like you can fight me on this but adrien agreste is definitely the kind of boyfriend who transforms into chat noir right after the date ends and makes sure his boyfriend nino lahiffe gets home safe before meeting up with ladybug and gushing to her about his awesome date with the most beautiful boy in the world
Warning: i have been adding to this headcanon for nearly a month so it is pretty long xD OOPS SORRY NOT SORRY (i did put a cut though, so, yeah) NO REGRETS
Marinette is a youtuber
Her channel consists of mostly sped up videos of her drawing designs and making her designs. Some have voice over, some have soothing and relaxing music.
Her channel blew up
Partially because, wow, she’s really talented for only being in high school
And people just really enjoyed watching her work, it’s very unique
Sometimes she’ll do simple tutorials on how to make a simple skirt, or get started on designing, but those are more rare videos
She has a second channel that is less professional than her main, where she posts a bunch of random vlogs that her and Alya take whenever they do something interesting, or even some random challenges. Most of these videos involve Alya, since she got Marinette to make a second channel for fun vlogs
Her international followers (#subtitles) find it very interesting anytime she talks about Ladybug and Chat Noir because there are legit superheroes in Paris and no other part of the world has seen that.
They vlog all sorts of things
going to the craft store for new fabrics, buttons, patterns, literally anything Marinette needs for her next project (or they’re just bored)
They record random things they see around Paris, cosplayers of LB and CN, pigeons being weird, aesthetics
Alya and Marinette have a weekly “review” which includes Alya buying something for Marinette to review- mostly themed around her favorite heroes
Sometimes just walking around the mall. Nino is spotted in many vlogs as well, but Adrien is rarely seen since he is already around so many cameras in his normal life Marinette is respecting his privacy
A lot more below the cut because I have been working on this headcanon for nearly a month!
welp a few more blogs reblogged my content with tags invalidating the very clearly marked Ninoir and Volpinat as “brOTP/platonic” or whatever and mysteeeeriously only tagged the Love Square in poly-posts, so tonight I will be leaving you all with the following:
Chat Noir is super, super bisexual. He is VERY bisexual. So very, very bisexual. HE IS THE MOST BISEXUAL THAT A MAGICAL BOY CAN BE, LIKE, THIS IS SOME LI SYAORAN NEXT-LEVEL SHIT HERE.
Alya and Nino are both super, super bisexuals too. And they are also super, super POLY! And they ALSO both have super, super big crushes on Ladybug and Chat Noir, but can’t decide if it would be too creepy-fan to try to hit on them if they get a chance.
Fortunately, they have best friends to ask for advice!
“What,” Adrien says blankly, staring at both of them.
“I think it’s only creepy if you, uh … if you push it? If they say no?” Marinette manages awkwardly. FOR WHICH SHE IS ALREADY PREPARING THE LET-THEM-DOWN-GENTLY SPEECH, DEFINITELY, OH GOD HOW IS THIS A CONCERN IN HER LIFE OH GOD THIS IS GOING TO BE SO AWKWARD PLEASE DON’T LET HER FUCK THIS UP AND MAKE ANOTHER DARK CUPID PLEASE.
“Yeah, that’s fair,” Alya agrees, squinting thoughtfully. “But we were kinda torn, though, can you guys be the tiebreaker? Who do you think we should try first, Ladybug or Chat Noir?”
“Definitely Ch–” Marinette starts quickly.
“DEFINITELY CHAT,” Adrien blurts urgently over her, gripping Nino’s shoulders in his hands and giving him a VERY IMPASSIONED LOOK. “Nino. Nino, if you don’t at least TRY to hit on Chat Noir the next time you see him, I will never ever ever forgive you ever.”
“Yeah, that’s fair,” Nino agrees. He would probably not forgive himself either, really. Alya DEFINITELY wouldn’t.
And that is the story of how a week and a half later Ladybug finds Alya and Nino and Chat all enthusiastically tangled up in a make-out sandwich on a rooftop post akuma attack with less than two minutes left on his timer CHAT FOR CRYING OUT LOUD MOVE YOUR TAIL
Marinette is pregnant. It was an accident, a late night at a club where she got drunk and went home with someone, but it’s still there. She’s pregnant. At least according to the seventeen pregnancy tests she took. Alya’s away, and Hawkmoth seems to be on vacation, so she’s not able to talk to anyone until after she’s been to the doctor to confirm it.
