    And you know what? I’ve had some other things on my mind in regards to that last post, so I’m going to go off here.

    No one shipped Lukanette or Adrigami thinking we’d be endgame. I’ve seen maybe one take that argued “hey, maybe the rival ships have a chance at being endgame” but I’m pretty sure it was half-joking. But even if it wasn’t, it’s a drop in the bucket, and most rival shippers have already accepted the inevitable - that the Love Square is endgame. The writing is on the wall. Canon and fanon are on the Love Sqaure’s side. Don’t believe me?

    So Ao3 has almost 43,000 works listed under Miraculous Ladybug. So let’s break down the number of Love Square fics. For this, I’ll start by filtering to include the Love Square relationship tag (labelled “ Adrien Agreste | Chat Noir/Marinette Dupain-Cheng | Ladybug “)

    Yeah. That’s nearly 25,000 works, or nearly 60%, just including that tag. Now, obviously this doesn’t take into account other Marinette or Adrien relationship tags. So let’s now eliminate fics that would be tagged for Lukanette (labelled “ Luka Couffaine/Marinette Dupain-Cheng | Ladybug “) and Adrigami (labelled “ Adrien Agreste | Chat Noir/Kagami Tsurugi “)

    So we’ve lost maybe 1,000 fics, that drops us down to approximately 56% of total fics for Ao3. That’s still the vast majority.

    So how about the other way around. How many Lukanette fics are there?

    A little over 2,000. And how many of those don’t include the Love Square tag?

    Not even 1,500. Not even 1,500. 

    And naturally, the statistics are even worse for Adrigami.

    Not even 1,000. And that’s before we’ve eliminated the Love Square tag!

    That’s over 40% of the Adrigami works eliminated. 

    Now, obviously there are other Marinette and Adrien ships that I could have eliminated from my searches, but we’re not talking about those ships because we’re not arguing about those.

    We’re here because I want to reiterate my main point:

    The Love Square already has everything. It was endgame back when the show started, it remained endgame even when the mains got other love interests, and it will continue to be endgame as the show continues airing. The creators have basically stated it outright, the show continues to make it obvious as the light of day (why do you think episodes like Oblivio and Chat Blanc exist?) and even when rivals are introduced, they are eliminated rather quickly. Luka and Kagami lasted the longest compared to Nathaniel, Nino, Chloe and Lila, but even they barely got a couple of episodes to be in a real relationship before they were broken up with. HELL, Marinete and Adrien still had ship tease during a special where they were supposed to be dating their respective love interests.

    Lukanette and Adrigami have never been a proper threat to the endgame status of Love Square. Despite the attraction Marinette clearly had for Luka:

    Or how Adrien clearly enjoys spending time with Kagami:

    We all knew where it was going to go. 

    So why is that all of that not enough? Why do we now need to sit here and argue that Marinette and Adrien never liked Luka and Kagami in the first place? I’m not talking about whether or not they were in love with them or if they liked them the most out of their love interests - I mean, why do we need to argue over whether there were any feelings at all as though it contradicts the existence of the Love Square? It clearly doesn’t, never had, nor never will. 

    Them having feelings for other people isn’t a threat to your ship. Your ship was never threatened. So why do we need to eliminate the little the rivals had in the first place?

    #adrien rambles #adrien’s liveblog logs #so far gorgug and riz are the characters I am most interested and compelled by but I love all their little stories and backgrounds so far #but those two specifically had such sweet moments with their parents that makes me so tender #like the little song that gorgug’s parents sing and the little flower and his big life lessons #but also riz with his mom and that whole cereal bit lowkey almost made me shed a tear LMAO #idk it’s very entertaining so :-) do I sense new interest???

    In My Dreams (Ladrien)


    Adrien sees Ladybug at the ball and cannot resist dancing with her.


    I'd like to dedicate this to the five people on my dash who are starved for Ladrien content. Nothing but love for you.


    She was beautiful.

    At least, that’s what Adrien would think, if he could have thoughts and he wasn’t insanely captivated at the moment. Truth was, she was even more than that. She always had been.

    She was Ladybug, there in the flesh at this stupid Parisian ball that his father had put on. She was there for… Who knows what reason. Really, if he could just transform for five seconds, he would ask.

    He desperately wanted to ask.

