Guilty Party Show: The Player gets Played

Ha! I knew it! Emma wasn’t kissing Jake on the rooftop!

Right now, I still think it was Preston. He is the one who called the meeting. Sure, it could just be the president in him trying to avoid any scandal period, but now that Emma let it out that she didn’t kiss Jake on the rooftop, it’s just as likely if it was Preston, then she’ll let that out next! However, I also have a new theory! It could have been Alex! In the last scene, which came right after Charlie asked Jake who he thought it was, Alex was zooming into the bottom corner of his phone screen where it was just him and Emma! Maybe? Maybe not? Everything and everyone has to be questioned in a mystery.

I do think Charlie and Jake look super cute together! After all, it’s always the troubled, quiet one who tames the player, right? Either way, they’re cute together and since Emma is being pretty terrible right now, I don’t see her and Jake getting back together any time soon, if she comes back at all. So, why not start shipping our OTPs now? Haha.

I’ve gotta say, I’m kind of loving seeing/hearing Tiffany play a character playing for the dark side! She’s so cute and sweet in real life, that it’s fun to see a different side of her! Sure, she’s acting and technically we can only know her as much as social media allows us to, but I honestly interact back and forth with her more than I do with at least half of my social media friends that I’ve actually met in person, so I feel like I know her pretty well. I mean, she did say we’re BFFs now! 😉

Anyway, right now I’m thinking the same thing I was thinking in my first post, plus the thought that maybe Alex was the guy she was kissing on the rooftop? And that Charlie and Jake might make a super cute couple! I do have to add that Emma and Jake were super cute in that video he was watching too though

Maybe we’ll get to see a love triangle between Charlie, Jake, and Emma? I love those! Ha, ha. Especially if one of the three is kind of awful, because I always root for the bad guys to be good in the end. The way I see it, no one’s irredeemable until it’s all over! Who knows, maybe Emma will come back, see how cute and good Charlie and Jake are together and that will be what redeems Charlie and Emma’s friendship? Idk, I’m just theorizing here. Maybe Emma won’t come back at all or maybe she will, but she won’t be redeemed? All I know is that I love a good love triangle, especially if it ends up redeeming the seemingly irredeemable character!

Guilty Party Show: Who Did It – Already Theorizing

Y’all! I have a new Pretty Little Liars! It’s a new web series called, Guilty Party, starring the always lovely Tiffany Alvord. I’m so excited! Tiffany is one of my favorite YouTube stars and I’ve been a Tiffanatic since practically the beginning. Naturally, this is new show, especially since it’s a short show, is one of the best things I’ve heard about in a long time! I’ll be honest though, it does seem super cheesy, so far, but quite frankly, I don’t care! I trust that with Tiffany as the lead, I won’t have to worry too much about if it’s appropriate or not and will just be able to enjoy it! So, let’s get down to business!

Tiffany’s character, Emma Wilson, is the girl next door turned bullied because of the harsh tone of her journal entries. Should she have spoken so harshly of her friends in her journal? I don’t really think that’s up to us to decide. You see, a person’s journal is like their mind, unless they share it with you, then it’s none of your business. Cruel or not, it’s not like she shared these thoughts with anyone. No, you see, that’s what we’re going to figure out! Who did it? Who stole Emma’s diary, photocopied it, and shared it with everyone at homecoming last year? I suppose, we should go with our first clues. Those clues come from our very own Gossip Girl, Tess, where shared all of Emma’s spilled secrets on her blog, “Tea with Tess.” Normally, I wouldn’t condone reading someone’s diary, but since it’s already out there, and because I am trying to help Emma as much as I’m trying to help the rest of Warren Academy’s Elite, then I’ll make an exception this time.

Entry #1 – Sounds like maybe Emma found her very own Troy Bolton and kissed him on Warren Academy’s rooftop! Could it have been her perfect boyfriend and Warren Academy’s residential player, Jake Cruise? We don’t know, but go to Tess’ blog to read Emma’s journal entry!

Entry #2 – Ooh! This one’s juicy! Suddenly, she’s digging on BFF, Warren Academy’s Queen Bee, Tatiana Johnson? She says she’s tried to tell her today? What’d she try to tell her? This was about 3 weeks after her first entry, is it possible that the boy on the rooftop wasn’t Jake and was really Preston Fairchild, aka Tatiana’s boyfriend and Warren Academy’s Class President? She didn’t name him in her entry. Doesn’t that seem odd? Why be so cryptic if your journal entry is about your boyfriend? Or, it could be possible that Emma is bi or lesbian, which would be another reason to keep it a secret and to stay with Jake. Sigh. Only time will tell. Oh! She also took a few digs at Tatiana’s sidekick, Olivia and Warren Academy’s artist, Alex Silver.