So she goes to patrol that night, the first patrol with Chat since she took the tests, and cries on him for a while. She’s not getting an abortion–she’s pro-choice, but can’t do it herself–and she still has to talk to the father.
But Chat’s there. He comforts her, says he’ll be there for her whether the father is or not. He lets her cry on his shoulder for hours, and patrol never actually gets done. They decide to meet up tomorrow night, even though it’s not a patrol night, so they can talk after Marinette talks to the father.
Which doesn’t go well. Actually, that’s an understatement. The father is furious at her for being pregnant, wants her to get an abortion, and wants nothing to do with the baby if she has it.
So Marinette leaves in tears, and skips her classes that afternoon and goes immediately to their patrol spot to just sit and cry for hours, waiting for Chat.
Chat left an hour early for patrol, barely having allowed himself to wait that long, and finds Ladybug already on the roof. She tells him about how it went with the father and starts crying all over again.
“I’ll be it’s father.”
“A baby needs a father. Mine was never around, and I know that’s messed me up. So I can be this baby’s father. I mean, if you want.”
“I…I’d like that.”
So they sit there for hours until Ladybug’s tears subside, holding onto each other. When they decide it’s time to leave, Ladybug suggests they reveal their identities because “I am not going to the doctor as Ladybug, and I am not having Chat Noir take me there.”
So they reveal themselves, and are freaking happy that they are Adrien and Marinette, because that makes introducing themselves to their friends much easier.
The next morning, Adrien is sleep deprived and freaking out because he spent all night on the internet looking up everything about babies and pregnancy and “should I propose, Plagg? Do you think she’ll expect me to? What do babies eat? Oh god, what if there’s more than one baby?”
(he’s also spent an insane amount of money on baby clothes and stuffed animals)
So when Nino calls to ask why he’s late for lunch, you really can’t blame him for blurting out:
“I’m not ready to be a father!”
“I’m not ready, Nino! What if I’m as terrible a father as mine? What if I kill it? What if it hates me? What if–”
“Yes! I’m not ready!”
“…who did you get pregnant?”
(you also can’t blame him for hanging up and not going to lunch after all because Marinette didn’t want to tell anyone yet and he almost blew it with the first person he talked to)
They tell their friends a few weeks later, saying that Adrien and Marinette got drunk and hooked up one night, and no they’re not together but they’re both going to be in this baby’s life.
Alya and Nino are thrilled and decide that they are going to be godparents and Alya announces it on the Ladyblog (Marinette and Adrien laugh later about how relevant a post that really was).
The pregnancy goes well. Adrien does not, in fact, propose, though he does discuss it with Marinette, who decides that maybe in the future, but only if they actually have a relationship together. They get an apartment together, and Marinette has to hide Adrien’s credit cards because he’s a stress shopper and “we really don’t need six cribs. You need to send some of them back.”
Ladybug disappears around sometime around the third month, Chat Noir fighting akumas on his own and bringing her the butterflies after for purification. Chat Noir assures the public that Ladybug is safe and sound, and that she’s only disappeared because there will be a new little bug in a few months, and, no, he will not comment on whether or not this bug is also a kitten.
(Alya freaks out because “Marinette, your baby will be the same age as Ladybugs! They’ll go to school together!”)
Adrien freaks out at every ultrasound, crying and squeezing Marinette’s hand. He buys her whatever food she’s craving, and sometimes Chat Noir will be found begging at the door of a closing shop because “Ladybug needs pickles and chocolate fudge can you please stay open just another minute?” and because these stores will usually let Chat Noir in but not Adrien.
(Chat Noir also can’t go more than half a block without people giving him baby supplies. Sometimes he has to refuse because “Ladybug would not be happy if I came home with a seventh crib.”)
(This leads to the rumours that Ladybug and Chat Noir are having sextuplets, which Marinette finds hilarious.)
(Adrien is just relieved that these rumours aren’t true because one baby is stressful enough and it hasn’t even come yet.)
It’s around five months when Chat Noir almost dies in an akuma attack. Marinette watches on TV and begs Tikki to let her transform to help, but it would be too dangerous for the baby, so all she can do is watch and cry. Chat stumbles in the window a while later, barely conscious and bleeding all over the floor. Ladybug cleanses the akuma and it heals Chat, and they both release their transformations as Marinette throws herself at him, crying.
