Introduction

Beacon has been attacked by Grim.


It wasn't the first place to be, and before all was said and done, it wouldn't be the last. There had been reports of similar incidents across the world, but this one was particularly shocking, due to the location and the amount of damage done. That, and the perpetrator.

Strangely absent from the chaos was Ivy Elden, a generally well-liked second year student. In fact, almost no one has seen her since the very beginning of the attack, and that includes her team. After the smoke had cleared and Beacon had recovered enough for an investigation, it became very clear that there was a great deal of evidence stacked against Ivy: explosives had been used to breech several of the buildings, something which she had extensive knowledge of. Then there was the box of extra supplies hidden somewhat haphazardly among her things. What was most damning, however, was the testimony made by two separate teams who swore that they saw Ivy fiddling with explosives that later failed to detonate and, separately, luring Grim to the school. After her roommates were ruled out, it was only a matter of days before Ivy was named a wanted woman.

For some that had known her, something about the situation seemed too convenient, too obvious. Besides, what reason would she have to put people she cared about in danger? Now, a few of her friends are setting out to find both Ivy and the truth. However, these young hunters may have bitten off more than they can chew…




Also, a special thanks to DragonDunc, who was of great help in creating this.

Rules

    It's easy-peasy:
  • Be kind
  • Be respectful
  • I'd recommend a once-per-week post minimum, just to keep things moving along.
  • That said, if something happens, or if you need or want to leave at any time for any reason, just let me or someone else know. All I ask is that you don't fall off the face of the Earth; it's cold in space!
  • And most importantly: have fun!

Keeping a snide remark from escaping her lips, she sat up and took out her scroll and checked her messages. Seeing several from her therapist, and knowing what was in them, Death marked them as read and deleted them. 'Later Moonwitch.' she mused with sigh. "Another reaming from the head shrink in my future. Great." Death quipped while collapsing d the scroll and dusting off the twigs from her clothes. Standing after a few minutes,she glanced upward to the sky and touches her tattoo. "When will I stop pushing people away? And actually try to be a better person?" she asked herself.

Donnchad sheathed Neasclaw and leaned against a tree in an attempt to relax, but kept fidgeting and glancing around the trunk. Eventually he resorted to pacing around as usual, eyes darting this way and that.

A look of concern passed over Donnchad's face as Death stood up but he shook it off. Pulling out his own scroll he panned over the map until he found the town Violet was leading them to.

"If you're both ready, I am too." He said, approaching his teammates.

"You took the words right out of my mouth, Donnchad," Violet said, straightening her hair as she started off down the road again. "It's getting kinda late." She resumed her constrained fast walk, making sure not to stray too far ahead or behind from the others. For the rest of the walk, she said little, trying to ignore the pain in her limbs.
Within a half an hour, they reached the outskirts of the town. It seemed well protected, with a wall and metal gates, and when the group approached, a gentleman with a tense face stopped them. "What are you kids doing out here? It's not safe."

"Our job to the world." Death states, her gun metal gaze boring into the man. Being aching and silently preying for a bed or a shower for the last half a hour, the scythe user glanced towards Donnchad with a bored expression. 'You'd think they hadn't seen hunters before.' she mused. Unaware that flashed across her face briefly. Pushing through the locals, since she was on a personal mission, Death held her eyes forward on her task."Stupid beings." she murmured to herself. Mentally noting to steer clear of him in the foreseeable future she wandered into the local hotel. 'Yay.more stupidity.' she thought.

Donnchad collapsed onto the ground as soon as they were at the gates, watching the conversation unfold. He stood up as scythe user entered and gave the man an apologetic shrug as he walked through the gates, hurrying to catch up.

“You mean in training,” he corrected her without thinking. He usually tried not to annoy Death because, truth be told he was quite scared of her. He silently hoped he hadn’t ticked her off with that comment, and scanned the surrounding street to occupy his mind. Eventually he found himself entering the hotel as well.

“Do you think we’ll get any leads by asking around here?” he asked any team members nearby.

Violet kept her eyes more or less on the ground in front of her as she entered the town. Maybe things would look better in the morning. She kept abreast of Donnchad. "Do you have any better ideas?" She asked him. She regretted her tone the minute she said it, but didn't apologize. "It's the best we've got." She tagged along to the hotel. "I think Death's got the right idea, though." She pushed through the door, her eyes taking a moment to adjust. She made her way to the bar. "Excuse me," she said, "I'm looking for a girl. Um…" She pulled up a picture of Ivy on her phone. "This girl."

Death shrugged in reply to Donnchad's question. 'Better than nothing we've done so far.' she thought with a huff. Letting her teammates handle the lead hunting, since they were more inclined to talk, the scythe wielder stopped at the desk stared at the cute rabbit faunus. "Need a room for the night." she states, watching the faunus glance up to her. "Just for you?" Death shook her head and gestured towards the bar. "Me and my team are on an extended search mission." she replied. As the faunus typed away at her console, Death closed her eyes as her fatigue weighted on her.