    To bad he was stuck there as Adrien Agreste. The famous model garnering even more attention that a hero of Paris would have. He couldn’t transform, not now—

    But he could—If he was lucky enough—touch her.

    He could look at her and that cloth-made mask and wonder who she really was, take in the artistry of her gown that had everyone staring—Marinette made it, no doubt—and memorize the way she looked in something other than a superhero costume. He could pretend to know her in another way, if only for a moment.

    And it was stupid, and it was selfish, and it was everything he shouldn’t have done. But for just five minutes, he could pretend to be someone else, someone who Ladybug would let dance with her the way that he desperately wanted to. Someone who could talk to her outside of the mask and have those stupid, mindless conversations he always craved.

    Adrien Agreste was a selfish man, and yet…

    “Hi,” because there were no eloquent introductions in his repertoire, “if it isn’t too much, could I bother you to dance?” He’d repeated the proposition a hundred times before walking up to her, amazed that in this ball, for once, she was not the most important person in the room. No, she was somehow lost in an array of heroes and supermodels and bloggers and whatever else his father deemed moderately respectable.

    And really, when he was talking to her, it was easy to ignore the way that his father watched him in the background.

    She blushed a lovely light pink color that he’d wasn’t sure the origin for, but that he wanted to memorize and keep to himself for the rest of his life. Her hand touched his, devoid of the latex and leather that so often separated them, and her fingers slid into his far too easily. A part of him worried that she would realize why.

    Maybe a few years in the future when he finally told her his identity, she would look back at this moment and laugh. Maybe she’d realize how ridiculously excited he was at that moment, that he was fighting every natural reaction in his body to not present her with sweaty palms. Maybe she would realize that when he slid his hand around her waist his hands knew how to grip her just right because he had done it hundreds of times before and her body’s shape was practically implanted in his palms.

    Adrien swallowed as she drew close to him, one hand at his shoulder and the other tightening around his. Her blue eyes drifted up to meet his and that dusting of rose across her cheeks only became darker, a blush appearing across his own face to match it.

    “You don’t have to be nervous around me,” he said. “I’m just Adrien, but you…” She was so much more—to him, to Paris—God, he wished he could tell her, but those words died on his tongue, replaced by the need to hold her and only that. He had to focus on what little he had in the moments that he had it for.

    But it was like she knew that, that those fleeting, dreamlike moments were an anchor for him. They would be what he repeated in his head over and over again before he went to bed at night. Her cradled against his body, the two of them moving in perfect sync like they belonged together—like she was some creature that existed outside of his wildest dreams.

    “You could never be just Adrien to me,” she whispered.

    She had to make it better, didn’t she?

    What if noroo and plagg accidentally see each other in Agreste mansion then plagg will realize shadow moth was his owner’s father all along... how will Adrien react? How will chat noir tell ladybug and prove it? I have so many questions...

    + in season 2 kwamis were first to see reveal so maybe this is also foreshadowing for something like this

    Some say the world will end in fire,
       Some say in ice.
    —excerpted from "Fire and Ice", Robert Frost

    Ladybug's smirk isn't even vicious. Wouldn't even look vicious without the nightmarish argon glow outlining a butterfly mask.

    "What's wrong, Chat?"


    annotated chapters 1 and 2 for @mlwritersguild June challenge to create bonus content for a completed work:

    I'm trying to have every mention of fire, water, or temperature throughout this story do at least two things at once. In the epigraphs, it's setting the emotional temperature of the chapter, as well as whatever the poet intended; it's also worth reading the full poem from which each epigraph is drawn.

    Ladybug hurtles southwest along the rooftops, glance whipping every which way. Adrien trudges southwest along the street, hands in his pockets and head downcast, toying with his Marinette lucky charm and hoping—

    Of course the charm is in his pocket. Where else?

    She drops to the pavement before him. Adrien jolts: she draws his attention as she always does, magnetic. "Adrien!" she says, sounding startled. "What are you doing out so late? And no coat—" Adrien shrugs one shoulder and opens his mouth; Ladybug shakes her head. "No, listen, there's an akuma—I have to get you to safety," she says, scooping him up bridal carry before he can protest and taking off northwest. "And then catch up with Chat Noir; did you see where he went?"

