Headcannon that Adrien starts lowkey rebelling against his father by calling him Gabe like the little shit he is
yeah see adrien would be so subtle about it. like nino would encourage him to start rebelling a little and he just does it little controlled spurts so that his father kinda blinks….and is like…..did that happen….? it would be the best crackfic tbh
gabriel: adrien, please meet me in my office
adrien: sure thing, gabe
gabriel: adrien you cannot skip your chinese lesson to go to marinette’s birthday party.
adrien: but chinese lessons aren’t necessary
gabriel: just because it isn’t necessary doesn’t mean it isn’t valuable
adrien: so it’s like your casual indifference
adrien: not necessary, but you seem to value it.
adrien: kay, so i’m going to marinette’s birthday, i’ll text you when i get home
gabriel: i won’t be able to attend your fencing match today. something has come up.
adrien: that’s okay, i won’t be able to attend your hundredth review of my schedule today. something has come up.
gabriel: adrien, we need to talk about your behavior lately
adrien: did i do something wrong?
gabriel: i’m sensing some discontentment from you
adrien: …you’re noticing this now?
gabriel: excuse me?
adrien: oh my god is this what nino meant about obliviousness running in the family
gabriel: adrien what on earth are you – ?
adrien: is this why mom liked you so much?
