okay but the only marichat i can genuinely see is the kind where it’s not 2am balcony visits but just two people trying to find out what the other is like (in a non-romantic way more like who the hell is this person and what makes them them)
like marinette saying an off hand comment about chat being looked over all the time in favour of ladybug saying things along the lines of “they’re a team ladybug cant fight without chat” and adrien just being touched that his awkward school friend sticks up for chat??
like he wants to thank her but knows if he turned around and told her in class it wouldnt quite work out so well. but he’s curious as to what she’s like since she rarely gets a full sentence out around him when he tries to have a conversation
when chat knocks on the bakery door one day whilst her parents are out she’s curious about her partner. (don’t try to tell me people would talk because I present you the evillustrator ep where he just stood outside her door talking and no one saw) so she invites him in for some croissants or something.
at first its just like “a cat told me that you talked highly of me today i just wanted to extend my purrsonal thanks, princess.” and she just brushes it off like it’s no big deal but she’s also curious about what her partner is like. when hes not trying to show off for her or impress “his lady”.
at first it starts off as casual visits to the bakery timed when her parents are gone but when that proves hard they progress to afternoon/afterschool balcony visits. the visits are just two friends hanging out, laughing about any mutual interests they have (chat confessed he liked anime and mari confessed she liked cheesy tv shows and they each watch the other’s suggestion to get to know each other better).
their interactions start to ooze into their other personas. adrien casually referencing a tv show she had suggested to chat and she barely even notices. ladybug mentioning to chat that she agreed that sunsets were the best time of day, even though he had only told that to marinette as chat.
slowly things start to trickle in about each other and only then do they put the pieces together. cue suspicion of identities on both sides. their visits becoming flustering messes because “the coincidences are too similar this definitely might be their crush it might be adrien/ladybug” but also hesitant because what if theyre wrong?
it all comes out of the bag when marinette and adrien are working on a school project together (they were paired up by ms bustier) and marinette casually goes “chat can you pass me that book over there?” adrien complies, not noticing for one moment she used the wrong name.
five minutes pass before both realise what they had done. adrien is freaking because he’s like “oh no i let the cat out of the bag” punning even in the face of disaster when tikki lets him off the hook and reveals mari after she becomes too flustered with the words to say
they then are red in the face and bursting with happiness when they go to school as boyfriend/girlfriend
my job, I love my job.” Stiles keeps muttering to himself as he walks into yet another store. “I
love my boss, I love my boss.” Yesterday, he spent the entire afternoon on the internet and then tried to convince his boss that the stupid doll is not that amazing. Her
daughter will love any doll,
thing is – he does love his job. And he does love his boss. She’s
amazing and badass and the last time someone made a transphobic
remark at Pearl she had security kick the guy’s ass. Literally.
that was before she decided her daughter needed
a Dora the Explorer doll. The doll that it’s impossible to find.
Little Alma is two, she can barely talk and still finds Stiles’ face
hilarious. She doesn’t need another doll.
love my job.” He repeats to himself, scanning the shelves almost
desperately. He’s about to give up and go eat lunch because it’s
three in the afternoon and he deserves it, damnit, when he finally
spots the last doll.
the twenty-third of December and Stiles feels like he’s about to cry.
my God. No.” He
whines when some guy gets to the shelf first. “Come on,” he takes
the guy’s arm, “I’ll pay you to give me this doll.”
guy – shit, he’s hot
– turns to Stiles, blinking confusedly. “What.” His eyebrows
furrow adorably and Stiles feels his knees go weak. He stares at his
unbuttoned shirt and the crooked tie and thinks it’s just his luck. He finds the hottest man on earth on the day he’s wearing mismatched socks.

of his composure. “Like, really
guy arches his eyebrow. “So do I.”
you don’t understand.” Stiles insists. “It’s for my boss.”
guy snorts. “What kind of job do you have?”
my God, no.” Stiles
wants to hit himself. “It’s for my boss’ daughter.”
When the guy keeps smiling, Stiles rolls his eyes. “Stop laughing,
maybe you should look at the store next door.”
did!” When the guy opens his mouth, Stiles shakes his head. “I
looked everywhere! Look, I’ll pay you, okay? How much, two hundred?”
He takes his wallet, starts counting the money.
guy blinks. “The doll is fifty bucks.”
Stiles waves. “Desperate.”
blinks again and then he snorts. “Here.” He hands Stiles the doll
and turns around. “It’s yours.”
–” it’s Stiles’ turn to blink, looking between the guy and the
money in his hand, “the money…”
fine.” He shrugs. “I’m feeling Christmas-y.”
Stiles will blame his empty stomach but right then, the only thing he
can think about doing is taking the guy’s face in his hands and
kissing him. Hot-guy is clearly taken back and Stiles was expecting
to be pushed away when the hand on his hip pulls him closer. He opens
his mouth, lets the guy’s tongue join his.
are both breathless when Stiles pulls back, several seconds later,
and hot-guy licks his lips, looking like he’s already thinking about
kissing Stiles again. “Thank you.” Stiles whispers. The guy only
nods and Stiles feels a certain pride for being able to do that to
someone. His phone rings in his pocket and Stiles jumps away,
remembering why he was at the store in the first place.
Scott.” He answers the phone. “Yeah, I’ll meet you for lunch.”
He turns to look at the guy again, but he’s already gone. A
dream? Stiles thinks, smiling to
himself. It certainly felt like it.
never been to his boss’ house before, but she invited him to the
Christmas party and there’s no way Stiles could’ve said no to her,
especially when she was holding Alma and the little girl was giving
him her brightest goofy grin. “Look at this baby, Stiles. Are
you really going to say no to her?” She had said, bouncing the
little girl on her knee. Stiles didn’t.
entirely family is there, by the looks of it. He can hear kids
screaming and laughing and when he rings the door bell, he’s greeted
by an older woman who immediately pulls him into a hug. “Merry
Christmas!” She says, smiling.
Christmas.” Stiles says back, hands her a bottle of wine while he
holds the box with the doll with the other hand. “I didn’t know
what to bring, so –” he trails off.
laughs. “Thank you.” She ushers him in just as two kids run past
them. “They are all in the living room, go greet the rest of the
family.” Stiles nods, thanking her too.
looking for Alma or maybe someone else he might know when he spots
his boss in the corner. She’s berating some guy and her husband is laughing quietly next to her.
can’t believe you.” She’s saying. “You let another guy have the
doll just because he was cute? Derek.”
She brings her hands to her hips and gives him the patented Laura
Hale Disappointed Look. “Alma is your niece.”
just because.” Derek
answers and Stiles immediately stops. He knows that voice. He kissed
the owner of that voice. “He looked desperate.”
Stiles finds himself saying before he can stop himself. They turn to
look at him and Derek’s eyes widen immediately. “You ran!” He
points at him, making Derek blink confusedly. That’s still cute,
shit, Stiles wants to kiss him again.
