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!"

The Pirate Kings words ring in your ears as you break away from Mama after the last clash the entire cake covered town, or at least those who have not managed to evacuate the area yet gawk at Big Mom. After all that fighting and all the destruction that you've wrought finally there is tangible proof that what you're doing isn't futile. The Emperor bleeds. After all the effort you put into it you managed to deal genuine damage to her and not just something surface level. She can be hurt! She can be beaten! This thought that you already knew deep down spreads through the crowd and burrows into the minds of even her children, no matter how heretical they may think it is.

None of them has ever seen their mom struggle, let alone be hurt by someone. They thought they were invincible, their strength infallible. More than the legions of homies that your men have destroyed and more than all the bruises they received, this lone act managed to dampen their morale. Now there is room for doubt. And like a festering wound its taint spreads quickly. Now the Big Mom Pirates no longer have the certainty of victory.

And that's not all. The Silver Pirates may be tired. They may have given themselves a handicap by not using lethal attacks and they may be outnumbered. But now their fervor builds. Like sharks in the water they can smell the blood and know what it means. Murray roars to his fellows.
"SILVERS! DRAG THEM TO THE NEW AGE!"

After they let out a warcry the fighting breaks out again. The only two people who don't join them and coincidentally the only two people who do not react to this shift in the tide of battle are you and Mama. At first it seems like she hasn't even registered that she's been wounded. But she quickly disproves that by raising her palm and licking it clean without looking.
"SLURP. I hate the taste of iron!"
She grips Napoleon with both hands.
"COGNAC!"

The sword elongates as she swings it and its blade reaches you. Holding Argent with all your might you block her. It seems like the result of the mighty clash is a tie for a second before you are flung far away by Mama. You end up going through and demolishing five different buildings before you manage to dig the tips of your wings into the ground. Looking to the side you quickly cut a house off its foundation and fling it into the air just as Mama takes to the sky to pursue you. She punches it into smithereens without any difficulty. Flying through the pieces of flying rubble in your regular bat form you shift into your awakened form right in front of her. Using your legs you force her arms apart and with Parley you shoot through Prometheus to disperse him a little. With Argent you then attempt to cut her head off but Mama bites your sword and stops it. Struggling with all your might you're unable to free the blade from her maw. Only by screaming at her at full volume do you manage to make her back off.

As the explosion of expanding sound abates you jump away and land on the ground. Looking up you see her screaming with rage and unleashing a rain of lightning on you. Using Rankyaku with the tips of your wings you counter with an onslaught of slicing winds. Though most of your attacks collide mid air and cancel each other out several of them end up raining down on the town and laying waste to it. The buildings may be reinforced but they are still made of chocolate, sweets and biscuits. As they crumble a flood of molten chocolate and boiling sugary syrup washes over the streets, melting even more houses. If there were people in them who foolishly did not evacuate up until now they'll surely meet a grizzly end.

"Pant. Pant... At this rate the whole island is a goner!"
You mutter to yourself as you reach into one of your pockets and to your utter dismay you find nothing.
"Heh. Looks like I'm out. Poop. But at least I'm not the only one."

Mama looks down at you, her eyes swirling with madness and her mouth overflowing with saliva. She pants just as heavily as you are with the sound of her horribly growling stomach accompanying it. It also might be a stretch or a result of your head trauma but she almost looks thinner than before. If that's true then she's burning through her own stamina as well. And if what you know of her condition is correct then she'll keep going like this until she gets what she wants, no matter what. Only question is how do you capitalize on that?

>Keep mounting the pressure and hope she runs out of steam before you do
>Practically the whole island is edible. Eating some of it could help. But it would give Mama an opening
>If she's so set on killing you maybe you could stay on the defensive until she wastes away. But if you mess up and she hits you it could be disastrous
>Other?

Since you ran out of Second Winds to chew on you'll need some sort of replacement if you intend to keep on using your awakening and, well, living. And if she didn't want you eating all of her island she wouldn't have made it out of candy. However eating with Mama around is not going to be an easy thing. Luckily there is a great way to go about it that just popped into your mind. By unhinging your jaw and going on all fours you can scoop up copious amounts of the molten sugary goodness flowing around the place as well as the biscuit pavement that became nice and soggy from all the syrup. The various street trash and whatever vermin that got caught and cooked in the hot chocolate is just a tasty little bonus of protein.

Mama naturally doesn't let this happen. She can't really tell what you're trying to do, she's just in a berserker rage.
"Haha no Hi!"

Swinging Napoleon down vertically she tries cutting you in half. Following her example you raise up your open mouth and bite down on her sword. The heat of the sword is of little concern as you've been gulping down gallons of molten chocolate already, not to mention Prometheus whose flames are the ones that are trying to burn you. Even as the flames explode and engulf your head in a great inferno you don't relent and grind your teeth against the blade.
"MAMA! Pull me back quick! He's trying to eat ME now!"

BIg Mom tries to pull her blade free but you cling on and end up looking like a disobedient dog who just won't let go of its toy. Zeus also gives over his lightning to Napoleon in the hopes that it's enough to repel you. Not quite so. The red glow of your eye pierces even the orange flames of Prometheus and the growl you let out makes the roaring flames inaudible. Seeing your impudence Mama starts kicking you. It hurts but you soldier on despite the pain. For you have a plan.

"Silver Style..."

"M-MAMAaaaaAAaaaaaAAAA!"
Napoleons voice oscillates as he vibrates faster and faster.
"hEEEEEeeeellLLLPPp!"

You whistle and imbue the sound into the blade and harmonize it until it resonates perfectly with Napoleon.
"SCREAMING BLADE!"

Napoleons screaming ceases as he shatters in the middle.

>Napoleons screaming ceases as he shatters in the middle.

Made her bleed, shattered her sword, this is the good shit. I almost can't believe Luffy actually pussied out of this entire battle.

Law and Kidd ain't got nothing on us
>>
>>5440531
nah law could probably take us in a fight because his fruit is bullshit. although we would have a better time than most because we harden our organs. well unless we use haki to nullify his fruit (which is even more bullshit)
>>
>>5440542
Imma be real withchu chief.
I hate that shit so I'm not doing it
It's just another case of Haki just making literally everything else irrelevant instead of complimenting the setting
>>
>>5440544
I totally agree that was utterly stupid.
>>
Meh, anti df powers makes sense, but the most dangerous thing is when you combine them
>>
>>5440548
They make sense. But they ought to be special.
BB's fruit was supposed to be unique and have that "OH SHIT" factor because up until that point only water and sea stone did that
But it turns out literally every nigga could do it. It's not even special. And all those people who got cucked by Sugar? They just didn't want to be free hard enough
>>
I mean, it can null affects regarding you and let you hit normal, but still has intial effect.

Blackbeards makes it so you have nothing
>>
>>5440548
Gods no, it undermines the fundamental rule of the settings fightan magic: Everyone is different and you need to work around the weird and quirky rules that surround their fruit.

>>5440544
I'm with ya all the way Spooks.
>>
I mean if you get rid of the resistance haki gives to laws fruit what stops him from auto-winning literally any fight now?
>>
>>5440549
honestly I don't like that blackbeard can do it too. his fruit is basically controlling darkness (and make a sort-not blackhole). I would have preferred that if someone had a nullification devil fruit it doesn't give them anything else. you only have touch based (maybe aoe if awakened) nullification and haki.

I wonder if their is a devil fruit that nullifies haki.
>>
>>5440560
His own cowardice and desire to not fight the world if he actually goes balls to the wall with his OP-ness.
>>
>>5440560
I mean it could literally be explained by his fruit having limits... rather than the nothing that there is now
Just say it's not a god mode fruit that can do anything for crying out loud
Rather than the haki bullshit he could've said

"No my fruit has its limits"
>>
>>5440564
I mean he 100% would have used it to kill doflamingo though, which means dressrosa ends during the caesar exchange, im just saying this causes alot of butterflies if law just now auto-wins everything
>>
>>5440560
Same thing which stopped logia from being literally unbeatable before haki was introduced.
>>
>>5440568
So have you considered what limits you'll give him here?
>>
>>5440568
I what limits though? we've already seen in-quest law can cut ppl up like in canon and if haki doesn't prevent him doing that something else has to then
>>
>>5440570
that was them having an elemental weakness though, like the only thing i can think of to justify it is idk something like if someone has sea prism stone on them he can't do it, but then thtat only works for ppl who specifically prepare to fight law who are also none DF users
>>
>>5440575
I mean even in canon Haki did nothing up until he could've one-shot the emperors.
Vergo was clad from head to toe in haki and it did nothing

>>5440571
Kinda
>>
>>5440580
>Kinda
The simplest is probably requiring line of sight and a short but exploitable mental delay between deciding to cut someone up and then it actually happening. Though idk enough about one piece to know if that contradicts how his fruit works as shown.
>>
>>5440580
Yeah and then oda realized "oh shit i need to have it so law doesn't just auto-win" and think someone with a stronger haki than law being able to avoid is the best explaination we could get, like as said only other thing i can think of is something like sea prism stone having like a field of negation for laws fruit that he can't affect with it, but then every important character now needs to have some on them and for DF users it'd need to be in a way where it never touches or affects them
>>
>>5440581
law pretty much creates a bubble where he becomes super OP the size is pretty good normally but he can take years off his life to make it ridiculously large, and if the solution is just "the opponent can beat law b4 he has time to do it" then they'd be able to beat him b4 he could use any of his abilities so it'd just mean now law never fights at all
>>
Like im not against having it that haki doesn't prevent laws fruit from affecting a person on principal but i do think we need another explaination for why law isn't just an auto-win against literally everyone in the setting first
>>
The tip of the sword that has Napoleons face on it falls to the ground with an expression of utter disbelief on its face. His mouth hangs open and his eyes are fixed and glazed over.
"I... I can't feel my lower half..."

"NAPOLEON!"
"NAPOLEON!"

The two homies cry out as their comrade falls. Meanwhile Mama just dumbly glares at the hilt of her broken weapon before looking at you as you start chewing on the broken shards of the sword.
"What useless junk!"

She reaches down and picks up the broken sword who's begging her for help.
"M-Mama! Please! I feel so cold."

"I don't need no darn knife that can't cut."

"W-Wait! Mama please! NOOOOO-"

And just like that Big Mom yanked out the piece of her own soul animating Napoleon. She then put her whole hand, soul and all into her own mouth and swallowed it. Her body expanded with reinvigorating energy and the wound on her palm seals before your very eyes. As you also swallow the remnants of her sword she raises both of her hands now that she no longer needs to hold Napoleon.
"ZEUS! PROMETHEUS!"

"YES MAMA!"
"YES MAMA!"

"HOW DARE YOU KILL OUR FRIEND?!"
"HOW DARE YOU KILL OUR FRIEND?!"

The two homies get enraged and they channel their destructive energies into Mamas hands. With fire in her right and lightning in her left she brings the two together and squishes them together, creating some sort of purple orb which she thrusts forward.
"MASER HO!"

A purple beam of roaring light shoots out from the orb and threatens to consume you. It'd be easy to dodge but the humongous wave is big enough to swallow entire cities and reduce them to ash. With Big Moms kids, not to mention your own crew fighting behind you dodging is out of the question.
"What a pain. Silver Style-"
You clench your fist and pull it back. As embers and sparks of electricity flow out from it Katakuris voice echoes in your mind.
"SILVER VOICE!"

You strike forth with all your might. The lightning and fire gets pushed out of your body by the haki coursing through it. Your own energy pierces Mamas and causes a disturbance in the perfect mixture of fire and electricity she squished together, causing the whole thing to fall apart. As the purple beam gets torn to shreds Mama stands on the other side and gives you a manic glare. Her fury is palpable, like the kind one feels when the cockroach they've been trying to squash for the past hour is still standing in front of them ever defiant.
"Die!"

"No."

"Then cake!"

"No."

"Fine. I'll grind your bones to dust and have that baked!"
She raises both her hands in the air and the sky grows dark again. You feel a pulse washing over not just you but the entire battlefield. All homies within the affected area, which feels like the entirety of Wholecake Island, freeze in place.
"Come to me! MUTTERSTAG!"
Every homie excluding Zeus and Prometheus die on the spot as the soul gets torn from their bodies. Objects become inanimate again and sentient animals loose their sense of self.
>>
>>5440590
If Law can theoretically auto-win against anyone that doesn't just blitz him with an alpha strike, then he'd be too much of a threat. He can't beat every admiral he runs across without massively increasing the heat. Have realpolitik be his limiters, maybe? IIRC he's a reasonable sensible person who wants to avoid dealing with the crazies.
>>
>>5440590
I mean he didn't auto-win every fight before that. He got his nose wiped by Doffy
>>
>>5440596
I mean no offense but i don't think the reason law doesn't auto-win against everyone being that he just chooses not to is a good idea, like its not like the entire navy can all just go out and get him at once anyway, like hte most they'd probably reasonably be able to spare is like 2 admirals, which a law with no haki weakness can easily kill unless they manage to kill him with an alpha strike, plus no way they'd have let him become a warlord, it doesn't matter if law hasn't shown signs of using his fruit to its full potential the WG would immediately give him like a 2 Billion berri bounty the minute they knew he had the Op-op fruit if it was hat busted
>>
>>5440603
I'm mostly playing devil's advocate with the guy pushing the auto win thing.
>>
>>5440597
when was this? law didn't fight doffy til dressrosa, and if you mean during the flashback don't think they ever fought, and if they did it was b4 law got the fruit, since law got the fruit like 2 hours b4 corazon died hid in the treasure chest and then doffy left, like can't think of any time doffy and law fought pre-dressrosa

All the souls rush to the aid of their "mother" and congeal into a massive white soul mass above Linlins head. You take a step back as you realize what she's doing right now.
"So that's her awakening!"

She slams the whole thing down into the ground and the entire island begins shaking. To the casual observer it looks like the sky is falling while in reality it's you who's getting closer to them as the island stands up. A deep booming voice speaks, causing even a few of Mamas more seasoned children to collapse as their eardrums nearly burst.
"What. Is. Your. Wish. Mama?"

"Reduce him to nothing! ATLAS!"

"Yes. Mama."

The ground below your feet shifts as a pair of arms, each the size of Wholecake Chateau erupt from the ground. This is bad. If the very ground beneath your feet is your enemy now...

Yeah I was referring to Dressrosa where Doflamingo beat Law
And yeah, you could say that he was using Haki to do it. I'm actually fine with haki repelling his dissecting attacks.

However if haki was the reason why he couldn't teleport Doffy into the water at any point then he wouldn't have acted all surprised at Onigashima like it was the biggest revelation in the world that Haki could just straight up negate his devil fruit
>>
>>5440629
Maybe he couldn't teleport Doffy into the water cause water nulls his fruit as well?

And why he didn't do it into the air was because of that trick Doffy had where he swung from clouds

Well also with doffy they were like pretty much in the middle of the island during the fight, and don't even think laws big room managed to reach the water, so he may just not have tried it against him, and in all honesty i just don't think law fights much rteally, atleast against ppl worth a damn, like probably coasted through paradise and then spent the timeskip as a warlord probably just chilling until he contacted caesar

Yeah could be argued that one entire crew taking out a yonko is something silver could agree with though as him seeing the crew as one cohesive unit and his problem would be with 2 or more separate crews in alliance doing it though since after the yonkos dead the alliance falls apart and therefore the strength that would be needed to take the yonkos place aswell though

Doubt it, like i imagine hitting 23 would have hurt it, and with a total failure we're not even gonna scratch, either gonna completely tank it or somehow we're gonna miss completely, and i imagine we've lost now, considering even critical success ended up with a fairly equal exchange, so a failure on mamas super attack i can't imagine being anything but a fight ender
>>
>>5440697
One failure fucking us out of the entire fight after we've been doing so well would be kinda bullshit.

And honestly, I expect that she'll hit us before we had a chance to prepare the attack.

Also, c'mon, this has gotta be our second Wind, no way we can look like a pussy Spook
>>
>>5440700
hopefully, since even if she doesn't knock us out with the attack if it somehow manages to tank our super move then we're fucked anyway, since like what could we even do at that point? but if its just that something prevents us from doing it atleast we'd have the oppurtunity to try again

Even if we are just straight up out of the fight we've managed to rock the entire setting to the core. This is *NOT* supposed to be possible.

"EVERYONE! GET OUT OF HERE! IT'S TOO DANGEROUS!"

"W-What?!"

"Are you sitting on your ears?! GET EVERYONE OFF THE ISLAND!"

Your crewmates are hesitant but eventually they all start booking it. While some of the Charlottes pursue them others stay behind and Nutmeg still fused to the Decuplets stop to warn them.
"HEY! MORONS! I don't care if we're enemies now but get off this island NOW! It's gonna blow!"

You crack your knuckles because this is about to get rough. Until everyone, or most of them leave the island you won't be able to do what you want to.
"I just hope they get the civilians off..."

As you try to buy time for the evacuation effort you fight against the island and Mama at the same time. You try contesting one of the giant arms by winding up your own punch and hitting it with the equivalent of an earthquake but it's not that simple. Everything from the ground itself to the last blade of grass on the damn island is now your enemy. The vegetation under your feet grows rapidly, entangling your legs and doing whatever it can to disable you. As vines constrict and hold you down the giant fist hammers you into the dirt. Though the homie Atlas is practically beating itself up it doesn't seem to care. It has its order. Killing you. If that entails destroying itself it will gladly do it. Over and over again it hammers you with great zeal. Even when you try to counter it the force of your punch may break off great chunks of its arm but it doesn't matter as there is plenty left.

This brutalization goes on for several more minutes until you hear the last person leaving the island itself. Took them long enough. Battered, bloody and very tired you use your leftover stamina to break out of the hold and fly to relative safety. Sadly this was necessary as if you did it earlier you would've wasted your stamina running away and may not have had enough for the attack itself.
"Alright Mama... Let's see if you can withstand this!"
Flexing you imbue your whole body with armament and start increasing your internal temperature.
"SILVER STYLE: ESCATON- Huh?"

Suddenly the ground beneath you opens up as the homies face shifts there and swallows you up. It shuts its mouth as you go off and the surface of Wholecake Island cracks as the explosion hits the insides of Atlas. But it's nowhere near close to breaking apart. As the homie burps loudly you manage to jump back to the surface covered in soot and with several of your bones broken as you had the weight of the whole island crushing you. You pant as you look at your very human looking hands. Feeling practically dead on the inside as your body is almost completely empty it becomes obvious that you can no longer use the awakening.
>>
>>5440735
Foolish rock man. The insides are the most vital part.

>>5440747
Not when its all just animated rock and dirt.

"Mama-Mama!"
Even in her deranged state Mama still finds your sight to be funny.

And why wouldn't she? You try to grab your weapons just to defend yourself with something but your fingers simply don't have the strength needed to carry them and they fall to the ground. Worse yet, all the wounds you've been keeping closed have reopened, spilling copious amounts of blood on the ground.

"Nyehahaha! You're spilling your guts out Rocks! Finally after all this time I managed to beat you! But because of our long history together I'll let you live... if you get on your knees and start begging!"

"Pant. Pant. COUGHCOUGHCOUGH! A-are you really letting me live if I ask nicely?"

