Sir Crocodile secretly likes hugs, but he doesn’t want any of his colleagues to know. With a big coat like that and the height he has, he can definitely hide you under there for hugs with no one knowing.
He’ll give you a kiss on the forehead now and then, and you’ve come to enjoy or at least tolerate the smell of cigars on his breath. You’ve caught him giving you the stink eye when you forgot to give him a kiss.
He makes sand sculptures for you, and lets you help him pick out outfits. Crocodile doesn’t do a lot of cooking himself, usually he gets other people to do that for him, but for the sake of getting to do something nice with you he is open to learning. Once he’s learned a thing or two he doesn’t mind getting his hands dirty to surprise you on special occasions.
He makes an effort to stand on one side of you vs the other so you can hold his real hand. He yearns for physical affection every time he’s around you. But when you’re constantly on guard for enemy attacks and your go-to defense is being an untouchable mass of sand, social cues are going to suffer a bit. Not to mention his pride, asking nicely for a moment of vulnerability. He’s getting there, but it’ll be a long term effort.

ONE PIECE 30 DAY CHALLENGE
Day 3: Favorite Arc
It was a really hard decision, but after putting a lot of thought into it, I really think that Impel Down is one of my absolute favorite arcs. It shows that people can put aside their differences and agendas to work for a common goal. There is an amazing display of power, excitement, drama, and the reappearance of my second all time favorite male character, Sir Crocodile!
I also like how, even though Luffy doesn't have his crew with him, he still manages to bring together a band of people willing to help him, and you can see how important family, friends, and freedom is to the young pirate. Even when faced with hell itself, he is willing to face it head on and come out with gum gum fists flying!
