    Thing is, they could have sailed BS by now but they haven't.


    The scene with Blake and Sun after Adam ran away would have been the optimal time to push it. 


    Black Sun is very unlikely right now, especially now Blake has reunited with her team. I really question if Sun will even feature next volume.

    The only thing that isn't really that subjective about Blake ships is that both Yang and Sun are very likely attracted to her, and Ilia definitely is,

    Do you think that "All That Matters" is a BB song or a Team RWBY song?

    Why not both?

    100%. I noted that scene in my conversation with Leonthekillr, that it was a prime opportunity to do something concrete for BlackSun, a perfect opportunity for Blake to kiss him or something similar, instead she just puts her hand on his shoulder and says 'be careful'. That was a perfect potential BS moment that CRWBY passed up on. That's likely meaningful.

    I agree with this. Kind of more of a gut feeling regarding Yang, a bit more obvious for Sun, and certainly for Ilia. Blake's got a lot of romantic attention flowing her way.

    I will point out Yang's "what if I needed her there for me" from Alone Together, the same episode we find out that Ilia had a thing for Blake, as being pretty heavy handed.

    Yeah, there does seem to be a connection there. I can't imagine both those scenes being in the same episode was a coincidence.

    It's cool. I had you covered. Honestly, I didn't know you commissioned this. I'm glad you did, though, because this image truly is beautiful. Just like Blake & Yang.

    Appreciate it! And I'm really glad you like it! I'm pretty happy with how it came out. There is a NSFW version that I can only share privately (was part of the terms of the commission, that the NSFW version would be Patreon exclusive except I can share it privately). If you'd like it, let me know!

    Because their personalities just work together, and their flaws are such that they both will have work towards overcoming them for the other's sake. What more is that they seem deeply affected by whatever happens to the other, in many (good) ways Blake is the 'Yin' to Yang's Yang.

    This post came across my tumblr feed. I think she talks sense, and it gives me more hope. Link at the end.


    "i see a lot of y’all trippin over bumbleby today (this isn’t a vaguepost, a lot of my dash is talking about it, and i know it’s a constant worry in this fandom anyway) so i’m just gonna take a moment to hopefully ease all ur fears

    we (the lgbtq) community have been burned before in terms of representation, and i get the hesitation, the constant devil’s advocate we play with ourselves against onslaughts of evidence for bumbleby just in case we get burned again. but recently, miles & kerry in the reddit ama talked about pilot boi and how they were going to make him gay but didn’t because after receiving feedback form various crew members, they realized they would’ve been playing into extremely harmful tropes. now, this tells us:

    1. they’re aware of these harmful tropes, and i think we can also safely assume they’re aware of queerbaiting, as it’s been an issue since bumbleby started toeing that line anyway (so, for literally years)
    2. they listen to feedback on issues they don’t have personal experience with and adjust accordingly
    3. they aren’t stupid, and they certainly aren’t attempting to actively hurt major parts of their fanbase, especially when their representation has real-life implications for an already marginalized, abused, & targeted community

    so my point of view - and i’ve always believed this, as rooster teeth itself is an extremely socially-driven, community-based company anyway - is that if miles & kerry are this cautious with even casual representation, they’re going to be even more aware of what they do with popular ships like bumbleby. i fully believe they would’ve shut it down at some point in the past if it were absolutely not happening, but instead, all they’ve done is deliberately fuel the fire. regardless of what you ship, the bumbleby fandom is mostly comprised of queer women who are recognizing themselves in this ship/these characters, we’re relating to it on a level we understand, and rather than their moments being “toned down” (as i’d expect from rooster teeth if they’d realized they were accidentally queerbaiting us), we’re getting more blatant ones - yang and weiss’s conversation, blake only saying yang’s name, yang’s look. crwby isn’t stupid, they’re not oblivious, and more importantly, they aren’t cruel. they know what they’re doing because they’re rooted in community, everyone around them is giving them constant feedback. i think we need to step back and look at the entire process they go through and trust in that."

    I think this sums up how all Bumbleby shippers feel:

    That last one is one of my absolute favourite BumbleBY pictures. I've been a patron of hers (Dandonfuga) for a long time and I was so happy when she drew them. Brilliant work.
