Pree badass, tho.
Not owing a deadman a debt, awww yeaaaa Zoro.

This fic is really nice. But also really dark, which is a testament to your writing considering this is One Piece we're talking about... thanks for the good read.

Man, this is excellent writing. The very idea of this actually happening makes me shudder, and while I can't say I "like" this, I can definitely say I appreciate it. Awesome job.

You made me cry!

...WHAAAT? I am firmly against Shanks being a bad guy. Most definitely set dead against it... even if this is desperately AU. Still! :O
Other than that, I rather liked it.

It was really interesting to read a fic that takes the pirate (viking!) genre and makes it darker and more realistic in a cynical sort of way. I love One Piece but I sometimes wonder what would have happened if One Piece wasn't a traditional shounen series but a dark seinen (Oda's one shot collection "Monsters" hints that he could pull of not-downplayed violence and dark themes if he wanted to).
That aside, I enjoyed this fic. My favorite part was Luffy's simple question about Sanji's leg. That was all my wild imagination needed to fill all the gaps which the story had left. I loved how you depicted Sanji's reaction to Zeff's presence. Very subtle, very brilliant. The ending of Zoro's part was a bit confusing but I liked the rest of the story.

WOOT! I really liked that! It's fun to think of a goofy crew of pirates as a hardass crew of vikings; they'd be so much more badass. Except Zoro; I don't think he can BE more badass. Yup. Anyway. I really did enjoy this story! :D

Good lord this is dark! And intriguing. And heartbreaking. The thought of evil Luffy just makes me shudder. Well he's not really evil more grim but it's such a harsher world. Though I'm sort of fond of the harshness in the way they fight but it means so much different things to their characters.
Sanji's part freaked me out the most, though. Oh my god, I don't even want to know what happened to his leg. I'm assuming he lost it instead of Zeff and that just makes me shiver. I love the sort of fight he and Luffy had. It's really intense and fits the darkness of it.
Nami's broke my heart. I really like her interaction with Luffy in the end... Like giving him the one thing she could- that she was used to but also taking for herself. But I get the sense it's also to reinforce the bond that they have.
Luffy's part was the saddest. There's still some Luffy in there but the world has been warped by...whatever darkness this is. It really is a much harsher world and it's a great character study in a way but I am so glad it never turned out like this. I just want to hug them all. XD;

never thought of it that way
| yuMeNami chapter 1 . 12/31/2010
That was something. ;) Especially the part with Nami. Hmm. Kinda weird me out. I hope you write more.

Nice! Very brutal, very viking. Ha. Fucking Shanks. But that's just the way pillages work, as stated. :(
| Katzztar chapter 1 . 9/22/2010
Hmmm with this darker world, I wonder what Usopp thinks of his parents? Yasopp left to become a pirate and Banchina is the one to encourage him to leave to do so. Also it seemed that in canon, Banchina was raising Usopp to be a pirate.

Nice done! A dark version of One Piece isn't easy to pull off, but I think you've done a great job. I especially like how Luffy still straddles the line between good guy and monster in the making. The crowning touch is the end there, where Shanks acts more like an evil (but still affable) pirate, and Luffy's driving motivation is to become strong so he can track him down and kill him.

Fantastic! Utterly brillant. Cruel, clever and brutal.
Suprisingly hard to do but you did it brillantly. C:
