The Stray

Since this is the first episode with Sun in it I feel now would probably be the best time to state where I lie on the whole Bumblebee vs Blacksun thing. Personally I don't care their both great ships, now mind you I personaly see Blake and Sun's relationship as more platonic then romantic but I wouldn't hate it if Blacksun became cannon same with Bumblebee. Now I do however heavily ship Sun with Neptune so expect a lot of that in future chapters.

The opening ends to an overview of the streets of Vale being decorated in time for the Vytal Festival. Red, yellow, and green streamers and balloons are proudly on display, and Team RWBY is strolling through it all with an awed Weiss Schnee in the front. A sign is being put up by the elderly Shopkeep that reads in bright red letters "WELCOME TO VALE!" for all the foreign newcomers from their respective kingdoms of Remnant.

Weiss: (stopping and raising her arms in amazement) "The Vytal Festival! Oh, this is absolutely wonderful!"

"It really is" Summer said excitedly.

Ruby: "I don't think I've ever seen you smile this much, Weiss." (frowns a little) "It's kinda weirding me out..."

Qrow snorted at this.

Weiss: (turning to Ruby) "How could you not smile? A festival dedicated to the cultures of the world! There will be dances! Parades! A tournament! Oh, the amount of planning and organization that goes into this event is simply breathtaking!" (they continue walking)

Yang: (sighs, arms crossed) "You really know how to take a good thing and make it sound boring."

Everyone laughed at this.

Weiss: "Quiet, you!"

Yang: (as they stop near the docks and the sounds of foghorns are heard) "Remind me again why we're spending our Friday afternoon visiting the stupid docks?"

Ruby: (covering her nose) "Ugh, they smell like fish!"

"I wonder why" Qrow said in amusement.

Weiss: "I've heard that students visiting from Vacuo will be arriving by ship today. And, as a representative of Beacon, I feel as though it is my solemn duty to welcome them to this fine kingdom!

Blake: (as Weiss starts walking away again) "She wants to spy on them so she'll have the upper hand in the tournament."

Weiss: (scoffs) "You can't prove that!"

"Doesn't even deny it" Qrow said while laughing.

Ruby: (turns her head to the right) "Whoa." (the team looks at a shattered window down the street and a door full of yellow caution tape of the Vale Police Force before walking over to the detective in front, who is writing on his pad) "What happened here?"

"That can't be good" Ghira said seriously.

Detective 1: "Robbery. Second Dust shop to be hit this week. This place is turning into a jungle." (walks over to his partner)

Yang: (sighs sadly) "That's terrible."

Detective 2: (off screen, to his partner) "They left all the money again."

Ruby: (turning her head when she hears this) "Huh?"

Detective 1: "Yeah, just doesn't make a lick of sense. Who needs that much Dust?"

"It's got to be that Roman guy from before" Summer said and everyone nodded in agreement.

Detective 2: "I don't know, an army?"
