1. Chances are EXCELLENT (but not 100%) that the contract with Modest ends 31 December 2015 or thereabout.
2. Modest were the ones previously imposing the visibly harsh closeting (whether at Sony’s directive or not, the tactics are not something we’ve seen from Sony before and they were not smooth and believable as closeting usually is and would have been if Sony was specifically directing the moves). That type of closeting is not happening any longer, whatever the reason, it is DONE.
3. Even if Sony wanted Harry & Louis closeted in the past, “the future is now” and trying to continue marketing 1D as teen idols is passe. Either they want to continue on as mature artists or they want to quit after their Sony contract is up. Either way, the closeting serves no purpose any longer.
4. Harry has had one (semi) confirmed girlfriend in 5 years, Taylor Swift. Louis has had two confirmed girlfriends in 5 years, Hannah and Eleanor. The likelihood of either of them getting a new “confirmed” girlfriend, as opposed to someone they are regularly linked to in the press, but NEVER TALK ABOUT, is pretty much nil at this point. (Has Harry EVER mentioned Nadine’s name? No.)
5. They are happy right now. Things are going well for the band; their careers, and images are doing well after a MAJOR blow to the band/brand and they are about to release their fifth album that they are really excited about because a) it’s as good as or better than FOUR; or b) it’s the 5th of a 6 album deal with Sony and they are almost free.
6. So while no one is asking you to enjoy the chatter about Tamara and Louis (though seriously, she’s cool, anyone I see hating on her gets unfollowed), it would behoove everyone to just shake it off (ha!). Louis isn’t going to be telling parma ham stories about her, she’s just a friend and a name that may be mentioned with his occasionally over the next few months to keep the excitement on this side of the fandom down to manageable levels.
It’s all good folks. Happy Louis and happy Harry (and happy Niall and happy Liam) is what matters, not shady timelines or our desire to see this as the last chapter of a VERY long, angsty fic.
They have a plan, it is clear and obvious, and it’s working. Let them do their jobs. And lets just sit back and enjoy being fans of some lovely young men :)
*Many spoilers ahead - STOP now if you have not watched every single episode of PLL to date. (I recommend that you open this post in your browser, rather than in your Tumblr app, because there is a LOT to load.)
Have you ever wondered how in the hell Rosewood’s timeline makes any damn sense? Well, you aren’t alone. I found myself frequently running into confusion about when things were actually happening in Rosewood, so I tried to search the internet for a solution. I just could not find an accurate timeline anywhere… so I decided to make my own. I’ve laid it all out for you the BEST I could, and I tried to be as accurate as possible.
*Please note that Rosewood does NOT function by the law’s of reality. Every month that I have listed on this timeline is subject to contradict certain scenes from the show. Because of this, I beg of you to please just ignore some of the minor details (I know it’s hard), and enjoy being able to track how much time has gone by. It is near IMPOSSIBLE to get this timeline 100% accurate, since PLL loves to bend the rules of space & time.
*Check back to my timeline often, as I will be editing & adjusting the last few sections to reflect details provided during upcoming episodes. I edit this post constantly so there are a bunch of other versions of it floating around out there (but this is obv the most up-to-date, so please check back.)
Let me know if you have any suggestions. This took me forever & I’m super proud of it :)
Spring 2005- Melissa & Ian’s Senior Prom “A Night at the Opera” takes place at Rosewood High. This event must have significance since “Big A” makes the girls reenact it when they are imprisoned at the dollhouse 7 years later (525).
June 2005 - Melissa Hastings (the Homecoming Queen) and CeCe Drake (the Prom Queen), along with NAT members Ian Thomas, Jason DiLaurentis & Garret Reynolds all graduate from Rosewood High (210).
October 24th, 2007- Marion Cavanaugh mysteriously dies at Radley Sanitarium after jumping off, or most likely getting pushed off, the roof (213).
October 2008 - One year after Marion’s death, Jenna Marshall moves to Rosewood when her mother marries Daniel Cavanaugh (Toby’s father). Alison invites her into their friend circle, but Jenna declines, thus the Alison & Jenna feud is born (213).
