TV Fanatic Staff Selection, Take 5: Chair for Best Teen Couple!

by at . Comments

Welcome to the latest opportunity for a TV Fanatic staff member to defend one of our Best Teen Couple nominees. If you missed previous editions, so far...

Now, it's up to Leigh Raines to pull up a Chair. Take it away, Leigh, and best of luck...

Who is the best teen couple on television, this website is asking? Sorry, Forwood fans, but the answer is clear.

Look, I’m an adult, so I’m not going to sit here and say that Blair has never had chemistry with another person. Yes, even Lonely Boy got some face time, but - with apologies to Dair supporters - I just feel more of a friendship vibe between those two.

So let’s agree to disagree and let me preach to all you Chair fiends out there. I need your voting to go VIRAL. Let’s face it, Blair Waldorf doesn’t settle for second or third place. Therefore, I present to you a love letter to a relationship that’s five years in the making:

The Chair defense rests.

Dear Chair,
            In the beginning, you entertained us with a friendship fueled by a mutual love for schemes and takedowns. Then, a certain champagne-doused evening, with a striptease at Chuck’s burlesque club, led to hot virginity-losing limo sex. Not even Blair’s attempt at confession could put the fire out that sparked between you two that night (twice, if I recall correctly.) Since then it’s been magnetic, electrifying, bewitching, tantalizing, scintillating and whatever other adjective you want to throw my way.
            I’m not going to lie and say these past few years have been the smoothest ride, but then again nobody ever said a great love was easy. They just said it was worth it. So what if it took you guys a few years to say those three words? What was that Chuck said during his best man speech at the end of season one? Oh yes, the importance of perseverance.
            I can’t give you up, because you two can’t give each other up. Chuck, I blubbered like a baby when you showed up at Blair’s, crying after your father’s funeral and she held your hand all through the night. When you wanted to lose yourself around the world or jump off of a building, who saved you? Blair. Against everything in her being, Blair met you at that Paris train station to stop you from running away. That was a beautiful scene.
            Blair, you two may have not been together when you didn’t get into Yale, but Chuck knew he couldn’t let you spiral with scum like Carter Baizen. He applied to Columbia without you knowing. He reminded you when you were floundering at NYU that he wasn’t Chuck Bass without Blair Waldorf. Then, there was that time he took a bullet to protect the ring he hoped to give to you one day.
            This week's ending scene - with Chuck’s overdue apology - probably sealed the deal for me. Blair, you want to love Louis, but love isn’t something that can be forced. Chuck, your apology might be too little too late, but it shows you’re growing into a better man.
            You were both too immature, conniving, and narcissistic to be together in the past. That’s why it didn’t work. But I, like so many of your viewers, know that you two are end game. So Chuck, could you please go retrieve that gorgeous Harry Winston rock and save Blair from the dullest Prince there ever was? Let’s get this show on the road kids. As Blair herself said at the end of season four: “The great loves are the crazy ones.” And you two are certifiably, undeniably and perfectly crazy... for each other.
Sincerely,
Chair fans everywhere

Oh my goodness. Blair and Chuck are the most perfect, beautiful couple I have ever seen. Ever. They complete each other, and they bring out the best of each other. I will always envy their relationship. They are hilarious together, and so intimate. I hope they will get back together because their love is too strong to ignore. They are always there for one another, and they have changed due to their relationship. Blair and Chuck are so interesting IT'S AMAZING ♥ Chair -I have sooooo much more to say, this isn't even HALF of it. I could go on, and on about those two.

I like how @Anonymous ran for the hills. Lol I rest my case.

In no fanbase is everybody 'normal' or 'crazy', there is a mix in all of them, so this arguement is pointless and stupid as nobody can win. @Anon Who are you to tell people who to support? And again who are you to tell people who or what to see as a role model? Why do fans feel the need to make other people 'ship' who they want them to? It just makes no sense. Regardless of what you say people are going to do what they want so just let them be. Chair fans especially (and some other fanbases) have legitimate reasons for supporting their couple, and those reasons aren't going to change because people like you come out with single-minded comments like 'Supporting Chair is a big mistake'. And it is NOT a fact that these relationships don't last, that is just your opinion on the matter. I agree the way they were probably wouldn't have lasted but it is becoming clearer that the writers are changing Chuck into the man that she needs, so therefore this relationship could most definitely work in the long run.
Bottom line is why come into a chair post just to annoy people, its unnecessary and totally out of order. And frankly you just made yourself look like a bitter infant. I find it comical that fans have to bash Chair (or even Dair for that matter) just to make themselves feel better or to get noticed. Lots of people love chair including the writers, that much is clear.(That's not to say they don't love other couples too but they have invested so much in this couple that it would be unprofessional to just abandon it, never mind that it would make them look like liars after all the comments about waiting for the 'finish line' etc). So either enjoy GG the way it is or just dont watch it, no one is forcing you to either watch the show or like any couple.

I love hearing from other chair shippers as we come onto sites like this to support our couple...please go to your sites, dair shippers (a), make your comments there, and leave us alone. Then maybe we chair shippers won't have to get so insulted and return the abuse you throw our way when you invade our terf. Yes, we know your opinions and don't care, which is why we come onto CHAIR sites to discuss our favorite couple...why are you here???

To all the Dair fans who think they are above the Chair fandom immaturity: The poll speaks for itself.

Reading this chair letter...i had goosebumps remembering those moments...and yeah let's prove to the group of anonymous(es) by winning this poll..i'm chair true and through

Dudes, this is why there is no good discussion here. Anytime there are legitimate hits against the Chair fandom, the rude and immature crazies come out of the woodworks. Stop swearing and have a discussion. It is super annoying. Also, I'm sure that someone will comment and say that I am playing a victim, but go look at the Dair poll and see how many people cursed at Chair fans and now go through these 9 soon to be 10 pages and see how many people cursed or insulted Dair fans. There have been some really excellent discussion in tvfanatic in the past. But it seems like Chair it's all the past now...zing!

Totally agree with Waiting for a chairy tale!
+Thats the coolest name ever!:D

Gossip Girl Quotes

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

Blair: Fashion is the most powerful art there is. It's movement, design and architecture all in one. It shows the world who we are and who we'd like to be. Just like your scarf suggests that you'd like to sell used cars.
Dan: Vanessa gave me this scarf.