Entry #3 – Uh oh! 2 days later, Emma is talking about how boring Jake is and about how she thinks she should feel more when she kisses him. That sure doesn’t sound like something a girl would say about the same guy she was gushing over only the month prior, right?

Entry #4 – Onto a different subject. Apparently, Emma and someone else, she says “we,” cat-fished Tess. Why? I mean, I know Tess can be, well… a little… you know, obnoxious! And she should totally mind her own business, but why would Emma catfish her? I mean, I get that they’ve been enemies since like forever, according to Tatiana’s vlog, but what’s the deal? Cat-fishing is way harsh!

Entry #5 – Sad entry! We’ve all been there. We’ve all drifted away from formerly close friends. That’s what happened with Emma and her lifelong best friend, Warren Academy’s Outsider, Charlie Vasquez. I totally know the feels! I had a childhood best friend that I also grew away from in high school, though I was a bit more like Charlie it seems than Emma. Anyway, I do feel bad for them both. Not sure why everyone’s made such a big deal about this entry? It’s not rude or harsh, just honest.

And now, we come to last will and testament of the Emma Wilson who was once loved and respected by everyone! The bullying showered over her after someone published her diary was so brutal that Emma left, never to be seen again, at least, not until now! Emma Wilson is back from the dead and looking for justice and revenge! How will she do that? Well, she’s calling out Warren Academy’s Elite and Powerful—Artist, Alex, Charlie, Jake, Preston, and Tatiana. As you can see in her letter, also on Tess’ blog, or you can hear Emma herself, and the principal of Warren Academy, read it out loud on the very first episode of Guilty Party.

Emma is convinced that one of these “five most promising students at the best, most progressive school on the west” is the one who shared her journal with the whole school. Even if they didn’t though, Emma says, “You did nothing while my life fell apart.” I don’t know if this is true quite yet, but they all looked guilty, so it must be true. Not to mention, if you go watch Olivia’s yearbook videos of each individual, then you’ll see that they all seemed a tad guilty or simply indifferent about Emma’s disappearance. Emma may be calling out her friends, Alex, Charlie, Jake, Preston, and Tatiana, but I’d like to add three names to our list of suspects, the before mentioned Olivia and Tess, and JR, the class clown and conspiracy theorist of Warren Academy.

Considering the fact that the first episode was only 4 minutes long, we have a surprisingly large amount of info to go off in our first theories. So, let me put out my first theories.

  1. Alex Silver – He’s an artist. Apparently, he’s a follower and one of Tatiana’s biggest admirers. This show would lead me to believe that there are going to be a lot of stereotypes. If that’s the case, then it’s likely Emma’s secret about Alex, or maybe even about Jake, is that he’s gay or trans? Most people don’t think that’s a big deal these days, but it’s still something that would be fairly harsh to share about someone if they haven’t come out on their own yet.
  2. Charlie Vasquez– Where could we even begin on theorizing here? She and Emma were best friends since they were kids. What kind of secrets wouldn’t Emma have about Charlie? Out of all of them, one would assume she’s got the most motive to air all of Emma’s dirty secrets.
  3. Emma Wilson – That’s right. I’m calling her out. A lot of us are actually. If she’s as awful as people now think she is, then why would anyone believe she didn’t share her own diary? Idk, I know it’s crazy, but PLL taught me that no theory is too crazy!
  4. Jake Cruise– Emma’s so-called Perfect Boyfriend. Was he though? Is that even possible if you’re known as a player? Maybe he wasn’t before Emma left. Who knows? If my theory about Emma and Preston is right though, and Jake somehow found out about it, then that would be more than enough motive to share Emma’s diary.
  5. J.R. – We don’t know much about him yet. He wasn’t in the first episode and he wasn’t mentioned in Emma’s diary, so the verdict is out whether he would have legit motives for airing Emma’s dirty laundry for all to see.
  6. Olivia – She’s the sidekick of Warren Academy’s Queen Bee. You don’t become the sidekick of the Queen Bee without having at least a little bit of mean streak in you. Could Olivia’s have come out because she was jealous of Emma and Tatiana’s close friendship?
  7. Preston Fairchild– Like I said, my theory about him right now is that he was the one who shared a forbidden kiss with Emma on the rooftop of Warren Academy. That’s what makes the most sense and every good mystery makes sense in the end. (That’s right PLL, I’m calling you out on your crappy, no sense ending!) So, yeah, if Preston and Emma were secretly hooking up, then maybe Preston stole her diary to scare her off? He didn’t want to outright tell her it’s over, because if he did, then he would have run the risk of Emma telling Tatiana about them and he couldn’t have that! How would it look for The President to have a cheating scandal under his belt?
  8. Tatiana Johnson– Two words: Queen Bee. It kind of comes with the territory that she’s on the top of our list, which is exactly why I don’t think she did it. It’s too obvious. I do think she’s got some juicy secrets though. Like maybe she didn’t really have cancer? Maybe she lied about it? That would be horrible and I’d be so pissed off if she did, but I’m just brainstorming with what little info I have here. I will not less this be another case of PLL where I don’t share EVERY crazy thought I have and the one thought I have that don’t share is what really happens! Ha!
  9. Tess – Tatiana said in her vlog that Emma and Tess have been enemies since forever. Plenty of fuel for the first that is gossip, right? Especially since Tess is Warren Academy’s Gossip Girl. For that reason, though, I don’t think it’s her. It’s too obvious, even more obvious than if it were Tatiana.
  10. All or several of them shared the diary and made a pact not to tell under any circumstances!

