Hello all you readers out there. This is my first fanfic ever and I wanted to write a story about Jaune Arc so we'll see how this goes. I welcome criticism and ideas about where this story will go. I hope you guys enjoy.

I do not own RWBY. It belongs to Monty Oum

Jaune hated flying almost as much as he hated himself for lying and sneaking into Beacon. As soon as he saw the dust-plane he knew this was going to be unpleasant. Now here he was trying not to spill the contents of his stomach all over the floor of the dust-plane.

He didn't know if he was going to last much longer. Luckily a news report appeared and distracted him briefly from his upset stomach. The report was interrupted by the image of a middle-aged woman.

"Hello, and welcome to Beacon" she said

'Who's that' wondered Jaune

"My name is Glynda Goodwitch"


"You are among a privileged few who have received the honor of being selected to attend this prestigious academy! Our world is experiencing an incredible time of peace and as future Huntsmen and Huntresses it is your duty to uphold it. You have demonstrated the courage needed for such a task and now, it is our turn to provide you with the knowledge needed and the training to protect our world."

The woman now known as Glynda Goodwitch then disappeared.

Finally the dust plane landed not long after her speech and Jaune ran as fast as he could to find the nearest trash can. He spent around ten minutes just throwing up before he could finally recover.

Now he had one problem, he had no idea where he was going, before he could even ponder on this too long he noticed a large explosion up ahead of him.

'Wow, not even here a half hour and someone's already exploded. This academy is hardcore.' He thought.

He approached the scene to find a girl collapsed on the walkway. He thought it would be nice to help her up. 'After all strangers are friends you just haven't met yet.' He thought to himself.

"Hey…. I'm Jaune." He said

"Ruby, aren't you the guy that threw up on the ship?" she chuckled.

'Oh here we go again with this.' He thought.

They decided to go for a walk and chat a little while trying to find out where they were supposed to go.

"Look all I'm saying is that motion sickness is a much more common problem than people let on"

"Look I'm sorry, Vomit boy was just the first thing that came to mind."

"Oh yea, what if I called you crater face?"

"Hey that explosion was an accident!"

"Well the name's Jaune Arc, short, sweet, rolls off the tongue, ladies love it"

"Do they?"

"Yes…. Maybe….. No, not really."

Jaune was enjoying their conversation; usually his conversations don't go over very well since he was so horrible at not being clumsy and awkward around other people. They had remained silent for a few minutes until Ruby decided to show off her 'sweet heart'. The next thing Jaune knew he was face to blade with a gigantic scythe. 'HOLY SHIT' he thought to himself.

"Sooo, I got this thing." She said as she so casually planted it into the ground like it weighed nothing

"I… uh, can see that" Jaune tried to calmly state. "So your preferred weapon is a gigantic freaking scythe."

"Not only that but it's also a customizable, high impact, sniper rifle."

"A what?"

"It's also a gun."

"Oooh. That's… deadly"

"So what have you got?"

"I got a sword and a shield" he demonstrated as he pulled out his shielth and sword

"So what do they do?"

"The shield gets smaller so when I get tired of carrying it, I can just put it away."

"Wouldn't it weigh the same?"

"Yea, yea it does."

"Don't feel bad, I'm kind of a dork when it comes to designing weapons and I may have gone a bit overboard designing it."

"Wait wait wait, you made that?!"

"Of course, all students at Signal academy design their own weapons."

'This girl just keeps getting deadlier and deadlier. I couldn't even get creative with my Lego design kits and here she is designing a freaking scythe that can change into a sniper rifle. Better remember to not piss her off.' Jaune thought to himself.

"Didn't you make yours?" Ruby asked

"Not exactly… it's more of a hand me down. My great great grandfather used it to fight in the war."

"Sounds like more of a family heirloom to me."

Jaune was not exactly proud of this sword and shielth. Mostly because of the symbol that was on the shielth. His family crest, that crest alone reminded him of all the expectations that were put on him. Not to mention it was such a simple weapon compared to all the cool and complex weapons here at Beacon

"Well I like it! Not many people have an appreciation for the classics these days."

That surprised Jaune. Not many people really complemented on his weapon of choice. Jaune considered Ruby his friend now with that little comment.

"Thanks Ruby."

"So why did you help me back there in the courtyard?"

"Eh… Why not, my mom always said that strangers are just friends you haven't met yet."

That quote both inspired and depressed Jaune because it acted as a way to get through some of his hardest days but it also reminded him of his mother's death. Something that Jaune hated being reminded of.

"So do you know where we're going?" questioned Ruby

"Nope, I was following you. Do you think there might be a school directory, maybe a food court?"

Ruby giggled

"Some kind of recognizable landmark?"

She snickered again.

"Is that a no?"

"That's a no."

Well that was a thing. Anyways I hope you guys enjoyed the first chapter even though it's not much different from the regular show. Also a shout out to tjcharelot for being my editor and grammar nazi that he is. I plan to follow the canon story up to episode 16 with some alterations and I'll probably skip some parts just so I can get to the part in the story where I want it to be. Leave a review and all comments are welcomed. I would love to hear suggestions as to where this story should go but as far as a story I have pretty detailed plan as to where I want it to go but I'm open to suggestions. Thank you for your time and have a good one, Carnage out.
