| Cyde chapter 17 . 2/22
Four years passed between the start of this story and the last update. Almost twice that has passed between the last update and today.
It probably isn't going to be completed if we're being perfectly honest... however, I'll follow it just in case.

Oddly enough, if Tashigi ever ended up on their ship for whatever reason and found out many of their backgrounds and why they joined Luffy, she may very well join them. I doubt it would ever happen, but it's interesting to think about. Zoro was held captive and was going to be executed by a power hungry marine and at the time Zoro was a bounty hunter. He hadn't broken any laws aside from punching Helmeppo in the face (aside from Helmeppo being a jerk, I don't think he did anything that permitted Zoro to legally punch him). Nami's island was taken over by Arlong's crew, Arlong had paid off a Marine to not say anything about what was going on, and Arlong had made Nami make maps and go out steal treasure for him at the age of 8 along with killing Bellemere right in front of her and Nojiko. Tom was tried and executed for building a ship and Franky, Tom, and Iceberg were framed for attacking a Judiciary Ship using Franky's battleships. Robin's home, friends, and family (granted, her aunt and cousin sound like assholes) were all destroyed by the government for simply studying history (the citizens were also killed and they weren't even doing that) and she was the run for 20 years because she survived and wanted to follow in her mother and the other scholar's footsteps. Hiriluk took his own life, but was almost killed by Wapol, a corrupt king who did have a seat in the World Government. Luffy knows what the nobles in Goa did and I can't remember if he was told that a Celestial Dragon is the one that shot Sabo's ship down (I think he was told). While, I don't believe it had been shown when this written, but Sanji's noble background is pretty appalling. I don't know if Usopp had any bad blood with the government or navy, but if he did then I don't think it has been shown. Lastly, there is Brook who we don't really know much about his childhood or history before the Straw Hats aside from being alone for 50 years, Laboon, and his former crew all being dead. If she knew all their backgrounds especially involving any issues with the government and navy then she may very well join them seeing as she is more of a moral justice character rather than absolute justice character and the Straw Hats alignment is more close to hers than the government's is to hers. I also don't think her (or Smoker) agreed with the reason Ace (just being the son of Roger, not his own acts as a pirate) was executed which would make her sympathize with Luffy who is also wanted just for being the son of Dragon. He was already wanted before that for other things so that addition doesn't matter as much in his case (admittedly, Ace was already wanted for other things as well before his background was discovered, but that's what he was executed for). The Straw Hats' backgrounds and other things are enough for Smoker and Tashigi to either join them or the Revolutionaries honestly.
