clearnightmaregardener  asked:

I read Marion Cavanaugh's obituary. Did you know she was a nurse to pediatrician? I wonder if she was somehow connected to the adoptions of babies from Radley. I'm doubting Charlotte's story that it was Bethenny who pushed Marion from the roof.

It could be. Wouldn’t it be an interesting story to find out it was Mary who pushed Marion?

for anyone else who wants to read the obituary:

The passing of Marion Cavanaugh is a great loss for many in Rosewood. She left us too soon, off to some new adventures, something the rest of us could not see. Although she was not a rich woman, not famous… She was Mom and Friend and Marion. She was a kind soul and a bright spirit. She will be surely missed.

A life long resident of Rosewood, Pennsylvania, Marion Cavanaugh was beloved by many. Having grown up in the small community, she had forged a lifetime of friends and touched many lives.

After attending Rosewood High, Marion went on to Nursing School at Hollis College and graduated as an LVN. She soon took a full-time job working for local Pediatrician, Dr. Laura Sylvester. Marion loved her work and would regularly express how fortunate she felt to have found a job where she could help children become the healthy, successful people they would become.

In her private time, Marion loved the outdoors. Hiking and camping were passions of hers in her younger years and even when the pressures of live prevented the exclusive trips she never took, she would make a point to get into the local wilderness as much as possible. Bird-watching became a hobby and she would spend hours cataloging her sightings.

Marion is survived by her husband, Daniel, and son, Toby.

but also as a side note, this is a super long obituary, is it not? Like it could just be different here but obituaries here in my city are relatively short. “Although she was not a rich woman, not famous….” is such an odd thing to write in an obit >.<

Knocker Knocker

After a late night, Marion is walking back to Ravenclaw tower, and notices a distraught first year boy pulling his hair out on the floor near the eagle knocker.

The knocker notices her approach.

Knocker: Why is a raven like a writing desk?

Marion: Seriously? It’s midnight. He’s a first year. Come on.

Knocker: Why is a raven like a writing desk?

Marion: *a bit miffed* Okay.

Marion: True answer, they’re both flat. Oh, and you should never try to stick either up your ass.

Momentary silence.

Marion: Savvy?

The door to the tower creaks open without another word from the knocker.

6th year Ravenclaw Marion is online!

PLL FIGURED OUT AGAIN

Okay so i blogged this before but in-light of recent events i need to update it (http://ishouldreallydosomethingabout-a.tumblr.com/post/103665815424/pll-figured-out) and I didn’t want to ruin the other one because that maybe right… 

Okay so, it has been confirmed that there are a set of twins in PLL, I think these twins are Mrs Dilaurentis and Mrs Cavanaugh…look how similar they look!

In the story Ali tells on Halloween about the two little girls, she is telling the story of her mum and Marion Cavanaugh.

Obviously Marion Cavanaugh survived but I think that’s why she drinks and acts so depressed when she is older because she is really damaged by her psyco sister, Mrs Dilaurentis.

Remember how creepy Mrs D was in that episode where she snuck into Spencers room! She’s crazy and should be locked in Radley, but instead her sister got put in because Mrs D convinced everyone Marion was the crazy one (like how Alison and Courtney get mixed up in the books)

That’s why Mrs D was on the board at Radley, so she could keep an eye on her sister.

Next, onto Bethany Young who I think is Mrs Cavanaughs daughter, that’s why Mrs D wanted Bethany to call her Auntie Jessie! because she literally is her aunt! It would also explain the two yellow dresses Ali found as a kid

Mrs D brought one for her niece as well as her daughter, but i’m betting she never told her husband about her crazy family so she hid them

EDIT: thanks to http://she-knows-too-much-a.tumblr.com/ for the image and can i just say i love how they wrapped the baby in a yellow blanket, but anyway, firstly i think its possible this baby is Bethany- yellow is her favourite colour, the filmer could be Marion? and i think the boys are Toby and Jason. Mrs D only tells one of them to kiss their sister which makes me think only one of them is her brother, we all know Jason is 7 years older than Ali and in this picture the boys cant be more than 4/5 which makes it impossible.

I think the reasons she is called Bethany Young are:

  1. Because, like in the books, everyone in Rosewood is conscious of their image and Mrs D didn’t want anyone finding out Bethany was mentally ill (mental illness can run in families, she probably didn’t want anyone getting suspicious)
  2. As Mrs D was on the board of Radley she admitted Bethany under a fake name so she could keep an eye on her too, also maybe family members couldn’t both be together if they shared the same illness.

