I feel like one of the best moment I like about the Evillustrator episode is how Adrien asked Marinette on her thoughts on Chat-Noir. It was as if he really cared much about her opinion on him.
(like did he bother to ask chloe if she liked chat noir? no! cause he didn’t give a flying shit!)
I’d also like to think that the facial expression he makes is just him thinking: Okay, so she likes Chat-Noir. I just need to be hanging out with her more as him and then BABAM!! I reveal myself to her. Instant bff = she’ll be able to talk to be just like she does to Chat.
It’s freaking obvious this boy loves her
