Summary:

Ladybug doesn't believe Chat Noir's gym-socks-and-buttered-popcorn aroma is the result of Plagg's Camembert obsession. And she knows she smells sweet, but she also knows she lives, uh, near a bakery; it's nothing to do with Tikki at all.

...Well, it's probably going to be a strategic benefit if they know how to handle each other's powers, right?

The next morning at school, now...

Progress on writing "stake everything", 5:10p, an hour after I opened a draft intending to make story words happen: ~1/4–1/3 of the living/dining area is vacuumed. I fall down nao.

(Okay part of my problem is "stake everything" is going to be very lead balloonish if I don't convey Adrien's emotions with at least as much clarity and finesse as I did in "this is a gift", but I'm not entirely sure I know how I did that!)

Progress 6:10p: more of this carpet is vacuumed than not

Dear tablet autocarrot, if you persist in turning my "in"s into "I"s—and yes I fucking saw you; turning all my "with"s to "will"s does not help your case—then I will have you fucking executed.

ETA: solved!

"Style Queen" shows us what happens when Plagg uses his power without routing it through Adrien. I don't doubt that Plagg was trying to keep a lid on the damage; he succeeded less well than in "Catalyst", but, you know, unlike in "Catalyst", in "Style Queen" Adrien was plausibly dead. But honestly that makes it worse, knowing that an upset kwami is a more dangerous kwami.

Tikki and Plagg are equal partners. Equally powerful.

(Plagg is canonically responsible for the Chicxulub impact. You know, the K-Pg boundary. The end of the Cretaceous.)

I remain of the opinion that of the pair, the Cat Miraculous is more likely to be misused. Cataclysm has more predictable effects than Lucky Charm.

But [personal profile] silveradept says—I'm not sure I agree, but for purposes of this fic I'm happy to roll with it—the Ladybug Miraculous gone rogue is the scarier.

What would happen if a pretty upset Tikki used her power without routing it through Marinette?

...

Yes, this relates to [personal profile] opensummer's WIP meme thread.

Drop one of these bad boys in a comment and I will respond, without editing:
  • FIRST — the first two sentences of my current project
  • LAST — the most recently written two sentences of my current project
  • NEXT — the next line. meaning i will finish the sentence I’m on and write a new one, which you’ll get.
  • [insert prompt here] — you post a prompt, and i’ll write three sentences based on that prompt, set in the same time/setting as my current project
  • THE END — i’ll make up an ending, or post the ending if i’ve written it
  • BEFORE THE BEGINNING — three sentences (or more) about something that happened before the plot of my current project
  • POV — something that’s already happened, retold from another character’s perspective
Meme provided by [community profile] journalmemes.

I should also note that if you don't want to glimpse a massive angstfest, it's currently wise to say so.

I miss when I could pretend not to be disabled long enough to vacuum the whole house.

By which I mean my parents' house. Which, even excluding 3/4 of the bedrooms, is rather bigger than this one!

Summary:
"Hey Hawkmoth, Take A Bath Before We're All Extinct (or, Stormy Weather Would Not Have Stopped)"
—μcat, Schrödinger’s Miraculous: physics in the City of Heroes (may work differently when observed)
It was Mme. Mendeleiev's fault, really. She liked bringing current events into her lesson plans, and μcat the superhero-science blogger had done a lot of research and a lot of math in the four days after the second go-round with Stormy Weather. Marinette, looking at all the equations and cited sources and clear, concise prose salted with wordplay, wondered if μcat had slept at all in those four days. If she focused on how long it must have taken them to read each article, run each set of numbers, write each paragraph, then she had no attention to spare for the words "extinction event", and needn't think about what it meant here and now. What it implied. What it must have taken to make it not.

(Adrien whisked Aurore out of the classroom the moment he saw the essay title. He then casually leaned on the door frame, blocking Chloé from following. Marinette should have thought of those herself.)

Marinette lasted two more days before she cracked.

I'm writing "Stormy Weather 2" out of the Miraculous Ladybug canon.

Also I'm going to make "Stormy Weather 2 What Stormy Weather 2" an AO3 tag. It is going on all my future ML fics that do not explicitly deal with this episode.

Hey, do I know anyone affiliated with a Girl Scout doing online cookie sales (with, one hopes, ship-directly-to-buyer as a delivery option) in the Little Brownie Bakers region? I wanna buy a bunch of Thin Mints.

Just now I opened a tab to my Facebook feed. I was required to log back in, and I was not able to access the site until I either accepted Facebook's decision on a post of mine they hid from view or requested manual review of that decision.

The post in question is my share, without comment, of a blog post entitled "She's Fucking Nine", by Sunflower Punk on the Orbit. Content notes: the post describes an unnamed man sexually harassing Sunflower Punk's nine-year-old daughter.

Facebook community standards, as cited in this screenshot, suggest Facebook wishes to create an atmosphere free of "intimidation and exclusion", free of bigoted attacks based on such characteristics as race and gender. Facebook is also, I'm certain, an organization with children's safety as a core value. Sunflower Punk attacked no one in this post. They only discussed an incident of gendered, likely race-based (Sunflower Punk and their daughter are Puerto Rican) harassment directed at a nine-year-old. Since Sunflower Punk did nothing wrong here, only called attention to this incident, I am at a loss for what I did wrong by sharing the post.

I requested manual review.

(If y'all want to show support for Sunflower Punk and their daughter, their Patreon &c are linked from that post. Signal boosting this or any other of Sunflower Punk's work is also great.)

Me: I want to do something that isn't refreshing my social media a million times, rereading a fanfic or fifteen again, and doesn't need me to think very hard or care very much or keep my mind on the task at hand very well.

Me: Oh hey, Pokémon Indigo League is on Netflix.

Me: ...This show is a vastly different experience at thirty than it was at ten...

"Origins" is at the start of the school year, presumably the first week of September.

"Stormy Weather" is on "the first day of summer", which might (depending on definition) be as early as mid-May but is most likely June 21 or 22.

"Dark Cupid", which must be after "Stormy Weather" judging by Ladybug and Chat Noir's comfort with their abilities and each other, is definitely Feb 14.

"Santa Claws" is definitely Dec 25.

Marinette turned fourteen in "Befana", unless her parents misspoke and she didn't feel impelled to correct them that she was newly fifteen (I think the cake candle count backs the smaller number but I'd have to check a screenshot). If we're including timeline data from the webisodes, this is the second birthday she's had since "Origins".

Either Marinette's math is off or Adrien, who by all indications turned fourteen back in "The Bubbler", is still fourteen in "Chris Master".

Apparently this is all during their troisième year?

Summary:

"Answer one question truthfully and I'll never touch the subject again, if that's what you want," Ladybug promised. "Will it help you if I leave this be, or will it just keep hurting you?"

Chat Noir shoved her away. "Why do you care?" he demanded, eyes flashing with green fire. "You're perfect as is, obviously, even when you don't care—so why do you?"

So this had something to do with her. "Of course I care, Chat! You're my partner!" But he knew that, didn't he? He knew that meant she cared about him as much as anyone and a lot more than most, even if she couldn't show it well for their own safety.

Didn't he?
