    Summary

    Marinette was like warm sunshine on a Spring morning, drawing the land back to life. She warmed the world with her very presence, brought light and comfort, fed those around her with genuine sincerity of love and patience. She was brilliant like the first bloom, and as tireless as the stout tree with embracing limbs.

     

     

     

    Subtle magicks were, as always, the most powerful.

    Summary

    Chat Noir shrugs. "You looked upset today."

    Marinette snorts, not asking when Chat Noir noticed; she doesn't remember seeing him. "I wonder why."

    "Same, only without sarcasm. I hate it when you're hurting."

    Something clogs in her chest: rocks damming a stream.

    "Nothing's wrong," Marinette says, biting down the following 'chaton'. "You can't help with this and you shouldn't try. I just…" She sniffles. "Just need to put on my big girl panties and get over myself."

    Sad-eyed, he asks, "Would a hug help?"

    Yes. "No."

    His face falls. Something rings false about that, in the same way his brightest smiles look wrong. "Oh," he says; the disappointment sounds sincere. "Because I had a crap day too, and I know a hug would help me, and—"

    Marinette grabs his hand and tugs him down to the lounge chair. She hurts him enough. She won't let him stay worse hurt than she can help.


    Days after fighting the Puppeteer in the Grévin Museum, Chat Noir comes to try to help his still-upset friend; when their conversation strikes her vulnerabilities, Marinette must consider drastic measures to minimize the damage an akumatized Ladybug could do.
