I have been rewatching Gossip Girl recently and oh my god why did they have to ruin Dair and force the popular couples in such a rushed way? I mean it was Gossip Girl, I am not expecting a Netflix original level storyline but still. Back in the day I was rooting for Chuck and Blair, tbh I was pissed at first that they were just hooking everyone up with each other.

BUT pleasantly surprised that their storyline was so organic, the banter pure gold. Now after rewatching, I realize I appreciate them even more.

So much so that I signed up to write this.

I'll be around and looking up fan videos

Aw welcome! I started off rooting for Chuck and Blair also but I soon saw that they were so toxic and Chuck kept leaving her for all the other women in the world.. Dan was perfect for her and she was perfect for him. There are a bunch of fan videos posted for Dair on their thread in the couples board also if you were interested.

I lovedd how they evolved from the beginning of the show. I totally think Gossip Girl did that by accident..lol

Thanks

So agreed. And their lines that were supposed to come off "epic" were just cringy after one point. lol Overall the show suffered from a ton of bad writing, were it not for the cast or the magic of NY and fashion I don't think it would last even as long as it did.

And Dair brought a certain quality to the show overall, the tone and quality that was missing since early season 2. They felt real together while most of the characters had become caricatures of themselves (especially Blair). She could be herself with Dan. The Blair that is strong, fierce and smart which made the show soo appealing to watch.

The show as a whole really suffered as a whole when the writers strike happened. DB still stayed amazing for the most part

They should have stayed together considering they are a better team than Chuck&Blair and Dan&Serena.

Endgame couples that made no sense 1- Ted Robin 2- Chuck Blair

Writers should know to accept when characters and story evolve and that it is ok not to stick to the initial plan. Anyway for me it is always about the journey, not who ends up with whom. Of course I wish they at least had a better closure but their journey was so beautiful.