I think her real name may be Christine because on the visitors list to the blind school we see someone called Chris Cavanaugh, after all Jenna would be her half sister

EDIT: this is such an amaing pick up by http://plliarsanonymous.tumblr.com/ when Jenna is moving in with Toby the box on the top left says ‘Jenna and Bethanys room’!!!!!!!!

 and again on the dental patient records we see C. Cavanaugh

EDIT: omg i just realised this but C.Cavanaugh/Chirs, these names are so similar to Charles!!!! Bethany is Charles.

This would also make her Toby’s sister/ half sister, we all know Bethany drew creepy pictures of demons, well according to prettylittlesecretsinthewoods, in season 1 episode 5, Toby is also drawing pictures of demons…

This could be a serious clue as to their connection! Also I just read that apparently Marlene posted a picture of a boy and posted brother

I googled it and i’m not sure if this is it but I think so, anyway I know Toby isn’t black but he’s the only character who really wears those checked shirts and I they cant make it too obvious, and the doll behind looks like a boy but if they were both boys then wouldn’t Marlene have written Brothers? Maybe she just has her hair tied up or short hair? Also the general idea is that Bethany has some sort of deformity and the blonde doll is missing a finger!

EDIT: i knew that blonde doll was a girl!!! these pictures are from the finale

this picture was in Arias fake room

this is from -A’s lair/vault, theyre the same dolls!!!!

Once Marion was put in Radley again, Mrs D stopped her from being able to see her son, Toby, maybe because she thought she was an unfit mother, or maybe because as the twin story goes they resented each-other so Jessica Dilaurentis wanted to punish her sister. In S04E04, Toby talks to Marion’s old doctor. He said “She hated being away from you, but there were forces that were just too much for her” the forces being Mrs D

In the first picture Bethany draws a demon stealing a boy, I think Bethany drew this as a depiction of Mrs D (the demon) keeping Toby (the boy) from Marion Cavanaugh (the woman in the dress running after them).

The second is Mrs Cavanaugh falling from the roof at Radley, you can see the woman is wearing the same dress as in the first picture, Mrs D and Marion had a fight, probably about Mrs D not letting Marion see Toby, and Mrs D, being crazy, pushed Marion out of the window, she claimed it was suicide but Bethany saw it, which is why she hated her and drew this…it would make sense as Jessica D lied about the suicide…

Mrs D tried to apologise to Bethany by being kind to her and buying her a pony but Bethany wanted to hurt Mrs D like Mrs D hurt her.

So Bethany becomes the first -A (she dosent actually use the -A thing yet) and begins to send Ali creepy dolls/ messages like “its my turn to torture you”,

We all used to think that it was someone that Ali used to be mean to but I think its like Bethany saying, your mum tortured my family so now i’m going to torture you. From Bethanys picture of Mrs D watering the roses

it shows Bethany knew what the Dilaurentis house looked like, (look at the porch area! its exactly the same!) I think Bethany drew herself as the monster because she is going to become Mrs D’s demon.

She knew because she had been spying on them (Mrs D definitely wouldn’t risk taking Bethany to Rosewood, she knew how dangerous that could be) then on Halloween, Bethany escapes to torture Ali some more…

We see a Radley car outside the old house where Ali leads the girls to ‘test’ them. I think Bethany stole the car in order to escape Radley because she knew what was going to happen that night so she hid in the house to wait for Ali. I think she dressed as that creepy doll, you can see the person is wearing gloves, Bethany could have dressed as a caretaker or janitor to get out of Radley un-suspected because you can see that they just have a black top on and not the matching costume. Then she scares Ali in the Halloween costume shop, after sending her the “im watching you” message to let Ali know things are getting serious. Then later, she attacks Ali in the house when Ali thinks its Noel, and sends her the last message of that night, “dying to know who I am? You’ll find out soon” and starts the whole -A thing, to show she is dangerous.

Which brings us to the night Ali went missing, according to Ali we see Mrs D on the phone she is looking out the window really worried and she says “how could this happen” “I don’t understand”

I think that she’s on the phone with Radley, they are calling her to tell her that Bethany has escaped, that’s why she tells Ali “I do not want you going out tonight” she’s scared that something will happen to her. The phone rings for a second time and she asks if there is any news and says she is worried at tells them to send someone, like send a search party.

Ali gets really scared about -A after she gets the message saying that she is going to die on that night,

Although Alison didn’t remember I think somehow Bethany knew about the two yellow dresses, its clear from the lipstick on the mirror that Bethany was in Alis room so why couldn’t she have planted the top there too?