 

That’s the problem here though. It seems too obvious for it to have been any of the girls. Charlie is the scorned ex-best friend, Emma is the victim, Olivia is the wicked sidekick, Tatiana is the Queen Bee, and Tess is Gossip Girl. Maybe it’s not too obvious though? Maybe they want us to think it’s too obvious so we’ll be deterred away from believing it? Idk, y’all! I just, don’t know!

 

Only Time Will Tell,

Obsessive Girl

Only 22

When I’m at a loss for words, I write whatever comes to my mind. I do this in an effort to figure out whatever it is I’m feeling. It’s 4:30am on June 11, 2016. A few hours ago, 22-year-old YouTube sensation and star of ‘The Voice’ Christina Grimmie was shot and killed after a concert in Orlando, Florida. She was only 22. I am only 22. All life taken breaks my heart and leaves me wondering why people can be so cruel. This life taken affects me in a way I can’t quite explain. She was only 22. I am only 22. Along with Tiffany Alvord and Megan & Liz, Christina Grimmie was one of the first YouTube stars I ever listened to after learning there was any such thing as “YouTube stars” and “covers.” I have a YouTube channel now. I don’t have many followers and I have a lot of improving to do, but I have a YouTube channel. Seeing all that Tiffany Alvord, Megan & Liz, Christina Grimmie and many others have accomplished has inspired me to reach for my dreams no matter how unattainable they may seem to be. Christina was only 22 and I am only 22. Ideally, 22 year olds should have 50, 60, 90 years left to live! Life should just be beginning for Christina Grimmie. She was only 22. I am only 22. My life is just beginning and sadly, hers has just ended. How is this even real?

I didn’t know Christina, so I have no right to speak or write about her as if I did, so I won’t. I did know of her though. I knew she was a YouTube sensation and a star of ‘The Voice.’ I knew she seemed to be a genuinely sweet and caring person with a heart of gold that was after God’s own heart even when being catapulted into the bright lights of Hollywood. I don’t know Tiffany Alvord either, not really, but I know her about as well as I know any other person I rarely see in person but always see on social media. I actually receive Tiffany’s tweets to my phone because I always love to see what she has to say. Tonight, I did not love to hear what she had to say. Still though, like I often do, I clung to every word she shared. This time it was with a desperate hope that everything would be okay and that maybe I was just viewing the evidence of a sick prank or horrible nightmare. Alas, every word was true though. Christina Grimmie was shot at her concert in Orlando and she did survive. Tiffany said in a Tweet/Instagram post after Christina’s fate was revealed that “Christina has always been so amazing, so sweet, so caring, and loving.” Megan Mace said, “Christina is the kindest, sweetest soul.” I didn’t know Christina, but I do know enough about Tiffany and Megan to know that what they say about people is often true. Therefore, I know that Christina is a beautiful soul. I say this in the present tense, because souls don’t die. They only pass on. As far as I’m aware, Christina was a strong woman of faith, so we can live well in knowing that though she is gone, she is in a better place. Megan Mace also said, “God must have had bigger plans for your beautiful soul than any one of us could see here on Earth.” I know that’s true. I don’t know how, but I know it is. Christina knew this to be true as well, because three years ago she tweeted, “God knows the plans He has for us. So worry not. Which of [you] adds another hour to [your] life by worrying? #constantlesson.” I know she tweeted this because Tiffany, who most of gone through all of Christina’s tweets, retweeted it. I’m glad she knew this. I’m glad she shared this, because it is a beautiful reminder that even through something so heartbreaking, God is with us and using it for our good. Even still, knowing this truth does not mean it is not heartbreaking to lose someone so young. She was only 22. I am only 22.

