'''One Piece: Parallel Works''' is a 2011 ''Manga/OnePiece'' fanfic by Oxenstierna D. Yuki-Rin. As of April or May of 2011, the original fourteen chapters were taken down, and a noticeable re-write begun.

The story is set two years after the Whitebeard War. Even though the Capricorn Pirates have been sailing since before the story began, the story begins when the captain of the Capricorn Pirates, [[AuthorAvatar Yuki-Rin]], finds a wandering boy named Kazuma Miyafuji on the side of the road. She takes him into the crew, which is the catalyst for this fic.

Currently, this story is on the '''Vampire Princess Lavinia Arc''', where the Capricorns deal with vampires during Carnival celebrations. This fanfic contains examples of:
