Why is there so much yuri fan fictions of RWBY?

  • I'm not complaining about the amount of fan fictions, I'm just saying that I don't get why there is so many fan fictions of these yuri pairings (lesbian). I'm just generally baffled by why there is so many and it's not like annoyance but more like generally confused why.

    As far as I'm concerned I have not watched any sort of romantic relationships with the girls in Team RWBY, with the exception of Weiss and Ruby in that scene at the end of that episode - I don't even know if it is a romantic interaction or just with friendship.

    • I'm with you 100%. consider me as baffled as you, although my guess would simply be the girl to boy ratio - especially in team RWBY!

      The same goes for Fan art aswell. I'm sure between the Bumblebee, whiterose, etc etc etc they outnumber all other deviants.

    • The general rule is: if there are many female main characters, make yuri. If there are many male main characters, make yaoi.

    • It's just because there are so many female characters. There doesn't even have to be a basis for a pairing in canon, if they exist, they can be shipped. So with so many female characters, there is more yuri shipping.

      Rule of thumb with a show is, the more of a certain character's gender there is, the more love stories of them. With Sailor Moon, it was a simple manner of "pair each girl up with another" because there were no major boy characters. Here, girls outnumber boys a good bunch. So that's why there are so many yuri stories.

      Actually, that's true. There are so many girl/guy pairings out there that girl/girl and boy/boy seem to be popular. 

      And about the lesbian fetish thingie...I...like that stuff. I like reading Yuri. It's a fresh start from the traditional guy gets girl or girl gets guy thing.

    • I have no problems with people pairing the girls since it's really common that when there are too many girls, all the ships goes for Yuri... and if there is like just two boys, you can't stop the yaoi shipping can't you ladies?

      Although, it's okay as long as they keep their ships in fanfics and fanart to let off steam but the moment they start bringing their ships in a thread, we are going to have a problem.

      Remember people, It's a show rated for everyone, that includes kids and the proof it's that Roosterteeth doesn't bring any curses or vulgarity like their other series. There won't be a yuri kiss, a hug maybe but no girl and girl dating and sharing hands in public.

      Too bad Monty said there will be some romance... I kind of feel that there will be 35 female characters, 20 male characters... couples confirmed: 2... what a waste.

      There is a RenxJaune story out somewhere. Actually. So your point is validated.

    • It's simple really: The majority of characters revealed in RWBY so far have been female. If you want to write romance without creating an OC (a task fraught with peril for a fanfic author) then you're pretty much going to have to write Yuri right now.

      Yeah, I've noted that OC's on fanfiction with RWBY tend to get hate seeing as the show is about RWBY, not OC. 

      And yes, I do enjoy reading RWBY Yuri/Yaoi stories. It's one of my favorite things to do, and I like it. 

      I've even seen a CardinxJaune Yaoi story there. Surprisingly, I like the story.

    • I've nothing for or against pairing types, but I have a lot against pairing up characters whose personalities don't match. OoC is a big button for me, so I don't read anything like Pink. Some pairings that I don't support I can still read if the story is good enough and they are done properly, but that is difficult. That's why I try to find non-romance fics. Non-OC too, preferably. I don't have a problem until they start hogging the story, which happens most of the time. Fanfics can be difficult, and the vast amount of female characters means that you have few options in the way of non-yuri romance; romance is a big genre in fanfiction, and thus yuri abounds here.

      I like non-OC stories, the entire point of a fanfiction story being in a certain series is so the characters of that series can be present in a prominent role. And yes, Romance is a big genre in fanfiction, and yuri does indeed abound there. 

      I personally like romance RWBY stories, the M rated Yuri ones are my personal favorite...as long as they don't have OC's in them, and if it has good grammar and spelling. Honestly, I read this one story of OC's nailing Team RWBY, and I couldn't tell they were doing the deed until I read the story at least five times, I thought they were yelling at each other. Seriously. Some people couldn't spell to save their lives. If you're going to write fanfiction, make it legible. No point in spouting out your ideas if you can't get them across. 

      I'm not saying I hate OC's, I'm just saying that an OC should be in a secondary role, not a primary, when it comes to RWBY or any named show. There should be a section of fanfiction, devoted entirely to OC stories that involve a show/book/whatever. That way everytime I go around looking for a RubyxWeiss M rated romance story I'm not going to run into a story of an OC nailing Ruby. 

      Yes, when OC's start to hog a story in RWBY, I do get annoyed. The show is about RWBY, not the OC. The OC can be in a prominent role, as long as RWBY/JNPR/CRDL/Someone who actually exists in the RWBYverse is in a more prominent role than them. I.E. you can have a character work with Ruby or Weiss, just make sure that Ruby or Weiss get a more prominent role. Don't go around making the OC the star of a show that they don't actually exist in. Or in other words, OC characters work to a certain point, then they start to defeat on the whole point of writing a story about RWBY. 

      Thank fanfiction.net for the "without" filters. Smartest thing they've done with the filters. 

      Back on topic, I"d say the reason there is so much Yuri is because there are only two major boy characters in the series (Ren, Jaune) who could even stand a chance at getting laid. Cardin doesn't count because no one would ever do that, Ozpin...well, uh...that would be unheadmasterly and Port would just be a horror story. With all the major girl characters, it's pretty much all girlxgirl unless a major boy team comes in. But honestly, I'm fine with it being GirlxGirl. Although I don't mind a good boyxboy story. 

      And honestly, I have no problems with Yuri. I like Yuri, it's my favorite thing to read bar Yaoi and...I can't believe I'm about to say this...unusual pairings. RenxRuby and CardinxJaune were a couple of unique things I've seen out there. I like unique things.

