And this is perhaps the most realistic way they would get together.

Woah, the high level of in-character-ness(if that's a word) from Luffy's side is amazing. Usually in any romance which pairs Luffy up with anyone, no matter how well authors write him, there always seems to be one or two moments where he's out of character or lacking in that straightforward vibe Oda gave him. Finally, there is one story out there which manages to make him incharacter through and through.
Some beginning thoughts of Nami were slightly over-the-top and untrue (such as her only living because of Luffy) though, but other than that her characterization was alright but could've been better.
Thank you for the read and good luck in any future writting!

You know...this is nice. A little fluff every now and then doesn't hurt anybody. I appreciate fics like this because there's a goodwill/friendship towards each other that makes their romance more realistic and more likely to endure. It's nice. Now you have to balance it out by writing a fic where Nami helps out Luffy some way. Give and take. :)

... Finally! Honestly, I've been glancing through the One Piece section with Nami and Luffy as the character parameters and I haven't been finding anything particularly to my liking until this. There's other good stuff, but it's not quite right on how their dynamic would work (painting Luffy as ignorant instead of simple) and none of the ones that have the dynamic right have been short enough for just a quick little read. This is honestly perfect for the two. Luffy and Nami aren't the she's-smart-and-he's-an-idiot couple, they're the she's-smart-but-has-a-very-normal-(quote-unquote)-perspective-and-he's-simple-and,-therefore,-has-a-simple-perspective... sort of like Carrot and Angua from Terry Pratchett's Discworld series. Honestly, it's really refreshing to read something that gets the pairing so perfectly... though I do have to wonder a little at the context of the ending... they're on the deck... and earlier it was implied that other people were about... does that mean that they mysteriously turned into pumpkins before this... because I really cannot see the opening at least of that scene taking place without Sanji interrupting to ask Luffy what the heck he thinks he's doing... but oh well. Either way, this still rocks.
