The Nami and Usopp's Matchmaking Show, an one piece fanfic | FanFiction
Setting: The setting now takes place in Nami and Robin's room. . Robin made it seem that Nami was in a relationship with Luffy and Nami is being possessive .. "But if I don't tell him, he going to be doing tests on me all day. An analyses of how these two got to know each other - how their relationship and . By jumping in the pool Zoro was probably trying to test out Nami's trust and. Zoro and Nami Moments ~ Nami has a weird relationship with the crew, its like Luffy and Usopp are her little brothers, Robin is her older sister, Sanji is her boy.
His distrust towards her however seem to never slow him down in his reactions as he immediately reacts or warns her. What is the most interesting is the fact Nami understood Zoro very quickly despite knowing him shortly.
She realized that the moment Zoro was shot by Usopp was because he tried to protect them. Since Zoro didn't have all three swords with him, he had troubles fighting the enemies. By this point, Nami already knows he is very strong and she believes he would be able to turn the tables in their favour if he had all three swords with him.
What does she do to help him? She knows that if she won't do anything, all of them will be killed and thus, she puts her life on the line and decides to take back Zoro's swords from the enemies since Usopp is wounded too.
What's also interesting to note is the fact how both of them think similarly here - Zoro thinks and wishes he needs at least one more sword and Nami thinks and decides she has to get his swords back if the situation goes on. Although she didn't handle his swords with much care, Zoro is still very glad and thankful she was able to get them for him.
From her actions, despite his distrust, it's clear that she is a good person and Zoro knows that. He saw her putting her life on the line just for the sake of getting his swords back. And I definitely like how both of them are smiling from Nami's success.
The Days Leading To Chapter 4:Confession, an one piece fanfic | FanFiction
The next important moment for their relationship is when Nami indeed does do something to abuse their trust they had towards her - she leaves with all their treasures and Going Merry. Zoro is clearly taken by it and he is angry for letting his guard down around her. No matter how I look at it, he was already starting to fully trust her, but this was shaken with Nami running away and stealing from them.
When Zoro goes after Nami to take her back, he encounters Arlong's pirate crew. Zoro clearly doesn't like the guy and he tells him he is here to look for a single woman, betray or not. He was there mainly because of Luffy's orders - remember, the guy was earlier angry with Nami who ran from them with all their treasures.
And yet, when Zoro finally finds her, his face clearly says he is very shocked and surprised. He can't believe Nami could be a part of Arlong's crew and he also questions her about it, asking her whether what she is saying is truly her true self.
I don't know what exactly was on his mind by this moment, but the fact he asked her whether this is her true self implies he is trying to cool his head and think this situation through. He didn't immediately jump in what she said and he suspected she could be lying and not saying truth. After all, why else would he still notice a change of her expression?
If he already believed every shit she just spouted, he wouldn't have a care for the face she made. If he truly didn't trust her like he claims here, why else would he jump in the pool knowing full well Nami could just leave him be?
He already found hard to believe Nami would be a part of a crew with Arlong, but her changed expression after Arlong accused her of being a witch was something that ensured him the most that she is not so cold Arlong described her to be.
By jumping in the pool Zoro was probably trying to test out Nami's trust and you know what, he was right. He knew she was trying to act though and he not only saw through it, he even pointed it at her. That must have frustrated Nami a lot, knowing someone she thought she could deceive in the end wasn't deceived by her and he even points out her flaws in there. This is also an important moment where Zoro was able to very deeply understand Nami 1 although he didn't know her too long 2 and even though all the facts about Nami betraying them was pointing at him, he didn't believe it completely.
More than anything, Zoro never truly knew what happened exactly in her past, he was truly just observing what happened here and there and he must have realized Arlong had something to do with the death of Nami's parent too. Aside from the trust, he has also shown a lot in previous times that he cares about her and he knows she is a good and caring person after all. The swordsman is later freed from the prison thanks to Nami and she tells him to leave the place but?
Zoro didn't do so, because apparently, he has nothing to do outside of there. Only after he says that line does he also add he promised Luffy to bring her back. Something tells me Zoro already decided to save her or at least defeat Arlong, promise or not.
Zoro later decides to go and save Usopp because Arlong wasn't present in the park. When it is revealed Nami probably killed Usopp and she even declares it, Zoro rans towards her.
This is one of the most rocky moments these two have. However, what I find interesting here is that he knows Nami can put a facade in other to save herself and her friends too - and this facade is something Zoro already saw through previously. He knows Nami is pretending here again, and because he has enough of it, he charges at her in order to wipe that facade off her face.
However, he is stopped by Sanji who as Zoro said, doesn't know much in the first place. If Zoro was truly so angry at Nami for killing Usopp and he wanted to kill her, why doesn't he show to be angry anymore when Sanji asks him about what Nami previously said?
Instead, he is smirking a bit, and what he states implies he didn't truly believed what Nami said either. As if I didn't say it. Besides, he already suspects Arlong is the cause and the death of Nami's parent played a role here too. The only thing he didn't know is the fact Nami was trying to buy back her village from Arlong - but on the other hand, knowing him, he could be smart enough to realize Arlong was doing something not so good to her village.
