    Summary

    So Zoro opens his mouth, and says, ‘Cook, I’m in love with you.’

    Sanji’s steps screech themselves to a halt, before slowly, slowly, turning Sanji around. Zoro leans forward and laces his fingers together atop of the dining table, and his hands decidedly do not shake.

    ‘I have been for a long while now, actually.’ Zoro thinks for a moment. ‘Years, I think.’

    When Zoro finally confesses, it’s a quiet affair.

    Summary

    You can only watch as the whole thing unfolds itself like a scene in a play. The old man is on his knees in a bitter facsimile of a proposal, struggling to get himself upright, but he only has eyes for the cook, standing stiff and emotionless against the window, face turned away towards the sun and black figure stark and unyielding in the kitchen. The morning sunlight streaming in through the kitchen window suddenly feels too vivid, dreamless and unreal, rendering the old man and the cook’s figures as distant and far away as memory; you feel, instinctively, that somehow this scene in the kitchen will be something that you will remember even years down the road, the smallest things the biggest in their significance, the bright edge of something being struck ringing in your ears.

    Still not looking away from the window, the cook says, ‘I’m calling Chopper.’

    On the Sabaody Archipelago, you meet an old man and a cook. The old man is a swordsman, and is aged close to seventy; the cook, however, is young, and doesn't look aged at all.

    Summary

    "It's... it's not good," Harry tells them lowly. "They've given him a month's time, only."

    There is so much he needs to explain, but his head is foggy and exhausted and he can't think properly, can't think of how to relay all that he's learned.

    "Have you heard of Alucinatio?" is what he starts with.

    "The Daydream potion," Hermione says. "The person who intakes it experiences very vivid and realistic daydreams of all they could ever want, but is essentially in a severely catatonic state out in the external world, incapable of any basic functions."

    Harry nods. "Somebody's given it to Malfoy." He remembers the tattered remains of a black cloak wrapped around Malfoy. "I think it might have been Professor Snape."

    They take a minute to process that.

    "And... the cure?" Ron asks.

    "Tears of anyone the experiencer craves love of," Hermione answers.

    Summary

    "The ex-boyfriend of my ex-fiance is my partner in crime."

    A story featuring a ragtag team of morons, bickering enemies that can't agree on anything, a heist that surely won't end well and a connection that neither Harry or Draco can deny.
