Synopsis

Choices. Crossroads. Opportunities.

Plunged into a broken world ruled by the strong, Damien must decide how his newfound life will proceed. Navigating through conflicts and alliances, his journey intertwines with the fates of powerful figures and kingdoms, challenging the very fabric of the hellish world.

Set against the backdrop of the legendary One Piece universe, this tale reimagines familiar characters and lore, weaving a narrative that explores themes of power, redemption, and the indomitable spirit of adventure. 

Damien's quest is not just for treasure or glory but a deeper pursuit of a truth that could change the course of history.

As the tides of the Grand Line shift and churn, Damien confronts the harsh realities of the pirate world, facing challenges that test his limits and forge his legacy. 

In this saga of the high seas, only the bold dare to dream, and only the strong survive. Will Damien rise to become a legend among pirates, or will the unforgiving waters claim yet another soul? 

The journey to discover 'One Piece' is as perilous as it is wondrous, and for Damien, every choice and battle is a step closer to his ultimate destiny.

Join him as he goes against all odds in the world of Pirates, Marines, and Revolutionaries, sailing on the Path to Power!

My honest review (still biased). Naturally, with respect to fanfictions, I'd round it to 4/5. It is a different timeline than most One Piece fanfics with a more driven MC, lest he is swept away by the turbulent seas. The recently posted chapters are a rewrite, thus ANY review before this one is outdated and inaccurate. I suggest reading the first arc, chapters 1-11, to get a taste of the story and whether it is for you. Check out the Disclaimers chapter for more information. Thanks for stopping by.

The best fan fiction on van peace that I have read in my life. I won't say anything about grammar, since I read with the help of a translator, which makes it almost impossible to notice mistakes, but the writing style is very pleasant to the eye. The character of the characters is very natural and there is no feeling that the author has changed them for the sake of his plot. The very infusion of MC into the plot also feels natural, which is very good. The beginning may seem cringe, as well as the actions of the main character in the first chapters may cause some to discard this fan fiction, but then the author has greatly improved. The battle scenes are written beautifully, the improvement of the main character's strength is consistent and fast, but it does not go beyond the OP. Romance also pleases, although the author constantly writes that such scenes are not given to him, for me they look very nice.

A really good start for a fanfic. Nice devil fruit. Good Talent. I hope the System wont dictate his life, because the strength of the people in One Piece fluctuate very much. And I hope his cheats wont become too rediculous. I like the curse release and a bloodline. I hope he works hard for his power.

Dope, sincerely I hope it's not dropped like every promising one piece fic. By the way, for those considering dropping the story because of the system at the start being a bit much, don't it gets better, a lot better. The greatest thing about this fic is when it's set, rocks pirate era is so interesting and something I've never seen explored. Forget all those joining the strawhats fics I need more rocks fanfics.

