the canon quote from chirrut imwe “i have not walked into a wall unintentionally in twenty years” is really funny to me because there have been situations in which chirrut has intentionally walked into a wall
The Han Solo movie opens with a young Han on Tatooine. He steps into a ship and flies away. The camera pans to the middle of the desert. Somebody is walking. It’s Ewan McGregor as Obi Wan Kenobi. A bantha runs at him with a stick in its mouth, the bantha drops it at his feet. Obi Wan thanks the bantha and takes the stick. The entire movie is Obi Wan making animal/alien friends in Tatooine. Han Solo never returns. This is an Obi Wan Kenobi movie. It was an Obi Wan Kenobi movie all along.
Summary: Marinette has a phone stealing problem
and Chat confronts her about it.
Marinette stood, phone in hand, in the boys’
locker room. “I can explain!” She blurted out.
Chat Noir stared at her.
She rushed to explain. “So, I recorded a
really embarrassing voicemail right?” She gestured to the phone in her
hand. “Alya said I should get it and delete it!” She said, he gave
her an unimpressed look for selling out her friend. She switched tactics to pleading. “Look,
just… let me delete it. Please?” She looked at him imploringly. “Adrien, he’ll hate me if he hears it.
So…” Marinette drooped. “Please?”
Chat blinked in surprise. “That’s M-Adrien
She nodded, a little bit of hope welling in
her. “Yeah, he’s a friend and classmate of mine.” She looked at him
and panicked. “I swear I’m not some fangirl or anything!”
He shook his head. “I know
Marinette.” He considered her. “You shouldn’t have taken that from
Marinette looked down at the ground in shame.
“I know.” She said meekly.
“Look, Marinette, you’re a good person.
Put the phone back in his locker and I won’t say anything. You can apologize
for the voicemail later. He’ll forgive you.”
“How do you know that?” She asked quietly.
Chat frowned. “He’s got you for a friend
right? Can’t be that bad of a guy.”
Marinette frowned back at him. “Of course
he’s not a bad guy! He’s one of the most wonderful people I’ve ever met!”
She said hotly.
Chat smiled widely. “Then he won’t hate you
for such a small thing, right?”
Marinette’s anger deflated. “Right.”
She muttered and then blinked. “Right, Adrien would never hate someone for
something so small.” She smiled.
She padded over to Adrien’s locker and
hesitated for only a moment before putting the phone in and shutting it.
She turned to Chat. “So, what are you doing in here?” She looked at
Chat gained a look of panic on his face and
quickly looked at his wrist. “Oh my God! Look at the time gotta go bye
Princess see you later!” The door slammed as he quickly left.
Marinette stared after him in confusion and
Tikki came to float up next to her. “I think we need to go too,
Marinette.” Tikki pointed a paw at the door.
“Right Tikki, let’s go home.”
Marinette nodded. She’d have to think about Chat’s odd behavior once she got
Instead, she forgot all about it when they had
to deal with an akuma.
After Marinette had dealt with Copycat she had
headed home with a cloud of dread hanging over her. By now Adrien had no doubt
heard her voicemail. She knew Chat was right about him not hating her, but he
could definitely still reject her. Tikki assured her that rejection was a
rather reasonable worst case scenario.
She spent the evening with her phone in hand.
She compulsively checked her messages for any response and kept the volume on
high just in case he called.
An hour after she normally went to bed Tikki
had intervened and forced her to bed. “Just take the phone with you!”
Tikki added. An hour or two of sitting in her bed and staring at her phone caused
her Kwami to intervene again. “He’s probably already asleep and planning
to talk to you in the morning.” She plucked the phone out of Marinette’s
hands amid her tired protests. “Go. To. Sleep. Marinette.”
“Thanks for looking out for me.” She murmured
as she fell asleep.
Fun fact, Marinette was not a morning person. For
the first time this was actually a good thing as she had completely forgotten
about her problems from the day before. It wasn’t until she was running into
class, late again, that she locked eyes with Adrien and found her panic
Adrien smiled angelically at her in greeting.
She tried to smile back, but it was more of a grimace than anything else.
She sat down and resolved not to worry about
Adrien’s reaction to her voicemail. He hadn’t mentioned it so maybe he deleted
it before listening to it. She crossed her fingers and then focused on her
School went by quickly as she, for once, payed complete
attention in all of her classes. She tried her best not to think about the
voicemail and by the time class was ending she was starting to believe Adrien
really hadn’t listened to it.
