Troublemaker is On Task is an Alternate Universe Fic made by RockSunner, for Miraculous Ladybug. Part of the Smart Adversaries AU for Miraculous Ladybug on AO3, in which Ladybug villains make smarter decisions. The series has a tropes page here.
This is a one-chapter work.
This fanfiction series contains examples of:
- Alternate Universe Fic: A What If? with the change that Troublemaker takes both earrings from Ladybug when she first has the chance.
- Bittersweet Ending: It may seem like fluff Ladybug and Chat Noir know each other's secret identities, but Hawk Moth knows who Ladybug is, and that's never good in these stories.
- Stations of the Canon: This story stays very close to the canon except for the identity knowledge transfer.
- The Unmasking: Ladybug's secret identity is exposed to Hawk Moth and Chat Noir. Then Chat Noir reveals to Ladybug.
