A story idea I wanna explore but probably won’t is Sun seeing Sage for the first time (before team SSSN is formed, obviously)
like, Sun just aggressively elbowing Neptune in the arm during an assembly at Haven or something, and Neptune’s like “OW DUDE WHAT THE HECK” and Sun’s just like “WHO IS THAT”
and Neptune squints in the direction of Sun’s sight to see who Sun is referring to, so Sun has to be more specific. “TALL, DARK, AND HANDSOME AT 2 O’CLOCK, WHO IS THAT”
And Neptune squints again because only one person in that gaggle of people fits that description and he kind of stares widely at Sun and goes “…you mean Sage? SAGE?! Dude, he’s scary!”
“He looks like if you look at him the wrong way, he’ll snap your neck!”
“Oh please, we don’t even know the guy!”
“Which also means we don’t know if he’ll snap our neck!”
And Sage kinda is looking around the general area, but he spots this tall guy with bright blue hair and this scruffy haired blond kid staring at him weirdly and he’s kind of going “not again…” on the inside, but he’s glancing at them more and the blond one seems to be… making a “Call me~” gesture?
“Am I hallucinating? Did I get enough sleep?” Sage goes as he rubs his eyes, and looks again.
“Sun, he’s looking at you!”
“Good!” Sun keeps doing these weird charades trying to indicate that they should hang out or something.
“I don’t think he understands you from here…”
“Come on, let’s move closer then”
“SUN, YES” and doing that Michael Jones-esque “Scuse me, scuse me, scuse me” thing as he moves between people trying to get closer to Sage to ask him out