All the time during their fight against Arlong, the crew has shown how much they care about Nami, and I find a moment where Zoro shows Nami that Arlong is going down to be extremely nice. However, the most surprising moment was when Arlong took Zoro's bandages. It is clear from Nami's face she is very worried about Zoro's wounds and she realizes he has lied to her about it earlier in order to protect her.
If Zoro told her he got his wound from a Shichibukai, I doubt Nami would be able to hit him in his wound, which however would make her more suspicious to the Arlong. He knew that Nami has a soft spot when it comes to these - she has shown to be very worried about his wounds that weren't that serious like this one and if she knew how serious this one was, there is no way Arlong would be able to trust her.
After Nami saw the excess of his wounds, she must have felt guilty for hitting him there. In the battle, Zoro is seriously injured and he is shown to be unable to fight. However, when an officer Nezumi shows up, Zoro doesn't like the guy's actions at all.
He catches him with ease and he tells him the guy isn't really nice for trying to ruin the moment where people were celebrating. No matter how I look at it, Zoro was seriously angry that someone was trying to ruin the moment where Nami was truly freed from Arlong, his severe injuries weren't that significant to him at that moment at all. To the point they shouldn't. Nami's first victim in her money schemes is Zoro who needed to borrow some money in other to buy swords. However, he definitely lowered his guard around her as he totally didn't catch her talking about interest - while Nami is very happy he fell for it what a sly move Nami-san!
Zoro is however the first and only victim who Nami happilly lended her money to without the past debts as he by that point didn't do anything he has to repay her for. A Reverse Mountain arc is a very important arc where it is clearly shown how much a navigator is needed. Zoro pays attention to Nami as she tries to explain why is Calm Belt dangerous, but before she can get to the crucial point, the whole crew experiences it.
It's not like he didn't respect her or something, he just found hard to believe a storm is safer than Calm Belt who wouldn't and it's not like he totally dissmissed what she said, as he still asks for her point.
In the first place, Zoro asked why didn't they just head south to Grand Line instead of using a mountain entrance, he couldn't know Calm Belts were dangerous before he experienced it. Later, he admits that Nami was right and they have to use the entrance although he still finds it hard to believe. Later, they succesfully enter Grand Line and also get two new passengers onboard - Ms.
The crew then sails to their next destination but along the way, they have to overcome many weather changes. All crewmembers had their hands full of work, but Zoro alone was able to sleep through all of it.
When he wakes up, he doesn't have much time before Nami mercilessly punches him for his idiocy. Although Zoro shows he wanted to go back at her It's not like he is really afraid of her or anything, but rather, he didn't even have a chance after she beat him real good.
Zoro borrowed some money from Nami. In Whiskey Peak, it is shown Nami can make Zoro do what she wants despite the fact he is very strongly against it and he even goes to such lenghts as to argue with her about it.
Most interestingly though, it's Nami's sentence about the promise that actually makes Zoro do what she wants. Nami wasn't there when Zoro made the biggest promises in his life to Kuina and later to Luffy. She wasn't there, and yet she knew what he deems as important, the fact promises are things he would never want to break.
With that said, Zoro has to go even though he doesn't want. Their debt is this way wiped out and it is not mentioned anymore at least in manga. When Zoro for example gets lost, he is very happy to see "Nami" because he knows she can help him.
This is already a moment that shows he trusts her completely when it comes to navigation. That is to say, Zoro seems to sometimes still let his guard down when Nami is concerned aside from danger - he admited it himself in Baratie arc and now, he didn't really consider it might be someone else than Nami too. And knowing him, he should have been able to kind of fight back or something and he could have probably been able to get from the enemy, IF he suspected "Nami" here, just a little.
Later, Zoro, Nami and Vivi who were all captured by Mr. There are a lot of things going on here, but I will mention only two most important things.
When Zoro declares he will cut off his feet to fight the opponents, Nami and Vivi are both extremely shocked by it. However, Nami can't exactly say what else can he do, so in the end, he attemps to do it. Thanks to Luffy's intrusion, Zoro didn't succesfully do it, but when he is asked about whether they have problems, Zoro just casually says nothing at all.
Nami however finds his bleeding legs to be a problem and it is clear she doesn't like it in the slightest. This moment shows how much Nami can be worried about him a lot even though Zoro doesn't need it and he doesn't consider that a problem in the slightest.
It is still nice to see Nami would worry about him and care about him even when he deems it as necessary.
Nami/Personality and Relationships
Knowing the guy being a fighter and if he doesn't want to seriously look for his own wounds, then someone else has to do it right? After Nami has calmed down, she and Zoro have an extremely relaxed conversation going on and both Vivi and their enemies were taken aback by it. These two somehow already reached the point where they can even talk about these kind of things as they have already gotten used to it now. They are shown to be interacting the most despite being in such a condition, it's hard to explain, but I find it like they understand each other so well they know what awaits them.
