    Summary

    He was halfway through with the assigned activities when he first heard it. He thought he was imagining things, if his sleep deprivation had genuinely made him go mad. But no, there it was again. It was the call of his name, but not the name that Marinette would normally say.

    “Chat,” Marinette muttered again.

    crack lol XD this gives me kaguya-sama vibes and I love it

    cracky identity reveal shenanigan's through sleep talking. I just love adrien mkay.

    ----------
    I relate to this scene lmao

    "Is that... coffee?" Adrien turned around in his seat, looking at Marinette, no looking at her coffee, with stars in his eyes.

    "Back off, Agreste, this coffee is mine." Marinette glared at him.

    "Please, Marinette?" He looked up at her, eyes pleading. Her heart begged for her to give him the coffee. She could always get more, and Adrien was so cute looking like that!

    "No." She deadpanned, taking another drink. Sleep deprivation: 1, Crush: 0

    ---------

     

     

    Psychology way of thinking I relate, overthinking

    Marinette narrowed her eyes. She didn't trust him, but it did sound like a pretty good deal to her. The only problem is if Adrien would keep his word. Oh, what is she talking about? Adrien would totally keep his word! Unless he thought not keeping it was the better option...

    'Ugh, too much thinking, I'm too tired.' 

    Marinette placed her head on the desk to think, not to sleep, to think. The difference is very important.

    Hmm, if she took a nap, then she would get to sleep. And if Adrien woke her up, she would still get to talk to him! But what about getting an A+ on the project? And the movie? And Emma, Louis, and Hugo? And the hamster? She couldn't just abandon them! No, she must resist! She must...

    Adrien's chuckle and wish for sweet dreams was the last thing she heard before drifting off into an easy sleep.

    Sleep deprivation: 2, Crush: 1

    ****

    His face turned into a bright red, matching the suit that, apparently, the girl sleeping next to him ran around in.

    Marinette was Ladybug! Ladybug was Marinette! He finally knew and it was the girl he dreamed it was all along and everything is perfect and-

    Oh shit, Marinette was going to kill him when she woke up!

    He knew the one thing he wasn’t supposed to know!

    Summary

    Adrien can't stop thinking about when Marinette kissed his "statue" as a joke. He isn't sure what the joke was, but maybe if he let her kiss him again, he'll find out?

    The problem is, she won't take any of the opportunities he gives her.

    Awwwwwww

    really cute fanfic after Puppeteer 2 The Adrien Statue Kiss scene. I really love this, it's so cute it's so sweet it's so romantically fluffy hehehe, I keep smiling. I just really love the whole vibe of this fic. I really enjoyed reading this awwwwwww

    I love Adrien so much in this, I LOVE THIS BRAND OF ADTIEN AGRESTE. I love this kinda Adrien characterization hehe. Adrien is a cinnamon roll, Hot mess adrien Agreste being so cute and innocent and naive and just trying to get his good friend Marinette to kiss him as proof of their friendship. Adrien "just a friend" Agreste. Adrien being obliviously pining over Marinette then realizing his feelings. Kinda reverse lovesquare. Adrien SIMPS

    also I just really love Adrien being obsessed with kissing Marinette in a "platonic friendly" way

     

     

    psychology friends normal things to do

    “Dude, what was that about?” Nino asked.

    Adrien slunk down in his seat. “I was just joking.”

    “You need to work on your jokes,” Nino replied, raising an eyebrow.

    “I made Marinette cry,” he mumbled.

    “She’ll be fine,” Nino assured him. “You know how she is. She gets in her own head too much sometimes.”

    Marinette eventually returned to the classroom, but refused to look at Adrien as she took her seat.

    --------
    Adrien sat ramrod straight in his seat, staring straight ahead as the wheel turned. It was…bizarre. Unlike him.

    Marinette glanced down to see his knuckles white as he clutched at the seat, and she remembered suddenly – Adrien doesn’t like small spaces.

    “Adrien,” she murmured. She bumped her hand into his. “It’s okay. Just breathe.”

    He slowly let out a long breath as he held onto her hand, interlacing their fingers. Marinette took slow, deep breaths with him. She could freak out about the hand-holding later, but right now, Adrien needed her.

    “You could have said something,” she said. “I would’ve waited on the ground with you if you didn’t want to be in here.”

    Summary

    Ladybug can't hide her shock (and anger) when she discovers that her partner is wearing a device for a dental correction that he definitely does NOT need.

    Neither Marinette manage to hide a second staggering shock when she discovers that Adrien is wearing the very same device, for the very same reason; his father's senseless request to fix his already perfect teeth.

    Aka the fic with an awkward, funny reveal full of self-indulgence, comfort and fluff.

    cute way to reveal lol, also calm identity reveal which is nice

    ....

    I just really loved the part with chat noir giving advice about boys to Marinette lol, especially the "boys are gross, even your buttercup. stop putting him on a pedestal, boysh will be boysh" that was cute lol also I kept imagining my crush and Adrien fusion, very nice visual.

    also, Adrien saying "I'm buttercup huh" was really nice hehe, I love Adrien

     

    psychology... hard difficult times, the feeling okay with others but depressed when alone/night... same like me... poor adrien

    His Lady's words had cheered him up a little, yet the soothing feeling didn't last long once he found himself alone in the dark... 

    As soon as the hero had left his partner, he'd started brooding again over the fact that his father had gone too far with such drastic measures.

