I’m really behind on prompts so I won’t be posting the list. I’m working my way through it. The next one is “don’t trust me” for riley/farkle i posted a sneak peek if you want to read it. It’s going to be long as hell so there might be some prompts in between now and when I finally post it. Anyways…
This isn’t as angsty as it could be. This is really vague and I didn’t put in a name for Maya’s guy so you can use your imagination for that.
Line of Dialogue Series:
In which she says no.
Rating T: for language, angst?
“Don’t fucking touch me!”
“Don’t fucking touch me!” Maya
scrambles away from him as far as the gown allows her.
“Maya,” Lucas pleads helplessly.
“Don’t.” She holds up her finger as
a warning. “I mean it.” And because he has a death wish he ignores it. “Don’t
come near me.”
She cuts him off, “I don’t care
what Riley said.” She’ll deal with her idealist friend later. “I don’t want to know what she said that gave you
this CRAZY idea that you should show up at my wedding.” Obviously not sending
him an invitation hadn’t been a big enough signal. Then again, he’d always been
“I love you!” She doesn’t react.
Just stands there her blue eyes blank. “I love you, Maya Hart.”
She reaches up to run a hand
through her hair but remembers she can’t exactly do that with a veil on her
head. “Will you stop saying that?”
“But it’s the truth.”
Her eyes narrow at him, “Seems like
an awfully convenient time to suddenly care about the truth Friar.”
“I know I messed up.”
“Talk about the understatement
of the century.”
“Give me another chance.” Three
years ago she might have actually considered it. When she’d been destroyed and
left clutching a tub of ice cream for comfort.
“Thank you! I promise you won’t
regret it.” He blinks, “Come again.”
“I said no. I’m getting married to
the love of my life. Why the hell would I say yes?”
“I love you.” His confused
expression is just how she remembers it. It’s hard to forget because nine times
out of ten that was what he looked like. Confused.
“You keep saying that but I don’t believe
you, Lucas. So no, I won’t give you another chance. No, I’m not going to ride
off into the sunset with you on that horse you have outside. And don’t you even
think about giving me that rose that’s in your hat.” He averts his gaze, his
ears pink he twists his hat in his hands. She’s offered a glimpse of the Lucas
she used to know but even that isn’t enough. “I’m going to leave this room and
marry my soulmate and you’re going to move on.”
He plays with a frayed shirt
thread. “You make it sound so easy.”
“It isn’t.” She speaks from
experience. “But eventually, you’ll stop feeling like you’re going to
suffocate. You’ll actually be able to sleep at night. Hell, you might even
smile.” There’s one already trying to peek through his downtrodden gaze. “Then
you’re going to meet a nice cowgirl and invite me to your wedding.”
“Are those the only options?”
“Yes Lucas, those are it. You’ll
thank me one day.” He never did thank those seniors but the way her eyes
sparkle with promise tells him that this is going to be different.
There’s a knock on the door and
Cory pokes his head in Shawn’s head popping in above his.
“Ready?” Cory asks his eyes
nervously flicking between her and Lucas.
Maya exhales giving the two grown
men a nod. “Ready.”
“Later Huckleberry.” She gives him
a peck, her veil rasping against his cheek.
Shawn glares while Cory looks
sympathetic. The door closes behind them.
“Later.” He whispers into the empty
room. He tosses the rose in the garbage and is putting on his hat when his phone
It’s an unknown number but the
message is familiar. A choked laugh escapes him.
Lucas, move on or else.” It’s followed by plenty of knife and pistol
He snaps a picture of himself
His phone buzzes again. “Also, move that fucking horse.”
Hey Arseon I just wanted to say I absolutely LOVE your fanfics. You write smut very, very well. *wink* I think you're really neat and I think your platonic stories and headcannons are adorable. You have really made me see how being Asexual really works. Thanks for opening my mind to that!
Aaaaaahhh, thank you!! I’m super glad you’ve been enjoying the fics and headcanons and smut. X3
I’m glad I could help you learn more about asexuality too, although there’s really no one way that being ace works. ^^ But that’s one of the great things about this little corner of the fandom - there are so many rad ace friends around here, and there’s just so much variation and nuance, from not wanting anything to do with sex full stop through to my vast entertainment of writing fictional characters going at it but not wanting anything to do with it personally, and everything and anything in between. I’ve learned so much from everyone else too! Honestly, the only qualifier is not experiencing sexual attraction, and then everything after that is totally individual. People can have totally different relationships to the idea of sex and still all be totally valid as aces (or whatever sexuality they identify as tbh) and it’s awesome to see everyone being so accepting of that*.
(*Everyone in this little community/corner of Tumblr that I’m in, I mean… I’m sure there’s still plenty of jerkasses out there who don’t. But I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone here who’s been nasty about it. You peeps are cool. uwu)
I FIGURED IT ALL OUT! It all makes sense now! I was trying to bring in some of the major characters too early! Everything is so clear, food tastes good, the sun is shining, and most importantly my story is beginning to make sense.
