[[folder:Authors and Websites]]
''[[ knives4cash]]''
* Recommended by Insano, Mcnickel
* knives4cash is a pleasure to read when it comes to one-shot shipping and friendship for the White Rose and Bumblebee pairings. With over forty works on the shelf with his series "Pollination: The Bumblebee and White Rose," you'll be laughing and smiling for a good while, and the occasional references, crossovers, and alternate history writing make the experience even better.

''[[ Momoxtoshiro,]]'' also known as [[ Hana]]
* Recommended by: Mcnickel
* As above, a writer who focuses on one-shots of Romance and friendship. Top quality work, though her fics [[ "Roses"]] (about Ruby and Weiss' [[Main/AppliedPhlebotinum Dust-born child]]) and [[ Transiency ]] (Not gonna spoil), received criticism for being too sad.


[[folder:Multi-chapter Fics]]

"[[ The Hero's Burden]]" by [[ Klinestife]]
* Recommended by xThymus, legomelons
* ''Sypnosis'': Fanfiction where the author expands on the current canon by adding scenes not shown in Volume 1 to flesh out the world and story. Semi-AU, as it uses OCs and much of the author's own interpretation of dust and aura. Author updates once a week.

* ''Tags'': Rated T, a couple of OOC characters
[=[[reviews:The White Rose of Vermilion]]=]

''[[ Massages]]'' by [[ H'te Rarpee]]
* Recommended by ultimomant, Mcnickel, Blazing Guns
* ''Synopsis'': Yang's back is sore, so Jaune gives her a massage. Hilarity, [[NotWhatItLooksLike wrong impressions]], and [[GaryStu Jaune Stu]] ensue.
* ''Comments'': While it begins as a hilarious UnwantedHarem story, it starts to have a real plot and get dark.
* ''Tags'': Rated T

''[[ With Friends Like These]]'' by [[ Siderial]]

* ''Synopsis'': With friends like these, who needs enemies? Team RWBY during their time at Beacon Academy.

''[[ Blood Rose]]'' by [[ Rapey Lemons]]
* Recommended by onebossonesnake
* ''Synopsis'': Ruby becomes a part-cannibal, part-rapist, all-psycho murderer and goes on the run after being discovered.
** Warning: This fic goes off into the gore side of PsychoLesbian and ''stays'' there. A still beating (and presumably attached) heart has been eaten in this fic, described in detail. Avoid if squeamish.
* ''Tags'': Rated M, non-canonical; contains romance, gore, and LOTS of violence. Author is working to make the fic three acts, each with 50 chapters. At time of writing, Act I (the link) is at 42 chapters.

''[[ My Final Judgment Day]]'' by [[ crystalessence]]
* Recommended by sam445
* ''Synopsis'': After her father's execution, Blake Belladona finds herself abandoned in the streets of Vale, where she will make the encounter of a shy Velvet.
* ''Tags'': Rated T, non-canonical; contains emotions, hurt/comfort.

''[[ Pyrrha(c) victory]]'' by [[ The Rogue King]]
* Recommended by ultimomant, Serial Killer Whale.
* ''Synopsis'': A story revolving around Pyrrha's affections for her goofball of a leader, Jaune's total obliviousness and all the hijinks in between. And of course, the rest of the RWBY cast will be there to put in their own useless opinions.
* ''Tags'': Rated T

''[[ Another Day at Beacon]]'' by [[ Alley Cat Sunflower]]
* Recommended by Insano, fseftr
* ''Synopsis'': Jaune has no idea what he's doing. Nora is hyperactive. Pyrrha is composed but overwhelmed. Ren just wants some peace. Ladies and gentlemen, Team JNPR. With a room shared between these four disparate personalities, what shenanigans can ensue over the school year?
* ''Tags'': Lie Ren, Nora Valkyrie, Jaune Arc, Pyrrha Nikos

''[[ Various Vytal Ventures]]'' by [[ Rassilon001]]
* Recommended by ultimomant, [=LastNobody=], bluedragonx
* ''Synopsis'': A collection of fun side stories and adventures shared by our favorite RWBY characters.
[=[[reviews:Surf and Turf]]=]

''[[ Of Monsters and Artifacts]]'' by [[ XD-W-O-L-F-I-E]]
* Recommended by Trogdor7620
* ''Synopsis'': Headmaster Ozpin and Glynda Goodwitch have found a potentially powerful artefact in the Emerald Forest. When brought to Beacon Academy, the students are clueless as to what this artifact, the luminescent, could mean to its holder. The students go about their not-so-regular life, unaware of what sort of trouble is caused by the Luminescent, and its brothers, the Shining Artifacts.
[=[[reviews:Of Monsters And Artifacts]]=]

