"When we were four years old, Chat used to ask me to do his hair-"
"Queenie," Chat whined.
"-and he threw a fit if he didn't have at least 3 butterfly chips-"
"QUEENIE!" he hissed.
It all hit Marinette at once: all the childhood stories, the fact that they were both missing a mom, that Chat had recognized Queen Bee on her first trip out, the sheer physical similarities (they were both tall, and skinny, and blond, and oh she was an idiot-)
Chat Noir and Queen Bee are twins.
When Ladybug suffers a near-fatal accident and is presumed dead, it is up to Adrien - who has discovered Ladybug's secret - to help her through her painstaking recovery and reacquaint her with herself. All this while trying to save Paris on his own without losing himself in the process.
Marinette sobbed into her hands as she recalled Chloé’s hurtful words, each and every one of them.
“You’re nothing! You’re not even worth yourself, much less your so-called friends! Don’t you see they just hang out with you because they pity you?! You’re worth the dirt under my feet, Marinette Dupain-Cheng. And you have no right to speak to me like that, you pathetic little brat. You don’t even have the right to speak to anyone! Just keep your stupid thoughts and ideas to yourself because nobody wants to hear them!”
After a big fight with Chloé, Marinette finds herself sobbing on her bed. The words hit her deep down. And before she knows it a dark Akuma comes fluttering in, ready to introduce her to Hawkmoth...
- Part 1 of Air Series
After a reveal so shocking it rocks the core of Paris itself, the villain Hawk Moth is finally defeated...at a great personal cost to heroes Ladybug and Chat Noir. With the city safe, they go their separate ways, returning to the lives they were forced to put on hold since receiving their Miraculous.
Now, seven years later, Marinette Dupain-Cheng is on the rise, studying at the fashion college of her dreams by day, working at her dream internship by afternoon...and occasionally moonlighting as Ladybug by night. This routine is set so firmly in place that, once it's shattered by an old-yet-new enemy, and the reappearances of a cold friend and a hot partner, the whiplash threatens to send Marinette spiraling down into chaos.
As Ladybug, she can do anything...but soon those limits will be tested, whether she is in or out of the costume.
