Each chapter is a stand alone one shot “Meet cute” AU and they are all just delightful! That initial moment of spark is such a huge part of what I love about stories so to have them all right at my fingertips like this is great when I want a nice pick me up! Many of the stories are Love Square but there are a few other pairings as well which I was also really excited about!
War of Attrition by AceGreyManx (don’t know tumblr url)
So this is a little one shot that I discovered… honestly I don’t know how, I think I was doing the thing where I just pick a random number between 1 and however many pages of fic there are for my fandom on AO3, go to that page and pick whichever story catches my attention on that page.
Anyways It’s very straightforward Ladynoir but we actually get to see Chat come out and step up to the plate when it comes to declaring his feelings for Ladybug and it is wonderful. You start off with this nice fluffy thing and end with a St. Crispin’s Day speech of Romantic confessions. Clocking in at less than 3k words there is no excuse not to read this one ^_~
This is probably the most self-indulgent of my fic recs and by an author who certainly doesn’t need my help being recognized. However as a musical theater nerd myself and someone who lived for both Highschool and Community theater productions when I was young I can’t NOT give a shout out to this beautiful universe. It really does a great job of capturing what the world of amature theater is like and the romance is cute and engaging, earning it a spot among my favorite fics.
Look at Me / Seeing Me by @raeryn (or @adriennagreste on tumblr as well)
Two one shots telling the same story from each person’s POV.
;I just love this story- I must have read it a dozen times- because it isn’t focused on the reveal, it is focused on how the characters deal with it. It isn’t an instant change over to a happy couple, these are two kids who are trying to figure each other out and actually build a deeper relationship/friendship with the person they like and care for and it is such a refreshing thing to see.
Fermeture by Karmahope (not sure what tumblr url)
Ugh… this story just takes my heart and squeezes it like grapes only to put it back together again. It’s a delightful sort of melancholy angst focused on the idea that you don’t realize how much something is a part of your life until it is gone. A wonderful “post victory” oneshot
Consolation Prize by @mesozoic (I think the tumblr is the same as the AO3)
Oh my goodness I laughed SO hard while reading this. Between the fantastically hysterical awkwardness and the extremely unique styling (the author starts you in the middle of a conversation and it slowly gets revealed over the course of each chapter what happened, which makes the reveal of how they GOT there just delightful) this story is just such a fun change from what I expect in fanfiction. Its also nice to see these crazy messed up teenagers being just that.
Another one that falls a little heavier on the angsty scale than I usually go for my favorites, this manages to keep my interest and handle a troupe I am usually personally not very big on- Chat and Ladybug being separated for years and Chat being bitter because of it- and make me engaged and excited for. They do a good job of skirting the line between putting the characters in a darker place without feeling like they are more OC than character (which is always my biggest concern with stories of this type) The writing itself is lovely which helps a lot, and they aren’t afraid to explore the characters flaws in a way that is very real and relatable. (Also for my NSFW fans the “missing scene” chapter (Burning in the Night) is definitely worth your time as well… hot… ::fans self::)
As long as we are talking about the friends to strangers to enemies back to friends to lovers sagas I might as well round it out with the last one on my list (the first two being Something in the Night and Sealed Away)
Gonna warn you- this fic is a BEAST. There is a lot of content and a lot going on. However the story don’t get overly bogged down even with it’s complexity, and there are some wonderfully unique ideas and questions that get addressed in this story. This also has some of my favorite utilization of some of the minor/background characters. (Ivan! OMG BLESS!!!) It’s nice to see a world where the classmates have also grown and developed alongside our core heroes.

Character: Draco Malfoy Word Count: 1091 Requested?:Yes/No Summary:After a ‘special’ detention with Umbridge, Y/n tries to hide her injured hand from her boyfriend, Draco, who is less than pleased when he finds out about it. Disclaimer: Gif isn’t mine, credit to whoever made it
+ + + + +
“I expect you to have all finished copying out the text on page 87 by now,” your Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher announced to the room, “So move on to page 88 and do the same.”
You glared at her, jaw clenched. If looks could kill she’d be as dead as doormat by now.
Umbridge had made life at Hogwarts close to unbearable. What used to be a place of laughter and fun was now overcome with unfair rules and unjust punishments.
Setting your quill down, you glanced at what you’d already written on your parchment, which was simply the date and class name. “Miss L/n,” you heard a voice above you. You sighed under your breath and craned your neck to look at her.
“Why haven’t you written a thing? Did I not make it clear that you were to copy out pages 87 and 88?” Umbridge said with an expectant expression.
“Because I own this textbook and I can simply read it whenever I want to instead of wasting time copying down useless notes,” you spat, not being able to refrain yourself from lashing out on her.
“You mean to tell me that you are refusing to complete the work I’ve set you? Because, to go against me is to go against-”
“The Minister himself, yes we know,” you rolled your eyes, not wanting to hear her talk any longer.
“Detention,” the woman in pink said in a sickly sweet voice, followed by an obnoxious giggle. You glared at her, teeth grit, knuckles clenched. You hated her, and you weren’t the only one.
In fact, the entire school loathed the woman, even her Inquisitorial Squad, who really only joined for some kind of power or authority.
