      I'm pretty excited, I didn't think I'd be able to make it to any of the RWBY screenings but here I am at the Mount Pleasant, MI one! Not a ton of people here yet, but I did get here early. Should be fun! :D


      EDIT: lol and right after I post this, a ton of people showed up! Good timing.


      EDIT2: Sooo much fun. Had a great time meeting @Nuthanial @szoomer4 @sazoomer4 and @IronSpikeRai1

    • RWBY Grimm Eclipse Music

      in Forums > RWBY Grimm Eclipse Music | Follow this topic

      The music in RWBY: Grimm Eclipse is pretty catchy (and most of it isn't from the show, it's new stuff), but I couldn't find it online anywhere. So I decided to upload it to Youtube myself, in case anybody other than me would like it too: youtube.com/watch?v=nza1DYlE1gQ


      I extracted the music from the game's asset files (which isn't too hard to do for Unity games like Grimm Eclipse) and put it all together with some nice screenshots from the show.


      Enjoy! If anyone's interested, let me know and I'll explain how you can extract the music files yourself, if you happen to have the game.

    • I made some RWBY gifs...

      /u/EliteLaser posted some hysterical gifs in the RWBY subreddit with various characters waggling their eyebrows. I got inspired and did the same thing...


      ...with Grimm.

    • It's September!

      Do you know what that means?!

      No, not that school's starting, although for those of you in school, that's probably pretty important.

      No, not that Halloween's coming up, even if that's pretty neat too (not for the costumes and candy, tbh, I mostly just find it funny how the internet suddenly explodes into spoopy skeletons).

      No, what it really means to me is, there's only two months left until NaNoWriMo, which means it's plannin' time!

      "But Aly," you say, "you've got two whole months." Yeah, well, that's about how long it takes me to come up with an idea! If nothing else, I have a fallback plan of doing a sequel to last year's project, but I don't have any ideas of what the plot would be for that either, just a general idea of the characters. Ah well, inspiration will strike me sooner or later.

    • Why am I a fan?

      2 years ago

      alynnidalar Spider-Wash

      I've seen several other people doing this, so I'll throw my two cents in.

      I'm a fan because Red vs. Blue is the only show--TV show, web series, movie series, whatever--that I not only have seen all of, but have been able to keep up with over multiple seasons, and have actually rewatched multiple times. The only show that I have ever seen that has managed to hold my attention for more than a few months.

      I love Doctor Who, but I go on these binge-and-starve things with it. I'll practically forget about it for months, then watch ten episodes at once. I loved Avatar, but since it ended, I've rewatched it in full maybe just once or twice, and I never watched past season 1 of Korra. I enjoy Archer and the Blacklist, but they're kind of like Doctor Who, I'll skip them for weeks and then watch a bunch of episodes in one evening. I used to watch Castle, House, Orphan Black, Battlestar Galactica... but either I just couldn't get through all of them, or I just stopped watching between seasons.

      There is one show, and one show alone, that I not only have watched all of multiple times, but has kept my attention for several seasons (this'll be my seventh season as a fan!), and that show is RvB.

      Yeah, other stuff RT does is cool too, I enjoy RWBY, I watch the occasional Let's Play and podcast, and I backed Lazer Team, but if they still did nothing at all but make RvB, I'd still be a fan. So happy birthday, Rooster Teeth. Thanks for seven years of keeping me glued to my monitor with the crazy adventures of Crayola-colored idiots. May there be many, many more years ahead of us.

      And Blue Team for life.

      I really need to get in the habit of posting journals more often... to give me something to do, if nothing else!

      Anyway, I started watching this brilliant Youtube series recently, Fallout 3: Kill Everything. You know how there's Let's Plays where people do pacifist runs, trying to get through an entire game without killing anybody? Well, this is the complete opposite. Instead, he made a valiant effort at killing literally every single living thing in the game..

      And it is hilarious.

      The game just desperately keeps trying to get on with the story, which (for example) requires him to be friends with the Brotherhood of Steel... even though he killed as many of them as he could. And you'd be surprised at what characters are able to be killed... and which ones are immortal, for no good reason.

      Now I wanna do a kill everything run. Maybe Skyrim?

    • RvB Crackships

      3 years ago

      alynnidalar Spider-Wash

      I forgot I wrote a little Javascript RvB crackship generator once, a couple of years ago. So I updated it with a bunch of new characters. Let's see what we get here...

      Doc / Sigma

      Caboose / Tex

      a Red Zealot / Robot Number 2

      Epsilon's version of Donut / Caboose's version of Tucker

      Eta / the Sleeveless Insurrectionist guy

      Yellow Church / Omega's Red Zealot stooge

      The Chairman / The Engineer

      It was at this point that I thought I'd give up, because nothing could ever top that last one, but let's get real. I didn't give up.

      Counselor / Andy... FILSS / Simmons, Grif / North (actually this one is probably a real ship out there), and possibly my favorite so far: Allison / a member of Lopez's robot army.

      Didn't actually get any of the new characters, but who really needs them anyway?

      EDIT: KIMBALL/CRUNCHBITE

      EDIT2: 479er/Locus and Simmons/Maine

    On a side note, if you send me a friend request and I don't accept it, it's probably not because I hate you forever, it's just that I don't know you very well. I only accept friend requests from, well, friends--people who I've known for awhile

        Writeins...I've never actually heard of that.
        I am in a cute little group on my campus where we come up with topics and write together and then share. There's two very zealous girls that don't leave much room for others sharing though.

        Mostly sci-fi or fantasy stuff. And yeah, it is a pretty big commitment. Personally, it helps to have a general idea of where I'm going, and I try not to fall behind ever. Also, in my area there's a really great group of IRL people, and going to the writeins with them helps too.

        Damn. I'm super impressed. I'm a writer as well, but I don't know how to persevere for NaNoWriMo.
        What do you like to write?

        Yep, I've participated every year for the past several years. It's a lot of work, but I enjoy it.

        If you're on the NaNo site, look me up! I'm swenson over there.

      I would like to thank you for helping to keep /r/roosterteeth a more sane and informed place.

        :D Thanks. Dunno how much I really do, but I do try to be sensible/helpful. You seem like one of the cool people over there too.

      When helping someone with image tags, you can show the actual tags without having the site parse them by breaking up the tag with another tag thusly

      Please don't make me explain how to explain how to break up the tags. too deep 5 me.

      Three years on the site and no one has left you a personal comment? Allow me to remedy that. funny-gifs-thats-ironic.gif

        Yeah, even when people argue over stupid stuff, I still really like it around here. It's one of the very few communities I'm involved with at all too.

      • mbowerman

        5 years ago

        Gotcha. It's a great online community, as far as I've seen. It's really the only one that I seriously participate in, and even then I could probably do some more. Most of what I do is just post in specific threads (like the Blue Freelancer one, as I'm sure you've seen). But eventually it'll be nice to actually make more friends through this, maybe even meet up with some people at expos and what not.

        Thanks. :) I really only became active around here a few months ago, so that's why.
