Anyway, your bio is hypocritical. Just like people are free to write whatever they want, we are free to criticize it however we want. It works both ways.
People are free to write whatever they want and you are free to criticize whatever you want about their work.
But you are not free to criticize however you want. You’re not free to attack a person’s moral fiber or existence because you don’t like their fiction. you’re not free to decide whether or not the creator was ‘allowed’ to write the fic based on their personal experiences or identity or race.
You’re not free to insult them, harass them, shame them for their content, go about defaming them, threaten them, post nasty things about them, speculate about their personal lives, or otherwise use ‘criticism’ as an excuse for intimidation, abuse, and ad hominem judgement of people whose power to influence the world through their fanfiction is no greater than your own.
My bio reads as follows: “everyone is free to write whatever they want. others are free to dislike it - but not free to defame a fanwork as evil because it squicked them.”
Fiction is different from real life because it’s a place where humans can explore the rules and experiences of real life without being restricted by reality or what would be ‘realistic’. We can imagine ourselves having happy endings to abusive relationships. We can date Mr. Dangerous without actually dating a dangerous man. We can experience the guilt of committing murder without actually murdering somebody. We can experience violence without getting hurt. Fiction lets our curious minds explore, lets us own and better understand why we allow morals to dictate our real lives, and gives us power over bad experiences because we can close the book or the browser or the e-reader anytime we like and never look back. When we start judging fiction on its moral merits and demand fiction only depict ‘moral’ things, we start down the road to censorship. And restricting fiction won’t make immoral or terrible things stop happening in real life.
‘This is evil’ is not criticism. It’s a moral judgement, and fandom is fucking full up on that. take it elsewhere.
Its so amazing that beyonce has constantly tried to
experiment in every solo album she released. In her first album as a solo
artist, “Dangerously in love”, the lead single ( which is now considered to be
one of the most iconic songs of all time) – “Crazy in love” was too retro and
full of horn riffs and blaring fanfare which tbh no one used in the 21st
century. Nevertheless, beyonce took the risk
and recorded it. She came up with the (now iconic) catchphrase –
“uh-oh-uh-oh,you know” and made it one
of the most popular songs of all time. Using Arabic tune with a hint of
bollywood style in “baby boy” or using sexual
tone yet remaining extremely
classy in “Naughty girl” - she took
these risks and succeeded.
In her second album, she changed her musical style again, using 1970-80s funk
influences and urban contemporary elements like hip hop. Plus her vision of
creating a record using live instruments helped in making this album different
than her last album and gave us amazing songs like “Ring the alarm” which uses
a siren as its melody. YES SHE USED A SIREN.; an amazing ballad “Listen” which
showed her vocal prowess and is now considered one of the “it” songs in
X-factor auditions; “Irreplaceable” which became one of the best selling songs
of 2000s .
In her third album , “I am…Sasha fierce” , she did this whole fun concept of a
battle between her true self and her alter ego which is brassy, big headed,
confrontational and witty. All this managed to invoke the interest of everyone.
The album not only gave us three iconic songs ; “Single ladies” , “If I were a
boy” , “Halo” but also managed to impress the critics and fans alike and won 6
grammys- the most by a female artist in a single night.
