wes fu

Listen I love the X-Men movies and all but just a thought: maybe you wouldn’t have such a hard time trying to shove everyone’s character development and backstories into one ensemble film (and subsequently cutting important characters out of the majority of said film) if you gave someone other than fucking Wolverine a solo movie.

No Pain, No Gain” 

Based on a Miraculous musing that I shared last year (that I can’t seem to find on my main blog) about Master Fu taking Nino under his wing to become the next holder of the Turtle Miraculous and awesomely enough, I’m not the only miraculer who shares this thought. The very first time I saw Master Fu, I immediately thought of Mr. Miyagi cause you have to admit, the resemblance is definitely there and since then I’ve been itching and hoping that the series would do a Karate Kid inspired episode where Nino comes to Master Fu for help.

Like maybe there’s this new schoolyard bully with the hots for Alya who starts targeting Nino specifically due to his relationship with and somewhat own romantic interest in our foxy gal; constantly challenging him to foolish fights for Alya’s love. Being the nonchalant character he is, Nino dismisses the bully’s initial advances at harrying as he wasn’t the type of guy to want to fight anyone.  

And in similar Karate Kid type of fashion, Master Fu firstly meets Nino after he saves him from being pummelled by said bully and his comrades when they suddenly cornered him after school. Following that event, Nino is forced to fight back against said bully; seeking out Fu for help, practically begging him to teach him how to fight; a request which Fu surprisingly accepts.

This is how I imagined Fu’s first encounter with Nino to be like. And after helping him the first time, Master Fu starts to acknowledge potential in Nino—a potential which inspires him to start training him to be his successor. I imagine that at first Wayzz wouldn’t be too keen with the idea of Nino one day replacing Master Fu as his new master cause I figured that, unlike Plagg, Tikki and possibly the other kwamis, Wayzz is the one who’s been with his original holder the longest; considering that Fu is over 100 years old. While the others had had to change holders over the years, Wayzz has been with Fu since the day one and is very much loyal to him.

But ultimately I imagine once he sees Nino’s good qualities, Wayzz will begin to warm up to the young lad and actually starts to care for his well being; seeing a lot of the qualities in Nino that he did in Master Fu that made him love him as his master. Plus I think this kind of scenario could be great for Nino’s own character development as a teacher-mentor relationship with Master Fu can certainly help mould him into a stronger individual and hero. Not to mention that it’ll be really touching to see Master Fu have a sort of father-son/grandfather-grandchild/close family oriented relationship with at least one of our young heroes and I think Nino would be the perfect candidate to bring out that side of him. We don’t know if Fu used to have any kids of his own. I doubt he ever did given his duty as Miraculous holder and Ancient Guardian (and even if hid have some, he probably outgrew them since he’s practically immortal). So yeah, I’d love to see that kind of bond with Fu, Nino and Wayzz in the series, if possible.  

Do I think Master Fu will choose Nino as his successor for the Turtle Miraculous? Indeed I do.

However, do I think he’ll just hand it to him on a silver platter like he did with Adrien and Marinette? HA! Hell no! I think Master Fu will go full Mr. Miyagi on Nino and make him work for his miraculous, putting him through a rigorous training regimen to build his strength and test his worth. Plus it’ll be good for comical moments when Fu unintentionally pushes poor Nino too far and has to be scolded by Wayzz for getting too excited and overdoing things with his student. Poor Turtle Sensei just wants to see his Turtle Kouhai succeed XD

Would love to see this become canon but…for now these are all just headcanons of mine. In the meantime, a squiggle meister can dream…and draw, am I right? Alrighty I’ve rambled enough on this. As always, I hope everyone enjoys this week’s newest ML squiggle art and I hope you also enjoyed my Miraculous musing (granted you actually read all of that). Feel free to share yours over on my main blog if you have any.

Until the next squiggle piece, y’know my motto, staaaay tune for more precious star kids!  (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

Before It’s Too Late (part 7)

Summary: Bucky starts dating a girl from his History of Art class. The only problem: you’re in love with him. College AU.

Pairing: Bucky x Reader

Warnings: some tension, some fluff, some angst (?)

A/N: man oh man I’ve been waiting to write this Christmas part for 5ever. I hope you guys like it :) Also fUck this is 2,813 words. I think this is the most I’ve ever written.

After opening presents at your parents house you gather up the rest of the presents and head over to Wanda’s moms house. Everyone was already there, waiting for you and Bucky to arrive.

Knocking on the door three times, it opened up to reveal Tony. “About damn time.”

You roll your eyes. “Shut up, we weren’t that late.”

You and Bucky make your way inside with all the gifts. Upon entering the living room you spot the Christmas tree with gifts already under it. You and Bucky quickly place your gifts down before going off your separate ways, you heading over to Wanda, Peggy and Natasha while Bucky went to the guys.