    • I like the unique pairings too. It can be interesting to get a new look at things. My only problem is OoC. I couldn't read a Juane or Ren yaoi if I tried, because to me that would be way OoC. It's the same reason I can't support Pink (sorry pink shippers). I've got nothing against them however, if it is in character. My OTP is yuri, i'll admit it (though not in RWBY). Just stay in character, make it legible, and keep your OC's as support cast. And yes, without filters are the greatest thing they've done so far. Archiveofourown has pairing filters that are useful if your looking for a specific couple, but they don't have any RWBY fics yet.

    • There's a handful of reasons, though this mostly covers Ruby and Weiss. I'm not entirely sure for Blake and Yang, though it may be just to give all of RWBY and JNPR a love interest on their team.

      1: It's fiction written by (primarily) guys, so lesbians are pretty cool.

      2: Ruby and Weiss were the first two characters revealed for the show, and people wanted to write fan fiction immediately. For there to be any romance in it at all, it had to be between those two, which allowed it to really take hold in the community.

      3: Weiss is a tsundere character. "Tsun" meaning angry, and "dere" meaning love, or something along those lines. Ruby is getting the bulk of the tsun from her, so for a lot of people, the logical conclusion is that she'd get the bulk of the dere.

      4: There are two male characters that even have a remote chance of being paired with them, and that's Jaune and Ren. Jaune seems to be taken by Pyrrha, and Ren by Nora. Ren also seems to be totally incompatible with Ruby or Weiss, so unless people are going to break the Jaune x Pyrrha pairing, there's no possible straight pairing for either of them. Since they seem to be BFF's (despite Weiss' outward actions), it seems like the natural solution.

      It's a sad world where anything but straight is considered to be for mature audiences, while you can have a guy and a girl together with no problem.

      But honestly, I agree that most of the stuff out there is just because people like lesbians. Bumblebee and BlakexWeiss (not sure the name) especially just don't come off as genuine to me as much as "Hey, let's take two girls and throw them together".

      Though I don't view the Blake and Adam pairing as too much better. ("OMG really hot tall guy, let's put him with his apprentice").

        Loading editor
    • I can't really add much for the reason behind it all, since my points have already been brought up, but I have a problem with the "straight is the norm" rule.  We can hardly use the excuse of "rated for kids" because we've seen heads being exploded and cut off on screen, blood, crotch grabbing, big bouncy boobs(love you Yang)...seeing two girls or boys holding hands doesn't seem all that scandalous.

      Look at Adventure Time, they hint at MarcelineXBubblegum P. like mad and would have confirmed it if the network hadn't stepped in, but it doesn't compromise the show's quality or rating. It's 2013, the media needs to stop pretending homoexuals don't exist. (Not acusing RT of being bigoted, though. I can understand not wanting to risk the backlash, since they aren't a big and powerful entertainment studio yet.)

    • I've seen some also point out that the 4 team pairings in RWBY and JNPR also work quite well for romantic pairings too with various dynamics, making shipping them almost too easy.

    • I can sum up the viewpoint of every yuri pairing.

      "Girl on guy is hot. Girl on girl must be hotter."

    • That's pretty much it. For any healthy heterosexual male and some love for the 2D, just reading Ruby and Weiss exiting the bathroom after steamy shower sex is enough to turn anyone's attention on.

    • Simple maths - self practice aside, the VIEWER base includes lesbians and the sum of heterossexual men, which in the general gender distribution in such forums leads to a majority.

    • I like the Yuri/yaoi pairings because it's a change of pace from the traditional guy/girl pairing. 

      It's also a way of saying that "RWBY is for everyone". It'll help their views if they have at least one yuri/yaoi pairing, as the gays/lesbians will feel the show supports them, so the audience could increase in that sense. 

      It might also cause some viewers to leave, but it's okay, it'll prove which ones are truly loyal to the show, and which ones aren't. A truly loyal viewer will stay regardless of the romantic pairings, plot or characters introduced.

    • It also could be worth noting that Blake's voice actress has bugged the writers about making her a lesbian, though it seems to be jokingly. As of yesterday's livestream, the team has also said that they enjoy seeing pairings, and don't want to sink ships unless they're doing it for the show.

      What the cast wants for their characters will probably be put in, lest Arryn resign. Or blackmail Miles into putting in BlakexPyrrha. Although it could always be BlakexPyrrhaxJaune. Blake likes Pyrrha, Pyrrha likes Blake, Jaune likes Pyrrha, so all three...

      Straight is the norm is not a rule, its a fact (when you take norm as simply meaning "what the majority of people are").

      As far as it being a rule thats applied to shows; I don't think it even exists anymore. Every second sitcom/TV drama has at least 1 gay character or couple these days, I don't see why anime would be an exception.

    • They do sometimes imply yuri in anime. Although it's always only used for comedic situations like girls 'measuring' the size of each others breasts. It's sad to see that things like homosexuality are never taken seriously in anime, while apparently incest is seen as normal enough to be put on tv in Japan(I'm looking at you, Oreimo)

    • TL;DR (too lazy so I didn't read)

      Generally more girls equals more lesyay and the more boys the more hoyay. Another rule is that the harder two characters fight against each other, the harder they are shipped as in Cloud x Sephiroth and Ruby x Weiss. Sometimes characters are shipped just to give them something to do. For example, Blake and Yang haven't had a lot of screentime, so fans make up for it by coupling them offscreen. An important factor to any ship be it ever so ludicrous is that it contain some interesting dynamic. Generally, we need to know a bit about a pair of characters before that's possible. But even someone we haven't seen much of like Crimson can be shipped. I don't know if there's currently any lesyay pertaining to Crimson or hoyay regarding Torchwick (I assume anything would be relegated to him and Ozpin or his henchmen from Ep1 or maybe Junior, or for non-hoyay, him and Ruby or Glynda).

