One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - As You Like - This is one of those doujinshi that I suspect I would not have read unless I was already a fan of the pairing (which I obviously am) because it's a short little thing and, while the art is cute, I wouldn't call it stunning, either. It's a simple little story about Zoro and Sanji being stupid boys about their feelings for each other and it's pretty straightforward, but it had a couple of really amusing moments--Usopp doing the narration for Sanji's first scene kind of totally made my day at least. XD (Zoro/Sanji.)

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) - Jukebox Dawn - In contrast to the previous doujinshi I read, this one is pretty much pure pwp and it's a little bit dub-con at first (though, it goes about the way most doujinshi do and a lot of it is just the two of them fighting because it's Zoro and Sanji) but soon gets underway and it's... the art is kind of this blend of Oda's style and a really beautifully done doujinshi style, hardly any white space left unused compared to most doujin, which just. as;dlkfjaslkj yes plz. It's not even 20 pages long, but the sex is really hot and the art is really hot and they're totally bitching in each other's faces the entire time and the perspectives are also a mix of doujinshi and Oda's style and then it ends on a moment that just. Totally made me laugh out loud a little bit. Excellent. (Zoro/Sanji, a good R-rating.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - Touching Distance - Now, I know I've read this one at some point before, but I don't think I was recommending doujinshi at the time, so I decided to just reread the whole thing (not hard, it was only about a dozen pages long) and a;xdlkjfa;lskjalks I still love this one so much. I mean, yes, it's doujinshi and Sanji protests less than you might think at first (but you get used to it, the more you read OP doujinshi) and it's a really hilarious concept--a thick fog rolls in, so they're all bumping into each other on the deck, which is when Zoro decides to stick a hand down Sanji's pants. Between the art being very nice (another good blend of doujinshi style and Oda's original art) and the humor being great (as;dlfkjas;lkj NAMI. I LOVE HER SO MUCH.) and the doujin not forgetting the antics of the rest of the cast and the porno, it was a really great read this afternoon. (Zoro/Sanji, a good R-rating.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - Tiger's Keeper - asd;lkfjal;skjslkj oh my god. This doujinshi. There are action scenes, the kind that could have come straight out of the manga and the sense of humor in the doujinshi just totally nailed Oda's style and, while a couple of characters were off (Robin looked a little off and you can tell the doujinshika is weak at drawing Chopper), for the most part, the artist also totally nailed the canon art style. It's about thirty pages long, there are fight scenes (that are actually seriously fucking awesome, watching Zoro and Sanji deal with being handcuffed together and fighting a mob of people after their heads, only getting more and more awesome with every guy they mow down) and then there are cast antics when Zoro finally manages to get drunk and, hell, if it weren't for the Zoro/Sanji makeouts at the end, this could have almost been straight out of canon, except for the obvious ZoSan bent. And I really don't say that lightly, because I love Oda's work like nothing else, and asl;dkfjalskj oh man even Nami got her super-awesome moments and just. I LOVE THIS DOUJINSHIKA. (Zoro/Sanji.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - The Moon and Six Pence - asdlfkjasl;jk oh god this group is seriously going to spoil me for both One Piece fandom and for the porno/quality doujinshi. Not to mention this doujinshika, because Yamato is seriously rocketing towards becoming one of my favorite OP doujinshika, she just. She just nails the sense of humor of the series and does an amazing job with the art and I kind of love her characterization. I mean, yes, it's still ZoSan doujinshi, but freaked out Sanji kind of works for me here because I do think he's kind of naive and sometimes occasionally caught up in certain things, which I've thought about him before. And it's not like he's suddenly nice to Zoro or anything. And a;skldfjasl;kj the ending cracks me the hell up every single time in her doujinshi, just like any OP doujin should. <3333333 (Zoro/Sanji.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - The Pirate Ship Noah - [Note: This post is locked, but the comm should be freely joinable.] It wasn't until I got a few pages into this one that I noticed that it was by Yamato who, asd;lfkjasl;kjs, I fucking love so hard. I was a little wary of the doujinshi because the summary was that Zoro and Sanji get sucked into another world and I thought, eh, One Piece AU? But it's sort of not really that. It's more like an adventure along the lines of what the original manga might do... you know, if it was going to go for ZoSan. What really makes it, though, isn't just that the concept is totally OP-ish, it's that the art is so reminiscent of canon and the characterization is fantastic and the writing is spot on and all the little touches, the difference in attitude that Zoro and Sanji have because of their backgrounds (a;sldkfjalkjs awesome use of brief, almost single-panel flashbacks to show where each of them were coming from) and Usopp sort of being the mediator between them, explaining both sides, just. a s;dflkjasljk YES. AWESOME. And it's about 75 pages long, too, and only the first volume of, like, five, so I expect it to be one of the most epic OP doujinshi, like, ever. TOTALLY AN AWESOME READ OMG. (Zoro/Sanji.