cat and guitar

i’m in my prime,
not withering and old.
but i refuse to play
your wicked games any longer.

i know this tether is unbreakable,
but you make me feel like i’m interchangeable.
you drew a target on my heart,
when did this become fatal attraction?

i don’t have the strength,
the energy,
nor the patience
to be held hostage by your love.

so baby please don’t despair
when i say that
i’ve found the courage to
let you go.

you were never meant to be tied down in the first place.

—  believing i could love you was my mistake, c.j.n.
Questionable Transformation Spots in ML

In my epic rewatch/screencap of the Miraculous series (see the Lady’s Charm and Adrien’s Game series), I’ve noticed that the kids find some…interesting spots for their “secret” transformations.  I took each screencap right before the transformation with the exception of Origins.  Why? Because it’s hilarious and I needed this laugh.  Locations like…


Out in the friggin’ open:

Who: Marinette
Episode: Origins
WTF?!: In the middle of the street, within view of Alya, the akuma (if he turned around) and anyone coming out of the Metro.  Note that Marinette hasn’t moved from her transformation spot and Alya is where she lands when released by the car.


Behind something obviously see-through:

Who: Marinette (the queen of “you can’t see me!”)
Episode: Dark Cupid, Volpina
WTF?!: It’s a good thing no one is ever walking by the park.  Or sitting on a bench. Or living in Paris.


A split second after the akuma/classmates/bodyguard go by:

Who: Marinette, Adrien
Episode: (top left to bottom right) Pharoah, Mime, Guitar Villain, Darkblade
WTF: Clenched fists = TRANSFORM AND ROLL OUT


Behind a Tree or Post:

Who: This is mostly an Adrien thing, but Mari gets one in
Episode: Gamer, Timebreaker, Pixelator, Guitar Villain
WTF: At least Marinette picked a tree that might be able to hide her if she wasn’t RIGHT across the street from the Agreste Mansion.  Let’s hope no one comes to get their car…Adrien, that first one is a twig.  Just go stand in the fountain and transform.



Directly in sight of an akuma:

Who: Marinette
Episode: Evillustrator
WTF?!:  This is the one that made me laugh the most.

Chat Noir looking up at the akuma:

This is where Marinette decides to transform.  Note the location of the bookcases, stairs, pole and poster on the bookcase.

Got it? I stared at this next one longer than any sane person should, but I determined that the area in the red circle would have been Marinette’s view right before she transformed.  Meaning…Marinette transformed behind the now-toppled bookcase, almost directly in view of the akuma.  None of the other bookcases on the right hand side (with the stairs on the left) have that poster and the destroyed bookcase would have been in the exact location of Mari’s view.  

It’s a damn good thing Evillustrator didn’t turn his head to the right…

In his defense, he could have been moving around the top area while drawing, although he stops to draw as far as I can tell…if he was on the other side when she transformed, I’m just ashamed of them both.


Honorable Mention:

Who: Adrien
Episode: X-mas

  • *AT LEAST 5 Christmas parties in full swing*
  • *LOUD SINGING from outside*
  • *Random partygoer looks out window to see what all the commotion is*:
  • Oh, hey!  There’s Chat Noir in the middle of the plaza!  He looks kinda upset…
  • *bright flash of light*
  • …..uhhhhhhhhh <–stunned into silence
  • *another random partygoer joins the first at the window* 
  • What’s the Agreste kid doing….?
  • *50 people crowd around the windows watching Adrien Agreste and his magical singing cat*

How does no one catch them?  I have a theory that they get teleported into an alternate dimension right before they transform.  It would explain the odd backgrounds…we know alternate dimensions exist because of the Pixelator episode, so…
