One Piece dream thread? I like it! Here's the scoop fresh from my brain this morning...
The Strawhats were out and about, and they were talking to some people (I don't know who, but I think they were normal citizens). The subject of marines and admirals came up, and Luffy says, "Oh, yeah, we met Aokiji." The citizens gave a spit-take, of course, and Luffy goes on to say, "He even gave us his pen." (As in a sort of proof that they had indeed met.)
So he holds out this really nice ballpoint pen that is blue with dark blue stripes and the name "AOKIJI" written on it in white letters. (Now that I take time to think about it, I highly doubt such a high-ranking official would have such a blatantly silly writing utensil.) The citizens are very impressed that the Strawhats were given such a significant token from such a significant man. One person cannot help but wonder, "Holy shit, do you know how much could you sell that for?!" At the mention of that, you could practically see the beri signs in the air. So without delay, everyone-- citizens and pirates-- got straight to working on plans to make bootlegs of the pen to sell on eBay.
