“I think it was the best way for it to happen to me because I was filled with so much doubt as a kid. I never deemed this career truly possible in my mind, so being thrown into it really helped because it gave me a lot of confidence that this is something I am meant to do for the rest of my life.” - Dylan O'Brien (August 26, 1991)
Men know that these days anything less than fulsome praise is regarded
by women as ‘misogyny.’ We live in a time when women are told that if a
man doesn’t do his fair share of housework he is being abusive.
Manslation: Why oh whyyyyyyy do women think they are people and not robots made Just For Men™??? Treat you FAIRLY, you say??? Well I never! Misandry!
OK I gotta say something about the L*caya fandom because they’re still over in the Rucas tag talking about how Lucas is gonna eventually leave Riley for Maya. And I just really needed to get this off my chest because it’s been annoying me for a while. (and yes I’m going to be mean because I’m really annoyed rn)
And this is going to be a hella long rant so get freaking ready
May I point out that LM shippers are the same people who actually believed that Riley liked Lucas as a brother in Yearbook-Semi Formal (I don’t say Texas because Riley was blatantly lying in Texas about the brother thing in part 1-2 and if you didn’t catch that then you’re probably a lil slow)
Like if you truly believed that Riley ever liked Lucas as a brother, then why the hell would she KISS him and then be all dreamy about it while talking to Maya? Like, shouldn’t that be the time when she pulls back from Lucas’s lips and realizes that she only likes him platonically when talking to Maya about the kiss? Like even Maya was “disturbed” by her “kiss” with Farkle because she doesn’t like him like that. Like I’m sorry but LM shippers and Maya are so dumb (whoops) for actually believing that Riley likes Lucas as a brother. I can’t believe MJ tried to “pull” that story line in Semi Formal either.
Like Riley would’ve realized immediately after she kissed him that she doesn’t actually want to be kissing him and only likes him as a friend, it just doesn’t make sense to kiss someone and not realize that you’re totally grossed out by the romantic aspect of your relationship. You wouldn’t be smiling all day in a daze after kissing someone who you supposedly like as a brother, and then continually like that person through the next year…
Also just the fact that Maya was “being” Riley when she said Riley liked Lucas as a brother, even though Katy legit said in the same exact episode: “You can’t pretend to be someone your close to.” I was just appalled that the LM fandom missed this part because they seem to love digging in deep into the show with all their incorrect theories. Like, the rucas fandom has been the ONLY fandom to correctly predict Maya’s identity crisis, and the LM fandom Didn’t even believe it, even when the creator himself CONFIRMED THAT IT HAPPENED AND HAD SEVERAL EPISODES ON IT.
Like I think I was one of the only people who still understood that Riley didn’t actually like Lucas as a brother when Yearbook aired, but I can distinctly remember all the LM shippers rejoicing because Maya, the queen has spoken.
Like you people claim to be so intelligent with the owldetective by your side, yet none of the Lm shippers actually paid attention to the entire brother ark story…
And again, LM shippers are the same people who think Maya still likes Lucas, and that they actually work as a couple, and that Maya didn’t have an identity crisis.
PAY ATTENTION TO THE STORY!! LIKE L*CAYA WAS GIVEN MULTIPLE CHANCES TO HAPPEN: They dated, didn’t speak to each other, they had the campfire scene, Lucas didn’t kiss her, AND EVEN IN SKI LODGE MAYA LITERALLY FORCES HERSELF ON HIM AND HE REJECTED HER AND DID NOT AGREE WITH HER THAT SHE WAS HIS “CHOICE”.
HOW MANY TIMES DOES MICHAEL JACOBS HAVE TO SAY THAT YES MAYA DID HAVE AN IDENTITY CRISIS, YOUR CLOTHING THEORIES ARE WRONG, MAYA HAS NOT LIKED LUCAS SINCE DAY 1 (even tho everyone in the fandom knew that EXCEPT for the LM fandom), MAYA AND LUCAS WOULD NEVER WORK OUT AS A COUPLE BECAUSE THEY ARGUE TOO MUCH AND LUCAS DOESN’T LIKE BREAKING THE RULES, “IT’S BEEN RILEY SINCE DAY 1″, AND THAT THE TRIANGLE HAS NEVER BEEN A TRIANGLE ALL ALONG>the only way to make the triangle NOT a triangle is to have one of the girls NOT actually like Lucas…IT’S THAT SIMPLE
This is why rucas prevailed in Ski lodge and all LM shippers were shocked: LM shippers don’t pay attention to the story.
MJ LITERALLY laid it all out for Ski lodge, explaining why Maya and Lucas won’t happen, yet still LM shippers are coming into the rucas tag and bashing us on our canon ship.
ALSO LM shippers literally forgot Josh was even a character all throughout season 2 when MJ LITERALLY PLANNED FOR THE TRIANGLE TO END ONCE JOSH CAME: he tweeted the triangle would end in Legacy, which was the episode Josh was supposed to be in, but the actor was injured at time.
How did all of you miss that in Girl Meets First date, Maya asked Lucas out and literally TELLS Riley that she would never do that to her; LM would never happen as long as Riley likes Lucas (and if it did I would stop watching GMW because that is an awful lesson to teach children)
MJ Legit tweeted before Ski Lodge aired and the spoilers came out: “Those who know the story will be at a 1 on the surprise scale.”
And I distinctly remember all LM shippers being so confident that L*caya and R*arkle were gonna happen in Ski Lodge (and then the fake spoilers came out with LM and RF happening and lucas was wearing a cat sweatshirt)….. yet now they’re saying it was a bad thing for rucas to happen in Ski Lodge which literally makes no sense because Rucas don’t have ANY parallels with Cory and Lauren because Cauren didn’t even get together at the end of Ski lodge they just kissed and of course Lucas wasn’t going to say “I love you” to Riley in ski lodge; they’re freaking freshmen and you all would just say that Lucas only said that cuz Maya told him to if he did say ily to Riley
All the LM shippers literally ignored the entirety of the LM scene in ski lodge, save for the hug and the part where Maya sends Lucas off to go to Riley and where Lucas laughs at the whole ily thing, when they literally established in that same scene that Lucas likes Riley MORE than Maya, and did NOT choose Maya.
And I can’t speak for season 4 because who knows what’s gonna happen, but I only started shipping Rucas in late season 2 (during the whole triangle thing) because I was watching the show objectively and paying attention to arks, and not just jumping to every conclusion from the smallest details.
And for those LM shippers who still think Rucas will die at the end of
season 3, NEW FLASH Rucas are still together at the end and did NOT
break up (and Joshaya are still thriving btw). I am not saying that
rucas will be endgame, but they do date for at least a year and I’ll
guess we’ll see what happens in season 4. All of you LM shippers were so confident that your ship was going to happen so many times I’ve lost count. And you were wrong.each. time. And now you’re lashing out at rucas shippers who are actually RIGHT for a change.
Like I literally only started shipping Rucas because I knew it was going to happen. Because I paid attention to the story. (I actually shipped l*caya at one point because they DO have chemistry, but dropped it as soon as I realized that Riley and Lucas have more evidence of becoming canon-and they’re just better for each other)
Maybe if LM shippers paid attention to the story more, they would’ve realized that.
I am by no means saying that LMers should stop shipping l*caya, I’m saying that they should stop coming into the rucas tag, constantly bashing us and acting like we’re the stupid ones when actually, LM shippers are the ones that have been wrong this ENTIRE time.
