Sprite- John has the most expressive sprite, for sure, so while the base isn’t amazing, the occasional change in mood can lead to some really cute expressions. 5/10
Zoom- the early attempts at varying from sprite were not amazing, with too thick lines and an even goofier appearance. 2/10
Replacement- The more common sprite replacement looks great. 8/10
Human- Not my favorite, but the change in style worked for the drama of the situation, and the lack of expression can be chalked down to the fact that this is consistently what John’s face looks like when people close to him die. 4/10
Teeth- This John retains his cute teeth, even without his mouth wide open. They look really good. 8/10
Details- It’s a genuinely well drawn John, but I think the more cartoony/simplistic Johns work a little better for scenes that aren’t close-ups. 5/10
:D - Admittedly, he’s quite cute. 7/10
Protag- this John looks like he is there for you. He has your back. The shapes in this drawing are really good, and the soft shading looks nice. 9/10
Snaps- This john is really cute. His glasses look nice as grey rectangles, his teeth are kept, and he looks friendly, as he should. 10/10
Lord have mercy I love your writing! Your kiss prompts are so well done that on a scale of one to even, I simply can't. Of course, leading up to that. I really want the K. :D
*takes advantage of the fact that ‘apprends moi’ (teach me) and ‘ah, prends moi’ (ah, take me) are a simple hitch of breath apart :3c*
(am i doing year-old prompts? yes i am absolutely doing year-old prompts)
S'il vous plaît = please (polite) apprends moi = teach me prends moi = take me beau gosse = approximately ‘good-looking kid’ or ‘stud’ (what marinette calls adrien instead of ‘hot stuff’ in the french dub)
dedicated to @isadorator for her help with betaing my remix, THANK YOU AGAIN ♥♥♥
and THANK YOU @mirthaculous FOR MAKING THIS MAKE SENSE YOU ARE A GODSEND ;A;
18: Underwater Kiss
Ladybug took stock of the situation:
The three of them (her, Chat, and the akuma) had been thrown into a town square of sorts: an open space that was now surrounded by walls of water on all sides. Geyser had taken a break from blasting powerful waterspouts at them to pose and laugh maniacally, but still wasn’t wearing any obvious accessories or objects that she could see.
The city at large (or what she could see of it, at least) had been turned into an elaborate deathtrap of a water-park-slash-fountain-showcase. Their attempt to curb the flooding by Cataclysming the public fountain that Geyser had designed had backfired, simply allowing more water to burst forth from beneath Paris’ paved streets. And Chat…
Chat was casting nervous, wincing glances at the last flickering light of his Miraculous.
Clara: Uh, look I can see where this is going. Charlie are we going to? Charlie: Not tonight. I have plans. Clara: Nia let me walk home with you! It’s dark out! - Nia sighed. Nia: Fine. Wait in the living room, this won’t be long. Clara: I’m not your fucking- I’m not Hana. Don’t boss me around…but uh, I’ll be in the living room when you’re ready. - She walked out.
Charlie: Seriously, won’t take my tone? Watch your ownNia. Nia: I apologize for that night Charlie. I don’t understand why you hate me on this level. Charlie: Really? Really?! Maybe because Hana’s my best fucking friend! She’s my fucking family. And you, you don’t treat her like she’s meant to be treated! Nia: How I treat her is our business, if she wasn’t happy with me then she’d say so, or leave. - Charlie huffed. Charlie: You don’t get it. You’re a fucking idiot, and I’m never going to like you.
