The Brazilian Miraculous trailers be the most intense for the lightest of episodes 😭
timetagger production number was also 19 and chris was involved is there something there? alix getting her miraculous? bunnix? whoever the future hawkmoth is?
You will finally find what you have really been looking for for this very long time.
ok wait wait a minute wait hold on. this is gonna be SUPER rough type. Like literally just smashing it out stream-of-conscious style. but bear with me. I HAD A VISION OF THE IDENTITY REVEAL.
What if at some point Marinette and Luka get trapped in an akuma and he's like "look, just transform. there's no other way" and she's like "YOU KNOW???" so now Marinette knows Luka knows she is Ladybug.
but then maybe in the next episode or something Chat Noir and Ladybug are in a situation where they decide to "give up" but instead of giving up fake miraculous, they decide to strategically give up the real miraculous and track them back to hawkmoth. but this time they're wearing different miraculous (or maybe they get really, extra smart and Alya just uses the fox miraculous somehow?) anyway, they go to hawkmoth's lair. Chat Noir FREAKS OUT. Ladybug and Chat Noir find out Hawkmoth is Gabriel Agreste.
And Chat Noir is FREAKING OUT but doesn't reveal his identity. "You can't do this! What about your son!" And Ladybug is like "Oh no! aDRIEN!" And of course Hawkmoth reveals why he's doing this. Which makes Chat Noir hesitate long enough for Hawkmoth to escape...
Next episode, we have Sad Adrien at school and according to Nino, he's fine it's just his dad again. Anyway, Chat Noir doesn't show up to fight. He's nowhere to be found. Things look bad. Maybe Ladybug calls in Viperion to help and he says he'll intervene and go find Chat... and Marinette is like "YOU KNOW WHO HE IS TOO?" and when Viperion comes to chat, Adrien is little upset because "WAIT HOW DID YOU KNOW?" but he agrees to talk to her,
So thanks to Luka, Ladybug and Chat Noir meet to talk and he is like "I can't do this. What if Adrien doesn't want to lose his dad? What if Adrien misses his mom?" and Ladybug says they have to stop him for Paris and for Adrien. Maybe even lets it slip that she loves Adrien. "Adrien Agreste? What do you even know about Adrien? That he's the wealthy son of a fashion designer and a famous model for the Agreste brand?"
Ladybug says she knows "he's more than that", then huffs and tells him now is not the time to be jealous. And Chat Noir shrugs bitterly "I bet you think he's perfect." "Because he is!" He deflects by mentioning Adrien has never been akumatized so Hawkmoth probably won't hurt his own son "But we've saved Adrien from danger a LOT of times." So while Marinette starts to wonder why this is so personal to Chat.... Adrien starts to wonder if his father would intentionally harm him.
"Is that why you like him? Because you saved him all those times? Because I might point out you've saved me WAY more often than Adrien.... Anyway. I have to go. Sorry, I can't help you. I think... I think you should have this back." And he pulls a Miraculous New York and gives Ladybug his miraculous. At this point he's too afraid to reveal his identity, so he gives his miraculous back and runs away.
Anyway in the finale, Adrien confronts his father and maybe gets akumatized and says something about his father which makes Ladybug think Adrien KNOWS HIS DAD IS HAWKMOTH. Afterward, Sad Adrien tells his friends he's being sent away to England with Lila for reasons (is Hawkmoth's identity made known to the public? does he even still have his miraculous? Is Lila the new Hawkmoth and holding Adrien for ransom? Beats me if I know what's happening with plot. I'm here for the drama. I just know no one has figured out what to do about Gabriel's crimes. He's still free for some reason.)
What I do know is that Marinette misses Chat Noir and also knows Adrien is struggling and doesn't want to lose him when he's going through this. And she has talks with Alya about Adrien and Hawkmoth and she asks Marinette if Chat Noir could be Adrien. And Marinette actually considers it. She's not sure... but maybe. She talks to Luka and asks if he knows what happened to Chat Noir. He says it's not his place to say, just that Chat Noir is dealing with personal stuff (Marinette feels bad about it). Then he asks her if she'll miss Chat Noir or Adrien more. "First Chat Noir goes missing, and now I might loose Adrien too! Luka WHAT DO I DO?!" So Luka tells her she "you need to put it ALL out there. Your WHOLE heart. siNG yOuR mELoDy" (he is referring to her secret identity, but Marinette is DEEEEEEENSE). Marinette is worried about what Adrien will think of her, but Luka says "I think you already know how he feels about you... but there's only one way to find out for sure."
