While on a mission at Mountain Glenn, the three lie awake at night and talk about what their motivations for becoming Huntresses were.

Later when team RWBY is split up, Weiss and Yang discuss their feelings on Blake's possible return. Yang shares how upset she is about Blake leaving with Weiss, who tries to comfort her by telling her that while she wasn't as close to Yang as Blake was, that she still wants be there for Yang now. Weiss goes on to tell Yang that she will also be there to support Blake if she does return.
In Volume 6, Weiss, Blake, and Yang sit in the back of an Atlesian aircraft after Blake and Yang's fight with Adam.

To this, Yang responds, "We were there for each other."

Bee's Schnees is one of the more popular poly ships in the RWBY fandom thanks to the trio having a close friendship that developed over time. In the early seasons the ship gained a following for those who liked both Bumbleby and Monochrome and did not want to chose between the two. Nuts and Dolts is often mentioned as a side pairing for Ruby in this situation.
- The ship name comes from the saying "Bee's Knees", which Yang uses in the first season. Yang and Blake represent the "Bees" thanks to their own ship name, Bumbleby, and Weiss' last name, Schnee, rhymes with knee.
- Bumbleby refers to the ship between Yang and Blake
- Freezerburn refers to the ship between Yang and Weiss
- Pollination refers to the ship between the trio and Ruby
- Monochrome refers to the ship between Blake and Weiss