      Another popular one is any kind of incestyay so there would likely be something about the Malachites macking on each other. It's got the incestyay-lesyay double-whammy bonus.

    • That article basically says that Japanese are too shy and afraid to have real life romance, and in turn sex. The virtual world that's supposed to promote the right values ironically soothed the people's needs for romance, and hence causing people unwilling to leave their comfort zone.

      Whether or not that means there will be a love interest for her remains to be seen.

      Like what Primsatic said they pushed it off sence it sounded like a bumblebee shipper asked it, and as Danisnotonfire said "so what ever you do don't criticize someone's OTP, if they kill you it's your fault." and did not want to hurt the fans "feels". But they have cussed at fans before (I think) so who am I to say that.

    • Lots of places go out of the way to avoid sinking ships because it could cost them fans. Some shippers will completely abandon something, or at least get really pissed off, if their ships are said to be impossible. Some places just do it to keep their options open in case they decide to go that way. I don't know if either of those were their reasons for putting it off, but I'm going to assume she's straight, since they said she was, kind of.

        Loading editor
    • You're correct on that and I am also going with the thought that Blake is straight well beacuse I ship her with Adam but that is an entierly different matter.

      But someone mentioned, acctuly many mentioned that there are more female charaters then male and NOPE

      Female: RWBY, Pyrrha, Nora, Goodwitch, Velvet, the twins, and Crimson total 11

      Male: CRDL, Jaune, Ren, oobleck, port, ozpin, Junior, Adam, Roman total 12

      So unless I missed some one (and don't think I did) there are more males then females by one

    • The ratio of male to female students, I guess? The brony community does a lot of yuri ships due to the ratio, as well... Thankfully, there are straight pairings, even if some are of background characters like Derpy Hooves and Dr. Whooves (which, thank God, is often depicted in a cute G-rated way with Derpy as The (Pony) Doctor's assistant).

      I'll be kind of scared when I see the RWBY community start factoring adult characters with the student characters.... like I've seen Soul Eater fans do. >.<

    • We're mostly talking males who are actually viable for the main girls. That pretty much only includes non d-bags who are of a similar age. Sooooo... Jaune and Ren. Maybe Adam if you stretch it age-wise (and even then, only really for Blake), but he hasn't even shown up yet.

      You can't have Beauty and the Beast with out that romanance and sence Blake and Adam allude to these charaters it is strange not the romance. But we must await Adam for any help with figuring this out.

      And for age differences It really dependes on the era you grew up in and the place you grew up in. It is all based around culture. But seeing how RWBY is written in Texas I would assume that the culture things like that are closer to American then anything and America is divided on it. I know two couples here one spounce is ten or more years the senior of the other and they are both happy. Also one of my teacher's tryed to set me up with her brother that is ten years my senior and I found that pretty creepy. So it all depends on the circumstances.

    • They don't necessarily have to be bound romantically, although it wouldn't be implausable for the character archetype to be drawn to much older men.

      Alternatively, it could be some kind of indebtedness that she feels towards him. Call it the wookie effect, although obviously not as personally binding, since she still seems to value her own concience over it.

      Or you could flip the whole allusion upside down, and turn beauty into the beast for the faunus-fangirling crowd. That would complicate the relationship quite a bit, but it wouldn't be impossible to navigate.

    • Oh, I understand that age differences can work. My parents themselves are over 10 years apart. But 8-10 years with one on the teens still is pushing it further than I hoestly think RT is ready to go. Having a lesbian couple pales in comparison in terms of child-friendliness issues.

      Now, if Adam somehow is more like 23, that's getting to where it's possible. They also may just never say how old he is, if they want to go down the BlakexAdam road, freeing them from having to explain a specific age gap.

      Well, that's his own foot with the hole then. Still, 17 year old girls think themselves about ten years more mature than they really are. Apparently that paradigm flips around 24 when they start trying to subtract years.

    • If Adam is 20, then that'd just be a 3 year difference. Opinions and values differ, but I often don't see a 3 year difference as much of a problem, except for a few circumstances, one of which being a 17-year-old male and 14-year-old female thinking about getting sexual. At that point, the girl's parents can press charges for statutory rape, y'know?

      Even without them getting sexual, I find a relationship between a 14-year-old and 17-year-old kind of awkward, but if the younger person in the relationship is closer adulthood, it stops feeling so awkward to me. So, for me, with Blake being confirmed to be 17, if Adam is 20 or even 21, I think that age gap is just fine. I may be willing to even accept 22, though that's pushing it a bit.

      And you can be a mentor without being older than 5 years senior to the other person.

    • Beacon is more of a college/university than a 'high school', so it's a small reprieve as an anime-viewer to not have to suffer another 14-16YO high-octane-angsty highschool superhero show.

      Of course, 17-18 comes with its own baggage, not the least of which the reasonable shipping expectations (although, thankfully, 'bad decisions' doesn't seem to be something Oum cares to highlight). It's also nice to know that booze campus' are a cultural stupidity when contrasted against fiction >.>

    • Yeah, but Adam just seems to be far too accomplished by this point. He's very skilled. I'd even go as far as to say he's on the level of many of Beacon's professors. I see him as having learned most of what there is to learn, and then applying that in several years of leadership, teaching, and action in the field. I just don't see that out of a 20 year old.

