    Summary

    The opera ghost really existed. He was not— as long believed— a creature of the imagination of the artists, the superstition of the managers, or a product of the absurd and impressionable brains of the young ladies of the ballet, their mothers, the box-keepers, the cloak room attendants, or the concierge. Yes— he existed in flesh and blood, although he assumed the complete appearance of a real phantom: that is to say of a spectral shade. The opera ghost was unequivocally alive; at least in the eyes of Marinette Dupain-Cheng.

    When she first arrived at Monsieur Agreste’s House of Opera the mere notion of a secret phantom was laughable: ghosts do not exist. To her, they were merely characters in the stories papa would (at one time) read her. Phantoms and ghosts alike were ways to get children to behave— to leave their parents alone— to give them one semblance of peace. As a young girl Marinette already knew this; hence, even something as mysterious as the creaking in the ceiling, or the sudden disappearance of the show’s leading lady could be chalked up to rats and last minute jitters—that is until he started teaching her.

    Summary

    What if ML were in the DC Universe?
    What if Marinette wasn't human, but an adopted Kryptonian that Superman entrusted to Sabine and Tom?
    What if she successfully refused the Ladybug miraculous?
    Wouldn't Rose make such an adorable Ladybug?

    Summary

    Sweet Marinette Dupain-Cheng. Extrovert Chloé Bourgeois. And shy Juleka Couffaine.

    These girls are all facing the hardships of life, but in different ways. They're slowly breaking down and dying inside. They're screaming, crying and begging for release, begging to be free.

    Suddenly, one day in class when the signs are showing, a force pushes their heads towards each other, telling them to come together and hold each other up and as they push through their journeys. But that force grows stronger when things of supernatural or magic start happening to them.

    Marinette has visions and can see things others can't. Chloe has telepathy and can control minds, and Juleka can manipulate things around her. Next, they slowly become extremely beautiful, which bewilders them all.

    Then a woman who descends from the heavens in front of them claims that she's their mother and that they hold the same powers as she does, with their own special abilities. At first, they think they're dreaming but come to terms that they're actually sisters and the daughter of this Goddess.

    This is their journey.

    Summary

    Life is like a balance. One side is positive, while the other is negative. For every positive, there is a negative. And while it might seem like at times there is more of one side happening to you, the weight of those contrasting ideas is equal. Everything happens so that it can balance out the scale. If one side gets too heavy, the universe restores that balance.

    Simple.

    Except it's not.

    Marinette found that out very quickly.
    Meeting Alya - Positive
    Lila - Negative
    Oro Spots and Chat Noir - Positive
    The classes reactions - Back to a negative

    Except it gets harder to decipher these things. What if meeting someone was positive until they stab you in the back? What if someone who causes you so much pain ends up getting you to appreciate the people who love you? What if only half of the situation was positive while the other was negative? What if a situation makes you realize the qualities of the people who you want to be around?

    This is the story of how Marinette learned to be beautifully broken.

    Or what if Marinette was never Ladybug?

    Summary

    (Based on an idea that came to me at 1 am)
    What if a peacock miraculous holder didn't have to be blue? What if a shyer holder got the coloring of a peahen instead?

    Meanwhile, Marinette's friends worry about her dizzy spells, exhaustion and- did she just cough up blood?!

    Summary

    [Jī bùkě shī, shí bù zàilái] This Chinese proverb states "Opportunity knocks at the door only once". It means many things. The one chance that her brother's friends have to make things right in her eyes. The one chance to show Chat Noir how he's supposed to act while in the heat of battle. The one chance to put that foreigner in her rightful place.

    Marinette was gifted with the Tiger Miraculous to protect her brother's back in the heat of battle just as she does in her everyday life. Between personal responsibilities and being Azrael, Marinette 'Miling' Dupain-Cheng is ready to take down whatever Hawkmoth and the foreigner try. And somehow getting Agreste to leave her life well enough alone. . . And throwing Chat Noir off of the Eiffle Tower... Out a window... Into the Seine. . . She wasn't picky.

    Summary

    Princess Marinette wasn’t your stereotypical princess. No way would anyone ever put her in that category! People would rather call her a klutz, a piece of royalty who stuck out like a fish out of water. Her ideal fantasies of becoming the perfect princess seemed light years away. Even when she tried to ace all the classes her parents set for her, she failed, once, twice, a million times, at being perfect, prim, and proper. At the point of her life she was in, you would easily be able to look at her and determine the forty five things she’s mastered in comparison to a blaring fifteen hundred things she hasn’t.

    When all hope seemed lost for everyone in the country of France, Queen Sabine and King Tom decided to host another ball just for Marinette. Finally, there was a chance for Marinette to finally marry someone of royal blood and learn to rule effectively. The future of Paris would be perfect, that was to say if Marinette would actually choose someone other then the person she kept insisting on.

    Aspik is no Chat Noir, and nothing will make Marinette believe differently. Period.

    Summary

    Marinette has always been physically weak, constant trips to the hospital have been the norm for her since she was very little. Her lungs have had issues with taking in enough since birth and her legs have completely paralysed from the waist down since she was age ten with seemingly no causing factor. Marinette feels bored, broken and tired, seeing the same view from her hospital window day after day just to be relocated every few years to a new hospital has taken a toll on her, she feels useless, she feels like a burden.
    They say she's getting better.
    She doesn't believe them.
    After a checkup on a rather busy day she finds an odd box on her bedside table that she doesn't recognise, but this little box (and the god hidden inside of it) will change her life forever and let her see everything she was unable to see before.
    This is the story of Mariposa, the girl behind the heroes.

    Summary

    Kagami Tsurugi never asked to become Ladybug. She never asked to become Paris's protector. She never asked to carry the weight of a whole city on her shoulders.

    Marinette Dupain-Cheng didn't have superpowers, but she had a warm smile and an open heart, and sometimes that's enough.
