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.
To get away from the paparazzi or th

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.

"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.

(AN: this is sersioudly the first time ive written an honest to goodness fight scene. Okay these few times but this is different. I have the scenes in my head, but its getting really hard for me to get it down. Please no H8 and this may be short. Idk cuz im writing this before I started writing the chapter .)
"Anti-Manner Kick Course!" I yelled, kicking Clanford right in the jaw and sending him flying upwards. He spiraled into the air with a trail of blood, only to flip around, kitchen knives in hands. The spun in his hands, turning into a silvery blur before he threw them at me. I barely dodged the flying blades. In the process, Clanford landed gracefully on his hands and used them as a springboard to flip him back into the air and into hid feet. Knives flashed and he was at my throat.
"Can't do anything when you're up against a wall, huh cook?" Clanford grinned.

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

AN: oh shit im so sorry! Go back and read the end of chapter 32, now! I forgot a really important part and didn't remember until 3:30 AM a few days after I posted it. Stop before you go on! I beg of you!
"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.
"She's not going so unpack your bags and sit down and have fun!" Luffy ordered. I jumped down.
"Luffy come here," I reached out my hand to him and wiggled my fingers. He grabbed my hand and I pulled him over.
In a low voice, I told him everything. I told him how I caught a glimpse of Sabo and my lead

I took out the lemon in this. Actually I never wrote it. I can't write lemon, only violence and gore. If you're a pervert then go ahead and head the . . . "alternate" version of this chapter on fanfiction.net. That's the only place I'm posting it
One more thing, I will be re-writing this after I finish it, tweaking up some details and what-not. Please be completely honest with me. Also, if you have any questions about this book, small details you'd like to know then ask now. I will be answering all of them at the very end.
Lastly, I have the next chapter written up for this (one of the chapters I wrote months ago, just because I needed it out of my head). Comments, fave, watch . . . please?
You know, that never really works . . .
Whoa I'm on a roll with these! Is that . . . two chapters in two days?!

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

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)?
I can still remember the day I made that discovery. I was nine years old, the year before I lost my innocence. There was a mountain range behind the In-Between forest (I never bother

"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. Well at least I did.
The fact he's alive actually kind of scared me. Not in actual fea

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.
"That was a terrible thing to do, Miss Rhythm," a soft, melodic voice said next to me. I didn't move from the railing I leaned against, looking out over the ocean. The cold