October, 2008- Halloween freshman year, “A” starts bullying Ali (213).
Unspecified time in 2009 - Alison meets Ezra Fitz [who she nicknamed Board Shorts, in honor of his favorite beer: Board Shorts Ale]. She meets him at The Hart & The Huntsman pub near Hollis College when she is hanging out with CeCe. She lies to him about her age but NEVER has a sexual relationship with him (425).
Unspecified time in 2009 - Alison takes the Liars to Ian’s college frat party, where a drunk girl gets pushed down the stairs (by either CeCe or Alison). CeCe allegedly got kicked out of UPenn due to this (118).
Summer 2009 - The summer before Sophomore year, when the girls were the closest. They spent a lot of time at the lake, discussing their friendship and watching Alison bully everyone, including themselves. She targets Mona & Lucas specifically, but she really just hates on anyone that is labeled as a “loser” in her eyes. She is the epitome of a mean girl (108).
Summer 2009 - Alison goes to Cape May several different times where she hangs out with CeCe, Jason, Melissa, Wilden & the yet to be identified “Beach Hottie” (who is probably Wilden himself, but this has not been clarified yet. Just remember that Beach Hottie is a completely different person than Board Shorts, because we found out (in 4x24) that Ali did NOT have a sexual relationship with Ezra, but did with Beach Hottie). Alison also has her pregnancy scare during one of those trips and tells CeCe that Beach Hottie was the alleged father (317).
Summer 2009- Ian Thomas was a very busy guy, carrying on relationships with Melissa, Alison and Spencer. He also was responsible for most of the NAT spy videos.
Summer 2009 - Spencer gradually becomes addicted to amphetamines and argues with Melissa the whole summer. She & Ali also have a lot of tension since Spencer was the only one who stood up to her back in those days (423).
July 4th, 2009 - The Jenna Thing: Alison & the Liars blind Jenna (102).
July 2009 - Alison blackmails Toby into taking the blame for The Jenna Thing by saying that she will unveil his inappropriate relationship with Jenna to everyone. He is sent away to reform school, which he ends up being thankful for since it freed him from Jenna (106).
July 2009 - Alison gives the girls their friendship bracelets (102).
August 2009- Alison arrives to the Hastings with a bloody lip. Only Veronica witnessed this. We still don’t know who hit her, only that it was a girl (323).
August 2009 - Alison goes to her grandmother’s house in Georgia (where she spent a lot of time with Tippi the bird whenever she visited. That summer she frequently called Mrs. Grunwald at Cicero College, so Tippi memorized the phone number). At some point during this trip, Ali heads to Hilton Head with Ian.
September 1st, 2009 - Toby ends things with Jenna, explaining his tattoo “901 Free At Last″ (110).
September 1st, 2009- Bethany Young escapes from Radley.
*The infamous night when Alison goes missing.
Chronological Order of Events: (This is only the order of events as we know it so far… it is definitely subject to change.)
1.) On the morning of September 1, Alison is at Hilton Head with Ian. Melissa arrives and argues with Ian, so Alison steals the NAT videos from his computer and takes off.
Dressed as Vivian Darkbloom, she calls Duncan Albert, who flies her from Hilton Head to a field in Pennsylvania. She has a scheduled meeting with “A” in Brookhaven (which was set up by their conversations through the classified ads in the newspaper). This is when Alison spotted Mona at the boutique across the street from the creepy Doll Hospital (Flashback from Episode 225.) Mona said in the flashback that she spotted Ali in Brookhaven, but we later find out it was actually the other way around. Ali spotted her. Even though it is strange that Mona would be in Brookhaven at the same time, Alison still doesn’t seem to put 2 and 2 together that she is “A” yet when she sees her. She is still underestimating “Loser Mona”.
