Ever since we found out that Ladybug and cat noir could use powerups, people have begun to wonder why they don’t use them more often in fights, well, the answer is quite simple really , its not just because its a power which needs to saved for special occasions, but because they don’t have very many to eat to use, let alone share with the other heroes, on a regular bases and unfortunately they can’t just easily make more potions to mix in with the macaroons and cheese, because they don’t know the ingredients!
When master Fu translated parts of the Grimoire which specified the list of ingredients to make the potions, people forget that all the info he translated was in his tablet, but when Hawkmoth finally tracked down master Fu in “Heart Hunter” he not only took the miracle box, but the tablet as well!
And without the Tablet, Marinette was left with no other choice but to use what little she had learned from Fu to decipher the grimoire all over again. Marinette was barely learning how to decipher and translate the grimoire before master Fu lost his memory, and even though she doesn’t have his tablet of what was already translated, she did have the printed copy of the grimoire from her lessons with Fu.
Fu translated enough of the grimoire to uncover the recipes for the powerup potions, however, even he needed to figure out just what each ingredient was, the ingredients in the book have never been straight forward,
“A branch from the Dragon kings garden, that’s seaweed”
“Secret kept in a shell, that’s an oyster pearl”
‘“Dust from the sky, now precious, will fix the wings of the injured animal"
And so in “Mr. pigeon 72″ when Ladybug is seen going full blown chemist mode, mixing the various ingredients in a pot, we see that she wasn’t just trying to figure out a way to stop Hawkmoth from akumatizing people, she was trying to figure out how to translate the grimoire pages and recreate the potions Fu gave her and Cat Noir, but figuring out the translations, the ingredients and the right ratios proved to be far more complicated that expected, resulting in explosion after explosion in her room after each failed mixture.
Fu didn’t give Marinette the information in his tablet because he was still in the process of teaching her how to understand the writing and because he never imagined the possibility of being left with no other choice but to pass on the box to Marinette before Hawkmoth could take advantage of all the miraculous.
Hawkmoth has not used any potions to his advantage because it is he and Nooro who need to take them, not his akumatized villains. Using the powerups would mean that he would need to expose himself out in the open to use the power to fight Ladybug and Cat Noir, and he alone can not risk being out in the open for to long because he prioritized working in the shadows and using others to preserve his own identity.
She couldn’t ask Su-Han for help either because Marinette very quickly realized that he would be actively judging her to determine if she was fit to be a guardian and this alone would leave to more complications as she realized he was to set in his old ways and would be difficult to persuade in understanding that being a guardian should not be strictly by the book and that she was still fit to be guardian even if she didn’t understand the grimoire yet.
Marinette and Adrien have a very limited supply of the potions master Fu gave to them before he lost his memory, and until Marinette can retranslate the grimoire pages and figure out just what in the world the ingredients really are and how to mix them properly, she and Cat Noir need to be very cautious about when they should use the macaroon and cheese powerups they have now, which is why we never see them use the powerups more often even in situations like in “Crocodule” when Ladybug had Cat Noir launch her and Purple Tigress into the air with his staff . If there’s another way to do something without the use of the powerups, then they will do so to save it for another day.
Beneath the stars and swirling within the abyss of the black astral sea; is a ball called Walpurgisnacht taking place every few years, though it once was an annual event. It is a special event. A rare one. Private.
Once called Walpurgis Night, or Saint Walpurga's Eve, marked the changing of the seasons, and so to, did it represent the night that magic was abundantly in motion. A night where witches arrived to their own form of a rendezvous, dancing merrily, and lighting the sky up with light.
But soon, that light turned into fire, and as the dullness of magic came- and the laws restricted it's use- and the destruction of the beauty of the wild for the rising fear of the pagan and the damned- Walpurgisnacht too began to mist away into an obscurity. But no. It survived. It turned into something new for the people of magic. The sorcerers, the witches, and the clawed...
HEY HEY HEY HEY
HEY IM HERE HI, IM BACK, AND WE’RE ROLLING IN WITH THE ALIX ARC BABY HAVE FUCKING FUN HAHAHAHAHH
(LISTEN to me, zag. LISTEN to me. this is a JOKE. this is a CRACK prediction of where season 4 is headed. this isn’t an ACTUAL prediction. you hear me? this isn’t... ACTUALLY what i think is going to happen. because it wont. ...right? right????)
I’m back! Anyway, I finally finished up the main team for the miraculous mew mew au I have been working on- Juleka and Rose are the final additions (mostly because the color schemes were the best fit). I decided to make Juleka a white tiger for contrast.
I could swear I had an ask in my inbox about drawing the miraculous girl gang as guardians of Kandrakar but I can't find it, maybe I just dreamed that up? Sorry theres no mylene dsfjh
I'm having second thoughts now about switching mylene with Rose, so that Mylene has the element of earth because of how much she cares about the earth but I drew Rose in her place instead because I just wanted her and Juleka to hold hands and that IS a valid reason.
Joe Ochman, the voice of André Bourgeois and Reba Buhr, the voice of Rose and Juleka, just announced that they will most likely be replaced in season 5...
The reason? They, among other English Voice Actors on the show, had asked for a pay raise for their work and they were refused.
Both also said that Miraculous is the lowest paying show they have ever worked on, despite it also being the most popular show they ever worked on.
It is speculated that there will be other actors who will also leave the show, since the two of them were not the only ones who asked for a raise and they were denied, but for the moment there haven't been other statements from other actors
Here you can see both statements from their Twitter and Instagram accounts