“Hey,” you smile, seeing your friends in the kitchen with drinks in their hands.

“Already drinking without me?”

“Yep. We had to get a head start.” Natasha replied, walking over to you and handing you a cup.

“What is it?”

“Hot chocolate-”

You take a drink and start coughing.

“-with a surprise ingredient.”

You calm down, patting your chest while the taste of vodka lingered in your mouth. “Yeah, that was one hell of a surprise.”

“Did you and Bucky eat?” Wanda questioned.

“Yeah, my mom wouldn’t let us leave until we did.” you snort.

“I love your mom.” Peggy smiled. “She always kept me well fed.”

Wanda and Natasha agree.

“Hey Wanda,” you say. “Where’s your mom?”

“She went down to see Pietro. Apparently he didn’t want to come home for Christmas and my mom gave him a week to, and I quote, ‘stop acting stupid and get his ass down here or else’.”

You nod and laugh. Of course Wanda’s brother didn’t want to come home for the holidays.

“C’mon.” Nat says, wrapping her arm around yours. “Let’s go into the living room with the guys.”

You enter the room, seeing the men sitting on the couches with beers in their hands while talking. Wanda, Nat and Peggy go to their boyfriends and sit on their laps. You smile, feeling a sharp pain in your chest as you realize you’re the only girl there who doesn’t have anyone.

Then your mind trails off to Bucky and how you’ve had 5 years to tell him how you felt yet you never did and because of that, he’s now with Kristen who he seems to be very happy with. You wanted to take Natasha’s advice and just tell him. You wanted to get it over with, holding it in was beginning to get harder and harder every time you saw Bucky.

But you didn’t want to ruin his relationship with Kristen. This is by far the longest relationship he’s ever been in and you didn’t want to step in the way of that. Besides, what did you think he would do if you told him? Dump Kristen just to be with you? No. He’s never shown any interest in you before and yeah, sure he almost kissed you but he was just messing around like he always does. He said so himself!

But you didn’t want him to just be messing around with you. You wanted him to kiss you. To press his lips to yours in a sweet, heartfelt kiss. You wanted him to feel how you felt, to see you how you saw him. But you knew that would never happen. You were just Bucky’s friend.

Bucky looks over at you from the couch and studies your facial expression as you stared at the floor in deep thought. The brunette bit his bottom lip before grabbing the beer cap beside him and tossing it your way. It hits you on your forehead and you snap out of it, looking up to see Bucky giggling. You scowl at him, trying your best to come off as mad but you fail, seeing how cute Bucky was being.

The handsome man looks around at your mutual friends, seeing Wanda, Natasha and Peggy sitting on their boyfriends laps. He then looks back at you and pats his own lap, causing you to chuckle and shake your head. He beckons you over and you hesitantly comply. Bucky stands up and nods over to his seat.

“Sit.” he murmured.

You shake your head. “Oh no Buck, I’m fine. You were sitting there first, I can just sit on the-“

“Sit down, Y/N.” he cuts you off, placing a hand on your shoulder and pushing you gently on the couch. After getting comfortable, Bucky sits down on the floor, between your legs.

“Play with my hair. I like when you play with my hair.” he spoke before taking a swig of his beer.

You reach over with your right hand, running your fingers through his chocolate locks. “You need a haircut, your hair is getting shaggy.”

Bucky hummed. “I dunno. Girls like it. Gives them more to tug on when we fu-“

You slap the top of his head before he could finish that sentence and he laughs.

“We’re all going to Tony’s place for new years, right?” Sam questioned and everyone replied with ‘yes’.

“You better be dead or on your death bed if you don’t come, that’s all I’m saying.” Tony says.

“Will there be hot girls?” Clint asked, taking a drink from his beer bottle.

Tony scoffs. “ ‘Will there be hot girls’ – of course there’ll be hot girls! What kind of new years party will I be throwing if I didn’t invite hot girls?” he then turns to you. “Y/N there will also be hot guys at the party too, including myself. You can have your pick at any of them.”

Before you could speak though, Bucky beats you to it. “Oh no, Y/N’s fine. She doesn’t need you to set her up with anyone, Stark.”

“Y/N needs to get laid.” Natasha says.

“Yeah. This party will be good for you. We’ll help you scout out some men.” Wanda adds, throwing you a wink.

“Ooo, and maybe a relationship will come into play! Then we could all go out on a group date!” Peggy exclaimed with a smile on her face.

“Nope, not happening.” Bucky turns to look at you. “Y/N, all those men want is to hit it and quit it. They don’t want a relationship with you.”