Bethany forged a letter from Alis mum to make sure Ali wore the yellow top. In this recent episode in the recording of Bethany Young she says “She’s not the only one who can make plans” I don’t think this evil bitch Bethany keeps referring to is Alison, I think its Mrs D, after all Mrs D did murder her mum, Bethany then made her own plans to make Mrs D suffer.

Then, as she told the girls she went round trying to figure out who it was before it was too late. However, she changed the ending, we all know ali bases her lies on the truth, so here is what really happened, credit to SpencersBarn.Tumblr for the upcoming images…

After Ali and Spencer have the argument Spencer goes home, leaving the shovel in-between the Dilaurentis and Hastings houses

We all know Cece was dressed the same as ali that night, as jason saw her, I think Cece is a double agent, she is pretending to be friends with Alison but is actually working with Bethany, keep your friends close but your enemies closer right! Also, after all the people who have told the girls how much Cece hated them and Alison and blamed them for her getting kicked out of UPEN why would she be BFF’s with Ali? Also we all know Cece went to Radley dressed as Alison, my bet is Bethany mistook Cece for Alison and when crazy on her, Cece explained she wasn’t Ali but hated her too and Viola! An alliance is formed. 

So anyway, Cece dressed the same to confuse Ali and distract her 

Ali is looking at cece confused then…

Bethany thought she killed Alison and left her body there to be found by Mrs D

But, Melissa finds Ali and after seeing Spencer go after her with a shovel buries her to protect Spencer.

Using her powers Mrs Grunwald knew something was wrong,

Alison leaves the car because she was scared she would be vulnerable in hospital

This is where Ali lied about Mona finding her, you can see that she isn’t walking down a random road its her own drive. 

Mrs D is happy because she thinks she has found Bethany, but actually Bethany lured Sarah Harvey to Rosewood that night encase her plan went wrong.

Furious, Alison lifts the shovel

and hit Sarah in the head

Ali is still standing after the shot of a blonde (Sarah) falling to the ground…

Mrs D is shocked that her daughter was capable of that

but…

once ali falls, mrs d becomes distraught

Then trying to protect her daughter

Mrs D then burries Sara thinking it was Bethany while asking ali, “what did you do” and helps ali run away. I think it was then that Mrs D told Alison about the whole Bethany thing, that’s why when Alison was telling the girls her version of the nights events she said “A made it clear if she wanted to kill me she could”, so Alison knew Bethany was the first -A but thought she was dead which is why she never knew who the -A after Mona was. Who else would Mrs D be protecting than her own daughter. Also in the episode -A is for answers the girls tell Ali they think her mum stole the game from Mona, and then comment on how she isn’t surprised, Ali may have thought her mum stole the game in order to protect her.

That’s why when Holbrook came to Mrs D telling her “Mrs Dilaurentis "were not certain your daughters in that grave” she acts so shady, because she knows its not! Normally if a mother who has lost a child finds out that there is a chance that they are alive they would be so happy but Mrs D just says “well I am” Also, we all know Mrs D never did a proper identification of the body she said the yellow top was enough, it’s because she felt so guilty for murdering someone.

However, Mrs D saw Spencer go after Ali with a shovel, and realised that she could protect herself and Ali by going to Mr Hastings. Mr Hastings didn’t want Jessica going to the police and ruining his daughters life (he had some dirt on Jessica so blackmailed her into silence…maybe he knew about Marion?) which, unbeknown to Peter Hastings, worked on Jessicas behalf too. That’s why Peter says to Mrs D “the police are still asking pointed questions about Spencer, do we still have an understanding?”

But then Melissa tells her dad she was the one who actually killed Bethany Young (or so she thought, she actually only buried Ali who survived), so Peter tells her to run away, hence Melissa going to London. 

When Alison returned Bethany, not realising Alison already knew about her had to kill Mrs D to stop her spilling about Bethany. Maybe Mrs D had worked out she was alive, that’s what the email was about.