    Summary

    “It’s not that bad,” Izuku says. “You get used to it after awhile.”
    The room goes so quiet he can hear Kaminari and Sero playing video games two doors down, and very quickly he realizes his mistake.
    “Deku-kun,” Uraraka starts slowly, like maybe she didn’t hear him right. “Did someone...did someone tell you to kill yourself?”
    (Or: Izuku's friends find out something about his past and know better than to leave it alone.)

    awwww.... good wholesome Gen oneshot about deku accidentally sharing a bit of his traumatic past, and the group being worried over him. good friends wholesome friendship tm with satisfying self-indulgent attention spotlight on izuku and hurt/comfort by friends.

    also. psychology normal friends psychology life things normal things to do. also I related to Todoroki like in the confused "am I cat/dog person" scene since I'm also slow and confused and quiet and Blunt like him. Also I related to Izuku's way of overthinking...?

     

    “Do I seem like more of a cat person or a dog person?” Izuku spares a moment from his English worksheet to glance over at Todoroki, who posed the question. He has to hold back a snicker when he sees how concentrated the other boy is on his phone, different colored eyebrows furrowed together. 

    Shinsou looks up from his book as well, a flicker of amusement crossing his normally passive features. “Neither. You’re a fish person.”

    “Really?” Todoroki frowns as Uraraka throws a pillow at Shinsou.

    “Don’t listen to him, Todoroki-kun! You’re a cat person, through and through.”

    “Uraraka, you should not be throwing things in other people’s rooms, especially not Midoriya’s. There are valuable collectables in here!” Iida starts gesturing with his hands, and briefly Izuku thinks that’s probably more of a threat to his stuff than the thrown pillow. 

    “It’s fine, Iida,” he says, laughing. “And I agree with Uraraka. Cat all the way.”

    Todoroki stares at him for a long moment. Then, slowly, he blinks.

    There’s a few seconds of silence before Shinsou says, “I guess you’re right,” and everyone bursts into laughter. Todoroki just looks confused, but the conversation moves on.

     

     

    Eventually Izuku turns back to his work, focusing his mind on the long list of irregular verbs (seriously, who created this language and was their intention to torture poor Japanese hero students specifically?) instead of his friends in the background. At least, until Tsuyu chimes in.

    Uraraka sounds genuinely upset, and it’s enough to pull at least a little bit of Izuku’s attention, even as he tries to figure out why feed becomes fed but feel becomes felt . 

     

     

    Izuku tries not to flinch (...) and doubles down on his efforts to focus on his studies. 

     

    His mind is half on the worksheet, half in the conversation, so when he hears the concern and anxiety in Uraraka’s voice, the words slip out before he can truly stop to think things through.

     

    “Deku-kun,” Uraraka starts slowly, like maybe she didn’t hear him right. “Did someone...did someone tell you to kill yourself?”

    His shoulders tense. Something deep inside him, something old and faded but always there (like scar tissue, he thinks) tells him he should just leave. Go so he doesn’t have to tell them. So they can’t reject him for his weakness, or worse. 

    Quickly, he forces that thought from his head. They’re not like that, he knows them, it’s fine . He turns to face them, avoiding their gazes, and wrings his hands nervously. 

    “Um, yes?” He tries to force a bit of casualness, his usual cheeriness, into his voice. When he accidentally meets Iida’s eyes and sees the mixture of shock and horror there, though, he figures it probably didn’t work

     

    “What do you mean?” All heads swivel to Todoroki, whose piercing gaze is still fixed on Izuku. “By ‘weren’t always nice about it’? What did they do?”

    “Todoroki,” Uraraka hisses a warning at the other boy before turning back to him. “Deku, you don’t have to—”

    “It’s okay,” he says (lies).

     

    The other boy shrugs, unbothered. “That’s what Uraraka says anytime one of us is complaining about someone else.”

    “But—” he scrubs at his face, groaning “—she’s not serious, Todoroki. When she says that, she’s just joking. Were you joking?”

     

     

    (The problem is, Izuku doesn’t know if that’s good enough. What does it matter if Bakugou’s trying to become a better person when the damage has already been done? But then, what right does Izuku have to stand in his way? What, because he called Izuku a few names and shoved him around a bit, Bakugou can never be a good person, a good hero? That’s—that’s the problem, he has too many conflicting feelings about this to ever truly—)

     

    “I just stopped crying, Uraraka!” 

    “It’s okay,” she says with a giggle, pulling gently at his hands so they’re looking each other in the eyes again. “That’s one of the things we love about you, Deku!” (And isn’t that strange—someone loving him for the things that had Bakugou calling him a loser for only a year ago?)

    Summary

    When Adrien starts showing more interest in Marinette, it should feel like a dream come true. And it would, except one thing keeps nagging at her:

    “Adrien doesn’t flirt,” Marinette proclaimed, ignited in the way one only was moments after several revelations had clicked into place. “Not with me and not with anyone else either. He never did any of this with Kagami, not even when they were dating. This is weird, Alya. Even if Adrien did just wake up one day with a crush on me—which I doubt—he wouldn’t be acting like this!”

    Really really nice short one-shot of misunderstandings identity shenanigans. Nice funny fluff

    I just really really love Adrien here lol, I really love the vibes, it reminds me of good romantic shirbert stuff. Smitten Adrien Agreste pining I love him so much. Like Marinette monologuing that *Adrien* would never flirt and being such a kind dork with the whole Adrien asking Mari to carry her bag scene, and also Adrien being dorky and complimenting Marinette on her hydrated cuticles
