Platonic love is not a runner up to romantic love. Platonic love isn’t second place. Platonic love isn’t less real, less valid or less powerful than romantic love. Don’t let your platonic love take a back seat to romantic love.
today i thought of the actual Worst miraculous ladybug fake dating au ever
so ladybug and chat noir exchange phone numbers (let’s say adrien and marinette don’t already have each other’s) and o/c ladybug says only to call her in an emergency but then chat is like “you didn’t say anything about texting so check out this meme”
anyway so it goes on and they actually end up texting constantly and grinning at their phones the entire time.
and alya notices. she notices them both doing this at the exact same time. so of course now she thinks they’re secretly dating.
she confronts marinette and of course marinette has no better explanation, and neither does adrien when alya gets nino to ask him about it
so now adrien and marinette are pretending to be secretly dating to cover up their secret identities but they also haven’t told each other that they’re pretending to be secretly dating so they’re secretly pretending to be secretly dating to cover up their secret identities.