In her fourth album “4”, which boasts of one of the most beautiful ballads and
romantic songs of her career till date was critically acclaimed because of its
mid-tempo songs and evocations of late 1970s and early 1980s pop-soul. It gave
us her most funky and creative song yet
called “Countdown” , and a feminist anthem “Run the world(girls)”. Also Love on
top which had one of the best key changes of all times is considered one of the
hardest songs to sing and won a grammy. The whole album was a major departure
from beyonce’s dance-worthy tracks and
the world’s biggest star managed to explore her talent in ways few could’ve
But what truly made her the greatest entertainer of this generation was when
she released her eponymous fifth studio album on itunes without any
announcement receiving MASSIVE critical acclaim and commercial success.By
exploring darker themes for the first time and embracing her sexuality beyonce
made the kind of record people look upto. The album gave us an iconic song
called “Drunk in love” , the feminist anthem “ flawless” , the raw yet oh so
beautiful “XO” and one of the sexiest and most visually appealing songs of all
time “Partition” Rather than working for no1 singles, she created a body of
art- an album with an artistically rich music video for every song. The album
marked a wide shift in the industry standards of heavy promotions and the whole
hype around singles. There was no looking back, Beyonce had changed the rules
of industry and marked her place permanently as the undisputed queen of the
If that was not enough, beyonce released “Lemonade” , her most critically
acclaimed work to date, receiving universal acclaim . It was considered the
best album of 2016 and marked its place in history as one of the best albums of
all time. From the visuals to the poetry to the lyrical content- every aspect
of the album was perfect, receiving extremely positive reviews. Beyonce
broadened her reach towards different genres of music and effortlessly executed each and every one
alike - reggae(hold up), hip hop
(formation), country(Daddy lessons) , rock (Don’t hurt yourself) , dance (
sorry) , Ballad ( Sandcastles) , Soul ( Freedom ). The album is considered to
be a monumental feat in the history of music
and is planned and executed with utmost perfection. Something that is
synonymous with beyonce now. The lead single
“Formation” officially became the most awarded song in history
surpassing Michael Jackson’s thriller.
It truly amazes me how people try everything to tarnish her image and some even
have the audacity to compare her with the mediocre artists of this generation
who a few pop/RnB/country hits but can’t even hold a note without breathing
heavily. Nevertheless, beyonce continues to be a legend and set an example for other artists.
I feel like I’ve been seeing a lot of these lately so I’ll do one for something that’s near and dear to me, and far too specific.
Thomas: Film major. So studious that he has no business being in art school. He plans out his projects and how much he’ll work on them each day and sticks to it. He’s so well-organized that it pisses off his classmates, but he’s a nice guy and invites his friends out to the local coffee shop for study sessions.
Guy-Man: Illustration major, and Thomas’s humorously mismatched roommate. He snoozes through art history lectures, waits until the night before to start his art project, and arrives to critique 10 minutes late but he’s so good at bullshitting that he finishes each semester with decent grades.
Pedro: Illustration major with a lean toward advertising. His own work is simple and doesn’t stand out much but he always gives really helpful and constructive feedback to everyone else. He’s a bit goofy but nice and everyone likes him.
Xavier: Sequential art major. Fills up a ton of sketchbooks full of stupidly gorgeous and detailed doodles but couldn’t be fucked to put much effort into his class projects. Often finds himself socially isolated due to a bad case of resting bitch face.
Gaspard: Undecided. Doesn’t draw that much on his own but churns out pretty solid class projects with a distinct style. Nude figures are a recurring theme with him. He can often be found vaping outside the illustration building.
Sebastian: Animation major. All-black, Hot Topic trash with an art style heavily influenced by Jamie Hewlett. All of his projects include gore or nudity or both. His student film is a dark dystopian tale with unsettling animation and is, like, totally a statement on the human condition. He’s quiet and sits in the back and everyone’s a little scared of him.
Oizo: Dual majoring in fine art and film. Also the school’s biggest hipster.Titles all of his artwork as if he got it from a random word generator 5 minutes before class. Nobody understands the meaning behind his work even when he explains it, leading to mediocre grades. However, he once wrote an 8-page essay for art history meticulously analyzing The Treachery of Images and got a 110 on it.
Breakbot: Graphic design major. He can always be seen on the quad in a hammock he tied between two trees, coffee in hand and Macbook in his lap. Spends the weekend getting stoned and watching adult cartoons, which might explain some things about his style.
Kavinsky: Undecided. That one guy who is way too obsessed with “the good old days.” Everything he makes looks like Blade Runner meets Star Wars meets every Michael J. Fox film ever. Owns an Atari and more records than he’ll ever actually listen to.
Gesaffelstein: Photography major with a minor in film. All of his projects are dimly lit and often involve weapons or people dying. Some think he’s a psychopath but really he just watches too many crime dramas. Half the school has a crush on him but his broody personality keeps relationships from lasting long.