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - Brave Story volume 2, chapter 2 - [Note: This starts about halfway through the story and you'll probably need to read the first chapters for it to make sense. I couldn't find working links for them on LJ, so I hit up 4chan and *cough* you should be able to grab it there.] This doujinshika... her art isn't going to be for everyone and I know I say that about a lot of stuff, but the things I recommend still have a certain something that manages to draw me in anyway and this doujinshi series is no exception. It's long and has something of a plot running through, even has a few brief action scenes, but I worry that a lot of people won't give it a shot because of the art. It's like Oda's in the sense that it's a bit of an acquired taste, but if you really look at it and read the story that goes along with it, it's actually really, really good. And I totally got sucked into this story, even when I'm always in a rush lately to finish up my recs, this one made me stop and read approximately a volume's worth for this one doujin. Really, the fandom is spoiling me, but. Oh, man, I'm kind of totally in love with Sanji here because, even as he's falling rather painfully in love with Zoro, he's still stubborn as hell, they both have terrible tempers, they still fight and irritate the hell out of each other and a;lsdfjkalskj I could not put this down. Oh, yeah, and? Nami is so damn awesome in this, I love her. *__* (Zoro/Sanji, brief NSFW content, but it's not graphic.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - Brave Story volume 2, chapter 3 - [Note: This doujinshi is one part in a series, it won't make much sense if you haven't read the previous chapters, which you can find in the above recs.] The thing about this story. Intellectually, I know that maybe I shouldn't let it draw me in as much as it does, that maybe I should be protesting against some of the stereotypes in it. And yet. I can't help it. I really adore this characterization (even if it is rather doujinshi!characterization) because it never sacrifices the bickering and how much work it is to get Zoro to be even just a little open about his feelings for Sanji. I adore this characterization because Sanji, for all that he flirts a lot, he really is very inexperienced in a lot of ways and a lot more of a romantic at heart (instead of just being a grand-standing flirt, underneath I think he really is a true romantic, in his own way) and... well, okay, this chapter did make me uncomfortable because almost-rape scenes (which might have been actual rape, it's a little murky) always make me kind of squicked, but the doujinshi made up for it by the Zoro/Sanji scenes after that and a;sldkfjasljk the emotional resolution and it's. Classic slash confrontation scenes and I eat that kind of thing up with a spoon. XD (Zoro/Sanji, definitely not SFW.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - Brave Story volume 2, chapter 4 - [Note: This doujinshi is one part in a series, it won't make much sense if you haven't read the previous chapters, which you can find in the above recs.] This chapter is super short, especially compared to the other chapters, clocking in at only 9 pages, but. But but but. It's post-resolution stuff, so it's really satisfying. And there's still bickering and it's one of those classic sort of OP moments where everyone is coming back for their nakama, because they're never going to leave that person behind and a;sldkfjaslkj everyone saying they're not going to leave Sanji behind just. It fills me with happiness. (Zoro/Sanji.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - Brave Story volume 2, chapter 5 - [Note: This doujinshi is one part in a series, it won't make much sense if you haven't read the previous chapters, which you can find in the above recs.] Back to a chapter that's 19 pages long and it... it's not really that plotful, the most they do is get into a fight with the marines (action scenes again! *__*) and Sanji's thoughts just sort of swirl around in his head, but it works as part of a longer storyline. And the deliciousness of the two of them with all these feelings newly surfaced and the way they're looking at each other slightly differently, I devour that kind of stuff. XD Plus, man, the art of this doujinshi... it's still the kind of thing that you'll probably have to be an established ZoSan fan to like, but if you are, it's kind of fabulous and only getting better. There's a surprising amount of detail and the close-ups on characters' faces are fantastic and al;skjdfslkj so good. (Zoro/Sanji.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - Brave Story volume 2, chapter 5 - [Note: This doujinshi is one part in a series, it won't make much sense if you haven't read the previous chapters, which you can find in the above recs.] And the conclusion plus an extra from Zoro's point of view, another 20 pages to read. And. *satisfied sigh* It was a really fantastic end to a fantastic doujinshi series. It's doujinshi, so of course there's that wrench thrown into the characterization (nine times out of ten anyway) but... slightly in the future and you overhear a conversation (before Zoro shows up) in Sanji's restaurant and it's the perfect happy ending after everything they've gone through. Then, because the doujinshika loves us a lot, an extra from Zoro's point of view, on how he first saw Sanji, on how someone who looks as elegant and mature as Sanji then suddenly spits out the foulest language (which is one of the things I love about Sanji) and yet. They're together and it's just. as;dlkfjalskj I'm goo, SHUT UP. At least I'm happy goo. (Zoro/Sanji.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - NyaNya Singing Studio DX - as;dlfkjasl;kja AHAHAHAHA oh god sometimes I love being able to shut my brain off while reading doujinshi, because it allows me to read cat ears and tail Sanji doujinshi porn without blowing a gasket over it. The art is solid, the characters are recognizable while still being doujinshi as well, but it's. It's the pure LOL of Sanji acting like a cat and Zoro being curious about it and Sanji mewing through the sex, even as he's ready to tear Zoro's face off and just. as;dlfkjaslkjsl I love ZoSan doujinshi with all my heart. Especially if it has porn. (Zoro/Sanji, NSFW.)

