OK YOU KNOW WHAT I’M TIRED OF STRESSING OUT OVER THIS FIC. JUST. ENJOY WHAT I GOT SO FAR. YUP. (an AU born from theseposts, and the nail is that the kwami show up about a year before Adrien attends public school)
In which Chat Noir doesn’t want to love in vain and Marinette can not deal with hot a what.
It had been a while since Sophie last saw Denahi in his drunken state. She had been worried about him over the course of the period, but with the flooding that called for more prefects’ availability and classes and the work she was still doing for the hat shop, she barely had enough time to breathe. Finally, on an early weekend morning, Sophie headed to Hogsmeade for the local farmers’ market to stock up on fresh groceries. She purchased some extra for what she had planned for the day. After she paid for the last of her things, she headed towards Denahi’s house. Since she had only gone there once at night and half-carrying Denahi, she wasn’t too certain which way to go.
Luckily she found her way and reached the front door. She though it best not to go the back way and look like she was breaking in, especially since she was showing up unannounced. Giving the bell a ring, she waited patiently at the door, hoping she wouldn’t be disturbing his sleep.
Isn’t really very hard, actually. And

jealous so…third time’s the charm!

Summary: In which a new student comes into class, flirts with
Marinette, and Adrien isn’t jealous, what are you talking about?
The whole class was abuzz. They were going to have an
exchange student and he was hot. He could even
rival the looks of a certain Parisian model.
Chloe, of course, was already telling everyone that he
The other girls were curious, aside from those who
already had a beau.
Alya nudged Marinette and gave her a wink. “What if
he’ll fall in love with you? What are you going to do, Marinette?”
“Me? Pfft, Alya, please.” Marinette laughed. “That’s
not going to happen. Why would anyone fall in love with me?”
I would disagree,

eyes, and a smile on the edge of cheeky. He wore a green and blue checkered
vest over a rolled up white shirt, black pants with black shoes.
Pete had his
hands clasped behind his back as he grinned at the class, a dimple showing on
his cheek. He said, with a bit of a Scottish lilt, “Hello, I am Pete and I’m
here as an exchange student for two weeks.”

ever happened. When he passed Marinette, their eyes met and he sent her a wink.

totally did.” Alya drawled. “Looks like someone’s got a crush on you~”
the conversation could go on, Madame Bustier said, “Class, settle down. We’ll
be continuing the project that was assigned in pairs from yesterday. Since Pete
doesn’t have a partner, one of you will have to include him in your group.”

Before she could say anything, Madame Bustier said, “Very nice. Okay, Pete, you

what are we working on?” Pete asked them.

answered, “We’re researching about the theories of time-travel and other

the bookshelves, pulling out books randomly.

of this world.”

the dots between him and Chat Noir. He shrugged, “A little.”

Pete put his pencil down and leaned back on the chair. Adrien and Marinette
looked over his notes and their jaws dropped.

formulas, drawings, and everything about how time-travel could affect the world’s
time line, going as far as listing out all the references from the books.
all that under 30 minutes.
did you come up with all of this?” Marinette asked him, awe in her voice.

in the books. You just gotta know how to look.”

we need to do is put on a presentation in front of the class.”

Everything’s in there.”

And no, it’ll take more than research to make me fall for you.”

then, I’ll take you out for lunch, Princess.” Pete said as he took back the
notes and stood up. “Think of it as a thank you for the notes. If you’ll excuse
me, I’ll bring these to the teacher.”

walked slowly towards the entrance of the school, her heart beating fast. She
didn’t like this.
Pete really Chat Noir?
And if he
is…then what should she do?! She like Adrien!
then when she wasn’t out for patrols, Chat would visit her in the night. They
would talk and sometimes flirt with each other, much like how Ladybug flirted
with him. And sometimes, it would edge to something more. But Chat always made
sure to keep a polite distance.

down, but she couldn’t avoid him forever.

caught sight of her and he grinned. He turned to the girls and said, “I’m sorry
ladies, but my princess has arrived, so I’ll have to bid you all apluse.”
frowned. So Chat would flirt with anyone other than her and Ladybug. And he
said he only ever flirted with Ladybug and her. Ha!
bowed to her with a flourish and held out his arm. “Shall we?”
Marinette’s eyes darted here and there. Where was Adrien?!
who decided that Marinette was too shy to accept, took her wrist and walked
down the steps. He said, “You know, I saw this interesting restaurant just off
the street yesterday when I explored the city. People said it had the best
burgers and fries so I wanted to try it out.”
um, that’s nice.” Marinette said.
grinned at her. “Isn’t it? Paris is amazing!”
walked out for a while, when Pete said, “So Marinette, why did you think I was
somebody else when I called you Princess?”

slid down his baton and raised an eyebrow at Marinette’s expression. “Why are you shocked, Princess? Did you think he
didn’t think that!” Marinette mumbled as she looked away in embarrassment.
You wound me, princess.” Chat glanced at Pete and smirked, “Because if I did
reveal my true self to you, I think you would swoon at the sight of me.”
rolled her eyes, but inside she was relieved. She didn’t think she was ready to
know Chat Noir in real life at the moment.

