“His fingers touched the strings, and all my thoughts were displaced. The sound was pure and sweet as water, bright as lemons. It was like no music I had ever heard before. It had warmth as a fire does, a texture and weight like polished ivory. It buoyed and soothed at once.”

- Madeline Miller, The Song of Achilles, page 34

there’s this girl

Title: there’s this girl
Fandom: miraculous ladybug
Rating: K+
Characters: Ladybug (Marinette), Queen Bee (Chloe)
Summary: Queen Bee has a secret. It’s not what Ladybug thinks.

“So there’s this girl.”

Ladybug cocked her head and stared at her friend with wide eyes, mouth falling open to say something, but the look on Queen Bee’s face stopped her in her tracks. Bottom lip caught between her teeth, gaze heavy on her hands clasped tightly in her lips, she looked hesitant and unsure, lacking the confidence and charisma that usually oozed from every pore. Ladybug didn’t know how to respond. It wasn’t every day that Queen Bee chose to open up to her or any of the other heroes of Paris; she held her secrets and identity tighter than any of them did.

“For my father,” she’d say when asked why and rarely said more. Ladybug wasn’t arguing—she did the same thing—but it was different to have someone so similar working beside her. While she enjoyed Volpina’s presence, and Chat Noir was her partner, Queen Bee was something entirely new and unexpected, but not unwanted. Ladybug had spent so long explaining why secret identities were important, and while everyone had accepted that long ago, Queen Bee was the only person who seemed to understood why.

“So there’s this girl,” Queen Bee had said, completely out-of-the-blue and sending Ladybug’s thoughts into a whirlwind, unprompted on an early Saturday after an akuma battle under the silver sunrise of the Paris morning. “And I don’t know what to do.”

'Twas A Night Like Ethel Merman (Improvisation) / Beyond The Sea / Blue Moon / Young Love
John Lennon

1978? (Dakota, New York): John associates freely. 

JOHN: ’Twas a night like Ethel Merman, not a sailor in the sky / A kind of aged gentleman was giving me a try / I remember it distinctly, as clear as yesterday / I was excavating mucus and I thought I heard him say / ‘O timorous beastly, what o’er the briney sea / The news oot the bracken [inaudible] / It’s a long way to tipperillo, och aye’ / Mine eye was clouded o’er as I heard his mournful song / I asked him what the time was, he said it wasn’t long.

Do you remember when we were in the café on the left bank? / You could not find your cartier / Because it was around your little throat / You naughty little chéri / Thank heaven for little pearls / My God it’s so high up there / You know you can’t really do that to yourself / You’d get yourself disease! / La la la…

Blue moon / You left me standing alone / Without a dog or a bone / Without a… reasonable chance of recovery.

They say for every boy and girl / There’s just one love in this whole world / But I, I found mine / Boy oh boy I found mine / Oh this is thrilling / Just one kiss from your sweet lips tells me no one can ever split your / P’s or Q’s or African…