"If you get on all fours and lick my boots and give me my cake then sure! I'll even get you a nice ball and chain just so you can never escape or disobey me! Mama-Mama!"

"I'd rather die!"

"Heh. Not like I expected you to agree or anything. But fine. Now... goodbye Rocks."
Prometheus starts to expand, revealing the true magnitude of the little fire. He grows so large you can no longer see the sky no matter where you look. Only flames are looking down at you from the heavens.

"K-Kek! Yeah. I guess this is goodbye. But I also got something to tell you Linlin..."

Now that I think about it in more depth, wouldn't someone that uses family as slaves be on top of Silver's fuck up on sight list? There really is no way things could work out with Big Mom in the long term. They're like two sides of the same coin when it comes to family.

Also the plan was to follow the classic three arc story.
Arc one: We establish the players and motivations
Arc two, we are here, the hero of the story gets shafted which builds suspense and shit
arc three: Winning and celebratory milk

So, I imagine Morgans will be calling US the 5th Emperor?

Since we fought off Big Mom, and were the center of attention the whole fight, nevermind how much our battle destroyed.

While 'Goofy' appeared for 2 seconds and ran away like a little bitch.

>While 'Goofy' appeared for 2 seconds and ran away like a little bitch.
Proof that training arcs on isolated islands are a waste of fucking time. Get in a ton of dangerous fights like a real pirate.
>>
>>5440854
Sink or swim bitch, it's a tried and proved method.
>>
So Spook, have we done any permanent damage to the big mom pirates?

Since every Homie is now part of Atlast, and Napoleon is ded?

And several members went rogue mid fight?
>>
>>5440815
Silver felt everyone leave the island so they should be fine.
>>
>>5440868
I imagine her reputation is absolutely shot to shit, and all the commotion is bound to make the other emperors get ornery. I wouldn't be surprised if they start to push her now that everything is in disarray.
>>
>>5440852
I mean they already were to an extent.
But fighting one of them on pretty even grounds, making them pull out their secret trump card *and* wrecking their seat of power?
At this point we've basically done the announcement ourselves and not dying will be enough to destabilize everything... And make the Big Mom pirates have to chase us down, their entire reputation is now wholly dependent on us dying sooner rather then later because every two-bit idiot is gonna try them, people will stop coming to the tea parties because clearly LinLin isn't all she was hyped up to be any more.
And more importantly, and interestingly, people are going to start courting us instead.
>>
>>5440877
Yeah, but on the other hand

Everyone saw WHY she was feared...
>>
"I'm killing ya. And there is nothing you can do about it."

"Kill. Me? Mama-Mama! Bloodloss must've gotten to your brain Rocks. Look at you. You're already one leg in the grave!"

"Kek. Yeah. When has that ever stopped me?"

"Huh?"

"So Linlin. What do you want me to tell your family?"

"PROMETHEUS!"

"Weird but okay."

As she brings down her hand to guide the flames of Prometheus you jump right at Big Mom with your fist ready. You zip up to he so fast she's forced to parry you with a punch of her own. A black storm of lightning erupts on impact and you smile. Prometheus screams above as the violent winds blow his great flames away and even Zeus is struggling against the deluge of energy. Your fists are blown apart and Linlin swings with her other arm, trying to swat you away.

"Red Voice!"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZh1qzjM8PI

With an unbroken smile you grab the incoming fist with both arms and toss it to the side. As Big Moms arm passes in front of you and as her elbow is right where you need it to be you strike it as hard as you can, causing that whole arm to go numb. Transforming into a regular bat just so you can stay in the air and reposition yourself you go to her leg to kick her in the ankle, then fly upward to headbutt her stomach. Mama helplessly falls onto Zeus as she starts gasping for air.

"MAMA! WHAT'S HAPPENING?!"

"Kekeke! That's right! No swords, no guns, no awakening and everything on the line! I haven't felt like this since Katakuri!"

Zeus and Prometheus angrily try to shoot you out of the air but it's futile. With nobody else to worry about, no tactics to concern yourself with and a clear goal of killing Big Mom your mind is liberated to focus solely on the fight. Just the way the Red Voice likes it. Back into bat form you go and dodge around both the fire from above and the lightning from below. As you fly all over the place you change back into human shape to deliver one or two blows wherever you can. And Big Mom feels it. Her emaciated body is nowhere near as resilient as at its peak. But more than that you feel the haki flowing freely throughout your body and into hers. Each strike has weight and each one moves her. Even as she tries to cover herself in armament where you're about to strike her sparks simply fly off on impact and her guard crumbles under your knuckles.

Once it feels like she's been sufficiently pummeled you fly up, grab her by the head and push her off of Zeus. The cloud tries to catch you after falling off but Big Moms hefty body simply goes through him as you push her harder and harder towards Atlas.
"HNNNG! BREAK YOU STUPID ISLAND! SILVER VOICE!"

Putting every last ounce of your power into pushing Mama into the dirt you smash her into Atlas. More black lightning erupts and her body starts digging into its crust. More than that you feel the walking island itself sinking back into the bedrock from which it rose.

>Putting every last ounce of your power into pushing Mama into the dirt you smash her into Atlas. More black lightning erupts and her body starts digging into its crust. More than that you feel the walking island itself sinking back into the bedrock from which it rose.

Oh man this just reminds me of that scene with Blackbeard rolling dice or whatever to see if his crew should immediately kill Silver to prove a point about his luck. This is why you don't fuck around playing games with Silver.
>>
>>5440897
I'm sure BB is both tremendously relieved and extremely salty he never got Silver on his side. And it would have been so simple for him.
>>
Zeus and Prometheus hurry after you and start screeching.
"MAMA! MAMA!"

"How could this happen?! How DID this happen? He was out! He was done! How-"

"Urgh-"
You groan as you rise from the crater.
"I'd like to know myself. Sometimes this... thing happens when I get really pissed off and I just punch through someones armament like it's nothing. Happened with this giant robot. Happened with Jinbe, then again I did not know back then haki was a thing. Probably a bunch of other times too but my head doesn't work good with all this blood out of it. Anyway-"
You reach down and pull Big Moms buried head out of the dirt and start strangling her.
"Goodbye."
Mama does not wake up despite you choking her and her three homies can not act fast enough.
"Sorry Mama. I promise I won't hurt your family."

>>
So, idea for aftermath if we killed her

We give Katakuri 2 options

Either he can take control of the remains of the Big Mom Pirates and keep everything going without her protection.

Or he can join our Crew and give us the fleet of an Emperor. Essentially changing things up with us taking 'Mama's' place and placing all her Islands under our protection.

Like Outer Heaven and Fishman Island.

Option A is wiping our hands of the affair

Option B is being a typical Pirate and taking all we can.

Also have some respect for the character. We just killed a fucking Emperor. We just did the god damn impossible here and people arn't satisfied with that and wanna go for some narrative grave robbing on top of that? No, just no. Learn to take the win people.
>>
Also, logically, if we take Fleet as well, then chances are we will get Germa as well

Since Judge is ded, Reiju is in love with Gru, and she is in charge of Germa now as the eldest presumably.

In other words, they will become family, just not in the way mama wanted...
>>
>>5440932
>Reiju is in love with Gru
it's kind of the other way around.
>>
>>5440953
Pretty sure she fell for him 10 minutes ago
>>
Pretty sure the CRACK was probably Katakuri punching us out since he foresaw us killing Big Mom.

Another thing to consider, Goofy and his merry band of disappointments. Dude just ran away from a fight after only throwing a single punch, and one of his crewmen went right for Big Mom's family photo.
>>
>>5440985
Real gigabrains know that "crack" was just Lyda realigning and reattaching our spinal cord after Big Meme one shot the shit out of us at the wedding and we've been in a hallucinatory coma this entire time.

That would be such a cockblock if we didn't actually kill Big mom so it better not be that.

>>5440909
>>5440985
That'd be really dumb, I hate that kind of fake out cliffhanger.
>>
>>5440852
We were already called 5th Emperor and now there's one less Emperor so...
>>
Literally everyone fled the Island, so probably not gonna happen.

Also, Katakuri will probably be happy to get rid of her considering all the shit she has caused for the family.

Spooks I was the anon who said if we can't win the game, change the game. Haki is bullshit, but it works on a general premise. Finding the seams is Silver's game.
His entire existence is finding seams in the game.
>Slave on a World Government Island
Where that is supposedly banned and he meets, befriends, and is mentored by a notorious former Pirate
>Is from West Blue where the Five families reign supreme
And our first arc was ridiculous, and hilarious as hell.

Could've lived like kings. But Silver Pirates are not built like that.
>Mary going back to Marines after joining and training in CP. Lucci seeing us as the reason for his existence and training
Very good stuff. Enies Lobby that you made was awesome. Still remember Marcy fucking up Kalifa and Nami holding her face from the aftermath.
Awesome job Spooks. Great QM. I always have a good time with your threads

Murray, Hagetaka, Sister, Will, Nutmeg, Dexter, Pepe, Lydia, Zombie daughter, Greki and everyones fav Spikey bitch.

Thats 11 crewmates, meaning a total of 12 with us added.

Too say nothing of Sandersonia and the Decuplet siblings.

Wouldn't that be something, she gets her neck broken but manages to pull through. Not many can manage that. Even fewer without further complications. Too bad for her that Silver would still hear her heart beating. Truly the possibilities for this hanging cliff are endless.

One twist. That's all it took. Mamas withered neck cracked and now her head sits at an odd angle and her blank, lifeless eyes stare into nothingness. As her limp body hits the ground Zeus and Prometheus let out a hollow shriek as their coalescent forms explode into the elements that made them up with the glue holding them together dead and gone. Fire rains on the ground and a thick cloud engulfs the entire area. Slowly but surely the moisture from the clouds chokes out the flames, leaving only smoke and steam that shrouds the place. But none of that matters now.

On your knees and panting with your fingers still wrapped around Big Moms neck you slowly get back to your senses as you realize what you happened. Pulling back you look at your hands in horrified disbelief. You did it. You actually did. It's over. And as soon as that thought crosses the threshold of your mind blood starts trickling from your nose and connects with the stream pouring from your mouth. With a spurt your wounds all open up and you fall over right next to Linlin. With the enemy gone you can no longer muster the strength to hold it all together. As the adrenaline is flushed from your systems your vision blurs as the strain of exhaustion and the wounds catches up to you. The last thing you see before things start to blur away is the broken body of Big Mom lying next to you in a pool of your own cold blood.

"Ma-ma..."
You gurgle.
"I'm... sorry."

"Silver..."
Big Moms angry, ethereal voice is the last thing you hear as you finally lose consciousness.

Captain Silver was no longer aware of his surroundings after that. He did not bear witness as the shreds of Mamas soul that were severed from their hosts on her death came to life. From the still warm corpse, from the murky air and from the charred ground still twinkling with embers shards of life fluttered out like fireflies. One by one they came together and wrapped themselves in a funeral gown of the mist blanketing what was but mere hours ago the seat of her power. The withered, gaunt, translucent hag gnashed her sharp teeth together in a fit of rage.
"Silver! You'll pay! You'll pay for everything you did to me! And when I have the power of Rocks in my hands I'll butcher everyone you hold dear! Do you hear me?! Everyone!"

She moved in to possess the nearly dead body of Silver and once she took possession of it she'll use a fragment of her soul to restore it to prime condition. Then she'll finally be able to lay her hands on everything. One Piece will only be the beginning. But as she touched Silvers body and by extension his soul Mama quickly pulled her hand away. She felt a chill run along her spine colder than even the embrace of the grave and she heard a growl but when she turned to look at its source she saw nothing. A moment later her spirit, the last thing she managed to preserve out of her being with the awakened power of her fruit was gone. Were there any witnesses or indeed, any form of life remaining on the island and were they a safe enough distance away they could've seen shadows move within the fog that they couldn't quite describe, and hear an old woman dying a death most foul.

Only several hours later did you finally manage to wake up to the steady beeping of some machine hooked up to you. The surroundings are not familiar to you so naturally you're suspicious of things.
"Did I die?"

"Not yet."
A voice responds.
"But you did call me an angel when I pulled you out so you got close."

"Poison Pink?"

"Just Reiju please."

"Where am I?"

"The Germa Fleet. I brought you here once I heard things dying down. I found you next to Big Mom. Congratulations. Looks like you were more tenacious. But you were badly injured so I brought you here. I had our best doctors take a look at you. With Father gone they can not disobey me."

"Why?"

"Call it professional courtesy. But I must say you did not make it easy. Our surgeons kept passing out in your vicinity even though you were unconscious."

"Thanks."

"Don't mention it. I was just returning the favor. Though I'm not too happy about it my father deserved no less."

"How are you?"

"Not sure. Though I was not stripped of my emotions feelings will not get you far in this line of business. As such I don't feel too strongly about him. But he was still my father on some level. I can't say the same about my brothers, especially Sanji. Ichiji, Niji and Yonji are happy being unshackled but they'll still attempt to kill you out of principle. Only the fact that they also kept passing out prevented them so far. Sanji though, I don't think he took it well. He really was too good for this family."

"Uh-huh. One more question. Where are my men?"

"Both them and Sanjis friends managed to evade the fleets of Big Mom. Her children were too scared and disorganized to pursue them effectively. Sanji and his friends hid on one of the islands while the Firetanks split from them and escaped Big Moms territories. The Straw Hats are apparently waiting for their captain who engaged one of the Sweet Commanders. As for your friends, nobody knows where they went. They simply disappeared."

"I know where they are-"
You yank out the wires attached to you and attempt to get out of the hospital bed but you collapse on the floor the moment you put any weight on your legs. They don't simply refuse to obey, there is simply not enough things left intact there to support you.
"Fine... I'll crawl."

You try to use your prosthetic to move because that doesn't rely on weak fleshy bits to move but Reiju picks you up and puts you back to bed before you could go far.
"Our science is one of the most advanced in the world. But our medicine is more focused on keeping someone in a fight rather than healing. It's cheaper to make new soldiers."

"Let me go!"

"You wish your enemies to see you like this? Weak and vulnerable?"

"Fine. You made your point."

"Good. Now please stay put. I'll have the chefs make something easy to eat. You must be hungry."

Reiju struts out of the hospital and leaves the doctors to tend for you. They are quite fearful at first but once they realize they can approach you without their brains shutting down they do start giving you medical aid. After examining your x-rays closer they seem to be at a loss for what to do so they simply inject you with various medicines and hope for the best. Among which were copious amounts of opiates for the pain. Which you don't mind one bit because the pain was simply unbearable. However they quickly leave you be once the automatic door opens.

"Leave us!"
Reijus brother walk in one by one with the biggest smile on their faces.
"Morning sunshine! Slept well?"

"Heh. He looks quite tuckered out! He probably has enough drugs in his system to kill an elephant!"

"We came to thank you for taking father out. His brilliance will be sorely missed but his weak ambitions and stupid plans won't. Now that there is nobody left to tell us what to do we can finally turn things around."

"Yeap! Who cares about ruling the North Blue? And who thought working as mercenaries and assassins was a good idea anyway?"

"Now that we're free we can just cut out the middle man. We can just extort people for all they have and kill them all if they refuse to pay. We can really start our own golden age now!"

"And while doing that we can just sell you to the government in return for what's rightfully ours!"

"Diplomatic immunity from the government and a license to raid everyone else with no repercussions! Might as well start calling ourselves the Sanchibukai!"

"Hehe! We might even be able to push our luck and get ourselves appointed as world nobles by handing over your head to them!"

They all have a hearty laugh at you before they stop.
"But you did save our lives from Big Mom."

"And we do have our own honor."

"So as a gesture of respect from three nobles to another we won't do any of that!"

Ok so their idea of what they wanna do when the world is their oyster is "Be a pirate?" Cause that sounds literally like what a pirate does. I think Silver could appreciate that and there might be hope for these idiots yet. On the other hand they did just call us the N word.

>Teach them a thorough lesson why they shouldn't talk to you like that
>Don't touch anyone with my flag until you can kill me and you can have as much fun as you want
>>
>>5443934
Well to be perfectly fair, Silver technically IS a noble
He married into royalty and everything
>>
>>5443954
And I'm pretty sure we actual had that conversation with Reiju when we first met.

I'd also love for some colonials to actually use that argument and tell people "Well you are black so technically..." in fact if I ever do go to the US I think I shall.

>>5443920
>Teach them a thorough lesson why they shouldn't talk to you like that

>>
Taking a deep breath from the respirator you're hooked up to you look at the three.
"I don't feel like fighting for a while now. If you touch anyone with my flag you'll pay. You want trouble with me, come and kill me. Otherwise flock off."

"Heh. Looks like he still has plenty of guts in him eh?"
Yonji smirks.
"But that can be arranged!"

As a jest he closes his fist around the tube that's delivering fresh oxygen to your mask and he laughs at this with his two brothers. He's about to end the joke and release his grip when you start whistling Bink's Sake. Their laughter abruptly stops. All three of them look like they are experiencing extreme vertigo as they start stumbling around the place. Ichiji holds his head and complains about immense headache, Niji starts screaming how he can't hear anything but a loud ringing and Yonji straight up collapses as he starts vomiting on the floor. Their pleas for help turn to screams of agony as blood starts dripping from their ears and as you intensify your assault of their inner ears.

All of the symptoms however stop once you cease your whistling.
"You can do as I said. Or I can keep whistling. Pick."

As they slowly unravel what just transpired they look at each other with expressions of horrid understanding and quickly come to an agreement.
"L-Let's get out of here. Hospitals bum me out!"

"Y-Yeah."

"And I don't wanna be near this thing anymore!"

"SHUT UP YONJI!"
"SHUT UP YONJI!"

A bit after they leave Reiju returns to the room with a big cauldron on wheels full of warm soup.
"Are you the one who knocked out my brothers outside the room?"

"I did nothing after they left."

"Ah I see."
She rolls the cauldron over to you.
"If you don't mind I saw you fighting Big Mom. I assume those pills were some sort of drug?"

"It's food."

"So if you feed enough you could recover?"

"I could maybe stand."

"Alright."
She grabs about a dozen IV bags and dumps them all into the cauldron before getting a spoon.
"Now say Ah."

As you suspected despite eating plenty that's still only enough so you don't die if you're taken off life support. After removing all the wires you transform into a bat and ask Reiju if you could catch a ride on her head. Thankfully she had no reservations about helping you get back to your friends and so the two of you leave the Germas mobile kingdom using her raid suit.
>>
"Are you sure this is the right spot?"
Reiju asks you as you hover over an empty patch of the sea.

"Yeah. Watch."
You let out a sharp whistle and the previously calm sea begins foaming. A few seconds later the Dauntless erupts from below and its coating bursts open.
"Jaws rounded up all the territory slugs here and gave them a break. The plan was that we'll hide here until things calm down so we can leave underwater."

"That's pretty smart of you."

"It wasn't my plan. Now go down please."

Reiju lands on the deck of the Dauntless and the others quickly surround her. Gu is especially thrilled about her presence.
"MISS REIJU! Thank the heavens you made it out! Are you alright? Were you injured? The doctor could-"

"I'm fine. Thank you! But your captain may need your help."

"SILVER!"
"SILVER!"