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) - GRAND PIRATES 3 - This is a collection of short stories from an anthology and most of them are just sort of random moments of whatever in their lives, moments of something quieter or something silly or just total random lolz. But I kind of like that, sometimes it's fun to just read a short little nine-paged thing, especially when you get five or six of them in this. Also, what I really loved about this one was that I was totally cracking up during the "married" storyline, it was just. a sl;fkjasl;dkjaslkj CRYING. And and and! One of the stories had Luffy eating Nami's last mandarin orange tart, so he kisses her to make up for it! Luffy/Nami kiss in a ZoSan anthology! EXCELLENT. It was gag, though, so you don't have to take it seriously, but my little shipper heart was gleeful. I also liked the one of Sanji's birthday and Zoro sitting quietly with him or Zoro flopping over next to him for a nap, little stuff like that. It was a fun collection of short stories to read. <3 (Zoro/Sanji.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - Samurai Heart - a;sldkfja;lskjsl;kj CRYING. Just. CRYING. There are three stories in this one and I really don't know if I could pick a favorite. The first one involves Nami and Vivi conning Sanji into a ~*special outfit*~ for Zoro's birthday (and a;sldkfjalskj Nami is SO AWESOME I COULD EXPLODE FROM IT, especially the birthday give she tells Chopper to give to Zoro, oh, god, crying). The second one is one of the greatest things I have ever fucking read. College student Zoro gets a present from Uncle Mihawk, which is a robot maid and it's got a terrible personality and I just-- It shouldn't be as funny as it was, but the doujinshika was obviously having fun with it and it was so Sanji meets Chobits that it became this brilliant little gag doujinshi that left me in a pile of laughter. I'm getting another giggle fit coming on just thinking about it. And the third one was Zoro's birthday again and Sanji baked him a cake and Zoro has a bad personality and it's just. as;ldjkfalskj I love Zoro/Sanji doujinshi so much. These three were pure fluff, but total fun pure fluff. XD (Zoro/Sanji.)

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) - 19's - This is another doujinshi by Ichinomiya Shihan, who did Brave Story (and as;ldkfjas of course I recognized the art even before I went to double check to be sure because, yes, of course I'm sinking far enough into OP nerdery to start recognizing doujinshika by their styles) and... I think this is an older work of hers? It seems like the art is less polished and a lot pointier than in that one. I still like it, she can still do some really great things with body language and close-ups on the characters, it was still a really satisfying read. And I love that there weren't really any makeouts in this, that it was just all about the feelings between the characters, about how Sanji had worked himself up into a mess over his own feelings, which... I know it's doujinshi and you have to take a grain of salt for every page of each doujin, but... I can believe that he would be the type to get himself all wound up like this. Plus, asd;lfkjasl;jk for all that she ratchets up the angst, she delivers on the resolution of it, so I love her. XD (Zoro/Sanji.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - BiriBiri - [Note: You'll have to scroll down a bit to find the link for this doujinshi.] Okay, this one was pretty much pure porn. The plot seriously goes like the Strawhats arrive at an island --> they rent cabins, one for boys, one for girls --> Sanji has to give Zoro directions to the cabin --> PORN! \o/ It's all a thin excuse to draw smutty doujinshi and, you know, I'm totally fine with that. That's what I read doujinshi for. And the art of this one is really pretty. It's the graphic sort, which means all the usual extra details, but the basic art is really pretty and I thought the sex itself was pretty solidly decent for doujinshi porn and some of the panels were really pretty! Hard to ask for more than that. XD (Zoro/Sanji, NC-17.)

One Piece Doujinshi (raw) - Kimi wa Tomodachi - [ book 01 + book 02 ] - Okay, I wanted to stay away from recommending raw OP doujinshi, because there were enough scanslated ones that I was going to stick to just those. But then this one came along and it did a few things that totally made me cave--first off, FOX AND TIGER EARS. I AM WEAK, SHUT UP. Second, gorgeous art. The covers are just stunning and the inside art looks beautiful on every single page and, oh, what I wouldn't do for scanslations. Three, while this is all about the Zoro/Sanji porno, there was Sanji + Robin interaction in the beginning of the first one, THERE NEEDS TO BE MORE OF THAT, JAPAN. (And some porno of those two would be nice, too, plz.) And, four, porno! \o/ Really pretty porno, too! So, even if it's raw, it's worth flipping through for the art and the sex and the prettypretty art and the animal ears and the super pretty art and, okay, maybe I'm just weak and it will have only hit me this hard, shut up. >__> (Zoro/Sanji, NSFW.)

