Phantom Fan 21: Okay this is my first RWBY story. I’m familiar with the show, I have watch few episodes so I have an idea how it works. Now this story actually is base on a few pictures I found on deviantart. The idea was so good and cool, I can’t stop myself. The pictures were the members of Team RWBY with special types of Grimms that are call Crystal Grimms. Instead of the Crystal Grimms being like the other Grimms (I know what Grimms really are and what they do, like I said, I look the show up a bit) they end up sharing their power with the Members of Team RWBY. The idea is Ruby has travel with her own Grimm name Night Raptor, a Crystal Grimm Velociraptor, a creature that I don’t own and belongs to it rightful owner. The other members will get their Crystal Grimms later, I’m just going to cover Rudy and Night Raptor for a few chapters. I can not do explain how Night Raptor look that well, if you want a better idea of how it looks check out Avaloki from Deviantart. There a picture of Night Raptor that can explain better than I can. Don’t bother looking for jgresidenevil. The Crystal Grimms maybe his idea, but he didn’t draw them. I check. Here we go!
I don’t own RWBY, The show belong to Rooster Teeth.
I don’t own any of the Crystal Grimms. They belong to jgresidenevil from Deviantart.
Chapter 1 Ruby Rose and Night Raptor
“Legends. Stories scattered through time. Mankind has grown quite fond of recounting the exploits of heroes and villains, forgetting so easily that we are remnants, byproducts, of a forgotten past. Man, born from dust, was strong, wise, and resourceful, but he was born into an unforgiving world. An inevitable darkness — creatures of destruction — the creatures of Grimm – set their sights on man and all of his creations. These forces clashed, and it seemed the darkness was intent on returning man’s brief existence to the void. However, even the smallest spark of hope is enough to ignite change, and in time, man’s passion, resourcefulness, and ingenuity led them to the tools that would help even the odds. This power was appropriately named “Dust”. Nature’s wrath in hand, man lit their way through the darkness, and in the shadow’s absence came strength, civilization, and most importantly, life. But even the most brilliant lights eventually flicker and die. And when they are gone. darkness will return. So you may prepare your guardians, build your monuments to a so-called “free world”, but take heed. there will be no victory in strength.”
“But perhaps victory is in the simpler things that you’ve long forgotten. Things that require a smaller, more honest soul.”
A man that had slanted, dark-green eyes and bright, long, orange hair, with long bangs covering his right eye. Black eyeliner traced his visible left eye. He wore a red-lined white suit with long black pants and black shoes. His accessories included a small gray scarf, black gloves with buckled sleeves, and a black bowler hat with a small feather tucked into its red band.
His name was Roman Torchwick a well known criminal and surprising a bit of a gentleman as well. But tonight was different, tonight, he was on a mission. A mission that would led him to his treasure. He and few of his henchmen walkthrough the streets scacing a few bysiders. But he didn’t pay any mind to that, no, he was look at shop call From Dust Till Dawn. Roman and his henchmen enter the shop and walk over to the shopkeeper. Roman flick his cigar and look at the shopkeeper.
“Do you have any idea how hard it is to find a Dust shop open this late?” He asked as one of henchmen point a gun at the keeper.
“P-please! Just take my Lien and leave!” The Shopkeeper said raising his hands.
“Shhh, shhh, shhh, shhh, calm down, we’re not here for your money.” Roman told the keeper in means to calm him down a bit.
“Grab the Dust!” He order his men.
They open a case and pull out a cylinder one at a time before grabbing any and all Dust they could. One Henchman then notices a girl with a red hood that had her back turn to them. The Henchman growl and pull out his sword before walking over to her.
“Alright kid, put your hands where I can see ’em.” He said, but the girl didn’t move.
“Hey, I said hands in the air! You got a death wish or something!?” He said before turning the girl around making her hood drop in surprise.
That when the Henchmen notices that the girl was wearing headphones meaning she didn’t heard him at all. The girl was name Ruby Rose and she was just really minding her own business before the Henchmen grab her. He point to his ears as if to tell her to take her headphones off, which she did.
“I said, put your hands in the air, now!” The Henchmen repeated.
“Are you. robbing me?” Ruby asked.
“Yes!” The Henchmen answer.
“Ooohhh. ” Ruby said before smiling.
