well i just checked the no parking sign. Is it a night shoot? it says 10 PM. I don’t really know how to read those signs.
Nevertheless, i’m at work and i can’t go to the set maybe until somewhere like 4 PM.
If we haven’t gotten any info on the shooting it probably means they haven’t started yet. Well i’m not sure how much info we have because i haven’t been online in 2 days. I have no idea what’s going with set infos/spoilers etc..
What i can promise you is that if i can find one person to corroborate that the set is open, i will go there maybe around like 3:30-4:00 PM and i can also promise that if i go i’ll stay till the end of the shoot and that could be 8-9 hours, as long as the actors are there.
Well, that’s what i’ll say. If you know someone who’s on the set and reporting already, you can let me know who that person is and i can ask further questions.
But i really need to have some information before i go on set. thanks
so basically it’s just an exact rehash of 4.09… because apparently 2 seasons wasn’t enough for them to move forward at all since then
i’m not really sure what’s going on. I really can’t tell. Those hotel room scenes where they ‘supposedly’ make the pact abt spending time apart, i don’t know if it’s exactly the night of the Casino if they happen to sleep together. It’s possible they may jump into it and then afterwards, after regaining their critical thinking abilities, they decide to spend time apart bc Chuck is not ready to give his heart away just yet. Not that he wouldn’t. Not that he would be pushing her away but it’s understandable that after the hurt he suffered he would need sometime to give into the idea of allowing Blair fully back into his heart. And you know how Chuck and Blair operate on a forever basis. If they do something, it’s forever. It’s like all or nothing with them.
I can understand that. But why the promise ring. I don’t really like the idea of it. It’s such a small step. I want CB to take the big step or no step at all. I don’t like the idea of a promise ring. To me it’s not grandiose enough for CB. I want an engagement or i want a real conversation about why they can’t get engaged just yet. But i want them together. I don’t want them to make any promises of being together in the future. Either they decide to be together right there and then or they agree to be together but they’re going to do their own thing first, but there’s still this solid commitment that they are locked in. I don’t know. The back and forth is tiring me out.
Because I know CB love each other. You can’t convince me otherwise. I know Sara Goodman loves those “I love you but i can’t be with you rn” themes as she wrote 2x23, 4x09, 5x11 ect… And i was scared of her being the new EP. I just for the love of God want her to just let CB be together. They are 21 years old. Srsly why can’t two 21 year old be together when they already have every reason to be. Just let CB be freaking happy. Just let them have their fun.
Question: Blair has been wearing a ring on a necklace in all the Gossip Girl location pictures this season. Any idea why? —Kayla Ausiello: I’m guessing it’s a symbol of the special pact she makes with Chuck in the premiere, but I could be wrong. (In case you’re wondering, said agreement involves them getting their personal crap together before committing to each other for good.)
Have you ever read something that killed you inside?
Like a text message or someone’s status. Everything was going fine until you accidentally came across something you didn’t want to read. Or found out something you were better off not knowing. It’s almost as if it was posted just to purposely hurt you. But you constantly read it over and over again to torture yourself. It sucks how one little thing can ruin your whole day.
haha. i was just watching a documentary about the Congolese people and it made me really sad and really emotional and i creyed everywhere, and i just feel really weird and sad. but i am okay. It’s just some days i’m more emotional than others.
yeah if anything it was wilmer valderama’s fault lol. but honestly i don’t think many people will even see this video so i dont think this really matters in the long run. plus i mean ed’s video he was in wasn’t that great either and no one cares.
well, i wasn’t making a big deal out of it or anything. I’m not saying anybody’s to blame or anything. It’s just a music video and it’s someone’s creative expression. There’s no blaming this or that. You either like it or you don’t. when i said people, i was referring to people who already know Leighton or other members of the group. It was just a little confession about being a Leighton fan because I know how people have reacted to her music videos before. It’s really not a big deal. I was just saying. I will just enjoy the gifs and there’s nothing to it.
isn’t one of the members of the band a really close friend of hers? that’s probably why she did it… if people can’t understand it it’s their problem XD
Yes, the girl singing, Vanessa Curry is her friend for a long time. And one of the members of the group, Shahine Ezell is Leighton’s very good friend. She called him her best friend on the HTC summer sessions. And i think he’s Leighton’s main producer. So i think she did it for her friends. I think she likes to help out her friends in that way.
Lol, i guess if people don’t understand it, it’s their problem. But i don’t think Leighton deserves hate either especially since it isn’t her video. I just hope people are fair to her, however, you know.