Danger: Illustration major with a lean toward concept art. He’s quiet and nerdy and doesn’t really talk to anyone but dominates every critique with gorgeous landscape pieces that leave the rest of the class feeling inadequate. Even the professor is stumped for suggestions.
Feel free to change stuff or add more stuff on as you see fit.
Summary: Living in 1940′s Brooklyn as a crime lord is all fun and games until someone falls in love
Warnings: for now just swearing and brief mentions of torture
Bucky huffed on his cigarette as he walked down the empty streets of Brooklyn, a crooked little smile upon his face as his dress shoes clacked against the pavement. He’d had a business meeting only a few hours before but his newer- partner- had taken a little more negotiating than others.
“Good evening officer,” Bucky smirked as he tucked his bloodied fist into a handkerchief, hiding the already scabbing wounds. The officer gave him a polite smile and gently tip of his hat as he walked down on the road, attempting to hide the way he nearly quaked in his shoes as he walked off. Bucky chuckled dryly as he puffed a little bit of smoke into the air, watching it curl up beautifully only to dissipate a few moments later. With a gentle sigh Bucky continued on his way, bypassing half the slums of Brooklyn and slowly, nearly leisurely, made his way to the nicer, bigger houses in the Brooklyn area.
The lights to his house were on and a figure stood in the doorway, their arms folded over their chest as the looked out into the road with no doubt that distasteful eye of theirs.
“Dot,” Bucky smiled as he made his way up the steps to his home, kissing his girlfriend on the cheek. “Hiya babydoll,”
“You’re late,” She sighed, tucking a red curl behind her ear. Bucky gave her a gentle smile as he flicked his nearly burnt cigarette into their rose bushes.
“Business ran a little later than usual, seems like old Danny won’t be able to sell secrets for a bit,” Dot smiled, a twisted little thing as she got up on her tiptoes to press a kiss to Bucky’s lips.
“You cut out his tongue, didn’t’cha?” She asks with an almost morbid curiosity. Bucky smiled as he pressed another kiss to her cherry painted lips, letting her sweet taste fill his mouth.
“Mh, It was only fair, was it not?” Dot smiled even more, her hands sliding up to grasp at Bucky’s blood stained tie.
“Such a dirty boy Mr. Barnes,” She chuckled in an almost sultry tone.
“You know it,” Bucky gave her a little wink as he stepped away from her, waltzing into his warm kitchen. “Ah, doll, you made me dinner?”
“ ‘Course I did Baby, I even warmed it up for ya,” Bucky turned to Dot with a mock fond smile, an almost coo falling from his lips.
“You’re so good to me Dot, what would I do without’cha?” Dot smiled, an almost girly chuckle falling from her lips as her cheeks dusted a light pink.
“I suppose starve, you don’t ever seem to have the time to stop and eat,” Bucky smiled, turning back to look at the food with an almost ravenous look.
“Of course I would,’
(Y/N) walked down the street, their jacket pulled around their freezing form tightly as they breathed in and out shallowly. Damn, they hated their stupid asthma and they hated stupid winter. With a wheezing little breath (Y/N) turned a corner, marching right out onto main street. (Y/N) eyed the little bakery just down the block, it’s soft lights an invitation to get out of the cold, an invitation (Y/N) would accept. With a smile (Y/N) walked as briskly as they could to the shop, pulling open the old wooden door.
“(Y/N),” Mrs. Rogers, the baker, smiled out at (Y/N) with bright eyes and rosy cheeks. “I was wondering when you were going to stop by today,”
“Sorry,” (Y/N) gives her an apologetic little smile as they remove their mittens and hat. “Asthma’s been acting up and I got here as fast as my horrible lungs could carry me,” Mrs. Rogers gave them a sympathetic smile as they browsed over the baked goods, their fingertips gently reaching out to brush along the glass. “How’s Mr. Rogers doing?” (Y/N) poked their head up from the case just long enough to give Sarah a look before ducking back down again to look at the cookies, cakes, and breads.