"Hey everyone."

Nutmeg quickly rushes over and snatches you from Reijus head.
"Oh my poor little Silver! W-What happened to you?"

"More importantly, what happened to Big Mom?"

"Well Jaws what happened to her is that she's dead. Now can we please move on? I'm-"

"SILVER!"
Marcella shouts.
"Do you know what you're SAYING? Did you ACTUALLY kill one of the Four FUCKING Emperors of the FUCKING SEA?! T-That's insane! Impossible!"

"Yes. I did. And Hook I know exactly how hard that is. Which is why I want nothing to do with any of this anymore! I just want to lie down, rest and not think about this. Preferably ever again. Mama is gone. End of story. It's over. Now leave me be. I'm tired."

"Silver listen-"
Now Murray steps up.
"I know this is hard but now's really not the time for that. You did not just shake the table a little. You kicked out one of its legs! The whole empire Mama built will come crashing down! And who knows what else it will drag down with it?"

>Fine. Let's confront the Charlotte kids

They are family and we did promise mama we wouldn't hurt them, that probably includes not letting them be killed, maimed or imprisoned because of this whole thing.

That and let's be honest any scene is going to be fucking fire!
>>
>>5443986
>Fine. Let's confront the Charlotte kids
Can't leave such things unfinished.
>>
>>5443986
>Fine. Let's confront the Charlotte kids

we need to find katakuri, since he's probably the most popular choice for captain of the BM pirates now
>>
>>5443986
>Fine. Let's confront the Charlotte kids
Don't want to let big bro down.
>>
>>5443992
I thought we were the best choice for captain of the BM pirates?
>>
Our best bet rn probably is having katakuri round up all the remnants of BMs crew, taking over everything and then putting them and their territories under us, since when the other yonko hear BMs dead they're probably going to go after their territories, or atleast blackbeard will
>>
>>5443992
Imo, Katakuri would be the steward of the Toto land islands while Silver and the Silver Pirates become the new overlord of Big Mom's territories and tributaries.

>>5443996
Yeah something like that.
>>
>>5443996
we probably need to move mom's rio poneglyph. we cant count on anyone else to defend it from the people who truly need it.
>>
>>5443986
>Fine. Let's confront the Charlotte kids
They are family, after all.
>>5443995
Yes anon, I'm sure that after killing Big Mama, Perospero and others like him would be dying to follow us. Katakuri is the way to go.
>>
>>5444001
>The people who have been ruled exclusively by fear their entire lives are going to oppose the one cunt they've ever met who might actually be scarier then their mother
Are you absolutely certain?
cause while it might not be appreciated I think they could accept it. Especially since we're ever so slightly less evil then Big Mom and actually cares about our adopted family, enough to ensure nobody else died.
>>
>>5444004
Yeah but the thing is pretty much the entire family has nothing but respect and admiration for katakuri, if he tells them to get in line they will
>>
>>5444004
Just saying emotions might be running wild at the moment and we have a perfectly friendly and strong ally with the support of most of his siblings in Katakuri who could ease their worries. No need to go all LONG LIVE THE KING about this.
>>
>>5444007
You are of course right, but it would absolutely humiliate him. Quite a few of the siblings would inevitably see him as the man who sold out the family to their mothers murderer. Any resentment for us would be transferred to him.
It would be much kinder to simply say that we're the big cheese, and let him step in.
>>
>>5444012
I mean anyone who'd think like that will see him like that if he does anything but immediately try and kill us, so like unless we want to put on a show off katakuri trying to kill us and us "sparing" him and putting him under us don't think it'd be any different
>>
Alright. Time to confront the kids whose mom you just murdered!
I'm not sure there is a way to write it so it makes even a lick of sense

>>
>>5444017
>Sells out the family
>Preserves a measure of independence and dignity

It's almost semantics but, but, I think there is an important distinction there.

"HNNNNNG! Fine. You're lucky that I'm this tired or I'd be on fire now."

"Silver..."

"Yes Nutmeg?"

"IF YOU BURN MY CLOTHES I'LL SKIN YOU ALIVE!"
Nutmeg shrieks as she gives you a noogie.

"OWOWOWOW! WATCH THE HEA-"

Thankfully Nutmeg stops bullying you once blood squirts out of your dome like champagne after you shake the bottle. Stitches quickly patches you up as much as she can but you specifically tell her not to use too many bandages so that it wouldn't be visible that you're gravely injured. After that you have everyone get ready and Murray steers the Dauntless towards Wholecake Island where the Charlotte family have gathered. You'd think that they'd be splitting up and searching for you wherever they can. But you guess they must've found her. Or rather they realized the moment all the homies in Totland were rendered lifeless.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6NFQ9iJFg70

You count the voices of 82 of Big Moms children. That's the ten Decuplets on your side minus three, one of which is Beges wife Chiffon, the other is her twin Lola and the last is Pudding. All the others are right there, huddled together in the center of the island. Right around the area where you left her. You can clearly make out their sorrow from the sound of their voices. Especially those of the youngest children whom the older ones are trying to console to the best of their abilities, despite their own sadness. Whether they feared or loathed her, Linlin was still their mother in the end.

But their mourning is simply not allowed to proceed as they slowly, one by one become aware of your presence which sullies the site of their grief. Sorrow is replaced by unrelenting hatred as the footsteps of your crew moving in unison becomes audible. Those who were holding the little ones up until now quickly move them behind the crowd to safety while the most senior and most powerful members all take point. It becomes clear that the one and only reason they haven't yet opened fire on you is because Katakuri has the presence of mind to hold them back. They listen to him, for now. But who knows how long until the tension makes their emotions snap.

"Cavalier!"
Katakuri shouts. The coldness in his voice is not something you expected but it makes sense. Now more than ever he must be that ideal big brother their siblings see in him, their very last bastion of hope in this world.
"You must have a death wish coming back here!"

"BROTHER! LOOK!"
One of the other children start shouting.
"It's them! Nutmeg and those other bastards! MAMA DIED BECAUSE OF THEM!"
You can see Katakuris frustration as he glances back. The last thing he needs right now is people getting emotional and riling up others.
>>
So we taking them as subordinate crews? Most of them probably hated their mom deep down anyway since she was a pretty crap parent.

So Spook, how did fights do after we hit snooze?
>>
Better to take control of the situation and fast. As you take a step forth loud cracking can be heard. You're pretty sure those were your bones. It takes genuine effort just to keep standing and the pain is unbearable. But you must keep it together just a bit longer.

"No. It's because of me."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RDewfr_Y_5g

"Look around. The town. The island. The homies. Mama. It was me. All they did was keep you off my back. I am Cavalier Silver. I killed Big Mom."
Your brazenness manages to attract everyones attention for better or worse.

"Then... That's what we'll carve on your headstone CAVALIER!"
Perospero creates a bow made of candy and tries to get the others to act.

"Go ahead. If you think you could've taken out Mama at any point. But make sure you tell your family everything you want to tell them before you begin."

"Y-YOU-"

"Enough Brother Peros! Let me handle this."

"R-Right brother. But make sure you make him experience the full wrath of the Charlotte Family!"

"Hmph. So Cavalier. Before we do this. Why come back? Have you had enough of living? Or did your conscience not let you leave after killing Mama? Is that it? Do you seek to atone for your crimes? Or have you come to mock us in our time of grief? HUH? ANSWER ME!"

You take a deep breath.
"I killed an emperor. We all know what that means-"

>-but you're free now. I'm leaving you alone. If you want Mamas territory, keep it

>>Kaido, Marines, Pirates and those other 2 unimportant emperors will want to take a slice of your Candy pie. Meaning more and more attacks over time till you either prove yourself or nothing left.

If we left them on their own they'd 100% start dropping, other ppl are gonna start coming in trying to start shit without BM here to act as a deterrant and katakuri can't be everywhere at once, so 100% some of the sibling would die trying to fend invaders off

Wait shit I like the thrust of this one.

>>5444071
Ignore my original vote
>>
We ask Katakuri and them if he genuinely misses her?
>>
>>5444072
I liked everything up to "Never come back" because if you remember this whole thing started because Big Mom didn't treat her family in a way Silver approved of, and that included making a fake marriage.

>You're my family and everyone gonna be coming for you. Which sounds like fun but I don't want my family to start dying everywhere
>-you can work under me or you can be my enemy. Your choice

>>5444072

Kay, hmm, so think we will be rolling or narrative?

Cause Katakuri was somewhat in on our plans and I feel he would know this is best for his family, regardless of feelings.
>>
>>5444086
Katakuri isn't an idiot, he probably already knows we came back with a reason, otherwise he would have already opened fire. That being said it's a bitch to be confronted with such a big decision after basically just finding your mother's corpse so I really don't know how they'll react to any of this.

"-I am the Emperor now. So listen. I made a promise to Mama before I broke her neck, that I would not harm you. Here's my offer. Kaido, Black Beard, Red Hair, The Marines, Pirates. When they hear what happened here they'll want a piece of your candy pie. And you can no longer hide behind Mamas back. Everyone will know you're not unbeatable. More and more of them will come every day until you either prove yourselves or you fail and will loose everything."
You spread your arms.
"Here's my offer. Why gamble? Swear yourselves to me and you'll keep your peace! You'll live under my protection and it will be like nothing happened. What do you say?"

"SCREW YOU!"
Perospero screams.
"Y-You think you can just take everything away from us and offer it back to us in exchange for slavery?! AND ACT LIKE YOU'RE DOING US A FAVOR?!"

"It's not slavery. It's an alliance. You'll work under me but for yourself."
Taking a step forward you open up your shirt and expose your chest.
"If that bothers you that much then take your shot. But you better hope it kills. And that the next thousand does so. And the next! And the next! Until you've proven yourself to be an Emperor! Come on! DO IT!"

Perospero looks like he's about to shoot you. But perhaps he is smart and deep down realized that you're right or his faith in his families strength is simply so shaken he can't bring himself to do it. Seeing this Katakuri gently pushes him back and takes center stage.
"Why do you care? You want soldiers is that it?"

"No. I do my own work. But whether you or I like it or not you are my family. I simply don't want my family to start dying everywhere. That's the only reason why I did all that. Tell me. Did Mama care? Did you? You spit in the face of your dads and stab each other in the back when convenient! Mama invited people with open arms only to lure them into a trap! It disgusted me. But now if you so choose you may learn what a real family is like. One where you don't have to watch your own back or hate each other."
You extend a hand.
"So? What do you choose?"

Katakuri sighs.
"Are you saying you'll guarantee our safety if we accept?"

You nod.
"Yes. But no more homies. And no more slaves. Those other people who live here also get their freedom. Like you."

"Then... I don't think we have much of a choice."
Katakuri walks up and shakes your hand.
"I accept."

"BROTHER!"
"BROTHER!"
Several of the children shout.

"Listen brothers and sisters. I can't force any of you to follow me. But the way I see it this is the better of the two options."
He looks back at you and you exchange a nod.
>>
Alright. That's it for today.
We'll elaborate on that a bit more next time. However it's time for me to clock out.

>AN EMPEROR FALLS! SILVER STRIKES GOLD

At the annual gathering at Totto Land for Big Mom's Tea Party, an unexpected turn took place for the Pirate Crew, as what was meant to be a Union between the Big Mom Pirates and Germa 66 fell out of order.

Several betrayals took place on a day of what was intended to be an alliance, be it the Food themed Empire having planned too kill the Kingdom of Science, 'Capone' Bege planning an assasination and rescue of the Royal soldiers alongside the Strawhat Pirates, and most shocking of all.

The Silver Pirates full on fighting their former allies.

The exact details of why are unknown, and in the long term, unimportant, what truly mattered was the outcome of that day. Aside from the petty details of all 3 of the former groups escaping unharmed.(Aside from one Vinsmoke Judge, may he rest in piece with the new hole in his forehead given generously by Cavalier) the outcome of the match between the Silver Pirates and the Big Mom Pirates had changed everything.

By Cavalier Silvers hands, the man who struck down Mariejois, burned Ennies Lobby to the Ground, and creator of Chaos itself battled the Empress of Souls to the Death.

Over a fierce battled that lay waste to all of Wholecake Island, of which sent everyone on it packing and killed over half its population, of which merely lasted 3 hours as the entirety of the Island broke down to bedrock, one absolute truth rang out as Cavalier lay standing.

Big Mom, much like Whitebeard unfortunately was not 2 years ago, was slain.

Cavalier reigning supreme as he proved his Title as the 5th Emperor. Though one should say new 4th, as he has taken the place of our dearly departed Charlotte Linlin.

And if that was not enough for the Ambitious youth, he struck gold with his next part. Speaking too the second in command turned Captain of the newly dubbed 'Sweet Pirates' Charlotte Katakuri, the Emperors Fleet agreed to sail under his flag in return for his protection with their dearly departed mother no more.

The newly managed Germa 66 wanting a piece of that sweet pie as well it seems, as not half a day later, 'Poison Pink' Vinsmoke Reiju became one of his new subordinates, not unlike the original plans for Big Mom had regarding the Kingdom.

(Though details are unknown, one could see a certain brand of lipstick belonging to the Queen firlmly engrossed all over Silvers dear Cook Gu's face after agreements were settled...)

Getting a word from the newly Crowned Emperor, he had this too say to all our lovely readers.

"Feel free to come after my crown if you wish, if you win, you can have all I own. If you lose, I'll make sure your skeleton hangs somewhere nice in front of everyone. Just make sure your actually strong enough to beat me by youself if you think banding together will make a difference, weenie's"

With that concluded, 'Silver Scream' Cavalier will certainly bring an interesting era upon us, may we all do our best to stay off his bad side.
>>
>meanwhile, crocodile finds a news paper, and his day is ruined. "Oi, Linlin! Is this some kind of bad joke. I met that kid in his floating shanty town, and he didnt have enough brains to tie his shoes! How the hell does a brat like that break an emperor?"
>>
>>5443918
>A moment later her spirit, the last thing she managed to preserve out of her being with the awakened power of her fruit was gone. Were there any witnesses or indeed, any form of life remaining on the island and were they a safe enough distance away they could've seen shadows move within the fog that they couldn't quite describe, and hear an old woman dying a death most foul.

The fuck was this about? Should we be concerned some spooky bullshit is protecting/hanging around Silver?
>>
>>5444273
Wasn't Brooks at the wedding our best Skely boy?
>>
>>5444279
I didn't realize Luffy was invested enough to keep an eye on the fight after nabbing Sanji. He certainly left the battle quickly enough.
>>
So no 5th Emperor Luffy, Nami doesn't get Zeus, and Sanji gets to see his shithead dad killed.

Also, probs no awakend Observation for Luffy
>>
>>5444300
It sounds like he still fought Kata.
>>
>>5444311
Yeah, but with everyone else, and the fight likely broke off while everyone was evacuating
>>
>>5444136
>>5444144
It all depends on how much pull Poison Pink has in their outfit and given that the brothers seem to be weaker than her, I'd say we've got good odds of bagging Germa 66 as well.
>>
>>5444362
Also, they talked about WG protection for bringing in our head, a Yonko's protection does the same thing. And not like we ask for much from them
>>
>>5444136
>>5444362
I'm pretty certain the brothers react fairly well to Silver's notion of "Capacity for violence as a leadership criteria", Pink might be a little more difficult but we seem to be getting along pretty well and the Big Moms arn't the only ones who've had their reputation thrown into the gutter and left leaderless.
Sanji tho. Sanji. Do we really want to have one of Goofy's goofs as an honourary Silver?
>>
>>5444631
Hmm, well 3/4 of the Royal family don't consider him family, and we could have Gu marry Reiju to seal it instead of using Sanji.

Also, we can get the Tech and just give them 3 simple rules to follow.

1. Don't enslave people

2. Don't Attack out allies or territory, which goes without saying. And probably other Yonko but who cares.

3. Do us a favour or so every year, prove they helping out.

And Goofy can kiss our ass, we win, he barely won.

So think we should do some more training now? Finish getting swole with Katakuri?
>>
>>5444669
See that first one is going to be difficult to define.
Because Germa is built on slavery, just not of 'people', "tools" as Silver has called more then one agent of the government. It's why we killed Judge, he sockpuppeted his own children. I somehow doubt we are just going to forget they keep potentially tens of thousands of "people" like that as an army. It's a curious issue, and one which could become rather interesting.

Also training? We just killed. ->Killed<- Big Mom. And you want to take weeks or months off?
My man, my brother in Christ, we declared war on Peclo and Du felt. We just declared our intention to maintain Big Moms territory. There's not gonna be time to do anything like that, so put on your best santa outfit and make tuu-tuu noises because we are going to be fire brigade'ing the hell out of everywhere for the foreseeable future.
And then maybe show up to side with Kaido cause that'd be funny as all hell. I wonder how he took the news that we managed to do Linlin in.
>>
A slight change might be needed in the schedule.
That Friday I said might turn out to be a Saturday instead
We'll see tomorrow
>>
>>5444938
The ghost of Linlin strikes again
>>
>>5444956
That bitch
>>
>>5444708
>maybe show up to side with Kaido

Not a chance in hell Silver sides with Kaido. Kaido wanted to make Wano's people his slaves and turn it into a weapons factory. Not to mention his treatment of Yamato.
>>
>>5445288
Yeah, plus he probably wants to pound Silver, and vice versa
>>
>>5445441
>>5445288
Exactly! *Silver* would want to.
Not goofy plus his crew and whatever other hangerson be brings to take down Kaido, that's cheating! And if Goofy cheats it's only fair that Kaido also gets to cheat.
By cheating I mean us.

There was no small amount of outrage on the part of the Charlottes when Katakuri shook your hand. Most of them were simply stunned but a small and very vocal minority, especially among the most senior members of the family made their grievances known. Among them are Perospero and Compote, the eldest son and daughter, but even Katakuris own twins are quite displeased as well. They are backed up by Cracker, the Sweet Commander Luffy beat up and easily the strongest person in opposition to the deal. It needs to be said however that they are not at all unified as each of them is trying to assert themselves as the main representative based on different factors like seniority or strength. It may not be a stretch to say that you being an enemy is not even their main concern but the fact that they won't be able to take Mamas position is, something they were all probably looking forward to for quite some time.

But there are also a few of them who, not quite as loudly, stand by Katakuris decision citing that Katakuri always knows what's best course of action to take at any situation and that it was agreed many times over the years that he would be the one to succeed Mama should anything happen to her. Brulé stands by him no matter what happens but surprisingly Smoothie, another Sweet Commander and Mont-d'Or the chief strategist among them are also backing him up.

The rest of them don't as much form or join a group but rather they just start arguing among each other until Katakuri has had enough. He pulls out his trusty trident and slams its shaft into he ground.
"QUIET!"
A wave of conquerors haki washes over them and they fall silent.
"If you don't like my decision then you're free to go. Nobody is forcing you to comply. But know that I made my decision because I see it as the best way to keep us safe. And if you disagree I suggest you take a good look at the Whitebeards and what happened to them when their father was gone."
As silence falls on the area he turns his attention back to you.
"If it's alright with you then I'd like to discuss the terms of our alliance."

"Okay."

