Wealth, fame, power. Gold Roger the king of the pirates obtained this and everything else the world had to offer. And his dying words drove countless souls to the seas."You want my treasure? You can have it! I left everything I gathered together in one place. Now you just have to find it!"It's these words that ring in your ear now as you blankly stare at the room you're in. Maybe it's from the relief that this is all over, or from the adrenaline running out of your system but it feels like you've been standing in place for weeks now even though it was only a few minutes. Your rampage has come to an end, Clown has been successfully converted to your cause. You should feel happy, content even. But a strange sensation dominates your heart, one which you've not really felt before. A strange form of guilt. Everywhere you look all your eyes can see are signs of the path of destruction you carved. Or rather the beast that took possession of your body carved. Feeling drawn somewhere you begin retracing your straps back into the fort, completely ignoring your friends who are just glad to see you returned to your senses."Captain! Where are you going?"Jaws asks but you don't answer. You have too much on your mind.Walking past the splatters of blood, the claw marks and the metal scraps you get to the spot where three individuals tried to stand in your way. Lucci, Kaku and Mary lay where you left them. Motionless. Injured. But still alive."Stitches-""Y-Yes?""Fix them.""A-Are you sure? They are Cipher-""Do it."Reluctantly your doctor goes to work and stabilizes the government agents one by one. First she does Kaku, then Lucci and finally Mary. When she's done with the girl the giraffe mans eyes slowly open which prompts the others to wake up as well."Oh you got to be jerkin' my chains. And here I thought I died and could rest."As Kaku sits up while holding his head Lucci glares at you from the ground, panting heavily."Cavalier... Why?"Breathing almost as heavily as the jaguar man you look down at him."Don't think about it too much. If I'll kill you I'll do it because I want to. Not for any other reason.""Didn't stop you from murdering all those people.""I can't do anything about death. Yet."You turn back to face your friends and begin shambling away."Come on. Let's get back home."But as you attempt to leave you hear a call and shudder."Wait. Are you seriously leaving? Again?! Without saying a word?!""Mary...">"There is nothing for us to talk about. I'm a pirate. You're a government dog. It's easier like this.">"Sigh. Fine." (sit)>"Let's go everyone.">Other
>>5392378>Other>"Fine. But not here. And only you. (bring her to the ship)"
>>5392378>Other>I'm tired, I'm hungry, I have no milk and I have a place that can solve all of that now. You wanna talk now follow me, you wanna talk later you know where I live. You got legs that ain't broken right now and a brain that can do the thinky thing. Make a choice cause I already made mine.
>>5392378>>"Sigh. Fine." (sit)
>>5392378also, minor thing. I thought Lucci was a leopard not a jaguar?
>>5392380I can second this.
>>5392385He is whatever we like him to be, but more importantly I really like the reason why we spared them and how that "yet" is pointing somewhere very, very, dangerous: towards Silvers ambitions forming a more clear goal in his mind.
>>5392378>"Sigh. Fine." (sit)
>>5392383SupportWelcome back boss
>inviting the three very dangerous CP0 agents to your ship. While you have one of their traitors on crewSmort>writing>>5392385No, you see that is because of a little known secret in the One Piece community called: I am a dumbass
>>5392404Fuck just missed it
>>5392404that the kaido strategy?
"I'm tired, hungry, have no milk left in me and feel like a bat ate and pooped me out. And right now there is a place five minutes from here that can solve all those issues. You wanna talk? Fine. But we're doing it in my turf. Got that? And if you bozos try anything I'm feeding you to the crabs in the cargo hold. Got it?""Sheesh. When did the whippersnapper get an attitude like that?"None of the agents aside Kaku has the mental presence to even react to your statement but they all end up following you back to the ship. Most likely only to satisfy their morbid curiosity. They are a bit on edge, being surrounded on all sides by vicious pirates ready to decimate them if they show any hostility but they seem willing to cooperate a little. Back on the ship they are forced to stand as you stuff your face with all sorts of food and drinks. Mary is eyeing you like a cat that has its favorite toy being dangled in front of it, without ever averting her attention. Kaku is busy repeatedly tapping the butt of his katanas in nervousness and Lucci is glaring at Clown who's desperately trying to avoid eye contact."So it looks like you've made your decision Soir Bleu.""...""What's wrong? Isn't this what you wanted? Or are you ashamed of your poor choices in life? Don't worry. I'll help you with that-"As Lucci grins at your crew member with no small amounts of implied malice he sees a chopstick dart past his nose which flies far off the ship and embeds itself in the walls of the marine fort you're still docked at. He looks at you and adjusts his hat."Message received.""Good. Because if you threaten one of my men again the next one won't be a warning shot. Clown decided to join me. Which makes her my crew. Even if she did betray me that's something we'll deal with ourselves. But I won't allow you to even look at her funny!"But as you're having a staring contest with Lucci someone else is also fruitlessly trying to lock eyes with you even for a moment. Unfortunately for Mary there is a certain someone standing between the two of you with a rather sharp looking scythe being twirled between her fingers."Hey. Government bitch. Back off. You stay in that neat little circle Silver drew for you or I'm cutting your legs off. Oh and one more thing. This may not be Silvers order but if you keep eyefucking my husband like that I'll gouge your eyes out. Got it?""You..."Mary grins at Nutmeg."So you're the pirate whore who tied him down! Good-""ENOUGH!"You stomp your leg on the ships deck and the Dauntless begin rocking."I didn't know that was possible but I had enough of murder for today! So all of you calm down and let's get this over with before I loose my appetite!"
Using both arms you scoop up all the remaining food, plates and all to just shovel it all in your mouth. After filling your belly you finally feel alive again and lock eyes with Mary."Alright. I'm ready. Say your piece.""W-What? Me? What do you want me to say?""You're the one who wanted to talk. So do it.""M-Me? You're the one who came out of nowhere and apologized to me! Saying that you understand me! I thought you finally grew sensible and changed your mind!"Hook chortles at this."Heh. They both share a single brain cell.""I said that because I finally get how it feels when someone you care about just up and leaves you! Everything else is the same! Why I left and what I did. And I have no regrets about any of it.""Then... fine. I'll talk then. It's about time I got all of this off my chest. I... hate you. I despise you Silver from the bottom of my heart. I detest you because of what you took from me. I once had a brother. An innocent, brave boy that didn't know fear. One I could look at with hope. One that could inspire me to fight against my illness. I wanted to pay him back one day and give him the nice, happy life he deserved. One where he'd want for nothing, one where we could be there for each other. Forever. Because as long as we were both happy nothing else mattered! But you took that dream of mine and stomped it into the mud! You tarnished everything I fought and struggled for! I'm... happy that you found your strength and courage. But you killed that boy to get it! You murdered him! And you never stopped since-""Oy-""SHUT YOUR MOUTH YOU FILTHY FISH-MAN! I'M TALKING! Sniff. Look around you! You're big and strong. But at what cost? What you're doing is wrong! Look at all that death! With every one of your "adventures" you leave behind a thousand little Silvers who grow up without moms and dads because you KILLED them! You're not free. You're just a monster who disregards all the rules! No better than a feral animal! And I... I still love you. But if you won't come to your senses then I'll have no choice left but to put you down. Because that's the only thing I can do for my little brother anymore. To not let him live on as a monster.">What do I care about any of that? There is me and my own. Nobody else matters>And just what did any of those people I killed ever do for me? Did they try to help me?>Nice story. Except for one part. The person you are so in love with never existed. That was a nothing. A nobody. I was born a pirate!>Other?
>>5392450>>Nice story. Except for one part. The person you are so in love with never existed. That was a nothing. A nobody. I was born a pirate!Like seriously, didn't Mary making him play with her get him beat afterwards by other people?
>>5392450>Nice story. Except for one part. The person you are so in love with never existed. That was a nothing. A nobody. I was born a pirate!>you and your parents were literally the only people from that little island that I don't hate. I'm glad they're all dead
>>5392450>Nice story. Except for one part. The person you are so in love with never existed. That was a nothing. A animal. I was born as the pirate!Man, you gave us two right choices here. Because let's be honest Silver does go pretty heavy into "Only me and mine really matter">>5392457I think we can save that for the latter half, cause I'm sure she has realized that we did wait until after she had left.
>>5392460That's not true. Children matter to silver
>>5392462as do people pushed down and enslaved, hence the "'and mine" bit. Hell Outer Heaven also counts as does Fishman island. The only rule there is if Silver considers you one of his people or not.
>>5392450>Nice story. Except for one part. The person you are so in love with never existed. That was a nothing. A nobody. I was born a pirate!>Stop being deluded
>>5392450>And just what did any of those people I killed ever do for me? Did they try to help me?Its too wordy for Silver to say but from what I understand his sentiment is basically "everyone has a choice and they chose to be between me and what I wanted." At the end of the day Silver kills people, he knows this and accepts this. He knows he leaves survivors in his wake and if one of those should get strong enough to kill him then that's just the cost of doing business.Acting like he gives a fuck would be a lie because no one taught him to give a fuck. Mary was too young and stupid to do it, her parents were too cowardly to do it, his parents were too dead and the people on the island too evil.Eliza taught him "do as thou wilt" and he engraved that mantra into his fucking bones.That's his world, that is his reality. He does as he wills and whatever happens because of that happens.If Silver makes "Silvers" then that's only because ripples tend to spread.
>>5392468I'd say you've misunderstood a fairly fundamental bit there; It's not the cost doing business, it's the moral and just thing to do. He can do what he wants because he is able to enforce his wishes with violence, and that in and of itself justifies why he should have them.It's why he has such a need to be the most dangerous person, because that makes him the most moral and because then nobody else can force him to do as they want. There really isn't any "what did they do for me" mentality, if they died then they should have been better, like Silver pushed himself to be better. And if his ravages pushes an army of orphans to take up the sword and hunt him down he has made them into better people. It's wonderfully fucked up.
Well that's wonderfully one sided>writing>>5392471The whole "What did they do for me" stuff is in relation to "Did anyone ever care to help me when I needed it" and since the answer is a decisive no, Silver is not inclined to take others into consideration. Only when it strikes his fancy
"Nice story. One small problem. There is no other me. I was born a pirate. There was nothing before my mom taught me what it means to be a pirate. That boy was empty. So stop being deluded. And as for those scum on Amble Island? I'm glad they are all dead and I'd do it again a thousand times. You and your parents were the only ones I didn't despise. But then again I don't exactly remember any of you helping me when I got beaten."Mary is just looking at you with a mortified expression. She's in utter disbelief after hearing those words leave your mouth. The way her mouth trembles you get the impression she's begging for someone, anyone to help her, to tell her this is not real. Her colleagues are not budging. They just stand there with their arms folded. They already knew all that. Or if they didn't they just don't care. More importantly it's beneficial for them if she goes through this on her own because she can't handle it and she'll break."Sigh. It looks like you don't get it. So I'll do you a favor. The only thing that matters is strength. You fight to get stronger. And you fight ever stronger things so you can be even stronger. Because if you're strong you can do whatever you like and there is nothing anyone else can do about it. What if I leave behind a few mini-me's? Their parents were the dumb ones to stand against me. And what will they do? Come after me? I hope so! That sounds like fun! And if they get strong in the meantime then I did them a favor.""You're... utterly mad!""No. You're the one who's mad because you refuse to accept how the world works. You think the World Government rules because they are so good? No. They rule because they have the most strength. They have men and guns and ships and admirals. If they didn't nobody would care. And pirates exist because the Governments dogs just aren't strong enough to take them all out. The world is ruled by strength. It's that simple. The real madness is not trying to be as strong as you can possibly be. Because that means your life is not in your hands. It's in those who could kill you."You take a deep breath."I am the sanest man in this world."
>>5392494>"I am the sanest man in this world."What a fucking line holy shit.
>>5392494Holly mollusks that was a hell of a line
>>5392494Now that is one hell of a Silver moment. Fucking aced it.
Now the time has come for Lucci to make his stand. He walks over to Mary whose entirely world view is being shaken and he puts his hand on her shoulder."You heard it from him.""S-Sifu?""He's correct. And it's because he's correct that we do what we must. Do you understand the need for Absolute Justice now? Everything the government does is justified because of that infallible truth. Think about the incident at Ohara, the rebellions, the erasure of history. All the atrocities we commit in the name of "Justice" are not just necessary but morally good. They are needed to maintain the order of the world, the supremacy of the World Government. Because if we fail that then it means men like him will be free to do as they wish and unleash their will on the world. Think about the reports we received from the territories of the Emperors. If we falter then that's what the entire sea will be like. With your "brother" at the spearhead."You glare at Lucci and he feels his body stiffen almost to the point of petrification."Come on Pussycat. Stop lying! We both know there is nothing "good" about what you guys do. All that slavery. All that death. You are no better than us. You only get away with calling yourself that is because you're in power. But once that changes nobody will pretend even for a second that they miss you guys!"You grin and stand up to look Mary straight in the eyes."Now you heard what I have to say. So-">If you want to be with me so badly then fine. Join me!>I believe it's clear now that we got nothing in common with each other>I think it's time for us to leave. Out of respect for Bears request I won't hurt you. But that courtesy has its limits.>Other?
>>5392531>If you want to be with me so badly then fine. Join me!>although I'm running out of back space
>>5392531>>I think it's time for us to leave. Out of respect for Bears request I won't hurt you. But that courtesy has its limits.
>>5392531>I think it's time for us to leave. Out of respect for Bears request I won't hurt you. But that courtesy has its limits.
>>5392531>Other>Get off my ship
>If you want to be with me so badly then fine. Join me!>although I'm running out of back space
i think we should field the offer, since then its up to her to finally cut the tie and have us go full enemies, where as if we just tell her to leave then theres still some sort of connection or hope
>>5392531>If you want to be with me so badly then fine. Join me!I fully expect her to say no, but it would be interesting to just go "Yes I'm right, come be right with me"
>>5392567Yeah i don't expect her to take the offer either, though wouldn't be mad if she did. but its about giving her the power to actually try and rebuild the relationship by joining us or finally cutting it off entirely, no more trying to "save" us, what our relationship evolves to would be decided by her then and then
>>5392570and its a decision she'd need to accept since now its HER decision, no longer in our hands, like i don't think it'd matter how many times we reject her, a part of her will always hold onto that hope until the very end unless she makes the active decision to reject us, cause like i have no doubt even if she was about to kill us as it is now she'd probably try one final time to convince us to go with her b4 she killed us
>>5392562HmmmmFair point actually>writing
"If you want to be with me so badly then fine! Join me and let us sail the seas together! But I will not be some government dog or let anyone tell me how to live my life ever again!"You extend a hand to Mary with full sincerity. She however is too busy sobbing and wiping her eyes to take it. Once she's done venting her emotions and is ready to make her choice she looks completely drained and exhausted, in some ways even worse than when you beat her into the ground during your mad rampage. Looking at her own palm she clenches it into a fist and takes a deep, painful breath."No. Thank you. I am a marine. Like my mother and father before me. I won't abandon my duty and I'll keep fighting. But thank you for the offer. And for finally opening my eyes. I only wish that our memories together meant something to you. But I guess even that's too much to ask for.""Mary. After you were done happily playing with me I was beaten for not working. The only warmth I felt from your "games" were when the grown ups grabbed the fire iron afterwards. It was not any better than what I usually got.""Yeah... I guess it wasn't. Just remember one thing Silver. When the time comes for you to suffer through the same thing you put others through don't expect them to care about your sad story. It doesn't justify your actions.""Never said it did. My strength does that. Goodbye Mary. Oh. And one more thing. I promised Bear I won't hurt you. But that courtesy has its limit."She seems surprised by that."I don't care about what backroom deals dad made with you. I'm a grown up and can take care of myself now. So the next time we meet Silver it'll be on the battlefield. Remember that!"She turns away from you and begins walking."Lucci. Kaku. Let's go."They leave the deck of your ship but you do catch one more thing that Mary mutters once she feels like she's far enough away from your ship."Sifu. I'll forward my resignation from Aegis to you."With them gone you give the order to the Dauntless to disembark. Out in the open water and away from all the nonsense of the marines Marcella looks upon you."That was a bit heavy Silver.""Yes. And?""Just saying that you could've been gentler. Almost felt bad for the stupid government girl.""At least it got through to her. Now it won't hurt her.""You sure about that?""Yeah. Wounds can't heal when the weapon is still in them.""And if Clown did the same to you? Would you still be saying all that?""Yeah. And I'd do the same thing Mary wants to now. If she wants to kill me now then that's fine. I'd do the same. Doesn't mean I'll let her though.""Don't let Spider hear me saying that but... Jesus."
>>5392594Oddly enough I was hoping she would accept. I knew she wouldn’t but I was still hopeful
>>5392603Yea, I hear you. I do. But we burned way to many bridges along the way, and she's spent the last years being bombarded with "Silver is absolutely evil" which to be fair isn't entirely unfair. It's been said before and I'll say it again: I hate Mary the person, I do. I absolutely love Mary the character tho, and this was everything I could have hoped for with a discussion between them. Heavy, emotional, neither person really being able to bring themself to hate the other even if it would have made it so much simpler and you can just see that if things would have been a little different, just a little different, it could have been so different between them. Just fantastic
>>5392594Ah fuck, sucks that I wasn't here before, I wanted to tell her to get some actual friends who can handle her needy bitchy self, like Silver did. Just not him. Hopefully she'll reach that conclusion on her own.
oh btw been rewatching wano lately and had a thought while doing so, would silver just straight up murder tama on sight if he sees her use her DF on a gifter?
The next couple of days on the Dauntless are very tense. Not due to the typically harsh weather of the New World but because of internal tension. Most of the crew is giving Clown the cold shoulder, with none of them addressing her directly or even calling her by name. It's understandable. Once someone betrays your trust it's very hard to forgive them and even harder to rebuild that trust. But it's not something that's too healthy on a ship when your life could very well depend on that other person. Unfortunately you can't do much about it yet."YOWCH! Stitcheees! That hurts!""Quit being such a big baby. If you did not destroy your own body like that we wouldn't be doing this-""OW! That wasn't me! That was the bat!"At least as Stitches is busy applying medical alcohol to your wounds and rebandaging them Nutmeg is there to help you lick your wounds."Come on now. Who's the big bad pirate?""Me!""That's right. And who's not afraid of a little needle?""M-Me?""Correct! Now how about we get your mind off of that? What are you going to do about the problem?""Which one?""The Clown one."She looks out the window of the infirmary through which Clowns song can be heard. Since her "proper" joining of the crew she started playing songs worthy of pirates and the crew undoubtedly performs better when they work in sync with her rhythm. But the problem is still there. The others are hazing her. Which is fine up to a point. But should stop eventually."Hmmm. Not sure yet. We done here Stitches?""For now. We'll have to redo your bandages in the evening though.""Hnnng. Okay let's go. Could you help me with my coat Nutmeg?"With a little help you dress yourself and go out to look at your crew working hard like a dutiful little colony of ants. Thankfully Dexter the rat-mink you picked up is having no issues fitting in with the others. Though he mostly stays below deck during daytime as the harsh light hurts his eyes. In turn he converted a storage room to a personal little mushroom garden which he cultivates both for eating and recreational use. But he's not the one you're most concerned about now. Listening to the wind you locate Clown who's playing Bink's Sake right now and fly over to her.
"Hi.""Hello Silver. How are your injuries?""Getting better. Still hurts a little.""I... see.""Hey don't worry about it. I did that to myself because I was dumb. It wasn't your fault.""I'm trying. But I can't help but feel guilty after causing you so much trouble.""Everyone makes mistakes. Except me because I'm awesome. But it's okay for everyone else. It's all gonna be okay. Just keep being cool Clown.""Hm. Thank you Silver. Now did you want something else? A song request perhaps? I can be a whole orchestra if you want it.""Actually I wanted something else. What's your name? I've been wondering that for a while now and I'm confused.""I... don't know myself. I had many over the years. A new mission, a new identity. Even Soir Bleu is not my real name. Just a code. I forgot what it was originally. So you can call me whatever you wish.""I see.">Pepe was fine>Soir Bleu is nice>You'll always be Clown to me>Other?
>>5392610>Silvers face when he sees a smol child with some funny dangos
>>5392635>>Other?Pepe was nice, and you'll always be Clown to me... mhm, yeah Pepe the Clown it is!
Actually where are we in the timeline atm? i assume dressrosas currently happening or about to start since i think one of the crew would have mentioned if doffys defeat hit the newspapers
>>5392635>Other?>Silver wasn't my name either until I took it. Everyone should have one of their own and If you want a name then we just need to find a good one and make it yours!
>>5392635Backing this >>5392652I still wanna breed the clown.
>>5392652Supporting.>>5392637I'd like to think we'd try to talk to her and teach her why what she was doing was wrong, but...
>>5392675I mean silvers shown a continous 0 policy attitude for slavers, and we've tortured and killed a kid b4, so silvers hands are obviously rated E for everybody, so don't see any reason IC why silver would just not immediately blast her on sight if he saw her using it, especially if it was on a gifter, not sure how he'd react if she used it on an animal though
>>5392706Well for an animal it's more like... taming? I guess?Since animals don't really have sapience it's more of an instant if temporary taming effect as opposed to mind control. So if Silver saw that he probably wouldn't think much of itOn Gifters though he'd get pissed. Infinitely more so if she tried it on him
>>5392713Well with one piece animals their levels of sapience can vary wildly, like what if she fed some to laboon and then ordered him to attack brook type of scenario, since thats 100% something laboon would never do
>>5392722oh shit you're rightwell Laboon would have to do it I guessthe gifters have shown no inclinations for rebellion nor wanting to hurt their alliesaside Speed I guess that traitorous whore
>>5392731IC i can see silver not seeing animals as particularly sapient, since i can't remember us having any kind of meaningful interaction with any animals in the quest, unless im like forgetting something so probably wouldn't immediately kill on sight if he sees her use it on an animal, unless he bonds with an animal b4 he meets her i suppose, like a parrot or something to make us even more of a stereotypical pirate :V
>>5392742oh wait actually im a dumbass, i forgot about our cannonball bois, so yeah theres that
>>5392742we have a pet crab, anon. We talk to our ship. there is reason to believe silver thinks animals have the capacity for sapience
>>5392749There is pretty solid evidence to believe Silver thinks rocks and trees have the capacity for sapience. Constantly hearing voices, will do that to you
"I had no name either until I took up Silver. I think everyone should have their own name and if you want one then you just need to find one you like and make it your own.""Hmmmm. Giving yourself a name feels a bit egotistical. But I think I can see the wisdom in that. Not really sure what I'd like to be called for now. So I guess Clown will do for now.""Alright Clown! Now how about that song?""Bink's Sake again?""You know it!""I know I agreed to it but I'd just like to play a different song every now and then...""No chance!""Fiiiine. But only if you promise not to sing!"You raise a finger in protest but stop."Okay. For now."Clown then returns to her music with a harmonica in her mouth, a violin on her shoulder and a big drum with a cymbal on her back. You climb into your hammock to the sound of her soothing performance and await todays newspaper since you can't really do much work given your current condition. After receiving the paper from the News Coo you see Nutmeg getting in with you."Hey scoot over a little.""Ugh. Fine. But this is so uncomfortable.""I don't care!""When are we gonna get back to Totland anyway? We've been at this for a few days now.""We're still quite far away. Which is why we had to go straight back. Mama wouldn't appreciate if we missed the big event.""Yeah yeah. But didn't you say that the groom is not even there yet?""I did. But keep in mind we will have to participate in organizing the whole thing.""Hnnnng. All this work and no play make me a dull boy.""What no play? You're still recovering from smashing that marine fort!""Yeah but that was not me!""Sigh. Whatever. Hey are you gonna read that thing or not?""I'm on in, I'm on it! If you'll just let me."As you flip the pages open Gu brings you your afternoon glass of milk and you thank him for it. Taking in a big sip you almost immediately start choking on it and spit the vast majority of it on the paper."WHAT?!""Ew."The rest of your crew gathers around young, curious about what you've read."They did WHAT?! HOW?! Those... BASTARDS! Now everyone's gonna be talking about THEM! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!"
You crumple up the paper and toss it away in frustration. With big bold letters the papers talked about an alliance between Straw Hat Luffy and Trafalgar Law taking down the man known as the strongest Warlord, Donquixote Doflamingo. Not only that but that Monkey fuck SOMEHOW managed to get himself a fleet of over FIVE THOUSAND STRONG!"Whew."Murray whistles as he reads the article."Yeap. That'll overshadow Outer Heaven for a while at least.""YOU SHUT UP JAWS!""Not just that but their combined bounty is in the billions. Wow.""YOU TOO HOOK?! Why must the ones I love hurt me so?""We're just stating facts Silver."Will nods."But anyway what are we gonna do about this?""What?""This."He points at Doffys portrait."You made business with him before.""And?""And they are taking him to Impel Down right now. Don't you wanna do something about that?""Oh no William. That wouldn't be a good idea. He's a former Warlord who committed severe crimes. They'll most likely have a small army escorting him to prison. It'd be foolish to try and stop them. Besides he's allied with Kaido, whom Silver's been bullying for a while now.""Harassing Spider, harassing! I didn't bully him!"But Bullseye makes a good point. Doffy did you a solid back then. Or tried at least. And besides, he just had such a nice and innocent smile. At the same time however, yeah it's out of the way, likely very dangerous and you might anger Mama if you dilly-dally. Decisions decisions.>Change course! We'll rescue the flamingo!>Bah. Who cares?>Other?
>Change course! We'll rescue the flamingo!Need to do something to get our bounty up, since either our rampage didn't bump it up any or it hasn't been long enough for the survivors to report on it and our bounty to get offically updated, so we need to do something to ensure we breach the billion milestone, if WG doesn't already do that from us awakening
>>5392755>>Change course! We'll rescue the flamingo!all we know is that he was a cool dude who brought a circus to the town and invited us to a party. now monkey went and roughed him up for "no reason" so obviously theyre enemies, which means we should be friends
Wait is any of the crew gonna read the newspaper further and find out about the whole sugar slavery debacle that doffy ordered? since if silver finds out about that he'd only break doffy out so he can kill him himself
>>5392755>Change course! We'll rescue the flamingo!The man brought us a circus, we are Not leaving him to rot in some stinky prison!
