Note to Cyclone [Aug. 9th, 2014|06:24 pm]
[Current Mood |indescribable]
[Current Music |Frozen Soundtrack]

Well, uh, hi.

First of all, I have to apologize for not updating this fanfic for so long. I have been working on other projects in the mean time (and life and my health as well), so even though I had plenty of time on my hands, I didn't spend it on Cyclone.
I am deeply sorry for that, for I know how some of you have been itching to find out more or even figure this whole thing out.

This chapter actually was a very troublesome one. I don't remember how many times I've rewritten it, edited it, until I shortened it to the length it has now. There isn't much happening in it but I guess that's fine in comparison to the other chapters and the upcoming ones.

Speaking about the whole fanfiction, a few months ago I reached a point while writing where I couldn't move on. My style of writing and my understanding of the fictional world of One Piece and its inhabitants have changed quite a lot and at some point, it was hard to wrap the planned plot around it. So that was where I got stuck.
My other mistake was that I've never really planned it this fanfic through to the end, and within the last year I realized how pointless writing, with no goal in sight, was something I couldn't do. How do bend the characters, how to develop their personalities or even what path should this story go, if I didn't even know the direction?

And so I sat down and thought it all through. Where I wanted the story to end up, how I wanted it to develop and where the characters and their changes could fit in. So, to wrap this up, I finally planned this story through, chapter by chapter, and from the current standpoint, I'm aiming for ten chapters in total.

I hope to answer some question and satisfy all your ship-related wishes as best as the plot'll let me.

Oh, and I also remember many people confusing this with an alternate universe fic. It's not, although it seems so. The thing is that the country they're currently in is set on the Grand Line, we all do know how different in science and even evolution they are. You can call this alternate universe if you prefer but it wasn't meant to be in the first place. Their goal is to return to the sea, and that will not change. Also, connections between this country and the outer world will appear in the upcoming chapters.

That's it so far, for any questions feel free to comment, review or PM me.

Thank you so much for reading till here and even more for staying with me until this point! I hope you will stay until the end! <3

Title: Miracle

Fandom: One Piece
Word Count: ~1400
Rating: PG
Character: Robin, Brook

Part of the Core collection

A/N: A random idea I had after finishing Unlimited World Red (Brook's last words there inspired me, hehe) and I finally got to write it down. The story he tells is made up, nothing special and it's definitely been out there somewhere already in some other story but the story isn't important, the interaction of the two and the impact it leaves on Robin's impression of Brook is what I was focusing on. Spreading the Brook love here~~


"That's a longer story," Brook began...Collapse )

Part of the Core collection

A/N: This is a headcanon of mine. I might give him too much credit sometimes... This was a random thing though.


Sometimes he would just pause to take in the moment. The feeling of being free, the endlessness of the sea below and the sky above, the bonding to this ship he calls his home. The feeling of being home.

He'd listen closer to the life around him, the sounds and the smells. The presence of his nakama, as the joyful squeals on deck, the distant noise of cooking from the galley, the soft piano play floating closer from his right.

And he would concentrate more, focus on the things he usually didn’t hear, the things he usually didn’t see. Then he would hear a quill scratching over parchment, the clicking of barbells, the dull sound of a hammer working on wood. If he let his imagination play, he could even hear pages of a book being turned in the far distance through thick walls.

Then he'd stand there, with his eyes closed, his senses opened, absorbing the world around him. Soaking it up like a sponge, every ounce of positivity, of being welcome and wanted, of joy and peace, of friendship and family. For the moments in which none of this will be.

For they are destined to happen, when he least expects them.