He then constructs a small temple of mochi with his devil fruit power so you can get some privacy. After you both enter and the gate closes behind you Katakuri creates two mochi bag chairs for you to sit on and he unceremoniously falls into one of them.
"Sigh. What a pain..."

You hop into your own right next to him and give him a good long look.
"You okay?"

"Well a part of me makes me want to scoop your eye out with a spoon. But other than that and being tired I'm okay."
>>
"No I meant those."
You point at the bandages around his chest.

"Oh, that. Hmmm. Straw Hat Luffy packs a punch. Can take one like a champ too. He even managed to copy my future sight. You better watch out for him."
Katakuri removes his scarf and pinches bits of mochi out of his chair before eating it.

"He actually beat you?"

"More like he earned my respect. Like a certain other impudent little brat. Hmph. Maybe I'm just growing soft in my old age."
Katakuri chews on some more mochi as he's contemplating things.
"I still can't believe you actually did it. She's really gone. My mother, she's-"

"Sorry."

He shakes his head.
"Don't be. She was my mother. And now I have this hollow feeling in my chest. But... she had to go. A couple days ago she had another one of her hunger pangs. My brother Mozart tried to appeal to her through words. She ripped out most of his lifespan. We tried to scoop up as much of his soul as we could and put it back in. But I've seen bricks with faces where he fell. He probably lost years of his lifespan. She did that to her own son! She was a threat to everyone. I just hope that wherever she is now at least she won't have to feel that dreadful hunger anymore."
He looks down at the pristine white floor, lost in thought.
"But anyway, congratulations little brother."
He puts out his fist and you gently tap it.
"So. What now?"

"What do you mean?"

"I was only half kidding when I said we'd discuss our terms in here. You are, or will be an Emperor. And I just swore that I'd be your subordinate. We've been in this business long enough to know there is no such thing as charity. So long as you keep your word we'll hold up our end of the bargain. Only question is what do you want?"

>The same thing I expect from all my islands. Do what you want. You're free.

>You pay me. Simple, easy, reminds everyone who's in charge.

No slavery, no attacking our other Islands, the obvious stuff

I don't think we have a "no attacking other islands" rule, unless you're talking like other islands under us
>>
>>5446223
Yes
>>
>>5446209
This also has my support.
>>
>>5446224
Pretty sure thats what 'our islands' means
>>
>>5446231
Yeah when i read it missed the "our" so thought he said "no attacking other islands"
>>
>>5446233
Though knowing Katakuri, he will probably avoid attacking Islands for the sake of it.
>>
>>5446209
Second.
>>
>>5446235
Well they may have to actually start plundering other islands for resources, atleast in the short term, since i imagine pretty much all of totto land probably ran on homie labour, so until things can be sorted and actual ppl can start running industries, the big mom pirates will probably need to start classic plundering to feed all of totto land, or cut some islands off to mitigate some demand, though tbf with big mom not around anymore alot of the citizens of totto land will probably be dipping anyway, reaslly katakuris got alot of work ahead of him in just the logistics department
>>
Alright
>>5446209
This one won by a landslide

>writing
>>
>>5446239
Man if only we had declared war on some kind of gargantuan smuggling organization which not only have all kinds of supplies but could redirect them towards Totto land.
Also where would these people go? The main reason for wanting to leave (Big Mom) is gone and the main reason for staying (safety and a general lack of taxation) remains.
>>
>>5446251
Presumably wherever they originally came from, its not hard to imagine that alot of citizens of totto land probably came hearing it was some kind of paradise and once they moved in getting told "you are no longer allowed to leave" or hell i wouldn't be surprised if a handful of citizens were ppl who accidently ended up in totto land and then were forced to stay, like alot of citizens of totto land probably have families out there, like totto land in the grand scheme of things is still a fairly new country, so kids who are actually born in it are probably only around like 20-25ish at oldest, hasn't really had time to cement itself as a thing yet
>>
Hmm, I wonder, have the Charlotte family every considered selling their produce?

Like sell Mochi, Cream, Biscuits and all the stuff they can produce with their powers instead of just feeding Big Moms gullet?
>>
>>5446259
Well they couldn't before
Everything went into feeding her or building her empire out of foodstuff
There simply was NO surlplus to sell
>>
>>5446261
Well, now they have an easy method of profit they can abuse too get rich.
>>
>>5446259
I think the biggest thing that is clear, is that katakuris got a big task on his hand pretty much rebuilding totto land from the ground up in nearly all aspects, from ideology to security to trade pretty much everything needs to either be rebuilt from the ground up or otherwise atleast adjusted, hopefully some of the kids might have actually been planning for something like this though, incase mama ever died and totto land needed to adapt to be able to survive without her
>>
"As an Emperor? The same thing I expect from all my islands. Do what you want. You're free. But if you do slavery or attack my other islands things will get difficult."

"Thankfully homies are not a thing anymore. So that shouldn't be a problem."

"But as a brother I hope I can count on you. Because you can count on me."

Katakuri smiles at you.
"That's probably the fairest thing I've heard coming from my family. Yeah. When the time comes I'll have your back. Count on it!"

"Kekeke! In that case I might send some people from Outer Heaven to help tidy the place up after I wrecked it!"

"Just who do you think we are? Each and every one of us past the age of eighteen are master artisans. Crafting things out of candy is what we do! And without homies to speed things up I think the cultivation of Wholecake Island will be a good family project to bond over with. But once we're done with that you can bet that the Big Mo- no, the Sweet Tooth Pirates will make a big comeback!"

"Kekeke!"

With things settled so nicely you clean yourselves up and leave Katakuris little mochi temple.
"Listen all of you! After discussing things with... Captain Silver we agreed that as long as we follow his rules he'll respect our sovereignty. That means no slavery and no attacking of fellow "affiliated islands". Is that about correct Silver?"

"Yeap! Also, I want an exact number of how many islands you guys have and Spider will make a flag for each of them. My jolly roger will fly next to yours."

"I'll compile a list for you."
Katakuri then looks at his siblings.
"I know this is all so sudden and I'm sorry. But this is all necessary. Mama is gone and we must never forget that. So after we all... digest what happened we shall focus on giving Mama a proper funeral fit for an Emperor. Then we may look into the future, ours and Tot Lands. I can't promise it'll be easy. And I won't force your hands. But I promise I'll protect all of you. And together we may finally build something great. So what do you say?"

After a slightly confused and almost half-hearted cheer you left the Charlottes behind. Even as you left you felt their jeer but none of them had the mental fortitude to hit you in the back. How could they stand up to an Emperor?
>>
So, where is Morgans in all of this?
>>
did all the homie souls return to their original possessors like with moria and the shadows, or are those residents just permantly dead sooner
>>
Ya know i wonder if pedros gonna join the straw hats here, since in canon he never expected to survive WCI but b4 he lost almost all his lifespan his original pirates crews goal was to find all the red poneglyphs IIRC, so he genuinely might join luffy or atleast reform the nox pirates and spend whatever little life he has left trying to fulfill his old dream
>>
>>5446289
Wonder if he got his lifespan back
>>
>>5446285
I'd probably say they return to their owners since if they didn't those soul masses would just roll around aimlessly until they dissipated
>>
>>5446290
up to spook really, canon never gave any indication either way what happened to the lifespan if the homie was destroyed, personally i'd probably say not though, btw what the hell are we gonna do about bege? like he did betray and try to assassinate and even though we ACTUALLY assassinated big mom i could see silver viewing beges attempted as unjustified since he only really wanted to do it for the lols and therefore is now on the kill list, but bege is also the husband of chiffon, so he's technically family, like only thing i can see silver doing if he runs into him again is beating the shit out of him and then threatening him to never even think about sailing into any of his turf

"You sure you guys don't wanna join us? The way you merge with Silvers wifey sure is something! We could use someone like you!"
Marcella tries to coerce the rest of the Decuplets into joining you at the shore.

"Naw! After hearing Big Bro Katakuris speech we decided to stick with them! Someone has to keep our crusty elder siblings in check after all! But thanks for the offer. If we get too many stabby looks we might follow up on it. But for now we'll try to help them rebuild. That sounds like fun."
Newichi chuckles.

"But we'll definitely visit sometime! And we can have all sorts of fun!"
Fuyumeg gives you a wink.

"THAT WAS A ONE TIME THING YOU SKANKS AND I'LL KILL YOU IF YOU TOUCH HIM!"

"Nutmeg's hogging all the fun! No fair!"

"Kekeke! Well you guys know where to find my place. And now Mama can no longer tell you that you can't go anywhere. Anyway, Tiny!"

"Yes cap'n?"

"You got the stone?"

"Got the blood thing right here!"

"Good. Then we can take it home with us. Jaws! Set sails to Outer Heaven. I wanna rest."

"Aye aye!"

Once everyone is on board the Dauntless leaves the rocky shores of Wholecake Island and slowly but surely heads out of Tot Land as a whole. Once the coast is clear and it looks like the crew got everything under control you withdraw to your cabin and sink into the warm, soft embrace of your bed. With every last one of your nerves screaming at you that there is PAIN to be felt you want nothing more than to sleep for like a year. But there is one more task to do before that. Taking out a den-den mushi you make a call. It takes a while for the recipient to pick up and when they do you are greeted to panting that's somehow heavier than yours.

"Ooooh. Aaaah. J-Just give me a moment. AAAAAAAAAAAAH! Oof. S-Silver? Is that you? Or did I pass out and now I'm dreaming?"

"It's me Morgans. How are you? You sound like you're in pain."

"Pain? Nonononono. No my boy. I haven't felt this ALIVE since the day the Pirate King died! If I just think about it I- I- AAAAAAAH! Oh god! This. Is. The. BIGGEST NEWS! I can already see the headlines! END OF AN ERA! A NEW EMPEROR IS BORN! Silver I'm sending our old friend Arthur over to get some fresh new pictures of you and your crew! Because I'm smelling new bounties! And rest assured I won't let those government pigdogs ruin the biggest scoop of the century!"

"Uh-huh. Listen I need to ask a favor from you."

"Anything! Name it! If... I can get an interview from you guys!"

"Sure. Listen you're in contact with the other Emperors right?"

"Yes?"

>Can you connect me to all of them? I got an announcement to make

>>Also, tell Du Felt, Stussie and Peclo their days are numbered.
>>> I also wanna place some bounties of my own
>>
Do we have the money to be placing bounties on ppl? like i might just be being retarded here and blanking on somethings but besides shit steal occasionly we don't exactly have a steady income, like we don't tax any of our territories that i remember we pretty much just shove a flag in places and say "yup its ours now" though i suppose it depends on how many ppl we'd be putting bounties on and what we're paying out for them, like i know we have some money but imagine its like a billion berries altogether at most
>>
>>5446308
I mean, we have looted before, plus Outer Heaven cost shitloads to make, so it likely has a profit too it.

I personally think we can either take a loan or have shitloads to go off, and its probs like Buggy and his Cross Guild. You don't need the all the money too send it, since it will take a while to bring down those who hold bounties.
>>
>>5446309
I mean did outer heaven cost anything to make really? i might be misremembering but isn't outer heaven literally just made from abandoned and broken ships like in shipwreck city from pirates of the carribean, with all the work to make it actually function done by tiny, and then pretty much ppl just came and started setting up shit on it with our permission, and as said i don't think we do tax atleast from what i remember, as for cross guild they 100% got the money to pay out the bounties, like buggy ran a successful highly acclaimed mercenary company for 2 years plus whatever crocodile brought in aswell, with even maybe mihawk adding to the pot aswell if warlords were allowed to turn in pirate bounties, don't think they would though, but yeah buggy and crocodile 100% got the capital to actually put out bounties
>>
>>5446305
>Can you connect me too all of them? I've got an annoncement to make.
>>Also, tell Du Felt, Stussie and Peclo their days are numbered.
>>> I also wanna place some bounties of my own
though even with all that said, im down for starting our own bounty sysem so disregard my first vote
>>
Imagine Crocodiles face when we take his idea and make it our ow.

The rage...
>>
>>5446320
I mean i wouldn't be against it being a joint venture with crocodile, since as said i don't think we have the capital to place more than a handful of bounties, so either us approaching crocodile or him approaching us with the system that cross guild impliments in canon is 100% something i could see happening
>>
>>5446321
Lol, would we get Mihawk and Buggy in our Crew? That would be the strongest team
>>
>>5446323
Maybe, could also just replace mihawk in the trio potentially though, since his main contribtuion to the guild though is just his sheer rep and clout though, having the worlds strongest swordsman adds alot of weight to the orginazation, something that an already established emperor would also do, so it depends on whether mihawk asked to join or if crocodile sought him out specifically for that reason
>>
>>5446326
Hmm, I wonder if any of the old Whitebeard Pirates will come to us, either for revenge or safety.

I actually wanna fight Weevil, since he's such a douche
>>
Hmmmm
Tough chcoice
I'd say that these choices are mutual
So... I'm gonna say that the bounty posters are unnecessary if you'll call them up personally
>writing
>>
>>5446329
Oh, so we announcing the bounties? Cool

Crocodile will defo approach us for Cross-Guild, especially since his bio in the character sheet shows he thinks we are somewhat dependable.

(Those things should probs get an update now that so much Big News has happened)

"Can you connect my call to all of them?"

"Oh you want to announce your reign? Right away oh New Emperor!"

It takes him a little while but Morgans does manage to establish a connection to all of the underworld emperors which is fun considering Du Felt, Peclo and Stussy who were also on the island joined as well.
"Morgans! You know that this channel is for emergencies only! We got bigger things to worry about now than whatever lunacy you got on your mind!"

"Oh you are correct in that my dear Peclo! You are VERY correct! My esteemed colleagues! Allow me to announce none other than the newest Emperor of the Seas! Cavalier Silver! The one who killed Charlotte Linlin in one on one combat!"

"Hey."
You hear a lot of distortion coming from pretty much all of the participants of the group call but two of the snails peak out in a spectacular fashion. The rest who don't fear for their lives are calling Morgans various curses.
"It's me. Silver. And I wanted to call you to make an announcement. I'm pretty sure I did business with most of you at some point at Outer Heaven. But things will be different now. In my adventures at sea I learned a few things. Things that I did not like. Now I said this before but I want everyone to know this. Peclo, Du Felt, Stussy. You're dead. I'm coming for you. And there is nothing you can do about it. The only reason you're still alive is because I got a long list with everything on it being more important than you. But once I've dealt with all the important stuff I'll make some time for you. I suggest you use that time to make peace with yourselves. The rest of you I am willing to be friends with. But if I learn you do anything I don't like I'm coming for you next. Got it?"
Their outrage bursts out of the den-den mushi. Pretty much all of them ask "Who do you think you are" and "How dare you" in unison.
"I am an Emperor of the Sea now. You all are just emperors of the underworld. My sea will flood whatever holes you call home and crush you. I suggest you remember that. I'll see you later. Silver out."

You then smash down the transponder snail and finally pull the blanket over your tired body and get some much needed sleep.
>>
>>5446355
FUCK I want an edit of that image with Silver's face on it where Big Mama's was.
>>
So, I imagine the plot will be shaked up now that the Underworld is gonna get destroyed, I imagine a lot of allies will be leaving Stussie, Du Field and Peclo and try too cosy up too us in fear of retribution.

Add in the WG will likely abandon Stussie since she is more of a liability that risks our wrath. And we have a recipe for disaster
>>
Hmm, think we will get anymore interludes?
>>
>>5446385
kaidos gonna destroy oni island in drunken greif, before flying off directly to either us or the island to make a toast to linlin.
>>
You're uncertain about the amount of time that passed while you were secluded in your room beset by near constant nightmares and tormented by an aching body that is denied the sweet release of death. All that you know is that the waters are very different when you finally managed to gather the strength to leave the bed, with not a hint of the sweet sugary aroma of Tot Lands waves.

"Look who's finally awake. Good morning Silver!"

"Morning Spider."

"Morning shithead. You just slept through what might be the last few naval combats we'll have."

"Huh? Wuh?"

Marcella tosses you a rolled up newspaper.
"It's spreading fast. Morgans made sure the entire world was made aware of it overnight. The Marines also acted surprisingly quickly. We still got the old photos but Big Bird said we'll be getting new ones soon. Check it out."

"Uuuuh."
4.239.000.000.
"Is that a lot?"

"Indeed. It's a little bigger than what Big Moms was."

"Thanks Angel. I don't think I can deal with numbers right now-"
You're about to toss the paper into the sea when you see a picture on the third page right after it's done talking about your accomplishments.
"Fishy? What's a Levely?"

"The Levely is the council the member nations of the World Government hold every four years."
Murray answers your question.
"The paper talks about whether the Neptune Family will show up since they are also under your protection."

"Hmmm. Fishy. I wonder how she's doing."
You're a bit concerned of course. About what those fools at the World Government will do to her. And if they do anything then that means you won't be able to get your rest in before two bloody wars, which would make you quite cranky indeed.
"Anyway where are we? How long until we get back to home?"

"A few more days according to Marci. You can still rest a bit more. We'll wake you up when we arrive."

"Thanks Toxin."

"No problem. In the meantime you might want to figure out what to do when we get there."

"Hmmm? What do you mean?"

"Nothing. I just assume we'll be quite busy for a while now. Might want to decide what to do first."

You do think about it for a while and yeah, there is probably a lot of stuff that you'd need to do now with all that Emperor business. But what's the point of rising in rank if it means you can't do what you want? And work is just about the last thing you want to do now. Instead it's fun that you're interested in. And an idea crosses your mind about how you can do just that. You made a promise not too long ago. You did promise Sandersonia a marriage. Come to think of it you were also promised that which then turned into an assassination. So this could be like hitting two birds with one stone.
"Yeah. I think that's good!"

With that decided you get back to your little R&R session until you get back to Outer Heaven. The last couple of days of travel pass by uneventfully, save for a few natural disasters on the way. Which is strange because the area around your dominion is not one that anyone would call quiet. But it seems like the news of the change did dampen things a bit. Upon seeing Outer Heaven on the horizon you noted that the usual bustling of the city was gone. Pirates were not fighting for the right of a parking space, nor were they blowing each other up just outside your door for matters of money, prestige or honor. If you had to pick one word to describe the situation it'd be "tense" or "nervous".

"Take us in Jaws. Let's not keep them waiting any longer."

Docking was also not as cheerful as before. The workers did their jobs with their breaths held and there was no fanfare to announce your arrival. Even the music which normally blared out of the halls felt much more tame and restrained, which turned to pure silence once you actually set foot in the great hall. There was always a certain reverence coming from the guests of the pirate city. Not anymore. Now it's just fearful awe.

As you ascend to your elevated seat at the center of the place you notice how nobody dared to return to their usual behavior. Not even Diaz and Pascia, who clearly ran over once they heard you arrived, dare to talk to you. They are all too afraid of you.
"Sigh. Is this really what we're gonna do now? HEY!"
You put your leg on the table as loudly as possible.
"What the hell happened here?! I'm gone for a little while and you all stop having fun?! SHAME ON YOU! Looks like I have to teach you guys some manners again... FIRST ROUND IS ON THE HOUSE FOR EVERYONE!"

That got a reaction out of them. Though they are still more reserved than you'd like. There is one person however who is not at all bothered by the change.

