    Merman!Sanji, fairly AU with magic mixed in with Devil Fruits and everything else One Piece. I can’t tell if the Grand Line is a thing here, but it is an awesome story.

    Summary

    “You’re lucky, Zoro,” she had spat, eyes turned up towards the sky, like she was trying to hold in tears. He'd never seen Kuina cry before. He’d never seen any expression on her face other than her teeth gritted in determination or her grinning in victory. “I want to be the greatest swordsman too. But girls grow up, and their bodies become weaker than men's. I’m never going to be the greatest.”

    Kuina tells him this, and Zoro can barely comprehend the words she’s saying. He thinks of the countless hours he’s spent training by the river bed, the green locks of his hair left on the floor after Koushirou helped him shear it all off, of the people he thought of as family a lifetime ago calling him by a name he despised. Zoro puts a hand to his chest, where he’d hastily wrapped bandages earlier that day, remembering how his body had begun changing and he didn’t understand why-

    “You’re lucky to have been born a man, Zoro,” Kuina finishes lamely.

    Zoro sees red.

    The tags tell most of what I’d say here. This is a well written piece that mostly deals with the characters interacting with each other. Cannon happens, but it’s not the focus of the fic and it works brilliantly… Ah, I’m not making the most sense. This is a good fic!

    Summary

    Were the world to be born anew, what possibilities could it bring? What people would change, what lands would flourish, and what empires would fall?

    "Huh?" Making a face, Luffy declares, "I don't care about something like that! If things change, they change. I'm still me, and you're still you. If I don't like the way things are, I'll make them change just like always! Besides..."

    Grinning from ear to ear, Luffy says, "...the not knowing is what makes it an adventure!"

    Laughing helplessly, Ace wonders why he ever thought Luffy would think about this any other way.

    In which time-travel can go both ways if you try hard enough - or, in the curious case of Monkey D. Luffy, try barely at all. Ace just managed to get caught along for the ride.

    Another time travel fic, Ace is the central character so far (it’s mostly his POV as of chapter 4, he arrived back in time first as far as I can tell), but Luffy, Garp and the Strawhats are growing their own roles as the story progresses.

    A fair amount of realism here for how and why people act. A good fic, even if there’s a ton of moral questioning going on. Very well written!