>>5392766did the newspaper reveal that info, or did the wg do more cover up? question for both quest canon and actual canon.
>>5392769fujitora kinda went out of his way specifically so it wouldn't be covered up though
>>5392771i bet if we do chase doffy down, he's gonna see us and freak out, thinking we're hear to end him after learning about his kingdom. if we dont learn abuot it, it'll be funny.
>>5392771like im still down to break him out still, but just so we can kill him ourselves, since that kinda slavery would be absolutely horrific to silver, like just a step below tamas fruit in terms of slavery since while you're kinda trapped in your body and forced to obey atleast you can still think and feel your own thoughts
>>5392761I don't know, see on one hand a CP0 agent with access to all kinds of top secret nonsense defected and we destroyed their ambush, and island. So it makes sense that our Bounty would get attached to a rocket engineOn the other a CP0 agent with access to all kinds of top secret nonsense defected and we destroyed their ambush, and island. Neither of which I'm sure anyone is particularly keen on actually admitting ever happened. If the government is clever, and that is a big fucking if, they'l wait until we do something. Anything really, blow it out of proportion and use that to up to bounty officially so that they can have their cake and eat it too.
>>5392769That's... an excellent question and I don't think it was ever adressedLike>>5392771said Fujitora specifically said he didn't want it covered up to reveal how badly the WG dropped the ball on that. So... maybe?
>>5392755>>Bah. Who cares?Maybe afterwards we can look into breaking him out.
>>5392778Yeah i think the only thing that would be covered up in the dressrosa incident is doffy being a celestial dragon but otherwise fujitora leaked everything else
i think we do need to decide whether doffys slave nation aspect is written in the newspaper b4 we make a decision on this, since IC that completely changes what silver would do here
>>5392785A little late for that, but either way Silver wouldn't want him in a prison. It's either unacceptable because we like the guy, or unacceptable because prisons are evil and killing someone for doing something you dislike is moral.
>>5392778logically, the wg would want to provide validation for the straw hat bounty boost, but they wouldnt want to share his heroism. Morgans doesnt give a fuck, though. The wg would report on the strawhat fleet and the defeat of doffy, and fuji+ morgans would put in slavery and general "how fucked dressrosa was" for the sweet views
>>5392787Well i agree, like if the slave nation aspect is written in the newspaper silvers going 100%, not actually for doffy though, i imagine silver would do it to kill sugar herself, since her existence is something silver will never accept, plus he'd never allow her power to fall into the WGs hands, since she and the rest fo the family is probably on the same boat as doffy
Well that seems like a support for going after Doffy>writingHOWEVERI'm going to need a dice roll for this one.3d10 rawbest of 3, dc 25, no crit
Rolled 4, 8, 4 = 16 (3d10)>>5392800doffy's day is going to become so much worse
Rolled 3, 3, 10 = 16 (3d10)>>5392800oh man that DC and no mods. Fingers crossed.
Rolled 3, 10, 6 = 19 (3d10)>>5392800
>>5392811>>5392810>>5392808Oh that's sad. But it's to be expectedI guess y'all forgot just who tf was tasked with dragging Doffy to Impel Down
>>5392816nah it was gonna be fun to catch up with the granny
>>5392816hmm IIRC aren't we immune to tsurus DF? if so thats 1 of the 3 main threats nullfied, or atleast weakened against us, and sengokus might just choose not to fight at all, could see him sitting back and letting whatever happens happen unless we try and kill some marines, then he might step in
>>5392820We are, but the rest of the crew might not be.
"HNNNNNG! Hook! Map! Get me a map! Now, where is Dressrosa? Which direction is Impel Down? And where are we? Right. They are on this line and we are that way. Alright everyone! Change of plans We're heading in that direction and cut them off!""Are you serious? I just told you that Mama will get mad if we're late!""Once Mama hears of this she'll understand! Now to your positions! And Stitches. I don't want to wait for recovery. I want it now!"While the others were busy navigating the ship you received rapid tissue replacement surgery. After all why wait for natural healing when you can just take the bad parts out and put some fresh ones in? And with some extra food to facilitate your healing you feel ready to take on the world again. Good thing too because as it happens the trail that you found and followed lead you into the heart of a massive and wild storm that seemed intent on stopping your progress."Jaws. I see a rogue wave in front of us. I don't want to."Murray punches a hole into the massive tidalwave that blocked your path and you sail through it. On the other side you see not one, not two, not even three but four fully manned navy warships armed to the teeth with the biggest cannons they could fit on there. A quick lookover with your ears tells you that they have nobody on any of those ships that isn't a marine, save for one."Ya think the Marines finally lost their marbles eh lad? Four ships just to transport a wee man. Lunatics.""Myeeeh. What-what are we looking at here?""Make no mistake gentlemen. That one person they are carrying is worth every precaution. He's regarded as one of, if not the most dangerous of the Seven Warlords. He's the one they called the Heavenly Demon. Donquixote Doflamingo. And may God have mercy on us if we attempt to free him.""You're such a negative nancy Spider! It's gonna be fine! Lookie over there! We even have help!"Everyone looks the way you're pointing and they see a singular ship attacking the convoy head on. This absolute madman is none other than Jack the Drought, one of the All-Stars of the Beast Pirates. A man who is regarded as a walking natural disaster. It makes sense that he's here. Doflamingo was working for Kaido so of course the Yonko would want him rescued. He will serve as the perfect little distraction for you.
>>5392816how about ya boy jack?
>>5392840So whens silver gonna ask jack why he doesn't dry up the ocean to fight better? :V
While the four ships get in formation in order to fend off Jack you sneak up behind them with your ship. With its speed and black paintjob they won't be able to detect it before it's too late. But as you get close to one of the warships you hear a cry loud enough to overwhelm even the sound of thunder."Cavalier you VERMIN! What do you think you're doing here?"Jack roars at you, alerting the entire convoy to your presence."Cavalier? Here?""Oh great.""So we meet again at last.""Thanks Jack..."You grumble as you observe the three heavy hitters that just noticed you. One of them is Fujitora, the man who almost killed you in Mary Geoise who's become an admiral since. Tsuru, the old lady who really should've retired a long time ago and the one who almost captured you that one time. And finally former Fleet Admiral Sengoku himself is here. Great. Just great."HEY JACK! Before you get any ideas I didn't come to mess with you again! You hear?""Get in my way maggot and I'll destroy you as well!"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5XpBd2hp7U"Issho. Focus on Jack and the Beast Pirates. Don't let them board any of the ships!""Understood.""Tsuru! I'm handing over control to you. Coordinate the ships."You mean keep doing what I've been doing? Fine. Fire the cannons!""I'll handle Cavalier."The rickety old man jumps from one ship to the other and walks to its edge so he could face you. He drops a bag of crackers on the ground and transforms into a massive golden man and raises his palm to strike. Not being one to resist a challenge you take flight and go straight at him as he winds up his thrust."Alright! Time to see what you're made of old man! Silver Style: Silver VOICE!"As you gather your strength for one of your biggest attacks he simply lowers his palm and aims it at you. A moment later a golden wave of force is projected from it and smacks you in the face. The explosive force of his attack is so great it not only obliterated your own but it also blasted you right back onto your ship. Bouncing from the deck and hitting the main mast as well you fall down and feel one of your teeth wobbling a bit. After carefully touching it you felt it falling out without resistance."Ugh. Grampa hits different.""I've been waiting over two years for this moment. Come Cavalier. Fight me. If you're not a coward.""WHAT?!""He's goading you captain.""I know Angel but-BUT-">Ugh. Fine. We're clearly out of our depths here.>BUT HE WON'T GET AWAY WITH THAT!>Other?
>>5392853>BUT HE WON'T GET AWAY WITH THAT!
>>5392853>jaws want to start sinking a few of their ships while i bully the elderly?
as fun as a fight sounds, he's clearly proven his superiority, and our goal isnt to dunk on the marines, this time. If we can distract him and get to doffy, we win. Try to laughing bomb the waters and have jaws get us to the otherships, maybe?
>>5392853>Other?Fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine, Silver won't fight seriously, just distract the old man for Jaws and any others to sabotage the other ships where possible.
>>5392853>grampa hits differentbruh...
>>5392868>>5392862>>5392885>>5392877This hare-brained scheme seems to have wonVery wellRoll 3d10+3Best of 3DC 25, Crit 30No update will follow however as it's getting very late. Instead I'll start with the results of the roll next timeGood night. And see you guys later
Rolled 6, 4, 9 + 3 = 22 (3d10 + 3)>>5392895At least we got a mod this time
Rolled 1, 9, 3 + 3 = 16 (3d10 + 3)>>5392895
Rolled 1, 4, 2 + 3 = 10 (3d10 + 3)>>5392895Fuck our luck
Damn we really need to do something to get ourself a bigger mod, it feels like its been forever since we passed an actual important role, thing is besides getting control of our awakened form no idea what we could do to get bigger mods
>>5392919We're sorta vaguely on the cusp of awakening our Devil fruit iirc. So hopefully we can work on that sooner than later.
>>5392919Clearly we haven't been fighting enoughthe issue isn't big modifiers, it's being strong enough that the DC is lower by defaultWe need to go on a rampage. A long, sustained, unreasonable rampage with little purpose other than picking a big goddamned fight.
>>5392926we will need a mid adventure training arc at this rate like luffy got to get more gains. and the training session was not a good part in wano.
>>5392951I mean i'd say even rn luffy beats us, i don't see us beating him in gear 4 atm, once we have control of our awakening we probably pull of the win but even then the problem is that luffy has way more ahead of him, getting all the advanced haki where as we'd probably could only get advanced conquerors and observation considering we're practically a cripple at armament and then he has his own awakening
>>5392968like im genuinely trying to think of anything we could do to boost our power besides the things stated above, only way i can think to upgrade our equipment is if we somehow manage to give them DFs, since our armaments crippled so not shot of us turning our sword into a black blade
>>5392982I think Sleepy has implied in the past that we're going to do the same Conc Haki armor thing that Kaido does.
>>5393016>sleepyGoddamnit,I meant Spooky. I should probably go to bed.
>>5392919>>5392926>>5392968>>5392982In all honesty, I like our abilities better. Luffy's shit is literally punch harder/faster/wilder. And tank damage.I think our power is more closely tied to observation and the voice of all things. I mean bats use echo location to find their way, and technically all matter is vibrating in one way or another, so our power is almost clarity of vision. We can see and hear what other's can't. Every armor has it's gaps. If we can't win change the game.
Damn dudes I missed the last thread and I thought this quest died holy hell.
>>5393199spooks was on vacation
>>5393205I know. I went and found the previous thread when I realized in the opener I was missing some stuff. Wild ride. Goddamn triple 1, whew. I'm glad no one suggested to fuck the clown when roided out, very mature of everyone.
>>5392919>Goes into the real bigleagues>Man this is a lot more difficult then the kiddie poolTho I will remind you that we manage to not lose horribly to Katakuri and help up hungry Big Meme for a while, Silver is not a light weight. He just isn't on par with the proper monsters, yet. >>5392951Fuck no, that was the dumbest thing OP did and we earn our damn medals like pirates: By stealing them from someone else!>>5392982Sustaining multiple transformations for more then five minutes, firing a laughing bomb out of Parley (it makes anime sense, alright?), combining Melchanims fire with the Silver Style to create fire that has physical force/weight in it? Hell, heat is increased movement and so is vibrations so it should work together!We're a superfast batmonsterman that can fuck with vibrations and create fire and explosions. If you can't work with that then you need a drink or two in you, hell here is one: A transformation that extends the claws of our batfruit and lets them function as tuning forks, complete with a low and ominous hum emanating from them. >>5393026Agreed, Luffy is boring and wins by having way more hp then everyone.>>5392895I gotta say: Glad you're back Spooks, I actually missed ya and what an absolutely banger of a return it was, just a great session. On the bright side, despite us failing miserably against Sengoku we don't need to win win, even if that would be quite something. Just keep him busy for long enough for either the crew to come help us (and wouldn't that be a fucking scene!) or extract the flamingo... I expect a Tom&Jerry style scene where a saw pops up through the floor and cuts a perfect circle around him.
>>5393215All the female crew mates are good. Marcy, Hagetaka, Lydia, Ann, and Nutmeg (Spooks gave her character the anime never would have shown)But there's something sexy about Clown. Can't put my finger on it. They tried with Nami, but they nailed it with Robin. If any analytical anons want to take a shot be my guest.
>>5393404Lol Silver has caused more headaches for Sengoku than anyone>raided a tax ship>injured Hina (high ranking marine)>Gelded two marine leaders (forget their ranks, one was a giant)>Assisted in the rescue of a survivor of Ohara (Decimated CP9, killed the majority, injured the leader)>Committed a massacre of a noble family (after escaping capture Coyote Ugly style)>Has married into the Charlotte family, upsetting the balance of power>Teams up with wanted criminals (Crocodile)>Is currently trying to prison break Doflamingo (world noble and Shichibukai) at the same time a high level Kaido commander is assaulting themGrandpa Sengoku will kill us just to relieve his headache.
>>5393982My mans wants a woman who can lie to his face. But also tuck him in and read him a story.
>>5394003It's partly due to her not choosing a name. She's undecided. And a girl who's undecided will put her heart and body out under duress. Not to mention she sings a good sea shanty
>>5393999I think you may be forgetting>Kidnapped Dauntyand>Stole our devilfruit
>>5394149Also created underwater ANCAP Island AKA Outer Heaven
Okay I think tomorrow is feasible for a short session
"Alright. New plan!"You say to yourself as you take to the skies again. Floating between yours and the marines vessel you grin at the giant man of gold. Letting out a sharp whistle you fly higher and clap your wings together. As you start falling you pull them apart, revealing a swirling ball of enslaved air and sound. When you hurl it like a dodge ball at the water it explodes, sending vast amounts of water in the air in the form of a pillar. Before it could subside you take off with all your speed and burst through the water with a high octane kick."Silver Shooting Star!"Old man Sengoku is unimpressed by your display and catches your leg with his palm. His body sturdy like adamant barely even budges. Even the massive ship which he planted his feet on only starts tilting a little before falling back in place. They were both built to withstand harder things than that. Before he could close his grasp you kick off of him and fly circles around him. Following you with his observation he doesn't even bother to look at you."Was that really the best you can do-""How about you stick around and find out?""Or did you really think that could distract me from the fish-man you signaled?"You gasp as Sengoku raises his hand."Men! Sea mines!"You see the marines on board hurling barrels full of explosives into the water, some of which quickly detonate due to the proximity of your first-mate. Hearing Jaws scream as the first bombs go off you glare at Sengoku with eyes full of fury. Charging him head on you receive another golden blast of energy from him but this time he sends you barreling towards the waves. As you get submerged you loose all your strength and curse the marine with a lot of gurgles. Thankfully an injured, bleeding but still very alive Murray grabs you by the arm and lifts your head above the water."COUGH COUGH! Jaws!! Are you alright?""I've had worse."He hisses."But I don't think I can board them with only one arm. Sorry cap'n."You glance at his other hand and you see it bleeding pretty profusely with chunks missing from it and a lot of shrapnel embedded in his flesh."No. I'm sorry Jaws. And he will be!""Right. Give him hell cap'!"
With all his strength Murray tosses you in the air which you use to land on the battleship. Now in your human form you stand face to face with Sengoku the Buddha. He scowls at you."I thought you'd have the smarts to run away.""You wish.""Good. It's about time someone put an end to your mindless rampage Rocks. The world moved on and seldom needs a beast of the old age making a mess of things. Tsuru was powerless and Garp, the old fool, could never bring himself to smothering a child, no matter how vile he may be. So in the end it falls to me to put you in your place.""Hey! Big, old, fat and shiny! I don't know what the heck you're talking about! My name is Silver! You should remember that so they can put it on your grave!""Are you now?""What?""Whatever you think you are the truth is that you're just the pale imitation of a dead man made by a madwoman. A weapon forged by a demented individual who hated the new world and couldn't live in it. And consequently Little Rocks you have no place in it either. It was us who buried those monsters. And I'll be damned before I let anyone resurrect those nightmares!"Sengoku takes up a fighting stance and locks eyes with you. This titan who clearly demonstrated that his strength rivals that of the admirals even in his old age wants you dead. But he'll pay for hurting Murray and insulting you. Fighting him however would be... dangerous. It's obvious you can't pussyfoot around the issue. You'd need to bring all your strength to bear. But that could destroy the ship you stand on, the Dauntless and could even eliminate Doflamingo if the worst comes to pass. You could make a run for it and go straight to Doffy in an attempt to break him out. But that'd mean getting cornered by a bunch of marines. Or you could fight in an... indirect manner. He is mighty. Everyone and everything around him is not. But if you think about it carefully there is one more option. He must pay. But not necessarily today. And that'd undoubtedly piss him off.>Fight Sengoku without holding back>Run and search for Doflamingo>Let's see how he likes when it's his pals that get targeted>"See you later dumb-dumbs!">Other?
>>5396362>Let's see how he likes when it's his pals that get targetedGo for the Pidgeon take two, Silver style Boogaloo. In all seriousness tho, leaving Sengoku to kill our crew and smash Daunty is not a good plan. and if Murray is out of the picture, well hopefully Hook and Angel can work their way through the ships hull and extract Doo.A thought strikes me. How much money would one say a chunk of a high end Marine battleships side be worth? Say about enough for a pair of aforementioned pirates to enter through?
>>5396362>>Fight Sengoku without holding back
>Run and search for DoflamingoIf we release Doflamingo, even if we get cornered, we can go all out then
>>5396362I wasn't paying attention. Where are we? on a boat?Fat boy can't swim. Break the boat! Break the island if you have to!
>>5396391I don't think Sengoku would just sit down and have a cup of tea the moment we are out of sight friend, and we are the one best equipped (maybe with some help) to keep him from killing our people and wrecking our ship. >>5396393Marine prison ship, transporting Doflamingo, who we want to save because he gave us a circus, to impel down.
>>5396399Break the fuckin' boat! Whoever can still swim, pull doffy's ass out of the water.
>>5396362>Fight Sengoku without holding back
Uh. That's pretty dividedSo I guess fighting Sengoku wins?Roll me 3d10+4, best of 3dc:25, crit: 28
Rolled 8, 7, 3 + 4 = 22 (3d10 + 4)>>5396427

Rolled 8, 6, 1 + 4 = 19 (3d10 + 4)>>5396427
Bruh>writingtriple fail against Sengoku, what are the odds?
>>5396433Quick math says about 40-45%?
"Kekekekeke! Okay old man! Let's see what you got! But if you lose I'm smashing you to bits! And this ship! In fact I'll just smash everyone and fish Flamingo out of the water after! Because I AM SIL-"Your eyes snap open."-ER! E-Eh?"Looking around the place you see that you are in your room. Outside your cabins window you see that it's the middle of the day and it's perfectly sunny outside."Huh? That's weird. Guess it was all a dream. Oh well. Time to get to- WHOAH!"You fall down face first when you attempt to get out of the bed."Stitcheeeees. I've fallen. And I can't get up!"About half an hour later the others manage to hear your pleas for help because they were busy having lunch and they pick up your crippled rear end from the floor. They seem equal parts relieved that you awoke and annoyed."Okay. How long?""Y-You were out cold for five days.""Huh. Neat. Did we win?""Myeh. No-no brother-friend. You got knocked out. Yes-yes! T-Then the ship grew legs and began punch-fighting!""Yeah. We had to bust our asses to get you out of there! So you better be grateful you little bastard!"Hagetaka nods."But at least we did destroy one of their ships. It's unknown if that enabled the Beast Pirates to do anything else. As we had to run away."You try to rub your eyes as best you can but it's pretty hard with your arms in casts. Finally getting some help from Lyda you lay down in your bed."Hmmmm. Not good. I keep loosing. Gotta figure something out about that. Anyway what's the plan now?""We're heading back to Totland. And you better heal quick. If Mama sees you wrecked like that she might get angry.""Because I lost?""No because you'd ruin the perfect picture of the wedding in her head."Stitches then claps her hands together."Alright everyone! I'll get Silver back on his feet. But he'll need ample rest to do that. Omukade, could you prepare him a liquid based diet for the next couple of days?""Will do doc. Just tell me what you need."As they all leave the room one by one however you call out to one of them."Bullseye!""Huh? Need something bro?""Yeah! Get me my weapons!"You point at your tools of war that are sitting in the corner and have the boy lay them on the bed next to you."Thanks Will.""Is that really necessary?""It is Stitches! Now please heal me!"
Damn, have we won any really important fight since the timeskip? and like im not talking katakuri where we managed to get a symbolic victory where we knocked him on his back but like a genuine victory against someone worth a damn
>>5396495every DC is a 28, what can you do
>>5396495we beat ivankov, after losing, and we didn't kill him
>>5396498I mean even with ivan i wouldn't exactly call him someone worth a damn, even with what the QM said about when he fought an admiral he more just survived against an admiral through fighting smart IIRC, and even then in our fight where we "won" he wasn't actually that hurt when he retreated, he just ran after seeing our massive attack, but realistically probably could have kept on fighting there, of course i might be misremembering here
Cause like at this point are performances are just embarassing really, like silver talks alot of shit about how he's gonna be the strongest and what not but the minute it comes time to back that talk up with some action he immediately gets stomped hard, and it'd be one thing if that bothered silver IC and he actively tried to make sure it didn't happen again but he just doesn't seem to really care, which seems weird with as said all the talk about being strong and what not
The next week or so passes by in what feels like a heartbeat. Other than eating whatever meat slurry or soup Toxin cooked up for you and sleeping you didn't do much else, even allowed Lyda to work on you without as much as a yelp. According to the good doctor it was quite unnerving how you didn't react to anything and didn't even blink the whole time she was working with you. But by giving your body some actual downtime it could heal itself properly and by the time you entered within the boundaries of Mamas territory Lyda could remove your casts without any issues."Alright. Try standing up now!"Without the aid of a crutch you manage to get out of bed and not only stand but walk perfectly. Lyda shakes her head."If only I could figure out how your body works I'm certain I could find a way to heal any injury. But now I'm also convinced your healing factor is powered by sheer stupidity.""Well it's not like it's perfect."You retort as you pot on your shirt and start buttoning it up, covering the uncountable number of battle scars you've earned over the years. They are good reminders though. Of the times things didn't go exactly according to plan, or did and there was just no better alternative. These last couple of defeats also remind you of those earlier times and make you smirk."Anyway it is very handy that I can get myself back into fighting condition like that. Now just gotta make sure I won't have to use it again! Though I probably will! Kekeke!"You step out onto the deck for the first time in over a week and smell the fresh, overly sweet air of Totland. After making your way to Wholecake Island you are greeted by a small ensemble of Big Moms underlings who offer to take you straight to her chateau, they even brought a plus sized carriage just for Greki."Greetings Captain Silver!"The chess piece bows to you."Mama is waiting for you. Please come with us.""Uh-huh. Quick question. Are the Germans here?""I'm afraid not. Our esteemed guests have not arrived yet. Though they did send a message that they are nearby. They just want to wait for the remainder of their kingdom so they could arrive at the same time. Now please come with us-">Yeah okay.>Mama can wait a bit more. I'll go and say hi to my bros>Other?
>>5396495Dice do be a bitch sometimes
>>5396512>Yeah okay.>Give mama a hug
>>5396513Yeah dice can be a bitch, but IC this massive L streak silvers been on seems like something he'd atleast put some thought into somehow stopping, cause rn he seems pretty content being built like a side character
>>5396512>Yeah okay.>>5396511So I'm gonna say that I quite like that we're getting our shit kicked in by the big names out there, the New World is supposed to be scary. It's supposed to be dangerous, and if we'd win all the time that just wouldn't be the case. And we have a few wins and more importantly hints of proper strength: the island buster we pulled against Ivankov and the monster point transformation. There is room to grow. That said you may be right, in that while I don't think Silver is capable of doubt him wanting to do something big and flashy and impressive to compensate does sound about right.