"SILVER!"
Sandersonia hurries over to greet you and only stops a moment before she'd tackle you to the ground.
"I read what happened and I... A-Ahem. Congratulations on your conquest Emperor. The Kuja recognize your strength."

"Thanks! But you don't have to keep doing that."

"Nonsense! I am their representative as your protectorate! B-But if you say so. I'm so happy! Because I knew you could do it! You're the best after all!"

"Heh."
Nutmeg chuckles.
"Someone should warn that girl that she should stop gushing because Silver can't swim! Seriously if I ever act like that just kill me-"
BONK
"OW! WHAT THE HELL BILLY?!"

"B-but you said it-"

"Kekeke! Thanks Snakey! But I didn't really do it. She went crazy during the fight. I'm not sure I could've done it if she didn't."

"Foolishness! How many others could've done the same? None! So you should be proud of your achievement! Emperor!"
She says the word with so much glee that she forgets about her own demeanor and just smiles without restraint

"You know what? You're right. And I think I know just the way to celebrate that."
You look up at her and extend your hand.
"Marry me!"

"W-Wuh?"

And that is it for today.
However I got something else up my sleeve as well. Though it does not require any voting on your part.
One moment

A couple days after the wedding of Wholecake Island, which most of the world was aware of as one of the events that will usher in a new age, news began to spread quickly. The first islanders who heard what happened were naturally the ones under Big Moms direct control and their denizens did not dare to gossip about it, not even in hushed whispers. But like a wildfire it spread outward through the channels of both the underworld and that of the government.

"IMPORTANT! IMPORTANT!"
A marine shouts as he barges into the Fleet Admirals office.

"What? How dare you barge in unannounced soldier?!"

"IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO THE FLEET ADMIRAL FROM THE GOROSEI, SIR!"

"WHAT?! Those crusty old fools! Who do they think they are to send letters to me? I am the Fleet Admiral damn it! Give it here!"
Akainu ripped the piece of paper out of the hands of the delivery man and the cigar in his mouth turned into ash in an instant once he saw what was written on it. The paper spontaniously combusts in his hand as he smashes his fist into the table. Then once he's calmed down enough to not burn his office to the ground Sakazuki picked up his den-den mushi.
"CONNECT ME TO KIZARU! I DON'T CARE WHAT HE'S DOING! TELL HIM TO REPORT TO ME IMMEDIATELY!"
He smashes the receiver of the snail down.
"There is no way in hell I'm letting this go through! We'll bring that filth to justice and eradicate Big Moms empire in one fell swoop!"


Meanwhile on the other end of the New World.
"Y-You bitch! You won't get away with this! Do you know who I work for? This island belongs to-"

"Yeah yeah yeah. You work for Red Hair. Blah blah blah. Now quit squirming 'cuz you're working for me now. HEAVE!"
Eliza pulls on the rope she's been holding and ties it down.
"And you make one fine windchime."

"Erm c-captain?"

"What is it mutts? Red Hair is already here? You'd think if he cared so much about this place he would've left actual guards here and not these loosers. Oh well. Time for a bloodbath!"

"N-No. That's not it. Look! Todays newspaper arrived!"

"Wha- Why are you bothering me with this? Can't you see I'm busy?! And besides you know I don't read!"

"B-But you said we should tell you if we see him."

"HIM? GIVE IT HERE!"
She snatches the paper out of her underlings hand like a starving dog snatches an unobserved slice of meat. Only barely can she restrain her giggling and she rubs the paper into her cheeks.
"He did it! He actually did it!"
She quickly crumples up the paper but noticably doesn't throw it away and she looks at the people lined up and on their knees in front of her.
"Alright you bastards! Looks like it's your lucky day. Some urgent business just came up that I simply must do. So uh... thank your lucky stars you aren't that guy."

So thought of something

Going by Akainu's thoughts, it's likel that they are bringing the Seraphim or all 3 Admirals on is.

What would Silver think of the Seraphim? Since they are basically child soldiers?

Also, since the Warlord system will be disbanding, won't that mean Hancock will have to accept our protection?
>>
>>5446523
Straw hat reactions! Straw hat POV during the fight!
>>
>>5446533
I thought the warlords wouldn't be disbanding since silver's attack on the holy land made people think they were necessary.
>>
>>5446533
Probably would think the same of them as the Germa, just souless living weapons.
The Shichibukai won't be disbanding this time, and Hancock already has our protection.
>>
>>5446541
Hmm, would he kill them or try and teach them to be free?
>>
>>5446568
Theres's no saving them so the best next thing would be killing them or maybe have them under his control then leave them in a corner or something. But maybe they'll show some development in future chapters, who knows?

So what is our 'official Yonko business' supposed to be btw?
>>
>>5450328
Look tough and beat up any challenges that come to take your place.
>>
>>5450328
I imagine its just cementing our power base, so you know staying at outer heaven awhile probably some important figures in the new world will come by just to make their faces known to us so we don't attack them, ppl who had deals with big mom will probably come by and see if we'd be up for taking over that partnership, some island leaders coming by to ask for protection, and then us just killing ppl who will think since we're new and young they might be able to take us out and become yonko themselves, plus defend outer heaven incase the marines decide to try and nip this in the bud early by rolling up and trying to kill us
>>
>>5450396
Hmmm, think Green Bull will be coming for us? Since he's that idiot who serves the CD like a dog?

Ad was confident in beating Luffy after the Kaido fight
>>
>>5450400
Maybe? i could also see akainu organizing a full scale assault on outer heaven aswell though, especially if we go invade the reverie like we've been throwing out there, since then the CS and world goverment would back a full assault plan then where as if we don't they might hold him back, hell akainu might lead it personally, only other response i could see is imu just completely wiping us and outer heaven off the map aswell though
>>
>>5450404
Isn't Outer Heaven under the Ocean? Not sure Imu's Anus could reach us all the way down there
>>
>>5450406
I don't think so? im pretty sure its pretty much like that place in Pirates of the carribean where an island thats just made up of abandoned ships, except bigger, like if it is underwater i completely missed that
>>
>>5450406
No, its a floating fortress/city/pubcrawl not to far from the Red Line on the new world side, by the opening from Fishman Island if memory serves.

The marines have already attacked it. Multiple times.
>>
Hey, did we ever claim that prison island we found rat bro on? If so, might I suggest we rename it Shadow Moses? I feel like we could use it as a "secondary" Outer Heaven if needed.
>>
>>5450413
They not only attacked it, they attacked it so much that almost a quarter of the place is built by the wood of their wrecked ships.

Also their marines spend almost as much money on drugs and whores as the pirates. Turns out good puss is good puss.
>>
>>5450414
We did. By the time we left there were people from Outer Heaven on the way there to help the prisoners, deliver food and see about getting them settled and all that good shit.

That's a weird name tho, where'd it come from?
>>
>>5450414
I mean i think we might have said something along the lines of "we own the island now" or atleast our crew did as they dragged our half dead body out of there but can't imagine its really did anything, like we pretty much just killed the ppl in charge and let the prisoners run free, i imagine the islands pretty much devolved into a free for all as every prisoner tries to take control of it, unless im misremembering how that arc ended but im pretty sure we just got dragged out of there by our crew after clown attempted to murder us
>>
>>5450418
"Ahem. Is this thing on? H-Hello? Ah there we go! Congratulations prisoners! You've been freed. You can put down your tools and come to where you usually send what you mine. We got a surprise for you."
After about an hour or so most of the islands former prisoners have arrived and crowded up where you told them to.
"Well we got some good news for all of you! Whatever you did doesn't matte anymore! You can do whatever you want! Now there is a little problem. We can't actually get you off this island yet. But I already called a few friends who are gonna come and renovate this place a bit. If you want they can take you somewhere safe where you can find a way home on your own. Or if you don't wanna you can stay here and be a part of what we're cooking! But for now-"
You snap your finger and the whole island hears it, after which your crewmembers who were all positioned at one of the rings smash through the great wall, creating a straight line connecting each of the layers together.
"It's time to celebrate!"

We pretty much secured it, and the two little starving kiddies told us they wanted to be pirates when they grow up. Very heartwarming.
>>
>>5450422
Will 2 and Will 3
>>
>>5450422
Ah k then, hopefully whoever we sent had some muscle since 100% atleast some of the prisoners would try to take over the island
>>
Anything else we should do besides cementing our place as Yonko?

We have a few weeks till the Wano Arc comes and goes. Then Kaido goes down

Marry Sandersonia and Fishy.
Knock them up like we knocked up Nutmeg. Raise our kid(Shelly) while Luffy and his crew do stupid shit.
Maybe visit Kaido and fuck around for awhile after we tell him of our impeding fatherhood and ask for advice since he's the only other person we know that has a kid.
Try to find some way to fuck with Luffy before/during his wano fuckabout.
Maybe conquer a few more islands?
>>
>>5450429
Hmm, think BB will finally come for that visit he owes us?

Maybe we could meet the remaining Warlords, knock em down a peg.

>>5450429
call our boi blackbeard over for the bachelor party lol

>>5450429
>>5450428
taking over/causing a coup in Peclo and Du Feld's organizations, laugh at the rest of the worst generation, fuck with the gubernment via unaliving Stussy and then once someone figures out how hilariously, obscenely, wealthy we're gonna be turn down a marriage proposal from nami.
Ehm, I guess we could start literally dumping actual shiploads of gold on top of Dragons rebellion to try and spice things up around the world?
Or we could try hiring all of the marines (yes, all of them) so they can stop being boring weenies and do cool pirate shit instead!
Or if we really wanted to put our current and future fortune to work: put out obscene bounties on world nobles, just to rub it in everyones face that we can do that.
>>
>>5450509
Doesn't Stussy also have her own organisation?
>>
>>5450518
Yea, prostitution I do believe.
>>
>>5450525
I was thinking Drugs since they give 'pleasure' as well
>>
>>5450417
Shadow Moses also happens to be a place in the Metal Gear universe in Alaska(?); for the most part, it's used as a dumping grounds for nukes and radioactive materials, and happens to be the site where Metal Gear Rex was built. Naturally, terrorists, led by Liquid Snake, took it over, and Liquid considered making it more or less Outer Heaven 2.0. Whether that was from an actual strategic move or from trying to say "Fuck you dad, I have an Outer Heaven too!" is up for debate .

I chose the name Shadow Moses because the DARPA chief described it as "a desolate hellhole" or something to that effect, and seeing how that prison was a hellhole to, I figured it fit...minus the abundant snow and nuclear materials locked away.
>>
>>5450509
I coulda sworn we already had 30 "gold" a head for world nobles at some point.

Might be a anon floated the idea and it never became "official" though.

Sandersonia can feel blood rushing from her chest all the way to the top of her head, which causes her to turn redder than a ripe tomato and steam to blow from her ears before she collapses. Everyone looks at the swirly eyed giantess for a good while before Pascia awkwardly steps forth.

"So erm does that mean we should start planning a wedding captain?"

"Nah. I think I had enough of big parties for a while now. It's gonna be something small and private. Probably better for her too. But do take her somewhere safe. She's gonna catch a cold lying on the ground in her undies like that."

"A-As you wish."

As the big snake is carried away on a stretcher you take your rightful place at Outer Heavens seat of power and get to work. You got a lot of lazing around to catch up on. But as you down one bottle of rum after another you do notice that things are a bit different around here. You take note of two distinct "factions" within the chaotic crowd, those whose faces ring a bell and those whose don't. The regulars of the place who know how things go around here are a bit on edge. Duels, brawls and outright murder all still happen and quite frequently as per usual. But anytime someone thinks they've taken things a bit far like for example by damaging someones private property hostilities quickly stop and all participants look at you with abated breaths until they sigh with relief after they realize they are still in the clear. The other group however is a bit different.

It was never unusual for a long line of procession to be in front of your little pirate throne. Someone always wants something. Either they have grievances which they hope you'll solve, they have schemes which they wish for you to participate in or they bear gifts to you. Admittedly the last one was a bit rarer than the rest since everyone learned after a while that buttering you up is as futile as trying to empty the sea with a spoon. No matter how extravagant a gift it will not buy them any favors, it won't absolve any crimes and it won't be viewed as anything other than a tribute that rightfully belonged to you anyway. But now there is an endlessly twisting and turning line of people, all of whom wish to get in your good grace.

"What the hell is going on here?"
You scratch your head as another hapless buffoon shows you a treasure chest full of gold.

"Haven't you been paying attention?"

"How dare you suggest that I did Bullseye?! You know full well that I refuse to hear weenies talk! I just take their gold and kick them away!"

"Sigh. They want to buy entry."

"Entry?"
You look around.
"But they are already inside..."

"No, not like that. They want to join us."

"I don't want weenies on my ship."

"NO! They. Want. To. Join. Your. Fleet!"

"Oooooooh! I see."

>"HEY! BUTTHOLES! I DON'T WANT OR NEED YOUR HELP! FUDGE OFF!"
>"That's not a bad idea actually. Yeah having a fleet sounds right and propa' Emeprory!"

>building an army
>culling the weak
yeap yeap, it checks out

>writing

now let's see how it goes
3d10+5 best of 4
no dc, higher means a higher percentage of people will survive
>>
Rolled 4, 5, 1 + 5 = 15 (3d10 + 5)

>>5451277
I would say keep all them as cannon fodder but anons are smarter than I
>>
>>5451279
now you see that'd be the smart thing to do, like how those navy guys over are doing
but they aren't concerned about a lil' thing called style
these people will not just be a bunch of goons under your command, they'll go around with your jolly roger and basically rep you
so if they are weenies that means you're a weenie
>>
Rolled 5, 8, 3 + 5 = 21 (3d10 + 5)

>>5451277
>>
Rolled 10, 3, 1 + 5 = 19 (3d10 + 5)

>>5451277
A fleet in service to God and silver.
>>
>>5451281
we do not support weenie-enabling. if they wanna talk the talk, they better have the guts to walk the walk. a weenie training program operated by one branch of our fleet might be good tho. Silver's school for weenie-breaking. got a lot of people who misunderstood what kind of education they'd receive, but results have been mostly positive
>>
Rolled 3, 6, 2 + 5 = 16 (3d10 + 5)

>>
21/35 not too bad, sorry it wasn't better though
>>
>>5451283
Not excellent, not terrible, plain good
>>
Rolled 5, 3, 10 + 5 = 23 (3d10 + 5)

>>5451277
Well let's see if these boys are worth anything.
>>
>>5451290
not our fault a bunch of weenies thought they could schmooze on us.
>>
Rolled 8, 3, 5 + 5 = 21 (3d10 + 5)

>>5451277
Damn, im late. Hope this roll isn't good.
>>
>>5451292
Fuck

So we killing em or just kicking em out if they fail?
>>
>>5451290
A third of the fleet dying is fine, silver loses twice that much blood every fight
>>
>>5451290
Weenies are weenies and ya cant fix stupid.

Still they might be entertaining as they die so there's at least that.
>>
>>5451295
It's a free for all so in following Silvers usual mindset we'd probably just let the winners decide what they want to do with the losers short of slavery or rape. Want to leave them broke and penniless? Fine. Want to throw them to the marines? Knock yourself out. Wanna make them walk the plank? Classic and we'll buy you a pint for the chuckles. Etc.

"Hmmmm. Not a bad idea actually! Sounds right and propa' Emperory!"
You smirk.
"How do you guys feel about a little pre-lunch workout?"
You clap your hands together and the sound washes over the great chamber, prompting everyone to pay very close attention to you.
"Everyone! Be good and clear the area. Now. The party will resume in fifteen minutes! Not you though. You who stand in line waiting to meet me!"

In a flash the bustling great hall empties, making it look more like a ghost town rather than a place of revelry where the party never ends. The eerie silence brought about the panicked evacuation of the area weighs heavily on all those who came to prostrate themselves and you see their nerves getting the better of them. One particular kid, whom you assume to be a deckhand or something similarly irrelevant in his crew, starts incoherently screaming and runs away. His seniors in the crew either follow suit or try to stop the cowards from running but it doesn't matter either way. A snap of your finger is followed by quick shower of crossbow bolts that rains down on the cowards. The weakest fell from the first volley, the strong who managed to catch or blow away the projectiles got to witness Wills special munitions next which he picked specifically for each of them after seeing their abilities in action once.

"Kekekeke! Nice job Bullseye!"

"Hold that thought. A few of them are still in the line laying low. They got the same jolly roger as those guys. One moment."
After his third volley the entire crew lays dead, their blood further staining the already not so pretty deck of Outer Heaven. Unable to determine whether to look at the fresh cadavers or the ones who made them the remaining pirates are a bit disoriented.
"There. Now they are done."

"Good. Good! Now then..."
You stand up and lean forward to look down at the people below.
"My name is Silver! Perhaps you've heard of me! And perhaps that's why you want to join me. Okay. But before we get started I have a few conditions. I don't tolerate cowards or weaklings. If you want to sail under my flag you'll be hard, you'll be tough. And you follow my rules. Here they are for our current game! You all have fifteen minutes! Those that don't run away and survive get to join! The rest, well... y'know. Good luck!"
>>
So, how much wil survive qm?
>>
>>5451325
More than one, less than fifty-six trillion.

Relax fag you'll see it in the next few posts I'm sure.
>>
>>5451328
its entirely possible there is only 1 person in the soup there that isnt a weenie. it could even be a weenie palooza
>>
For the first minute they all just stand there processing things. After that though someone throws the first punch and all hell breaks loose. All the crews turn on each other in a moments notice and blood starts flowing almost immediately. Everyone tries to stick with their own comrades but the chaotic battle royale quickly ensures that everyone but the most well organized crews get split up.

"That's a bit barbaric isn't it?"

"Not at all Spider. They chose this. I didn't say they have to kill each other. They could've stood there for fifteen minutes and all would've been welcome to join. But this is good. A bit of bloodlust is useful. Also if any of you feel like it you can go down as well and take a few out. I don't want to have unlucky guys on my team."

"And if we accidentally cripple a crew or two?"
Clown asks.

"It's not crippling. It's removing the weak links."
Angel retorts as she flies down to join the fray.

"Works for me-"
And Pepe joins her too as do a few others as well.

Once the fifteen minutes were up you let out a sharp whistle and hostilities ceased. Most were exhausted but a select few who proved to be tough enough nuts to crack stand confidently. Sadly there were those who did not quite make the cut and they took umbrage at you culling their friends and crew. Those were given a simple offer. Swallow the bitter pill or leave. If they didn't take either they were also killed. The rest however waited with abated breath for your speech.

"Congratulations! You guys were the ones who were strong, smart, skilled or lucky enough to last the whole time! You ALL get to be part of my fleet! That means you come when I call! Aside that you can do whatever you want. But if you touch MY islands or do slavery I'm killing ya! Now go and sign up with my crew Dexter and Ann. We'll discuss benefits later!"
Most of them seem to be satisfied with this arrangement, the rest don't show any emotion what so ever. With that settled you sit back on your comfy sofa and drink some milk.
"Phew. Emperoring sure is hard work..."

Once your marks were distributed and each of the captains who swore fealty to you met up with Spider and Rat your crewmates brought you their list.
"Aside a few lone wolves we got a total of ten crews, each with roughly seven hundred members. Bringing the grand total of your new fleet to 7142 members distributed among 70 vessels."

