Marinette was laying in her bed. She strolled through her photos of her and Luka on her phone. She didn't bother deleting them when they broke up. Mostly because she is still in love with him.
She clicked out of her gallery. She opened her messages and looked at the last conversation she had with. She felt embarrassed that she called him Adrien. "He's too amazing. Honestly, I don't deserve him." Marinette thought. She started to text him.
M: I miss you.
"Why...did I send that?".
Marinette set her phone on the bed. " oh my god..why the hell did I send that!" She started to freak out a bit. "Is everything okay?" One of them said, "I texted Luka!"
Tikki flew over to her with a cookie in her tiny hands. "I don't think it's that bad." Marinette sighed. "Oh, you're right." Marinette heard her phone buzz and went to grab it.
She looked at her messages to see Luka responded.
L: I miss you too. Is there a reason why you suddenly texted me?
M: It was an accident.
L: No need to lie, Mari.
M: I hope it's not too much to ask but I come over?
L: Of course.
M: I'll see you soon
Marinette quickly got dressed out of her pajamas.
She grabbed a pink shirt and pink shorts. She quickly got dressed and grabbed her purse.
Marinette shoved her phone in her purse and started to run out the door. Tikki sighed and quickly followed her and hid in her purse.
When Marinette arrived at his home and texted Luka.
She saw Luka walk towards her. She felt pretty anxious. "I'm sensing something is wrong?"
Marinette gazed at his cyan eyes. "Luka.."
She felt tears fall down her cheeks.
Luka wrapped his arms around her.
"It's okay. I'm here." He whispered. Marinette pulled away. "I'm sorry. I just really miss being around you."
Luka grabbed her hand and kissed it. "I miss being around you too. Is that why you wanted to talk?"
Marinette blushed. "I don't want you to wait for me forever but I don't want to let you go."
"I am willing to wait a long time if it means I can be with you. Because. I love you Marinette. I can't see myself loving anyone else. I.." He put his hand on her cheek. "I only want you, my melody."
"Luka.." She closed her head and kissed him. He closed his eyes and kissed her back. He pulled away and opened his eyes. Marinette opened her eyes and blushed. "I'm sorry. Luka. I think it's time I tell you the truth. I told Alya this and I probably shouldn't tell you but. I want you to know."
"You don't have to tell me. I understand." Marinette started to fiddle with her hands. "I'm Ladybug." Luka hugged her. "I'm glad you trust me." Marinette lay her head on his shoulder.
"Luka. I didn't want to leave you, but I don't want Shadowmoth to hurt you." Marinette pulled away from the hug and gazed into his eyes.
"If it's okay with you. Would you be my girlfriend again?" "Yes. I hope you don't mind but can I stay over?" Luka chuckled and took her hand. "Of course." They both walked on the boat and headed downstairs. "Juleka is sleeping. So we got to be quiet." Luka whispered.
Marinette nodded. Luka walked towards his bed quietly while holding Marinette's hand. He lay on his bed.
Marinette took off her shoes and got on the bed. She smiled and wrapped her arms around him. "I love you so much, Luka." Luka kissed her neck.
"You already know I do too. We should go to sleep." Marinette lay her head on his chest and wrapped her legs around his. "You're so adorable." He whispered.
"Shush," Marinette muttered and closed her eyes. Luka started to hum a song in her ear. Marinette fell asleep. Luka stopped humming and listen to her breathing before eventually falling asleep.
Name: Marinette Dupain-Cheng/Princess Justice
MO: Losing everything to derogation and dishonor by the lies of Lila Rossi.
Powers: Swordsmanship, Blade Blasts, Judgement Stare, Justice Knighting
-Powers: Levitation, Weighing of Judgement, Tractor Beam
Context: Basically, Lila has been up to her lying conniving tricks again, and it's taken a huge toll on Marinette's relationships and good-standing with everyone. Hawkmoth has gotten to her as she's sewing and akumatized through the fabric she was using at the time, which became her blindfold. And yes, Marinette did resist, but her negative feelings were too much at the time, and no she does not have her earrings as she gave them to Tikki as quickly as she could before it was too late (the artist was just too lazy to draw all of that out).
Do you think Marinette would stay as Ladybug if Cat Noir never appear? Like what happened in most Enemy AU fic plot. Marinette still a Ladybug, going solo despite there's no Cat Noir and therefore no encouragement talk from him like the one he did in Origin.
