Gossip Girl > TV Fanatic Staff Selection, Take 5: Chair for Best Teen Couple! > Comments Page 3
The best TV couple, Blair & Chuck it's crap. Joey and Pacey is the best still.
@Shay, great post! It's clear who Blair loves and that's Chuck. Chuck loves her too and both have deeply loved the other for years. They may screw up but they are in love and no one can deny that. Dan is in lust as he has been with several women before.
Loved this "letter" =) And I already voted!!
When you think of your life long partner, do you think of the word love? Most people do. Of course, some of those relationships started out with lust, or even with an infatuation. So when you meet someone that catches your eye, how do you know if it’s love, or if it’s lust, or if it’s infatuation?
Another way of looking at this is questioning whether a solid relationship can be built on lust or an infatuation. Love is generally understood as being unconditional in nature. If you truly love someone you love them through the good times as well as the bad. You are not only willing to, but you want to grow old with them. Therefore, the thought of them having gray hair and wrinkles is not a turn off, as long as they are by your side when the time of old age comes.
Love is ever lasting and pure. It is what we strive for. Lust on the other hand is desiring someone sexually. So of course it is possible to lust for someone that you love. But you can also lust for someone that you don’
That would be one of my wishes for their reunion. I love the idea of them finally realizing how happy they can make each other. I do think it has to come into play as one of the reasons they reunite.
Chuck can truly make Blair happy because he accepts and admires every aspect of her. Whether light, dark, or in-between Chuck understands and acknowledges every shade of Blair, and instead of chastising or judging her more darker attributes, he sympathizes and realizes no one is perfect. Blair has trouble learning to accept and forgive herself for past mistakes. She has yet to learn that perfection is an impossibility and stumbles are only natural in life. As vigorous as she tries to straighten out the crinkles within her life, a seemingly smooth and flawless future is something no human can hold within their grasp.
Humphrey may understand Blair intellectually, but it’s Chuck Bass that understands the deep inner workings of her mind. He knows all her dreams, and aspirations, an
@Maribells: after reading all your comments, I do really agree with what you say about Blair and Chuck and your perception of the show. I wouldn't turn on the TV to watch a reflexion of an average couple, and yet not even, Dan and Blair are no more than friends. The only thing we can recognise them is the ambiguity Dan is experiencing in this feelings since he has a crush for Blair (a crush that she has the good taste to not reciprocate). Anyway, Blair and Chuck are epic. Most probably that in reality their story wouldn't turn the same way (and if everything that happened to the characters in GG hapened to a same bunch of people in reality, that would be surprising). But here we are in a show. Beside one has to be blind to think that DB has a better magic than CB. Ed and Leigh really have a special thing on screen every single time they interact. None of the other confrontation have the same electricity.
Megan..i think i didn't say a bad thing about Chair here..
i'm DB fans now.yes (you can see in my pict).but in season 1 and 2 i love Chair..and i know this article is good..i just suggest about Chair picture..why DB article use 3 picture and Chair just 1 video..i don't know if you like piano sex more than train scene..that's just a suggestion.
i feel bad about how the staff here realese the article.they change..and none of chair or dair get "Take 1" to avoid ship war.
Lolita, you seem like a bitter DB fan, really.And talk about the pot calling the kettle black, why are you here advocating DB on a CB article? As usual, it's DB fans trying to play the victim when they do this and worse everywhere else. Chuck and Blair are doing really well on the poll, killing DB, and this is a better write up than the DB one because, well, Chuck and Blair are a better couple. Go back to the DB article if you love them so much and please stop whining because you don't like Leigh's amazing write up. You guys astound me with your endless hypocrisy.
i'm sorry..why this article didn't put any picture of Chair epic moment from season 1? why use piano sex? i thought that's mean hate sex..or wahtever..you can take picture from season 4, just take the train scene..i love that scene..and it's absolutely epic.
i don't know why but i feel this looks pathetic..
first Dair article didn't put any "Take" from the title..and now they put "Take 3" and for Chair "Take 5"..it looks like Tvfanatic doesn't want to get biased from making article..and about contest video..looks like the staff said "Dare to Dair" and chair fans comment like this site is ddairshipper..and staff would say "Dair for now, but we will make another round for another ship too. Chair. next time"
for the next time,,how about not making any best couple poll..or poll about who's the best man for Blair Waldorf..or anyone..this war ship should end immediatly before turn to war world 4.
