One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - Cocoon - You know what I kind of never really expected to see? Scanslated Zoro/Nami doujinshi. But I was really curious to read it, because I like this pairing a lot and I liked the tone of the doujinshi, the way the author wrote them. It was kind of suprisingly short, probably only a dozen pages or so, and there were only a handful of lines of dialogue (and Zoro was silent the entire time, actually) but the art was decent and it's not like Zoro's a talkative guy anyway. It was just an interesting little thing to read if you like the pairing. (Zoro/Nami, probably a PG13 level or so.)


One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - Red Red Wine - This is a short little doujinshi and it's actually more gen than anything, because nobody's making out or even talking about their feelings, it's just Zoro being wounded and resting, so Sanji goes to make him eat, and it goes about as well as you'd expect it to go. The art style is very similar to Oda's, if not perfect, so it really kind of read like a little slice right out of the manga, right down to some really solid characterizations. Except, you know. More ZoSan-friendly. XD (Zoro/Sanji, but it could have been totally gen, too.)


One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - Hito de Nashi no - [Note: This post is locked, but the comm is freely joinable. Hit up the SaveFile link for all the downloads.] This doujinshi, in contrast to a lot of the other ones I've been reading lately, has a lot of unused white space, some pages hardly have more than a few drawings on them at all. But this artist knows how to use them, how to make it so that it creates a light and airy effect (which contrasts against the heavier emotions Nami is feeling, but somehow it works well anyway!) that's really, really pretty. It helps that her style works well with a lot of unused space, especially because some of her close-ups of Nami are just gorgeous. There's a surprising amount of detail here, some of the drawings of Nami are beautiful enough that I would really kind of love to see this doujinshika get her own manga. *__* As for the plot, it's pretty simple, Nami wandering across Luffy sleeping on the deck after the Alabasta fight and all her emotions start coming up to the surface, which don't really have a lot of resolution to them, but it wasn't meant to. I love that it could almost be gen, because I just love these two characters' relationship in all ways. (Maybe Luffy/Nami, maybe gen.)


One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - Little Cloud (kiss hands) - [Note: This post is locked, but the comm is freely joinable. Hit up the SaveFile link for all the downloads.] Another short one that's just a little over ten pages long and really could be gen more than a pairing, but the focus is on the Luffy/Nami interaction, so fans of the pairing will probably enjoy it, too. And it's a really cute little thing, Nami worried that she was just waiting around to be saved, but Luffy points out that they wouldn't have fought with her if she weren't fighting herself. It's sweet and has a few moments of potential implications for a pairing, but it's not really about that and it's just a light, fun, fluffy little read that made me melt into fangirl goo just a little bit. Because I'm a sap, I know. Shut up. (Maybe Luffy/Nami. maybe gen.)


One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - Sanji Yoji Goji - Holy crap, is that a doujinshi by Sanami Matoh?? I was actually really impressed with it, though! Of course the details and overall discipline of the series was really strong, as to be expected, but what really impressed me was how much it looked like the canon style rather than her usual style, given that pretty much every single series of hers looks like the previous one to me. It was a short little thing, Zoro and Sanji stuck on a deserted island after getting thrown overboard and just. a;sldfkjaslksljk Zoro's out cold and Sanji's trying to decide whether or not to save him and, aside from the mouth to mouth aspect, it's like it could have come out of the series itself just about. I love that it was sort of gen, but still obviously meant to be for the ZoSan fans, sometimes this fandom is fantastic. <3 (This is gen, but if you like Zoro/Sanji, you should like this.)


One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - Tsuki no Sabaku Wo - Oh, I loved this one. It was almost like something that could have come straight out of the manga itself, it was all about getting stuck in a dangerous adventure and there were no makeouts or confessions of feelings, just Zoro and Sanji interacting in a high-tension situation. And I loved the way the doujinshika touched on Sanji's past because their current situation of being stuck in the middle of deserted island with limited water and food was bringing memories up, but it wasn't self-pitying, just that it defined a lot of him. I loved that they still fought even as they connected at the same time and asd;flkjaslkj some of the panels of them walking during the moonlit desert night with their cloaks over them, that is the kind of thing I'm weak to. *__* (This is pretty gen, but if you like Zoro/Sanji, you should like this.)


