U know those before/after relationship hc u did with kid and bonney? Can you please do the sane thing with law and zoro please?
The sane thing coming right up, anon
Law keeps them at arm's-length, however close he comes with anyone in his crew he still have plenty of reservations when it comes to his personal space.
On especially demanding and stressful days he’ll track down his crush and strike up casual conversation with them. It’s rarely anything personal, but he appreciates having intelligent discussions about anything going on in the world, hearing interesting trivia they’ve read somewhere or them going on about their interests. Law will leave considerably more relaxed than he arrived.
Mixed in with his dry jokes and smug remarks there might slip out something that sounds an awful close to flirting now and then. But it’s definitely just witty banter and shouldn’t be read into.
He does fuzz about being shown affection but actually really likes it. He’s a big fan of giving side-hugs but will mostly leave initiating physical contact to his S/O.
Law gradually comes out of his comfort zone with them, having deeper conversations that are less one-sided and reveal rare details about his private life only a handful of his closest and oldest crew members know about. In a completely unhinged state he might even whip out his coin collection.
He tries to show how important they are to him regularly, and when he can’t show it through actions Law will tell them. It doesn’t even come off as cheesy or anything, just honest appreciation.
He’s very hard to read and rarely ever share anything too personal, him catching anything more than platonic feelings for the person will be well-hidden for the longest time.
He’ll casually tease them by giving them a nickname that they’d fight him on. Its what he does with a lot of people he’s comfortable around.
Zoro keeps an eye out for the person he likes. If they’re falling behind or getting in over their head while the crew is out on their adventures he’ll be right nearby. And as their journey reaches more dangerous places, Zoro encourages their training and even invited them to join him. Zoro’s intense training regime will most likely knock them out right away and intimidate them. But once they’ve recovered he’ll be willing to work out a lighter exercise program that’s humanly possible for a normal person.
He’ll adamantly deny giving them any special treatment, will even claim to use the nickname because he forgot their real one. It’s nothing special, alright? He’s just so casual about this crew mate and trying to do them a favor and give them some basic pointers before they’re locked into the weak-gang.
He’ll go from “we’re just friends, leave us alone” to “we’ve been together forever already, leave us alone” and refuses to elaborate on the matter further.
Zoro and his S/O can be frequently seen leaned up against eachother and napping around the ship. It’s about as much pda they can agree on without him being embarrassed about it.
His S/O and Sanji has a non-verbal agreement to occasionally tease him together when Zoro is being too Zoro. Sanji will spot them clinging onto Zoro from across the ship and catch him trying to weasel out of it, calling him ungrateful for having such an adorable S/O thats kind enough to waste their affections on a mosshead like him. After fighting eachother Zoro will spend extra time with his S/O just to spite him and he never catches on.

Hello there! So someone asked for a mini-syllabus of the horror that comes after witnessing something terrifying, and I wonder if you could do a continuation of that but closer to the emotion conveyed by this painting called 'Ivan the Terrible and His Son Ivan' by Ilya Repin. I love it precisely because of the stricken emotion in the father's face. Not to mention it is believed that he himself struck the fatal blow to his own son.
