Am I the only one who disagrees with the statement “it’s called RWBY, so it should be about team RWBY, not the others”?
Guys, team RWBY has had plenty of screen time in this volume. They’ve gone through some form of development, and we even learned a thing or two about them. We learned that Weiss…
Okay. Here’s a bet. I BET YOU Jaune will never even talk to Weiss again. Because all of that “he really, really appreciates her” stuff, was only if she was a love interest.
Also…I’ll take Weiss / Neptune seriously when they have any kind of conversation at all. (They’ve literally had none.) “You only want your own ships” It wouldn’t be hard. I’m reminded of what the Nostalgia Critic said about Mortal Kombat 2.
"Your heart belongs to another? Who? Kitana? That chick you’ve known for less than an hour? How does she own your heart? True, you just met this other woman, but give her a few minutes and you’ll have known her just as long."
I’d send you an ask to discuss this, but I can’t find your ask button, adn since this is now a two week old argument and you’re still harping on it, I’ll be blunt:
A) I’ll take that bet. Jaune is not nearly as shallow as you seem to think he is. He’s been show to care deeply about his friends and teammates, though he’s had a bad case of the dumb, which he is slowly getting over. you seem so rigidly certain that now that Jaune “has Pyrrha” he has no reason to talk to Weiss. Adoration doesn’t just go away. And if you’re talking in terms of the writers it wouldn’t make sense for Jaune to completely break communications with Weiss, even if their interactions were solely to drive Jaune’s character development. Teams RWBY and JNPR interact a lot so they’re going to be shown in the same room again, and they’re going to be interacting again.
B) you are absolutely wrong about Neptune and Weiss. they have had at least one conversation, in which Weiss instantly developed a crush on him, because teenage girl.
Your example doesn’t even hold because they’re not actually in a relationship yet, this is the part where they have those conversations you keep going on about and then decide if they want to move forward with the relationship. You keep acting as if the writers have draped a giant flag over them that says THESE TWO ARE A COUPLE when I have seen no indications that they’re actually pushing this relationship at all.
whatever happens next, this is most likely meant to be a learning experience for both Weiss and Neptune
so stop acting like it’s set in stone that they will become a couple and then it will fail because “good romance has to be earned”
you may very well be right that it will fail because of that, but why are you treating that like a bad thing? everytime you mention it it’s like your accusing the writers of not following their own rules, when you’re actually just stating that they most likely will follow those rules. I just don’t understand your argument man
