''[[ knives4cash]]''
* Recommended by Insano, Mcnickel, Tropers/{{Zelenal}}, Colincaelin
* knives4cash is a pleasure to read when it comes to one-shot shipping and friendship for the White Rose and Bumblebee pairings. With over fifty 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
* One of the more prolific writers of the RWBY fandom, Hana makes a point of updating weekly at a minimum, often on what she calls RWBY Tuesdays. Her works run the gambit from uplifting fluff to crushing angst, and while a large number of her works are one-shots, her series, especially [[ Gold]], are very well-received.

''[[ CodyKnight22]]''
* Recommended by Colincaelin
* Apart from his own stories, he is most notable for his [[ Cody Talks Fandom]] youtube series, which features several interviews with RWBY cosplayers, game makers, and fanfic writers among the RWBY fandom. There is also his Cody Talks Fanfic series, which focuses on notable fics within the fandom.

''[[ Dinas Emrys]]'', also known as [[ RedSuitWriter]]
* Recommended by Colincaelin
* A writer who focuses primarily on action-heavy romance, however, he has a preference for longer-length series over one-shots. Good work, although he tends to run multiple series at the same time and has longer waits between updates. As of writing, his ''[[ Premium Well Redux]]'' is the highest-rated story in the RWBY section of Website/ArchiveOfOurOwn. His Vigilante AU series also includes a Prequel episode written by knives4cash featured above, and he is a writer on the ''VisualNovel/SummerRoseCourt'' project.

''[[ God Emperor Penguin]]''
* Recommended by [=LadWatcher=]
* God Emperor Penguin is known for being one of the most, if not the most, bizarre fanfiction writers of RWBY. His works are mostly shipping fics involving Jaune and a random female character. The quality of his works is very good and it never fails to entertain, however, he has a tendency for writing endings that readers have described as completely disappointing such as how it was done in ''[[ Betrothed]]'' thus earning him the title of troll. His account is shared by other two writers, one of them is also a RWBY fanfiction writer who is the author of ''[[ Inch]]'' (described below).

''[[ CourierNinetyTwo]]/[[ TheIvoryTowerCrumbles]]''
* Recommended by [=SkyrimForTheElves=]
* One of the best romantic writers in the fandom, their Mafia AU is generally regarded as one of the best [=AUs=] created thus far.

''[[ Yashkonu]]''
* Recommended by [=SkyrimForTheElves=]
* A wonderful humor and romance writer who writes for multiple pairings. They've also written more serious works.

''[[ Xekstrin]]''
* Recommended by[= SkyrimForTheElves=]
* One of the writers on ''VisualNovel/SummerRoseCourt'', one of the highest regarded smut writers in the FNDM, the namer of the 'Enabler' ship, and an incredible writer who has also done PG romance. Highly recommended.

''[[ Linira]]/[[ ChickenGums]]'' ''[[ ( link)]]''
* Recommended by[= PunslingerYang=]
* An exceptional humor and romance writer. They've written many different pairings, and they've also written some very good angst, as well as a few more dirty works. Of particular note are ''[[ Miscommunication]]'', a monochrome angst piece, ''[[ Off the Tracks]]'', which is bumbleby romance/humor, and ''[[ The Team Furnace]]'', which is a good teamwide humor fic that seems to be shaping up into Bee's Schnees.

''Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.''

'[[ Grimm Heir]]'' by [[ DeadRich18]]
* ''Recommended by'': miner249er
* ''Status'': Ongoing''
* ''Synopsis'': It has lived since the beginning. Since before the Dust settled on the world, bringing forth man. It has brought forth countless monsters to combat man and his creations in an attempt to annihilate him completely. But as the years pass, man becomes stronger and wiser, he becomes able to fend off its monsters. And now the creator comes to a realization. It needs an heir.
* ''Comments'':
** A story where the author does something different and writes a story that mainly focus on the Grimm, the author does a great job in writing/characterizing the Grimm as well as creating Original Characters for the story.
* ''Tags'': OriginalCharacter, DarkFic, BloodierAndGorier

''[[ Redemption]]'' by [[ RainStorm4]]
* ''Recommended by'': [=LadyRochester=], enderheisenberg
* ''Status'': Ongoing, post-''Breach''
* ''Synopsis'': RWBY, told through the eyes of Russel Thrush and his team. Friendship, drama, (hopefully) some humour to build up some characters with a lot of potential who, at the moment in the show, are fairly 2D. CRDL-centric, but with plenty of interaction with the other teams. Russel/Yang ultimately.
* ''Comments'':
** A well-written fic, told through the eyes of a snarky and complicated Russel Thrush, that fleshes out these characters and explains a lot of plot holes in the first Volume. CRDL becomes actually sympathetic and likeable, and the romantic subplot is surprisingly believable without detracting from the story. Short characters with frequent updates.
** This is how fleshing out is done. Believable humor, innovative relationship writing and a good look at what Jaune have done wrong.