The girls are -A free for a year, which Bethany used to get surgery to fix her deformity, change her hair and become…LESLEY! Listen to the most recent recording of Bethany from Radley, they sound exactly the same! That’s why Lesley wanted the book from Mona’s room because she knew it contained the tape and she couldn’t have anyone finding it, but because Mike made such a big scene Hanna followed Lesley around and made sure she put the book back, so Lesley had no time to look for the tape. That was the relevance of Hanna’s flashback that episode, it’s not Alison who changed so noone would notice her, its Bethany, she changed her hair and wore glasses and called herself Lesley so she could secretly spy on everyone! Until they find Sarah’s body, Bethany realises she has to make it look like Sarah is her so she she corrupts the files, by making it look like she is dead so noone is looking for her or suspects her, and she is free from Radley, she then goes about recruiting all of Alison’s victims because they are easy targets, however she remains anonymous to them. She befriends Mona that summer as Lesley (Mona dosen’t know she is Uber -A). Then Maya moves into the Dilaurentis house and finds Ali’s diaries while clearing out, then Alison goes back looking for her diaries, she cant have them falling into the wrong hands (Spencer sees Ali from her window the Pilot) But Maya sees Ali, she finds out so much that she has to run away “MAYA KNEW” Alison was alive. Maya then worked for Alison. analyzinga realised that the bag Ali took with her when she ran away was at the Khans cabin around the time Maya was there I think she met Alison.

I think that’s why -A gives flowers at Bethanys funeral because she feels bad for her family pretending she is dead.

EDIT: So, alot of you are saying that this cant be true because Marlene said Mona was the first -A, which is true. We all know Marlene likes to say things that are the truth with out actually being the truth if that makes sense. I think, Mona was the first -A, as in she was bethanys first fall girl, Bethany used Mona as her helper, then when she realised the girls were getting too close made Mona take the fall so noone would find out. From this last episode the melody lingers on 5x23 Aria has an interesting conversation with Andrew who says “the only thing Mona likes better than winning is taking the credit.”. (I think Andrew could be on the -A team too and hes talking about how Mona took credit for some of his doings) Later that episode Spencer says “-A knew this quality about me and used it against me” what if -A/ Bethany did the same thing to Mona? Marlene likes to refer to the -A now as Uber A, which she has never used to describe Mona, she just used -A!

answered vs. unanswered

i didn’t want to post every list over again bc a lot of questions for certain characters weren’t answered

shana:

what did shana do at the lodge fire? did she really light it? yes. it is unknown where shana went after lighting the fire

was it really shana on the roof in new york? according to marlene through an interview, yes

maya:

who killed maya? was it really nate? according to the writers through twitter, yes

what did maya know? (’maya knew’) according to marlene through twitter, that nate was in rosewood

melissa:

what did melissa and cece talk about ‘that night?’ cece confirmed this was not her, that it was either bethany or ali jason saw melissa talking to

wilden:

what was wilden’s role in ‘that night?’ jenna has told emily that he was there, and melissa called someone that implied it to be him, but we haven’t seen any flashbacks to back this up with. why? wilden drove cece back to radley ‘that night,’ and covered up cece being there for jessica. we don’t know how jenna knew he was there, or if it was him mel was on the phone with

mona:

who were the blondes in mona’s house the day she was kidnapped? who picked the lock? who climbed the stairs? who entered the bedroom? who was the one in the video? according to marlene in an interview, cece kidnapped mona. from the finale, we could gather cece also drugged mona. if there were two people, then sara was also there

did mona have a part in what happened to beth? mona hit bethany thinking beth was ali

in 3.24 mona tells the liars that ali pulled her out, that ali pulled them all out, and that mona saw her. in 4.24, ali says that she only pulled out hanna. which one is it? mona saw sara pull them out, but sara was dressed in a red coat with an ali mask and mona mistook her for ali

why wasn’t mona laying unconscious on the ground with the other liars at the lodge fire? why did she come running from the direction of in the lodge? did she not pass out? did she wake up on her own? according to an interview with marlene, mona was pulled out alongside emily and aria. she likely came to while sara was pulling her out - like hanna w/ ali - and ran back towards the lodge afterwards

who was mona talking to at the lodge in 3.24? she tells them that they’re finally going to get what they wanted, that ’it’s going to end.’ what did they want? what was going to end? was this ali or A? this was cece. cece wanted to end the game and kill the liars, before she learned ali was alive

in the QOH video shown in 4.01, wilden makes it sound like garrett wanting to talk to spencer was unplanned, and to ’just leave her [aria?]’ was it always in the main plan for garrett to be killed? or did he show up unannounced? if it wasn’t planned, and A didn’t know garrett would be there, then who were the bullets for that mona gave A at the beginning of 3.13? according to an interview with marlene, wilden was acting on his own in killing garrett

how did mona know to pick ali up on the side of the road 'that night?’ did mona know ali would be targeted? was it just by chance mona came across ali? how would mona have known ali was rescued? mona hit bethany thinking she was ali. mona was already in ali’s backyard. mona didn’t know ali had been buried alive and presumably just thought that ali had the head wound from mona hitting her

is mona with or against the liars? between the liars and cece, mona is with the liars

what happened to mona when she was kidnapped, who drugged her? who’s car trunk was she put in? did emily ever find the mona doll in her nativity scene? cece drugged mona and kidnapped her

how did mona know hanna and the liars were getting texts again in 3.02? who was keeping mona informed and in the loop while she was in radley? cece, as cece stole the game from mona

