There isn’t a singular look for African women and girls
Somali bantu women
The most beautiful women in the world if you ask me.
my policy for “they’re just doing it for attention” has always been and always will be “then someone needs to pay attention to them”
And here’s the full set of designs for what I’m calling the “Cloudwalker AU” (I have no idea what that means other than Sun lives in the sky and parkours on clouds for most of his day)
[PLEASE, I AM BEGGING YOU, DO NOT COMPARE THESE TO “AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER” OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. THANKS. I GET THAT ENOUGH WITH MY EXISTING ORIGINAL STORY…]
Odd AU where Pyrrha and Jaune are like these supernatural story chasers and they’re on the run from this really pissed Vampire Princess (Weiss?) after one job where they accidentally befriend and take home her Vampire friend (definitely Ruby). Along with them in their travels is a half-alive voodoo zombie Ren (more mystic; less brain munching) and a hyped up ghost Nora (boo…p). Also, Jaune is like this werewolf who’s yet to actually fully transform and Pyrrha is just a normal human (atm).
ALSO! To cover the rest of team RWBY:
Yang is human in this AU and acts as sort of as Guardian for Pyrrha and Jaune. She runs a pub where they hang out and pass along any news/info of whats going on. Her and Ruby are still sisters- but haven’t contacted each other ever since Ruby disappeared and turned into a vampire (she assumes the vampire that took her killed her). This event has caused her to take a great interest in the paranormal. (expect there to be lots of wtf and weiss hate/love going on).
Blake is a wizard(cop?) in this AU and long-time friend of Yangs. She hangs around the pub alot and teaches Yang from time to time about simple spells and potions. When not at the pub- she’s often seen around lazing about in her cat form or on duty dealing with dark magic users.
Update: Odd AU -Weiss, Penny, and Sun covers
-Weiss as mentioned is a Vampire princess and casually runs experiments like Dr.Frankenstein. She favors science over magic mumbo jumbo. She’s currently chasing after Pyrrha and Jaune after they accidentally snuck Ruby away from her.
-Penny is the product of an experiment conducted by Weiss to see if she could create life via dust crystals (think Frankenstein’s monster but not so much a monster; more like cyborg). She helps Weiss around her lab whenever an experiment is underway (sorta like igor?) and helps Sun on duties sent by Weiss.
-Sun in this AU is more or less a (Were-)Yeti of sorts. He works for Weiss and runs errands for her but really spends his time out messing around with Blake when ever she’s on duty.
~sidenote: if you’ve managed to read this far and are interested in writing/drawing about this AU- please go on ahead and create as you please! I’m not much of a writer and am mostly just jotting down ideas for this AU for me to draw snippets and comic bits for later.
Update: Odd AU - Ozpin, Glynda, Cinder
-Glynda is a detective chief inspector of the Vale supernatural police department and looks over ndd works on cases. She, like Blake, is also a wizard; she can also change into a cougar/panther like animal. She has had a long-term rivalry with Cinder for centuries that go back to her days at the police academy. She specializes in light magic but has been known to excel even further in dark magic when necessary.
-Ozpin is commissioner of the Vale supernatural PD- he makes sure that everything’s running smooth and that he keeps everyone in check; to a certain degree (he normally lets Glynda keep everyone on point). Ozpin is a full-fledged werewolf; he’s able to control whether or not he turns regardless if there’s a full moon out or not. Hes had his fair share of cases; some worse than others.
-Cinder (ATM) is unknown; she’s military trained (sorta like the marines). After her service she joined Vale PD and was partnered up with Glynda Goodwitch for four years until she disappeared on this one case involving an undercover sting operation dealing in the activity of a necromancy cult. Cinder is considered a half-wizard (yknow, a muggle) but still went through the same studies as Glynda. Even being a half-wizard, Cinder excelled at magic; even surpassing Glynda on certain fields. She and Glynda are as mentioned long time rivals- but being partners for four years has made them old friends.
Update: Neptune, Sage, Scarlet
-Neptune in this AU is a merman (of sorts; think Aquaman sorta; similar powers) He’s the heir to the south pacific throne and usually wanders off on random “diplomatic” adventures. He (as is the rest of SSN) is bros with Sun. He has power over the tides and can communicate to sea life as well as having access to a ready military.
-Sage is a Human who came from a long family of dragon riders. He goes on missions usually dealing with dangerous mythical creatures. Most of the time he’s accompanied by Scarlet (a dragon morphing human). His objective is to study mythical creatures and understanding the mythical world around him.
-Scarlet as mentioned is a half dragon/human. In his dragon form; he’s like this long spiked red serpent dragon with wings separate of his arms. He’s the oldest but shortest (in human form) of his clan. He’s responsible for looking out for his dragon bros an ensuring that his clan is safe from dragon slayers.
It is done. <3
'you're too old for pokemon'
I believe we are called VETERAN TRAINERS, THANK YOU
Good luck affording a place to live. Forget being able to fucking eat “healthy” like you’re “supposed to” (aka, morally obligated to).
gamer nerds are so dramatic
I strongly encourage everyone to check out the tweet and marvel at nerds’ anguished realization that their heroes do not all share their insular mutated worldview
It made me so sad to know that Blake sees herself in such a negative way,I hope in future episodes she’ll begin to see herself as the beautiful and strong girl she really is
Every time we learn about Blake and what drives her/worries her, I identify with her more and more. And this episode was no different.As someone with anxiety, I have huge problems with confrontation. So I can totally understand where Blake is coming from.
I love Ruby so much because when she couldn’t get in touch with her friends she didn’t try to be a hero, she said “this is a dangerous situation and I’m going back to get my friends even if it means losing the immediate trail” because she recognized that it would be stupid for her to try and do that alone. Go Ruby
Last minute sketch before “The Coronation”. This is how I imagine the episode going down.
Not really, I just need something that won’t break my heart.
