why pll writers

i don’t see how anyone is surprised that marlene killed yvonne so spoby could happen. it was pretty fucking obvious that she wasn’t going to stick around from the start. it’s rushed, it’s shitty writing, it’s problematic as hell, and yvonne and spoby both deserved a far better resolution. 

But come on, this is the writing team that decided romance was having caleb and spencer fall in love for half a season only for caleb to cheat on her with hanna and then claim he’s loved hanna all along, who are still romanticizing a teacher/student relationship that, even looking past all it’s other transgressions, continues to be boring af, who think the best way to put emily and alison together, the slowburn ship to end all slowburn ships who would have had no trouble being brought together naturally, is to introduce two other girls for emily and then inject emily’s eggs into alison in a complete and utter violation of both girls bodies. 

like, did you expect better from the writers? really? if you didn’t see this coming i don’t know what to tell you. 

anonymous asked:

why the pll writers too scared to make hanna and mona a thing?? we could have had it all..............

the very least they couldve done is acknowledge that hanna marin is not and never has been a straight girl like they wanted us to believe…

Title: Safeguard

Part two


Taking a breath to compose herself for a moment, she was just wanted to immerse herself in a moment of silence when the doorbell rang. Quickly she ran down the stairs, obviously not quick enough as the shadow behind the window of her front door was now gone, she ripped the door open hoping to catch the person on their way out, instead she stopped, her eyes drawn to a figure sat on the porch.

“Paige?”

“Hey,” she paused smiling awkwardly. “I heard the news about Charlotte. I just wanted to make sure you were okay?” She stood up, a backpack hanging off her shoulder, her hands tucked into the pockets of her jeans as she shrugged with unease, immediately questioning her decision to just show up unannounced. Strangely it had actually become a thing for them since leaving high school. Paige showed up for Emily when she heard about Wayne, she showed up again out of the blue a few weeks later, then again on Wayne’s first anniversary. Paige’s last unexpected visit was mid-summer about a year ago, 6 months after Wayne’s anniversary. It was then Emily, whom had sought out the other girl since, showing up unexpectedly twice when she needed someone. No, that was a lie, when she needed Paige.

Pretty Little Liars is -A mystery show! NOT pretty little ezria!

“I’ve always said that Ezria is part of the DNA of this show and I stand by that statement.”    — Marlene King.

The synopsis of the show: Four friends band together against an anonymous foe who threatens to reveal their darkest secrets, whilst unraveling the mystery of the murder of their best friend.

We have 4 lead female characters so it’s inevitable to not get each of them a significant other (love interest), to help develop the character. you also have recurring characters to shape and form the mystery!  basically each character is involved somehow in the mystery.

Only Ezra’s character beside being Aria sidekick for the past 3.5 seasons couldn’t find his place in the pll universe. Yes -A threatened to expose his forbidden relationship with Aria back in season 1, but other than that a regular actor (and i have my respect to Ian Harding) was just there in the background to pass the time with BS storylines. so finally in 4x12 they tied his character to the mystery, most of the fandom cheered probably due to the fact that alot of them (including me) tried to find a legit excuse for Ezra’s character AKA “ezra is -A theories” that popped up during 2B but a lot of them develop in season 3.

So after 3 and half seasons that Ezra was irrelevant pll writers in 4B connected him to Alison just to say he wrote a book about her, STUPID MUCH?!? this is how you justify Ezra character to the pll fandom??? him being evil would make so much creativity in future plots but NO you want to save Ezria so he can’t be evil!

now ezria fans will call me hypocrite “why pll writers can copout fromToby is -A’ plot but not Ezra?” because unlike Ezra all Toby’s sub plots were related to Alison! even the one most of the fandom prayed to be over! (Toby’s mom plot), you learns that Ali and cece impersonate each other, you learn that Wilden was crooked cop, mrs. D is on the board of trustee and apparently protecting the patient that was on the roof with Toby’s mom.

“Ezria is part of the DNA of this show” and i ask HOW? WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT THEM? the only way they will be a part of this show is if they were -A!

As the seasons grow so does the audience, so i guess i can take comfort in the fact that pll writers are showing us that this relationship was based on a lie and misuse of power! the fact that MK want to redeem Ezra and save Ezria bother me! he was a grown man that spy on teen girls (surveillance cameras etc.), slept with a minor (probably with Alison as well), and manipulated Aria for 2 years (pll time aka 4 seasons).

I don’t care if this so called book will help the liars to find -A (probably next season), this plot is a pathetic excuse for the existence of Ezra character! (let alone a regular actor). i don’t care if he’ll help the liars next season, why he didn’t on previous ones? and him and Aria is a toxic relationship i rather not see at all on my screen!

My one little problem with Pretty Little Liars.

I understand straight away that not everyone is going to agree with me on this point, but it is something I wanted to talk about and address. Feel free to challenge me on any of my points, I am always open to other’s opinions. 

Yes, my problem is with regards to one, Paige McCullers.

Why? Paige means a lot to me, more than I can describe in a few written words, but that’s another point altogether. My problem relies on the characterisation of Paige, a character who has real-life flaws, a character who had been tormented and also played the role of the tormentor, a character who has made mistake after mistake but yet overcame them, a character who is courageous, brave and valiant and a character who has loved selflessly and has been loved wholly in return. Paige McCullers is a character who is not perfect. I would even go as far to say Paige withholds the most real-to-life values, decisions and actions on the entire show ultimately highlighting her role as the outlier amongst all the other characters in Rosewood, it is this that is most likely a contributing source of her hatred amongst fans. But unfortunately every inch of her being has been ripped down and torn apart ever since she disappeared off our TV screens, and honestly that really bothers me. Paige, ever since season one has championed, been victorious and experienced exponential character growth episode on episode. Once Paige had overcame her own demons she spent her time pouring every inch of her soul into protecting Emily Fields; running into the forest whilst on the verge of a panic attack, facing her worst tormentor eye to eye, always there waiting on the side-lines for the one she loves most, to name but a few of her defining moments. But that doesn’t exist anymore, her character has vanished and taken such wonderful development with her.

What happened, writers?

Paily one-shot.

So I have never posted a one-shot before, but this popped into my head after last night’s episode and succeeded in being written. This is my take on what happens when Emily makes her first phone call from prison. I hope it makes up for the lack of Paily on our TV screens.

A single phone-call

Words: 1209

“This call is from the Chester Women’s Correctional facility, you have a call from inmate: Emily Fields. To accept this call, press 1.” Paige’s heart dropped in an instant. How had things gotten so bad, how did Emily end up in jail now too? A brief fleeting wave of guilt washing over her, the feeling enough to make her consider hanging up the phone then and there. Paige was terrified to hear more of Emily’s voice than just the second she heard of the girl speaking her name.

“Hello.” Paige’s voice was low, lowering herself to sit on her single dorm room floor. Her back supported against the only window.

“Paige.” Emily whispered out on a breath. She sounded tired, exhausted even. Silence left lingering for a moment but it was a momentous flash in time too, the silence shared between them enough to still the earth. This was the first time they had heard from the other in over a month. Emily releasing a worn sniffle, bringing the two back to their current harsh reality.