One Piece Doujinshi (raw) - OKS Comix Author Selection: Tokunaga Mako Techniques - I really was trying to avoid recommending any more raw OP doujinshi and going back to just scanslated stuff, but... 162 pages! Like I could resist that. Plus, the stories in this anthology are actually nicely long, they're each about 20 to 30 pages in length, the art is solid and occasionally quite pretty (though, you can tell the artist is most skilled at drawing Zoro and Sanji), there's occasional light porn, and the artist does a few things that totally appeal to me. One, is a kick ass Nami, I believe. And two stuff like putting Sanji in a proper cook's uniform, like the one he wore as a kid. And the sakura watching one! *__* That was especially lovely. Well, the Alabasta-era one was really nice, too. *__* So, overall, it was one of those that was still satisfying to me and I just couldn't resist. <3 (Zoro/Sanji, not quite SFW on several pages.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - Limited Condition - This is a really short doujinshi, not even ten pages long, but! The artist just nails the canon style, a little more detail to the backgrounds and you could very nearly mistake it for official art in some points. And a;sldfkjaslkj god I love it when doujinshika can do that. It's a simple story as well, just Zoro and Sanji out looking for ingredients being their usual selves, getting along about as well as ever, only the one moment where Zoro's forced to rest his eyes and Sanji "sneaks up" on him with a kiss that implies more, does this doujinshi really deviate from the feel of canon. Which, as much as I love the porn, is sometimes super fantastic, which is why I enjoyed this so much. *__* (Zoro/Sanji.)

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) - Ichinomiya Shihan Best Selection [LovePotionNo.9] - [Note: You'll have to scroll down about 3/4ths of the way to find this doujinshi, you may want to just Ctrl+F for it.] This is another short one, only about ten pages long, but! It's fun and it starts off with a great moment--Sanji reading porn with a TOTALLY SERIOUS FACE because alsdkfjalskj it won't work anymore! And then Zoro comes along and proves, well, it doesn't work like that anymore and it goes about as you'd expect it. It's just a silly little thing, but I really like this doujinshika (who may not be to everyone's taste, the art is awfully pointy, but it's an acquaired taste for me, I think) and, really, I can't ask for more than that. <3 (Zoro/Sanji, NSFW.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - Cook of the Sea - God, I love this anthology, the doujinshi just nail the canon style in a way that's completely amazing. And, okay, this story is kind of silly--a stray dandelion seed lands on Zoro's head and grows into a little creature that multiples at a rapid rate and they all take a liking to Sanji, following him around. And just. With any other series, it would be batshit, but because it's One Piece... somehow it works. Also, the art really helps and it's not overtly Zoro x Sanji, just sort of implied and it's a light little read and so fun. ♥ (Zoro/Sanji implied, but sort of more Zoro + Sanji than anything.)

