Sucker Punch:: Guardian AngelEveryone has an angel.
A guardian who watches over us.
We can't know what form they'll take.
One day, old man.
Next day, little girl.
But don't let appearances fool you.
They can be as fierce as any dragon.
Yet they're not here to fight our battles.
but to whisper from our heart.
reminding that it's us...
lt's every one of us who holds
the power over the worlds we create..
We can deny our angels exist..
convince ourselves they can't be real.
But they show up anyway.
At strange places.
And at strange times.
They can speak through any character
we can imagine.
They'll shout through demons
if they have to...
challenging us to fight.

There is an island in the New World, protected by its own laws. No danger is present, no harm comes to those who are not stupid, and there's only creativity.
Verto; the island of music. Musician's come all over the world to this secret paradise, where no harm would come. They relax and do what they want. Few besides the musicians know of Verto, and those who do are sworn to secrecy.
It's a beautiful place, where artists of all sorts perform in the streets, practicing new pieces before tours. Dancers kick through the streets, styles ranging from sharp hip-hop to willowy lyrical. Musicals are always playing in the theatre, as rock bands play at the concert halls. Everyone's happy, peacefully.
And because these people ARE artists, nothing's ever normal. That makes the days more exiting, more inspirational. Laughing at silly stunts one guy pulls or fretting over personal issues. The life here is never calm, but somehow relaxing.

"All hands on deck! Sanj, pull up the sail!" Nami shouted.
"Anything for you, Nami dear!" Sanji sighed as he ran for the billowing sail, hearts for eyes. The winds blew harder as rain pounded the deck. The Going Merry rocked with the turmoiling waves as lightning lit the dark sky.
"Usopp! Zoro! Tie down any loose items on the deck!" The Straw Hat's ran around, securing the ship and finding cover from the storm.
Luffy ran around with Chopper, the tiny blue-nosed reindeer with medical training. "Stooooorrrmmm!!!!"
"Luffy! Chopper! Get to work!" Nami yelled.
"Aye aye, Cap'n!" they said saluting her
"Wait, I'm the captain. Get to work Chopper!" Luffy exlaimed.
"Aye aye, Cap'n!" Chopper said.
Usopp screamed. "Wave!"
Luffy turned and gasped, a huge wave about three times the size of the Going Merry over took the ship.

Monkey D. Luffy's caught in a fight with Witch in the forest, fires rampaging around him after knocking the princess from the roof top. Roronoa Zoro's facing Sterling behind the palace, the old paper angering him for some unknown reason while Sterling jeers at him. Nami's in a tight spot with Miss Jasminez up in the fifth floor west wing corridor by the guest housing, a dagger at her throat and unable to wiggle out of this one. Usopp is up against the wall by Saito in the sixth floor corridor in the east wing, with Tony Tony Chopper fighting off Leslie and his beasts' just outside in the courtyard. Sanji is talking with Clanford in the kitchen about how he can change his life, unaware of the deadline. Nico Robin is heading down to the dungeon to release the Tomonians, and Rhythm D. Jade is by the front entrance of the castle, the princess safe in her arms.
Who knows what happened to Sapphire, he could be dead for all we know.

The island was called Rozentuin*. It was small, but had huge docks were ships of all sizes were bobbing silently on the waves. The port itself was crowded with pedestrian, traders and tourists, bustling through to get what they needed done done.
The streets were crammed with people and venders, trying to sell us stuff we really don't need (Luffy insisted that we defiantly need a pet turtle- 'scuse me tortoise- that could do a backflip). Even with the crowds, the place had a certain charm to it. Cobblestone roads with gas lanterns, three story buildings crammed next to each other with the occasional ally, the smell of food and spices wafted to the air,. Mixing with the salty sea breeze and the roses the island was also famous for.
We had five days here, so we decided to just relax once more before we had to go. But when Nami found out there was also a Marine base stationed here, she decided to have us get the supplies first so if we are found out before the Log

The fights are coming to the end, as Chopper, Sanji, Zoro, and Nami come out as the winner, while the Vine Pirates fall to their own weaknesses. Usopp and Nami are now facing the final showdown with Saito, while Robin is off doing whatever Robin does in serious situations.
Luffy on the other hand, is still fighting Witch. The battle gets more serious as the fires get closer, the stakes are higher and the anger is more potent.
Will this country finally be free or will Luffy fall to his own anger and let Witch take over? What happened to Robin? Will Princess Amaya finally do her job as next in line for the crown for Tomoni Island? And will Rhythm finally get that puppy she always wanted (JK she wants a cannibalistic duck)?

