I posted a rambling Plurk about this yesterday, then thought it would be cool to hear my f-list's thoughts about this, too, should anyone be interested in sharing.

I was having some vague thoughts about common fan speculations about the future of One Piece, and that led to thinking about how Oda tends to write child characters, and that led to more general ponderings about how a "true pirate" should act according to Luffy. (And probably also according to Shanks, Gol D. Roger, Whitebeard and perhaps other non-evil pirates in the story.)

Continuing the FB re-read. Up to somewhere in volume 19 right now. As before, plenty of spoilers behind the cut, including what I remember of later volumes as well.

I'm in the process of re-reading Fruits Basket from the start. I wish I had the skill and energy to make a full, coherent essay-like on it, but unfortunately all I can muster are some disjointed remarks. Warning for spoilers for the whole manga (I'm only up to volume 13, but since it's a re-read, I'll mention some things we won't find out until later. Avoid this post if you haven't finished the manga!)