    Adrien being out without a coat is something one might not pick up on first read as indicating it's cold out—it is; I was pulling from TimeAndDate.com weather data and sun/moon data for 2020 January 29 and 30, and it wasn't much above freezing that night—but one might indeed notice that, and observe that Adrien doesn't notice the cold. Not yet.

    Lukadrien: Your Hands Hold Home: Chapter Fourteen


    Read it on AO3: Your Hands Hold Home: Chapter Fourteen: Pirates

    Xavier-Yves Roth was actually a pretty decent guy once you got past the fact that his father had trained him wrong on purpose to be a self-absorbed, self-centered jerk.

    Thankfully, Luka had done all of the hard work for the rest of humanity and had been teaching XY for several years how to be a better person. The result was that Xavier-Yves was now pretty tolerable. He was still occasionally annoying and not the sharpest tool in the shed, but he tried to be a good person, and, most of the time, he succeeded.

    As XY hung around the Liberty and Adrien was exposed to him more and more, Adrien was surprised to find that XY was funny. Adrien honestly enjoyed going back and forth with him, trading jokes.

    In an alternate timeline, Adrien even thought that they could be friends. Unfortunately, in the current universe, Xavier-Yves definitely had a massive thing for Luka, and Adrien’s own embarrassing crush on his housemate was only growing by the day.

    Adrien had learned from anime that this “love rivals” status made a friendship between himself and XY impossible at this stage. Perhaps they could team up to thwart a third party’s attempts to steal Luka’s interest or maybe gradually grow closer if Luka rejected both of them, but, at this phase, they could only pretend to play nice in front of the object of their rivalry and secretly trade jabs behind Luka’s back.

    “Hey,” XY whined as Adrien stole the last strawberry off of the communal plate on the makeshift coffee table. “That was mine.”

    “I didn’t see your name on it.” Adrien smirked, reclining back into the couch cushions triumphantly.

    “You’re mean,” Xavier-Yves sulked, crossing his arms and sticking out his bottom lip. “Six-Strings, control your pet.”

    “Children,” Luka sighed, half in jest, half seriously, from the kitchen where he was cutting up more fruit. “Behave.”

    Adrien stuck out his tongue. “I’m a pirate now. I take what I want.”

    XY rolled his eyes, muttering, “Yeah, yeah. Rub it in that you get to live with him. You’re still just a G flat.”

    Adrien blinked uncomprehendingly. “What? What do you mean a G flat?”

    Xavier-Yves snickered softly, “If he’s a C, you’re a G flat—a diminished fifth.”

    Adrien jerked back away from his rival, recoiling at the sting of his words and what they implied.

    It was more than the words themselves. It was the fact that Luka and XY were close enough that Luka had told him what Adrien had said about Luka being middle C. It was that XY knew Luka’s Perfect Fifth nickname for Adrien.

    It felt like a violation of something Adrien had thought was sacred.

    “Now who’s the mean one?” Adrien hissed defensively.

    XY shrugged. “All’s fair in love and war, especially when you eat the last strawberry. I love strawberries.”

    “What are you two mumbling about?” Luka called to them, started to get worried at the comparative quiet.

    “Strawberries,” Adrien responded, putting on a brave face. “We’re out, and XY wants some more.”

    “Give me just a sec,” Luka replied, going to the fridge to grab another handful.

    He washed them and placed them on the plate with the rest of the snacks.

    “Here.” He set the platter down on the coffee table before taking a seat between Adrien and Xavier-Yves. “Don’t squabble. You two make me never want to have children.”

    Adrien and XY collectively winced.

    “Sorry,” Adrien murmured.

    “Yeah. Sorry. G Flat was just being a mega jerk. Totally un-dope,” XY sniffed indignantly.

    Luka rolled his eyes. “And you can’t ever let anything go, can you?”

    “He was harshing the vibes,” XY argued indignantly.

    “Prune, you’re twenty-two. He’s eighteen. Try to be the adult sometime, yeah?” Luka wearily scolded.

    Adrien bristled, grumbling, “I’m not a little kid.”

    “I didn’t say you were.” Luka playfully mussed Adrien’s hair in an attempt to smooth his ruffled feathers.

    The placating gesture worked until Luka turned and started rubbing XY’s neck.

