RWBY as a show is amazing.
There's nothing to argue that fact.
I could go on and on about how great the show is, the characters are and how I'm so excited for future episodes, but I'm just gonna write about how much RWBY means to me and how much it meant to my sister.
I started watching RWBY probably three years ago at the end of 2015 and I was so into the idea of all these fairy tale people in a modernish environment kicking ass and being super cool. I binged all that had been put out so far and was so excited to show it to my sister who was ten at the time.
When I showed my sister the show she was on the level that I was of excitement and I rewatched all the episodes I had basically just watched just to see her reaction to it. She was amazed and awed and I was so happy that we would have this show together. Her mom was my stepmom and my dad had separated from her so I only saw my sister every weekend, but each weekend we came together to watch this show and watch it grow as we grew ourselves. We laughed, we cried, we had a good time. It was something that I was excited about each week because I knew that come the weekend her and I would come together to watch this show we both loved.
My sister lived only one town over originally so it was easy to see her every weekend until last year when her mom decided to move to a town that was an hour and a half away, so seeing her every weekend wasn't exactly an option anymore. But despite all of that, when I did get to see her, when she finally came back to me, I let her know that despite the change in how often we saw each other, our traditions wouldn't change. We still watched RWBY together, usually like three episodes, and we just spent that time together.
My sister is like my kid to me almost. I love her more than everything and from the first moment I saw her in my life I wanted nothing more to protect her and make he happy. She was kinda like Ruby a bit because she was so happy and lovely and fun and her just being there just brightened my day. I'll miss her forever.
My sister died in June of 2018. It was a lot and she was going through things and I wish I could have been with her everyday to make her feel better. I couldn't really watch RWBY for the few months after that.
Recently I've gotten back into RWBY, and I'm really happy because it kind of brings me back to when we were together. It makes me feel better when everything is just sadness. The show was so important to us when we were together and now that it's just me I guess I'll just watch for the both of us.
But I'll forever be grateful for the show for letting us have those moments together.
Love you G
