So. :|a

I reacted, let us say, Not Well to the Zoro section of OP 597, and it's only been through much ranting to [livejournal.com profile] whiteadelphi and soul-searching and awesome conversation that I've been mostly reconciled to it. Not entirely! There remain issues, but at least I'm not making lineface every time I think about it, now. Instead of reiterating, I'm just going to link to the post WA made that contains basically our whole IM conversation on the topic.

To clarify before we even start, my problem wasn't at all to do with the plain fact that Zoro asked Mihawk to train him and humbled himself terribly in the process. In fact, that hardly comes up in our massive combined tl;dr AIM conversation, and I'm surprised that a lot of people seem to have issues with it. Not like he hasn't shown that he'll sacrifice his dream for Luffy at this point, after all. And yeah, it's painful and shaming and he had to throw away his pride to do it, and he doesn't care, he'll get on his hands and knees and press his forehead to the floor and hold there, bleeding all over Mihawk's carpet until the man agrees to train him, and then look so thrilled and happy when he finally does (>.> socute). I thought that was awesome, actually, it hammers in just how far he'll go—he won't just die to protect Luffy and his dream and the rest of his crew, he'll humiliate himself in front of his ultimate rival and live and get stronger in order to better support him, too.

...Which is the thought which sparks my ACTUAL problem. >_____> So here are the links.

Edit: Now with links actually added, derp.
zhadrani: (zoro is sex)
Sneaking online at lunchtime to throw up this quick post of character notes for an AU event at [livejournal.com profile] luceti. This is a bit incoherent and sketchy and mostly for my rp buddies, but anyone's welcome to say what they think!

So I'm going with genderbending for this AU. Girl!Zoro is from a universe where the Straw Hats (and possibly some other people) are and always have been the opposite sex. Key persons such as Gold Roger and Hawk-eyes Mihawk are not switched. Neither, I've decided, is anyone else in Zoro's background. Her sensei is still a man, and her rival and sensei's daughter Kuina was still that—a daughter.

Girl!Zoro Stuff )

The following is an insanely long ZoSan meme for the [livejournal.com profile] zosan community which I couldn't resist tl;dr-ing in. :)a So if you're on my flist and don't like the pairing, just skip this~

Cut for length and picspam. :Db )

This is just—a bit of something silly and experimental I've been doing off-and-on for fun. XD Playing around on my own with Zoro's voice and point of view, coming up with silly mini-adventures in the One Piece world whenever the heck something comes to me, etc. I've got an idea for a fic swirling around that will eventually—that is, could eventually—incorporate a lot of what I've been scribbling so far, but we'll see. :)a

Something for fooling around with in spare minutes...