''[[ Harrow to Zion]]'' by [[ Starspike7]]
* ''Recommended by'': Raptor343
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Synopsis'': Tawn has found a reason to live after fourteen years of nothing. He wants power, he wants family, and most importantly he wants to know why he was only told of his mother's death instead of seeing a body. In the midst of it all, a man is stealing semblances and marked him as a target.
An OC fic different from the norm.

''[[ Hypnotherapy]]'' by [[ zelkova48]]
* ''Recommended by'': Juny23
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Synopsis'': In an attempt to raise Jaune's low self-esteem, Pyrrha and Ruby employ an unorthodox method: hypnotism. Shockingly, the hypnosis works, and Jaune is now the very picture of confidence. Although, he is acting a little stranger than usual, but it shouldn't be anything too serious, right?

''[[ [=MRLD=]]]'' by [[ Firehawk242]]
* ''Recommended by'': XCVG
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Synopsis'': Ten years after the start of RWBY, Kevin Malder attends Beacon Academy. It's been three years since he arrived on Remnant, and he's still trying to find a way home.
* ''Comments'': Starts off quite rough, but gets a lot better. Avoids many of the traps that similar fics fall into. Short chapters, but frequent updates.
* ''Tags'': OriginalCharacter

''[[ Dirge Without Music]]'' by [[ Arashi-Leonhart]]
* ''Recommended by'': Tikigod784, Mcnickel
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Rest in peace, Monty Oum. Ruby is not resigned. More precious was the light in your eyes than all the roses in the world.
* ''Comments'': A tribute piece for Monty Oum, the show's creator. Thematically fantastic.

''[[ Break A Leg]]'' by [[ Drake S. Hellion]]
* ''Recommended by'': Skatepunk

''[[ Songs and Comforts]]'' by [[ H'te Rarpee]]
* ''Recommended by'': ultimomant, bluedragonx
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Jaune finds himself on the roof in a state of melancholy, so he decides to sing for the first time in years.
[=[[reviews:Songs and Comforts]]=]

''[[ RWBY: Resolve]]'' by [[ PrognisAldiev]]
* ''Recommended by'': Tropers/GreenGoblin
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Synopsis'': Beacon has had its share of extraordinary new students as of late, but one more is about to be accepted in that trumps them all in just how unusual he is. Those learning at the academy will soon find that sometimes your peers can teach you lessons as well… and that the most sinister plans can be hidden.
* ''Comments'': Despite the somewhat vague summary, the story itself is a well written (both in terms of content and grammar) and interesting ride. The plot runs parallel to the series canon and the author has made it a point to make sure that the events of the main plot don't change for the most part, with only slight alterations when they do. Mind you, this doesn't mean the OC characters don't interact with the main cast, they do, but they're all well done and add depth to the main plot. You could easily see this story with its characters existing in RWBY canon. It even has its own side story called ''[[ XTRA: Resolve]]'', which covers material not seen in the main fic, at least, for the most part. The characters are great, have their own lives, and while the focus is on the protagonist, we still learn about them as well. Easily one of the best RWBY OC stories out there, I can't recommend it enough.
[=[[reviews:RWBY: Resolve]]=]

''Fanfic/{{Emergence}}'' by [[ Chris7221]]/[[ XCVG]]
* ''Recommended by'': mysterius, [=MrLZRS=]

Arriving at different times and in different places, with no idea where they are or how they got here, can they adapt to this new world and reunite with their teammates?

[=[[reviews:Rage, Weep, Bleed, Yird]]=]

''[[ I, Jaune]]'' by [[ Hallucinia]]
* Recommended by Tropers/HeavenSmiles
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Synopsis'': Part 1 of a semi-AU world focusing on a half-crippled Jaune as he tries to navigate the dangerous power politics of Vale and survive his time at Beacon. Even as his massively powerful family who thinks he's betrayed them guns for him.
[=[[reviews:I, Jaune]]=]

''[[ Hunting Monsters]]'' by [[ Vingilot the Sky Ship]]
* Recommended by Tdwally
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Synopsis'': This mission was beginning to grate on Sanguin's nerves. Hunting phantoms was trouble enough, doing it while navigating the minefield that was the tense relations between Umbra and Beacon academies was just needlessly stressful. And he didn't care how skilled this 'Team RWBY' thought they were, if those rookies kept butting in some of them were bound to end up dead.

