Childbirth? Blackjack D Rouge died in childbirth? How? Her crew had that terrifying doctor, and at least a couple islands with decent hospitals under their protection! Buggy knows childbirth is dangerous, knows women still die of it today, but fuck. He calls bullshit.
But not in front of the boy who clearly blames himself for his mother’s death. Contrary to other people’s frequent claims, Buggy does know the meaning of tact.
“My condolences,” he says instead, bowing his head. “She was a great woman. Terrifying, too. Don’t get me wrong, she was definitely badass with a staff and had a mean habit of going for the crotch with the damn thing, but she was one lady I quickly learned not to cross after that first time. Captain never learnt that lesson, though. It was hilarious, watching her kick his ass whenever he got on her ner…”
Buggy pauses. Takes another look at the boy hanging to his every word. Forces himself to see past the freckles, and the curls. Imagines a moustache instead, and slightly darker hair.
“...ves,” he finishes, then downs the rest of his bottle and reaches for the next one. “She was completely out of his league, of course.”

“To interesting brats taking over the seas?” Buggy suggests, raising an eyebrow.
“May they make the Marines’ lives very interesting indeed,” Shanks aggrees, because he’s not above being petty and cursing the Marine with a ‘may you live in interesting times’ sounds like something Rouge would approve of.
They raise their bottles in a toast to future hellions.
“Wait!” He says suddenly, turning to face Buggy properly. “How the hell did Captain manage to convince the Queen of Spade that he was worth her time?”
“Hell if I know,” Buggy shrugs.
There’s a pause, and then their eyes meet and suddenly they’re laughing, laughing until they are crying, because it’s just. It’s been that kind of evening and Shanks has gone through all kinds of emotions tonight but this still completely baffles him and that’s hilarious.
