me: *thinking about seventeen and how i constantly sacrifice sleep to stay up and stream their performances, wait for their teasers, and re-watch videos but also remembering how i don’t mind doing all that because i genuinely love watching these 13 boys perform and goof around and laugh, seeing their hard work being rewarded and realizing how far they’ve come and how far they’re going to go, and that seeing them grow up before my very eyes makes me so so so happy*
originally an ask I was going to send to @yeoldeshipper about all
these theories about Lucas liking Maya since season 1/before he liked Riley
(idk there are several theories) and how that had the potential of making Lucas
look like a jerk if the writers were to ever reveal that to the audience.
with those theories that say Lucas has liked Maya since season 1, heck since
the beginning (I’ll later explain my take on this). But I don’t think he knew it. I don’t think Lucas consciously
liked Maya. I think he consciously liked Riley. Or rather, he had his own
definition of “like” which he applied to Riley and, in the meanwhile, he didn’t
fully realize what was going on between him and Maya.
Why aren't Riley and Lucas going to the movies alone? Why is Maya going anyway? She doesn't have to feel like a 3rd wheel if she isn't there. I'm not asking this in a mean way but are Rilucas not spending time alone? Are they not ready for that yet?
The fact that they not-so-subtly called back to Sneak Attack (which of course ends with the Core Four making plans for a group movie hang right before Missy says “grow up,” and Riley replies “not yet) is very 👀.
Maya looks over at Riley and Lucas after Zay asks her to the movies, and tbh I expected one or both of them to say something like “oh we were gonna go just us. don’t worry, you guys don’t have to third wheel it if you don’t want to,” but nope. And this the the ONE AND ONLY Rilucas date that’s even mentioned onscreen. We never actually see them go on a date as bf/gf and no other offscreen dates are ever mentioned. Pretty interesting choice on the writer’s part if you ask me. 🤔