“He’s just fine deary, thank you for asking,”
“And what about-” The name catches in (Y/N)’s throat, as though stuck by some invisible force. “What about Steve?” Mrs. Rogers sighs, her bright eyes losing their shine.
“I don’t know (Y/N), he’s hardly ever visiting, he doesn’t ever write to us, we only ever see him on the streets smoking with some hooligans.”
“I’m sorry,” Is all (Y/N) could provide, their tone coming across as sympathetic. “It happens to the best of them,”
“These….these gangs are dangerous aren’t they?” (Y/N)’s head perks up again, a look of remorse crossing their winter touched features.
“Yes Mrs. Rogers, very dangerous,’ Sarah sighs, hanging her head in shame.
“That boy is going to be the death of me…” A brief look of pain crossed her features before she was suddenly perking back up again, her cheery smile returning (even if it was a bit more plastic this time). “Well, what are you going to be having sweetie?” (Y/N) gave her a small smile as they point to a loaf of bread, the steam still slowly rising from it. With a smile Sarah retrieves the loaf, placing it in a small bag for (Y/N) to take home.
“Tell your mother to come visit sometime, god knows she needs to get out of that house every so often,” (Y/N) chuckled as they placed a few coins on Sarah’s nearly pristine counter top before they reached over and grabbed the still steaming loaf of bread.
“I’ll be sure to, I’m sure she’d love to catch up,”
“And mind that asthma of yours! I don’t want you dropping dead on me!” Sarah calls after (Y/N) as they exit the shop with a wave, a small smile plastered on their dusted cheeks. Sarah smiles as she places the money in the register, listening to the satisfying little chime that issued when she dropped the coins in. Her thoughts drifted to (Y/N), of poor sickly, stubborn (Y/N). God bless their soul she loved them, but in this world, with their ailments she doubted they’d last very long. And oh how right she’d been…
Bucky walked through the freezing streets of Brooklyn with a lighter in his hand, his thumb flicking over the tiny flame over and over again, almost tempting fate to burn him but he knew it wouldn’t, even fate was scared of Mr. Barnes. With a little satisfied smirk Bucky flicked the cap closed and placed the lighter back in his pocket, right next to his Brazilian imported cigarettes. His eyes linger on the small rounded material as he turns a corner, his feet carrying him down the familiar main street but suddenly his freshly polished shoes are colliding with some force, another person to be exact.
Bucky grunts a bit as he grabs onto whoever he bumped into, gripping them to steady not only himself but them as well.
“Sorry there kid, I didn’t even see you there-” Bucky’s sentence trails off as he looks up, his blue gaze connecting with one of the most gorgeous faces he’d seen in his life. Their eyes were brimming with tears, no doubt due to the harsh air, their cheeks and nose were dusted an almost innocent pink color, and their outfit, albeit old and shabby, complimented their rather sweet look very well.
“I’m sorry,” They whisper, their voice rather hoarse. “I wasn’t looking were I was going and-”
“It’s a-okay kid,” Bucky gives them a gentle smile as he dusts off their shoulders. “Nobody got hurt,”
“Well uh- thanks for sparing me a lecture about being mindful,” (Y/N) smiles sheepishly, their face suddenly contorting with pain as they turn their head to the side and cough up a raging fit. If Bucky didn’t know any better he’d say they were dying, hacking their lungs right up into the crease of their arm but suddenly the fit ends and they look at him again, giving him a sheepish smile. “Sorry,” (Y/N) whispers, their voice even more hoarse than before. “Um, thanks again though Mr…?” They trail off, waiting for Bucky to supply them with an answer. Bucky chuckled a bit, shaking his head in almost amusement. Oh, this was always his favorite part, telling someone his name and watching the life and color drain from their face, watching the way their eyes would dim and their smiles would fall.
“I’m Bucky. Bucky Barnes, and you are?” (Y/N) suddenly gulps, their eyes widening just enough to let Bucky know that they recognized his name.
