in the gossip girl fandom, we don’t way “I love you”, we cyberstalk and write a blog demeaning and insulting you, which roughly translates to a love letter, and I think that’s beautiful.
alternatively, we also sell our loved ones for hotels and pressure them into sleeping with skeevy rapists with hepatitis, which is also quite beautiful if you think about it.
Just finished watching 90210 finale, I’m actually crying :’(
90210 is done.
Gossip Girl is done.
Merlin is done.
Fringe is done.
Terra Nova is done.
Chuck is done.
Legend of the Seeker is done.
Smallville is done.
We finally found out who the mother is on HIMYM
All my other fave shows are either on hiatus or having their finale this week. Where most of them are on their last season this/next year.
What do I do with my life now?
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.
goodbye, gossip girl!
“…one 95-pound, doe-eyed, bon mot tossing, label-whoring package of girly evil.”
The more and more I go on I can’t tell if I’m becoming more like Blair or if Blair’s becoming more like me. I feel like they’re writing for us. I mean I feel like I’ve had to put myself into her so that I like her. I couldn’t play a character I didn’t like or sympathize with. Goodbye, B. [x]
I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you
I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me
I love you for the part of me that you bring out
I will never let you down.