        Loading editor
    • You don't even get that out of most 22YO's, even assuming he graduated a training program something similar to Beacon. His design is too 'rebellious' to have been a locked-in-the-house Disciple type, but he's too good to simply have figured out how to fight on his own (Contrast: Roman's mooks)

      But then, this is the world created by the guy who invented shotgun-sutra, and it didn't seem to take very long for Ruby to learn how to go all "Owww-waaaatchaaaa" with a flippin' scythe. I'd have to call 'not enough info' on Adam, and offer a casual warning to step around the issue lightly. It depends heavily on the canon relationship to which we're simply not privvy to.

      [edit] Adam as an upperclassman, perhaps?

    • Zourin brings up a good point. Ruby is only 15 and already highly skilled with a weapon. I see Signal and other early academies as being, not only where future hunters learn the basics, but also where they train with their weapons to get good at fighting before they move on to actually facing any real, living, breathing monsters.

      After all, what did Weiss say? "Aren't you a little young to be attending Beacon? This isn't your ordinary combat school. It's not just sparring and practice, you know! We're here to fight monsters!"

      So, that just leads me to assume that academies like Signal for younger trainees ages ??? to 17 are more about sparring and practice alongside learning the basics. Therefore, all hunters likely learn from a young age and start practicing with their weapons early.

      Then there are prodigies like Ruby. And... theoretically... possibly Adam?

        Loading editor
    • It's very common in Anime that a 400 years villain who is stupidly powerful is beaten by a 16 year old high school student who just happens to be a prodigy.

      Then again, this feels more like a cartoon when it comes to the fight. In anime, we get flashbacks and thoughts that can last a whole episode (16-26 minutes length) from the fighters but in this series, it's just watching bad guys getting ass-kicked by young ladies.

      Have you considered the possibilty of Adam being a runaway? It's possible that Adam was in his third year at Beacon or another combat school before getting kicked out or leaving for some reason and he is now a 25 year old rogue hunter who improved the abilities that he didn't fully learned at his school.

      If it helps your point, I've seen fanart of Rule 34 being applied to RWBY. Needless to say, I hate whoever drew that stuff and I wish that they would just blow up, it'd be one less stupid person on the planet.  

      Unless it's one on a shipping theory, then I can accept that, like Ruby kissing Weiss or anything like that, but putting Beowolves/Grimm or background students (the dark character models with no detail) just makes me want to go out there and blast the author to death with my oh-so trusty Black Widow Sniper Rifle.

      Sisterly Antics has no shippings, and it's ten times better than what you have there.

      The absolutely iconic 'Hilarity ensues' series and more from knives4cash - the two words are in the synopsis and not the title, but it's grown on me like a trademark - which was the best series of one shots ever in the RWBY Fanfiction forum, not to mention his updates are very frequent. Unfortunately for you, this ships Yang x Blake/Ruby x Weiss, but if you're missing out on this just because of the ship, well... woe to you. Truly, woe to you. In fact, I'll have to say it three times just because you're missing out the best RWBY comedy series ever. WOE TO YOU.

      Let's see. With Fire Comes Shadow is a good story, although a bit slow. No ship.

      Blood Rose in M rated, with lots of gore and an absolutely insane Ruby Rose. Her character here is basically very distorted (Its AU in a sense) so if you can't stand it don't read it.

      The Greatest Team has some pretty cool fight scenes, and a kinda touching ending I suppose.

      'What's in a Name' and 'For Better of Norse' by Moczo are both masterpieces, though I would argue that 'What's in a Name' has infinitely better humor.

      'The Best Laid Plans' and 'Crash and Burn' by Radiant Beam features - in my opinion - the best AU world out of all the fanfictions there, and they are just one-shots. I assure you, if you're an avid reader and you miss this as a RWBY fan, you might as well go jump off a roof.

      Speaking of which, I knew Moczo and Radiant Beam both from the Nanoha Animesuki forums for the longest time, and while I was never close to them, I can guarantee you their writing skills. Like, Moczo has his own books already and they're brothers and sisters sharing one account, while writing and publishing together!

      As for the others, well... Go find yourself and stop being lazy, sheesh.

      To answer the question, it's because rule of thumb is, anything that exists must be shipped with something else that exists. 

      I like the Yuri shipping fics, appropriately. I'm partially surprised and partially impressed one of the first fics there was Crimson Snow, which was a RubyxWeiss lemon. One of the first stories there was a lemon, of all things.

      I'll read anything except horror fics. And ones with OC's in them. And God forbid, one with an OC screwing RWBY characters. It's happened, and every time I've screamed louder than Jaune with the Death Stalker. Actually, one that involved OC's screwing Team RWBY had such bad spelling in it 

      Why I avoid anything with OC's in them: Dear lord, the RWBY fanfiction archive is about RWBY, not about the OC. It's called RWBY Fanfiction Archive, not OC Fanfiction Archive.

      That aside, some of the fanfiction stories are good actually, just not ones with OC's, bad spelling (my reasoning is, don't even bother to write a story if it can't be understood in the first place, you're just wasting your time and everyone elses), OCxRWBY characters, or that really odd RomanxWeiss pairing. I would take OzpinxRuby over those pairings any day. Not that I've seen said pairing...yet. Someone go write a story concerning that.

      Let's see. With Fire Comes Shadow is a good story, although a bit slow. No ship.

