pkempf chapter 7 . 3/31
This is a good story so far. Bummer that you feel this need to keep shoehorning random anti-"SJW" rants into it though.

I never liked when "MC" shares his gamer status no matter how "accidentaly" it happens, always seems forced and makes mc seem incompentent
Anon chapter 33 . 3/13
I saw this fic wasn't updated in... nearly five years. I saw the profile hasn't been updated for almost the same amount of time.
Yet I still read this fic.
That has reinforced exactly why I DON'T do that. Because I really like the fic, and yet it's highly likely it'll never get continued.

Anyways, author, if by some chance you see this, uh... would be pretty cool if you update this at some point? Please?
Old World chapter 33 . 2/25
I've followed this story when I found it in 2019. One of the first RWBY gamer fic and one of the best on the site.
This story is amazing, in that I could see this version of RWBY existing. Also is the potential that if this story continues that it could still follow into cannon without to much issues.
'Jaune' sure did a whole lot done in the small timeframe he had before Beacon, enough to shift the course of the entire series.
The aspect that I enjoyed the most, beyond the gamer feature, was the relationship building that the characters had. The build up was done through out the storyline with sorta believable reactions. The hook ups was not done immediately but done through personal hardships.
Do still hold out hope that this story will eventually updated, either here or on Ao3.

I'm interested in this. quite a lot actually. BUT THE WHOLE OF WHATS WRITTEN DOESNT EVEN GET TO BEACON. well it does but only to the point of him stepping off the airship and whatevers beyond that I didn't look past the first sentence. that's insane I dunno if I can wait that long for Canon. I'll admit I read mostly for character interactions so I'm more into how the main cast will react to new variables and stuff. gaw damn you can write though if you filled 33 chapters with stuff that ain't Canon

Absolute trash.
timberwolfst chapter 6 . 1/4
So, I'm re-reading your story (hope you pick it back up, btw) and it occurred to me that his amnesia can be explained away as part of his semblance (for those that know what it is). After all, RPG characters are usually dropped in cold. they've got basic skills and can interact but almost zero world knowledge or context. That's something that they have to learn as you play the game. He could justify his lack of knowledge as his semblance erasing it to be more like a game.
Diametrik chapter 2 . 1/2
Is speed rolled into strength? I only ask because there's no AGI stat, and you were talking about DEX as though it was a separate thing from his speed.

I was going to ask why they were training him, considering they were forbidden to by their parents, but, from that phone conversation, I guess Joan decided she had had enough and did it anyway,

Also, why does Jun have HP? She doesn't have Gamer's Body.
Diametrik chapter 1 . 1/2
If polygamy is normal, why is she sheepish and embarrassed about it? If anything, she should be confused about why Jaune is confused about their dad having two wives.
