Roommates AU Part ½: Spencer and Emily live together and have a very agreeable arrangement between the two of them.
Summary: In Spencer’s eyes, they were good roommates. They didn’t bug or pester, they tried their best to communicate, and of course there was the matter of their sleeping together. That wasn’t going to blow up in their faces at all.
Author’s Note: The rating on this one is a littler higher than most of my fics. There’s no graphic sex scenes, as I basically do a literary fade-to-black, but there is some pretty explicit references to sex, and some heated scenes between Spencer and Emily. Just warning in case that’s not your thing.
Sorry Ezria fans but I wish Aria HAD filed that report. She may have been angry when she wrote it but was anything in there a lie? NOPE.
Side note: every time they FaceTime I think (hope) Aria has the twin and this is us “seeing” AD without actually seeing them. 🤔
Hanna has to shower and get off to that job she doesn’t have.
Let me get this straight: Caleb lives at The Radley, Hanna lives in Lucas’s place, and Lucas lives….???
Lmao considering most of the cold cases involve the Liars. I like how Spencer is so annoyed that Detective Furey wants to successfully do his job.😂
I’m happy we got Mary admitting she killed Jessica.
Mona is queen.
Is that a “yes” to having been pregnant Emily?
Is it weird that even though she’s going “dark”, for the first time, I’m liking Aria?!
I don’t like how after all Ezra has done we’re watching Aria feel like the guilty one. Plus, I’m sorry, but Ezra has done some messed up shit and Aria forgave him. If she can’t tell him about that file and have him forgive her (especially since he didn’t care when she killed Shana) then they def shouldn’t be together.
And yes I know it’s “great” Ezra finally fessed up to some of his crap but too little too late imo.
Spencer is a savage.
So Mary was in Radley after Jessica was killed? If patients can get in and out so easily why do they even bother going back? How did Wren, Aria, Mona, Spencer, etc. never run into her? When did she get out for good, or is she on a permanent escape?
Am I missing something but if Ashley runs The Radley where has she been since Hanna missed her so much?
Did Caleb seriously just describe Spencer as “a disaster ”? I seriously hate Marlene.
Who cares if your daughter may be a murderer when she’s engaged?!?
Hello dream sequence, I’ve been waiting for you!!!
Side note: is that really Janel Parish singing?🎤
Peter’s right. Spencer is so angry with him yet if she didn’t operate the same exact way as he does we wouldn’t have had a show for the last 7 seasons.
Agh my heart at Spencer calling Veronica “mom”. 😩
Omg is this the tent where Haleb first did it?
This ending had my mind going in a million different directions. Has Mona been the one FaceTiming Aria? I know we’re supposed to assume Mona is bad but I think she’s actually been doing all of this research, no not for a book a la Ezra, but to HELP the girls. What do you all think???? Thanks for reading!!!
Another episode full of no answers (and a random musical sequence? Wtf??). And another engagement (this show is basically fan service now lol).
I LOVE dark Aria. Even though she sucks at it. I really enjoy watching her do horrible things to her friends. She feels so guilty though. As she should! There must something really shocking on her file to make her do all this shit.
Wtf was that musical number??? That was the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen on this show. I couldn’t stop laughing! Haha wtf am I watching! Although it was good to see Ezra in prison with handcuffs on. He should have been arrested a long time ago! And Veronica calling Aria a ‘selfish little bitch’ was ICONIC! And Mona can sing! But that scene as so weird and random. Lol. What has this show become? We’re getting black and white musical numbers now instead of answers.
Aria should have turned Ezra in years ago. She stalked her and her friends to write a book! He knew how old Aria was when they met. He took advantage of her. I can’t believe they’re just forgetting about that. I have so many issues with Ezria. I hate how so much time is spent on engagement and weddings. What about answers???
We got a flashback of Mary, Jessica and Peter. So I do now believe that Mary killed her sister. Jessica and Peter were planning to kill her, so she killed Jessica out of self defense. Jessica was the crazy twin, not Mary (kind of like Ali and Courtney in the books).
Mary isn’t crazy. I do want Spencer to get to know her. Her birth mother is not the crazy person everyone tried to convince her she was. Spencer looked so relieved. I actually feel really bad for Mary.
The Haleb engagement. Did they seriously need to announce that there was going to be an engagement this episode?? Anyway. After the whole Spaleb mess I don’t give a shit about Haleb. Spencer confessed her love to Caleb, and he went off and cheated on her with Hanna. I’m sorry, but that is not okay. Now he’s acting like that never happened. I just don’t care about them. Although I’ll admit the tent scene was a nice throwback to S1. And seriously, now is not the time to become engaged!! You know, with A.D threatening you and everything. This show frustrates me so much.
