Volume 5, Chapter 8: Alone Together

RWBY: Volume 5, Chapter 8: Alone Together

Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang are each entangled in journeys of their own, but they all share one destination: Haven Academy. Whether it's the promise of ancient relics, mystical maidens, or simply more power, it's clear that the stage for the next great battle for Remnant has been chosen. The question is, with so many players in this game, who's going to come out on top?

      He wasn't a "warchief". Ghira was in charge of the WF when it was a peaceful protest group. Sienna Khan turned it into a paramilitary.

    First act: introduce heroes and have a lighthearted victory against evil.

    Second act: get beaten up badly by the bigger evil and everything looks bleak.

    Third act: come back and beat up bigger evil. Hero or heroes may die in the finale, depending on what type of hero arc it is. Considering it's a team arc, it'll maybe be a victorious team at the finale rather than a hero sacrifice.


    So, are we on the 3rd act, or are things going to get a lot worse? Is there still a nice long list of people going to be offed?

    So, I wasn't sure how to start this but..I suppose and apology is in order. Im sorry for how I reacted when episode 8 came out. Regardless of personal opinions on the content, I try to avoid outright arguing with anyone, and I failed in doing that. 


    I'll do my best to ensure it doesn't happen again, and if anyone was bothered by my comments, I do apologize.


    Having had a few days to cool off from all the arguing, heres my FINAL stance on the Ilia situation, and after this I will not bring it up again unless prompted.


    Can villian LGBT characters exsist? Absolutely. I have never claimed otherwise.


    Am i tired of seeing more openly gay 

    villains than i am heros however? Oh yeah.  


    Do i think RT had bad intentions with this? 

    After a lot of thinking, No. But i DO think its a bummer that their going this route. 


    That's all i got. i tried to be as neutral in this response as I could. Im not really angry at RT anymore just..disapointed i guess. I was really hoping it wouldn't be like this, but theres nothing i can do.

      If your point is bitch bitch i want a gay bi trans main character than thats pathetic. If gender and sexual preference mean so much to you stop watching rwby and expecting this to be the highlight of it. Rwby shouldnt be about LGBT issues, it shouldnt be about shipping. Just watch.

      2 months ago

      Openly gay vs Closet gay (with lots of hints) makes little difference in my book.  One is for fans to theorize and fanfic about, the other is for faster exposition to conclude a story arc.  Both narratives have their place.

    • Praedoran FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      However, it should be noted that Illya is remarkedly different from say, Torchwick (openly evil and loved it).  Illya is a redeemable, but misguided, character.  She'll either have a turnabout moment or fall due to her own inability to see Adam for the scum he is.

    • chaos12135

      Ilia is a swing character, she can switch to the good side or bad side at any time, she just needs a different type of push. She had a huge potential for a character arch, in which I wouldn't say she will stay as antagonist forever, though would I say she will go join team RWBY; no. Towards the end of the series, or possibly seasons, I think she will help take down the white fang, including Salem in later series. Though this is just my opinion, and it could be completely untrue.


      As for their sexual orientation for Ilia, I don't really see it being a problem if she remains an antagonists through the entire series, or switches sides eventually. I don't see why her orientation ever matters, if anything it fuels the story between Blake/Ilia.

      @adam2186

      Did she say she wanted an LGBT main character? No. She said she's tired of seeing more VILLAINS be LGBT rather than HEROES. Said nothing about it being a main character. And since you're being a disrespectful asshole and suggesting they stop watching RWBY, i suggest you should stop watching instead, as the RWBY community shouldn't have anti-LGBT bigots and homophobes like you.

    • adam2186 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      I actually considered this. If he captured her and said somrthing like "you want to help humans so much than be a human like them" and cuts them off. I know its extreme but thats who Adam is in thr show. Honestly if other fans are surprised by this they clearly don't know Adams character

    • BlakesTrashyWaifu

      2 months ago

      Bumblebee is the ship name for Blake and Yang. Yang's eyes have been doing that since the yellow trailer. I'm guessing you haven't been in this fandom for long (that was not meant to be in an offensive way).

