ML’s Love Letter To Horror Movie Fans

I was rewatching Horrificator and Nino’s insistence on filming through a potential tragedy reminded me of that guy from Diary of the Dead, that guy from Cloverfield, etc..  That had me paying closer attention to how much this episode pays homage to Horror/Monster movie tropes. I was cackling so much, I decided to make a post to spread the hilarity.  

A huge thanks goes to TV Tropes, where you can find the description of each stereotype.  You can also click my headers for a direct link to each.  There is an existing list of tropes from this episode that I found halfway through doing my own list.  I couldn’t find an entry for every trope so the ones that are not linked I came up with myself.  Also, I didn’t include every single trope.

Thanks go to Miraculous, les aventures de Ladybug et Chat Noir (aka, Miraculous Ladybug) for gaining even more of my respect and for giving some mad love to us horror fans.  Enjoy!

Je fais certainement de la peinture et de la sculpture et cela depuis toujours, depuis la première fois que j’ai dessiné ou peint, pour mordre sur la réalité, pour me défendre, pour me nourrir, pour grossir ; grossir pour mieux me défendre, pour mieux attaquer, pour accrocher, pour avancer le plus possible sur tous les plans, dans toutes les directions, pour me défendre contre la faim, contre le froid, contre la mort, pour être le plus libre possible : le plus libre possible pour tâcher – avec les moyens qui me sont aujourd’hui les plus propres – de mieux voir, de mieux comprendre ce qui m’entoure, de mieux comprendre pour être le plus libre possible, le plus gros possible, pour dépenser, pour me dépenser le plus possible dans ce que je fais, pour courir mon aventure, pour découvrir de nouveaux mondes, pour faire ma guerre, pour le plaisir ? pour la joie ? de la guerre, pour le plaisir de gagner et de perdre.

The Evolution of Adrien’s Game

I binged a few eps of Miraculous Ladybug while I was sick today and ended up making a long-ass observation post about Gabriel as Hawkmoth (or maybe Mr. Kubdel, wtfk) instead of resting.  Because priorities.

Anyway, here’s something else I noticed that wedged itself into my brain and won’t leave.  Prepare for another long post. 

In “Origins”:

  • Falls in love with a person he just met (proof he’s a Disney princess)
  • Which one?  Ladybug or Marinette?  Who knows.  He gives them both the same “oh shit, I think I’m in love” look.

In “Copycat (L'Imposteur):

  • Nino invites the girls to the movies and Marinette squeals.
  • Adrien’s reaction (half startled, half “that was cute wtf?”)

In “Timebreaker (Chronogirl)”:

  • He freaking winks at Marinette after complimenting her.
  • Oh yeah, you’re smooth -_-
  • Also, you’re a pirate.  ARGH MATEY!

See how this plays out below the cut:

The A-mew-sing Sequel To Adrien’s Game

This time, there are only four episodes covered but a lot of pictures so I’m adding a “read more”…eventually.  Also, Ladybug is on Netflix!  Go watch.  Here we go with the next four eps!

The last time we left our boy Adrien, he was developing his flirting technique with the lovely Marinette.  Or not.  It’s fun to speculate though, right?  Right?!

…ANYway, let’s see how he tops the almost kiss.

 In “Darkblade” (Le Chevalier Noir):

  • Marinette decides to run against Chloe for class something-or-other
  • To the utter delight of 95% of the class
  • That’s right man, just play it cool…

In “The Mime” (Le Mime):

  • Hey, I didn’t know y’all were gonna be here too lol!
  • Smooth move, dude.  Just play it off like you had NO IDEA.

Our cat son heats things up below the cut!

“you know you can come through the front door by now, right?”

“but princess, this is far more ro-meow-ntic.”

(…i just want adrien to be the hugest closet romantic ever. bad puns are romantic, right??)

Dorito chins are easy to grasp when flirting...

Tumblr seems to think that Adrien Agreste from Miraculous Ladybug is this guy:

I don’t know what




(I will admit I haven’t watched an anime in years, but @wild-mare-of-prosecution assures me that Tamaki from Ouran High School Host Club and Adrien Agreste are long-lost twins, so…)
