The early morning sun was already well risen by the time Riley and Lucas pulled into the parking lot of a Starbucks, leaving the ground smoldered in a disoriented haze. Even the birds stood silent as if it was too hot to move, the first heat wave of the summer showing no mercy to it’s New York inhabitants.

Much to Lucas’ dismay the AC in his car had finally bit the dust, leaving the two newly graduated seniors to sweat in the unforgiving heat. The plan was to spend the summer before their freshman year of college going on adventures together. First on their list was a road trip to Niagara Falls but now that the air conditioner was a no go, Lucas was starting to have his doubts.

“Maybe it’s a sign.” He frowns, feeling the hot air being released from the vents. Riley smiles at him, reaching her hand out to see for herself. She didn’t think it was possible but it seemed the air blowing into their faces was hotter than the actual outside air.

“Why don’t we just drive with the windows down? Once we pick up speed it shouldn’t be that bad.” She tried to remain as optimistic as possible. She had been looking forward to this road trip since Lucas mentioned it last summer and she hated the thought of having to call it off just because of a little hot air. Okay, a lot of hot air. But still, she wasn’t ready to give up just yet.

It is 1.30 am in the morning but I just cannot sleep and here I am thinking about Riley Matthews and what a ray of sunshine she is and also how amazing a friend she is. So, instead of closing my eyes and sleep, I keep thinking about how Riley is with her friends when they are sad. 

  • When Maya is sad, they sit together in the bay window and Riley just holds her in her arms until the tears stop streaming down her Peaches’ face. There are days when the pain of her father leaving just creeps up on her and consumes Maya. On those days when the tears don’t come because the sorrow is so numbing, she and Riley just sit there together. Sometimes, they will talk after about what is bothering Maya and other times when she doesn’t want to talk, Riley wraps her blanket around the both of them and turns on funny videos she finds online, stopping only when she finally hears her best friend laugh again. 

  • When Farkle is sad, Riley piles him with mathematic and scientific equations and questions that she gets from her Uncle Josh’s college friends in the Engineering faculty. She sits beside him throughout, heart aching for him when he first tightly grips the pencil, pressing hard against the paper as he struggles to focus. She knows that it is safe to talk to Farkle as soon the grip on the pencil relaxes, and he starts scribbling onto to the paper lightly but quickly. They talk about what is bothering him only after he has finished whatever question he had been working on. 

  • When Lucas is sad, she does not stop talking to him at all. Riley rambles on about her day or how embarrassing her father is or how she painted another purple cat in art class. She will slowly notice the tension in his shoulders ease and more often than not, she finds herself being extra dramatic with her stories. She knows how goofy she might look and she almost always starts to tone down when she thinks about how foolish she must seem. But then she hears the affectionate chuckle that Lucas lets out and she smiles at him, heart soaring when the previously forlorn look on his face is replaced by an affectionately soft one. They always talk about whatever is bothering him afterwards, her hands laced through his. 

  • When Smackle is sad, Riley sits with her. Most of the time, Smackle goes to Farkle but on the very rare days when Farkle is not there when she is sad, she is fine with just sitting with RIley. Smackle shuts down when she is upset but most of the time, Smackle frustratedly bangs anything she can get her hands on like the mug that she orders her hot chocolate in or the books she is supposed to be reading. Riley just wipes whatever liquid spills or tapes back the pages that are torn from the books. When Smackle seems to be calming down, Riley directs Smackle’s attention to topics she likes such as Farkle and the Noble Prize for Physics. They do not talk about whatever it is that has made Smackle sad but Smackle does scoot a little closer to RIley on the couch. 

  • When Zay is sad, Riley bakes him brownies. It is not the cookies that he craves so much from his grandmother, but it is pretty close. When she is done baking, she makes her way to the dance studio to watch her friend dance his sorrow away through ballet. She is always mesmerized by how graceful Zay is when he dances, and how every move can invoke such emotions within her. When he is done and it is clear that the weight from before has lifted slightly, he makes his way to her and they sit cross-legged in the dance studio, munching on the brownies as they enjoy each others’ company. By the time it is time for them to go home, Riley feels lighter when she sees the dimples on Zay’s cheeks emerge again. 

I’m sorry if this was long. I just really miss my Princess Riley Matthews 😭

(Part 2: How her friends are with Riley when she is sad)  

Another lucaya au bc why not

Maya sits in the art room during one of her free periods, which she has a few of during her junior year. She holds her sketchbook as it rests on her bent knees, her charcoal pencil gliding and creating black strokes along the paper.

This is where she goes whenever she can. She likes the silence, but it’s bittersweet. The art room is silent because of a lack of enthusiasm towards the arts in her school, thus the lack of art classes.

She sits in her quiet serenity, before Riley bursts through the door, slightly out of breath.

“Maya, you have to come. It’s happening again.” She says worriedly, Maya setting down her sketchbook and hopping down from her spot on the sink counter.

“What is this, the second time this month? He needs to take a chill pill.” Maya groans, walking quickly with Riley out of the classroom and down the hall.

She follows Riley out the doors of the school, and as the doors open, a burst of sound is present.

There’s a small crowd huddled on one of the outdoor basketball courts, yelling and laughing at some spectacle at the center of the huddle.

Maya pushes through the crowd and sees Lucas, in a brawl with some random guy, who is definitely losing.

Lucas dodges a punch from the guy, before socking him across the face.

The crowd spews a collective “oooh” as Lucas’s opponent clutches his now bleeding nose, red liquid oozing from between his fingers.

Just as he takes off his bloodied hand to send a swing at Lucas, Maya jumps in between them and grabs the guy’s arm, stopping the punch.

“Maya, move. You could have just gotten hit.” Lucas fumes, anger still burning behind his eyes at the helpless opponent.

“Yeah, well I didn’t. You however, have gotten hit, so you should stop before you fuck things up more than you already have.” Maya says, letting go of the guy’s arm.

“Walk away, Lucas. Walk away.” Maya says, more quietly.

Lucas’ eyes soften as they meet Maya’s for the first time, before he turns and angrily walks away and around the school, shaking out his fist.

“Show’s over, folks.” Maya says loudly, the crowd collectively booing and sighing, walking away to different spots on the campus.

Maya finds Riley and sighs, Riley putting her arm around her.

“Nobody can calm him down like you can. Its quite the feat.” Riley chuckles.

“It’s really not a challenge. Just get him to look into your eyes, and he suddenly looks like a kicked puppy.” I reply, Riley scoffing and rolling her eyes.

“You seriously don’t get it, do you?”

“Get what?” I respond, Riley practically snorting.

“He loves you. He has since seventh grade. You think that looking into just anyone’s eyes would calm him down?” Riley laughs, Maya’s cheeks growing hot.

“Well, any of his friends’. That’s what I am, Riles. His friend. That’s what I always have been. Remember? He’s not going out with me, he’s never going out with me.” Maya rambles, Riley’s face staying in a nonchalant smirk the entire time.

“Go talk to him.” Riley says simply, and Maya scoffs.

