i don’t know if that makes me believe in coincidence or fate or sheer blind luck, but it definitely makes me believe in something

Maya/Riley

So sometimes I’m a goober/borderline creeper and I check to see tags people add on my reblogged posts. They are always really creative and funny, but today I saw one that actually had me pretty moved. 

The original post was someone asking me why I picked Riley over Maya as my favorite character on Girl Meets World (Cause let’s be real, most people choose Maya, hands down). My response was that she is a complex character who’s subtle growth arc has been long winded but beautiful, and a character whose optimism and faith in humanity is something our future generation should be learning from. 

Someone reblogged this, and their tag was: “Maya is my favorite but this is a cool explanation. We are all Maya’s living in a world that needs more Riley’s”. 

And I just need to pass that message along, because I think it’s the dopest, realest, truest thing I’ve seen in a minute about Riley as a character and Girl Meets World as a show in general. It is a perfect explanation as to why people should hate less on her characterization and instead, attempt to see things from a different perspective, focusing more on the bigger picture and the importantance of her character in a climate like today’s society. 

So good job, reblogger. I see you :)

I'm putting my books away.<p/><b>Maya:</b> I meant with Farkle. He's one of your best friends and you won't talk to each other.<p/><b>Riley:</b> About that. I have a plan. I'm going to act like an adult.<p/><b>Maya:</b> You're going to talk to him?<p/><b>Riley:</b> No. I'm going to ignore my problems until it goes away.<p/><b>Maya:</b> (rolls her eyes) That's mature.<p/><b>Riley:</b> I know. Oh, you were being sarcastic, weren't you?<p/><b>Maya:</b> You need to talk to him.<p/><b>Riley:</b> I can't.<p/><b>Maya:</b> Why not?<p/><b>Riley:</b> Because.<p/><b>Maya:</b> I need more.<p/><b></b> Riley looks around to see if anybody else is in the hallway.<p/><b>Riley:</b> Because I have feelings for Farkle and I'm afraid he won't feel the same.<p/><b>Maya:</b> That's it?<p/><b>Riley:</b> What do you mean "that's it"?<p/><b>Maya:</b> Have you seen the way that Farkle looks at you?<p/><b>Riley:</b> No. How does he look at me?<p/><b>Maya:</b> The same way that Matthews looks at mashed potatoes.<p/><b>Riley:</b> Really?<p/><b>Maya:</b> He looks at you like you're his whole universe. Farkle would do anything for you. He even kept Pluto a planet in his room for you.<p/><b>Riley:</b> But why hasn't Farkle wanted to talk to me about the kiss?<p/><b>Maya:</b> He's insecure. He's going through the same thing you are. He probably doesn't think you have feelings for him.<p/><b>Riley:</b> I don't know what to say to him.<p/><b>Maya:</b> Say how you feel.<p/><b>Riley:</b> After school.<p/><b>Maya:</b> No. Now! You will find another excuse if you wait.<p/><b>Riley:</b> You can't make me.<p/><b>Maya:</b> (Smiles) Can't I?<p/><b></b> Riley's face turns pale.<p/><b>Riley:</b> Maya, don't.<p/><b></b> Maya raises her hand.<p/><b>Maya:</b> Ring Power!
