Some During/Post-Redemption thoughts with the implications of superhero shenanigans:
Chloe only uses her ‘mean girl’ voice when she encounters another mean human being.
During Lycee she once saw Rose being yelled at by a customer at her part-time flower shop job. She didn’t hesitate to step in and put that customer in their place.
She hates getting praise for doing the right thing.
One time during Lycee she found a crowd gathering around an upset Alya. After dispersing the crowd Marinette tried to thank her, but she merely responded with: “What are you talking about? I was just wanted to get the perfect angle for this instagram picture of my nails.”
Unless she’s Bee.
“Oh you’re most welcome random citizen who is most certainly not my best friend!” - Actual quote after narrowly saving Sabrina from a nasty fall.
Chloe over-compensates for her past actions.
At first she tried to buy everyone she had wronged a large expensive gift as a way of apologizing. It shocks her when Alix throws away a $200 pair of skates without batting an eyelash.
What really gets her, though, is when Rose politely refuses to accept the gift. When Chloe asks her why, she takes her aside and explains why gifts wont guarantee forgiveness.
Eventually Chloe gets better at showing everyone how sorry she is and most of them forgive her on some level.
During the last month of Lycee Chloe invites all of girls from her college homeroom for a sleepover. At first it only seems that a few people are going to show up, but eventually everyone comes around. All is not forgotten, though, as seen through some of the dares that Alix throws her way… but they’re all getting there.
And of course Chloe never lets Alix live down the only dare that she has ever turned down. It becomes legendary, but what happens at a sleepover stays at a sleepover so none of the guys ever find out. Though Kim is still perplexed as to what it was.
Halfway through Lycee she discovers who Ladybug is on accident.
It absolutely wrecks her to know that she used to terrorize Ladybug.
She won’t admit to Marinette that she knows until they’re almost out of Lycee because she fears the day when she realizes that her beloved teammate is actually her used-to-be bully.
She starts to “passively” help Marinette.
Tardy excuses, notes for missed classes that they share (and a few times mysteriously for ones they don’t), ordering extravagant orders from the shop and leaving overly generous tips…There was even one time when Marinette ‘randomly’ received an invitation to an high profile event to give her the opportunity to network.
There are a few times when she slips off her haughty act and intervenes in earnest.
At the beginning of their final year Ladybug is brought under the media’s critical eye following a battle turned sour. A non-miraculous wielding enemy showed up on Paris’ doorstep and her Miraculous cure was unable to fix the damage. No one was killed, thankfully, but many blame her.
One day, all of the guilt becomes too much for Marinette to handle and she breaks down in the middle of class without provocation. Chloe, being one of the few who know the whole story, whisks Marinette to the bathroom and stations Sabrina in the hallway to stop everyone from entering.
Once there, Chloe helps Marinette put herself back together enough to make it home. She then escorts her home and doesn’t leave her side until the next day.
Chloe never explicitly states that she knows or who she is, but it doesn’t take much for Marinette to put the pieces together.
Chloe and Sabrina remain best friends throughout it all. Though, as the years go on, their circle widens considerably.
This isn’t to say that they don’t go through some of their own rough patches… They just learn how to handle them better as the years go by.
Oddly enough Nino is the first person to enter their circle. He and Sabrina start hanging out when their “totally not a superhero” best friends go off to save the world. They, of course, don’t tell anyone that they know… but they totally know and do what they can as civilians to help their buds… and also to give their friends heart attacks.
Also Nino is low-key trying to be wingman to Sabrina, but Chloe is just a bit too dense to figure it out.
If only tumblr allowed more than 10 images. And omg, my health teacher messed up my grade instead of giving me the 25/25 I earned on an assignment, it’s a 2/25 (8%) and since the class doesn’t have many assignments it affects it a lot and I swear I asked him to fix it for a straight two weeks, emails and everything, and it’s still not changed like pls….
anyway, like, please watch boku no hero academia, and natsume yuujinchou, just because
Hey y'all i just wanted to share my full Miracuclass Zine ( @miracuclasszine ) piece cause im actually super proud of it !!
It took a lot more time than I was expecting and is generally something kinda different than what I usually do. All of which is why I havent updated Miraculous Night at all lol. (I have a couple pages almost done worry not)
All of the artwork in the Zine is centered around the character’s civilian life & their class and friends outside of their superheroing activities, and features pretty much every kid. The artwork is excellent, and is full of cute and funny moments.
