Pink Lemonade is the femslash ship between Yang Xiao Long and Nora Valkyrie from the RWBY fandom.


Nora and Yang first met at Beacon and quickly became friends. As Team RWBY and Team JNPR settled into their new school life they were all often together at lunch. The two also teamed up togather with their respective teams in the Emerald forest initiation. At one such time Nora did a dramatic retelling of her dream which Yang seemed captivated by. They continue to have a playful friendship as Nora is later seen flinging food at Yang that she catches in her month.

This escalated when Nora then threw an apple at Yang for making a bad pun, causing Yang to throw another apple back in retaliation. This in turn made Nora throw a cream pie that ended up hitting Weiss instead, leading to a food fight. They faced off during the food fight and Nora used her watermelon hammer to launch Yang out of the building. However, after the fight, both show no ill will towards one another and they laugh it off. The two are later seen at the library together.

After the battle of Beacon, Yang and Nora do not see each other for several month until Yang catches up with Ruby and others. Nora is impressed with Yang's new robotic arm but challenges her to an arm wrestle to test its strength, which Yang accepts. Nora notes that the arm feels as strong as Yang's original one, implying that this is not the first time they have arm wrestled. Ultimately, Nora loses the match when Yang unexpectedly fires the arm off. The two are then later seen together in volume 7 laughing next to Penny.


Pink Lemonade is a rarepair in the RWBY fandom. Fans of the ship are often drawn to their similar natures, both being physical powerhouses of their respective teams and typically the less subtle. Before volume 5 there was a common head canon that Yang and Nora would star together and even arm wrestle. When that did eventually happen in volume 5, fans were happy to see it become canon. It has a small fanbase on tumblr.
