“The Sun and Moon did fall in love but no one said it was a happy story.”
Let’s talk my Sun/Moon Spirit AU ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
tumblr fucked up my image quality okay lets get that out of the way if you want better quality, click on the images.
Both Mari and Adrien are half-spirits, actually being part human.
On days they feel like it and are physically allowed, they transform into their ‘human’ versions.
Granted, their spirit versions look human but on Earth, they can be disguised as normal people.
As spirits, neither age and have seen centuries upon centuries of different decades. Though because of this, they can have fun adjusting to different eras and are fascinated with these ‘modern touchable squares’.
Each night before the dawn, Mari has to set out morning stars which Adrien can see when he awakes, a big reason why he fell in love with her.
Mari, however, has seen Adrien, but only in his human version, and not knowing who he is, falls in love with this human.
They only see eachother, of course, via eclipse.
When the eclipses occur, they don’t have a lot of time so every time it does;
“Moon Spirit, how lovely you look today! May I take your hand in marriage now?”
Mari always just laughs and politely declines but in the back of his head, he knows he does want her hand in marriage. They part ways, say the usual goodbye and “keep the morning stars coming’.
Then Adrien waits for the next eclipse. He always does.
More on this au and character designs to come and possibly a gifcomic when I get back to Australia but yeah, this one is semi-angsty and i’m r e a d y.
Adrien wears a lot of clothes due to him being the sun spirit, he is constantly exposed to the heat.
And onto that, another reason he wears a lot of clothes aka the giant robe is because he has a lot of scars and all sorts from battles, the heat and just general angsty shit (more to come on this next time)
I’ll give you this though; because Mari has rejected him for…decades, sometimes he gets lonely which is why out of the two, he is more likely to go to his human version so he can to interact with people.
But, their human forms have restrictions.
To transform into their human versions, they have to take off their respective earrings.
They have a limited amount of time in their human versions, as the time passes, their tattoos begin to fade and they cannot, at all costs, have their tattoos fully faded and gone.
If the tattoos fully fade, they become mortals, and as much as Adrien does want to become a mortal, the balance of basically everything in the universe goes to the shits and basically we might die.
Due to his excessive use of his human version, he is often scolded by gods. Adrien has never gotten his tattoo fully faded but he’s had some very close calls.
Mari has every constellation on her back as tattoos and as time passes for her in her human form, the constellations disappear one by one.
Both Adrien and Mari are saddened about their losing connection to humans. They were once actively interactive with the people way back then but during the heavy times of industrialisation and of course, environmental issues, sometimes it’s hard for both to reach out. And this has definitely affected both physically…
Mari fell in love with Human Adrien in the time of the French Revolution when he fought as a soldier.
In their spirit forms, only animals and chosen humans can sense Adrien and Mari.
Birds love Adrien and can sense him more strongly than any other animals and tend to follow him around in his spirit form.
Spirit Adrien has seen Human Mari….more to come on this later.
I’m not going to reveal all of this yet but here’s the thing; the spirits don’t just watch over the people for decades without doing anything…
And Mari and Adrien are definitely not the only spirits around.
That’s it for now but yeah….def some more soon ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
