I love Paige McCullers
I love PLL
I love Lindsey Shaw
I love Paily
But there two thing i just cannot deal with anymore:
1. the hate
2. the inequality and poor treatment of one Paige McCullers
I wish or hope that MK and the other writers could see what goes on in this fandom. Do they know how bad it gets? Do they know that there are people like me, who get so frustrated to the point of not wanting to watch the show anymore?
You know what they do know? it’s that this show pulls you in so far. and that people get so attached to these characters, that it becomes one of the hardest things to turn your back on them. So they probably know that even with all we have to deal with, as long as Paige McCullers is on this show, we’re not going anywhere.
But that doesn’t change the fact that it’s unacceptable that if they do see it, they aren’t doing anything to change it.
These are kids..13, 14, 15, 16 years old..turning into Alisons because for some reason they completely missed the part where A was after her in the first place because she was a bitch to everybody.
Alison is an amazing villain. A great complex character. And she’s good as a manipulative, shady, emotionless girl. She doesn’t need to change. But kids do need to stop looking up to her, idolizing and romanticizing her. I can’t wrap my brain around why they do.
Paige is an inspiring character. She says “Hey, you went through something horrible, you made a few mistakes, you were a bitch for one episode. but you got to the other side. you accepted yourself and that made you a better person. you got the girl. you won. it got better.”
how do they not see that as the better choice?
As much as i want Paily together and happy, if Lindsey leaves for good (which i really don’t think she is) i’ll be relieved. Paige will be off at Stanford living her life. Lindsey will be able to hopefully be a part of a show that will realize what they have and use it. And i won’t have to deal with all of this shit anymore. But i really don’t want her to leave. I’d rather feel stuck with the show with her on it, than to not have Paily. Because Paily is too important. I wish more people saw how important.