“I don’t know where he is.”

“Oh, as if you don’t know where he is Maya.”

Maya sighs and rolls her eyes, walking away from Riley and going around the school to where he must be.

She trudges her way down to the school’s baseball field, only to see Lucas repeatedly tossing up hitting a worn baseball against the metal fence.

“This your way of letting out anger, huckleberry?” Maya says from the other side of the fence, Lucas looking up abruptly and gripping the bat tightly.

“You shouldn’t be here, Maya.” He says quietly, tossing up and hitting the ball once more.

“Lucas Friar, I’m staying here until you tell me what was going on up there.” Maya says, walking around the fence and standing behind him.

“Don’t stand so close. I could hit you.” He says in a monotone voice, Maya snatching the bat from his hands.

“Maya.” Lucas says flatly, turning around and facing her.

“Why did you beat him up?”

“He was being a jackass.”

“If being a jackass was good a reason to beat someone up, I would be beating you up right now.”

“He was saying things. Shitty things.” Lucas says, the anger present again.

“But Lucas, you still can’t-”

“About you. He was calling you a slut, after that guy you slept with, James, or whatever- told him.” Lucas fumes, Maya opening her mouth to speak, but being cut off repeatedly by Lucas.

“Lucas, I can deal with my own shit. None of it is your business.” Maya retorts, Lucas breathing angrily and looking to his feet.

“Well maybe if you didn’t screw around with such idiots I wouldn’t have to deal with your shit.”

“You don’t have to deal with my shit, Lucas! This is me telling you, that I can fight my own battles. It’s none of your business who I fuck around with, especially since you’ve never been one of them.” Maya practically yells.

“It is my business, because I care about you Maya. You deserve better than one night stands with assholes who won’t remember your name the next day. You deserve a guy who will treat you right, and stay with you, and fight for you.” Lucas says, the fire behind his eyes burning out as he looks into Maya’s eyes and steps closer to her.

“I deserve better? Really? I wanted you, Lucas, last year. I did, and you went for Riley. You had your chance, and now I can do whatever the fuck I please. I can do whoever the fuck I please, and you don’t have to act like my bodyguard. I don’t need it, I just-” Maya yells, but Lucas stops her by placing a hand on either side of her face and kissing her.

The kiss is deep and passionate, air audibly going into Lucas’s nose as his fingers slide into Maya’s blonde hair.

He pushes her up against the metal fence and kisses her repeatedly, their mouths moving in perfect synchronization.

Maya tugs on his short dirty blonde hair as they kiss, one of Lucas’s hands moving to her waist.

The fire behind Lucas’s eyes seems to have transferred to his lips, to his hands and his body when he pushes Maya against the fence. Everything about him is burning, passionate, and he kisses like Maya is all he needs. Like he just wants her in his arms forever, for eternity, creating an everlasting flame between the two of them.

They break apart slowly, their faces still inches apart.

“And by the way, by someone who will fight for you, I meant me.” Lucas smirks, before kissing Maya again with that flaming passion of his.

Only You | 8

Overview: It’s junior year and Riley’s best friend develops a crush on her first love, Lucas. Not wanting to stand in between them she lies and says she’s okay with them being together.

It takes her a minute to process what just happened. To move at all. Her face feels frozen as she stares at the space he was just occupying. Slowly she tears her gaze away and looks at the mess he left scattered across her bed. She didn’t just imagine that whole thing. He really showed up and asked her to leave with him. He really kissed her.  

Riley swallows the lump in her throat as she begins to pick up his mess, a million different questions running through her mind. What was he hiding from her? Why the sudden desire to abruptly leave everything you know behind? What about trying to start over? What about… what about Lucas.

Her heart feels heavy as she thinks about what this will do to him. He’s lost his brother so many times and even though he’d never admit it, she knows that Jackson sticking around means the world to Lucas. It always has.

And what about her? Was she actually considering joining him? Is that what she really wants? Is he what she really wants?

She can feel her stomach turn in knots as she walks back over to her window but instead of closing it she climbs through.

She’s a Fighter (1)

prompt: amelia and owen have a 5 year old daughter, riley, and they’re all going on a road trip. riley gets sick and owen and amelia realize she’s not just car sick.

i hope you like this @ the anon who requested it and i hope it’s somewhat along the lines of what you were asking for. there will be more parts to come.

“Is everyone ready to go?” Owen asked while starting the car. “Yup,” Amelia replied as she took a sip of water. “How about you, Ri?” Owen questioned when he didn’t hear a second response. Amelia turned around to face their five year old daughter in the backseat, making sure she was even in the car. “I’m ready,” Riley answered a bit more calm than usual. “Then let’s go,” Owen said as he began to reverse out of the driveway. 

“Do you want your snack, Ri?” Amelia asked, “You haven’t eaten since this morning.” Riley shook her head in response. “I’m not hungry. Can I watch a movie?” Amelia sighed and looked at Owen, who shrugged. “Okay. What movie do you want to watch? I brought Finding Nemo, The Secret Life of Pets, Trolls, Froz-,” Amelia said as she flipped through the case of DVD’s, only to be cut off mid sentence. “Trolls!” Amelia laughed and shook her head. “How’d I know you were going to pick that one?” 

Two hours into the drive, Riley was asleep, Amelia was reading a book and Owen was focused on the road. “When do you think we should we stop for gas?” Amelia asked while setting her book down. “The next gas station is in about twelve miles. We’ll stop there and take a bathroom break too,” Owen replied. Amelia nodded then turned around to check on Riley who was still sleeping. She squinted her eyes to get a closer look at what seemed to be sweat on Riley’s forehead. She turned back around and turned the air conditioning on. “Are you hot?” Owen asked, noticing what she was doing. “No, I’m freezing. Riley’s sweaty though,” she said. Her motherly instincts kicked in, so she turned back around, facing Riley once again, and took the blanket off of her. This slight commotion woke Riley up. 

“Hey, sleepy head. I didn’t mean to wake you. Just wanted to take your blanket off. You’re sweating,” Amelia said, squeezing Riley’s foot gently then turning back around to face the front. “Mommy,” Riley said quietly. Quietly enough to where Amelia didn’t hear her. “Mommy,” Riley said again, this time a little louder. Amelia looked over her shoulder at her daughter. “Yes, my dear?” Amelia smiled, but quickly replaced it with a frown once she saw the look on Riley’s face. “What’s wrong?” Amelia asked, turning towards her more. Owen’s eyes glanced up at the rear view mirror, looking at Riley. “My tummy hurts,” she said as her eyes began to fill up with tears. Almost immediately after that was said, and before Amelia could even get a word out, the five year old began to throw up. Everywhere. “Oh, Ri. Owen, pull over,” Amelia said as turned to her husband. “You okay, ladybug?” Owen asked Riley as he pulled over on the side of the road. His question was responded with the sounds of sobs. 

