    in retrospect, it was a little over the top for ladybug to tell chat noir to 'kiss her stupid'. marinette isn't sure she could handle that from adrien.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I’ve reread this so many times and I didn’t bookmark it until now which means my brain cell wasn’t working for sure. Some quotes:

    “Closing her eyes, she unfolded the memory, like a lover's shirt. Pressed her face into it. Took its essence in deeply but quickly so as not to waste the scent.” <— who even writes stuff that good?? Like, wow.

    “Where two arms wrapped around her middle, and she was drawn into a chest, into an embrace, into the scent that clung to her hair and skin all of last night.

    ‘Hey.’ Adrien nosed her ear. ‘I love you.’” <— ITS SO SOFT UGH THEYRE IN LOVE THEYRE IN LOVE THEYRE IN LOVEEEE

    Summary

    Adrien remained quiet for a moment, still spinning his ring around and around his finger. “The other day,” he croaked. Swallowed, tried again. “The other day Kagami basically told me that I’m…I’m always lying. To everyone. About…about me. And who I am. A-And I…I know she’s right. She is.”

    Nino pressed his lips together. “Your dad is harsh dude, you gotta lie sometimes to chill.”

    “Not just him,” Adrien whispered, so quietly that Nino could barely hear him. “To you. To my friends. To myself.”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Heartbreaking, beautiful, should start the movement of #LetAdrienHaveAnEmotionalSupportFriend2K21

    Some quotes:

    "Nino wasn’t sure if it was how he’d said it or the sentence itself, but the second the words left his lips, Adrien shuddered, and suddenly he was crying. Like full on meltdown crying, the likes of which Nino had only seen when Alya had come to him the day prior sobbing about Marinette breaking up their friend group.

    In their year of friendship, Nino had never seen Adrien cry. Never. He’d seen him frustrated, upset, concerned, anxious, but he’d never seen him cry." (Hi I broke here)

    “'I don’t know who I am,' Adrien said, now fidgeting with his fingers instead of his ring. 'I-I don’t…everything I am, everything I do is a lie, Nino. I’m a model at home, I’m a model at school, and when I’m not a model I…I don’t know what I am. And when I try to be who I think I am, I learn its just…it’s just another act.'” (oh poor baby 😭😭)

    "Adrien turned their hands around so that his ring glinted in the sunlight.

    'I’m Chat Noir.'

    Nino’s breath caught in his throat and he pulled back just enough to stare at Adrien, searching his tear streaked and puffy face, seeing the sincerity in his eyes. He let his gaze dip, found the kwami he was searching for peeking out from Adrien’s jacket, and let his breath escape." (YESSSSSS)

    “'I don’t know…who I am anymore,' Adrien choked into Nino’s shoulder, his fists clenched in his t-shirt. 'But I…I know that I can’t do this without you.'

    Nino shut his eyes and cupped the back of Adrien’s head. 'You don’t have to anymore, dude. You never did.'” (my heart is broken then made whole again all at once)

    Fav chapter: 6

    7: "Instead, both her and Adrien had watched in shock as her papa slid money over to her maman.

    'As owners of this bakery, we are not oblivious to its innerworkings,' her maman had said, beaming grin on her face as she took the money. 'With you two as close as you were, it was only a matter of time before you two got together. I guessed it would happen during the trip, but Tom thought it would happen after. So I won.'”

    Summary

    Now, in the quiet light of dawn, looking at the boy she was trying so hard not to love, the expression so close, yet so far, popped into her head and she found herself curling inward. Yet, despite the sadness welling up in her chest, she couldn’t take her eyes away. He was beautiful, lying there looking like peace personified.

    With a sigh, she turned and began shuffling away from Adrien…

    Only to be stopped by Adrien’s outstretched arm.

    “Stay,” He whispered, and Marinette’s heart must have decided dawn was the perfect time for a salsa dance.

    -

    Adrien accidentally cuddles Marinette in his sleep. From there, feelings and misunderstandings alike begin to spiral out of control.

    Or: Adrien finally Realises with the help of a very disgruntled florist.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This was perfect and beautiful. Adrien cuddling Marinette in his sleep was honestly really cute, but Marinette's inner turmoil of "it doesn't mean anything" was heartbreaking. Then Adrien fixing things and realizing "oh my gosh I love this girl" made my heart whole. Some quotes:

     

    "Reaching out a hand, Adrien said. 'Ah no, this person- she’s a friend. A very good friend for sure, but I hurt her by mistake and I,'- he began to panic again- 'I don’t want to lose her. She means so much to me. But we’re friends. So red roses will make her think… I don’t want to give her the wrong impression and mess up even more than I already have.'

