I've actually been mulling it over for some time now. And I should be more specific, I plan to no longer actively contribute to any topic on any RWBY forum. I do plan on, when the next season comes out (as I still plan to adhere to my own rules, 2 strikes and the Spiderman Principle being in play so far), to critically analyze and offer my thoughts then, but no more than that. And I fully expect season 6 to be my last one. Based on everything we have seen so far, I expect more of the same sub-par writing, with emphasis on "doing the cool thing" and wowing the fans visually over actually telling a solid story. We have enough to go on to conclude that RWBY was heavily flawed from the start, and that the writers were relying on their own brand, Monty's name and the general rule of cool to carry this show, even when they knew what they were going to do from season 3 onward, even in the face of the rules of their key set-pieces that are Semblances and Aura. In the end, I think that whatever they do, it will be to appeal to the majority, regardless of whether or not any such decision enhances the narrative. After all, them saying that they would continue to make RWBY as long as it was popular should have been our red flag in that regard. Allowing the fans any personal investment in the creation process, no matter how small, should have been a red flag there, too.
I will be leaving my profile up, so that individual people can PM me, and I will respond to those, but I'm pretty much done with the public forums. Quite frankly, it stresses me out too much, and I am in a place right now that I need to reduce the amount of stress in my life. So this goes. I also plan on producing more pieces on RWBY, similar to the ones I already have up on my profile, and will add them as they are done.
I do hope that I end up being proven wrong. But I don't think that I will be. My DeviantArt profile is AraelIsrafel, if you choose to contact me there.
