Scene: Marinette's room.
Marinette: Dear diary, today Cat Noir and I managed to stop a supervillain once again! The Magician of Misfortune wanted to make the Eiffel Tower vanish in a puff of smoke! Can you imagine? Luckily, we were there to stop him, but I was late for school, and I arrived in the middle of a test with Miss Bustier!
Miss Bustier: That’s it Marinette. Go to the principal’s office!
Marinette: She gave me a note for my parents to sign, again.
Sometimes it's hard being both Marinette and Ladybug. Of course, I love being a superheroine and it’s awesome to protect Paris against Hawk Moth and save all these innocent victims. But on the other hand, I always have to come up with excuses to explain why I'm late or absent to Mom and Dad, to my teachers and even to my best friend Alya. I can't even tell you how many stories I have to make up since school started!
Besides, every time a new villain shows up, I have to disappear discretely and go and fight them! When I find a place to hide, I say "Tikki, spots on! Yeah!"
And BAM! I turn into Ladybug! With my super suit made out of indestructible fabric and my magic Yo-yo!
I can't let anyone see Tikki, my kwami, who never leaves my side. Without Tikki, I can't transform. She gives me my powers.
And I can do incredible stuff with my Yo-yo! The string goes on forever and I can use it to move around or tie up my opponents– I can even make it super fast to use it as a shield!
My mission's to capture the Villain's Akuma to stop them. The Akuma is an evil black butterfly that turns people into bad guys.
But with my magic Yo-yo, I can conjure up an item that will help me. I just have to say "Lucky Charm!"
Each time, something weird appears.
Ladybug: A bath towel? A record?
Marinette: And I have to understand how to use it.
Ladybug: A spoon? No more evil doing for you, little Akuma!
Marinette: Then, I can capture the Akuma with my magic Yo-yo.
Ladybug: Time to de-evilize!
Marinette: And transform it back to a harmless butterfly.
From "Stormy Weather".
Ladybug: Miraculous Ladybug!
My ultimate power is that once I defeated the Villain, I throw my Lucky Charm in the air to save Paris! You see, there’s no time to get bored between my missions, school, my parents, my friends, Adrien and the supervillains, I’m always on the run. But being Ladybug is really amazing!
Mom and Dad are back home. I have to ask them to sign the note I got this morning for being late. What am I going to tell them? Well I'll find something– I'm starting to get used to it. Bye for now, dear diary!
