Poll: Which characters that I've introduced do you think have worked out LEAST well? Vote Now!
Author has written 7 stories for RWBY, Knights of Sidonia/シドニアの騎士, and Steven Universe.
HEY THERE IS A POLL UP THERE AND YOU SHOULD VOTE IN IT:
In all seriousness, it's very useful for me to have some sort of feedback on specific elements of the story. I need to know how you all feel about the characters, how things are progressing, so on. If you don't mind clicking a box or two and submitting your answer, that would be a great help to me.
Anyways, I'm a Canadian University student so I don't have a lot of time to write, but I get stuff out there when I do. I follow the Feast - or - Famine rule, so expect two chapters side-by-side and then nothing for a couple weeks. It's just how I write, and how I try to keep within the confines of the canon that I try to conform to (mostly).
Below here is a list of useful links, go ahead and use them if you want!
For those of you interested in stats for RWBY, some analysis of the world in general, I have some good links for you! I'll update this as I come across more interesting data.
There is a three part series by Reddit User GreatWyrmGold on the nature of Grimm as a threat in RWBY.
It's a good read, and I would recommend it for anyone doing a fic that has a lot to do with Grimm or their role in Remnant. I certainly have read it and believe them to be well though out arguments about the place of Grimm in a narrative in RWBY.
Another piece is a map analysis by Wiki user Shadow at Morning. Be warned, (s)he/they get very in depth with their analysis, but the entire thing is worth a read. It puts into perspective just how large the Kingdoms are (in terms of the cities).
A little function I use in order to generally come up with a number of Grimm 't' after 'n' years of an initial group of 's' is as follows;
t = s * (0.985*n)
This gives a pretty good distribution curve if you use some big numbers. In a (t, n) format, some notable numbers remaining of 12 million Grimm are as follows:
(1, 11.8m), (10, 10.3m), (50, 5.64m), (100, 2.6m), (300, 128k), (700, 305), and after 1000 years the number of Grimm remaining is 7. It's a very small percentage of 12 million, but the breakdown makes sense to me even without any adjustments for things like survival going up over the years (300) or the fact that mortality would be very high in the first few years.
I'm using this in Howling at the Moon because Grimm are sort of important in that story and age plays a big role in Grimm psyche. This formula isn't exact by any measure, but it's what I'm using to assume the population spread of Grimm among ages.