“Oh shut it, Barnes. What are you saying? That no man wants to be in a relationship with her?” Nat scoffed.

“Nat.” you scold.

“I didn’t say that, I-“

“What, is she not good enough for the male population?”

You cross your hands over your chest. “Natasha.”

“That’s not the case here, anyone would be lucky to date Y/N.” Bucky responds.

“Cause let me tell you, anyone would be lucky to even kiss Y/N.” Nat drinks from her cup. “Believe me, I would know.”

“She’s right.” Wanda nods.

“She has very plump, soft lips.” Peggy adds and you groan, hiding behind your hands.

“I’m sure someone out there wants to be in a relationship with Y/N. We just gotta find him.” Natasha shrugged.

Bucky shook his head. “Y/N is fine how she is right now. She doesn’t need a boyfriend.”

“It would be nice to have someone.” you hum.

Bucky looks at you. “You have me, what more could you want?”

You snort. “I want someone I can kiss and do intimate things with and I can’t do that with you, Bucky. You have a girlfriend.”

“If I weren’t dating Bruce, I’d date you.” Nat says and you laugh, seeing Bruce make a face at his girlfriend.

“Yeah, thanks babe.” he muttered.

Bucky, still staring at you with a look of disbelief, scoffs. “You don’t need to rely on some guy, Y/N.”

“I never said that. All I’m saying is it would be nice to be loved.” you respond.

“I love you, everyone here loves you.” the brunette points out.

You shake your head. “I mean a different kind of love. I want-“

“What do you mean a different kind of love? There’s no-“

“Alright, let’s open up presents now!” Wanda exclaimed, standing up and walking over to the Christmas tree.

Bucky holds his stare on you for a few more seconds before facing forward just as Wanda gave out the first present.


“Aww thank you guys, this means a lot.” Vision says as looked at the gifts you and Bucky had gotten him.

“No problem, pal.” Bucky smiled.

“Alright, who’s next…” Wanda says, looking around.

“Do mine!” you exclaim, standing up and moving around Bucky who was still sitting on the floor in front of you. You drop down on the floor and look for Tony, Clint and Sam’s gifts and once you find them, you hand them over. “Open them at the same time.”

The three men exchange looks before tearing open the wrapping paper. The first one to react was Tony who busted out laughing, Sam and Clint following soon after.

“Oh my god.” Sam laughed. “I love it.”

“I’m hanging this up in our dorm, Bruce.” Tony tells his friend.

“This is going in my car.” Clint smiled.

“Well what is it?” Wanda questioned.

“It’s a picture of her.” he laughed, turning the picture frame around and showing it to everyone.

“It’s a great gift, right?” you smile.

They all nod. Next, Bucky distributed his gifts to Peggy, Wanda and Natasha. The three opened their gifts while Bucky smiled, waiting for a reaction. Natasha was first.

“Aww Buck. You got me a necklace with the first letter of my name. Thank you.” she smiled.

“Oh uh, right! I totally got you that necklace because it had your initial on it and not because it was the last necklace with a letter on it at the store.” Bucky nods and the red head glares at him.

“You just had to ruin the moment. didn’t you?”

Bucky chuckled.

Wanda and Peggy thanked him and soon enough, everyone had opened up their gifts. Peggy screamed when she opened the gift from you, Nat and Steve cried, Wanda – just like Peggy – screamed and Bruce thanked you for the shirt.

Clint laughed when he opened Bucky’s gift as did Sam upon getting the ‘manly’ shampoo and conditioner. Tony got all giddy when he received a telescope, Bruce chuckled when he got the book about planets and Steve thanked his friend for the socks.

Now all that was left was you and Bucky. You beat him to it, quickly crawling over to his gift and handing it to him. “It’s not much but…” you trail off.

He smiled at you before ripping the wrapping paper, revealing a book. But not just any book. A handmade photobook. Bucky chuckled, flipping through the pages. The pictures date back all the way to the first time you two met. There were group photos, some at the parties you attended in high school, some where you were just lounging around at your house. He flipped the page to see a picture of himself vomiting and right below it was a picture of Tony vomiting because he saw Bucky vomit.

Bucky laughed. He remembered that night. It was the last week of school senior year and you all went to some party where he got hammered. He remembered telling you he didn’t feel well and instead of helping him to the bathroom you took out your phone and started taking pictures. It was a crazy night.
After a few pages of group pictures, he flipped the page and it was the first picture the two of you ever took. He had a flower crown on that you had made him and you were smiling at the camera while he was looking at you, smiling.
The next pictures were of you two at homecoming and prom. He remembers how beautiful he thought you were when he went to your house to pick you up. Bucky looks up at you and smiles, his eyes glossing over with tears.

