Fandoms: One Piece

Unbeknownst to many, Luffy is not born to the sound of salty waters crashing against the coast, nor is he born to the sound of windmills in an unassuming village, but to the smell of sweets in a castle whose walls are made of cake.

Sanji took a steady gulp of air to calm the growing trepidation. He really needed a cigarette, but Wano in its separation from the world didn’t have his usual, and they rolled their own tobacco here. He worried his lip instead “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

Kurosaki Ichigo dies at age 18, when his body simply gives up on him under the weight of his reiatsu. He joins the Gotei 13 and becomes the Lieutenant of the 5th when Hinamori is transferred to the 8th to become Lisa’s Lieutenant.
Aizawa Shouta went to Karakura High School for a single year, before his family moved to Musutafu and he managed to get transferred into UA High School’s Hero Course. He returned to Karakura only once after that, in the summer of his third year, to the funeral of an old classmate he had had the unfortunate luck of being on the same class with throughout middle school and for his first year in high school.
Over ten years after his death, Kurosaki Ichigo receives a mission in the World of the Living. The mission involves trying to find seven ghosts that have never been seen before that seem to be anchored to the World of the Living in some way, that seem to be hanging around the hero All Might, in particular. Ichigo’s job is to find the Pluses, smoke them out of hiding and send them to Soul Society before they can turn into Hollows.
Awkwardly enough, this mission lands Kurosaki Ichigo in Aizawa Shouta’s classroom as a student.
Between Luffy’s shoulder blades, sits the hoof of the soaring sun, the mark of a slave. Ace can’t breathe, can’t do anything but stare at the brand as the sight burns itself into his memory.
“I-I told Ace. I-I’m…”
Ace doesn't let Luffy finish, he removes the shirt entirely, hands shaking.
“I can’t believe you went and got yourself so hurt without me, do you know how much I worried about you?” The smile he gives doesn’t reach his eyes at all, but it seems to shake Luffy from whatever memory was surfacing. “Troublesome little brother, I missed you so much.”
Ace loses two brothers the night of the fire. One to death, and the other to a darkness he might never be able to chase away.
(Dragon still finds Sabo in this universe)
Ace is kneeling on the execution platform, ready to accept his fate. He wishes his father and crewmates hadn't come for him, but is glad that, at least, his older brother hasn't come to die for him as well. Or so he thought.
Or: the Navy tries to execute Ace. Newly dubbed Emperor of the Sea Monkey D. Luffy shows the world why that was a mistake.
