What Does a Kiss Feel Like?Ruby and Penny sat on a bench in one of Beacon Academy’s courtyards. Ruby drank from her cup of water while Penny people-watched. Penny noticed a few students who appeared to be couples. They hugged and laughed and held hands. And kissed. Penny wasn’t a stranger to the concept of relationships, but she didn’t feel like she fully understood it.What Does a Kiss Feel Like? by thecrazyavatarcritic
“Ruby,” asked Penny. “What does a kiss feel like?”
Ruby tried not to spit out her drink.
“W-Where did that come from?”
“I just noticed that some people seem to do it a lot, so I’m wondering what it feels like.”
Ruby blushed as she searched her brain through scattered thoughts for a way to explain such a thing to an android.
“Well, it’s, uh, kinda hard to explain…”
“Oh…then, could you show me?”
Thoughts shot through Ruby’s mind, most of them consisting of excessive amounts of the word ‘what’. She tried to remain calm
Ritsu AkiyamaMio could never tell what was on her girlfriend’s mind. With the all of the ideas the energetic drummer ever came up with, it was hard for anyone to tell. Whatever the case, Ritsu was staring out into space when she was supposed to be studying.Ritsu Akiyama by thecrazyavatarcritic
“Ritsu?” Mio called, trying to get her girlfriend’s attention. Ritsu wasn’t fazed.
‘What on Earth is she thinking about?’ Mio thought.
“Ritsu!” she called again, this time getting an odd response.
“Ritsu Akiyama…” The drummer wondered aloud, her head resting in her hands.

“What?” Mio exclaimed.
“Hm?” Ritsu realized what she said out loud. “Oh, I was just thinking what if I took your name when we get married.”

A Brief Summary/Analysis of Jaune Arc: BadI was replying to a question as to WHY Jaune Arc is not popular with a lot of us, and I decided that this would be a good place to post my argument. Counter arguments are obviously welcomed!
To summarize the issue: Jaune is pretty much everything a character should NOT be. Every second spent focusing on a character should advance either them or the story, and with Jaune neither occurs.
Why? Because of what Jaune has been doing. Harassing people and being comic relief.
