Great Expectations {Emily ⚢ Alison} #1: “I know how I feel when she looks at me. I've never felt that with anyone before.” -Alison

e m i l y a l i s o n

appreciation thread

I loved her against reason, against promise, against peace, against
hope, against happiness, against all discouragement that could be.

It was 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 they didn't always have a picture-perfect friendship, Emily fell in love with Alison 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 most special. 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 together, Emily leaned over and kissed Alison. And Alison kissed her back. Emily had loved Alison for so long, from the first time they'd met, but she had never even dared to hope that Alison could ever feel the same way about her. For that one perfect moment, Emily believed that they would get a happily ever after, 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. Though Emily was crushed, she couldn't push Alison out of her life. No matter what Alison did, Emily kept on l o v i n g her. Even now that Alison is gone, Emily continues to hold out for Alison. She knows in her heart that Alison is still with her; Emily can't find a way to let Alison go. Emily will never love anyone as much as she loved Alison. And she will continue to love and wait for Alison, always.

“She and Alison were together for a long time and it is very special to Emily.”
Shay Mitchell

against promise, against peace, against hope, against happiness, against all
discouragement that could be. I loved her nonetheless because I knew it.”

“Love her, love her, love her! If she favours you, love her. If she
wounds you, love her.
If she tears your heart to pieces – and as it gets
older and stronger, it will tear deeper – love her, love her, love her!”

the soundtrack.


● ● ●

“You have always adored her, ever since I have known you. You brought your
adoration and your portmanteau here, together. Told me! Why, you have always told
me all day long. When you told me your own story, you told me plainly that you began
adoring her the first time you saw her, when you were very young indeed.”

their relationship in the books.

If the others were around, Ali might have dogged Emily a little more for it, but when it was just the two of them, she could tell her what she really thought. When Ali was with Emily and only Emily, being polished and perfect didn't matter as much.
Ali's Pretty Little Lies

They were silent again. Static electricity hung in the air, as scratchy as a dryer sheet. The birds chirped. Far in the distance, someone barked out a laugh. And then, suddenly, Emily twisted her body toward Ali. Before Ali knew what was happening, Emily's lips were touching hers. They felt soft, normal, just like a guy's lips, really, and for a split second, Ali shut her eyes and let the sensation wash over her.
Ali's Pretty Little Lies

"I need to get something off my chest. I know I told you that the kiss we shared in the tree house was a joke. But it really wasn't. I meant it for you and only you. I'm so thrilled we're friends ... I don't want anything to come between us, but I don't think it will. You felt something too, didn't you? I could tell."
Ali's Pretty Little Lies

"We were best friends. I cared about her so much. So this one day, sort of out of the blue, I did it ... Ali and I were in this tree house in her backyard – we went there a lot to talk. We were sitting up there, talking about this guy that she liked, some older boy whose name she wouldn’t say, and I just felt like I couldn’t hold any of it in anymore. So I leaned over and kissed her."
Pretty Little Liars

And then, because Emily couldn't stand it any longer, she leaned forward and kissed Ali. There was a singular, wonderful moment; then Ali pulled away and laughed. Emily tried to pass it off like she was just playing ... and then they went to their separate houses to have dinner. She’d thought about the kiss so many times, she’d hardly remembered what had come before it.
PLL: Flawless

Emily had loved Ali more than anyone — they used to call Emily 'Killer,' as in Ali's personal pit bull.
PLL: Perfect

There were many times she’d imagined running away before — Ali used to say she’d go with her. Hawaii was one of their top five choices. So was Paris. Ali said they could assume different identities. When Emily protested, saying that sounded difficult, Ali shrugged and said, "Nah. Becoming someone else is probably really easy." Wherever they chose, they promised to spend tons of uninterrupted time together, and Emily had always secretly hoped that maybe, just maybe, Ali would have realized she loved Emily as much as Emily loved her.
PLL: Unbelievable

"She used to talk about you, you know ... She said you were her favorite of all her friends. You guys had a special bond."
"We did," Emily said, her cheeks warming. "I miss her so much ... I've never had another friend like Ali," Emily admitted. "Even though she could be mean, I would have done anything for her."
Pretty Little Secrets

If I've learned anything, it's that the key to Emily's heart is the best friend she loved and lost. If Emily thought there was any chance that her dear Ali was back, she'd go to the ends of the earth to find her.
Pretty Little Secrets

Out of all Ali’s old friends, Emily was definitely having the toughest time handling Ali’s death. It was just that she’d never had a best friend like Ali, before or since. It didn’t help, either, that Ali had also been Emily’s first love, the very first girl she’d ever kissed. If it were up to Emily, she wouldn’t be burying Ali at all. She was perfectly fine with keeping her Ali memorabilia on her nightstand forever and ever.
PLL: Wicked

She’d fallen in love with Ali in seventh grade ... In fact, now that she thought about it, the very first time Emily had ever seen Ali ... It was a few days before she started third grade, and Emily and her mom were at the grocery store ... A pretty blond girl about Emily’s age bounded right past them, skipping up the cereal aisle. There was something intoxicating about her, probably because she was everything plain, introverted Emily wasn’t.
PLL: Killer

