Author has written 25 stories for RWBY.

I Did Not Review your Story:

I do not often write reviews on other stories and would NEVER write a "guest review" on another story. If you believe you have received one from me and it is NOT from a signed in account, then it is fake. It is someone writing a fake guest review and typing my name into the box at the top. It is also likely inflammatory, insulting and written by a troll with nothing better to do than try to implicate me. Please ignore or delete such stupid reviews. Or better yet, don't react at all and give the worthless troll any attention. They've been spamming them for a few months now.

Hi All,

Coeur here, nice to meet you. I'm a writer in England who enjoys the RWBY archive, as well as a few crossover archives. I'm an active writer, with experience in the magazine industry - and hope you enjoy my work!

If you would like to support me, then my P a treon link is below. Just so you know, my fanfiction is always free - and being a supporter on my P a treon does not give you access to any extra fanfiction. That would be illegal. What you get is lessons, articles on how to write your own story (that can be fanfiction or original work, I have students of both) - and also access to me for any questions or advice you might need. As well as any original work of my own unrelated to fanfic. If in doubt, feel free to PM me to ask.

If you want to donate towards me as thanks for my fanfiction, then that is very kind of you. But the P atreon itself is dedicated more towards becoming a writer. The reason I include it here is quite simple... why should you trust a teacher, if you are not certain how well they can write?

I use my fanfiction to promote my P a treon.

Check me out, and if you can spare even a dollar a month - it will mean the world to me!

P a treon - Links to said site do not work, and in fact the word appears to be banned - even if what i offer on it isn't against the terms and conditions of this site.

Either way, you will need to close the spaces on the below and write it into your browser.

My Goal as a Writer here

To write consistently good stories, showing improvement on each fic. I don’t want to be a one-hit wonder, something I worried about when writing “One Good Turn” – thankfully I think I have proved not to be, with the release of Professor Arc. But I want to take it further, producing a third, and even a fourth and more – high quality fics. This will become increasingly difficult however, as I explore more adventurous pairings.

Eventually I hope to run through most of the female cast. I am not a fan of the Yuri/Yaoi pairings, though can happily read them. My problem simply stems from a lot of them featuring very unrealistic romance, i.e. Characters only seem to fall in love because the author wants them to, no desire, no build-up, etc... I will consider writing one after the Jaune pairings are done, we shall see.

Since I get a lot of questions - and I mean a LOT - I've decided to put some FAQ here on the ones I get asked most often:

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I run a story idea by you?

I’d ask you not to. Story ideas are very personal, and I think there is not so much a right or wrong answer when it comes to fanfiction. There are many right and wrong answers when it comes to writing a good story – especially an original story – but that’s not for here.

Mostly, I lack the time and, since I am a writing teacher part-time, I would put far too much time into each and every request, losing hours of my time.

How do you write so much and so often?

Hard work is the only answer here and there are no shortcuts. If you become more experienced, and the only way to do this is to write a lot, then you’ll start to write better first drafts. When you write better first drafts, you can write faster as I do. My stories are certainly not perfect and the simple reason for this is because I cannot go back and edit chapters. Often, I have a single day to write, proof and publish a chapter for you all.

In terms of how much I write, I have to make sacrifices. I don’t watch TV. I don’t use social media. I limit time playing games or such. It requires discipline.

Can I come to you for writing advice?

I’m afraid this is something unlikely to get a response from me in a PM. My time is very limited due to my writing, my job and the lessons I give to paying customers online. If it’s a super short question I may answer it if I have time, but I won’t look over people’s work for them as I simply don’t have the time.

Please understand that when I beta someone’s work, I can spend 4-5 hours on it. Such is not a simple or quick task.

Can you read through my story?

The answer is the same as the above, I’m afraid. Considering I spend a lot of time writing for the RWBY archive, I don’t spend much of my free time reading from it. This isn’t me disliking RWBY or the fanfics here, it’s just me not wanting to burnout or spend all my time drowning in RWBY content.

Can I use the fanart of your stories?

That’s a question for those who the fanart belongs to – not me. I have no control over their work.

My thoughts: I guess? But I’d do as I do and credit the artist in every chapter. It’s only fair and shows respect to the hard work they put forward.

How can I get people to draw fanart?

Again, that’s up to the talented people who draw them. All I can advise is to be a good writer and try to be consistent so that people will want to draw art of your work. I don’t believe I’ve ever asked anyone for art and most people choose to draw it of their own choice.