Bucky Barnes- mobster and leading crime lord of Brooklyn 1944.
Whilst I still stand by my first endgame theory, today I want to explore an alternative way the endgame could potentially unfold.
One day at Radley, Charlotte accidentally pushed Marion Cavanaughoff the roof. Jessica, who was on the board at Radley, agrees to help her niece Charlotte by ruling Marion’s death a suicide, but internally within Radley, Charlotte blamed Bethany for it. Charlotte reversed the roles when telling her story to the liars in 610 so that they would feel sorry for her.
Jessica feels bad that an innocent patient, Bethany, was blamed for something her niece did so she signs Bethany out of Radley to adopt and ride a horse. Considering she helped Charlotte get away with it, it is the absolute least Jessica can do. But Bethany isn’t appreciative of these sympathetic gifts because she knows that Jessica is having an affair with her father. Jessica asks Bethany to call her “aunt Jessie” as a way of saying “I’m not having an affair with your father, I’m just a long lost aunt hence I’ve been around your father lately!” Bethany throws a tantrum and buckets after Jessica’s lies. “Is it like mother like daughter?” and “can I trust anyone in that family?” says Bethany in her recordings. Bethany’s hatred is building towards two dead characters, ‘mother and daughter’ Charlotte and Jessica. (Even young Charles thought they were a part of the DiLaurentis family for quite some time.)
After Charles’ funeral, Charlotte’s doctors let her go, out of belief that trapping a transgender patient in a mental asylum isn’t doing any good. And, she’s apparently been making progress… again, Bethany was blamed for Charlotte’s fatal mistake. She never returned to Radley as Charlotte: she was free to walk the streets of Rosewood. She created the new alias CeCe Drake, after having found out about her birth mother Mary Drake (although having still never met her). CeCe attended college and shared a roommate, explaining how she knew everyone at Eric Kahn’s party and perhaps how she slipped into the Rosewood High yearbook. This also explains why Charlotte needed a visitors pass to see Mona in Radley, as she was no longer a patient that can sneak down the hall.
During college, CeCe and Noel happened to be at the same frat party. Noel accidentally pushed a girl down the stairs, but of course the bystander ex-Radley patient gets the blame for it. As a result, Charlotte is kicked out of college for something Noel did. Hence Noel helped Charlotte in the dollhouse; he felt he owed something to Charlotte. He took something from her that she worked extra hard for.
While CeCe was off beginning her new life in Rosewood (still before ‘that night’), Bethany was still in Radley, taking medication that should have Charlotte’s name on it, drowning in her own drool. That’s sure to drive her crazy.
“That night”, Bethany escaped with the intent of killing Charlotte as revenge for ruining her life. Jessica, who was Bethany’s caretaker at Radley, got a call that night from Radley workers informing her that Bethany has escaped. “I’m very worried, please send someone”, said Jessica, knowing how much Bethany hates her and her niece. A war was brewing. Charlotte wanted to hurt Bethany before Bethany harms anyone. Charlotte accidentally hit Ali instead of Bethany, but thankfully Mrs. Grunwald came to Ali’s rescue. “I swear I thought it was Bethany, mum” cried Charlotte.
Mona hit Bethany with a shovel thinking she was hitting Ali; she hated Ali that much. The purpose of a psychic saving Ali was because only a psychic could know to come back to Rosewood and save another person: Bethany Young. Mrs Grunwald sensed more danger and went and saved Bethany. I don’t like supernatural elements as much as the next person, but it exists, and we have to acknowledge it and use it.
Notice how the person saving Ali/Bethany is different in the two instances. TWO people were pulled out of the dirt. (Red sleeve vs no sleeve.)
Bethany Young is alive.Bethany Young is Uber A and AD, which stands for After Death. Whilst there have been many deaths over the seasons, Bethany’s “death” was THE death that started it all and so it’s very iconic for her to go by AD. We know AD has to be someone who has access to medical records, as they leaked Yvonne’s abortion and Veronica’s sickness. Who better than someone who successfully faked her death?
