Author has written 18 stories for RWBY.
Coeur here, nice to meet you. I'm a writer in England who enjoys the RWBY archive, as well as a few crossover archives. I'm an active writer, with experience in the magazine industry - and hope you enjoy my work!
If you would like to support me, then my P atreon link is below. Just so you know, my fanfiction is always free - and being a supporter on my P atreon does not give you access to any extra fanfiction. That would be illegal. What you get is lessons, articles on how to write your own story (that can be fanfiction or original work, I have students of both) - and also access to me for any questions or advice you might need. As well as any original work of my own unrelated to fanfic. If in doubt, feel free to PM me to ask.
If you want to donate towards me as thanks for my fanfiction, then that is very kind of you. But the P atreon itself is dedicated more towards becoming a writer. The reason I include it here is quite simple... why should you trust a teacher, if you are not certain how well they can write?
I use my fanfiction to promote my P atreon.
Check me out, and if you can spare even a dollar a month - it will mean the world to me!
P atreon - Links to said site do not work, and in fact the word appears to be banned - even if what i offer on it isn't against the terms and conditions of this site.
Either way, you will need to close the spaces on the below and write it into your browser.

My Goal as a Writer here
To write consistently good stories, showing improvement on each fic. I don’t want to be a one-hit wonder, something I worried about when writing “One Good Turn” – thankfully I think I have proved not to be, with the release of Professor Arc. But I want to take it further, producing a third, and even a fourth and more – high quality fics. This will become increasingly difficult however, as I explore more adventurous pairings.
Eventually I hope to run through most of the female cast. I am not a fan of the Yuri/Yaoi pairings, though can happily read them. My problem simply stems from a lot of them featuring very unrealistic romance, i.e. Characters only seem to fall in love because the author wants them to, no desire, no build-up, etc... I will consider writing one after the Jaune pairings are done, we shall see.
Upcoming Story List - Updated 20/06/2017
The below list has been updated, including details of new fics coming out, what they will replace, and also when they will fit into the timetable. As some original ones have been pushed back, I've tried to include a brief "reason" as to why they are not coming out yet.
To Replace Professor Arc:
In the Kingdom's Service
Jaune Arc, member of Vale's Secret Service, or at least that's what he's been told. All he knows is that they found out about his faked transcripts, and now he works in the interests of the Kingdom. With terrorists on the horizon, not to mention a shady organisation and an even shadier group operating under Ozpin, what's a bumbling teen turned secret agent to do?
(Not specifically a Kingsman crossover, it's just that Vale calls itself a Kingdom.)
To Replace The Entertainer:
Service with a Smile
When Jaune's forged transcripts were rebuffed, his only option was to return home in disgrace or forge a new life in Vale. Opening a diner was an impetuous decision, being good at it a stroke of luck. Becoming the favourite haunt for students, teachers and criminals alike…? That was neither, but it sure did keep things interesting. Wasn't life like this supposed to be easier?
To Replace Not this Time, Fate:
Two Stories - but each will be updated every other week. In essence, the update schedule will still be one a week, but you'll get one of these on one week, and then the other on the next, etc... this is due to one of them being a collab fic.
A Hunter or Something - Collab with College Fool
Jaune was a hunter, hunting animals from a young age. Not Grimm, and never people. Not like the so-called 'real' Hunters he wanted nothing to do with. But when an absent sister asks him to help rescue a missing Huntsman, Jaune Arc and Lie Ren will both have to learn what it means to be true Huntsmen if they're to survive the Grimm Lands.
The Beacon Civil War
Jaune Arc wasn't the best student, and he certainly wasn't a hero. When the professors of Beacon invent a war game that pits boys against girls across campus, however, the beleaguered men didn't need a bumbling idiot. They needed a leader… a hero. And Jaune Arc's been nominated for the job, whether he wants it or not.
Comedy based on Ciaphas Cain story writing.
Two scoops Jaune x Neo
"There weren't many job opportunities for a mute girl in Vale, not with her skill-set anyway. Surviving day to day, trying to cover the rent so she didn't end up out on the streets, it looked like Roman's offer would be the only way for her to survive... That was, until she found a small ice-cream store, run by a young man willing to give even someone like her a try..."