2.) Alison thinks Jenna is “A”, so after leaving Brookhaven, she stops by the school for the visually impaired in Philly to threaten her with the NAT videos (which show Jenna forcing herself on her step brother Toby). After telling Jenna that she is going to “bury her” if she comes back to Rosewood, Alison walks out. On her way, she gets a text from “A”: “Bitch can’t see you, but I do. Tonight’s the night I kill you. -A”. Alison then realizes that Jenna is not “A” and goes back home.
Apparently, this confrontation was so harsh that it made Jenna break down. This is when Sydney Driscoll came into the picture. She was volunteering at the school, and gave Jenna a shoulder to cry on after Ali left… Then sometime later that day, Jenna ignores Ali’s warnings and heads back to Rosewood with Garrett.
3.) After leaving Jenna, Alison immediately rents out a storage unit. She hides the NAT videos in her old Tweety Bird lunch box then locks it away with the key.
4.) Alison returns home in a taxi and is greeted in front of her house by the Liars. After they say their Hello’s, she goes inside to change and finds the yellow tank top lying on her bed (which was a gift from Jessica that they had just bought together a few days before). She puts it on, then sees an “A” message written on her mirror in jungle red lipstick.
5.) Alison hides the storage unit key in the bottom of her favorite snow globe. She heads over to Emily’s house and gives the snow globe to her, making her promise to keep it safe.
6.) Alison has plans to have dinner with her family, so she heads back home. After dinner, she goes to leave for the sleepover in Spencer’s barn and her mother is talking on the phone. Jessica is distressed about something that seems to be going down at that moment (Bethany’s escape from Radley possibly?) and forbids Ali to go out, but of course she does anyways. On her way out, Ali steals some of her mother’s pills.
7.) Alison arrives to the barn and gets a call from Toby, which she initially ignores. After some laughs & drinking, she proceeds to drug the girls with her mother’s sleeping pills so that she can see if any of them are “A” or not. (Spencer eventually wakes up later due to her amphetamine addiction.)
8.) Alison then meets with the boys in this order: Toby (in front of the barn so he can thank her for getting Jenna off his back. He had just broken things off with Jenna that day. He also gives Ali his sweater because she’s cold). Then she meets with Ezra (in his car, where he breaks it off with her after discovering her real age), & then finally Ian (at the kissing rock, where he begs her to give his NAT videos back.)
9.) After Ali refused to give back the videos, Ian, Garret & Jenna meet up in Alison’s bedroom to search for them.
[Note: From this point on, I am not 100% sure on order of events, but my analysis is close. Hopefully I can make it more accurate after the “Summer of Answers”.]
10.) From the kissing rock, Alison walks back to the barn where Spencer is already awake and waiting for her. Ali & Spencer get in an argument, which Melissa overhears but doesn’t see (Jessica & CeCe also witnessed this fight). Alison discovers Spencer’s amphetamine pills when they fall to the ground, so she tells Spencer to go back to the barn and sleep it off.
Melissa then sees Spencer walk away with the shovel in hand, but doesn’t see Alison, so she thinks Spencer has harmed Ali in a fit of rage. Melissa frantically runs over to the DiLaurentis house to search for Alison & make sure Spencer didn’t do anything stupid.
11.) Melissa arrives to the DiLaurentis house and finds Ian, Garret, & Jenna in Alison’s bedroom. Garret & Jenna leave while Ian & Melissa stay.
12.) On her walk back from the fight with Spencer, Alison catches Garret & Jenna in her backyard. Garret pretends to kill her with the field hockey stick (why Alison went along with this, I don’t really know) and since Jenna is blind, she believes he has done so.
13.) After Garret & Jenna run away, Ali gets up from the ground and immediately meets with Byron in her back yard. (The fact that Alison is still standing next to the exact same tree that she had her confrontation with Garrett & Jenna at, proves that these events took place back to back.) She has been blackmailing Byron for money (due to his affair with Meredith) but this time he refuses her and walks away from the situation. (Garrett sees this taking place when he comes back to check on Ali). Byron sees Melissa walking out of the DiLaurentis house as he is leaving the back yard.