'Soon.' she thought when a long forgotten tingle raced up her spine. Stiffening briefly, Death glanced over her shoulder and felt her heart clinch. 'Cinder Fall.' she thought. Burying her forgotten feelings under a mask, though it never lasted very long, she sighed softly. 'The only person I loved to the deepest level of my broken soul. And yet she to left me to follow the fallen goddess Salem.' Death mused, shaking her head. "Third floor, room 308B." Nodding and taking the key scroll, she trudged over to Cinder's booth and steeled herself against her traitorous feelings. "Hey there my Black Rose."

Just hearing her ex's husky and smoke like tone was like a body blow she really didn't need at the moment. Given how pain she was in right now. 'Damn you Cinder. Why did you make me love you? If you were just going to abandon me?' she heatedly wondered. "Hi Cin, what brings you here?" Death inquired. "You and your supposed turncoat." 'Don't cave, don't cave.........' she mused, forcing her body to stillness. Meeting the flaming golden gems of Cinder, Death hoped that she didn't see her feelings. "Spill." she murmurs, the usual hardness in her voice just a mere veneer.

"I will, once you get your team." Silently cursing her weakness Death sent a group text. "Guys meet me at the booth with the golden eyed chick, she might have a lead."

Donnchad tagged along to the bar, scanning the room to see where Death was while Violet did the talking. He was never great at this part of their work. Death, he saw, was sorting out their room. She seemed to have spotted someone she recognized but by then Donnchad’s attention was already back on the bar. However, it wasn’t long before he’d received a message telling them to rendezvous at one of the booths.

He looked at Violet and shrugged. "It could be helpful." He would wait to see what Violet decided to do.

Argent became aware of some... Characters of interest the moment the purple dress swished into the building. She was followed by a young man with a sword on his back. Before them, having moved to the desk, was a woman who had a scythe on her back. What.
Behind a mask of bone and cloth, a single eyebrow rose higher than it had in the past week he had been staying in the town. The huntsmen and women he had been traveling with; two teams of four, had stopped off at the beginning of the week, and then abruptly taken off. He had woken far too late, having missed the group message they sent him, and thus was left behind.

For the faunus at the desk, the sight of the lump of silver and white cloth and bone suddenly shifting into a standing position was startling. The ... Man? Teen? Woman? Had been staying at the hotel for just over a week, and had been prone to just waiting in the downstairs lobby, doing nothing. Occasionally it... They? Would get up and move to the bar, order a small drink, and then wander away again.
For Argent, he was far more curious to follow the three who had just walked in, and immediately begun to look out of place. It was interesting! And he was far too curious to see what they would be doing.

Violet looked at the scroll, giving the message a quick scan. She rubbed her forehead with the heel of her hand, trying to push back the beginnings of a headache. “I guess we might as well see. Out of the corner of her eye, she noticed Argent watching them. The hair stood up on the back of her neck. Maybe it was just paranoia, but she still kept glancing back at him as she walked toward the booth. She gave Cinder a quick look. “What’s going on?”

"Nothing much, other than your leader and friend has been ghosting through all four kingdoms under different variations of Death's name for months. Doing odd jobs to get food and lodging." the gem eyed woman said while setting and expand her scroll to show everything she's gathered. "Not to mention that she, from I could gather, stopped using her preferred weapon and took to using a miniature version of rifle sword." she adds.

Death looked away as Cinder spoke to Violet, lost in making that she doesn't crumble into a speechless idiot. 'Why did she have to be here? Why couldn't she stayed with evil goddess she sided with?' the scythe wielder thought, tuning out the White Fang wannabe.

What the gold-eyed woman had to say was certainly interesting - Donnchad should have been paying attention but he had allowed his focus to be drawn elsewhere. Since entering the lobby he’d been trying to scan the room in case of trouble, and one very odd looking figure had stood out in particular. He hadn’t paid too much heed until the bone-clad stranger had stood up, and from out of the corner of his eye it looked like the figure was looking at them.

Instinctively he began to reach toward Neasclaw’s hilt, but he shook off his surprise and lowered his hand.

“Er, sorry,” he apologized to Cinder in embarrassment, in case she’d noticed him not listening properly (and almost reaching for his weapon), “I think someone shady looking is watching us.” It was obvious he’d noticed the stranger now, so rather than trying to stay inconspicuous he half turned toward him and looked squarely at the concealed traveler.

