Still Running is a RWBY two-shot where Weiss chases after Blake when she runs away at the end of Volume 3. Unfortunately, Adam follows Weiss to Blake and this leads to a confrontation. After Adam is chased off by Qrow, Weiss and Blake come to terms with their feelings for one another.

Still Running is a part of a series called RWBY Redux, but it can be read as a stand-alone work as well.

This fanfic provides examples of:


  • Alternate Universe Fic: It takes place during the period where Ruby is still asleep after the attack on Beacon. Weiss chases after Blake instead of going back home.
  • Anguished Declaration of Love: Weiss forces Blake to tell her why she wouldn't kill her, which leads to this.
  • Faking the Dead: Weiss is convinced by Qrow to fake her death so that her father won't look for her anymore.
  • Interrupted Suicide: Blake had intended to kill herself and Weiss, instead of just killing Weiss.
  • Kill the Ones You Love: Adam tells Blake to kill Weiss or else he'll torture both of them. Blake almost does, but Qrow saves them before she can shoot.
  • Slash Fic: Still Running pairs together Weiss and Blake.
  • There Is Only One Bed: While hiding out, Blake and Weiss stay in a place with only one bed and a couch. The bed is too small for two so Blake ends up taking the couch.

How well does it match the trope?
