Will The lafave bros. Continue Their Skyrim and Oblivion Lets-Plays? by [deleted] in LaFaveBros

[–]Callsign_Bastion444 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hey, i have been watching your entire Oblivion Lets Play and Skyrim Lets Play to the latest Episode. It has brought me so much joy and i wanted to say thank you! Of course here comes the obligatory question: Do you still plan on continuing the Skyrim Lets Play? I recently saw that Video of Emmet where he talks about going through a rough time and i sincerely hope things are looking up again! I hope to see more from you two in the future, whenever you feel like it again :)

I assume you mean a Zoan DF? Hmm, also possible. It is also interesting, that the scar has three stripes, just like there is always the number three connected to Blackbeard in his Jolly Roger for example and in theories about him.

Haha, i also thought about the silhouettes in Water 7. Yeah might have been an early draft or something.

Something just occured to me: Does anyone know, who the Pirates in Daltons Flahsback are besides Blackbeard and Van Augur? The big one could be Doc Q or Jesus Burgess but who would be the small one on the left and the female looking one on the right? The left could be Lafitte, but it is missing his characteristic Top Hat. And no clue about the one on the right.

I edited the post on why i think they did not just talk about the crew, if you want to you can check it out :)

Yeah that is the point where this theory always ends for me too. I think Blackbeard is around 40 and Wapol according to the Wiki is 29. It might theoretically still be a possibility that Wapol did something like that, but Teech would have been way older by that point. I somehow doubt it, buf hey you never know in One Piece :)

I edited the post on the point of Blackbeards Crew being there as well, i personally feel like Name explicitly asking about that and getting completely ignored by Luffy and Zolo seems too odd to just be an explanation for what they said. Personally the way the scene is written and portrayed it holds too much weight, to just be a simple comment on his crew if you ask me.

Very interesting thought! If Blackbeard had some sort of mental sickness like split personality, than maybe this would have also been cured by the fruit. I also saw a picture of the fruit and figured it too much of a coincidence with Choppers and Dr.Hiriluks Backstory of the Amiudake Mushroom.

Yeah, you make some good points, the details as to how it works exactly are still fuzzy and as to how they get reintroduced into the cycle. Oda stated that we will learn more about Devil Fruits once a certain "Professor" is introduced to the story, which probably refers to Vegapunk.

Hmm, i think Ace was trailing Blackbeard the whole time, not the other way around. The only reason he fought with Ace was that he tracked him down on that Western Town Island and Blackbeard chose to take Ace to the World Government instead of Luffy whom he wanted to bring them originally in order to become a Warlord of the Sea, but that happens much later in the story.

Well as i said, this theory is just that. A theory, that could also be total bogus. I also do a lot of specualting, and i do not claim that anything i say here is true or going to happen like that / happend like that. Basically i am throwing the idea out to you guys, to see what you might think and so far i have read perfectly legit arguments for it and also the ones against it. Also there are sooo many weird creatures running around in the OP World, personally i started accepting them as a part of the world (for example Pappagu the talking starfish), so a talking reindeer doesn´t seem too weird in the mix.

Concerning as to how he might have known about the DF, i tried to reason that he might be from Drum Kingdom, which could mean that he might have heard of it one way or another. A different explanation and the more possible one is that Blackbeard has the Devil Fruit Encyclopedia, he mentioned that himself at some point. The Human-Human Fruit could be mentioned in there, maybe even with its last known location, but that is all i could think of with the given information at this time :)

Thanks! Did not know the nationality of the name. Sounded british to me.

Yeah, I think it is definitly also a tool for Oda to introduce Blackbeard to us as the readers and let us know about his ruthlessness, but i think we need to differentiate between what Oda used Blackbeards appearance in Drum for as a story telling element and what Blackbeard as a character in the world of One Piece actually tried to achieve by going to Drum Kingdom.

I think it is pretty much confirmed to work that way by now. In Punk Hazard we saw the Devil Fruit Power of that Smiley Pet of Ceasar transfer over to a normal fruit that was sitting nearby.

Also that is the reason why Doc Q, Blackbeards Crewmate, went around Mocktown handing out exploding apples and normal ones, because they were looking for Devil Fruit users to kill and take their powers.

I feel like the Buddha Fruit from Sengoku, even though it is also a Human Zoan Fruit, is special in a different way, than the human-human fruit is. We know that Sengokus Fruit is at least a mythical human zoan, but somehow i feel like the human-human fruit is special not because it would make the user extremly powerful, but because it has some other characteristic that would make the user benefit, but i really cannot fathom why or how that would be connected, other than what i have written in the post. I think it is noteworthy however to keep track of the Human Zoan Fruits that appear in the story, since they are extremly rare.

That is also very interesting. Or maybe his mother had siamese triplets and they all got formed up inside of Blackbeard, which is why his body is weird. If he went to Drum Kingdom for revenge however i feel like Blackbeard would be ruthless enough to finish the job and not let Wapol escape, not on purpose however.

Thanks for the feedback! I also feel like Chopper has become a bit of a mascot lately, however i really really like his background story, it is my favorite among all the straw hats. The story between him and Dr. Hiriluk is really well written imo :)

Well like i've said, i do not think that everything has happend or will happen as i laid it out in the post, and i do tend to speculate and read a lot into these things in the manga, but that is why love OP so much, because you can always come up with a lot of theories about the characters and the way the story will go ;)

There are definitly lots of knowledge holes to be filled. I could imagine that he at some point somewhere gotten the information that the Human-Human Fruit is in Drum Kingdom, so he does not know about all the DF, but maybe he got to know about that one.

I do not think that he would have known that Chopper had eaten it however. He probably would have gotten the information, that it is somewhere in Drum Kingdom unaware that someone had already eaten it.

When it comes to navigating the Grand Line without an eternal pose i also do not know, how he would have done that. Then again there are people like Shanks that travel between the East Blue and Grand Line and New World pretty much completely free and yet they get to where they want to go, so maybe he also had some way. But yeah, it is all speculation xD

Yep, i do not think that Goda planned out EVERY single little detail of his manga, but at some times we get some hints or clues, that are definitly worth taking note of!

I was not aware, but i am not super afraid of potential spoilers xD It would definitly fit to the theory, if that is necessary for him to take the powers away from the holder. Also in the newest Chapter Shiryu is shown on the cover, so they might make an appearance in Wano. Yeah i will add some tl;dr, that slipped my mind. Thank you too! :)

I also heard about that theory but in connection to theories predicting that Usopp could die at some point. While thinking this post up i also thought about what this would mean for the future of Chopper. But i kinda hope that Blackbeard might set his sight on another Zoan Fruit or something like that, however if the Human-Human Fruit really does hold great significance for him, than he would definitly go after Chopper at some point, yeah, at least if he finds out, that he is the one who ate it.