“Thank you, Y/N.” he pulls you to him in a hug. “This is the best gift ever. I love it so much.”

“Hey! What about my gift!” Sam exclaimed.

Bucky wipes his eyes before turning to his friend. “You got me a bottle of Fireball.”

“Yeah and that’s the best gift ever.”

“Whatever.” he rolled his eyes before standing up. “It’s my turn now. I’ll be right back, I left it in the car.”

He left and came back within seconds. Bucky kept the gift behind his back as he made his way over to you. “Get up.”

You don’t say anything and stand up. He looks at you for a few seconds before handing you a bag. “Merry Christmas, Y/N.”

You look at the bag, the word ‘Pandora’ displayed on it and your eyes widen. “James… This isn’t – no.”

He smiles. “Open it.”

You reach into the bag and pull out a box. You give Bucky one final look before opening the box, revealing a charm bracelet. “Bucky…”

He takes the charm bracelet and puts it on you. “This is why I got everyone something cheap,” he then turns to his friends. “Sorry.”

They all brush it off, watching the scene unfold in front of them.

“I used all of my money on this. The guys pitched in too.” he continued. “It was five hundred and fifteen dollars.”

You let out a sob as you stared at the bracelet dangling from your wrist. “Bucky… I – that’s so much money. You didn’t have to.”

“I wanted to.” he responds. “You’re worth more than just five hundred and fifteen dollars but that’s really all I could afford and I didn’t want the guys to have to pitch in even more money than they already had.”

“This is really beautiful. Thank you.” you cried before wrapping your arms around him.

“Anything for you.” he mumbled into your hair. The hugs lasts until you stop crying and the two of you pull away. Bucky grabs your hand and lifts it up and with his other hand, he points to a charm.

“This anchor represents stability. You keep me stable. This angel wings locket I got was because it was… a locket and if you open it,” he opens the locket. “there’s a picture of me.” he smiles at you before continuing. “This key right here represents trust. I know I can always trust you and the same goes for you. You can trust me no matter what. This is just your star sign. It’s really pretty, huh?” you nod. “This clover is for luck, this snowflake heart says ‘you keep me warm’ because you really do and last but certainly not least, this charm is the rose from Beauty and the Beast. I remember you saying you’ve always wanted a rose like the one from Beauty and the Beast so… here you go.”

After explaining all the charms, Bucky slips his hands in his pockets. “I know there’s not many charms on it but as the years pass we can add on to it.”

“This is amazing Bucky. Thank you. I love it so much.” you smile before turning to the guys who were watching the two of you. “And thank you guys for helping.”

They all smile and Clint tells you it wasn’t a big deal. You turn back to Bucky and frown. “Now I feel like my gift was pathetic. You got me this nice charm bracelet and all I got you was a lousy photobook.”

“Hey,” Bucky placed his hand on your arm. “I love that photobook. You made it yourself.”

You break out into a smile, staring into his beautiful blue eyes. You couldn’t believe he had spent so much money on you. It was insane to even think about. He didn’t have to spend all that money, you would’ve been fine with anything really. Looking down at the charm bracelet, you wanted to cry again. It was so beautiful and each charm held meaning. Bucky picked out each charm for a reason.

You look up at Bucky again. “Merry Christmas, James.”

“Merry Christmas, Y/N.” he smiled.

You hadn’t realized how close the two of you were. Both of you were so lost in the moment, staring into each others eyes, you hadn’t noticed that you two were leaning in. Bucky’s eyes would flicker down to your lips while he licked his own. Your nose touched his and he turned his head a bit. Your lips nearly touched and they would have-

If only his phone hadn’t started ringing.

Bucky closes his eyes and sighs before backing away and taking his phone out from his pocket. “It’s Kristen.”

He answers it and put the phone up to his ear. Once you hear ‘hey baby’ come out of his mouth, you inhale sharply as your eyes started to fill with tears.

You watch Bucky excuse himself to the kitchen to have more privacy and once he’s gone, you book it upstairs to the bathroom.


A/N: here you goooooo. I hope you liked this part, tell me what ya think! And as always, I’ll edit when I wake up :)

Po Ping Appreciation Post

I was in a need of making the post about one of my favorite characters of all time - Po Ping from Kung Fu Panda. We all know that he is an overweight who became our favorite badass, the Dragon Warrior. But I wanted to focus more on the things that are overlooked - or at least I feel like they are.

WARNING - this post will contain some MAJOR KFP3 spoilers!

