Tears and Love – The Pretty Little Liars Say Goodbye

It’s funny how it’s a TV show… Pretty Little Liars is a TV show and yet I sit here crying as I read the cast Instagram posts. I sit here crying because even though I know that I have a half of a season to look forward to, the idea that something that has been deeply rooted in my heart and taught me so much about fandom will be gone.

And selfishly, I am not ready. I am not ready to say goodbye.

I know that there comes a time in life where things end. You just have accept it, because nothing really lasts forever. But for me – Pretty Little Liars was something more. It was this journey into seeing characters I love each week. It was the same wave length for me as The Vampire Diaries. I grew with these characters. I watched them love and I watched them hate. I cheered for them and in a strange way some of the advice that they gave each other was the advice that I need for me.

Every time I was alone and I wanted to see someones life that was as crazy – well crazier than mine.

I hated the show at times. When I found out who A was and all the times that I missed the things that gave me the clues. I loved the show when I rooted for Aria and Ezra. I loved the ships and the moments where I saw me and my best friends – the loyalty, the love, and the madness.

Aria Montgomery taught me about following your heart and believing in your dreams. Hanna Marin taught me about finding who you are and always looking out for your friends. Emily Fields taught me about being true to yourself no matter what the cost. Spencer Hastings taught me about strength and being able to stand with your head held high no matter what. Mona – well, you taught me to seek help when I needed to and that people can change.

I’m not ready – but I thank you for letting us be a part of your world, liars. Thank you.

This guy made my job and life so fun. Thank you @ianmharding for being you. Cherish you always.

#Repost @cosmopolitan with @repostapp ・・・ @imarleneking opens up about the end of #prettylittleliars (grab a tissue, PLL fans ?): "Today marks the series wrap on 'Pretty Little Liars,' my home away from home for the last seven seasons. When I call 'cut' on the very last scene, all five PLLs will be in the shot. Tears will be spilled, gifts will be exchanged, and final memories will be made. The most meaningful gift, however, is that we call ourselves 'PLL Family' because that is how much we mean to each other. We have created a worldwide family of fans who have come together to watch and celebrate the show. Friendships have been made and sealed over the love our passionate fans have for 'PLL.' In an age where technology often separates people, we used social media to bring them together. In season six, Spencer quoted A. A. Milne, author of 'Winnie the Pooh': 'How lucky I am to have something that makes saying good-bye so hard.' And those words have never spoken to me so loudly. Thank you to the cast, the crew, and all the fans who have kept Rosewood alive; we would be nowhere without you. And as this chapter ends, to my 'PLL' family all over the world, I won’t say good-bye, I’ll say, 'See you soon, bitches.'" – I. Marlene King, #cosmoinstagramcolumnist #pll
