i think that ted bundy was innocent, like honestly. Although he confessed, maybe his mental disorder caused him to lie loads like idk. He just seemed so sweet and innocent and I honestly think it is rude how you just jump to these conclusions that ted was a mass murdererer, hes too hot to have murdered people. Innocence until PROVEN guilty, have you ever heard of that lmao?

I reached out my hand; England’s rivers turned the other way.
I reached out my hand; my enemies’ blood stopt in their veins.
I reached out my hand; thought and memory flew out of my enemies’ heads like a flock of starlings;

My enemies crumpled like empty sacks.
I came to them out of mists and rain;
I came to them in dreams at midnight;
I came to them in a flock of ravens that filled a northern sky at dawn;
When they thought themselves safe I came to them in a cry that broke the silence of a winter wood.

The rain made a door for me and I went through it;
The stones made a throne for me and I sat upon it;
Three kingdoms were given to me to be mine forever;
England was given to me to be mine forever.
The nameless slave wore a silver crown;
The nameless slave was a king in a strange country.

The weapons that my enemies raised against me are venerated in Hell as holy relics;
Plans that my enemies made against me are preserved as holy texts;
Blood that I shed upon ancient battlefields is scraped from the stained earth by Hell’s sacristans and placed in a vessel of silver and ivory.

I gave magic to England, a valuable inheritance
But Englishmen have despised my gift
Magic shall be written upon the sky by the rain but they shall not be able to read it;
Magic shall be written on the faces of the stony hills but their minds shall not be able to contain it;
In winter the barren trees shall be a black writing but they shall not understand it.

Two magicians shall appear in England.
The first shall fear me; the second shall long to behold me. 
The first shall be governed by thieves and murdereres; the second shall conspire at his own destruction;
The first shall bury his heart in a dark wood beneath the snow, yet still feel its ache;
The second shall see his dearest possession in his enemy’s hand…
The first shall pass his life alone, he shall be his own gaoler;
The second shall tread lonely roads, the storm above his head, seeking a dark tower upon a high hillside.

I sit upon a black throne in the shadows but they shall not see me.
The rain shall make a door for me and I shall pass through it;
The stones shall make a throne for me and I shall sit upon it.
The nameless slave shall wear a silver crown
The nameless slave shall be king in a strange country.

“Game Over, Charles” - Alternate Ending 

Part 1 // Part 2 // Part 3


During her frequent visits with Charles at Radley, Jessica encountered the father of another patient named Bethany Young. She and Mr. Young bonded over the struggle of having a child locked away and found comfort in eachother’s company. Soon their friendly relationship blossomed into an affair. Even after Charles was released, Jessica would come to Radley to meet with her lover while he visited Bethany. From time to time, she would take Bethany out on her own and even buy her gifts in an attempt to win the child over. Bethany, however, saw through the facade and believed it was all a ploy to keep stringing her dad a long. As time went on, she began to feel as though her father was coming to visit Mrs. DiLaurentis more than he was coming to visit her, and her resentment for the woman grew. 

One day, Bethany saw Jessica walking down the hall, and in a fit of rage, followed her all the way up to the roof and pushed her off. Only it wasn’t Jessica, it was another patient, Marion Cavanaugh; Bethany’s delusions and outbursts had gotten the best of her once again. Out of loyalty to Mr. Young, Jessica used her status on the board at Radley to cover up the murder and have Marion’s death listed as a suicide so Bethany would not be subject to punishment.

Bethany saw this as an act of leverage, but her father saw it as an act of kindness. She watched him become closer than ever to Jessica. She listened as Mrs. D told Mr. Young fantastic about her two youngest children, looked on as she showed him pictures of her perfect life and perfect daughter. Bethany was jealous. She knew her dad would rather have beautiful, smart, not-crazy Alison DiLaurentis as a daughter than the drugged-up, messed-up, locked-up, murdererous Bethany Young. So one day, wearing an outfit Jessica gave her, and a bracelet she made in art therapy to match the one Alison wore in photos, Bethany escaped Radley with a mission: to get rid of Alison and take her place. 

Mrs. D received a call from the institution warning her that a patient she had a relationship with was the loose. Knowing Bethany’s tendencies and just what she was capable of, Jessica asked Alison not to go anywhere that night. Alison didn’t listen. Her mom’s worst suspicions were realized when she witnessed through a window the “fragile patient” striking Alison with a rock. She ran outside, but it was too late. Bethany was gone, and Alison was dead. Confused, panicked, and feeling somehow responsible, Mrs. D buried her own daughter in a shallow grave, and went inside to call Mr. Young and tell him what transpired.

Meanwhile,  Wilden was on his way to the DiLaurentis home. He and Alison hooked up over the summer while on Vacation, and she told him she might be pregnant. After hearing she was back in Rosewood, he knew he needed to confront her about the situation. Wilden arrived and caught a glimpse of what appeared to be Alison standing in her backyard. As he approached, his gaze landed on a shovel nearby, and survival instincts took over. In the heat of the moment, Wilden decided to eliminate the problem altogether. Grabbing the shovel, he walked up behind the girl and hit her over the head without a single word. He fled the scene immediately. Wilden never realized it wasn’t Alison he hit, but an unsuspecting Bethany Young, who had returned to complete her masterplan and take Alison’s place. Ironically, she got exactly what she hoped for. She took Alison’s place not in life, but in her grave.
