[RWBY Volume 5 Opening – Triumph] Back to the fairytale, Back to the show Back to the wall and there’s nowhere to go Hopeless and desperate, all paths adverse Things looking bleak and there bound to get worse Helpless and doomed and there’s no way to win Goals unachievable faith running thin Lost and forlorn impossible odds That’s when you’ll learn you’ve been messing with gods Send in you Grimm tear off my limb Strike me with bolts of lightning I won’t die The battle seems unwinnable, but all’s we needs a miracle We’re going up we’ll never be denied Can’t wish away the dismal days, can’t bring back what is gone Won’t waste more tears on yesteryears, instead we’ll carry on We’ll win we’re sure we will endure and though our goal is far We’ll be the one’s to touch the sun The Triumph will be ours Yang: How much further, pal? Shady Man: This should just about do it. You wait here. I’ll go up ahead and make sure the coast is clear. Shady Man: I can’t believe you were dumb enough to let me lead you here. Yang: Is this everyone? Shady Man: (chuckling) Yes, little lady. This is it. Well, unless you count the whole rest of the camp back that way. Yang: That way? Shady Man: Yes. That way. Yang: Good to know. Thanks. Shady Man: Now to pay me back for this tooth, we’re going to take your bike. And you’re going to take your lumps. Shady Man: You got the jump on me last time, sweetheart. But you really ought to think twice about fighting all— Shady Man: Alright… Get her! Shady Man: Who are you? It doesn’t even matter. When Raven finds out what you did, you’re dead! Yang: Possibly. But I doubt it. I’m her daughter, after all. I’m dead. Jaune: Man, Oz wasn’t kidding. Oscar’s picking up on this stuff fast. Oh my gosh. I’m so sorry! Ha! Yes! I did it! Oscar? Ozpin: (mentally) You forgot to engage your Aura again. Oscar: Why didn’t you tell me?! Ozpin: (mentally) Because this method makes you less likely to forget. Ozpin: (mentally) Mind if I give it a shot? Ozpin: Not bad, Miss Rose. But Oscar doesn’t have the years of training that you do. Or I do. Ruby: Oh, heh, ha, well, maybe we should uh… take a break. Nora: Ouch. Ozpin: The next time you want to throw a left cross, remember to push off with the appropriate foot. And as always, do be aware of any openings. Ruby: Got it. Ruby: Oh! Hey. Are you okay? Oscar: How is this so exhausting? Ren: Your body isn’t used to this kind of training, Not to mention generating a defensive Aura on your own. It takes intense concentration at first, but in time it will become second nature, allowing you to deflect attacks and gradually heal your wounds. After that, you can begin focusing on your Semblance, whatever that may be. Oscar: Semblance? Nora: You know! Like your very own superpower! Everybody’s got one. It’s just a matter of finding it and mastering it. Ruby moves super fast, electricity makes me stronger, Ren can mask emotions, and Jaune… can, uh, um. Hmm Jaune: I can’t do anyth— Ruby: Jaune’s like you! Ruby: He hasn’t found his Semblance yet, but we all know he will. And you will, too. We all just have to try and help each other get stronger. Oscar: Cool. Ren: A common philosophy is that a warrior’s Semblance is a part of who they are. Some say your personality and character can define your Semblance while some claim that it is the other way around. Of course, there are still many who don’t see a connection at all. Nora: It’s hard to know when you know sometimes. Ren’s Semblance was unlocked from intense stress. Ruby: And mine kicked in during training one day. Oscar: What about you? Nora: Oh. Struck by lightning. Didn’t die. Crazy Thursday. Jaune: I just don’t understand what’s wrong with me. I train. I meditate. But… Ozpin: Don’t worry, Mr. Arc. Your journey is far from over. And the same might be said for all of you. Unlocking your Semblance isn’t the end. It can still grow and evolve. Providing you’re willing to put in the work, who knows what could happen. Ruby: Then let’s get back to it. Yang: Mom. Yang. So, after all this time, you finally decided to visit me. You know that I searched for you. I spent years looking for you. And you’ve found me. You were patient, determined, and strong enough to make your dream a reality. Well done, Yang. But did you have to be so rough with my men? I didn’t want a fight. They started it. Well, you certainly finished it. Raven: Right. I’m sure this is all very overwhelming. But I must admit that you’ve proven yourself. So any questions you have I’ll be happy to answer. You can stay with us tonight. I’ll even have the cooks whip up something for you. Yang: That’s not why I’m here. What was that? I’m not here for you. Ruby is somewhere in Mistral. She’s with Qrow, and she’s going to need my help. I just need you to take me to her. Raven: And why would I do that? Yang: Because we’re family. Family. Only coming around when they need something. I have to say, I’m disappointed. After all, you found me, didn’t you? Why not take that drive and use it to find your little sister if she really means that much to you? Yang: Because you’re going to save me time. Ruby was heading to Mistral, but there’s no guarantee she’s made it there. Looking for her in Anima could take ages. But… Dad told me how your Semblance works. Tai… You can bond to certain people. And when you do, you could create a portal that takes you straight to them. You’ve got one for Dad. One for me. And you’ve got one for Qrow. He promised me he’d watch out for Ruby before he left. And I trust him. So, make a portal to my uncle and sister, and I’ll be on my way. Raven: You know, it takes real strength to march in here and demand such a favor of me. I’ve got to say, I’m impressed. It’s very noble to want to help out your sister. But if she’s with Qrow, then she’s already a lost cause. Yang: What does that mean? You don’t want to get mixed up in all of that, Yang. Ozpin is not the man you think he is. And Qrow is a fool for trusting him. I would know, I trusted him once, too. I don’t care what you think. Raven: Your choice is your own. All I’m suggesting is that instead of getting wrapped up in something too big for you, for any of us, that maybe you take a moment to wonder if you’re already where you belong. Yang: Save your breath. You can spout off whatever you want, but nothing is going to keep me from my sister. Well, aren’t you stubborn. Yang: I get it from my mom. Well, if that’s how you feel, then it sounds like we’re done here. Take her away. Did you not hear me? I said send me to Qrow, damn it! Bandit Two: That’s enough! You watch your mouth in front of our leader! Make me. Yang? Weiss?! Alright, well, subtlety is out. What is that? Don’t worry about it. What are you doing here? Well, that’s my mom and she can take us to Ruby. Raven: Ugh. Your mom kidnapped me?! You kidnapped her?! Vernal: Enough! Raven: Thank you. If you people don’t keep it together this place will be crawling with Grimm. Give the girl her weapon back. Raven: You two. In my tent. Now. Yang: Why? If you’re really going after your sister, then you need to know the truth. Yang: Sorry about- I missed you so much. I missed you, too.
