“Dude! You caught the bouquet!” Nino exclaimed, looking at Adrien in awe and respect.
“I am aware of that,” he said, adjusting the arrangement before swinging them over his shoulder like they were a suit coat.
“Looks like your best man is a double,” Alya piped in.
“What do you mean by that, my dear, sweet wife?” Nino asked, grinning at his new bride.
“He’s a catch that can catch,” she joked.
“Oh stop that, you two. This is your day. You can worry about my love life tomorrow,” Adrien laughed, giving his best friend a pat on the back.
“I hope it won’t be too long before we get to see you in a church again,” Alya said.
“I would need to get a girl first, now wouldn’t I?”
“Well, maybe if you’d stop being married to your work you’d notice the girls around you who want to be with you.”
“Yes, because all I want in life is a girl whose goal is to marry rich,” Adrien sighed, glancing at the bouquet. He knew Plagg would tease him about it if he brought it home with him, as though it were proof that he couldn’t get over his teenage love for Ladybug.
“Oh! Marinette!” Alya exclaimed, gesturing her Maid of Honor to join her.
“Looks like the squad’s back together,” she smiled, nodding at Adrien in greeting. He had left to study in New York soon after graduation years ago, and she hadn’t seen him in person until today, despite him being the best man. She knew she’d be staying up late with Tikki to talk about it.
“It’s been a while, hasn’t it?” Adrien said, leaning in to kiss Marinette on the cheek. “Three years? Four?”
“I don’t think I’ve seen you since Hawkmoth disappeared,” she smiled.
“I’m convinced that he’s Ladybug,” Nino cut in.
“I’m sorry?” Marinette and Adrien turned to him in surprise.
“He’s joking,” Alya said, nudging her husband in the ribs. “Adrien disappeared when Ladybug did, but Chat Noir’s been seen around the city looking for her.”
“I’m only half-serious,” Nino said. “I think Adrien would make a beautiful girl.”
“Yes, well, my modeling days are over,” Adrien said, pointing to a scar on his jawbone.
“Where… did you get that?” Marinette suddenly cut in.
“He won’t tell me. Every time I ask he changes the story,” Nino said, rolling his eyes.
“Will you excuse me? I have to use the bathroom,” She said, rubbing her temples. Before anyone had the chance to answer she had fled the scene, feeling the air escaping from her lungs.
“Are you alright?” Tikki asked, flying out of Marinette’s handbag.
“Tikki, did you know?”
“Did I know what?”
“That Chat is in Paris. That he’s looking for me.”
“No, I didn’t know that he was looking for you…”
“But I knew he’s in town.”
“Why didn’t you tell me?”
“I only knew because I saw him as a civilian.”
Marinette froze as she heard her kwami’s words. “You…” she began. “You know who he is? Why didn’t you tell me?”
“It wasn’t too hard to figure out. Besides, he’s at this wedding.”
“What do you mean? He’s here? As a civilian? We’re… friends?”
“You were, at one point.”
“Why is he looking for me?”
“He’s in love with you.”
“You still like Adrien.”
“That’s…” Marinette’s voice trailed off as she realized she couldn’t fight the truth.
“Do you want to meet him?”
“I…” Marinette’s voice shook. She missed her partner terribly, but she was scared to meet him after all these years.
“Do you want me to get him?”
“…What?” Marinette gasped, astonished at her little friend’s proposition. “Tikki! What if someone sees you?”
“You could just walk out as Ladybug.”
“No way! I haven’t transformed in years!”
“Alya would like it.”
Marinette sighed, knowing Tikki was right- A Ladybug appearance would make her best friend’s wedding day even more miraculous. “I…” Her voice trailed off. “How will I know it’s him?”
“He’ll let you know. He’s been waiting for you all of these years, you know.”
She set down her bag and looked in the mirror, her earrings catching the light. She couldn’t bear to take them off, even when she slept. She thought about her time as a teenager, running away in the middle of the night to save Paris with a man she loved by her side. She had often wondered if she had fallen for him after they parted ways, but perhaps she just missed his companionship. He was her most precious person, after all.