Roman stood near the counter, waiting for his men to finish when he heard a shout and saw one of his henchmen fly pass him. He turn to other henchmen that went to deal with what knock away the one. This time Roman saw his Henchmen fly pass him with red on him. Both the Henchmen and Ruby broke through the window of the shop and landed on the street. Everyone else look out the open window and saw Ruby stand up and smile at them. They then watch as Ruby pull out what look to be a red gun, before it shapeshift into a scythe. That cause Roman to growl as Ruby smile and started to twirl the weapon around, striking it into the ground and turning off her headphones.
“Okayyyyy. ” Roman said.
He couldn’t help but to be impress of her skill, even if she was showing off.
“Get her!” Roman order.
The Henchmen ran out and Ruby just smile. She spins around on top of her scythe and kicks the first approaching criminal in the face. She gets Crescent Rose out of the ground and fires it off to hit another one with the butt of her weapon, sending him flying.
“Night Rator!” She said.
Before the two henchmen could blink, they watch as a red light came from Ruby’s weapon before forming into a black creature that stood on it high legs and had a long tail. It also had two yellow eyes that shock them.
“A GRIMM?!” They shouted.
But this wasn’t a original grimm. Instead of a bone like armor, it was cover in red crystals that cover it face and had red crystal teeth. It had red crystal on it chest even had red crystals for it claws on it hands and feet. It also as red crystal spines running down it back and tail with a sharp tail tip at the end.
Roman himself was a bit shock to see this girl having a Grimm by her side. Night Raptor growl before charging a the two men. They both try to attack the grimm but he jump over them and use his tail to trip them both.
“Night Raptor is not just a Grimm, he’s a Grimm Velociraptor.” Ruby explain as Night Raptor bit and threw one of the men at Ruby.
Ruby fired her weapon again and brings the side down on the attacker. Night Raptor knock the other Henchmen weapon out of his hands with it tail before Ruby knock him into the air and follow him upwards so she can beat him away to Roman’s feet. Roman had to admitted this girl was full of surprises. He couldn’t even believe she was working alongside a Grimm of all things.
“You both were worth every cent. Truly, you were. Well, Red, I think we can all say it’s been an eventful evening, and as much as I’d love to stick around. I’m afraid this is where we part ways.” Romen said, dropping his cigar then crush it under his cane before rising it up to show the bottom to reveal a rifle with a cross grid.
Roman unleashes a red blast at Ruby, who fires at the ground and leaps over it. When she lands and looks up, Roman isn’t there, and is climbing up a ladder on a nearby building. Ruby then turn to the Shopkeeper who had just walk out of his shore.
“You okay if I go after him?” Ruby asked the shopkeeper.
The shopkeeper nodded and Ruby turn to Night Raptor who growl at bit before they both went after Romen. Roman makes it to the roof, with Ruby high-flying again along with Night Raptor and landing right behind him.
“Hey!” Ruby shouted getting Roman to stop.
“Persistent. ” He said annoy.
Ruby stood ready and look at Night Raptor who ready to fuse with her if needed. However, their plans were cut short when a Bullhead rises up and opens it’s hatch. Roman got in the Bullhead and look back at the two, holding a red dust gem.
“End of the line, Red.” Roman smile before tossing the gem at Ruby’s feet.
Night Raptor eyes widen when he saw Roman rise his cane and fire at the gem. Night Raptor rush to Ruby hopping to fuse with her to protect her from the blast. Roman laugh as the blast appear to get rid of the girl and her little pet, but was surprised to see someone else there. Someone he knew all too well. A woman in a purple cape is now in front of Ruby, casting a circle of protection over them with her wand. Ruby look up and saw that the person that save her was Glynda Goodwitch, a Huntress. Night Raptor rub Ruby’s cheek that made her rub his head. Glynda was little surprise to see a human and grimm act so calm together but she had others things to take care off.
She waves her weapon and summons several streaks of purple at the craft. Roman is thrown around in the back until he goes to the cockpit, where a woman in red, her face unseen, is struggling with the controls.
“We got a Huntress!” He said, casing the woman to head to the back as Roman took the controls.
Glynda glows purple for a moment and aims another blast above the craft, resulting in a dark storm-cloud right over the jet. Ruby jaw drop in surprise seeing a Huntress in action. Roman on the other hand was shock on what he saw. With a flick of her wand, large jagged hail starts falling that pummels the jet and even breaks through the window, narrowly missing Roman’s head. The woman reaches the back and her arms and chest light up like fire, aiming a burst of energy at Glynda. The Huntress blocks it, but the flame splatters behind her and glows hot with the enemy’s raised hand. Glynda back-flips out of the explosion, which destroys part of the roof, and magically gathers the shards to create a large arrow, which she throws at the craft. The fiery woman shatters the arrow with several blasts, but it reforms just in time to hit the side of the jet due to Roman’s quick aerial lean. The wreckage separates and reshapes into more arrows that encircle the jet, but the woman summons several glowing rings around herself that expand and destroy the shards.