      Blood Rose in M rated, with lots of gore and an absolutely insane Ruby Rose. Her character here is basically very distorted (Its AU in a sense) so if you can't stand it don't read it.

      The Greatest Team has some pretty cool fight scenes, and a kinda touching ending I suppose.

      'What's in a Name' and 'For Better of Norse' by Moczo are both masterpieces, though I would argue that 'What's in a Name' has infinitely better humor.

      'The Best Laid Plans' and 'Crash and Burn' by Radiant Beam features - in my opinion - the best AU world out of all the fanfictions there, and they are just one-shots. I assure you, if you're an avid reader and you miss this as a RWBY fan, you might as well go jump off a roof.

      Speaking of which, I knew Moczo and Radiant Beam both from the Nanoha Animesuki forums for the longest time, and while I was never close to them, I can guarantee you their writing skills. Like, Moczo has his own books already and they're brothers and sisters sharing one account, while writing and publishing together!

      As for the others, well... Go find yourself and stop being lazy, sheesh.

      Was it rally nessesary to put all that when you are just saying thar you don't like something? Just saying.

    • I've always said that I am capable of enjoying anything and everything so long as there's a good story and/or good humor. Hence why I can happily overlook RWBY's animation issues.

      So fan fics are a playground for me. I can deal with the less than perfect spelling or writing, so long as it has a great story. Except stuff that involves characters just jumping in bed with each other. (but that's not a good story anyway).

      Recently been reading a decently-written AU RenxBlake (you guys should know well how much I love that ship!). Story is nice and quite cute (some nice humor bits too), and not progressing at too fast of a pace.

    • Ok, I would like to start by saying I am fine with ships. Some of them I don't care for (Pink in particular I can't read, no offense to pink fans) but I usually avoid them as a focus of the story. This is true of RWBY. I can read stories that feature ships, so long as it is not the primary focus, and it is not done by having the characters just jump into bed together. I can read stories that have somewhat subpar writing and spelling (so long as it doesn't take me out of it). I have no problem with yuri, in some fandoms I've ignored stories for not  featuring pairings, though that was rare and usually only done because they leave out some of my favorite characters.

      Also, I read Sisterly Antics. It now has bumblebee. I will still read it even though I don't ship them because it doesn't really force it, it happens easily and is done well.

    • Whoa whoa everyone calm down here please, I know that not all fanfictions are good, but then again, who are we to stop people from sharing ideas/opinion/stories be they biased, humoristic, trolls (tough I have a bit less empathy for these), good or even excellent. So why don't we just keep down that rage against some authors who wrote a (potentially) bad fic? It's all for entertainment anyway.

      Now back on track, I am as baffled as the OP. However I agree with some earlier opinionators that it might have simply something to do with the balance of female/male characters in the show. It is true that the current balance in the main cast (including JNPR) is currently heavily tipped by the amount of women, leaving not much room for somewhat straighter romances to develop into fanfiction. I'm pretty sure not much would be interested into seing one of the members of team CRDL hook up with anyone from team RWBY/JNPR (altough I fear someone here might now think about applying rule 34, to my deepest regret). So in the end it is simply about a question of mathematical pairing, if you have a main cast that is roughly 70%-80% female, you should expect to see that ratio reflected in fanfiction's romance.

      But hey, different people have different tastes. I personally prefer longer, slower stuff when it comes to ships. I can enjoy the Bumblebee ship, but I have to find the rest interesting. For example, I'm quite enjoying With Fire Comes Shadow.

        Loading editor
    • I personally prefer the shorter stuff since I'm writing a long one - fatigue from reading another long ass story when I'm already writing one.

      As for comedies, the characters are usually OOC for exactly that reason - because it's funny. You exaggerate a trait and downplay the others, and voila! Hilarity ensues. As long as you don't blow up the character completely it usually is acceptable - if you want IC stuff then yes, With Fire Comes Shadow is one of the serious fics that will fulfill that wish.

      Recurring Dreams has good comedy too, and a serious storyline despite being just at two chapters. It's very long too.

    • In the fanfic I'm working on, (with OCs added, although the only one that plays a major role is still reasonably minor in the scheme of things), I think most chances of a Yuri ship are covered, but not quite. See, with the addition of Sun [who I think is the confirmation that Blake is indeed straight], there's only really three female characters free - Yang, Ruby and Weiss. Of which, two are sisters (which, since this is more Western than anime, makes that unlikely, not that it stops the internet), leaving only two yuri ships - the Ruby/Weiss (is that Pink? Not onto the ship names yet) and the Yang/Weiss pairing. Team CRDN is so barely fleshed out that they're basically good for nothing ship/combat wise (which is why I made up one of their weapons... then killed them all off-screen). Thus it's more likely that you get yuri ships. The sheer amount of female characters compounds that.

      Yeah, that was similar to the root of my thoughts on Russell. he looked stereotypical tough guy, and at the time it seemed like Yang would be the type to go for him. But now we know he's really pretty much just a racist coward, and I no longer think Yang would be the type to fall for the tough guy anyway.

      Random thought: Of all the current characters, I actually almost see YangxVelvet. Yang really doesn't have anyone that jumps out as someone for her though.

      To be honest, I agree. Ruby and Weiss is a popular ship, although if anything, I prefer it as one-sided on Weiss' side. I know Bumblebee WAS big, but ever since Sun was added, it's almost been deserted as Blake and Sun fit nearly perfectly. Ren and Nora, Jaune and Pyrrha (although part of me wants to say RubyxJaunexPyrrha). Team CRDL and Yang are the only ones left. For me, CRDL is a rough zone, because only one of them has been fleshed out past the "arrogant racist". Yang is left. Velvet is also pretty undefined, too, so until we get more characters detailed in the series, Yang is basically left to her own devices.

