*chapter*

She was so much closer than he’d realized, their faces inches apart, her expression wide and hesitant and vulnerable.

“My Lady,” he whispered. He was helpless in the ocean of blue that was her eyes; whatever had seemed so awful also seemed very far away. Nothing was dark or brutal or hopeless when they were this close, and he wasn’t the only one moving closer.


My vacations are oveerr so now It will take me more time to be able to post any finished pics, sadly D:. I have to paint a lot of new pieces for a college project ´v` BUT I will still have tons of doodles.

While my actual piece for State of Grace (by the awesome @dragonsinparis) is on the making (it won’t show up until at least next month thanks to all this stuff I gotta paint), get this quickie for one of the moments that broke me.
GO READ THAT THING AND SHATTER INTO TINY PIECES WITH ME. THIS FIC IS FLAWLES JUST GO i-i

Serendipitous Fate

Adrien is excited to reveal his true identity, while Marinette is terrified. But Master Fu says they can’t afford to be distant any longer. Chat Noir and Ladybug are meant to work in tandem both in and out of uniform, their strength stemming from the bond created between them. Yet, teenagers are sometimes better at dancing blind than running with wide open eyes, even with the steps laid out before them.

Steps in the path of an expanding world. Apart, they’ll flounder. But together, they might just stand a chance.

Chapter 18: Do We Get What We Deserve?

Huffing, Adrien shifted over the sheets—until he was lying on his back. You should come over here, he thought quickly. Blinking up into the darkness, he tapped his fingers on his chest and waited. It was kind of like texting, this whole thought-sharing thing, only with much more than just words.

While he laid in the darkness listening to Nino snore nearby, he put his focus on the churning that wavered just barely outside his own thoughts. Mari was keeping somewhat to herself, but was still present enough that he could tell she was deliberating. There were no shields, but she was keeping her distance.

He frowned.

I know you want to, he added. Her “consciousness” had been creeping closer and closer to his since they’d turned in for bed. Granted, he’d been reaching out to her in the same way, but that was beside the point. What was important, and making it difficult for Adrien to sleep, was that it’d been days bordering on weeks since he’d slept without Mari and having her so close yet not with him was making him anxious and fidgety.

He could sleep without her, of course, but she wasn’t keeping her thoughts to herself and neither was he, which only kept reminding him that she was just a room away and that, generally speaking, he preferred to cuddle her while he slept than not.

Is that really okay? She eventually asked.

Who cares? It’s just Nino and Alya.

That’s true…

More wavering deliberation. Adrien yawned.

Seconds later, the feeling of her consciousness retreated completely, but there was no sense of rejection, and so Adrien listened and waited. He was rewarded when he heard the soft clicking of a door beyond his room. Shortly after, his own door was quietly opened, Adrien turning over as she closed it behind and silently padded up to his bed. Lifting the sheet, he welcomed her as she slipped up beside him.

“Why, good evening, My Lady,” he whispered, both of them grinning as they snuggled closer. Until they were lying face to face, Adrien reaching up to slip his arm around her waist while she tucked herself up against him. Noses nearly touching, they giggled quietly, both unexplainably jittery.

“Hello, Kitty,” she murmured, one of her fingers twirling over his t-shirt. “I’m glad to see you’re dressed.”

“Are you? I thought we’d already established that you preferred me with my clothes off.”

“Well, preferences aside, I’d rather the shared admiration of your… exhibitionist-like attitude be limited.”

“You saying you want me all to yourself?”

“I’m saying that any more from Alya about the the state of your manhood might just put me over the edge.”

He barked a laugh. “She was talking about my ‘manhood?’”

“She was… offering to give me detailed descriptions.”

“I could send you a mental picture, if you want,” he offered, waggling his eyebrows.

She pursed her lips. “You start sending me mental-dick-pics and I’m going to leave.”

He laughed again. “I would never do you the dishonor, My Lady.”

Changes to blog:

  • ASK BOX WILL REMAIN OPEN, instead of waiting to a limit, I will allow asks to come in freely and be open, the only times it will close now will be when I (mod Bala) am away and cannot answer asks.
  • May use handmade icons as part of replying to asks rather than full drawings, but will still implement full drawings when possible or necessary.
  • Style is a little different.
  • The kiddos are BACK!

Ask Box Open

Hey guys!  An old high school friend is in town and we have plans tomorrow (later today really lmao), so I gotta head to bed.  I’m not sure what’s going on with spoilers, but I do recall Baidu posting a while back that their spoiler person would be out of the country for a while.  That’s doesn’t explain the delay in non-Baidu Netabare spoilers that usually pop up by this time of week, but all we can do is wait.  For those who are staying up or are in other time zones, please feel free to continue checking for spoilers on Netabare HERE.