Marinette. “W-wait, both of you are together?”

smiled. “Oh really? Because looks to me like the fair maiden knows yours.”

blushing, “Wait, what?! When?!”

then why would you be embarrassed? Maybe you actually dreamed of kissing him?”
Chat asked her hesitantly.
covered her face. “I-I don’t-”
them stood there, their faces steaming. Pete, on the other hand, had a smug
look on his face.
three of them jumped at the voice. Pete gulped and slowly peeked over his
shoulder. A girl with reddish-brown hair and purple clothes stood behind him, her brown eyes smoldering as she tapped her
toe on the cement. He turned his face forward swiftly.
you see me Pete.” She marched forward towards him. Pete ran behind the backs of
Chat and Marinette.
He smiled. “What are you doing here?”
the exact same question I should ask you.” The girl, who was Louise, glared at
him. “I take my eyes off you for a second, and you get yourself enrolled in a
random high school in Paris!”
come on, it was fun.” Pete protested.
and Chat exchanged looks of confusion. Louise spotted them and said, “Let me
guess, he said something weird to you two?”
them blushed. Louise saw their expressions and she narrowed her eyes. “Pete!”
just harmless fun – ouch!” Louise had grabbed him by the ear. She looked at
Marinette. “I’m sorry, but this guy is an idiot. He has a way with twisting
words and making people believe whatever he says. If he made things awkward
between you two, I’m sorry.”

frowned and looked at Marinette. Her eyes flickered to Chat Noir. “She already
has a prince charming to send her to lunch.”
what?!” Marinette and Chat Noir looked at each other.
tilted her head in puzzlement. “Aren’t you two a couple?”
What did I tell you?”
whatever happened next was a whirlwind is an understatement.
turned out that Pete Fitzgerald was not
an exchange student and that in some twisted reason he was able to enroll
himself in their school which puzzled the minds of everyone because his name
was on the register even though it wasn’t there the day before.
when Adrien pored over the notes of time-travel did he realize that the
information in the paper was far beyond the technology of today’s time.
Tap. Tap. Tap.
looked up and groaned. She did not want to see his face right now. “Go away,
to talk to you, Princess.”
her the look.
sigh, Marinette opened the window and let him in. Chat Noir shook his head, spraying
melted droplets of snow around the room. Marinette laughed, “Okay, stop! You’re
acting like a dog.”
grinned and accepted the towel she gave to him. She stood in front of him as he
rubbed his damp hair. “So what did you come to talk about, Chat?”
Noir flicked the towel around her waist and pulled her close. She squeaked in
surprise as she fell on his chest. Looking up, her breath caught in her throat
as Chat looked down at her, damp hair dripping down her face.
Princess,” Chat said huskily, “is it true? Did you really kiss me? Or even dream of kissing me?”
eyes widened and her cheeks grew hot. “I-I don’t-”
do you want to find out?” Chat blurted out.
stared at him in shock, but Chat was serious, albeit his face was as red as
her lips, she closed her eyes.
lips were cool and soft and very familiar. Marinette melted as he rubbed his
tongue on the bottom of her lip. She let him inside and a fire burning in her
stomach blazed. Their exchange was fiery and passionate as Chat tightened his
hands around her and Marinette ran her fingers through his damp hair.

skin under her jaw.
tugged her hair, exposing her slender neck. She bit her lip to stop herself
from moaning out loud as he peppered her with butterfly kisses.
softly, “You’re my Princess.”
you jealous?” Marinette asked. She looked at him and chuckled at his upset
face. She kissed him on the nose. “Don’t worry, only you can call me that.”
OMIGOSH this was not meant to be sin! I am so not sorry!
Anyway, Louise and Pete are my oc’s and they can time-travel. \(^o^)/ Because I like twisting time!
so, mini adrienette and marichat at the end. You can all see what my favorite pairings are in the love square huh.
“You lied to me,” Cat muttered as she shuffled into the kitchen. “You said you weren’t a morning person.”
“Well, I fully expected you to be a morning person lying about not being a morning person… so I did that,” Kara answered chipperly, rummaging through the fridge for something to make for breakfast. Grocery shopping was fairly high on the list of things she needed to do. Eggs. She could handle eggs.
Cat hauled herself up onto a barstool across the kitchen island, watching Kara dig around in cabinets through half closed eyes. It was too damn early to be awake on a Sunday. She already had to deal with being awake at the crack of dawn on weekdays, she hadn’t realized that dating a solar powered superhero would mean waking up as the sun rises every goddamn morning.
“Do you know what time it is?” Cat grumbled, using her arms as a pillow to rest her head on the island. Her hair fell down around her face, loose blonde curls barely skimming the counter.
