    Summary

    As Marinette tries to deal with the burden of guardianship, she pushes everyone that cares about her away.

    Adrien is determined to help Marinette and have her know that she's not alone.

    He noticed how much quieter she's become, he noticed how her beautiful bluebell eyes were dull, he noticed the bags under them and he noticed how every time someone requests to hang out with her, she makes up a flimsy excuse and runs off. How is he supposed to help her if Marinette is avoiding him?

    And what happens if they both get hit by an Akuma that shows your biggest regret?

    Summary

    Things appear to be going downhill for poor Marinette as she puts up with the incessant attacks by her classmates, and is affected by the reluctance of Adrien. She teams up with Chloe Bourgeois, forming an unlikely comradery between the two, albeit strained.

    Meanwhile, Ladybug is sick of the treatment she is given by Chat Noir and confides in Tikki, who suggests something unlikely and unheard of.

    Summary

    Marinette and Richard Grayson never had the easiest life. They were acrobats, traveling with the circus. It was fun, but it wasn't very productive for making friends. Marinette inspired friendship and kindness from everyone. But Dick never had things as easily as he perceived them to be for his little sister.

    Now, years after the death of their parents and their subsequent separation, Dick has finally found her again. And with her, a liar. But if Marinette Grayson learned one thing in her time in foster care? It was how to take care of herself. And having the God of destruction nestled into her pocket doesn't hurt any either.

    TW: Mentions of sex, alluding to (possible future chapters discussing) emotional abuse, scenes containing mention of blood and other triggering themes.

    Summary

    The nights in Gotham city had seen a lot. The blood of superheroes and villains alike. The cries of young children who could never go home. The maniacal laughter of villains and the screams of heartbroken heroes. The running feet of people who didn't want to be found.

    Pixie was a ghost. And a good one at that. No one knew who she was or where she came from. Just that three years ago, she appeared on the streets of Gotham. She's perfectly satisfied with her life, working and taking care of three disabled street kids. But Jonathan Kent walks into her life and suddenly she's remembering.

    Some things are better left forgotten. Pixie hates who Marinette Dupain-Cheng was. She will never be like that again. Not ever. But with a blue eyed Adonis and a stubborn boy wonder turning her life upside down, she's not sure where she stands anymore. But she can handle a few boys. Right?

    Summary

    “Princess Justice, I am Hawkmoth. People believed the lies told to them by a serpent, I give you the power to expose those lies. In return, bring me Ladybug’s earrings and Chat Noir’s ri-”

    “Shut. Up.” Marinette snarled. 

    Gabriel had spoken with Marinette before, but even then, when she had snapped at him, he never heard this kind of malicious tone and quite frankly, was grateful that he wasn’t the one that anger was directed at.

    Summary

    Marinette understands exactly what would happen if she were ever akumatized. She can't imagine a world where she lets everyone down like that. She's constantly bottling up those emotions, refusing to let them explode.

    Except Lila crosses a line when it comes to family.

    "Bully." They call her.

    If they want her to be a bully so bad, she'll show them a bully.

    Summary

    Oh Boy!! I can't wait to write this one! These specific types of fics are hard to come by (here is a gem I dug up: https://archiveofourown.org/works/22901833/chapters/54739732 you're welcome!). So, I decided to write this fic. I don't own anything other than the story and a few possible O.Cs of mine. This should be fun!

    After Hawkmoth and Mayura were defeated by Ladybug and her team of superheroes, things didn't go as planned. Adrien went into grief and disappeared altogether. Marinette was being bullied by Lila and her former classmates. Kagami takes pity on poor Marinette and helps her move to Japan where she can get a fresh start. Marinette takes the Miracle box and all the Miraculous with her, hoping to never use them. She also fakes her suicide, to make sure no one will pursue her. She then settles into her new apartment in Shibuya and enrolls in the local high school, Shujin Academy. Marinette hopes to start a brand new life in Japan, but fate has other plans in mind. Join Marinette as she becomes a phantom thief of justice, makes new friends, and so much more!

    A/N: I will update every friday!

    Summary

    I've always wondered what Lila and Marinette working with Chloe would look like.

    Marinette made friends with Alya. Her other group, her anti-bullying group, was disbanded temporarily. No bullies meant no reason to exist, right? But when Alya begins demanding free commissions from Marinette, things get... dicey.

    When the class sees that Marinette, albeit grudgingly, begins gifting Alya free clothes, free pastries, and does favors for Alya without the need for Alya to repay her, the entire class begins asking her to do the same. Her anti-bullying group urges her to bring them back into play, but Marinette refuses at first. But when Alya goes too far, as far as accusing her of purposely avoiding Alya and "seeing Marinette with two older guys," Marinette is livid.

    She brings Lila and Chloe, her two biggest "rivals" back into play. The three of them publicly come out as best friends, and their true colors are revealed. Watch out, Francois-Dupont. The Queens are back, and they're ready to strike back hard.

    Summary

    Marinette Dupain-Cheng needs a break, but nobody wants to give her one. Juggling school, Ladybug, the pressures of her peers, and Lila's lies, she's, to be perfectly honest, a mess. The only one who seems to notice is Felix, and what can he do? All Marinette will say is "It's fine." "No problem!" "Sure, I can do that for you."

    So when Lila goes too far one day, and Marinette is akumatized, it's...terrifying, really. How easy it is to slip away into the madness (very briefly) and become Manynette. With Marinette's nine personalities rampaging around Paris, will anyone be around to help Manynette get herself back together?

    Summary

    Were you looking for an actual fanfiction? Nah fam, this is a crack fiction made up mostly of Twitter shitposts, small battle shorts where my OC and my friend's OC roast the fuck out of Hawkmoth's fashion choices, and where the OC's snatch Ladybug and Chat Noir for themselves.

    This has no structure whatsoever, so enjoy if you like scattered storylines :3

    Princess Justice will make them pay, and she doesn’t plan on being merciful.

    TRIGGER WARNING

    If Lila so much as looked at her wrong, she swore, she’d launch the bitch out the window. She was not in the mood to deal with the sausage-haired idiot, much less for her herd of sheep she dragged around with her.

    Summary

    “I think I’m much happier being appreciated by a couple real friends than a thousand fake ones, Mari.” Ashli’s voice carried a teasing tone.

    In the distance, Marinette could see Collège Françoise Dupont. Her mind briefly wandered to her old friends, to her transfer, and to how she found herself here, looking out into the distance with the most popular girl of Rosenhart Academy for the Gifted.

    “Yeah.” Marinette agreed. “I think I’m happier that way, too.”

    OR:
    Marinette gives up, and finds herself much happier than she was trying to float a sinking ship of naïve classmates.

    Updates every week! Usually. Hopefully. Maybe.
