my favorite coping mechanism of all is opening up to my friends and then immediately acting like i never did and it never happened because i am deeply afraid of opening up to others and being vulnerable
i was telling my coworker about how i’m going to florida and she was like “ugh they have lizards everywhere! gross!” and i had to act like i hated lizards for a solid 5 minutes and it was the most challenging 5 minutes of my life
Not everyday is a good day. Adrien knows that. He also knows that his purring is useful to calm people (especially children during an akuma attack. Kids like the sound of it and that way he can do his job quickly).
So when Marinette has a bad day
he tries to do the same she does when he feels down: be there for her. And he use his purr to calm her a little. This purr is lower and longer than the ones he uses for kids, since he is not in a hurry and wants to express better what he feels.
Also forehead touches are a Marichat thingy, fite me.
(And I thought I’d wrap it up in three months… Whoops)! Thank you for your constant support, patience, and kudos (all 12,700 of them?)!! This project has really gotten me through some tough anxiety (and lupus, apparently) whilst introducing me to the wonderful, talented, empathetic, and creative sterek fandom. I’m honored to be friends with so many of you *hugs*
The final chapter is still in progress, as is book!Home! I’m eager to share both with you soon. ♥
