Gossip Girl > Gossip Girl Chair Tribute Video Contest Finalists: Watch, Vote Now! > Comments Page 2
After watching these videos I remembered why I like DAIR so much more...these videos remind me why I disliked them from the beginning. Their relationship has no basis and is uninteresting!
It's gotta be hard to create a video with almost 5 years of material to work with. There's many great scenes to work with, almost too many to fit into such a short time period. Congrats to all the finalists.
@TVF168 There really are a lot of great Chair centered videos out there with nice themes, music and choice of scenes. It's possible a lot of the more known editors didn't submit, didn't know this was going on or whatever.
Although I'm Ship-Neutral, none of these moved me to tears like the Dair videos did. Either the passion isn't there in the Chair relationship, or it isn't there in the Chair fans (despite comments to the contrary that fill up this website every fricking post).
My basic judging criteria were Choice & Use of Music, Choice & Use of footage to tell their story, and overall emotional feeling as a result of watching said video. That said, I voted for #4 basically by process of elimination. #1,2 & 6: I couldn't finish watching because they were so boring. #5: I couldn't finish because it was so annoying. #3: I finished it but it left me with a great big Question Mark. #4: I finished it and it was decent, nice. Ergo, Winner By Default.
Feasting on this! Let me love you, vidders! Congratulations to the finalists, they're all wonderful videos!
oh how i miss and love my chair. i hope that these videos will show dair-fans how wrong they are. dair can NEVER be what chair are. never will i stop shipping them
Does anyone else love how the writers found a way for Chuck to be romantic while still allowing him to stay true to he is, flaws and all?
The fact that he always lets Blair go, secretly helps her and admires her from afar are things only someone with Chuck's issues would have to do for someone he loves. Its tragic, bittersweet and so "heart-skips-a-beat" romantic.
Hmm, I've seen a lot of other good/better Chair vids, but alas if we must chose from these the first one should win fare and square it was just marvelous
So many great Chuck and Blair videos that capture the beauty and tragedy of their romance. I firmly believe they are going to have a happy ending once the show is done deconstructing them and letting them have their breathing room.
I love the songs used for the first 2, and I think the videos themselves are great. And "The Boy Saw The Comet" is such a great piece of dialogue to use for Chuck and Blair. It works perfectly! I can't decide who to vote for, haha.
I wish I could we have gotten all the great CB vidders to submit the appropriate way, but alas. These are all amazing, anyway!
Now it's time for Derena !
Ehhh, too much wistful in all of these songs. Where was the power ballad? Plus it seemed that almost all of the videos were made during the first two seasons. Were there no good new ones submitted?
I voted for #1 but congrats to all the finalists (and retroactively to all the Dair vid finalists too). Thanks for reminding me why I loved this couple- Ed & Leighton primarily!
@Sam- I think the tragedy in CB's relationship is the major appeal (well in addition to great chemistry and hot sex lol). They're star crossed, always just a bit out of synch. I know Chair fans want them to be happy but I honestly think 4x22 -or something like that - is/was the most appropriate ending for this couple. If the writers can figure out how to quit with the "let's throw sh-t at the wall and see what sticks" schtick they have going on now, the best thing for them to do with Chair is to deconstruct them and re-build them up again somewhere down the line.
I loved the first video because the song though tragic fits their relationship so well. You can see how complex it was and always will be (to some people that makes it epic) and usually with a love like that, it just can't end well. Epic usually equates to tragic so I can understand where the writers are going with their story. You can't deny their love but you can't also deny that it can most probably never end happily.
Blair will always love Chuck but as she said in the last episode it doesn't mean she's in love with him. Listen to the song and its lyrics. Really beautiful song and bumcrackmosh did a great job bringing out the story with the song!! So good!
these videos remind me that people are always saying how chuck has hurt blair but if we remember she has hurt him many times also. I´m not saying the man is a saint but don´t make him the only bad guy in the relationship
I LOVED all of these videos. I have always been a Chair fan since Season 1 and if I am honest I had started to want Dair to happen and be endgame but after seeing these videos it has reminded me what an EPIC couple Chuck & Blair are and I am praying they get back together!
@Where's Waldorf, It would be a little easier if Blair was leaving Nate for Chuck. But its Dan here people. who always be there for whatever she needs.
I think that both Blair and Dan created perfect images of the other in their heads. Dan created Claire and Blair thinks that Dan is a perfect friend or whatever. And when they realize that their images in their heads don't correspond to reality, that's when their relationship will start to fall apart.
At least Chuck loved Blair for what she was and Blair knew the issues Chuck had and tried to help them through them (and imo, she did have a positive impact).
I hope that they will get back together, but before that I would really love to see Blair being independent and have a storyline outside her love life. Something college/career related.
I wish that people would stop arguing over chair/dair and focus on these videos. As someone who made one of these videos i am proud to be up here but for 2 pages there is hardly nothing about the videos just chair/dair arguments! Grow up!!
Even if I am a Dair Fan, I would like to congrats people who made those videos! I really enjoyed it!
It would be a little easier if Blair was leaving Marcus for Dan. But its Chuck here people. Not some guy that was a passing fancy for Blair.
Nair & Cherena
What the....You know what? This is the reason i'm not getting in these threads so often anymore. Even if this was a Rufus&Lily thread it would still turn out to be a Chair vs Dair thread! Of course Dair fans will try to provoke us but there's no effing need to answer back! This is OUR thread for OUR freaking EPIC couple. So instead of getting into pointless fights let's give some credit to the talented users who worked so hard to make these amazing videos!
I hate that i had to choose between all those masterpieces.I loved, loved the fact that the editors weren't afraid to use some of Chair's darkest moments because the fact that C&B were able to overcome them is what gave them their unbeatable dynamic. Let's hope that this beautiful couple's curse will be lifted and they will get the happy ending the deserve (hahaha...guess i'm too into OUAT/with the deference that in GG the EQ is Safran)
it's so obvious these two are meant for each other
Fuck Chair, they are a sick couple
OMG does anyone think that Blair will sneak around with Chuck to help Georgina? Nothing quite brings them together like Georgina. Dan hates Georgina and wouldn't understand why Blair would help her. Eventually he won't like how she keeps secrets and that will come between them?
@Dr. Holland-heard of proportion?Either you made that point in order to be argumentative,or you have no sense of proportion re. the scenes that Chair shared vs. those that Dair did.If the former is the reason,then go ahead on your own since I don’t want to argue.If the latter,then please go back & count the number of episodes/scenes/instances where Chair have been all loved up & romantic & compare that to the same scenes with Dair & do some basic arithmetic, & then you'll see that I made that remark purely based on quantity of screen time that could potentially impact a compilation video.
Dair as a couple is a recent phenomenon.In fact, the writers have added a reciprocal love track only very recently compared to the long time that was devoted to Chair.
Of course I don't blame you for thinking otherwise!The magic of Dair is SO potent, their chemistry SO strong that everybody, including a Chair fan like you, feels that they have been together for much longer
