Who even knows

Basically I got in my head that Law and Luffy get together before Riskua and Ace. Law and Riskua flirt and fire innuendos at each other whenever they meet, and maybe have a bit more fun (because they are both each other’s types, even if they don’t like the other that way).

After Riskua realises Luffy is jealous, she tries to get Sabo’s help to set them up. Sabo is face-palming that she noticed Luffy’s crush but can’t see Ace’s for her (or her own for Ace. Sabo knows it’s there damn it!)

Luffy frowns into his meat, watching Law and Riskua talk at the bar. Law’s got that look on his face a lot of men wear when they talk to Riskua, the one with a small smile that shows a lot of teeth. Luffy doesn’t like it when men wear that smile for Riskua. Riskua is his sister, his first mate. They can’t have her. He can feel the angry-sad-worry-no feeling he normally does when this happens. Only… Luffy flicks his eyes between the pair, noticing Riskua leaning forward off her stool, Law with his elbow on the bar so Riskua is inside his arms. Normally Riskua looks distant, like she couldn’t care. If she’s trying to get information she’d be sitting in their lap. But Riskua’s full attention is on Law, listening as he describes something with his hands.

Finishing off his plate, Luffy frowns further. The angry-sad-worry-no feeling is more ugly than usual. And it’s not directed at Law. Looking at Law makes his belly do some sort of flop and his chest feels a bit like what he imagines the opposite of Gum-Gum Balloon to feel like. The ugly feeling is directed at Riskua. That’s not right. His belly should be still, his chest rubbery, and Riskua makes him happy. Luffy looks at his empty plate and back up. Their faces don’t need to be that close to talk. Maybe if he sits between them Riskua will buy him more meat.
