You will be missed.
It's been a long ass time since I updated this. But hey, what the heck, why not now? I've got some explaining to do anyway.
RWBY has been both a blessing and a curse, to me. Three years ago, the mere thought of dropping the show was ludicrous. Sure, the show had some rough spots, but I loved it with everything I had. Volume 4 changed much of that. I know many fans liked it - keep in mind this is my own opinion - but it disappointed bad enough I had to stop watching completely. After two vibrant years of contributing to the community with ridiculous ship-fics and romance oneshots, I went cold turkey.
I just didn't like what I wrote anymore. The more episodes I watched of vol 4, the more my head drew a blank. It wasn't that I couldn't write, but the stuff I churned out for RWBY felt stale. Lifeless. I looked at my recent spade of mid 2016 to 2017 RWBY stories and compared them to the ones I wrote throughout 2014 - 2015. To me, it was clear that my heart was no longer there. I know I'm not the only one. So many great writers for the fandom dropped off the map as the volumes went by. I wanted to be one of them. I wanted to stop before I started hating the show. I wanted to at least keep some of the good memories I had. It worked for a little while.
My purging method? Time and distance. I wiped everything related to RWBY off my Youtube, stopped tumblr, stopped following the show. My god, it was painful. I stopped writing for RWBY for months. Trust me when I say I've never loved a show like I did with RWBY. The characters, setting, stupid plot lines. I loved it all. Even now, I think back to how I used to churn out words by the thousands with excitement. I miss those days.
I've started writing original fiction, dabbling in other fandoms to get my rhythm back. Didn't work at first, but it's gotten better now. I haven't watched anything remotely pertaining to the show in... what? A year and a half? I couldn't bring myself to do it in 2017, but maybe this year, it'll be different. The thought of catching up with the show doesn't make my heart feel like someone's punched a hole in it, anymore. Just a small, empty nigging. (Edit: Just finished Vol 4. The beginning was trash but it was pretty alright by the end. Vol 5, too, but there are wayyy too many exposition scenes. On the bright side...GO FREEZERBURN!)
The good news is that I've picked up steam for Blood Instinct. I rewrote the fucking thing so many times I got sick of looking at it. But this third reboot is coming along nicely. Let's hope it stays that way. I'm considering writing more ship fics because god I miss them. Maybe by next year, I'll be ramped up enough to take commissions, eh? That aside, I'll be rewriting many of my unfinished RWBY stories. Warning in advance, many will be completely different and a complete 180 from it's original premise. Red and Pink is probably gonna take several years, but I considering how I'm still here, there's hope for it yet.
All I can say is, it feels good to be back.

A wolf!faunus Ruby story
Credit to this idea goes to an anon who sent it to me via tumblr! Thank you again anon! :D A ladybug story in which Ruby works for the white fang. She comes across Blake in the hideout on several occasions and becomes very interested in the alluring cat Faunus. When Blake leaves the White fang, Ruby takes it upon herself to bring her back with the help of Adam and Cinder. Ruby infiltrates Beacon as one of the new students and knocks over Weiss's stuff around Blake because she knew that the cat faunus would intervene to help a fellow faunus out. Slowly Blake begins to trust her and Ruby starts having second doubts about her mission.
