A/N: Okay... I will have to say this now, never expect Coil to under go a Heel Face Turn... If you haven't been paying attention to recent One Piece... yeah... I could be wrong, but it looks like an extremely unlikely Heel Face turn is on the way (well Heel Face Turn as best, Friendly Enemy at worst).
Anyways, the member of the Apple Family introduced in this chapter is canon but thanks to the fact that he won't ever have a defined personality I chose him as the Devil's Reincarnation... I did consider for a time making Braeburn the one... but I felt he was too cheerful for who I had in mind... Anyways enjoy the chapter!
Chapter 22: Smoking Apples
Prince Blueblood was registering Cheerilee. Of it was rather easy, almost everyone in the pirate world knew about Vice Admiral Tsuru.
Prince Blueblood sighed.
"Is anything wrong?" asked Cheerilee.
"No… not at all." Said Prince Blueblood.
"You're lying." Said Cheerilee.
Prince Blueblood sighed, he looked at Cheerilee, he knew she wasn't going to help them, but he knew the Devil's Alliance was growing, but they need more allies… they had a lot there.
There was one, the one wasn't a member of the Fruit Brigade, he was just a registered Devil Fruit user… but he did have a small stake in it.
When everything was done with Cheerilee he decided to ask Applejack for advice. Applejack was apple bucking as usual.
"Hey Blueblood, what do you need?" asked Applejack.
"I need your advice with something." Said Prince Blueblood.
"So is this about you and Soarin'?" asked Applejack, "Or is that Rarity has started teams amongst those in the know and started teams?"
"No… of course not that…" said Prince Blueblood, "Wait? What?"
"Uh…" said Applejack.
"Seriously!" said Lily, "I might not know what's the history between them, but I'm part of Team Blueblood."
"Are you kidding me!" said Daisy, "Soarin' cares about Pinkie in this life, not because of the past life."
Rose on the other hand faced hoof. This was just getting ridiculous…
"Hey! What are you talking about?" asked Pinkie suddenly showing up.
"Nothing! Nothing at all!" said Daisy.
"That's right nothing…" said Lily.
"Okay then." Said Pinkie who left.
"You got lucky…" muttered Rose.
Back on Sweet Apple Acres.
"So if it's not about Pinkie, what do want to talk about?" asked Applejack.
"I was thinking about asking your cousin if he wants to get involved." Said Prince Blueblood.
Applejack's eyes winded.
"I wanted to see your reaction." Said Prince Blueblood, "I know your cousin just wants a new life… it's going to be his choice in the end, but… I want you opinion."
Applejack didn't know how to respond, she knew her cousin briefly considered join the Fruit Brigade, but in the end decided not to.
"Well if you think it is a good idea…" said Applejack, "But why not an undercover member of the Fruit Brigade?"
"I think we both know the answer to that." Said Prince Blueblood.
Applejack sighed as she remembered a conversation with Sanji.
Applejack was taking a break with Sanji and they were sampling each other recipes.
"So wait, you knew about Devil's Reincarnation even before this al happened?" asked Sanji.
Applejack nodded, "The apple family is so tightly knit that they stand by their kin no matter what! Even if they were pirates or marines in their past lives."
"So who's the devil reincarnation?" asked Sanji.
"One of my cousins…" said applejack.
"Do you know anything about his past life?" asked Sanji.
Applejack nodded and told him the name of her cousin's past life…
"You knew him, didn't you?" asked Applejack.
"I did." answered Sanji who was honestly surprised.
"I honestly don't know anything about his past life other than the name and his powers." Sid Applejack.
"And he wants to be a famer?" asked Sanji, "Never expected that…"
Applejack stared at Sanji wondering what the meant but shrugged it off.
(End of Flashback)
"Many ponies I tell about your cousin are shocked he wants to live the life of a farmer…" said Prince Blueblood.
"That's exactly how Sanji reacted." Said Applejack.
"If he says no I'll respect his wishes… I have a back-up in the Fruit Brigade who not only is skilled in under cover work but would have a legitimate reason for staying in Ponyville." Said Prince Blueblood.
"I have no objection to it." Said Applejack.
"Thank you." Said Prince Blueblood.
Prince Blueblood left to send the letter to Applejack's cousin.
Meanwhile at the Devil's Alliance HQ… they were considering idea for what to do.
