i think i’m just gonna make bulletpoints for this one
. I think it’s fine for me to address my questions to the fans. I don’t address all my questions to the fans. you’re saying i should address my questions at he writers, and for something like the miscarriage and how they dealt with the aftermath, i’m constantly asking the writers for explanation because i know the fans cannot answer that question
Do you know what Safran replied to me on twitter after i didn’t stop badgering him. He said he couldn’t even answer that question because he is not part of s6, meaning that the writers had no plans of even dealing with it in s5. I ‘m glad he gave me an honest answer but you have no idea how disappointed i was. And i’m never afraid of asking the writers questions. I do constantly. However, some questions i don’t have to ask the writers because if a group of fans are agreeing with the narrative it means that they understand the writer’s intentions, so i don’t really have to ask the writers, i could just ask the fans. Which is why i asked the question that i did. I just wanted to get many different answers so i could understand better why certain people feel a certain way and understanding of something i completely don’t understand, and we are watching the same show.
Also i think i must make it clear that not all Chair fans are in love with the finale. For a lot of people it did fall short. But we didn’t find any of it shocking because we expected it to happen. I never saw how Dair was built solidly because i observed mostly from Blair side and at least her half of the relationship wasn’t strong. So i didn’t believe in that relationship. So CB reuniting wasn’t shocking for me. It wouldn’t have been shocking either if she ended up alone. I felt like, this whole time she was waiting for a catalyst to bring her back to herself.
wow, this is a funny way to bring up 5x11. It had been two months since the accident that happened in 5x10. Louis was the one who instigated that Blair was having an affair. And srsly, he was in pain too. he lost a baby too and i don’t think Blair had any consideration for that. I understand what drove Louis to that point to think these things. He must have been going insane. Blair wasn’t sharing anything with him or allowing him to be there for her. She also refused Chuck and Serena. so i understand why they were worried about it. It’s true that Louis and Chuck assumed the worst but it certainly wasn’t in an accusatory way. They were only worried for her. Thet weren’t trying to hold anything against her. They both wanted to be there for Blair and help her and she refused all of them. Plus Louis, again, was the one who was going to publish it on the computer, not Chuck. I don’t know how much Chuck and Nate were in on the plan when Serena came back to the room but Louis was the one who came up with it. And i agree it was wrong. But i feel also it was that they had no other way of reaching Blair. She literally cut them off without an explanation, especially Chuck. try putting yourself in his position. One day you were gonna run away with this girl and she told you she couldn’t wait to spend the rest of her life with you. the next day she’s like FU and GTFO. imagine how crushing that is.
Chuck claiming in the finale that he always put Blair first, i don’t agree with and vehemently refute. i posted about this before. But maybe another day i’ll make write an elaborate essay about it. He has put Blair first, at times, but not always. And i don’t know why Sara Goodman put those words in his mouth. It doesn’t do him an favors.
In what ways do i think Chuck pays for his mistakes? The same thing goes for Serena. The writers have really been intent on making them pay for their mistakes. Chuck is the most tragic of the two. What he did to Blair had its consequences. It meant they would never be together again. It meant he irrevocably ruined the greatest thing that ever happened to him. he ruined his own happiness. And you saw him deal with this conflict on screen, how he didn’t deserve Blair. How he couldn’t make her happy. He paid the price for what he did. He lost the love of his life.
At first it was very apparent Chuck didn’t understand what he did. But when you come to 4x02 and you see him limping, he probably spent the whole summer limping because he got shot for trying to hold on to the ring, the memory of her. he’s walking with the sin of it in a hole in his stomach. It’s quite literal. And there’s so much contrition on his part, not just in the things he said or the sad look on his face. He literally humbled himself into a peasant. He gave up on Chuck Bass because Chuck Bass didn’t deserve to live. But Blair said no Chuck Bass deserve to face what he did and he is welcomed back into my world as long as he faces what he did. And that was the forgiveness that made him worthy again. Only Blair held the power to make him worthy again because his entire worth had dissolved with what he destroyed.
Chuck never found happiness anywhere else, if it wasn’t briefly for Eva, but Blair took that away as well. He was constantly paying for it. Beating himself up, crashing motorcycles to deal with it because he’s come to accept, that the amount of pain he has to live with, that’s what he deserved.
the vows. i’m not gonna mention it again
the alienation is both Dan and Blair. She sought it out and he enabled her. The reason why i blame him is because he was in a better mental and emotional capacity than she was at the time and he enabled her in one of the worst things he could do. i don’t understand why he never motivated her to reach out to her friends for support during this hard time. He allowed her to lean on him only. Or at least to seek a professional. Did you see the kind of advice the priest was giving her “that’s between you and God”. He is like the worst priest ever. He literally made her dilemma that much harder for her. And i don’t like that Dan knew better and didn’t say anything until like 10 episodes later he tells her You’re powerful and capable and strong and lalala…I’m just sad he never really told her that when she really needed it and he just let her cry on his shoulder. i have my reasons
Well the video did ruin her life if we’re being technical but i’m not being that technical. I meant it ruined her life for a period of time. It was essentially what made Louis flip. I don’t understand how Blair didn’t read that pre-nup though. She knew it was that much money and she begged Louis to marry her. idk. But yes, that video Dan sent did ruin her life. idk how much more do you need me to elaborate? If you watch the show, you see how much her life was compromised because of it
lol. i was going to bullet point, seems like i can’t do that. i’m very expressive with words.
this may be my last word post for the day. I have other things to do. but i hope i answered your questions. And I understand what you are saying. And from the many replies i’ve gotten throughout the day, i understand better why some of you see the vows the way you do. I just wanted to clarify what particular aspect of it you found so romantic, whether it was the gesture or the literature itself. Seems like most people think of the literature and not necessarily the gesture. So i guess i am satisfied with the answer i got.
i’ll publish this and then i’ll proofread it, i guess
oh also, i don’t want to post in the dair tag my responses because i know they bother some people. But the ones of you i’m interacting with, i will tag my responses with your urls. So instead of checking the Dair tag, just check your url for less spam.
