It has been always been buggling me how the will of the D. has been passed since the void century... But since Punk Hazard we've been given a precious information : devil fruits can be passed. With chapter 731 a further connection has been made : devil fruit perhaps pass "wills".
Too much information is storming through my head now so I'll just put it down as it comes :
- We know Devil Fruits can be, well, "synthetised", therefore produced. What if they are artificial to begin with??
- What if SAD is just reverse-engeneering of something which has long since been created?!
- What if their true purpose is to PASS A WILL?
- What if that hidden function only works with the D's, because : "Their body make up is not ordinary?" (Marco)
- What if IT IS THE CONTRARY INSTEAD : their true purpose ONLY manifests within someone carrying a D beacause they are mean to work that way???
- Law already pointed out that devil fruits are know to affect the user's blood some way.
What if the original method of transmission of the Will of the D. was by blood? What would have happened if everyone carrying that blood would be exterminated???
- What if devil fruits have been created to make up for that circumstance???
- What if they've been created to prevent THAT WILL FROM DISAPPEARING IF EVERYONE OF THAT LINEAGE WOULD HAVE BEEN KILLED like it's been happening for 700 years???
- What if a devil's fruit absorbs his user's will too when it disappears? WHAT IF FRUITS ARE JUST A MEDIUM, A DATA STORAGE DEVICE?
- D's are human so it's obvious that the fruits works on others too, but what if the abilities are just a camouflage to hide their original purpose?
- WHAT IF SMILES ARE NOT PERFECT BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO "WILL" WITHIN??? They only carry the powers that way.
- Gol D. Roger has been, on more than one instance, called A DEVIL ; and here we come to my breakthrough theory :
Fruits that carry precious data, A WILL, AND THE "POWER" TO STATE THAT WILL.