I love Mona! I don’t think she’s A.D. They’re making it to obvious that she isn’t. She has some part of it though. I’m just not exactly sure at this point.
Overall, quite a boring episode. Detective Furey is getting close to figuring out the truth! But yeah, just a really boring episode with no answers. Seriously, there are 3 episodes left and we’re still getting episodes like this?? And they haven’t even mentioned Wren???? It was Spencer’s twin wasn’t it?? Right, another secret sibling is EXACTLY what this show needs.
I’m preparing myself to be disappointed. Because honestly, what more do I expect from this show?
I should have known. Everyone warned me. Sam, even Cas who hadn’t even met the girl yet had warned me she was trouble.To stay as far away from her as possible. Of course I didn’t listen, falling under her spell immediately, and now I can only blame myself.
As soon as I saw her, I became a different person. Someone needy, and desperate, willing to do anything to spend a second in her arms. To stare into those mesmerizing eyes of hers, pretending the problems of the world didn’t rest on my shoulders.
Recapping Season 7, Episode 17 of Pretty Little Liars. Aria walks further down her dark path, helping A.D. plant an audio bomb to tear apart the Hastings Family, and blowing off Ezra’s recent interest in their impending nuptials. Hanna gets a visit from Detective Marco, causing her to worry about what other evidence they might have missed, and her mom is getting suspicious too, so Caleb proposes to throw Ashley off the scent. Emily’s new girlfriend and babymama Ali has run off to NYC to see Jason, so she’s stuck helping Mona investigate, and being a total pill about it the whole time. And Spencer learns new details about her dad’s involvement in Jessica D’s murder, but refuses to believe her witch-mom Mary Drake is the one sewing discord.
I’m still extremely confused by the inclusion of that random prison nightmare musical number, although Janel did an absolutely fantastic job singing. Other than that, how to sum up this episode? Great, not only because Mona had a substantial role throughout this episode, but also because Alison was completely absent. I loved that in this episode, Hanna and Caleb are officially together again. Not only does Caleb reveal the extent of his feelings for Hanna to her mother, they also practically decide to married, in a scene that reminds us of their first time together in a tent. I’m so glad that they are back on track, because they were always the best couple on this show.
Living in Fear
Throughout this episode, Aria continues to live in fear, both of being outed as working for AD, and also of AD releasing the information on Ezra. This fear is epitomised through what I felt was a rather strange inclusion, the musical prison nightmare, in which Aria and Ezra wed in prison. Clearly this was simply a manifestation of Aria’s fears, although I’m still unsure as to why the writers felt this was the best way of depicting it. Either way, everything Aria now does is influenced by her inclusion in the AD team and her desperation to get her papers back, from dancing lessons in preparation for the wedding, to her reaction to Mona now being involved in the game. Unlike the other girls, when Hanna brings Mona along, Aria doesn’t contribute, instead, she seems more privately concerned by this development. After all, if anyone is likely to determine her new alliance, than it would be Mona. Aria is less concerned about a lack of trust in Mona than she is in Mona’s intelligence. Furthermore, towards the end of the episode when Aria obtains her papers hidden in the Brew, Mona is seen watching Aria carefully. This, combined with her rush to get away from Emily and into her apartment with to investigate, suggests that Mona is on to Aria. With very few episodes left, it’s likely that Mona will be the one to blow the lid off on Aria’s new alliance. Not only that, Aria’s fear is clearly affecting her relationship with Ezra. He can see that she is hiding something from him, that she has very little interest in their wedding preparations, and it’s no surprise that he thinks she must be rethinking their relationship.
Whilst the girls are not happy that Hanna is including Mona in on AD’s game, there’s no doubt in the audience’s mind that this is going to enable them to start to get to the bottom of the identity of their stalker. Mona is not just extremely intelligent; as the original A, she has a better chance than most at playing the game and winning. I personally am very much looking forward to her proving to this AD that no-one beats the original A. I also really enjoyed Mona and Emily working together in this episode; this will allow Mona to be brought into the fray and and accepted by the others. Again, we are able to witness Mona’s cunning in how she gets the required information out of the doctor. By comparison, Emily (and hence, the other girls) looks completely incompetent. That’s exactly what they are compared to Mona. They are incompetent and ill-prepared to handle everything they are being faced with. Mona doesn’t rush, she lets things take the time necessary to play out exactly how she intends them to, and this is something that the other girls could learn from her.
