I said it’s been a long time
Since someone looked at me that way
It’s like you knew me
And all the things I couldn’t say
It was one thing when the Gossip Girl writers had just decided to destroy Dair, because that was heartbreaking from a shipping standpoint, but from a character standpoint what really troubles me is the lengths these writers are going to, to vilify Dan in an effort to make Chuck look like “the good guy” it is so disgusting.
The fact that they actually had the nerve to say that Dan is soulless and for that accusation to come from Chuck of all people makes me literally throw up a little in my mouth. I can still taste it, and honestly that’s how this entire season has felt, like that extra shot that you know you shouldn’t have had because you can feel it trying to creep back up. Like the difference between a hangover and a headache.
Chuck Bass is not the kind of man people should be encouraged to root for, or to hope gets the girl. He is a womanizer who treats the “love of his life” like property that he can literally trade or claim ownership of when it suits his current agenda.
He’s been drunkenly violent, degrading, and has treated all other women who have had the misfortune of being in a relationship with him better than he’s treated Blair.They never had to deal with being sold for a hotel with the expectation being that they perform sexual favors for his uncle (someone who ended up having a sexually transmitted disease no less) They never had to be compared to a horse, in their darkest hour after he outed personal intimate details of their sexual history to Gossip Girl because she chose someone else. They never had to deal with him sleeping with their enemy because they were late to meet him, and then have him attempt to propose to them hours later. They never had him work to take away everything that has been important to them, in the afters of their relationship. In fact they were fortunate enough to never get thought of again. If only Blair had been as lucky.
Plus, insult to injury, the fact that we’re expected to root for him in his revenge plot to take down his father for taking back his own company that he created from the ground up, a company that Chuck nearly lost more than once and almost destroyed is laughable.
Chuck still seemingly owns the Empire Hotel the ONLY thing he purchased and started to build that actually belongs to him. If he invested as much energy, time and money into building his own true empire, instead of trying to steal back his fathers he may actually have accomplished something by now.
Instead we’re forced to endure him stringing Blair along until he’s vanquished his father. The writers actually used that word, as if he’s some superhero out to defeat the bad guy, when he’s just another bad guy fighting someone marginally worse.
To think this is only one way the writers have gone about wrecking not just the final season, but honestly the show as a whole. I’ll cover the other ways another day.
You don’t know pain until your otp doesn’t even get a break up scene.
sometimes i think of when blair ran away from her wedding into the towncar and dan was in the driver’s seat.
and i cry.
I will never let you down.
#seriously tho: how was dan humphrey supposed to not fall in love with blair waldorf#how can a guy not love a stapler stealer running away with such class #in those moments dan was falling in love with blair and he didn’t know it yet #too many feelings about a single gif what have you two done to me #teach me how to move on
When she and I were working side by side at W.. and I totally fell for her.
OMG how screwed up is this show.
Chucks ‘mum’ sleeps with his best friend.
now Chucks ‘dad’ apparently slept with his girl friend.
btw my feelings on the rest of the situations:
so when blair is insecure in a relationship, the boyfriend says to reassure her:
chuck bass, “remember i’m chuck bass and i love you.”
dan humphrey, “you are fiercely strong. independent. beautiful. outspoken.”
