Modern Fairytale [Nate ღ Jenny] #200 - I bet you're surprised we lasted this long!

Modern Fairytale My Ass
by Jenny

Jenny’s eyes were in serious danger of popping out while she read all the 300 comments. Some people were so passionate about her and Nate and for other “ships” as they called it, that it made her worry. She felt the need to check out all these places the fans mentioned that they shipped “NJ”. And what did that OTP meant? She knew it was a part of the “Fangirl language” but the last years fighting with Blair over the crown, then designing and then being the Queen had hardly left her any time to be a fangirl.

So she googled it, and what she came up with just made her more anxious.

OTP=One True Pairing -- usually used to denote a fanatical devotion to one pairing in a fandom, excluding all others; a fandom abbreviation referring to one's favorite fictional couple.

To add to that, she also checked the links Gossip Girl had given in her post; by the end of her inspection she was utterly stunned and speechless.

There were people that actually adored her and Nate and spent hours every day chatting over what happened and their hopes for their future. Her future.

Somehow they had found out about every single moment she and Nate shared; damn, sometimes they even knew what was spoken between them! Apparently they searched beyond Gossip Girl, they asked people that were present and they even spied…

This was a first for Jenny Humphrey. She had no idea what to do. Some of the girls in the forum seemed really sweet but also overly obsessed with “NJ”. The one who caught her attention at first was this “Annie” girl. She also shipped Chuck and Blair and she was present in every conversation about her “Gossip Girl OTPs”. She was really passionate but not the stalker-type; at some points she even defended their privacy. And she also wrote in a language that seemed like… Swedish?!? God, they shipped Jenny and Nate in Sweden???

Light On

"That's not true Nate," Jenny assured.

"I know that now." Nate looked straight into Jenny's eyes as he spoke. He wanted to make sure she understood.

"I really wish I would have gotten to read your letter," Jenny revealed in a soft whisper.

"I do too." Nate also revealed. Jenny was surprised at this for a moment, but then continued on speaking.

"I mean things could have been so much different...and even if things wouldn't have worked out, we wouldn't be we are now," she said sadly, thinking about how things could have been if fate had steered them a different way.

"I really miss your friendship. I'd give anything to get that back someday."

Nate pulled an inch away, his eyes taking in her face. He touched the corner of her lip with their entwined hands, his thumb stroking it softly. "What do I mean to you, Jenny?" He asked quietly, softly, sweetly, vulnerably. If her heart had repaired itself it would have broken, but it was still just ashes. Jenny closed her eyes for a moment, breathed in, breathed out, opened them again.

The moments passed and he took in her eyes that had turned cold once more. "Tell me what I mean to you, Jenny." Nate said again, his voice demanding and assertive and even alarmed now. His grip tightened on her hand.

"Nothing," she found herself responding, and the bottles that held her memories of him were cast out to sea.

There was a moment and then his hand dropped hers. "Hope you're warm now," he said in a hoarse voice, stepping away from her, turning, and leaving without another word.

She felt the cold air hit her body like a tidal wave.

Can't Stay Away
by IsisIzabel

Jenny looked into his eyes, less than an inch from her own. Her breath hitched slightly, staggered by the intensity of his gaze. “It seems like I’m always thanking you for something.”

“Then I guess it’s a good thing I don’t mind helping you.” He chuckled softly under his breath. He inhaled deeply. She smelled sweet, utterly feminine scent as it filled him, consumed him.

“I guess so,” Jenny agreed, her gaze dropping to his lips unconsciously. She licked her own lips tentatively. Before she could give her sense of reason a chance to stop her, she closed the distance between them, pressing her lips to his.

The kiss was every bit as sweet as the one nearly two weeks earlier, but there was more to it. It wasn’t reckless and driven by a series of chaotic events. It was more about them being together in this moment. There was more control, and more need.

She needed this.

My Only Offer
by Pulpvintage

She studied Nate closely, her voice faint with disbelief, “Are you mad at me?”

“I’m not mad, Jenny, I just thought-”

That she still had feelings for you?

Nate ran the tip of his tongue over his lips that had gone paper dry.

“I just thought you were a lot smarter than that—” He turned away from her, “I mean, God, you only knew the guy for a day, hell, not even-”

“How could I have possibly known, Nate? I had no idea!” Jenny exclaimed incredulously with open hands, and Nate bit back a cruel laugh.

“Really, Jenny? No idea at all? It didn’t seem just a little weird to you that some stranger who’s never spoken to you, never uttered a word to you in your two years of attending Constance, all of a sudden, starts speaking to you after what happened? Takes you out to lunch the same day? It never occurred to you to ask yourself why some guy with six silver spoons up his ass would be interested in someone like you if not for a way to spend the night?”

At his words, Jenny nodded slowly, bit down at her bottom lip hard, her legs suddenly shaking, her shoulders lurching forward as a rebellious sob escaped the corners of her mouth.

Nate instantly felt regret seize him by the neck like a hand.

Not Now, But Soon- The 200th Nate/Jenny Thread Soundtrack

Compiled by: Susan
Art by: Lexi
About the Soundtrack:
As with every soundtrack I compile, every song has been carefully selected. Every one fits the piece of a greater puzzle. However, there is a much richer, angstier tone to this entire mix than the previous NJ soundtrack. It is the underscore of the not quite, the almost, the only just; the beauty and the tragedy of wanting something, nearly having it, but then losing it completely due to circumstance. It's been hard being a fan of these two the past several months. Their relationship started off very simple and innocent, but grew into something much more complex as their feelings began to emerge. There's always been something magnificent brewing under the surface between them. It's been briefly tapped here and there, but it's never been allowed to fully emerge. It's definitely been a frustrating journey. This compilation of songs represents that struggle, but also offers a little bit of hope, that brighter days are just around the corner...That the sun will come out not tomorrow or the next day, but maybe someday...Not now, but soon.

And yes! That is a fanfic by me!!! It really is a day for miracles!

HAPPY 200 GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I kind of feel like crying now.

LMFAO. Lexi, seriously thank you so much for all your help! Even if no one else appreciates your work on the soundtrack, I do.

Still in a state of shock from all the pretty!!!!