Night Raptor lightly whack Ruby on the back of her head with his tail to get out of her shock. Ruby pull her her weapon and turn it into its gun from and fired. The woman blocks each shot and creates several blazing circles around her two opponents. Glynda telekinetically pushes Ruby and rolls herself out of the explosion radius; looking up to see the hatch close and the craft fly away. Night Raptor growl before turning to Ruby who was in awe-struck.
“You’re a Huntress! Can I have your autograph?!” She asked casing Glynda to look at her and Night Raptor to shake his head.
Ruby look down in shame as Glynda, with a tablet computer, paces around the table Ruby is seated at, right underneath a bright light in the otherwise dark room. Night Rapor had retreated back inside Ruby’s weapon knowing she had to deal with this herself.
“I hope that you realize that your actions tonight will not be taken lightly, young lady. You put yourself and others in great danger.” Glynda told her.
“They started it.” Ruby argue and could feel Night Raptor agreeing with her.
“If it were up to me, you’d be sent home. With a pat on the back. ” Glynda said know she did a good job holding her own.
“And a slap on the wrist.” She added.
“Also your Grimm would taken away and destroy so it can never case harm again.” She said again.
“No! You can’t take Night Raptor! He’s my friend!” Ruby said feeling Night Raptor growl angry.
Glynda raise an eyebrow at that. She’s friends with a Grimm? None the less then was something else she had to do.
“But. there is someone here who would like to meet you.” She said.
Ruby watch in surprise that man dress in green walk in holding a plate of cookies and a mug.
“Ruby Rose. You. have silver eyes.” The Man said seeing Ruby’s eyes.
Ruby wasn’t sure how to respond to that. She could even feel Night Raptor grunt in confusion. However the man stood back up before she could asked.
“So! Where did you learn to do this?” He asked pointing at the tablet that was showing Ruby fighting skill.
“S-Signal Academy.” Ruby answer nervously.
“They taught you to use one of the most dangerous weapons ever designed?” The Man asked.
“Well, one teacher in particular.” Ruby said.
“I see. ” The man said before setting the plate of cookies down in front of her.
Ruby look at the cookies before eating one. When she didn’t see any rebuttal, she started to shove the rest in her mouth.
“It’s just that I’ve only seen one other scythe-wielder of that skill before. A dusty, old crow. ” The Man said thinking.
“Oh! That’s my uncle!” Ruby said with her mouth full.
She felt Night Raptor give her a small roar to remind her not to talk with her mouth full. She swallow and wipe her mouth.
“Sorry. That’s my Uncle Qrow! He’s a teacher at Signal. I was complete garbage before he took me under his wing. And now, I’m all like— Hooowaaah! Witchaaaa!” Ruby said before making noises and felt Nigh Raptor sigh.
“So I’ve noticed. And what is an adorable girl such as yourself doing at a school designed to train warriors?” The Man asked sitting at the table.
“Well. I want to be a Huntress.” Ruby admitted.
“You want to slay monsters?” The Man asked with a smile.
“Yeah! I only have two more years of training left at Signal! And then I’m going to apply to Beacon! You see, my sister’s starting there this year, and she’s trying to become a Huntress, and I’m trying to become a Huntress ’cause I wanna help people. My parents always taught us to help others, so I thought, Hey, I might as well make a career out of it! I mean the police are alright, but Huntsmen and Huntresses are just so much more romantic and exciting and cool and really, gosh, you know!” Ruby explain.
“And what about the Grimm?” The Man asked.
“Night Raptor and I been together since my first year at Signal Academy. He hides in my Crescent Rose so he doesn’t scare people away. I know he’s a Grimm but he harmless unless I tell him to attack or if I’m in trouble.” Ruby explain, not wanting to go too deep into her and Night Raptor past.
Both the Man and Glynda look at each other before the Man turn back to Ruby.
“Do you know who I am?” He asked.
“You’re Professor Ozpin. You’re the headmaster at Beacon.” Ruby said.
“Hello.” Ozpin said smiling.
“Nice to meet you.” Ruby said.
“And hello to your Grimm too.” Ozpin added.