As if it wasn't enough, Oda also gave them a small moment of their interaction in the battle Straw Hats vs. Barouque Works on Little Garden even though they themselves weren't that significant at that moment. When Vivi tells the crew about Nami's condition worsen, Zoro and Luffy are the only ones drawn to notice it. There is a big possibility he carried her inside, because later when Nami comes out, Zoro tells her he told her to rest while he take care of the rest.
In the manga, there was no moment he ever told that to her directly, nor was there a moment someone carrying Nami inside - interestingly too, it seems like Zoro voluntarily chose to navigate because he is doing it and seriously, who in their right minds would put him in this position?
The only time Zoro could have said he is gonna take care of the rest navigating while she should rest is while he carries her. If anyone right minded heard him saying he will take care of the rest aka things Nami does - navigatingthere is no way they would just let him do it.
These whole moments show that he cares about her a lot and despite his sense of direction, he is willing to take her position until she gets better. He also trusts her now when it comes to navigation and he doesn't question her orders on the sea anymore. After they managed to run from the storm, there is a small snippet that could indicate Zoro took Nami inside her room after she collapsed - he is seen to be the only one rushing on the deck where Nami collapsed in Vivi's arms.
What even fuels this is simply the fact he chose to sleep in her room with other crewmembers instead of guarding the ship - which Sanji was doing. The fun didn't end there. Usopp and Nami decided to have a little chat with Zoro while Robin wasn't around, just to test if he would blurt it out. Zoro eventually confessed, saying that Robin is a wonderful and interesting piece of art in human life form, and that he feels for her like how he feels for his three katanas.
Usopp and Nami have never seen Zoro smiled in such a way because of a woman, and this is their first time witnessing an event that they both agreed it should be another Grand Line legend — The Pirate Hunter and The Devil's Child, both infamous in the great wide blue sea, are apparently in love.
Usopp thought they could be so legendary that their children would be raven haired with green streaks who would slip flowers in between the pages of books they read and plays with stick swords in the evening. Step six, the downturn. They encountered a pirate ship by the name of Sunnies Pirates under 78 million bellies bounty Captain Margan, a few days following.
As in Punk Hazard and Fishman Island, Nami's weather bubbles and Usopp'ss new monstrous plants seeds had managed to keep them victorious. But in between the battles, there were something else. They have seen the scene replayed before — Zoro saving Robin at Skypiea, Zoro saving Robin from iced admiral Kuzan, Zoro saving Robin from that drunk octopus swordsman at Fishman Island — why is it recurring again?
They thought it was sweet at first, knowing the hidden romantic relationship. But then they realized something's wrong. Robin wasn't defending herself as she always did, instead, she let Zoro sprung into action to protect her. Zoro's victory left him a great deal of injury, while there isn't a scratch at Robin, not at all.
Chopper told Usopp that Zoro needs more rests than any others to heal. When Zoro's bandages almost resembled a fresh new marimo mummy with a haramaki — which Usopp found a little hilarious — he realized that Robin wasn't doing any good to Zoro. Nami agreed that Robin seemed to rely too much on Zoro for her protection, it was, though hard to admit, as if Robin was using Zoro for her own good. Nami and Usopp fear that they had made a big mistake, setting up the pair.
Step seven, realize the flaws and throw complimentary intervention. Zoro slept for five days straight without any effort of escaping bed and resume training, which worried Usopp and Nami even more.
When asked, Chopper said he lost a great amount of blood but thankfully not fatal nor brain-damaging. And yes, Robin did took care of him once in a while, but most of the time, she seemed to disturb his three swords a lot, writing things into her notebook. By day six, Zoro was able to join them for meals, but he hadn't resume back to his training just yet, claiming he is still too weak.
Knowing it's their fault all along, Nami and Usopp realized what they have to do. They prepared a good speech, and when they caught Zoro at the right time, while no one else is around, they told him that Robin seemed not to love him the way he feel for her. Step eight, the dramatic twist.
Nami and Usopp told Zoro what they thought of Robin. The two crazy matchmaker still tried to convince him, and they almost succeeded, until… …Robin walked in at their semi-rude comments about herself. She told them she heard everything, and that she was deeply hurt. She seemed angry that Zoro was almost convinced to leave her, and before she stormed out the room, she explained that she was studying his katanas to give him a surprise gift — a pillowcase with the exact embroided figure of the three katanas on it.
Deeply frustrated, she disappeared, and they didn't see her the rest of the night. Step nine, post-disaster apology. Zoro refused to come for breakfast the next day, and Robin did not acknowledge Nami and Usopp's presence at all, as if they're bathed in invisible paint that wouldn't come off.
Zoro and Robin didn't even talk to each other, Nami have sworn she saw Robin slapped Zoro once. Nami cancelled their dishes duty and rearranged the night guard duty schedule, in hope that she would have the chance to apologize to Zoro. She knew Usopp and her had screwed up the one relationship Zoro might come off well with, probably for the rest of his life. Guilt rose like gigantic glaciers, they feel the need to apologize to Zoro and have them make up.
Cold and still furious, Zoro listened to their apology, but he wasn't quite satisfied yet. I doubt you could fix us. You shouldn't meddle in, you insects. Usopp and Nami left the rest of their friends puzzled by marching around the Sunny deck with an apology picket sign.
