The demon at Marineford Chapter 5 - The voice of all things, an one piece fanfic | FanFiction
However, Shanks as a mini boss, or on the final stage, and Buggy arriving with Monkey D. Luffy Davy Back Fight: Combat is useful if you get the Giants version or Shanks version of the final stage. He can mission faster due to his cooldown. Former Cabin Boy of the Pirate King, Roger - He was known to be a part of Roger's Crew with Buggy, although this doesn't mean much. May 13, Shanks and Buggy looked back to when they were apprentices on the The man quickly retaliated and grabbed the girl but got slapped in the.
I'm not as stupid as you seem to think. In the future, what if we expect you to follow an order and you don't, and a crew-mate dies because of it? Did you ever think about that, Shanks? He hadn't thought that far. The thought that one of his crew-mates could die just because he had defied orders For some reason, the clown's face flashed through his mind. I was just having fun It wasn't like we were in a battle or anything.
People die just as much on good days as they do on bad days. Please remember that," Rayleigh said with a grim smile. The red-haired boy looked down at his feet, the straw-hat shielding his eyes from Rayleigh. He could see the boy tremble. But you're not to set foot on this island anymore, okay? That's your punishment for failing the test. You're a kid, you're supposed to screw up so you can learn to be a better adult.
As he did, the small smile he was wearing slipped off and he sighed. He could feel the weight of failure on his shoulders and knew that the punishment he had received was fair. Guilt wasn't fun at all. His gaze went towards the shore where the lights was still going strong and probably would for the rest of the night.
The city that never sleeps. That was Carnibal Town. He suddenly wondered where the boy he had meet was right now. Was he sleeping somewhere safe? Was he out there among the night-crawlers? He shook his head in annoyance. Why do I keep thinking about him? I should be more concerned about how to make up for my screw-up today. He figured that a good night's sleep would clear his mind of the other boy. Howard, a big broad-shouldered blonde man in his twenties, looked confused.
When he saw none, he sighed and muttered to himself, "Damn it Shanks, I thought that you knew better after yesterday. Howard, Bane, Mikken, Sleigh — I want the four of you to go into town and look for the brat. If you find him, get him back to the ship immediately, I don't care if you have to carry him. The ship had barely left their sight when Bane turned towards his shipmates.
Normally anyone being subjected to Bane's glare would have cowered away, but Mikken, who answered his glare with a smirk and a challenging glint in his eyes, had known Bane all his life and knew how to handle him. With his short build, fair complexion and blonde hair, Mikken looked the complete opposite of Bane.
No one would ever guess that they shared the same parents. Every time the captain or Rayleigh-san gives us orders to take care of Shanks or include him in our past-time, you always grumble like an old man and I'm sick of it," Mikken answered with no hesitation. Shanks is pulling his weight as much as can be expected from an eleven-year-old and you know that the captain wouldn't have taken him under his wing if the kid didn't have potential.
You're drawing attention to us. Before Howard could repeat himself, Sleigh stepped forward, raised both his hands and slapped the two brothers on their heads. Bane, no matter what your personal opinion is, Rayleigh ordered us to find the kid, so that's exactly what we're gonna do.
Unless you want to explain to Rayleigh why you can't follow a simple order? Sleigh was a little shorter than Bane and thirty years older, but he was the most experienced sailor in the crew seeing as he had been traveling on the seas since he was a little boy.
Having only lost his right eye and ear during his years traveling on the Grand Line, the rest of the crew, even Rayleigh and Captain Roger, held a great deal of respect for the old man.
Whenever he talked, you listened. Bane turned with a huff and continued walking down the street. Mikken flashed an apologetic grin to Sleigh and hurried after his brother. Sleigh was about to go after them when Howard spoke up behind him. Shanks isn't an idiot. He most have known how furious Rayleigh would be if he sneaked out, especially after yesterday. And it's not like he's the kind of person to make people angry deliberately, he hates it when people are mad at him.
So why did he sneak out in the first place? We'll never find the kid if we stand around talking all day. I thought that I had gotten through to him yesterday, I thought that he understood the importance of following orders, of accepting punishment for doing the wrong thing! But that obviously went right over his head! He could already feel a migraine creeping up behind his eyes.
Even now, I can't sense him no matter how much I try! I can't even tell if he's on the island or not! I've known about it since the brat got off the ship! If you can sense him, why can't I? About an hour ago it stabilized and he sneaked off the ship. It seems he made a decision about something. You say that you can sense him because of our difference in power of our Hakis, but that shouldn't make any difference.
He's just a kid. His Haki is shielding him. He was ostracized from his village because he was making people faint and breaking stuff without touching them whenever he became upset, which had happened a lot ever since his mother died. We both knew what that meant even though the villagers didn't. It meant that Shanks possesses the Conqueror's Haki. He knew all this.
