Rating: Teen and Up
Summary: At twenty-two-years-old, Marinette and Adrien’s lives are going well, especially now that the—as Adrien likes to put it—cat is out of the bag. Despite the occasional akuma attack and over-powered super villain, they wouldn’t trade anything for what they have.
But when an akuma jumps forward in time and pulls their younger-selves along with her, the couple soon have their hands full trying to prevent the Ladybug and Chat Noir of the past from learning anything that might completely destroy their happy future. As with any situation involving their secret identities, Adrien and Marinette have things completely under—wait. Scratch that. It is NOT going well.

The smell of chocolate in the kitchen was strong, even though the pastries on the counter behind her were already a day old. Trixx sat beside the box, polishing off her second croissant.
The coffee maker dinged, and Alya popped in the instant packet while simultaneously setting her mug beneath the spout.
In that moment, the small speaker sitting near the wall lit up as the news for the day faded out. A convincingly human-like voice then chimed, “Incoming call from Adrien Dupain-Cheng.”