As soon as the car stopped moving, Amelia hopped out of the passenger seat and made her way to the other side of the car. She opened the backseat door and saw her poor daughter, covered in vomit, crying hysterically. “Oh sweetie,” she said. “Let’s get you cleaned up, shall we?” Amelia said, giving Riley a small smile. “Owen can you grab the box of tissues from underneath my seat, please?” Amelia asked as she went to the trunk to grab Riley’s Trolls themed suitcase. When she returned, Owen handed her the tissues and handed Riley her bottle of water. “Alright, stand up for me, love,” Amelia said as she helped Riley out of her seat. Amelia began to wipe off as much of the mess from Riley’s clothes as she could, while cringing from the smell. “Okay, good enough. Arms up,” she said, taking Riley’s shirt off and replacing it with a clean one from the suitcase. She helped Riley step out of her pink polka dot leggings and into a pair of pajama shorts, also from the suitcase. 

When Amelia was done cleaning up the mess, she wiped Riley’s tears off her face. “Do you feel better, ladybug?” she asked. Riley shook her head ‘no’, and sniffled. “It hurts, mommy,” she sobbed. “What does?” Amelia asked, instantly going into doctor mode. Riley moved her hand to the lower right side of her abdomen. Amelia turned to Owen, and they exchanged worried glances. “I thought she was just car sick,” Owen said, quietly. Between the loss of appetite, the vomiting, and the pain in her lower right abdomen, they both knew she wasn’t just car sick.

“Alright, Ri, we’re going to make a little pitstop, okay?” Amelia said, placing a stranded piece of Riley’s hair behind her ear. “Where?” Riley asked, clutching onto her side in pain. Amelia looked at Owen. “Well, mommy and I are going to take you to the hospital, just to make sure you’re okay,” Owen said softly. “No!” Riley yelled. “Riley it’s okay. It’s okay, it’ll be quick,” Amelia said, trying to calm her down. Riley continued to sob hysterically and struggled to catch her breath. “Ri, calm down, love. You’re going to make yourself sick again. Daddy and I will be with you the whole time. Don’t you want to stop feeling yucky?” Amelia asked. “But I don’t want to get a shot,” Riley cried. “We’ll make sure you really have to before they give you one. I promise.” Amelia sat Riley back down on her seat and closed the door. “Do you know where the nearest hospital is?” she asked Owen. “I think maybe twenty miles away. It’s in the next town over,” he replied, getting in the driver’s seat. Amelia got in the backseat and laid Riley’s head on her lap. She played with her hair, trying to help her relax, and ended up putting it in a French braid incase she got sick again. 

Amelia handed Riley a bottle of water, only to have it be pushed away. “It will get the yucky taste out of your mouth, ladybug,” Amelia said. “I don’t want it,” Riley whispered. She curled up into a tiny ball, clutching onto her stomach, and whimpered. “Mommy,” Riley said. “Yes?” she asked as she stopped rubbing circles on Riley’s back. “I think I’m gonna get sick again,” Riley said. Amelia quickly helped her sit up and grabbed the grocery store bag used for trash, holding it under Riley’s chin. 

She started to silently pray as her daughter vomited into the bag. Amelia was never a religious person, not after everything that had happen to her in the past. But in that moment she prayed for her daughter’s appendix not to burst. 

Riley spat once more into the bag then backed away. “You done, ladybug?” Amelia asked, putting her palm against Riley’s forehead. “I think so,” Riley said. “We’re almost there,” Owen updated from the front. Riley’s eyes widened and she began to whimper again. Amelia put her arm around her and grabbed her small hand. “You’ll be just fine,” Amelia whispered. Riley laid her head against Amelia’s shoulder. “It hurts so bad, mommy.” she weeped. “I know, baby. I know it does.”

Minutes later, they arrived at the hospital. It was a hospital neither Owen or Amelia have heard of, and that gave them some worry. “Alright, let’s go, ladybug,” Amelia said. She got out of the car first, then Owen came around and picked Riley up, carrying her inside. 

The hospital was small. That was the first thing they noticed. It was very small. They could only see four, maybe five, doctors walking around and only a couple of patients. The second thing they noticed was the mess. Unused hospital beds were not made, there were papers on the floor, and it was just very cluttered. Owen looked at Amelia with concern, but realized this was their only option. All other hospitals were too far, and they didn’t know how much more time Riley had before the worst happens. 

They continued walking through the hospital, waiting to see a doctor who wasn’t busy. Once Amelia finally got someone’s attention, they were lead to an exam room. “Hi, I’m Dr. Ross,” a tall man said as he shook Amelia’s hand, then Owen’s. “I’m Dr. Shepherd, that’s Dr. Hunt. This is Riley. She vomited twice, has a fever, has a loss of appetite and is complaining of severe pain in her lower right abdomen. We know what it is, but can you please just check to see how bad it is?” “Of course, Dr. Shepherd. I’ll do an abdominal ultrasound,” Dr. Ross said. Amelia nodded. Riley crawled over from Owen’s lap to Amelia’s and looked up at her. “Will I have to get a shot?” she asked. “They’ll most likely have to put an I.V. in you, ladybug. You know what that is,” Amelia answered. 

Amelia laid Riley down on the exam table, lifting her shirt up and pulling the waistline of her shorts down to allow Dr. Ross to do the ultrasound. “Is it gonna hurt?” Riley asked the doctor. “No, no. It shouldn’t. It will be a little cold though, is that okay?” Riley nodded, and squeezed her eyes shut. Amelia watched over Riley as she laid down on the table, and noticed her face turn pallor, but didn’t notice the doctor’s eyes widen. “Riley?” she said. She saw Riley’s face grow more and more pale. “Let’s sit her up,” she told the doctor. Amelia looked around the cramped room, but couldn’t find an emesis basin and the doctor had no clue what was happening. Until Riley began to throw up on her lap. Amelia put her hand on Riley’s back and Dr. Ross grabbed an emesis basin from a cabinet, handing it to Riley. Amelia used her other hand to hold it for her.

When Riley stopped, she was out of breath. “I’ll clean this up, then I’d like to talk to mom and dad, okay?” Dr. Ross asked. “Did you see the appendix already? How badly is it inflamed?” Owen asked. “It’s not the appendix, Dr. Hunt,” he replied. Amelia looked at Owen, confused, wondering how it could not be the appendix. 

Dr. Ross left the room to throw the sheet of paper from the exam table away, then returned a few minutes later. “Can I speak to you two outside?” he asked. Amelia and Owen nodded, turning to Riley. “We’ll be right back, ladybug,” Amelia said.

“What did you see?” Owen asked. “There are many obstructions in her small bowel that we’re going to have to clear out, Dr. Hunt,” he said, “I can’t tell from the ultrasound how severe it is, which is why I’ll have to open her up and see. It’s mandatory that we do this as soon as possible, though.” 

“I understand,” Owen said. “Do what you have to do.”