"Well, I better get going," I said, jumping gracefully atop the railing of the beaten Going Merry, "I got things to do and you gotta ship to fix up."
"Wait what?! No you're not!" Luffy said.
"Yeah, I am," I fixed my fedora and pulled my bag higher up my shoulders, "Nice meeting you all! And thank you for everything!" I waved cheerily.
"As your captain I command you to stay on this ship!" Luffy yelled.
"Rhythm, don't go!" Chopper cried.

Zoro was tired of this. He hated that everything and everyone just kept moving. It annoyed him to no end how one second, he was walking along side Rhythm and the next she was gone. He is well aware of the fact that everyone had a horrible sense of direction and always blamed it on him for getting lost, when they in fact were the lost ones.
At the moment, Zoro was wandering around along the harbor, an unfamiliar one that is. The one the Sunny was at the port that sent the smaller boats out to those famous coral reefs, and was bustling with burly fishermen coming in from morning fishing. This one, however, was shadier. The docks were grubbier and the people looked, well, not very friendly. Covered cargo was being loaded and unloaded large ships and it wasn't as loud or bright. In fact, the mountain behind them sort of blocked the sun so it was cooler here. What made the swordsman stop was the Marine warship docked here. The residents here were o

Hands brushed the sides of my jean, sliding softly over the rough fabric. Nimble finger looped around my belt while another caressed the small of my back. Gentle digits stroked the under-side of my ass and between my thighs.
They were cold hands. Cold, dead hands of ghostly smoke.
They felt real, oh so real, but I knew they were just an illusion.
The cold ocean wind brushed through my hair and tugged my clothes as a half-moon shined down from above. It was the early morning, hours before the sun would rise.
I woke up two days ago officially. I talked with the crew and caught up completely with them, answered questions about my job and just hung out together. It was nice. After Impel Down, being babysat by Garp sounded like Heaven.

"No before you do anything, even hug me, tell me how the fuck are you still alive!" I hissed. My emotions were jumbled up, and I hated it. I didn't know whether to be happy, confused, pissed off or sad.
"Well, I survived," Ace said.
"You had a molten fist ran through your chest. It melted most of your vital organs," I narrowed my eyes.
"At least support me on this! I survived okay, I don't know how but I did!" he shot back.
"Like I can believe that! You could be a fucked-up fraud for all I know?" My voice rose.
Ace and I never really got along, we were okay sometimes, able to comply with whatever and work together when needed. But other times we just couldn't stop bickering. The bastard always annoyed the shit out of me, and I annoyed the shit out of him. We used to bickered constantly, finding ways to piss of one another the most effective and used blackmail.

Miss D Chapter 9I snickered at the man sitting across from me. Kaku always made me laugh with his odd obsession with giraffes. He was going on about how he had a dream about how he was a square giraffe sword fighting with a moss ball. The long nosed man told me it reminded him of Zoro, which made me laugh even harder. I had met up with my friend for lunch, mostly because I forgot my wallet and I was starving. We just talked about pointless things, stuff no one would consider interesting, but it entertained us. Kaku was still going on about his giraffe dream when I started to do something dangerous, thinking. He's known Lucci longer than I have, right? He's got to know something about him. When I first met Lucci, Kaku was right there, helping him get back up because I ran him over, but that's a story for later.Miss D Chapter 93 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

"Um thanks." I said. We were back at the Going Merry, sun now replaced by the moon. The high tide lapped the small ship gently as Sanji cried, Zoro napped, and I tried tuning out Sanji's moans with Lady Gaga. Her music really isn't suiting the mood. And no one here was taking this all too seriously.
"Guys! Guys!" Nikko came stumbling onto the ship, out of breath and twigs caught in her hair.
"Nikko-chan!" Sanji said, stemming the flow of his tears and instantly snapping back into . . . non pervy Sanji mode.

In the dungeon, chained to a wall with Kairoseki (which I don't get because I most certainly DO NOT have a Devil Fruit power) with Usopp and Chopper on my right and Luffy on my left. It was dark, humid, and depressing down here. The other cells were filled with men and children, babies' dead and crying parents.

The dancers were pulled from their families and taken to satisfy these bastards cruel entertainment, while the rest of the citizens could only stay down here and cry.
The door opened; a loud scrapping sound that shattered the silence.
