Cinder basically runs on a “you must be a level 4 friend to unlock my tragic backstory” philosophy except that she tried to cheat the system by never making friends and now the backstory just keeps piling up until it busts something and leaks.
And now we’re all done freaking out over how pretty Winter looks with her hair down I’ve got mention it.
Look at all the injuries she’s got from fighting Cinder, arm cut up and hair let down by those glass blades and burn marks from fire attacks.
…..But look at that black eye, it took me a second to realise where that came from and I think I’ve figured it out.
The big cut across the bridge of her nose (Which is probably broken at this point) and the black eye likely came from the same hit and I’ve seen injuries like that irl.
Guys; I think Cinder used her Semblance to make a knuckle-duster and straight up decked Winter off-screen.
Just thinking about The Long Memory’s so called ability to “store time” and what that might mean for the beginning of volume 8. AND how the next volume is going to form itself since a normal arc for any show can’t account for going straight into heavy battles at the beginning of a season. how would you build to a climax?
now some of it is a refined version of something I have posted before, but I feel like it is coalescing into something more concrete. I believe that the way for the arc to progress as it should is for a partial rewind of this last season to take place. otherwise how do we build toward a penultimate episode, a dramatic ending for the volume as stories go?
The fact that CRWBY seems to have worked on planning 7 and 8 together might be why they didn’t realize the impact of Clover’s death also, if we are going to rewind near the beginning of vol 8 it might have just slipped through that the effect on current watchers is going to be very different than the effect on those who are watching it through later on or for those who are in the loop about what is going on. and that might be why no one realized that RT social media spurring on fair game might be a bad idea. but that’s just a thought.
I would imagine to make it work that if we are doing a rewind with all of our protags that rewinding to election morning would be the best shot at making things work out for the better.
That way they have a chance to find Watts before the election is rigged.
it’s before BB talk to Robyn so Ironwood can’t call them out for disloyalty.
they know that Robyn will be sympathetic so they can tell and get amity stuff together faster. (or maybe evac completely, drop atlas and use the staff on amity?)
they know Cinder and Neo are there and they can be wary.
they have enough notice that they can evacuate Mantle fully.
and Oz is back witch might help them prevent Ironwoods destructive fear-spiral.
and we can prevent the whole series of events that leads to Tyrian murdering Clover.
none of which really combats the fact that Salem is on her way, so we still have a build up to a dramatic encounter with a big bad for the volume ender.
and because of everyone’s knowledge of what has happened, the volume should be very different, avoiding the feeling that we are just doing what we did last season.

cinder fall + outfits
some finale, huh
Mercury: Cinder, you’re wearing sweatpants. It’s Monday.
Emerald: So that’s against the rules and you can’t sit with us.
Cinder: Whatever. Those rules aren’t real.
Emerald: They were real that day I wore a vest!
Cinder: It was because that vest was disgusting!
Mercury: YOU CAN’T SIT WITH US!
Post-redemption Cinder sketches. No prosthetic arm yet. The one the left is here main outfit, but knowing Cinder, she likes to accessorize and do other casual outfits as well.
I wonder if Jaune will eventually convince her to get an arm prosthetic… maybe take up archery again…?
i just love how well the vaults match with their maidens, ya know?
the atlas vault is all tron lines, floating platforms (kinda like penny’s weapons, sorta) and the vault door looks like circuitry.
the haven vault is all nature (fitting for someone living in the middle of a forest), the elevator to it is unlocked by a pocket watch (raven’s emblem) and it’s hidden in plain sight, and the vault door is all flowery (too lazy to get pictures, but raven’s design does have flowers, they’re just hard to see).
and then there’s the beacon vault, so well hidden that no one’s found it yet, just like cinder’s backstory.
Quick sketch while I waited for amity arena to update 😘
Jaune: *Nervous* Sorry if I make a mess, it’s… been a while for me.
Cinder: *Going down on Jaune* Don’t worry, I’ll be sure to take good care of yo-
