A/N: This is it guys, the last part of my first story is here! I want to thank you so much for reading and commenting and anticipating the story - this was an incredible journey for me, as I am just making my first steps as a writer, if I can even call myself one, but really - THANK YOU! I will be continuing The Girl in the Mirror and I am very happy that a lot of people showed interest in it - I am not going to stop write for Rucas even though the show might be gone. I was going back and forth with the ending, always changing the course of the story but I hope you are satisfied with it and that reading my story was worth it. Feedback is always appreciated and you can comment on what you want to see in The Girl in the Mirror. I really hope you like and enjoy this.

A/N2: I changed the song in this so that it can fit the moments Riley and Lucas shared together .. Also, this song was actually the reason I started this story, it is the inspiration behindd it.

I’ve been sitting at the airport for about an hour now, just looking around at the people coming and going. I sent Josh home, I didn’t want to listen to him convince me to stay, because If I have to be honest, I still wasn’t sure that this is the right thing for me. There was a couple around my age sitting in front of me - they were cuddled up and smiling, but their eyes wanted to tell another story. The second they called for her flight, the two teenagers let go of their hands. But they didn’t want to - there was so much pain in their parting that even my chest hurt a little. I saw people who love each other so deeply, letting go their happiness with tears burning in their eyes. One of them had to leave,even if it was unwillingly. That’s when it hit me - these people are not as lucky as me,to be able to make a choice. They would give everything they have for the opportunity to stay together - and I just decided hop on a plane and never put up a fight for what I want,for what I love. I hurt Lucas so many times but he kept fighting. Now it’s my turn. The tragedy of this beautiful couple gave me what I needed all along.

anonymous asked:

Smackle doesn't even say anything when Maya kisses Farkle on the cheek!

While this is true, Maya kissing Farkle on the cheek while is much different than Farkle admitting that he’ll love Riley wherever she is (a scene that was paralleled by Auggie and Ava, mind you). 

I understand that Smackle didn’t say anything, but keep in mind that Maya has never been a romantic option much past the first few episodes of season one. And even then, it was debatable, to be honest. They shut down Maya and Farkle a long time ago with the “no sparks” high-five. 

The scenes just aren’t comparable. 

“I’m Always Okay” Chapter 3

Chapter 3

You can find chapters 1 & 2 on Tumbr here or on AO3 here

Before Maya could say anything, Zay jumped up and yelled, “I’m spinning first!”.

“Dammit Zay!” Maya groaned.

Riley gasped, “Peaches!! Language!”

“Oops. Sorry Riles.” Maya usually tried to watch her language around Riley, it’s getting harder and harder to do lately

Everyone had their roles appointed; Maya, Josh, Lucas, and Smackle were all playing while Zay, Auggie, Riley, and Farkle were spinning.

Zay spun first, “Alright Maya, right hand on blue”. Great, Maya rolled her eyes, she’s already bending over.. This shouldn’t be awkward at all.

okay i’m rewatching the presentation talks at the end of gm sweet sixteen and NOBODY CAN TELL ME OTHERWISE that after maya says “hope isn’t for suckers after all” lucas is smiling at her (even tho his mouth is covered you can legit tell he’s smiling) and then it shows riley and maya and she’s staring right at him smiling. i’m crying, he’s so proud of her for saying that. what the hell
