Howl’s Moving Castle/Miraculous Ladybug AU

Ok, but consider this:

Chat/Adrien as Howl (he’s a gentleman in large crowds, but when you get to know him he’s a bit of a dork)

Marinette/Ladybug as Sophie (she literally transitions between the two all the time, and by the end she’s a beautiful conglomeration of both)

Plagg is Calcifer (he’s a snot and works closely with Howl, but does try his best.  And hey, a little recognition would be nice?)

Tikki is Markel (over eager, tries to have really good common sense, but i see Tikki as being a bit wiser.  And Markel and Sophie’s dynamic is freaking adorable)

Marinette/Ladybug/Sophie dancing with Chat/Adrien/Howl to the beautiful theme.

Think about it.

For decades, Dr. Howard Markel has taught Fitzgerald’s life and works to his students with the express purpose of using his life to demonstrate how deadly the diseases of alcoholism and addiction can be. Fitzgerald drank and smoked himself into a terminal spiral of cardiomyopathy, coronary artery disease, angina, dyspnea, and syncopal spells. 

More than once, friends suggested that Fitzgerald join Alcoholics Anonymous, which was founded in 1935. His response was both contemptuous and, ultimately, self-defeating:

I was never a joiner. AA can only help weak people because their ego is strengthened by the group. The group offers them the strength they lack on their own.

Instead, he chose to go it by himself, hoping that willpower alone would free him of his addiction - but the binges never really stopped.