Ok, so let’s get this party started. Po Ping…

-is an artistic soul

-made his action figures all by himself (including carving in wood and painting) the very day he fell in love with kung fu

-has a photographic memory! He saw the Furious Five only once from far away and carved their portraits in wood very accurately

-was able to learn the Wuxi Finger Hold all by himself just from pure observation and while being under the massive distress

-learns fast. Really fast, mostly from his own mistakes. He improved his fighting skills in such a short time

-cares about his art so much and is very proud of it

-is very creative! It usually shows during the fight on numerous occasions (he “drew” the giant dragon with his own chi, for example)

-probably likes to sing when he thinks no one is around (judging from the scene from the holiday special), he’s pretty good at singing

-cooks well

-has/had PTSD

-hated himself for about 20 years of his life

-is craving compliments and affection… or any kind of validation, really

-throws himself into the most dangerous situations without second thinking

-is even ready to sacrifice his own life for a bigger cause if he thinks it’s necessary

-literally jumps into committing a suicide to save his loved ones. And yes, he was pretty sure he would stay dead i will never cope with this

-is probably asexual… heck, he is very likely asexual! I mean…

So in conclusion, Po Ping is an overweight, a fanboy and a badass but he is also…

-an artist with many talents

-a victim of mental illness

-an individual who for the course of all three movies weren’t given a love interest and yet he isn’t illustrated as broken or cold - he is represented as a loving person, as someone who is capable of love, who’s able to show his affection to others

Thank you DreamWorks, for this amazing, fleshed out character.

This has been Po Appreciation Post.

A Cat, a Fox, and a Bee walk into a Bakery 11

Marinette felt that she had every right to be nervous.

The night had already started out strange.  Instead of invading her bedroom and making a sizable dent in the leftover pastries from the bakery, like usual, all three heroes had tugged her out onto her balcony. There, they had laid out a soft blanket, and had an honest-to-kwami picnic basket sitting on it.

“We thought it might be nice to eat up here for tonight,” Vixen had said, her grin having just a little bit too much of a tinge of mischief for Marinette to really trust it.

“And we thought that we’d feed you for a change,” Chat added, yelping as he got distracted in the middle of lighting candles ranged all around the safety fence of her balcony and the match burned down and singed the tips of his claws.  Grumbling, he stepped on the match to make sure it was out while shaking out his hand to cool it.

“Besides, it’s a nice night out,” Queen Bee said, her wings open and occasionally buzzing in the breeze, although not long enough or hard enough to lift off.

Marinette was waiting for the shoe to drop while not being particularly sure that it had even been let go.

And things got even weirder from there.

Look, as heroes they had all quickly dispensed with personal space bubbles with each other.  When you were fighting an akuma, you couldn’t get nervous about picking up and throwing each other at the akuma touching each other in the middle of a fight where failure meant, at best, some shiny new bruises.  Marinette had gotten used to them flopping all over each other for movie nights.

This, though, was something else.  Queenie had never reached over and scritched behind Chat or Vixen’s ears before, and Marinette had to do a double take to make sure she was seeing it right.

Not just that.  Chat nudging his nose against Vixen and Queen Bee’s necks, and Vixen draping herself completely over all of their laps, tail twitching in satisfaction.  They were all being extra touchy-feely tonight.

She glanced suspiciously at her drink.  She was fairly sure that they wouldn’t have added anything extra, but…

“So, um… We all kind of wanted to talk with you.” Vixen spoke up once the food had been demolished (put any amount of food in front of four teen superheroes who burn ungodly amounts of calories fighting akuma and it doesn’t last long).

There’s that shoe.’ Marinette thought, setting her drink down. “Go ahead.”

“All of us talked to each other, and we decided that, well…” Chat nervously rubbed the back of his head with a hand.  “We decided that we all really like each other.  In that way.  So, we decided to try dating.”

Marinette took a second to process this.  Well, that certainly explained why they were all apparently feeling extra cuddly.  She was just opening her mouth to congratulate them when Queen Bee raised a hand.

“We’re not done.” The normally prickly heroine took a bracing breath.  “We also all agreed that we like you.”

“And we wanted to ask you if you want to date us,” Vixen finished.

Marinette’s jaw dropped, and her face flushed hot.  “I, buh… Chat, what about Ladybug?” She finally got out, latching onto the first thing that popped into her head.

The feline-themed hero grimaced.  “I’m not going to lie, I’m still attracted to her… but Ladybug has made it really clear that she’s not interested in me that way.  And I’m tired of being alone, and… I’m selfish, and I want to be happy,” He admitted lowly at the end, ears splayed to the side and looking down.

Marinette felt a flash of guilt, unaware of how she had been unintentionally hurting her Kitty. Still, her mind raced, and she blurted out “How would this even work?! I mean, you couldn’t exactly drag me along on dates while suited up.”

All three shuffled, and finally Vixen spoke up.  “I, at least, was… kind of hoping that I could tell you guys who I am.  Because I know you, outside of the suit, and-“

“Wait-wait-wait.” Chat broke in.  “You know Marinette outside the suit too?”

