Well I am surprised that I actually managed to write this before I leave. Well guys the day is here, tomorrow I leave for the army. I'll be staying in a hotel on monday, and then I ship out on Tuesday. From there its off to basic for maybe about two months, and then after that to AIT until maybe March, depends on when I get started.

Well, we all knew this day was coming. But now that its here, I can't believe it. All my life I wanted to serve, and I'm finally going to do it. Don't worry, I'll still check in, but I have a duty to do, so I won't be writing or updating as much.

So as of now, my stories will be going on Hiatus.

Meanwhile in a cave somewhere

A woman was sitting down after a long day of killing things. Another day of securing a future for her tribe, ensuring their survival for a short time until they had to fight again, now it was time to relax. Luckily the cave she was staying in currently had a generator hooked up, so if she wanted to, she could have some more modern comforts. Hence the fact that she was now pulling a strawberry daquiri out of a fridge, and turning on the tv.

Most people who knew her would be surprised by the sight.

A woman who is part of a tribe of killers drinks strawberry daiquiris? Wow…

But Raven didn't care. She turned on the tv, unknown to most people, she did actually enjoy this modern comfort. Mostly to see how soft the rest of the world had gotten. That made her realize that her tribe was going to survive while the city folk grew soft and complacent. Most of the time, the news on the screen didn't concern her, and she only used it to laugh at the people that watch this expecting to be informed. She took a sip of her drink as she listened to the broadcast.

"In recent news, a new name and face has recently performed with Team DSCO at a charity concert for Vale. Reports coming in that new singer Jeremiah Branwen….." At this Raven's eyes went wide as she turned around and looked at the screen.

"Branwen?" That couldn't be right.

Nobody of her tribe used the same name as her. Her parents were gone. And the only one with her last name was Qrow. And there was no way that he could-

"It's time we go back to hanging them high." The man on the screen sang as she took a good look at him.

"…It can't be…" Raven said to herself as she was very skeptical.

She took a quick look at his eyes, they were blue, not red like the rest of her tribe. He shaved his head, so it was hard to see if he had the same black hair that was also common in the tribe. And his face was covered by a beard, which again made it hard to check out his facial features. Then she took a picture of his face. She walked over to her portable laptop and opened up a file.

She pulled up her old team picture and compared the now named Jeremiah to her brother on the screen. She took a quick glance at Jem, then at Qrow, then at Jem, and back to Qrow.

After a few moments of observing she put the phone down and let out a deep breath.


She picked up her sword and got ready to leave.

She needed to have a chat with her brother.

With Team RWBY

"I can't believe it! Can you believe it Yang! Our Cousin just married Winter! That means Weiss is family now!" Ruby was so excited, Weiss was her best friend, and now she was technically a relative! It was amazing! SO AMAZING!

"Easy Ruby, she would still technically be a distant cousin at most I believe." Yang honestly wasn't sure. She didn't know if that would make them cousins in law or something else.

"Who cares?! I'm celebrating!" Ruby was on a bit of a sugar high.

When they got to the reception, they found out that the caterers Winter had sought out had really done a good job. At first Team RWBY was worried that it was going to be all prim and proper because Winter was in charge of it. But she actually did something completely different. While there was a part of the reception hall that was more proper and filled with fine dishes, there was also a second part of it that was filled with more common food and drink that she requested as a favor for Jeremiah. And she also made sure to have casks of whiskey brought out for him and his family. In other words, Jem was SO glad he wifed her.

Granted he wasn't allowed to drink himself into a stupor, he promised Winter he wouldn't get drunk on their wedding night, but he was allowed a glass or two. Meanwhile, Qrow wasn't allowed to drink more than a glass because Jem promised his new wife that he would keep an eye on Qrow and make sure he wasn't drinking too much.

"Hey, where is Weiss?" Yang asked as Weiss wasn't with them.

"She should be in the coat room." Ruby opened the door.

"Weiss! Come on! Join the pa….whats that?" Ruby sped over and snatched a letter from Weiss's hand.

"HEY! RUBY!" Weiss tried to snatch the letter back, only for her efforts to be in vain.

Ruby was currently zipping around the room away from Weiss as she read the letter. Her face took on a look of surprise, but then she had a grin that grew bigger and bigger.

"OOOOOHHH! LOOK! WEISS HAS AN ADMIRER!" Ruby started showing the letter to Blake and Yang.

"What? No way!" Yang snatched it from her hand.

"Let me see!"

"RUBY!" Weiss yelled as she snatched the letter from them.

She couldn't believe this! She was just reading the letter in peace! And then Ruby had to come and snatch it away! Why couldn't she mind her own business.

"Sorry Weiss! You're family now! That means we get to mess with you."

"What kind of family is that?!"


As the RBY of team RWBY was ganging up on Weiss. Jem and Winter were sitting at a table in the reception hall. Dandy an his team offered to do the music. So they didn't have to waste money on hiring a band. And he had to admit, it was nice to save money. Granted, both Jem and Winter were rich, so they could afford the finest stuff if they wanted, but as both learned, they were both cheap as hell.

"I can't believe we finally did it." Winter was smiling as she looked down at her wedding ring.

"You know, a few years ago, if you told me I was going to travel to Remnant, date Winter Schnee and eventually end up marrying her, I would probably laugh and say that would only happen in my most wildest fantasies." Jem joked as he still couldn't believe this.

