We know how devoted and obsessed ‘shipper fans are when it comes to Pretty Little Liars, but we’ve never seen such an aggressive move before: Emaya ‘shippers sent PLL producer Marlene King tons of pink-and-white pens with a special Emaya plea written on them.

Marlene tweeted the above photos today (May 9), including a close-up of the message written in script on each pen: “We want Maya alive & written back into the show.” Judging from Marlene’s photos, there must be hundreds of them!

Unfortunately for these diehard Emaya fans, ABC Family has already confirmed that Maya (Bianca Lawson) is dead in the press release for Season 3, Episode 1: “It Happened ‘That Night’.” So unless PLL turns into a supernatural show with zombies (which we vehemently oppose), Maya isn’t coming back. Ever.

Then again, we’re sure the writers will figure out a way to include flashbacks so we can at least get the visual satisfaction of seeing Emily and Maya together again, however briefly.

Have fun with all those pens, Marlene!

Catch an all-new Pretty Little Liars when Season 3 premieres on Tuesday, June 5 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