Argent came to a halt once the sword-wielder gave him his full attention. Another eyebrow raised below the bone-mask, and Argent's lips pulled into a grin. His pelt-cape shifted, and from beneath rose a hand that waved in greeting. Argent held the wave a moment longer, before turning away from the group and instead moving directly for the bar. Maybe he should just... Leave them be, for now.

He wove his way around a few of the tables, head pointedly turned away from the group. He sat down at the bar, ordered a water, and otherwise stayed quiet and out of place. Occasionally some of the older patrons would walk up, say hello and chat amicably with the silent figure, who in turn would face them and wave before letting them talk. It's responses were silent, and little more than waves, head nods, shakes, and shrugs. After each person left, the mask would immediately turn back to the group and their golden-eyed counterpart.

Violet was silent and stone faced for the entirety of Cinder’s speech and for some seconds afterward. Her arms were crossed, set in front of her chest. Her fingers drummed on her arm, making a rapid pattering sound on the plastic jacket. Eventually, she reached into her pocket for her own scroll. “Where was she last seen? And can you send all that to me? Just send it to…” As she gave her information to Cinder, she kept glancing back at the bone-masked figure. The hair on the back of her neck was standing up. At the very least, Donnchad seemed to be attentive to the situation. As long as he kept that up and nothing untoward or threatening happened, she decided that they could deal with them later. Taking a long breath, she looked to each of her compatriots, her eyes lingering on Death a moment longer before continuing. “I want to ask you something: why do you care about any of this anyway? And how’d you know what we’re doing?” She glanced again at Death through slightly narrowed eyes, then looked at the ground, irritated with her own suspicion.

"Menagerie, three months ago doing some light medical work." Cinder replied. Meeting the other's gaze evenly she gestured to Death, "I don't actually care, but I figured that you might since you all knew her. And the only person I have feeling towards is Death. Despite how we ended it, she is still my heart." she adds with a slight shrug. Standing Cinder glanced at Death, her feelings flickering briefly before kissing her thumb and pressing it faintly against the scythe wielder's cheek. "You can keep the scroll, was going to get a new one the day after tomorrow. Take care of my Black Rose, she has always kept her heart behind barbwire. Even when opening up is what she needs."

Glaring as Cinder slinked away, Death just heaved a resigned huff, "Thanks for airing my dirt Cin." she mumbles. Allowing her face to hit the table and grunts. "Damn it, wish I could cut her out. But I can't, no matter how hard I try."

Argent watched the quartet from the corner of his eye, his mask leaving no real way to see which direction his eyes might be looking in. The golden-eyed woman had spoken quite a bit, before she stood up and left them alone. His brow furrowed- unseen as it was- as the scythe-wielder bonked her head against the table. Looks like the woman had some... Effect? Hm.

He stood, pelt-cloak swishing about his body as he strode over to the table curiously, taking no time to just maybe think about his actions. "So... She seemed nice! And flirty, eh, eh~?" A grin spread over Argent's lips, while mentally he screamed at his lack of forethought. They didn't know him, and he didn't know them! And now he's trying to start up conversation as terribly as possible for the sake of getting some laughs- "Wait unless she was actually really threatening or something? You've all got these looks on your faces, and I get the feeling that it's not cuz'o my clothes for once.

Donnchad went rigid as he heard an unfamiliar voice behind him - he'd completely forgot about the stranger and spun round only to face the grim visage they were wearing.

"Gah! Monster! A skull-monster is talking to us!" he blurted out, flailing his arms 'defensively', causing him to stumble and lose his footing. He tripped, slipped, and crashed onto the table of the booth which consequently toppled, leaving him in a shambles on the tavern floor, clutching his head.

Groaning, he opened his eyes. "Oh, it's, er...you?" he remarked, coming to his senses.

Argent blinked behind his mask in silence, tilting his head down to stare at the man who was now rather suddenly on the floor. A heartbeat passed before one gloved hand came up and tilted the mask back enough to expose Argent's mouth. A smile spread across the whole of it as he leaned down and offered his other hand. "You ah- took a tumble there buddy!"

Laughter spilled from Argent's lips as he held his hand out to the sword-wielder, mirth bubbling out from his throat at the theatrics. "Am I really that startling? I mean, I haven't really had the chance to see myself in a mirror but hey!"

Re: RWBY: Proof of Innocence

Hey, dudes! So, I have an idea for the bad guys. It's kinda trite, but it's that a group trying to insert themselves and others with them into positions of power. They're using grim attacks as a cover for assassinating key individuals. The ones around the world are the same sort of purpose: covering for the big ones. Ivy and others have been coerced into helping. The idea is that they'd talk the fall, favorable individual would be placed as head, end of story. Then, after the right people were in the right places, they'd "clear up" the grim and stuff and strengthen their authority.
Jeez, sorry, I didn't mean to talk your ears off. Of course, if you have any improvements and stuff, I'd love to hear it!
