french-rock

nathanael headcanons bc why not?
  • nathanael: there are people who throw out their copic markers instead of buying refills for them. how tragic is that?
  • he has a really hard time following in class when teachers talk too quickly or when the material is too heavy. so sometimes he’ll just sketch or do other homework in the meantime and ask ivan for notes after class is over. 
    • ivan’s happy to help out. it’s worth it for the album covers that nathanael draws for the mixtapes ivan gives to mylène. 
  • nino and nathanael used to sit in the back of the class together because they randomly bonded over this french rock band, magma, that they both love
    • there was one day where nathanael came sprinting into class with magma’s new album lifted over his head and nino literally jumped out of his chair and started screaming because “holy crap i forgot they were dropping an album can we please listen to it during lunch?”
  • adrien commissions ladybug fanart from nathanael in exchange for his physics tutoring services because mme. mendeleiev is really getting on his case about the quiz he didn’t do that well on
    • when nathanael gets a near perfect score on his latest physics test, he surprises adrien with a full-body, digitally colored print of ladybug and chat noir that adrien currently has framed in his room. 
  • alya and nathanael enter into a pact with each other where they save up small bits and pieces of their allowance at a time so that they can split the cost on new issues of their favorite comic book series
  • nathanael knew juleka and rose were dating before anyone else in class did and he’s super proud of that. the minute they announced it to the class, chloe cursed in the middle of homeroom and handed fourty euros to nathanael. 
  • marinette and nathanael are mutuals on tumblr and they’re always showing each other memes in between classes and tagging each other in posts. but they’re jerks about it because they won’t tell anyone in class what their urls are. 
  • kim challenges nathanael one day, saying that he can jog ten laps around the block quicker than nathanael can sketch him running and nathanael is totally up for that bet. 
    • it turns into a huge deal. sabrina spreads the event on facebook, alix spends all week training kim, and max oversees the event as the official judge and time keeper. 
    • when nathanael wins, kim bows to him whenever he sees him in the halls for close to two weeks.

anyone got any additions?

Delphine Lasalle writing a poem about her new girlfriend with the blonde hair, and truth telling eyes. Delphine Lasalle humming the poem like a song after Lorraine has gone, leaving only the faint scent of perfume and nicotine behind. Delphine Lasalle faking her own death & reemerging as a french rock singer five years later. Lorraine Broughton picking up the cassette and smiling as she listens to it in the sanctuary of her own safehouse. Delphine and Lorraine’s only communication being via the songs Delphine writes for & about Lorraine. Lovers who can never be together for sake of each other’s safety. Honestly it’s fine.
