OKAY listen up, ladies and gentlecats.

Now, those of you who have been following me for a while know I don’t tend to do fic recs. I’ll rec authors, artists, or blogs in general - but I’ve never really done individual fic recs (barring close friends). But I am going to make an exception this time and tell you all about this Miraculous Ladybug fic over on AO3 called Serendipitous Fate by DemonDogDean (aka SKayLanphear here on tumblr)

Official summary:

Adrien is excited to reveal his true identity, while Marinette is terrified. But Master Fu says they can’t afford to be distant any longer. Chat Noir and Ladybug are meant to work in tandem both in and out of uniform, their strength stemming from the bond created between them. Yet, teenagers are sometimes better at dancing blind than running with wide open eyes, even with the steps laid out before them.

Steps in the path of an expanding world. Apart, they’ll flounder. But together, they might just stand a chance.

My summary:

Beginning immediately after the conclusion of Volpina, Fu encourages Ladybug and Chat Noir to reveal themselves. Hesitant and unsure, the two of them tread carefully as they slowly learn each other for who they really are and grow as people, heroes, and partners.

….And of course shit goes down. Shit really goes down. I read the most recent chapter before class today and oh god I was on the edge of my seat. Well…okay, bed, but still. Holy hell.

This story is WONDERFULLY written - and I am a picky sonofabitch who usually closes half the tabs she opens before the third paragraph. But this has an amazing and intricate plot, spot-on characterization, KICKASS ACTION SCENES, believable dialogue, and of course, good spelling and grammar.

There’s ~*~**fluff**~*~, there’s angst, teenage drama, someone gets punched in the face, FLUFF, and kwami being kwami. I won’t say any more even though I’d really like to because SPOILERS.

so much cute dorks being cute dorks and they are so in love with each other HELP

**For anyone who’s put off by the rating, because it is an M, don’t worry. So far, there’s nothing to earn that rating other than violence because they do battle. According to the tags, ~something~ will happen eventually but, honestly, that’s not a reason to NOT read this because it is so worth it.

So, if you aren’t already on the Serendipitous Fate train, ALL ABOARD YOU NERDS!! CHOO CHOO!

Friends, witchlings, compatriots, please join us in celebrating this most auspicious occasion.

It is on this day, April the 1st, 2015, that we celebrate the birthday of Sir Havoc Toffington of Gingerdale, First of His Name, Knight of Bardoom, Battlekitten to His Royal Highness Prince Ragnar the First, and Loyal Witchcat to The Most Noble Bree Landwalker, Duchess of County Bucks.

Out of the wilds of the County James City, a small ginger kitten was come to the good people of the asylum at Pawsitively Precious. He charmed them with tricks most clever and manners most endearing, and earned a reputation as a fine young gentleman cat.

On the day of the 25th of October in the Year of Grace 2015, Havoc demonstrated his fine accomplishments in an exhibition for Ragnar the First, Prince of Bardoom, and his lady, the Duchess Bree Landwalker. So enchanted were these two good people that they took the young gentlecat into their home, and there he lives quite comfortably and well, learning the dual trades of combat and witchcraft from his benefactors.

For full six months, Sir Havoc hath proved his mettle as a Giver of Cuddles and a Slayer of Catnip Mice. His talents in the Holding-Down of Furniture (particularly Windowsills) and in the Chasing of Bouncy Objects are unparalleled, and his gingery valor and excellent speech are the chief delight of his Lord and Lady.

Therefore, we are most pleased to honor young Sir Havoc on this, his First Birthday. We expect to see many more of them and shall always hallow the day on which his pristine white boots first graced our threshold.

Three Cheers for Sir Havoc!
