It used to feel like a fairytale Now it seems we were just pretending We’d fix our world then on our way to a happy ending Then it turns out life is far less like a bedtime story Than a tragedy with no big reveal of the hero’s glory And it seems we weren’t prepared For a game that wasn’t fair Do we just go home? Can we follow through? When all hope is gone There is one thing we can do! Let’s just live! Day by day, and not be conquered by our sorrows The past can’t hold us down, we must break free! Inside we’re torn apart But time will mend our hearts Move onward, not there yet So let’s just live! Nora: Another day, another adventure! Ruby: What’s on the agenda today? Jaune: Walking! Nora: With a side of…? Ren: Walking. Ruby: Haven is a lot farther away than I thought. Ren: Ruby… How long did you think this journey was going to take? Ruby: I don’t know! I grew up in a small area; I’ve never been this far away from home. Jaune: Right but… how long? Ruby: Maybe like, uh… Two weeks? Jaune: What?! Ruby: Okay fine, three or something! Look, whatever. Hey, what’s that? Jaune: That’s strange… I didn’t think we’d be hitting another village for a few days, Nora: Are those buildings… damaged? Jaune: We should search for survivors! Ruby: Anything? Nora: Nothing over here! Jaune: No one over here either! Ren: It almost seems like the town was abandoned. Nora: Hey, I think I found something! Nora: Oniyuri? Never heard of it.. Jaune: Me neither. Ren: I have. You might think of it as Anima’s Mountain Glenn, had it never been completed. Years ago, the richest members of Mistral were unhappy with how the kingdom was being run. Frustrated with the council, they pooled their resources together to build their own city.. With their own laws. They hoped that one day, it could maybe even become its own kingdom. Many thought it would be the future. I know my parents did. Ruby: What happened? Ren: What always happens. Jaune: The Grimm… Ren: Not just any one. Ruby: One? Jaune: Come on, let’s just get through here. This place gives me the creeps. Weiss: I’m not your pet Not another thing you own I was not born guilty of your crimes Your riches and your influence can’t hold me anymore I won’t be possessed Burdened by a royal test I will not surrender, this life is mine! Jacques: That’s precisely my point. We offer Faunus the exact same wages given to the rest of our mining staff. Their argument’s completely invalid right out the gate. Bussinessman: Well, I think the bigger issue here is our society as a whole. Jacques: What, you mean Atlas? Businessman: Atlas, Mantle… You can’t deny the economic disparity between the two. Businesswoman: I mean, what exactly are you suggesting? Jacques: Where are you going? Weiss: I’m… Just a little thirsty. Jacques: Sweetheart, we have people for that. Weiss: What? No, I can get it. I’ll be right back, I promise. Businesswoman: Look, no one asked them to move here. Businessman: But companies like the SDC promised jobs! Jacques: I’m sorry, I tuned out for a second but… …sounds like I’m the good guy again? Henry: It’s beautiful. You two match. Weiss: Yes, it’s a lovely painting. Henry: So… That was my attempt at breaking the ice… How am I doing so far? Weiss: You are leaving a lot to be desired. Henry: Well, I’ve always appreciated honesty. Henry. Marigold. Weiss: Weiss Schnee. Henry: I know. I saw your performance… Obviously. You were wonderful! And I promise I’m not just saying that cause you’re pretty. Honesty, remember? So.. You thinking about buying it? Weiss: No… I don’t think so. Henry: Yeah… Kind of pricey for a painting. Weiss: It’s to raise money. Henry: Oh really? For what? Weiss: For what!? Henry: I’ll admit… I only come to these things for the food and drinks. And the extraordinary company, of course. So what… Is it another Mantle fundraiser or something? Weiss: Get out. Henry: What? Weiss: Get out, or I will have security escort you out. Henry: But I haven’t done anyth- Weiss: Leave! Henry: Whatever. Trophy Wife: But really, does it come as any surprise what happened to Vale? It was a long time coming if you ask me. Husband: Honey.. Trophy Wife: What? You said the same thing last night If they’re so arrogant to think they can get by without proper kingdom defense, then I say good riddance. Weiss: Shut up! Jacques: Weiss. Weiss: You don’t have a clue! None of you do! Trophy Wife: Excuse me?! Weiss: You’re all just standing around talking about nothing! Worrying about your hair, your money… Your stupid problems that don’t mean anything! Jacques: Weiss, that’s enough! Weiss: Let go of me! Jacques: You’re embarrassing the family! Weiss: I said let go! Trophy Wife: Please, I’m sorry, I’m sorry! Just leave me alone! Arrest her! What are you waiting for? She’s insane, she should be locked up! Ironwood: She’s the only one making sense around here. Thanks for the party, Jacques. Jaune: We’re not looking for a fight! Ren: Who are you? Tyrian: Who I am matters not to you. Or you… Or…. Well… You do interest me. No, I only matter… to you. Ruby: Me? Tyrian: You – you haven’t the slightest clue, do you? Oh, how exciting this must be! Ruby: What do you want? Tyrian: Oh, the rose has thorns! My little flower, I’m here to whisk you away with me! Nora: Well, what if she doesn’t want to go with you? Tyrian: Well… I’ll take her. Jaune: We’re not going to let you do that. Tyrian: Good. Ren: Jaune! Tyrian: Well! If that isn’t ironic. Tyrian: Surprise! Ren: He’s… a Faunus! Ruby: What is this about? The White Fang? Roman Torchwick? Tyrian: Plastic soldiers and pawns! My heart and body belong only to our goddess! Ruby: Cinder… Tyrian: Only in her wildest dreams! Qrow: Hey.