      Which, considering some of her comments, might be a problem.

    • I don't know if this opinion is at all shared by anyone. But I always viewed Bumblebee as a ship for people who were fans of Yang and needed a ship for her, more than for people who liked Blake. Not that there weren't Blake fans who shipped them, it just always felt like it was a Yang thing more so than a Blake thing to me.

      I'd think that since Blake's main appeal is intellect, complex emotion, and mystery all tied in with her immense backstory, people would ship her with people that align with one or more of those traits. Yang's intelligence isn't a defining feature, her emotion is more on the side of passion, and she shows herself out on the surface, with little left to mystery.

      Now opposites do attract at times, but I just don't see how in this case they fit together on any level deeper than the basic quiet vs. outgoing dynamic.

        Loading editor
    • That's sort of my problem with Bumblebee. I can see them being good friends easily, but as for relationships I don't see it working. The only thing they have is that Yang is outgoing to an extreme, and Blake is introverted more than any of the others. Even that is only a basis on the opposites attract rule, and that rule doesn't always apply. I can tolerate Bumblebee in some fics if its done right, but I just don't see it myself.

      I'm going to assume you mean "why not make Yang have a relationship with one of those three". Even though that's not really what you've said.

      Ruby and Yang is a rare pairing in fanfiction, mostly because it's, well, incest. Fanart is different, but most of the fanart of this pairing is 18+ and existed before the series was released, back when the theory was that Yang used "sis" as a friendship term, not a family bond.

      Weiss and Yang are opposites, even more drastically than Blake and Yang. Yang is Fire, Weiss is Ice. They don't mesh very well personality wise, unlike Weiss and Ruby. Even so, I'm one of those "one-sided Pink" shippers, and I'd much prefer a heterosexual relationship for them, but if one of the four is going to be a lesbian... I'd probably stick my money on Weiss.

      Blake and Yang's pairing, and the flaws in it, were summed up perfectly in my eyes by XDex and procrastinating dragon, I have no reason to repeat what they've said here.

      Yang isn't really suited for a relationship with any of the currently fleshed-out characters.

      Number one. No matter how many times you have to redo it, make very, very sure your paragraphs are separated correctly and not stuck together. It makes for a very untidy appearance and give people the impression that the story's bad.

      Number two. The transition is extremely weird. One moment we have a betrayal that came out of nowhere. Next we get a dream that has literally no warning at all (except that it's so wrong that you eventually realize that something is wrong) until the very last minute. Then we jump to Ruby waking up in the hospital with the events in C1 and C2 almost completely nullified.

      Like what? I get the feeling like I've gone on a rollar coaster ride with no safety belts, and then told later on that all these time, I've actually been sleeping on a ferris wheel. Yes, that's exactly the leap of logic you jumped without any bridges between to join them.

      Finally, that would be grammar, proof reading and missing punctuation marks. No one can help with grammar - that's something only you can fix, and some writing styles don't necessary conform to conventional grammar - like Yoda's way of speech in Star Wars.

      Proof reading is very important. Most of the time, when you go through what you've written you'd realize that 'FUCKING BULLSHIT I NEED TO DELETE THESE PARAGRAPHS IT JUST WON'T WORK!', and you should follow that impulse too because if you don't, writer's block would happen, and if you force things you'd come up with horrendous writing. Don't be afraid to delete thousands of words, it's not like you're writing for NaNoWriMo so you have a lot of room for error - while I don't because I am, but let's leave that story until I actually finish my... let's see, estimated at 80k if I had enough time to rework Ruby's Arc completely, but if not it'll be around 50k. Yes, you can release a chapter per day if you want and it is very good practice and you'll also improve eventually, but if you don't fix your mistakes then it's just going to be tumor for your stories in the future.

      And missing punctuation marks. Same reason as Number 1, they suck, they really suck, and yes I know it's incredibly hard to keep track with those sometimes but really... try not to. Any decent word processor out there would solve that problem easy peasy, unless it's a FF.Net problem then I have no idea.



      Lastly, you could have a Master degrees in English Academic Writing, but story writing is a whole different beast altogether. I'll give you a very simple example: I wrote a story which has offensive elements in it:

      1) describing pee as yellow army rushing towards the light at the end of the tunnel.

      2) described a student peeing all over his teacher and generally promoting disobedience of authority.

      3) Still encouraging worse disobedience by having my student boldly threatening said teacher that he would put him down... if he doesn't let him pee.

      4) And then there's one describing the protagonist falling face first into a plate full of vanilla... I didn't realize it, but after re-reading the one shot I suddenly realize there's some subtle sexual hint right there.

      Note that the competition theme was love. The judges were a bunch of university lecturers, and most of them have strict morals and beliefs because, well, they're in my country. By all means, I wouldn't have been surprised if I was disqualified or even called out. But guess what? I won the damn thing. Yes, the other competitors sucked, and yes, there were about five other students competing and that means nearly no competition at all, but guess what?

      They don't know how to write a story.

      I encourage you to practice more and read actual stories. Maybe even get a beta reader or something for your work. Then you might improve.

      Also, I'm intensely conscious that my work is horrible at times and that some parts read as dry as sandpaper, so no, I'm not being arrogant if that happens to cross your mind. Got through that phase yes? Great, you need to be incredibly critical to yourself and not be afraid to accept any criticism. I hope this post helps you somehow, because I'm high on coffee and I need to take a bath and I realize this last sentence does not make any fucking sense whatsoever.

