Hey, Monty? I'm still sad that you aren't here, but come on dude. That was a dick move today in RWBY. Seriously. Can I file a complaint, or is it too late?

A wonderful man, who's words and work will go on to inspire others hearts and minds. 
Just stumbled across this and read some of the comments realising that it has already been 1 year, Rest well Monty Oum. May everything you did in your short yet filling life continue to forever inspire.

It's already been a year since Monty died…I wanted to make a video but… I couldn't do it…but what I got to say is Monty is the who inspired me to become an animator and an artist, and one day i am going to make my own anime, when people ask what inspired me to do it, I'm gonna say "Monty Oum was the one who inspired me". Ever since RWBY started and I found out who created it, which was Monty, I worked so hard to make a character to send it to asking if he could be part of RWBY…but when he died, all the work I saw seemed like useless stuff…but what I realize what I could do is do what Monty does best, "Keep moving forward", so I decided to turn all the work I did to send to Monty and tried to make my own anime, I'm still working on it and I want it to be a good show in memory of Monty Oum…

I would be the person I am today if it wasn't for Monty Oum

Rest in Peace man, I wish we would have met…

I started watching RWBY one faithful school night, and I instantly fell in love with it. You've inspired me to become an animation writer, and I hope to become a part of the actually animation part. Monty, I thank GOD that I've come across your amazing works, and now I can be member of a future animated series. Thank you for being the best role model I could had ask for in not just the animation department, but as a human being seeking for a difference in the positive direction.

I miss ya, Monty.
A lot of people do. I was devastated when I found out you passed.
Thank you for the inspiration to be an artist.
Hopefully you'll know of all the good things people are telling you.
I hope RWBY continues on the way you dreamed it would, and I hope, wherever you are, you are content in knowing what you've done is incredible.

I know you're probably not reading his but this helps people.
I wasn't notified of your death till march. I'm sorry I didn't say anything.
I loved your animation. Even though I stopped watching after I was told of your death, I want to say you were a awesome person and I hope your wife is doing good. Bless her, going through that.
Keep moving!

Hey Monty.

Today’s February 1st, which means that everyone is talking about you. It doesn’t feel like you died today, though. To me, you died February 2nd. I got that text with the words “He died”. I sat there, confused in my Civil War/Cinema class. At 1:54 PM, I realized what had happened. I got up, and it felt like the world had crashed down on me. I walked out of my cass and started sobbing. I ran into our cafeteria/theatre/auditorium and was met with other teary eyes. I sobbed and kicked a wall. No one questioned the kids who were emotionally broken. I watched my best friend’s face change from fear to confusion to horror. I watched the stream they held for you, and I started sobbing again. I’m still biased over everything. I’m upset that you aren’t here right now (moreso considering how evil you’ve been with RWBY this volume, jesus dude). I’m still crying over it.

I have your motto on my door right now. Keep moving forward. 

I want to thank you. You reminded me how crazy life can be, and you made it clear how much we take it for granted. I’ve been putting off a lot of things for a while, and I’ve started them now. Because of you, I finally started working on my book. I also started up my channel. Because of you, I’m going in tomorrow to speak with my facilitator and get the help I need for things that are not stable in my life. I’ve taken up college courses (A video editing course, would you believe that?) and am working harder on getting decent grades.

I’m bitter, though. I’m angry because I never got to thank you for being a driving force throughout younger years, when I was questioning my entire life. I’m angry because I never appreciated some of what you did until after you were gone. I’m sad because next year, when I’m at RTX, I won’t be able to thank you for being my inspiration to keep holding on when there was no one else to do that.

Thank you, Monty Oum, for existing. Thank you for 33 years of life. So many people have been touched by you, and I wish you could see that.

Hello, Monty, it's been a year!

Your work continues to be inspiring and I'm so happy to have discovered RWBY. My friends and I, as a tribute to you, are setting up an RP group based on the RWBY-verse, which we hope can inspire others to get creative, create RWBY OCs, and meet the fandom on dA!

"Use your imagination to make the world a better place in any way you can. If you know Monty like we do, then you know he would certainly be doing that if he were able to." - Matt Hullum

We hope we are honoring your wishes with such an act, and we plan to take this RP group as far as we can!

♥ With Love,
