37 First Steps

After finishing the steak I decided to leave my room and try to talk to some people. Most of them walked away after I tried walking up to them. Others just pretended that I wasn't even there.

Seeing as nobody really wanted to talk I decided to go and look for the main cast of the show.

The plot follows the story of RWBY. The team RWBY is made up of Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long. Ruby Rose is the lead of the team and classified as a genius who was able to get into Beacon at the age of 15.

Then there is also the 'Side Protagonists' of RWBY. It's name is JNPR and is made up of Jaune Arc, Nora Valkyrie, Pyrrha Nikos, and Lie Ren. Jaune Arc is the leader of the team because of his strategic mind.

However I can't talk about this to anyone because the ceremony hasn't even started yet.

Looking around I wasn't able to find anyone except Jaune and Ren who where on exact opposite sides of the room. Seeing as I already talked to Jaune, I went over to Ren.

"Uhhhhhh.... Hi?"

'Shit, I didn't think of anything to say.'

Ren just looked up from his book he was reading and said, "Do you need something?"

"No, I just was looking for someone to talk to."

"Then you've come to the wrong place I'm sorry to say. My friend Nora on the other hand would probably be overjoyed to find someone to talk to."

I took another quick look around but still wasn't able to find Nora.

"I'm good, thanks though. So hey, what's that story about?" I asked while looking at his book

Ren simply folded the corner of the page and handed the book to me. The Man With Two Souls was the title of the book and was very similar to what Ozpin was and how one person died and his soul was put into another person.

I turned around, put my back against the wall, and slowly slid down it. Speed reading through it I ready around ten pages per minute. Ren just looked at me with a blank expression that said, "Really?"

After finishing the book I handed it back to him and started talking about it in detail with him. His expression changed to one of surprise that I actually read all of it in the very short time that he was watching me.

We continued talking back and forth about if for a good while until it got dark and Ren said that it was time for him to sleep as he, and I quote, "Have to deal with Nora's excitement."

I just nodded because from what I can remember about the story, it seemed as if she chugged a bottle of five hour energy every minute.

Getting off the floor, I stretched for a bit and cracked my back.

"Alright then Ren, see you tomorrow for Initiation or whatever it's called."

Ren just nodded back and started to read his book again.

Seeing as I had something to do in the morning, I went back to my room and tried falling asleep. After a bit of time I wasn't able to so I just used my powers to make me fall asleep and to wake me up at 6:30 Am so that I could be prepared.

~Couple Hours Later~

[Beep Beep Beep Beep Beep Beep Beep Be-]

'System please shut up'

[Affirmative Eric.]


Opening my eyes I stared up to the ceiling and took a deep breath. After that I got out of bed and got dressed into something else. Knowing that today will be my day to show off I think I should wear something nice.

Snapping my fingers my outfit changed into a long sleeve dress shirt with a suit tuxedo, dress pants, and dress shoes. I pretty much made myself into a bartender.

Finishing up the look I rolled my sleeves up to my elbows.

Making a mirror appear I looked at myself and all I could think was, 'Damn do I look'. I fixed up my tie and left my room to head towards initiation. Using my powers I found that it was on top of Beacon Cliff which was right next to the emerald forest.

Halfway through my leisurely walk to Beacon Cliff a announcement came on the speaker.

"Would all first year students please report to Beacon Cliff for initiation? Again, all first year students report to Beacon Cliff immediately."

I picked up my pace a bit and got there in about ten more minutes. Waiting there was all of the teams, Ozpin, and Glynda. Each person except Glynda and Ozpin where standing on specific squares. I quickly went to the end of the line and stood on the last open square.

Ozpin seeing this walked to the center of the area and started talking.

"For years you have trained to become warriors. And today, your abilities will be evaluated in the Emerald Forest."

Glynda then started speaking up as well.

"Now, I'm sure many of you have heard the rumors about the assignment of teams. Well, allow us to put an end to your confusion. Each of you will be given teammates... Today."