Go Leigh! Chuck and Blair are my favorites!
Bland fan (both of you) DB are a typical teen romance, not Chuck and Blair. I laugh everytime someone says that CB are. Truly hysterical. Why do you think CB were in Entertainment Weekly's top 3 of the year? Why are they recognized as a great pairing of all the couples to be on tv? It's because they are original.
Why would I want to watch a "realistic" pairing that watches movie (oops, not anymore, though), eats pizza (oh, they don't anymore), and probably braids each others hair. You guys are jealous because you know who will end up together. It's written in a simple 1 minute scene from Monday night.
And @wow why are you watching this show at all when you know it's always going to end in Chuck and Blair?
DB fans, you're attempts at your couple sounding great bore me to death. Much like your couple.
Thank-you Maribells for saying pretty much exactly what I wanted to only better. And Lol at the husband comment. It's like you are in my brain!
But you are ok with underage drinking, threesomes, and hazing? It's Gossip Girl people, not the Brady Bunch. Chair are DRAMA, the show is a DRAMA. I watch it for DRAMA. To me Dair is intelligent comedic releif. If this were a comedy, I would be all over them, but it's not.
Why on earth would anyone be threatened by realism? If I wanted realism, I could just videotape my husband and I eating takeout and watching a movie together.
What makes Chuck and Blair special is that they're heightened reality, they're the sort of epic romance that only exists in TV and movies- and that's exactly why they're so compelling. They're not just some average, humdrum couple, they have the kind of love that transcends compatibility and shared interests. Their love for each other is so intense that every other potential romantic pairing for either of them simply pales in comparison.
If anyone is basing their own relationships on a TV show about spoiled-rotten, emotionally-damaged Manhattan teenagers, they've got a lot more problems than just liking Chair.
When you put Chuck and Blair in the same room it's like magic.
Dair can't even compare to Chair. I like the friendship between Dan and Blair, and really enjoy their scenes.
there is no spark between them. Like, at all.
Wow really? People really think Chuck/Blair are voted best teen couple?? Really? It's one of the most abusive and toxic relationships that I've ever seen on television. It's a horrible inspiration for teens to base their relationships. Dair forever
I am not jealous of Chair fans. I feel bad because it is a typical movie/hollywood relationship that wouldn't work out in the long run. Read Brideshead Revisited, Rebecca or A Streetcare Named Desire if you want to see what happens to "a love so intense and all-consuming." It's just archetypal screenwriting that isn't inspired or new. I have not always been a Dair fan either, I just never liked Chair and was unsatisfied with Blair's relationships until I saw the mental chemistry and intrigue that began in season four.
I think Chair fans like to downplay Dair because they are threatened by the realism.
Awwwww, all of these awesome comments warm my Chair-starved heart. This is an amazing fanbase for an amazing couple!
@Maribells They only try to downgrade Chair because they know they will never get the scenes Chair gets and that Dair will never come close to being as amazing as Chuck and Blair are. Jealousy is an ugly shade and it's why Dair fans hate on Chair fans all the time. I just laugh at their attitudes because I know who will end up together and who will be left in the dust.
Blair and Chuck are meant for each other...
Go Chair go.
Who has seen this kind of chemistry with any other couples? I watch a lot of tv shows and I mean a lot..and I don't see the powerful chemistry between Chuck and Blair anywhere else. They should win. BLAIR CHUCK FOR THE WIN!!!!(says it like if she was on top of horse going for war...against BLOUIS.)
Omfg! Just saw the canadian promo its blair that chuck kisses and its followed by a slap and chuck says "I needed to kiss her to set her free"... Wtf is going on O.O
It always cracks me up with you guys try to downplay Chuck and Blair's relationship as "just sex", despite the number of lovely, emotionally-laden, romantic scenes they've gotten over the years. Heck, even in 5x06, they had a gorgeous, heartfelt scene chock full of chemistry, with no sex in sight.
I get that you want to make it all about sex and then dismiss sex as irrelevant (because God knows DB don't have that kind of hotness), but just because Chuck and Blair bring the sexy doesn't mean the other feelings aren't there. If anything, their love borders on unhealthy simply because it's so intense and all-consuming.
