    Summary

    Thunderous and overwhelming, the water swallows the deck, rushing up to the trees and covering the sea-strong grass on Merry’s lawn. His crew-mates are laughing, joyous, unafraid even in this storm when –

    A flash of red. A yell turned scream. Terror.

    His captain, dragged overboard by the waves in an instant, Zoro reaching out but collapsing half way through because he was too injured to move, to breathe, to get his captain –

    No one else sees. No one else sees the widening of Luffy’s eyes matched in Zoro’s, the panic as an outstretched arm just misses the railing, as Zoro is too slow, too injured to grab on, the wrenched scream out of Luffy’s throat, drowned by the wind – no one.

    No one but Franky.

    (For Anon, for the prompt: shipwreck/overboard/injury)

    Summary

    You know, in One Piece Luffy got his first bounty by taking down other pirates. In hindsight, that’s silly. After all, normally they pay bounty hunters for that. The declaration that they were pirates seems to be the only reason people started hunting them. Therefore, here’s a...unique take on how the marines could have reacted.

    Summary

    Luffy lands in front of them, silhouette highlighted by the slowly-rising sun, not even bothered by the severe bobbing of the ship. The ship might start sinking soon, now that Sabo thinks about it. All those burns and waves can't have been good for the hull.
    "SABO," yells Luffy, radiant and loud. Sabo breathes in in time with the rush of happiness that courses through him.
    "Hi, Pirate King," he answers.

    (or: after Raftel and Mariejois, Sabo and Luffy reunite. It's exactly as easy as it should be.)

    Summary

    Ezra has seen many people come into the Grand Line, has documented many of them, and knows that people who are too nice, too merciful, not ruthless enough – they all get killed within a day.

    Monkey D. Luffy has fire, Ezra can see, but Ezra can’t see him getting very far. Not with a smile that bright and free. Not without the ruthlessness that is the key characteristic in all the pirates Ezra’s seen make it far.

    No, the Straw Hat Pirates aren’t going to last.

    There’s a reason why the Grand Line is known as the Pirate Graveyard, after all.

    Summary

    “Gomu Gomu no…Pistol!”

    Luffy’s fist hits the boulder with a satisfying crunch, destroying the top half of it completely, and Ace feels pride fill him as Luffy lets out a loud cheer at his success.

    “Not bad,” Thatch mutters consideringly, and Ace smiles proudly as Marco nods in agreement.

    His little brother has grown strong.

    He’d be lying if it didn’t make him feel relieved.

    Luffy’s about to rear up for another punch to destroy the rest of it, still not having noticed them, (Ace snickers internally at the fact that his brother is just as spatially unaware as he used to be), when Ace calls out, “Don’t mess up!”

    Luffy, of course, completely messes up, punching way wide and almost punching himself in the face as he whirls around to face Ace. He looks eerily like his seven-year-old self as he stares at Ace, his confused head-tilt on full-force. Then, recognition shines in his eyes, and Ace grins as his little brother’s face lights up, a beaming smile appearing on his face.

    “Ace!”

    -

    (Or: Ace and the Whitebeards visit Dawn Island a couple months before Luffy sets out, and shenanigans happen.)