Both he and Roger had been shocked to find a kid with such raw potential and had decided to take him with them before the Navy found out about him. He had been happy to go with them, but he would not let neither Roger nor Rayleigh train him to control his Haki, much to their frustration. With the villagers treating him like he was a monster, Shanks had become afraid of his own power. But, and here Rayleigh smiled in remembrance, the boy had grown on them both, especially Roger, who had given Shanks the straw-hat that he had been wearing for as long as Rayleigh had known him.
They had decided to give him time to come to terms with his powers and since their pirate crew was a pretty strong-willed bunch, the few times Shanks lost his temper didn't result in anyone fainting.
Shanks' Haki had remained simmering under the surface. His Haki must have reacted to that and is now shielding him from unwanted eyes. I know I said I can sense him, but it's only barely. It's strong enough to act without his say so and the Conqueror's Haki overwhelms the will of other beings, so if Shanks does not want to be found, his Haki will make sure that he's not.
We can't put it off any longer. What exactly is the kid doing that he wouldn't want anyone to find out? Did he want to take another look at the island? So that's how it is. Doesn't feel that way. Someone must be talking about me.
Probably Alfredo ranting about how flashily jealous he is of my skills! Buggy had never cared about making any friends among the other boys working for Fabioli, but he and Alfredo had been downright antagonistic towards each other ever since Buggy joined the Fabioli group. Alfredo had been the top dog of the bunch and Fabioli's favorite, but when Buggy arrived with his thieving skills, street-smarts and overall charisma, that honor had been swiftly bestowed on him, much to Alfredo chagrin.
I just want that creepy bastard off my back. A few more years and I can say goodbye to this crappy island. By taking a part of his loot to the side each week but never enough that it would make Fabioli suspicious of him he had slowly but surely gathered a larger sum of Belis and hidden it under the floors in an abandoned house in the northern district.
He knew what he was doing was dangerous, since Fabiolio would kill anyone holding out on him, but Buggy also knew that if he was ever to be free from the man, then he would need money to buy a ship.
And then he would become a pirate and steal money from all the rich people and never be hungry and never take orders from anyone again! And he would do this all by himself. He didn't want anyone else's help, because people always wanted something in return, and he would never fall in that trap again. The strong decides the fate of the weak. So be strong, Buggy. Strong enough that you never have to depend on anyone's mercy. I thought you loved me! Come here, let me buy you something.
I'll give you a house to live in, bed to sleep in and food on the table everyday. All you need to do is to pay me a certain amount of money once a week. Now doesn't that sound like a good deal? His mother had been weak. Buggy had been weak. But he was getting stronger and continue getting stronger, by himself. He would never put his trust in another human being again.
He shook his head again; he didn't have time for this. Yesterday's incident with the pirates had resulted in him not getting as much money for his own treasure horde as he would have liked, so this week he had to get a move on if he wanted to make progress. Thinking about the pirates automatically made him think of the redhead he had been fighting. How dare he say that about my nose?
In that moment he saw a group of tourists that he immediately zoomed in on. It was better to rob groups than it was to rob people one by one. They were easier since they were more relaxed and if you managed to steal more than one wallet, it was more profitable as well.
I just need to get up to them, get their wallets and walk past them. Won't be a problem with those flashy bags. Jeez, they're practically begging for someone to rob them. Don't mind me, I'm just a clown taking a walk.
The tourist turned to him with a sneer and told him to watch where he was going. Knowing that his chance to rob them was gone, he apologized and backed away. When the group had left, he turned around and glared coldly at the person who had disturbed him in his work.
He knew who it was, of course. Not like he could have forgotten THAT voice in just one day. You're a pirate, you must steal things all the time. My name is Shanks, by the way, not brat. What do you want? Go bug someone else if you want to take a beating. Of course, if what you said was just you bragging and you're really nothing but a tomato-nosed chicken, then I don't blame you if you run away. His face was red and he had murder in his eyes.
How a coward like you can even dream of becoming a pirate is beyond insulting to us real pirates! Is that true, Alfredo? Gather all the boys in the storage.
You have two hours. Fabioli sighed irritably and got up from his seat. He went over to a cabinett and started pouring a glas of whisky. As he swiped down the burning liquid, he saw a boy die a thousand times in his mind's eye, each one more gruesome than the others.
Take me for a fool, will you? But don't hurt him just yet. I need him alive and well to make an example of what happens when trash tries to cheat me. They were both covered in bruises, Buggy's left eye was starting to swell and blood was running down Shanks' nose.
Around them a crowd had gathered, some cheering them on, some simply looking on in horror. Shanks didn't answer him. He was just staring at him. Suddenly his shoulders started to shake and his gasps were replaced by snickering.