Ruby felt Night Raptor does it best to mimic a scoff, that she roll her eyes it.
“He said it nice to meet you too.” Ruby said.
“Oh? You can understand him?” Ozpin asked.
“Short of. We been together so long, I learn to understand his growls and roars and he understand me in return.” Ruby explain.
Ozpin nodded before smiling at Ruby.
“You want to come to my school?” Ozpin asked.
“More than anything.” Ruby answer truthfully.
Ozpin look at Glynda who gives a disapproving look, but didn’t voice her thoughts.
“Okay.” Ozpin smile.
Ruby smile back. She was going to Beacon. She couldn’t wait to see her sister.
“Oh, I can’t believe my baby sister is going to Beacon with me! This is the best day ever!”
Ruby was starting to regret her choice when her sister Yang started squeezing the air out of her. She could feel Night Raptor made a chuckle noise knowing he was safe inside her weapon. In fact Ruby never told Yang about Night Raptor. They only people that knew was her Uncle, her father and now Ozpin and Glynda.
“Please stop.” Ruby beg, trying to breath.
Yang let go of Ruby and smile.
“But I’m so proud of you.” Yang said.
“Really Sis, it was nothing.” Ruby said waving it off.
“What do you mean? It was incredible! Everyone at Beacon is going to think you’re the bee’s knees.” Yang asked then explain.
“I don’t want to be the “bee’s knees”, okay? I don’t want to be any kind of knees! I just want to be a normal girl with normal knees.” Ruby explain.
“What’s with you? Aren’t you excited?” Yang asked a bit confuse.
“Of course I’m excited. I just. I got moved ahead two years. I don’t want people to think I’m special or anything.” Ruby said due to never being good with crowds.
“But you are special.” Yang said giving her a soft hug.
Ruby felt Night Raptor gave a small growl as if he agrees with Yang. Ruby sigh and they all turn to the 2-D animated newscast on Vale News Network playing nearby, talking about the robbery and showing Roman’s mugshot.
“The robbery was led by nefarious criminal Roman Torchwick, who continues to evade authorities. If you have any information on his whereabouts, please contact the Vale Police Department. Back to you, Lisa.” The voice said.
Ruby felt Nigh Raptor growl at the name and she had a feeling she was going to run into him again.
The mugshot changes to Lisa Lavender, with a photo of animal-eared demonstrators holding signs saying “WE ARE NOT ANIMALS!” followed by an image of the logo of a growling red wolf’s head with three scratch marks.
“Thank you, Cyril. In other news, this Saturday’s Faunus Civil Rights protest turned dark when members of the White Fang disrupted the ceremony. The once peaceful organization has now disrupted. ” Lisa started to say before the feed is cut off as a hologram of Glynda replaces it.
“Hello, and welcome to Beacon!” She said.
“Who’s that?” Yang asked.
“My name is Glynda Goodwitch.” She said.
“You are among a privileged few who have received the honor of being selected to attend this prestigious academy! Our world is experiencing an incredible time of peace, and as future Huntsmen and Huntresses, it is your duty to uphold it. You have demonstrated the courage needed for such a task, and now it is our turn to provide you with the knowledge and the training to protect our world.” Glynda said before she disappear.
Ruby walk over to the window and look over the city she been living and protecting in.
“Oh, wow! Look, you can see Signal from up here! I guess home isn’t too far after all!” She said and felt Night Raptor made a small growl in agreement.
“Beacon’s our home, now.” Yang told her.
Ruby smile before the heard someone groaning and hunched over nearby before running to the back of the ship.
“Well. I guess the view isn’t for everyone.” Yang said rolling her eyes.
“It was a nice moment while it lasted.” Ruby agree.
Ruby look out the window and could see Night Raptor reflection standing next to her. Ruby smile at the Crystal Grimm knowing this was going to be the greatest thing ever.
“I wonder who we’re gonna meet! I just hope they’re better than Vomit Boy. Oh, Yang, gross! You have puke on your shoe!” Ruby asked before noticing some on Yang shoe.
“Gross, gross, gross, gross, gross, gross, gross, gross!” Yang shouted.
“Get-Get away! Get away from me! Get away from me! Get away from me! Get away from me!” Ruby yelled not wanting any of puke on her.
And that’s it. Up next ruby will be the rest of her future teammates and learns she not the only with a Crystal Grimm. And yes, I’m redoing all the Volumes of RWBY. I just started watch Volume 1 and I like it so far. I know I have a lot to catch up on, but I really like the show!
