    Summary

    The bullet hit Vi in the fist this time, causing the demon to stumble at the loud ricochet noise startling her. She blinked with surprise at Caitlyn, who only cocked an eyebrow and smirked back.

    “You know,” Vi said, wings outstretched to slow her fall so that her landing was soft, silent, just a puff of wind and dust, “I’m starting to think you like me or something.”

     
    Caitlyn is an exorcist/hunter for the Bureau of Paranormal and Arcane Defence and her latest mission has become an absolute thorn in her side.

    Summary

    “You’ve been fucked up,” she said icily, “ever since Vi left.”

    Caitlyn scowled into her drink. “I have not been fucked up.”

    “Totally fucked up. It’s like someone exited your brain as soon as she left.”

    “That’s not fair,” Caitlyn said, “work’s been killer. You need to put in the time early or you’ll never get ahead.”

    “Then how is it,” Mel replied, “when I dropped off the facial scrub you like, Vi’s water bottle was still on your half wall?”

    Summary

    If Yang weren’t on a horse right now-- Qrow’s horse, and Qrow’s armor, and Qrow’s lance and shield and sword, snuck out from under him while he drowned himself in cheap wine at their parents’ house-- she would punch him. Instead she settles for kicking uselessly out at him. She misses, because of course she does, because she doesn’t know how to do anything in armor, because she’s barely a squire, much less a knight, and is rewarded with the unfamiliar spurs jabbing into the horse’s side on the backswing and then she’s nearly flung off over the horse’s back end when it rears up and sets off at a canter out of the stable.

    There’s no way that Jaune-- stupid, annoying, absurdly talented forger Jaune with his capabilities and his debts and his stupid smiling face-- hears her cursing his entire pathetic bloodline as the horse carries her out of the stable, but she likes to think he does anyways.