I didn’t know Christina, but I do know she was only 22. Because I am only 22, I know that no matter how far she had come in following her dreams, her life was still just beginning. In the grand scheme of things, it was like that she was only quarter or even a fifth of the way through what should have been the span of her life. I am only a quarter or even a fifth of the way through what will ideally be the span of my life. It breaks my heart when any life is taken. The taking of Christina’s life breaks my heart in an unexplainable kind of way. She was only 22. I am only 22. It seems impossible that someone my age who was accomplishing so much in the way of her dreams is now gone. She was only 22. I am only 22. How is this even real? How is the world still spinning? For the past four hours since I read Tiffany’s first tweet about what was happening I’ve been refreshing my social media pages every few minutes to see what I can see about Christina. Originally it was for updates in hopes that a miracle would happen. After the confirmation it was in a dazed denial. I didn’t know Christina, but I knew she was only 22. I am only 22. It doesn’t seem real that someone could be taken from this world at 22. I know it happens all the time. I know it happens to people much younger. Still it doesn’t seem real. I’ve scrolled through my social media apps for answers and maybe even to see someone finally say it isn’t real. I don’t know, maybe that she did die but then started breathing again. It doesn’t happen often I know, but it does happen.

In comparison to God, no one in is good, but from a human stand point and a flawed point of view, some people are good in comparison to other people. In our world, there are good guys and bad guys. Christina was good. Even without knowing her, I knew that much. Even without knowing her and without knowing she was good, I know that her fellow YouTube stars/friends are good. Or at least, Tiffany Alvord and Megan & Liz are good. Why do bad things happen to good people? Because just like there is darkness where there is no light, there is evil where there is no God. Sometimes the darkness of this world creeps in as the shadows of those in the light. The darkness of the shooters world unfortunately creeped in as the shadows of Christina’s light. Her light will not be put out though. She may not be here with us physically any longer, but she will always be with us in spirit. Her life and legacy will live on through the music was able to release and through the lives she was able to touch. Her family and friends and fans will not her light go out. Whatever God’s plan is, it likely involves keeping Christina’s light burning in such a way that she can touch more lives than she could have ever dreamed touching when she was still with us.

I didn’t know Christina, but I knew of her. I knew she was only 22 and I am only 22. I cannot believe someone my age was fatally shot in the past 12 hours. Sadly, it is heartbreakingly true though. Among other lost lives I may never know about, Christina’s life was taken from us not twelve hours ago. She will live on though. Even at 22 she left a legacy that will not soon be forgotten. At 22, I will sit her with my phone in my hand and computer on my lap and contemplate the unfathomability of a lost life at only 22. It seems so unbelievable. A girl my age was fatally shot not 12 hours ago. How is this possible? I don’t know. It’s unexplainable, but it true. I have to finish writing this post with the heartbreaking knowledge that yes, it is true. She was only 22 and I am only 22. My life is just beginning and hers has sadly just ended.

With these last words, I will click publish, then close my laptop and lie down to sleep all while whispering a constant prayer in my heart for Christina’s family and friends and fans. I’ll even be praying for the family and friends of the man who shot her. He may have committed a horrible crime, but his family and friends don’t deserve to live a life knowing that someone I’m sure they loved and cared about not only ended someone else’s life, but also proceeded to end his own life. Rest in Peace, Christina, and Rest in Paradise. Sing to Jesus you beautiful girl and if it’s possible for you know to know what’s going on down her on earth, know that I and millions of other people are praying for your family and friends and remembering you as a beautiful human being. Thank you for your legacy. You shan’t soon be forgotten.