She felt the all-too-familiar warmth encompass her as her dress turned red and her false lashes into a mask. She glanced into the mirror, expecting to see her teenage crime-fighting outfit but was surprised to see something see something different- a red dress with black spots with matching gloves. She felt encouragement in her chest to go out the bathroom door, one step at a time.
Adrien felt Plagg sneeze from the flowers and excused himself from the room, hoping no one had heard him. “You okay in there, bud?” He asked.
“Why did there have to be daisies in there?” Plagg whined, rubbing his nose.
“My scar is hurting again,” Adrien sighed, touching his chin.
“I’m not surprised. She’s here, after all.”
Adrien froze at his kwami’s words. “‘She’? As in…” His voice trailed off, a mixture of excitement and fear. “How do you know?”
“I can feel her kwami.”
Adrien gulped for air as he felt his throat close. Ladybug’s here? At Nino’s wedding? She’s a friend of Nino or Alya? “Plagg… do I know her personally?” He asked, his voice shaking.
“You went to high school together.”
He felt his legs give out beneath him and hit the ground. Ladybug went to high school with him. She was around his age. They had probably talked between classes, or at least seen each other in the hallways. “…Do you… think that she ever recognized me?” He asked.
“I dunno. I don’t really care either way.”
“Plagg! I need you to-” Adrien was cut off by screams from the dance floor. He immediately bolted out, his hand wrapped around his kwami in case he needed to transform. What he saw, however, surprised him much more than any Akuma he had ever fought.
Alya was wrapped around a girl in a black and red dress, sobbing.
Ladybug. His air escaped him and he forgot how to breathe. After all of these years, after all of the nights running out into the city as Chat Noir trying to find her, there she was… in a dress that would make his father jealous. He moved as though he were possessed, running towards her.
“Can you believe it, man? Ladybug showed up for the wedding!” Nino said, slapping Adrien on the back and back into consciousness. This was no place to reveal himself.
“She’s more beautiful than I remember,” He whispered.
“I’m sorry, my dude. I didn’t catch that.”
Adrien moved towards her as she broke away from Alya, ignoring his best friend. “Ladybug,” He said, placing his hand on her’s shoulder. She stiffened at his voice and whipped around at the sound of his voice. Her eyes grew wide as she looked at him and he knew that she recognized him.
He knew that she realized, in that moment, he was Chat Noir.
He leaned in towards her, heart racing, and placed his hands on the small of her back and her neck. “I’ve missed you, my Lady,” he whispered in her ear.
She froze at his words and looked up at him in awe. “Chat?” she whispered, drawing herself to his chest. “You’re… Adrien Agreste?”
“I’m…” She was at a loss for words, tracing the scar on his cheek- the proof that Hawkmoth got away all those years ago. “Had I known you were so close to me all this time, then I could have spent my nights these last few years differently.”
“I’ve missed you too, my Lady.” He kissed the back of her hand. “May I have this dance?”
“Of course, Chanton,” She smiled. It was the most honest smile she had given in years. Even without his mask, he was the man who loved her, flaws and all, to the point that all of her anxiety melted away with his Cheshire grin. “But you know what would make our friends even happier?”
“What would that be, bugaboo?”
“If you slip away and transform into Chat Noir.”
“Only if you promise not to leave at midnight.”
Ladybug giggled and bit back a joke about being his princess. She was so happy to see Chat again, alive, that he was the same person as Adrien Agreste hadn’t quite clicked in yet. Besides, he didn’t know that she was Marinette Dupain-Cheng.
“What just happened?” Alya exclaimed, pouncing on her idol as Adrien walked away. “Why are you here? What were you two whispering about? Where have you been all these years?” A hundred questions tumbled out of the blogger’s mouth as she struggled to pull out her phone to record.
Ladybug said nothing as she waited for Chat to make his appearance. She had a special place in her heart for both him and Adrien Agreste, and now that she knew that they were the same person those feelings were beginning to fuse together. Her heart was a cocktail of Eros and Philia, swirling together and overflowing like sand that her hands couldn’t hold.
But which feeling will stay? Eros, the feeling of desire? Or will it be Philia, the feeling of friendship?
