I wouldn't be where I was, I wouldn't have had this opportunity, if it wasn't for Blake stepping in to distract the Beowolf-and then to try and cover for me while I retreated. And I would be damned before I let her be humiliated on stage like that. She won... she deserved applause, even if I was the only person to think so.
After Kaedin divulges some of the information on Weiss' passive to Jaune and states that she may have never acquired a Sentinel if she had stayed in Atlas, Jaune assures him that Weiss doesn't need one.
After assisting in relief efforts for the buried Fang village, Jaune ruminates to Ruby on his shortcomings as a leader and she assures him that he is the person everyone in the guild trusts with the position.
Torchwick pulls another one over the guild by putting them in debt to contractors hired to work on their hall. He even managed to fake Jaune's signature on the official documents and the head workman identifies Jaune as the person who authorized the repairs and not even he can talk his way out of this.Until...
Basically all of Beacon's end-of-year festival. Allofit.
Jaune reuniting with his family after over a year when he finally returns to Ansel definitely counts.
Just like that, the tension I'd felt since leaving Beacon slipped away. The fear of my family's reaction pushed aside, at least for now. The rejection, the pain, the anger at my own lies. All of it ceased to matter as I sat at a simple wooden table in a small dining room, on uncomfortable benches with my countryside bumpkin of a family.
I'd not thought I'd feel this way coming home, but I did. Despite all my attempts to leave, my desperate desire to be more than this, I finally felt at home. Content. I smiled back at them all, lifting my cup to meet theirs.
"It's good to be back."
While it definitely doubles as a Tear Jerker, Cinders remorse over her role in the betrayal of Vale definitely counts. After being shown numerous overly-cruel Mistal soldiers, and the self-proclaimed God King who orchestrated the whole thing, Cinders genuine sorrow at having to follow her lieges orders is touching. Shes surprised and horrified to find out her Kings plan to wipe out undefended towns as the Army invaded only after it had already happened, and tries to give Jaune and the Hunters clemency and her personal protection in the battle. Her grief over the dying Jaune and well-wishes for him in the afterlife are sincerely tender.
"If there is a life after this, it is my hope you come back as something better," Cinder said. "You, of all people, deserve to be a Hero. More than I."
Above us, Phoenix warbled mournfully.
Cinder's skin was warm, or perhaps it was I whose skin was cold. Her fingertips brushed over my eyes, closing them. I didn't have the strength to open them.
The Hunters get one of these when they unanimously agree to escape the pressures of Vale, visit Jaunes family in Ansel, and assist in relief efforts. After several chapters of tense interactions in the group, its sweet to see them looking out for each other.
The scene where Jaune and Pyrrha rescue some survivors from Mistral's attack on the villages. The relief that they can live in peace is satisfying.
It's endearing seeing how far Hazel was willing to go in order to ensure that his little sister was able to have a life of her own and attend Beacon.
