Great Expectations {Emily ღ Ali} #21: I loved her against reason, against promise, against hope, against happiness.


#21;
e m i l y a l i s o n

I loved her against reason. Against promise. Against peace. Against
hope, against happiness. Against all discouragement that could be.
This is a story of girl meets girl. Alison DiLaurentis was Rosewood's very own Queen Bee. Rich and beautiful, she was both loved and feared. Emily Fields was Rosewood's star athlete on the swim team, but she was shy and guarded. On the first day that they met, Alison knew that there was something different about her. She knew they would end up as best friends -- and they did. But it was more than that, for Emily. Though her and Alison didn't always have a picture-perfect friendship, Emily fell in love with her anyway, despite her flaws. Or, perhaps, because of them.

The two were a c o m p l i m e n t a r y pair. Where Emily was shy, Alison was bold. Where Alison was brave, Emily was timid. Emily wore her heart on her sleeve and Alison kept everything inside, putting up a façade to make it look like she didn't need anyone. But Emily and Alison both knew that they needed each other. They knew each other best. Where Alison went, Emily went too. Their relationship was the strongest of the group's and everyone knew it. Emily protected Alison. Alison made Emily strong.

" m o r e than a friend."

Their first kiss was in the school library. While reading Great Expectations, Emily leaned over and kissed Alison. And Alison kissed her back. Emily had loved Alison for so long, but she had never even dared to hope that maybe, possibly, Alison felt the same about her. For that one perfect moment, when they kissed, Emily thought everything would end up happily ever after between herself and Alison. Just like in a fairytale.

But it was not to be. Alison loved Emily in her own way, but she was also scared of what was between them. It wasn't long before she hurt Emily by rejecting her other romantic advances; Emily was crushed. She wrote Alison a letter to try and tell her how she really felt, to try and push Alison out of her life, but she couldn't. No matter what Alison did, Emily kept on l o v i n g her. And after Alison's death, Emily still carried on, never taking off the friendship bracelet Alison made for her. Emily continues to hold out for Alison. She knows in her heart that Alison isn't gone, not really. Even though she tries, again and again, she still can't find a way to let Alison go. Alison is Emily's one true love; Emily will never love anyone as much as she loved Alison. And she will continue to love and wait for Alison no matter what.

the characters.




the moments.

[under construction]















the soundtrack.



you hold me without touch
you keep me without c h a i ns
i never wanted anything so much
than to d r o w n in your love
♪ gravity, sara bareilles

you had your c h a n c e love,
you tried to stay strong, you tried to let go
tell yourself you moved on,
but then it comes back
that f e e l i n g in your bones
like i'm right here
♪ ghost, parachute


even though it hurts, she's my favorite pain
she'll pick a f i g h t for no good reason
she knows i'll never leave
i l o v e her half to death
but she's killing me
♪ she's killing me, a rocket to the moon

tell me what i want to hear
i don't care if you're lying, baby
go ahead and call it l o v e
tomorrow you can deny it, baby
♪ lead me on, gloriana



i want your l o v e and
i want your r e v e n g e
you and me could write a b a d r o m a n c e
♪ bad romance, lady gaga

goodbye, my almost l o v e r
goodbye, my hopeless d r e a m
i'm trying not to think about you
can't you just let me be?
♪ almost lover, a fine frenzy

Because you're mine forever and almost always.
All this time we were waiting for each other. All this time I was waiting for you.
You’re in my veins, and I cannot get you out.

So I'm guessing we didn't get any EA flashback?

No, we didn't. All we got was the EA mention from the promo clip. But I'm glad we got at least THAT. And hey, there are still three more episodes to go! If anything, we'll at least get a group scene.

EA is all about patience -- don't forget, in the books Emily had been waiting for like, five years.

I saw that promo clip. So sweet ♥

Hoping for something epic to happen in the remaining 3 episodes but my heart is crying now. I guess I have been having so much high hopes since that interview with MK.

I feel like Low Expectations may be a more suitable ship name for EA at this point.

It is disheartening, but I have to have faith. At the very least we'll get EA ~in the future~. And I have to keep thinking about that. I knew this was going to be an incredibly tragic ship when I signed on. At least I know we'll always have the possibility of EA, which is more than can be said for some ships (like the poor Spencer/Wren shippers).

Ah, but Great Expectations is so fitting. Because the very idea is the desire for want of something grander, even in the face of impossibility.

Quote:
According to my experience, the conventional notion of a lover cannot be always true. The unqualified truth is, that when I loved Estella with the love of a man, I loved her simply because I found her irresistible. Once for all; I knew to my sorrow, often and often, if not always, that I loved her against reason, against promise, against peace, against hope, against happiness, against all discouragement that could be. Once for all; I loved her none the less because I knew it, and it had no more influence in restraining me, than if I had devoutly believed her to be human perfection.

I guess as long as Emily keeps wearing the bracelet and mentions Ali, I would still be ~happy~ for the possibility of future EA scenes. I just hate living in fear of this ship being dropped like many others on the show since EA is unpopular and the show doesn't want to stick to the books completely.

I guess we just got to stay positive.

Look at these Great Expectations quotes that fit EA:

Quote:
That was a memorable day to me, for it made great changes in me. But, it is the same with any life. Imagine one selected day struck out of it, and think how different its course would have been. Pause you who read this, and think for a moment of the long chain of iron or gold, of thorns or flowers, that would never have bound you, but for the formation of the first link on one memorable day.
EA kiss, right?

Quote:
I never had one hour's happiness in her society, and yet my mind all round the four-and-twenty hours was harping on the happiness of having her with me unto death.
EA in general.

Perfection.