The three walked back into the exam room, seeing the small pale figure of Riley on the exam table. “Alright, ladybug. You’re going to go on an adventure with Dr. Ross,” Amelia said. “Dr. Ross is going to take you all the way to the other side of the hospital for a while, and then he’s gonna make you better. Once you come back to us, you’ll feel like your normal self again. Doesn’t that sound fun? The only thing you have to do is get the I.V.” Amelia had tears in her eyes but tried her best to hide them. “I don’t want to,” Riley argued. Dr. Ross looked at Owen, and mouthed the words ‘I have to take her now.’

“Come on, Ri. Let’s get the I.V. in you then you can go get better,” Owen said. Riley flailed her arms and legs around. “No!” she screamed.

Amelia stood back and watched Owen and Dr. Ross hold her down on the table, trying to keep her still. She covered her mouth with her hand and let the tears fall from her eyes. She watched as Dr. Ross put the needle into Riley’s arm and started the I.V., while Riley screamed and thrashed about. 

“You did it, you’re done,” Dr. Ross said. “Mommy, I said I didn’t want a shot,” Riley sobbed. “I’m so sorry baby,” Amelia said between her own tears.

“I have to take her up now,” Dr. Ross instructed and Owen nodded. “We’ll see you when you’re better, Ri,” Owen said. 

“Don’t let him take me, mommy, please,” Riley screamed through tears as Dr. Ross wheeled her away. “I love you ladybug, I’m sorry,” Amelia said.

When the screams faded, Owen put his arm around Amelia and kissed the top of her head. “She’ll be okay,” he said. “I know she will. She’s a fighter,” Amelia said, wiping her tears away.

The Game: Part 7

Rucas au multi-fic. Lucas and Riley have been best friends for as long as they can remember. They finally tell each other how they feel, and are able to get together, but some friction occurs when Riley’s Uncle Shawn introduces everyone to his new wife and daughter.

Part One Part Two Part Three Part Four Part Five Part Six

Riley receives a text from Maya that says “go somewhere quiet, you’re gonna want to hear this”. At first Riley rolls her eyes, but her curiosity was too much. She waited until before seventh period to go listen. She knew it would be okay to be late to her dad’s class. She goes into the bathroom, puts her headphones in, and listens to what Maya sent her.

At first, everything is okay. Lucas sounds like the perfect gentleman he always was. Then she got to the middle of the conversation, and she could feel her face getting hot from anger, and a few tears started to go down her face. She made it through all the way to the end. She didn’t know how to feel. She pulled herself together in the mirror. She wiped her tears, but she felt an unbelievable amount of rage. She didn’t know who to be more upset with. Lucas, for talking about her like that with his friend and truly revealing what he thinks of her, or Maya for sending her such a harsh truth. She walked into class after the bell, and stopped short when she came in. She felt sick seeing Lucas smile at her.

“Riley, how nice of you to join us. Any particular reason you were late?”

“I was in the bathroom.”

“Alright, please sit down, I don’t have a lot of time, and I want to go over the syllabus.”

She just stood there, feeling glued to the floor. She wanted to have a complete and total melt down. She looked at Maya, who was looking at her in amusement.

“Riley, please-”

“Do you think this is funny?” She slowly walks over to Maya’s desk. “Is my life just some game to you.”

“What are you talking about?”

“Why would you send me that?”

“Because I thought you should know what your perfect boyfriend really thinks of you.”

Lucas goes wide eyed, stands up and walks over to the girls.

“Maya, what did you do?”

“She recorded your vulgar conversation with Mike, and sent it to me.”

“What? Why would you do that?”

“Because I heard the way you two were talking before, so I thought I’d capture it for evidence. You’re an asshole, and now she knows.”

“Riley, I-”

“You need to walk away from me before I say or do something I regret.”


“I’m not messing around! Get away from me Lucas.”

She was was breathing heavily, she was red in the face, and she had angry tears welling up.

“Dad, I’m sorry but I need to leave.” She rushes out the door, leaving everyone stunned.

Riley Matthews has never lost cool like that, especially not in front of her peers. Cory glared at Lucas, who wanted to chase after his girlfriend, but knew she needed some space. Everyone sat silent, waiting to see what Cory would do.

“Mr. Friar, please take your seat. I want everyone to pay attention, I don’t have a lot of time and I want to go over the syllabus.”

Cory desperately wanted to go find and comfort his daughter, but he had a class to teach. He always had some job to do.

Riley went to the nearest subway station, and got on. She got off a few blocks away from her house. She needed some air. She couldn’t believe what just happened. Riley knew that guys talked like that. It’s not even what they said that made her so angry. It was Maya. For someone to send such a harsh truth to her like that…it was awful. Riley wasn’t sure what her next move was going to be, but she knew it needed to be smart.


It was around one in the afternoon when Riley finished walking around town. She decided to go through her window into her room, she didn’t want Auggie to know she was home. When she climbed up she noticed her window was already open, and Lucas was sitting inside waiting for her. She sighed and plopped down next to him. He looked like he had been crying.

“You need stop just sitting here when you’re not sure I’m gonna be home.”

“Riley, I’m so sorry about everything I-”

“Stop. I don’t want you to explain a single thing to me. I know how guys like to talk to each other. It’s fine. I’ve calmed down. You never thought I’d hear that conversation. Honestly, it wasn’t even that bad. You just wanted to be friends that fucked, and then you realized you really did want a girlfriend, every teenage boy goes through that, right?”

“It’s not fine. I have never been this happy, and the fact that I jeopardized that is awful. Even if she hadn’t recorded it, Maya still heard me say everything.”

“She said there was a prior conversation, what was that about?”

“Mike was talking about how fine you are. I told him to stop.”

“So you were just humoring him?”

“I don’t really know what I was doing, or saying.”

“You were saying the truth.”

“Riley, I meant it when I said I loved you.”

“I know.”

“You’re not just some object to me either.”


“Are we going to be okay?”

“I’m not sure. You’re suddenly not who I thought you were. I thought you were the nicest, sweetest guy I had ever met, but you’re just like the rest of them. You’re only after one thing. That’s what pushed you to want to be in a relationship with me. And sure, I think you’re incredibly attractive, and when I’m ready you better believe I will let you do whatever you want to me. But there’s more for me than just that. We have, or at least I thought we had a really deep connection, and that’s the turn on for me. We can talk about anything with each other.”

“I hated seeing you so upset earlier. The fact that something I said made you feel like that made me feel sick. I never want to make you feel that way again.”

“What are you gonna do? Keep your mouth shut at all times.”

“Riley, the way I was talking, that was how I used to feel-”

“So you used to be a pig? You’re not anymore? You don’t think about taking me and just getting me naked and onto a bed?”

“Well, of course I think about that, but that’s not all I want from you. I want all of it, mind and body. My favorite thing is when you talk to me Riley. You’re my everything.” Tears start to slide down Lucas’ cheeks. This isn’t the first time she’s seen him cry, but it’s still a rare occurrence. “Sorry, I don’t mean to get so emotional. It’s just…the fact that I’m gonna lose you is killing me.”

“You’re not gonna lose me.” She grabs a tissue from a box near her, and hands it to him. “You could never lose me. We’re just having a little trouble in paradise.”

“So…we’re not gonna break up?”

