AU where Arco curse doesn’t happen and a year before the Cradle Affair Iemitsu loses Tsuna in Italy thus leading to Tsuna finding the Arcobaleno and Varia. He bonds with both groups and shenanigans ensue (Nono doesn’t know whether to despair or be happy that his son no longer hates him)
If there was no curse, the Arcobaleno would be pretty old. Plus, I don’t really know how you’d get them all together. Maybe it’s best to just stick with the Varia for this one? .-.
Just imagine little Tsuna’s adventures with the Varia, though…
Little Tsuna calling Bel ‘Hime-sama’, and Bel being super frustrated because on one hand, he’s a prince, but on the other, someone’s finally taking him seriously. Lussuria trying to convince the others to adopt little Tsuna. Little Tsuna comforting Levi about his status as a butt-monkey. Little Tsuna offering to braid Squalo’s hair, which Squalo turns out to adore, but no one’s offered to do it since his mother and older sisters passed away/were killed/something and he felt awkward about asking. Little Tsuna giving Xanxus a warm, friendly hug, because he felt he really needed one, and Xanxus just not computing and eventually maybe crying a little because no one should be deprived of hugs for a long time ok. Mammon watching from the sidelines, totally resigned. The Varia actually trying to adopt little Tsuna.
i have a lot of feelings about Varia-Tsuna interactions ok