* ''Status'': Canceled, author released summary of intended ending.
* ''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.

''[[ Massages:mjnousak vesion]]'' by [[ Mjnousak]]
* Recommended by Shipsetter
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Yang's back is sore, so Jaune gives her a massage. Hilarity ensues. Retelling of the [[ Massages]]'' by [[ H'te Rarpee]].
* ''Comments'': Has a much more SliceofLife feel to it than the original without the UnwantedHarem.

''[[ Various Vytal Ventures]]'' by [[ Rassilon001]]
* Recommended by ultimomant, bluedragonx, Contributor
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Synopsis'': A collection of fun side stories and adventures shared by our favorite RWBY characters. Each chapter can be read as a stand alone story in its own right.
* [[FanFic/VariousVytalVentures Now has It's Own Tropes Page]]
[=[[reviews:Various Vytal Ventures]]=]

''[[ 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
* ''Status'': Dormant.
* ''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]]=]

''[[ Pheremone Dust]]'' by [[ You are right... NOT]]
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Trogdor7620}}, bluedragonx
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''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.
[=[[reviews:Pheremone Dust]]=]

''[[ Zodiac]]'' by [[ inkbender]]
* Recommended by throwaawy, Whistle9
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''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
* ''Status'': Dormant
* ''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.
* ''Tags'': DarkFic, AlternateUniverseFic
* ''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}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Ruby goes on the adventure of her dreams, in perhaps a more literal sense of the term.

''[[ Remembrance Embers]]'' by [[ TheClonesLegacy]]

* ''Tags'': CyberPunk AlternateUniverseFic
* ''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
* ''Status'': Dormant
* ''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
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''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'': AlternateUniverseFic
* ''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}}
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''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]]
* ''Tags'': AlternateUniverseFic
* ''Comments:'' This story was inspired by Tropers/{{Trogdor7620}}'s ''Fanfic/RWBYReckoning''. 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.

''[[ Mute Arc]]'' by [[ destinyTail0]]
* Recommended by [=Psyner=]
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''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 very long, with an average of 12,000 words each.
[=[[reviews:Mute Arc]]=]

''Fanfic/WeissReacts'' by [[ ElfCollaborator]]
* Recommended by Skybrigadier, fseftr, Tropers/{{Zelenal}}, Contributor
* ''Status'': Volume 1 and 2 complete, Volume 3 ongoing
* ''Pairings'': Ruby/Weiss (White Rose)
* ''Synopsis'': Our loveable heiress reacts to various fanfictions and the tropes within them.
* ''Tags'': AlternateUniverseFic, AffectionateParody, CrackFic, OutOfCharacter
* ''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 this very wiki, 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.
[=[[reviews:Weiss Reacts]]=]

''[[ The Shadow of Fire]]'' by [[ Dagger of Faith]]
* Recommended by Skybrigadier
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Pairings'': Ruby/Weiss (White Rose), Blake/Yang (Bumblebee)
* ''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 assassination 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.
[=[[reviews:The Shadow of Fire]]=]

''[[ Those Silver Eyes]]'' by [[ OldSchoolVinny]]
* Recommended by Contributor
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''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.
* ''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.

''FanFic/FourDeadlySecrets'' by [[ OneirosTheWriter]]
* Recommended by Leviticus Wilkes, The23rd, Arrowstorm, Dame-Amaryllis
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Pairings'': Ruby/Weiss (White Rose), Blake/Yang (Bumblebee)
* ''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 unraveling. White Rose v Ruby/Miltia triangle, Bumblebee.
* ''Tags'': AlternateUniverseFic, DarkFic
* ''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.