      Back to my erotic imaginations, for whatever reason I want to do so. Yes. YELLOW ARMY!

    • Zol, thanks. It's harsh, and it's harder than I've heard, but you know what? I actually do a lot of what you advised already.

      I send each paragraph off to a critically minded friend, who reads over it. My original plot wasn't even going to have the opening as a dream, but after rewriting around three paragraphs, I settled on this.

      I'm aware the transition is weird. I'm getting back into writing fanfiction after a year of original work, and that "weird transition" was encouraged by lecturers.

      I write the fanfic on Word, then upload. The issue with paragraphing is FF.net altering things on me, I spent an hour yesterday trying to fix things up, but gave up when it just reverted each empty line (to give a distinction between paragraphs) to nothing. I'll try again now, then update each and every page. The punctuation is more speedwriting without having a grammer nazi to send things to.

      I read constantly, and was one of the most consistent students in my year level (80%, or high distinction, on almost every single assignment), and I wasn't afraid to experiment with writing. One of my original works was based off an event in my own life, but with the narrator revealing no written dialogue. Check that, if it mentioned music or dialogue, it was on Soundcloud or Youtube, but still technically good enough for the high marks in my structure.

      I'm pleased that you took the time to give me a critical response. I literally deleted four hours work last night on that most recent chapter, because I decided "no, this paragraph doesn't work right, and is just clunky." Instead, I took it out, and ended up writing the content I wanted to in a different way for the paragraph I plan to upload tomorrow.

      So, thanks for the feedback. I've received so very little, aside for people setting the story to their watchlists.

      As a sidenote, which path would you have preferred? Ruby as a killer, where the dream was reality (Sorry about the jarring transition, it was something my teachers caught me on a number of occasions), or the current path, where Jaune lives. Although, the two aren't as separate as you think...

      (Trust me, my original stuff is far better)

    • Update: Nope. Tabbing, like on a Word document, or inserting the text with blank lines, makes no difference to the formatting. It just resets itself after each time I save.

    • FF.Net is a pain in the ass, I'll agree about that with you. It might work better if you copy paste the text directly rather than upload as a .docx/doc file, because that almost always some strange conversion problems.

      Everytime I transist (is that the right word whatever) to another scene I use this line:


      Keeps thing more clean and tidied.

      About the plot, don't ask me - that's also something you must come up by yourself - or at least that's my style. If you thin Ruby the killer is cool, then do it. If you want to make it foreshadow something in the future, then you had better fix the atmosphere for that part because right now, it's not adding up.

      Having an actual style is important. Sadly, it's not always possible to preserve or even 'enter' your style - funnily enough, it's like the 'zone' from Kuroko no Basuke manga; once you get in it you better pray you have a hell lot of free time because you're going to write one helluva beautiful work (or at least, it seemed that way while you're on it - but that's the point). Having a style makes you feel comfortable, and when you can apply it, you know it will work. A style is timeless for you, and you just need to find it.

      Obviously proofreading is going to reveal a lot of errors afterwards, but you won't feel awkward and paused halfway and get completely stumped later on.

      On a completely unrelated note, I miss the days where I can sit in front of the computer and type 5k words per day, even with writer's block. Those free time.

      But I guess it's worth trading some productivity to become much better at League of Legends GAME UNTIL I GO SILLY!

    • Well, it was a dream, so not making sense is part of it. But, some of the parts of the nightmare sequence will... ah, screw it. No point breaking down fan works on a wiki. Just gives me a headache.

      Tried copying and pasting, hasn't really made much of a difference thanks to it's reformatting. I'm using the line now, though, something I started to go back into the posted chapters and add to keep it broken up before you mentioned it. The style stuff, I'm working on forming it. I experiment a fair bit in my one-shot original pieces, although most of them I don't share online. Got plenty of free time, even with my video game loves - it happens when there's no uni for...um...

      *counts on fingers*

      Five months. And when work isn't easy to find, it compounds the issue.

      League doesn't like me, though. I've had matches where people have run inside Lux's ult (since I mostly play her and Yi), and killed my targets thanks to lag. Proofreading is something I do before posting, and I get friends to do. But, unfortunately, I miss a lot of the minor errors, so they get through. Might just start uploading on Deviantart or some such place as well, formatting changes nowhere near as much with their editors than it does on the Fictionpress group of sites.

      Ah, the joys of having too much time and not enough interesting things to do. You start writing fanfiction. At least I haven't stumbled on that "Ruby is a rapist killer, who raped Velvet, raped and killed an unnamed character, then more..." fic again.... that one made me feel sick. The RWBY girls watching RvB is very OoC, but something about how perverted Blake is in there, and the different sugar-high phases of Ruby, fit. At least I'm not writing the intricate details before the next chapter. Just starting with Blake and Sun in the same bed should be enough...

    • Blood Rose? That one's fine. That writer chose a distasteful theme (not for me! Like, that first chapter was downright epic - it nailed the atmosphere perfectly although everything else kinda feels lik Resident Evil for some reason) but his quality is very good, and he updates more frequently than anyone else. It's impressive really.

    • True, and I'll probably hit the "one update a day minimum" at some stage, but right now, I've got two RWBY cosplays on the backburner, amongst other projects. So, I might make it for a few more days, then I'll probably update at the same rate as everyone else. Or go back to my "updates could be one a week to one every two months, depending on boredom levels."

