This fanfic provides examples of:

  • Alternate Universe Fic: The story takes place on Remnant, but it's an altered version of it. Beacon is a college instead of a huntsman academy and the SDC is involved with fashion instead of dust.
  • Dead Fic: The story hasn't updated since October 2018.
  • Does Not Like Spam: Subverted. Ruby's hatred of tuna is a hatred of the fish itself, not a distaste towards its meat. She had a traumatic encounter with a tuna as a child.
  • Every Scar Has a Story: Weiss received a scar to her eye when someone attacked her because her family's company abuses their faunus workers.
  • Trans Nature: Weiss is a human who identifies as a cat faunus.