"Cool!"

"However despite all of them being New World pirates they are all rookies and relatively weak. It seems that the old guard was not moved by your rise to power."

"Kekeke! Who cares? They may not be strong but we only need them for decoration and big numbers to impress stupid people!"

As you laugh to yourself however someone else does so as well.
"Kuhahahaha! Well I'll be. Not only have you risen quite a bit up the ranks you also wasted no time creating a bloodbath at your own doorstep! I'm impressed."
The figure walks up and grins at you.
"It's been a while. Cavalier!"

"Chocolate."

"May I take a seat?"
Crocodile moves without waiting for an answer and situates himself next to you while his second in command Daz Bones stands in place. You call for a waitress to bring him a glass of wine.
"I like what you've done with the place. It's like every time I come back it gets a bit more depraved."

"I prefer to cal it "Fun". Now what do you want Choco boy? Don't tell me you also wanna work for me."

"Hardly. I was actually just in the neighborhood. I was planning on kidnapping a king or two once the Levely was over. But then I saw the news and just felt like I had to sit down. The shock I felt when I saw a snot nosed brat like you being called an Emperor was only matched by the joy I felt at the thought of that hag biting the dust at long last."
He takes his glass of wine and begins swirling it around.
"Though I wouldn't oppose to forming an alliance. You've proven your capability and your little stunt is already shaking the world to its core."

>"I become an emperor and suddenly everyone wants to be my friend. Funny. I refuse."

Crocodile is the kinda guy who always has an angle. He's not a limp dick weenie like that Al Capone looking wannabe but that doesnt mean he wont use us to his own benefit.

Hell that's one of the things I like about the guy. Not a hint of bullshit, just naked self interest. Nice to find an honest man in the business.

So ideas where we get the money if Cross Guild is happening?

Maybe the Sweet Tooths new product selling?

Or just taking over the Underworld
>>
I mean i don't think silver would straight up just accept an alliance here, i feel like he'd say something like "hmm if you can manage to fight me for 5 minutes i'd be down for an alliance" or something like that, like an alliance has got to be between equals so if croc can't last 5 mins atleast he's not worth it
>>
>>5451366
If he can hold his own, he an equal, if he can't, he's a subordinate.
>>
>>5451367
Yeah thats what im saying, like i think we need to give him some kind of test if he wants an alliance and not to be our subordinate
>>
>>5451368
I'd say he already proved himself back when we fought Ivankov
>>
>>5451369
Not really? like he didn't do anything super impressive then, like we're an emperor rn so if we agree to an alliance thats pretty much saying crocodiles our equal, so if we do that and then something happens to croc that hurts our image
>>
>>5451371
so checking crocs mettle b4 agreeing to an alliance seems pretty sensible IMO

>"hmm well ya see chocolate apparently im a pretty big deal now, so if you want an alliance instead of just being my subordinate i need to make sure you can stack up, so how about this, me and you fight and if you can survive 5 minutes i'll agree to an alliance, but if you lose you have to become my subordinate instead, how does that sound?"

>second

As for what he wants. He has a underground organization' and we're about to create some vacancies. 1+1 sometimes becomes 2
>>
>>5451376
That doesn't sound right, are you sure 1+1 doesn't equal ham snadwich?
>>
Hmmm, so think we will recruit ALL the Warlords?

We can get Ham sandwich, Mihawk, Booger and Chocolate from this alone.

But what about Moria or Kuma? Since Doffy's ass is in jail
>>
>>5451379
the warlords aren't getting dissolved here, so we probably won't be getting any except perhaps boa or if they somehow find out about the seraphims and take offense
>>
>>5451378
Ham? With those numbers?!
If its anything it's an egg, bacon and cheese sandwich. That's one, one and one things

>Knowingly and willingly allying with Crocodile
Man Silver must've bumped his head harder than I thought
Oh well, it'll be amusing at least

>writing
>>
>>5451387
From what I've gathered, he'll ally him but he won't trust him. Like Vito Corleone with Hyman Roth, he'll work with him but he'll never trust him.
>>
>>5451387
He bumped for big brain movement, also Crocodile can try and manipulate us, but you can't control crazy
>>
>>5451387
>Ey yo, Silver. I heard I could use you for personal gain
>But I'm gonna have enough balls to say it to your face without flinching
>We good?
>>
>>5451391
I'm pretty sure Croc is too smart to try and control Silver. If anything he just wants the chance to profit from the latest insane stunt Silver pulls out of his ass.
>>5451396
Yeah kind of like this
>>
>>5451398
Yeah but crocodile gets way more out of this alliance than us, he gets a major rep boost, and our backing if anyone tries to start shit with him, and we get pretty much nothing like the most we'll prob ask is for back up if we're in a bad situation, but if we're up against someone/ an alliance thats big enough to be a threat to us theres a good chance crocodile would just not heed the summons out of self preservation, like just do not see this ending well
>>
>>5451404
We probaby get subordinates, also he isn't stupid enough to not give us anything.

I imagine he will give us enough too keep us satisfied, but keep the lions share to himself.
>>
>>5451407
We've got subordinates of our own, we don't need crocs, and silver literally never asks anything of his allies except for back-up in a hypothetical big fight, like against kaido or blackbeard or the WG themselves, which croc would send the bare minimum to support just to say he contributed and would never take the field himself against someone who was truly a threat to him, so like on a whole this alliance gets us zilch, unless we do demand money from croc in exchange
>>
>>5451404
Are you trying to use logic and reason? That's very brave. And who needs people to fight for us? We have us to fight, if they want in on our fights they can get in line!

If he gets us into "trouble" that sounds like a good time, and a win for us! And if you bring up money, who cares. If Silver wants money he goes and cracks open a bank.
>>
>>5451408
If it's still on the table, Cross Guild is a near-perfect addition to Outer Heaven, only hindered by the fact it would certainly alienate the Marines that buy booze and hookers there, but who cares about those losers, right?
>>
>>5451410
i think play up silvers retardness way to much, like he has been shown to make logical decisions even if its his own twisted logic, but theres none of that here, like its not even as if him and crocodile are friends or anything, like how is crocodile any different to any of the other rando big wigs in the new world? like is silver gonna accept an alliance from rando 800'000 berrie bounty number 23 next?
>>
>>5451411
Yeah pretty much the only thing crocodile could bring to this partnership is money, like thats the only thing he has
>>
>>5451411
Only the important one's get bounties, so all other mooks can come and go.

They have as much right too be here as every other pirate with a bounty slapped on his/her head
>>
>>5451413
Crocodile is still a pretty strong fighter in his own right, even if he isn't top tier. And besides, even if we try to ignore it, we're going to need money if we want to move forward with ambitious projects.
>>
>>5451413
I think it's a matter of framing. This won't really be an "alliance" so much as cooperation. He works for us as an associate that does things not important enough for the crew but not so small that any scrub can do it. He won't be protected like our islands, our fleets or our crew since Silver would never accept him but he gets to ride the waves Silver makes and scavenge the scraps he leaves in his wake.
>>
>>5451417
I think at strongest crocodiles like katakuri/king level fighter, but the thing is crocodile would only ever get into a fight he has a good chance of losing if his back was against the wall, so certainly wouldn't do it at silvers request, and him taking out ppl who he can comfortably beat? like say jack or perospero, we have actual subordinates that can do that, as for the money, yeah if we ask for some that'd be good, but silvers never asked for money in the past and there wasn't a write-in to specifically ask for that in terms so don't think he's gonna be asking for any here
>>
>>5451419
I think thats the thing here, if he was gonna be our subordinate i'd be perfectly fine with that, but an alliance is an agreement between equals that both parties should be gets reasonably equal benefits from, which just straight up not the case here
>>
>>5451421
Then that's that. Chocolate has to kiss the metaphorical ring finger or he doesn't get anything. I don't think the other anons would take issue with that since no one here seems to trust him anyway.
>>
>>5451423
I mean we literally asked him "yo you gonna ask to be my subordinate?" and he said "no, but what about an alliance?" and the vote ended in us agreeing to that
>>
>>5451424
I think maybe it will be like Kidd's alliance, in that we are at the front of it, and the de facto leader.

No one tells us what to do.
>>
>>5451426
Yeah I don't think Croc wants the attention that comes with being equal with an emperor. It's probably a more business type of alliance with him wanting to use our resources to boost himself up.

"After our last meeting you still want more? Kek! Okay Sandman. You want to be on the winning side. So what kind of alliance do you want? Or what do you want to get out of me?"

He smugly takes a big puff from his cigar before smothering it just so he could light a fresh one.
"Well I'd be lying if I said I'm here because of your charming personality or your luxurious accommodations. Do you remember Moria? Large guy, pale, left even more mad than I am after trying his luck at the New World?"

"Oh him. Yeah I recall him. Why?"

"He went to Hachinosu not too long ago. Heard that one of his subordinates was on Pirate Island. Nobody has heard from him again. A former member of the Royal Shichibukai, gone. Just like that. I'm sure you heard of Blackbeard and his escapades."

"He's been fighting the Whitebeards."

"And hunting Devil Fruit users. They somehow found a way to claim your power for their own and they've been hunting prominent fruit users all over the sea. Did you know they even targeted you? Or your crew rather. They have no interest in a zoan unless it's something rare and special. No, they had their eyes on the fruit of your little doctor, that paramecia. And the glass logia that woman has. But this place serves as a good deterrent. It's filled with the most vile scum who'd swarm him like angry wasps if he disturbed their pile of filth. And if they did not stop him then the Government who's close by would as they sensed blood."

"Don't tell me you're scared. I'll have you kicked off my island if you're a weenie you know."

"Nothing such. I'm just getting to my point. Teach with decades of scheming managed to supplant that god damn old man. Meanwhile we have you here who managed to do the same with Big Mom but using brute strength to claim the throne. There is also another link between you."

"Huh?"

"The impossible. Teach did the impossible by wielding two Devil Fruits at the same time. And you by killing that monster as a snot nosed rookie. In my time when we talked about replacing the Yonko we thought it'd happen after they die of natural causes and the resulting vacuum would be seized by someone. But those two giants were toppled by the Worst Generation already."
Crocodile looks up at the ceiling, lost in thought.
"The birds are also chirping that Straw Hat declared war on Kaido. Did you know that? He removed one of Kaidos most important pawns and pissed him off."

"Flamingo."

"Yeah. I don't consider myself a gambling man. But if anyone then that kid could pull off the impossible and beat that thing. If that happens then only Red Hair will remain out of the big four. In just three years the worlds foundation has been irrecoverably shaken and I think it'll only get worse."
>>
"I still don't see the point."

"Kuhahahaha! Well think about it. What's the one thing that happened before that three years but it's also happening now and can impact the course that the world will take?"
Finally you get what he means and look up as well.
"Exactly. The Levely. Those old farts may not do much most of the time. But you gave them plenty to act on. Well, I did as well. But I imagine trying to take over a single country pales in comparison to the atrocities you and your pals commit almost daily. I swear back in my day we knew how to not draw unnecessary attention. Well whatever. Basically what I'm saying is that you've been cornering this particular rat enough for it to start biting back. Especially now when you're a nascent emperor. If I was in their position I'd also try to nip you in the bud before your little empire could take root. Plus with all new emperors come territorial disputes. I think we're about to enter a very, very bloody era. And I'd rather stand on the side that has the Yonko killing maniac."

"You're afraid."

"No. I'm opportunistic. And if I want to carve out the biggest slice of the pie I'm gonna need the biggest knife I can get."

"I see. And what do I get in return? Joker gave Kaido weapons and that earned him the position of a lapdog. You come to me talking about Alliances. You better offer me more than that Croco-boy."

His eye does a nervous twitch at your choice of vernacular. He puts out his cigar again but this time chooses not to light another.
"As a matter of fact I do have an offer. Don't think I'm coming empty handed. I have a rather large amount of capital that others owe me. I'm thinking of investing it a bit. And since you demonstrated that you're no longer just messing around I think this is a prime target. I have decades of experience ahead of you not just as a pirate but as the leader of an organization. I know every name worth knowing and I know what powers most of them wield. And you can get it. In exchange for your cooperation."

"KEKEKEKEKEKE! Alright Croco-boy! You wanna play with me? Then let's play!"
You raise your hand up high and with a loud and satisfying smack shake Crocodiles hand.
>>
Alright that should be it for today.
But I got something else in the logs.
After posting that however I'll go sleep.
And I'll see you guys sometime during the weekend. Probably Saturday.

"Hmmmmmmm. How strange. Isn't this weird Sentomaru? We got so many boys here. So many boys and girls with guns. I don't like it. Especially that new Pacifista. It's freaky."

"Quit your whining uncle! Orders are orders. We got our job and we gotta do it! Don't like it? Take it up with Sakazuki."

"How cruel Sentomaru. You're very mean today. I'm just concerned. If I didn't know better I'd say we're going to do a Buster Call. But we're not, which is weird."

"We finally got an opportunity to remove one of the Emperors from the equation. I'd say anything less would be stupid. If we can destroy the remnants of Big Moms forces before they could recover or before the Silvers could consolidate their power then blowing up one or two islands is a small price to pay for victory."

"Ooooh. Scaaary!"
Kizaru raises his hands and takes a step back as a jest. But he quickly halts his movements.
"Oh? Looks like we got some complications."

"What?"

The warship is suddenly rocked as a shell hits its deck. As the nose area is hit its back lifts briefly in the air before falling back down and making big waves in the water. At the area of impact stands a figure that fell from the sky.
"Yo!"

"Uh-ooooh. Who let the dog in? We talked about this guys. Everyone likes puppies but you can't bring every stray on the ship! Especially if they are so bitey..."

Sentomaru brandishes his axe as Kizaru is busy joking around.
"Mad Dog... What are you doing here?"

"Oh I was just in the neighborhood. Visiting my boy and all. Noticed a small navy heading the same way. Thought I'd come over and say hi! Now, what'cha all doing?"

"We're under no obligations to tell you that we're after Cavalier! Uh... Forget I said that!"

"Whew! Thanks for being upfront! Usually bigshots like you need at least an hour of torture before you squeal. To show my gratitude I'll kill you last!"
As she taunts Sentomaru she quickly ducks as a kick flies above her head at the speed of light.
"Ah Kizaru. Always the party pooper. Tell me, how many times do I have to butcher your whole crews in front of you admiral types before you learn your lesson?"

"Well you know, we who reached the top ranks are kinda old and we're stubborn as mules. So thank you for being patient with us Eliza-sensei!"

Half an hour later the small armada has completely stopped in its tracks. The sails on every ship are broken so they can only rely on paddles to move. Roughly half of the ships are currently in the process of sinking, are on fire or in critical condition. Kizarus suit has been roughed up but Eliza is bleeding profusely at her forehead. She's panting heavily but she seems happy.
"Well that was fun! Unfortunately I got a million better things to do. So I'll see you later Kizaru! Please do give me a call the next time you gather a bunch of promising youths just to die like this! Okay, bye!"

As she's about to jump overboard and into the water Kizaru smirks.
"Leaving after getting us all excited like that? That's cruel Eliza-chan. Very cruel. Sentomaru!"

"On it!"

The large marine whistles and something jumped out from the bowels of the ship and after Eliza. A gasp and five seconds later Eliza is thrown back onto the vessel with a massive wound going from the right side of her hips to her left shoulder. She lies on the deck bleeding profusely as she looks up and sees the dark silhouette of what attacked her. Gritting her teeth she looks at Kizaru.
"Wha-What did you do?!"

"Hmmmmmm. I guess you'd call it "escalation of the conflict". But we just call it a secret weapon."

"WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU MADMEN DO?!"

"Us? No no no. It was the brilliant Dr Vegapunk who did that. But please don't strain yourself, you're wounded. Now... rest."
Aiming at Elizas head Kizarus leg began shining before he kicking her at full force and knocking her out.
"Phew. Akainu-san! This is Kizaru!"

"Borsalino! I haven't received a report from you for over thirty minutes! Status report NOW! Are you in position?"

"I'm afraid not. We hit a little mmmmm bump on the road. Half of the force is gone."

"WHAT?! YOU INCOMPETENT BABBOON! I'LL HAVE YOUR HIDE FOR THIS!"

"Relax Akainu-chan. We may not be able to get Cavalier but... I think we got something better."

How could they forget what happens when someone dares to hit back against Silver? Last time it happened, it ended with 23 tenryubito dead and that was just for injuring his body and trying to imprison him. What the fuck do they think is gonna happen when he learns they kidnapped his mom?

>>5451456
Yeah, this is gonna make Mariejois look like Amble Village.
>>
Idea

What if we start Cross Guild to sabotage the Marines?

They needed shitloads of prep time for the Whitebeard War, meaning we have a couple of weeks considering all the damage Eliza did.

So if we start attacking them where it hurts while they prep up, we could easily take em down when the time comes.

Repeat Ennies Lobby, Impel Down and Marineford all at once while bounty hunters start killing Marines everywhere.
>>
We could even give an Offer to the Revs, we cause the biggest Distraction with this War.

And they get to do as much damage as they like to the CD as they can.

Or if we want the WG to submit, we send them the corpses of their valuable 'Admirals' as warning of whats to come.
>>
>>5451471
i think you're vastly underestimating the WG, like on admiral level fighters i think we've only got us, with maybe katakuri being able to pull a win out, and in terms of numbers and equipment they're vastly our superior, and if we go to war with the WG theres a massive possiblity BB decides to attack us, like us trying to go head to head with the WG we'd be fucked, any battle needs to be going in accomplishing an objective and getting out, so for eliza its going in saving her and as a side objective cxausing some dmg
>>
I mean, Sweet Commander is roughly that level, give or take.

And we got about 9 sweet Commander level fighters.

Plus, with our growing Fleet, we can cause some good damage, and BB might be busy with his own thing.

But yeah, lets sabotage them all we can
>>
>>5451496
my dude sweet commander are nowhere near admiral level, like im pretty sure admirals are like a middle stage power wise between a yonkos right hand and the yonko themselves, like i think you're sleeping on the admirals heavy here, like literally in the interlude the only during eliza and kizarus fight spook only wrote that his suit was roughed up
>>
>>5451498
Yes, while she was fighting off an Entire Fleet, Sentomaro, and her only injury was a bleeding forhead.
>>
>>5451507
i didn't say anything about elizas strength? plus theres a big chance everyone else just stood back during the fight knowing they'd just get in the way, well until the seraphim anyway

>>5451446

>>5451518
You were drawing a comparison with the fight, and I'm pointing out Kizaru isn't the guy who goes headfirst in all fights, just he was using all his assets.

Yea, if it was that easy to just wipe out the WG and marines, kill off their admirals etc etc it would have been done already.

"Excellent! You won't regret this kid! With my expertise and your brutish ways we'll be unstoppable!"
The two of you continue shaking each others hand with forced smiles on your faces until Crocodile wants to let go. He's clearly annoyed as he looks down when you refuse to let him go.
"Hey let-"

His fingers crackle as you quickly yank him close enough that you could touch your forehead to his if you wanted to. Daz Bones turns his arms into knives and leans in to move but notices Murrays anchor around his neck and Wills crossbow poking his spine. You chuckle for a good long while, long enough to make Crocodile feel more disturbed than angry.
"Hehehehe! Good! That's what I like to hear! But I want you to remember one thing. If you break any of my rules know that I'm not as nice as Luffy. Or Whitebeard."
You let him go.
"Other than that you can do whatever you like! Even becoming pirate king. See if you can pull that off!"

