Part 1 of the Tev/Dren hot springs episode. Y’know, the good kind of hot springs episode, where it’s fun but then also there’s some character development.
I was actually gonna have this scenario go a different direction, but…it was so boring. That’s actually why there are so many backgrounds, ‘cuz I wanted to at least challenge myself on the art if the script was boring. But I changed it (…and then kept the backgrounds anyway)! I think this is better, and it speeds us on toward The Fluff™. Win-win.
okay shhh i know it’s a crazy pairing ok but here me out its actually a rly cool idea i swear
like it’s actually a hilarious idea if you think about it with mituna’s spurts of vulgarity and lack of impulse control and roxy just batting it right back without missing a beat and he’s so confused at the same time about squishy feisty humans who bleed so easy that sometimes kicks his matesprit’s butt at video games and h O W… D A RE. idk i almost feel like it would flip flop pale and black whenever necessary.
Okay so we all know Alya is determined enough to find out Ladybug’s identity by holding her textbook hostage (seriously, where was Ladybug even keeping that thing) and also by cutting out a picture and holding it against her classmates to compare, right, yes?
What if Alya downloaded one of those face swap apps to swap her classmates’ faces onto Ladybug’s body and Adrien asks to see (he couldn’t resist) just as Alya was about to do it with Marinette, so Adrien holds up the phone to Marinette and its her face with Ladybug’s body, yeah?
And Marinette kinda smiles awkwardly but Adrien is kinda frozen for a second because it’s a perfect match - the frame, the build, the hair style and color, the eye color, oh gosh, the gentleness in her eyes, even the freckles…everything is a perfect match
And now his friends are concerned and Adrien is shaking his head and says its nothing before passing the phone back to Alya.
And he can’t get it out of his head because the clumsy, sweet girl behind him is his Lady and he had once said he would recognize her anywhere.
And he didn’t and he’s so awkward during patrols later and Ladybug is just like “whats up with you kitty?” and Chat is fumbling for an answer and he tries to recover, “oh, i didn’t know you were so concerned, Princess”
Except he has only ever called Marinette Princess and Ladybug his Lady, so Ladybug has wide eyes now and kinda chokes out, “what” and Chat is freaking out and theyre just staring at each other awkwardly on top of the roof of some building
“How did you…I mean…what?”
“I-It was a slip of the tongue, my Lady” Except he can’t lie to her. “The face swap app…the one Alya had, I mean….”