Emily had spent years pining over Ali, obsessing over every contour of her face, memorizing every hair on her head ... When she’d seen Ali in the woods on Saturday night, her heart had filled with joy ... Emily couldn’t imagine why Ali would want to leave Rosewood; she always secretly hoped that it was because Ali wanted Emily all to herself.
PLL: Heartless

Emily heard a sigh and opened her eyes. Courtney’s face was inches from hers. "Oh," Emily breathed. Courtney moved even closer. The room vibrated with possibility. "I ..." Emily started, but then Courtney leaned forward and touched her lips to Emily’s. A billion explosions went off in Emily’s head. Courtney’s lips were soft yet firm. Emily’s mouth fit hers perfectly. They kissed deeper, pressing harder. Emily was pretty sure her heart was beating even faster than it did in a fifty-meter freestyle sprint. When Courtney broke away, her eyes were shining.
PLL: Wanted

Carolyn didn't understand. This wasn't a normal crush like the one she had on Maya or Isaac. For years she’d thought of being with Ali, of going to Stanford with her and then maybe — if she was lucky — getting a little house together with one of those cute rooster weather vanes out front. The idea of coming on too strong and ruining her chances with Ali paralyzed Emily. Ali's opinion meant everything, and if Ali rejected her, Emily wasn’t sure what she’d do ... Emily had already envisioned sitting with Ali by the duck pond’s edge in the springtime, holding hands and blowing dandelion seeds across the grass. She’d imagined riding bikes with Ali around the winding streets of the development and camping out in her big backyard, waking up every few hours to kiss. And she’d pictured pulling up to Ali’s house tomorrow to pick up Ali for the Valentine’s Day dance, Ali descending the staircase dressed in a gorgeous red silk gown and red satin heels.
PLL: Wanted

Ever so slowly, Ali took a step toward Emily. Her lips quivered. The corners of her eyes were wet. They stared at each other for a static-filled moment, Emily barely breathing. And then, Ali yanked Emily into an empty stall and pressed their bodies close. They kissed and kissed, the world melting away, the music from the dance subsiding until it was a dull echo. After a moment, they pulled back, breathless.
PLL: Wanted

"She wasn't the love of my life or anything." That, of course, was Ali — her Ali. Was it crazy to still crush on a dead girl? Her Ali still had such a hold on her. And when "Courtney" returned, confessed to Emily that she was her real friend, and kissed Emily passionately on the lips, Emily had been in heaven. Now, even though Emily knew, logically, that her Ali had died the night of the seventh-grade sleepover, she still longed for that girl to return once more.
PLL: Twisted

Emily trailed off, thinking about all the dreams she'd had about Real Ali this year. All the flashes of blond hair she swore she'd seen, all the haunting whiffs of vanilla soap she'd smelled. Her firm belief that she was still out there, watching her every move. "I try to think about only the good stuff with Ali and block out what really happened. It's easier that way. So like, in my head, my Ali is still this bubbly, intoxicating girl who had everyone wrapped around her finger ... You remind me of her a little ... In a good way. Nothing fazed her. She was kind of ... amazing."
PLL: Ruthless

The whole thing broke Emily's heart. She knew, logically, that their tormenter wasn't her Ali, the girl she'd adored for years, spent lots of time with, and kissed in the DiLaurentis's tree house at the end of seventh grade. But she couldn't help but dwell on that moment last year when Real Ali had returned, impersonated their Ali, and kissed Emily with such passion. She'd seemed so ... genuine.
PLL: Stunning

For Emily, all roads lead back to Ali. And nothing’s harder to extinguish than an old flame.
PLL: Burned

A knowing smile spread across Iris's face. "You were the one who was in love with her, weren't you?"
PLL: Crushed

the reminders.

“Out of my thoughts! You are part of my existence, part of myself. Estella, to the last hour of my
life, you cannot choose but remain part of my character, part of the little good in me, part of the evil. But,
in this separation I associate you only with the good, and I will faithfully hold you to that always, for you
must have done me far more good than harm, let me feel now what sharp distress I may.”

i love the way you lie
lead me on
almost lover
no love
every stolen promise
take me, i'll follow
sooner or later
a special place for you in my heart
so happy i could die
worn me down
forever and almost always
when you're gone
you're big on happy endings
first one
just a friend
boats and birds
all about us
stolen my heart
my immortal
from the heart
under the sheets

the silence sank like music (on my heart)
and my heart is a monster of sorts
deep down, you know your insides never change
lipsmacker kiss (you're the one that i miss)
don't peek
she was ready, and happy, to be hurtled along to her destruction
maybe you would have been something I'd be good at
take me along
practice makes perfect
i tried to do handstands for you (but every time i fell on you)
i'm going to be your ghost
you've got a part of me, indefinitely
(these girls are) better off in my head
captivated by you
so don’t you go holding out on me
there's still a part of me left for you
there is no happiness like mine
bleeding love
we carve our names into each others hearts
under the red coat
poison and wine
the only exception to the rule of me
the weight of decisions
Fck Yeah, Emily/Alison!
