Weiss and Pyrrha are friends at Beacon. They are seen talking prior to initiation, though it's unclear whether they knew each other personally or just by reputation. Weiss knows a great deal about Pyrrha's career before coming to Beacon and acts much kinder toward Pyrrha than she does with the other students, even wanting them to be partners. However, her reasoning for wanting to be Pyrrha's partner is somewhat selfish; she believes with Pyrrha's fighting prowess and her intelligence, they will become popular and get perfect grades. Weiss does however see Pyrrha as an equal thanks to these past achievements.
Pyrrha is reluctant to commit to forming a team with Weiss but is still polite to her and agrees to it if the chance does arise. Pyrrha also pins Jaune to a wall upon Weiss' request, though she does apologise for it. When on a mission in the Forever Falls, Pyrrha explains her semblance to Weiss and Ruby and trusts them to keep her helping Jaune a secret.
While Pyrrha and Weiss do not become partners or even end up on the same team they still become friends at Beacon. Their are often seen together with their teammates eating as a group and despite both being the more serious ones on their teams, they both take part in the food fight against each other.
Schneekos is a rarepair, even more so after Pyrrha's death in volume 3. Fans of Schneekos often take Weiss' prior knowledge of all Pyrrha's achievements to be some kind of celebrity crush, whether she realised it or not. Fans also like the similarity between them with them both being put on a pedestal and isolated from people for much of their lives. Some fanworks like to focus on them attending the Beacon Ball together as a way to avoid love triangle situation that happened in volume 2.