Bethany couldn’t stand the idea of that bitch Charlotte getting 5 years treatment and then getting to go home with her family, happily ever after. As revenge, Bethany killed Charlotte the exact same way that Charlotte killed Marion and blamed her for it: Charlotte was pushed off a building (bell-tower).
Here is our clue from the writers that we should be looking at Bethany. In the (FAKE) flashback we saw of Bethany, she was wearing this red sweater.
Yet we saw someone in an awfully similar red sweater walk into the bell-tower the very night Charlotte was killed: Bethany? Again, even though it was a fake flashback and that red sweater doesn’t technically exist, it is the writers foreshadowing.
And if it wasn’t already clear, Bethany killed Jessica, too… the affair that could’ve teared apart her family forever (Bethany might have become related to Charlotte, that thought scared Bethany!) and Jessica also helped Charlotte get away with pushing Marion. Jessica had to go. Season 5A made it extremely easy to guess that Melissa and/or Peter killed Jessica with Peter’s drugs, and hence they lied about where they were the night she was killed. Yet, here we are in 7A, and the writers still haven’t confirmed Melissa and Peter’s involvement. For that reason, I believe the answer is elsewhere. If it really was Melissa and Peter, that could’ve been confirmed years ago. If it really was Melissa and/or Peter, why is it being extended into season 7B? Because there’s more to the story. It was Bethany.
Bethany/AD chooses to frame Melissa for Charlotte’s murder. Out of all people in Rosewood, why did the killer chose Melissa? Because Melissa has a motive that would make sense in front of a jury: Charlotte sent Wren the video of Melissa confessing to burying Bethany the actual person in the grave, which lead to Wren breaking up with her. Melissa’s relationship crumbled, combined with the simple fact that Charlotte is in possession of a video that could destroy Melissa’s reputation forever, is why Bethany decided Melissa is the perfect candidate to frame: she would have a motive to want Charlotte dead.
Bethany stole Melissa’s suitcase, broke the handle and bashed Charlotte’s head with it. She then put the suitcase back before Melissa notices it’s missing… or did she? Whilst unpacking her clothes, Melissa says in 613 “I know I had more clothes in here”. Evidently Melissa’s suitcase was tampered with.
Melissa was the person sending unsigned, emoji texts throughout 6B. She was being harassed by Bethany, that if she doesn’t admit to killing Charlotte or find another killer before the end of the election night, her confession video will be shared with everyone.
How did Bethany even get her hands on this video? From Wren. As we know, Charlotte sent the video to Wren so clearly Wren is in possession of this video. The reason he instantly ended his relationship with Melissa is because Bethany is his sister and he was mad that Melissa potentially killed his sister and didn’t say anything. Of course, she’s alive now, but what a big secret that is to keep.
As Emily stated in 617 after being attacked, “there’s definitely 2 people after us”. Bethany wanted Emily to touch the suitcase handle (why not have a second person to frame?) whilst Melissa was the one trying to get it back to save herself.
Marlene has said there is one question she can’t wait to answer, but she can’t tell us what this question is because the question itself is a spoiler. That question is precisely “who is actually in the grave?“ The answer is one that makes total sense: Alison’s twin. This also explains how the Jane Doe was identified as Alison in the first place: similar DNA.
They foreshadowed this in 513 by showing a dead Alison in a grave. This was the writers telling us that YES, despite all complications, there really is an Alison in the grave. We already have twins; Mary and Jessica. However, scientifically, twins CAN give birth to twins. So, it is possible to have another set of twins involved in the endgame. Also, Marlene has explicitly said that “we won’t see Courtney”. We may never actually find out the name of Ali’s twin. It doesn’t matter. They aren’t alive, they aren’t A like in the books. We will never see them. They are DEAD.
It’s also possible that the person in the grave is a random girl we’ve never met before - probably one of the many new cast members joining the finale.
This is tricky to answer for 2 reasons:
- At the time of this Tweet, Marlene knew there will be a FAKE flashback involving Bethany in 610. Ignore that flashback COMPLETELY. It never happened. That was Charlotte retelling a story of lies.