Of course, at the end of the episode, the writers try to persuade the audience into believing that Mona is part of the AD team; but this would be too obvious. It is much more likely that she is instead doing what Hanna had asked of her-trying to find a way to beat the game. Mona is not working against the girls, she is attempting to find out the identity of AD; she also protects Hanna by taking the shovels before someone else can, and thereby link them to the girls. I trust in Mona. After all, as Mona herself said, she is an accessory. So when Mona hurries into her apartment away from Emily, I believe it’s because she has work to do on the game-that’s why she took photos of the game in the first place.
Murder, She Wrote
One of the most disturbing aspects of this episode, and even the show as a whole, is how Peter Hastings and Jessica DiLaurentis conspired to murder Mary, who instead turned it on her sister. This is completely messed up, and I feel so much sympathy for Veronica for being caught in the middle of all of Peter’s mess. When Aria sends the tape on AD’s behalf, it is not long before Veronica reacts by deciding to step down from her new senate position. It’s heartbreaking, given how much she wanted it, and Spencer tries to convince her otherwise. But is it any wonder that Veronica would choose to give it up, knowing that someone out there is after her and her family, and could easily publicly ruin them. I’m glad that Spencer has gone back to calling Veronica her mother, as much as I feel sorry for Mary. I also love Mary’s reaction to this. Whilst Spencer is immediately concerned with how Mary will feel after calling Veronica her mother, Mary is clearly so understanding about it, but also upset that this is something she missed out on with Spencer. I am so here for Mary not wanting to drag Veronica into the mess with Peter and her sister, I hope eventually they can get on in some way in the future.
Look Who’s Stalking
Honestly I think Furey is going way too far with the stalking of Spencer and harassment of the other girls, particularly Hanna in this episode, in his obsession with closing this case. Yet again, the girls find themselves painted as villains by the Rosewood police, who refuse to ever accept the torturous events that they have all been through. These girls are never given any benefit of the doubt, and with all that was revealed when Charlotte was outed as AD, you would think that they might re-think how they approach the girls when suspicious events occur. Furey’s showing up at Hanna’s and questioning her and Caleb was weird, but not as creepy as his waiting outside of Spencer’s house for her to come out. Furey is approaching the kind of creepy territory that made us hate the rest of the Rosewood cops. I hated how Furey accused Spencer of deliberately seeking him out because she needed a cop in her corner. So I absolutely loved her response-that if he wants to talk to her it will be in his office under fluorescent lights and it won’t be her that it is embarrassed. I loved watching her stand up to him.
Walk with simplicity in the ways of the Lord and do not torment your spirit. You must hate your faults, but with a quiet hate, not troublesome or restless. We must be patient with them and gain from them through holy humility. Without that patience, instead of diminishing, your imperfections will increase constantly, as there that nourishes our defects like restlessness, and the haste to drive them away.
*relaxes on the couch, flipping through channels by pawing the remote* THE PROGRAMS ON THIS MOVING IMAGE BOX ARE ALL INSUFFERABLY INANE. I HOPE MY HUMANS RETURN HOME SOON. I DO NOT THINK I CAN TAKE MUCH MORE OF THIS BANALITY.
*flips to the local news*
Reports of a man in a cartoon wolf suit harassing and attacking random people have increased in the last week. Two men in the lower east side of the city claim to have been attacked by the man and they're saying that this wolf is nothing to bark at.
*cuts to an interview*

Someone Off Camera:
Yeah, it's rolling.
Drunk Man 1:

*cuts back to newscaster*
Uhm... many residents of the city have dubbed this furry attacker as the Third-Eyed Wolf. Currently, the Third-Eyed Wolf is still at large. Authorities are advising everyone to remain vigilante and *TV turns off*
THIRD-EYED WOLF? IMPOSSIBLE. AN IMPOSTOR. I HAVE TO VISIT THIS NEWS FACILITY AND MAKE THEM FIX THEIR ERROR.
*walks up to the apartment door, stares up at it and takes in how large it is* ...DARN. THIS TINY DOG'S BODY WILL DO ME NO GOOD.
*glances over at an open window* SALVATION.
*hops onto the windowsill, and hops out of the window, fall is cushioned by a garbage bag below*
*walks to the front of the apartment complex and spots a cyclist*
*walks in front of the cyclist's pathway*
*breaks* Whoa! I almost hit you, puppy. Aren't you cute!
*wan* *wan*! I AM NOT CUTE, HUMAN. YOUR FATHER WAS DISAPPOINTED IN YOU. YOUR WIFE IS UNFAITHFUL. YOUR LIFE IS A WASTE. ABANDON YOUR PEDDLING DEVICE AND WALK INTO TRAFFIC.