''[[ Jaune Arc: Hero of Vytal]]'' by [[ Kartofel von Kouch]] (Also has a [[ Spacebattles mirror]] that updates in chapter sections before the FFN version.)
* Recommended by Malchus
* ''Synopsis'': Being from a family of heroes, Jaune had long ago realized that heroism wasn't all it was cracked up to be. It was just plain sense to take a safer course in life. Unfortunately, nobody bothered to tell him that the world just didn't make sense. Inspired by the Literature/CiaphasCain series of Warhammer 40K.
* ''Comments'': While based on the Ciaphas Cain books, the author does not ape the series and eschews the first-person biographical style for a third-person style with alternating character [=POVs=], getting into the mind of each. Has an interesting take on Jaune in that while outwardly he acts very close to his canon self, inwardly he, like Cain, schemes for a way to keep from getting into trouble (and fails due to rotten luck).
[=[[reviews:Jaune Arc: Hero of Vytal]]=]

''[[ Hero of the Everyman]]'' by [[ The hotdog man]]
* Recommended by Tropers/{{omegaman}}
* ''Synopsis'': What does it take to be a hero? What must one give up in order to defend others? What does one gain? What if you don't have the same advantages as everyone else? Jaune will have to find out whether he wants to or not. Jaune/Weiss.
* ''Comments'': A AU in featuring Jaune in what is already a FandomSpecificPlot (Jaune is/becomes a {{Badass}}), and in which becomes Weiss’ partner. What distinguishes this fanfic is how well it is written. The author puts considerable time and care in crafting his alternate-Jaune and Jaune and Weiss’ interactions. A few spelling errors here and there, but very minor. Due note though, that due to Jaune's altered circumstances he's not that similar to his canon self, but he's not ''completely'' different either.

''[[ Pheremone Dust]]'' by [[ You are right... NOT]]
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Trogdor7620}}, bluedragonx
* ''Synopsis'': Roman attacks a street vendor who sells a special variety of dust, the only problem aside from the robbery? the special dust is spilled directly on Jaune as he fends off Roman's attack. Little did Jaune know how much of problem this would be.
* ''Comments'': Basically, Jaune gets covered in some special Dust that makes every girl in Beacon go crazy for him... including RWBY, Nora, Velvet, and a couple of OCs. If you like watching Jaune suffer, you're bound to get a laugh. A few grammatical issues, but it's still legible.

''[[ Zodiac]]'' by [[ inkbender]]
* Recommended by throwaawy, Whistle9
* ''Synopsis'': If the RWBY characters were all faunus… AU in which a certain Jaune Arc fakes his transcript to gain admission into an all-faunus battle school - except he's the only human being in all of Menagerie. With his luck, it doesn't take long before he's embroiled within all their petty school politics. Which may or may not be related to all those unplanned panty shots.

''[[ Wrath of the Scorned]]'' by [[ DreamADreamOfEndlessNight]]
* Recommended by EpicParagonOfManliness}}
* ''Synopsis'': When Ruby is forcibly taken as a bride by one of the Princes of the Cesartvo Empire, she is thrust into an alien world where might makes right and plots are around every corner. Literally less than a slave in this new realm, Ruby must utilize all her cunning to simply survive. WARNING: Contains brutal rape and torture. RWBY AU.
* ''Comments'': Interesting take on a completely off-tangent direction. We haven't really seen anything so far but the quality of the writing, though not perfect, is promising.
[=[[reviews:Wrath of the Scorned]]=]

''[[ Dreamscapes of Roses]]'' by [[ Mrfipp]]
* Recommended by {{@/nightelf37}}
* ''Synopsis'': Ruby goes on the adventure of her dreams, in perhaps a more literal sense of the term.
[=[[reviews:Dreamscapes of Roses]]=]

''[[ A Fairy Tale of the Huntsman]]'' by [[ Daniel K English]]
* Recommended by Hooba Dooba
* ''Synopsis'': Huntsman Jupiter Valkyrie awakens in his old home to see his long-dead family alive. He is a changed man, desperately seeking to fix his mistakes and alleviate his regrets. But not everything was meant to be "fixed." While stranded in the past, Jupiter quickly discovers his worst opponents yet: the inescapable concept of fate... and himself.
* ''Comments'': The main character is an OC from an alternate universe timeline who finds himself back in the past shortly before the first day at Beacon, in a 17-year-old body with all of his original memories, skill, strength, and wounds. Instead of simply trying to set things right, he attempts to do so in addition to searching for a way home...
* Currently undergoing a rewrite.

