Hey all, AFatFlyingWhale here. If you weren't already aware, I have a Pa Treon now, though fanfiction doesn't like that word.

THERE IS NOW A PUBLIC STAT SHEET FOR SYSTEMA!

tinyurl . com / SystemaStats


Main Project

Systema (RWBY)

A Jaune-centric Gamer fic, with a completely new system powering it. Takes inspiration from what has come before, but still strives for balance and equity with gameplay mechanics and story beats. Used to update weekly, now updates as soon as I get a chapter written. Can be anywhere from a week upwards, sorry


Everything else updates irregularly, as I really don't have an ability to stick to a schedule anymore.

Two Minutes Silence by catsvrsdogscatswin reviews
When Yang falls, its quiet. Calm. She did what she had to do. When Ruby and Blake fall, it's a jolt, a cold shock of horror that they didn't quite make it. When Weiss falls, it's almost with relief. Living or dead, she'll see them again. When Jaune falls, he thinks of his team, of one more letter knocked off of Team JNPR. When they wake up, they're at Beacon. Fix-it fic after V8.

Systema reviews
The System awakes, and so does Jaune Arc. Of course, one is awakening from an eons long slumber and the other went to bed too late the night before and slept in far too long. The System adjusts to a methodology suitable for a teenage boy, and as such accidentally invokes the god-given right of living a video game. Jaune's in for a wild ride.

Accidents Happen reviews
Accidents can happen in any line of work. Like, for example, villainy, where, for example, a misfired bolt of electricity hits a teleporter at the exact wrong moment that then tears a hole into the fabric of reality that somehow sucks eight people through. With 8 Hunters suddenly on Earth, in the middle of a combat zone in the USJ... well, it certainly wasn't deliberate.

Unending Horizon reviews
"So it's like a movie night, except with the Professors?" Technically, Nora was right. If you considered being taken from your own reality into an alternate one in order to watch different versions of yourself and your friends on a big screen, with an effortlessly terrifying being tending the bar as a movie night. At least the chairs were comfortable? Multiverse Theatre Fic.
