Ambiguity's Shadow: Chapter 1Truth. We all seek it, but the fact of the matter remains; we can never find it but instead make it. If I watch a man die before me, even if I could save him but chose not to; I could decide one of two obvious truths. My first truth is that, I did not kill him, for I did not swing the sword. The second, I did kill him, for my inaction to stop the sword. With that in mind, I can honestly say "I did", or "I did not". It really only depends on my mood. Truth, like so many others; is an ambiguous thing. A human female in her late twenties, clad in full plate armor with the symbol of a flaming sword with an eye for a guard on the breast; marches through the city streets in the night. She's a tall woman, wielding a longsword on her belt and a buckler on her left arm. Ever prepared to face villainy, Allana Peagus, Knight-Inquisitor of the King governing the lands, knocks on the red wooden door in front of her. With a stout sword and a sturdy heart, she co
RWBY: Team ROGE: Chapter 4Chapter 4: First Impressions In the academy that is Beacon, the newly formed first year Team ROGE; lied silently in their sleep. This nice little respite was quickly destroyed by a fast and sharp pain to the nose. Rouge awoken, rubbing his bruised face, he saw Olivia tossing another book at Eli. The young man, clad in blue, fell off of his bed when the flat projectile came into contact with his face. Just as Olivia grabbed the book from the floor, she noticed that one was missing. “Where's Gray?” she asked, but neither of them knew. The three of them began to call out Gray's name, until they finally heard a knock at the closet door. Olivia opened the door and saw the robed teenager hanging upside-down from his sword-made-webs. Eli, baffled at this kind of behavior, had to ask, “What are you doing?” Gray yawned, “I saw a small Arachna on the floor last night.” He explai
RWBY: Team ROGE: Chapter 3Chapter 3: Team ROGE From a distance, a loud scream could be heard echoing through the forest. All four of them turned with their weapons ready, anticipating an enemy attack. Olivia was in front, with Rouge and Gray behind her, Eli remained in back. When no enemy was in sight, they turned back and began to heard towards the cliff. “Some girl's in trouble,” Eli commented. Walking next to Eli was Gray, “That was a man's voice.” Eli had to stop in his tracks to think about what Gray just said. After shaking his head, Eli jogged a little to catch up with his group. Rouge kept point, Olivia was directly behind him, followed by Gray. As they were walking, Olivia began to sniff and growl at the trees. “Something wrong?” Rouge asked, “Is there an enemy nearby?” She growled at the trees, “No, that's what worries me. There'
RWBY: Team ROGE: Chapter 2Chapter 2: Black Knights Olivia followed Rouge through the forest. A scent made it's way toward her nose and it caused concern. She continued to sniff around, forcing Rouge to stop and turn to her. Out of reflex, Olivia covered her nose and squeaked from her surprise. “Why are you stopping?” Rouge asked. Removing her hands from her face, Olivia explained, “I smell... something burning.” “You know what I smell?” he asked a rhetorical question, “The burning desire to... kill all the Beowolves that just surrounded us.” Rouge equip his scythe and stood back to back with Olivia. Showing her ax to be ready, Olivia looked at all of the Grimm. They seemed scared, and out of place; as if something happened. Before could thing, Rouge ran toward one of the enemy, and brought his weapon down upon it. In a quick reaction, he spun around and cle
RWBY: Team ROGE: Chapter 1Chapter 1: Red, Olivine, Gray, Eluin The students of Beacon have gathered around the cliff side overlooking Emerald Forest. There, Headmaster Ozpin and Glynda Goodwitch stand, seeing off their first years. All together, there were sixteen people. This was just the first bunch, others were brought to another end for their initiation. Everyone stood on these platforms, listening to the Headmaster give his lecture. “For years,” Ozpin starts with a nudge of his mug, “you have trained to become warriors.” He looks at his students, all stand valiant and ready, “Today, your abilities will be evaluated in the Emerald Forest,” the Headmaster looks over to the cliff; indicating where everyone will be. Holding a scroll made of metal with a screen displaying everyone's status, Glynda starts her part of the lecture. “Now, I'm sure many of you have heard rumors about the assignment of teams,
Ambiguity's Shadow: Prologue "Everyone likes to believe that in their time, their war is greatest and most important battle in the world. The sad fact remains that the thought simply isn't the case. The wars of today are no more important than the ones fought yesteryear. They're all important, every decision, and thought made, plays the largest role in the world and time to come. Everything changes: time, structure, society, people, even morals. Yes, what defines good against evil does change. A long time ago, all that it took to be a good man was to serve without question. Now, to be a good man you must destroy the foundations of things. Things change, and that frightens people; they'll do everything within their power to prevent it. People need change. Without, they will never know that what they're doing is wrong. Change is what the world needs; change is what sets them free. People like to underestimate themselves, at least those worth investing in. It is when we think we
