Crocodile trying to kill Luffy at Alabasta vs. Crocodile saving Luffy at Marineford

i love how Crocodile’s relationship with Luffy changes so much between Alabasta & Marineford. Crocodile’s plans were all ruined by Luffy, but Croc tries so hard to save Luffy during the war (and even saves Ace!). Crocodile has a lot of sides to him, and I do believe that he likes and respects Luffy on some level.