Why do you like RWBY?

In all honesty I’m not a fan of the plot or story of RWBY but find the lore and world to be very interesting. A world in which people have come to terms with being locked into small territories sounds like Attack on Titan, but with a strange, hopeful quality to it. I also like the idea of a world so pressured that they accept teaching and arming children to fight monsters.

The mix of risking one’s life to fight monsters and going to a school about it is interesting to me. Dystopian without being grimdark.

Why do you use Jaune as a protagonist so often?

Jaune is a common protagonist in my stories and some like to believe he is the only person I can write – which is strange. Perhaps my fingers explode if I write a different character. Ultimately, I like using Jaune because he fits my needs of a character, i.e. an individual with a “motivation”, an “obstacle” and a “conflict that comes from them”.

Simply put, a good character to me needs some goal they wish to achieve (motivation) and a reason why they cannot achieve this goal (obstacle). From the clash of these, a character gains conflict, and conflict drives a story. Jaune has these because his motivation is to become a huntsman and his obstacle is that he lacks the skills and forged his way into Beacon. At any point these could be discovered, and his dream could be ruined, which leads to conflict like shown in the Jaunedice arc of canon with Cardin.

Ruby, by comparison, lacks some of this because her dream is to become a huntress and she is accepted into Beacon in episode 1. Obstacle removed and Ruby doesn’t have any conflict after. She gains a brief one with Weiss over being a leader but… that’s fixed by episode 4 or so.

There are quite a few RWBY characters who don’t have a Goal and Obstacle, and some that never quite gain one. I could make one up for them and have in some cases (Captain Dragon and Stress Relief as examples), but Jaune’s problems are quite compelling and he fits well as an everyman who lacks a lot of the innate advantages and skills the rest of the cast take for granted.

Why does Blake feature so often?

Same reason as above. Blake has a strong motivation and obstacle in that she wants to escape her life in the White Fang, but the White Fang have come to Vale and threatened her new life, and Adam is after her.

This creates conflict and, in canon, you can see that Blake actually drives ALL the conflict of the first two seasons. The only time Team RWBY ever gets involved in the plot is when Blake and her White Fang issues come to the fore. From a purely literary perspective, Blake is just more interesting to me because she has her own conflicts and conflict drives a story.

So, are they your favourite characters?

Actually… no.

When I talk about characters being useful for literary purposes, that doesn’t mean I find them exciting. It just means that they are the most “useful” to me in terms of writing stories. If I based the answer on which characters I liked to see, watch or would like to be friends with, it would be Roman, Neo, Sun and Yang.

I find Blake quite the hypocrite – but that’s fine to me. I like it as a character flaw and find it delicious to write and read about.

There is a difference between "favourite characters" and "favourite characters to use in a fanfic".

Can I take something or use material from one of your stories?


I have no problem with this, and a lot of people have done so. There are plenty of Professor Arc and Service with a Smile-like stories around – and a host of fics where people use the Arc family names and history that I came up with. All I ask is that if you do take a lot of material or it looks similar or has the same concept, include in an author’s note somewhere that it is inspired by me or my story. You don’t need to include it in the summary or anything, just a note near the start.

If it’s not and you’re just happening to write a story that is similar, etc, and it wasn’t inspired by me at all… then don’t mention me. Obviously. It’s perfectly reasonable for two different people to have a similar story concept. I’m hardly the first to write on certain topics and I certainly won’t be the last.


Hunter or Something

For those asking, I have mentioned this may times in all my other fics, but A Hunter or Something is on hiatus due to real life commitments that College Fool had. As the Director for that story, CF was responsible for planning just about everything, which means I CANNOT write it without CF's input. It is CF's story idea, not mine.

Although CF has now returned, despite still being incredibly busy, the slot used for Hunter or Something has been replaced with Relic.

Once a slot opens for it, it will be considered for becoming a live story once more, but I cannot offer any date or timetable for that. Until College Fool has more time to direct the story, it cannot be continued. It is CF's story, not mine. I cannot and will not continue it without CF's input.

The Knight of Lancaster or Something by College Fool reviews
Ruby always loved her fairy tales, especially the romantic ones of noble knights and royal maidens. A pity hers doesn't fit the cliches so neatly, but that's what happens when you prefer guns to gowns and your Prince Charming is mostly that way by accident. Just who is the knight of Lancaster here, anyway? (A young girl's tale of first love, fidelity, and the fate of the Kingdom.)