Until she goes to the train station to stop him. She tells him she loves him and his polite smile falters and he says the same thing Chat Noir told her, but slightly slightly differently "You? Love me?" (sigh.) "Everyone seems to love Adrien... Look, you're a good friend, Marinette... and I really like you. You're really awesome, and I'm glad you're a fan of mine. I just... Well, I think you might be confusing love for being my fan. I mean... I have a lot of fans that love me because I'm the son of a wealthy fashion designer and a model for the Agreste brand, but they don't really know me. They think I'm perfect, but that's just what my father wants people to see. Even the people at school think that's all I am. And people who say they love me, tend to... Well never mind. Can we please just be friends?" Even as the bells of recognition start to ring in her head, her eyes will with tears. Her natural reflex is to run, but she stays because she sees it now. The boy behind the mask. So she defends him against himself. "We... We can be friends, if that's really what you want... but you're wrong.... I know you're more than that." (Which also sounds familiar to Adrien but it doesn't fully click.) But it only becomes clearer to Marinette as she continues, "I... I know that you wanted to go to school to make friends. That you lent me an umbrella the day we met because you are a good person who cares about doing the right thing. I know that you're loyal to people, even if they hurt you. Until they hurt someone you care about. And I... I know that you miss your mom... " (Adrien looks sad) "-and that you're scared of losing your dad, even though he's.... he's not a very good person." (Adrien startles at that) "And I know that despite all that, you are kind and forgiving.... And I know that... And I know that.... when you were given the Snake Miraculous-" ("Wha-") "-I know you tried over and over to save Ladybug." ("How could you know that? Does she just go around revealing people's secret identities or something?") "She didn't tell me. And neither did you. I just know." ("Wha-?")
Lila strolls up like "Hey let's go. Get my luggage. We don't want to be LAAAATE FOR OUR SHOOT." And Adrien complies, but not without looking back in shock at Marinette who is next to tears. The doors close. Marinette turns away, and we hear the train close it's doors. Marinette sobs. And then she feels a hand and turns around. Adrien got off before Lila could stop him. ("How... How did you know all that, Marinette?") He knows how. "Because... Because I'm the one who gave you the miraculous." ("This whole time.... Ladybug?") "Yes, but there's one thing I still don't know for certain..." ("Why are you telling me this? Why now?") "Because I don't know who this belongs to." She pulls out the Cat Miraculous like it's the dang glass slipper from Cinderella or Ever After. "But I also have a feeling.... See, I know it belongs to someone really cool who makes me laugh with really bad puns and silly poses. Someone kind and good who stands against evil. A partner I trust to always have my back and to keep my secret. Someone I would miss if he went away... maybe to England? I also know one more thing... Now is not the time to be jealous of yourself... Chaton? I'm sorry it took me so long to see that we're stronger together."
IDK IDK THAT'S IT THAT'S ALL MY BRAIN GAVE ME AND THAT'S ALL THE FORMATTING NIGHTMARE YOU'RE GETTING.
Notice how Plagg barely has any salters? And that’s on being the least problematic character (after Fang ofc)
Alya Cesaire: Mr. Agreste, have you heard of the popular internet jokes about you dating Chat Noir?
Adrien Agreste: Yes I have heard of them, but if I were going to date any superhero it'd be Ladybug and not an overdramatic furry
Alya, who knows about Marinette's identity, already getting a headache: Mr. Agreste could you elaborate on your desire to date Ladybug?
So I may not be able to watch simpleman the day it releases :((
I love Luka man. He’s such a sweet boy.
How about i do anyway, just go back to your salting corner and fuck off
Please just... let people enjoy things. You're worse than fandom police.
Potential spoiler stuff, based on available information about future episodes...
So. I was reading about the unaired season 4 episodes and in one episode we're told that shadowmoths identity is revealed to someone. Then we're told that lila and felix come back in later episodes (as more than just background classroom scenes in lilas' case).
THEN it says the season finale has lila being centered.
This along with the titles of the last two episodes leads me to believe that lila is the next villain, which I have loathfully suspected and I am not happy.
I can't even watch the episodes she's centered in because she angers me so much. No freaking 14 year old should be that vindictive and powerful WITHOUT added power from a miraculous and now she's going to be the BBEG??
I may actually stop watching the show and that makes me very sad.
Anyway, am I just overreacting or are others upset about this possibility too?
(this is from that one feri live)
dude im so stupid the dots people have connected click for me months later. I remember when people were freaking out about the last scene I was like whatever and I legit filtered and muted sentimonster lmao. now im like wait hold on
I literally have no explanation for this
at first glance I thought that was her yoyo but it's her lucky charm does this matter at all rn no but we are deprived of content so this is what you get deal with it
I love the way Adrien looks at Marinette when she stumbles. He didn't move away from her himself because he definitely wanted to stay that way with her.
crack theory time
gabriel gets arrested in ep 24 bc i'm sure being shadowmoth isn't the only shady thing he's doing he is definitely doing some illegal business and whoever learnt his identity in episode 9 is pretending to be shadowmoth in the finale
wait chat lowkey reminds of someone 🤨🤨 weird
kind of like another blonde rich boy i know… i just cant put my finger on it
marinette has been more relaxed about her role as ladybug than she has ever been (she isn't acting ooc as some people say tho her behavior makes sense rn) seeing alya can step up to ladybug and leader duties if needed. im sure she's starting to actually let herself feel her negative emotions more and more bc she doesn't have the "but people need ladybug" worry anymore. bc of that I honestly don't think they need a big big reason to get mari akumatized anymore although I'm sure they will go down that road and that will be more angsty which I would never object against but honestly she could get akumatized over burnt macaroons and I would still think that is a progression of her character. cause her biggest problem is she takes on too much without caring about herself and is also her worst enemy when it comes to limiting herself so she needs to get angry and let it all out and think of herself first as a change. and maybe her akumatized self can show her how powerful she can be if she didn't limit herself.
