    I know, but he explained it to a sharp point. Everything he said was true and it's all pointing that way

    I agree Pyrrha needs to stay dead her death has a good weight to the characters and the story.

    She needs to stay dead. Her story added good weight on the characters and story. 


    No. JUST NO.

    She does need to stay dead, if nothing else her death made the Fall of Beacon much more real, it brought consequence to the conflict.

    I'm not going to say another god damn word for fear of starting a heated argument. Let's agree to disagree and keep it civil because both of us love this show and respect one another as fellow fans.

    Alrighty, I need to get this off my chest after the BS shipping argument I got into today. Ah the joys of being a bumblebee supporter. .

    Sun is a poorly written character who’s backstory and thoughts are mostly made off fan assumptions. He is part of a long line of male/hetero love interests who latch on to the female protagonist at first sight and devote themselves to getting her no matter what. And if they can’t do

    that they just cling and insert themselves into her life. If you really aren’t ok with icky
    ships...well, I got news for ya. Sun is what happens when writers don’t
    know how to write realistic relationships.


    Blake and Yang are by no means a perfectly written potential couple.
    There is no confirmation that either are bi, or that they have feelings
    for each other. But there’s a lot of potential as anyone who watches the
    show knows.
    .

    But the thing is that they’re so much better than the alternative. Yang
    and Sun are not equal, and they’re relationships with Blake are night
    and day (pun intended). I think Sun’s “sunny” personality, Michael
    Jones’s good voice acting and the fact that we are so used to this kind
    of character in media has blinded a LOT of people to the reality. Hey
    vapid and one-dimensional.

    And to be fair, Blake’s characterization has been all over the fucking
    place because they have no idea what they want her to be. But at least
    she has motivations that go beyond a creepy devotion to someone she’s
    attracted too.

    In summary, Blake looks cute with both Yang and Sun. But one would be a
    relationship that’s realistic and between to characters who have lives,
    motivations and interests outside of each other. The other, isn’t that. I
    get wanting to be the peacemaker, to make everyone feel valid. But bad
    writing is bad writing. And no matter how goofy, tan, blond, ripped and
    earnest Sun is, he’s still a flat character and a creep. And that’s not
    his fault, it’s the writers. But it is the reality of the story. And we
    have to judge it by how it is, not how we imagine it could be.

    I'm not sure I would say Sun is poorly written, per se. He does have a lack of characterisation and purpose outside of being a sidekick and method of developing/evolving Blake's character, but that may be by design rather than laziness or oversight, since I believe his purpose is in fact just as a sidekick and character developer for Blake, and that's why he's not getting more work put into him. Now, if they were to actually pair them romantically in canon, then I would have to say that, yes, they didn't put nearly enough into his character to put him on the same level as the main cast and that would be a serious disservice to his character (and Blake's). But I don't believe they will go that route and he will be cemented as a secondary or even tertiary character.


    And regarding Blake's characterisation being all over the place, I believe that isn't her character actually being all over the place but rather her growing and changing as a character. Now, we'll need proof in the next couple volumes that it is in fact permanent character development, but I'm confident that's what it is.


    I could be wrong about all of this, it's pure conjecture, but I feel like this is where the writers are going and I think it's all by design, not happenstance or lazy writing or anything like that.

    Arkos with suicidal Pyrrha as leader? Let's storm Salem's HQ! She would still be alive if she had known the limits of her tactical competence.

    Actual ship progress as of volume 5 is not very impressive.

    In the following ranking progress score 10 is the classic movie confirmation by consensual (unopposed) romantic kiss.


    Arkos: 10/10

    Type: Lady's pick

    confirmed with romantic kiss

    Status: Terminated, due to death of involved character


    Blacksun: 6/10

    Type: Standard

    has her mothers seal of approval

    he visited her family

    Status:progressing


    Renora: 1/10

    Type: Sandbox

    Status: stalled, presumably due to fear of loosing nonromantic ship in conversion attempt or incompatible sexual preference in one/both of the characters


    Snowbird: 1/10

    Type: dual sided subconscious denial

    Status: stalled, due to nature of ship, both involved characters have subconscious "independence protection" engaged which sabotages any friendly interaction, has to move to single sided subconscious denial first and will not make any progress there either.


