They are! Brought together through losing their parent (Foster parent in Franky's case) to the same thing, and nearly being executed for the same. Not to mention they both lost said parents to the same family of ass holes (Yes Spanda, I'm talking to you, you bondage faced bastard!) My heart gets all fuzzy when I think of them falling for each other under not so ideal circumstances.
I know, me too! Losing her mother shortly after being reunited with her, and her only friend too! Why did the Buster Call ruin Robin's life?! True, Olivia did leave Robin behind to follow her dream, but that shows devotion to her cause and her personal creed. And since she regrets not staying behind to be a proper mother to Robin, I can concede her going away. What I cannot ever forgive is Spandime causing the destruction of so much gathered knowledge and the merciless annihilation of people who had nothing to do with the gathering of that knowledge. The Spanda family is a disgrace to the world of One Piece, just like Helmeppo is, at least before becomes badass and awesome through rigorous training under Vice Admiral Garp.
agdhjshfgsdjf oh my god STOPPP too many feels ;b; Robin's childhood is like one of the few things that ACTUALLY made me cry usually I find it hard to cry even when I watch movies or read things but idk omg my heart just broke into two;;