Vixen and Chat gaped at each other, and were only distracted by Queen Bee’s head dropping into her hands.

“Queenie?”

“I know Marinette, too.” Came the muffled reply.  “How much do you want to bet that whoever gave us these things planned that?”

Vixen blinked, then covered her mouth to try and hide her sudden giggles.  “Oh gods… you mean we probably all know each other outside the masks?”

“Anyways…” Marinette raised her voice a little to try and get the conversation back on track.  “One, it’s not safe for me to know your identities. And two, I already like someone.”

Vixen gave a small snort. “How long have you liked this person without doing anything about it?”

Marinette’s jaw dropped, and everyone missed Chat’s quiet ‘Seriously, who does she have a crush on?’ in the background as the girl crossed her arms and glared indignantly at Vixen.  “I’m working on it!”

“Well…” Queen Bee smirked, and Marinette felt a flash of apprehension.  It didn’t bode well for people when Queenie was smirking.  “How about this?  Since you’re not making any progress with that crush of yours, let us try and court you until you do.”

“It’s win-win for you,” Vixen added hurriedly when it looked like Marinette was about to shoot the idea down.  “You get incentive to finally confess to your crush, and you get attention from the three most attractive heroes in Paris, bar Ladybug herself.”  The fox heroine got up on all fours and crawled over, flopping down across Marinette’s lap and doing her best impression of puppy-dog eyes. “Give us a chance to convince you.”

Marinette hesitated, glancing at the other two.  Chat was doing his own pitiful kitten face, and even Queen Bee looked more earnest than she had ever seen her.

“… Fine.  But no revealing your identities, okay?  It’s too dangerous.”

Chat and Vixen whooped as they happily tackled Marinette to the blanket, hugging her tightly.  Queen Bee turned her nose up and scoffed, only to yelp when Vixen’s tail snaked up and around her waist to yank her into the hug pile.

Marinette wasn’t sure whether she was already regretting this.

cAN we talk about how rick couldn’t even wait for michonne to take her shirt off before showering her torso in kisses. and even more than that can we fu cking talk about how she was on top for mere seconds before he flipped her back over and pulled her - with one arm - into Position™ holy fuck his triceps were poppin severely like my pussy. also bITCH did you see how he held her legs open with his while they were flipping over im nutting go look at the gifs im so shook. his back and that pants and belt hugging dat ass so beautifully like shit danai can i have your job

History Repeats Itself

When Marinette and Adrien receive their miraculous, Tikki and Plagg know exactly what they need to tell them to do. They know all about Hawk Moth’s akumas, how to stop them and catch them, they know about the Ladybug purification, and they know what happens if it isn’t performed and the akuma escapes. 

Except, the miraculous are supposed to be used for good, and Nooroo is horrified by Hawk Moth’s plans. Nooroo is not supposed to be Tikki and Plagg’s enemy. So it’s very strange that they would have such immediate and detailed knowledge of how to fight the akumas.

Unless this has happened before.

We still know very little about the backstory of the miraculous. We know Fu thought the butterfly miraculous had been lost forever, and we know Nooroo doesn’t know where the Ladybug and Chat Noir miraculous are.

In fact, it sounds like Nooroo doesn’t know about Fu either - or at least, if he did know Fu at some point, doesn’t think Fu is still around and in possession of the box of miraculous. Clearly, whatever happened the last time the miraculous were active, it separated Nooroo - and, evidently, the peacock miraculous - from the rest of them. Since Fu thought the butterfly miraculous was “lost,” not “destroyed,” it seems likely that there was some kind of fight that ended with the butterfly miraculous lost somewhere irretrievable - thrown into the ocean, someone ran off with it and never came back, etc. While there are certainly any number of ways that could have happened, a fight between miraculous holders is a distinct possibility.

So how might Nooroo have ended up in evil hands? Well, again, we have so little information, but when Wayzz presses Fu about whether he thinks Marinette and Adrien will be up to defeating Hawk Moth, he responds with this:

What single mistake could stand out so clearly to Fu, and why bring it up in that particular moment? Perhaps it was his choice of a new miraculous owner for Nooroo, a choice that ultimately ended up being the wrong choice because that person went dark.

It’s also interesting to note that, at least on screen, neither Tikki nor Plagg have ever revealed to Marinette or Adrien that Hawk Moth is another miraculous holder. Why conceal this information? Perhaps because it would raise questions about how someone evil got their hands on a miraculous - questions that could only be answered by revealing that the miraculous have a history of getting into the wrong hands, one way or another.