Due to the fact that they were waiting until everyone had returned until they went after Fluttershy again that they decided to try to come up with distraction plans…
Thunder Cloud came up with one, however once again he decided to sit on it due to the fact that he didn't' wants it so soon after the whole school thing…
It made them suspect that plan was somehow worse than the school plan…
That was when Thunder Cloud announced to everyone.
"Blueblood is planning to bring someone in." said Thunder Cloud.
"Who?" asked Steel.
"I don't know yet, the pony is either a member of the fruit brigade or member of the apple family." Said Thunder Cloud.
"So wait a couple more days?" asked Hollow Air.
"That's right." Said Thunder Cloud.
Two days later, Prince Blueblood woke up with a crash. He went to find that Derpy just crashed into the mailbox.
"Are you okay?" asked Prince Blueblood.
"I'm a-okay!" said Derpy getting back up, "And you got a letter Prince Blueblood."
"Thank you." He said.
He opened the letter and his eyes winded.
"That was much aster than I anticipated." Said Prince Blueblood.
At the same time at Sweet Apple Acres, Applejack got the mail and found a letter from Delicious Ranch, she read it and was surprised.
"I better tell Granny." She sighed.
Applejack went into the house and explain to her grandmother that they're cousin was going to stay with them for a while.
"Is this about that thing with Fluttershy?" asked Granny Smith.
"Yes…" answered Applejack.
"I was thinking of asking to see if he would come." Said Granny, "That filly need protecting"
Applejack smiled, she should have known that her grandmother would feel that way.
"When will he be here?" asked Granny Smith.
"This afternoon." Answered Applejack.
Thunder Cloud heard this all.
"So… they did get a new devil's Reincarnation on their side after all." Thought Thunder Cloud.
That afternoon, Prince Blueblood and Applejack waited at the train station.
"So did you have to distract Pinkie?" asked Applejack.
"No… actually she's planning a birthday party today." Said Prince Blueblood.
Applejack breathed a sigh of relief.
"You heard stories about your cousin's past life, didn't you?" asked Prince Blueblood.
"I don't think it's a good idea to introduce him top Pinkie yet." Said Applejack.
"I agree…" sighed Prince Blueblood.
That was when the train arrived, when it did a brown stallion with three golden apples walked over to Applejack and Prince Blueblood.
"It's been a while." Said the stallion to Applejack.
"It has." Said Applejack hugging her cousin.
"It's good to see you again." Said Prince Blueblood, "Golden Delicious."
"Yeah…" mumbled the stallion Golden Delicious.
They got Golden Delicious bags and started walking to Sweet Apple Acres.
"There's a reason why I'm here to welcome you." Said Prince Blueblood.
"It's to inform me what other Devil Reinsertions are in town, right?" asked Golden Delicious.
"Yeah…" answered Applejack.
"Let me guess one of them is Luffy's reincarnation?" asked Golden Delicious.
"That's right." Said Applejack.
"I don't care, as long as he has most of Luffy's good traits from his past life." Said Golden Delicious.
"She does." Said Prince Blueblood and mumbled, "And a lot of his bad traits as well…"
Golden Delicious sighed… then put together the pieces, "It's that mare Pinkie Pie, isn't it? The ones your friends with."
"Impressive." Said Prince Blueblood.
Meanwhile at the Devil's Alliance HQ, Full Plate was eating broken glass.
"Really? Broken glass? Asked Aurora
"It was my idea." Said Thunder Cloud, "He and Steel are going to size up the new recruit."
"I see…" said Aurora.
"You should go soon…" said Thunder Cloud, "Pinkie D. Pie is busy with a birthday party…"
Steel and Full Plate nodded and left.
Not knowing the main reason why Prince Blueblood chose Golden Delicious.
Sometime later, the three had yet to arrive at Sweet Apple Acres.
"So Red asked his mare friend to take over my job." Said Golden Delicious, "But I don't know, she's not the farming type."
That was when Full Plate and Steel arrived.
"So you're the one they called here." Said Steel.
"That's right." Said Golden Delicious.
"Let's see what you can do." Said Full Plate.
Full Plate's body began to erupt with glass while Steel blades came out of Steel's legs.
"Daz Bone's reincarnation, right?" asked Golden Delicious.
"That's right." Said Steel.
"And I'm Kind Wapol's reincarnation." Bragged Full Plate.
"So you were both Paramecia…" said Golden Delicious, "I'll handle them."
"I wouldn't have expected anything less" said Prince Blueblood.
Both of them ran towards Golden Delicious.
However when they struck, his skin turned into smoke.
"What" asked Full Plate.