“No it’s not that serious, but I might freeze you out until I’m a little less hurt. I’m honestly more upset with Maya. Who sends someone a harsh truth like that? I think she wants us to break up so she can pounce on you.”

“I have a class with her fourth period, I told her she wasn’t my type to her face.”

“She might like the challenge, but so do I. I’ve got some cards to play.”

“You do?”

“Sure. She doesn’t think I can be a bitch or mean, well she’s mistaken. I know exactly what I’m going to do.”

“Riley.I feel like a lot of this is turning into something it doesn’t need to. I think you should reconsider whatever it is you’re thinking of doing, and just talk to her.”

“I’m sick of talking. I’m done talking. I’m taking action, Lucas. Maybe you should do the same.”

“What is that supposed to mean?”

“It means, maybe you should be a little more self aware, be aware of your surroundings. What if one of my other friends was in that class and heard all of the things you said. I’m sure something would have gotten back to me. Save the macho, bro attitude for the locker room.”

Riley could feel her blood start to boil again, she stood up and walked away from him.

“Do you think we did too much too soon?” She asks. “I don’t know what hurts more, knowing that you love me and that you were still able to talk about me like that, or the fact that you might have just been telling me what I wanted to hear.”

“Riley, you and Maya might be playing some game”, he gets up and goes over to her, “but I’m not. What I feel for you is real, and I meant what I said. I would never do anything to intentionally hurt you, you should know that.”

“Why did you never date anyone else?”

“How did we get to this topic?”

“I want to know. Lots of girls like you, but you never acted on anything, or as far as I know. Am I really your first girlfriend?”

“You know you’re not. You know I dated Missy Bradford in the eighth grade.”

“Yeah for like a month.”

“Because I saw what it was doing to you. I’ll never forget the look on your face when you saw us kiss. I broke it off with her practically right then and there. There’s always been something between us. Lots of guys like you, you never dated anyone else, besides Charlie.”

“Yeah, also in the eighth grade, and it drove you up the wall. You were never nice to him.”

“He was creep who was trying to steal you away from me!” He takes a deep breath to calm down. “Look, RIley, we need to put the past behind or we’re gonna go crazy.”

“We tried doing that remember? I thought everything was all good until I heard this nonsense. I need to ask you a very serious question.”

“What is it?”

“Have you ever had sex with someone?”


“Tell me the truth.”

“Don’t you think if I had done something that serious, I would have been in a relationship with someone?”

“I don’t know. You clearly would have been fine with just being friends with benefits with me. Guess I’m not that special.”

“I didn’t know how I felt about you yet. I knew I was really attracted to you, but I didn’t want our friendship to be over. God, I don’t even know why I said that to Mike. I would never actually treat you with such little respect. I think sex is a serious thing that two people should do when they’re both ready. I’m in no rush. I’m fine with pecks on the cheek and holding hands because they’re coming from you.”

Tears start pouring down each other’s faces. He pulls her in and hold her tight while she buries her face in his chest.

“I’m gonna kill her for doing this to us.”

“Just make sure you have a solid plan together. Whatever you need me to do, I’m in.”

“Wait”, she looks up at him, “I thought you wanted me to reconsider my revenge.”

“She’s made you very upset, and that makes me upset. You don’t deserve to feel this way.”

“I love you.”

“I love you too.”

The two start kissing, and that becomes a passionate embrace. A make-up make-out session was exactly what they needed. They tugged and pulled at each other, and just made it over to the bed when there was a knock on Riley’s door. She grunted and rolled her eyes.

She opens the door and sees Auggie standing there.


“Oh thank god it’s you.”

“Who else did you think it was?”

“I don’t know. I didn’t think you were going to be home, and usually you come in from the front. I got nervous.”


“Okay”, Auggie peeps his head in and sees Lucas on Riley’s bed. “Carry on, but just remember, the walls are thin.”

Riley rolls her eyes, closes the door, makes sure it’s locked, and gets back onto her bed with Lucas. She looks at him and smiles.

“You have a plan don’t you?” He asks.

“Yup. Just thought of it.”

“Well, what is it?”

“Nothing. We’re going to do nothing.”


“You’ll see. Come here, I’m in the mood for a good snuggle.”

She lays down and opens her arms up to him. He lays on her chest, and she holds him tight while running her hands through his hair.

The next day in homeroom, everyone was waiting to see what was going to happen. Everyone thought Cory might have killed Lucas, and that they’d hear about some big trial. Maya walked in and sat down. Everyone stared at the girl who caused so much trouble.

Lucas and Riley walked in hand in hand, all smiles and talking like they usually did. They went right to their seats and sat down. Everyone including Maya, was speechless, and they all started at the two who were acting like nothing happened. Maya stood up and got in front of them.

“May we help you? We’re trying to have a private conversation.” Riley says.

“You’re not mad at him?”

“Why would I be mad? Oh, are you talking about that little thing that happened yesterday?”

“Little thing? You had a complete meltdown in front of the whole class.”

“I’ll admit that was embarrassing, and since most of everyone who is in our homeroom is in that class, they can see now that everything is fine.”

“But how?”

“Oh we just did what any other couple would do. We talked about it.” Lucas says.

“And it was a good talk too. So, you can sit down now.”

Maya turns, and sits back in her seat, completely confused.

“Oh, and Maya. Next time you try to help, don’t.” Riley says sharply.

The bell rings, Cory walks in, happy to see everyone before they go off to their first period classes.

When Maya has class with Lucas later that day, she uses it as an opportunity to investigate. She taps him on the shoulder.


“I’m not talking to you.”

“Why not?”

“Because you almost ruined my relationship.”

“Technically that’s not my fault. Anyone could have heard you two talking and told Riley.”

“Whatever, just leave me alone.”

“So it did cause a lot more trouble than little miss sunshine was letting on. You know, as mad as she was, I don’t think she would have broken up with you. She just got everything she’s ever wanted, she’d be stupid to give it up.”

“Riley does what makes her happy, if she wasn’t happy with me, she would have ended it.” He turns around to face her. “Look, I don’t know what game you’re trying to play, or if this is just how you are as a person, but it needs to stop. We don’t have to like you or be your friends. And by the way, trying to break two people up won’t make them like you, certainly not enough to go out with you.”

“Is that what you think this is about? You think I have some plot that ends with you and I going out? Please. You’d be a fun hook up at best, I’m not trying to be your girlfriend.”

“So then this really is about messing with Riley.”

“She was rude to me when we first met. I’m just trying to meet her expectations.”

“What expectations?”

“She has some preconceived notions about me that I don’t appreciate. She thinks I’m a certain way, well I’m gonna act that way. Anytime I’ve actually tried to be nice, she’s brushed me off.”

“Gee, I wonder why.”

“Alright class, time to start.” The teacher starts.

Lucas turns back around, and Maya glares at him. What was so great about him anyway? What could sweet little Riley Matthews see in some jock. She had to get more information about their history, but who could she ask?

