All right, This is a weird one, I mean… this is one even I've seriously questioned. But, here it is... In regard to Logia type Devil Fruit users... 1. What constitutes a Real Body? 2. What constitutes a Fake Body? 3. If a Devil Fruit user holds a tool can they use it with their Devil Fruit powers? A Devil Fruit accessory, if you will. 4. Can it be said Whitebeard was inside of Blackbeard's Fake Body temporarily during the time they were under the Black Shroud? 5. What might happen if Whitebeard just died, and Blackbeard put him inside his Body (real, or fake, I really don't think it matters at this point). All right, what I'm suggesting here is that... it might be possible that Blackbeard, "ate" Whitebeard using his Fake Body. But, because it was a Fake Body-- after he reverted back to a Real Body, the only thing that changed was where the Devil Fruit abilities went (they transferred from Whitebeard's body to Blackbeard's body -- vessels). Thoughts... ? Like this. 1. Blackbeard's Real Body is his Physical Body, his normal form. 2. Blackbeard's Fake Body is any Darkness he extends his Will to. 3. If Blackbeard uses a Darkness Shroud (Black Shroud) to create a Dark Area, might he be able to extend the length of his body to the Darkness in the Dark Area? 4. If true, doesn't that mean Whitebeard was inside of Blackbeard?
