“Of course only that most SUPER name!!”

Welcome to the Strawhats, Nico D. Olivia!
((the ‘D.’ was at Luffy’s insistence, for good luck. parents-Frobin AU!))

SAIL LIFE’S SEA WITH ME.

Come sail with me, sail
across, the vast ocean that is life
Come sail with me, sail
life’s choppy sea, sail it as my wife

We’ll sail along, sailing as
waves rise & fall, creating our own wake
Skimming over waters,
calm & stormy, every day new chances to take

We’ll take on passengers,
sons & daughters, all sailing life’s sea together
Sailing for as long as we can,
as mother & father, but no ship can sail forever

We will stop one day,
on an island remote, one that we’ve created
Then sit down for a while,
enjoying the calm, our life’s voyage contemplated

We’ll walk the shore,
hands entwined, leaving footprints in our sand
Gazing over our sea,
all there to see, looking back while we still can

Then one day we
will just dive in, dive deep beneath the waves
Diving deeper down below,
together forever, as told neither can be saved

From the bottom we’ll
glance, back up to sunlight, golden shafts beaming through
Our tears will mix,
with salty ocean, for the life that we once knew

By shore they’ll sit,
looking over our sea, children together holding hands
Then in crafts of their own,
they’ll sail to new islands, to make footprints in their sand

Until they like us, dive beneath,
swirling & crashing waves too
Diving deep down below,
their own ocean’s waters, to join us in deep blue

—  In my thinking
  • Me, running out towards the ocean on a beach: OCEAN!!! OCEAN!!! I'M COMING TO GIVE YOU A BIG HUG!!! I LOVE YOU OCEAN!!!
  • Ocean: (big waves roll onto the beach)
  • Me: (runs away screaming)

This is my homage to the original benders (during the Era of the Avatar, of course since during the Era of Raava people would request bending abilities from the lion turtles). I always loved the fact that people learned bending from animals, since I know first-hand how much people can learn from observing animals. This is a project I’ve wanted to do for so long and is hopefully the first of many!
