    Summary

    Humans can make out patterns out of nothing. Like discovering shapes in the cloud, or images between the stars. If you listen to static noise long enough they start to form meaningful words, even when there isn’t any.

    This is the closest approximation to how Ichiji feels things.

    It is almost fascinating, then, for him, to watch Sanji, who seems to feel everything with his entire being, so visceral and open and raw.

    Summary

    Nami takes stock: she is about nine; the calendar on her wall confirms it. Her funds are nowhere near what they need to be to free her village right now; she’s only just started collecting her money. Arlong has only just taken over.

    Bell-mere has only just died.

    She was not allowed on solo missions until she was thirteen, last time around. Not until Arlong was certain she would not go running off without Hatchan to keep her in check.

    She feels the tears starting to form.

    That won’t do; she will not lose herself to despair. She never has, and she will not start now.

    (Or, Nami wakes up in Arlong Park, eleven years in the past. She handles it well, all told.)

    Summary

    "Precision," said Rayleigh again, picking up another twig. They really were his best bet for keeping Luffy’s attention. "Direction. Range. Any Conqueror can flatten a battlefield indiscriminately, but only the most practiced can hit a single target from half a mile away.” He pointed at Luffy, then gestured upwards. Luffy followed his hand with his eyes. “The bird was just out of your range, so no matter how much willpower you poured into your attack, it would have been able to recover and flee."
    "Huh," said Luffy. He frowned. "So I just gotta make the haki pointy?"

    Lessons in conqueror's haki, on Rusukaina.

    Summary

    Dragon is a powerful orator, charismatic and fierce. He had to be, to lead a revolution, but here with his big words and fierce gestures in this dismal little out-of-the-way nearly empty dive it all seems faintly ridiculous. Garp says nothing, looks down at his glass and lets silence speak for him. Dragon huffs a laugh and says, “I figured I’d try.”

    OR; Marine, be thou for the people.
