aka The Salem-raises-Oscar AU that no one asked for and exists only to hurt people.
Due to some sort of time-travel or prophetic shenanigans, Salem takes Oscar knowing that he’ll be Ozpin’s next incarnation.
There’s no point in killing Oscar; Oz will simply jump to some other person’s body if Oscar’s is unavailable. But if she can turn Oscar, then Oz will have to live in a body whose host fights him at every turn, and that will make things much, much easier for her during that window of opportunity.
(Failing that, she’ll simply keep the boy close and cripple him once Oz jumps in–-maybe wreck a leg, chop off an arm, whatever it takes to keep Oz weak for an extended period of time. She stands to lose little, and gain a great deal.)