I’ll hate on it for you so you don’t have to wait lol. That video was awful. It’s not her fault though- she looked amazingly gorgeous. It was just a crappy music video and song… but all music videos are crappy now so whatever.
Erin bb, perfectly understandable. I only maybe saw this video like 30 minutes ago you know so it’s i’m still understanding it as we speak. However I know how people react to Leighton and pop music. However, it’s not her song so i don’t think she should be getting the criticism for it in case people don’t like it. I’ve already seen some harsh criticism of her. Her role was to be the actress in the video and i think she did as she was supposed to. But this is not her video so i hope people ease up. Leighton gets enough hate as it is. However, i hope most people will appreciate the video for what it is and see Leighton’s role for what it is. She’s neither the singer nor the creative director.
“Why should women be paid equal to men? Men have been in the working world a lot longer and deserve to be paid at a higher rate. Heck, I’m a working mom and I’m not paid a dime. I depend on my husband to provide for me and my family, as should most women… and if a woman does work, she should be happy just to be out there in the working world and quit complaining that she’s not making as much as her male counterparts. I mean really, all this wanting to be equal nonsense is going to be detrimental to the future of women everywhere. Who’s going to want to hire a woman, or for that matter, even marry a woman who thinks she is the same, if not better than a man at any job. It’s almost laughable. C’mon now ladies, are you with me on this?”—
Ann Romney, wife of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney
I like what you just told the anon. Over time I have have to say I came to the same conclusion you came to with Blair and 3x17.
Yes. As a Blair fan, this is how i’m able to interpret her after much analysis. What happened in 3x17 will always be horrific but sometimes one can step back and look at the situation arbitrarily. It’s not all one person’s fault at the end of the day.
And the people who choose not to hold Blair accountable for any of it don’t want to really see who she is and they’ll have this idealized version of her that’s not really her.
However, what came out of 3x17 was forgiveness. It’s the weight behind all of the love declarations they throw at each other. They’ve already proven it.
awwwwwwww thx 4 the Penn post! my opinion of chair fans improved greatly !))) all i always real by them is hate hate hate & more ott hate. Great that are normal cb fans out there!
I don’t know where you formed your opinions of Chair fans, your sources are selling us short.
There’s bad in both side of the fandom. But me, i tell it like it is. Can’t speak for everyone. However, maybe you should get to know a few more chair fans, vary your opinions of us
As for Penn, what i wrote is my experience of having met him. i have no reason to extend any show-related opinion i have to a real life person. It wouldn’t make any sense. I respect all the actors. And my experience with Penn was a good one.
"Blair didn’t necessarily asked Chuck to pay her dowry and almost bankrupt himself, and neither had Chuck asked her to go see his uncle " Okay, but that's not really true. Blair actually specifically asked Chuck NOT to pay her dowry and Chuck DID want her to sleep with Jack. He bought the dress, played her weak points, he all but "asked" her by leading her to that place. That was his intent. Those are completely different IMO.
well i knew i’d probably get a question about that as i was writing.
Yes Chuck had psychologically manipulated her. I’ve admitted that a thousand times perhaps, but if Blair had put herself first, regardless of anything, she would not have gone up to that hotel suite.That’s the context i’m using. Black on white, Blair walked herself to Jack’s waiting arms.
here’s the conversation.
C: I’m sorry, but no one forced you to go up there.
B: I forced myself for you.
C: you didn’t even know
B (frustrated): I know….I just
Why? why would you force yourself for him? what about what you are doing to yourself (I have several arguments about this which i don’t need to reiterate here)
For me, as a Blair fan, that’s really hard to take. I had to go into her mind to really understand what brought her to that place. She said she forced herself for him. She did something for him she was unwilling to do but she pressured herself anyway. And then when Chuck mentions that she didn’t even know about the agreement with Jack, she gets all frustrated and flustered because she knows she really can’t blame him for that part of her actions. She really has herself at this point. This is what i was analyzing.
No matter how many arguments you make against Chuck, ultimately, it’s Blair who got dressed in secrecy, knowing fully that what she was doing was wrong, yet she proceeded to do it. If Jack had taken off her clothes she would have slept with him for a damn hotel. She put the hotel above herself in the first place. And she put Chuck’s happiness way above everything else. Can Chuck really be blamed for her choosing to do that? No matter how much he knew her, he couldn’t psychologically manipulate her without her willingness to sacrifice even herself. As troubling as it is, we all have to admit, Blair willingly put Chuck first. Chuck didn’t necessarily manipulate her to put him first. And that’s the point i was making.