This event is made for OCs - or Original Characters - created specifically for the Danny Phantom universe. People of all talents, be it art, writing, cosplay, roleplaying, etc, are welcome to enter.
If you don’t already have an OC, you are more than welcome to make one up and work on them over the course of the event! OCs made specifically for AUs can also count. If you want to use another person’s OC for any prompts besides the last one, ask for permission from the creator. You do not have to use one OC for every day - if you have more than one OC, you’re welcome to use as many as you like for as many prompts as you want!
The official tag for this event with be #DPOCWeek with no spaces.
March 13th // Daily Life
On the first day of this event, give us a little glimpse into the every-day life of your OC! It will help introduce them as well as aid in worldbuilding for your character.
March 14th // Soul Shredder
In the show, the Fright Knight’s sword Soul Shredder realizes a person’s deepest, darkest fear. What kind of nightmare would the Soul Shredder create for your OC? Delve into the things that drive them and what terrifies them most.
March 15th // Swap
This day is open-ended. Is your character good? What if they were evil? If your character is a human, what if they were a halfa or a full-ghost? Swap their role with a show character’s, or maybe swap bodies with another OC? Anything you can do to change their story, do it, and explore how it changes your character.
March 16th // Episode
For this prompt, try to imagine what an episode of Danny Phantom would be like featuring your character. If your OC is a ghost, how would they antagonize Danny, and how would it be resolved? If your character is from a different time period, how would they interact with the DanPhan crew? You can go as big or as small as you want with this.
March 17th // Age
You can either use this in the obvious sense, as in the age of your OC, or perhaps take your OC on a trip through the ages with time travel or AUs. If your character is a ghost, show us how their life was when they had a life. Show us your OC at different ages. Anything involving the prompt “age”.
March 18th // Wardrobe
Take this day to go over the clothing your OC wears - perhaps use it to dress them up or just showcase the kinds of clothes they wear. Just because the characters in the show wear the same clothing every day, it doesn’t mean your OC has to!
March 19th // Other People’s OCs
Now that you’ve had six days to work on your own OC, show some love to another person’s! They can be interacting with your own or you can just make something for an OC you admire. If you get express permission from the OC creator, maybe do your take on their OC?
As per usual, use appropriate trigger warning tags should they be relevant, and credit the people whose OCs you use.

Hey everyone, it’s HT here! 2016 was a wild year with its ups and downs and it’s finally drawing to an end. I’ve been all over the place as I’ve passed my IB diploma and took an internship and got into architecture at university, but this year’s been lots of fun despite the struggles and I’m glad I made it through, and I couldn’t have done it without your continuous support love and support. This blog’s also hit 8,000 followers and I’d like to say a huge thank you to all of you, regardless of whether you’re a distant follower or a close friend. I wish you all a very merry Christmas if you celebrate it and a happy new year! Stay warm, safe, and happy. ❦❆
Bold = friends, faves, my FAM (one does not simply escape from the box)
the pool had to be evacuated, everyone fled in panic because the tsunami was real and murasakibara just kind of remained sat in the middle of the empty pool. it was a shitty idea, and they will never try anything other than basketball ever again
i haven’t been able to produce a lot of d/c content recently because i’ve had so many projects on my plate. but once the new season starts up i can almost guarantee you will see me dive headfirst into that glorious ship
Scout u r a pure cinnamon roll 💕
i’m so honored u think so!! just a fun fact, but i describe that warm comfy feeling right when u wake up when there’s no alarms–just that happy stress-free waking up–as “being a warm cinnamon bun,” so being called this gives me that feeling
I’m lost… What is the Rob drawing challenge?
i’m getting to this a little late, but Creation Stands held something called the “Chuck Almighty” contest, where participants would be designing the new chuck shirt for their shop, and the winner receives $500! it’s over now, but rob should be judging the entries soon. i’m excited to see what was made!
Idk I’m looking forward to Rick Springfield being Luci for a bit. That way, I finally know what Lucifer’s stance on rock and roll is. I have questions that need to be answered.
i hope he’s like “this is unfitting, as i do love me some smooth jazz”