Then, while Buggy was staring at him like he was insane, Shanks threw his head back and started laughing. Buggy could not stand it. He was looking at Buggy like he was made out of gold. I mean, I suspected it yesterday, but now I'm sure! You're not afraid of me in the least are you?!Shanks And Buggy In Marineford ( Funny And Epic Moment ) ! One Piece - ENG SUB
Even when I got angry at you and fought you and everything! Why the hell would I be afraid of you, you crazy bastard?! They had just been beating the shit out of each other and now the redhead was spouting all kinds of nonsense. Shanks continued to blabber, completely ignoring what Buggy had said. I mean, no one in the crew ever passes out, but I've never met anyone in my age who didn't whenever I got angry! The two boys looked down and saw a canister. Buggy succumbed first with a curse on his lips and fell headlong on the ground before falling asleep.
Shanks managed to hold on a little longer and was still aware when his feet went out under him and he fell to the ground. Around them people were screaming, running or falling down, but soon enough silence enveloped the two young fighters.
Two figures with masks stepped out from the smoke and stood above them. The voices turned to mumbles and blackness crept over his eyes. He rose from his chair. Tell Howard and the others to met up with us in town. They had woken up about five minutes ago, and while Shanks looked around himself with confusion Buggy knew exactly where they were.
They were at the warehouse he and other boys in the Fabioli group lived in. He could see silhouettes on the staircase, but it was too dark to see exactly who they were. On the other hand he could clearly see Fabioli's bodyguards, Diego and Enrico, standing in front of them in their black suits.
He tried to move his hands and feet, but it was useless. Both he and Shanks had their feet chained together and their hands were bound behind their backs. He glowered at the bodyguards. Why did you chain me up? I haven't done anything! They are the bodyguards of the guy I work for, Mr Fabioli. Why was he tied up like this, and more importantly, why on earth had they taken Shanks as well?
He didn't have time to think about these questions however, as the door to the ware house opened and Fabioli went through the opening. Immediatly his eyes zoomed in on Buggy, and the clown gulped as he saw the glower in those green orbs. Fabioli was definitely not happy. I trust that the brat is secure. We have him in chains, as you ordered. We decided to take him with us in case he was involved. I've been so careful But it would make sense Fabioli sneered down at him with contempt.
After everything I've done for you, this is how you repay me? I thought you were smarter than that. What do think you're doing?! That's my future nakama you're kicking!
What are you talking about, brat? Buggy is my property, I can do whatever I want to him. My name is Shanks. I'm part of the Roger Pirates. My captain is the greatest man to ever sail the seas — Gol D.
And what do you want with my Buggy? He's gonna be my nakama.
That brat is the most illoyal, backstabbing trash you will ever have the misfortune to meet. He would do anything for gold. That's what I liked about him in the first place. It is because of that oversight that he's going to die, right here and right now.

But first-" He turned Buggy with his foot so that the clown was lying on his back before placing it on Buggy's ribs. He looked down and smiled wildly. Your screams, your tears and you pleading to die will make sure that none of the other brats will ever even think about cheating me.
This is nothing more than you deserve, you thieving little punk. And after I'm done with you, I'm gonna deal with the little pirate. It doesn't seem like you and he were collaborating, but-" He huffed in disgust. Those unrefined ruffians are bad for business. You just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. He was going to die. He now knew that somehow Fabioli had managed to find out about the money he had been hording.
But how the hell did he find out?! Fabioli smirked down at him and Buggy realized that he had said the last sentence out loud. I told the other boys to pay me visit if you ever did something suspicious and, lo and behold, this morning I had a visit from Alfredo, telling me that you always went to the same abandoned house in the northern district the day after the payment. He followed you with Dingo and some of my men, and after turning the house upside-down, they found the money hidden under the floors.
But nowhere near crafty enough to fool me. Buggy accidentally bit his tongue and could now taste blood in his mouth. In the background he could hear the other boys cheering Fabioli on, the loudest of them being Alfredo. As soon as you're no use to him he's gonna kill you too Oh god, it hurts He coughed and greedily sucked in air in his lungs before painfully rolling onto his side. He could see Diego and Enrico lying on the ground, and Shanks slowly crawling towards him. Are you hurt bad?
Long story short, I sometimes make people faint just by being mad at them. I'm not exactly sure how it works, and honestly I'm not really interested to know. He was really whaling on you. Because you're gonna be my nakama!
Even if we managed to live through this, even if your crew-mates won't kill me for dragging one of their crew-mates into a mess like this, I wouldn't want to be your nakama. I don't need nakama! I won't trust anyone besides myself! He closed his eyes and tried to make his racing heart calm down. They won't hurt you, either. I trust them with my life, and that means you can too. As if I could trust the word of a flashy idiot like you.
