Pure & Simple Love [Humphrey♥Waldorf] #203-because why oh why did it have to be this way?

The Queen B & The Lonely Boy;
welcome to the dan and blair appreciation thread




"What works with Dan and Blair becoming so close is how wonderfully each complements the other. Chemistrybetween characters is a magical thing and impossible to predict. Some claim to see chemistry between Blair and Chuck, but I’ve never been able to detect any. Perhaps this is due to my being older than the show’s target audience. Perhaps their magic is undetectable by anyone old enough to have a healthy adult relationship. But for me—and I’m hardly alone in this—both Dan and Blair became more interesting characters as they began to spend time together. Unlike Blair and Chuck, who only have their dysfunction to keep them together, Dan and Blair’s ongoing friendship is grounded upon their love of film, art, and books, and, of course, conversation. No two characters on television are as much fun to listen to as Blair and Dan. If Blair and Chuck’s scenes feel like they come off the pages of really bad romance novels, Dan and Blair remind one more of Howard Hawks’s screwball comedies or Nick and Noral Charles in the Thin Man movies." TV Highpoints and Lowpoints, July 2011

“In the film Sabrina, Audrey Hepburn said “I have learnt how to live… how to be in the world and of the world, and not just to stand aside and watch and I will never, never again run away from life or from love, either.” While it may sound a bit strange, I feel the same way as Sabrina. And it’s because of you, Blair Waldorf. You have taught me how to live, how to enjoy everything the world has to offer. You have brought out this side of me I never thought existed. Before you, I did not truly know how to live. I was expected to be a certain kind of person. But the truth is, that person was someone I didn’t actually like that much…”









"Blair has sort of made Dan her confidant about the pregnancy. I love their relationship I think it’s in a totally different level that we’ve seen of it last season even when they had that kind of combative fun. There’s Dan really feels care taking of her even though he is on his own story and trying to deal with his own things. And I think it’s a nice, it’s really…It feels really…They feel really great together. I love their dynamic." Executive Producer Sara Goodman, October 2011

"The Dan and Blair connection is something that’s been there from the earliest episodes. Their relationship to Serena, and the degree to which they’re polar opposites and represent everything that the other hates, makes their dynamic really charged. At the same time, they are characters that have a lot in common. They are the most book-smart characters hey share a lot of the same interests. And as much as they might want to hate each other, there are a lot of reasons for them to like each other. So it’s a really fun dynamic to write." Executive Producer Stephanie Savage, 2011

So now that that lifelong dream is gone, she's able to step back and go, "Wow, that dream is over so what's my next dream, who am I going to be next?" It's really allowing her to come into her own and grow in a great way, with Dan by her side, is someone who has always accepted that growth in her. Her relationship with Chuck has always been fraught with a little bit of antagonism, it's been sexy and also they tried to be there for each other but then things get in the way. And here she finally has a guy who is like, you go off and do what you need to do and I'll be here. Executive Producer, Josh Safran 2012
It was as if they belonged on a different show, because their storyline was vastly superior to everyone else’s dull drama. Dan and Blair together are like Harry Burns and Sally Albright reincarnated — the couple was obviously inspired by When Harry Met Sally. The show even recreated their famous phone-movie date for a Dan and Blair scene. The history of their relationship parallels the iconic film couple; the two began as enemies, became friends and eventually a couple. Alfonso Espina, HuffingtonPost.com 2012

"Blair, actually. definitely. I think Blair is Dan’s soul mate. I don’t know if they’re ever going to get together, but i’ll tell you that i’ve never enjoyed any scenes on the show as much as those scenes with Leighton Meester, on a strictly intellectually as an actor. There’s a whole other thing—like everything that happened early on in the show, like the obvious Dan and Serena stuff, that moved me in a different way for obvious reasons, but strictly as an actor, those scenes with Blair are the best." Penn Badgley, 2011


I’ve always loved the dynamic between Blair and Dan even though she’s constantly going back and forth with Chuck. Blair finds Chuck to be much more sexually provocative and they have always had this very erotic chemistry. With Dan it’s different. They have more meaningful conversations and she finds something so attractive about that. Leighton Meester 2012






"I don’t want to say that or not say that. We made a very conscious choice to take Dan and Blair slowly.We’re well aware that we can put couples together and break them up much faster than other shows can. And we really wanted to build what we felt has been there since season 1 in “Bad News Blair", hen Dan and Blair had their little moment in the hallway where they talked about their problems with their parents. So we just sort of realized that they had this long brewing friendship-slash-whatever it was. So I think what you can hope for is that Dan and Blair will continue to be connected and that story will continue to grow." Executive Producer Josh Safran, 2011

I'm going to record it and watch it during the week. I just watched the salon episode tonight. Dair were so cute, I wish they were allowed more happy couple episodes.

Yeah, at least what we did get was golden

I love their kiss at the end of that ep, & the party being a disaster really wasn't their fault. If it wasn't for the uninvited guests, I'm sure it would have been fine....

I watched Rosemary's Baby, such a great film. Very creepy, but funny in parts.