>>5396527Yeah but the thing is theres a bit of narrative dissonance here now, like tons of ppl constantly go on and on about how big of a threat silver is and how strong he is, hell big moms giving silver practically a several mile long leash when she normally just slaps ppl with a collar and holds that, all because she thinks he's strong, and yeah we've done a few cool things but none of them in actually BIG fights, like it'd be like if luffy revealed gear 4 against like baby 5, its still an impressive technique but the fact it was used against someone relatively weak devalues it, idk i just kinda want to see silver get frustrated at this so it atleast feels like its something he'd work to improve and stop, but rn it doesn't seem to actually bother him or motivate him in any way, like when kaido bodied luffy that motivated him to get better but silvers reaction to all his loses are just "eh i'll do better next time"
>>5396533well we can't just stop the presses just to have a training arc or something, the show must go on
Aww Silver loves his new mom so much he's willing to ignore his brothers in law. How cute>writing
>>5396533Big Mom also called us weak, that we need to "grow up quickly". They didn't say "wow Silver is going to wreck everyone he comes across" they all say "Yea if we let this fucker live he is going to wreck everything in a few" Yea I agree that it causes a moral issue for Silver as he *needs* to be the most dangerous person in the room to feel safe and to justify his actions. You also gotta remember that Silver ain't reasonable, I think it was Spooks who once compared him to the "If we win, we win, if we run away we didn't lose cause we can always come back for annuva go!" mindsetYou want to "improve" alright, I'm with ya. As long as you do it Silver Style!Find a dragon, impress Spooks and beat the daylight out of it (then steal the pile of gold)
"Yeah okay!"You all get into their carriages and they waste no time taking you to the center of the island where Mamas palace stands tall and proud. The city itself is in quite a festive mood with the people all preparing for the upcoming wedding. Even more than usual the streets are overflowing with color as the citizens decorate their streets and homes. The homies are even more jolly than usual and sing happy tunes about the festivities that are on the way and all the fun they'll have. It almost makes you jealous that you didn't get quite as much attention but you'll be a good boy just this once. After arriving you get out of the cart and address the homie that opened the door for you."Alright. Take us to Big Mom!""I'm afraid sir that Mama only requested Your audience.""Oh. Okay. Nutmeg? Shall we?""Only You Sir. Mamas orders I'm afraid."Looking over your shoulder you see your wife taking a step back."It's okay. I probably already know what she wants to say. You go ahead."Shrugging you follow the chess piece but your ears catch something."This is gonna be so bad..."Taking an elevator up you arrive at Mamas throne room in record time and the homie practically shoves you inside before closing the door behind you. Mama is standing with her back turned to you but she's aware of your presence as the chess piece announced it before. Thus it's only logical that Zeus and Prometheus gasping is just theatrics to amuse her."Oh look Mama! Silver's here!"She turns around with a big, creepy smile on her face."Well if it isn't my favorite son-in-law! How are you doing Silver?""MAMA!"Flying over to her you stand on her shoulder and hug her cheek."Aww. You're just as cute as a button! Let's have some tea and cookies!"A small army of Big Moms servants strolls in and prepare a table for the two of you. Either she has all of this set up just in case she gets the munchies or this is what she wanted to do with you from the beginning. Both are equally likely. But after stuffing your face with sugary cookies and green tea you finally get to business."So Mama. What did you want to talk about?""Oh we can talk about that later. First I want to hear about your adventures. Did you have fun outside?""Sure did!""Oh do tell!"You give her a pretty detailed rundown of everything that happened since you left Totland and she patiently sat through all of it. Few details seemed to surprise her though."Yes. I see. So you had your fun. But it sounds like you had some trouble out there. Like that damn Sengoku. Old man should really just kick the bucket and stop being a thorn in my side.""Eh. It's not that bad.""Really? I thought you'd be more frustrated at your own failure.""Well it was hardly a fair fight.""Oh?""But anyway tell me about this wedding! It sounds fun!""Oh it's gonna be! How much do you know about it?""A little.""Well then-"
>>5396591What does silver mean about it not being a fair fight? like we both had our crews, hell if anything it was slanted in silvers favor since he can fly where as sengoku was stuck on a boat
"The marriage will happen between little Pudding, you've met her before. And one of the princes of the Germa Kingdom!""Oh I know those guys.""Really?""Yeah... we met at sea. I liked their comics. But they uh... they were kinda lame. I get now why they say to never meet your heroes.""Oh that makes it easier then. And how much do you know about them?""They are supervillains.""Close. Those comics of theirs may be a work of morgans but they are the ones who pay him to do it. It's a nice way for them to mystify themselves. They spun these elaborate tales that are half truth half fantasy. So things get confusing and nobody really knows if they are actually real or not. That and it helps their reputation, which is quite rotten.""Oh?""Indeed. You see. Those fancy-pants German used to be part of the World Government one time. But their king got a bit too greedy and wanted to dominate the whole North Blue and take it for himself. They did not like it. Not one bit. So they got kicked out, their land stripped from them. The Germa packed up their kingdom and now live on their moving sea forts built on top of massive snails. When all their ships come together they reform the proper Germa Kingdom. But as it stands they are not usually in one place."Mama takes a big sip of her tea and tosses several dozen cookies in her mouth."And while normally a kingdom would meet its end after getting kicked out of the World Government they still survive to this day. Thanks to their very advanced technology. But they became shadows of their former selves. Little more than mercenaries and assassins, guns for hire that work for anyone willing to pay. Many times countries buy their services just so the enemy can't.""Neat. So you want to get them into the family because of their science. Right?""Precisely. That Judge, he discovered so many interesting things! But I'm most interested in one particular one. How to grow humans! If I got my hands on that, with my resources I could finally create an army with which I can take over the world! MAMA-MAMA!""So we get to have a party and then the real fun begins eh? Kekekekeke!""Mama-Mama! Indeed! Well it'll take a while before we manage to figure out how exactly it all works. But once we take the Germa out of the equation nothing will stand in our way!"Your laughter stops."W-What?""Hmmm? Oh. Yeah. I forgot. You were not told yet!"Mama grins."This whole wedding is a lie! When the time comes we'll slaughter the Germa! Down to the last man! And then we take everything they have for ourselves! Mama-Mama!"You feel shaken."What? Why? But they are family?"Now Mamas laugh stops and she looks at you with annoyance."Wrong. Not until they marry into the family. And this is not going to be a real wedding. So they won't be part of it. Ever.""But Mama... I don't understand!"
>>5396604Pretty sure germas still part of the WG, since they could go to the reverie, they only got booted after they started shacking up with Big mom
"What can't you understand about that? We'll lure them into a trap, murder them all and take their stuff! It's what pirates do!""But why? If you marry them into the family you'll get their stuff anyway!""Sigh. Because they need to be taught a lesson!"You look at Mamas familiars and their usual cheerful appearance is gone. Their faces now reflect Mamas inner, boiling rage."This wedding was arranged for years now. But that dog Judge kept stalling. He did not want to marry one of his sons into my family and instead searched for some bastard of his to use as a sacrificial lamb! Do you see Silver? The Germa did not come to me in good faith! They only want to use me for their own end and don't show me respect! They just want to use my name so they can safely take over the North Blue! They want to leave my territory and leave their runt with me while they go and fulfill their own ambition! They only want to take and take without giving me anything in return. That bastard doesn't recognize me as his better and thinks he can use me like that! Well I'll show him! We'll destroy everything he cherishes. His kingdom, his children, his legacy! MAMA-MAMA! And when I use his technology to take over the world nobody will even know it was his to begin with! It's the perfect insult!""But... I-""Oh? Oh don't you worry your pretty little head my boy. You won't have to do anything. Mama will handle it! All you have to do is be on your best behavior and enjoy yourself! It's gonna be a party after all! Oh and maybe you'll be needed for security. You know. If some little rats try something. You wouldn't want anything to happen to your family, would you?""N-No Mama.""Excellent! I knew I could count on you! Awww don't look so gloomy. It doesn't look good on you! Tell you what? Once all this ugly business is over and we stuffed ourselves full of wedding cake we can talk about the army I'll give you!"
And that is all I can do for today. Hope you had fun.I'll see you guys on the weekend!>>5396606Oh shit. I just checked. You're correct. Ah well. No biggie. Not like it makes any difference
>>5396621Thanks for running Spooks!
>>5396620Hmm why is silver so upset about this? like i fully expected him to come in and demand big mom to call the wedding off and kill them instead and then be pleasantly surprised when he found out that killing them is the plan, with maybe abit of grumbling about the tactics used
>>5396624Because more family is more good. Why wouldn't you want a bigger family?Also Gu has kind of fallen flat for Poison Pink
>>5396627cause they're slavers?
>>5396629That really wasn't the reaction when we met them tho, it wasn't "You fuckers are scum and I'm gonna start working on that problem" it was "Why would you ever do that to family?" A very similar one to what we're going through right now. There's also the very arguable point that Germa arn't slavers, Judge is. Everyone else is just the victims.
>>5396632I mean if we start going by that logic then we wouldn't have killed the child CDs in marineford, they probably hadn't brought any slaves at that point
>>5396633>Doffy as a 4 year old child asked his father to buy him more slavesAre you sure about that?
>>5396642Yeah his father to buy him slaves, he didn't buy them himself, they were just household slaves he used, so then we get on the question does just benefiting from slavery mean silver would kill you? which murdering the child CD would imply, and by the logic all of germa 66 is on the kill list aswell
>>5396632The way I see it, Silver would love for Judge to get french revolutioned, but he might be squiffy on Pink facing the noose. The others would be a mixed bag, but so far the signs point to them all being weenies and scum anyway.>>5396643Bro the kids thought they should have slaves. Why are you overthinking this? Keep it simple. The kids wanted slaves, therefore they are slavers. So they get the brick lobotomy.
>>5396620I mean, this honestly makes perfect sense.It's a fake marriage, simple as that. She's setting up a trap, and never intended to bring them into the family.Now, if the goal really was to accept them, only to then betray them later, that would be a dick move. But this? This is fine.Nothing to get confused over or feel bad about, we're just fucking them in the ass.That indeed is how pirates do.
silver was actually the ex-captain of the kuja pirates and empress of amazon lily from 3 generations ago all along huhi see
>>5398352What?>>5398257I would say it is a bit of a grey zone, just because while it is indeed what pirates do family is something of nerve for Silver.
>>5398456he means shakky
Okay. That new chapter was baller. So let's continue the thread tomorrow!I was gonna do that anyway but now I'm a bit more pumped
Mama continues laughing to herself while you simply space out. But her commanding presence coupled with her powerful voice manage to catch your attention once she's done cackling."Oh yeah. Silver. Before we do anything I need to be sure you understand the plan. So listen up! When the Germa arrive you will be on your best behavior. Don't do anything to them even if they do something to piss you off! They'll pay for everything. Eventually. But we want them to feel comfortable and not suspect a thing. When they come here they'll be treated like royalty, and their brat will be given to Pudding who'll get him to drop his guard. Everything will proceed normally until the day of the wedding. And only at the very end of the ceremony when they are about to kiss do we act. The Germa goons will not be allowed in so we only have to deal with the Vinsmoke family. The groom will be shot by Pudding, the rest of the family will be captured by my other children and we'll shoot them all down like rabid dogs. They'll be disarmed, trapped and likely very drunk. And we'll have special weapons that'll tear their freakish mutant bodies apart! Mama-mama! If everything goes well you won't even have to do anything! But if things do go south I'll need you to be there and break ANYONE or ANYTHING that'd ruin my plans!"Linlin then leans in closer."Can you do that for me?">Yes Mama! (Agree eagerly)>I'll... try (Agree reluctantly)>I-I can't agree to that Mama! (Refuse)>Other?
The first update may take a while as I got some chores to do. But after that we'll be going at full speed
>>5399703>>I'll... try (Agree reluctantly)
>>5399703>>I'll... try (Agree reluctantly)You know I'm torn on this, so I'll go with the "i'm torn on this" option. I can't point to why it's wrong within Silvers morality, because it really isn't. But it still doesn't sit right, you know?Would be better to just kill them the moment they step ashore
>>5399712I mean we can ask? just straight up ask big mom why we don't just murder them all once they're all ashore
>>5399722You know what, this is a good point. >Why don't we just ask Big Mom we we don't just murder them once they're all ashore!>>5399712Former vote
>>5399703>Why don't we just kill them when they all get here? i can't imagine them being strong enough to even challenge katakuri let alone you, atleast from what i felt when two of them were on my ship
phewturns out I could easily finish my chore in timecrisis avertedanyway, I see what you're sayingjust to avoid voting for the same thing twice are you all okay with reluctantly accepting after asking for her reasoning? feel free to post if you want a reroll or not>writing
>>5399738Sure bossman, I can see the logic behind that.
"Erm... Mama?""Hmmm? Something wrong?""I'm just wondering why go through all this? Why not just kill them outright when they arrive? Why lie to them about making them f-family? I'm sure you alone could do it. Not to mention Katakuri and the others. So why?"She glares at you for the first time in a way that could be interpreted as anything less than entirely positive. Annoyance, or more like mild frustration perhaps. Linlin then takes a deep breath and in a condescending tone tries to enlighten you a bit."Silver, Silver, Silver. Come here. It's all very simple you see. The thing that we want from the Germa Kingdom is their technology. Which is all located in their fancy castles. Which might get damaged if we fight near them. We don't want that. And yes, I could crush those bugs. But don't underestimate them. Their infinite army and the Vinsmokes especially, with their modifications would be annoying to deal with. If by any chance we can't kill them in a timely manner they'd just run back home and sail away on their mobile kingdom. In short, we need to eliminate the Vinsmokes far away away from their castles and do it quickly. And the best way to do that is by stripping them of their gadgets and hitting them with weapons that make a mockery of their modifications! And what better place to do that then at a wedding? We'll just strip them of all their weapons for "safety reasons"! Then we trap them with Perosperos ability and execute them! Simple!""Ah. I see now. Sorry for not getting it be-""And then I'm gonna eat all that delicious cake over their cold dead bodies! Mama-Mama!"Of course. In a way the whole wedding is for the sake of Big Mom. Because she wants to have a party. And this is as good an excuse as any.
"I'll try my best Mama. For the family.""Mama-Mama! I'm so glad to hear that."She pats you on the head like some gerbil."Now I won't be holding you up for much longer. Go! Have fun. Say hi to whomever you like. We'll have some family gatherings where we'll go over the details later so don't worry about that. Oh and one more thing. Remember to behave. We don't want to tip off our prey!"You excuse yourself from her throne and find a chess soldier waiting for you. Giving you a salute he speaks up."I hope your meeting went well sir!""Just shut up and take me to my crew.""At once!"Several dozen floors below you are escorted to the hallway where your boys were given rooms and once there you dismiss the homie before gathering everyone for a group meeting. All of them get a bit nervous when they see your face and they realize something has upset you greatly. Once in Grekis room which is the biggest of the lot you knock out every homie in the room and sharpen your ears in case anyone comes to snoop on you before explaining what went down with Big Mom. They are a bit surprised by the whole event being a gigantic trap essentially but it's hardly shocking for them."Huh. I've never seen a whole noble bloodline slaughtered like cattle. That'll be fun.""HOOK!""What? Don't tell me you feel bad for those pricks? Remember what that one asshole was like? I say good riddance. This might be the first case in the history one of the Yonko will objectively make the world a better place. Nothing of value will be lost.""MARCELLA!"Gu smashes his fist down on the table."Do you hear what you're saying? She's inviting a whole family in good faith to her home! To her family! And then she'll betray that trust by shanking them when they least expect it! That's only what the lowest of scum of society would do! Those whose hearts and souls are putrid and rotten to the core!"You sigh with relief as Omukade manages to kinda put things to words that you can't. Only for him to ruin it a second later."SIlver! I beg of you! You must plead with Big Mom to spare Poison Pink! The rest don't matter! You said they are all soulless slaves. They and their heartless overlord can go but she has WORTH!"The others also start discussing things and noise fills the room. But their opinions are largely the same. They are either ambivalent or are fully in support of Mama killing the Vinsmokes, even if it somewhat bothers a select few of them. Only Nutmeg doesn't say anything until things calm down."Silver. I know this must be upsetting for you. But that's just how Mama, no, this entire family is. She's never done such a thing before. But I'm not at all surprised by it. And it sounds like they did much to earn her ire like that. But please, even if you dislike it you mustn't do anything harsh. Do you understand that?">"Yeah. I do. Don't worry. Not that dumb.">"I'm gonna head out. Need to clear my head...">"No! This is wrong!">Other?
>>5399779>>"Yeah. I do. Don't worry. Not that dumb."The boy CAN learn!
>>5399779>>"Yeah. I do. Don't worry. Not that dumb."Just be subtle about it for once!
>>5399779>"Yeah. I do. Don't worry. Not that dumb."No way silver would say "No! this is wrong" at this point, if he was gonna it would have been to big moms face
>>5399779>"Yeah. I do. Don't worry. Not that dumb."i still think it's not the same as betraying them after a genuine marriageit's literally just a trap
So if we do actually decide to go through with this what will silver reaction to sanji be? like i can't imagine he'd be fine with killing him because sanji is robins friend, so it'd be a that point silver would have to actively work against big mom or ask if sanji could be spared, and well it'd be up in the air if she'd agree or not
>>5399779>"Yeah. I do. Don't worry. Not that dumb."
>>5399779>>"Yeah. I do. Don't worry. Not that dumb."
I mean we could just kidnap Pink beforehand, or during the wedding. I'm sure we can think something up>>5399795A strong "meh", Sanji is a strawhats and those guys are all dicks. But they're not "kill on sight" kind of dicks until they start trying to hurt our (adopted) family. Then they're gonna get hurt. >"Yeah. I do. Don't worry. Not that dumb."
>>5399795It's gonna be kinda half and half.On one hand yeah he's on the chopping block but on the other he's not a weenie. Silver would expect him to have some way to survive on his own or at least be smart enough to make it out once he realizes it's a trap.The other Vinsmokes he'd just write off because aside from Pink they're either tools or slavers. And even Pink is only semi-free enough to be a wonky tool.Also he's Luffy's crew and therefore his responsibility.
Alright. No mystery encounters for you>writing
>>5399812I mean i'd say silver would consider robin a friend and someone he cares about
>>5399827I think so. If not a friend then at least a fond acquaintance.
>>5399827Yea, sure. But last I checked her and sanji are indeed different and distinct people?
>>5399831Yeah but sanji dying would make her sad, therefore something silver would want to avoid since he cares about her
>>5399832That feels a bit too removed for Silver to care THAT much about. If it was Silver's crew member being sad yeah sure.But she's in Luffy's crew and her sadness is Luffy's responsibility.
>>5399839So is his safety.
>>5399839I mean we looked after the entire straw hat crew as a favor to a boat we literally met and befriended in like 2 minutes
>>5399846Boats are different.
It takes considerable effort on your part but you rein in your feelings on the matter."Yeah I do. Don't worry. I'm not that dumb. What Mama wants Mama will get.""We'll have to see about that-""Greki!""Sorry Miss Silver. But it's the truth. Even if he says so the cap'n has problems with subtlety. It's just the truth.""Myeh. Me-me has a question. What-what are you talking about?""Nothing Dexter."You shake your head."But I'll need one of your strongest potions to sleep tonight.""Normally me-me would say my strongest potion-drinks would be too strong for you. But I trust brother-friends ridiculous-mad tenacity. Me-me will see what me-me can scrounge up.""Thanks. And Gu. I can't make any promises but we can give it a try at least. Maybe Mama can be convinced."Omukade doesn't seem too reassured by this but it's not like he has much of a choice in the matter. Even he realizes that the Yonko are not to be trifled with, even if he has qualms about her plans. But with that settled you cut things short, stating that you feel like you need some rest and move to your own room with Nutmeg. After getting some of Dexters extra hard moonshine you drink yourself to near oblivion and get to bed. But your wife lying next to you senses the tension radiating from you and she tries to do something about it while you stare out of your head."Silver-""Yes?""Are you asleep?""No.""Sigh. Listen. I just want to know what's wrong. You're clearly upset. And I want to help. But I can't do that if I don't know what your problem is. Can you work with me?""No. I can't explain what it is that feels wrong about this. I can't find the words. But I don't want to cause problems to the family.""And yet you still feel upset about something."She turns to the side and wraps her arms around you, pulling you closer. Hoping that the comfort she provides at least eases your frustration. She cuddles with you for a while before she nervously speaks up."Listen I... I can't fully say I've figured out how you think yet. But I got a pretty good idea. And... I think you need to know something.""What?"She stops and starts thinking deeply. It must be about something very important because you feel her pulse getting faster and faster."N-Nothing. I'll tell you later. Just try to get some sleep. Okay?"
>>5399859>"N-Nothing. I'll tell you later. Just try to get some sleep. Okay?"
>>5399866baka nutmeg raising death flags
>>5399846That was a one time favor and I don't see any other boats asking us to do it again.
Unfortunately the night brought you little relief. Your mind was too occupied by thoughts you lack the ability to fully comprehend which left you even more frustrated. Thus getting out of bed early you left the embrace of your wife, got dressed and left in search of a solution to the problem. And you got a good idea of what might help. What always does. Violence. If you can't work the intrusive thoughts out of your head you'll beat them out. Thankfully you know just the person to do that.Taking flight you left Wholecake Island. The person you were looking for is hard to miss so you have no problem locating the island he's on even with the many islands that are within Big Moms kingdom. Finding Komugi Island you land atop a hill and the tree that was standing next to you a moment ago flies off from its trunk as it got severed. The figure responsible for it walks up to you."Didn't flinch huh?""No.""Hello brother. Did you come to see me?""Yeap.""How did you know I was awake?""Mister Perfect has to keep practicing."Katakuri chuckles."It's good to see you again Silver. Sorry about not seeing you even though I heard you arrived yesterday. The preparations for the wedding are a nightmare.""It's good to see you again Katakuri.""Hmmmm? Something wrong? I don't think I've seen you all gloomy like that before. Was the meeting with Mama that bad?""N-No. Actually-""Hmmm."Katakuri takes out his watch from his front pocket."I was about to have breakfast anyway. How about you join me and you tell me all about it?"After nodding Katakuri has his servants bring food for him as he erects a shrine for the two of you to talk in. You try your best to voice your frustration to him but you're just as incapable of telling him as you were yesterday. But like the responsible big brother he is he listens intently and nods along the way."I see. You're frustrated about the wedding for some reason.""And I can't figure out why. It feels like it's right on the top of my head but I don't know! And it's driving me crazy! But I also don't want to ruin Mamas plans! AAARGH!""Well-"He sips his tea after eating a giant doughnut whole."-what are you gonna do about it?""I want you to beat me up!"Katakuri almost chokes on the next doughnut he just popped in his mouth. After struggling a bit with it he starts laughing his ass off."AAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA! You're serious?""I want to cool off and that's the best way I know."After wiping his mouth clean and pulling his scarf back up Katakuri glares at you."I have a better proposition for you.""Huh?""I don't know about you but whenever I felt frustrated about my inadequacies I trained. It helped reaffirm my strength and worked out the tension. It could do you some good. And I could use a training partner as well. So?">"Alright. Can you teach me how to use my weapons better?">"Okay. I need help with my fruit anyway.">"No thanks. I just want you to punch me in the face a lot.">Other?
>>5399884>>"Okay. I need help with my fruit anyway."
>>5399884>"Okay. I need help with my fruit anyway."have no idea how katakuri would be able to help us use our weapons better
>>5399884>"Yes, thanks. I want you to punch me in the face a lot."My enemy is my teacher, not my teacher is my teacher. Also sparring counts, right?
>>5399884>"Alright. Can you teach me how to use my weapons better?"
AlrightTraining sesh with Katakuri with Devil Fruits.What could go wrong?>writingNow let's see how it goes3d10+4best of 3dc 17, crit 23>>5399887Well he knows how to handle a spear and has decades more experience than you do
Rolled 10, 4, 10 + 4 = 28 (3d10 + 4)>>5399912easy
Rolled 1, 5, 1 + 4 = 11 (3d10 + 4)>>5399912Holy shit a DC under 20 and a crit below 25. God damn the wonders of having a willing teacher.
Rolled 5, 5, 8 + 4 = 22 (3d10 + 4)>>5399912
>>5399913now just is just the universe taunting our ass, the one time we have a somewhat reasonable DC we get a 28
>>5399918we've gotten some great rolls with great timing before, against Katakuri here no less
"Okay. I need help with my devil fruit anyway.""Oh? What kind of help?""Nutmeg said it's awakening. I went berserk one time and destroyed half a marine fort and almost killed six CP-0 agents."Katakuri raises an eyebrow at that."Really now? Well they do say that devil fruits have a will. Zoans especially. One strong enough that it can even animate objects if you feed the fruit to them. So that's not really surprising. But I've still never heard of such thing. Interesting.""So can you help me then? Since yours is all awakened and stuff.""That depends on your definition of help. No. I can't magically make your awakening complete. That happens on its own. What I can do is help you prepare for when the time comes. And that should help you control it if it ever goes haywire again."Katakuri claps his hands together and the shrine he built dissolves before your very eyes."Alright. Let's lay down some ground rules. You're not allowed to use your weapons. In return I won't use Mogura. The point of this exercise is to build you up, not your weapons. Got it?"You look at your weapons."Is it okay if I keep them on though?""As long as you don't use it then it's fine. Everything else goes aside that. In fact I expect you to use everything. From start to finish.""Why? Isn't that a bit too dangerous?""It is. But it's necessary. The awakening process will not be complete until your mind and body are ready for it, when there ceases to be a distinction between your powers and you."He raises his hand which turns into mochi, falls off his arm and plops on the ground before a new one sprouts from the dough covered stump he had left."See? It's a subtle thing and that makes it difficult. You need to learn that there is no bat and there is no Silver. The two are each other, one and the same. And for that you need absolute control over every facet of it. Not just being able to use it but control it at all times."Katakuri then raises his hands."Muso Donuts!"Two gigantic fists appear behind him from a pair of donuts made of mochi."HEY! What's the big idea?!"He chuckles."This may be just training. But don't expect me to pull my punches too much. I won't kill you. But that's all the mercy you get from me! No pain, no progress Silver! NOW! Are you ready?!"You take a deep breath."My enemy is my teacher. My teacher is my enemy... Ready!"He smacks you in the face."OW!"
Katakuri gives you no room to breathe and doesn't bother slowing down even when his humongous fists start beating you into trees or the dirt so you must fight accordingly. Using the Red Voice and Shakushi in tandem you manage to slide around the incoming punches and make your way to Katakuri. Though he's constantly slowing you down with his unrelenting barrage of attacks he can't actually stop you. Finally reaching him you've readied your fist and you're about to punch him in the face as revenge but he shouts at you."Stop!"Only barely do you manage to grind to a halt mere inches from his nose. Feeling like you just got cheated out of a good punch and like your heels are about to explode from the sudden stop you glare at him."WHAT?!""I told you didn't I? This will be painful. You need to also learn how to control your own strength and hold it back. Not just mindlessly throwing it all on your enemy. Now go back to where you were. And do it again!"You repeat the same process several time. Each attempt is a bit different because Katakuri learns from your last approach and makes the next one even harder. You dodge, jump, climb over, run on and fly above the fists as they come at you faster, in harder to follow patterns and hit you harder every time. But all of that you could deal with. If he didn't make you stop just before striking him each time. Now granted, he could probably still dodge most of those given his advanced observation haki. But that doesn't make it piss you off any less. Finally after he tells you to start over the twentieth time you snap. When the giant fist of mochi clad in black haki comes hurling towards you there is simply no intention in your mind to get out of its way. Frustrated beyond words you swing your hand to swat it away like a fly."Hmmm?"Katakuri stares at you in disbelief.
