I think that even though rebecca is attacking Luffy at the moment, in the end i think that she's goin to join the strawhats. the crew does need another girl afterall and she seems to have a sense of good. so i think she will get the fruit and then join luffy. so it would be kinda like Luffy has his brother in his crew.
I vote other because in a not-so-surprising turn of events this Mera Mera fruit could easily be a hoax. How do we know this fruit has the same powers as Ace's fruit? I personally feel like it could be a trap and be a way of Dofla making Luffy fall into another one of his well thought out plans. Luffy giving it to someone, that person dying/being forever ruined by this fruit, Luffy being over whelmed by emotions because A) it's not Ace's fruit B) Law's plan and likely his whole crew might be in peril because of his naive actions and C) because whoever he gives that fruit to and changes forever, he'd end up blaming himself. I feel like Dofla wouldn't allow even the slightest possibility of Luffy actually getting that fruit. That would be too foolish of a mistake for Dofla to make/too convenient or expected of the plot to take that direction. "Oh no, Strawhat exceeded my expectations, got the fruit I so readily made available to him by just beating other guys in a tourney AND now it's about to bite me in the butt and ruin my grand plans?! Whata TWIST!!"
No. Way too obvious, im sure any fan of one piece has thought out that scenario and Oda knows it, so why would he make happen what the readers so obviously expect to happen? Not an Oda move *in my opinion*.

There are two scenarios for the mera mera in my mind.First noone gets it because the whole tournament is interrupted and DD's crew ambushes Luffy.The second one is that Luffy earns it in a big fight against Burgess and ends up giving it to Rebecca who will join the crew.I didn t think Rebecca would join the SH crew because usually the ones joining have a big part to play in the arc.But after the last chapter i think Rebecca will become a factor in this arc and once DD is dethroned she will be able to sail with the SHs
i have a feeling burgess will get it though
I think Luffy will find no one who is in his oppinion fitting and willing to eat it, and otherwise willing but not fitting.
So I hope Sabo is alive and hungry.
Otherwise,... how should they defeat kaido and big mom(not sure if they really fight her)

IMO there are a bunch of scenarios that may transpire in relation to the Mera Mera no Mi:
1) Luffy gives it to Rebecca whose determined to protect Dressrosa at all costs. Her story might be sad enough to warrant that he gives it to her. However, she does not join the straw hats but instead stays back in Dressrosa to master the fruit as well as protect her land.
2) Fujitora confiscates the fruit and takes it back to HQ. Wano country may have been a WB protectorate prior to MF events and he was bound to have come across Ace. He would take the fruit back to Garp who was the closest to Ace. Garp would then pass the fruit to Coby.
Of all the potential characters to date he is the only one fit to inherit the fruit.
Coby is not Luffy's Garp. Coby is Coby. He only wants to challenge the man who motivated him to get a grip on his life/dream. Smoker is more of Luffys Garp. Dressrosa has had some similarities to Fairy Tail. Coby is going to be a mirror of Natsu: a pink haired fire guy
3) Luffy gets the fruit but gives it to no one (Dressrosa/Current SH). Its not like there is a timer that has been placed on it to be consumed. He can stay in possession of it and give it to someone he sees fit during their travels.
4) JB gets the fruit.
i know that if you eat the Mera Mera fruit the user have to die for it to grow somewhere DD got the mera mera in WG battlegrounds but what about if you destroy the fruit without eating it?
if it is gonna grow somewhere then let luffy hold into it and wait for the right person to eat it and not a random guy
but if it is permanently destroyed then he will destroy it rather than BB's crew and other people have the power for them to use in a bad way
When it comes to "Who should get it" - I think the fruit must go to a person with routine and as Dagama said: there are lots of people who are searching for the fruit now and Blackbeard or any other haki user would defeat Rebecca if she doesnt get those years that Ace among others had to train for the attacks and defence.
Sanji as everyone says is the most clear for me, Rebecca just wants the fruit to defeat DD, which is a pretty clear statement that he will fall, by Luffy/Law or as a touché: Rebecca slaps him..
Downside if Sanji gets the fruit, he will have a great boost for the monster trio,
He is also the crew strongest swimmer and if im not wrong he has stated that he likes the idea of still swimming. I also feel that the DF would also not suit his fighting style as it works well for brawler type fighters.
Despite this it would be cool if Oda let him have the DF and he becomes Sanji 'The Flaming Cook'.
Jimbei and his ability to summon whales are something I hope and looking forward to, its possible for the man who aims to be Pirate King to summon that kind of help.
I hope they all will agree about the Mera Mera no Mi on the Thousand Sunny after dressrosa
I've seen those drawings of
Im not the first one who thinks of a "Firefly" when it comes to small fast fire dwarfs/gnomes ^^ theyre strong as the most people in the new world, they say..