    “Be good you two,” Luka commanded, a hint of pleading in his voice.

    Moodily, Adrien snuggled up to Luka, resting his head on Luka’s chest.

    Xavier-Yves retaliated by wrapping an arm around Luka’s shoulders and cuddling up.

    Giving up on trying to understand the strange feud his companions had going on, Luka suggested, “Let’s watch the movie now, okay?”

    “Sure,” XY easily agreed, starting to wiggle in excitement.

    “Sure,” Adrien echoed unenthusiastically.

    XY had been the one to recommend the film. He was into cars and wanted to show Luka what quality movies they made in the US (though, Adrien had no idea why).

    Luka had acquiesced to watching one film from the series in order to humor his friend, and Adrien ended up crashing the watch party because like hell was he going to let Luka and Xavier-Yves get all lovey-dovey on the couch, watching the movie alone.

    “This film is super ballin’. It’s my favourite out of all of them,” XY explained excitedly.

    “Who taught you to speak French?” Adrien snorted, still feeling vindictive over the G Flat comment. “The Académie Française would have a heart attack if they could hear you.”

    XY winced as if a bucket of cold water had just been thrown on his flame of enthusiasm.

    “Pst,” Luka whispered, giving Adrien’s shoulder a gentle squeeze. “He’s not a native speaker, Angel.”

    Adrien’s jaw dropped, and he sat up so fast he almost gave himself whiplash.

    “Oh my gosh. I am so sorry.” He immediately attempted damage control. “I had no idea. Your French is really amazing. I never would have known. I apologize. That was really rude of me. Please know I was just joking, and I’m very sorry.”

    Luka gave XY’s arm an encouraging squeeze.

    Xavier-Yves shrugged, not looking at Adrien as he rubbed at the back of his neck. “Eh. It’s okay. I mean, people have been giving me crap about it my whole life, so I’m kind of used to it. I’m not good at languages, and even though my mom was French, I only had to speak English in America, so I never learned French until after the divorce when me and my dad moved here when I was ten.”

    “Still, just because you’re used to it, that doesn’t make it any less wrong,” Adrien insisted. “It doesn’t make it hurt any less, so I’m really sorry for picking at a sore spot like that.”

    Slowly, XY turned his head to study Adrien’s expression.

    Xavier-Yves found sincerity there, and his smile gradually returned.

    “Okay. Apology accepted.” He stuck out his hand for a shake.

    Adrien readily complied, counting himself lucky for not having driven an even larger wedge between them.

    Luka smiled, pleased at the development between his two friends.

    It was then that Adrien vowed to be nicer to Xavier-Yves. He really wasn’t a bad person. In fact, Adrien begrudgingly liked him most of the time.

    The only thing keeping them from being friends was their mutual feelings for Luka, and Adrien was beginning to see that a rivalry between Luka’s friends was not winning either Adrien or XY any points.

    Adrien wasn’t a little kid. He could step up and be the mature one in this for Luka’s sake.

    “So…shall we watch the movie?” Adrien suggested. “I hear it’s ‘super dope’.”

    “So dope,” XY began to gush, giving Adrien the lowdown on the different cars used in the film.

    Luka’s smile widened as Adrien and XY finally began to get along.

    Like A Damn Sociopath Chapter 2

    Heyo! New chapter!

    Disclaimer: All songs sung by Marinette in this chapter and eventual new chapters do not belong to me. Every song I’m going to use belongs to Olivia Rodrigo. But in this story her album SOUR will be created and sung by Marinette.

    Characters belong to Thomas Astruc (even if he’s butchering the show) and other various creators.

    Plot is mine. I don’t appreciate stealing.

    Enjoy little lemon drops!



    Marinette was used to sitting in the back.

    She was used to sitting in silence and sketching alone.

    What she was not used to was having Chloé sit with her.

    The second Marinette walked through the doors, she noticed the blonde heiress sitting in the usually unoccupied seat next to her own, filing her nails.

    Despite their talk the day before, Marinette was thoroughly confused.

    Marinette sat quietly beside Chloé and gave the blonde a quizzical look.

    “What? You seemed lonely up here.”

    Marinette couldn’t help the aghast expression that crossed her face, she continued to say nothing as Chloé studied her.