You did not want to do that. Even when you did you barely realized you did it. The whole thing happened because of pure gut instinct. When the back of your hand stuck the massive mochi your arm swell with strength on the moment of impact. The strength of the Dumahim and armament haki filled the strike so fast there was simply no way to see it without the ability of future sight, as the power faded as fast as it appeared. So if there were any mundane observers around all they would've seen was you deflecting one of Katakuris attacks with your bare hand.You rush towards Katakuri now that you have a clear shot at him. He's so surprised by what he saw that he couldn't order you to stop in time, forcing him to guard."Kaku Mochi!"He puts his blocky hands over one another as you kick him. The same explosive power erupts from your legs and sends him sliding backwards."Silver wai-"But before he could finish you open your mouth and a vortex of swirling fire erupts from it. Following that you run at him again, intent of punching him in the jaw while he's busy with the fire."ENOUGH!"He shouts.At his words a pair of bat wings sprout from your back and they grab the air which helps you stop in a timely manner. Now resting like a spider in its web you look at Katakuri."Again?""In a minute. I think this is a good time to take a break. But we're making good progress. You're starting to get the hang of using every facet of your skills in tandem. Your observation, armament and devil fruit abilities finally don't feel like they are holding each other back. That's good. It means you started integration."He sits down and takes a breather."Aren't you gonna get down from there?""Get down?"You look at your wings and freak out."What? What am I doing? Cool!""Hmph. So that wasn't a conscious move? Good. Remember that feeling. Using your devil fruit needs to be as natural as breathing."
And that's where I'll have to end for today unfortunatelyI hope you enjoyed yourselves and that it wasn't too much of a boreI'll see you guys sometimes next week. Probably on wednesday.Have a good night
>>5399983nah this is good shit, i want even more training
>>5399983We've been in need of a training arc spooky, this shit good
>>5399983I got dragged off before that last post so I couldn't say: Thanks for running Spooks!I like the relationship Silver has with Katakuri, its strangely wholesome despite everything.
So it looks like I'm only gonna be able to run on Thursday and Saturday
>>5403904Where are you running to?
>>5403915The store to pick up some milk real quick :)
>>5403904Running is bad for your knees Spooks, go for a nice jogg instead.
>>5404109just looked it up and the "running is bad for your knees" thing is bullshit especially if you using the balls of your feet.
>>5404244Jogging tends to be worse than running from the way people tend to "hop" as they jog. Lots of impact going straight into your joints that way. As opposed to the forward momentum from running properly.Really it always comes down to "are you doing it wrong?".
SHIT! I was supposed to run today wasn't I? It completely lipped my mind.Sorry everyone. This is not my week. Looks like I'll only be able to continue on Saturday
>>5405076Told you all that running wasn't good for ya. See you on Saturday!
>>5405076looks like you were running out of brain cells all along

Back at the new Marine HQ a tired old man is sitting at the beach by himself. He decided to watch the new recruits to see if any of them have potential. They did not. Now he's sleeping in his deck chair a good couple yards away from it, the faint noise of the drilling instructor only serving to help him sleep. Sometimes he wonders why he hasn't retired yet. The number of fresh rookies dwindles every year as the seas get more tumultuous. There are and always will be kids who want to do the right thing, those that felt the harshness of the world personally and decided to do something about it. But more and more of them get intimidated by the current status of the world and decide that meek submission is preferable. He can't really blame them. The way things are progressing sooner or later everything will escalate to the level they were before. Maybe even beyond that. Weapons and machines are being made to wage a war on a scale never seen before. It's enough to make a man question his own conviction. Why keep going? Because he's a god damn marine, that's why. Always has been. Always will be. And-"Instructor Garp!"There are other reasons too.The snot bubble growing from his nose pops and the elderly vice-admiral gets up."Coby! Helmeppo! How are things? It feels like it's been ages since we last met.""Sorry master! We were just busy.""I heard! Captain hmmm? Not bad for a milquetoast.""HEY! What about me? I've been getting promotions too! Coby's not the only one who's been working his ass off!""GWAHAHAHAHA! I know I know. Don't worry son. We're all aware that Coby wouldn't be anywhere without you supporting him every step of the way. Your daddy ought to be ashamed that his son surpassed him so thoroughly."Garp smiled proudly. His star pupils have progressed so much. Knowing that they started out as human shaped string beans almost feels surreal. Despite Cobys relatively low rank he's still a Marine operating exclusively in the New World and performs far above and beyond what's expected of him with Helmeppo keeping up with him."I'm proud of both of you! But what are you two doing here? I assume it's not just to visit an old fool like me.""We would've loved to visit you Sir but HQ's been working us to the bone lately! One assignment after another with no shore leaves! Even now we only came back to get orientation on our next assignment!"Helmeppo complained."Really? And what would that be?""With the Levely coming up we were ordered to safely escort the dignitaries to Mary Geoise and to act as official liaisons.""Guard duty? Bah!"Garp spat on the ground."I hate that! Those pretentious nobles should learn to take care of themselves finally!""Don't say that teacher! It's our job to protect everyone. Nobles included."
"Hnnng! You're right. But you're still wasted protecting those fabergé eggs! The waters out there are getting more dangerous every day! And they are wasting precious resources by pretending they are important! They could've at least delayed the Levely until things calmed down but noooo! They have to put everyone at risk by strutting their stuff around!"Garp abruptly stopped his ranting and looked quite serious. His exaggerated annoyance, as well as his carefree grin both disappeared."Come on, really? That's what it took?""What are you talking about teacher? What's wrong?"Garp turned around and as he did the two boys saw the white figure that appeared behind him."You know that's nowhere near the most slanderous thing I've said about the government. Or did the big dogs upstairs finally decide that they're tired of my barking? Mary..."Mary took off her mask, shocking the boys who called out to her by name."Greetings. Garp the Hero."Garp folded his arms."Is this how it's gonna be then? Murdered in broad daylight? I heard you guys fubar'd pretty recently and got grilled. But I still held Aegis in a little higher regard than this. Did you guys really get so sloppy? Or did Cavalier kill everyone with an ounce of talent?""I'm not with Aegis 0 anymore."Garp uncrossed his arms and frowned."Girl... What in the blazes did you do?""In exchange for taking the fall for the last mission I got about half a dozen agents vouching for me. And because my security clearance wasn't that high and didn't come to possess any classified information because I was still technically a trainee they allowed me to leave. In exchange for becoming the laughing stock of the government and bringing shame to my name I can return to being a marine.""Mary...""Make no mistake. I did not come to ask for forgiveness Garp."Mary knelt down and placed her forehead on the sand."I'm sorry for failing to meet your expectations."
As she gets back up and turns to leave however Coby stops her."Mary wait! Where are you going?""I said I'm done. I'll return to what I was supposed to do this whole time. Continue the family business. I'll ask for a transfer. To a ship, to a captain, to a fort. Doesn't matter. But preferably in one of the Blues. Maybe I'll actually be of some to someone there. Do some good finally.""You should come with us! Look I don't know how you must feel but I can tell you're hurting. But you'll always have a place with us! I know we've not always seen eye to eye but we're all Garps students. And we all know how amazing you are! Remember how it was when we all trained together? It can be just like that again. We'll not hold joining Cipher Pol against you. Please! You don't have to keep torturing yourself!""That's sweet of you to say but-"As she's about to reject Coby she notices a shadow looming over her. Garp solemnly looks down at her and pats her shoulder."Girl listen. I'm not mad at you. I'm not even disappointed. When you left all I felt was sadness because of the path you chose. Because I felt like it was because of my shortcomings that you did so. Nobody hates you and you failed no one. Not me, not them, not your parents. Because you matter. To us. To those two eggheads back there. Because you're our friend. Please. Come back to us.""Sniff... Madhter!"
Sorry everyone for failing to deliver on the session again!Please accept this omake as apology
Wait so kobys gonna be a guard at mariejois here? is that a change from canon with thw WG bumping up security at CD request after our rampage? since while koby did save rikus ship in canon i don't think he was on actual bodyguard duty, and was instead just out patrolling and happened to save them
>>5405974No. Basically HQ is saying"Look this whole thing is like an invitation for Silver to fuck our shit up. Please don't let him do that"
>>5405979It's practically a fucking invitation for Silver. If he wasn't busy with the wedding...
After sitting down both of you feel quite parched and only after quenching your thirst with some tea do you turn your attention towards what just happened. Staring intently at your palm you're trying to discern what was that profound burst of power that was so great it could derail one of Katakuris most devastatingly powerful attacks. You don't remember doing anything special, neither imbuing your hand with armament nor calling forth the raw physical might of the Bat Fruit. Yet both came surging forth and with such abundance that it surprised even you. All you wanted was punching him and your body responded. But there was also something else, something more."It's not enough...""Hmmmm?""I keep thinking about it but it's just not enough. I know how strong I am. And I also know how much haki I have. It's not enough to move one of your donuts. Not without something like the Dumahim."Katakuri just shrugs as he takes off the biker glove from one of his hands."I'm not sure I agree with that."He says as he's rubbing his hand, which is clearly a bit red and swollen."Are you hurt?""Just bruised. That wallop packed quite a punch.""Why don't you just heal it?""Can't. When I use Muso Donuts I guide it with my hand. The same feedback that allows me to feel the hands also transfers damage to the core of my being. Not even a logia user can undo damage like that. Even if I removed this arm like I did before and made a new one it'd still have the damage applied to it. Best I could do is rearrange my mochi body to move the damage elsewhere."After putting his glove back on Katakuri crosses his arms."But you're right. Something is fishy.""You think so too?"He hums in acknowledgement."Your armament is still of inferior quality to mine. And while you're still bizarrely strong physically I don't think it's enough to pierce my armament so... cleanly."He raises his hand and clenches it."I didn't feel you overcoming my defense and damaging me despite of them. It was more like my armament failed. Like suddenly there was a chink in my armor through which your power could pour in.""Hmmmmm.""What's with that look?""Nothing. It just feels like this isn't the first something like this happened.""Really? When was the last time?"You shrug."Sigh. Anyway I think that's enough business for a bit. Let's just lay down for a while. Then we can get back to punching each other."
"Okay."You lay down on the grass and to your surprise Katakuri does the same. The two of you cloud gaze for a while before you finally speak what's on your mind."Aren't you worried people will see you laying on your back?""Don't care. What I do in my time is MY business and if they don't like it they can shove it!""Hmmmm. Is that Perospero I hear coming?""WHERE?!"Katakuri jumps up and starts sweating."KEKEKEKEKEKEKE!""QUIT IT!"BONK"OW!"After hitting you on the head a swelling the size of your skull grows out from it. With an exasperated sigh Katakuri lays back down."Well at least you got your sense of humor back. For better or ill. So you want to talk about it?""About what?""The thing that's on your mind. It was clear to see from the tension in your body that something was wrong.""I just... I don't like the idea of this whole wedding.""Hmmm. You have no problem burning entire cities to the ground but this is too much for you? But I get it. Even if I don't share your viewpoint, I get it."Curiously you look over at Katakuri who put both hands behind his head as he's gazing at the clouds."You value the concept of family the same way I value my own family. If someone used my brothers and sisters so callously, as bait then I'd be pretty mad too. Few things can drive a man mad like desecrating the things he values.""Then why aren't you?! Mama wants to use Pudding as bait!""The same reason why you shouldn't worry. Because I'll be there and I'll make sure everything goes well."You start delving deeper into your own thoughts as Katakuri keeps going."Remember what you promised me? You said this is your family now as well and that you'll protect it as such. This is all for the sake of the family. Taking what belongs to the Germa will aid us greatly. And not to mention... it'd be terrible if the Vinsmokes became parts of our family. It'd endanger us and put Pudding at a risk. Not everyone should be made part of your family."Katakuri then gets up and extends a hand to you. With his help you do the same and look at him eagerly."Well? Shall we continue?">Hell yeah!>No thanks. I think I better go back and reassure everyone I'm okay. But we can fight later!>Other?
>>5406495>>Hell yeah!I love that we're possibly just maybe low key on the path of couping Big Mama.
Okay. Time for some more training!>writingNow gimme 3d10+4, best of 3dc 19, crit 24
Rolled 4, 7, 7 + 4 = 22 (3d10 + 4)>>5406581
Rolled 3, 7, 10 + 4 = 24 (3d10 + 4)>>5406581
>>5406563if we wanna stay on track with luffy, it is my belief that our best bet is to recruit kaido and big mom as fleet commanders. but we usually do things our own crazy way, so if we spend the rest of the quest as a one crew whirlwind, it'll be just as good
>>5406585>muh nigga wants to literally subjugate two of the strongest people in the worldI respect your balls even if I question your sanity>>5406584Damn. Nice. Looks like Silver is about to put in some work
>>5406588rocks did it once. both of them think we're rocks will recreated. no one has a better chance than crazy ol silver
Rolled 4, 2, 10 + 4 = 20 (3d10 + 4)>>5406495
"Hell yeah! Let's get to it!"You spring back up with enthusiasm but Katakuri quickly shuts you down."Hold your horses.""Huh?""Hmmm. I'm thinking about some alternative ways of training.""What? Why?""You hit like a truck."He rubs his hand that you hit pretty badly before."And you got the instincts of a beast with the tenacity of a wall. So I think rather than building on what you have we should be addressing your shortcomings.""Uh hello? I'm Silver! Did you forget? I'm the best! I got no shortcomings!""Really? How much is 2 minus 3?""Uh...""Nobody is perfect. You know that. Best you can do is put up a facade. But that doesn't mean we can't work on our weaknesses. Now I'm not going to give you math lessons. Rather what I think you need is to learn how to hold back.""You know you're saying a lot of dumb stuff right? How is holding back supposed to help me win?""In many ways. And it's not merely holding back but what leads to it. Control. I think you actually have problem bringing your unnatural strength to bear. But don't worry. I'll help. And once you learn to punch with only as much strength as necessary your endurance will improve even further by not wasting your stamina unnecessarily on fodder. Overkill is fine if you want to make a point. Utterly unnecessary otherwise. Now put your weapons down. You won't be needing them.""No."Katakuri shrugs."You want to make it harder on you? Suit yourself."He then takes out a transponder snail and calls in his small troupe of aides and orders several tea sets of all things as well as a portable stove and enough tea to drown Big Mom in. Once they arrive he has the cooks prepare hot tea for him while he instructs you to assume a crouching position. He then places teacups all over your body and orders you to not let a single drop of tea fall out. For an hour."Owowowow!"You hiss as he pours hot tea into the cup on your head."HOW is this supposed to help me?!""Don't talk."He speaks as he continues to fill the cups one by one, utterly disregarding your pleas."There. We're going to have a nice tea time now. And if you spill even a drop you have to start all over again."You glare at the trays of biscuits that the cooks bring in front of you."Can I at least have some cookies?""No."Despite Katakuri infuriating you it's probably smart to do as he says. So that's what you do. And at first you screw up the "training". Badly. And after each scalding you have to go back and start all over again. At some point the thought crosses your mind to use armament to make the tea heavier so it doesn't spill so easily but you perish the thought. That'd be cheating. So after trying many, many, many times you finally manage to nail the process down and your body become still like a rock.
As Katakuri finishes the final cup of tea and puts it back in your palm he gets up from his seat and starts clapping."Impressive. You managed to grasp it faster than I expected.""Grasp what?""Center of balance."He extends his arm and Mogura, his spear pops out of it. Using its shaft he hits you on the stomach with it, making your whole body shake. But thankfully you can adjust your body so none of the cups fall off. Though you do give Katakuri a menacing glare."Once you manage to get a proper feel for your body this way you could walk even on the most treacherous terrain due to the extreme level of control you have over your body. But more importantly-"He uses his mochi powers to take all of the cups off of you and finally you can relax your posture."-try throwing a punch now."You take a swing as instructed but instead of the usual haymaker you throw out a much more focused punch and see Katakuris jacket fluttering a bit as the gust of wind hits him."Whoa.""You feel that? Before your attacks lost a lot of their energy due to how sloppily you threw them. But now you can feel the energy flowing from one part of your body to the other so you correct it subconsciously."You're not sure you get what he means because he's throwing around many big words but you do feel the difference. You could achieve the same destruction with a lot less effort like this. Or a lot more with the same amount. Either way, this seems like something you'll have to keep practicing."Kek! Thanks Katakuri! You're a big bastard sometimes but you're cool.""Hmmm. I'm glad you see it that way. By the way, may I ask you something?""What?""Why did you insist on not removing your weapons? It would've been a lot easier that way.""Oh, that? Just a little thing I'm trying. I'm experimenting!"You draw Argent from its scabbard and toss it over to him. He catches it without issue but notices something weird about it."This is-"He's looking at the blade which is coated in armament. And it's not going away even after being separated from you."-a black blade!? How did you?""I got my butt kicked by the Marines a few days ago so hard I couldn't move. So I kept them near me and pumped all of my haki in them. I only stopped when we sparred. But after doing that for days I can just keep it in there. See?"You show off Parlay as well and it too shines with a black tinge."Look what I can do now!"Glaring at the sword you make the black color disappear. The same happens to your jezail and you feel the haki you've been committing to them free up. With a bit of effort you coat your hands in it and note that the energy flows much easier throughout your body. Katakuri chuckles."Impressive. And what good does that do?""I got no idea but it's interesting isn't it?""I suppose it is. Anyway I think that's enough for me. Got official business to attend. Need to meet up with Pudding. You want to tag along?">Sure!>Nah. I better go back now>Other?
>SureHmm, suggestion for the Wedding if we are going.Since we don't like Sanji's abusive family, how about we kill off most of them, but leave Reiju alive like Guru wanted.And we can convince Big Mom with two simple reasons.A. She needs someone to teach them how to use that Germa techB. Reiju and Guru could make her a poison cake like she wanted.Thoughts?
>>5406625>>Nah. I better go back nowWe gotta meet with the megs and news
MORE Katakuri time>writing
So btw, I was having a problem with 4chan where I couldn't post anything.Anyone else suffer that recently?
>>5406678Hmmmm. Since when? It's been bugging out for me for 2 weeks now.
>>5406682I tried posting yesterday or the day before in this quest, but it wouldn't let me. Like there was no option to do anything. The Post function was completely gone.
Hmm spooky i've been thinking, has there been any major canon divergences with the straw hats since they have had jimbei with them since the start? like jimbei being there causes some sort of domino effect so something is gonna have a ripple effect, or is it all relatively minor changes that won't really affect canon like them just having an easier time in general
"Sure!"Following that you went to the port and took a ship to Cacao Island. It boggles your mind how this could be considered an adequate transportation system."UUUUUUUUGH. Are we there yet?""No.""Are we there yet?""No.""Are we-""If you ask that one more time I'm drowning you.""You DO realize I can fly right? And where is Brochure? Can't she use mirrors to take you there in an instant?!""Her name is Brulé. And no. First off she has her own things to do. She's not just some glorified taxi service. And second even with the mirror world it takes time to travel. Regardless you need to learn how to appreciate taking things slowly and how to not be an annoying brat!""Bite me.""W-was that a jab at my appearance?"After about thirty minutes you arrive on Cacao Island and get in a carriage which takes you to the center of the town where Puddings café operates. Along the way you spot something quite peculiar which you haven't observed before in Totland. A black, shadowy creature is making its way through town, carrying little baskets in its blobby hand. Everyone, including homies give it a wide berth and allow it to go undisturbed. But the citizens seem a little nervous about its presence. They don't fear it necessarily but there is an air of doom and gloom around the place, like they just spotted an ill omen of some sort."What is that?""An incarnation. A piece of Mamas soul animated. Like Zeus, Prometheus and Napoleon except they are much smaller fragments and aren't possessing anything. You don't need to worry about them.""Why should I worry?""They are tax collectors.""Ah. That explains it. Also, ugh. I hate taxes!""You operate an entire island...""Yeah. And I collect rent! If I wanna steal something I just take it. Not make up some stupid roundabout way to do it and give it a different name!""You're one strange individual."As your cart stops in front of Puddings little shop you hear the sound of two people talking coming from within."Shaaaa. I envy you Pudding. Only sixteen but you already get to marry. Sniff.""Oh come on Praline, not you too! You know full well that-"You stroke your chin."Looks like she got a guest.""You can hear that? How good are your ears?""I have to tune out most things if I don't want to go crazy."
>>5406708Funny you should mention that...aside Praline there are. Like everything being even more of a cakewalk than it already was. Even Dressrosa went much smoother for them
>>5406712Hmm wonder if jimbeis gone with the wano crew or if he's gonna be part of the rescue operation
Yeah, but how they gonna get an in with Bege if Jinbei has not left too Join Big Mom.He has no way of acting behind the scenes since he doesn't belong there.
>>5406725Trust in spooks and be rewarded
>>5406725I mean the Strawhats are going to find a way to get involved, Bege or not. It could be they come in with a bunch of outsiders and just try to do some goofy bullshit. And then Bege tries his plan in all the ruckus. Who knows?
Well i think luffy will actually try to fight bege aswell here, since without jimbei that means pekoms is actually dead once bege kidnaps and interrogates him, so if luffy finds that out bege will be on his shitlist
>>5406740That brings into question, what changed? Did Bege go to Zao with Sanji or stay in Dressrosa too deal with Mingo.Is he on the Sanji retrieval team? Or he somewhere else?
>>5406744That remains unchanged. He went to get Sanji along with Pekoms
>>5406744i think you mean jimbei, and i think jimbei might be on the wano team, since the wano team were the ppl who stayed in dressrosa and spooky already said he made that arc easier on them and if jimbei was on zou i don't think sanji would have been captured
>>5406755Counterpoint: Jimbe knows we will be at the wedding, and he has met us.
"Pardon for the intrusion."Katakuri apologizes as he enters the shop after knocking."Brother!""Katakuri-bro! What a pleasant surprise!""I brought you the flour you asked Pudding. I hope this is sufficient.""O-Oh? You heard about that?! You really shouldn't have brother!""It's the least I can do for my little sisters. But pray tell, why do you need so much flour anyway?""Well it's no secret that I'm no Chiffon. She's an excellent pastry chef. Far better than I ever will be. But if I am to take over her position as Minister of Chocolate I must at least be comparable to her. So I need to practice making her famous chiffon cakes. I don't want to bring shame on her name.""Hmmm. I understand.""Anyway thank you so much big bro! With this I can-""Hello!""WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT GREMLIN DOING HERE?!""He joined me for my morning routine and we practiced together. Then he decided to tag along with me. It seems like he wants to get to know the family, which is admirable if you ask me.""Oooooh is this table made of chocolate? GASP! Is everything in here made of chocolate?!""STOP EATING MY FURNITURE!"Pudding tosses a knife at your face which you only barely manage to dodge."Shashasha! What a lively one! He's Nutmegs hubby right? And he's still in one piece after sparring with big bro? Not bad!""Whoah! You're Praline right? You're bigger than on the photos. You're like the third biggest mermaid I ever met!""Oh? You met many mermaids before?""All of 'em."That seems to have caught her attention. She quickly starts prodding you for more information and you're happy to oblige her as you tell her about Fish-man Island some more. Meanwhile Katakuri managed to calm Pudding down and now the two of them are also discussing things."Are things hectic here as well?""Sigh. Don't even get me started. I needed to provide so much chocolate to the head chef for Mamas cake... I've barely slept in the past few days.""Yes. Mamas demands don't seem to get any less ludicrous with age. Half of our navy was occupied with raiding islands for rare and exotic resources. We needed to produce so much flour it almost broke Komugi Islands entire economy.""That's what you get when you're trying to bake a cake the size of a mountain.""Yes. That wedding can not come soon enough. Any words about the groom yet?""Oh yeah, actually! Mama sent Pekoms and Chiffons husband to deliver him to the Germa.""Germa? Not here?""You know how impudent those Vinsmokes are. They wouldn't shut up about getting him first. Oh by the way! Wanna see the stupid face of that little princeling? I got his poster right here!"Pudding takes out a piece of paper with a bounty on it."Just look at this lecherous pig! You can practically see the sin in his eyes. Disgusting! Can't wait to put a bullet between his eyes!"Out of curiosity you look at the poster."C-Curly?">"WHAT IS THIS?!">"E-excuse me I gotta go!">Other?
>>5406811>"E-excuse me I gotta go!"
>This is Goofy's Chef>>This ain't good, as much as I hate the Strawhat wearing jackass, I know neither of us would leave a crewmate behind. He's gonna come after him>>>Eat Chocolate
>>5406818>Oh. I know that guy>He gon die huh?>Ya hate to see itProceeds to nonchalantly eat chocolate
>>5406823Nothing. I just thought that was funny
>>5406818Support with an added caveat of >"Sorry gotta take this to go!>Steal the biggest piece of chocolate furniture before you leave and head for your crew they need to hear about this cause this is gonna be a clusterfuckTake it to go chaps.
>>5406811>>5406831I'm in favor. It's too funny not to just grab a chocolate table or chair and run to our crew.
>>5406811>>"E-excuse me I gotta go!"
>>5406811>>5406818>>5406831+1 To both.
>>5406831Second, because funny
So how many is in our crew? Not counting our lobster buddies or Dauntless
>>5406860At least three.
So has Silver seen any movies btw?