He looks at his hand which hasn't been replaced with a fishing instrument yet and then meekly replies.
"Noted."

"Good!"

After hearing you snap your finger Murray and Will release Daz as well and Crocodile returns to him. As he dusts his coat off Crocodile scoffs.
"I'm regretting this deal already."

"KEKEKEKE!"

"Hmph. We'll see who'll be laughing once I show you a few tricks whelp."

"KEKEKEK-COUGH COUGH COUGH!"

Your laughter turns into a violent and painful cough that you can't stop. As you raise your hand to your mouth you feel something escaping your mouth and your palm feels sticky from it. Looking at it you see that it's deep red. A moment later it's not just your mouth that's leaking blood but your nose too and after that you roll off your couch from a violent spasm. As your vision fades you see Lyda rushing to you while everyone else assumes a fighting position just in case Crocodile or anyone else seeing this tries something.

However much time has passed since you passed out you do not know but given how numb your limbs are it must've been a while.
"S-Stitches?"

"Good. You're awake."
Lyda does not look at you while she's fiddling with her medicine cabinet.
"It's been five days if you're wondering."

"Five days? W-What happened?"

"Exhaustion."

"B-But I've been resting ever since I beat Big Mom."

"No. Not that kind of exhaustion."
She finally turns to look at you and her eyes have large bags under them. She probably has not slept much for those five days.
"Put simply, you're dying."

"W-What? Don't be ridiculous. I'm fine! Look-"
You try to get up but you can't move a single muscle.
"HNNNG!"

"I'm not gonna sugarcoat it."
She sits down next to you.
"Everyone else already knows it. Only fair that you do as well. By my estimates you won't live past the age of 30. And that number will keep decreasing."

"Am I... sick?"

"Sick in the head."

"I told you time and time again. That you need to take better care of yourself. I stopped not because you learned your lesson but because I realized it's like telling a bird to stop flying. It's in your very nature to push your own limits. So... I tried my best. We all did. To keep you going as much as possible. But that last stunt with Big Mom probably shaved a decade off your lifespan."

"But that can't be. I'm fine. I was fine! I healed!"

"Yes. But there is only so much a body can do, even yours. Almost every day you put yourself through enough abuse to kill a normal man. And while you're not normal even you have limits. You're just hitting them now. Every time your body replaces the broken parts they come out a bit more flawed, not weaker but structurally not sound. It's the same as aging for others."

"I... see."

"The fire that burns twice as bright lasts half as long, as the saying goes. You're not Big Mom or Kaido or another one of those freaks. While you were born special you're nowhere near them. All of this-"
She points around the room.
"You built by pushing yourself past the limits. Now it's time to pay the price. If you take it slow you may still live a comfortable life of luxury, even if it'll be short."

"C-Can you do something about it?"

"Of course I could. That was always the focus of my research. But... you know the price of that. I could replace parts of you over and over again. It might even buy you a few years. But there are things that can't be replaced. And who knows if you'll still be you by the end of it. The other is... you know what it is. The same thing Big Mom did. Life for life. Question is are you willing to do that?"

>Well I was in this to have a good time, not a long time
>Well if we have the organs lying around might as well put them to good use
>Well... if it was good for Mama...
>Just... give me some time. I need to think about this
>Other?
>>
>>5454061
>the problem was that mama was forcing people to give up their lives. People that lived under her rule. You'll find plenty of people willing to trade some of their life. If sure some marines would give so of their life in exchange for not killing them when they fuck with us or we fuck with them.
>>
>>5454061
Shit, this ain't good. Hmm, when you say life for life does she mean Big Mom stealing people's lifespan? If so Silver could just steal the lifespan of people he would otherwise kill, in any other case he can buy the lifespan from others like he did when he made Shelly. Im sure there would be people willing to sell. So...

>Whats the problem Stitches? Im a pirate, if I need something I'll take it or I'll buy it. This isn't any different.
Something like this maybe?
>>
>>5454061
>>Well I was in this to have a good time, not a long time
We are so close to the finish line, what's the point
>>
>>5454079
>Second

it seems perfectly in line with Silver and, let's be honest, I don't think he'd wanna start dying just when the gettings good.
>>
>>5454082
What's the point? More life = more fun anon.
>>
Honestly, does Silver even give a shit about living for long?

He's still got 12 years on him, and honestly I don't see him minding him dying as long as he had fun all the way
>>
>>5454086
The quest is almost caught up with the manga, once the story is done Silver might as well be dead. Let him die I say!
>>
>>5454061
Part of me wants to say that Silver wouldn't mind dying, and he wouldn't, but only if it was on his terms.

Wasting away in bed is a bitch way to go and frankly accepting nature's limits is just as bitchy.

We want to live? Then we fucking live. If Stiches wants to help us with that then even better, just makes it easier.

Also I wouldn't put it past us to just outright possess our corpse should we kick it.
>>
>>5454089
See on a meta level that is true, but on a Silver level he always looked down on quitters so I just can't see him saying "Well alright then, this is something beyond my ability to influence so I guess I'll just lie down and die then"

Because the concept of "beyond my ability to influence" just doesn't exist in that twisted little mind of his.
Fuck fate, fuck rules.
>>
>>5454088
Yeah Silver wouldn't mind dying but it doesn't mean he wouldn't prefer to live. Reminds me of Vulcan from TTS "Why would i want to be dead? All my friends are here!"

>>5454089
You think Spooky will end the quest once it gets caught up to the manga? I'd like for him to comment on that before coming to such a conclusion.
>>
>>5454077
Hell we dont even need to do that. There are idiots more than willing to trade years off their life for money and we've got more than we care to count.

I'm willing to bet there's a chucklefuck out there willing to trade a few million for a decade or two.
>>
Hmm, so had s'more ideas for the War

We gonna play as dirty as can be?
>>
>>5454088
>>5454092
Yea, so is Silver afraid of dying? No, what he is afraid of is not living.
Wasting away in a "comfortable life" until his body just gives up sounds like hell to him, much better getting killed by someone, lose a battle and just not make it. Do what he enjoys until the last.
Not giving up, never giving up.
>>
>>5454092
Well considering that I have precisely 0 clues as to where the story will go I won't just end if we catch up. But I would prefer to wait and see what some of the answers are for the big reveals. However at the same time many of those mysteries don't really concern Silver personally. So we'll see.

The story will end when it ends. That's it

The way I see it, Silver trying to cheat his way out of the consequences of his own actions would be like backing down, and Silver never backs down. Like he'd say, no take backsies.

I didn't say that, just that theres not a lot to go from here

Well it looks like most people think that Silver should do some soul trading as a potential remedy

>>5454061
>Sure, everything has a price. We made Shelly the same way, didn't we?
>>
>>5454111
But we've always cheated our way out of things, everything Silver does breaks conventional rules and thinking. And his body.

We haven't really anything fair and square since we torched Amble, and I don't think we gave them warning either. But I don't think it will just be way to bypass it all, I bet it's going to hurt. I bet it's going to be awful to force a body to remain alive against nature and good sense.

>>5454127
we punched our way out of things, which is perfectly fine by Silver standards

"Dying huh?"
You look up at the ceiling.
"People die. I know. And I knew that I'd die too. Sooner or later. Probably sooner to be honest. So I'm not at all afraid of dying."

"Does that mean-"

"What I'm afraid of is not living. I still have my family and plenty of stuff to do. I only had three years with you guys. And I say that's not enough. Not even if I have ten more. You know me. I always want more! Stitches. Are you okay with helping me live longer?"

"Well I have no intention of leaving the crew as long as you live. And I'll never refuse to help a patient. But what kind of treatment do you want? Or rather, which one are you willing to put up with?"

"Hmmmm. The problem with Mama was that she was keeping people as basically slaves. But other than that she was just a pirate doing her thing. I bet we could find plenty of people willing to sell a year or two of their lives for riches. And beyond that I can always just take what I want from my enemies. A lot of cowards would be willing to give a few years if I just spared them."

"Understood. As long as you can find people willing to give up parts of their souls I can work with that. Just like with Shelley."

"Excellent. How about that other stuff? Can we replace bits on top of that?"

"We could... but I advise against it."

"Why?"

"I still don't fully understand the full extent of a human souls function. I'm not entirely sure how the flesh works in relation to the soul. Is the soul a thing inside or is it spread around the whole body? If the latter we risk wasting precious life force with each transplant. And I hate being wasteful."

"Are you really going to waste this opportunity to experiment and find it out?"

"Experimentation and treatment both have their time and place. Never at the same time. If I learn anything during practice it's purely coincidental. I won't make you my guinea pig Silver. Especially not when it could endanger you."

"Fine. Soul transplants only."
You close your eye.
"Jaws! I know you're listening at the door! Come here!"

The door creaks open revealing the whole crew behind it.
"Heh. Sorry cap."

"It's okay. Go out and get me a guy who looks like he'll do anything for money. I'll give him an offer he can't refuse."
>>
After a quick nod and thirty minutes Murray comes back with some rather young looking guy. He looks like a fresh recruit on some no-name pirate crew. He seems nervous as hell as he's forced to enter the infirmary.
"E-E-Eeer it's nice to meet you I-"

"Don't care. Listen. You look like someone fresh off an island. You a deckhand?"

"Y-Yes sir! I'm with the-"

"Good. Now listen. Want to make a fortune? Buy yourself a nice sword so people respect you?"

"Y-Yes sir!"

"Good. I'll give you five million right here right now for every year of your life."

"What?"

"I thought I was clear. One year, five million. Do you accept?"

He looks like he's about to ask if you're serious but one glance at your crew reveals to him that you are indeed VERY serious. He swallows hard and walks up to the side of your bed. Biting his lips he asks you one question.
"Five million? I guess I could go with five less years..."

"Then shake my hand!"

With hesitation he grasps your extended skeletal hand and the moment he does you squeeze him tight as Stitches approaches. Touching his shoulder with one finger she draws a trail from him to you and his face shrivels up like a prune while you feel the strength returning to your limbs. Rejuvenated you finally manage to sit up with a sigh of relief.
"Bring him twenty-five million now."

Murray hands over a suitcase full of money to him and he holds it tightly to his own chest. Only now does he realize what he has done, or rather that you were 100% sincere with him.
"Hah. HAHAHA! Thank you so much!"

"No. Thank you. Now don't spend it all in one place. Or do. I don't care."

"I can't wait until the others hear about this!"

If people want to sell, we're buying. And just like that there is a reason for Silver to accumulate wealth and power, to keep going. Rather then just keep going for the sake of it., this could very well be a milestone in his character!

That or we just gave BB the biggest boner imaginable and he's coming for us willing to sacrifice everything for Lyda.

>>5454175
>Hold on. You can't tell anyone. Don't want this to get out

I really don't want people to know that our doctor can extend people's lives. we already know that Blackbeard is after her for her devil fruit swapping abilities.
>>
>>5454175
>Good. Spread the news. I want everyone to know about this

Dont really care to keep it a secret to be frank.

Our main goal with this is to get back into peak condition. Might as well get it done in one fell swoop.

I suppose the greatest threat would be to stiches but since she's running with us the only thing that would be different would be a higher bounty. And even then only she knows how to do it. Its not built into her devil fruit, it's an exploit. If you kill her for the fruit you couldn't do it anyway cause you wouldn't have her medical knowledge.

Youd have to kill her and raid her stuff and be smart enough to actually use it, and before all of that youd have to go through "I kill Emperors" Silver and his crew of maniacs, all of whom will be coming down on you like the wrath of Old Testament God.

And even if you did ALL of that youd still have to find someone willing to trade and hold onto the fruit yourself.
>>
>>5454175
I don't see why anons want to put Lyda in danger since finding people willing to sell is so easy.
>Hold on. You can't tell anyone. Don't want this to get out

Because other then killing anyone we deal with it's going to get out.
random dude shows up with 25 million out of nowhere and questions are going to be asked.
Not to mention the bragging, being getting drunk, robbed for the cash and asked where he got it etc etc.

There just isn't a way to manage that kind of information. it *will* get out, and fast. An adorable walking, talking, spring of youth will ensure that.

btw are we gonna confront the crew about hiding shit from us? like this is the 2nd time they've done this now with the first being the big mom thing and silver even said they needed to talk about that at a later point, cause at this point its less the crew respects silver and more they treat him like a kid who they want to keep happy
>>
>Good. Spread the news. I want everyone to know about this.

What are the WG gonna do? Kill us some more?
>>
>>5454192
Lyda can just trade the memory of the deal and even if she couldn't there's nothing wrong with getting some extra time by not shouting about her ability from the rooftops.

>>5454175
>>5454175
>>Hold on. You can't tell anyone. Don't want this to get out

Holy fuck that's genius. Let's do that, let's trade the memory of the deal to maintain secrecy.

Besides, the WG won't care because they planning to kill us already and we are in our prime.

And BB, why would he even want it? He's already lived twice the life of others

>>5454207
Yeah silvers not really about hiding shit for safety, he'd shout it from the rooftops and dare anyone to try and start shit

"Good. Tell your friends. Tell everyone! I want people to know what I offer."

"Will do!"

As the guy runs out your crewmembers look at you inquisitively.
"Are you sure that's a good idea?"

"Don't care Toxin. I literally don't have to care anymore. Mama had powers like that. What did anyone do about it? What could they? Nothing."

"If you say so. Anyway I brought you some roast duck with milk porridge. You must be starving. How are you feeling by the way?"

"Like someone who just woke up after a five day nap and ate a guys soul."

"Fair."

As you start eating the duck Lyda starts nudging everyone outside, citing that you still need to rest. Even she leaves the room and once she closes the door behind herself only you remain in the room. And Nutmeg of course. She gives you a knowing look as she kneels down next to your bed and pats your head. Not saying a word she continues to run her fingers through your hair as you eat. When you finish the duck you offer her the porridge.
"I'm not hungry."

"Okay."

You continue eating your dessert in peace with your wife silently watching you. When you finally eat the last morsel of food you look at her.
"Sorry."

"No. I'm sorry. I should've seen how hard you were pushing yourself. But that's how I've always known you. I... I just thought that's simply how you are. It never occurred to me that you actually had to put effort into... all that. You just made it so easy."
She lets out a weary sigh.

"I won't do it again."

"No. Just don't. I'm okay with you risking your life. But don't lie to me. I was okay with everything up until now, no matter how crazy or over the top it was. Hell, I even agreed to you forming a fucking harem because I know that it's in your nature to want more. Always more. Nothing will change that. Even if it burns you out."
She stands up and looks down at you.
"I'm fine with that too. But I want something in exchange."

"Ask anything and it's yours."

"Kids."

"PFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFT!"
You almost throw up all the precious food you just ingested.
"WHAT?"

"If your days are numbered I don't want to take any chances. I think I've been patient enough up until now. But now I'm not gonna wait anymore. I want kids and they WILL have a dad! YOU HEAR ME?!"

"Gulp. Y-Yes..."

It took one more week after that before you managed to get out of bed. You could've done it sooner but circumstances dictated that you stay a bit more. It also helped that people heard the news that apparently they can exchange "life" for money. And with the veritable mountain of wealth that you have you managed to acquire many replacement years. Lyda said that your test results are improving as a result of these infusions but there is a slight problem with them. Namely that those acquisitions don't translate 1 for 1. A single year for an average man does not equal one year for you. The kindling that fuels a campfire for an hour can not maintain a raging inferno but for a second. Still, it is sufficient as treatment.

Sadly that's not the only information that spread. Apparently people managed to connect the dots that you are not in the best of conditions. So the moment you stepped into the light at your usual place people immediately took their chance and jumped you.
"YOU'RE WIDE OPEN CAVALIER!"

The blades of the assassins shatter on your skin and Marcella starts dismantling them once they realize what a terrible mistake they made. You sit down to the sound of their screams and look at Pascia and Dias who have been dutifully kept things running during your sick leave.
"So. Anything I missed?"

"Not much captain. But are you sure you're okay?"

"Never better. Just need to take things slowly for now. But I'm good. So what's up?"

"Not much thankfully. Everything is in order as much as it can be."

"Good! Spider?"

"There is the matter of the Levely. I think you might be interested to hear what happened. Also we should really get started on your wedding since you managed to upset poor Ms Boa so much."

>Business first. What happened with those weenies?

"Business first, then pleasure. What did those weenies do on their mountaintop?"

Ann hands you a rolled up newspaper so you can verify everything for yourself.
"The Revolutionaries assassinated one of the kings. Young Mr Sabo killed the king of Arabasta, Nefertari Cobra and apparently kidnapped his daughter princess Vivi."

"Sabo?"
You start frantically flipping through the pages and recall the events of the island where the Revolutionaries incited a rebellion just before you touched down on it. You wouldn't put it past them to do something like that. But at the Levely? No, that doesn't make any sense.
"No no no. Doing that away from the country is pointless. Unless there was a coup at Arabasta... no there wasn't."

"I agree that it's strange. This doesn't seem to fit Mr Sabo."

"I don't know about that. But this is stupid. If they kill the king away from the country then they can just get a new king. Who wrote this?!"

"Morgans."

The big bird himself. Of course he's not a reliable source of information, only most of the time. He does love coloring stories to make them interesting. And naturally he's not all knowing. If they fed him fake information and he doesn't know the truth then he'll just release the fake story for the sake of Big News. In your frustration you toss the paper away.
"This reeks of Government nonsense."

"Are you saying the Government lied about the Revolutionaries killing a king? Then who did it? Not even they would kill a world leader like that..."

"I don't know. All I know is that if the WG says that grass is green they are lying."

"In any case I suggest you pick that back up."
She motions at the paper.
"Because there is more. King Neptune officially announced that his island is now allied with us. That caused a bit of an uproar. However your rise to Emperor status was convenient for him. And since he was affiliated with Whitebeard before and because the Fish-men were always ignored and sometimes even hunted by the government he could tell the other leaders that he feels more safe with our flag flying above his country than with the rest of the world behind him. When Neptune demanded they give him a better offer they all backed down."

"Kek! Good for Santa! Come to think of it I haven't been to Fish-men Island in a while."

"And one more thing. Apparently two kings proposed to disband the Seven Warlords of the Sea, since in recent years they were proven not just ineffective but detrimental to the Government, due to Mr Crocodile and Mr Doflamingos actions. However they were not successful as other nations vetoed them, citing how dangerous the waters have been in recent years."

"Well look at that!"

"Instead they started searching for candidates to immediately fill the two vacancies in the system, as well as recalled the four warlords that haven't been converted to cyborgs like Bartholomew Kuma."

"Why?"

"Nobody knows."
>>
And that's where I'll have to end things I'm afraid
I'll see you guys later next week

>>5454318
I had a thought about this soul-sucking thing that were doing now. As Silver gets older is he going to require even more souls to get same amount of years? Cause I feel that's going to end really badly.