(Ozpin) "These teammates will be with you for the rest of your time here at Beacon. So it is in your best interest to be paired with someone with whom you can work well. That being said, the first person you make eye contact with after landing will be your partner for the next four years. After you've partnered up, make your way to the northern end of the forest. You will meet opposition along the way. Do not hesitate to destroy everything in your path, or you will die. You will be monitored and graded for the duration of your initiation. But our instructors will not intervene. You will find an abandoned temple at the end of the path containing several relics. Each pair must choose one, and return to the top of the cliff. We will regard that item, as well as your standing, and grade you appropriately. Are there any questions?"

Jaune then raised his hand and said, "Yeah, um sir-"

"Good!" Ozpin interrupted, "Now, take your positions."

Everyone then got into a battle ready position except for Jaune who was still raising his hand. Then someone was catapulted into the forest.

"Uh, sir? I've got, um, a question. So, this landing strategy thing, uh, w-what is it? You're, like, dropping us off or something?" Jaune said

*More people catapulting*

"No. You will be falling."

*Even more people catapulting*

"Oh, I see. So, like, did you hand out parachutes for us?"

"No. You will be using your own landing strategy."

*Down to the final 3 people*

"Uhhuh... Yeah."

*2 more*

"So, um, What exactly-"

*1 more*

"is a landing strateGYYYYY!!"

*Jaune was sent flying*

5 seconds later I myself was then sent flying.

Most people where using their unique weapons to land safely. For example, Ren was using his gun's blades to get down a tree. Weiss was using glyphs to run across the sky and slowly get down to the ground.

I decided to do it a fancy way and just slowly fall down like a leaf. I even decided to lay down with my arms behind my head and legs crossed.

Slowly falling, I took my time to get down and just before I hit the ground, stepped down and stood up straight. I looked around and saw a couple of black creatures with white bone like extrusions coming out to form a mask and some spikes. On the mask was some red marking that lead to their glowing red eyes.

Immediately upon seeing me, they rushed to me and starting growling angrily.

'Wonder what weapon I should use in this world...' I thought as I walked up to them with my hands in my pockets

The black creatures, aka The Grimm, continued running towards me when I had a idea.

'Multiple Knives! With strings attached so I can manipulate them!'

Then pulling my hands out of my pocket, I held a long black and white throwing knife in each hand. To complete the look, I transformed my belt into one that was capable of holding multiple throwing knives.

I quickly threw knife through each of the Grimm's heads and pulled them back out with the strings, kinda like a yo-yo.

Walking in a straight line towards the center of the forest, I continued killing each and every Grimm I saw. After walking for a long time I finally got to the ruins that Ozpin was talking about. In the destroyed ruins was multiple chess pieces that where either gold or black.

Both team RWBY and team JNPR was already there. In the background was Pyrrha fighting a giant scorpion grimm. Weiss was sitting on top of Jaune who was complaining about his back. Everyone else was just standing in front of the ruins watching them.

I walked over to everyone and tried to squeeze my way through. Ren already knew who I was so he gladly moved over to try and let me get a piece. Nora who was at his side, jumped up and down when she saw Ren move for me.


'Oh god she reminds me of Asta' I thought

I just turned to Ren and he just shook his head in understanding.

Everyone else was just staring at me in confusion as to where I came from and who I am. By the time anyone else tried speaking up I was already at the pieces. The ones that where taken where the Rooks and the Knight pieces.

Instead of choosing a big piece in chess like the bishop, or something like that, I instead went for the pawn. While it may seem like a simple peace, it has the potential to become a even better piece when it reaches the end of the enemy lines. It seems pretty cool.

Putting the piece in my inventory I turned around and saw that everyone was just staring at me in amazement except for Jaune who was finally off the ground. I walked up to Jaune and put my hand out for a hand shake.

Jaune grabbed it and when he did, I pulled him into a hug and said in a whisper that only he can hear, "So, how's the System?"

Whispering back to me really quickly, Jaune said, "It made me run a couple of miles at 5 Am, then do some tiring exercises, and threatened to send me into another dimension if I didn't train. I hate this so much ;-;." (Author Note- Think of 'Only I Level Up's System for now)

"It gets better."

Finally I ended out bro hug and saw that the giant scorpion was heading our way with Pyrrha running towards us. With a sigh I turned towards it and pulled out some knives.

"Let me show you how this is done Jauney Boy."
