    I don't normally put things up for review after only five chapters but I'm making an exception here. The story is straight away AU. The author has twisted RWBY slightly into something both mysterious and nefarious. It's gripping and I can't help but wait for more.

    I've already had to completely re-evaluate what I expect certain characters to do because while on the surface they look like they're stock RWBY characters, little things feel deliberately wrong.

    To be honest I didn't know it was a crossover until I went to make this thread and I still don't know what Exalted is - some sort of fantasy game?.

    Provisional 4/5, might bump it up depending on how later chapters go.

    I think it is a role playing game? I usually steer away from fics that crossess with it since the characters end up being overpowered. Like, it seems that one type of charácter is defined by having the power of being good at anything they try and a whole bunch of other powers, with another type being some kind of fate manipulator? Well, I will give it a try anyway.

    Is this one of those exalted fics where they overtly state what kind of "charms" and such they get in the fic.

    It's a fusion with the setting, there has't been any discussion of RPG mechanics in the story itself. I'm enjoying the story so far, but I think it's too soon to be up for review.

    It's now at nearly 200,000 words with the author maintaining a consistent weekly update schedule since it began. Easily the best RWBY fanfiction there is in my opinion, in terms of quality of writing etc.
