    Pretty arbitrary reason to cut yourself off from some good fics.

    Not really? I've seen some people do it out of principle (e.g. Making money off of fanfiction is contentious and potentially threatens how far authors will tolerate fanfiction as a whole.). As far as reasons go, there are plenty more arbitrary lines to draw (i will only read harry centric fics etc.)

    I can see the argument for some kinds of fanfiction about patreon, but I think RWBY fanfic has a wider berth than some other fandoms. RWBY wouldn't have been possible without the similar sort of art funding, because RoosterTeeth has its basis in RedVsBlue, a fan project about Halo. Generally speaking people making commissioned fan art is a legal gray area, but most content makers are happy as it helps draw in new fans and pleases their current ones. In the case of RWBY, I cannot see roosterteeth taking action against anyone with a patreon due to that.

    There are cases where people using a patreon bothers me, but that's for fandoms where I'm pretty sure the author would definitely not be OK with it. There are a few authors that dislike fanfiction of their art in general and their wishes are by and large respected by the various fan sites (ff.net has a list of the authors you can't write fanfiction for on their site. It's a pretty... random list).
