How often do you think Ozpin’s past lives have been gay? I mean, just working on the law of averages there had to have been at least a few within the Ozma collective that was interested in dudes.
page sixteen, sorry it’s been so long coming I was busy watching the entirety of steven universe in less than a week
I haven’t known sleep for a long time
anyways here’s a sad wizard boi
Alice : Oscar, what would you like for Christmas ?
Oscar : hm… Another of the books you and me was reading together before ! And you ?
Alice : I don’t know… Read this book with you !
Ozpin : Haha. You’re so cute.
Oscar : And what would you want Ozpin ?
Ozpin : Me ?
Alice : Oh yes, what would you like professor ?
Ozpin : Who knows ? *Stares at Alice and Oscar smiling*
Alice and Oscar : *Stare at Ozpin blushing*
(In my fanfiction, Oz and Oscar share same body, but for this, it’s funnier to imagine them separated)
✨*unapologetically gives ozpin, sun, mercury, whitley and marrow all of my uwu’s* ✨
All of the places on Remnant put together have not produced as many jarring incongruities and mixed messages as Atlas. These are all quotes relating to Atlas that really stood out to me at the time and have stayed with me since.
Penny: I am combat ready! (Yeah, but are you ready for anything else? And who would send out a cute girl robot who was ONLY ready for combat?)
Weiss: The innocent never run, Yang! (Karmic law says that one will come back to bite your ass, Weiss.)
Penny: I don’t have a lot of friends, but if I did, I would want them to talk to me about things. (We haven’t seen this one come back around to Penny yet. Blake, yes. Penny, no.)
Ironwood: But ask yourself this: Do you honestly believe your children can win a war?
Ozpin: I hope they never have to. (Note that Ozpin believes they can. It’s having to fight he considers a failure. Later revelations would make his view even more tragic.)
Ruby: But why not let us know you were okay?
Penny: I… was asked not to talk to you. Or Weiss. Or Blake. Or Yang. Anybody, really.
Ruby: Was your dad that upset?
Penny: No, it wasn’t my father… (Ironwood speaks next. An early sign of Ironwood’s controlling nature.)
Penny: I’m the world’s first synthetic person capable of generating an Aura. (Tell me more.)
Penny: One day, it will be my job to save the world (The whole world? Seriously, tell me more.)
Penny: It’s okay, Ruby. They’re not bad people; I just don’t want to get you in trouble. (And why would talking to you get Ruby in trouble? And why send her to a festival that encourages students to talk to each other if you won’t let her talk?)
Penny: Just promise me you won’t tell anyone else my secret. Okay?
Ruby: I promise.(If she HAD told Pyrrha, the whole debacle might not have happened. Will this come up again?)
Roman: As some of you may have heard, this right here… (Taps the giant mech) …is Atlas's newest defense against all the scary things in the world. And thanks to my “employer”, we’ve managed to snag a few before they, uh, “hit the shelves”. (Damn, Atlas, y'all got a lot worse security problems than Ruby.)
(The image of Penny dancing by herself at the ball surrounded by uniformed guards. Say what?)
Ironwood: Ruby, I feel it’s appropriate to let you know that I think what you did last night is exactly what being a Huntress is all about. You recognized a threat. You took action. And you did the very best you could. (Ah well, that’s nice. Doesn’t entirely fit in with the rest of your character James, but it’s nice.)
Ruby: Wait. You think this girl is connected to Torchwick and the White Fang?
Ozpin: It’s possible. But we still lack the required evidence to link the two together.
Ruby: Actually, I… I think I remember her saying something about a hideout, or something, in the southeast. Just outside the Kingdom.
Glynda: I thought you said the intruder never—
Ozpin: Thank you for your cooperation, Ruby. Why don’t you go and spend some time with your team? You have a big day ahead of you.
Ruby: Any time.
Ozpin: And Miss Rose, please try and be … discreet about this matter.
Ruby: Yes sir. (This tells Ironwood several things. It tells him that Ruby will lie for Ozpin, that Ozpin will cover up Ruby’s lie to protect her, and most importantly that Ruby and Ozpin TRUST EACH OTHER.)
Glynda: Why must your answer to everything involve a triumphant display of military bravado!? You treat every situation like it’s a contest of measuring di—!
Glynda: Well, he does. (Tell me more, Glynda.)
Ozpin: You’re a general, James. So tell me, when you prepare to go to war, which do you send in first? The flag bearers, or the scouts? (Why is a civilian Headmaster schooling a general with a lesson taught to greenhorn Lieutenants? And why does he have to?)
Ozpin: We fought for countless reasons, one of which being the destruction of all forms of art and self-expression. (SOME kingdom has control issues.)
Glynda: You’re a good person, James. You’ve always done what you think is best for the people, even against strong protest. It’s admirable. But it’s high time you stopped talking about trust and started showing it. (So Ironwood’s trust issues are not new. Tell me more.)
Councilman 1: You’ve left us no choice! The Vytal Festival tournament cannot be broadcast, let alone held, if we are unable to ensure the safety of the citizens.
Councilman 1: Ahem… Therefore, we have reached out to the Atlas Council and together have decided that the best action is to appoint General Ironwood as head of security for the event.
Ironwood: Thank you, Councilman. Our Kingdom is happy to lend as many troops as it takes to ensure that the event runs smoothly and safely as possible.
Councilman 1: And we thank you, General.
Ozpin: Will that be all?
Councilman 1: For now. But after this festival comes to a close, we are going to have a serious discussion about your position at Beacon Academy. General Ironwood’s reports over the last few weeks have left us somewhat… concerned. I am sure you understand.