14.) Melissa exits the DiLaurentis house, while on the phone. “Do I have to call 911 to get your attention?” (presumably she is speaking with CeCe, or maybe Wilden, in which the “911″ reference would make complete sense). It is also assumed that Alison heads back to the barn at this point.
15.) Melissa meets up with CeCe (who is also blonde & wearing a yellow top) in the back yard and begs her to help her get the NAT videos back. Jason walks outside drunk and high and sees this conversation, then passes out on the lawn chair. Melissa & CeCe run off.
16.) While Jason is passed out, Garret & Jenna slip a note in his pocket that says “I know what you did.” They want to make Jason think he is the one who harmed Ali (even though Garrett knows he didn’t even hurt her at all, so I am a little confused about this). This situation is also referred to as “The Jason Thing”.
17.) Ali arrives back to the barn where all of the girls, including Spencer, are fast asleep. She waits for a text from “A” but when she doesn’t get one, she decides to walk home.
18.) When Alison gets to her house, she sees her mother through the window. All of a sudden, Ali gets struck from behind with a rock, and Jessica sees it happen. She presumes Alison is dead, so she buries her in the backyard under the dirt at the gazebo. Whoever hit Alison with the rock did not actually kill her, but Jessica buried her anyway thinking she was indeed dead. (Why would she ever bury her own daughter, unless it was to protect another one of her children from getting in trouble?) The whole time she kept repeating “What did you do?“
19.) Mrs. Grunwald, who is psychic and “had a bad feeling”, arrives in the DiLaurentis back yard just in time to pull Alison out of the ground before she suffocates.
She drives her to a hospital and goes inside to get help, but Alison runs away when she isn’t looking.
20.) Meanwhile, Bethany arrives to the DiLaurentis house at some point after all of this occurs, dressed in identical clothing, and is knocked out by an unknown person who hit her in the back of the head with the shovel. Her assailant hit her so hard that it left an indent in her skull, but didn’t quite kill her.
21.) Not sure exactly where Melissa was between her talk with CeCe & this particular point (and I would also like to add that I think Melissa is lying about this part of the story), but unable to locate Alison, she heads home. On her way, she cuts through the DiLaurentis back yard and finds a blonde girl in a yellow tank top (Bethany) lying unconscious near the gazebo. She thinks Spencer killed Alison after witnessing their fight earlier, so to protect her sister, she buries Bethany alive (thinking it was Alison) in the same exact grave that Jessica had just dug for Ali.
22.) Mona just so happens to be driving around that night and she sees Alison walking on the street, covered in dirt and completely in shock. They drive to the Lost Woods Resort, where Alison checks in as Vivian Darkbloom. She stays in Room 1, while Mona stays next door in Room 2 (her lair). They stay the night.

[Note: Episode 208 created somewhat of a snag for me during my timeline-making process. Hanna receives a “Save The Date” invitation for Tom & Isabelle’s wedding. Ashley opens the envelope, and we see that her thumb is covering the first few letters of the month, so you can’t read it. All that can be seen on the invitation is: ”—ber 19th, 2011" (which I think means December 19th, 2011.) But this pisses me off, because it is totally 2010 in Rosewood time! It has been confirmed on numerous occasions that at this point, it is has only been a little over a year since Ali went missing & we know for a fact she went missing in 2009. So basically, this Save the Date invitation was a huge f*ck up on the producer’s part! I am going to choose to ignore this little detail. Come to think of it, this may be why the producers decided to stop putting actual dates in the show, because I honestly don’t think we’ve seen another specific date since then. (Besides Halloween Ghost Train, which just said October 31st, with no year.) So please, pay no mind to this little detail and others like it. It is a complete error on production’s part, and it probably happened simply because the episode aired in 2011.]

*It has been almost 5 months since Maya’s murder & Mona’s “Original A” reveal.
Late August 2011-
“Original A” is back in the game. Mona says Red Coat is “in charge” and she begins to order her around, but we still do not know exactly who this person is that she was referring to (301).