"Your sister….seems…odd…." Winter pointed out how she was aggresively eating meat while gazing at Torchwick.

"Oh…yeah, well….my sister isn't exactly well rounded in social situations." Jem scratched the back of his head.

"Meaning?" Winter didn't understand what he was getting at.

"Well, you see how she's flirting with Roman?" Winter didn't see what Jem was implying.

"That's flirting? She's just staring at him while taking huge bites out of her meat."

"That's because when it comes to flirting, she's pretty much Tormund from Game of Thrones."

Winter just rolled her eyes at that. She appreciated the show, but Jem and his family were obsessed with it. Especially with the whole SUPPOSED Brienne/Tormund shipping. Seriously, he creepily looks at her once and that means they're going to bone?

Then again, all Winter had to do was give Jem bedroom eyes, and they would be stripped faster than an altar boy at the pope's house.

"Your parents are having fun…." Winter pointed to Ma and Pa who were currently square dancing.

"Grandmama is showing all the caterers how to cook." Jem pointed to various food carts appearing out of nowhere.

"And…..our parents are nowhere to be seen…." Winter couldn't find Qrow or Willow, and she was a little worried.

"Don't worry, they went to go supervise the wine casks."

"….Who would have thought alcoholism would be something to bond over?"

"….Winter…..you do realize who you're talking to right?"

"Okay, Point taken."

Suddenly he saw Dandy motion towards him.

"Oh by the way, I have a surprise for you." Jem stood up from the table.

"And what would that be?" Winter smiled as she was sure nothing he could do could shock her.

"Well, I may have told Dandy to help me with a request." He said as he held his hand out for her to take.

Winter raised an eyebrow. What could he have asked Dandy for? And why was she being led out onto the dance floor? Why was everyone suddenly giving them space. She had so many questions. All of a sudden she took notice of Jem's collar and how she saw a small mic attached to it.

"No way…" She said as a light shown on them.

"Hit it Dandy." To that, the lion faunus gave a thumbs up.

Music started to play as Winter felt like blushing as they started lightly dancing. Nothing crazy, bu something suitable for a wedding.

And then Jem started to sing.

*Play: Living our love song: Jason Michael Carrol*

Baby, when I look at you
With your hair falling down in your baby blues
Standing there across the room
I get so lost in the way you move

Winter had to admit, she was not expecting to hear this today. In fact, she was sure the band would take care of all the music. But the fact that Jem had actually chosen to sing for her personally was a treat.

And he even picked one of her favorite songs.

Which was weird, because he wasn't the biggest fan of Jason Michael Carroll because he wasn't sure what to classify him as.

It makes me reminisce, back to years ago
On a night like this
Teary-eyed, as you took my hand
And I told you that I'd be your man
So many things have come, so many things have gone

She was being held close to him. His voice was strong, but it wasn't overpowering. He wasn't singing so that it sounded like he was yelling to her face. More like his voice was soothing and melodic. Course that may have been because he was trying really hard to make Winter happy and he didn't want to look like an idiot at the same time.

The things he did for love.

One thing that's stayed the same is
Our love's still going strong

Baby just look at us, all this time and we're still in love
Something like this just don't exist between a
Backwoods boy and a fairytale princess

Winter had to let out a small giggle at that, of course most people would be surprised by their relationship, a member of a prestigious family with a redneck. It was certainly a point of amusement for some people.

People said it would never work out
But living dreams, we shattered all doubts
It feels good to prove 'em wrong
Just livin' our love song

He twirled her a bit as he finished the first chorus. The crowd was just watching as the two were dancing. This was their chance to sit back and watch how the couple interacted with each other. From the way the rough and tumble backwoods boy seemed to blend with the graceful dignity of the Schnee.

Although technically that would be Winter Schnee Cotton Branwen.

….Yeah she was going to have to shorten her name to something?

Maybe just Winter Branwen.

Oh darling, would you look at me
With my heart beatin' fast, and my shakin' knees
It's pretty hard to believe
After all these years, I still need you this badly
You're dancing in my arms
With a spotlight moon in a sea of stars
Oh girl we've come so far
Everything I want is everything that you are
Just wanna lay you down, say I love you
Without a sound
I think you know what I'm talkin' about

Winter wasn't sure if he was being romantic or making a sex joke at the same time. From the way he sang. He obviously meant it with all the love he had.

Hence why he wiggled his eyebrows to also show that he was also making a sex joke.

Meh, she figured. She would be more disappointed if he didn't make a dick joke.

Even if it was under the radar.

Baby just look at us, all this time and we're still in love
Something like this just don't exist between a
Backwoods boy and a fairytale princess
People said it would never work out
But living dreams, we shattered all doubts
It feels good to prove 'em wrong
Just livin' our love song

The song was coming to a finish as the two were coming closer together, their lips almost connecting as Jem seemed to almost whisper this last verse to her. Even though everyone could still hear them.

It was almost like they were in a bubble and nothing could get to them.

Baby just look at us, all this time and we're still in love
Something like this just don't exist between a
Backwoods boy and a fairytale princess
People said it would never work out
But living dreams, we shattered all doubts
It feels good to prove 'em wrong
Just livin' our love song

As soon as he finished the final verse, he gave Winter a kiss, which got the attendees of the wedding clapping and hollering. Well the hollering was from Grandmama and Mama.

"JEM!" Momma yelled.


"You can now ding ding because you have the wedding ring!"