- There is before the incident regarding her face,
- There is after the incident regarding her face.
One day whilst on temporary release, Bethany was with Jenna in Jenna’s garage. Alison and her friends threw fireworks inside and as a result, Jenna was blinded and Bethany was burnt. This is how the show is coming full circle as we are circling right back to the stories of season 1. Bethany hates Ali and the girls for the permanent damage she has suffered.
Alison blamed Toby for ‘The Jenna/Bethany Thing’ which Bethany assumes means that Toby was involved, too. Hence, in a true moment of anger right after her name was announced to the public on television, Bethany blew up Toby’s house.
Note that Bethany never shows her face in her pictures. This is not laziness by any means, she is actually a brilliant artist.
So whilst Bethany is framing Melissa for Charlotte’s murder, she is harassing the Liars over it too because they ruined her life.
Bethany/AD is walking around Rosewood in masks. Her face is deformed, on top of the fact that she’s supposed to be dead. She cannot show her face. Further, 6A revealed that Bethany Young shared a room in Radley with Leslie Stone. That same season we saw Leslie with boxes of glasses identical to those that AD has been wearing. Leslie knows Bethany is alive and she was trying to locate her long lost friend - she found her!
Bethany shot Spencer as not only revenge for burning her (The Jenna/Bethany Thing), but for being the one to bash her over the head that night. Of course, Spencer didn’t actually do it (Mona did) but since everyone in Rosewood thought it was Spencer, Bethany later latched on to this popular belief. (Note: if Alison survived a rock to the head, Bethany survived a bashing to the head, too. Heightened reality, unfortunately.)
This message was from Bethany:
Again, note the blacked face.
This Black Veil person from 401 was Bethany. CeCe’s story of who this person was, revolved around Sara Harvey pulling off a veil to reveal her face, but in reality, there is a (BURNT) Alison mask underneath that veil. CeCe’s version couldn’t be true as Sara never had a mask when she entered the limo. Sara never saw the girls as dolls - Sara was just Charlotte’s decoy, so it makes no sense for Sara to have been playing dolly earlier… This is Uber A.
Why would Sara Harvey care about Bethany Young? She doesn’t. Below is Bethany sending flowers to her family who she misses. She wants to tell them she’s alive and well! But first she wants to finish off this game and punish the people who hurt her.
Despite the above Tweet being from 2013, she is going to follow through with that in these final episodes because:
I know what you’re probably thinking… Bethany being Uber A is not satisfying. To me, it is! It goes right back to season 1 as it revolves around ‘that night’. The person that suffered that night in the pilot, is back for revenge!
I could do a part 2 for this theory to explain who is Bethany. Who are her parents? Is she a DiLaurentis? Is the “aunt Jessie” thing supposed to be taken literally - is she a Drake? Is she someone’s twin? Is Melissa Bethany? Is Sara Harvey Bethany (I hope not, but very possible)? Is Bethany Charlotte’s twin who also transitioned, hence Jason thought he saw CeCe that night (but really it was Bethany, like Charlotte says)? I believe we are dealing with Bethany - but who is Bethany, is for another day. I do NOT believe for a split second they will make Uber A be a person we’ve never met before. That’s pathetic.
When the Bethany-ideas came flooding to me, I googled ‘Bethany is Uber A’ to see the fan consensus on this topic and the first result was an amazing post by @the-outlast. Whilst we have some largely contrasting opinions on some aspects, shoutout to this person for a couple pieces of evidence I used to explain our belief that Bethany is alive :)
Random thought, but what if part of the reason Webby has such high opinion about Donald is because she actually has met him before?
What if Donald, before (or just after) Mrs. Beakley became Scrooge’s house-keeper, saved Webby from danger? Because I don’t think it would matter the kid wasn’t his - Donald would risk his life to save a child from danger.
Perhaps Webby was too young to remember it herself, but she then grew up hearing her grandmother (and Scrooge?) telling her about how Donald saved her life.