I'd rather see smug Shakky being smug to Riley, or Fishy & Family. Or some of the people who already flew our flag. Or the underworld kings we didn't declare war on, or the ones we did!

>>5456376

I wanna see the situation with Kaido and the other emperors, maybe Marco reaction?

Also, Green bull
>>
>>5457459
i mean i don't think marco or green bull would have particularly unique reactions, like we have no relationship with green bull and we talked to marco literally once, as for the emperors i'd be 100% down for kaido or BB but like GB and marco don't think shanks would be particularly special, just him going "hmm big moms dead and a new guys an emperor" and then his analysis of the new political situation
>>
>>5457469
Its big news, and Greenbull would smell weakness like he did in canon.
>>
>>5457508
yeah and they don't offer a unique perspective that we wouldn't get otherwise, like as you just said we know exactly how greenbulls probably thinking here, marco won't really care since he's quasi-retired and shanks would just be analyzing the new political situation, like none of them have any real personal stake in what happened, where as kaido had a close relationship with big mom and is interested in us personally and well BB perspective will let us know what he's up to rn since without the warlord dissolving he won't be following what he did in canon by attacking boa, and could potentially straight up rn be coming to attack us

In the deepest recesses of Marine HQ is a dungeon devoid of all sources of light. No guards are stationed there for no security measures are needed. There in lies a cube shaped cell carved from a single slab of sea stone. Only a select few people may earn the "honor" of being locked up in there. Those whose sins are so grave and so plentiful that they don't even get a mock trial. Instead their sins will be read out loud for the public so none may have any doubt in their mind that the person responsible for those crimes deserves nothing less than immediate death.

The light of a lantern pierces the darkness as a pair of heavy footsteps can be heard descending the long flight of stairs. The person locked in the cell looks up, though she can only barely see from all the swelling over her eyes.
"Garp you old goat! Hey do me a favor and ask your whipping boys to hit my left kidney for a change. I think there is still urine in my blood when I pee."

"Mad Dog..."

"Mad Dog? Hahaha! Is that how you greet an old friend after so much time? Anyway let's make a deal! How long has it been since you've seen any action you old fossil? If you get those lads to ease off a bit I promise I'll make you feel good! And I'll only bit it half off!"

"You deserve everything that's happening to you now. You know that right? Those boys all lost friends and family because of you..."

"Nah. Couldn't have been me. I don't leave survivors. And if they were not there when I killed their friends then were they really that close?"

"Sigh."
Garp sets down his lantern with a heavy sigh and sits down outside the cell.
"I... despise you so, so much you wouldn't believe it."

"Oh give me a break-"

"Because thanks to you one of my greatest regrets in life is not killing a woman when I had the chance."

"Oh sweet! How do I rank though? Is it before or after you got the son of a man killed after he specifically entrusted the boys life to you? Or how about alienating both your son AND your grandson? Or that time when you watched like a gimp when some dogfucker punched a hole in your adoptive son?"
Garp punches the wall of the cell in his frustration. Eliza smirks.
"You know if I wasn't chained to this wall you could kiss your arm goodbye."

"Stupid girl! You ruined everything! Your actions are responsible for the state the world is in! Everything is in chaos! People live in constant fear all over because they don't know if their island will be reduced to rubble in the middle of the night! The number of orphans and widows increased ten fold across the seven seas! And it's only going to get worse as both sides keep escalating the conflict! So just tell me. Why? Why did you have to bring back Rocks?!"

"Tch. Stupid old man."
The captive pirate scoffs.
"You think without me the world would be better? Nah. Different, sure but not better. The same way this isn't any better or worse. Because it's not me who messed it up. Not for lack of trying of course. But I just couldn't quite manage to outdo you guys. No matter how much I flexed I couldn't beat money. Clones, cyborgs, artificial devil fruits and now child soldier lunarians. And you call me crazy. Typical government dog."

"How many decades? How many decades has it been? And you're still the same snot nosed bastard Xebec picked off the streets! All of that is because of you and your ilk. You stupid children keep forcing the governments hand to escalate things! Would it kill you to take responsibility just one time?! You unleashed a monster that was better left buried and now we're all paying for it! You should've left that bastard to die on that island Eliza!"

"Take that back."
Garp picks up his lantern and turns to leave.
"Hey Garp!"

"Hmmm?"

"I didn't do it."

"What?"

"You think I did it but I didn't. And I'd never have the heart to turn him into something he isn't or doesn't want to be. Got that?"

That was not the answer Garp was expecting. And it definitely was one he didn't wish to hear.
"I see."
He looks over his shoulder and gives the chained up girl a look of understanding, perhaps even sympathy.
"Well I guess I'll see you later."

"Yep."

"BEGE!"
Katakuri shouts as he punches the man shaped castle with his gigantic fist.
"OPEN UP OR I'LL CRACK YOU OPEN MYSELF!"

Bege grunts from the pain as he's getting pulverized. The people on the inside, especially his wife worry about his wellbeing. He tries to fight back but his oversized hands are inadequate to catch an opponent that much smaller and that nimble. So he tries to aim his wall mounted cannons at him but they all explode one by one as the cannonballs detonate inside.

"H-He clogged the guns with mochi! Who is this guy?"
Nami screams as the Firetank Pirates rush to the window.

"Don't just gawk! Open fire! We must protect father or we're done for!"

"R-Right!"

Vito, Gotti and Nami, alongside several other henchmen all open the nearby windows and open fire at the sweet commander. But to their horror his body turns into mochi and simply shifts out of the way of every bullet. The death glare he shoots back at them is enough to make a mans blood freeze. However before the Charlotte could attack back by slithering in through the open windows and massacring everyone inside something happens. A bright orange light engulfs everything and all eyes instinctively turn to the source. Luffy and Chopper can't contain themselves when they see the giant fire breathing bat.

"L-LASER BEAM!!!!!"
"L-LASER BEAM!!!!!"

Others like Sanji are not so enthusiastic.
"You got to be kidding!"

And Katakuri seems even more concerned.
"Hmph. It started. Then-"

With a change of plans he expands his body into a tidalwave of mochi and pushes Bege off the roof. This not only gives him a convenient way to get far away from the fight but also provides an excellent way to gain access to all the squishy enemies hiding inside Beges innards. Though after landing the castle was severely damaged the people inside were not quite as dead as Katakuri had hoped. Instead a small, monkey like boy jumped out and began fighting him.
"EVERYONE! THIS GUY IS DANGEROUS! GET AWAY WHILE I HOLD HIM OFF! WE'LL CATCH UP LATER!"

Not needing to be told twice the others made a run for it right away with the Straw Hats and Firetanks splitting up so that the enemy would also need to split their attention. This worked superbly and they managed to reach the harbor where they docked encountering only minimal resistance. With Jinbe assuming command the crew gets the Sunny ready for departure.

"Unfurl the sails quickly! And prepare for a long tough engagement! As strong as Luffy-kun is Katakuri is a mighty foe! We'll have to fend for ourselves for hours most likely!"

Meanwhile Pudding who tagged along with them begins taunting the crew.
"You utter fools! By staying here you've sealed your fate! The underwater security snails know each and every movement of yours as long as you're in Mamas territory! HAHAHA! Once your captain falls Katakuri will use them to hunt you all down!"

"Wow! Thanks for the warning Pudding-chan!"

Puddings face turns red after Sanji speaks.
"Y-You're welcome darling! I HOPE YOU ALL DIE!"

"So Jinbe, should we wait outside Big Moms territory?"

"I'm afraid we can't. I don't think Luffy-kun will be in any condition to seek us out from so far away. We'll just have to grit our teeth and-"
But his mouth stood agape as he spoke when he saw dark clouds gathering over Wholecake Chateau. The others ask him what's wrong and as they turned around to check for themselves the rest of the Straw Hats also caught a glimpse of the titanic pillar of lightning that struck Mamas seat of power and demolished the whole thing.
"Disregard what I said! We need to get as far away as possible to protect the Sunny!"

After they managed to get several islands worth of distance between Wholecake Island and themselves the Straw Hats watched the horizon with morbid curiosity, unable to turn their eyes away from it. And given that Big Moms fleets were simply incapable of moving due to the sheer number of ships fleeing Wholecake Island they were not really disturbed at all. Fire and lightning fell from the sky like rain, waves of force powerful enough to tear islands in half sometimes zipped right past them and both the sea and the air quaked from the shock of some impacts. And then... the island started moving.

"Pedro... I'm scared."

"It's okay Carrot. So am I. We can't even rely on the full moon with all these black clouds."

Chopper shut his eyes long ago and hugged Namis leg tightly for comfort. She tried to calm him down and telling him that things will be alright but not matter how good of a liar she is not even she could make that sound convincing.
"Jinbe. Did we make a mistake?"

"No. I'm afraid there is nothing we could've done there. I just hope that Luffy-kun took the fight to another island. I never would've imagined Big Mom is such a formidable opponent. Or that Cavalier could fight at her level."

"Man. That young man has quite the tenacity yohoho. My bones still ache when I recall trying to fend off Big Mom.

Meanwhile Sanjis new wife is holding his hand tightly.
"I've... never seen Mama like this before."

While normally he'd be ecstatic to hold a pretty girls hand like this Sanji felt nothing but anger over the fact that she was clearly terrified.
"Don't worry Pudding. Everything will be fine. I'm sure of it!"
If only he knew that the two of them were not routing for the same side.

A while later things calmed down. The contrast of the eerie silence and the roaring battle that seemingly shook the totality of Totland was unnerving. Out of morbid curiosity they steered the ship closer to Wholecake Island, close enough for them to see the absolute devastation that swept the land. They had no words. They all sailed the New World for a while now, they've seen unbelievable things and they always managed to prove that they were worse thanks to those grueling two years they spent preparing. But this? This is the true power of a Yonko. Not even Pudding, not even Jinbe had any inkling of the true scope of such monsters. Now they do. And now they no longer have any illusions about how terrible they are. Their silent watch is only broken by the ringing of a den-den mushi which they hastily pick up, if only so that something could divert their attention from the horror of such forces.
"HELLO? LUFFY?!"

"Hey Nami... I won! Shishishi!"

Without wasting any time they turned around and headed for Cacao Island where he and Katakuri went over the course of their fight via the Sky Walk technique. Straw Hat was not in a good shape after that. He reached the very end of his stamina, one of his eyes was rendered useless, shards of glass had to be extracted from his mouth after Katakuri force fed it to him and shattered it in his mouth and practically every bone in his body sustained some sort of damage. But he won. He was still conscious. Yet just after they brought him onboard he fell asleep. And with the Charlotte Family having bigger things to worry about they sailed away safely. Several days later they received the newspapers.

"Pedro! Pedro! Do you see that?"
Carrot pestered her senior who kept holding his face due to the discomfort his pulsating eyesocket gave him.

"Yeah. How... How did a mere child beat that?"

"It's a little known fact but Big Moms ability to steal your soul is dependent on fear. That's how he withstood it."

"But to not feel fear when faced with that... that monster? And to not just stand up to it but BEAT it?!"
Images of Linlin standing over him flashed in Pedros mind followed by similar memories of Jack the Drought, the man who almost single handedly destroyed his home. He may not know the full scope of en Emperors power but he knows that of an emperors underling. Suddenly something else pops in his mind, something that was buzzing around in the background of his consciousness but now it surged to the forefront.
"D-Did anyone else see a mink fighting with on that pirates side?

"I did! I saw him! But I did not recognize that rat-mink-teia."

Pedro took out a cigarette with his shaking hands and managed to light it with great effort.
"Good. Good. Neither do I-gara. Then maybe that mink was born abroad. And maybe that person doesn't know about Zunesha."

"My my. Young man Silver really did it. Quite impressive. Oh and speaking of Emperors, I almost forgot I had this stolen from Big Moms vaults!"
Brook produces a rubbing of the road poneglyph he managed to make.
"I guess that's what happens when you no longer have a brain yoho!"

"Silvers are scary! Silvers are scary!"
"Silvers are scary! Silvers are scary!"
Nami and Chopper muttered in unison as they silently swore to each other that they'll never EVER engage that mad crew of monsters and if Luffy gets any funny ideas they'll strap him down and euthanize him.

Speaking of which.
"Hmmmmmm. How did you get that strong Sissy? Yosh! Instead of Big Mom I'll have to kick his ass after Kaido! Hmph!"

"B-But Luffy."

"What's that Chopper?"

"When you punched Big Mom she flicked you away like a fly."
Chopper spoke with snot overflowing his nostrils.

"Bah! Details! Anyway I'm hungry! SANJI! Hmmm? Sanji?"

The cook is absent from the party, instead he bought himself a spare copy of the paper and took it inside alongside the breakfast he prepared for his wife.
"Pudding-chan? Are you awake?"

"I am now. What's all that ruckus outside?"

"I'm... terribly sorry. I know it's not much but I thought I'd prepare you a decent meal. To ease the pain."
He hands over the news to her.
"If you need anything then just tell me."

As she unfurls the paper Puddings three eyes all water up an she breaks out in tears. Her new husband is quick to embrace her and tell that it's going to be fine. But he still does not realize that his wife does not share his sentiment. Pudding does not cry tears of sorrow but tears of relief and joy. They both lived through a childhood of pain and abuse at the hands of their respective parents. But where Sanjis still felt a deep familial connection to his father and swore vengeance against Silver for what he's done Pudding is secretly thanking him for ridding the world of that monster she called mother. For no matter how strong of an attachment she had to Big Mom every time she tries to feel sad for the passing of her mother all she can remember is the alienation, the insults, the isolation and the hateful psychopath that Linlin forged her into. Even now she can't fully express the genuine love she feels towards the first man who showed affection to her after the reveal of her true nature. And for that Pudding will never ever forgive her mother.

"WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!"
A man weeps like a baby as he drowns his sorrows in copious amounts of booze.
"JOKER! My sweet little Joker! WEEEEEEEE! Why did you have to loose? It's not your fault that you suck so bad but still! And Jack! Jackie boy! My widdle baby! He tried to break you out and they beat him like a rug!"

"Master Kaido I'm right here."

"SHUT YOUR CAKEWHOLE YOU SON OF A BITCH!"
He smashes the ground with his kanabo before raising his gourd to drench himself in sake again.
"PWEH! And now we ran out of our precious smiles too! WHAT WILL WE DO?"

"H-He's going back and forth between types of drunkenness. Have you seen anything like that?"
A mook dares to open his mouth before he's uppercutted through the roof and into the starry sky.

"And that little germ keeps bullying us. Sigh. That's all I deserve honestly. I'm so pathetic I wish I was a sea cucumber. Hic."
Kaido wipes his mouth clean before continuing.
"I even got myself one of those CUTIE PIE worst generation kiddies. But all they keep doing is sulking in a cell without obeying me. Even though I did all I could. Sigh. As usual I am the one who'll have to do everything. AND THOSE SONS OF BITCHES WILL PAY! Both that Straw Hat and Cavalier! Those little shits will rue the day they crossed me! Mark my words! Or at least when we start burning the world to the ground. Because I can't leave until then. Fuck this country. OH WE'RE GONNA HAVE SO MUCH FUN THEN TEE-HEE!"

"Master Kaido! Master Kaido!"
Another one of his minions rushes in.
"Important news!"

"Huh? Leave me be. Can't you see I'm bubsy? Hic."

"SIR! YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST SEE THIS!"

"Didn't you hear?! Kaido said he's BUBSY! LEAVE!"
Jack roars at the little man.

"EEEK! B-But sir it's Big Mom! She's been killed! Look!"

"WHAT? IMPOSSIBLE! Give me that!"
Jack snatches the paper from the little man and starts squinting real hard at the small letters before he takes out his reading glasses.
"Let's see... URK!"

"Huh? Wassat Jack? Little Jackie boy scared of big words again? Hic."

"Master Kaido! LOOK!"

Jack turns the paper around and the oni like man groggily stumbles forward until his nose is almost touching the news.
"Hmmmmmmm. Which one? Hold on..."
Kaido takes a step back before smacking himself in the face with his Kanabo.
"Ow..."
He holds his head as blood drips from it.
"Oooow. That hurt. I swear if I killed my buzz for nothing you'll both pay."

When Kaido opens his eyes next he beholds the title of the paper and his eyes snap open. Better than even the smack from his own club those words snapped him right out of his drunken stupor and even his hangover. Memories of an age long past return to him of a much younger and much more pleasing to the eye Linlin.
"Oooooh? You look like you got spunk kid. Name's Linlin! Listen, don't listen to a word Rocks says. Just stick with me and I'll take care of you alright?"
And of another time. The last time they met on friendly terms. The time she saved his life by giving him his Devil Fruit.
"Kaido! Kaido! Damn it! Hnnnng! You better be grateful for this you damn brat!"

"Cough cough. Linlin? Where is Rocks?"

"He's gone kid! Now eat this! Eat like your life depends on it! We got to get out of here! Just hold on! I'll carry you!"

And he's back to the present, glaring at the bounty of the person who killed her. The one whom he once upon a time called comrade, maybe even friend at some point. It's the same man that's been giving him quite a headache recently.
"Worororororo."
And he's loving it.
"WORORORORRORO! WOOOOOOOOORORORORO!"
His eyes, those of a dragon have not been filled with so much life in a long, long while. Kaido is so overwhelmed by emotions that he ignores one of his sworn oaths and gets his hopes up. Taking his Kanabo he smashes down on the piece of paper, obliterating it in the process. With a wide smile and brimming with excitement he speaks up.
"JACK! READY YOUR SHIP AND HEAD FOR OUTER HEAVEN! NOW! I WANT CAVALIER SILVER HERE AND IN ONE PIECE!"

"B-But Master Kaido. Why not just go there yourself?"

"IDIOT! Last time I did that for the Old Man these fucking peasants almost got uppity! I won't risk all those decades of hard work when we are so close to the finish line! BUT I REFUSE TO GET HORNED UP LIKE THAT AGAIN! I will not let Red Hair or Blackbeard or the fucking Navy get their hands on him before I get a chance at fighting him!"

I can't say how much it made me smile when the only thing to even begin affecting Eliza is the idea that she should just have left us there. Because she did, and she's still feeling guilty over it.

I have an idea tho, tho it would probably have to come from Clown. Hear me out: What is the Marines greatest weakness? The fact that they're not independent and able to do as they wish. If they are as self aggrandizing and propagandistic as they tend to be an announce they have her instead of doing the smart thing and killing out Eliza-nee... I have a plan.
Let's do the exact opposite of what they'd expect.
On the grand scale of things Eliza isn't much, really. No territory, no armies or organizations. Nothing that makes the people in charge of the marines give half a damn. But do you know what they would give a shit about? Half a dozen world nobles banging on their doors with ransom notes for their relatives, offering their lives for Eliza's freedom. And it'd be something the WG would want to keep quiet on, CP0 would be dispatched but no grand army maneuvers until afterwards.

It'd be a shame if we could pull something like that off, wouldn't it? Say with the help of a former CP0 operative who probably knows the Holy Land like the palm of her hand, a mink who has extensive tunneling experience and, oh I don't know, a guy who can prevent things from being audible? I think there's potential for some sneaky breeky here, and then we'd have to survive the hammerblow... But let's be honest they were gonna do that anyway. And we'd have Eliza back!