      I have to agree about the first chapter of Blood Rose. It really hooked me. Then when I hit the part where she kills the second person... nope. Didn't make it much further than that. Not due to the tension or the sexual nature (my #1 fanfic of all time was an 18+ Pokemon fanfic, and probably will remain so), I just have had trouble reading pieces where the central character is a psychopath. Had the same issue with Dexter when my younger sister and I started watching season one. Wasn't the gore that got to me, it was the psychological...blankness that got to me. I've got heightened emotional responses, that crap creeps me out.

    • Yeah, I used to write those kind of stuff. They are all confined to one shots though, because it's almost impossible to keep the same feel if you try to do a long fic.

      I do think I'm fairly successful with my one and only long fic in that regard - 140k words I think? It'll depress even the most cheerful of people. I'm proud even though I'm too scared to proof read it again now - went through it countless of times and I know there are still mistakes. At that time I just wanted to finish the damn thing asap because it's depressing even me.

      I'm going to assume you mean "why not make Yang have a relationship with one of those three". Even though that's not really what you've said.

      Ruby and Yang is a rare pairing in fanfiction, mostly because it's, well, incest. Fanart is different, but most of the fanart of this pairing is 18+ and existed before the series was released, back when the theory was that Yang used "sis" as a friendship term, not a family bond.

      Weiss and Yang are opposites, even more drastically than Blake and Yang. Yang is Fire, Weiss is Ice. They don't mesh very well personality wise, unlike Weiss and Ruby. Even so, I'm one of those "one-sided Pink" shippers, and I'd much prefer a heterosexual relationship for them, but if one of the four is going to be a lesbian... I'd probably stick my money on Weiss.

      Blake and Yang's pairing, and the flaws in it, were summed up perfectly in my eyes by XDex and procrastinating dragon, I have no reason to repeat what they've said here.

      Yang isn't really suited for a relationship with any of the currently fleshed-out characters.

      For whatever reason it is, incest is relatively popular in fanfiction. Why? I don't know. But Farroncest is rather popular over in at least one medium, so incest is alive and well. 

      Although personally, a RubyxYang pairing is...odd. A good odd. Not a bad odd.

    • Farroncest was my first thought when people mention incest ships. I never understood it, but it still seems fairly common. I haven't seen one for RubyxYang, but it could happen, and may have already. It just won't be as common as many of the other ships.

      I'm aware of how popular incest is in fanfiction, but I haven't seen any fanfics involving RubyxYang. Fanart, sure. Fanfiction? Nothing.

      As I said, though, canonically, Yang is straight, she even said how much she liked having so many boys around at Beacon. I have a hard time imagining her in a yuri ship, and ever since Sun's introduction, Blake has shifted to the same sort of thing. Weiss is the only one I find easy to picture in that sort of thing.

      It's a difference of opinion thing, there. I like Sun and his depiction, and I find the two of them to fit together quite well, as their personalities mesh nicely. As for Yang being bi, well, it's certainly a possibility, but personally just have so much trouble fitting her into a yuri ship. Again, differences in view.

      True. But, since we have her opinion on boys, we can say for certain that she wouldn't be a lesbian. And, if people are so certain that she is a free spirit, she wouldn't be the kind to settle into a normal relationship with either gender, if she was bi. No, she'd be all about the open relationships... and the open legs, to put it bluntly.

      As a neutral observer to the Avatar:TLA fandom, I can say that your second point is true. After all, that was the one fandom that quite literally split itself into two fighting over the Zutara and Kataang ships. So, while in my own works, I LOVE poking fun at shippers by supporting the ships I like and negating the others, and even pairing canonxfanon if it fits, I remain neutral in most "canonxcanon" shipping wars. And then weigh in when asked with subvertive one-shot fics. Because that's how I roll.

      That seems to be the other reason. The only guys that could be shipped right now are Jaune, who doesn't quite know how to woo the ladies, Cardin, who has the manners of the ursa that attacked him, and the kung fu monkey man, who doesn't even go to Beacon.

    • Also keep in mind that Cardin and Sun weren't introduced until the last half of the series (Sun in the last 2 episodes). So during the first half, all you had was Ren and Jaune, but Ren seems like eventually he will end up with Nora so that kind of takes him out of the running. All that is left is a bunch of girls and Jaune...that lucky bastard.

      I can't be the only one who doesn't think that RenxNora is a thing, can I?  I just don't think it's something that either would be willing to pull off, with what almost seems to be a older/younger sibling relationship (at least to me anyways :/ ).

    • It may happen or it may not. I mean Nora seems to tip-toe around the idea of liking Ren in her first serious introduction; saying that they could be together (as a team), but not together-together (as a couple). It would seem weird to even include this unless Nora had that kind of idea already in her head and needed to clarify. Ren on the other hand acts as a good foil to Nora's craziness, being the only one that can rope her in and doesn't really seem to mind her craziness considering how they play off each other. Like I said, it could happen but you never know.

    • So, reviving this thread.... If Monty does decide to make one of the four main girls a lesbian, my money's on Weiss. However, I do not ship her with any of the current characters. I'm actually kind of hoping she never ends up in a relationship, or at least not until waaaayyy later in the series, because I like the whole "lone wolf" mentality she has. Or, at the most, give her one-sided feelings toward a character (preferably one we've yet to meet).

      Idk, I just love Weiss the way she is right now. I'm afraid she'll become one of those characters who starts out cold, and ends up becoming super lovey-dovey in the future.... It's just not her style.


      Anyway, yeah, that's my input. As for why yuri ships are so common with RWBY, I've got to agree with everyone else about the female-(plausible) male ratio.
