The Agreste Academy of Arts is an exclusive school open to talented kids and teenagers of all ages around the globe. The dean is none other than famous, retired dancer Gabriel Agreste. Marinette Dupain-Cheng is a dancer at the school, but is only there because the dean knows her parents. She has talent, but has let her nervousness take over whenever she would be given the chance to prove herself. Worst of all, she has a heart aching crush on the dean's son, Adrien Agreste, who was already gaining popularity because of his father and who only considered Marinette as a friend.
When her friend, Tikki, convinces her to go to the dance club known as Miraculous, Marinette is very nervous since she hasn't break danced for years and worse, about being seen by someone she knew. Going to the club wasn't against the rules as a student of the academy, but it was frowned upon by the dean. To solve her problem, she dresses up as break dancer Ladybug. She had only planned on going to the club that one time...until she met Chat Noir, the famous dancer that all the ladies loved and all competition hated.
Soon enough, a ban is put on Miraculous from the students of the academy and Marinette is stuck between two worlds: being expelled from the school of her dreams or leaving the one place she can actually call home.
Based on the AU by Starrycove on Tumblr. I absolutely loveeee this AU and have been wanting to write my own fic about it for a while. Credit to the awesome @/megs-ils on Tumblr for the cover(permission given. Go give her a follow!) and credit to creators of Miraculous Ladybug for all characters unless new ones created by me. Enjoy!
