I have this headcanon that while Natsu was away Lucy would visit Yukino often to train and so became really close to Saber tooth and because of her forgiving nature she’s get close to Minerva too (plus they have Erza in common) and when Natsu and her finally make it to Sabertooth in their travels he’s completely floored because Rouge is ruffling her hair and Sting calls her “Lucy-nee” and Yukino and Minerva cling all over her and don’t let him near her because “you made Lucy cry!” and it kinda pisses him off and I’ve thought about this too much I think. Also Lucy calls Minerva “Mine-chan” because it’s adorable and she can.
