So I was daydreaming and suddenly this song came up, and I couldn’t stop thinking about how the lyrics matched to Adrien’s feelings.
The lyrics show someone who feels unloved and lonely, sorrounded by happy and lucky people. Adrien may be rich and have anything he wants -materially speaking- but deep down he’s empty since the two people he loves the most -Gabriel and Ladybug- don’t love him back.
Gabriel acts like he rose Adrien just to wear his designs and show them in front of a camera, he doesn’t care about his feelings or his life
or even his fucking birthday what kind of father are you. And Ladybug has frienzoned him (ladynoir shippers may differ, but this is what I see on chapter 18). This relationship is surely better than the one he has with Gabriel, but the sad reality is that he truly loves her and she doesn’t feel the same yeeeeet.
Nevertheless, it doesn’t end up here. He can see the relationship Nino is developing with Alya -the one he wants with Laybug-, he can see the relationship Marinette has with her parents -the one he wants with his own father- and none of them even know what he’s suffering. He’s surrounded by his friends’ happiness, unable to feel the same.
But we have to remember Adrien is also Chat Noir, the bad luck hero. He’s been cursed to be unlucky as long as he wears his miraculous. So I can imagine him, looking jealously to Ladybug’s Lucky Charm and hoping that, at some point, he will be able to be lucky too.
That he’ll be the lucky one.
