Chapter 1: Modern Warfare

How did this all start?

Well, like some stories, it started out with one word: Exposure.

The name's Jaune Arc. Short, sweet, rolls off the tongues, ladies love it. Well, at least I thought so. Anyway. I attended Beacon Academy to become a Huntsman in Remnant.

At first I was put in some serious gut checking courses. Then with the help of 6 girls and another guy, I managed to survive initiation. After that, Team RWBY and my Team JNPR became close. We survived classes, Grimm skirmishes, stuff like that.

It was then I met an unfortunate man: Cardin Winchester. This man was not the type to call friend. He openly hated the Faunus, bullied anyone considered weak to him and even mocked the teachers. No one said anything. When he set his sights on me. I had already exposed the very thing that could make or break me to my partner, Pyrrha.

You see, I forged my way into Beacon. I wasn't Huntsman material. Ever since I was a kid. I always dreamed of being a hero. Now that I think it, I am stupid for even trying. I was naive, idiotic. I had the heart, just not the skills. Anyway, Cardin threatened to reveal this to everyone if I don't "obey him". I didn't take it seriously. I made a huge mistake.

Cardin told the Headmaster, Ozpin, and not a moment to soon, RWBY, NPR, and the entire school was notified. After that I was shunned. Everyone bar RWBY, and NPR hated me. I was hated by many from CFVY to SSSN. Hell even Glynda, the headmistress mocked me in combat class. RWBYNPR remained by my side even as Ozpin called me into his office after two weeks of harassment from the school. I knew the verdict even as the headmaster spoke it. I was done. Blacklisted permanently so I wouldn't be able to enter any other academy.

I began packing my stuff and and soon after found myself waiting for my bullhead to Mistral. Believe it or not, Pyrrha, Ren and Nora were coming with me. They would not let their Fearless leader go to fight the horrors of life alone or in Nora's version: The enemies of fluffy things and pancakes. Ozpin tried to keep them to stay or more so: Pyrrha. Apparently he was hiding something but whatever it was did not deter out resident champion from her decision. RWBY chose to stay behind but promised to write every day and even said as soon as they graduated, they would come stay with us. Weiss wasn't so keen on the idea but Ruby made it a team order making the W of the group groan in annoyance.

Nevertheless, we boarded the bullhead and waved goodbye to our sister team as the airship lifted off. Thirty minutes into our flight, we noticed something was wrong. The bullhead began to shake uncontrollably and we began to hold on for dear life. Suddenly the Bullhead lurched downward and we closed our eyes, waiting for the inevitable end. Well that was until Pyrrha grabbed my face and kissed me. I didn't have time to think as the environment exploded into a white light.

I woke up in a hospital bed. Pyrrha, Ren, and Nora next to me, I looked around and saw a man in a business suit sitting in front of me. He looked up and smiled. The next thing I knew I was asked a series of questions and I answered with every amount of honesty I had. After what felt like an eternity, the man got up and walked out of the room. My team hadn't woken up yet and I felt out of place.

The man appeared and told me one thing that still sends chills down my spine. "Welcome to Earth, Outsider."

A brief explanation, but I wanted to point out that I am not one for story telling. That job lies with Pyrrha or Ren if you want a more philosophical version. In the end, we were soon brought up to speed about the world we now resided in. Earth. I was astounded of the worlds rich and colorful history. After about 6 months in a room with no outside world interaction, we were allowed to leave. We had new IDs, new job's. A new life.

We all decided to join the United States Army, and thanks to our Aura and Semblances, We became part of Special Forces. We took part in mission with Operations Detachment Alpha or ODA 595 in Afghanistan and Iraq, meeting many figures there. Ranging from standard snatch and grabs to teaching local forces how to fight back against their enemy, we did it all. Then after 2 years with 595, we were selected for "The Unit". 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta, commonly known as Delta Force.

After trying out and succeeding in become operators, We were then deployed to assist in a Snatch and Grab with Task Force 141: a group comprised of soe of the best warfighters on the planet ranging from the U.S Rangers, Recon, SEALs, Green Berets, British S.A.S, French GIGN, German GSG9, Polish GROM and many others. The operation was code named: Kingfish. Ren and I provided Sniper cover while 141 infiltrated the compound. Unfortunately, our target was not on sight but even worse, he knew we were coming. The operation quickly became a trap as explosions came from the compound and we began to cover the operators as they retreated back to the exfil. As soon as we did, we became compromised and were forced to regroup with the assault force. An AC 130 warbird callsign: Spectre 6-4 assisted in suppressing the opposing force but enemy was even ready for them. What looked to be standard RPGs locked on to the gunship causing the bird to panic and spark their flares. The first rocket hit the flares but the second did not and destroyed Spectre 6-4. Not long after that one of the Operators by the name of Soap was hit.

Captain Price, the leader of TF 141 began laying down fire while one of the 141 members by the name of Roach and myself grabbed Soap to the Osprey that was landing. We made it on board but Then we noticed Price stayed behind as we lifted off. I was enraged by the sudden departure that I informed my team that we were returning to the States immediately. Because of our actions, we were given our call signs, I became Sandman thanks to the efforts of Kingfish. The footage by Spectre 6-4 revealed me firing 45 rounds the whole duration. out of these rounds. I ended the lives of 45 people. Someone made a joke and said I was like the mythical Sandman: putting people to sleep. The name stuck. Pyrrha earned the nickname Grinch. The reason she earned that one was because if its metal and you piss her off...well, if you value your metallic items: don't piss her off. Nora earned the nickname Trucks. You don't need to know why she earned that one, and Ren earned Frost due to his ability to contain his calmness in combat. We were also given our team name: Metal.

Before I left for Ranger School, I proposed to Pyrrha, after a long relationship. She agreed instantly and we were married after I returned. We are both stationed at Georgia and not long after we were married, we had a child Athena. Nora became the godmother which she was happy to put it lightly. Ren simply smiled.

Now six years had passed since that eventful bullhead crash and I have never been more happy in my life. The problem was in life that sooner or later….

Happiness tends to let Murphy's law take over.

In 2011, a civil war has broken out in Russia between its government and Ultranationalists who seek to restore Russia to its Soviet-era glamor. Meanwhile, a separatist group led by Khaled Al-Assad seizes power in a "small but oil-rich" country in the Middle East through a Coup d'etat, executing its president, Al-Fulani. which prompts the U.S to invade the country. 1st Recon Marines fight their way through the capital though on the 3rd day, Al-Assad detonates a nuclear bomb and destroys the Marines along with everyone in the city. Eventually, The mad man was killed in a firefight when SAS operators stormed his hideout in Azerbaijan. After that nothing really happened.

It's 2016 and the world is still revolving so not much has changed. For the Arc family, Athena was attending school and being watched over by a neighbor while my team was deployed.

And this is where our story starts….

Yes, The story will remain the same if not for a few changes. Yes RWBY will be on Jaune's side this time and yes there may or may not be a storm on the horizon between Ozpin and Jaune in the future.

Also, Metal 0-1 has some very similar traits to JNPR. the big difference between them is experience. JNPR is a first year huntsman team while Metal is a Army SF team. Anyway. This story will arc into MW3 and I will be very clear on the outcome: It may or may not be canon in the end. It depends on you guys and the reviews.

I hope you guys enjoyed the chater and I will send out another on soon.

Love peace and Chicken grease
