Chuck and Blair on set (Spoilers)
Back to fashion. I think Eric Damian likes to put B in green coats for some reason. Often I find myself admiring her style and her swag, but I wouldn't really buy it for myself. But I coveted those nude, peep toe, slingback pumps. We've been talking about those nonstop on the Chair thread. I found some decent $100 ones at Macy's online... B's are like $750 (of course).
Personally, I hope you guys never have to go through what we've gone through as a ship. Dair has been protected, favored, and treated with kid gloves. Chair has been beaten, kicked, and run over with an 18 wheeler.
Many of us have started as Chair shippers, so we know what you've been through. It's just it got to the point where you started asking yourself: why am I supporting this writing and the writers insisting that it's epic when it isn't?
It takes a certain stubbornness (not to mention masochism) to continue to ship Chair.
Yes, it does.
Chuck Bass is definitely the writer's favorite chew toy, while Dan's the golden boy. So I guess I expect more out of him, his fans, and Dair shippers.That's not too fair. Chuck Bass has been the center of this show since season 1. Dan had no storyline in season 2 or season 3 and only in season 4 did the writers actually start giving him a storyline people are sort of invested in. And I guess I'm sorry for not living up to your expectations as a Dair fan...there are so many expectations I have to live up to, this one sort of wasn't on a priority list...
ahah lol they look so in love really, especially when they get in the car, it's really like : I can't wait to get in the limo to kiss you again!

Totally, totally disagree about Chuck. Dan was the romantic lead in season 1, the main viewpoint character, our entree into the UES as viewers, and 1/2 of the show's supercouple at the time, Derena. The show didn't elevate Chuck to the same status as Dan or Nate until season 2. How could Chuck be at the center when he wasn't even in every episode? When in the pilot, his mother was actually still living? LOL!
And see, I'm one of those Chair fans who always DID love Dan. So I totally disagree that Dan didn't have a SL in seasons 2 or 3, and bewildered that you think this is the case. Just going by my memory, in season 2, Dan began with the on-again, off-again Derena relationship AND the quest to write a good story. That produced some great scenes, actually, including those with writers he was looking for mentoring from. There was that first awesome Duck scene that people who don't even ship still talk about -- "are you gay?" -- that hinted at the canon Duck tension in the novels. There was his quest to get into Yale on his own merits, which brought in not just the writing SL, but that of his affair with Miss Carr. He won the lead in the senior play, and went to prom with Serena after all. GG was right -- Dan was indeed the ultimate insider.
Early season 3 was totally and completely the Dan show, and it started to set up Dair. Chair fans, even before Dair was a twinkle in anyone's eye, were pissed that once CB were together, they were backgrounded to explore Dan, Blair, Georgina, and Vanessa's time at NYU. In retrospect, that makes sense. As of next ep, Dan will have been in a relationship (or quasi-relationship in G's case) with all three ladies. There were no other guys around to compete, as Chuck was off acting like a 40 year old in the wake of Bart's death, and Nate was relegated to guest star hell (the first season of a pattern). Dan had the Olivia relationship, increasing tension between him and Vanessa, and then started gearing up to compete for a spot at Tisch. And so on.
Dan is Safran's favorite character. He's the alpha beta male. Chair fans get angry about Dan's treatment, but it is what it is... it just needs to be admitted.
Oh well, as if I haven't told you about the pics to come....And it does look to me like Penn's in the background too.
So I totally disagree that Dan didn't have a SL in seasons 2 or 3, and bewildered that you think this is the case.Name 3 storylines that Dan had and that did NOT have anything to do with Serena, Jenny, or any other character but only himself. Every other leading character had those. Except Dan.
With Dan in the background I still feel it may have something to do with Georgina,but really who knows. After seeing the other persons link and hearing some of what Blair said on tape it does not sound like she is to happy to see Chuck but I guess we will see.