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) - Stargazer - I sort of hesitated a moment over recommending this doujinshi because it's kind of lacking the thing that usually makes OP doujinshi so much fun--that Zoro and Sanji keep their bickering and fighting throughout the pages, while here they're getting along surprisingly well. It... to be honest, does feel OOC and not in the usual way that I can suspend my disbelief over. And yet! I had to recommend it! The art is very pretty, it's clean and sharp and has some really fabulous shading in it and I adored looking at the characters the whole time. So, recommended, just with a little caution. (Zoro/Sanji.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - Angel Beat - Ahhh, now this is better. I think I may have read this one before, a long time ago, but I wasn't doing doujinshi recs at the time, so it should be a new rec. It's a pretty simple concept--one night while they were at Skypiea Sanji has to take a leak and Zoro follows him. Sanji is not thrilled with the spiders even more at night and reacts accordingly. Zoro's kind of a total shit about it and decides to play, "Where did the catapillar go? Is it in here?" and as;ldkfjasl;kj they bitch the entire way through the sex, even as it's really prettily drawn and just. I love doujinshika like this. Totally fun and a pwp that's reasonably IC (for doujinshi) and worth checking out if you like the pairing. (Zoro/Sanji. NC-17.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - Uncharted Island - I was pleasantly surprised by how on-target the art of this doujinshi was, the doujinshika really did a terrific job with keeping both the look and the feel of Oda's art. It's not quite as detailed and some characters aren't as well done as others (you can tell the doujinshika has a little trouble with Nami at times) but I liked the storyline in the sense that it actually had something like a plot! The kind of plot--they're stopped at an uncharted island and a few strange things happen, all in the day of the life of the Strawhats--that you could see happening between the pages of the manga. Very cute and fun. (Zoro/Sanji.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - Sweet Martini - a;sldkfjalskj nnnnghh god I love Yamato's work, she just does such an amazing job of making the characters look like the original canon and has such a great sense of humor about the whole thing. Zoro and Sanji hiding in a closet so they don't have to fight a bunch of guys, while Zoro gets sleepy and has to do something to keep himself awake. Only Zoro. XD And the way he touches Sanji, the way he's such a bastard about it, the way this is kind of really hot, all of that is fantastic. *__* (Zoro/Sanji.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - Dasein - I was a little unsure of this doujinshi at first, the art was all right and reminded me vaguely of Oda's style (enough to recognize the characters and be fond of it right from the beginning), but Sanji and Zoro weren't fighting like I was used to, Sanji was even happy. But I kept reading because it was ZoSan and Luffy/Nami in the same doujinshi and just... idk, somewhere about halfway into this, it got really good! Zoro has trouble admitting his feelings, Sanji just throws himself into love, they don't quite reach each other until the end, and Nami is so goddamned awesome I could explode from it. Seriously, Nami is one of the best reasons to read this doujinshi, she gets to be smart and hilarious and awesome and just really wonderful. The Luffy/Nami hints (and one page of outright pairing stuff) were a great bonus, I'm not quite sure they're worth reading the doujin for if you can't stand Zoro/Sanji, but Nami herself is worth it, imo. Plus, I wound up really kind of liking this take on Zoro and Sanji and how connected they felt to the entire crew and why it took them so long to get anywhere. <3 (Zoro/Sanji, some PG-13 stuff towards the end.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - Veterinarian Super - So. If you hang out in almost any given fandom long enough, you're going to come across certain cliche ideas. Like, say, tiger!Zoro and fox!Sanji. These things just happen. And sometimes you have to admit to yourself that, yes, you are that fangirl and you kind of totally dig that sort of thing. It helps that the art of this doujinshi is really gorgeous on certain pages, that the sex scene is beautifully drawn, that both of them are very hot in this one. The story really doesn't have to make much sense (Sanji has fox ears/tail, Zoro has tiger ears/tail, Sanji's being weird, Zoro finds out the reason, then they have sex, the end) or have a point, because the story is not the point. The point is the pretty art and animal ears and tails. And I eat that sort of thing up with a spoon. :D (Zoro/Sanji, very NSFW.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated) - Sweet Devil - I wasn't sure what I was going to get when I first snagged this doujinshi, especially after having read the tiger!Zoro and fox!Sanji one that hit my kinks so hard. But then I started reading this one. And realized what the author was doing--various devil fruit abilities that would totally throw Sanji's life into chaos and a;sldkjfasl;kj there was so much lolz in them. I think the first one (the teary-teary eyed fruit) was probably my favorite, just because I could see it coming from a mile away and yet was still so lolful, but all of them were great. The art was solidly done, I liked the characterization in this doujinshi, and the concept was hilarious. That's all I need! o/ (Zoro/Sanji, kind of NSFW.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated): Pointless, Perverted Gag - [Note: This post is locked, but the comm is freely joinable.] I didn't know what to expect when I opened this doujinshi to read, but it was just... asd;lfkjas;lkj crying by the end of it. A bottle washes up to their boat and inside it is a perverted sage demon, who decides to, ah, give some advice to Zoro and Sanji's sex life. The doujinshika is fully aware that this is a gag doujinshi and yet it's fairly IC (given that it's a ZoSan doujinshi) and the art is fantastic and I love how much they both want the sex even while they're still very Zoro and Sanji about it, which just makes the whole thing genuinely fun to read. Plus, I was totally crying at the sage hovering over their shoulders giving them each advice on how to make the sex better and more skillful, even as the porn was nice of the doujinshika to give us. o/ (Zoro/Sanji, NC-17.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated): The Pirate Ship Noah (volume 2) ~To Get Windward of Her~ - [Note: This post is locked, but the comm is freely joinable. This is also part 2 in a series of linked doujinshi.] It's been over a year since I read the first volume of this doujinshi series, I think? But I jumped right back into it because the first volume was so damn memorable and this volume is an amazing follow-up to it. It's nearly 60 pages long of a story by a doujinshika who is incredible at just nailing the OP style and sucking me into the emotional journey that Zoro and Sanji are going through here. They've been pulled into a painting that lures in people who have great affection for the sea and Sanji is getting pulled further and further along, but Zoro isn't. Which makes things a little difficult and what the doujinshika is really good at is making you feel the building tension and the emotional stress of the scenes. By the time Zoro is frantically swimming towards Sanji or when they're in the cargo hold and you can see Zoro's flashbacks, my heart was sucked into the story as well. Just. Seriously, hands-down the best ZoSan doujinshi I've read. (Zoro/Sanji.