    Man, I am sure a lot of people are saying it or thinking it, but this makes me really miss Kara and Arryn. Like so much.

    I went to Fan Expo a few years back when Lindsay and Barbara were there for RWBY. I wanted to meet them so badly but my friends were assholes that dragged me around the entire convention centre for their own signings and ditched me when it was time for the one thing that I wanted to do. I stood in line for an hour by myself and wasn't even halfway there then my friends got impatient and called me because they wanted to leave. I hope to eventually meet them someday, but at least I got to see them in person... [but needless to say they are not my friends anymore... after they ditched me again sometime later in a place I'd never been to before...]

    I've missed Kara and her adorable personality. It's so nice to see all of them back together again. Can't wait for the post show. #RWBY

    Don't worry Arryn. You share a fear with the Youtube gamer Markiplier, who is scared of mannequins. It's a more common fear than you might think.

    Oh man Barb I have the same problem! I always like of "What if I did this" and then I think of a terrible outcome to my one action. Ah it's awful! 

    This was great! It's awesome to see all the Rwby girls together and you guys covered some fun topics. Excited for the post show!

    For those curious, the Bends in SCUBA diving is when gas bubbles form in the blood and/or tissue due to a rising to the surface too quickly. Tis is becasue at the higher pressure under water the human body will absorb and hold gasses in a higher concentration than it would on the surface, and the excess gas is released as the pressure decreases.

    The bends comes from Nitrogen being compressed in your blood under the water. It basically "Boils" inside of you when you surface. (If you've been deep enough. Or down long enough.) 

    I have that same fear of deep water. I know the EXACT moment I got it. As a kid I loved swimming in lakes and such. One day I was sitting on the dock with my legs in the water. I looked down and I saw minnows nipping at the hair on my legs. Ever since then I've had issues in deep water. But I also face them as I've learned to scuba dive. Only had 1 panic moment when I lost the instructor and my dive buddy in murky lake water. But I managed to refocus and calm myself.

    Also Barb what you described about the driving into traffic is a fairly common thing. It sounds a lot like what is referred to as "Call Of The Void" Its a weird thing that more people experience than don't. But most people don't acknowledge it, or talk about it much.

      The call of the void is a little bit more of a need or a compulsion to do the thing that results in your death though.

    Love you all and this was a great Always Open.  I just want to say, Kara I too have a fear of that open water/unknown in water and had the same experience in Hawaii.  Absolutely terrifying.

    When I met Arryn and Barbara at RTX, I gave Arryn a rwby Hunter X Hunter au fancomic my sister drew. Arryn got so excited and started reading the comic out loud and doing the voices. Poor Barbara was so confused...

    I love these women. And I doubt they read these comments. But on the off chance that they do, or someone who talks to them does, I need to get this out there. 


    Arryn, you were super sweet at RTX16 when you came out to sign in the main hall during a break. BUT you can't sign the tags in sharpie! It rubs off so easily! You told me you were gonna start signing those white circles in the center cause "it was cool" (which was freaking adorable) and I never got a chance to tell you how bad an idea that was!

    I'm pretty much in the same boat as Arryn with regards to Anime, also @Barbara and @Kara my mind is so overstimulated that I can never sleep... at all. Also any chance of Jessica Nigri being on the show.

    I'd be lying if I didn't say I am/was excited for this episode of Always Open since it was first announced. This was so much fun to watch. I gotta say, I have a similar irrational fear to Kara; I just can not do large spaces. EX: Gymnasiums. Unless I'm really focused on something, I just feel so small in such a large space.


    Anyway, thank you Lindsay, Kara, Arryn, & Barbara for a fantastic & wonderful Team RWBY Always Open! Cheers  ruby weiss blake yang

    I'm so happy this episode happened! I wish it hadn't ended. :P It's always so great seeing the four of you together, it's like seeing best friends all having a great time, and it makes me laugh imagining Team RWBY having these kinds of talks. XD

    After they talked about signing with hearts by there names, I checked my RWBY dvds that were signed by Lindsay and Barbara to see if the hearts were there and sure enough they were. Miles, Kerry and Gray didn't put hearts though. I like the hearts <3.

      No, she left to be an executive at another animation company. But she still voices Weiss and is still good friends with everybody. Life happens.

    I legitimately let out a high pitched girly scream when I saw who was on this episode. I have been wanting Arryn on this show since it was created.


    BTW, just so you know Arryn, I met you at that RTX signing you were talking about, I didn't skip over you. Still got the picture of when I met you.

    so - genuinely curious - what makes that shot at the beginning non- alcoholic for lindsey?

      A virgin when it comes to a drink means its non alcoholic, they add everything else like the juices or pop or whatever the shot was made with.

      It was probably made with strawberry juice instead of strawberry liquor. Her shot was a slightly different colour than the others
