|Reviews for Changing the Future (redone)
| Guest chapter 1 . 12/22/2023
This chapter should have started out with the Straw Hats encountering the mysterious old man and rescuing him from danger. Then after they check up on him to make sure that he is all right, the old man should then thank them, explain who he is, what his powers are, and then make the offer to give the Straw Hats a chance to save those who were lost. In response, the Straw Hats should have been initially skeptical; due to the fact that they are aware of the existence of another time-based Devil Fruit that can only go forward in time without being able to go back. The old man should explain his variation of the Devil Fruit does not work the same way and the rules of time travel works differently in terms of its use. To clarify, the old man should then ask who they wish to save, and then each person gives their answer. The old man should draw a diagram of how time travel works through the power of his own Devil Fruit; he should then explain the timeline they live is like a straight line, and the events in which the people were lost are key moments in the timeline. When a person's death is averted, it does NOT affect the timeline everyone currently lives, and instead, a new parallel timeline would be created and branch off from the change and would exist alongside the current one. Luffy, in a very rare moment, should CLEARLY understand this; much to the shock of his own crew because they know that Luffy is usually stupid most of the time. Then the rest of the chapter would be more or less the same.

I think Vivi might end up getting her own chapter that involves saving her father somehow if she joins the crew again in canon.
| Guest chapter 13 . 12/19/2023
The idea of the Rumbar Pirates finding the One Piece instead of the Roger Pirates would end up becoming the biggest historical alteration in this version of the One Piece timeline due to the countless multiple ripple effects it would cause and how it affects everyone else going forward.

If the events of the current arc were taken into account when this chapter was written, I think Dr. Vegapunk would've somehow found Ohara on his own at some point, and then the scholars would probably warn him that one of his satellites should not be created; because York will likely expose Ohara's survival to the World Government.
| Guest chapter 11 . 12/19/2023
I hope that Tsuru does end up on the right side in canon; even though there is nothing yet to indicate as such. Also, the idea of Law saving Ace in this timeline would be interesting to see if someone wrote a story about it.
| Guest chapter 10 . 12/19/2023
I wonder if Fisher Tiger will eventually become one of the Seven Warlords of the Sea instead of Jinbe in this new timeline...? I also wonder if Koala would still become a member of the Revolutionary Army in this new timeline; even though everyone she cared about is alive this time around...?
| Guest chapter 9 . 12/19/2023
With Kuina alive, one major concern is how the Zoro of this timeline will still develop his Three Sword Style due to the fact that he can't use Wado Ichimonji as his third sword. Also, I'm surprised that Kuina's father did not make an appearance in this chapter because Future Zoro should've chewed him out hard for not having faith in Kuina's strength at all, and he should've made Kuina's father apologize for it.
| Guest chapter 8 . 12/19/2023
With Bachina alive, this timeline's Usopp would be less inclined to becoming a liar because she'd make sure that he remains honest.
| Guest chapter 7 . 12/19/2023
At least the Franky of this timeline has the time to explore his options. However, I wonder if he'll build the Thousand Sunny for the Straw Hat Pirates the same way as in the prime timeline, or will he do something better...?
| Guest chapter 6 . 12/19/2023
Even if Bell-mère survives in this new timeline, I think Nami will probably still end up becoming a thief; but for different reasons than her prime timeline counterpart's.
| Guest chapter 5 . 12/19/2023
The one thing I'm concerned about is if the Chopper of this new timeline would become strong enough to hold off the Blackbeard Pirates once they come to the Sakura Kingdom in six years...?
| Guest chapter 4 . 12/19/2023
The Thousand Merry sounds like a good name, but the visualizing her upgraded form in my mind is tough. I honestly don't know if Luffy can beat Blackbeard on his own by the time he reaches Jaya though. Future Luffy should have advised Luffy to convince Ace to stay with the Straw Hats in this timeline until they reach Jaya; that way, Luffy and Ace would have a better chance taking on Blackbeard together.
| Guest chapter 3 . 12/19/2023
So Ace's and Whitebeard's deaths are averted, Akainu and Blackbeard are dead, Aokiji has a better chance of becoming Fleet Admiral (unless Kizaru is recommended instead), Whitebeard gets to live a little longer thanks to Chopper's medicine, Luffy's spirit does not get broken, and Luffy and Ace are now aware of Sabo's survival. Can the new timeline get any better than this?
| Guest chapter 6 . 12/19/2023
Maybe in this new timeline, Nami will still be a cat burglar, but she will probably only steal from corrupt Marines and evil pirates. Also, if Nojiko intends to join the Straw Hats alongside Nami, she should probably be given the role of quartermaster; since this a role she takes on in the One Piece AU fan-fiction story, "A Crew for a King."
| Guest chapter 12 . 12/14/2023
The "Egghead Arc" revealed that Saul actually survived; when Robin found out, she cried out tears of joy. Also, what happened to Ohara inspired Luffy's father to form the Revolutionary Army one year after this tragic event; as such, the apparent loss of Ohara means that it would likely still happen in this new timeline as well. The problem in this new timeline, however, is if Doctor Vegapunk finds out the truth, one of his satellites who later becomes a traitor might likely leak Ohara's new location to the World Government.