Redemption by RainStorm4 reviews
Seasons 1, 2 and 3 of RWBY, told through the eyes of Russel Thrush and his team.

CRDL-centric, but with plenty of interaction with the other teams. Russel/Yang ultimately.

Luckily, Blake has a solution to both problems. Sun pretending to be Weiss' boyfriend wasn't what he or Weiss would have ideally wanted, but how hard could it be? It's not like there were any feelings involved.

White Sheep reviews
Every family has its odd member, the one that doesn't fit. Jaune was just that, the black sheep. He had always wanted to be the hero, to be a Huntsman. But when your name is Jaune Salem Arc - Prince of the Grimm - and your mother is understandably against the idea, what is a young man to do? Why, run away to attend Beacon in pursuit of a dream, of course. What could go wrong?

In the Kingdom's Service reviews
Jaune Arc, Field Agent of the VSS - Vale's Secret Service, or at least that's what he's been told. All he knows is that they found out about his faked transcripts, and now he works in the interests of the Kingdom. With terrorists on the horizon, not to mention a shady organisation and an even shadier group operating under Ozpin, what's a bumbling teen turned secret agent to do?

Captain Dragon reviews
Yang wasn't used to leadership, but she wasn't going to accept Ozpin's suggestion of mandatory rest either. Not when it meant losing her spot on Team RWBY. If she had to lead a rookie squad of police officers against the White Fang to prove she could still fight, then so be it. Too bad no one told her the VSPR was made up of Vale's worst criminals, many of which she knew by name.

A Hunter or Something reviews
Jaune was a hunter, hunting animals from a young age. Not Grimm, and never people. Not like the so-called 'real' Hunters he wanted nothing to do with. But when an absent sister asks him to help rescue a missing student, Jaune Arc and Lie Ren will both have to put aside their differences and learn what it means to be true Huntsmen if they're to survive the Grimmlands.

The Beacon Civil War reviews
Jaune had no interest in Ozpin's latest training initiative, especially when it pit boys against girls across Beacon. Cowardice or not, he intended to hide and wait the whole thing out. Leading the male alliance wasn't part of the plan, nor was becoming mankind's final hope. He was a coward, an idiot and a weakling. It was just a shame no one would believe him when he said so!

Not this time, Fate reviews
When Jaune woke up back in his house with his sisters and family, all he could do was sigh. Every time he died he was forced to start over again, and this was what... the one thousandth time? More? If it doesn't matter how hard he tries, doesn't matter how much he fights. Then maybe it's time to just kick back and enjoy himself. Fate can find someone else to be its whipping boy.

The Entertainer reviews
Yang knew better than to look for love in a bar. She was neither foolish nor naive. But when a chance encounter leads to a meeting with a mysterious dancer that has her heart racing, it can be hard to resist. For Jaune, the life he wanted was that of a hero, but such a life required training and the money to pay for it. What is a man to do, but make use of the few talents he has.

Professor Arc reviews
He didn't know the first thing about teaching, Hell, he didn't even know the first thing about fighting! A shame then, that his forged documents painted the picture of an accomplished and skilled warrior. Now he's trapped teaching students his own age how to be hunters, when he doesn't even know himself!

From Beyond reviews
Seeing that young man die in initiation was horrifying for her. Even with all her time in the White Fang, she hadn't expected to see such an idealistic man as Jaune Arc die like that. It should have been nothing more than a tragedy... Instead she's now stuck with the lingering spirit of this guy following her around, and no one else can hear or see him in any way. Jaune x Blake

The Equalizer reviews
Dust was humanity's equalizer against the Grimm, a tool with limitless possibilities – especially when handled with care. Jaune was but a child when he started experimenting, but they say there's lessons to learned, even in failure. Jaune's not sure why his mixtures are considered failed reactions though. [ONE SHOT]

Stress Relief reviews
In a world where your allies can be just as dangerous as your enemies, sometimes it can be difficult for a criminal mastermind to find a little stress relief. That blonde idiot, Jaune, was just unimportant enough, just malleable enough, to be a viable option. It was meant to be a one time thing, an easy lay. Emotions were never supposed to get involved.

One Good Turn Deserves Another reviews
Jaune wasn't exactly Blake's type, but giving him a hand was the least she could do after he helped her out... it didn't have to mean anything - no matter what Yang implied! Also would Ruby cut it out with the knowing looks, I'm just returning a favour! Blake x Jaune realistic romance, focused on their times at Beacon Academy.
