Me: Why does the @orphanblack cast look so edgy and serious in those Variety pics? Is it just me or do they look like they’re about to drop the hottest New Wave album of 1985? lol
Also me: OMFG I need that more than air! I want the album, 1985 world tour tickets, and the band poster on my bedroom wall!
*Casey Kasem voice* and here’s the hot new band that’s been climbing the charts with their first top 40 hit. A team of Canadian scientists who traded their microscopes for microphones and will be joining Depeche Mode’s North American tour this summer. This is Team New Wave Mega Force at #3 with Hungry Like the Puppy Wolf.
In world where everything is black and white until you meet your soulmate, Kara lost hope to find one. That is until she met Mon-El. Even if they started the worst way possible, they still managed to overcome all the obstacles and find happiness.
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.

Author’s Notes: In this AU, the triangle never happened and Farkle never outed Riley’s feelings. [Italics indicate flashbacks.] Previous Chapters:1 | 2 Chapter Three: “Rejected.” Word Count: 2,676

End Of Junior Year, Texas.
Soon the only noise that can be heard is the crackling of the bonfire and the distant sound of footsteps. Riley’s footsteps to be specific. Lucas waited a beat, turning his head slightly to stare at the fire in front of him. He watched the colors dance around each other, casting a terracotta glow against his face.
He could feel his body holding tension as he tried to process everything that just happened. Riley doesn’t see him the way he sees her. Brother, she said. He’s like her brother. The worlds echoing in his head leaving a nauseous feeling at the pit of his stomach.
It takes him a minute to remember he’s not alone. Sat on a log behind him is Maya. She has yet to say a word since Riley’s reveal, instead she’s just sitting there, eyes locked on the fire. She quickly glances up at him, expecting him to say something pertaining to everything that just happened but he just holds up a finger. “I’ll be right back.”
And with that he’s on his feet, following the same path Riley and Farkle walked down, hoping it wasn’t too late. Hoping he could still catch her.
Sure enough he spots her, standing off to the side by herself, arms crossed over her chest as she leans against a tree on the outskirts of the ranch. Farkle was nowhere in sight and he figured it was the perfect opportunity to let everything out. If she wanted to drop a bomb on him he was going to return the favor, no matter how messy or painful the outcome was.