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated): The Pirate Ship Noah (volume 3) ~To Get Windward of Her~ - [Note: This post is locked, but the comm is freely joinable. This is also part 3 in a series of linked doujinshi.] I am still really loving this series! 70 pages of awesome, because you get a bit more information on how the pirate ship in the painting works and the doujinshika gets further into both Zoro and Sanji's backgrounds and issues, it furthers the plot along nicely by connecting these two even more than before. I love that Zoro, despite being an emotional idiot most of the time, is the one who gets really invested in the relationship and won't let Sanji just run away and, OH MAN Zoro was kind of on fire in this book. When he was pissed off/angry because he thought someone had hurt his nakama or when he was being posessive of how Sanji was his nakama, not the people on this ship? You remember just how goddamned scary as hell Zoro actually is. The doujinshika does an amazing job of making him hot (and Sanji is pretty damn smoking hot, too) and showing just how dangerous Zoro really is when he's pissed off. *__* (Zoro/Sanji.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated): The Pirate Ship Noah (volume 4) ~To Get Windward of Her~ - [Note: This post is locked, but the comm is freely joinable. This is also part 4 in a series of linked doujinshi.] This is about 20 pages shorter than usual (meaning, it's only about 55 pages instead of 75 *__*), but it still packs a hell of a lot in for just one issue! This time, it's Sanji's turn to deal with his issues and reveal parts of himself to Zoro so that their connection strengthens. And they finally have sex, after a whole lot of UST for a whole lot of pages--and, almost more than the sex itself, I love the build-up to it. Sanji being in a good mood and not wanting to wait, Zoro chasing after him in the hallways of the ship, Sanji at least trying to get them into a goddamned room, the way the doujinshika can create this whole atmosphere of want and need and tension between them is fantastic. Plus, there some more insanely good art (especially on Sanji with this volume!) and more kiddy Sanji flashbacks and even an awesome as hell scene where the ship starts taking on too much water and sinking. So good. (Zoro/Sanji, NC-17 for this volume.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated): The Pirate Ship Noah (volume 5) ~To Get Windward of Her~ - [Note: This post is locked, but the comm is freely joinable. This is also part 5 in a series of linked doujinshi.] I'm really sad to see this series end, but... it's such a good ending that I find it hard to really complain. I loved every page of this volume, from Zoro and Sanji's fight against the water rushing in towards them to the two of them stopping to have an argument while the water is still rushing in to the two of them having to put it aside for awhile but it comes back up later to the way they have to learn to trust each other to the ending. I love that they both obviously have feelings for each other, that they're both kind of in love with the other, they're both wildly attracted to each other the entire time, but they're still Zoro and Sanji. They still fight and piss each other off all the time. Plus, the artist balances out the awesome between them again, so half of the time Sanji's getting the focus, the other half of the time Zoro is. And I cannot say enough good about the ending and both their reactions to it. And, hell, I even love that this doujinshi series created original characters that felt perfectly at home in the OP world. Just. a;sdklfjaslkj favorite OP doujinshika ever, for serious. (Zoro/Sanji.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated): Progpose - [Note: This post is locked, but the comm is freely joinable.] This is another doujinshi by Yamato (who did the Pirate Ship Noah series) and, man, I still love her art. This is a much shorter story, it's only about 10 pages long and it's much more laid-back and thoughtful, it's Zoro and Sanji talking about feelings while they sit in the crow's nest as it snows. Because of the way she draws the characters, something like this works for me, because she gets the style and feel of One Piece down so that something like this is a real treat. (Zoro/Sanji.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated): Yves Piaget - [Note: This post is locked, but the comm is freely joinable.] Oh, god, crying at this. The Strawhats hear of an island where roses bloom that make your emotions ten times stronger--whether happy or sad or whatever. Of course they want to visit!! And it's pure hilarity as Zoro gets dragged into things as well and his emotions get dialed up to a hundred around Sanji, who has the same effect in return and just. I love established relationship hijinks like this, especially one that fits in SO FREAKING WELL with the One Piece world. I can totally believe there's an island out there in the OP world just like this. And of course Luffy would come along right at the good point, which only made this more fabulous.. (Zoro/Sanji.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated): Tsukiyomi - [Note: This post is locked, but the comm should be freely joinable.] This is just a short little story of Zoro and Sanji drinking on a quiet night after the others have all passed out, talking about how Zoro doesn't seem to get drunk that much. But Zoro says even he gets drunk when he drinks and that he's a happy sort of drunk. Sanji is surprised by this and then it's just a sort of cute moment that ends it hilarity, only about ten pages' worth of story or so. It's silly and just one of those light-hearted moments with this crew and it was a fun read today. (Zoro/Sanji sort of implied?)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated): Kierkegaard no Jitsuzon - [Note: This post is locked, but the comm is freely joinable.] This is a really interesting doujinshi, becasue... on the surface, it's about Zoro and Sanji coming back from a supply run and their usual bickering, but underneath that... as the notes on the post say, it's about Kierkegaard's philosophy and how truth is subjective in a lot of ways. That it's not just about hard facts, but "truth" is also how you relate to those facts yourself, which is the undercurrent/theme of the story. It's an interesting look at Zoro and the way he looks at the laid-back situation he finds himself in and the people he meets along the way. On the surface, it's a simple story, but Yamato really makes it a lot more than that. I liked this one a lot. (Zoro/Sanji.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated): Rose and Melancholy - I picked this doujinshi up because, hey, ZoSan and the cover had vampires on it! And the doujinshi is definitely inspired by the Thriller Bark storyline, which I love, because it's a bunch of gothic-style extra doodles and such, but the main storyline is... well, it's Zoro and Sanji has half-animal forms, with Sanji as a Kappa and Zoro as a Bull, and... the art is really gorgeous, at times it's prettier than Oda's style itself, it really nails their character designs. But there's this one moment in the doujinshi. I saw it coming from a mile away and, still, when it happened, I was just... a;sdlkfja;lksjl I pretty much having stopped crying with laughter since. I LOVE THIS FANDOM AND ITS TOTAL CRACK. Especially when it's such pretty crack. (Zoro/Sanji, somewhere between PG-13 and R.)

