    Summary

    "Robin has lost so much, so many times; and yet she has lost so little, compared to others.

    She has learned -painstakingly, very quickly- not to care about things, that are so fragile and so easily annihilated.

    She has learned not to care about people, for the same reason. It's a lesson she knows well, that she follows without thinking, as much as she ever doesn't think.

    It's a rule she'll never deviate from- at least that's what she thinks, until someone threatens her crew."

    (or: in which Robin decides to protect her friends.)

    Summary

    "Uh," commented Usopp. He stopped, then said, hesitatingly: "If something is too damaged, isn't it better to destroy it, though?"

    "Look, man,"  Franky answered, sighing, "if you're waiting for me to say that what you did is irredeemable, you're going to be waiting a long time."

    Usopp flinched back as if he'd been hit.

    "Isn't it, though?"

    (or: in which Usopp is feeling guilty, Franky is feeling homesick, and they're both scared and not opposed to making new friends.)

    Summary

    "He's going to fall overboard," said a voice right next to him; he looked, and there stood Nami, the bags under her eyes just a little too dark and her eyes just a little too fond, watching their captain run around the ship enthusiastically. "And Chopper is just going to jump right after him, just wait for it. They never learn, I swear, it's a wonder we ever get anything done."

    Her voice sounded exasperated, and her eyes slid to him expectantly, perhaps waiting for him to join in on the complaining, as he had done many times before; but Usopp just laughed earnestly, and leaned on the railing.

    "I missed you, Nami", he said absently, and Nami shot him a look before saying, "Well, you wouldn't have needed to miss me if you hadn't left."

    (or: in which Usopp apologizes too much, Nami fails to hide her feelings, and foundations shaken start to be rebuilt.)

    Summary

    "Please stay, and tell me why one of the World's Government's very own nobles is badly searching for compromising information."
    "That's not what I was doing," blatantly lies Vivi, not rising to the bait in his words. She's heard worse than that. "And I'd be more interested in knowing what one of the world's most famous pirates is doing in the home of an organization you're supposed to hate. Unless you faked that?"
    Shanks' grin takes on a dangerous glint. "Careful what you imply, Princess, lest you offend the dangerous pirate."
    "Careful what you ask, then, lest you get unpleasant questions in return."

    (or: in which Shanks is in Mariejois, Vivi is too, and they have a somewhat friendly discussion about the fall of the World Government and the rise of a new Dawn.)
