Fanfiction and foolishness

Who do I have to write to, to get some art of the monster trio drawn as Zeus Poseidon and Hades??

I’m scrolling down my dash and see a post with this picture.

then I notice:

IS THAT A DAMN STRAW HAT? WHY? WHAT? My One Piece paranoia kicks in at full power. 

It’s even better in the "truth" version from 400+ years ago. Look at that little shit being the only one actively talking to Noland.

LOOK AT HIS ENTHUSIASTIC FACE CLEARLY IN LOVE WITH ADVENTURE.

ODA WOULD AND YOU ALL KNOW IT.

ONE PIECE-ING INTENSIFIES

I just learned that apparently there is a condition called "Place Blindness" or topographic agnosia where a person can't use visuals to direct themselves and can become lost in familiar environments. It made me think of Zoro immediately! On a related note, face blindness makes me think of Luffy.

calgaras:

Oh yeah… Prosopagnosia is the cognitive impairment of facial recognition. It’s super plausible with Luffy. People with prosopagnosia usually need to reply on other indicators to identify people, like hair style/color, body shape, voices, clothing, and so on.

He’s got green hair, three swords, and a white shit, so he’s gotta be Zoro, right? And he’s got blond hair, curly eyebrows, and smokes, so he’s gotta be Sanji. And it also makes sense for how Luffy thinks that Sanji and Duval and Sanji’s wanted poster look the same.

If Luffy (and Oz, who had Luffy’s personality and mind) can only differentiate faces based on their object features (hair color, hair style, eyebrow shape, etc.), rather than the face itself as a whole, it would make sense that to Luffy, there’s no real difference between how Sanji and his poster look.

And it would also make sense with how Luffy often gives people nicknames based on their physical appearance, like calling Kuma “that bear Shichibukai” (because of his size and his hat, which has bear ears on it), calling Shiki “steering wheel,” and even calling Bartolomeo “chicken head.” If Luffy is able to focus on a specific, very distinct object feature of a person’s appearance, I imagine it makes recognizing them a lot easier.

I only wrote about Luffy here, but it’s super likely that Zoro has some kind of topographical disorientation. I think he could have heading disorientation or topographical agnosia, though I think the first might be more likely. Zoro seems to be unable to comprehend what north is, and equates it with up, and has a hard time telling left and right apart, or conceptualize things like “go right at this landmark.” He could have both tho.
