So sorry posts haven't come around as often. I've just been kinda unmotivated lately, so here's something I'm probably never going to finish.
This is an older, scrapped Adrigami concept fanfic (with a side of Feloe) that I have no will to finish anymore. I don’t really want it to collect dust though, so I’m sharing all that I have.
Adrien & Lila salt included. If that’s not your thing please carry on and ignore this.
(I just don't support Adrigami as much as I did before, so that's why I'm thinking of canceling. They're cute in fanon, but Adrien's just so stupid in canon that it's hard to support him with anyone.)
“So… Exactly what kind of trouble does Adrien get himself into these days?” Kagami asked the black cat kwami out of genuine curiosity.
“Depends on what kind of story you’re looking for. Did you want to hear one where he tried to escape grounding, where Viperion put him in his place for flirting with Ladybug, or perhaps the very one where he allowed Liar to manipulate him and get away with all sorts of things?” Plagg responded.
“Tell me those that deal with that Liar. I’d love to give her a piece of my mind.” The girl replied, already thinking up some ways to get back at the evil, manipulative witch. She wouldn’t let Lila get away with tricking Adrien like that, no matter how naive her boyfriend could be to such actions.
“That’s not necessary! She’ll probably figure out that I’m taken once she sees us?” Adrien started, hoping to convince his girlfriend to let things go.
“Seriously?” Kagami asked, eyebrow raised. “Do you really think that a compulsive liar like Lila would respect boundaries? Especially yours, someone who she clearly has romantic feelings for? Don’t kid yourself.”
“She’s not as bad as you make her out to be, Kagami. If you’d just give her a chan-“ The blonde tried, but couldn’t continue due to the interruption.
“So she kissed your cheek with your consent that time?” Kagami challenged. “Are you telling me she did no wrong? Didn’t make you uncomfortable in the least with her actions? Because it sure didn't look like you were enjoying yourself."
“W-Well… Okay, maybe I didn’t explicitly tell her it was fine, but… I didn’t think she meant to hurt anyone?” He attempted. “Lila needs friends, not to be outed that way! She’ll learn her lesson… Eventually?”
“Gosh, Adrien! Are you even listening to yourself? That liar took a picture of the kiss and sent it over to me! Of course she was trying to hurt me! And yet you insist on defending her anyway? She’s NOT even one of your closest friends!” She screamed, clearly frustrated with the boy. “What you need is to set up boundaries with her, because I’m NOT about to stick around with you if you don’t! I’m NOT about to stand by and watch another girl fawn over you like you’re single, or attempt to steal you away because you’re too seemingly fragile and defenseless to fend for yourself!”
“… Kagami… I…” He started… but what could he say to appease her? She did bring up a good point. Lila was far from being one of those great friends of his. No matter how many chances she’d been given, she blew them. Marinette already tried with him plenty of times, but it fell to deaf ears.
"I… I thought you were different… That in time you would learn not to trust her. Not to give her the benefit of the doubt anymore." She stood firm, disappointment evident in her eyes. "But you won't. You'll always blindly see the good in her when there is none!"
He just stared blankly at her, silent, because what could he say that he hadn't already? His beliefs and hers were different… and he thought maybe the space would give her time to see how wrong she truly was… because he was in the right. Wasn't he?
“Until you’re ready to actually have any sort of decent conversation on the matter, don’t contact me. Because as far as I know you’re a lost cause when it comes to her.” Kagami struggled to say, as she reached over to the door. She was stronger than this. “I may love you Adrien, but you’re so infuriating at times…"
Once he heard the door slam, the blonde knew he’d screwed up. He didn’t even have to look to his side, to know Plagg was glaring at him. He knew the feeling all too well.
“Still think defending the Liar was the right move?” Plagg asked him, clearly annoyed. “Because from the looks of it, you might as well have lost Kagami. Lila shouldn’t be worth your relationship.”
“So you’re taking her side now?” The rich boy asked, clearly insulted that his kwami couldn’t care less about how he felt.
“Of course I’m taking her side! She sees things as they are!” The kwami argued. “Kagami is smart enough to see things through and if it comes down to it, I’d much rather help her get even than to stand by with you and watch as Lila ruins everything in her path.”
“This wasn’t Lila’s fault!” Adrien argued.
“You’re right.” Plagg seemed to agree with him for the first time that day. “It was yours! You were dumb enough to believe that Lila could change her ways. All the while hurting your girlfriend’s feelings by not listening to her side… to her feelings on the matter. You treated her as if she was meaningless to you! And yet she’s the girl you claim to love?”
"Maybe this wouldn’t have occurred if she could understand my si-" But the kwami had had enough of his partner’s excuses, he wouldn’t even let him finish that dreaded sentence.
"Kagami's always been incredibly patient with you. She only ever listens to your side! Every. Single. Day!" He emphasized every word. "The least you could do is offer her the same courtesy. But you don’t… Because you’re NOT capable of being understanding in the least. And this isn't the first time either… You didn't even respect the boundaries Ladybug set in motion before. It could be partly because of how you were raised, but you brought this upon yourself… And you’re not willing to change at all!”
This wasn’t how Adrien saw this day going… He thought he and Kagami were mature enough about their situations to handle anything… But then why would she act this irrational all of a sudden? And why ever would Plagg take her side over his?
Perhaps he should go pay Chloe a visit… After all, she might as well be the only one who would understand his point of view. She often sees things his way anyway.
Chloe fished out her phone from her pocket, upon the sound it made, notifying that she had just received a text message… From Adrien?
The two barely ever texted one another, seeing as they saw each other often… So what could this possibly be about?
“Hey Bee. It's Plagg, my dumb holder forgot his phone here. Listen, he's off to your place for some reassurance and comfort over where his dumb actions got him today. Kagami's really upset with him. Try and talk some sense into him in regards to Lila, yeah?“
She pinched the bridge of her nose after she read the message, replying to the kwami with a simple thumbs up. Why did her childhood best friend have to be so stupid? He had a great girl by his side and yet this 'Lila' was still an issue? She’d thought they’d been over that already.
"Your cousin's an idiot." She sighed, looking up at her boyfriend from her comfortable position in his arms. She'd been cuddled up with Felix for about a half hour now, and while she didn't want to leave the warmth he'd provided her, she knew she had to as soon as Adrien dropped by.
"Nothing new there." Felix commented casually as if this was a usual occurrence. "What did he do this time?"
"Ruined his relationship, if Plagg's text is anything to go by." She responded, frustrated with her oldest friend. "I'm so close to killing him."
"I'll help you bury the body." He said jokingly, well… mostly.
She sent a small disapproving glare his way. "That's not funny."
"Chill out Chloe, I didn't mean it. I know how much my idiot cousin means to you." Felix told her, planting a light kiss on her head.
"You're lucky you're cute… and warm… Those are the only reasons I still keep you around." the blonde girl said, as a little tint of pink took over her cheeks. Sometimes she hated how much of an effect he had on her, but then again she wouldn't have it any other way. He never complained about her clinginess to him, so she supposed he was a keeper.
A few moments later, she untangled herself from Felix, got up from bed and headed straight to the door. Adrien was probably going to knock on her household’s door any minute now and she wasn’t about to let him off easy. She had plenty of words she needed to get off her chest and he was going to listen to every one of them, whether he wanted to or not.