    “Look, Dupain--Marinette, I can go if you want. It’s not like I really wanted to sit here anyway.” Despite her flippant attitude and annoyed expression, Marinette could see the insecurity in Chloé ‘s eyes. As the blonde stood to leave, Marinette grabbed her arm.

    “Wait!” Chloé turned to look at her, hope lighting up her sharp features. “I would like it if you sat here. I mean, if you want.”

    Oh god, please say yes.

    A week ago, if someone had told Marinette she would be silently praying that Chloé Bourgeois would sit with her, Marinette would have laughed in their face. Or maybe even thrown a croissant at them Now, she couldn’t help but hope that her sort-of-maybe-hopefully new friend would choose not to leave her.

    The blonde sat down with a small, almost imperceptible smile.


    That was four months ago.

    Now, Marinette and Chloé spent every waking second with each other. They sat together in the back making fun of Lila and her outlandish lies and sharing pastries.

    It was wonderful.

    For once in Marinette’s life, she wasn’t worrying about how much time she had to complete a demand from her classmates, whether it be cookies or dresses or new set designs. Chloé never asked for something ridiculously above the ravenette’s pay grade like her ex friends had done almost on a day to day basis. Chloé was helpful and smart and kind.

    Sometimes Marinette would share her designs with Chloé so the heiress could help out with a few problems Marinette would be stumped with.

    Somehow, despite being enemies in the past, the two got along like two peas in a pod.

    The friendship between them was refreshing and wonderful. Marinette no longer felt like she had to do everything on her own, she always had Chloé there to help with anything she could need. And it went both ways.

    When Chloé was having a particularly rough day, Marinette would bring the blonde her favorite honey scones and some new gossip about Lila’s newest fib.

    When Marinette was feeling down, Chloé would offer her a spa day at Le Grand Paris or a sleepover in her fancy suite.

    They became so close that Marinette revealed herself as Ladybug and Monarch--Chloé’s new identity using the bee miraculous--became a permanent part of Ladybug’s team.

    Chat Noir had been pissed, he refused to fight any Akumas or go on any patrols until Monarch was retired.

    But it was fine, Ladybug didn’t need him. She had a new team: Viperion, Ryuko and Monarch were the most efficient Miraculous Team to ever fight Hawkmoth. They were swift and trusted each other with everything they had. They moved like water and fought viciously and tirelessly.

    Later, when Marinette took Chat’s miraculous, she wasn’t even surprised to see Adrien Agreste. The boy was a coward and frankly an asshole on both sides of the mask. He had refused to stand up for Marinette when she needed him and refused to back down when Ladybug rejected him.

    He was unfit for the miraculous and for Marinette’s love.

    But it didn’t matter, the new Miraculous Team defeated Hawkmoth within months of assembling.

    And the whole time Marinette had been writing. Not in her diary but in a songbook.

    She wrote about her ex friends and how she felt when they rejected her.

    About Chat Noir and Adrien and her lost loves. The loves she now hated.

    She wrote about Chloé and how much her friendship helped and saved her.

    About her new team

    About Lila.

    About everything in her life, as both Ladybug and Marinette.

    And then one day, someone heard her singing.

    Jagged Stone. Marinette’s honorary uncle and occasional client for designs.

    She had been singing a rather sad song she wrote about Alya and the way that the girl had rejected Marinette’s friendship in favor of Lila’s.

    Called you on the phone today

    Just to ask you how you were

    All I did was speak normally

    Somehow I still struck a nerve

    Marinette was thinking about Alya. About the final call where the girl told Marinette they couldn’t be friends if she was just going to be jealous over Lila.

    You got me fucked up in the head, boy

    Never doubted myself so much

    Like, am I pretty? Am I fun, boy?

    I hate that I give you power over that kind of stuff'

    She had allowed Alya and the rest of her classmates to step on her for years. They demanded gifts and treats and dresses and other unreachable goals for Marinette to complete. She had bent over backwards twice a day to complete their backbreaking requests.

    Cause it's always one step forward and three steps back

    I'm the love of your life until I make you mad

    It's always one step forward and three steps back

    Do you love me, want me, hate me? Boy, I don't understand

    No, I don't understand

    Marinette didn’t get it. She had worked so hard to be a good friend, to give them anything they wanted. A banner for Alix’s and Kim’s bet? Done. A new dress for Alya’s date with Nino? Check. Four dozen cupcakes for a class picnic? Free of charge.