Ironwood: This is the right move, Ozpin. I promise, I will keep our people safe, you have to trust me.(Damn dude, what did Glynda just say about trusting people? And why do you expect Ozpin to trust you when you clearly have tattled behind his back?)
Ironwood: You brought this on yourself. (Yeah, he did. By trusting you.)
I have already written a detailed post on the vast discrepancies between how Winter Schnee behaves and what she is trying to convey in her first scenes, titled “Snowbirds of a Feather”. Suffice to say Ironwood isn’t the only Atlesian sending mixed messages.
Ironwood: If you were one of my men, I would have you shot!
Qrow: If I was one of your men, I’d shoot myself.(So y'all have an acrimonious history as well. Okay.)
Goodwitch: While I wouldn't condone his behavior, retaliating like you did certainly didn’t help the situation. (“Call yourself a grown-up? I’ve seen better behavior from first-year students! Why do I even have to say anything to you? Don’t answer that.”)
Qrow: You sent me to get intel on our enemy, and I’m telling you, our enemy is here.
Ironwood: We know.
Qrow: Oh! Oh, you know! Well, thank goodness I’m out there risking my life to keep you all informed!
Qrow: Communication’s a two-way street, pal. You see this? That’s the SEND button.
Winter: They had reason to assume you’d been compromised. (So, Ironwood, explain to me WHY, if you seriously think Qrow has been compromised, you haven’t brought it up with HIS BOSS before now? Isn’t that information kind of important?)
Qrow: Despite what the world thinks, we’re not just teachers, or generals, or headmasters. The people in this room, the leaders of the other two academies, we’re the ones that keep the world safe from the evils no one even knows about! It’s why we meet behind closed doors, why we work in the shadows. So you tell me, James, when you brought your army to Vale, did you think you were being discreet, or did you just not give a damn!?
Ironwood: Discreet wasn’t working. (Explain.)
I’m here because this is what was necessary. (Explain.)
Qrow: You’re here because Ozpin wanted you here! (Is it just me, or does anyone else think this sounds like it was an unpopular decision?)
Ciel: Ruby Rose. 15. Hails from Patch. Leader of Team RWBY. Status: Questionable. (Daaaammmn son. We need to talk. You ordered a full background check on a teenage girl just because she talked to your android? And then you gave it to your android’s handler? And on top of all that, a gifted honor student from a multigenerational Huntsmen family who leads Beacon’s first-year star team, who Ozpin clearly trusts, only rates as “Questionable”? Who doesn’t rate as “Questionable”? Oh that’s right. Qrow is also “Questionable”, and so is Ozpin. Tell me, do you rate yourself as “Questionable”?)
Ciel: Penny? I believe it is best if we move on to our next location.
Penny: Could we have just a minute to talk? (No seriously, is Penny now not allowed any free time?)
Ciel: It’s been precisely one minute, ma'am.(Apparently not.)
Penny: Ruby, there’s something I’ve been wanting to talk to you about. I want to stay at Beacon.
Ruby: Penny, they’ll never let you do that.
Penny: I know, but I have a plan.(Tell me more.)
Yang: You’re from Atlas. What could we expect?
Weiss: Well, seeing as their Kingdom, academy and armed forces are all merged as one, I think we can expect strict, militant fighters with advanced technology and carefully rehearsed strategies. … Or whatever they are.(So even other Atlesians think Atlesians send mixed messages.)
Ironwood: For the past few years, Atlas has been studying Aura from a more scientific standpoint; how it works, what’s it made of, how it can be used. We’ve made… significant strides. And we believe we’ve found a way to capture it.
Qrow: Capture it and cram it into something else. (Dude, exactly WHERE did Penny’s Aura come from?)
Ironwood: What I believe and hope this to be is nothing more than the result of stress and adrenaline. When you’re out on the battlefield, your judgment can become clouded in an instant. Sometimes you see things that simply aren’t there. Even after the fight is past… (That answers that question. You don’t trust yourself either. What happened to you?)
Ironwood: Ozpin, the girl… I-I can explain! (You’ve got a full scale Grimm invasion going on and you’re more terrified of OZPIN? What did you do to create Penny, James? How ELSE have you betrayed Oz?)
Ironwood: Qrow! This isn’t my doing! (Why did you automatically assume Qrow is attacking you instead of looking behind you? Guilt?)
This post is long enough already, so I’ll finish later. While I may be overreacting to some of these statements, that doesn’t explain all of them. It’s looked from the beginning like there was something fishy going on in Atlas, especially having to do with Ironwood.
gloria a te
I went through the same panic and confusion
I do think Agent Washington and Ozpin would get along, but I also find the idea of immediately post season 16!Wash having to deal with an immediately post volume 6!Oz and hating every moment of it to be hilarious
We’re going to see the Wizard!
Ozpin: What if I told you that there were four maidens existing in this world? Powerful warriors who could wield tremendous power without dust?
Pyrrha: You mean like… a semblance?
Ozpin: No, like
Jinn: The year is 9. Some motherfucker be touching cow tits, and oh boy, he’s about to invent cereal
Ozpin: … I beg your pardon
I think you’re pretty great
If Oscar’s semblance was to “summon” his past selves as aura projections in battle, not only would it be badass, but it would also be a goldmine for Jojo references, send tweet
Qrow: Papa didn’t raise no quitter
Qrow: well, actually, Papa didn’t really raise me at all
Qrow, slamming down a letter of resignation in front of Ozpin: which is why I’m quitting
These are the current ships that have gained enough interest to be a part of the Ship Wrecked Fanzine!
