These two im going to miss the most

anonymous asked:

tearful goodbye as group goes in separate ways after graduation. not really riarkle, but you could tie that in.

Smackle heading off to Stockholm to go to university wasn’t really a surprise to anyone, as it was what she had always planned on doing. The shock came when she and Farkle broke up without even attempting long-distance.

“It’s not like they didn’t consider their options,” Zay mused, “They’re both smart people, I’m sure that they calculated the probability if the relationship working and realized that maybe it would be easier to end it.”

“It’s the end of an era,” commented Lucas, “At least not everything is coming to an end,” he said as he smiled at Maya under his arm.

“Get a room!” yelled Zay.

Through all of this, it was Riley who remained silent. The group was splitting up, and for real this time. When there was the threat of her moving to London years ago, she thought it was the worst thing that could happen, but this was worse because it was actually happening. She knew her friends would never be truly gone, but they would be scattered all across the globe. With Maya headed to the New School in Paris to study Art, she didn’t know what to do. Lucas was going to the University of Texas and Zay was going to LA to pursue a career in dance. Her only solace was that Farkle would be in the same place: Yale. It took a lot of work but Riley had been admitted to her first choice school, and she got to attend it with one of her best friends. They were even going to live together in an apartment, and somehow, this made her feel a lot better.

Smackle then joined them, followed by Farkle. The group sat in Topanga’s and reminisced about their lives together and buzzed with excitement for the future.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The time came for the group to go their separate ways. They all had flights leaving around the same time. 

Smackle left first, they all made a tearful goodbye for their last time all together. 

Next was Lucas. He addressed the group before talking privately with Maya in a corner with their foreheads touching, probably saying their final “I love you”s before he headed for the plane to fly down to Texas. 

Zay’s farewell didn’t focus on the sadness of leaving but on all of the happiness and opportunities that life would offer them. He headed West and then it was Maya’s turn. 

At this point, Riley lost it. Her best friend, her better half was headed to another continent where she would be over three thousand miles away.

“Look at us,” Maya said, “The three of us, together ‘til the end.”

After hearing this, Riley broke down again, melting into a puddle on the floor.

Maya got down on the floor and got close to Riley, “Riles, we’re about to go out and live our dreams. This is good! Even if I’m in France, I’m still just a phone call away. You can come visit, and in four years we’ll graduate and get to figure out the next chapter. Together. Like always. I’ll call you guys every single day. Plus, you’ll have Farkle! You’ll never lose the group, not ever.

“Peaches, I’m gonna miss out on so much of your life!”

“You’re not gonna miss a thing. I promise I’ll keep you updated. If anything even remotely interesting happens, you’ll be the first person I tell.”

An announcement came over the airport speakers announcing that Maya’s flight was beginning boarding.

The three old friends huddled in the airport, saying their final goodbyes.

As she watched Maya walk away, Riley saw her future clearly and allowed herself to be happy for herself and her future.

“Call me when you land!” Riley yelled after Maya.

Maya gave a thumbs up and smiled before stepping into the jet bridge and disappeared around the corner.

“Ready to go?” Farkle asked.

“Let’s take on the world.”

darling don’t you ever grow up (just stay this little)

Riley thinks about her past, her present, and her future.

(or: there are some things in life you keep with you forever)

[AO3]

The bay window has always been her safe place. It’s an unquestionable, irrevocable fact. Everyone knows it, but as she stands there, hands in her pockets and looking at the view she’s known her whole life, Riley thinks everyone has it backward.