    If Adrien had thought the florist was shooting him a look before, he was wrong. The furrowing of those bushy eyebrows made Adrien feel more under scrutiny than he had at all of his photoshoots combined." (All hail the wise florist)

     

    “'Sounds like she cares about you more than you think she does,' he said." (Listen to the wise florist, Adrien!!)

     

    "Adrien got to his feet too, his legs like jelly. The last rays of the setting sun hit Marinette’s window and filled the room with a soft, surreal glow.

    You’re more beautiful than any flower could possibly be, he thought, then caught himself. Wait, what?" (This boy's in LOVE)

     

    “'Why go through all this trouble for me?'

    The ground felt like it was opening up.

    Adrien had no idea how to answer that question because, truth be told, he’d never expected her to ask something like it.. Until Marinette pointed it out, he hadn’t even realised himself.

    He did treat her differently."

     

    "Adrien just hadn’t known it until now.

    'Home.'” (oh my heart!! I'm gonna cry)

     

    "Swallowing down the last of his fear, his trepidation, Adrien lifted his hand and rested it against Marinette’s cheek. It was a feather-light touch, one she could easily leave. She stayed put. 'I can’t treat you the same as everyone else. You mean more to me.'"

     

    "His love for Ladybug was an adventure. His love for Marinette was home.

    'If you want me to treat you the same as everyone else, say the word and I’ll do so forever,' he promised. 'But if you want me to treat you differently. If you want me to treat you how I really feel about you, I will prove to you how special you are to me. Every day.'

    Marinette leaned into his hand and his thumb dared to stroke her cheek, marvelling at the softness.

    'That- that sounds like a love confession you know,' she said.

    Adrien nodded. 'That’s because it is.'

    And then he kissed her." (Ok I'm gonna cry now)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The friendship between Felix (PV Felix not canon Felix) is honestly great! Poor Marinette akumatized after Lila played the class yet again, Adrien being oblivious as heck, Felix trying to get some sense into him, Felix being the only good friend... Chapter 4 is the best so far. Quotes from that chapter:

    “'Of course she does! No one can not like you!' Nino said as he wrapped an arm around Adrien’s shoulder and guided him to the door of the classroom. 'You’re like pudding! And everyone likes pudding, right?'

    Adrien looked uncertain, remembering the less than social attitude the other version of Marinette had towards him this morning. And she at least didn’t seem as… unhappy as this one. 'I...guess?'

    'Great! Now go in there and show her what pudding is made of!'

    A couple of the classmates winced though tried to hide it. Felix openly slapped his forehead in exasperation.

    Adrien just blinked, looking confused.

    'But it’s just a milk protein. Unless you’re talking about pudding mix—'" (I had the same reaction as Felix)

    “'You don’t change weeds by killing roses, Agreste. You don’t help bad people by letting them destroy good ones. And Rossi won’t become a better person if you keep giving her incentive to continue her games.' Because that was very much what this was to her. A game for her to play until she got caught or lost interest." (Dang the whole quote is just really good)

    “'You were another we couldn’t please,' she snapped, confirming his thoughts, and was possibly the most venomous he'd ever heard her.

    Turning to her, he said, 'I don’t want you to please me.' She faltered a little, and he continued. 'I don’t make friends easily or often, so you being a friend is enough. I don’t expect you to bow to my whims just as you don’t expect me to do the same for you.'” (Felix being the only good friend)

    "'Whether you said yes or no, I wanted it to be because it was what you wanted. Not because you thought you had to since it was what your friends wanted.' She had done enough, after all, and deserved appreciation and praise, not more expectations. But how to explain that at the time? When tensions were high? When she was stressed and he was only more frustrated because of it?

    He had wished that it had been someone else in his place at that time. Couffaine. Agreste. Even Cesaire. Any of them could have helped better than he had. For his part, he hadn’t even realized the effect he was having. Or that he even would have an effect.

    Because...

    'I just didn't consider that I would count among that number....'

    That she would consider him such a friend that his opinion would matter so much to her."
    (Of course she cares, you're friends!!)
