Hi! I usually don't read your thread but I was a bit interested by what you guys who ship Dan and Blair thought after this episode for once. A few pages away you said that probably Chair fans are not going to hate Dan anymore because he helped Chuck and Blair, and maybe it would make Dan more acceptable for more fans, etc.... Also you said Chair fans are always into Derena ship because it serves them. I just wanted to point out that you're not necessary right. I hated Dan more than ever in last episode because I can't stand the way he is with Blair. It's just the fact he has feeling for her, and he is all acting like 'I care more for her happiness than mine'. To me it's just a lame copy of what Chuck has been going through this season. The more writers are going to try to make us stomach Dan, the more I'm going to threw him up. It won't become acceptable, it will just become unbearable, at least from my point of view. Beside, like you've guessed by now, I don't like Dan, at all. It goes back to S1. I've never had interest in him, but at least before he wasn't bothering me because he was involved in other thread that I had not interest for. For that matter, althought I'd like to see Blair and Chuck together, and therefore I'm a chair fan mostly, I'm not into a Derena relationship because it would serve my opinion. I think it's unfair for their fan base to say that. Serena or any other character for that matter deserves better than Dan in my opinion. He will always be the annoying, judmental douche I've always find him to be. So just to say, that you should be careful in your assumptions about what people we'll end up thinking. Your ship will happen, because that's the way writers want to go and it's good for you. They acknowledge you and want to please you as well. It's fair. The risk is that a lot of people might not follow this, contrary to what some of you might think will happen. And in my opinion, Dan and Blair will probably attract some more fans because it's cute, easy, Blair seems happy, because she won't be with Chuck who has screwed up many times, because it's new, or whatever the reason... but will it be enough to just counterbalance the loss of those who don't picture Dan with Blair or thos who ship Chuck and Blair?... that is the question. And I'm still very surprised that writers foresee a S6, especially if they go down that road. Sorry for intervening here, it's a first and a last. I just wanted to react to what I read before because I thought it wasn't necessary right or fair for those who really ship Derena (not me) or those who really can't stand Dan (me), whoever he is with. Cheers.