I think so. Ladybug took back the earrings because Alya needed her, not because of Chat. And she may be more uncertain, have a lot more anxiety and be closer to breaking than in canon, but with her attempt to pass on the earrings to Alya having backfired and there not being anyone else to fight the supervillains, I don't think she'd have much of a choice. She might be insecure and wondering whether she can really do this, might think that someone else should be chosen, might wish that someone else had the earrings, but she wouldn't just stop fighting and let Hawkmoth wreck things indefinitely.
After meeting Adrien, Ray becomes a very huge support. She even buys his signature scent. She hates it though because it doesn't actually smell like him. So instead she just keeps it on display just to show how much she cares.
Ray loves to dress him up. Not in super fashionable things but cosplay with him. She totally makes them really elaborate things for them to wear when they go out so no one knows it's them. Though they still get stares.
On the rare occasion they get time off, Ray makes him take her around to show her the cool places. Even though he has taken her to the tourist places multiple times she gets excited every time and they take extremely cheesy photos together.
Ray loves to make snacks for Adrien especially after he gets out of the hospital.
what if plagg can give adrien some kind of substitute for his arm?? like one of those prosthetics but magical? and so to all the civilians, chat noir never lost an arm, because it's covered by the suit.
but if adrien just suddenly lost an arm, no explanation, what would he do?? marinette and gabriel probably know his identity, but what about everyone else?? further cause for identity shenanigans?
tbh!! Despite all of the other “blonde boys that fuck up their right arms and have dead moms and are child soldiers/heroes” having magical or high-tech robotic arms, I actually prefer that Adrien never gets one! I saw someone mention that Max could theoretically build him one, and other people have mentioned miraculous wiz biz, but I think it’s still interesting to have a disabled character whose disability isn’t solved fictitiously.
As for his identity, I imagine that whatever event involving Hawkmoth removing Adrien’s arm landed Gabriel Agreste in prison or death lol. So with no more supervillain to fight, it might not be as much of a concern if people figure out his identity.
Marinette, Nino, and Kim all came to the City of Freedom from the neighboring nation, and went their separate ways to pursue what they wanted. Before they arrived, Nino already had his Hydro Vision and Marinette her Dendro one, with Kim earning his upon their arrival to the city during the first attack of the dragon. He was the first person Alix gave a vision to
Nino, an alchemist using a bow, who's working with the City's alchemist Alya to further both their studies. Alya with her pyro sword, who grew up hearing tales of the mountain left unconquered and wanting to unearth it's secrets
Kim, with his new Anemo vision and his claymore, joins the knights. Most of his jobs end up having him assist the librarian, Max. Max, who studied at the Sumeru academy and wishes to learn all he can of the Archon's and the old war, with his catalyst and Cryo vision
Marinette joined the adventurers guild, using her polearm to search around for new ingredients to send home to her parents. For a long time she does odd commissions with random others, filling holes in teams as they appear, until a mysterious stranger walks out of the forest
Another adventurer with the guild is Rose. Rose, who has trouble finding teammates because of her explosive pyro vision and catalyst, spends most of her time in Juleka's tavern listening to Luka's stories and being in awe of all they've done
Sabrina, the Knight's cavalry captain, born of a long line of knights. She works mostly behind the scenes and with Chloe herself, so most of the citizens no nothing of her abilities. The glowing Cryo vision at her side distracts from the accuracy of her skilled bow shots
The closest to a local celebrity they have is a young idol who not only sings, but can semi accurately predict the weather. Aurore, with her hydro vision and sword, favourite of many, as long as she stays correct
Nooroo is Marinette’s first miraculous in this au. Marinette was in Tibet when she found Nooroo, the kwamis are still themselves but their are damaged. Nooroo told Marinette everything; the miraculous, the order of the guardians, etc.
Marinette promised Nooroo that she’ll help him find his friends, unfortunately, someone else happened to overhear the conversation and tried to steal Nooroo with The Peacock Miraculous. The two of them managed to escape, and are now on a race with their villain to find the rest of the miraculous.
Marinette can copy the Butterfly miraculous just by wearing it, she can read emotions and communicate through telepathy. When using the miraculous, she is called Mariposa.
“I dislike when people get mad about Ladybug praising Alya about breaking free from Hakwmoth’s control when Chloe “did it first”, because 1). Ladybug doesn’t know that! And 2). The situations are totally different! Alya broke free while she was akumatized and Chloe prevented herself from getting akumatized. It might be a bit similar, but it’s not completely. Why can’t we just praise both these badass girls for basically telling Hawkmoth to F-off lol?”
