Lady Fairy

Marinette is blind and getting through life like a normal person. Well except for the fact that she's blind and has hearing that's above average. When Stone Heart attacks Marinette finds a strange box on her desk. What's gonna happen now?

Lady Fairy is a Miraculous Ladybug fanfic by I_dont_know_whats_going_on_either. The story can be found on Archive of Our Own here.

Lady Fairy provides examples of:

  • Adaptation Personality Change: Marinette is noticeably calmer than her canon counterpart.
  • Adaptation Relationship Overhaul: In-canon, Marinette, Kagami and Adrien are stuck in a three-person Love Dodecahedron; Marinette and Kagami are love rivals over their crush on Adrien, who in-turn has a crush on Ladybug (unaware that she is Marinette) and settles with Kagami when he (as Chat Noir) is turned down by Ladybug (who does not know that he is Adrien). Here, both Kagami and Adrien are crushing on an unaware Marinette.
  • Adaptational Context Change: In-canon, Riposte was created when Kagami lost to Adrien in a fencing match and her sword becomes possessed by an akuma. Here, she is created from Kagami's rage at Lila for threatening Marinette and her fencing-helmet becomes possessed by an amok.
    • In canon, Alya becomes Rena Rouge when Ladybug gives her the Fox Miraculous. Here, she is a creation of the Butterfly Miraculous.
  • Adaptational Sexuality: After Marinette convinces Tomoe to allow her daughter more freedom, Kagami ends up developing a crush on her.
  • Adaptational Superpower Change: The command Marinette used to activate the Butterfly Miraculous is "Nooroo make my heart flutter!" instead of "Nooroo dark wings rise!" like in canon, and heroes created from its power are able to purify amoks. This is a power revealed to be attributed to Marinette specifically and not the Butterfly Miraculous.
    • Amoks can multiply exponentially if they aren't captured and purified just like akuma in canon.
  • Composite Character: Riposte was created from Kagami's rage against Lila, an origin for Kagami's second akumatized form Onichan in canon.
  • Decomposite Character: Because the villain of the story possesses the Peacock Miraculous while Marinette uses the Butterfly Miraculous for good, the various Akumatized villains are instead sentimonsters while their canon-selves are selected to be the Champions meant to stop them.

  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Marinette seems to have a talent for this. First she manages to get through to Kagami's mother to allow her daughter more freedom by using her natural gift for magic to allow her to see her husband and daughter's faces in a photograph for the first time and later the same for Gabriel and Adrien by quoting his absent wife.
  • Dramatic Irony: In-canon, Marinette is famous for being a klutz. Here, Marinette has much more grace despite being blind, managing to guess where objects are despite her disability. Nooroo and Master Fu claim that this is a sign that she has her own magic.
  • Disabled in the Adaptation: Marinette is blind in this version of the story.
  • For Want of a Nail: Marinette is blind and wields the Butterfly Miraculous instead of the Ladybug Miraculous.
    • After Marinette convinces Tomoe Tsurugi to allow her daughter more freedom, she starts by allowing her to attend Marinette's school.
  • In Spite of a Nail: Both Chloe and Lila treat Marinette relatively the same despite the fact that the latter is blind (which in a way makes both of them worse).
  • Telepathy: Nooroo is capable of speaking with Marinette silently and can even transmit images into her head.
