31 days CSI-Challenge: Day 22: Moment that made you cry

“As crime scene investigators, we meet people on the worst day of their lives. They’ve just lost a family member, somebody they loved, often in a horrible way. A piece of their heart is gone, and will never be replaced. The phrase we’re trained to offer them, “I’m sorry for your loss”, as we know now, doesn’t offer much. Warrick Brown was a young boy when his parents passed away. Much too young to learn that life can be so tragically short. But I think that it taught him how precious life is, and so he lived his life to the fullest, each day as if it was his last day. I was with Warrick on his last day. All the qualities that defined him, his tenaciousness, his deep sense of loyalty, his courage to risk his life for what he knew was right, all those traits were with him on that last day. Just before he died, we were all having breakfast together. Our team. His friends. His family. And Warrick was…he was… I’m going to miss him so much.”

I hope and think we'll get to have some backstory on shusui as it is a national treasure of the country of wano! I think he'll get to keep it for maybe getting rid of kaido's goons and giving the country their freedom back (with the help of the others). I'd like to see a more political plot with zoro & the rest being badass and helping a country and maybe we'll get to have some backstory for the cursed blades that zoro and law both have, would be cool to learn more about the weapons <3

Oh yeah, learning more about Law’s weapon would be awesome too! It’s that sort of thing as to why I think the group makeups are more important for Zoro’s group than Sanji’s. Robin is the history buff as well and we are going to an entirely new place where we could learn a lot historically.

Plus, the political, like you said. I love Zoro, but he’s not diplomatically tactful and he will need Robin (and most likely Law) to keep his mouth in check. I think a more political arc is what we are in store for. Not gonna lie, I think this group makeup is the better of two, and that’s not just cause of Zoro XD I wanna see Usopp step up and do more bad-ass things. He just discovered his own Haki, I wanna see him use it!

I hope he gets to keep Shusui. He is following in Ryuma’s footsteps and that was no small coincidence either. Plus, I read somewhere, and I wish I could remember where it was, but Zoro is one of the few, if not the only, character in One Piece to not get the “introduction box and portrait” that we get when we see a new character. Why is this?

OQ Smut #2: Sneaking Around

Originally posted by ouatdaily

Regina had learned at a young age that life wasn’t fair. Especially when it came to her. It seemed every time it gave her a taste of happiness, life would yank it away again only seconds later.

Like now.

She had just gotten a second chance at love. Only a few days ago, she was staring at the possibility of forever in Robin’s blue eyes. And the same day it was taken away when that blasted Savior had returned with his wife. Of course he would go back to her. In the end, she knew there was no other choice for him to make.

While Robin paraded around town with Marian and Roland, the Charmings circled around her. Mary Margaret and Emma would take turns “popping by” for coffee or lunch or just to chat. They’d invite her over for dinner with Henry and David had even offered to beat Robin up for her. She pulled a tight smile and thanked him but assured him that wasn’t necessary. And her little prince had moved back into the mansion, trying to keep her preoccupied when he could.

Of course, none of them could know that she hadn’t completely lost Robin. They wouldn’t understand or approve of what she was doing (Well, maybe Mary Margaret and David could but she didn’t want to chance it). But she and Robin had a connection that pulled them together. So they stole their time together when they could and pretended, at least for a few hours, that there was no Marian and it was just them again.

At first, it was thrilling and exciting–sneaking around, trying not to get caught. It was also something of a triumph for her. Marian could call herself Robin’s wife but Regina was the one he wanted to spend his nights with. As the weeks dragged on, however, being the other woman lost its appeal. Because that’s what she was–she was the other woman. The heat and passion of their encounters quickly gave way to coldness and a hollowness once he was gone. Rather than dull the pain, it made it worse. And so Regina had to come to a painful conclusion: She and Robin had to stop their secret meetings.
