Description:

This series deals with my imaginings of what could happen with the whole Lila drama. I took the title The Great Pretender from the oldies song "The Great Pretender" by the Platters. Now, I did not sit down and re-listen to the whole song, but what stuck out to me was the message that the great pretender was lonely and pretending to do well when things were not okay. I feel like this could apply to Marinette and to Lila. Marinette is obvious because she is pretending to not be hurt by Lila's actions. However, we're starting to see that the obvious pretender, Lila, is dealing with loneliness at home. While this in no way justifies her actions, it allows us to see how her behavior developed.

As always, if you or someone you know is being bullied or treated in a way that you are unsure of, I encourage you to seek help from someone (preferably an adult) that you trust.
