    What's this now? Did they drop a new episode, or announce Saphron would be in a future one? She'd be the first post-Beacon character used....

    To be fair, this is RWBY we're talking about. Dust, Aura, and Semblances sort of make physics their bitch. People do things their mass and velocity absolutely shouldn't allow without them losing limbs or turning into wet red smears ALL the time, and a lot of the technology is basically "this is magic, because of dust."

    Something we haven't talked a lot about here... speculation about dust and it's nature. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems quite likely that dust is the literal dust of the first world, right? The world where magic was abundant and lived in everything,...

    I don't think that's magnetism. There's a purple glow; that's gravity dust....

    The nature of the Creation, of Destiny and Fate, of the circumstances of its genesis, of the nature of the Maidens, of the Loom, is such that Creation is, depending on how you look at it, an enormous and ongoing narrative, a story. The Sidereal Exalted have the ability to make notes and even to pick up a pen on occasion. All of the Charms are structured around this point of view of Creation.

    The Sidereal Charmset is written such that once you understand the patterns of this narrative and how the Sidereals are bound to it, you can "exploit" the Charms to make lateral leaps...

    Amayad, I like both your jib AND the manner in which you have cut it.


    Oh yes, absolutely. And the hell of it is, that's like... past Salem, who was almost certainly a much more cuddly person who valued human life more than the modern incarnation.



    I can agree with this, yeah, although it's a bit sort of... the kind of person who is going to respond that way is probably the sort of person who doesn't assemble a murder army in the first place, yeah? If Salem actually cared about the army, she would, paradoxically, have probably not assembled it in the...

    That's not at all the biggest problem with V4 and V5. I mean, it was absolutely a problem, but not the biggest problem. The biggest problem was the writing. Four was awkward as hell, and I'll be blunt about five: Miles and Kerry should be ashamed of it. Its problems are deeply baked into the structure. It would still have been the worst volume even if the fights had been orgasm-inducingly good. The Raven plotline alone is so jaw-droppingly dumb I can't even....

    The FNDM as a whole has largely come to the conclusion that she's gotta be a Silver-Eyed Warrior. The lengths they went to to shield her eyes, plus the framing in the credits, have that theory running massively ahead of everything else.

    As for being descended from Salem... the thing is, that happened so long ago that either EVERYONE is descended from Salem, or no-one is. If the kids lived to reproduce at all, after many centuries everyone on the planet can most likely be tied back to that line....

    No. He didn't. Not even close. Among other things, he's drafting her into a forever war from which her only escape is death. With what he told her, Pyrrha has a reasonable hope of one day winning out; you find whoever is killing Maidens, or really whoever is specifically after Amber, and you stop them.

    But you can't win out against Salem like that.

    And even without Salem, "you are the unique key to an object of literally world-ending power" is incredibly relevant.



    Ozpin doesn't get to make that decision for her. That is wildly and...

    Then he shouldn't have agreed to go-around number two.

    People aren't toys. People aren't experiments, which is how the God of Light implicitly refers to them as. They do not exist to validate his philosophical positions or his sense of order and correctness. He should not have agreed to a second bite at the apple if all it was going to be is "let's introduce a bunch of people into a terrible world, with a terrible creature stalking it who I helped create and cannot be bothered to destroy, and then judge the shit out of them if they aren't up to not only MY standards, but the...
