i feel like some people are really hard on marinette whenever the whole “i know that boy’s schedule by heart” comment comes up and proceed to accuse marinette of being gross, creepy, obsessed, unhealthy, a stalker, and a slew of other adjectives that are just unnecessarily harsh and truly unfair to attach to marinette.
she’s a 14/15 year old girl with a crush! i have a sister who was that age very recently, and i imagine some of you are at this age right now. kids nowadays are stalking their crushes on facebook, on instagram, and on twitter. they’re keeping track of their locations on snapchat so that they know where they are. they’re going back to like photos their crushes took 5 years ago and are finding about who their ex-girlfriends are and what sports they play and what they do on the weekends. this is super normal teenage behavior, kids do this al the time, and marinette is no different.
marinette probably knows his schedule because she hears adrien talking about it. “hey sorry gotta go i have fencing right now.” “i’d really love to but i always have piano lessons on thursdays.” so yeah. she keeps track. if she needs to find him she’s probably got a good idea of where he is. sure the pulldown calendar from season 1 was a bit much, but keep in mind they did that for a comedic effect. just like marinette jumping five feet in the air because she’s surprised is comedic and over-exaggerated, her having a pull down calendar in her room is comedic and over-exaggerated. it’s a kid’s show. it’s meant to be funny and relatable.
more importantly, marinette has never used her knowledge of his schedule in order to do something harmful to him. i feel like people talk about her like her behavior is a precursor to a potentially abusive relationship which is just so blown out of proportion. she doesn’t tail him at all hours of the day. she doesn’t follow him home. she doesn’t camp out in front of his house. she doesn’t sneak pictures of him while he’s in the shower. she doesn’t try to monopolize his time. she doesn’t call his house seventeen times everyday. she doesn’t demand that he give her attention. that’s stalking. that’s being creepy. that’s something you tell the cops about. not what marinette is doing.
has she gotten jealous of other girls being interested in him? yes, and she’s quickly realized why that’s unfair behavior for her to be showing. does she need to chill out? yes, the girl will probably calm down a little once she gets to know him and the allure of him wears off in favor of actually getting to become closer friends with him. but to say that she’s all of these awful things because she’s acting like a normal teenage girl is such a double standard.
i don’t see anyone criticizing chat noir for telling strangers he’s dating ladybug or for continuously flirting with her even after she’s clearly rejected him.
Finally I made something decent with my new art program. I’ve been obsessed with FMA again and I also missed drawing Ed. So here is a veeery lazy drawing of him. I think it looks decent but it could definitely be better. Unfortunately I can barely use the new program so that’s all I could right now xD Hopefully it’s enough.