>>5406901Not... really. Transmitting sound across long distances isn't a big issue but video is a different thing entirely
>>5406906Shame; could have called Perospero out on his crappy James Bond acting
"Goofys chef?"You start muttering to yourself."Not good. As much as I hate that jackass we're cut from the same cloth. He won't just let this slide. So... he's coming.""Huh? Are you saying something little fella?""U-Uh? No! Anyway sorry for troubling you but I gotta go! By the way I'm taking this!"You start running towards the wall of the house, not the door, the wall. And after tearing the whole thing out of the building you carry it with you as you run towards Wholecake Island at maximum speed while devouring the chocolate. In the distance you can hear some quite furious screaming."HE TOOK THE WHOLE WALL!"The chocolate is good, very good. But it's insufficient at distracting you from the matter at hand. The only thing you can think about is how the whole wedding situation just got turned on its head. You don't like it. Having Goofy occupy your mind for two years was enough. You don't need this at all. Reaching the chateau you try to locate the others but they seem to have gone out. The only one in there is Nutmeg who's apparently with her twins. Kicking down the window to their room you fly in and knock over something that was on the ground."Ugh! Nutmeg! Was your husband raised in a barn? Does he know how doors work?""Yeah! Dickhead also knocked over our board! Now we gotta start over!""Silver? W-What's wrong? What's with that look? If it's about us taking your board games I was gonna return them!"Taking your den den mushi you start a group call and notify the others that you want them back in Wholecake Chateau and you want them now."Sorry Nutmeg. Hi guys. But we need to talk!"A little time later the crew has gathered and they don't seem too pleased about this."Is this going to be a regular thing now? We just can't do jack shit because you'll keep calling us back here? Give me a break!""Silver! Will you finally tell us what's wrong?""IT'S SANJI! Sanji is the bastard son that's gonna marry Pudding!""WHAT?!"Your crewmembers jump up from the shock. Except Gu who only said "Good"."Who?"Meanwhile the Megs and the News are a bit confused."Hnnnng! It's the chef of the Straw Hat crew! He's the one the Germa will marry to Pudding!""Oh. You mean the guys who beat up Doflamingo? Cool. Why do we care?"Murray starts rubbing his temples."It's complicated. We kinda know them. And Silver kinda has a love hate relationship with their captain.""Yeah! I love to hate him!""You know what I'd love?"Marcella chimes in."If you either killed or fucked him already just so we could move on with our own lives.""No! Listen! This is serious! They are gonna come here, they will cause trouble and they'll definitely ruin the wedding.""Come on bro-"Newgo speaks up."Nobody would be that stupid. Not even for a crewmember.""HE IS! AND I KNOW THAT BECAUSE I WOULD!"
>>5406918>"HE IS! AND I KNOW THAT BECAUSE I WOULD!"And it was in that moment that they learned just what kind and level of stupid Big Mom just inadvertently fucked with.Shit is about to go down.
"E-Erm. So... what do we do now?""Simple doc. We let him die. One less crook in the world.""My apologies chef. But I was under the impression you were literally crying as you worried about the safety of his sister. Now you'd throw her brother to the sharks?""Hagetaka, listen, I admire Reiju. But I'm willing to make a sacrifice for the greater good. You should all follow my example.""Technically we became enemies quite a while ago. When Silver allied with one of the Yonko in fact. It's a sad state of affairs but this was inevitable really."Ann also makes her point.The Decuplets, despite everything you've said up until now are still not convinced about the severity of the situation. And your crewmembers are busy discussing Omukades hypocrisy, leaving you alone with your thoughts with only Nutmeg and Shelley paying attention to you."Daddy?""Silver?"You're holding and scratching your own head as thoughts overwhelm your mind. You thought the sense of unease you felt about the whole assassination came back with a vengeance. On one side you have Big Mom, your allegiance to her, the family and her despicable plot. On the other a group that is no longer just a collection of soulless monsters fit only for destruction, but a person you're acquainted with. And though you don't necessarily like him or his group as a whole that much this you'd not wish on them. They are the foe, the enemy you waited for patiently so you could have your final glorious showdown one day. But this?"What should I do? What should I do? What should I do?!"Seeing you suffering internally like that Nutmeg stands up."Guys... I'm gonna tell him."Suddenly your crewmembers stop and Greki roars at her."No lass! Ye promised! It was bad enough that ye told us!""Are you blind? He's struggling to digest this! He needs to know! Even if that means him turning on Mama!"You look up from your curled up position."What?""Silver... I know what you're thinking. And that's why I must tell you. This whole thing, Mamas kingdom. It's a lie. It's all a grotesque lie. Every living person that's here is a prisoner. Remember when I said nobody normally leaves this place? That's true. The reality is that everyone can come to live in Tot Land. But once you enter you can't leave. Every six months Mama gives the citizens a choice. Life or Leave. They pay one month of their lifespan every six months. Or they leave. But nobody leaves Tot Land. If you pick leave. You die."You hear a loud booming noise as suddenly things click and it feels like a dam just burst inside you. Things make sense now. How the homies are made, what those "tax collectors" are and why a subtle miasma of fear permeates the whole island. It's not slavery. But it technically is. It follows your principles of might makes right, because people could in theory contest Big Mom. But in truth it's only used to facilitate a system which strips the freedom of everyone.
I just realised Silver and his pursuit of Freedom is basically Eren Jaegar
She's family. But she does things which would normally make her your enemy. You swore loyalty to each other. Yet apparently did the same to the Germa. Would she have done the same on your wedding if it benefited her? A silly question. Of course she would. And with that answer something rings in your head. The one, universal truth of the sea. There is no fair fight between pirates. Everything goes.You let go of your head and stand up, realizing that there is no reconciliation to be had. The rules by which you abide are in shambles. Things you detest mingled with things you love. There is no ignoring it. You need to reevaluate your views on things. On one side you have Family. A horrific, often dysfunctional family with skeletons in the closet that you won't be able to ignore now. But family none the less and you'll stand by it even if you betray your own views. On the other, Freedom. The skull and bones which you hoisted on your flag and will follow to the end of the world. Even if it means betraying your own sworn word and the only other thing you truly value above all else.>I choose Family>I choose Freedom
>>5406948>>I choose FreedomThe time has come
>>5406948>I choose Freedom
Hmm, can we choose both?
>>5406948Ah fuck me sideways. Big Mom's fucked up so hard Silver's brain is back on the goddamn island.>I choose FreedomSilver loves freedom harder than anything else. Freedom was the first gift Eliza gave him, the freedom to think he was actually worth being a person.She also gave him family but more than that she gave him the choice to /choose/ her as family.Either way this shakes down though, this one's going to fucking /hurt./
>>5406955I am ready for the supreme thunderdome that is going to be whole cake island.I wonder if this means we can go hang out with Kaido some more. And fight him, too.
Hmm, don't really wanna fight Katakuri, so should we leave in secret, or leave 'respectfully' like Jinbei did in Canon?
>>5406948>>I choose FreedomThis is kinda painful and I would have loved the time to come up with a good write in if that was allowed... but fuck letting Big Mom poison Silver's idea of how family works.
>>5406970Silver's not a bitch. When he leaves he's going to explain to Big Mom exactly /why/ he's leaving.She's a heartless bitch, but she is still his mother-in-law, just not his ally anymore.
maybe we can do the smart thing and make big mom inadvertently admit that the family doesn't care or try to trade another son and use it as an excuse to act and place kakaburi as the new boss of these croe pirates if he knows given him the choice between his brothers and sisters over his mother he would choose to protect his brothers and sisters
>>5406974To be fair, Silver's "family" have all been people he has chosen. Not those foisted onto him. And as they say, the blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb. Sometimes the best bonds you have are the ones you make yourself.
>>5406976maybe we can do the smart thing and get big mom to inadvertently admit that the family doesn't care or try to eat another son and use it as an excuse to act and place kakaburi as the new boss of these croe pirates if he knows given him the choice between his brothers and sisters over his mother he would choose to protect his brothers and sisters- sorry i my cellphone have autocorrect
>>5406948>I choose FreedomHope we don't lose Nutmeg over this.
>>5406980She loves us enough to stick by, plus she knew what she was getting into by telling the truth.
>>5406980Before Nutmeg knew Silver Big Meme basically said "lay back and think of Totto land no matter what hole he aims for."I don't think she's got a lot of Loyalty to her. Love maybe, but not loyalty.
>>5406980If we do it's simple to get her back. Just kill Mama. She's the only thing actually holding this family together with an iron fist. Ice her and we can snag all the decuplets to bring with us.Katakuri is gonna try to rip our spine out, though. RIP.
Freedom wins with a landslide victory>writing
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVN1B-tUpgsThere is simply no other choice. It was the first lesson you were taught, the first gift you received. It's been with you for more time and will remain even longer. Mama was kind to you but... was she though? No matter. Whatever the case may be, whether she reached out as a genuine act of kindness or if it's just a part of her schemes you are glad for it. But knowing what you do now there is simply no way to keep going with this partnership of hers. Your spirit would scream in agony for every moment of it, never letting you forget your own betrayal of the self."Everyone. Listen to me. I've made a decision. We're staying in Tot Land. And when the Straw Hats come we'll make sure they get back their chef an that Germa blood won't be spilled. As for you not telling me about this and forcing Nutmeg to stay silent. We'll talk about it later..."Newichi chuckles nervously."Hah good one. It almost sounded like you're trying to betray Mama!"You glare at him and the Decuplets all start sweating."You don't like it, go ahead and tell Mama. I'll go with you. But if you want to live for once in your life and not live in fear of your own mother you know my address. It always has one more room for those who want it. If you won't rat me out I'll tell Big Mom I'm leaving the family on the day of the wedding. Not sooner. Or later. What's it gonna be?"The four girls hesitantly get up and stand next to their forlorn sister. The boys however are more reluctant."T-This is insane! We're telling Mama and when she hears this she'll be-""Newshi."Nutmeg looks at her brother."It's okay. I trust him. You can too.""I- We- Ugh... I knew you were gonna get us killed someday."In the end they also cave in and give you a nod."But you better have those spots on your ship ya hear? We're NOT getting Soul Pocus'd! Not even for Nutmeg!""Good. Now we start planning."
Aaaaand that's it for today.I hope you enjoyed it.I'll see you guys next week.And please, someone bully me so I don't forget again.Anyways, good night
>>5407011Night boss, thanks for the run.
all we gotta do is violently beat some sense into Big Mom one whole wano early, but we're probably just gonna go luffy's way and make wano worse before we go past the yonko hurdle.
So if we decide to try and kill big mom want to try and get nutmeg her soul fruit?
I think our best option is to train and grind until the wedding dayIf we are weaker than big mom we are probably going to have to team up with luffyNow do we choose the gym or the library?
>>5407092Why Not both?
Oh hell yes, this wedding is going to be one grand clusterfuck for the ages.Vinsmokes and Strawhats against the Big Mom pirates, Silvers against the Vinsmokes (we do want this Judge fellow dead), Big Mom pirates (since it's treason then), Straw Hats (They will be attacking our family after all) all while trying to chase down Peclo and Du Feld.>>5407011For sure did, thanks for running! Also that little omake with Mary... I really liked it. Got the distinct feeling she's entirely lost and went back to Garp just because she didn't really know what else she's supposed to do now. As always really looking forwards to see what happens next, or just a conversation between her and Garp about us and what she took away from the encounter. Not just "Silver is insane and thinks the world is in the wrong" but also "He didn't kill us, he actively saved us" >>5407092Team up? With Goofy? Why? Where does our goals align, what purpose do we have in common?Silver is pissed at Big Mom *and* the Vinsmokes for abusing his almost sacrosanct idea of what a family should be, so they're going down. But the Charlottes, the people Luffy is going to have to work his way through are still family, we married ínto the family. I can't see Silver just throwing that aside and teaming up with that bastard against his own.
Okay! I think I'm ready to continue.So I'll be doing a short session tomorrow at the usual time slot.Hope to see ya there
Treason. The word weighs heavily on your mind. Those who betray their allies and friends are some of the lowest scum. If done without good reason of course. And technically you were given a good reason. You were lied to, manipulated and your views and values were insulted. Why shouldn't you betray Big Mom? And yet... whatever her intentions were she did invite you to be part of her family, she did give you Nutmeg and she did give you her support.Still the decision has been made. You can not stomach working with Mama any longer. Not without some big reforms, which she'll vehemently oppose. Her children, no matter their thoughts on the matter will remain by her side and will fight you tooth and nail, some more eagerly than others, unless you managed to somehow surpass Mama and usurp her kingdom. You were called many things by many people, smart was not one of them. And even you know how unlikely that is to happen. Not all is lost however. The Decuplets, though hesitantly and with a lot of convincing from Nutmeg did decide to throw their lot in with you on the condition that you give them safe passage to Outer Heaven. Everything else is too murky to make sense of right now.Your crew are understandably nervous. The Megs and News triply so. How could they not be? Making enemies of the Yonko is no laughing matter. Once you throw down that gauntlet there will be no turning back nor stopping until one of you falls. Mama will not settle for anything else. What will you do after you declare war? Do you just continue sailing like nothing happened? Should you hunker down in Outer Heaven? Could the city even withstand Mamas wrath for any extended period of time? Are you willing to endanger the people there? Will they flee like rats on a sinking ship? Or will they betray you in the hopes of being spared from Big Moms ire? Are your other territories and friends safe? What will you do if she threatens one of them?You scratch your head as all these questions and more rush through your head."Sheesh. Waging war is hard..."The only upside that you can think of is that you're not gonna be alone in all this. Straw-Hat is coming with his entourage. And if the news can be relied on then he'll have Trafalgar with him. If you allowed him to outshine you he'll most certainly cause a big enough ruckus that will surely divert attention away from you. Then there are the Germa. Sure, they're weenies according to pretty much everyone but if the assassination plans don't go as smoothly as Mama hopes they could be a nuisance as well. There are many more things to consider but you are already past the limit of how much big thinkin' you can do. Thankfully there is someone who is actually enthusiastic about this and has the mental capacity for it."Any luck or still just pulling your hair?""Oh. Hi Toxin. No. Give me something impossible and I'll headbutt it 5000 times until it breaks. Ask me to do smart things and brain work no good."
"Well good news is that we still have time. When the Vinsmokes arrive we'll have a few days before the actual wedding. A massive event like this takes time to set up. Especially that cake... my god.""Took a look at it. The head chef chased me out when I started mixing my special sauce. Accursed midget. But I won't stop. I promised Big Mom a cake and I'll deliver if it's the last gesture we make. But enough of that.""Found something?""Yes."He takes out an older newspaper, the one that announced the formation of Goofys Goober Fleet."What would you say, what are the odds of Straw Hat bringing his pirate alliance here?""No. He's coming to get back his cook. Not to wage war. That comes later.""Bummer. That's one idea down.""What do you mean?""Somehow those guys managed to get Don Chinjao on their side. Some fucking how.""Who?""He's from Kano. My home. Grand Admiral of the Kano Royal Navy. Which is also a pirate fleet conveniently enough. That hulk of a man is the strongest practitioner of Hasshoken and could split mountains in half with one headbutt. If he came he could take care of Big Mom for us.""I don't think she'd be a Yonko if that was true.""Hmph."Gu swallows his obvious bias and continues."Well anyway, it's a moot point if they are not coming. But I got something else as well. I figured out who'll coordinate security during the party. It's our old friend Bege. And if Marcella could be believed... that perfectly fits his MO.""The what?""The way he does things. How he did his business all the way back in the West Blue. He joins an organization, works his way up its structure and eventually makes a move on its leaders. I doubt he'd have the balls to attack Big Mom. But he seems stupid enough to try anyway. And the wedding is the perfect opportunity for that.""And?""And you got the hearing of a bat. Suppose you eavesdrop on Bege and his gang a little. See if they are up to something. If they are... it could be useful to-"He starts waving his hand around."-temporarily agree to a non-aggression pact. Maybe even an alliance of sorts.""Hmmmm.">I don't like the idea but this is no time to be picky. Fine, let's see what Bege is up to>Let him do whatever he wants. We don't need him. Cause this is between Mama and Me>Other?
>>5411739>Let him do whatever he wants. We don't need him. Cause this is between Mama and MeTraining arc timeLift eat sleep
>>5411739>Let him do whatever he wants. We don't need him. Cause this is between Mama and MeThis isnt some bitch-made coup, this is a polite yet violent disagreement.
>>5411739>I don't like the idea but this is no time to be picky. Fine, let's see what Bege is up to
Well fug.I hate tie breakers but I also don't wanna wait longerSo I'm gonna rule that these>>5411744>>5411754winIf only because of the write-ins>writing
"Nah.""Nah? What do you mean nah?""I mean nah. Let the weenies do whatever they want. We don't need 'em. This is just between Mama and me."Toxin sits down next to you. Well, sit down is a strong word. Collapse is more appropriate. Taking pity on him you pat his back."You're taking this way too seriously methinks. You need to stop thinking about Poison Pink so much.""Sigh. I guess. If even you can see it then I guess I do have a problem. But make no mistake. This has nothing to do with that. I just don't want to loose the single person in the world that I found to have good taste. Call it a... professional courtesy.""Uh-huh.""Hey screw you Silver! You got a woman practically giftwrapped! I just found the one that doesn't melt if I sneeze on her! Give me a break!"After raging a bit more Gu calms down."So if we're not going to team up with Bege due to our shared interest then what's the plan?""That's what I'm thinking.""Uh-oh.""No sense in doing anything until the wedding-""Yeah the Straw Hats ought to be decent Straw Men as well.""So until the Germa show up we got some time. I think it's best if we spent that training.""Sounds smart. Simple but smart. Like the whole crew? When do we begin?""Not yet. I got to attend lunch with Mama.""LUNCH? When?""Now-ish.""Why weren't we told about this?""Family only. Sorry. Anyway I think I'll get going. In the meantime go back to the ship and tell the others what I said.""Aye aye captain. And Silver...""Yea?""Be careful. Let Nutmeg do the talking."You flip off Toxin as he leaves but you admit to yourself that he's right. This meal is going to be atrocious."Well better get it over with."https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kv7fOKgne4YYou take off and fly to a window near the dining room to crash through it. After picking the bits of broken glass out of your outfit you catch up with Nutmeg and you get seated together. Thankfully there is no official dresscode so your disheveled clothes are not a problem. As is tradition you get seated near the end of the table with the others who are only tangentially connected to the family, meaning you're forced to sit very near to Bege. The rest of Big Moms kids are sitting in descending order with the eldest by Mamas side. Which also means you're seated next to a bunch of little kids basically. Still they are Nutmegs siblings. Gotta be nice to them.
Weirdly enough this also means you're not the messiest eater out of the whole bunch. In part because you're actually eating slowly with a fork and knife as opposed to shoveling things into your cavernous mouth. Who you don't have to play nice with however is Bege. Despite never even glancing in your general direction it feels like he's watching you. And once or twice it seemed like he had tiny men in his eyeballs glaring at you.Things proceed rather uneventfully to the point that you're getting very, very bored but Nutmeg is trying to occupy you by gossiping about her siblings. Also you let the little kids use your arms as monkey bars which is also fun. But eventually all of it simply bores you, at which point your brain starts racing again. And one idea in particular does latch onto your consciousness and doesn't seem to let go. Excusing yourself you decide to act upon it.You walk up to the front of the table where Big Mom is currently discussing seemingly important things with her eldest children. Likely pertaining to the wedding and the subsequent assassination. They all stop however when they spot a gremlin (you) approaching."What is that THING doing here perorin? Get back to your place at once child! The grown-ups are talking.""Nonsense Perospero! If Silver wants to say something then he may speak as he pleases. So my boy, what seems to be bothering you? Are you interested in the family business? Do you perhaps want to help us teach those Vinsmokes a lesson?""Eh. Not really.""See Mama? What did I tell you? This little runt is not good for anything! Perorin!""I'm bored Mama. Gimme an island!"Everyone who's been drinking or eating at this moment start choking something fierce and those that were not find their jaws dropping on the table at the sheer audacity at display. Only Katakuri lets out a single bemused chuckle. But all Mama does is lean on the table so she can look down at you from a better vantage point."Hmmmmm? Where did that come from?""I'm bored. I wanna roughhouse to let off some steam but I don't wanna break any of your stuff. So gimme an island.""H-HOW DARE YOU?!"Perospero snaps."You think this is all a game, do you? That everything is just some TOY to be played with, destroyed and discarded according to your whims?! This is our KINGDOM! Our HOME! Getting an island is not a right! It's an honor and a duty! So take your rags, get back where you came from, sit down and KNOW YOUR PLACE!">Okay jeez, I did not know you were gonna be a douche about it>Seriously Mama, gimme!>Other?
>>5411896>>Seriously Mama, gimme!Just cause he doesn't like his island and wishes he had a different one. Shieeeet.
>>5411896>Okay jeez, I did not know you were gonna be a douche about it
>>5411896>>Other?I’ll fight you for your island then
>>5411896>>Seriously Mama, gimme!
>>5411923Calling out Perospero like the bitch he is wins>writing
You try to ignore the candy man as much as humanly possible."Seriously Mama, gimme!""DIDN'T YOU HEAR WHAT I SAID?!"Your patience has run out and you turn to glare at Perospero."So what I'm hearing is I gotta fight you for yours!""W-What?"As you start rolling up your sleeves the eldest Charlotte starts sweating."M-MAMA!""Mama-mama! What's wrong Perospero? Afraid of a little competition? Are you not confident you could take him in a fight?""O-Of course nut! I could take this runt any day! I just thought that his behavior is highly inappropriate and should be punished for it!""Hmmmmm. I agree."Mama shifts her eyes on you."You're not getting any island from me Silver. Not until I've seen your loyalty and dedication to our family. But your impudence is something that I value. Tell you what. There is an island at the edge of our territory. More of a barren rock really. But it should suffice as a little playground for you. So long as you keep your destructive tendencies in check everywhere else. And... when the Vinsmokes show up and I give you the call you better answer. Deal?""Okay Mama.""Good boy. Now run along Silver!"As you leave her presence you hear her groaning."Ugh. Now where were we?"As you get back to your seat you see Nutmeg being very bored as she's not as amused by the presence of the children as you are and so she's chatting up the only other person available for talking."So uh... where did you leave Chiffon?""Hmph. She's in here."Bege taps his chest."As is Pez. As if you don't know.""Yeah... Mama still doesn't like seeing her face, does she? But what about Pez? He's her grandson.""Pez is not leaving Chiffons or my side for even a second! You hear me?""Alright, alright. I didn't mean anything by it. I was just curious.""Hmph. And you? When are you going to get kids?"Nutmeg spits out the water she's been drinking."Or could it be that you are-""NO! No. No. No. And I don't want to talk about that thank you!""Are you sure? Becoming a mother is the greatest thing that could happen to a woman. Or so I'm told by Chiffon. You're not even considering?""Well-""Hey Nutmeg."You step up to her."Let's go. I think I'm done here.""Well we can't leave yet they are only bringing out the dessert now and-"After taking a plate from the homies serving your table you swallow it alongside the food and make a point of chewing it thoroughly."Okay. I'm done. I'll wait for you. Then we leave."
After you've finished eating with the family you gathered up Nutmeg and your crewmembers at the Dauntless in preparation of heading to the island Mama mentioned. As you explain your idea to your friends however one of them has a question."Yes Rat?""What-What are small man-things doing here?""Oh?"You look at the bunch of kids lining up behind you."They were also bored so I asked Mama if I could take them out for uh... adventure. Anyway get your butts on the ship. We're finding this rocky island!"The place that Big Mom so graciously granted to you is, as she said, little more than a piece of dry land with no other value to it. It supports no life and has no resources to exploit either, making it completely useless even as a dry patch of dirt on which you could build something. It's simply perfect. Reaching down you take a handful of soil and let it flow out from between your fingers. Dusting your hands off you look at the others."Okay guys! This place is completely empty! Perfect for cutting loose a little! Now we may have gotten a bit carried away lately, got a bit too lazy. This changes now! We'll start punching each other in the face and we're not gonna stop until the day of the wedding! And this useless rock better sink into the sea before then!"
And that's as long as I can go for today.Tune in next time when we actually get this show on the road with the arrival of the Vinsmokes!Have a good night!
>>5412015How does sea water affect devil fruit users?If we trained underwater would it be like extreme training weights?
>>5412020T-The same way every water does.They get submerged above their knees and it magically saps their strength
Damnit, I missed the entire thing! Still thanks for running spooks, I'm gonna go read what happened now>>5412020Kind of similarly to how being exposed to vacuum affects people, you don't wanna do it for very long. If we trained underwater we'd be dead.
>>5412029yeahit's less anime weighted training and more like submerging yourself in instant cement and thinking that'll somehow make you swole
>>5412045Does it not?
>>5412158No it'll just start to cook you alive. Don't play with instant cement mid mix. It gets hot enough that your body can't regulate temperature properly.
So regarding the next session, I think I can do Saturday.However past that we might have to do some changes regarding our usual scheduling.I'll post more about it at the end of the next run
>>5412564I blame the Turks.
what do you guys think of introducing Rat to Pekoms and have him explain the whole don't look at the moon thing.
>>5413098unfortunately pekoms is or will be sleeping with the fishes and doesn't have a jimbei to pull his ass out, so he's probably gonna die
>>5413098Better plan: We steal the sun and hide it in a deep cave, that way the moon will always be out!
