i feel like noel is definitely not A.D. and is just tangled up in the whole drama that is -A. like maybe he knew of charlotte/ mary/ mary’s other child via his family/ particularly his dad and maybe his brother? it seems as though there’s a definite connection between his father and at least jessica and mary. then noel has links to charlotte and alison. maybe charlotte had something on noel and blackmailed him or he just hated the liars and decided to help her and whilst linked to her he discovered A.D?
Tbh tho the phandom as a whole is shitty. There's reasons why a lot of people don't like us on the Internet, like when we spam "Don't cry, craft" and "protip" everywhere or ruined Felix's tumblr video to name some reasons out of many. If you're part of the phandom & not shitty as an individual person, rather than crying #notallofthephandom, recognize some of the problematic things people are doing and help put a stop to it.