The bell rang out and the class began to exit the room. “I’ll meet you back in the common room,” you told your boyfriend, Draco, as you stood up. “I’ll be there,” he replied, leaning down to kiss your lips before he’s suddenly jolted away from you.
“Boys and girls are not permitted to be within 6 inches of each other,” Umbridge stated as she put her wand away.
Draco clenched his jaw, annoyed at being pushed away from his girl, before going to leave, turning at the door to mouth, “I love you.” You shot him a smile in return, before scowling at Umbridge as she led you to her office.
As you glanced around at the decor of the room, you instantly cringed. The blush walls were lined with circular pictures of multiple cats, the curtains around the windows were patterned and pink, and the carpet was a mixture of salmons, hot pinks and deep pinks.
To put it simply, the room looked like a little girl’s bedroom, complete with flowers and lots of frills. The main desk in the room, possibly the only thing in the entire room that wasn’t pink or flouncy, was brown wood, where Umbridge sat down on a chair behind, gesturing to the seat in front of her.
You sat down, noticing a blank piece of parchment laying on the desk in front of you. “For your punishment, you will be writing lines,” the toad-faced woman said, “‘I shall not disrespect my superiors.’“
She reached to her left and picked up a black quill carefully, before pushing it towards you.
You lifted it hesitantly, then paused. “I don’t have any ink,” you said acrimoniously. She gave you an ‘innocent’ smile, “You won’t be needing ink.”
You looked at her in confusion, but received no further explanation. Rolling your eyes, you began to write the sentence she instructed.
I shall not disrespect my superiors.
I shall not disrespect my superiors.
I shall no-
Your non-writing hand began to burn, and you placed the quill down, glancing down. Your mouth opened in shock as the sentence you just wrote appeared in slices and cuts across the back of your hand.
From across the room, as she looked out of the window, all you heard was a small, girlish giggle coming from the despicable professor.
“Hey,” you greeted Draco as you walked into the common room. The platinum blonde looked up from his place on the couch and grinned at you, “Hello darling.”
You sat down beside him, careful to keep your sore hand away from him and his eyesight. “How was detention?” He asked you, placing a soft kiss on your lips.
“It was alright. Just detention isn’t it?” You played it off. As you rested your head onto Draco’s shoulder, a lock of hair fell into your face, making you lift your hand to push it out of your eyes.
“What in Salazar’s name has happened to your hand?” Draco suddenly said, sounding angry and reaching out to grab your swollen, sore hand. “Huh? Nothing!” You pulled your hand out of his view, and tried to hide it in your sleeve.
“Y/n! I’m being serious. What on earth happened to your hand?!” Draco stared at you, waiting for a reply.
After a few seconds, you sighed, before finally replying, “It was just a detention with Umbridge. No big deal.”
Draco gently took your hand in his, his mouth forming a slack ‘o’ as he ran a trembling finger across the cuts. “How dare she,” he whispered in pure anger and hatred. “How dare she do this to you?!” He spoke louder this time, his anger level raising rapidly as he stood up.
“Draco, it’s okay. I’m fine, it’s not like it’s permanent,” you tried to reassure him, but he shook his head.
“No, it’s not okay! She can’t do this to you! You know what? I’m going to get her sacked, I tell you. Nobody messes with my girl and gets away with it. As soon as my father finds out abo-” “Draco, I’m fine, I promise. If you really want to make me feel better, come cuddle me,” you said with a grin, opening your arms out.
Draco looked like he was contemplating things in his head, before finally deciding to join you again on the couch. He wrapped his arms around you and you snuggled into his chest, “I’m not happy about doing nothing, you know.” “Yes, well, she’ll eventually get what’s coming to her. For now, let’s just stay here. I like cuddling with you. You’re comfy,” you said with a small smile.
Draco let out a chuckle, rubbing his hand up and down your arm. “I love you Draco,” you mumbled. “I love you too darling,” Draco replied, kissing your head.
I’m not a piece of cake//For you to
just discard//While you walk away//With the frosting of my heart…
No matter how many times you said you would never end up
here, you always do. Here you are, his back to you, as you lie, face up, staring
at his white ceiling. Your first commitment was as friends, but somewhere along
the line, the two of you had blurred. Now you were both friends, with something
extra added in. The only rule, which came with this slippery slope was, never,
NEVER, catch feelings. If either of you was to fall for the other, it was to be
called off, along with the friendship. Would
either of you really admit such a thing? You surely didn’t.
Rey shifted the squirming cat in her arms, lifting it up to rest over her shoulder, where it seemed more content to perch up high. She opened the door to the Bey’s Beans coffee shop and looked around at the handful of early bird customers who, like her, had risen before the sun to start their day.
Rey rose early every morning to jog around the city in the comforting solitude of the pre-dawn. It was the first thing she did, before breakfast, a shower, anything. She threw her covers aside, shrugged into her hoodie and sweatpants, stepped into a pair of old sneakers, and was out.
“Be right with you!” came a voice from the back, just beyond a gaudy yellow and orange polka dot curtain. Rey noted the British accent, and the slightly harried tone.
She let the door close behind her. The cat mewled in her ear, straining toward the floor. “I, uh, think I found your cat?” she called.

Rated G Chapters: 5/? Summary: He knows. The two words reverberated in an unwelcome mantra that haunted Marinette’s every thought and action.