SO A-FREAKING-PPARENTLY, SINCE MARION DIED WHEN CECE WAS LIKE 10, ALISON AND TOBY WERE TODDLERS DURING THIS SCENE. A TODDLER ALISON TOLD TODDLER TOBY, “I KNOW YOU WANT TO KISS ME” IN SEDUCTIVE TODDLER ENGLISH.

Encounters with Rose on the Hogwarts Express: Sixth Year

“Oh, she’s running late,” James said. “Hugo forgot something and then they hit some kind of traffic. Need help with your trunk?”

Scorpius swallowed. A feeling of intense, uncomfortable anticipation was spreading through him, and he tried to ignore the pit in his stomach as his parents pulled into a parking spot at King’s Cross station. It seemed almost incredible that at this point the year before, he’d been trying (without much success) to pretend that he didn’t find Rose Weasley attractive in the least, when now he’d been going out with her for almost a year.

“Scorpius?”

He looked up, and realized that both of his parents had gotten out of the car. He grabbed the owl cage next to him and flung open the car door. Ptolemy gave a shriek of protest at the sudden noise, and Scorpius winced. “Sorry. I was thinking.”

“Do you do that?” his mother asked in a faint tone of surprise. “I must be misremembering your fails on your O.W.L.s.”

PLL FIGURED OUT!!

Okay so, here goes. its kinda long but please read it, it took me ages 

Okay so, it has been confirmed that there are a set of twins in PLL, I think these twins are Mrs Dilaurentis and Mrs Cavanaugh…look how similar they look!

In the story ali tells on halloween about the two little girls, she is telling the story of her mum and Marion Cavanaugh 

Obviously Marion Cavanaugh survived but I think thats why she drinks and acts so depressed when she is older because she is really damaged by her psyco sister, Mrs Dilaurentis.

Remember how creepy Mrs D was in that episode where she snuck into spencers room! shes crazy and should be locked in radley, but instead her sister got put in because Mrs D convinced everyone Marion was the crazy one (like how ali and Courtney get mixed up in the books)

Thats why Mrs D was on the board at Radley, so she could keep an eye on her sister.

Next, onto Bethany Young who I think is Mrs Cavanaughs daughter, that’s why Mrs D wanted Bethany to call her auntie Jessie! because she literally is her aunt!

I think the reasons she is called Bethany Young are:

  1. because like in the books everyone is conscious of their image in rosewood and they didnt want anyone finding out bethany was mentally ill (mental illness can run in families) 
  2. As Mrs D was on the board of Radley she admitted her under a different name so she could keep an eye on her too, probably family members couldnt both be together if they shared the same illness 

I think her real name may be Christine because on the visitors list to the blind school we see someone called Chris Cavanaugh, after all Jenna would be her half sister and again on the dental patient records we see C. Cavanaugh 

This would also make her Toby’s sister/ half sister, we all know Bethany drew creepy pictures of demons, well according to prettylittlesecretsinthewoods, in season 1 episode 5, Toby is also drawing pictures of demons…

This could be a serious clue as to their connection!

Once Marion was put in Radley again, Mrs D stopped her from being able to see her son, Toby, maybe because she thought she was an unfit mother, or maybe because as the twin story goes they resented each-other so Jessica Dilaurentis wanted to punish her sister. In S04E04, Toby talks to Marion’s old doctor. He said “She hated being away from you, but there were forces that were just too much for her” the forces being Mrs D 

In the first picture Bethany draws a demon stealing a boy, I think Bethany drew this as a depiction of Mrs D (the demon) keeping Toby (the boy) from Marion Cavanaugh (the woman in the dress running after them).

The second is Mrs Cavanaugh falling from the roof at Radley, you can see the woman is wearing the same dress as in the first picture, Mrs D and Marion had a fight, probably about Mrs D not letting Marion see Toby, and Mrs D, being crazy, pushed Marion out of the window, she claimed it was suicide but Bethany saw it, which is why she hated her and drew this…it would make sense as Jessica D lied about the suicide… 

Mrs D tried to apologise to Bethany by being kind to her and buying her a pony but Bethany wanted to hurt Mrs D like Mrs D hurt her.

