Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir

Back to Us by DarkReyna16 (Archive of Our Own Profile)
Adrien/Marinette, Alya/Nino
     After a reveal so shocking it rocks the core of Paris itself, the villain Hawk Moth is finally a great personal cost to heroes Ladybug and Chat Noir. With the city safe, they go their separate ways, returning to the lives they were forced to put on hold since receiving their Miraculous. Now, seven years later, Marinette Dupain-Cheng is on the rise, studying at the fashion college of her dreams by day, working at her dream internship by afternoon...and occasionally moonlighting as Ladybug by night. This routine is set so firmly in place that, once it's shattered by an old-yet-new enemy, and the reappearances of a cold friend and a hot partner, the whiplash threatens to send Marinette spiraling down into chaos. As Ladybug, she can do anything...but soon those limits will be tested, whether she is in or out of the costume.
     "But I think the cheesiest is definitely that first kiss at the top of a Ferris Wheel." Right on cue, the Ferris Wheel stopped for a few minutes, their seat slowly rocking back and forth at the very highest point. Marinette raised questioning eyes toward him, their faces only a breath away now. "I thought this was your first time on a Ferris Wheel?" she whispered, unable to tear her gaze away from his. His eyes darkened as he willed himself to grasp the moment, to finally take a long overdue leap of faith. "It is. And this is also my first kiss," Adrien whispered in a husky voice, before closing the heartbeat still lingering between them.

Both of You by Maerynn (FanFiction.Net Profile)
     Chat Noir finds Marinette sobbing on her balcony one night, very clearly upset. Concerned about his friend's well-being, Adrien goes out of his way as his alter-ego to put a smile back on her lips. As they both learn to know each other better, they both unveil secrets and newfound feelings. Will their unexpected blooming friendship be without consequences?
     In light of this, I would like to ask all of Paris to respect their pain, to let them heal in peace. Both of them have battle wounds of their own to nurse, both of them need time and space to properly mend their broken bodies. Instead, honor their sacrifice for our beloved city. Spread the word about how two eighteen-year-old defeated a supervillain on their own, a feat the entire Parisian police force couldn't achieve. Tell the miraculous tales of Ladybug and Chat Noir.

How to Bond With a Cat by Theonewhosawitall (Archive of Our Own Profile)
     Marinette didn't think twice when it came to saving Chat Noir's life, or taking his promise of repayment, so when Nino asked her to get Chat to act in his film with her, she obliged. Then he was lonely so of course she invited him for taste-testing at the bakery. Now Chat Noir is visiting weekly and Marinette likes having her best friend around, even though thing are getting messy.
     Tikki's heart beat faster. This was not how she was supposed to find out. It wasn't supposed to be one sided. They were supposed to defeat Hawkmoth, and take off their miraculous at the same time, so Plagg and Tikki could welcome Nooroo home. That's how it was in her mind. An utterly happy ending. Not like this. Never like this.

Nine Lives by P-Artsypants (FanFiction.Net Profile)
     When Adrien Agreste is scheduled to go to a Military School in Germany, Chat Noir must make a critical decision. Does he give up his Miraculous? Or does he give up his life as Adrien? I'll save you the trouble of guessing, he gives up being Adrien.
     "No! Chat! I need to see him! I saw him fall! I saw the fire! I—If he's gone, it's my fault!" "It's not—" "Yes it is!" She sobbed. Finally, she stopped running and hid within the beams of the Tower. "I couldn't live with myself if something happened to him." Her final dot blinked away, and Marinette remained, sobbing. "…Why?" Chat asked softly. "Because I love him!" She wailed.

Secrets and Betrayals by LilyTheNinjaGirl (FanFiction.Net Profile)
     When Ladybug and Chat Noir get into a fight, they end their friendship, each vowing that they never want to see the other again. But when Adrien, Marinette's school crush, disappears and she can't find Chat anywhere, she fears that Chat Noir has kidnapped Adrien out of rage. When she finds Chat beaten and bloody on a rooftop, will the two be able to trust each other again?
     "But on that first day, Chat Noir gave me hope. He had confidence in me, even at my worse. He made me want to fight. He showed me how good it felt to save people. I was lost without him, and he showed me how to follow my heart. Unfortunately, he, Adrien suffered the price for it. But if we're going to die here," she said firmly. "It will be in his honor. Because he wouldn't run away from this fight. He would fight until every bone in his body had shattered and every drop of blood had run out of his veins. And I refuse to give up, because then his love would go to waste. I don't deserve it," she paused. "But I'm sure as hell going to make sure he didn't waste it."

Smoulder by MidnightStarlightWrites (FanFiction.Net Profile)
Adrien/Marinette, Nathanael/OC
     Marinette traced her fingers down the smooth lines of the magazine, a blush creeping to her face. It wasn't just his toned, muscular body that set her aflame, although that was certainly a bonus. It was his eyes. The way his body appeared, languid like a summers day. His body said relax but his eyes said devour. She'd seen those eyes before...
     All at once she felt exhilarated and at peace as her next words bubbled nervously in her chest, ready. Chat gazed at her. Wonder and adoration filled every inch of his expression, his heart, his soul, as he watched the colours dance across her body, the light of the moon kissing her hair. She was so very beautiful and he yearned for her the way cherry blossoms yearned for spring, the way birds yearned for the sunrise, the way waves yearned for the shore, even though she was right in front of him. So close. So far. "What do I have to do?" His voice was quieter than a whisper, but it reached her and Ladybug smiled, tilting her chin up toward him, knowing what she was about to say would change their dynamic forever, and for the first time in three years, not caring one bit. For now, she was done being scared. "You have to find me first."

Truthful Scars by frostedpuffs (Archive of Our Own Profile)
     Adrien Agreste has never been an expert in controlling his emotions. When feelings for his classmate in pigtails begin to arise, he can't stop himself from seeing her any chance he gets—even when wearing a pair of cat ears and a black tail. Although his affections are strong and true, he doesn't exactly know how to deal with them, especially under the watchful eye of his father. After all, what's a boy to do when he accidentally finds out that the girl he's got a crush on returns his feelings?
     And then the most wonderful thing happened—the most wonderful sound Adrien had ever heard—Marinette giggled. She blushed and she giggled and for some odd reason, Adrien felt his heartbeat quicken, followed by a fluttering of something within his chest. Something light, something warm... Something that made him feel fuzzy yet like a puddle at the same time. Oh, man. Oh man. Oh man oh man oh man oh boy oh my goodness oh wow.

Wingless by spectaclesandbooks (FanFiction.Net Profile)
     The last person Marinette wants to discover her secret, is of course, the first one who does. But what price will Marinette have to pay to buy Chloe's silence? And what toll will it take on her and those around her? Namely, one very worried kitty cat... LadyNoir/Marichat, etc. Angst, fluff and all kinds of fun
     "Is he… uh... well, how old is he?" "Ah-ah-ah!" Tikki waggled an antennae in the form of teasing scolding. "I can't tell you that! I promised, remember?" Marinette groaned. "Fine. What can you tell me? Please, anything." Tikki seemed to calm down at the desperation in Mari's voice. She fluttered over to the girl, placing her hands on her cheeks. "It's good, Mari." She informed her charge solemnly. "Really good. Promise."