One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - Hentai-san ga Iku - This... this doujinshi is completely on crack, you can't take it remotely seriously at all. But that's part of the fun of it for me, it's so over the top, with Zoro and Ace both trying to win Sanji's affections, that I just sat there and was amuzed the entire way through. The art was mostly pretty solid, occasionally the artist really did a good job of capture the canon style, but mostly... yeah, this one was for the lolz and you pretty have to already be a fan to shut your brain off for this one. XD (Zoro/Sanji, Ace/Sanji.)


One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - I Told You So! - This is a Sanji/Luffy doujinshi, which is a pairing I actually really kinda like, but doesn't get that much attention in fandom. So this short little thing at only nine pages was a nice little treat this morning. It's pretty fluffy--Luffy is sick and thus doesn't have his usual energy, so Sanji finds himself responding in kind and it's... well, I think it's another doujinshi where you kind of have to already be a fan of the pairing for it to work for you, but it was cute, there were some adorable panels, and I enjoyed it a lot. <3 (Sanji/Luffy.)


One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - Zoro's Missing - And this one is just lolariously amusing and random, as Zoro is asleep on the deck, a large wave crashes over him, sweeping him off to Marimo Island and just... asdl;fkjasljk it's so silly and random and in the spirit of One Piece that I loved it. I also loved that it was another one that could have been totally gen, there weren't even any implications of feelings on either Zoro or Sanji's part, it was just a fun story where Sanji had to go kick Zoro in the face to knock some sense into him. The art isn't maybe quite as strong as Yamato's, but it still really did a great job with the OP canon style! (This is pretty gen, but if you like Zoro/Sanji, you should like this.)


One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - I Love Body. Love Body. - as;ldkfjaslkj Robin x Sanji doujinshi? Do want do want do want. Especially when she's using her Devil's Fruit powers because Sanji got an eyeful of her (by accident) and so now it's her turn to see him all flustered. And boy does she. I will never get tired of the idea, I love it with all my heart. It's not going to be for everyone and you probably have to have a healthy appreciation for bottom Sanji and a light degree of kink, but, well. I have my weaknesses and this doujinshi shamelessly played on them. :| Plus, the art is super cute! It's almost simple at times, but I really liked it, it's very... well, adorable! (Robin/Sanji, NC-17.)


One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated): Ayamachi - [Note: This post is locked, but the comm should be freely joinable.] I was immediately intrigued by this being a doujinshi about Ace and Luffy, though, really it's almost more gen than anything. The second half of the story implies more, just in the way they touch each other sometimes, but you could proooobably read this as gen? Either way, it really, really worked for me. It's a quiet story, about how Luffy can never beat Ace in a fight, not even once, then about how much these feelings are warmer than anything else, for both of them, and it's just. It's full of these quiet moments and gorgeous art of the two of them that I loved it. (I'd say gen more than anything, but it's a little Luffy+Ace.)


One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated): Mahou no Te - [Note: This post is locked, but the comm is freely joinable.] Oh, hey, Yamato did a Luffy/Sanji doujinshi, too? She's one of my favorite OP doujinshika, so to see her tackling this pairing as well was a delight! It's only a short little thing, Luffy says that Robin told him that Sanji has a kind of magic when he creates food, so Luffy wants to see it, and Sanji gets what she meant by that, and... it sounds like it could be really over the top fluffy sweet, but Yamato is one of those doujinshika that... she can pull it off and make me adore it genuinely. It's super sweet, but in a really good way. ♥ (Luffy/Sanji.)


One Piece doujinshi (scanslated): Haru Kaze + Sugar Fix + S.D.S! - [Note: This post is locked, but the comm should be freely joinable.] Oh, man, a whole anthology of Luffy/Sanji doujinshi? DO WANT. And there are three stories from it on this post, which totally made me sit up and pay attention when I saw it, let me tell you. The first two (Haru Kaze and Sugar Fix) are both really cute modern AUs that I really liked, there was a certain sweetness to them that was just kind of charming. I also really liked the art and, hey, high school uniforms (in the first one) can never go wrong. But it was the third one (S.D.S!) that was my real favorite--it's set in canon, just a random trip to a regular island, Luffy going exploring, Sanji off shopping, until the whole crew meets back on the ship, and Luffy doesn't know which part of his crazy adventure to talk about first! It's a great LuSan dynamic, it's partly funny (Luffy is seriously my favorite forever for the stuff he brings back or the way he approaches any given situation), it's partly kind of hot when Luffy drags Sanji into a kiss, but mostly it's just that kind of heart-warming adventure that I love about OP. And it was kind of beautifully in character, too. ♥ (Luffy/Sanji.)