In the aftermath, she didn’t like who she’d become. She felt so much shame because of herself. Because of what she allowed herself to become, not because of what Chuck made her become.
I don’t like who i’ve become with you.
I don’t like who i’ve become because of you.
I don’t like who you’ve made me into.
Her P.O.V is clear in that scene. The Unblaireable Lightness of Being is the best Blair episode of season 3. I feel like i get her completely.
Yes, she asked Chuck not to pay the dowry. That’s very true and he paid it ( in secret) hoping no one ever finds out, especially not her. She made the reckless decision of starting a relationship while still married and she would have to be bound to Louis for a year or her family would go bankrupt. The act is completely selfless on Chuck’s part and unmotivated, only when her happiness is concerned. He wants her to be free and whoever she chooses it love with that freedom is up to her. His heart is broken because of her but he wants her to be free. He wants her to have complete freedom to be who she is and be nothing other than she is. That’s how much he loves her, at his own expense.
No Blair did not psychologically manipulate him. But just like she had tried to save his hotel out love, her was paying her freedom out of love. And she never wanted him to find out, and he never wanted her to find out.
At least Blair was doing it for someone she knew she had at the end of the day. Chuck didn’t have her but he still prevented her mother from going bankrupt because if he hadn’t paid the dowry that’s what would have happened. I will retain that no one aksed Chuck to pay the dowry and put Blair first the way he did. He has no right to reproach her for it or hold it above her head like a guilt chip. But that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be acknowledge as something selfless.
I mean the only reason Dan and Blair were able to freely express their faux-love on the Met Steps or at Salons or at the New York Public Library was because Chuck had paid her dowry.
Maybe Chuck had manipulated Blair in 3x17, however not without her willingness to make that sacrifice. But in 5x19 Blair had already self-sabotaged by stepping out in public with Dan which she knew was against her agreement with the Grimaldis. She was very passive about it. It was eerie even for me when she shook hands with Georgina. Out of the goodness of his heart, Chuck absolved her of consequences for those very idiotic actions, please someone throw him in a fire.
Here are my main hopes for S6 as a Blair fan: I want to see her have ambition again. It's nice to see her wanting to help Chuck, but not if it's at the cost of her own goals. Nor should Chuck want that for her. I'd think and hope they've both changed enough to see how badly that turned out for them last time. Also, I want to see Chuck put Blair over BI. I hope they're not secret just to help him and only because he wants to for his business. That would feel weird to me.
Well i want the same thing for Blair as well.
I don’t know what gives you the impression that her ambitions will be marginalized to prioritize Chuck’s. We’ve seen this story before and it’s been one of the main injuries done to their relationship. I absolutely do not see why the writers would go there again. It’s completely counter-intuitive. At least one person on that round table would have to realize their is something grossly déja vu about this.
I don’t really see a reason to worry about Blair’s ambitions because the writers already set up that storyline in 5x24. We know Blair has agreed to take over the company even before she decided to go find Chuck at the Empire that night. So in that sense she already put herself first.
But will Chuck put her first? The thought of the opposite is almost laughable to me because if season 5 was good for anything it was at proving that. We saw Chuck put Blair first. We saw Chuck wanting her to be free regardless of who she chooses to love. in 5x14 we saw Chuck tell her “I’d do anything for you. I just want to be with you.” That is the manifestation of unconditional love so I don’t really see a question of Chuck putting her first yes or no? I think Chuck has already proven that she comes first. That not having put her first had been the worst mistake of his life. He wants her to be happy no matter how that’s achieved. And those are not just words anymore, they are his actions in season 5.
If we’re taking a look at what happened in 5x24, perhaps you may have a question. But what happened in 5x24 for me (after several rewatch) is not about putting Bass Industries over Blair. I’ve thought about it a lot as a Blair fan. And i’ve thought about it as a Chuck fan and I think Blair understood exactly what was going on in that scene and it wasn’t about Chuck putting Bass Industries over her. And it wasn’t about putting her first either. It was about putting HIMSELF first because sometimes being able to love someone demands it.
if we can understand Blair doing what she did in 4x09, it is no different than what happened in the finale. People are quick to label Chuck as a misogynistic narcissist of sorts and the double standard is just incredibly ridiculous. Did 4x09 mean that Blair was putting her POWERFUL WOMAN career before Chuck? Did that mean she loved her POWERFUL WOMAN career more than she loved Chuck? I’ll bet most people would readily say no in defense of Blair yet will never give Chuck that courtesy. And i would agree with these people about Blair because that wasn’t the case with 4x09. What 4x09 really meant was that Blair was putting HERSELF first, not that she was putting her career above Chuck, which is exactly how it’s supposed to be. She’s supposed to put herself first. She’s supposed to define herself first, especially after just risen from the fallout of having put someone else completely above her and having lost her worth in the end. She’s supposed to define her own worth (see Chuck’s logic in 5x24).