You know, until he turned around in his seat
and asked if they could talk.
She told Alya she was going to stay for a
minute and the girl gave her a comforting pat on the back. She supposed Alya
was concerned because she could see the distress on her face. She told Alya it
would be fine. She knew that Adrien didn’t hate her and that would have to be
enough. Even if he did reject her.
Once everyone had left Adrien hopped over her
and Alya’s desk. He leaned against the edge of the desk and turned his head
“So amazing.” She murmured. His eyes
widened and his cheeks reddened. She blinked. “Did I say that out
loud?” She squeaked out.
He laughed softly. “Yes Marinette, and
thank you.” He grinned at her.
She shifted in her seat and turned to stare at
her desk. It was really hard to look directly at him when he laughed and
impossible when he grinned. Like looking into the sun.
“You… got my voicemail then?” She
asked. Her voice was shaking and she didn’t even know how she was managing full
He nodded and beamed at her. “I didn’t
know you felt that way about me, Marinette.”
She flushed all the way to the roots of her
hair. “I-I um.”
“I’m really flattered.” He added his
smile not dimming an inch.
Her heart slowly fell. “Your
welcome.” She said softly. He really was too kind, rejecting her in such a
He brought his hand up to the back of his neck
and scratched nervously. “So then,” He cleared his throat. “Do
you want to go to the cinema Friday night?” He gave her a hopeful smile.
She stared at him in shock. She hadn’t planned
for the best case scenario.
“Like a date?” She held her breath until he nodded. “Yes! Of
course I’d love to! When is the movie? Where do you want to meet? Do you want to
“Marinette.” He cut her off gently
and her mouth slammed shut. “How about we text about all that stuff later.
If I don’t go soon my father will have at me.” He chuckled.
Marinette nodded rapidly. “Of course.
Whatever you want, Adrien.”
After they had exchanged phone numbers and
Adrien had left Marinette found herself slowly walking home with a goofy grin
on her face. The grin didn’t fade even a bit as she did her homework and
She finally got a hold of herself when Chat
knocked lightly on the hatch to her room. She let him in and soon they were sharing
a couple of cookies she had brought up for Tikki.
“Thanks for not telling Adrien about the
phone thing.” She said gratefully. She took a bite from her cookie
Chat actually chuckled at that, a few crumbs
falling from his mouth. “Not a problem.” He smirked.
“Considering the look on your face I’m assuming Adrien wasn’t angry about
She nodded the goofy grin taking up her whole
face once more. “I can’t believe he asked me out.” The grin dropped
off her face. “Oh no! What am I going to wear?” She was about to go
into a panic when she heard Chat laugh.
She turned to him and pouted. “What’s so
He shook with laugher before smiling at her.
“I think you’re cute and I’m sure whatever you’ll wear he’ll think so too.”
She blushed. “Um, thanks?” She
couldn’t help but imitate Adrien from early by scratching at the back of her own
neck in embarrassment.
Chat smiled. “No need to thank me. Just,
can you do me one favor?” She nodded. He seemed almost nervous. “Try
your best to have fun, okay?” He implored.
She smiled. “Of course. It’s Adrien after
He flushed at her words and then smiled.
“I got to get going.” He said and grabbed one last cookie. “Good
luck with your date.” He said genuinely.
She grinned happily at him. “Thanks, I’m
going to need it.”
He shook his head. “You’ll do fine.”
He said confidently. “Thanks for the cookies!” He said as he left.
She waved goodbye and sighed.
“Right.” She looked at her desk. “I have three days to make a
sundress.” She cracked her knuckled with a smirk. “Let’s get to
Tikki sighed form her hiding space.
“Adrien won’t know what hit him.” She shook her tiny head and glanced
at the hatch Chat had just left through. “Or maybe he will.” She
Tikki looked down. “Wait. What happened to my
cookies?!” She wailed.
Marinette looked at her apologetically. “Sorry,
me and Chat ate them.”
Tikki fell face down onto the plate and moaned.
“Noooooooooooo.” She groaned.
Marinette shook her head and smiled. She’d have
to go get Tikki some more cookies soon. Chat had really enjoyed them as well.
Maybe she should try to get him to come back for some more?
Humming happily at the idea, Marinette returned
to sketching out the beginning of her dress.
