alpha vs. maxis-match challenge

rules: use the same sim for both sides, try to do the same type of hairstyles and make up styles on both sides, if u know what I mean (please refrain from using clarified hair, as it’s a mixture of both alpha and mm), try to make everything different, not just hair; things like skin overlay, make up, eyebrows, and eyes (clothing doesn’t really need to be changed, unless you’re doing a full body thing), and tag #alphavsmm

i was tagged by this cutie: @inquisitive-simmer <33

and idk who to tag because i feel like everyone has already done this??? but if you want to do this, let’s say you’re tagged now by me :)

Here's a crack theory about the white horse...

HOW DID LUCAS GET TOPANGA’S PRINCESS HAT?
(They don’t explicitly say in the final scene whether it’s Topanga’s hat or not, but if it’s not meant to be hers then what the hell was the point of having a whole scene where Topanga gives Riley a hat? We never actually see the hat in that scene, but still. It’s weird.)

AND HOW DID THE PRINCESS HAT GET ON THE SADDLE?
(Maya knows about the hat, Lucas doesn’t. And even if he did, HE sure didn’t sneak into Riley’s room/stuff to get it. He would’ve needed some help.)

WHO ORIGINALLY ACQUIRED THE HORSE?
(MAYA DID. Right?)

WHO PROMISED TO HELP RILEY’S PRINCESS DREAM COME TRUE?
(MAYA DID.)

LUCAS DIDN’T PLAN THE PRINCESS/HORSE THING.

MAYA DID. HE HELPED.

but wait, there’s more…

The white horse scene comes right after the “ambassador to the world” moment. (Awwww!) None of these kids are technically dating right now, but between the rose in the hat and the harmonica it’s clear the dude puts out extra effort for Maya that he hasn’t put out for Riley before this point. Like he was thinking about Maya in Texas enough that he brought a harmonica to school, I mean…

(Oh, and Maya bites her lip when he mounts the horse but that’s none of my business.)

Maya steps down from the stage, Riley gets on the horse and it’s all cute and then we cut to…smiling Maya. Then we cut back to Riley and Lucas on the horse but LOOK AT IT AGAIN. We cut to Maya and then right back to Lucas/Riley, but I dare you watch that moment again and then try to swear on your life and your children’s lives to me that Lucas isn’t looking back at Maya in this kind of inscrutable way for a significant second before Riley speaks and they ride off. I mean, why not just show Maya smiling as they leave? Why that back and forth cut? What exactly is Lucas doing with his face there? (Somebody please gif it or something, the Maya cut and the Lucas cut here because wtf?)

LUCAS AND MAYA PLANNED THE HORSE THING TOGETHER FOR RILEY JUST LIKE RILEY AND MAYA PLANNED THE DVD FOR LUCAS.

It makes so much sense when you look at the episode on its own, but then later in GM Secret of Life I’m pretty sure Lucas says “I got you a white horse!” so unless he’s lying (or unless Maya told him not to tell Riley she was involved) that line from Lucas pretty much blows this theory apart. Which is why it’s a crack theory. (EDIT: he actually says, “we rode a white horse! who does that?!” THIS MEANS THERE IS NOTHING IN CANON TO CONTRADICT THIS THEORY BUT LOTS TO SUPPORT IT. It’s still a crack theory though. 😉)

But it’s SUCH A GOOD CRACK THEORY. Because the GM Friendship/white horse bit actually makes MORE sense this way:

Seriously how would Lucas have gotten that hat on his own? Or is it just supposed to be a random hat? If so, why make such a big deal of Topanga giving Riley a hat? And am I supposed to believe that Maya got one horse and then Lucas went and got a second one? I mean…maybe. But okay. And why doesn’t he look OVERJOYED when Riley puts her head on his back? And what’s with that inscrutable look towards something in front of him?

And didn’t Maya spend the whole episode trying to make sure Riley got to be a princess? Why is Lucas suddenly taking point now?

I’m just saying. I love this theory. I hate that there isn’t any explicit proof for it and that it’s probably just complete hooey…but we can keep it as headcanon.

YOU CAN PRY THIS CRACK THEORY HEADCANON FROM MY COLD, DEAD HANDS, GMW WRITERS. 💛