One Piece Doujinshi (scanslated): Pool Bar - [Note: This post is locked, but the comm should be freely joinable.] More Yamato doujinshi! I always brighten a little whenever I see something from her because she does so well with nailing the characters' looks and personalities, I know her work is always going to be something really good. And this one is no exception! Her Zoro is kind of seriously hot when he's pissed off and Sanji's trying to figure out why, or when Zoro makes him spin around so he can see that Sanji's wounded, or when there's sex up against the wall. There is not nearly enough wallsex in the world, for serious. Plus, the extra bits with all the 'bad omens' with the rest of the Strawhats is kind of totally adorable. <3 (Zoro/Sanji, NC-17.)

One Piece doujinshi (scanslated): A Kiss Coram Populo - Oh, man, why did I stay away from One Piece doujinshi for so long? I'll grant you that the art is on the rough side, but there's a ton of potential and the occasional really beautiful panel and, okay, the reasoning for Sanji acting weird is pushing it a little. But beyond that? This is why I love the ZoSan fandom so goddamned much. Because I shrieked with laughter the whole way through this, not just at Zoro and Sanji, but at the whole Strawhat crew! I love that the whole crew has a moment at least once, a moment that probably made me howl with laughter just in the same way Oda does, right down to the beautiful comedic timing of it. Sure, I appreciated the kiss and I found the Zoro/Sanji super hot, but honestly. I think I laughed the hardest during the scene on the main deck where everyone got involved in the ZoSan fight. Just. Everything about this one, where Sanji is acting weird and telling Zoro not to touch his face and then Zoro getting Chopper involved, just. Beautiful. ♥ (Zoro/Sanji.)

One Piece doujinshi (scanslated): Not Everyone Can Do It + Overnight Extra Menu - There are two doujinshi here (the second one is only eight pages long, though) and they're both by the same doujinshika as the previous rec, Saruya Hachi, who has just rocketed up to the TOP OF MY FAVORITE ZOSAN DOUJINSHIKA LIST after these. They're more of the brilliant comedic timing the doujinshika has, along with solid art and the potential for something even better. I love that the author keeps the Zoro/Sanji dynamic very similar to canon--they constantly fight at the slightest provocation, but she puts so much more underneath it and they have their more genuine moments, but. Even the sex is hilarious! I seriously laughed harder than I can tell you in the middle of the sex from the first link here and the second one was almost as hilarious. I love that it's almost sort of slice of their lives stuff (Zoro/Sanji fighting, so Nami puts them in a corner, Zoro constantly sleeping, Sanji wondering if he's being avoided, the Strawhats being idiots around them, then hilarious sex) and yet they just fly right on by. I could read these forever. ♥ (Zoro/Sanji, a light NC-17.)

