(blame her)

“He’s falling asleep… what do I do? What do I do, what do I do…”

im just remembering Evillustrator and something got me thinking

did Marinette ever tell anybody about her helping Chat Noir?

cause like, in the last scene Alya is asking Chloé about it Ladybug and Chat Noir (probably because Chloé told everybody) but then why Alya isnt asking anything to Marinette? Then Sabrina came and she didn’t know about Marinette going in the date with Evillustrator which could be a very plausible excuse to not be able to work with her.

But Marinette didnt tell anything

Now my point is

If Marinette never told anything

there was no way Adrien could have known about it

his question came really out of nowhere (except for us, but because we know the truth)

so (deep breathe)

Mari, my sweet innocent and very dense daughter,

how you didnt notice that?!

  • betty after kissing veronica: is awestruck, can't bring herself to pull away after veronica has ended the kiss, literally looks like she just had a religious experience, doesn't understand what is happening around her because her head is still light after this magical moment, looks at veronica like she just changed her life
  • betty after kissing jughead: car
Little Even and Sana things :))))
  • Sitting cross-legged on the floor, listening to music and discussing Isalm together
    • Bonus: Sana answering questions Even has about it, because he’s never had anyone – other than Mikael, who he doesn’t talk to anymore – who is so willing to openly talk to him about it
  • Texting each other bits from the Qur’an which they find particularly moving, then discussing it, and the texting turns into hours and hours and paragraphs upon paragraphs of them just…discussing it
  • -Sana sharing little details of her life with Even, like how she sometimes feels really lonely, or how she doesn’t get on with Jamilla. Even doesn’t necessarily say anything, he just listens to her and nods; tries to be as understanding as he can, and just the fact he’s sat there, listening, trying to understand, willing to understand, makes Sana feel a bit better already
    • It gets to the point where Even becomes someone Sana can really trust; who she can talk to and confide in, because he just understands her that bit better than her other friends
    • Sometimes, after a particularly bad day, she’ll find herself calling Even, and she’ll just rant and rant and rant, and Even listens and listens and listens, and afterwards – even if Even hasn’t actually said that much – Sana feels a little lighter
  • After a while, Even opens up to Sana about his bipolar disorder. He tells her that he got into the Qur’an just before a manic episode, and that no one seems to believe his interest in it was genuine; that he’d always been told it was just a manifestation of his illness
    • That night, Sana spends hours and hours googling bipolar disorder, because she really wants to understand Even, too
    • She ends up telling him that whoever told him that his interest in the Qu’ran was disingenuine was talking bullshit, because from what she can see, bipolar disorder doesn’t really work like that; it can intensify your passions but doesn’t really change what you’re passionate about
    • And Even really can’t express how much that means to him; it means so so much, that all he can do is just nod and smile, and he wants to thank her, but he can’t quite find the words. It’s okay, though, because there’s this silent understanding passing between them; they don’t always need words to communicate - they can express how they feel through little knowing glances and nods
  • DRAGGING PEOPLE TOGETHER. Oh GOD, does this happen. They’re this powerful little educational duo; they have different strategies, of course, in tackling ignorance – Sana is slightly more aggressive, whereas Even is much more…passive aggressive, but together?? People need to take a seat
    • One day, it comes out that Even’s showing an interest in the Qur’an, and someone makes a snide comment – says, “What the fuck, you’re white, you can’t be a Muslim”, and Even kind of looks at the floor, a little…unsure; doesn’t know what to say, and that’s where Sana steps in, saying, “Islam is a religion, Einstein, anyone can follow a religion if they want to”
    • And sometimes Even will step in too; when Sana is tired, when she can’t quite bring herself to be her normal, firey self, he’ll step in and shut people down…and they can just read each other, make each other feel better, and make sure no one – absolutely no one – brings the other one down or makes them feel bad or scared or embarrassed
    • When it’s less explicit - when the ignorance is more subtle - they don’t necessarily call people out on it. Instead, they’ll share little knowing glances; roll their eyes at each other and laugh a little, smile a little, as if to say, this person is chatting shit, I know it, you know it, you’re not alone, I see it too, and I’m here with you

To conclude: Even and Sana have the potential to have a beautiful, beautiful friendship and I am SO READY for it to rise in S4.
