Chapter One: The Bombshell set off in Your Heart
A light mid-afternoon breeze flowed through the workshop of Tom & Son's Boat Repair on what had turned out to be a sweltering summer day on the island. A tall, blue-haired man fanned himself as he walked out of the cool store front and into the work area, feeling a little perturbed that he had to wear a suit. He rounded the side of a particularly large fishing boat that floated in the water of the indoor marina and looked down from the upper deck to the lower platform next to the small craft he suspected was his target.
Sure enough, he saw a bit of the tell-tale open Hawaiian shirt and the dark speedo his younger brother wore no matter the weather. The older man felt a bit envious of the cooler attire and let a little more irritation slip into his voice than he intended.
"Oi, Baka-anky! Are you still working on that control panel? We've got two other jobs lined up!" he shouted down to his brother.
The man started, ha

"Well I do."
"What are you, a retard?"
"Shut the fuck up!"
Shouting and yelling filled up the Thousand Sunny as Sanji snapped at Zoro and the other way around. Soon after that the two men got physical with their fight, like always, and Nami followed this from a distant shaking her head. "How can they start a fight over Christmas?" She sighed and moved back inside to the women's bunkroom. Robin was sitting on the couch and smiled at her. "They just can." Was her simple answer. "What was it exactly? I didn't hear it." The historian put looked up from her book, expecting this to be a better story now. She had always found the quarrels between those two to be rather entertaining and amusing. "Zoro hates Christmas." Nami replied. "And Sanji-kun really likes Christmas so.. He got bit angry because of that." She explained and sat down next to the mirror, checking her face for signs of stress. "They see

I had been sitting at the central tower ever since I had come back to the castle after meeting with my friends, and this had been quite a while ago. I liked the peace that I could find here and the magnificent view that I could get of the city. I was still wearing the clothes that I always wore when I was outside, and if a teacher saw me now I would surely get a detention. I really didn't feel like changing back to the quite formal clothes that I always had to wear here. I couldn't help but think about what Law had told me earlier. I never had had quite a lot of contact with him, but we had fought together several times. The same could be applied to Bonney. I couldn't help but wonder who that Blackbeard was. He had committed the worst crime that a person could possibly commit. He had killed one of his own nakama. It was unforgivable. Was he really that strong though? I was sitting on top of a crenel, right on the border of the tower, right over a great fall that would kill

Chapter 1- What Happened?
Nami could hear voices around her but couldn't make out what they were saying. The navigator tried to move her body but it wouldn't respond and the more she tried pain shot through her. Nami couldn't remember how she got that injured in the first place. Was there an ambushed on the way back to the Thousand Sunny? Was the rest of the crew okay?
Opening her eyes too was a lot of effort for the navigator and she regretted it immediately when the light from the room started to blind her. "You're awake," said a familiar voice but Nami couldn't remember who it belonged to and everything was too blurry to identify said person.
"W-what h-happened?" Nami found her voice was dry and hoarse. How long was she out for?
Nami felt a hand on her head stroking her hair. "Don't try and speak yet." Nami felt a straw being placed on her lips. "Drink this." Nami didn't have to be told twice as she felt she hadn't drank anything in days. The water brought great r

It was a dark night on the Thousand Sunny and a thunder storm was slowly closing in. But as of now the whole crew was asleep, except for Usopp and Chopper. The former was currently telling the little reindeer a bedtime story, and for once this one wasn't about the adventures of the great Captain Usopp. This story was about a warrior who defended his village from many powerful terrors, until one day, a powerful sorceress attacked his village, intending to brainwash the villagers into her personal slaves. Chopper was gripping his duvet tightly as Usopp continued the story.
"And with a single swing of his sword, he cut down the wicked sorceress. He was victorious." Usopp whispered loudly so as not to wake the others."
"Yay." Chopper cheered quietly.
"Butů"Usopp then said.
"The sorceress had one last trick up her sleeve. 'You may have defeated me and saved your village warrior. But I always get the last laugh' she said. 'Ha! What can you possibly do you

Usopp felt a shiver crawl across his body as a chilly gust of wind swept across the beach. In the warmth of their cabins he hadn't thought to dress for the cool night air and quickly regretted his decision to wear a baggy vest with an audible 'brrr!'. Luffy stood beside him silently watching as the remaining crew made their way to land. They had docked a mile or so off the back of the island and made their way inland via the Mini Merry. Since the small boat could hold a maximum of four people however the journey inland had to be made twice.

