** "Red Like Roses" Anthology has several Ruby/Weiss moments:
*** Another comic has Weiss getting angry with Ruby after she got their team's roaming privileges revoked for getting in a fight with Cardin. When she runs into Cardin in the halls, she discovers Ruby only fought him in the first place because he'd insulted Weiss' scar; which she very nearly does again when he does so to her face. Weiss calms her down, forgiving her and thanking her for her friendship; gifting her a handkerchief she used to wipe her tears when she got emotional.

Weiss calms her down, forgiving her and thanking her for her friendship; gifting her a handkerchief she used to wipe her tears when she got emotional.


*** One comic has Ruby decide that, in the vein of many adventure heroes, she needs a love interest. After dismissing every guy in Beacon for one reason or another, she teases Weiss about being jealous and even starts to flirt with her. She even holds her chin up and leans close to her, all while puckering her lips.
*** In another comic, Mercury gets Ruby to dance with him at a party, who is clearly uncomfortable with his advances. A disgusted Weiss pushes him away, and Ruby comments how she's kind of a "knight in shining armor". As they're leaving the party, Weiss echoes Ruby's own thoughts about how she'd rather be studying or practicing than attending the party, leading her to comment that she's glad they're partners.



*** In one gag comic strip, Ruby starts referring to her teammates as "Sister" (Yang), "Friend" (Blake), and she gives Weiss the title of "Wife". This makes Weiss blush, and a confused Ruby asks, "Why are you blushing?!"



*** The idea of Ruby being the one to help Weiss break out of her lonely shell gets repeated in several comics throughout the book. Another has her sulking over feeling inferior to her sister after not making team leader, only to realize how ridiculous her line of thinking was just seeing Ruby smile. When Ruby offers to make her coffee like she had for her, there's even a visual of two mugs arranged like a heart.



*** Going to do some training on her own after thinking her teammates are slacking leading up to the Vytal Festival, Weiss winds up sulking as she wonders if they're really coming together as a team. When she spots Team JNPR walking by, she briefly imagines her team as a pair of couples like they are, blushing at the thought.



* HypeBacklash: While the anthologies generally received positive reception many are still wary of the canonicity of the anthologies because of the various retcons and contradictions that are present. Some are also quick to point out how they notice that the [[WishFulfillment artists bias]] are [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation affecting some of the characters]] canon portrayal, in some instances, for the sake of [[ShipTease their favored pairings]].

* AuthorsSavingThrow: WordOfGod stated that working with the artist to make the anthologies was another good way to show character interactions and other parts of the RWBY world that they didnít have time to cover in the show. We see instances of this explored in how Ruby and Blake get more character interaction with eachother which was something that was lacking in the original volumes.

** "Mirror Mirror" Anthology has several Weiss/Ruby moments:
*** The very first comic has Weiss finishing up a study session, when Ruby appears to offer to share some cookies she'd made. Weiss reflects on how lonely her life was before coming to Beacon, and how Ruby changed that, before offering to make them both coffee. When she deduces that Ruby hadn't finished her homework, she then offers to help while the two eat.
*** The idea of Ruby being the one to help Weiss break out of her lonely shell gets repeated in several comics throughout the book. Another has her sulking over feeling inferior to her sister after not making team leader, only to realize how ridiculous her line of thinking was just seeing Ruby smile. When Ruby offers to make her coffee like she had for her, there's even a visual of two mugs arranged like a heart.
*** Another comic in this vein sees Weiss spend the day in a daze after having a nightmare about returning to her old, lonely life. She snaps out of it when Ruby talks to her and reassures her that she's not alone, even in that very moment.
*** In a comic where Weiss has to skip class after falling ill, Ruby at first tries to skip too, to keep her company, but gets dragged to class anyway. When Weiss falls asleep and has a dream about how Winter used to keep her from being lonely when she fell sick before, she wakes up to find that Ruby had returned to stay by her bedside. While Ruby offers to read her a story, Weiss thinks about how she thought she wanted to be alone, but that maybe she really did want her close.
*** The second comic has Weiss harshly turning down a guy trying to ask her out, meeting up with Ruby instead. When she muses on how much she hates the nickname "Princess", which even Ruby had called her, because of how she thinks it focuses more on her wealthy family than herself. Ruby responds by telling her she'd think of her as a princess, even if she weren't a Schnee.
*** When Ruby and Weiss see Velvet being bullied by Cardin while studying, Weiss rushes to save her after she gets knocked out a window, getting a bit beat-up in the process. Afterwards, Ruby bandages her, telling her how cool she was and how proud she is to have her as a teammate.
*** Going to do some training on her own after thinking her teammates are slacking leading up to the Vytal Festival, Weiss winds up sulking as she wonders if they're really coming together as a team. When she spots Team JNPR walking by, she briefly imagines her team as a pair of couples like they are, blushing at the thought.
*** In a sequence of 4koma strips, Weiss denies being Ruby's "BFF", yet the thought gets so stuck in her head she winds up thinking about it all night long.
*** In a comic where Yang and Blake grow suspicious of Weiss sneaking out at night, thinking she might be seeing someone in secret, it's revealed that she was actually going out to train Zwei. Ruby then reveals that she knew what was going on the whole time because ''obviously'' she knew that Weiss didn't have a boyfriend.

* ShipSinking: This is the case for Freezerburn, the pairing of Weiss and Yang, as Yang confides in Weiss that she sees her as [[FamilyOfChoice another lively sister]]. The feeling is also mutual on Wiess's part as in the show, Weiss all but confirms with Yang that [[TrueCompanions she views Team RWBY]], as [[FamilyOfChoice more of a family]] more than her own brother and father.

* {{Tearjerker}}: One story that goes deeper into Yangís past. First, thereís her waiting outside Taiís door as he grieves, and then her anger about how her life is, with her birth mother leaving and her stepmother dying. Keep in mind Yang looks barely ten years old in the story, and has already dealt with all this turmoil.
