This started out with Nami then Zoro then Usopp going down until I made the last one which was Luffy. I wanted to make a happy sort of series, that despite their hardships, their older selves became stronger.
I... didn't anticipate feeling so miserable by the end of it-- even halfway through ;__; Making Chopper's killed me, and Franky's actually made me tear up. It didn't help that I insisted on seeing their flashback episodes for references.
It's hard to properly make out Franky on his picture, I know, but hey-- if you got run over by a friggin SEA TRAIN, you'd be very much beat up and, frankly (no pun intended I swear) unrecognizable. I've had worse plans for his look but since OP is supposed to be PG...
Oda is a cruel man, I tell you. He knows how to make people suffer.
I was listening to Phil Collins' "You'll Be In My Heart" and got all emotional and ended up making this. Just a little idea I thought up of Luffy having a nightmare about what happened at Marine Ford and his crewmates just being there for him through it. You know how the song goes. "I will be here don't you cry" and "for one so small you seem so strong" just made me wanna emphasize how very loyal and bonded Luffy's crew is to him and I can see this happening.