    • Another_Troll

      2 months ago

      Bumblebee is the name of 3 things: the Yang/Blake team attack, Yang's motorcycle, and the fan name for a Yang/Blake relationship.

      Her eyes dont become red cause of her semblance. Do you actually know what her semblance is? Her eyes change based on a mixture of genetics and emotion.

      I started watching this after the first two volumes were out because I wasn't aware it had started airing. I have watched it faithfully since then so not exactly new to the fandom. I am just used to more obvious ship names where it is usually a mesh of the character names. As far as her eyes go I might have noticed it in passing before but it has been more noticeable in the past few episodes when she has been a little heated that is why I asked. Thank you for the answers.

    So has Weiss actually told anyone about her being disowned by her father? If she hasn't, that fits. But if she has, Yang's whole spiel feels kinda... err... in poor taste. "You have no idea what it's like to be alone, person who literally just walked away from her family/home/country with little to no hope of ever returning!"

    • joshuaa10000 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      I doubt she has told them, it would not have any true relevance to anything but it would make them feel more for her (Weiss's) situation. 

    • maxsk1 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      If you look back in past volumes, she has never mentioned her dis-functional family to team RWBY before.

    This is why you don't negotiate with terrorists. And why meeting with an enemy's weak link to wear a wire. I bet ya that Blake is gonna fail and her father is gonna die but her mom will survive and the White Fang will be able to spin it off. Seeing as how the series has went that's a likely outcome.

    • dimensionsatire

      2 months ago

      That seems to be the way this is going. Kill the dad, mom's a wreck, Blake has that character growth moment/episode and gains the strength and determination to rise above the adversity and truly take the pain of loss and transform it into a force for good to fight back against the Fang

      If her mother survives .. spinning it off would be impossible. As well as quite a few white fang corpses around they cant just go ''Ohh ahh Huntsman..did..it.. our members defended..him" Come now. Also Blake leadinging the Anti-White fang adam faction AND being in team RWBY dont seem to be hand in hand activities.. So if that occurs wouldnt mom be leading it? Or hell maybe Ghria survives and is severely wounded.

    Also Illiya is sapphic! Now all we need is a redemption arc and more  confirmed lgbt+ characters bc having the only known lgbt+ character be a villain is in poor taste

    • wander4wonder FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      2 months ago

      It would be in poor taste to think that just because a character is lgbt that we must make them the hero and never assume that all kinds of people can have all kinds of orientations. It would be rediculous to think that RT is characterizing Illiya this way because they dissaprove of the lgbt community and that they should be villanized, just look at how many employees at RT are lgbt. Sexual orientation is a neutral characteristic and should be described to both good and bad guys to show how anyone can be straight or gay or etc.

    • emilyblack

      2 months ago

      I mean, I agree in a way Wander, but the thing is when the only openly lgbt character you have in the main cast is working for a family murdering terroists-Im well aware theres been a couple background characters-it can be seen as kinda bad.


      As someone IN the community myself, I won't sit here and lie i would most certainly prefer if Ilia was a hero instead.


      I don't think RT had bad intentions, but it does comes across a little rough.

    • hoysynsauce

      2 months ago

      emilyblack I think that logic only applies to people who have that negative mindset about LGBT+ people in the first place, and only really a small subset of them. If you're neutral or supportive of the community, you're hardly going to turn round and go "Huh, Ilia is evil, and Ilia is LGBT+ of some variety, guess LGBT+ people are evil", even for large number of LGBT+ villains. Sure there's technically correlation there but there's no reason for the two facts to be linked - they're not linking any of her bad behaviour to being LGBT+ after all

      You know they can't kill her, not yet anyway, first she will be broken by the loss of her husband. Yeah it's an inevitability, Blakes dad dies then looses any reason for carrying for the White Fang and also becomes an emotional pin cusion with guilt  cutting through her. You know I just thought there is a possibility she will go feral on Adam and eat his carcass like a wild animal, then she could "fill the void" so to speak.
