Sexual themes and death


#01 - Comfort - Luffy shuffles closer to his older brother after the older kissed his tears away, seeking greater comfort.

#02 - Kiss - It was like electricity every time their lips met and Ace never wanted the sparks to leave.

#03 - Soft - Luffy giggles and burries his face into Ace's stomach, loving the unbelievably soft side Ace hid under his tough exterior.

#04 - Pain - Luffy shudders in pain but its not because of the burn wound on his chest or the countless other wounds on his skin; its due to a wound that would never heal, invisible to the human eye but wrenched open the moment Ace took the fist of magma meant for him.

#05 - Potatoes - Ace really hadn't expected the potato he was peeling to go up in flames, but then again he hadn't expecting Luffy to come up behind him with a sleepy "good morning" and a kiss to the neck.

#06 - Rain - Ace's favorite mornings were the ones where the rain would wake him up, only to find Luffy's limbs tangled with his and the younger's face burried in his neck, but then again every morning with Luffy was automatically one of Ace's favorites.

#07 - Chocolate - Luffy couldn't help the warm feeling that bubbled inside of him when he saw the bright flush on Ace's cheeks and it didn't have anything to do with the chocolate he had just licked from the older teen's fingers.

#08 - Happiness - Ace knew of true happiness the moment Luffy and his nakama were all by his side at once.

#09 - Telephone - Nami decided playing the game of telephone was a wise decision once the message was whispered in her ear before she announced it to the whole group: "Ace wants to marry Luffy!"

#10 - Ears - Ace wasn't sensitive in a lot of places like Luffy, but the young adult took pride in knowing that his boyfriend had very sensitive ears.

#11 - Name - The name was said so quietly that Ace almost didn't hear it but as soon as the name clicked in his mind his legs were moving and he was dragging the frightened, amnesiac Luffy away from the dark area and reassuring him that he would be okay in an equally quiet whisper.

#12 - Sensual - Their hands moved slowly, exploring every inch of the others body, attentive to what would make the other feel the best.

#13 - Death - The freckled God of Death gulps shakily when he sees that the next soul he is to lead into the afterlife is the young, happy, but tired teen with a big smile and even bigger dreams he had watched and interacted with for the past few months; the one who had a terminal illness and got Ace's heart beating in ways the shinigami didn't know were possible anymore.

#14 - Sex - Luffy growls and rolls his hips as he rides Ace, enjoying every sound he can extract from the stubborn man's lips.

#15 - Touch - The trail Ace's fingers leave on Luffy's skin feel like fire and the younger wonders if it has anything to do with Ace's devil fruit.

#16 - Weakness - The words died in Ace's throat and the older felt his resolve shatter into a million little pieces when Luffy's big blue puppy dog eyes met his.

#17 - Tears - Ace let his relieved tears fall as he clutches his younger brother as close as possible, the reality of having almost lost Luffy overwhelming.

#18 - Speed - Sometimes Ace would remember that Luffy's legs were shorter than his and slowed down a bit so he could still hold Luffy's hand on the way to school.

#19 - Wind - Luffy groaned sadly as the wind blew away the leaf pile he had been building, but decided that it was perfectly fine because the moment he started rebuilding it, Ace came out from his house and crossed the street to help his younger neighbor play in the brown and orange leaves.

#20 - Freedom - Ace holds Luffy's smaller hand in his own with Sabo at his side as their ship finally raises anchor and the endless freedom of the sea calls for the three restless souls.

#21 - Life - No regrets, they had promised and even if he wasn't living anymore, Ace truly had no more regrets as he watched his younger brother claim the One Piece and officially become Pirate King.

#22 - Jealousy - "I'm not...jealous of Hammock; she just needs to learn that you're never going to marry her and you're with me before I rearrange her face."

#23 - Hands - Luffy held Ace's clasped hands to his forehead tightly, before he takes one of the hands and kisses the palm, silently telling his soulmate to be safe.

#24 - Taste - Luffy left a unique taste on Ace's tongue that made the man high.

#25 - Devotion - The loyalty and utter dedication and devotion that shined in Luffy's eyes left Ace feeling weak in the knees.

#26 - Forever - "Silly Ace, I'll love you forever and ever and you can't change that!" Luffy had exclaimed years and years ago but meant it even still.

#27 - Blood - Luffy laughed with a pained wheeze and brought his bloody fingers to Ace's freckled cheek, his eyes gradually getting farther away as he whispers in a broken voice; "Forever and ever... Don't forget that, Ace."

#28 - Sickness - "I just wanted to kiss you, I didn't know you would get sick!"

#29 - Melody - Ace played the melody on his guitar expertly, feeling pleased when Luffy started singing along.

#30 - Star - Luffy groans in pain as he rolls onto his back next to Ace, grasping the others limp hand as tight as his weak body can as the stars shine above, silently wishing the two young men a safe journey into the unknown.

#31 - Home - Luffy feels comforted in Ace's strong arms, knowing that even in the most dangerous place, with Ace he was at home.

#32 - Confusion - The confused expression on Luffy's face only deepened when his brother stuttered and his face turned bright red.

#33 - Fear - Luffy's greatest fear was being alone, but because of Ace, he wasn't alone anymore.

#34 - Lightning/Thunder - No matter his age, if there was a thunderstorm during the night, Ace never doubted that he would wake up with Luffy in his bed the next morning.

#35 - Bonds - The first night without Ace was hard for Luffy, but he knew that no matter how far Ace was, they would always meet again and that nothing could tarnish their bond.

#36 - Market - "Luffy, I sent you to get a few things... Ace wasn't on the list."

#37 - Technology - Rogue sent Roger an amused look the moment she heard her son enter the house with a happy laugh and a playful scold to his boyfriend over the phone.

#38 - Gift - "Hm... You don't have to give ne anything... You're more than enough, Lu."

#39 - Smile - Luffy decided he loved seeing Ace smile the moment he caught the older boy talking to another boy about pirates; he also decided then that he wanted to see Ace smile even more.

#40 - Innocence - Ace glared viciously at the people with wandering eyes, pulling his innocence and adorable boyfriend closer.

#41 - Completion - A joyous sound escaped Luffy's lips and he tossed his controller to the side before he threw his arms around his brother's neck as the two beat the last impossible level that was keeping them from victory.

#42 - Clouds - "Luffy, every cloud looks like meat to you."

#43 - Sky - The sky cried and soaked the two throughly, but Ace and Luffy didn't bother moving, too focused on finally being together again, their lips connected.

#44 - Heaven - The angel's lips curved sweetly as he took Ace's hand in his own and Ace still had trouble believing that someone like his angelic little brother was even possible.

#45 - Hell - Ace couldn't feel anything but pure fear the moment he was handed the paper that announced that his little brother was in Impel Down.

#46 - Sun - The sun was warm on their skin as they laid in their skin, holding hands.

#47 - Moon - The day turned turned colder when the moon came up, Luffy and Ace curled up in one another to avoid the cold.

#48 - Waves - Luffy squeals and grabs onto Ace's shoulder as the older picks him up with ease, running the two further into the ocean.

#49 - Hair - Tinier calloused hands tangle in Ace's dark hair when the freckled male sucks and bites on Luffy's sensitive neck that was slowly becoming covered in hickies.

#50 - Supernova - When he heard about the Eleven Supernovas and saw his brother and his first mate amongst other faces, Ace grinned and hoped the other 9 knew what they were in for.