For the next couple of days the seas of Totland became much wilder than usual with great waves of sugary water washing over several islands and doing unreal amounts of property damage in settlements with sea access. It was as if the water itself was suffering damage from the perpetual rampage and that reverberated to other islands. It was so egregious that several parties were sent to check out just what the hell was happening on that island. But the first scout team comprised entirely of homies simply disappeared and was never heard from again. Regular underlings of the Big Mom pirates were next but they had to turn back once they realized the waters were getting too wild as they got close to the island.The only ones with any inkling as to what transpired there were the kids you took on a little adventure. But they proved to be a bit too unreliable as witnesses go since they were barely capable of seeing anything and got bored rapidly so they had to be shipped back home and thus were not present for most of it anyway. The only thing their siblings managed to get out of them was that "it was cool".The truth is much less interesting than what anyone imagined was going on. Every moment of every day was split between three activities. Eating, sleeping and training, whether in an all out brawl, one on one or all against you. For those with less of a focus on direct combat such as Dexter, Lyda or Greki their training primarily involved the fabrication of new weapons and the improvement of their crafts. Only when the Queen Mama Chanter arrived, for no smaller vessel could safely approach the island, did you stop. Baron Tamago brings you an "invitation" in person, really more of an order from Mama to get your butt back home. But his expression when he sees both what you did to the island and your current state his usual calm and collected disposition gets compromised. You see his sunglass slowly sliding down his nose as he stands there with a teacup staying very still in his hand. It becomes apparent that he lost one of his eyes and is now surveying the devastation with the other one."Uh-Erm... Mama asked for you.""The-the Vinsmoke family sent us a message. They are scheduled to arrive shortly. She asks that all of her officers make their way to Wholecake Island immediately."You walk up to him caked in blood and filth to pat his shoulder."Okay. You can go now.""Y-Yes. I think that will be for the best."As he leaves you walk over to Will who's standing at the edge of the island, staring intently at the vast blue waters."Kekeke. He got so scared he forgot his speech impediment! Anyway. What do you see Bullseye?""Snails. The same kind we encountered with the buildings on its back. Dozens. They are merging together to form a castle.""Neat!""Orders?">I say we give them a warm greeting>Let's go to Wholecake Chateau>Best lay low for now. We go to the island but avoid them. And Mama>Other?
Heyo!I noticed that there is a new One Piece quest going on. Has anyone read it? What are the impressions?
>>5413945>Let's go to Wholecake ChateauI'd like to pop over and give them a once over... But I'm kind of worried it'd lead to us murdering Judge then and there, which would ruin the absolute free for all the wedding itself will be!Also gotta love that "Silver is bored" followed by literal tidal waves and storms emanating from his designated "Playground". It's a good look.>>5413947I'd never cheat on ya Spooks, you know that.
>>5413945>>Let's go to Wholecake Chateau>>5413947Our main character has gamer powers and interacts with the world like it was an RPG. Pretty enjoyable so far.
>>5413945>Let's go to Wholecake ChateauLet the games begin
>>5413956Probably smart not to intercept them early and blow your load>writing
You turn your cheek and aim one of your ears at the sea and hear the sound of heavy machinery moving and conjoining to form something far greater with the pitter patter of thousands of legs on top of it. Just the thought of tackling all that and beating them into the sea floor with their own country makes you grin. But that's probably not a smart move for now."Let's get cleaned up. Maybe have Spider make us some fresh clothes. Gotta look presentable to the nobles!"Will cracks a smile."Aye aye!"After getting prettied up on the way back you set foot on Wholecake Island and take a carriage to the Chateau with everyone else. Things seem to be frighteningly calm at the palace itself. Most likely things have been ready for hours now and all that's left for the staff to do is wait with a bated breath. Making your way to the garden that was set up to welcome the guests you take a little time to admire the decoration when a clearly agitated Big Mom storms in."SILVER!""Oh hi Mama.""What are you doing here?""You called for me. So I made sure to arrive early.""Don't get me started now boy! I'm pretty agitated already! Get out of here! This is not for you.""I'm confused. I thought you wanted me to be here.""On the ISLAND! After I'm done with the Vinsmokes we'll have a family meeting! Until then stay out of sight! This place was set up for the Vinsmokes, Pudding and I. Nobody else! I need everything going perfectly! NUTMEG! Be a good girl and make sure he stays put!""Yes Mama."According to Big Moms wishes you vacate the premise and make sure that you're well and truly out of sight before you start talking."She seems angry.""Mm-hmm. I heard some of the servants talking about a hunger pang hitting her today. She probably got mad once she saw the buildings she destroyed. It's always like this. She gets excited about something and suddenly her condition worsens. It gets especially bad if things don't go according to her expectations. So... what now?""Oh I'm still gonna be there! Kekeke. I'll just be very sneaky about it!"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcerBQo4QV0A quick trip to your dorms and an exchange later you return to the garden in bat form with Ann riding on your back as a tiny spider. With much fanfare and a lot of noise. Scores of homies are herding the guests of honor inside and shower them with flower petals every one of their footsteps. There, perched on a nearby bush you see the whole Vinsmoke family stride in with pride and confidence like they own the place. In the front is the family head Vinsmoke Judge with his four children Ichiji, Niji, Yonji and Reiju walking side by side behind him. And behind all of them but only barely is Sanji looking out of his head with dead eyes that betray his broken spirit.They are forced to stand around the table as Mama herself is fashionably late. At first. Then it becomes awkward as she keeps them waiting even longer. A bit after that she finally makes her entrance with a presence that trumps even that of the haughty nobles, her thundering footsteps even make the languid Sanji open his eyes and look at her... girth."Hahaha! It's good to have you hear Germa 66! Sorry to be late!"Only Sanji seems to be worried by her presence. The rest of his family doesn't even budge when faced with an Emperor. They really are foolish."We've had a little problem but it should be okay now!"Mama takes a seat and that signals the others that they may sit down now. Her first action is to size up Sanji himself who does not avert his gaze from her."So you're Black Leg Sanji hmmm? You'll become my daughter Puddings husband! Don't be shy! MAMA-MAMA!"Big Mom laughs as Pudding makes her entrance, looking prettied up and a whole lot different than how you got to know her. She's putting up an act of innocence to lower the Vinsmokes guard."Sorry for being late!Uncharacteristically for him Sanji barely acknowledges her presence whilst his brothers start drooling as they gawk at her."Anyway I heard a lot about your son! He's a cook, right? He's going to be a good match for my Pudding. Well, it doesn't matter even if he's not. This is a political marriage after all! Isn't that right Judge? MAMA-MAMA!""Yes. It would be nice indeed if our children ended up happy! Let us have a toast for tomorrow's wedding in their honor!"His voice is pleasant but his words ring hollow."Yeah! Let's!"Big Mom is the first to pick up one of the wineglass homies and pours the crimson liquid straight down her gullet. The Vinsmokes are a bit more elegant as they follow suit. Only Sanji seems hesitant as he's fixated on the fact that the glass is alive."It's not their blood or pee.""Wuh-"Sanji starts looking around as you throw your voice at him."Don't look. Use your Haki. I'm on the Gazebo. Anyway the wine is not their blood or pee, I checked once. Only the glass is alive. You can drink it."He hesitates for a second but eventually relents and drinks up."Good. Now if you want to respond try whispering very quietly. I got sharp ears."
"Silver?""Yup!"Ann jumps off of you and climbs into Sanjis hair."I'm also here Mr Black Leg!""Right... I forgot you married into this family... The hell do you want?""I wanted to meet you but Mama didn't let me attend. So I decided to do a little workaround. How are you doing? It's been a while!""Get lost...""Don't worry I will! Just came in to say hi. Talking face to face is better anyway.""I don't care. Leave.""I was just wondering, since when were you a noble?""Since none of your business.""Ouch. Tough crowd. Why so grouchy Black Leg? Sad that you left your little friends behind? Don't worry. I know they'll come."You hear Sanji tightening his fists and the bones in his knuckles popping."Who knows? Maybe I'll go ahead and greet them! Kekeke!"You hear a fist smashing down on the table and Judge reprimands him immediately."Sanji! Behave yourself! Have you no shame?!""It's okay! Mama-Mama! Boy is just nervous. Seen it a hundred times!""What do you want?!"Sanji whispers but now it's almost audible for others. Especially how he's grinding his teeth.>Let's talk! In private.>I just want to know if you want to be here or not>I'm interested in meeting your family. Since we're gonna be one. Help a brother out?>Other?
>>5414109>I'm interested in meeting your family. Since we're gonna be one. Help a brother out?I genuinely don't know which one, but this way we can give Pink a warning and figure out a way to get her out.
>>5414109>>I'm interested in meeting your family. Since we're gonna be one. Help a brother out?
>>5414109>Let's talk! In private.
>>5414109>>Let's talk! In private.
Private meeting with Sanji it is>writing
>>5413947The players just finished having discourse about spending their cat's skillpoints, the qm had to step up by rolling dice for it. It's equal parts hilarious and annoying.
>>5414297pfffffffffffffffftthat's based in a very autistic wayand I imagine will later slow the quest to a crawl
>>5414303Apparently it took hours.
"I was thinking about meeting your family. Chat a little. See if they get knocked out as easy as last time!""What-""But I'm more interested in talking with you though. In private.""You think they'll let me go as I please? With all these freaky objects around? Besides I got nothing to talk about with you!""After Mama leaves I think they'll leave you alone for a while. They seem just about as thrilled being around you as you are about them. Besides I don't think they care about where you go with those bombs strapped to you.""How do you-""Already forgot Sabaody? I heard that thing ticking when you came. In fact it's pissing me off. Could remove it you know? All you need to do is ask.""Just leave me alone already...""Sheesh. What got into you? Whatever it is I hope Goofy beats it out of you. Anyway once you're free go to the bathroom. I'll follow you. And just leave the homies to me. I can take care of them. Spider. Let's leave him alone for a bit.""Good luck Mr Vinsmoke! And please forgive him. He's been agitated the last couple days.""It's Sanji..."After Ann climbed back on top and you flew away from the scene. As you suspected this little gathering didn't last for much longer. Watching from a safe distance you see the Vinsmokes leaving the place with Reiju going her own way while her father and brothers are escorted away by sultry women to one of the luxury lounges of the chateau. No doubt to be lulled into a false sense of security by copious amounts of food and booze. Maybe even women. You got half a mind about following and introducing them to Gu and Dexters special mushroom and neurotoxin wine. Just to see how they'd handle it. But you got more important things to worry about. Sanji went to his own private suite and you see Pudding following him. You get worried for a second but thankfully Black Leg isn't that stupid and he quickly left for one of the bathrooms where you followed him."Good to see you still have your common sense Curly."You talk to him while hanging upside down from the shower curtain."Just get this over with. I left Pudding-chan alone in the room because of this!"He looks around the bathroom and sees all the unconscious homies."Is this gonna be a problem?""Oh no. They aren't dead. Could've killed them. But that'd be a bit suspicious. Anyway you seem a bit more talkative than you were before. AND your voice is a bit more chipper. That's something.""Be honest with us Mr Black Leg. How are you feeling?""That's none of your business. And besides, it's not like it matters. I'm stuck in this gilded cage whether I like it or not.""My offer still stands Curly. Could break it off in a jiffy. Let you make a run for it."He seems amused."Is that what you think? That it's that easy?""Yeap!"
>>5414354Didn't sanji get slapped with the cuffs after his first meeting with pudding? like during their first meeting sanji was still firmly believing he was gonna leave, and it was only after when his family put the cuffs and started threatening zeff he began to give up
>>5414369It's almost as if Silver's existence changes things (Be nice to Spooks)
>>5414382>tfw the moment sanji heard he would be a brother in law in law to silver he lost his shit and they had to enact the dickhead measures to force him to heel early
"Hah-hahaha! You just don't understand, do you?"Sanji raises his wrists, both of which are adorned by pretty little golden bracelets. Rigged with explosives. Not enough to kill a person. But enough to maim them. If they used armament to protect themselves."You think these are the reason why I'm here?"He looks at your prosthetic bat wing."I get it. Alright?""Hmmmm?"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_2vHXFVu2wg"I get what you felt! Being trapped like that. If it got me out of this mess I'd gladly give up these arms. I could just... ask Franky for new ones. But if I leave not only will I loose my hands but everyone I care about will be killed!"He snaps at you."So that's why... that's why I'll be a good boy and play along. It's going to be better for everyone. And hey, looks like I'll get a pretty cute wife too. It honestly could be worse.""You'd just betray Goofy like that?""His name is Luffy! And he can just... find a new chef and move on. If I stay I'll just endanger all of them. And those I care about.""B-But what will you tell them when they come for you? Surely you realize they will-""What do you think lady? I'll tell them to get lost. That's it. It'll be better for them that way. At least they won't all die because of me."You jump off the shower curtain and transform back into your human form. Looking at Sanji with your one eye you raise your hand to his chest."Is it okay if I rip out your stomach now?""W-What are you on about?""It's okay. You can just get a new one and move on! CAN'T YOU?!""SILVER!""HOW WERE YOU A PIRATE ALL THIS TIME AND NOT UNDERSTAND THIS?!"You growl at him a few times before looking away in disgust."Tch. You know what? Maybe it's better that Goofy never sees this pathetic mess. Yeah. Maybe when he gets here I'll just go and kill him! I'd be doing them a favor!"Sanji looses his temper and knees you in the jaw before kicking you in the chest so hard you get embedded in the wall with a loud crash."Kek-Kekeke! This is why I like and hate you guys. All that anger but you still can't bring attack with killing intent. And yet it still hurts this much!"As you pull yourself free from the wall Sanji glares at you."I've just about had it with people threatening me! If I see your face again I won't be so gentle! I hope I was clear... brother!""Crystal. Kek! Maybe you do get it!"Sanji then turns to leave but you call after him one more time."Wait-">Have a nice wedding!>It's a trap. The whole thing. You'll die>Your sister. When I met her she said she cares about you. Do you feel the same about her?>Other?
>>5414369Imma be honest I wasn't gonna rewatch the whole of Wholecake Island just to get deets like that right and I'm going off on memory.Not like it changes much
>>5414424>>It's a trap. The whole thing. You'll die
>>5414424>Your sister. When I met her she said she cares about you. Do you feel the same about her?
>>5414424>>Your sister. When I met her she said she cares about you. Do you feel the same about her?
Fuck Sanji, focus on ReijuGot it>writing
>>5414470hey toxin asked us to try and find a way to save/spare her.
>>5414475And he's given up on being a pirate. Why would we want to save him at this point?
"Your sister Reiju. She said she cares about you when I met her. Would you say the same about her?""Reiju?"He pauses."She's just about the only part of my wretched family worth a damn. Why do you ask?""And the others?""They can rot in hell for all I care. Why?""No reason. Just wanted to make sure I don't make a mistake.""If you so much as lay a finger on her I-""Relax Curly. Not gonna do anything to her. Promise. Now I'm gonna leave you alone since you clearly need some time to chill. And do something about that smell for crying out loud! Nobody likes the stench of blood! Let's go Spider.""I wish you only the best Mr Black Leg. Sorry for the trouble.""Thanks..."Ann jumps on your back and you revert to your bat form to get out of there as quietly as possible. But along the way Spider begins nagging you which makes that a whole lot harder."Don't you think you were a bit harsh there? I thought you wanted to help him...""No. I'm just gonna fight some people that happen to be his enemies. It's pure coincidence that this benefits him. And I wasn't too harsh. I think I went too easy on him. But it's not my ship to run and not my problem. The weenie has given up. Either Goofy realizes that and lets him go or he might end up dead because of it. Either way they have to sort it out.""Hmmm. Still I believe he needs help.""Not from us.""Then what now? Shall we head for Ms Reiju? Ask her about things?""No need. She already told us everything. Nothing changed since. And not like she can do anything if we told her the truth. But Curly just said she's okay and that pretty much seals the deal. We're making sure she gets away.""Do you really value his opinion that much?""You know how they are. Goodie two shoes. And he hates every other member of the family so..."You finally manage to find a window that's not being watched by at least two guards and fly out through it. The moment you do however something hits you."Whoa!""What's wrong?""Kek! I think the party's getting started early!""What? Already?""Straw-Hat is on the island! And he's fighting! It's... uh oh. Hold on Spider! We're taking a little detour!""Oh no."
Heading straight towards the source of the noise you start thinking. If they already made it to Wholecake Island then Mama surely knew about their presence way earlier. Which would explain why she was so late for the meeting. You pick up the pace to get there as fast as possible and once you start to physically feel the haki of the participants you realize just where they are fighting."The Seducing Woods?""Weenies walked right into a trap! Typical! And now they are fighting one of the Sweet Commanders! The buffoon!""Didn't you pick a fight with Katakuri back in the day?""That was DIFFERENT!"Not wanting to waste any more time you dive down into the woods and make your way to where the fighting is. Once there you see an army of homies surrounding your quarry, unsurprising considering that the entirety of the Seducing Woods is made up of homies whose job is to confuse intruders. But the fact that the king of the place King Baum also got involved is surprising. In the middle is Brulé is facing off against Nami who has a rather large and ugly man by her side that you don't recognize. And some distance away from them, probably so they don't accidentally injure the girls are Cracker and Luffy. And ol' Goofy is not doing too hot. Just from one glance you can tell that he lacks the strength and speed to stand up to the much more experienced Sweet Commander."Sigh. Why do I have to do everything?"Deciding to intrude on this brawl you return to your human form and release a blast of Conquerors Haki which first shakes the Seducing Woods and then makes every homie in the immediate vicinity wither and die."Hellooooo boys! Mind if I cut in?""Silver?!""HIM?!""Sissy?"Cracker briefly stops his fight to glance at you."What are you doing here Cavalier? This is my fight! Mamas orders.""I just came to check out what all that noise was about.""Hmph. Now you know so you can get lost. I don't need your help or you getting in my way!"Luffy seems pretty nervous as he's looking at you. Despite him being as dumb as you he knows that you're on the other team for the time being. You're about to address him when the large and ugly man rudely interrupts you."E-Erm... excuse me? I don't know who you are. Are you one of Linlins children?""Son-in-law. Name's Silver. You?""Oh thank god! Please help me! My name is Pound! I used to be one of Linlins husbands!""Oh? I got a dad?! Cool!""Actually I'm Lola and Chiffons dad! I-I know Linlin doesn't want me to be here! But I just want to congratulate Chiffon on getting married! If I can do that and see my grandson once I'll take my leave I promise!""Oh... Well I don't see the problem with that! Go ahead pops!""T-Thank y-"Cracker swings his sword in an arc and shoots out a wave of air that almost decapitates Pound.
"YOU FORGET YOUR PLACE POUND! YOU ARE NOT PART OF THIS FAMILY! You are just Mamas 25th ex-husband! You never should've returned! I would've been willing to overlook this audacity but then you had to assist the intruders! That makes you a traitor Pound! And that means you die!"Pound begins sobbing and begging for his life. Thankfully Luffy is standing between the two of them so the commander can't exactly just kill him outright. But that won't change the fact that he just tried to do that. Popping your fingers one by one you start walking forward.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_2vHXFVu2wg "Oy. Cracker. What was that?""What does it look like?! I'm trying to do my job and kill this traitorous filth!""You just tried to kill him.""Are you DEAF? He's a traitor! He tried to help these scum get out of the woods! They are Mamas enemies and he helped them!""He's your step-dad.""Tch. Your ignorance actually hurts! You know nothing of our ways! Our fathers mean nothing to us! They aren't part of the family! Once our siblings are born they are cast out. They should be grateful for the time they got to spend leeching off of Mamas generosity and that they get to keep their lives afterwards!""HE'S YOUR DAD!"You leap forward with sword in hand and you clash with Cracker. He's quite surprised by this but nowhere near as much as when he starts sliding backwards."YOU IDIOTS HAVE NO IDEA DO YOU?! WHAT IT FEELS LIKE WHEN YOU HAVE NOBODY! YOU COULD HAVE TWENTY-FIVE DADS AND YOU TREAT THEM LIKE THIS?!"Argent cuts into the hardened biscuit that makes up Crackers sword and once it gains purchase it slides through it like hot butter. As the tip of his precious weapon falls impotently to the ground you land on your feet and look up at the gigantic Cracker."Now I get why you people make me sick!"Shifting your eye you look at Straw Hat."Hey Goofy!">Get lost. This is my fight now>I'm taking Pound away. You better knock this guy out for at least a day>Other?
>>5414555>>Get lost. This is my fight now
>>5414555>>I'm taking Pound away. You better knock this guy out for at least a dayWho are we to deprive Luffy from his gains. We're not here to give Luffy an easy ride.
>>5414555>I'm taking Pound away. You better knock this guy out for at least a day
I legitimately don't know what to vote for. Usually its pretty clear what feels good but both options feel right so I'll defer to Anons. Tho we arn't on Goofy's side, now are we? The moment he touches someone we like, or gets close to someone we like. Or we get bored we're coming for him, right?
>>5414562The vibe I've gotten is that Silver isn't happy with Big Mama, but he doesn't care about what Luffy has going here. He's gotta earn his shit just like everyone else in the world. At best we steal some of his fights, like we could right now, because they say dumb shit that goes against Silver's barely existent morals.
>>5414555>>I'm taking Pound away. You better knock this guy out for at least a dayNot our fight. Also this will be our good deed for the month.
>>5414562Of course. Luffy is our rival, which means we both beat the shit out of each other as a form of philosophical debate.He's the only guy on earth who might actually /get/ us without going through some kind of epiphany and vis versa, but at the same time our world views are so opposed the only way we can peacefully coexist is to constantly decide who is correct through repeated head trauma.
WowThat's actually putting a lot of faith in Goobers ability to knock Cracker outBut at least it's a nice gesture towards Pound>writing
>>5414593Less faith and more an ultimatum. He better knock him out. Because if he doesn't we're gonna style on him and make him look like a weenie.
>>5414593Hey if Luffy wants his chef back he needs to step the fuck up. There are no free handouts here.
>>5414596Well maybe. But a lot still depends on him being able to do it. Like Cracker not ratting on you.
>>5414601stop expecting your players to think shit through, they haven't done it a single time yet, they are not gonna start now
>>5414601What's he gonna say, "Silver is angy and mad and he brought Pound"?. All things Mom would already know.
>>5414602Now that's just plain wrong. There were plenty of times they thought of stuff not even I did!
>>5414608yeah but almost every time we do we get smacked down by the die gods.
>>5414602>>5414608It's a win win situation. Either we galaxy brain our way through, the dice are at fault for our failure, or we're just roleplaying a dumbass so it's fiiiiine.No matter what happens we're not blame.
>>5414602That's just not quite fair, more often then not Anons are pretty great. >>5414601Ah yes, that would look great. "Mama! Silver beat me up, stopped me from killing Pound and left without me being able to do a thing about it, please punish him!" Honestly I'd imagine Cracker being in more hot water after that one then we'd be.
"I'm taking Pound away from here! You better knock this guy into next week or I'm coming to beat your ass! Got it?"As you're talking to him however Cracker sneaks up behind you, sporting a couple more arms all wielding an exact and whole copy of his sword. Even the original you just broke is back in prime condition."You talk too much!"He brings down all of the blades at once but finds you standing on top of them without a scratch on you. Giving him a brief grin before ducking you allow Luffy to deliver a smack to his jaw."I don't need your help Sissy!""Even if you did you wouldn't get it! Now kick his ass. And I'll see you tomorrow! SPIDER!""Yes Silver!"Popping out from your hat Ann shoots out a web that wraps around Pounds body, allowing you to lift him out of there easily and with the Seducing Woods being incapable of stopping you. Once you're out of there you fly to the outskirts of town where you drop down Pound who looks like he's about to hurl."Sorry. Not used to flying.""It's okay. Everyone does it at first. Anyway, hold still. Spider will wrap you up in a cocoon now.""Wuh-why?""You want to meet Chiffon don't you? She's probably inside Bege who's inside the chateau. And you're way too big to enter there undetected. So we'll wrap you up like a gift.""Oh... I get it. Thank you kindly! Are you one of Chiffons friends?""No. I just have a ceasefire with her husband after one of my crew almost killed him. But that's not important. Now put this straw in your mouth. It'll help you breathe. Spider, do your thing!"Ann manages to completely encase Pound in a protective shell of webbing and you carry the overly large package into the Chateau where you drop it off to a bunch of homies."Here. Take this to Bege. Tell him it's a gift from Nutmeg to Chiffon.""Right away sir!"
Alright. That should do it for today I think.I hope you enjoyed this session. We'll continue next week.And this is where I must break the bad news. Basically how things have been going up until now is that I wrote stuff at work when I had the time and downloaded that stuff to my phone to use later. Now due to some changes in the workplace I likely won't be able to do that. Meaning from now on there will be less sessions during the week and not on the weekend.I am terribly sorry for the inconvenience. I'll try to compensate by writing in the afternoon but that may not always be possible.Anyways. Have a good night!
>>5414641Thanks for running Spooks, sorry to hear the job is clamping down on your writing. It's a damn enjoyable ride you've taken us on and I'm really hyped for what comes next. It's just going to be beautiful, and if I get my wish we'l be going after Peclo and Du Felt and in so doing expand the accidental and burgeoning empire we started with Outer Heaven
Okay everyone. I think Saturay might be a good day for continuin the quest. Usual time as always
After sending off pound in a box you slinked away for a little while and waited. Thankfully no alarms were raised, no staff was dispatched to clean up any bloodstains like it was discarded ketchup and most importantly nobody came to check on you. So either he got to his daughter just fine or they killed him before he could be tortured for information. Either way, great success. Though you do hope he got to reconnect with Chiffon just fine.What was more interesting however was Straw-Hats fight with Cracker. You heard that their fight went on for eleven hours and in the end Goofy came out victorious, knocking Cracker out so hard the doctors said he definitely won't be waking up for the Wedding. Another great success. Mama got furious over this however and had vast portions of her army dispatched to bring the audacious little shit in. Alive or dead. According to the last report he was sitting in an open field unable to move from the sheer exhaustion of fighting a Sweet Commander. Which you don't really buy but you don't doubt he's tired beyond descriptions. After all Cracker still has an impressive bounty of 860.000.000. Thankfully Mama hasn't yet ordered you to go after him. You don't know why, perhaps she doesn't want you to meet up with him for some reason or she simply wants to do this herself, but you're not complaining either.In other news you overheard some gossip that a member of the Vinsmoke family got injured. After a bit of eavesdropping Will confirmed that it was Reiju. And that they are keeping her in the infirmary under a tight lock. Gu is unsurprisingly pissed about it and is currently trying to ask (bribe) Lyda into going there with him to help. You just shake your head at this."That man can't keep it in his pants."Murray also looks at him in disappointment."Didn't you get banished from your home because of some girl?""Yes. That's why I know how bad that is..."Disregarding Jaws you start thinking about what to do next. The wedding is rapidly approaching and with the Straw Hats here to wreck shit it's bound to be chaotic. And you need to decide how to spend what little time you have left until tomorrow.>Go and see how Goofy is doing and taunt him>Let's see what happened to Reiju>Gather up everyone and prepare for tomorrow>It's better to just rest up. Not like you can do much with so little time left>Other?
