The story begins two years after Volume 1 of RWBY, although the assumption was made that it only would take two years for graduation. Currently, three teams are key - the canon teams RWBY and JNPR, with the first added team being SNTL, or Sentinel, consisting of Sun Wukong and three OCs - Noir Storia, Tira and Sapphire Langford. The enemy, who for the most part is unnamed but implied to be a coalition of traitorous Hunters, criminals and the White Fang, has achieved partial control over the forces of Grimm, precipitating a global war.
The fic starts off following Ruby, where she is confronted with a death of someone close to her heart by a team of traitors - Team CRDL. Lost in the desire for revenge, she kills all four of them in the most brutal ways she could, but in the process drove everyone she cared about, all her friends and even the spirits of the deceased to abandon her. This factor shocked her to awaken in hospital, where she was told the first part of her dream, Jaune being shot, was real. She rushed to see him, and found the man and Pyrrha relaxing in a hospital room. Once informed her clothing was seethrough, Ruby fainted.
When she came around, she was back in her bed and comforted by Yang, despite being embarrassed, and without knowing that both Jaune and Pyrrha were equally embarrassed at the sighting. That night, she vanished, although Blake was informed in the early hours of the morning by Noir, who had spotted her and tracked her out to the Snowy Forest, to the memorial stone of Summer Rose.
Unfortunately, she was found by the criminal faunus named Cain and three White Fang thugs, and while she easily overwhelmed the thugs, she was cut down by Cain in a single blow and left unconscious with Crescent Rose's blade heavily damaged, coming around only temporarily when Noir found and rescued her. It took them a day in order to synthesize the antidote. During this, Weiss was on a diplomatic duty within the Schnee Dust Company, seeking to increase the total Dust being refined by hearing out the worker's demands alongside the perverted Langford. However, after breaking the man's nose, she was informed about Ruby's incident and returned to Beacon.
Ozpin interviewed Ruby, and promised to help track down Cain, while Yang organized a party for the next day in Forever Fall.
