    Summary

    The Devil’s Fruit users clamber aboard the Mini Merry behind Nami, and Luffy drags Usopp and Zoro on, too. It’s a tight fit, and she’s not meant to seat more than four, but Chopper is tiny and content to sit in Robin’s lap, and Luffy and Zoro are sharing a seat less successfully but laughing uproariously about it, and for all Nami’s testy griping, her eyes are bright with good humor. It’s really a perfect sort of day, and they’re all feeling it.

    So Usopp sits on the edge of their little paddle steamer, loops an arm through Luffy’s to keep himself steady, and lets his feet drag through the water as the tiny likeness of their beloved caravel carries them faithfully, if a little precariously, to shore.

    Summary

    Portgas D. Ace keeps running, and instead of receiving a magma fist to the chest courtesy of Akainu, he gets to watch a blinding beam of light eradicate Monkey D. Luffy's heart while he stands less than two feet away. A different series of world events kick into motion, one of which is the unveiling of a new, unique human weapon under the designation ICARUS, or IX-0.

    IX-0 is under orders to patrol and vet the pirates trying to enter into the New World, and it's been going great. About a year and a half after its deployment, it encounters a small, captainless crew with dreams each more impossible than the one before. That should be the end of it, but IX-0 finds itself following them into the New World in search of something it can't explain.

    There's just something about the Strawhat Pirates.

    Summary

    "It's true then?" the first mate asks. "They say Devil Fruit users haven't got daemons - that you give them up for power."

    Luffy tilts his head, sun-guard brim of his hat slipping over his eyes, and continues to smile. "Weird."

    Summary


    “You know none of this is true, right?” The shitty hunter soaks in the tacky decor of the coffee shop with visible distaste.

    “What?”

    “Vamps don’t actually turn into bats,” he huffs, poking at a dangling plastic decoration. “And they sure as hell don’t wear capes, either. They look just like any average person. That’s what makes them so dangerous.”

    “Oh. I had no idea,” lies Sanji, who is most definitely an average person and not a vampire. He shoots the mosshead his best customer service smile, the one that screams sir, this is just an innocent local business with no affiliation to vampires, the Easter Bunny, or Santa Claus. “Can I get you anything?”

    Alternatively: In this economy, you gotta do what you gotta do. Some people hunt rogue vampires. Others run coffee shops that cater specifically to their fellow creatures of the night, and try their best not to get staked through the heart (or fall in love).