''[[ The Gentle Art of Making Enemies]]'' by [[ feistyslapofpain]]
* Recommended by kadeyrn, Person With Many Aliases, Mcnickel
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Pairings'': Ruby/Weiss/Blake, Weiss/Blake/Yang, Jaune/Pyrrha, Ren/Nora
* ''Synopsis'': In which Blake is perfectly natural, Weiss gets ice cream in her hair, and Ruby and Yang would have to be really, really drunk.
* ''Tags'': {{Continuation}}
* ''Note'': A continuation of Volume 1, written before Volume 2. Worth recommending on the quality of the primary relationship alone (Pollination, aka team RWBY OT4), the characterization and interaction of the cast is definitely the star of the show. It's also consistently funny and mostly lighthearted, though there is occasional mood whiplash into some fairly bleak territory. Also be advised about more risque scenes. Hormonal teenage girls, they are, even if written with care.

''[[ Rebellion: The Fallout of the Second Human-Faunus War]]'' by [[ Coolheadluke]]
* Recommended by ultimomant, denguyen246
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Synopsis'': Alternate Universe. Five years ago, the White Fang triggered a second Human-Faunus War. The Faunus lost and were all enslaved. One day, Velvet Scarlatina is sold to Jaune Arc, son of the legendary general who led the humans to victory. To her surprise, he is kind, generous... and a member of a group working to bring down the current social order.
* ''Tags'': Rated M for themes, not graphic violence.

''[[ Balthazar of the BLAC]]'' by [[ desoldeben]]
* Recommended by Whistle9
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Synopsis'': Balthazar is no hero. He has no godlike powers or skills. He has no secret past. He's nobody noteworthy. He had been an orphan, a poor street boy and finally a thief. But now, he won't even stay a thief anymore. He is going to become something infinitely tougher: a student in Beacon. Parallel to Team RWBY storyline.
* ''Comments'': One of the better RWBY OC fics, it breaks the norm by following the original characters on their own story rather then just having them tag along with Teams RWBY and JNPR. The original characters are entertaining, and the canon characters are used well without having them take over the plot. A few grammatical errors do not detract from this entertaining read.

A young and kinesics-gifted Ruby Rose wants to become a symbol of Hope in a world where monsters of Grimm are evolving and the kingdom of Vale lies isolated. But lies and violence corrupt the relationship between humans and Fauna and soon, she will have to make a choice. How far can you go?
* ''Tags'': AlternateUniverseFic, DarkFic, {{Lemon}}, OriginalCharacter
* ''Comments'': Currently sitting at 526,204 words at the time of this review and still ongoing. This is one of the longest and arguably one of the best, RWBY fics out there. Characterizations are spot on, the drama is heavy and engaging, and featuring some of the best written original characters I have even seen. The plot is thick and rather convoluted at the moment, but the author promises everything will eventually make sense in the long run. As the title states, [[GreyAndGrayMorality gray morality]] is a constant theme in this fic.

With a dark history and many enemies, Ike attempts to leave his past life with hopes to have a brighter future. Will he be able to do it? Or will past enemies and abandoned friends stop him from reaching his happy ending?
* ''Notes'': While the writing isn't the best, the story is still well done. The author does a good job of mixing his own OC into the story, while keeping with the canon. The story does stray away from the canon but the non-canon parts are interesting. Overall, the story is interesting enough to overlook the spelling and grammar errors. The author also connects with his readers well and includes the readers in the direction of the story.

''[[ Professor Arc]]'' by [[ Coeur Al'Aran]]
* ''Recommended by'': Sithking Zero

* ''Synopsis'': 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! "This can't be too hard right... heh... who am I kidding, I'm screwed."
** Jaune fakes his transcripts... but this time they're ''too'' good and he gets hired as a teacher. By the same author as "One Good Turn Deserves Another" further down this page, a humorous fic about Jaune's misadventures as a teacher of Beacon.
** Since the rec was made, this fic has drawn enough attention that it has people trying their own hand at Professor Arc fics, including [[ Professor Arc: Staffroom Chronicles]], by the author (a series of canon humorous side stories), [[ Professor Arc Omakes]] by Sithking Zero (a collection of non-canon humorous stories), [[ Intensive Counseling]] by The Spookiest Of Noodles (a rule 34 story where his students seduce the Professor), and [[ Great Professor Arc]] by [[=ImSoAwesome=]], which is an AU of the main story in which Jaune is given an actual teaching position instead of being made a support teacher.

