I take 5 minutes to think about the Leif & Thorn Gem AU, and the next thing you know, I’m fervently sorting through a dozen astronomy-themed gem names to match everybody I want to fuse with Kale.
Plus, a new reveal: this version of Kale has two cracked eyes behind his glasses, Pink Pearl-style.
Leaf Green Pearl (Leif) + Sunstone = Rainforest Rhyolite, a rock that includes lots of feldspar (like sunstone) and is delightfully plant-themed.
Sapphire (Thorn) + Sunstone = Star Sapphire, because come on.
Snowflake Obsidian (Woman in Black) + Sunstone = Pyrochlore, right at the symbolism intersection of “volcano” and “sunshine”.
