    Well, this is all contingent on what the writers want to happen, because there's a lot of leeway here.

    Your scenario is absolutely plausible and believable. However, if the writers don't want to go that way, it is also plausible and believable for Ironwood to cover everything up.

    Right now, literally the only people who know that Manta 5-1 was stolen are the people manning Argus Base, and the only person there who knows FOR SURE who it was is Cordovin. Remember, comms can't reach from Anima to Solitas anymore. It is entirely possible that Qrow has Jimmy Jims personal...

    Yeah, I don't necessarily agree with everything else but I think we're only due for one season in Atlas.

    Based tenuously on the needs of narrative pacing and the formula established thus far, I'm tentatively predicting that we're going to follow the season 4/5 structure going forward. By which I mean:

    Season 4: Journey to Mistral
    Season 5: Mistral
    Season 6: Journey to Atlas
    Season 7: Atlas
    Season 8: Journey to Vacuo
    Season 9: Vacuo
    Season 10: Journey to Vale
    Season 11: Vale

    I'm basically 100% sure the series will...

    Yes, but again, by your own standards, if the investigation ONLY turns up eyewitness testimony, one is obliged to ignore it.



    So if someone SAYS "this guy acted like a dirtbag," that's not enough, but if they WRITE IT DOWN, we're golden.



    Which again, is you saying "if you don't have physical evidence, you've got jack shit."


    One of the ways in which "hearsay" is proven is by bringing in the people saying it.



    Because that seems to be what you're saying. Your stance seems...

    Again, by this standard, if you don't have physical evidence, merely the reports of witnesses, you're obligated to disbelieve them. All of them.



    Again, though, by your standards, what you've learned from your personal observations doesn't count to anyone who can't, themselves, confirm it with their own eyes.



    It is not in fact a requisite. Law enforcement will often arrest people or press charges based on nothing more than eyewitness testimony, which under your rubric they shouldn't be doing. And you know what? That's absolutely okay. If you...

    What the hell does this even mean? By this standard if you don't have verifiable physical evidence of some sort, it doesn't matter how many firsthand reports you get, you're obliged to not believe them, because all you've been "shown" is someone NOT doing anything.

    This is a pretty decent standard for law enforcement, at least sometimes, but it's completely untenable and unreasonable to be applied in all cases.



    You got a link to anyone who isn't, themselves, a conspiracy-mongering shitstain, Sunder?

    I clicked the link. Saw that this...

    If this is character assassination, it involves a LOT of people in a coordinated effort over close to a decade. People have been coming forward about Vic going at them inappropriately for a very long time now. It's only just now gaining traction, finally.

    Do people make false accusations? Sure. That happens. Do a shit-ton of people form a conspiracy to do so, and persist with it over many years, for no personal gain at all? Technically possible, but quite dubious.



    Well, at this point there are two possibilities:

    1) The truth is already out....

    I'm pretty okay with inconsistent as long as the last step gets it right.



    Hopefully, yeah.

    To be honest... of the "latter-day" RWBY cast members, the only two I've found truly impressive were Mignogna and Jen Taylor. (Yeah, I know Jen Taylor was technically the first character to speak. I'm not sure I count "mysterious narrator.") Season 6 is a great season, especially after 5, but I remember looking at Coleen Clinkenbeard and Luci Christian in the credits and going "I see Rooster Teeth have just kind of defaulted to using the same...

    I think, of the Thousand Dooms, the only remaining one unambiguously remaining is the Fair Folk, yeah? They still want to destroy Creation and watch it boil away into the Wyld? There are probably still Underworld shenanigans that are apocalypse-related going on, but that's yet to be at all confirmed.

    I'm going to flip one of the OP's contentions around:


    There are certainly some threats that the un-Exalted are not equipped at all to deal with (I don't think humanity could have toppled the Yozis, even with divine aid, without some among their number becoming Exalted)...

    A bunch of new people have, but lets be honest here: Vic's behavior has been well-known for a long-ass time. He should never have been hired to begin with, and cons really should have stopped inviting him.



    And they were right to do so.



    Or they might have decided that he's actually a dirtbag and they don't want to work with dirtbags.



    Vic Mignona has not been convicted in any court. He is a free man.

    If you want to make the course that people have formed an erroneous opinion of him, or the accusations surrounding...
