Adrien and Marinette are playing a dangerous game of Relationship Chicken. He's still madly in love with Ladybug, and Marinette has sworn off dating because of a secret she won't tell anyone. So they're not dating. So what if they spend all their time together? So what if he spends the night several times a week? It's not a relationship. It's FRIENDSHIP. With a few added perks. Marinette just happens to be the one person who knows his secrets, and he misses her when she's gone. She just happens to have had a huge crush on him when they were younger. That's the past.
Oh, these poor foolish children. With university, jobs, and superhero work happening, while trying to navigate adulthood and a secret non-relationship, they've got quite the year ahead of them, and the real drama hasn't even started yet.
This is a no-powers AU wherein Marinette and Adrien meet while studying abroad in Berlin.
It's mostly Adrinette, with maybe some past relationships in one-shots, and a side of DJWifi.
I try to avoid getting OCs overly involved in the plot, but I also am not about to throw half of their class in the fic just because I can't think of OCs. So there are OCs, but they have minor roles, or are in one-shots.
