    Summary

    Yearning to escape his father's control, Adrien had moved out of Gabriel's estate to live among humans in the mundane world. It was lonesome, but he met Marinette. She has brought light and warmth into his otherwise dreary life... so, hopefully, he can keep Gabriel from finding out about his new roomie, and stop others from snitching.

    Summary

    "Today, a new article was released into the Seven Cats paper. A love poem. Many people are questioning who is CN and what have they planned next? Whoever this mystery rose is, has one hell of a secret admirer."

    When a love poem is released into the most popular blog in Paris, Marinette finds herself in quite a position.

    What's the harm in having a little fun?

    (In other words: Lila lies; Marinette has a pen pal; CN has a crush on Marinette)

    Summary

    What if it wasn't just a reverse crush, but a reversal of many things? What if Marinette was the new girl? What if she offended Adrien at their first meeting instead of the other way around? What if the rest of their classmates were more protective and not so gullible?

    Well that would be a new story entirely, now wouldn't it?

    Edit: rating bumped up to Mature for implied sexual assault

    Summary

    They say karma always comes back to bite you in the end. Madame Bustier's class learns this the hard way after Lila Rossi's lies are exposed and a bigger, badder bully takes her place.

    Henri LeRoi is the handsome new guy. His first day at Francois Dupont, he sets his sights on the beautiful, endearing and mysterious Marinette Dupain-Cheng. Which would be okay-if he wasn't a reverse Lila. He torments the rest of the class ruthlessly behind her back, and if anyone tries to tell Marinette the truth, he makes it look like they're the ones bullying him. Marinette is so convinced by Henri's gentlemen act and blinded by lingering feelings of resentment of the past that she believes everything he says and disregards her friends' claims completely.

    Adrien knows he made a mistake when he chose not to help expose Lila. He's determined to not make that same mistake twice when Henri starts manipulating Marinette into turning on her friends. The question is, how does he do that without Henri turning the situation on him and the class and making them look like bullies like he always does? And why does Adrien feel jealous of Henri whenever Marinette flirts with him?

    Summary

    It was unfair. It was simply unfair that Marinette and Adrien were together, but it was with Luka that she could dance without anyone judging or accusing her. It was Luka who could dance and walk around with her without anyone looking crooked or accusing her of sleeping with her boss for fame.

    Adrien took a deep breath and it was one of the hardest moment in his life to watch the love of his life dance with another man.

    Summary

    Adrien thought University would be a breeze. But between his coursework, live up to his family name, and girl issues, it turns out more than he bargained for. After Lila spoils the college radio program for him, Adrien decides to take matters in his own hands. He starts an underground radio station taking up the persona Chat Noir. The anonymity soon catches up to him, making him wish people would see the real him, especially a certain blue-eyed girl.

     

    “Marinette, Chat Noir won’t be showing up.”
    Her lip curled between her teeth and he wanted to kiss her right then and there, even though now wasn’t the right time at all. Blue eyes echoed back unanswered questions.

    “What–” Her voice stopped suddenly as she processed his statement. “What do you mean, ‘won’t be showing up’? We were supposed to meet now to go on a...” the words faded out, but her eyes continued to bore into his.

    “He’s not coming, because…” The lump in his throat was the last obstacle to getting the words out. Adrien knew that he had to tell her. “Because he’s already here. I’m Chat Noir.”

    Summary

    When Adrien realizes he needs to move on from Ladybug, Marinette suggests he try casually dating other women until he’s emotionally ready to be in a serious relationship with someone.

    Summary

    Adrien feels himself fall for the strong, lively girl in his class. Marinette feels herself fall for her rock, her partner in fighting crime. You know how it goes, will this duo successfully navigate school, their superhero lives, and feelings?

    A Reverse Crush AU inspired by "When Duty and Desire Meet" by EdenDaphne and midnightstarlightwrites. In this AU, pretty much everything is the same as the show, except the crushes being flipped. Starting out that is, excited to see where I can take it though.

    Summary

    (Fu never needed to hand out the miraculouses. Let’s say the butterfly miraculous had to be repaired too k.)
    AU where they're both famous. Gabriel never let Adrien go to public school. At 15 Mari accepted Audrey Bourgeois's offer to travel to NY and learn to be a designer. She and Chloe also ended up developing a tentative bond when Mari says she'll only go to NY if Chloe goes too. Five years pass. Mari and Chloe arrive back in Paris after studying (and modeling on Chloe's part) in all the fashion capitals - ready to officially launch the MDC brand in Paris. Mari and Chloe are Instagram famous for design and modeling so their arrival back in Paris is a BIG event after all those years. Adrien at this point has finally left the Agreste brand and needs to find new work (G cut him off) - bff DJ Nino thinks an old classmate of his might be hiring models 👀… Que Adrien showing up at Mari’s studio for model tryouts and convincing her to hire him bc it’s mutually beneficial. Mari is gonna kill Nino if this backfires. (Chloe is not pleased by Adrien’s interest in Mari but is distracted by her newfound “rivalry” flirtationship with Kagami.)

    Summary

    Adrien lives a quiet, predictable life running his floral shop. But a woman who wants to commission a very specific bouquet for a rival of hers throws a wrench into his carefully ordered life. He didn’t anticipate the rival would show up in his shop unexpectedly.

    He certainly didn’t expect to fall for her.

    Summary

    Inspired by Lunian (on Tumblr).
    Marinette knows that Alya is the new Ladybug, calling herself Ladybird, because she actually gave up the Miraculous. Alya gives Marinette the Fox Miraculous (which she keeps on her), but doesn't know that Marinette was the original Ladybug. Chat is just sad, generally. Reverse Crush.

    Trixx reveals something startling to Marinette, and Chat doesn't really know how to keep it in his pants. Luckily, Fennette is there to save the day.