Anyway regardless, yall should definitely look into getting the full zine (more info here: @miracuclasszine ) if you wanna see this & other pieces in their full high quality glory lol,,,, it’s pay what you want, but all donations go towards UNICEF & their humanitarian charity work, so it’s really a good cause.
I know everyone just LOVES to pull the whole Mari’s eyes are “SO UNBELIEVABLY BLUE! And they need to be described with the utmost detail and this needs to be a known fact for generations to come etc etc” but like can we just appreciate SABRINA’s eyes? I mean this girl’s eyes are turquoise (!!!) anyway I feel like everyone else’s features should be celebrated just as much as the Love Square’s and main four.”
MLB Secret Santa, for http://peachbunni.tumblr.com/ !! She wanted nothing sad so here are little miraculous children <3 (yes, Adrien isn’t homeschooled in this AU, let us dream) Merry Christmas, I wish the best of holidays for you and your loved ones :)
give me Marinette being really excited when she meets Chloe. give me Marinette approaching her with smiles and these really cool pastries from my parent’s bakery that you have to try out. give me Chloe staring her down, not sure if the girl in the seat next to her is a friend or foe. give me Chloe scorning her for daring to come near, and Marinette crying as she moves seats.
give me Chloe thinking she did the right thing, and that Marinette wouldn’t hurt her now. give me the class buffing Chloe for being rude to Marinette. give me everyone silently supporting Marinette.
honestly? give me Chloe realizing she might’ve screwed up, and unaware of how she can fix this mess. give me Chloe slowly slipping deeper and deeper into her facade because all her classmates are glaring at her, and no one other than Sabrina wants to be near her.
-no date hotter than one where you almost die
-these three are the best gd trio

I really like Sabrina, because I also had a ‘friend’ like Chloé once and I couldn’t say no to her at all and I did almost everything she wanted me to do. I can relate to Sabrina because I’ve been almost exactly like her. She is just too shy to stand up against Chloé and that’s why I don’t want the fandom to hate her so much. When Sabrina makes friends with Marinette (or someone like her) she might get the self confidence she needs to stand up against Chloé.”
Remember in Evillustrator when Sabrina was so thankful to Mari for standing up to Chloé? Well imagine if that happened again except this time Mari and Sabrina actually stayed friends??
Idk I just think it would be awesome if Sabrina could learn what a nicer, more balanced friendship is like from being friends with someone like Marinette. Mari would be nice to her without expecting anything in return and that would just be great for someone like Sabrina!
Also with Mari’s help in that one episode, Sabrina did stand up to Chloé for a while. So being friends with Mari for longer might help her become more sure of herself and more confident, which would be wonderful!
(Honestly it would be nice to see what kind of person Sabrina actually is other than just sucking up to Chloé all the time.)
Also from Marinette’s side, it would be awesome to have a best friend who’s so loyal and helpful, who won’t hesitate to do anything you need her to do without expecting much in return other than friendship.
Basically please just let Sabrina have friends who are actually nice to her
Everyone celebrating Ladybug’s awesomeness gives me the warm fuzzies.
First, there are Marinette’s parents who don’t even realize that’s their baby girl out there. Just that like, she did The Thing.
Then there are all the different ways that each of the classmates celebrate. They’re just over joyed and the way that they give voice to their relief is so lovely and character driven.
Rose is jumping. Sabrina is praising the powers that be. Juleka looks like she’s waving around. Nino is stretching because suddenly all that tension is gone. Mlle. Bustier and Max are fist bumping. Nathanaël looks like his knees are weak with relief and Kim is like, supermaning. Alix has also thrown her hands up but it looks like a blend of a stretch and a cheer.
Chloë literally tackles her dad out of relief and he walks around with her. You can see swat team members lose their armor because they don’t need it.
Then we have Chat Noir.
We have Chat Noir who is Stunned. He is speechless.
Unlike all the others who have no idea what sort of power they have, he KNOWS that she just took on something SO MUCH BIGGER than them and made it look easy.
He’s not going to throw his hands up because he knows how badly it could have turned out. He’s not cheering because he knows the fight is not done yet. But he is Impressed. He is Awed. He is Stunned.
This life that he has found himself in, this life of freedom and heroism isn’t one he has to tread alone. In fact, he’s running to Catch Up. To Be Enough. To push himself to further heights, because his partner? She’s a badass and he wants to go with her to the ends of the earth.
