Greetings, all!

We'd like to give a big thank you to everyone who took a little time out of their day to try their hand at writing an adventure for Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang to go on! What happens now? The artists will select comments they like, we'll string it all into a plot, and we'll start on the comic!

What do you have to do? Watch the latest RWBY episode so that you can talk about it in the discussion post tomorrow!

See you then! And see you the week after for the finished comic!
That's right! We're making a community comic! THAT'S RIGHT! YOU are the community! You! Yes, you!

Here's how this will work: everybody put on your writer hats and think about what Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and/or Yang are going to do in this comic. You all are going to write a comic in which they go on a (probably) comedic adventure!

How will it happen? Everyone posts ten individual, independent comments. Yes, ten un-associated comments per person! You get a total of 10 random comments! However, each comment can only contain ONE short to average-length sentence! I recommend that each writer come up with a few "beginning" sentences, a few "plot" sentences, and a few "ending" sentences.

Here is an ANIMATED version of the idea! Write your comments like these charming folks did!



Again, these sentences should be short-medium length sentences, they should be independent statements not dependent on the last comment you made. The artists will string them into a plot, like in the video.

Here are your writing instructions:

1. For the intro sentences, use specific names. Ruby, Weiss, Blake, Yang. If you want it to start off as a group, great! If you want it to start off with just one, two, or three people, great!

2. For non-intro sentences, don't use specific names. Use "she" or "they" when referring to a character, so that the sentences can be swapped and connected like Lego blocks. This will allow the plot to be more easily constructed.

3. Don't write a sentence that requires too much effort from an artist; the comment will not get picked, because a lot of these artists are busy!

4. Don't REPLY to comments to make a comment chain plot. Compliments are fine, but if you want your comment to have the best chance of getting picked, it needs to stand on its own.

Here is a hypothetical example of how such a "plot" would look:
"One day, Ruby ran out of milk.

Crying, she ran to Blake and said, 'You must fight the evil on your own and in your heels!'

Frowning, she said, 'You are already dead.'"

So maybe it got a little JoJo there, but you get the idea. In this example, THREE different people were thinking THREE different things. Is it funny? Not in the slightest! Is it fun? Yes, we're all going to have a blast with it. XD

"Wait a minute, knives4cash! Who's even drawing this thing?!" So glad you asked!

I'll thank all of them again for setting aside some of their time to do this fun little thing. Give them something worth drawing!

Okay! There you go! If anyone has any questions, ask below, note the group, or note an admin! You should probably note the group, because your question will get buried in plot comments.

GO! COMMENT NOW, DO IT NOW!





So, now that we plebeians have gazed upon its holiness, what did we think about it! What did we like, what did we--dare I say-- NOT like? Be careful, this is the internet. Other opinions that differ from yours are surely as dangerous as a radicalized terrorist freedom-fighting teenager with cat ears!

This was an interesting continuation of the last one. What did we think of the one, big action scene? How about that eerie little side-journey, followed up by the finale?

We also have an on-going community RWBY comic that needs your short to medium length sentences now! Community RWBY Comic #1That's right! We're making a community comic! THAT'S RIGHT! YOU are the community! You! Yes, you!

Greetings, all!

We had twenty entries in this contest, with amazing talent and family-friendly humor (up your game, plz) in the entries! Thanks to the wonderful invention of democracy, we can finally see who liked what the most! That popularity can now go to your heads for fifteen minutes before the internet forgets! :D

In fifth place, we have:

RWBY Contest - Santa Ruby by Swissfonda by :iconswissfonda:, who recognizes that Ruby's super speed will revolutionize the redistribution of wealth across all of Remnant! Good thinking, SwissFonda!

In fourth, we have:

Winter by sakohju by :iconsakohju: What better way to win a winter contest than to put Winter in your winning Winter Contest! You also did a great job on that perspective, Sakohju!

In third, following up on that line of thought, we have:

Winter Schnee by Algirium by :iconalgirium: who also understands the importance of brand recognition! XD Great design, Algoirium!

In second, we have:

Winter Stroll by Cal-Tran by :iconcal-tran: who knows what we all want: Avatar Zwei! XD No, Zwei taking Ruby out on a winter stroll is a cute idea, and I applaud your efforts, Cal-Tran!

And finally, can we get a big, loud drum-roll for first place! Ladies and gentlemen, may I present first place!


Waiting for Summer (Animated) by ari-6 by :iconari-6: who loves torturing little girls with their dead mothers. The fact that y'all voted him into first says a lot, too. Haha, great job, ari!


And there we go, folks! The top five winners of the winter contest for 2017! With that established, let's divvy up the prizes!

:iconari-6:, in recognizing that we had only a few prizes this time, offered to share his winnings with his fellow winners! A selfless act that he learned from the 24/7 Barney marathons on youtube, no doubt. Thank you, Ari! Because of this, starving artists will still be starving but hey prizes are cool! But don't worry! You still get your art featured in the :iconmanga-anime--art: group!

:iconcal-tran:, because of our communist utopia, you receive Ari-6's animated gif prize! Note him to negotiate a short gif idea of your favorite RWBY character in dramatic action, or sipping a drink! Your winning entry will also be featured in the Manga-anime--art group!

:iconalgirium:, you win a customized chibi piece from :iconanahbois:! Note her to discuss which adorable, pudgy figure you'd like to see! And you get your entry featured in the Manga-anime--art group!

:iconsakohju:, you have won a half-body of a canon or OC character in any style from :iconanjyil:! Engage in negotiations to decide who shall be brought to life on the 2D screen! Your entry will also be featured in the Manga-anime--art group!

:iconswissfonda:, your entry will be featured in the Manga-anime--art group!


And there we go, folks! I would like to thank all twenty of the contestants for taking time our of your day to make this fun piece and do apologize for only having three art prizes and an extra feature! Next time will probably have a higher yield when everyone's not running around for the holidays.

At any rate, a job well done to the artists, a job well done to the mob, er, I mean voters! Thank you all, and to all I say:

Stay tuned for a special event. Coming to this DA group near you.