So Bethany becomes the first -A (she dosent actually use the -A thing yet) and begins to send Ali creepy dolls/ messages like “its my turn to torture you”,

we all used to think that it was someone that ali used to be mean to but i think its like bethany saying, your mum tortured my family so now im going to torture you. From bethanys picture of Mrs D watering the roses

it shows Bethany knew what the dilaurentis house looked like, (look at the porch area! its exactly the same!)

She knew because she had been spying on them (Mrs D definitely wouldn’t risk taking her home, she knew how dangerous that could be) then on halloween, Bethany escapes to torture ali some more…

we see a radley car outside the old house where ali leads the girls to ‘test’ them. i think bethany stole the car in order to escape Radley because she knew what was going to happen that night so she hid in the house to wait for ali. I think she dressed as that creepy doll, you can see the person is wearing gloves, bethany could have dressed as a caretaker or janitor to get out of radley unsuspected because you can see that they just have a black top on and not the matching costume.

Then later, she attacks ali in the house when ali thinks its Noel, and sends her the last message of that night, “dying to know who i am? You’ll find out soon” and starts the whole -A thing, to show she is dangerous.

Which brings us to the night ali went missing, according to ali we see Mrs D on the phone she is looking out the window really worried and she says “how could this happen” “i dont understand”

i think that shes on the phone with radley, they are calling her to tell her that Bethany has escaped, thats why she tells ali “i do not want you going out tonight” shes scared that something will happen to her. the phone rings for a second time and she asks if there is any news and says she is worried at tells them to send someone, like send a search party.

Ali gets really scared about -A after she gets the message saying that she is going to die on that night,

So, as she told the girls she went round trying to figure out who it was before it was too late. However, she changed the ending, we all know ali bases her lies on the truth, so here is what really happened, most credit goes to SpencersBarn.Tumblr for this part

After ali and spencer have the argument spencer goes home, leaving the shovel inbetween the dilaurentis and hastings houses

We all know cece was dressed the same as ali that night, as jason saw her 

Ali is looking at cece confused then…

bethany thought she killed alison and left her body there to be found by Mrs D

But, Melissa finds ali and after seeing Spencer go after her with a shovel buries her to protect Spencer.

using her powers mrs grunwald knew something was wrong 

Alison leaves the car because shes scared she would be vulnerable in hospital

this is where ali lied about mona finding her, you can see that she isnt walking down a random road its her own drive.

Mrs D is happy to have found Bethany  

Furious, alison lifts the shovel

and hit bethany in the head

Ali is still standing after the shot of a blonde (bethany) falling to the ground…

Mrs D is shocked that her daughter was capable of that 

but…

once ali falls, mrs d becomes distraught


Then trying to protect her daughter 

Mrs D then burries bethany while asking ali, “what did you do” and helps ali run away. 

Thats why when holbrook came to mrs d telling her “Mrs Dilaurentis "were not certain your daughters in that grave” she acts so shady, because she knows its not! Normally if a mother who has lost a child finds out that there is a chance that they are alive they would be so happy but mrs d just says “well i am”

However, Mrs D saw Spencer go after ali with a shovel, and realised that she could protect herself and ali by going to Mr Hastings. Mr Hastings didnt want Jessica going to the police and ruining his daughters life (he had some dirt on jessica so blackmailed her into silence…maybe he knew about marion?) which, unbeknown to peter hastings, worked on jessicas behalf too. thats why Peter says to Mrs D “the police are still asking pointed questions about spencer, do we still have an understanding?”

But then melissa tells her dad she was the one who actually killed bethany young (or so she thought, she actually only buried ali who survived), so peter tells her to run away, hence melissa going to london. Then when alison came back, he knew the integrity to their 'understanding’ was comprimised- he still thought his daughters murdered bethany, so he had to kill Mrs D to stop her telling ali because he knew what alison was like…

The girls are -A free for a year until they find bethanys body, this is when Mona finds alis diary and takes over as -A, i think mona and Bethany were friends which is why Mona knew how to escape from Radley because she learnt from Bethany, 

i think thats why -A gives flowers at bethanys funeral because she knew her 


EDIT: UPDATED THEORY HERE—-> http://ishouldreallydosomethingabout-a.tumblr.com/post/110105945034/pll-figured-out-again

anonymous asked:

Prompt: Marion tries to separate Roland from his beloved monkey toy (bad reaction). Could also involve her telling him terrible stories of the evil queen and upsetting him and robin, pushing them to regina :)

Saying it had been a hard week would be an understatement.