Delayed Reason: While originally, this was planned as a "Jaune doesn't go to Beacon" story, during planning this led to problems with the wide array of cast and how to bring them into the story. As such, I tried to plan it out and ran into road blocks. I actually want to wait on this to see how Neo is included by RT moving forwards, and personally believe Two Scoops might fit better as a Jaune x Neo set after the events of S3, in which Jaune has lost Pyrrha, and Neo has lost Roman. That way, the Two Scoops can also refer to two people sharing an ice-cream over sorrow.
A few seconds too late - Jaune x Ruby
A few seconds can make all the difference in life. Qrow tried his best, but he was a few seconds late that fateful night when Yang took Ruby in search of her mother. And as is often the case in life, the innocent must pay the price. Ruby lost more than just an eye that night, her innocence and trust went with it. Now entering Beacon Ruby is a colder, more efficient hunter - with a burning hatred for all things Grimm.
Delayed Reason: While an interesting character study in itself, it was difficult to create a lasting plot for this that would have made sense and kept reader interest. I've not given up on the idea, but need more time to plan it. I don't want to start something with no plan in mind and then run into problems later.
Alpha Male - Jaune x Raven / Jaune x Yang (Yep, it's the most twisted love triangle ever)
Jaune Arc was human - or at least, on first glance that was the case. Certainly his father Nicholas was human, but his mother had perhaps been less so, depending upon who you asked. But when both his human father and his faunus mother were killed, he fell in with the only crowd who would take him. The White Fang.
Trained alongside Adam, serving under Raven, he was considered one of the best. But even the best can fail, and when your punishment is an attempt at "reformation" by attending an elite school for hunters? With a girl who looked eerily like the woman who trained him, and another who knows how stained his hands are? Well... things can soon become awkward.
Delayed Reason: Raven's lore is totally different from what it was before, and this would now not make sense. While there is possibility for a fic in which Jaune is from Raven's tribe, we need more details of it and how Adam fits into it. In the original plan of this, Jaune being part of the WF was important. Now, since that cannot be the case, the fic doesn't stand on two feet yet.
Winter is coming - Jaune x Winter (dem punz)
She was a person of great importance. A specialist, an heiress - a businesswoman. He was nothing more than an entertainer. Some nebulous musician that caught her eye at a recent networking soiree... he played good music, and she liked that.
Hiring him to be her personal musician for a week was nothing more than a whim. She had no need for attachments... never had, never would.
But why can't she let him go?
Delayed Reason: Not feeling it at the moment, and the Schnee family dynamic is a lot more revealed now. Don't want to get details wrong.
Definitely not Jaune Arc - Jaune x ?
Jaune Arc never existed. It was just the cover they came up with so that he could infiltrate Beacon with the other first years. All the better for him to try and locate this spy that Ozpin fears might be among the students.
How hard can pretending to be an idiot be? He just needs to play the fool and be a perfectly normal, sociable teenager. Which might be difficult, now that he thinks about it. Especially when his name is Jaune Goodwitch and he's been home-schooled by Glynda all his life.
"Wait, you mean people don't communicate through glares?"
Delayed Reason: No plot plan as of yet.
Yang lost an arm, but Cinder lost her life - and the disaster was averted. Beacon was saved, and once the repairs were done, life continued as normal for most. Not so for Yang Xiao-Long, who not only lost her arm, but also her place in Beacon. Unwilling to accept the idea of a year's rest and rehabilitation, and desperate to continue the fight, she was ready for any opportunity. When Ozpin offered her a chance to head a crack police unit dedicated to dealing with the remnant's of Cinder's rebellion - White Fang and all - she leapt at the chance.
A shame it turned out to be yet another cynical attempt to force her into bed rest and retirement. The team is less a crack team and more a team of cracks - criminals and old enemies - each desiring to earn their freedom through service. Sadly, that service has seen no results, and the force is due to be shut down in a week. Once it goes, she'll have proven everyone right - and quickly be sent back to Patch in defeat.
Or so everyone thinks.
She'll prove them all wrong, even if that means leading a team of the people she hates most!