''WebVideo/RWBYTheAbridgedSeries'' by ''[[ RWBY: The Abridged Series]]''
* ''Recommended by'': Maiko2853
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Synopsis'': Basically an Abridged Series comedy where most of the characters have different personalities.
* ''Comments'': [[SturgeonsLaw You know how some abridged series start out slow]]? Well RWBY The Abridged series manages to be good right from the start. I'll admit, the first episode is a little clunky and sometimes the voices and sound effects don't sound quite right, but for the most part they manage to do a job well done. Most of the characters are hilariously dark and manages to be really entertaining because of it. The jokes might turn you off if you're not into black comedy or just think the jokes are in poor taste. But I'm confident this series will at least give a few chuckles to most that choose to view it.

''[[ Magical Girl Glitter Glynda-Chan!]]'' by Half-Blind Otaku
* Recommended by fruitstripegum
* ''Synopsis'': Join Magical Girl Glynda Goodwitch as she fights for Truth, Justice, and a frilly dress! Beyond that... well, I'd say the title speaks for itself... Parody and Adventure, rated T for the reckless endangerment of minors by adorable Mascots, snarky story-book narration, and stress-induced pixie rage.

''[[ RWBY PI]]''
* Recommended by D3irdr3R33s
* ''Synopsis'': A sniper enthusiast, a fencing prodigy and heiress to a multi-billion lien company, a former member of the White Fang and a teen boxing champion come together to fight the corruption and crime lurking beneath Vale's shiny exterior. RWBY, Modern-AU. Rated M for safety.
* ''Comments'': Good story so far, and the author is attempting an... interesting update style. While there are grammar issues and, as the writer himself admits, some typo's, it is nothing too glaring or distracting from the story.

''[[ Immortal]]'' by [[ LaughingLefou]]
* ''Recommended by'': magictoaster
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Synopsis'': Jaune Arc hated dying. This is an odd state of being for one to state they hated, as dying happens only but once. Twice maybe if you're lucky. Then again, you aren't the universe's chew toy either...
* ''Comments'': This fic is hilarious. To give you an idea of what it's like, Jaune's semblance is the inability to die when he's killed. Oh, and Yang could be considered the straight man out of all the characters in the story.

''[[ The Commission]]'' by [=CV12Hornet=]
* Recommended by: Reads-By-Lamplight, Dame-Amaryllis, Justafan
* Status: Ongoing
* Synopsis: RWBY AU. At the flip of a coin... Right can become wrong... Light can turn to dark... And the mightiest of heroes... can become the greatest of villains.
* Comments: This is a great read and in spite, or maybe because of being an AU has some of the best RWBY internal interactions I've ever read. It also neatly avoids the pitfall of ANGST ANGST ANGST and manages to uphold the light tone of RWBY throughout the story.

''FanFic/RemnantsReclaimer'' by Hysterical Clerical Hijinks
* Recommended by: Cuda, EvilMaster, Dame-Amaryllis
* Status: Ongoing
* Synopsis: Ruby finds herself facing her end. As she pushes her semblance to new heights, the world breaks. In one fluid, crystallising moment everything changes. A 23 year old Ruby Rose, one of the deadliest hunters on Remnant, spills out of the void and into the dorm of team RWBY, including a 15 year old version of herself. A hunter in a world of unknowing prey.
* Pairing: Ruby/Blake (Ladybug), Weiss/Yang (Freezer Burn), Older!Ruby/Glynda (Hoodwitch)
* Comments: Time travel AU fic but done so incredibly well. Eight years of war has transformed Ruby (known in the fic as Rose) into a very complex, tragic and dangerous person. And also incredibly brazen, vulgar and horny, which thoroughly embarrasses her younger self and teammates along the way. All the characters are magnificently written and the world-building and plot is so detailed that it's awe-inspiring. This is a fic that would be good enough to be its own spinoff series.

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'': AlternateUniverseFic
* ''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.

''[[ Premium Well Redux]]'' by [[ Dinas Emrys]]
* ''Recommended by'': Colincaelin

* ''Tags'': {{Continuation}},
* ''Comments'': Rated Mature on Fanfic for themes, alcohol use, and canon-appropriate violence. Apart from a few pacing issues, the fic generally does a good job of sticking to canon-ish portrayals of the characters and expanding upon events within the show itself. Set several years in the future, to portray team RWBY as huntresses in their early twenties. Combat scenes are comparatively realistic and close to the in-universe fights and new weapon designs draw on updating historical mixes of melee weapons and firearms.

* ''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.

''[[ Hero of the Everyman]]'' by [[ The hotdog man]]

* ''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.

