Up until today, while reading a fanfic, I had NO IDEA. What my main reason for shipping Riley and Lucas was! Not one specific moment had stood out to me where I knew it was going to be endgame.. I just knew from the very beginning that they would be! MY REASON WHY: is because they remind me so much of Haley and Nathan on One Tree Hill!! The truest of the true OTP! Haley is quiet and shy, quirk and smart and beautiful in a subtle way. Nathan is the bad boy, the athletic boy who doesn’t answer to no one and could get ANY girl he wants! Riley is beautiful and smart and shy. Lucas is athletic and hotheaded at times but he calms in Riley’s presence.. That is exactly how NATHAN SCOTT IS FOR HALEY! Nathan Scott wanted nothing more than to be the best man, the best father and best friend to Haley that he could be! I think that Lucas wants the same thing.. He doesn’t want to go to that place again and when he’s with Riley, he does but only when need to be (Rileytown)
Nathan Scott was with all these beautiful girls… Brooke, Peyton,Taylor, etc.. But he found something with Haley that he needed most of all. I think that’s how they are going to play this out between Rucas! Lucas could have any girl he wanted… And I think they are going to do that as the story progresses.. Maya is beautiful, rebellious and wild and finds a talent and love of art…to me she really reminds me of Peyton Sawyer in OTH! Peyton is beautiful, rebellious and wild and she has a talent and a love of music.. Yet when Peyton and Nathan dated.. They didn’t have anything more than sex. Anything more than a fire and a spark. They were two beautiful people who believed they needed to be together because of what people thought.. She was a cheerleader, he a basketball player.. Yet, they DIDNT LOVE EACH OTHER IN THAT WAY!
Ohhhh and must i brink up the whole SUMMER RAIN THING!! i mean come on… HALEY AND NATHAN HAD A THING FOR RAIN!!! they were going to London on their honeymoon just because it rains ALL THE TIME THERE! People might say “Lucas and Riley are just summer rain, how boring” or something along the lines of “Fire! thats what you need!!!” lets just take a look at how awesome rain can be though… thank you Naley!
