Oh yeah I had more to respond here. The rest of the response to [mention]Marco Polo[/mention] was from the Ace Novel. I need to pull up my copy and reference it. But basically, if you read the novel, there are so many parallels between Ace’s behaviour and Luffy’s that it’s difficult not to see it as the two of them having the Will transferred at Marineford. Maybe before but I’d say then for sure. There’s the crew being built by adopting various species and people who were lost and homeless in various ways. There’s the way in which he only didn’t start a thing with the Celestial Dragons because he had a babysitter but his crew expected it of him. At least some of them did. There’s giving weird nicknames to people upon first meeting them. I mean sure they’re brothers but it’s Luffy’s story, after all. Even if other D’s had it in part, it’s his path that we’re most drawn to overall.