Right, so now that I have revealed myself to be actual Ladybug trash, time to make this one post that’s been on my mind for a while. If you don’t follow me for Miraculous Ladybug stuff (a.k.a. all my followers) then sorry about this.

So, a big fad throughout the fandom at the moment is giving Miraculouses to the supporting cast, and I am SO BEHIND THIS. It would develop the show beyond the status quo and freshen it up spectacularly across seasons, because if it keeps being a magical girl monster-of-the-week show with wacky antics ad nauseum then I’m going to probably lose interest fairly quickly. Some of the most popular miraculous assignments are Alya receiving the fox miraculous, Nino receiving the turtle miraculous ( @thelastpilot ) and alternatively Lila receiving the real, actual fox miraculous. I’m going to throw my two cents in on what thematically would work with the rest of the show.

First of all, we know three miraculous holders for definite and one for almost definite. Marinette is Ladybug, Adrien is Cat Noir, Master Fu is the unnamed turtle hero and the likelihood is Gabriel is Hawkmoth/Papillon. The thing is, if you look at miraculous holders and their miraculouses, a pattern of character starts emerging.

Let’s start with Marinette.

Marinette is, in short, a clumsy klutz with terrible luck, who normally you wouldn’t trust with giving an ounce of responsibility to – not because she wouldn’t take it seriously, but because she seems totally incompetent. The ladybug miraculous, on the other hand, is the miraculous of luck itself, with the most responsibility of all the miraculouses – and indeed, when Marinette transforms into Ladybug, almost all her clumsiness goes straight out the nearest window and she gains HUGE amounts of responsibility – she’s the one responsible for cleaning up the mess after an Akuma attack. The miraculous is not given to Marinette because she’s the best person for the job – far from it, she acknowledges in the origins episode Alya would be a far better fit. However, what’s important is that she has the capacity to grow into the role of Ladybug – and she well and truly does.

Now, let’s look at Adrien.

Adrien is a rich kid who’s incredibly lucky – he’s had everything fall into his lap from a young age, and has had competence (fencing, multilingualism etc.) drilled into him, at the cost of not being able to loosen up and socialise. His miraculous transforms him into Cat Noir, the poster boy for destruction and bad luck, with a kwami, Plagg, who’s constantly getting himself into the kind of destructive shenanigans you’d expect from Marinette through his own hedonism. See the pattern? Adrien and Marinette both receive the miraculouses that don’t represent them – they represent everything they aren’t – but everything they could be if they developed.

Now let’s look at Master Fu and Gabriel, because they’re a little different, but equally as important.

Master Fu, on the surface, seems like an ideal fit for the turtle in terms of alignment. The turtle in symbolism represents age, wisdom, protection. Master Fu stands for all these things – but Master Fu is a miraculous holder beyond his prime. He is at the end of his development. I have a feeling if we ever saw young Fu, we’d see him as a figure of youthful energy, who just wants to let loose and have fun, possibly even be anti-authoritarian when it comes to adults. This should sound true of another character in the show, and I’ll get back to that.

Gabriel, if everything is hinting at what we think it’s hinting at, however, does not fit the butterfly miraculous at all. The butterfly represents stages of life, and change, moving on, transformation. It’s heavily hinted Gabriel’s wife is dead – at the very least, Hawkmoth/Papillon has Adrien’s mother’s picture in his locket. Hawkmoth/Papillon’s goal now seems to be to attain the miraculouses so he can resurrect his dead wife. He’s not accepting death, and he’s not accepting the creed of his miraculous – he’s rejecting it, twisting it, corrupting it, thus becoming the supervillain who uses his Kwami’s powers against their will.

When a miraculous is granted to an owner, they can choose to learn from it, or reject it. But most importantly, they are granted to people who lack the qualities their miraculouses represent – their character flaws are what the miraculous works to iron out. That being said, let’s look at Lila.

Lila is a compulsive liar. Her Akumatised form is presumably the actual hero that emerges from the fox miraculous – a hero of lies and illusions. This is unhealthy for her – the miraculous isn’t helping her overcome her weaknesses, it’s only accentuating her character flaws. Lila will never grow as a person if she truly becomes Volpina.

So who actually needs secrets, lies and illusions in their life? Well, it’d be someone for whom truth is all-consumingly destructive. Someone whose self-destructive pursuit of the truth puts not only herself, but other people in the line of fire, and whose Akumatised form represents truth at all costs. I’m talking, of course, about Alya.

This is why fox!Alya appeals to me so much – because Alya would be able to learn and grow from the fox miraculous, because it represents traits that she needs to attain. Now, let’s look at the other popular miraculous assignment – turtle!Nino. That thing I mentioned earlier? Here it comes again.