>>5421426>>Let's see what happened to ReijuWhile calling goofy a dumb-dumb and throwing oranges at him from the air sounds like a splendid way to spend the afternoon I don't want anyone thinking we're working together. Since we're not. Shame about those oranges tho
>>5421426>Let's see what happened to ReijuGoofy's fine, but Reiju might not be. We promised to protect her.
>>5421426>>Go and see how Goofy is doing and taunt him
>>5421426>Let's see what happened to Reiju>It's better to just rest up. Not like you can do much with so little time leftLets just max out observation haki and just stay here but listen for news about her. We don't have much time left to prepare ourselves
So the majority seems to favor checking on Reiju before getting ready for tomorrow>writing
"Hey Stitches! Grab your stuff. We're going to see what happened to Reiju.""B-But-""No buts. If she got attacked then that means something is up. And I want to know what. If Mama is doing things ahead of schedule then that means we can throw our plans out the window. Now let's go.""YES! Woo-hoo!"You had half a mind about telling Omukade to stay put but he's so enthusiastic you just don't have the heart to do it. Making your way to the level where she was laid to rest you find several homies standing guard in front of her room. Strange, considering that there are no Germa guards there. Mamas servants try to stop you from entering under Mamas express orders but you got a good solution for that."I do what I want."The sentinels all wither away before your very eyes. You didn't even need to use conquerors haki to do it. Just for a second you decided to unleash violence on them and they died from a heartattack. Or whatever chesspieces and doors have for hearts. It's a good alternative to using your haki because aside the ones you think about attacking nobody else can feel it. So with them dispatched you enter undisturbed into the infirmary. Surprising no one there is not a single soul in there aside Reiju herself. She was most likely isolated either to placate the other Vinsmokes or to better keep an eye on her. She seems to be resting and hasn't noticed your entry yet."Stitches. Go check on her. Toxin... the hell are you doing?""Soup.""Ah yes."Lyda takes out her medical equipment from her little purse and approaches Reijus bed who wakes up as soon as Stitches touches her sheets, freaking out your little doctor."EEP!""What are you doing here?""E-Erm. I'm... trying to check up on you! W-Were you awake all this time?""No. Only one half of my brain is sleeping at any given time and they alternate every hour so I'm aware of my surroundings at all times."Reiju then turns to look at you. She doesn't seem to have that cheery disposition she had when you first met."Hello again Cavalier. I hoped our next encounter were under more pleasant circumstances.""Eh. Don't worry about it. It was this guy who wanted to come here so badly."Gu gets so flustered he drops his chopsticks into the mini wok he was stirring."Thanks Silver..."That gets a tired chuckle out of Reiju."That's very thoughtful of you. The medical attention as well. But it's wholly unnecessary. Big Moms doctors already took a look at me and they addressed my injury. My body will do the rest.""I-If it's alright I'd still like to take a look. No offense to the doctors working here but I wouldn't want you to accidentally get diabetes from getting candy in your wound.""If it'll please you, go ahead."You also approach the bed and sit down next to her. As you do a faint whiff of cigarette smoke hits your nose. Her brother was here already."So... what happened?"
She closes her eyes."It was nothing. Just a foolish little mistake. A stray bullet ricochet and hit me during my nightly drill. It's unfortunate that it happened today of all days, just before the wedding. Thankfully I should make a perfect recovery overnight. Otherwise I may not be able to live down the shame of showing up to the wedding in a wheelchair."Surprisingly she's telling the truth. The rate of her heart didn't even budge during any of that."Huh. Really? Phew. I thought something was up. Does something like this happen often?""This was the first time. The nervousness might be getting to me. I... asked Big Moms people to not notify my father about this. I'm not sure how he'd react if he heard how clumsy I was."Well that at least explains the lack of Germa soldiers."Here."Omukade hands her a bowl of hot soup."Sounds like you need to nourish your spirit as well as your body.""Thank you!"She starts drinking as Lyda accesses her bandages. For some reason Stitches frowns and starts sizing up the obvious bullet hole in Reijus leg."It's healing very nicely. And it looks like it was treated adequately. Though some fresh bandages won't hurt. Are you in any pain?""Just a little. Father made sure our sense of pain is minimal.""In that case I'll just apply some local anesthetics and call it a day. I hope you're not afraid of needles."Reiju shakes her head."Thank you Doctor but that's not necessary. Your needle won't be able to pierce my skin anyway."Wait a minute. That's right! Their bodies are modified and hardened! What kind of bullet could penetrate that? And why would the Germa have guns that can hurt their own princes? You smell something fishy and it's not Toxins soup.>Bring Reijus attention to this little detail>Keep that thought to yourself and only share it with your crew once you're alone>Other?
>>5421537>>Bring Reijus attention to this little detailDetective Silver is on the case!
>>5421537>>Bring Reijus attention to this little detail
Silver says "fuck subtlety">writing
>>5421595It dropped the soap. It knew what would happen.
>>5421611that joke would've been better if you wrote as a name-fag called Subtlety
You glare at Reiju for a moment before grabbing her arm, careful that she doesn't spill the soup with the other."H-Hey!""Silver what the hell?!"Just to be on the safe side you give it a squeeze and confirm that it is indeed tough as lead. She seems unsure about what to think but it seems like she gets what you were trying to do."Do you guys often train with bullets that can kill you?"Gu is about to say something very mean to you when Reiju looks down."No.""Then what happened?"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IrLWxzNEjNA&list=RDztgjrzMvhuc&index=3"According to Sanji? Pudding shot me.""What?""What?""What?""I have no memory of the incident. As far as I know it really was an accident. But I do admit that it seemed strange to me. However my little brother came here a while ago. Apparently he over heard Pudding gloating about shooting me and getting away with it. He also said that tomorrow all of us will be killed by Big Mom.""So you guys know."Both Gu and Lyda are stunned by this."So it will be an all out war then."She shakes her head."You don't need to worry. I haven't told my family anything. And neither will Sanji. We don't have any love for them you see. I promise I won't cause any problems for you. Or if that troubles you then you may kill me now. I won't resist.""W-What are you saying?!""I'm saying I accept what you have planned for us. I'd say it's about time the Vinsmoke family got what's coming to it. Who knows, maybe this is for the best? But in return for my compliance I'd like to ask that you keep your word. Remember when we first met? I asked you to take care of my little brother as if he was your family. Little Sanji was always a kind hearted boy, the only one among us deserving of a good life. Our family won't be missed. But he? He has worth. The world would be a worse place without him in it."You turn away from her and start heading for the door."Let's go guys.""R-Right!""Just hold on a moment Silver!""Toxin?"Gu turns to Reiju."Are you for real? You're really just going to sit here and act like nothing happened? You're willing to sit quietly while you get slaughtered like pigs?!""You sound upset.""I AM! How could you give up on living so easily? Has the thought of fighting not occurred to you?""No."She answered without hesitation."In fact there wasn't a choice to make. I'm not giving up on anything you see. My life, ever since I knew it, was in someone elses hand. I'm tired Omukade. And this seems like a perfectly good way out. As long as Sanji survives I'll be happy."She raises her hands and gives the bowl back to Toxin."But thank you for your concern and the food. It was very heartwarming."
>>5421617So Silver is going to start yelling at her, right?
>>5421619That's kinda complicated.On the one hand yeah she's "giving up" but on the other hand she's leaving the world on her own terms.It's like the granny back on Whirlpool island. She stayed alive for decades just to hear what happened to her kin, but as soon as she knew she laughed, threw up the proverbial duces, and went on to her eternal rest with a smile.Reiju has faith in Silver to do what needs done and to keep his word, which he will and does. So long as he promises to keep Sanji safe Sanji will be safe, in so much as anyone can be as a pirate in the new world.Far as she's concerned she's done her duty. All that's left is service till she breaks enough to finally be thrown away. If her bastard of an owner dies with her that's just a bonus.
Gu stands there utterly speechless, clutching that bowl like it was the last thing tethering him to his own sanity."Stitches.""R-Right..."She skips over to him and starts pulling him away from the bedridden Vinsmoke girl."Come on big guy."As she brings him over you put a hand on his shoulder and pat him gently. Looking back over your own shoulder you speak to Reiju one last time."Thanks. And take care. I'll see you tomorrow.""Bye!"After stepping out the door and walking a bit more you look at Gu."Are you okay?""No..."He squeezes and the wooden bowl splinters to a million pieces."How could she say that? How could you? Aren't you mad?! You're supposed to be the one who's always yelling obscenities at stupid people until they change their mind!""I am mad.""Then... why?""You know it. She told us. She can't. Her dad made it so she can't disobey. Even I get that. And..."You reach up to your neck and adjust the collar of your shirt a bit."It's not easy to break free when you're alone.""Then... what?""You're free to do as you want. But you can't do much if she doesn't want to break free."He looks like he's about to go back right now but after counting to ten and then some more he manages to hold himself back."Can I expect you to back me up captain?""Kek. What's one more thing to worry about?""Thanks."You return to your dorms and get however much sleep you can get with Omukade showing up with several bags under his eyes. All of you then get dressed all prim and proper. Except you of course. You just get one of your many identical suits because why fix perfection? Being part of the family means that you were expected to be there way ahead of schedule but the upside is that unlike other guests you weren't screened for any weapons. Well, you were but that was only for show. In reality a bunch of homies have already brought your equipment in and hid it so it doesn't attract any attention. Same with other members of the family.Once seated you wait for people to start arriving. And suffice to say the attendees are about the same as every other time Mama held a party. Except there is way more of them now. You see the Vinsmokes getting seated at their own little table, completely unarmed and unaware of the proverbial beartrap they just sat in. But aside them there are actually other guests that you have vested interest in. As usual the Emperors of the Underworld have been invited as VIPs. Among them are the two bastards Du Felt and Drug Peclo whose little prison island operation you threw a wrench shaped bomb in. You kinda forgot about them with more important things to worry about.>Go ahead and say hi to them>Ask one of your crew to "deal" with them>Better lay low for now. You'll deal with them when all hell breaks loose>Other?
>>5421641>>Go ahead and say hi to themWe haven't been enough of a little shit, we should fix that
>>5421641>>Go ahead and say hi to them
>>5421641>Go ahead and say hi to themThats why i fucked your bitch you fat motherfuckerWest blue side
>>5421641>Go ahead and say hi to themI second everyone motions!
hooo boystarting shit at someone elses wedding?dick move>writing
>>5421683She started it!
"Hmmmm. Now what does my little eye see?""Those freaks. Want me to take care of them? I'm in quite a murderous mood.""Nah Toxin. I got it. Don't wanna pop off too early you know!"As you start cracking your knuckles Clown walks up next to you and cocks one of her eyebrows."Whatchu guys looking at?""No offense but I don't think a fake musician needs to know.""Very clever Botulism Chef. But I didn't master every brass instrument, drums, the harmonica and the accordion to be called a fake musician. You on the other hand do violate food every single day so I'd struggle to call you a proper chef. So what are you doing?""Silver wants to kick in the shit of Drug Peclo and Du Feld. You know, the people whose island you took us to and betrayed us?""Yes. I'm aware. Thank you. However I may have something that will make you very happy. Do you want to make one more persons life a living hell?"That caught your attention."Do tell!""You know Stussy? The Whore Queen. She's actually a CP-0 operative. I caught her staring at me. Can't tell if she did it because she's terrified I'll rat her out or if she's trying to find a way to murder me. Probably both. Wanna double down? Go ahead.""Kekeke! Thanks Clown!"You give her a high five and walk over to Stitches who is currently chatting with Greki and Dexter. Your giant friend is looking rather grim with a bunch of skulls and bones braided into his beard which Lyda helped put in there. Apparently some people had issues with it but Mama allowed it once he said it's a cultural thing for giants. And Dexter the rat mink is trying not to suffocate from his suit and not die of heat stroke under the blazing sun. You pull the doctor over a little and ask a favor from her. After that, it's go time.You approach the table where the underworld kingpins are seated. Big News Morgans gets ecstatic when he sees you."Aaaaah if it isn't one of my favorite psychopaths! How are you doing Cap-""We'll talk later Morgans. Now those of you that I don't have unfinished business with, get lost."Four of them stand up but you put a hand on Stussys shoulder and force her to sit back down."Not you.""Ey you guys seeing this? Little shit strolls in and acts like he owns the place! Just wait till Big Mom hears about this! You'll get your fucking spanking yet you shitty brat!"Du Feld the fat bastard and loan shark king is looking at you through his sunglasses and it's clear that he's furious with you.Meanwhile Drug Peclo stands up brandishing his oversized scythe."Gugigigugi! Well if it isn't the little bastard that messed up our little operation! Looks like we won't have to look for him now, eh Du Feld? What do you think? Shall we ask Big Mom for his head once this is over?""Attack her family, are ya crazy? Nah. We make it look like an accident! You hear that you shitstain? Hope ya don't like sleeping cause you'll never get to rest ever again!"
"Whatever problem you gentlemen have with each other could you leave me out of it? No offense but I really don't care how much you want to kill each other."You start gripping her shoulder hard and feel her body tense up with Tekkai. You grin because she knows that you know but she can't exactly act on that knowledge or else she'll have every person present going for her head if her loyalties get revealed. Still having a firm grasp on her you turn your attention to Peclo."Sit down. And stop swinging that toy around. I could eat it for breakfast. But if I fed it to you I don't think you'd like it.""Oh look Du Feld! He wants to go!"Peclo is smiling."Y-You dare?! Just you wait till Linlin hears about this!""Kek! Go ahead! Tell her! It won't un-dead you guys!""WHAT?!""WHAT?!""Come on, don't start shaking! I'm not gonna do anything to you NOW! I might get you on the cake."You glare at the two and try to make them as uncomfortable as possible."Just so you know I was aware that it was your island when I started wrecking it. And now I'm here to finish that. But not right now hehe! Basically I just came to tell you that once this wedding is over you're dead!""Y-You wouldn't dare."Du Feld is sweating now and needs to adjust his necktie."We're Big Moms guests. We're partners! We're constantly doing business. She will-""Do business with whoever comes after you. Or do you guys not have a hundred people in line just waiting to take your place? Who knows, maybe they'll be smart and not piss me off!"Grinning you take a sip of your glass of water as you lock eyes with Du Feld.He feels you applying your pressure to him and he's croaking. He starts coughing and tries to reach for his glass of wine to wet his throat a bit but the wineglass shatters in his hand as you click your tongue. Now properly choking he's trying to call for some water but none of the servants can hear him. Feeling generous you slide over your glass to him and after seeing you drink from it he eagerly accepts. He gulps the water down with greed. He lets out a sigh of relief but after you let out a sharp whistle he bends over and starts howling in pain. The scene gets so bad that he needs to be escorted to the infirmary immediately. Nobody was really sure what happened except that you did something. Yet nobody knew what it was exactly, nor did they have any proof.Once the coast was clear you turned to Stussy and Drug Peclo."That was a live rat trying to claw its way out of his stomach. My doctor put some silver in my water which she swapped out for the rat. And that's just what I came up with now. Imagine what I'll do once I start actually thinking about how to kill you! Anyway, I won't bother you anymore! Enjoy the party! And I'll see you guys later."
And just like Silver I think I'll see you guys later as well. Gonna need to prepare for what is about to unfold.I'll also try and not be a shitter so I can run on maybe Wednesday? But that may change depending on when I can get the update ready.Anyway I hope you enjoyed yourselves.Have a good night
>>5421813Everything I could have wanted and more, good night Spooks and thanks for running.
>>5421806>"That was a live rat trying to claw its way out of his stomach. My doctor put some silver in my water which she swapped out for the ratFuck.
>>5421823Silver's ability to fuck around is rivaled only by his joy in helping others find out.
>>5421823>>5421853More then Silver, who let's be honest is hardly adverse to casual cruelty, it's gone to the point where little Lyda is willing to pull that kind of horror. But possibly more important is this not-conquerors thing Silver has figured out, but yea. Spooks weaving together so many little things basically just to style on them? Absolutely awesome
>>5422338That thing Silver did is not unique to himIn fact Cracker can do the same thing which is either a testament to his power or proof that the homies are pretty susceptible to stuff
>>5422412It's still neat, and another of the surprisingly stealthy tools in Silvers toolbox. Just imagine the actual horror movie nonsense you can do when there is someone out to murder you and nobody can hear you scream for help, nor hear him coming. It's an amusing thought; everyone thinks Silver is evil for enjoying what he does and doing what he enjoys but what would they call it if he decided to just get the job done?Between Sabaody (that was one hellova scene by the by) and this I think it's fair to say its food for thought.
>>5422637Well the thing is that perceptions of Silver wary greatly depending on how much exposure a person had to Silver and which side of Silver he's standing on.There is the most common view shared by most people in the world due to propaganda and faulty information. That he's a very competent and dangerous pirate steadily building himself up as a major player, creating hives of scum and villainy while also making alliances.Then there are those who know him personally but they are friends with him or Silver just likes them. They know that he's not some brilliant strategist but an impulse driven ape who just wants to have a good time. He's still dangerous but as long as you don't get on his bad side you got nothing to fear from him.Those who know him but are his enemies think that he's borderline mad. They know how basic he is and that most of his successes can be attributed to sheer dumb luck or just overwhelming firepower. And both could run out.And finally there is a tiny, TINY group of people who've been around him long enough to know what he's actually like. His crew. And they are the only ones who know that the jovial, goofy little idiot is what Silver PREFERS to be. That when someone pushes his buttons just right he'll take all that energy, effort and efficiency he puts into having a good time and focuses it on destroying you. They know just how fucking scary Silver can get when he gets motivated. The only other person who's aware of this is Issho. Because he's one of the very few fuckers who was strong enough to survive an encounter like that.
>>5422696A perfect example was those marines that went rouge that had that insane kid who stabbed hooks. even hooks was surprised by our brutality. honestly one of my favourite parts of this whole quest.
So how does everyone feel about continuing Wednesday?
>>5423608fine by me
>>5423608I hate wednesdayAlso every other day
>>5423639Wednesday was adorable, what the hell are you talking about?!
>>5423681Rather go to the Morticia(n)'s office myself.
>>5423770I mean...Yes?Tho this might be a good time to remind everyone that Lyda's nom de guerre happens to be Morticia(n). Du-du-du-du *snap* *snap*
You release your grip on Stussy and turn around."HOLD ON!"As you're about to leave however Peclo reaches for his scythe."You think this is over?!""Yes."Placing your hand on Argent you do the same thing to him what you did to the homies at Reijus room. He feels his gut tying into a knot. Humans are not like homies in that regard. They do not just expire on the spot when faced with such an existential threat. Their souls are tether much more strongly to their original bodies. Instead of taking the easy way out a human must decide. Fight or flight. He feels heavy beads of sweat rolling down. The pressure he feels tells him that he must make a choice. Or if he doesn't one will be made for him. He sits down. Flight."Smart. I'll see the two of you later."You return to your table feeling just a smidgen of satisfaction. It was good for an appetizer, a little warm-up before the main event. As you take your seat you look at the long line of guests in front of Mama bringing their gifts in the hope of incurring her favor, or to avoid her ire. Proper etiquette demanded that you also brought one, since you are still part of the family and all that. Because Toxin was barred from entering the kitchen when the wedding cake was made he baked one on his own. Sadly you don't think it will be appreciated, since Mamas habit is unwrapping all the gifts at the end of the party as the cherry on top.As you look away from the rolling crowd you see Nutmegs twins all looking quite nervous. They're all practically shaking."T-There sure are a lot of people here huh? Y-Y'know you can still just back down. Act like we never wanted to do anything! Right?!""Relax laddie!"Greki pats Newshi on the head."Ye got us here so ye got nothin' to worry about! Grekikikiki! So just sit back, relax and enjoy the party! Nothing like a feast just before the bloodshed! By the gods it almost makes me feel like I'm back home!""NUTMEG! These guys are crazy!""Relax bro. They are but you haven't seen them in action yet. You can trust them.""And I think you were away for too long and forgot why things are the way they are!"As the Charlotte kids are busy arguing among each other about the sensibility of your plan you keep observing the crowd, paying close attention to members of the Charlotte family in particular. The Sweet Commanders and some of the eldest kids of Big Mom like Perospero, Daifuku and Oven will be the main sources of trouble, but you can't safely disregard any of them, except maybe the children but they are not present anyway. Luckily Cracker won't be a factor so you only have to deal with 3 Sweet Commanders. Maybe you ought to thank Goofy for that one.
"Silver?""Jaws?""You got quite the expression there. I suggest toning it down before someone takes offense at you glaring daggers at them.""I'm just thinking. This is gonna be rough. Rougher than I thought.""Yeah. No kidding.""And I hear no signs of Goofy or his goons anywhere. They should be here by now!""Ignore them. Our objective remains the same with or without them."As you discuss things Omukade sits down next to you, looking even more determined than you are."You know, there is a way to even things out a bit. I know how you feel about a straightforward fight. But there is no honor among thieves and no fair fight among pirates. There is a way to... equalize things a bit.""Ugh."Jaws scoffs and gets up."I'm gonna get a drink while I still can...""What do you mean Toxin?"He takes out one of his chopsticks and you can just barely make out a greenish liquid seeping from the wood."Just a little something I cooked up. Has barely any color, no taste and no smell. Could use it to season the food and the punch a little bit. It won't do anything to people with strong constitutions and homies, because I don't think those are permitted to eat or drink anything here. But it should ease things up a bit by taking the chaff out of the equation. It'd help if we didn't have to worry about the weaklings surrounding us so we could focus on the actual threats.""Is it lethal?""No. But I imagine it'll be quite hard for them to fight as their bowels undergo explosive evacuation.">Yeah. Go ahead. We can use every edge we can get>No. We don't need to rely on petty tricks>Other?
>>5425207>>No. We don't need to rely on petty tricksNot because I'm opposed to the idea of cheating a little, I just don't understand how we're gonna enjoy one of the biggest brawls ever if everything is covered in shit
>>5425207>Yeah. Go ahead. We can use every edge we can get
>>5425207>Yeah. Go ahead. We can use every edge we can getThat shit better be undetectable
Awright!Looks like it's gonna be one hell of a party!>writing
>>5425253Good thing the guest of honor are german
>>5425255Speaking of guests, where is everyone? This are about to really go down
>>5425265It's wednesday my dude. I think they aren't available
"Go ahead. But that better be undetectable.""Who do you think you're dealing with?"Gu gets up from his seat and goes over to the rows upon rows of appetizers that have been laid out for the guests. He draws himself a glass of punch but allows a drop of the venom to slide down the ladle back in the bowl. Then he goes to sample each and every morsel that's available and he flamboyantly flicks his hand around, spraying his toxic surprise around as he criticizes or praises the chefs work. At his encouragement the other guests also partake of the food which makes him swell with satisfaction.As that goes on however you overhear something coming from Big Moms table, where the Germa are also seated. Thankfully you were not given a place there but your table is close enough that you can see everything clearly, and when the time has come you could jump into action to assist Big Moms kids with eliminating them. Vinsmoke Judge gets up from his chair and uses a fork to tap on his wineglass which gets the attention of everyone nearby, causing the bustle of the party to die down a little."I'd like to ask for your attention everyone! I'd like to make a toast!"All eyes are on him now, Katakuris especially. He doesn't show it but he feels annoyed. Probably because he already knows what Judge is about to say."To the soon-to-be strongest force in the world! And to our kids. CHEERS!""CHEERS!""CHEERS!"Everyone who could hear his toast raises their glass. That means you must as well. But as you chug rum straight from the bottle you notice that all of Big Moms kids are only sipping tea. You just about had enough of this charade. Thankfully the trumpets have arrived to your rescue.The great band begins playing their music and the choir starts singing a soft melody as the announcer gets everyone to shut up."Ladies and Gentlemen!"The sound of explosions suddenly fills the air as confetti begins to rain from the sky. Big Mom seems to be enjoying herself, like a little kid at the circus."The Royal Wedding is about to begin!"You look up and see the sky of Totland darken, the work of Zeus, to allow the great fireworks display to illuminate the sky. Big Moms jolly roger and the flag of the Germa 66 appears amidst the innumerable explosions and the fanfare escalates only further as the soon-to-be husband and wife arrive on a flying carpet. Everyone stands up and starts congratulating the pair with loud clapping as the Head Chef also starts singing. As his song is reaching its climax he stabs his kitchen knife in the ground, which starts to melt away like cream and the wedding cake the size of a great cathedral emerges from the lower level."It's about to begin..."
This display is definitely something out of a fairy tale. Especially as the flying carpet takes the bride and the groom straight to the top."Maaan that Sanji is lucky. If I'd known she was this much of a hottie I wouldn't have minded marrying her!"Yonji gives the two a dreamy look."Don't be a fool. Idiot. Once you're in Big Moms clutches you'll be under her control your entire life. That's the reason why we had to get Sanji. Remember?"Ichiji mocks his brother."Oh yeeeah.""Heh. Idiot!"Niji also laughs at him.Idiot is appropriate. But they all are. None of them but Reiju know that they are sitting in the middle of a trap. All tables around them were arranged so the top executives of the family could surround, bind and eliminate them in one fell swoop. The real joke however is that they probably won't even mind, knowing how at least one of them behaves. They'll just accept death without a care in the world. The fate of living tools.As you're looking at them with contempt the priest at the top of the cake begins reciting the holy passages from the bible as Murray pokes you in the side."Captain?""Yeah. I know. But where is that idiot? He should be here by now!">Fuck it, no time to waste! Crash this party>Wait until the last possible second. Let's see where this goes>Other?
>>5425304>Wait until the last possible second. Let's see where this goesGoober will be here. If there's one thing he's good at, it's being almost as good as us.Of course, we would have been here already. And probably stolen a bunch of shit along the way. But he'll be here.
