This is one of the best new fics in the RWBY fandom but unfortunately that isn't saying too much. I have to agree with Zansa that the story suffers from a lack of a consistent tone, though I feel that it's an inherited problem from it's source material. Like the Coeur fics it's based on the primary problem with it is that the pacing is abominable, 39 chapters and 270,000 words should be a full novel but in this case we're probably not even two thirds of the way through. Too much time is spent on other characters and it bloats the story to a near unreasonable degree. I can't honestly explain why we need to dedicate any time at all to the burgeoning lesbian relationship of his students or their petty pranks on each other in a story about a fake teacher seeking to steal an ancient artifact to power his revenge on the manifestation of all evil while trying to hide his intentions from its immortal wizard owner. There is, I think, an excellent plotline here buried under mountains of filler content. I like that Jaune, and to a lesser extent Neo, have an actual motivation but feel that little of what they do chapter to chapter is actually related to their goal. As Zansa mentioned the inclusion of the coffee bits, which were already a massively overdone joke in the original, damages the tone and results in the characters acting strangely given their motivations. Despite these issues I think it's a worthy successor to Professor Arc; most of its problems were present in the original and certainly either one is better written than the actual show. If it was about half as long I'd probably give it a 4 but as is I give it 3/5 for competent writing and intriguing concepts dragged down by a whole lot of filler.
