to much OC over "Dair"
"the declining rates are because blair and chuck havent been together since before christmas!"
The ratings have been declining since episode 2.06 "New Haven Can Wait" with only a couple minor spikes since then.Posted 2/24/2009 5:56:45 PM #
Exactly my point and it is declining because blair and chuck arent together.Posted 2/24/2009 6:00:14 PM #
BassIsAlpha you bring up a lot of great points! And I just wanted to let you know I RESPECT you opinion even if I dont agree with it.
I'm not so sure that Dans just going to simply fall out of love with Serena just because of their parents, because thats something he cant control. and also I'm pretty sure the writers realize that the biggest fan base is Chair and I'm sure Darena is nexy and putting Dan and Blair together with just screw over all those supporters that give them a fair amount of their ratings and I dont think they'd want to do that.Posted 2/24/2009 6:06:09 PM #
You're basically proving my point, what i'm saying is that people are tired of the same shit, it's like this with CB, a love scene or two, where they have sex or kiss passionately, then some subtle remarks about how they feel, usually deflected by insults, then it's back to manipulating and playing games, which either happens because one just got hurt by the other, or it ends up with one of them getting hurt(again, usually blair) it's been the same fucking shit for almost two season, wash, rinse, repeat.(Yeah, I know lame, but I don't give a shit brah)Posted 2/24/2009 6:08:44 PM #
"BassIsAlpha you bring up a lot of great points! And I just wanted to let you know I RESPECT you opinion even if I dont agree with it."
Feeling's mutual then!
"I'm not so sure that Dans just going to simply fall out of love with Serena just because of their parents, because thats something he cant control."
I'm sure it's something he'll just get over completely, just like Chuck is to Blair, Serena is Dan's first true love, so he'll never fully get over her, but IMO their families merging is something they wont survive, which is fine, because they'll turn their love for eachother into a sibling relationship, where they can help eachother without jealousy(down the line somewhere ofcourse)
"and also I'm pretty sure the writers realize that the biggest fan base is Chair and I'm sure Darena is nexy and putting Dan and Blair together with just screw over all those supporters that give them a fair amount of their ratings and I dont think they'd want to do that."
Of course it would leave a lot of fans feeling alienated, but in the end if they want this SHOW(and not just the Chuck and Blair show) to succeed, they might want to let other things happen, to see if they work and make the show better, whether it'd be Dan/Blair becoming an item, or giving a new character a chance to prove him or herself, sometimes shows get worse by sticking to a safe formula(and by this point, i'm guessing Chair is safe, or at least their fans think they are) so something new needs to happen, and the fans need to let it work.Posted 2/24/2009 6:17:02 PM #
i know it like what the hell i watch the show mainly to see chuck and blair and what goin to happen between them but the wtiter will f*** the story up line and put on a diffrent focus or make them have a fight or misundersting cumin frm eitht chuck or blair im like stop playing game and get them together they have already put Dan and Serena together countless times why not chuck and blair it becoming predictable and way, way too drawn outPosted 2/24/2009 6:24:00 PM #

No matter what the writers do, I think most of us are going to watch GG regardless of if we like what couples are together or whats going on, I KNOW I WILL!Posted 2/24/2009 7:07:11 PM #
well..i like their dialogues n stuff...they are funny.. but its cuz of the way they are..once they fall in love ,ts not gonna be that way..blair insultin, being sarcastic about brooklyn? dan judgin anythin blair's character represents..even thou this interaction d definitely soften the edges, is that what we d like? blair waldorf is loved and appreciated the way she is..she will eventually mature..but still..
TRUE LOVE , is when you find the person to love-appreciate you the way you are, not changing-judging it..in true love, one doesnt feel the need to pretend to be someone else..n THAT is CHAIR..
I LOVE DAIR only as fanfics..most f the time fanfics ve one focus-couple wise..i mean you can isolate the rest n not think too much of other couples objectively..so it is just dif. than the show..if it happens its like they re hooking everyone up..i just dont like it on tv shows, how they exchange partners over n over..then where is the dept of love shown b/n the core couple? it fades away by the time..
I really respect every1's opinion but i really cannot understand those CHUCK-JENNY, CHUCK-VANESSA, CHUCK-SERENA, DAN-BLAIR SHIPERS...what is next ? NATE-CHUCK? cuz they are bros in rl?i mean these vent even shared many scenes toghther n they ve fanvideos n stuf..you can see that those videos ve the same scenes with a dif. background music..cuz honestly the total min they share on the screen together is hardly enough to create one..
so to sum up , i should say yes in theory these 2 char. ve the potential to become a solid couple..but only in theory..cuz once they are in love, the dynamic of their relationship - the way that we like it- will be ruined for good..also the characters ll go through a process that should be dealt in long term * get mature n stuff* (development) would be more rushed..n the depth of the love for core couples might get damaged...
besides , different worlds-opposites are supposed to be dan-serena, and chuck-blair are supposed to be the one couple where the 2 cannot help but be in love aganist their dreams- expectations...once they combine these two, what is left? insest relationships?Posted 2/24/2009 7:12:13 PM #
"well..i like their dialogues n stuff...they are funny.. but its cuz of the way they are..once they fall in love ,ts not gonna be that way.."
Why wouldn't it be? it's not like they're playing games, manipulating, or hurting eachother if they had the dialogue they have with eachother now, if they were in a relationship, they tease eachother mostly about shallow things, it's mostly about where they're from, and if you watch their scenes, especially the hallway scene in "Bad News Blair", or most of their scenes in "Pret-a-poor J" you see that they find something more in eachother, I mean if Dan can open up to Blair in the hallway scene, and she can open up to him in the cafe scene about her and Chuck so much, they obviously trust eachother, and if she tells Chuck that Dan's basically more of a human being than he'll ever be, and Dan can defend Blair when Vanessa was insulting her like he did, then they obviously see eachother as more than "Brooklyn boy" or "UES girly evil".
"TRUE LOVE , is when you find the person to love-appreciate you the way you are, not changing-judging it..in true love, one doesnt feel the need to pretend to be someone else"
Dan and Blair are both looking for that, and IMO they can find that with eachother.
"I really respect every1's opinion but i really cannot understand those CHUCK-JENNY, CHUCK-VANESSA, CHUCK-SERENA, DAN-BLAIR SHIPERS...what is next ?"
Just because they see some spark or promise in a pairing, doesn't mean they're crazy or anything, ofcourse i'm not surprised that all those pairings had either Chuck or Blair with someone else, so I understand why you don't like them, but IMO whereas neither of those other pairings make little to no sense, Dan/Blair just does to me, it has ever since I started watching the show, especially since 1.04, this is just when I thought "hmm, those two are going to get together one day, they obviously have something for eachother" now that my other friend who's a Dair shipper got me reading some of their fanfiction, and that i've thought about more, I can really see them being a great couple.
"so to sum up , i should say yes in theory these 2 char. ve the potential to become a solid couple..but only in theory..cuz once they are in love, the dynamic of their relationship - the way that we like it- will be ruined for good"
Theory is almost all we have now, despite the actors who play them obviously working well together, thus showing a spark between the characters, they haven't been allowed to go further YET, hopefully they will at some point(maybe the play is the start?) but it's funny you say that about the dynamic of their relationship fading, because that's what I see happening with Chair, the relationship you like between will have to go for good basically, if they ever really wanna chance at being in a healthy relationship.Posted 2/26/2009 6:25:15 AM #