    And maybe in some masochistic way

    I kinda find it all exciting

    Like, which lover will I get today?

    Will you walk me to the door or send me home cryin'?

    She had cried herself to sleep every time any of her friends chose Lila over her. Chose fools gold over Marinette’s sparkling diamonds.

    And every time Marinette crawled back to them on her knees. She had begged them to take her back.

    It's one step forward and three steps back

    I'm the love of your life until I make you mad

    It's always one step forward and three steps back

    Do you love me, want me, hate me? Boy, I don't understand

    No, it's back and forth, did I say something wrong?

    It's back and forth, goin' over everything I said

    It's back and forth, did I do something wrong?

    It's back and forth, maybe this is all your fault

    And it was. It was her classmate’s fault. Marinette hadn’t done anything wrong. She had attempted to save them from Lila and her false promises only to be kicked to the side.

    Instead it's one step forward and three steps back

    And I'd leave you, but the roller coaster is all I've ever had

    Yeah, it's one step forward and three steps back

    Do you love me, want me, hate me? Boy

    I don't understand

    No, I don't understand

    Marinette stopped playing the piano Jagged occasionally let her practice on. Without the insane requests of all her ex friends, Marinette had a lot more time to do what she wanted. And she loved to play.

    Chloé always told Marinette she had the voice of an angel. “If you had seriously fallen from heaven, Mari, I wouldn’t be surprised.”

    Marinette wiped a few stray tears from her eyes and snapped her head up at the sound of clapping.

    “Holy cow, Little Rocker! I had no idea you could sing like that! Very rock ’n roll!”

    Jagged had a feral grin on his face as he and Penny walked to where Marinette sat behind the piano. “You have a beautiful voice, Marinette.” Penny said softly, moving to sit beside Marinette at the piano while Jagged jumped up to sit on the instrument.

    “We really need to get you up on stage, Little Rocker! I can see it now: Marinette Dupain-Cheng, famous throughout all of Europe! No! The world!”

    At this point, Marinette had turned a bright red, the color of a tomato. “I--uh what?”

    “Yeah, kid! How about you open for me at my next concert! That would be totally rock ‘n roll! Can we do it Penny?”

    Jagged was swinging his arms around, now standing on the piano. If she wasn’t so overwhelmed, Marinette would be wondering if he would break the piano. She hoped not.

    Jagged looked to his manager with large, puppy dog eyes. It would be cute if he weren’t a thirty year old man with spiky purple hair.

    Penny nodded, already checking her phone and calendar to see if they could. “I think that’s a wonderful idea, that is, if Marinette would agree to it.”

    The girl in question was frozen, shock overriding her system. “Me? On stage? Opening for you? Why? I’m not that good--I mean my songs aren’t very good and neither is my voice or--”

    “Oh come on, Little Rocker! You’re very rock ‘n roll! Pretty please?”

    Marinette bit her lip and thought for a moment.  Chloé would scream if she refused. Luka would insist she follow her dreams. And Kagami? She would carry her right back to Jagged if she said no.

    And Marinette? She wanted to do this. She wanted to sing. She loved it even more than designing. It helped her express herself in a way that no words could ever do.

    Marinette took a deep breath.

    “I’ll do it.”

    My top predictions for Miraculous Ladybug

    1. Marinette will meet past wielders

    2. WHEN Gabriel gets both miraculous he uses them to get Emilie back, but will lose Adrien somehow

    3. Gabriel WILL get both miraculous

    And my favorite theory

    4. Marinette will create a new miraculous

    Let's discuss!

    i wonder how would fandom react if marinette just suddenly started to get sidelined all of a sudden and show just decided to randomly pay attention to other characters

    #THAT'S how it felt for chat noir stans to suddenly see all this 'partnership' attention on alya all of a sudden #so before you say we're annoying maybe put ourselves in our shoes #i don't understand what's so surprising about people being disappointed that adrien has been sidelined this whole season when he's literally #the second most important character #i like alya too #but if adrien is suffering as a character because of her i WILL complain #i love alya getting screentime it was about time #but i don't understand why show needs to sideline their deuteragonist in order to make that happen #i'm so done #ml fandom salt
