Title: Luck of the Draw Author: Kryal Rating: T Genre: Gen Status: Complete Length: 1339 Summary: Link: Ao3 ff.net Don't think we have many Ladybug stories on DLP yet, haven't delved that far into the fandom yet and waiting for season 2 to come out on German Netflix before I truly dive into the pool there but from what I found the stories seem to be pretty good. This one was the best I have seen so far. I really love one-shots like this, when the author is able to spin concepts and hooks into compelling and thoughtful stories that just resonate. I honestly kept thinking about this story from time to time. The take on the magic and the people behind the masks over the course of centuries was fascinating and I really appreciate the thought and imagination the author put into this. It's short but very poignant. A/Ns can be hit or miss but this one was very much a hit and I would read actual essays by her. Same author who wrote that Stargate and ATLA crossover, btw. So yeah, 5/5, must read if you like Miraculous Ladybug. Not sure how much you'd get out of this if you don't know the source material, I think you should at least be somewhat aware of it but you don't need to have watched every episode or anything.
