Monochrome is the femslash ship between Weiss Schnee and Blake Belladonna from the RWBY fandom.

Canon

Blake and Weiss are teammates. Their first meeting did not go well as Weiss became angry with Blake for insulting the Schnee Dust Company. Due to the hostility Weiss has for the White Fang and her distrust of the Faunus, she runs into conflict with Blake. Blake is likewise annoyed at the prejudice Weiss shows towards the Faunus, taking it personally in the process of defending her race. After Blake accidentally reveals to the team that she is a Faunus and was in the White Fang, Weiss becomes distrustful of Blake and questions her loyalty.

Following this incident, even though Weiss seems as if she does not care, she does want to find her teammate after saying she was gone for twelve hours. Following the Dust incident, where Penny was able to stop the theft, Weiss said she does not care that Blake is a former member of the White Fang; they are teammates first and foremost.

By book 2, they both seem to be on friendly terms, as also shown when Weiss shows concern for Blake's recent behaviour, saying it is unacceptable and that she made a promise to her team to tell them if anything is wrong, which implies a high amount of mutual trust. After Blake brings out her worries about both Roman and the White Fang and proposes they fight their enemies, Weiss agrees, commenting it might be fun. Trust between the two has increased to the point both are able to work well together, showing good team coordination in their fight against Roman. Before Pyrrha's fight against Penny, Blake and Weiss decide they have seen enough fighting and get drinks together instead.

Later when team RWBY is still split up, Weiss and Yang discuss their feeling on Blake's possible return. While Yang remains conflicted, Weiss notes that she will be there to support Blake if she chose to return. When Blake does return she asks with concern if she is alright while rejoining her and Ruby, surprising her two teammates as they remember her as always being the quiet one.

By "Welcome to Beacon", the two seem to be on friendly terms, as shown when Blake points out her worries about Roman and the White Fang. When Blake proposes they fight their enemies, Weiss agrees, leaving Blake with a sigh of relief, knowing that her team is with her. The two also seem to trust each other well, as Weiss hands her a cartridge of Dust that allows Blake to get the upper hand in her fight with Roman. After a White Fang lieutenant defeats Weiss, Blake shows concern for her teammate and flees with her to avoid getting injured. In "Necessary Sacrifice", Blake associates Weiss with the word "defiance". In "Haven's Fate", Blake makes a strong entrance and asks with concern if she is alright while rejoining her and Ruby, surprising her two teammates as they remember her as always being the quiet one.

In "The Coming Storm", after Weiss is terrified of the corpses she finds, Blake comforts her with a blanket on the shoulders. During "Dead End", after Caroline Cordovin referred to Blake's character as "questionable", Weiss replies, "What's that supposed to mean?" as a means of sticking up for her. While in "The Greatest Kingdom" Blake is worried for Weiss when Weiss talked about her fear of being returned to her father. During their mission in an abandoned Dust mine in "Ace Operatives" Blake is comforted by Weiss after she pointed how Faunus were exploited and possibly died in the mine before and during the accident and smiles and put her hand on Weiss' shoulder after she apologized for the pain her family caused to Faunus.

In "Pomp and Circumstance" she glared at Jacques Schnee when he tried to manipulate Weiss into coming back with him due to realizing that he was emotionally abusing her due to her own past experience with Adam. Later, she stepped in to support her along with her other teammates in defiance of him. During "The Final Word", Weiss sheds tears when she sees both Blake and Ruby fall into the void, courtesy of Cinder. She then takes up Blake's weapon and vengefully uses it to attack the Fall Maiden, despite being completely outmatched.

Fanon

Monochrome was a popular ship when the first seasons of RWBY aired but fell to a more moderate popularity after the rise of Freezerburn in book 5 and the overall popularity of Bumbleby. Fans were drawn to ship as they liked the possibility of Enemies to Friends to Lovers dynamic being set up.