>>5425321I mean we are already here. And we've stolen the decuplets >Wait until the last possible second. Let's see where this goesGoing in before everyone else will just get our crew fucking killed, who cares about that second rate pirate this is about not being to stereotypically Silver about the whole thing. Once the assassination attempt starts, then we can start the party properly!Does anyone have the list? I know we want Big Mom, Judge, Peclo, Du Felt dead and gone with Pinkerton less dead. What are the thoughts on the rest of em? Anyone else we should write up while we're at it?
>>5425304>>Fuck it, no time to waste! Crash this party
Alright. Looks like Silver manages to show some restraint>writing>>5425327Sussy Stussy. Professional fed
>>5425364See now I'm torn because on the one hand: Yes.On the other it'd be funny as hell to hear her make the report and request exfiltration. "Yes, Silver knows. Yes he is killing everyone, yes that includes Big Mom. No I don't fucking know why, how could I?!"
You raise your hand a little to signal him to hold back just for a little longer."But if we wait more he-""You remember what he said. Let's see how Goofys cook handles himself!"The air gets so tense that it feels like it's about to snap any moment. It's quite possible that if something spooked them the family would spring into action immediately. But for now they wait and look at the priest, who's just about to finish the ceremony."-you may kiss the bride!"After saying their vows Sanji starts lifting up Puddings veil and you see Katakuri jumping up from his seat. Your eyes return to the Straw Hats' cook and instead of seeing Pudding drawing her gun as the punchline to this cruel joke of a wedding you see her falling to her knees right in front of Sanji, the man she was supposed to assassinate at this moment. You start wondering if you missed something, if Black Leg managed to do something so sneaky it flew right under your radar. But no. A quick look back at Katakuri reveals him panicking! He quickly takes out a jelly bean from his pocket and flicks it at Sanji as he's reaching down to help a distraught Pudding. But he misses. Black Leg felt the attack coming and dodged out of the way, causing Katakuri to accidentally off the priest instead who was also attempting to finish off Sanji in Puddings stead. This whole thing just turned into a clusterfuck."W-What's going on?!""An attack?"The people in the crowd are starting to panic as they think an attack is underway. Confused and possibly terrified they all start making a run for it, leaving only the most seasoned of criminals, the Vinsmoke Family and Big Mom with her kids at the scene. Even Judge himself is getting nervous but he's a bit slow from the wine. Mama, frustrated with this turn of events signals to Perospero with her hand. The first son of the Charlotte family is all too eager to please."Assassins? Now?! Linlin we need to-"Judge tries to get up but can't. Sweet, glistening candy has locked his legs in place and like a creature of slime it swiftly moves upward to cover his entire body the neck down. The same happens to his children."WHAT?! C-Can't move! Children! Free me!""Can't father.""Ayup. None of us can move a muscle. Looks like we've been had.""MAMA-MAMA!""BIG MOM?!""Phew. I was worried for a second but it looks like in the end we still got what we wanted! Welcome... Judge.""I-I don't understand! What the hell are you doing?! T-This is a mistake! It wasn't us! We can still have the wedding!""Isn't it obvious?"At Mamas signal her children grab their guns from under the table and all aim at the Vinsmokes."We're killing you."As she gloats you look at Will who hurries away and gets everyone their weapons.
"W-WHAT?!""Haha! Did you really think I'd ever ally myself with a worm like you?! You're a joke Judge. A petty man with even smaller ambitions? Did you really think you could use me to take over the North for you without giving me anything in return! That's not how this works Judge. If only you knew your place beneath me we wouldn't have to do this. But the way things are it was just easier to get you all here, eliminate you and take those scientific weapons of yours for ourselves! Mama-mama!"Judges sons begin laughing at this."Oh man. They got us with our pants down real good! No raid suits, nothing!""Oh yeah! We're done for now!""Y-You guys... how could you be laughing at a time like this?! HOW COULD THIS BE?!"Judge doesn't realize he's the one who caused his sons to behave like that. In his utter disbelief at his childrens behavior and the reality that he's about to be killed he starts crying. Mama simply LOVES that and she's clearly savoring every drop of his misery. This is it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjUZwtZr8E0As she laughs to her hearts content you walk up to the table that the Vinsmokes are bound at and walk on top of it. Her kids all stare at you with utter disbelief. They must be wondering what's going through your head as you walk in the middle of the killzone."Ahem.""Eh?"Big Mom stops laughing and looks down at you."Silver? What... are you doing?""Hello Mama."You take a deep breath and shout."I QUIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT!""W-What?""Consider this an official declaration of war! From this point onward we're no longer friends. Now I get that this is sudden. So I'm letting you off the hook just this once. You can give up this whole wedding-murder-thing and I'll take my leave without any trouble or we can fight now. I suggest you make your choice before it's too late."Mama is shocked. Her children even more so but they actually give voice to their confusion."What did that moron just say?"From the corner of your eyes you see Big Bird himself crawling out from under a table and taking pictures."Oh me oh my! First the Germa are being targeted by Big Mom! Now Cavalier is targeting Big Mom! BIG NEWS! BIIIG NEEEWS!"As the flashes of his photograph snail go off you start hearing a rumble."Oh. Too late."The quakes get stronger as the mountain sized wedding cake explodes. From it dozens of Luffy's erupt, utterly destroying the magnificent desert and sending bits of it all over the place. For a split second everyones attention gets averted from you and at the explosion. Your crewmembers take this moment to ready themselves. Meanwhile you->Throw the first punch. Attack Big Mom>Start attacking Big Moms kids>Try to free Reiju>Other?
>>5425427Mamas gonna be more pissed about the cake than anything else and we did promise Toxin so->Try to free Reiju
>>5425427>Other?>Kill JudgeSo hear me out, we just said we'd give Big Mom the chance to respond, and Silver is a good christian lad who don't go around lying if he doesn't feel like it. But If we free Reiju, she herself has said she'd just be back to being Judges sockpuppet. So I say before we free Reiju, we *free* Reiju. Or just throw her, chair and all, somewhere slightly less unsafe.
>>5425440I'd rather kill judge in his own house after torching the place myself, make it a bit more fun. I can get behind the chair idea though.
>>5425448So you want to free Judge just to kill him? I don't know if he deserves that kind of attention, besides, *slaps the list* we're on the clock here. Lots of people currently trying to legg it who needs ventilating.I like the torching thing tho.
>>5425427>Kill JudgeWho should we attack after killing Judge though?
>>5425457Nah just leave his ass. He'll probably survive. Managed to do so in canon.
>>5425485But he's on the list? Hes enslaved his own children, mutilated the concept of family even more then Big Mom has managed. Come on, you're not serious. Are you?
>>5425440>>5425478Oooof. That's uh. That's gonna be a thing now isn't it?A'ight>writing
-take your rifle out. And point it at Judge. He gasps and starts choking on his own tears. For a moment he must've thought through some divine intervention he was going to get out of this. He was wrong. You don't even look at him when you pull the trigger. Only Reiju."Welcome to the free world.""STOP! NO!"You hear Sanji screaming in the background.BANGThe moment you pull the trigger and his fathers blood spills his body erupts in flames and he jumps in the air. Flying at you like a burning meteor he attempts to kick you but with a simple dodge you instead make him strike the table and the thick layer of candy under it. The coat of sugar that bound the Vinsmoke family cracks and shatters like glass from Black Legs attack. But that little miss didn't deter him much and he's already spinning so he can kick you in the face with maximum force. In the moment before impact Omukade slides in and stretches out his palm. With the help of Hasshoken he manages to stop Sanji before he could touch you."YOU!""Yes, me Black Leg. And you should remember exactly where you are! Maybe you should focus on the Yonko behind you and not on those who did you a favor by killing your bastard of a father!"Still holding one of Sanjis leg with one hand Gu uses the other to take out a canister from under his sash."Reiju! Catch!"He tosses the can to her."I assume that's yours!""Hey! What gives? Where are ours?!"Sanjis brothers voice their complaints."Figure it out yourselves. If you can.""Toxin. Don't waste too much time with him. We got bigger things to worry about now.""I'm TRYING!"He grunts.As you leave you look at Big Mom and get ready to pounce on her. But you notice something else that demands your attention. You see Luffy trying to do something with his stretched out arms and Katakuri almost chopping his arms off in return. Wondering what Goofy was up to you you spot one of his copies slowly and very quietly shuffling up to Mamas table. The table where Mother Caramels picture is. The picture she always keeps on her table. The one that means a lot to her.In your fury you grind your teeth together and charge the interloper, grabbing him by the throat. As your fingers wrap around his neck you realize he has no skin to speak of. It's the skeleton."C-Cavalier-san! Please! I... need to... smash the picture... to make Big Mom scream!""I'm really fed up with people spitting in the face of family!"Throwing Brook to the ground you look down at him."You want a scream? You can have it!"Taking as deep a breath as you can you howl at the heavens with all your pent up rage. And the tower starts shaking.
Okay. That is it for nowThis ended up somehow both less and more of a clusterfuck than I fearedNo matter, we move onward. With finally Big Meme this time!See y'all later
>>5425537Anons: We're gonna kill this guy. Spooky: Yea yea, don't forget about the police girl. Now what do you wanna do?Anons: Kill the guySpooky: Thanks for the run Spooks! But you gotta tell me, how'd we manage to make it into partially less of a clusterfuck? I wanna make sure to improve for next time
>>5425545I was fully expecting you to jump the gun early, thus cucking Sanji out of Pudding and triggering a butterfly effect that'd fuck the Straw Hats ten times over
>>5425547Sanji needs at least a little win. maybe having a girlfriend will finally let his character evolve past nice-guy SIMP (at worst his simpery may be contained to just pudding). here's hoping our presence will allow the straw hats to escape.
>>5425547I getcha, you bet on us being idiots... Not a bad one to be honest, but at least I figured starting a free for all by having everyone gang up on us would be... Death?
>>5425547I mean, for all that Big Mom is probably willing to do what Judge did to her kids, she actually considers them family in her own fucked up way.
I'm gonna try and run on Saturday next. Hopefully that'll be enough to get this show on the road finally.>>5425790Well Judge considered them family as well. He specifically removed all of their "flaws" as he put it because those were the qualities he hated about himself. He was a massive coward and wanted his kids to be cool, strong and hardcore. He genuinely viewed them as not just his legacy but the future of the Germa Kingdom. And in truth he didn't hate Sanji because he was a failure as an experiment. He hated him because Sanji was the most like him. Weak, frail, scared. Look at Sanjis eyebrows and then his siblings. They curl the other way. I bet if Judge took off his helmet his would curl the same way Sanjis would.The main difference between Big Mom and Judge is what exactly family is to them. Mama views herself as the center of the universe and thus her children should do as she says without question because Mother Knows Best.Judge sees his children as a transhumanists wetdream. He made what was in his eyes superior to baseline humans. And in a way he is right. Except for the part where his own shitty ideas mucked it up.
Tables, chairs and smaller things that aren't nailed down, including people of diminutive size and strength get thrown around as the force of your shout hits them. Those that are capable of maintaining their balance still find themselves covering their ears as the volume threatens to burst their eardrums. Though you do see Katakuri being quick witted and handing out earplugs made of bits of mochi, while the Straw Hats and Bege's people came prepared.One of the Firetank Pirates rushes to Bege nervously and starts shouting to him."FATHER! WE'RE DEEP IN THE PASSATA NOW! WE CAN'T WHACK MAMA LIKE THIS! WE SHOULD RUN WHILE WE STILL CAN!""Damn that Cavalier! I knew he was a liability! The crazy bastard! But I'll be damned if I let this opportunity slip away! Fire the rockets!"Two holes open up on his chest and a pair of tiny rockets fly out from it which grow into regular sized ones once they get away from him. However they never quite make it to Mama as they explode mid-flight. Most likely from the intense vibrations your voice produces. It takes Mamas henchmen to assess the situation and realize that Bege just opened fire on their queen, making him a traitor. It's abundantly clear that they no longer know where to focus, one of the two traitors or the hostile pirate crew that dropped in from nowhere."Just perfect... Two years of work down the drain! STRAW-HAT! We're gettin' outta here! You either come now or we're leavin' you!"Luffy looks at Big Mom and looks at her in frustration."One attack! Just let me get in one attack Bege! I need to know the difference between us!"He raises his forearm to his own face and bites into it. A moment later he inflates into a massive and frankly ridiculous looking balloon. But despite his odd look he manages to kick himself off the ground so fast that it takes even you by surprise. Like a rubber band that was stretched taut and then released he snapped over to where Big Mom was standing and he threw a punch."Gomu Gomu no Kong Gun!"Despite quite a bit of things distracting her Mamas reflexes are sharp like a knifes edge and she immediately raises her arm to block Luffys attack with her armament clad elbow. Despite the thunderous clap that manages to overwhelm the sound of your roar Mama doesn't even budge from the spot she's standing and instead it's Goofy who bounces off her. His body swiftly deflates as he's flying backwards and Jinbe catches him before he could fall."T-Thanks Jinbe. Okay Bege, we can leave now!">Let them leave without a word>Call Goofy a coward to taunt him into staying>Other?
>>5427945>call him gay and make fun of him for not having a cute wife>also he's a virgin
>>5427945>Are you guys REALLY going to let them run away after trying to shoot Mama?I was promised a free for all, I want my free for all. And possibly Bege's head. But hey, three birds with one stone. We get some people to clear out, give Goofy a hard time and it turns into a proper party! I do wonder what the Germas are gonna do now, if they'l try to escape, kill us or help us?Either can we still call him a coward? Cause I find that appropriate. And funny. >>5427952Yes. *a* cute wife. Goof really needs to step up his game cause we're way ahead of him.
>>5427945>Let them leave without a wordIt'll make the sting of being a weenie that much harsher.
>>5427945>>Call Goofy a coward to taunt him into staying
>>5427952This is an obvious shitpost but I get the intention. I'm accepting it due to the lack of more regular votesSo calling Luffy a coward and letting him leave wins>writing
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>5427945The dice decide1. Leave 2. Name calling
>>5427995everything i say is a shitpost but i was being seriousi want to call him a fucking virgin
>>5428005Calling him a virgin is like calling a mole dirty.If anything he's going to be confused why that's an insult or why you felt like it was something worth shouting at him.
>>5428005don't make Luffy aware of sex!do you WANT him to reproduce?!
>>5428012I mean Silver's making a serious crack at it. Have to keep the blood feud going somehow.And then the world can scream in horror when the bloodlines cross after a presumably drunken brawl between our descendants turns into the kind of sex that levels a mountain range and sinks thr island it happened on.And that's where Popeye comes from.
>>5428012yes! what would our kids do without a good rival?
>>5428020Keep killing and/or pirating until they find one?
>>5428025Luffy's line has that quality stupid though. Hard to find that grade of retardation on the open market.Only thing that comes close are world nobles and they can't fight for shit.
So find a Dragon and, well no. That wouldn't work. We'd just kill them on the spot instead of giving them to Lyda so the kids can have a playmate.
>>5427995What insult would hurt luffy the most?Something food based?
>>5428043Since Silver shares a brain cell with him, calling him a weenie should be sufficient.
You watch as the Straw Hats regroup and run up to Bege. Once his devil fruits effect applies to them they all shrink and enter the Capones body through a gate that appears on his shoe. With everyone inside Bege transmutes his own legs into tank treads and starts running away. Witnessing this nonsense makes you finally stop your constant screeching."Oh REALLY?! You're really doing this?! Cowards! THIS IS WHY YOU'RE STILL A VIRGIN! WEENIE!"You do calm yourself down since this is still effectively a warzone and you need to focus. Your crew already started fighting Big Moms forces after all. But this sudden clarity did give you a good idea. A devious one but good none the less."HEY! KATAKURI! BEIGE JUST SHOT AT MAMA AND GOOFY PUNCHED HER! You're not going to let them get away with that ARE YOU?!""Are you SERIOUS?!"Perospero shouts at you as he's trying to fend off Omukade."Brother Katakuri! Don't let this traitor confuse you! Focus on eliminating him!"Katakuri himself looks at you like he just heard the most unbelievable thing of audacity of his life. But after a moment he nods very subtly, showing that he understands what your intentions are and he's willing to go along with them. He disappears from sight and reappears in front of Bege, punching him in the face."OH NO! Brother still has his earplugs in! He can't hear us! This is horrible!"Perospero remains ignorant of Katakuris deliberate insubordination."Okay. Good. Now we may actually have a chance."You mutter to yourself."Now then-"Since Bege and Luffy are now effectively out of the picture that means Mama, who up until now had to cope with four sources of irritation, now can divert her attention solely to you."Wedding cake... Bege... Straw Hat!"Her eyes are glowing red with an unholy fury that feels like it's about to rend the world apart."SILVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER!"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYOf5DPBX8IWhile your scream shook the chateau a bit and made a mess of things her roar made the floor crack and break under her which rapidly spread to the rest of the floor. This display of strength from nothing but her sheer amount of rage is so terrifying that the fighting stops for a moment and even the up until now emotionless Vinsmokes who have no fear of death start sweating."After all I did... after all I gave to you! You have the GALL to betray ME?! SILVER!""Yes. Mama.""I should've known to not bother with the flea ridden pup of that BITCH! But she'll pay! And SO WILL YOU! With LIFE OR DEATH!"Her maddened gaze is on you and you feel a dark aura precipitates from her. But nothing else happens."LIFE! OR! DEATH!"She speaks again. You crack your knuckles in response and Mama is taken aback.>Time to dethrone an Emperor (Fight to win)>"I'm only here so I don't leave without a fight. So let's get this over with." (Fight for principles)>Other?
>>5428051>"I'm only here so I don't leave without a fight. So let's get this over with." (Fight for principles)If we hated her I would've voted for the win option but we don't (as far as I can tell.)We hate what she's done and how she views her family as disposable but on the other hand she is Nutmeg's mom and by extension our Mother in Law. Kinda hypocritical to fight for family and then off our family because they happen to be cunts.Now punching their teeth out is another matter and in some clans an old and cherished tradition. Let's make it a Hallmark moment.
>>5428051>Time to dethrone an Emperor (Fight to win)>>5428058I second the logic, disagree with the vote. >>5428055We kind of do, ish, she decided to take a massive dump on Silver's concept of family and then Nutmeg came to us and said "Yea she treats us horribly and is a meanie"On top of that Katakuri... Remember when we talked to him? "If it comes down to it will you help me take out Mama?" He is giving us his tangential approval here, let's not disappoint.
>>5428051>Time to dethrone an Emperor (Fight to win)
>>5428051>>Time to dethrone an Emperor (Fight to win)>>5428060Fuuuck yeah fair point. Changed my vote.
>>5428051>>"I'm only here so I don't leave without a fight. So let's get this over with." (Fight for principles)
>>5428064Yea, for the record I don't know if its the quote "smart" thing to do, but it would be more in line with Silver and while I don't know if we are capable, or even allowed to win, I think he'd want to give everyone a damn good show and enjoy himself when given this rare opportunity rather then holding back to "just get it over with"
Well well well. It seems like we had arguments from both sides over which path should be taken but ultimately Silver giving his all won out>writingNow please. If you would3d10+5 best of 4dc 20, crit 25

"It doesn't work Mama. Not that you'd remember."Linlin takes a swing at your taunt and gives you a big left hook. An explosion goes off in your ear as her iron hard knuckles hammer your cheek. Sent flying through several homies you land hundreds of yards away. As you struggle to stand up with your shaky legs you touch your skull and feel the sticky blood flowing down your face. There is a sharp whistling sound in your ear through which all you can hear are Mamas thundering stomps."And what are you going to do about that you brat?""Kek. Kekeke! I think that broke my skull!"You straighten your back and look Mama directly in the eye with a smirk. You lick a bit of the half caked blood off your cheek and the rest immolates. Once it's gone steam is seen escaping through the wound on your head before it closes."Huh?""Do you get it yet?As you look at Big Mom your eye darkens and you tear off both your shirt and your suit with one swift motion."Let me show you!"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYOf5DPBX8I You lurch forward while your back bulges outward as a pair of black wings sprout from it. Your teeth, nose and ears start growing outward and the hair on your body both thickens and darkens until it's pitch black. And as every muscle, bone and tissue in your body swells with unnatural strength the very sky itself starts to turn black. Despite the sun being perfectly visible in the sky a penumbra falls on Wholecake Chateau as if a solar eclipse is happening right now. Thick rolling waves of blackness wash over the battlefield and those that try to clear it find it as ephemeral as fog, completely ignoring their efforts at making it move. With your eye glowing with a feral light you straighten your back, flex the muscles of your arms and your wings with their fifty foot wingspans..Finally tall enough to look Mama straight in the eye you take a deep breath."Silver Style: Kain."Looking concerned Mama puts up her guard and in the next instant she's blown back with the sound of a distinct explosion as your fist pierces the sound barrier. Mama slides back with her armament clad forearms letting off a bit of smoke after the impact. The sound of her teeth grinding against each other is like the sound of two icebergs colliding."PROMETHEUS!""Yes Mama!"Her sun familiar flies into her hand."HEAVENLY FEUER!"She throws the sun at you and it expands into a raging inferno as it travels. Prometheus engulfs you and tries to consume your body utterly. But you pay it no mind and get on all fours whilst also using your wings to hold onto the ground. Opening your maw wide you breathe out a powerful jet of flame directly at Mama. She uses Zeus to guard herself and it works for a while as he releases the water within himself. Up until you use your mastery over vibrations to focus the fire into a deadly beam to cut right through it.
>>5428113>you tear off both your shirt and your suit with one swift motion.We have finally made it to the real yakuza hours.
Though the laser beam went through Zeus without any issues it dealt no real damage to him since he's a cloud. And Mamas body is built like an iron balloon even without haki. With it she seems nearly indestructible. But she is getting even more furious. Grabbing Zeus even more tightly she squeezes the lightning out of him and with a downward smash calls a pillar of heavenly judgment on your head."RAITEI!"As the white light engulfs you Prometheus who's still trying his best starts laughing."HAHA! How's that?!"But you barely even budge. The lightning does little harm as the fur covering your body gently guides it to the ground. But now that you've been hit by that you feel like you should respond appropriately. Spreading your wings you take off and with a single flap fly several miles in the air, fast enough to cast Prometheus off your body. The air crackles around you as your fur stands up and dark clouds begin coalescing around you. With a dive you give the lightning a target to follow and guide it to the ground. Straight to Mama. Going so fast that a cone of heat forms around your body you prepare to deliver a divekick.Seeing your approach Mama draws Napoleon and tries to parry your kick. The impact generates an explosion around you which blows Prometheus away even as he tries to return to his master. One fraction of a second later the lightning follows you but instead of hitting Mama through you Zeus intercepts and starts eating it. Getting annoyed by these two you kick yourself off of Mamas sword and seize Zeus with one hand and Prometheus with the other. One is just water, the other is fire which is vibration. Fish-man and Silver Style can handle each. With the two homies in your hands you start violently smashing them into each other in the hopes that one would extinguish the other. They scream and plead for Mama to save them, which she tries."Get your filthy hands off of what's MINE! IKOKU!"She swings Napoleon with such might that it unleashes a torrent of destructive energy. The ease with which she did so worries you. If you jumped out of its way you'd probably be wide open for a follow up attack. Instead you decide to contest it. As you point both wings at the blastwave each "fingertip" on the wings fires off focused beams of sound, each strong enough to erode stone in an instant. They converge on the attack and manage to stop it. Unfortunately that's all they can do. Letting go of Zeus and Prometheus you use your hands to pick the force behind the attack apart, plucking strands of kinetic energy out like threads from a spindle until the whole think breaks apart. Mama stands there dumbfounded even as her two homies return to her.Unfortunately you are just as stuck as she is because despite your successes it feels like you achieved nothing.>Those homies are a problem. Focus on them>Start using big attacks even if there might be casualties>Try to wear down Mama. She can't hold out forever>Other?
>>5428164>>Try to wear down Mama. She can't hold out forever
>>5428164>>Those homies are a problem. Focus on themFocus on reducing the number of enemies we have to fight, in my opinion. We're in this for the long haul.
>>5428164>>Those homies are a problem. Focus on themDisarm first, wear down once we have less of a disadvantage. That said one Hell of an opening Spooks! Yakuza style Camazots! We even stole the god damn sun!
>>5428164>Those homies are a problem. Focus on themCan we eat the sun?
>>5428164>>Those homies are a problem. Focus on them

>>5428113>Up until you use your mastery over vibrations to focus the fire into a deadly beam to cut right through it.https://youtu.be/iUaoMe7QPVg?t=41
>>5428164What kind of casualties are we talking about?Just random people, or someone we care about?If everyone we care about is clear of the blast radius, i say go big or go home.Although, everyone probably already got caught up in a few different blast radiuses by now.
>>5428201Silver learning to hone his power precisely and not just throwing biggatons and wasting energy has been a thing iirc.
>>5428201Your crewmembers kinda know your capabilities and will act accordingly. However up until now they did their best to not murder or maim any of their foes, since they are technically Silvers relatives and he wouldn't want that.However with that option you accept that both members of the Charlotte family as well as innocent bystanders (civillians) will get brutally murdered
>>5428205problem is mama's hide is tough, so in this case two two shouldn't necessarily be mutually exclusive
>>5428207ah, yeah... civilians are whatever, but the charlottes are still kinda sorta family.i mean, they treated us well enough and didn't particularly scheme against us. unlike mama.
>>5428205This is true>>5428201I mean you got Big Moms children, who we like a lot more then we don't. They are family, I mean this whole thing started because BM didn't see them as much as family as Silver does.Then you got Morgans, who probably has trouble containing his erection, and all of the cookies. They count as civilians we wouldn't want burned don't they? Shame about the cake tho, no chance something that large and not-reinforced survives this. If it hasn't already collapsed.>>5428205I mean, yea. That was a big portion of what Katakuri tried to show us.