Nino is the epitome of youthful vigour in the show – everything from his style to his DJing to his horribly outdated slang in the English dub (seriously, who the hell is a Totally Radical Dude in the 21st Century!? No-one. No-one is who.) His Akumatised form is Bubbler, a childish clown who tries to exile all adults. If there’s one person in the show who NEEDS the turtle miraculous and its traits of wisdom, age and protection, it’s Nino. This miraculous was MADE for Nino – right down to the outdated slang, providing an added meta bonus to the English dub that Nino becomes a massive allusion to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

This is why I love fox!Alya and turtle!Nino – because they work thematically with who has already received miraculouses. This begs the question – what happens to Lila?

I’d like to suggest something I think no-one else has thought of. I present, a digression: Peacock!Lila.

Peacocks are about vision, kind-heartedness and integrity – the peacock miraculous represents everything the fox miraculous doesn’t. If Lila became the peacock miraculous hero, she’d learn and develop SO MUCH MORE than if she became Volpina. She’d truly have the redemption and character arc that she needs – she’d learn there are more ways to solve a problem than lies, and that truth can be just as valuable. Likewise, this is why Peacock!Alya would actually be unhealthy for her – because it would only drive her even deeper into her already destructive drive for truth and justice.

This is what I call the Miraculous Character Development Theory. I dunno, it was just a thing that occurred to me.

tl;dr: fox!Alya and turtle!Nino work thematically and so does the rather outlandish peacock!Lila. Sorry this has been a mile long post about a god damn kids’ show. I have… several problems.

the blood on my hands
matches the blood on your grave
but it ain’t nearly as pure
—  I shouldn’t be alive, I shouldn’t’ve been saved | s.m.

Honestly, as weird and niche as JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is, there’s such a wide variety of locations and genres in each part, that it’s almost impossible to find something in it that doesn’t really resonate with you.

-Part 1 we got superpower kung-fu mixed with classic horror all set in Victorian England

-Part 2 we got ancient Aztec sci-fi mixed with Nazi conspiracy sci-fi with more kung-fu set in various locations (mostly Italy) around WW2

-Part 3 we got 1980′s version of Around the World in 80 days, and from here on out everybody now beats the tar out of each other with imaginary friends

-Part 4 is a slice-of-life/action/comedy/murder mystery set in one town in Japan in 1999

-Part 5 is set in 2001 in Italy and focuses on a FABULOUS squad of mafiosos trying to rise up in ranks in their gang and overthrow the kingpin

-Part 6 is a prison drama set in Florida in 2011. Features a (badass rad) female protag with some other badass rad ladies.

-Part 7 is an AU/reboot set in late 1800′s America and is about a horse race across the continental U.S.

-Part 8 continues the AU/reboot in Japan in 2011 after the Tohoku Earthquake. Mostly a mystery with action, comedy, and drama interwoven. Largely regarded as The Weirdest One (and it’s not even done yet).

All this variety and it still manages to be one cohesive story, with characters and elements from previous parts making returns and other callbacks to show that each part is connected in some way, and built upon one another.

So in TL;DR: Please read/watch JoJo. It good.

I finally finished coloring this! The lineart was completed around two weeks before Zootopia was released in theaters, and I’m afraid that’s why Nick and Judy are a bit OOC here - and why Nick is wearing shoes. Although I’m not a fan of bare feet on the dining table eitherNick,getyouracttogether.

Anywho, sure hope there are Chinese restaurants in Zootopia. 

headcanon about plagg's behavior when he saw The Book

as we all know, plagg reacted quite differently when he saw the book, as opposed to tikki who was all, “OMFG GET THE BOOK, MARINETTE”. he reacted quite typically: “duuude, i’m hungry, let’s goooo”.

but, it’s still strange. for what it’s worth, when he listed the things inside the safe, he didn’t mention the peacock brooch thing (r.i.p. my french, please correct me if i’m wrong).

imagine these though.

imagine plagg’s blood running cold when he saw The Book and The Brooch. imagine him freezing up for a split second when he saw “Tibet”. imagine him picking up the pieces together when he saw mama agreste’s picture.

imagine him asking the world what his charge, the poor boy, ever did in his previous life that adrien deserved this.

of course, adrien is close to his heart, considering that the cinnamon roll only wanted one thing in his life which was love. imagine plagg in that one or maybe two, three seconds he was in the safe alone running through all adrien’s possible reactions when he finds out that his father is the papillon. one thing was for sure–it would definitely crush adrien’s heart.

plagg cannot bear it if one of his kittens get hurt.

that’s why he tried getting him away from The Vile Book. that’s why he didn’t mention The Brooch. that’s why he acted like his old silly self.

all so that adrien wouldn’t get the wrong (BUT ACTUALLY RIGHT) assumption.