The latter half of season 3, she had put Chuck first and we all saw how tragically that ended up working out for her. Even if there was no tragedy to speak of, it was still wrong how much of herself she had willingly given up for him. She ended up not liking herself too much at the end. Was this directly because of him? No it wasn’t. She’d acknowledged that she was accountable for turning into who she had become. “I forced myself for you.” Even though he hadn’t even asked her to. She had devoted her entire purpose to his cause and it clearly wasn’t healthy.
So i do not see how 5x24 could be unhealthy in that sense either because it reinforced everything that 4x09 was in acting as a rectification of 3x17-3x18. 5x24 is the same conflict for Chuck and the way she had forced herself for him is the same way Chuck admitted that he had put her first and she bet against him. Of course he should put her first but not before himself, that’s where the discrepancy lies. Blair didn’t necessarily asked Chuck to pay her dowry and almost bankrupt himself, and neither had Chuck asked her to go see his uncle but they had both done things that when contemplated introspectively had led them to see how horribly they were willing to give up on themselves for the other.
Chuck hadn’t really put himself first that whole year and Bart had put it into perspective for him. Him not wanting to be Mr. Blair Waldorf, is not about Bass industries and being insubordinate by professional standing or money. Him not wanting to be Mr. Blair Waldorf is about being Chuck Bass, which he told her. “I’m Chuck Bass.” And it’s not meant in a context of superiority, it’s meant in the context of identity. He has to remind himself of who he is because he had allowed himself to get lost with waiting for her to come back to him for a whole year.
He says, “Now i have nothing.” and she says “you have me” and he says ‘That’s not enough”. Well that part is true too because it’s not like Chuck is enough for Blair either. The idea of one person being enough for another is so unconditional and so indefinite and it rebukes the idea of ‘self’. one person could never be enough for another person. A person can be enough for him/herself but never for another person. Chuck needs himself to be able to be good enough for anyone else and at that moment he’s not so sure where he is as a person. And yes it has partly to do with Bass Industries because he had built up this company and it had started to give him a definition of himself in a lot of ways. It was proof that he had succeeded on his own. It was proof that he accomplished something. It wasn’t just materialistic validation, it was also personal to him - validated his person, existence. It was this abstract concept of a ‘future’. Maybe he didn’t know what his future would hold but there was always this comforting idea that he had secured it and he could envision himself very far into it. Even if he couldn’t see the other things, there was a crisp image of himself in it. Now Bart had unexpectedly taken it away. It was a blur and he couldn’t see himself in it anymore, he couldn’t locate the real Chuck Bass, neither in the present nor the future. It has got to be a frustrating position to be in. So yeah, he walked away from Blair because he needed to be Chuck Bass. I don’t necessarily see anything wrong with that. What would staying have done? What did he think he had to offer them at that point anyway.
So i wouldn’t worry about Chuck putting BI over Blair. If anyone knows not to do that, it’s Chuck Bass. I believe that Blair wants the best for Chuck and would be willing to make meager sacrifices for him, even way bigger sacrifices as long as she wouldn’t be compromising herself, which i don’t believe she would. And i’m sure if Blair disagrees with an idea, Chuck would just figure a different strategy. He wouldn’t insist that she does something she’s not happy with. I think the only reason Blair and Chuck are acting whatever way they’re acting is because they’re both in agreement. And Blair helping Chuck get back the company is not him putting the company over her. She loves him and she knows the company means a lot to him so she would want him get back the fruits of his labor. If they reached a point where the plan was negatively affecting, Blair, I believe Chuck would do everything in his power to make sure Blair is never compromised.