Food was forgotten.

Sleep held no peace when your mind was plagued by nightmares and fears. 

Work was impossible.

At this point Regina wasn’t even sure she was in her usual skirt and blouse. For all she knew she was still in her silk pajamas she’d worn the night before. And she couldn’t have cared less.

What was the point of trying to hold it together when her world was so obviously starting to fall apart piece by piece? What did it matter if she put on an unaffected front when everyone was just going to gossip about her anyway?

“Another coffee?” Granny asked. She almost sounded sympathetic. 

“Or are you just going to sit there and wallow in self pity like a teenage girl?

Never mind.

Regina sent Granny a glare, too exhausted to turn the older lady into a toad or some other pitiful creature.

"Not that I have to explain myself to you,” Regina mumbled. “But it’s been a rough night.”

"That doesn’t answer my question. Coffee or not?”

“Do you-”

Regina’s words are cut off by a blood curdling scream. She pivots out of her seat, hands lit with a glowing orb of magic. She looks around, her chest heaving in a panic. 

Roland!

“Marion!” Robin cries from the other end of the diner.

“Give it back! Give it back!” Roland screams, pounding his small fists on the table, rattling the cups and plates. Big fat crocodile tears role down his cheeks and his face has gone red. 

“‘Gina gave it to me!” the small boy yells. He holds his arms out for the stuffed monkey that Marion is dangling in the air out of his reach with two fingers. Her face is scrunched as if she’s disgusted.

"Why did the Evil Queen give this to you?” Marion demands. 

Marion,” Robin warns, his voice low, almost a growl. Protective. 

His eyes shift to meet Regina’s and the magic in her hands slowly flickers till it’s gone. Her shoulders slouch forward. 

“She saved his life.”

Marion scoffs. “Save a life? She’d never.”

“I just spared yours,” Regina snaps. 

For the first time Marion notices Regina standing at the counter. A small shiver visibly runs over her spine and Regina finds confidence in that. She stands up straighter, shoulders back, hair behind her ears and eye’s cold. A small smirk plays at the corners of her lips as she clasps her hands in front of her stomach. 

She wont hurt her, she’s not that person anymore. But what’s the harm in playing the part of powerful Queen?

Regina swirls her hand as she walks and the monkey appears in her hands. She smiles as she crouches down next to the booth where Roland and Robin are eating their breakfast. She holds the monkey out to Roland. He quickly takes it and hugs it to his chest, burying his face in the fuzzy fur of the stuffed animal. 

“All better?” Regina asks. 

Roland nods his head with a shy smile. 

“Good.” She ruffles his hair as she stands. 

Marion steps forward, defiance shining in her eyes as she moves to block Roland. Regina scoffs.

“Save it,” she snarls. “I’m not going to give him a toy, then take it from him. I’m not completely heartless.”

“No, but hundreds of people are thanks to you,” Marion counters. “Why should I trust you?”

“I trust her,” Robin states, firmly. 

Regina’s eyes meet his and time seems to stop. 

One second. Two heartbeats. Three seconds.

Where do we stand?

The question hangs between the two along with a thousand others. There’s distance between them now from it and seems too hard to push forward. 

He’s your soulmate,” Tink had told her. 

But their timing had always been off. She’d been too scared. He’d married Marion and had a son. She enacted the curse that brought them here for the first time. 

Just so many things had blocked them from finally being together.

And now Emma had brought back Marion. 

Were his feelings now altered? Did he even care about their relationship now that Marion was back?

The answer scared her. The feeling of being rejected would be too much. She could handle being rejected from most of the town. They already had done it multiple times. 

But if Robin rejected her…

Regina sucked in a sharp breath, shaking herself back into the present. She could feel the threat of tears burning the back of her eyes. 

So she leaves. 

Walls up, scowl on.

I really love Merrill but there are some things about her romance that i don't like. She is constantly infantilized, both by characters and the narrative. Her inexperience with people are supposed to be because she is from a different culture but it doesn't always feel like it. She ends up looking like a character who is in constant need of direction and help (which she doesn't but it comes off that way) and that creates a power imbalance in a relationship which kinda makes me uncomfortable.