Okay, so I know we all like to joke around about and shit on Riley…well more so on the fact that the writers just threw this character in that we’re supposed to suddenly care about, and is an obvious Bryan stand in…but…putting all this aside, my meta brain started doing some research cause, y’know that’s what I do…

Riley is a word that can be used as both a name and an adjective. 

First things first going to look at it as a name since it’s how it’s used within the show.

Riley is an alternative spelling to Reilly which is an anglicized version of the Irish Raghallaigh. The meaning of the name Riley (or Reilly/Raghallaigh) is “Valiant”

Valiant - Possessing or showing courage or determination

Of course this isn’t something we, the audience, has seen from him, though I’d say that it probably possesses a bit of courage and determination to keep on pressing on when you’ve been taken as a slave, and most likely beaten/tortured at some point, but still…

We could also agree that he was determined to take out Roan in The Tinder Box, but I wouldn’t call that determination a valiant one. Going off of The Tinder Box episode, though, we do have that moment where Bellamy tells him “Your life was saved for a reason, and this isn’t it.” Now, we could just look at that as a one time thing used to calm Riley down in this situation, but come on guys, this is The 100, we should know better by now. Because of this in connection to the meaning of Riley’s name, I do think that Riley is going to serve a bit more of a purpose in 4B, and we might finally get the answers of ‘Who the fuck is Riley?’ and ‘Why the fuck is he even here?’ This is something I wouldn’t mind seeing, only so long as it doesn’t take anything away from the regular cast/characters (ie. him deciding to sacrifice himself to save everyone instead of someone like Jasper) 

As an English Surname the name Riley means “Rye Clearing”

Rye is a plant (grass) that’s grains are often used for animal feed or making things such as cereal or whiskey. —so this would be a connection to Riley being from Farm Station (which slightly makes me wonder if Clarke had Bryan on the list, cause obviously she didn’t have Monty or Riley on it, and these three are the last people we know of from Farm Station…)

Hmm maybe Riley being from Farm Station will have something to do with the whole “life was saved for a reason, and this isn’t it” thing.

Now that I have the meaning of Riley as a name out of the way, I’m going to focus on the meaning of it an adjective.

One meaning of ‘riley’ is Turbid

Turbid - 

a. Deficient in clarity or purity

b. characterized by or producing an obscurity of mind or emotions

Synonyms: cloudy, polluted, confused

another meaning of ‘riley’ is Vexed

Vexed - 

a. difficult and debated. problematic

b. annoyed, frustrated, or worried

Synonyms: afflicted, distressed, tormented, exasperated

When we look at these two definitions and their synonyms we can easily link them to Riley in The Tinder Box. His past and feelings/emotions towards Ice Nation are obscuring or clouding his ability to think logically. He isn’t thinking about the possible outcome of a war starting or even of himself winding up dead from one of Echo’s arrows in this situation. All he sees when he sees someone from Ice Nation is his tormentors. So, he becomes the problematic factor that Bellamy has to talk down. 

I could very well be wrong, but is it possible that ‘Riley’ in its meaning as an adjective is supposed to be who Riley was, and that the meaning of Riley as a name is who he is supposed to become in 4B?

Now, whether or not the audience will actually care is an entirely different question altogether…

Riarkle one shot

Hi! Thought I’d write another Riarkle one shot because I’m sad and writing makes me happy! 
Rating: G
Prompt: The group is camping and a thunderstorm happens. Riley is terrified and her boyfriend calms her down. 

“Peaches, did you hear that thunder?” Riley yelled to her friend across the room.

“Yes, of course I did, honey. I’m in the same place as you.” Maya laughed at her frightened friend.

The group had decided to go stay at Farkle’s cabin in the woods, where a thunderstorm was currently keeping them inside. Lucas, Zay, and Farkle were currently in an intense game of Twister and Maya was the spinner. Smackle was in the kitchen attempting to make cookies.

“I think we’re all gonna die. I’m taking off all the metal I’m wearing.” Riley paced the room nervously.

“Riley, it is just a thunderstorm. You will be okay.” Smackle reassured her.

“But there’s a chance I could die!” Riley screamed, just as a bright flash of lightning took place. The thunder boomed after it and Riley jumped onto the couch. She curled herself into a ball. Lucas and Zay laughed at Riley’s fright while Farkle was obviously concerned for his girlfriend. He quickly removed himself from the game of Twister, which caused Zay and Lucas to tumble on top of each other.

“Dude, what the heck?” Lucas whined as he untangled himself from Zay.

“Let the man be with his woman, Lucas.” Zay elbowed his oblivious friend, gesturing to where Farkle and Riley were.

Farkle took Riley by the hand and led her to the basement.

“It’s probably safer down here. Plus you can’t see or hear the thunder as well.” Farkle said as he sat down on the couch. Riley plopped herself down on his lap, wrapping her arms around him. Farkle traced his fingers gently on her back.

“I don’t know why thunderstorms scare me so much. I feel so dumb.” Riley whimpered, as she started playing with the collar of Farkle’s shirt.

“Well, if it helps you feel any better, I don’t think you’re dumb. I like calming you down.” Farkle said, placing a kiss on her cheek.

He turned on the tv to Nickelodeon. Riley removed herself from his lap to get a better view of the screen. She sat next to him, his arm around her, her head on his shoulder, and her legs curled on top of his. His fingers twirled in her hair as they watched Spongebob.

As the show ended, they realized the rain had stopped. They were just getting up to head back upstairs when they heard the door open.

“Are you guys done making out down here?” Maya shouted at them. The two chuckled as they walked upstairs hand in hand. “Oh gross, PDA.”

“Thanks for calming me down, Farkley.” Riley chirped, kissing her boyfriend on his lips lightly.

“Anything for you, my love.” Farkle smiled.

anonymous asked:

Do you have any head canons about Rucas and touching?

this got lost in my inbox but um yes i absolutely have headcanons about rucas touching

  • for one, they’re always doing it - not it but like, always touching w/o even realizing it
  • lucas is usually the one who initiates it + when they first start dating it starts off with him holding her hand while he walks her to class and when they walk to and from the subway but after awhile it becomes second nature to him and he just holds her hand whenever/wherever
  • hand holding slowly morphs into arms draped over shoulders/arms snaked around each other waists which starts an ongoing joke within the clique six about how theyre literally attached at the hip
  • touching for them becomes more much than just a couple-y pda thing, if ever lucas is teetering on tapping into his ‘texas lucas’ side a simple hand on the shoulder from riley is all it takes to calm him down & whenever riley is feeling like shes seconds away from breaking down a hand squeeze or arm caress from lucas will immediately soothe her
  • cory HATES it because ‘topanga touching will lead to other things!!’ so he has this rule about them sitting far apart whenever he’s over but they find a way like lucas will sit on the floor in front of rileys bed while shes laying down on it but she’ll still either play with his hair or have her arm draped over the side of the bed so he can hold her hand/play with her fingers 
  • dont even get me started on rucas hugs/snuggling - cause these losers love it
  • rileys favorite “lucas” hug is the one where her arms are around his neck, which is where she buries her face, and his arms are snug around her waist and in true lucas friar fashion he doesnt have a favorite because anytime rileys in his arms is a favorite anything!!!!! ashdjskgh

stcriescfourlives  asked:

Omg, please tell the Riarkle exposed on Valentine's Day. Please. I need it.