"Smoker?" he asked.
"I only inherited certain traits… but yes, I am his reincarnation." Said Golden Delicious.
At the Devil's Alliance HQ…
"Aurora… do you know who Smoker is?" asked Thunder Cloud.
Aurora stared at Thunder Cloud.
"They called in his resignation?" asked Aurora, "You have got to be freaking kidding me!"
The others there sighed heavily… while Thunder Cloud was confused, "I guess he's powerful… right?"
"Gee… you think…" muttered Aurora.
"If the other two were here this wouldn't have happened…" muttered Shadow Streak.
"I know…" muttered Aurora.
Back in Ponyville, Golden Delicious turned both his hooves into smoke and tossed them away into the Everfree forest.
Applejack stared at her cousin in shock.
"Smoker the White hunter… one of most powerful Marines from our past lives…" said Prince Blueblood, "Of all people to be reborn into the Apple Family, it was him…"
"So what were you secretly a Devil's Reincarnation?" asked Golden Delicious.
"Yes… it's a long story…" said Prince Blueblood.
As they continued on their way Prince Blueblood told him about Lady Bluebell…
"Wait in this life you're an Okama?" asked Golden Delicious.
"I am not an Okama." mumbled Prince Blueblood.
Golden Delicious looked at Applejack.
"Tell me, how have you been taking it…" said Golden Delicious.
"What do you mean?" asked Applejack.
"Well one of your friends is a target, and another is the reincarnation of a rubber lunatic… how have you been able to handle yourself?" asked Golden Delicious.
"Well…" said Applejack as they approached the gates of Sweet Apple Acres.
Meanwhile at the Devil's Alliance HQ, Full Plate and Steel returned.
"Hey… so…" said Thunder Cloud.
"We're listen to your orders… but don't expect us to be happy about them." Muttered Steel.
"How was I supposed to know he was a Logia…" muttered Thunder Cloud.
Back at sweet Apple Acres, Applejack finished the explanation when they got to the house, Golden Delicious' eye was twitching.
"Dream Training with him?" asked Golden Delicious.
"Yeah…" answered Applejack.
"Well this is where I part ways." Said Prince Blueblood he grabbed Golden Delicious a folder, "In here are notes about all known members of the Devil's Alliance. As well as notes about all Devil's Reincarnations in Ponyville in Ponyville."
Prince Blueblood left…
Golden Delicious settled in, having a rather awkward conversation with Big Macintosh, saying hello to his aunt and showing off some of his powers to Apple Bloom.
That night he read about the Devil's Reincarnations who either staying because of the Devil's Alliance or lived there prior.
He was surprised about Spitfire and Twilight… as well to find that three of the four possible reincarnations of the Straw Hats there… though he did wonder if that skeleton was able to be reincarnated.
That night… in a house somewhere in Trottingham, Sandy and Coil knocked on the door.
That was when a rather disheveled unicorn stallion opened the door. He wore socks on his forelegs for some reason and had a target for a cutie mark.
"What do you want?" asked the unicorn.
"We were wondering if you were the mad Stalker?" asked Sandy.
"Don't you dare call me that!" yelled the unicorn.
"All right! All right take it easy…" said Sandy.
"Can we come in?" asked Coil.
"Fine…" muttered the pony known only as the mad stalker.
"So word is that you've been sending various famous women threatening letters demanding that they marry you." Said Sandy, "Though mostly Princess Mi Amore Cadenza… and from what I heard you still send her letters demanding her to divorce her husband…"
"Shut up…" muttered the mad stalker.
"Or what? You're going to finally let go of go and start attacking me" asked Sandy, "The Mark Mark abilities…"
"How do you know about my abilities?" asked the mad Stalker.
"Because we're part of a group called the Devil's Alliance." Said Sandy, "If you want… you can take any wife you want if you join us… even a princess."
"Seriously?" asked Coil.
"Fine…I agree." Said the mad stalker.
"You have to feel a little dirty." Whispered Coil.
"You are aware that this guy is nuts and stalked a little girl for 10 years in a past life… and that he notorious for doing the same in this one… right?" explained Sandy.
"Ewww…" said Coil, "Why him?"
"By the way, there's another thing you enjoy, the reincarnation of Luffy is among our enemies." Explained Sandy.
The mad stalker grinned… it was more incentive.
After all, Luffy was one of the reasons why his past life lost the love of his life…
For he was the reincarnation of Vander Decken IX… Yeah… whoever was going to be his reincarnation was messed up…