Okay so keep in mind that I’ve never done her romance and I’ve only watched clips of it but

Merrill does have self-esteem issues though, regardless of the fact that she’s romanced or not. She didn’t seem to form any close relationships within her clan - she was always apart the others, because she was meant to become a Keeper. She was meant to help her people find their history and lore again, and that weighted heavy on her shoulders to the point where the only worth she sees in herself is through this, through her role as a Keeper, through claiming back her people’s lost history.

But at the same time, she’s terrified of not living up to the expectations placed on her. She tells Hawke she would have made a terrible Keeper, because she doesn’t know her clan, she doesn’t know its people, and she cannot imagine leading them. The only way she would feel worthy of being a Keeper, of being part of the clan, is to restore the eluvian. That’s why she started the whole thing, and if she dies on the way, at least she would die in a meaningful way, in trying to accomplish something for her people. She’s both trying to prove herself - to others and to herself.

Merrill doesn’t believe anyone can love her if she doesn’t accomplish some great miracle, if she doesn’t prove she’s worthy of love by proving she can be useful and help her people. And this is reflected in her romance.

The point of my post was that Merrill isn’t innocent. She isn’t naive, either. She’s also not the only LI in DA2 who’s got self-esteem issues - see Isabela. She seeks Hawke out. She has feelings for Hawke if a romance is pursued, she even goes to their house to ask if Hawke feels the same. This is something Merrill wants. And yeah, she might needs reassurances and little nudges, but so do every other LIs? So to rob her of her agency by denying her a romance that she *chooses* to pursue bothers me a lot.

I feel like fandom infantilizes Merrill way much more than the game actually does, tbqh.

I saw a blog here on Tumblr some time ago about the possibility that Flemeth might have been the inspiration for the prophet Andraste, and that the "Maker" she apparently communed with was the demon from the tale of Flemeth (as told by Leliana/Morrigan). That got me thinking. One of the lines in the trailer for DAI is that "faith lies in ashes". Do you think that this, coupled with Flemeth's revival in DA2, could mean that her identity as Andraste will be revealed to the people and cause chaos?

Oooh I’ve never seen that kind of speculation around before, but I don’t necessarily agree that Flemeth is Andraste. I’m actually digging this theory a whole lot more…

I think Flemeth is definitely more than what she lets people think she is, but as to what she really is, I have no idea. She’s definitely affiliated to the Old Gods - either she’s one herself or she’s the reincarnation of the soul of an Old God following the same ritual Morrigan offers the Warden. Which might explain why she’s aware of such a ritual in the first place.

As for Andraste, she was a mage, the Maker is probably a demon, and she might herself be an OGB. But again, I’m really not digging the Andraste = Flemeth theory.

How does Anora feel when she is pregnant ? Like how does she act and what does Bran do to help her thru it ?

I’ve always headcanon Anora working as much as is humanly possible even when being pregnant, and quite far along in her pregnancy. People keep telling her to take it easy, but she steadfastly refuses to let herself be put aside because of it - especially the first time she bears a child. She’s determined to keep going and prove to everyone, including herself, that it won’t change a thing. She’s also afraid people are going to start seeing her as only a vessel and use her pregnancy to reduce her to the role of royal broodmare, when she demonstrated again and again that there is so much to her than this. Which might lead her to overdo things a bit and put herself at risk, without realizing it before it’s too late.

She might get frustrated with the changes in her body and how everything seems more complicated - she tires more easily, she’s much more short-tempered, she gets irritated. She’s also very distraught to find that her legendary self-control is seriously threatened by the baby messing up with her hormones. She has a hard time keeping her emotions in check and struggles to remain poised a lot more than usual.

She’s also, though she won’t admit it to anyone, very much scared of the actual birth. I’ve always headcanoned Celia losing a child when Anora was very young, and the whole ordeal her mother went through would have had a great impact on her mind. Plus, the fact that Celia isn’t here to help her with her pregnancy is something that’d bring her spirit down when she’d be having a particularly bad day.

Meanwhile Bran tries to be very understanding, especially about her fear to be put aside. He has a tendency to overprotect her, given his past and the losses he suffered, so he’d work to make sure he doesn’t coddle her and to assure himself she is included and treated like he normally would. He worries, though, especially when he sees her overworking and being much harder on herself than usual.

She wouldn’t tell him anything about her terror of the birthing bed, though Bran is very perceptive, and worries about this too anyways. Which is why he’d ask Anders to be there when the time comes, and he would casually mention it to Anora, as sthg akin to a precaution. 

Also, Bran helps her when she’s all worked up because of the baby and needs an outlet to her frustration. Which very often involves a bed. And sexy times. And, Grey Warden stamina be damned, he has a hard time keeping up.