One Piece doujinshi (scanslated): Your Voice - While this is a different doujinshika/circle this time, Shounen Spectre, there's still more super-hilarious ZoSan sex that had me kind of stuffing my hand over my face to muffled the laughter, less I actually kind of shriek with it at at least one point. The art is much stronger in this one, perhaps slightly more away from Oda's style, but still very reminiscent of the style, yet kind of prettier? It's hard to describe. But I really like the doujishika's style and I fucking love Zoro's warped way of thinking, after hearing a rumor about what kind of noises girls make during the climax of sex, so he's bound and determined to get Sanji to make the same sound, even if it kills them both. It's hilarious, but it's also kind of hot (the sex scenes are very pretty) and I love that, even when they're fucking, there's that push-and-push-back dynamic that is so great with the two of them. ♥ (Zoro/Sanji, NC-17.)

One Piece doujinshi (scanslated): Kaisui Pearl (Saltwater Pearl) - [Note: This post is locked, but the comm should be freely joinable.] Another Yamato/Ichioku doujinshi and, goddamn, this is why she's probably my favorite pretty much ever. It's a simple story--Sanji is hurt, Zoro is watching over him, Sanji is in a world with people he used to know who passed on, Zoro is left behind, and they both are forced to face the feelings they have--but it's done beautifully and I may have actually put my hand over my heart a little at the end because I was so touched. The art is lovely as always, Yamato really does a fantastic job with making both characters look super hot, but also IC in how they bicker and yell and yet there are these amazingly heartwrenching moments with both of them and everything they go through. And, oh, Robin was a delight in this and the ending was super satisfying (despite the lack of porn!) and it was just wonderful, every single panel of it. ♥ (Zoro/Sanji.)

One Piece doujinshi (scanslated): The Ecstacy Zorosan - I'll warn ahead of time, as is usual with ZoSan doujinshi, you pretty much have to go into it expecting to get the usual tropes of BL doujinshi. I like that stuff in my doujinshi, however, so I was totally onboard with it, especially since this is Haga Inochi, who does fantastic OP-style writing and drawing! Her Zoro and Sanji are beautifully in the spirit of the characters and I laughed more than once while reading these two chapters (Sanji is especially delightful when he's so pissed off at himself for enjoying the sex and I love that Zoro actually wants confirmation that Sanji wants this, otherwise it's no better than rape) and her drawings just nail Oda's style with these characters. I love that this doujin was satisfying for the porn (even if it's only a few pages total), but also for the hilarity and the emotional interaction between these characters. AHHHH, I HAVE MISSED YOU, BABIES. (Zoro/Sanji, a light NC-17.)

One Piece doujinshi (scanslated): To Put You In Your Proper Place - Sometimes I forget just how good ZoSan doujin fandom is! I did feel a little "..." dropped into the middle of a story where Sanji is having out of body experiences for no reason that ever is really explained and the dialogue is a little awkward here and there, but. The core of the story and the art and the interaction and the comedic timing is perfect, it does the OP characters total justice. I can't tell you how many times I laughed at the random moments of hilarity and insanity with the Strawhats, how much I loved that nearly all of them (besides just Zoro and Sanji) got their moments here. I love that, aside from the ZoSan porn, this probably could have just about come from the manga itself, because it's pace was so beautifully done and Saruya Hachi also just completely nails Oda's style with these characters. AHHH I AM GETTING SPOILED WITH THIS FANDOM AGAIN. (Zoro/Sanji, somewhere between R and NC-17.)

One Piece doujinshi (raw): Cowabunga - I... I don't know if I love this doujinshi with or without irony. I mean. It's Sanji with cow ears and a tail. Having sex with Zoro. I... I think I'm at the point in my fannish life where I kind of love the hell out of this sort of thing just because it's hilarious. I do appreciate that the doujinshika does a solid job of capturing Oda's style, you can tell that these characters feel much like their canon counterparts, even if the art could use some polishing in places. But the artist definitely has potential, there's hilarity all the way through this and it's a very quick read! There's not a lot of porn, just some heavy makeouts (that I would still say are pretty NSFW), and the occasional bit of Zoro in tiger ears. It's well worth a flip through if you're in the mood for some ZoSan and you're like me in that animal ears = instant hilarity. :D (Zoro/Sanji, NSFW.)

One Piece doujinshi (raw): danshi mikka awazareba, katsumokushite kore to miyu - This is another doujinshi by Mind Escape (who did the Cowabunga one) and I was intrigued by the concept (post time-skip, Sanji's curious to see how Zoro's body has changed, then there's porn) and I was pretty amused by just how much Zoro could sleep through, but... given that the art wasn't as strong here (despite a nicely drawn cover that I liked) and there wasn't really much beyond porn here, you pretty much need to be looking for the porn to enjoy this one. It wasn't bad! I'm glad I snagged it! I liked it enough to recommend it, but... I do think the right mindset going in is important. It's cute and porny, that's all I need. :D (Zoro/Sanji, NC-17.)
