700k are Kickstarter only. the extra $40 will get you the optional extra stuff, which is the villian miniatures and the 2 sub-boss decks. But yeah.
Basically, pre-order it and you can get everything the backers got except 3 objective cards. Which I'm sure somebody will post online and share, so you can just print them out and do them for yourself anyway.
"The Tengu's Magic Cloak" (天狗の隠れみの Tengu no Kakuremino?): A boy looks through an ordinary piece of bamboo and pretends he can see distant places. A tengu, overwhelmed by curiosity, offers to trade it for a magic straw cloak that renders the wearer invisible. Having duped the tengu, the boy continues his mischief while wearing the cloak. Another version of this story tells of an ugly old man who tricks a tengu into giving him his magical cloak and causes mayhem for his fellow villagers. The story ends with the tengu regaining the coat through a game of riddle exchange and punishes the man by turning him into a wolf.
"The Old Man's Lump Removed" (瘤取り爺さん Kobu-tori Jiisan?): An old man has a lump or tumor on his face. In the mountains he encounters a band of tengu making merry and joins their dancing. He pleases them so much that they want him to join them the next night, and offer a gift for him. In addition, they take the lump off his face, thinking that he will want it back and therefore have to join them the next night. An unpleasant neighbor, who also has a lump, hears of the old man's good fortune and attempts to repeat it, and steal the gift. The tengu, however, simply give him the first lump in addition to his own, because they are disgusted by his bad dancing, and because he tried to steal the gift.
"The Tengu's Fan" (天狗の羽団扇 Tengu no Hauchiwa?) A scoundrel obtains a tengu's magic fan, which can shrink or grow noses. He secretly uses this item to grotesquely extend the nose of a rich man's daughter, and then shrinks it again in exchange for her hand in marriage. Later he accidentally fans himself while he dozes, and his nose grows so long it reaches heaven, resulting in painful misfortune for him.
"The Tengu's Gourd" (天狗の瓢箪 "Tengu no Hyōtan"?): A gambler meets a tengu, who asks him what he is most frightened of. The gambler lies, claiming that he is terrified of gold or mochi. The tengu answers truthfully that he is frightened of a kind of plant or some other mundane item. The tengu, thinking he is playing a cruel trick, then causes money or rice cakes to rain down on the gambler. The gambler is of course delighted and proceeds to scare the tengu away with the thing he fears most. The gambler then obtains the tengu's magic gourd (or another treasured item) that was left behind.
"The Tengu, and the Woodcutter": A tengu bothers a woodcutter, showing off his supernatural abilities by guessing everything the man is thinking. The woodcutter swings his axe, and a splinter of wood hits the tengu on the nose. The tengu flees in terror, exclaiming that humans are dangerous creatures who can do things without thinking about them.
A story from Inaba Province, related by Inoue Enryō, tells of a girl with poor manual dexterity who is suddenly possessed by a tengu. The spirit wishes to rekindle the declining art of swordsmanship in the world. Soon a young samurai appears to whom the tengu has appeared in a dream, and the possessed girl instructs him as an expert swordsman. Some rumors surrounding the ninja indicate that they were also instructed by the tengu.
The closest thing to discussing a spoiler I have done in the last 3-4 days is discussing the video RT released at RTX 2015, and I said nothing of import about the video that they themselves could only not disperse due to unlicensed music, at least nothing beyond speculation about one of the new team members not having a weapon, and that I thought was fair game as the assertion Reese Chloris has a skateboard-gun requires visual confirmation of the same thing.
I would understand if RT said the video was confidential... but they did not, I watched it without sound and figured that covers issues with the music... and I posted no link to it, nor did I go to RTX or disclose anything I was asked to keep quiet about.
I swear that's not me up on Qrow Branwen's Thread Page.
I was downstairs doing my Mass Effect 2 Insanity playthrough when I saw that. I don't use words like that. Serriously. It's not me.
I noticed, that is why I removed the name, at first I thought it was you making chainsaw noises on the thread as a zombie reference, then I realized there was no sig and it was OoC of you to post that there and checked the address.
California is...a mixed bag. The weather is very static here, so if you like having things the same, this place is for you. Unfortunately, the weather consists of hot and hotter in the daytime and cold and colder in the nighttime. Wonderful, I tell you. Also, the weather sometimes...doesn't change all frickin day or night. It could be one in the morning and it's still as warm as the daytime. Okay, I blame that one on the lack of a breeze, but still, point stands.
Out here, it's "if you don't like the weather, get used to it, it's been this way for half a century and it'll stay that way for another half century". More or less. Sometimes it rains. And piggies fly out of my a-
I consider myself a prideful person, it doesn’t tend to be noticeable in real life as I tend to be too polite to show it, but here on the internet I am starting to become aware of it more and more and sometimes I wonder if I am justified or not.
For instance, I once have come to disagree with Jay who suggested I allow an oc of mine that suffers from permanent insomnia to be able to sleep if knocked out, to which I couldn’t agree, as that was the whole basis of her character, and I felt that it balanced itself out by her being allowed to become too exhausted to move…but I did compromise in the end and gave her a dazed period if she was hit hard enough, and now I find myself there again.
You have suggested, time and time again, I put a semblance on one of my OC-s...and time and time again I said no, but is me saying no being a hypocrite? I did ask for feedback and that does count as such, but I see virtually no reason to do so no matter how hard I try. It doesn’t go directly against canon, her fighting style has plenty of tools already even without one, it fits with her backstory since she spent most of it learning how to draw a sword and the rest on upgrading her weapon, and adds a unique dimension to her character by being a successful hunter without one…sooooo to summarize.
Can you please explain to me, in as many words as you are willing to give me, why do you think she needs a semblance?
it isn't you being hypocritical, as I said in my post where you asked if she needed a semblance;
the answer is both yes and no
Yes she has one, that much I feel is undebatable, just as every person in this world has some form of talent, a semblance I feel is a special lens for a characters aura to impact the world.
However, this leads to where the "No" comes in; she does not need to ever discover what her semblance does, just as many people in our own world fail to discover their own potential or talents. This is a perfectly valid option...
My problem was you put forward a potential "bleed" through the lens that is possibly her semblance... but would not elaborate on whether it truly is her semblance or is just a joke the students created... the latter being something that would likely mean nothing to her yet be teased at by others, while the former would be mentioned by all those who knew her and likely herself as well should she be made aware of it...
I will note that as a reader this knowledge is unnecessary, yet as a writer I feel it is important to note the difference because otherwise it can lead to unintentionally misleading writing, which when writing something that is complex can completely derail the narrative and make any hints you give misread/disregarded.
Semblance: Undiscovered; She has spent most of her life as a student learning the art of the draw and upgrading her weapon, so she was far too busy to even consider discovering her semblance, and once out she had even less reason to learn it; She DOES, however, spread false rumors about having a pain ignoring semblance that allows her to amputate a student’s legs without them screaming as a means to scare fist years, and even keeps her weapon with the chains deployed on the walls of her clinic for emphasis. She makes sure to tell the students that come in the truth before they leave though.
Well in that case I think she is done for the most part. Updated my mistakes and added the Notes section on my page concerning her interaction with the staff, trivia and references, think that covers just about everything. Thanks for the help and don’t hesitate to point out if I missed anything.
Alice in Wonderland is, in my opinion of course, a story about growing up narrated via an acid trip, so of course most people choose to focus on the latter while ignoring the former…honestly I love your idea of Alice so much I’m half tempted to make an oc with exactly that premise.
I wasn't kidding about that btw...did you make that character yet? If not i think i might give it a go.