    Disclaimer: I guessed the scriptwriters intentions. and I may be just dead wrong.


    The scripwriters have my sympathies, because any progress of a ship involving main characters will probably disappoint more shippers whose ships are sunk by loss of availabilty than are pleased by confirmation of their ships.

    In reply to GammaEmerald

    I kinda want to see what possibilities exist for Emerald now that Cinder is very likely dead, or at least the human part of her is

    Since when is falling into a dark shaft a confirmed villain death - no matter how frosted. You should absolutely never turn your back on a villain 

    A separated head located at least 1m distant from the body identified by at least three people with notary confirmation showing first signs of decay and none of movement for at least an hour, then you can count out a villain.


    Taking a backshot from a meatshield she falsely classified as dead/neutralized, would also be quite pathetic.

    Salem's team would also look quite thin. She also lost her mole.

    He makes a lot of good points

    There is indeed one thing, if working as a team, his Aura Amplification would allow her to churn out a ton of runes before their combined Aura runs out. And she has a lot of ranged spells. So if he has about double the Aura than an average huntsmen (Pyrrha said, he has a lot), they can you use up half his Aura to "soften up the enemy" like in artillery barrage and then go in fully loaded.


    With Ruby he would have to cling to her to allow continous superspeed and limit her dexterity when using a weapon (not so good)

    Yang's ranged arsenal is not so versatile and also not aura driven. And the red eye rage was(?) depletion driven so, refilling would not contribute. Even if she can now activate it any time, it works in close combat and it seems that he has to touch, so this would also be a hindrance.

    Blake is locked shipwise and I would not know what to do with a ton of Blake clones (Chinese terracotta army as a decoy?).


    So yes he is definitely best paired with Weiss teamwise.

    I do not know if the scriptwriters are this tactic-driven. But we will see, when/if they bomb an opponent into submission with him as her ammo cart. I would like to see this. 


    Neptune, coming from Haven would have gotten a mission from Lionheart upon his return. Which would have him rubberarmed by Cinder Grimborg.


    But professional and romantic spheres are something different.


    By the way, thank you for this insight, because I am tactic and rule driven, this was very tasty food for thought.

    Shipwise, I do not believe that much will happen, because ship's rate of progress is glacial in any show. Do not hope for your preferred ships to be resolved, that may backfire badly, when the scriptwriters get another "Game of Thrones" moment.

    Actual ship progress as of volume 5 is not very impressive (update).

    In the following ranking progress score 10 is the classic movie confirmation by consensual (unopposed) romantic kiss and or confession of love by both involved characters.


    Arkos: 10/10

    Type: Lady's pick

    confirmed with romantic kiss

    Status: Terminated, due to death of involved character


    Blacksun: 8/10

    Type: Standard

    has her mothers seal of approval

    he visited her family

    positive physical reactions on her side (blushing)

    Status:progressing


    Renora: 1/10

    Type: Sandbox

    Status: stalled, presumably due to fear of loosing nonromantic ship in conversion attempt or incompatible sexual preference in one/both of the characters


    Snowbird: NA/10 (score dependent on real reason for her going two gears up in 3 3 09:16)

    Type: dual sided subconscious denial

    Status: stalled, due to nature of ship, both involved characters have subconscious "independence protection" engaged which sabotages any friendly interaction, has to move to single sided subconscious denial first and will not make any progress there either.


    Iceberg: 1/10

    Type: Standard

    Status: stale, Neptune being from Haven Academy may have gotten the full Lionheart mission pack, complete with halluzinations, mercury contamination and a free rubber arm hug.

    It depends on if/when Jaune gets over Pyrrha and starts dating again, then he might find Weiss still on top of his list.

    And Ren and Nora can move any time - or not.


    Sorry, but this does not look very helpful.
