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.

  • Establishing information
  • Statistical inferrence
  • Counterpoints
  • 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).

  • Shadow At Morning's cartographic analysis
  • 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.

    The Duel by Simply Christian reviews
    It began when Yang Xiao Long struck Weiss Schnee, and the heiress took that as a challenge, one she eagerly accepted. The time: now. The location: here. The weapon…

    Howling at the Moon reviews
    Young Grimm are reckless, Old Grimm are cautious, Ancient Grimm learn. The White Wolf among beowolves has lived its life in fear of the creations of man, and now has a chance to learn of the properties of dust, blade, and machines. This is the story about the learnings of a beast, not the triumphs of man. Now updated with Ending #2.

    The Writing on the Wall reviews
    Cinder finds herself floating on the surface of death when her carefully laid plans fall apart at the seams. She is no longer in control of even her own mortality as she finds herself being quietly and deliberately mauled by some monster. Her consciousness remains to taunt her in these final moments, even as a Beast of Grimm puts a fine point on the list of her accomplishments.

    Echoes of the Howl reviews
    These are chapters of 'Howling at the Moon' which were ultimately scrapped. Any ones which I replace or wholly remove will be put in here for posterity. In case the chapter naming is weird, each bunch is a 'version' of written events. First chunk: First Gen. Second Chunk: Second Gen.

    In a Mountain's Heart reviews
    Ruby has searched high and low for an old friend lost in battle. She stands atop a chilly peak looking into the maw of a mountain and wonders whether or not she has the strength to continue. She pushes on, broken and tired, unknowing of what will await her at the end of the line. (Oneshot)

    Adventure, Three Times a Week!
    Connie gets a chance to see little chunks of the world that she normally wouldn't be able to, allowing her to flex her newly developed swordplay. It will mean danger, suspense, surprise... And of course the adventure that we all want, but few really get the chance to go on. A light-hearted and Connie-centric series.

    Untitled RWBY Drabble
    Writing this to get the RWBY out of my system so I can focus on my OW. Might poke this once in a while when I get stuck but since I don't see much of a plot to keep with I'm probably going to leave it as-is.