* ''Synopsis'': What if it was Nora that found Jaune in the Emerald Forest? Join our lovable members Nora and Jaune of Team JNPR as they partner up and set sail on the silliest adventure at their time at Beacon Academy!
* ''Comments'': The very first fanfic to DARE pair Jaune and [[ManicPixieDreamGirl Nora]] together, but pulled off so well it turns out to be NOTHING like a crack fic at all! True to form, you'll find yourself grinning from ear to ear from the very beginning at the antics of not only the ever lovable Nora, but the rest of the main eight; all while remaining completely believable and lifelike in its dialogue, detail, and consistency. That said, while Nora is still the epitome of wild randomness, simpleminded hyperactivity, and overwhelming energy, it also fleshes out her character, as she does get her moments. It's also a refreshing change from all the fics that try to turn Jaune into a badass from the get-go, designating him instead as the brains behind Nora's immense brawn. It's also one of the few to alter the beginning, with Nora being Jaune's partner due to a [[ForWantOfANail single small happenstance]], yet keep going with the dynamic of teams JNPR + RWBY as opposed to mixing it up. If you want a fun-filled, awesome, and lively story with our favorite ButtMonkey and Cloudcuckoolander, then this is the tale for you!

* ''Comments'': A at first shaky fan fic that closely follows the actual story with some deviations that becomes it's own story after the volume 2 finale, getting smoother as it goes along. It includes and gives time to almost all the characters in the show as of the mentioned finale and several OCs but still focuses on the growing love triangle between Jaune, Ruby, and Pyrrha. Although it is a romance, it is chalked full of fighting, gore, drama, Reality Ensues, and humor. After 130,000 words, it is now complete, but a sequel taking place in team RWBY's second year at Beacon follows in the same timeline.

* ''Synopsis'': 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.
* ''Comments'': An unlikely pairing that's played very realistically, yet at the same time, it's done in a way that's both well written and in-character.

''[[Fanfic/RyuugisTheGamesWePlay The Games We Play]]'' by Ryuugi

* ''Synopsis'': 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. Little does he know that this is far from the limit of how "fun" things are going to get. Starts off 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.

''FanFic/SoulHunter'' by [[ SkywalkerT-65]]
* Recommended by ultimomant
* Crossover with ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Synopsis'': When Ruby Rose went to Beacon Academy two years early, she had assumed she was going to be the odd one out. Her sister, the Ice Queen Heiress and the mysterious dark-haired girl aside. What she didn't expect, what none of them expected, was that an even more mysterious teenager would join them. One with a power no other Hunter or Huntress has...and one that just may turn the tide..
* ''Comments'': This is an AU version of Ichigo who moved to Remnant with his family as a child. As a result, he was trained solely by Isshin and there was no secrecy about his lineage, meaning he has access to his Shinigami, Hollow, and Quincy powers at the start. Despite this, the author works to make sure Ichigo is not overpowered and everybody contributes.

Stuck within a world of creatures beyond my imagining, of hunters and huntresses. I have to get out of here, finally recovered I can start over. I have to go, I have to find the way back.
* ''Comments'': An interesting take on the world of Remnant from the eyes of the Meta as he tries to figure out how to return back to the world of Machinima/RedVsBlue. There are two OC's on Cinder's factions. However, they are established characters from other series that keep their personality.

''FanFic/XCOMRWBYWithin'' by [[ DrAmishMD]]
* Recommended by Ttran2323, [=OldBen=]
* Crossover with ''VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown''
* ''Status'': Complete, with author planning a sequel
* ''Synopsis'': A strange anomaly causes the members of Team RWBY to find themselves in the midst of Earth's full-scale alien invasion with no way of returning to Remnant.
* ''Comments'': A beautifully written fanfic with amazing characterization and plot devices. Lovely take on what would happen if the Huntresses met XCOM and what would follow. Also combines elements from the ''[[VideoGame/XCOMLongWar Long War]]'' mod [[spoiler:and is going to incorporate Remnant technology soon]]. Updates every Friday.
** Seconding the recommendation. Fic is very well-written, characters from both sides are faithful to canon and greatly fleshed out, there are several impressive(if a bit controversial) plot twists, and there's a balance between action, drama and comedy. And thanks to well-done exposition, you don't even need to be [=XCOM=] fan to enjoy it - although it'll definitely help.
** [[FanFic/XCOMRWBYWithin Now it has its own page]] in need of some WikiMagic.

** I'm going to have to de-rec, on the grounds that the author needs to have less than one run on sentence a paragraph. There were many other problems, but that was a big one. -nate9799