Why did they have to chain us? That was Fabioli's voice.

He couldn't be waking up already, could he? But it was just his luck, really, that not only Fabioli but Enrico and Diego had started to stir. He desperately wriggled his hand, trying to get it out of the chains. Make them faint again! It just happens sometimes when I get upset or angry.
My nakama are gonna be here any moment now, and he's not hurting you anymore. I have no reason to be upset! You'll get what I mean when you're part of the crew! Fabioli was holding a smoking pistol aimed towards the roof, gnashing his teeth in fury. Enrico, Diego, get them on their feet. But it seems that it would be better to get rid of you first, so you don't pull that shit again. All gazes snapped towards the opened doorway.
Loud, and to Shanks familiar, voices could be heard from outside. I felt like making an entrance. You're sounding like an old man again. Fabioli and his goons were staring in disbelief, Buggy's chin was basically on the floor, and Shanks Well, Shanks wasn't surprised at all.
Mikken took a look around and scoffed, twiddling with a knife in his left hand. This won't even be a challenge. Don't get ahead of yourself.
Apprentices! Shanks and Buggy!
He then shifted his focus on his captain. If Buggy had thought him impressive and scary the day before, it was nothing in comparison to how terrifying the man standing before them was now. Apparently he was not the only one who thought so, as he could feel Diego's hand shaking and sweating around his neck. He could also see that the pistol Fabioli was holding had started to wobble.
Shanks shook his head. But Buggy got hurt. Ah, the gutsy kid from before. Whenever Buggy would think back on this moment, he would always remember the three things that happened simultaneously. The sight of Fabioli falling, the feeling of something invisible moving around him and the sound of a thousand whispers. Everything seemed to move in slow motion Hey Captain, can we just grab the kid and go? I'm getting sick of this town. We're getting out of here.
For two years he had been slaving under Fabioli. During those years he had seen the man cut throats, shot people in the head and bury people alive.
Men, women and children. The man had been the ultimate symbol of cruelty, misery and imprisonment for Buggy.
But now, that same tormentor was lying passed out on the floor with froth coming out of his mouth. In his terror all he could focus on was that the pirate standing before him was strong. Strong enough that you don't have to depend on anyone's mercy. Looks like I was too weak again All he could do was wait for his verdict. Roger looked at the kid lying before him. With the exception for his blue hair and round red nose, he looked like a perfectly normal eleven-year-old.
But since the day before there had been something nagging Roger about this kid, something that apparently Shanks had picked up on and had decided to investigate on his own. Now Roger could see why. When he had used his Conqueror's Haki he had meant for it to knock out all but Shanks, and yet the blue-haired kid was still conscious.
It was like the Haki hadn't even touched him. Roger sat himself before Buggy, raised up his arm and covered it Armament Haki before slowly moving down towards the boy's head. Calm and level-headed at virtually all times, he was the individual to break up arguments and disputes aboard the "Oro Jackson", as first mate and the right-hand man to Gol D.
Rayleigh knows the "True History" of the world from his time with Roger. However, he has also stated that, as a pirate crew lacking the archaeological knowledge of scholars of Ohara's caliber, they could have interpreted that information differently than the Ohara scholars. This is shown when he was within a matter of moments easily able to deduce what had happened after ending up at the slave auction stage on the Sabaody Archipelago.
Mechanics Edit Rayleigh is an expert in the coating business, as he performs such operations for various pirate ships heading down to Fish-Man Island, as well as understanding the mechanics of the deep-sea currents. Rayleigh is also highly knowledgeable in locksmithing, able to remove the slave collars that was placed on him and the giant he was enslaved with without using any keys at all.
He also demonstrated being able to remove Camie's exploding collar without the keys, albeit in a more dangerous method as it does not stop the collar from exploding. Culinary Expertise Rayleigh is a highly skilled chef as according to Luffy. The stew Rayleigh prepared for dinner smelled very delicious. Physical Abilities Edit Rayleigh has tremendous physical strength despite his elderly age. He is powerful enough to kill several Sea Kings with his bare hands while swimming in the Calm Belt.
In the anime, he could throw bullets with extreme force and accuracy, able to destroy cannon balls fired at him. Rayleigh has shown to be extremely fast with extraordinary reflexes. When removing Camie's exploding collar, he patiently calculated the time when the collar released itself and quickly tossed it away before it detonated. Though tarnished by age, Rayleigh still has an enormous amount of stamina, as he was able to swim to Amazon Lily from another ocean and was also still able to kill a number of Sea Kings despite swimming such a long distance.
Swordsmanship Edit Rayleigh is a tremendously powerful and skilled swordsman, though he claims to have degraded in skill somewhat from his younger and healthier days.
