I just noticed that people are filling the Arc Fatigue section with nothing but Jaune.

We might have to rename that section Jaune Arc Fatigue.

Pollination = Bumblebee + White Rose.

Bees pollinate flowers, so pollination is a process that involves both bees and roses. I've... never heard the term before and it does kinda reek of a troper getting too clever but to be perfectly frank I don't have my ear to the ground on this fandom.

Pulled this before it got into an edit war:

  • Unfortunate Implications: The Faunus, the Token Minority group of the story, have recently begun to have a greater presence in the narrative. Their main outstanding feature is their being half-human and half-animal...but the only animals seen so far are the Grimm, pitch black demon-like creatures that are usually killed on sight. So, this raises a question of where the hybrid species came from.

Personally, I'm not certain what the Implications here are. Is it an implication of... bestiality? Except I never got the idea that Faunuses (fauni?) were Half-Human Hybrids in the sense they had a human parent and an animal parent, so much as just a separate species that's a Little Bit Beastly.

But how do you get that seperate species, especially with so many variants? Pretty much all examples of Little Bit Beastly are either a biological experiment or demons. The Grimm are the closest thing to demons we've got and we've yet to establish whether or not this world even has regular animals or the technology to bond animal and human DNA, let alone create an entire species for whatever reason.

So, it doesn't directly point to bestiality, and I hope I'm wrong, but right now it is an Unfortunate Implication.

That's meeting the implication more than halfway, I think. You're assuming (for some reason) the only reason that that a Little Bit Beastly are because of cross-breeding, rather than the idea that they're just, you know, a species (which is how they've been shown so far). And then you're assuming that the cross breeding must be with the Grimm even though we haven't seen any cat, monkey, or rabbit Grimm (let alone that they'd be compatible with human DNA). Not to mention, it's explicitly a fantastic setting. Any number of Aura or Dust-based explanations could exist.