Late August 2011- “Big A” anonymously begins to take over the game. Although “Original A” is still predominant this season, we as viewers finally start see “Big A”s influence creep in (301).
August 29th, 2011 - Emily wakes up at Alison’s grave, with the body missing from the ground (301).

September 2011 - Spencer & Jason find Alison’s gold anklet at April Rose Boutique and turn it in to the police. There is blood on it (Alison’s & someone else’s, which later turns out to be Hanna’s).
Since the blood on the anklet doesn’t match Garret, the charges for Ali’s murder are dropped. However, he is still in custody for possibly being involved in Maya’s murder (305).

September 2011 - Kenneth DiLaurentis moves back to Rosewood (307).

October 31st, 2011- Bethany’s body is recovered on the Ghost Train in a bin of ice (313).
[Note: November 2011, the LONGEST month in Rosewood history, begins. This is a TERRIBLE month for the Liars! So much happens in so little time. I would love for the timeline to be realistic to real life, but unfortunately it just doesn’t coincide. So in order for us to understand, we have to pretend that the month of November lasts about twice (maybe even 3 times) as long in Rosewood than it does in actual reality. It is the only thing that makes sense since it is STILL November throughout all of Season 4, and remains November once we enter into Season 5, all the way until Thanksgiving. I did my best at estimating the weeks of November, and how they might have played out so that it makes more sense, but in the end it is just a bunch of craziness! We must remember though, that in a world that allows a town like Ravenswood to exist, there has to be some bending of the rules. *Read the following article for a better (and humorous) description of the timeline issue in Rosewood:
November 2011(Week 1) - Mona is released from Radley & returns to Rosewood High (314).
November 2011(Week 1) - We meet Andrew Campbell for the first time (315).

November 2011(Week 1)- Jason, who suspects that Wilden is after him, runs off to Aunt Carol’s house thinking it is empty, since she died a few years back. When he arrives, he is surprsed to find his mother Jessica already there. She panics when she sees him and refuses to let him inside the house.

How do you think Slenderman's image has changed from 2009 to now? What do you think about the popularity of Slender-verse and creepypasta?
A Brief History of Slender Man
2009: Initial seeds planted. Intriguing character. Completely unknown. Mysterious and threatening. Massive horror appeal. Huge story potential.
Slender Man is a concept.
2010: More portrayals emerge. Even more threatening and mysterious. Theories fly wild and frequent. Forums buzz with life.
Slender Man is an underground icon.
2011: Peak of pre-Slender identity. Slender Man is limited mainly to vlogs/blogs/fanart. Still imposing and cosmically horrifying. The Slenderverse is born.
Slender Man is a fandom.
2012: Slender. Online press. Let’s Plays. The Internet finds him. He goes viral.
Slender Man is a cult following.
2013: Films. Parodies. Spin-offs. Jokes. He is a huge trend and a buzzword. The internet embraces him. The height of his popularity.
Slender Man is a meme.
2014: The stabbings, our fandom’s 9/11. 12 year old attempted murder. CNN. Global media coverage. Everyone knows his name. The unknown becomes known. Slender Man as a concept becomes hard to take seriously amidst nationally syndicated media pundit shit slinging. We are deeply embarrassed. The appeal wanes.
Slender Man is a tragedy.
2015: 12 year olds are to be tried as adults. Lives thrown away. Everyone’s sour and touchy about it.
Momentum slows to a halt as we stop to take a breath. The wound is still raw. The unknown mystery of Slender Man, the very thing that made him interesting in the first place, is so out there in the open… it’s hardly a mystery anymore. Interest fades.
Slender Man is washed out.
2016: Slender, who? Oh, you mean from that Xbox game? I love that meme! Really spooky. He likes collecting pages! $20!
Slender Man is a joke.
2017: Slender Man is brought into reality as a tulpa through our combined consciousness of being aware of his existence. He is extremely furious with our portrayals of him and begins to take down our armies. The Earth is finally his. It was his plan all along.
Slender Man is