And Blair has her mother’s company. The last scene with her mother in the car is supposed to insinuate that upon landing in Paris, her ambitions had kicked in again. She said she knew what she wanted and she was going to get it. No question marks, no fear, no what if i lose everything? I’m sure Chuck is more than happy for her to have the company. He always tells her she’s a powerful woman and so he would support her actually being in a position to execute it. I’m sure both Blair and Chuck will be pursuing their individual interests, at the same time taking care of each other, nurturing each other, making each other happy. If Chuck goes to Blair for help it’s because he appreciate her smarts and deems she’s in a position to be invaluable to the success of his operation. And maybe Blair will seek Chuck’s advice as well. It is the ultimate display of their love and respect for each other.
I want them married so bad. I feel like there’s no where else to go with them. They work so well together.
no babes. It is my next goal. He was on set in the morning and I wasn’t.
However the week coming up, if they happen to shoot outside, i will go again and see if I get a chance to meet him. Everyone’s spoken of how nice he is. EVERYONE. maybe i’ll get a picture. *crosses fingers*
Ghadd, how much i love your replies to those anon questions <3 much love from Alabama. I wish you were my neighbor or something. Sounds creepy. Well, that's it or maybe you'll ignore this and go on with your precious beautiful life. :)
I would not ignore. I would never ignore anyone’s message.
How else would I know you were my follower if you didn’t speak to me? And I hope I make myself approachable because I love for my followers to feel like they can speak to me because they can. And I appreciate your messages more than you know.
Much love to Alabama too though i’ve never been.
I don’t know why you wish i’d be your neighbor but it sounds interesting.
I will go on with m day thinking i got a beautiful message from you. <3
I don't blame you I left you alone with her and it's just my own fault. I should have known that you can't handle the pressure she put on you with her extensive knowledge on seduction techniques... The evil queen is amazing and she's the queen of my own personal world, that's how much I love her, yes, yes, I have been folding laundry with her, I must admit. I love Revenge , I also loved Ringer but it got cancelled :( Happy you're okay <3 Any exciting news on your side of the planet?
you have been folding laundry with her?
yes OUAT is a great show. I love the evil queen. She really scares the crap out of me sometimes.
I only watched the 1st ep of Ringer and then quit. lol.
yes about Janey. That girl, we should drop her in a red light district somewhere cause she is not meeting her potential at the moment. lol
well i can PM you the important news in my life but it’s not much. When are you coming back to U.S?
First, I love your tumblr but I wish you'd come back to twitter. I loved the discussions some of us used to have on there. Second, I don't understand why some people are trolling you when you've only said nice things about their favorite actor. Lastly, thank you for getting us some good set info!! I hope you have a lovely day :)
Are you Chateluv? did we know each other? I’m just wondering cause it doesn’t say your name on your blog.
Well, I could clarify this better now for all, but i don’t have any intentions of going back to twitter. I love all of your guys which is why i will keep my set stalking twitter open for when i just go to set i can just post all the info there.
Leaving twitter was a personal choice and up till now i am happy with that choice. Tumblr is just a little more peaceful and less interactive for me and i’m just the type of person who hates too much commotion. I get really bad anxiety. I’ve had this problem for a long time and trying to explain it to people, they probably won’t understand how serious it is. Twitter was making me claustrophobic.
I love the discussions i would have there as well but i think i operate better on a solo/ less stressful basis, which is probably why i’m such an introvert. I’m sure i’ll find the desire to write essays again and answer elaborate anon questions. I just, for the moment, needed to remove myself from that place.
I contemplated not even keeping this blog, but i did because i love fandom and i could never desert it. I love all of the people i’m close with and you guys are awesome, especially CBers. I’ll always be happy to go to set and whatever information i get, i’ll share it with you guys.
I don’t understand why some people are trolling me either. I can’t remember saying anything negative that would set anyone off. I guess they just enjoy annoying people, nor do i care at this point
Haha, I don't ship anybody these days (except Emily Thorne with Revenge and Regina with her being evil Queen maybe ;)) so I don't mind really ;) I'm doing fine, how are you, love? Have you bee washing laundry with someone else? I bet you have, traitor! ;P
I have I have.
I am ashamed of myself.
Basically Janey is a whore (no news there) and she turned me. without you being there to make me see reason.
oh but Revenge, i started watching it and then i stopped. lol. Maybe i should pick up again. Everyone loves that show.
and I love your icon. i love that evil queen from OUAT.
The anons who are trying to mess with Anne,you should know that she is one of the smartest girls of this fandom & come prepare the next time !!
haha. Thank you anon. It’s funny how I have only been saying all positive things about their favorite actor and one anon would randomly come into my ask and bash two of my favorites. To me it doesn’t make sense but on second thought, I guess it fits their logic.
