Huh, thank you so much for the points!  I appreciate them!  ^^
Jonarus-Drakus Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
As I said, they're just laying around on my end. So I figured I'd give you a bit of a 'thank you' for camoe-ing Erin, and that one-off you did of Cadicia.

Hey, Jonarus can I use team EMBR in a possible RWBY fanfic I might write
Jonarus-Drakus Featured By Owner May 29, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
I have no problem with them being mentioned as secondary characters or anything like that (so long as I am properly credited obviously). But I'm going to have to make that 'secondary/background only' thing a requirement - Mainly due to my own plans for them (which are still secret for now - But I'll share that they include animation).

And of course, if you go ahead with this, be sure to let me know about the results!

LEGOboy130 Featured By Owner May 29, 2017
Okay I will use them when I see fit and aliso I will be doing that scene you were talking about with Jarl about Enki and Rakela.
