This is a teaser for my second big project that I've been working on! Of course, this was heavily inspired by Rooster Teeth's very own Ten Little Roosters miniseries and I figured, it's the time when RWBY fans go crazy because we can't wait for Volume 3, and I thought it would to keep us on our toes to do a fun little whodunit!
EDIT: Since so many of you pointed out that "themself" is not a word, I have amended this.
TEN LITTLE HUNTERS
Ten little hunters all gathered to dine
One choked on a joke and then there were nine
Nine little hunters all took the bait
One died for their lover and then there were eight
Eight little hunters, a torch for the lemon
A light was snuffed out and then there were seven
Seven little hunters, three out of the mix
One sacrificed all and then there were six
Six little hunters, none yet to shrive
One ran from themselves and then there were five
Five little hunters, one behind a cage door
Curiosity killed the cat and then there were four
Four little hunters, one loved to make tea
One died like a god and then there were three
Left were three hunters
One's tables were spun
The killer cut down
And then there was one
Ruby – Weiss – Blake – Yang – Jaune – Nora – Pyrrha – Ren – Sun – Neptune
King Taijitu Venom
Juan Arc, Jaune's Mexican Cousin
Ruyi Bang & Jingu Bang
A Zombified Velvet
Rogue Weapons Locker
Ninjas of Love
Professor Port's Grimm Cages
A Walking, Talking, Dancing Grimm in a Top Hat
Drowning by Bathtub
A Room of Mirrors
Zwei the Dog
A few orders of business here: this mystery covers not only the whole of RWBY lore, but also some references to other fanfics, mythology that the characters are based on, as well as one or two external references and wordplay because I'm a little bit cruel. Hehe.
Second: beware the red herrings. You guys know that, right?
Third: I'm not quite working on this yet, as I still want to work a little more on Blake & Jaune's Infinite Playlist first, so it may be a bit before an actual chapter comes out. This is just to get you all worked up, because once again, I'm a heartless motherfucker.
Lastly: I think I will open up polls so that you guys can see how well your detective skills are after every chapter. I still don't know what I want to do for prizes, so just know that there will be prizes! (that, for the most part, don't involve me spending money, mind you)
SOOOOOOOO I guess I'll leave you to speculating. Happy sleuthing!
