Miraculous Holders gain the ability to talk to their patron animal. Ladybugs don’t have a whole lot to say, so Marinette doesn’t really use it, but cats… Adrien spends SO MUCH TIME talking to cats, and they give him advice (not always good advice) and stuff. And then one day a teeny little calico comes to Chat Noir, shaky and hungry but says she has a human kitten at home who is scared and hurting and he needs a hero. Picture Chat Noir with a veritable army of feline spies around Paris, reporting things back to him and coming to him for help. “Chat Noir, help me find a safe place for my kittens.” “Chat Noir, my human’s mate strikes her.” “Chat Noir, my human is old and sad and alone, how can I help him?” And as Adrien or Chat Noir, he does what he can, because being a hero is about more than the big things. Picture this.
as someone with a lot of experience with abuse and predatory people, this apology is a scam
a 26 year old adult asking an 18 year old for sexual favors doesn’t “become” insidious. it’s insidious from the start because nick designed the situation that way. he’s a sexual predator, full stop, and he feels no remorse over what he’s done. he doesn’t even feel remorse about being caught
he’s been inconvenienced. nothing more, nothing less. it’s a setback for him that the work he’s put in ingratiating himself to polygon has unraveled. and now he’s doing what he can to build that base of power back up
do not take this to heart. tread lightly and please, for the love of god, stay as far away from this man as physically possible
