    Summary

    There's a Tumblr post by trickerydickerydock, in Venom fandom: superhero peril tropes and tell them where your boyfriend is, Eddie.

    Adrien has been held for ransom before, and he knows the routine: be patient, don't annoy anyone who's armed, and wait for the police to find a solution that the kidnapper(s) don't want his father thinking is an option.

    But this time Adrien wasn't the only one taken. He wasn't even the primary target; that would be Chat Noir's only known civilian friend, the only person he's ever paid attention to after hearing her declare her love for him. Since all anyone knows Adrien is to Ladybug is her celebrity crush, he might be an afterthought, or just an annoyance along for the ride. And he still has his ring.

    Hawkmoth probably hasn't seen that or any Tumblr post. (Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra. Tell them where your boyfriend is, Eddie.) Has Marinette?

    Summary

    "What's this got to do with you wanting help breaking your heart of your boy?"

    "He's not my boy." Ladybug leaned against him, one arm still holding her knees to her chest. "I'm not sure he even knows I'm interested. If he does, he's ignoring it with all his might." (Chat spared a moment to silently curse this callous little fool, whoever he was.) "But I can't think about much else."

    (Callous little fool who didn't even want to know what a priceless treasure as Ladybug's heart was right there for his taking, if only he were willing to offer anything of himself in return. If only he were willing to notice her.)

    "That's the problem, Chaton." She sounded so tired. "There's so much I need to think about, and all I'm thinking about is him. There's so much I need to do, and most of what I'm doing is increasingly desperate schemes to get his attention. If he'd just tell me no, I think I could stop. If I knew for sure he doesn't want me, it would hurt for a while, but then I could be done." She lifted their joined hands to her cheek; it wasn't a kiss to his hand, but it was tantalizingly close. "And then I could do my job better. Right?"

    Summary

    Marinette was grinding her teeth in aggravation now, raising her hand to knock again, when the door finally opened. Out of breath and clearly frazzled stood a man, about her age, his probably-blonde hair darkened with what looked like soot and his maybe-green eyes hidden behind smudged glasses. Add in the tomato splattered gray shirt and ripped jeans that weren’t faring much better, and Marinette was comfortable enough to label the boy a hot mess.
    Her anger immediately drained away at the far-too-innocent look on his face, and when he opened his mouth and started to speak, she had to forgive him for interrupting her process. He was clearly having a far worse day than she.
    “Hi.”

    Summary

    Adrien rubbed the back of his neck and didn't meet her eyes. "Sooo I kind of had a fight with my father. The part where the art room social scene comes in is, I told him I'm done modeling for anything but romance novel covers. And he doesn't believe me."

    "…Romance novel covers," Marinette repeated slowly, imagination filling with Adrien in a charcoal suit waltzing with a woman in a crimson silk gown. Adrien in a pirate ship's crow's nest, poet shirt open to show his defined pecs and abs, with the black-and-red-garbed pirate queen. Adrien, blue-jeaned and shirtless and wielding a broadsword, with—

    "The thing is—and this," Marc added, "is the part where Loverboy is getting all flustered—the thing is, romance novels, as a general rule, have two protagonists."

    "Both of whom," continued Nathaniel while eyeing Marinette, "ought to be on the cover. Otherwise readers will get confused about the genre."

    "Subtle," said Marinette. "Adjective. Antonyms include Marc and Nathaniel."