"THANKS, YOU GUYS~!!!!" Franky bawled. "And I'm not crying, I'm just sweating through my eyes!"
"Sure, you are, Franky," spoke Nami. "Sure you are."
Nami gave Franky his gift: a dozen Hawaiian shirts. From Usopp: new carpenter tools. Luffy's gift was 20 pairs of Speedoes, since Franky only had one pair. From Chopper, some new sunglasses. Sanji's gift was some polish for his horn. From Brook, a mix CD of all of his favorite songs. From Robin, a book on the history of ships. Zoro's gift was a pack of six bottles of cola.

Another beautiful afternoon on the Thousand Sunny, home to the Straw Hat Pirates.
Not a sound was to be heard on said pirate ship. Well…except for the sound of two laughing children.
“You can’t catch me, Belle!” called an 8-year-old Roronoa Hanako as he ran around the lawn deck from a 3-year-old Monkey D. Bellemere, or simply Belle for short.
“Oh, yes I will!” Belle called as she chased her best friend around. “Get back here!”
As the children laughed, the grownups sat in the galley together, enjoying each other’s company.
Pirate King Monkey D. Luffy, chuckled as he listened to his daughter and “nephew” playing.
“It’s amazing how those two can get along so well,” Luffy said as he sat next to his beloved wife, Nami.
“Yeah,” Nami agreed as she drank some jasmine tea. “Those two are almost like brother and sister.”

He followed his nose into the kitchen where he spotted none other than Sanji. The blonde cook was currently spreading a brown sticky substance over an equally brown spongey object. Chopper’s eyes widened and his mouth watered. He’d know that sweet aroma and smile bringing appearance anywhere. Sanji had baked a chocolate cake. Next to cotton candy it was Chopper’s favourite sweet. The cook turned around and smirked upon seeing Chopper.
“I knew you’d show up eventually. That blue button of yours catches onto everything.” He smiled.
“That looks so yummy, Sanji~!” Chopper squealed as he ran over to him. “Can I please have some?! Pleeeease~?!” he begged. Sanji chuckled petting Chopper on his hat.

Luffy was up in the Thousand Sunny, sitting on a chair, staring intently at the fridge with the lock, storing away from him loads upon loads of succulent foods, most of which were meats.
"Come... ON!!... Open dammit..." Luffy said to the fridge.
The fridge said nothing.
"Ugh...!" Luffy groaned. "Damn, this stupid fridge!"
His stomach began growling angrily, as if to say "Hurry up and feed me! I'm dying in here!!"
Naturally, Luffy thought, Maybe I could get this thing open somehow...
He ran out side, then came back in with a cannon ball in his hands. "This aught to work." He threw the cannonball at the fridge. It ended up putting a dent in the door, but unfortunately for the hungry pirate, it didn't open.
"Ah, damn it all!" Luffy cursed. "Ooh, wait! I know!"
So he ran out again, and came in with a golf club.

"Cuz, why not?" Nami asked.
Yes, right. Anywho, the girls shop for their clothes at almost all of the known stores, but the two stores they like in particular are Marshalls and Old Navy. They had the best prices there, so there was less of a chance of Nami blowing her top.
"Thank god for that!" Luffy exclaimed.
The plus side was that the staff was always so courteous.
"Another thing I like about shopping at Marshalls and Old Navy," Nami spoke up. "Everyone's so nice!"
While shopping at Marshalls, the navigator and the archaeologist found some clothes that they really liked: a feminine floral blouse for Nami, a black & white print shirt for Robin, a geometric print tank for Nami,

Almost everyone has a favorite dessert and the Straw Hats are no exception.
Luffy loves many different kinds of sweets, but he loves the ones from Fishman Island the most. He claims that they're even better than his all-time favorite food: meat.
Unfortunately, Luffy might love sweets, yet they don't love him back, especially after he eats too many at a time. He would have a stomachache that could last for a while, either way, he will be feeling very sick. Not just that, but he also ends up feeling sorry for himself. Lucky for him, Nami always made him feel much better by giving him a belly rub.
Speaking of Nami, her favorite desserts are anything with tangerines on them: tangerine sorbet, tangerine sherbet, tangerine meringue pie, and even just a regular tangerine straight from the grove!