''[[ Soulbound]]'' by [[ xT-Zealot]]
* Recommended by Kaiserpluto, [=LastNobody=], bluedragonx
* ''Synopsis'': "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." [Pseudo-Novelization]
* ''Tags'': [=BlakexYang=]
* ''Comments'': A brilliant story exploring faunus human relation, about bonds with people and the way they handle Ruby/Weiss and Blake/Yang was done beautifully. a good piece of Pseudo-Novelization.

''[[ Remembrance Embers]]'' by [[ TheClonesLegacy]]
* Recommended by EmperorKlonen
* ''Synopsis'':Ten years after Beacon fell, the world has become under the control of The Cleric Foundation, an old organization from Remnants dark past. Team RWBY rejoin to not only free the world from The Cleric Foundation. But also must free themselves of their past mistakes. RWBY Cyberpunk AU, Rated M.
* ''Comments'': This story has some pacing problems, but overall is an enjoyable ride so far, with the author promising an entire trilogy. There is also a Prequel of anthology stories that the author is allowing people to contribute too.

''[[ Tensile Strength of the Soul]]'' by [[ Person With Many Aliases]]
* Recommended by Tikigod784
* ''Synopsis'':There were once three children. One looked at the ground and hated the world. One looked at the stars and hated herself. One looked forward and hated her past. Then one day, they looked at each other. Slight AU, Rated T.
* ''Comments'': The story has good action, an interesting premise, and presents an interesting, if AU, interpretation of certain characters' backgrounds. See if you can spot the Metal Gear Rising reference.
[=[[reviews:Tensile Strength of the Soul]]=]

''[[ A Light in the Dark]]'', by [[ kingxana0]]
* Recommended by Lurkerking
* ''Synopsis:'' Cinder Fall is a young huntress who has recently been accepted into the world famous Beacon Academy, a school that will train her to fight the evil forces of the Grimm. Of course with the evil Blood Rose family, lead by the evil crime boss Ruby Rose taking action from the shadows who knows how she will survive.
* ''Tags:'' AU
* ''Comments'': Enjoyable, through it is only recently coming into its own as an AU, the first chapters are a bit too close too the main story, almost to the point of copying.

''[[ The Power of Dust]]'', by [[ StorSpeaker]]
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Trogdor7620}}
* ''Synopsis:'' While on a school trip to a new dig site. Jerry, a dorky sixteen year old finds a crystal filled with Dust, with a capital 'D'. His body-filled power makes him a target from a criminal, and the people who can save Jerry belong in a world that shouldn't be real. These people are 'Team RWBY'. Trust me; this isn't your typical OC story. [[note]]Not an opinion, that is literally what is written.[[/note]]
* ''Comments:'' This story was actually inspired by [[Tropers/{{Trogdor7620}} my]] own fanfiction, Fanfic/RWBYReckoning, and he messaged me for some advice on how to write it. So far, a very immersive and enjoyable story, with really unique characters. Overall, it's a story that is really coming into it's own, and is up there with writing.

''[[ Flip-Flopped: JNPR AU]]'' by [[ thehemingwaydilemma]]
* Recommended by [=LastNobody=]
* ''Synopsis'': AU where Pyrrha and Jaune were the childhood friends, and Ren and Nora the complete strangers.
* ''Comments'': An interesting AU concept, and the writing depicts the characters pretty well.

''[[ Mute Arc]]'' by [[ destinyTail0]]
* Recommended by [=Psyner=]
* ''Synopsis'': What if Jaune Arc can't talk?
* ''Comments'': An extremely interesting and heartwarming read about Jaune's interactions with the rest of team RWBY and JNPR. I highly recommend this great read. Word of warning though the chapters are extremely long.