“I almost lost you. You have to be more careful, Chat. I can’t lose you.”
Neither of them notice, at first, that she kisses him. It seems natural. He almost died. She was upset. So of course she’d kiss him.
Of course, they do notice, and both make things awkward for a few hours before they decide that maybe they should try this for real.
The baby comes a few days early, and Adrien was at a shoot on the other side of Paris when he got the call from Nino. It would take hours to get there, hours he doesn’t have because Marinette is in labour and he isn’t there and he is seriously stressing out.
So he ducks into an alley and transforms and races across the rooftops.
When he reaches the hospital, the nurses and patients in the waiting give him weird looks but he ignores them because he has to find Marinette.
He barges into Marinette’s room with a “Marinette! I’m here!” and doesn’t know why everyone turns to stare.
Mr. and Mrs. Dupain-Cheng glance between their daughter and the man who barged in, squinting and trying to put the pieces together.
The nurse who had been checking on a machine drops her clipboard.
Nino narrows his eyes and closes the book he had been trying to distract himself with, rising in a defensive stance.
Alya takes a picture.
And Marinette? Marinette bursts into hysterical laughter.
“You’re an idiot.”
“What? I got here as fast as I could. The shoot was on the other side of town. I–”
“Adrien. You’re in costume.”
He looks down at himself and groans because he knew he forgot something when he jumped off the roof. He releases the transformation and goes to the bed, deciding to pretend like it never happened and asking Marinette how she’s doing.
“That means you’re Ladybug,” Alya says, not going along with Adrien’s plan to ignore his mistake. “Right? Because Chat Noir hasn’t said that Ladybug’s baby is his, but he also hasn’t been subtle about the baby being his.”
“Can we talk about this later?” Marinette groans out as a contraction hits. “Preferably when I don’t have a baby trying to rip its way out of me.”
“Fine,” Alya agrees. “As long as I get an exclusive about Chat Noir and Ladybug’s baby.”
Hugo Michel Dupain-Cheng-Agreste came into the world a few hours later, by which point all of Paris knew Ladybug and Chat Noir’s identities (becuase Chat Noir running through a hospital screaming for Marinette Dupain-Cheng was not very subtle, and it was common knowledge that Marinette was having a baby with supermodel Adrien Agreste, so Chat Noir’s own identity wasn’t a stretch) and the section of the hospital has to be cornered off to keep out the cameras and the fans.
Gabriel Agreste comes to see them later in the day, to visit his grandson. He takes his son aside before he leaves, apologizing for being such a horrible father.
“I’ll be better to him, if you’ll let me be in his life.”
“Why wouldn’t I?”
But Gabriel doesn’t answer, instead handing a small brown box to his son.
“I am so sorry. I can’t do this anymore, not when it means hurting my family. I hope you can forgive me, and that you’ll listen to my explanation one day, but I understand if you won’t. You don’t have to worry about this anymore.”
And with that, Gabriel was gone, leaving Adrien alone and confused in the hallway of the hospital. He looked down at the box again, it was so familiar but he couldn’t figure out why. Slowly, he opened it. Inside sat a purple butterfly broach.
It’s a few months later before Ladybug and Chat Noir make an appearance again, chasing each other across the rooftops and laughing, stopping in alcoves to kiss.
The papers the next morning feature this: Ladybug with her arms around Chat’s neck, beaming as he kisses her cheek. A green sling around Chat’s body, one of his arms holding it to his chest, the other around Ladybug’s waist. And a baby, tucked in the sling, a little head with cat ears sticking out.
All of Paris turned up a year later to the long awaited wedding between Adrien Agreste and Marinette Dupain-Cheng.
Summary: Nino receives SnapCats (SnapChats) From Chat Noir.
When Nino first got a snapchat from ‘Chat Noir’. It was two in the morning.
He was curled over his computer, mixing beats when his phone buzzed. Nino, who wasn’t much for social media and didn’t really get snapchats was rather shocked.
Chat Noir had no reputation as a social media aficionado, either. Ladybug had accounts across the board, updating them appropriately with akuma updates and charity plugs, but Chat Noir had been silent. Hell, he had been adamant that he ran no social media accounts in and out of his suit.
In retrospect, Nino should’ve known that the cat boy was lying.
