kc’s ml fic recs (#2)
here we go again!!! bc i’m horribly indecisive and i apparently only read fics in my free time. sorry this is long, but these are just such good fics!!!!
Well, most of his discomfort— No, amazement, however, was probably due Marinette’s six pack. The girl was fucking ripped, and he didn’t know if he was ready to deal with that.
first of all, buff mari. that’s it. jk but really this fic is the perfect cross of sexual tension and workouts and identiy reveals that it’s just the best thing ever. also poor adrien bc he is whipped.
Marinette accidentally revealed her identity to Adrien, but he hasn’t revealed his because he fears her reaction.
this fic was so painfully wonderful oh my god. first of all taylor’s a great writer, and it’s a partial-reveal fic which is not common, so it’s super interesting and a top ten of mine!!!
to my love; i think i’ll miss your eyes the most and the way they look at the world.
i almost never read first person and this is the once exception because it’s beautiful. mari and adrien go camping and hiking and whatnot but it’s like dairy entires about their relationship and the insight in marinette’s mind is just absolutley stunning. a must read for sure!!
The world places so many different expectations and pressures on our young heroes, it’s a good thing Marinette and Adrien have each other, and find many different ways of seeking comfort and reassurance (college-age fic)
poor adrien!!!! this fic is really sweet, esp in the end even tho it also gets pretty steamy. but it’s also sad bc adrien’s all worried about their relationship but mari comforts him!!! so pretty much an amazing hurt/comfort that you should really read.
If he’s going to be the face of his father’s new menswear line, Adrien Agreste is going to have to put on some muscle. Adrien sure wishes he’d had a say in this, but maybe a familiar face at the gym is just what he needs to get motivated. Unfortunately, it’s hard to stay focused when you’re caught between over-enthusiastic trainers, belligerent akuma, long standing feelings of inadequacy, and Marinette Dupain-Cheng’s biceps.
more buff mari bc apparently i don’t know how to make decisions. but this one is GOOD and it’s multi-chapter and adrien sure doesn’t know what to do with himself.

Marinette has a very distinctive hickey and it seems like the universe is out to get her.
this was one of the first ml fics i read and i was just blown away bc it’s the right mix of creative and steamy and silly and fluffy. pure perfection. also how did adrien get away with that and marinette didn’t kill him……….
Marinette has always loved flowers, and during one slow day at work she left a doodled-upon napkin on the counter of the bakery till…Much to the interest of particular patron. Follow this story as too oblivious, love-struck dumbasses try to communicate through flowers. That’s right, flowers.
OK BUT. i didn’t know i needed second hand embarrasement from mutaully pining adrienette but i DID and it’s the best decision i ever made. they’re so painfully awkward i LOVE IT. jess continutes to be amazing.
i couldn’t decide whether i should put this one or rouge so go read that one too
Adrien never really considered himself an artist per se. He only ever considered what he did a hobby, something that he did for joy and not for obligation. But Marinette held his prints up to the light, smiled up at the glossy photos he’d spent hours shooting and editing, and looked at them like they were practically perfect. And how could Adrien not let his chest swell up at the sight of her pride? Photographer!Adrien
did you know you needed photographer adrien?? lol i didn’t either but now i live for this fic. he’s the nerdiest nerd and it’s so cute and he and marinette just bond over their passions and i’m continuously crying. a+ writing, gabie.

Adrien and Marinette, ten years later.
reunited adrienette is arguably the best thing in this universe and it’s just perfectly amazing in this fic. expect lots of squealing and blushing bc that’s how cute this pile of fluff is. must read t b h.
