Adrinette Month Day 12: Childhood Friends

Yes, I know this is really late. (you know, I do cover first kiss, reveal, and proposal in this though, soooo does that count as being ahead?) Apparently it takes me a week to finish a one-shot. But hey, I think I actually managed to write some fluff for once so I’m happy.

They were four years old when she first met him.

She watched as he tugged a pretty lady into the bakery, a smile lighting up his entire face and making his eyes shine, his hair tousled from the summer breeze. Marinette was mesmerized by that smile, by those eyes, by the golden glint of his hair. The boy looked like a drop of sunlight that had landed on Earth and was delighted by the people who lived there.

The pretty lady that must’ve been the boy’s mom struck up a conversation with her own mom, talking about needing things for something called a gala. The boy wandered from his mom’s side, gawking at the few handcrafted pastries displayed at his eye level. He stopped by a cake that had been baked and frosted to look like a cat and pressed his small hands against the glass. Marinette left her spot from behind the counter and tapped the boy on the shoulder.

Yep, exactly what I came across years ago when I was researching.

The earth gem thing I’m still unsure about, but this is some interesting possible evidence… however the only gems that are produced on earth are quartz and in limited numbers. though It’s not like anything about them is normal anyway.

I’ll keep them safe, if my theory is correct their gems will at least be stronger when they reform. I’m not sure about the healing thing though, I’ve personally never heard of gems that have an ability like that.

and I bet a gem that would have that ability would uh… charge a LOT for it. humans have no idea how expensive stuff is on homeworld. its a damn joke.

I’m going a tangent here but I feel a little calmer. I’m gonna just sleep in here.

i can’t wait for this teamup… !!! (*Φ∇Φ*) !!!, also… BLUE LAVA. i’m imagining this to be a pivotal moment at some important ancient force location where they team up for the first time under an epic night sky. I NEED IT

isn’t it amazing that jenny calendar lived seven seasons as the scooby mom & faith’s unofficial watcher

The man-animals were gods unmistakable and unescapable. As his mother, Kiche, had rendered her allegiance to them at the first cry of her name, so he was beginning to render his allegiance. He gave them the trail as a privilege indubitably theirs. When they walked, he got out of their way. When they called, he came. When they threatened, he cowered down. When they commanded him to go, he went away hurriedly. For behind any wish of theirs was power to enforce that wish, power that hurt, power that expressed itself in clouts and clubs, in flying stones and stinging lashes of whips.

He belonged to them as all dogs belonged to them. His actions were theirs to command. His body was theirs to maul, to stamp upon, to tolerate. Such was the lesson that was quickly borne in upon him. It came hard, going as it did, counter to much that was strong and dominant in his own nature; and, while he disliked it in the learning of it, unknown to himself he was learning to like it. It was a placing of his destiny in another’s hands, a shifting of the responsibilities of existence. -Jack London, White Fang

So I’m rewatching “The Empty Child” this morning, another one I’ve seen about a bazillion times, and I was struck by this moment with Rose and Jack.  

What is the first thing she says to him when he grabs her from the tractor beam?  "Hello.“  Then she says it again. Is this what Rose does when she’s in the proximity of a pretty boy?? I’VE SEEN THIS BEFORE.