You better like this because I just wasted like an hour of my life typing it out only for it to DELETE ITSELF so now I’m starting over omfggggggg

  • Kay so Riley and Farkle start dating on her Sweet Sixteen but keep it a secret
  • Mostly because they’re just assholes who find the sneaking around thing fun but it’s also Riley being salty about people forgetting her birthday and Farkle worrying Cory will murder him and serve him on a plate with mashed potatoes
  • The ONLY person who knows they’re together is Feeny
  • Because Riley and Feeny are super close like they Skype each other and have tea almost every Saturday it’s very cute
  • So Feeny was well informed on the who Farkle-Drama before they got together, so she told him like immediately after they kissed. He’s super happy for them but he thinks they should tell everyone else they’re dating
  • They don’t listen to Feeny
  • You should always listen to Feeny
  • Okay so anyway it’s Valentine’s Day and everyone’s got plans- Zay’s visiting Vanessa, Auggie’s at Ava’s place, Lucas and Maya are at a bowling alley antagonizing sixth graders, Shawn’s taking Katy ice skating HE’S GONNA PROPOSE SCREAM WITH ME
  • Cory and Topanga have reservations at some fancy place. Morgan showed up in the city out of the blue, so Eric and Josh are taking her to dinner while (jokingly) texting Cory about him being awful for picking his wife over his sister. Cory is so distressed bc he has had the reservations for 3 months omg
  • So anyway Riley’s home alone and Farkle has a plan
  • A good plan
  • An amazing plan
  • But what happens to all of Farkle’s plans? They fail horribly
  • like omg so Riley specifically told Farkle she didn’t want to do anything for the holiday bc she had studying to catch up on and she didn’t want anyone to run into them and figure out they were together
  • And Farkle was like “yeah that’s reasonable”
  • Except he’s trying to be romantic so now he’s trying to fucking break into her apartment
  • Which he normally wouldn’t have a problem with except he wasn’t expecting rain and he sLIPS AND FALLS OFF THE FUCKING FIRE ESCAPE
  • So now Farkle Minkus is just laying on the ground covered in mud and water with ripped flower petals surrounding him and a sad bunny head next to him and he’s just like “this is it. this is how I die”
  • He literally fucking lays there until the rain stops omfg
  • Suddenly he gets a text from Riley asking what he’s up to and he has no words to possibly explain this so he just snaps a selfie and sends it to her with no context
  • Except the dumbass forgot to switch it to selfie mode so actually he just sent her a picture of a decapitated stuffed bunny laying in the mud surrounded by rose petals
  • Poor Riley gets the picture and is like what the fuck is this supposed to mean????
  • So she calls Farkle and he’s trying to sound casual as if he doesn’t have a concussion so he picks up and is like “Do you like surprises? If so, come outside, darling’
  • So Riley’s like ‘what the fuck’
  • So she goes outside and sees him laying there and she’s like FARKLE H O W
  • She helps him up and they stumble up to her apartment and shoves him in the bathroom and tells him to shower while she washes his clothes
  • Which he does but he finishes much faster than the washer so now he asks Riley if he can borrow some clothes and
  • She just hands him a pair of hot pink sweatpants with purple flowers around the ankles
  • And he’s like “this is a weird tactic of trying to see me naked”
  • “Just put them on, if I give you my dad’s clothes he’ll notice. I don’t think any of my shirts will fit you tho”
  • So Farkle just groans and accepts it. However, had he not been concussed, the poor boy would probably have remembered that roughly 87% of his girlfriend’s wardrobe used to belong to him
  • Riley was absolutely just fucking with him and when he wasn’t looking, got plenty of pictures for future black mail
  • Anyway so now Farkle and the ill-fitting sweatpants are sitting on the bench in the kitchen right
  • And Nurse Riley is kneeling on the bench in front of him, her pajamas consisting of basketball shorts and a t-shirt,  checking for injures
  • She notices blood and freaks the fuck out and basically becomes Jacob from Twilight cause she rips her shirt off to put pressure on it (she’s in a sports bra chill)
  • Farkle’s got his arms wrapped around her waist because he feels like he might fall over
  • And then the door opens
  • In walks Cory, Topanga, Eric, Josh and Morgan omg
  • They find these two in an admittedly compromising situation
  • Dead silence for a long moment as everyone stares at each other in shock
  • The silence is finally broken by Eric emitting a high pitched shriek
  • Followed by Josh whispering “OooOOOHHH NOOOOOOO” while covering his eyes in horror
  • Riley opens her mouth to explain but Farkle, in full panic, just screams “I’VE BEEN DATING RILEY FOR TWO MONTHS”
  • The only reaction that gets is Morgan starts applauding like the fucking Opera just ended omg
  • Cory and Topanga look like fish and they just wordlessly leave the room with Topanga gesturing for them to give them a minute
  • Eric is still shrieking and is using the couch to stop himself from collapsing at this point
  • Josh just lays face down on the window seat in the living room and starts to quietly cry to himself
  • Morgan is cracking the fuck up and looks at Riley and deadass says “Atta Girl!”
  • Flash forward like 30 minutes omg no one is talking Stuart and Jen are here now bc they received an angry phone call
  • Riley knows all four parents are about to go OFF because they won’t even let her explain it was a misunderstanding. She texts Maya to come save her
  • Just as the yelling gets underway the door opens to reveal Shawn and Katy!!!
  • Because Katy said yes so Shawn’s immediate reaction was “sWEET I’M ENGAGED I GOTTA GO TELL CORY” but they walk in and immediately figure out the situation
  • Mostly because no one has let Riley and Farkle get dressed yet and Josh is still softly crying in the window
  • Not to mention Eric is on the phone yelling “FEENY MY NICHE WAS VIOLATED BY A ROBOT” omfg
  • Shawn is very torn at this moment because since he’s been more ~involved~ he’s gotten pretty close with Farkle so like half of him is like “Nice, kid!” and the other half is “RILEY MY SWEET SUMMER CHILD NO”
  • So everyone’s getting ready to yell again when Maya and Lucas burst in
  • And boy when Maya figures out the situation she goes off before their parents do omfg
  • Lucas is honestly just confused he has not put it together yet
  • At one point Maya literally yells “You’re not supposed to loose your virginity before me!” and that’s when all the adults in the room remember the yelling is supposed to be their job
  • Everyone starts yelling at once omfg Stuart/Jen go the ‘irresponsible’ route while Corpanga seems more upset this was happening behind their backs while Riley’s yelling in defense of herself while Maya is siding with Corpanga because she didn’t know about this while Katy’s yelling at Maya for apparently having planned when she and Riley would respectively loose their vcards while Shawn goes back and forth between “HOW COULD YOU TWO” and “NICE” and Feeny is yelling on speaker phone trying to get everyone to calm down while Farkle is yelling about the fact no one is getting him medical attention while Eric and Josh just cry
  • Morgan is filming and also defending Riley lmao
  • Everyone eventually calms down enough for Riley to explain it was all a misunderstanding right
  • But then Cory goes “okay but how did Farkle get hurt?’
  • And bless Farkle’s poor concussed little self because he said "I was trying to break into your apartment to surprise Riley and be romantic”
  • Stuart just GROANS
  • Cory just takes a deep breath and says to Farkle, “This is your head start”
  • Farkle gets the message and immediately bolts out the door
  • Still wearing nothing but Riley’s hot pick sweatpants
  • Cory let’s out a war cry and runs after him
  • There’s a moment of silence and Topanga’s like “I’m just gonna follow after them in the car”
  • Eric and Shawn just make eye contact, nod, and start screaming and run after her
  • Riley’s now in her apartment with the Minkus’, Maya, Lucas, Morgan and Josh
  • There is a very awkward tension in the air so Morgan is like “Why don’t we just put on some tv”
  • Top News Story: Billionaire Stuart Minkus’ Half Naked Son Runs Screaming Through the Streets as a Curly Haired Man Chases Him. Car of Laughing Adults Follows Leisurely in Pursuit?“
  • Everyone groans
  • Meanwhile, Eric’s in the car live tweeting the whole event
  • And Eric’s the fucking Senator so he has a fair amount of followers on Twitter. That’s where the news is getting the updates to the story omfg
  • So there’s the basic background info of what started all this (apparently he had been live tweeting the fight too without anyone noticing) but now he’s like ”THEY’VE BEEN RUNNING FOR HALF AN HOUR WITHOUT STOPPING THIS KID IS DEFINITELY A ROBOT”
  • “Okay apparently Shawn Hunter is Mary Poppins because he just pulled a fully loaded water gun out of his coat pocket I don’t see where it could have fit???”
  • So meanwhile in the alley Farkle hit a fucking dead end and Cory’s cracking up and is trying to get him to calm down
  • Like Cory’s a little pissed obviously but not this much he totally just wanted to see how scared of him Farkle actually was omfg
  • So Cory gets him to chill and they have a quick sappy talk about how of course Cory ultimately knows he can trust Farkle with his daughter but also implores them to just take things a little slow
  • And Farkle agrees 1) because duh but 2) it’s not like him and Riley have even done that much in their two months of dating because they are both awkward little ducklings omg
  • They get in the car and thank God Topanga had blankets waiting for Farkle because it’s fucking February and he’s shirtless and barefoot omg
  • They get back to the Matthews apartment and everything is still really awkward
  • Riley heads to her room to get changed and Stuart and Jen are getting ready to take Farkle to the hospital to get him checked out
  • Lucas is still super confused and Zay’s in the group chat trying to get details and he’s like “I don’t know???” Maya just pm’s him to tell him everything omg just let Lucas suffer
  • The two of them leave
  • All the sudden Shawn just fucking groans and looks at Farkle and was like “you couldn’t have held out till June??? Now Eric won the bet!”
  • And everyone starts grumbling while Eric is celebrating until they hear the deathly low angry voice of Riley Erica Matthews
  • “What bet?!”