Writing quality: Well, since I use a translator to translate into my mother tongue, I wouldn't know how to give you a rating, but I suppose it's okay, since you're quite descriptive, in fights you're ok, you know how to put a construction and continuity in fights, I highlight The fight against Enigma, which is quite decent, I put 4 stars because I cannot give an exact judgment due to the fact that I read the fanfic in translator, that's why I give a star for the margin of error. Stability of Updates: It's pretty good, a daily chapter, the only thing I miss would be to put Chapter Packs like 5 chapters in a day or something like that, but outside of that the chapter cadence is pretty good, a 5 stars in this department. Story Development: This is quite good, the beginning of the plot as Born and grows seems tremendous to me, that they give us their motivations in the first chapters is quite good, although they are lost and are not clear in some stories. What I like most about this work is how the MC acts with the world and its members, how it is a motivation for Mihawk, a help for Katakuri and Kuzan, A rival for Kaido, a Kouhai for Whitebeard and Shaky, Each one of these relationships are understood and created in a good way and do not clash at any time. Also take a risk by making history in the time of Roger and Rocks, but use this risk is used to enrich this empty part of history by setting the Overlords that are goals and that have to be reached. Although there are Power ups that could be categorized as cliches and it gains part of its power with the system, when there are important advances it is noticeable that it is due to effort and time, the author does not tremble to prepare his MC with time skips and training , although if he has some other power or cliche but in general terms it is fine, for now the main character knows where he is and where he is going, he does not get stuck in the Rocks crew, he goes to the future, and that is very good, There are some gaps such as the fact that Enigma did not use Lilin to stop the MC, since she was owing him the Gigantization Serum, and at that moment Enigma would have told him that the favor was paid if he helped him stop Damian and Kaido. Character Design: this is one of the parts that I like the most about this work, as it adapts characters that have not come out almost like Rocks or OC characters like Enigma, They cause an impression and respect as the one that Rocks should give, he feels like the leader of a crew like the Rocks and Enigma feel the same way, command respect and behave like the person they are supposed to be, a powerful Overlord who has held his position for many years. About the MC, the character is constantly evolving, he does not stay stagnant and thinks about the future, when he does not correct his mistakes the world does, but he realizes his mistakes and tries to correct them, as when Rocks explained that not all can enter the crew, he was naive and realized and corrected it, The goals are from the first chapters since the author instead of making a first arc that focuses only on the evolution of power of the MC, made a arch that also raises and gives us to show the character of the MC. World Background: The creation of the world is very good, this is made based on the time of Roger and Rocks, a time already seen but little described in the manga and anime, he takes advantage of these gaps to enrich the world by his own hand, putting characters, Islands and settings of his own authorship, which do not seem out of tune with the world of One Piece, although there are some times that he conveniently uses that freedom to drive his characters, such as the supposed island of Death, but they are minor details. When these scenarios created by the author are where an important plot happens, they are endowed with a good description to the point where we can imagine the place with the same animation of the anime

This is the best one piece fanfic I've ever read, haha ​​I'm tired of readers who always say harsh words or negative words and many are due to their comments, many fanfics that I like are dropped. I hope they understand the many writers who earn nothing just to entertain readers to the point of racking their brains to write a good chapter. Just because of the genre or nature of mc's characters many flock to encourage other readers to pressure the author because they don't like the content of the story, please man if you don't like it don't read it and if you want a fanfic story according to your thoughts write your own fanfic and see the reactions of the people readers who read your writing so that you feel the feelings of the writers when you comment negatively. (By google translate)

One of, if not THE best One Piece fanfic I have had the pleasure to read. The idea and timeline setting at the start of the novel is new and interesting, the characters are well fleshed out, the devil fruit is interesting and the story progression and pacing is good and well thought out. The grammar is good, and I rarely notice any mistakes. Also has a good update schedule. I have no other words than that it's an amazing story. If you enjoy the One Piece world then this is a must read. 5/5.

An utterly unnecessary rewrite. The author took a one year hiatus in order to organize everything and rewrite. The previous one was already pretty good, the author could've just gradually improved their writing and the quality of the story by releasing chapters regularly. However, they said they wanted some time to rewrite everything because they wanted the whole book to be consistent in its quality. The result? This ridiculous... thing? Honestly, I'm incredibly disappointed since this was one of my favorite fanfics and the previous one certainly managed to tug at my emotional strings, but this one isn't doing it at all. The incorrect use of adjectives and certain verbs isn't helping with the immersion, the characters that were properly fleshed out in the previous writing weren't even fleshed out properly (e.g. Whitebeard vs Borealis), the world-building is worse compared to the previous one, and the story development and pacing is all over the place, it feels like you don't know what they'll do next (not in a good way) and since everthing just happens all of a sudden without a proper build up or suspense, the story ends up feeling lackluster compared to the previous one, a shadow of its former self. To conclude, this is a rewrite that turned out for the worse. WAY WORSE. If you expect this'll be as good as the previous one, just read something else and save your time.

The early chapters is just too disgusting to read, i can't bear to read the pov of a dramatic chunni guy I'm cringing so bad. I read that this is going to be rewritten, will it really happen?