Guh, y-you're right. Nothing matters. *drops bike, walks into traffic*
*cars swerve trying to avoid the cyclist*
*hops onto the fallen bicycle* ...MY SMALL PUPPY BODY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO OPERATE THIS DEVICE.
*still walking through traffic, only narrowly avoiding being hit*
HUMAN, RETURN. YOUR MISERABLE LIFE HAS SOME WORTH YET. I AM IN NEED OF YOUR ASSISTANCE.
*turns to look at doggo* Huh? Me?
*gets hit by a truck*
*screams as she watches the cyclist get hit*
*wan* *wan*! EVERYONE CAN SEE THROUGH YOUR SHALLOW FEIGNED CONCERN. YOU'RE IMPRESSING NO ONE. YOUR LIFE IS AS EMPTY AS YOU THINK IT IS, AND EVERYONE KNOWS THAT. ANY AND ALL INTERACTIONS WITH YOU ARE ACTS OF PURE PITY.
*gets teary eyed* Really?
ABSOLUTELY. NOW MOUNT THIS PEDDLING DEVICE AND TRANSPORT ME TO THE NEWS FACILITY.
*sits on the ground* I don't think I want to. I just want to sit here and waste away.
YOU CAN DO THAT ON YOUR OWN TIME. NOW, I NEED YOUR HELP.
What help am I? You can find someone much better than me to help you. I never even learned to ride a bike. I just want to curl up and die.
...DARN. YOU GO WALK INTO TRAFFIC TOO THEN.
I don't want to. I don't even deserve to be smashed across a car's window like a fly. I just want to sit here until I starve.
YOU ARE BEING OVER DRAMATIC. PATHETIC. PERHAPS I AM TOO GOOD AT THIS.
*an ambulance shows up*
*EMTs rush out of the ambulance to tend to the cyclist*
Looks gruesome, jeez.
Hey there, little puppy! What are you doing in the street, bud? It's dangerous.
YOU HAVE A MASS GROWING IN YOUR BRAIN. IT IS TERMINAL. EVEN IF YOU GET SURGERY, YOU WILL DIE FROM IT. FURTHERMORE, YOUR DAUGHTER WON'T EVEN CARE MUCH ONCE YOU ARE GONE.
*sweats nervously* You can't possibly know that. I don't have a mass in brain.
YOU ARE RIGHT. I CANNOT POSSIBLY KNOW. HOWEVER, I DO KNOW WHAT IS ON YOUR MIND. THE MIGRAINES, THE LIGHTHEADEDNESS, IT BOTHERS YOU. DID YOU KNOW THAT MOST PEOPLE WHO SUFFER FROM THOSE SYMPTOMS HAVE TERMINAL CANCER? ALSO, YOUR DAUGHTER'S ALOOFNESS IS NOT JUST A "TEENAGER THING". SHE HATES YOU. THE RESULT OF BAD PARENTING. SHE SHOULD HAVE STAYED WITH HER MOTHER. DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO YOUR FRIENDS OVER THERE.
ON THE OTHER HAND, DO NOT. I NEED YOUR ASSISTANCE. DRIVE ME TO THE NEWS FACILITY. THEN RUN PEOPLE OVER.
Ok so we were supposed to help organize uniforms for marching band today but Pokemon Go came out so everyone bailed. As me and my friend were walking around, we decided to take a break and head to school to help out. Our band director was there and came out of his office, and was like “what’s up guys” we explained that Pokemon Go came out, and he’s like “Yeah Mrs Hastings was out driving around because it came out” (Mrs Hastings is our assistant director) and as he was saying that, some Pokemon appeared in the band room. He then also decided to get Pokemon Go.
Ronan was driving well over the speed limit as usual, but he had toned down his reckless driving a bit given that Adam was in the car beside him. He was in no way driving safely or following any traffic laws, but at least he was making an effort. School had just gotten out and he and Adam were headed to Monmouth, Gansey in his own car headed to meet them there. Although by the way Ronan was driving, they were going to make it there long before Gansey did. He was slowing down as they neared and was about to pull in to park, but visibly hesitated as he saw an all too familiar car in the lot. He was sure the shock and fear was evident on his face, he only hoped Adam didn’t put two and two together. If Kavinsky was here to see him, there was no way in hell he was going inside. He quickly did a very illegal U-turn, tires squealing and running over the curb in his haste, all thoughts of driving somewhat safely out the window. “Change of plans. I’m going home.” He told Adam, going much faster than he had been before, flying around a corner and just barely missing a car parked on the side of the road.