* so Lucas gets his license before the others because he was held back so he becomes the group’s driver literally everywhere
*the car used to be pappy Jo’s so it’s old
* which Maya makes fun of 24/7 and calls his “rusty steed” but she low key likes it because ya she doesn’t know much about cars but it has a classic old feel to it that she doesn’t know why but she loves it
*One day they are driving on some back road and the car stalls and they’re in the middle of nowhere with no cell signal
* Riley is of course crying and claiming she’s going to die while Farkle is trying to calm her down which is basically him holding her until she stops
*Lucas is trying to fix the car while Smackle attempts to help (mostly flirting with him and pointing out the obvious) she’s just sitting there like “I don’t think that’s supposed to be smoking” while Lucas is stressing out because he knows nothing about cars
*Maya climbed on top of the truck trying to get signal but gives up and is just laying on it bored and saying really unhelp advice “Huckleberry try checking the thing”
*Zay is sitting in the bed of the truck playing phone games while all this goes down. Until his phone dies and he’s freaking out because he was about to beat his high score. Then the situation dawns on him and he starts sayinf unhelpful things like “wow hopefully we won’t die” and Farkle bless his soul had just calmed Riley down but this made her cry again
*Farkle gives up and just lifts Riley onto the car next to Maya who immediately starts running her hands softly through Riley’s hair and muttering calming things
*Finally some car is driving down the road and pulls over, she sees the mental state of Riley and is just like “um how can I help” she literally looks under the hood, messes with a few things then tells him to start the car and it’s working in less than 5 minutes
*Riley jumps off the truck and hugs the lady while crying how she saved their lives

She sobs into Maya’s lap, finding some comfort in the way her best friend strokes her arms. Riley has just walked away from her wedding altar ten minutes ago, and she has been crying non-stop since then.

Her parents and brother had volunteered to stay and talk to the guests about the unexpected turn of events. Maya had dragged her away from the altar

She knows that she has done the right thing. The hesitation on Jordan’s face before he said ‘I do’ and the relief on his face when she refused to marry him keep replaying in her mind. She is certain that that is no way to start their married life – hesitant and regretful.

At the same time, she feels a hole in her chest. She has given so much of herself to the man she has walked away from, and it will take a while before she can pick herself up again.

“What the hell do you think you’re doing?” her mother’s voice booms through the room and Riley sits up. She hiccups through her tears as her mother paces in front of them.

Girl Meets I Do; (May contain spoilers if you haven't seen)

A/N: OKAY! So I got a lot of requests about GMID and I’d love to individually do them but I don’t want to be repetitive so I combined them all in some ways ! I hope this is okay! Also to all the anons that complimented my previous work it genuinely means a lot to me!! Thank you so so much :) 

I altered the episode a little as you’ll have noticed just to make it work! If the rest of the clique six were going to be at the wedding I wanted the Matthews family AKA Shawn’s family to be there too!!

Her mother was set to marry Shawn the following evening, this is everything she’d be hoping for but she was worried it would fall apart at any moment. Maya believes good things don’t happen to her so why should she expect this would be any different. 

After all attempts at waking the deep sleeper Maya went for the romantic approach. 

“Riley, it’s me Lucas, I want to be a veterinarian and I want to kiss your face” Maya puts on her Texan voice. 

Riley kisses the air with a smile and Maya can’t help but grin herself, “ew.”

Rattling on the fire escape gives Maya a fright and her sudden jolt knocks Riley over and she hit the ground, finally waking up.

“What happened?” Riley groggily gets up.

“Your boyfriend and his boyfriends decided to pay you a visit!” Maya pokes her thumb at the window and their three guy friends are standing by waving.

Riley opens the window and whispers, “What are you guys doing here?”

“Smackle is here too!” She raises her hand up making herself known, she was lost behind the boys. 

“Shh!” They all turned to hush her.
