    Summary

    Alya's limits are tested when Marinette casts aside an amazing opportunity, solely because it comes from Lila.

    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

    “Now, now,” Snufkin told himself. “It could be a coincidence…”

    A coincidence, that a poem with the exact same title and opening lines as his own work had made its way to publication? Unlikely.

    Snufkin didn’t have his original copy to compare the stolen poem against. He only enjoyed writing poetry. Afterwards, he never really wanted to revisit it or share it. He just left the old notebook behind somewhere and procured a new one, ready to start again.

    There was no denying the familiarity, though. After hearing it in Moominpappa’s voice, he couldn’t remember when or where he penned it, but the work was certainly his.

    That didn’t solve the issue of how this De Hemulton fellow had come to claim it as his own, or why.

    Summary

    Marinette may be the one Lila declared herself at “war” with, but she’s not the only victim. Or even the one who would be the worst off for it if things continued. After all, more than one person would be suffering from the toxicity.

    In which Lila can be outed any number of ways, there are real results of Lila’s manipulations, and people besides Marinette have to deal with consequences of poor choices.
