No one's pov

After having a nice simple dinner they all went back to the living room so that they could continue to watch the future. 

After the opening, the camera zooms in on Beacon, passing a large and unnerving ship as it descends upon a landing pad. Two Bullheads fly by as the camera slowly lowers to show ant-like swarms of people on the paths around Beacon. The camera shifts to the top of a tower veiled behind clouds. Ozpin and Glynda can be seen through the window into Ozpin's office.

Glynda: Ironwood certainly loves bringing his work wherever he travels.

"Jimmy's there? Oh this will be good" Qrow said in amusement as the rest of his team rolled their eyes. 

"Jimmy?" Kali asked with a confused look on her face which was mirrored by everyone except Team STRQ.

"General James Ironwood" Summer explained gaining nods of understanding from the others. 

"Why do you call him Jimmy?" Willow asked causing an almost wicked smirk to appear on Qrow's face. 

"Because it drives James up the wall" Raven explained plainly which caused Qrow to snicker to himself in amusement while the others just nodded in understanding. 

Ozpin: Well, running an academy and a military makes him a busy man. (The camera switches to an over-the-shoulder from Ozpin's perspective as three more Bullheads fly in.) But yes, those are a bit of an eyesore. 

"I think he's trying to compensate for something" Tai said teasingly causing a few people to snort in amusement while Qrow burst out laughing. 

(A chirping beep sounds repeatedly. Ozpin turns to see a hollow-message "Access Requested" on his desk.) Come in.

The camera switches to a low perspective beyond Ozpin's desk and facing the doors as they slide open to reveal Ironwood as Ozpin approaches to greet him.

"He looks so old" Summer pointed out which sobered Qrow up as he looked at the man up and done. He definitly looked older but then again quite a few years pass o it really shouldn't be that much of a surprise.

Ironwood: (cordially) Ozpin!

"He seems to be in a good mood" Kali commented. 

Ozpin stands at attention.

Ozpin: Hello, General.

Ironwood: Please, drop the formalities. (Both approach and shake hands as Glynda also approaches.) It's been too long. And Glynda! It has certainly been too long since we last met.

"You think he would have realized by now that Glynda just does not like him" Summer said in amusement. 

Glynda: Oh, James! (Gives a personable wave and then drops all pleasantries.) I'll be outside. (She walks away.)

A few people laughed at this. 

Ironwood: Well, she hasn't changed a bit.

As Ozpin speaks, the camera shifts and Glynda can be seen from behind Ozpin and Ironwood as she exits the room.

Ozpin: (As he turns to his desk...) So, what in the world has brought you all the way down from Atlas? (He picks up a mug and a kettle, pouring as he speaks.) Headmasters don't typically travel with their students, for the Vytal Festival. (He turns and offers the cup to Ironwood.)

"He's sharing his coffee? Oh my the world must be ending!" Tai announced dramatically causing everyone to laugh in amusement. 

Ironwood: (The camera shifts to a close-up showing the mug changing hands. A clink is heard.) Well, you know how much I love Vale this time of year. (Ironwood produces a canteen from his inside coat pocket and pours its contents into his mug.)
