in fact, may I -- if only once in this life -- find the same level of passion and emotional investment in anything as the straight league of legends community does in mandela effecting their way into thinking leona and diana are sisters :)

What would your kids be like
pour one out for all the pairings who get the 'we few, we happy few, we band of "no no shut up they're like brothers"' treatment ('but I thought they were sisters' is also a common and obnoxiously deliberately obtuse one but it doesn't work as well with the shakespeare reference lol)

Hi, I have autism and I take shit too literally.
Ruby and Summer Rose
Ok so I've decided to talk about this even though I'm gonna be eat alive.
The last time people took it really bad so I'm giving a warning:
• This is my opinion and interpretation of Ruby and her relationship and views with her mom, Summer. I could be wrong or not, who knows? Only CRWBY.
I've talked about this before, made a post about how Ruby resents Summer and even tried to explain a little, but today I will go a bit deeper.
From V1 to V5 Ruby has an idolized version of her mom in her mind that Qrow, Raven and Yang contradict a bit during this time.
We see her talking how huntress are so cool and she wants to become one by following her family path to go to Beacon in V1, even if she gives Blake a speech how they are supposed to help people of not losing hope, you can still see she idolizes this career.
One of the reasons for that is her mom and Qrow, probably even Yang.
She grows up hearing this cool stories of his uncle taking down Grimms and helping people, her knowing her mom used to be a huntress then she concluded her mom did the same (which is right). She probably heard a bunch of stories of her mom as well from Qrow and Yang, probably Taiyang too at one point.
As RWBY plot keeps going we learn some dark stuff in the run and so do Ruby.
Some of them was about silver eyed people and their fate, Salem, Summer and Salem fight, Raven reason to leave, etc.
Because of her experiences from the end of V3 till V5 her views of her career shift to a more mature one and slowly she starts learning more about her mom thanks to spending more time with her uncle and meeting Raven.
But it isn't since V7 that Ruby seems to start wondering what actually happened to her mom and if Ozpin vs Salem had any thing to do with it, even asking Qrow if he knew something.
She finally gets an answer by Salem herself, where she dictates she killed Summer and even make fun of Ruby. This makes Ruby to have a awful breakdown in that scene alone.
These are the moments when we see Ruby crack but it isn't till V8 that we can see a Ruby that starts resenting Summer.
With all the information that she gathered from past experiences, Salem and finally The Hound, Ruby probably came to the same conclusion as us, the audience.
Summer left to fight Salem alone, probably by Ozpin influence, thinking that with her silver eyes she would make a huge damage or even kill Salem. Something happened in that fight that made Summer lost, while it says she's dead, her body was never found (stated by Yang herself, that Summer just disappeared) so there's a chance that Salem used Summer to make something similar to The Hound.
Now, you are probably saying "this doesn't mean Ruby resents Summer", and you are right. I haven't give any evidence to demonstrate such thing.
But it's because the evidence was already giving to us in V1 by the soundtrack of RWBY.
Red like Roses part II didn't made sense for a lot of people because in early volumes we could see Ruby idolizing her mom, so a lot of people took it as Yang being the one singing with Summer or even Raven.
But after V8 it makes sense it's Ruby the one singing with Summer.
V8 presents us a hopeless Ruby and finally a vulnerable one in the final episodes. After she learned about The Hound Ruby and Yang have an interesting talk.
Ruby leaves the room where Oscar, Emerald and RWBY where by running and Yang runs after her, the next scene she's sitting in the stairs and her body language seems to indicate she hopeless and trying to comfort herself.
Yang tries to light the mood and help Ruby but then Ruby herself, for the first time in the show, brings up Summer in front of Yang. The sisters have never talked about Summer together in a scene.
This makes Yang almost break down but what's come next it's interesting, Ruby starts talking about Summer and The Hound and Yang completely cut her off. Then she tells Ruby how Summer probably though things were going in a different way when she decided to fight Salem but that she's still her (Yang's) hero.
In the conversation there's nothing about Summer being a hero or similar indications, in fact Ruby just brings up the possibility that Summer could have become something similar to The Hound.
But it's the tone. I'm going to praise Lindsay right now cuz they made an amazing job with Ruby voice in this volume, specially this scene.
Since the moment Ruby learns about Salem, Ozpin and Team STRQ, this though cames to her mind, how much Summer knew when she left to fight Salem?
For Ruby, in this exact moment, Summer left her, probably knowing that fighting Salem was a death sentence. A reminder that Ruby was too young to remember certain stuffs but Yang wasn't.
Yang knows Summer left to fight Salem and probably came to the conclusion that she did it with good intentions and trying to make the world a better place because she knows Summer, she remember her.
While Ruby doesn't, she just know what her family has been telling her.
Red like Roses part II just strongly suggest this is what's happening right now.
Ruby is still a 17y old that just learning all this stuffs about her dead mom. All its indicating her that Summer left without caring she was going to die. Making Ruby start having abandonment issues.
I know a lot of people think Summer leaving was what started Yang issues as well but I don't think so. She talks highly of Summer and she understands.
Yang was old enough to understand her parents and uncle's jobs while Ruby didn't. Since the beginning Yang knew what being an huntress was like while Ruby had an idolized image of this.
Her issues started the moment Summer never came back, after this she had to see her family grumble, learn about Raven and raising her little sister.
Ruby and Yang have completely different views on their family, life and death and we are finally starting to see their arc starting, I hope V9 is going to be focus on team RWBY because these 2 have a lot to give us.
