To my fellow RWBY Fans…………….
Today we stand together, united
Artist, musicians, animators, storytellers, the four bringers of creativity
On Feb. 2, 2015, Monty Oum passed away, and a shroud of darkness descended on the fandom
It was a shroud of sadness, depression, guilt, and misguided.
It is more than just the lost of a great content creator, but the loss of a man, an inspiration, and a friend, loved one, sibling, and husband to those who truly new this man.
We grieved for countless reasons, and soon began the shattering of dreams and creativity, and as you are well aware this is something many will not stand for.
As a result, those that opposed this era of darkness began to grow and fan the embers of two great lights:
It is their way to demonstrate that not only will they refuse to tolerate the destruction of such creativity, but to give others the strength and inspiration they had received, to take such experiences to heart and to become stronger than they were before, to inspire others to spread this light to those who have none, and it shall be a movement that is up to us to remain stronger.
We must encourage compassion, selflessness, expression, and creativity, through diversity
As I said before, today we stand united, but this cannot exist without effort, which is why today while those in rooster teeth and the fandom recovers from a dark fall and share in their love, content creators will work to uphold it.
My fellow creators let us continue to express our talents and strive to improve both our skills and ourselves. And let us not ask the question on if the show will continue. Instead let us look to those who need hope the most, not just the employees of Rooster Teeth, but to those within the fandom itself.
Remember to be strong, remember what you have learned, and remember to be your best