''[[ Weiss Reacts]]'' by [[ ElfCollaborator]]
* Recommended by Skybrigadier, fseftr
* ''Synopsis'': Our loveable heiress reacts to various fanfictions and the tropes within them.
* ''Tags'': AU, Parody, Crossover, Crack, OOC
* ''Comments'': Essentially, what happens when Weiss gets her hands on fanfiction and has to deal with just about everyone else being completely insane. The scope of the fic gradually expands to general tropes like Beach Episodes and genderbending, other things like video games; One chapter even covered [=TvTropes=] itself, referencing the Trope Pantheons. It also often features actual fics the writer deems worthy of attention. Word of warning, though; the fic is 70 chapters long and counting and the author doesn't seem to be set to stop anytime soon.
* Now has a trope page [[Fanfic/WeissReacts here]].

''[[ The Shadow of Fire]]'' by [[ Dagger of Faith]]
* Recommended by Skybrigadier
* ''Synopsis'': Team RWBY has a target painted on its back as a crack of a sniper rifle sends the team spiraling into chaos. When Weiss meets a strange yet powerful man, also seeking the same goal of vengeance, will the orders of Fate and Light prevail? Can Weiss halt the series of events that could crush the very foundation of their home, or is Vale doomed to eternal Darkness?
* ''Comments'': A thrilling read that begins with the RWBY cast being caught in a mundane assasination plot that quickly escalates into a war upon god-like figures. Word of warning: the story does pair together Ruby and Weiss fairly early, in case it isn't your cup of tea.

''[[ Those Silver Eyes]]'' by [[ OldSchoolVinny]]
* Recommended by [=LastNobody=]
* ''Synopsis'': Eight years ago, Ozpin made the biggest mistake of his life. One that cost the life of a great huntress, and another huntress' faith in humanity.
* ''Tags'': Prequel, Character death
* ''Comments'': A fantastic fic that manages to be surprising and heart-wrenching even though its events are a ForegoneConclusion. It also gives brief appearances to Team RWBY when they were younger, giving an idea of how they'll grow up to be who they are in the series proper.

'' [[ Four Deadly Secrets]] '' by [[ OneirosTheWriter]]
* Recommended by Leviticus Wilkes
* ''Synopsis'': A darker take on the girls of RWBY and the world of Remnant. The girls of RWBY have deadly secrets that they'd do anything to protect. Whether what they have done to get to Beacon, or their reasons for starting over at the Academy, their pasts are catching up to them. The Malachite twins have enrolled to salvage their careers, and what they know will cause everything to begin unravelling. WhiteRose v Ruby/Miltia triangle, Bumblebee.
* ''Tags'': AU, Dark
* ''Comments'': A long, well planned Fanfic that seems ready to take the girls to very dark places. Inventive and intelligent, this story is worth reading if only for the unique pairing it provides and the deep and complex character arcs.

''[[ Yet Another Weiss Christmas Story]]'' by [[ G.N Over-Kite]]
* ''Recommended by'': Skybrigadier
* ''Synopsis'': The Longest Christmas RWBY Story! Join the girls and many others as they try to make this holiday their own! Moody, lovestricken heiresses, meddling sisters and students, incredibly vivid dreams, and family drama! As a simple cry for love snowballs into something incomprehensible for one Weiss Schnee, everyone must be ready to face the cold reception surrounding a blooming rose!
* ''Tags'': White Rose, AU
* ''Comments'': Despite the author's constant jokes about overrunning till next Christmas, the fic itself is a fantastic White Rose fanfic that shows the emotional development of Weiss as she gradually opens up and finally accepts Ruby in a romantic relationship. Despite several pacing issues, the fic remains an enjoyable read and the plot manages to keep people begging for more.

Set after Dream Drop Distance (KH) and after Season 1 (RWBY).

''[[ Pieces out of Line]]'' by [[ Wrathie Winsre]]
* Recommended by Skybrigadier
* ''Synopsis'': Crossover with ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''. A new piece could change so many things, but the same applies for pieces that could be aligned better as well. The world of RWBY with small, but major changes that would change their world as we know it. An AU Crossover fic.

''[[Fanfic/RyuugisTheGamesWePlay The Games We Play]]'' by Ryuugi
* Recommended by @/GentlemensDame883 and Psyner
* ''Synopsis'': Crossover with ''Webcomic/TheGamer''. After getting rejected from Signal again, Jaune becomes a Gamer, with all the RPGMechanicsVerse shenanigans you might expect from that, and his life takes an unwanted turn when he accidentally gets himself involved with the White Fang. Pre-series, slightly AU-ish.
* ''Comments'': A really pleasant read. You feel a level of emotional investment you find rarely in other fanfics. I recommend this to anyone who wants a fresh perspective on Jaune Arc.
