~vdB Appreciation~ #2: Because the family that plays together, stays together.

Welcome to the
van der Bass
Appreciation Thread!



Banner: iamme @ the Fishelage


The Rules:
This is an appreciation thread. If you love any or all of the relationships formed by the van der Woodsen/Bass marriage, please feel free to post your love for them here. Rufus/Lily discussion does not belong here.



~Reasons we love the family~

1) Because Serena and Blair are sisters, and they really will be through marriage.
2) Because Lily did NOT have to marry Bart; she chose to.
3) Because Serena is sorry for getting Chuck kicked out of the vdB suite.
4) Because Bart knows about Lily and Rufus and still married her.
5) Because Bart tries to get to know Serena and Eric.
6) Because Lily never expects the worst of Chuck.
7) Because Chuck understands Eric.
8) Because Chuck "enjoys having family around."
9) Because Serena gets an overly protective older(?) brother.
10) Because Eric is "mini-Chuck".
11) Because Chuck would never put his dirty package on Lily's table.
12) Because Bart is all about the family bonding!
13) Because whenever there is a problem, Eric and Serena know that Chuck will be there, judgment-free.
14) Because they need to catch up on all the lost moments, like bathing together.
15) Because the school is building the van der Woodsen-Bass library.
16) Because Lily used Rufus to make Bart jealous.
17) Because Lily went public with Bart.
18) Because Eric gets the brother he's always wanted.
19) Because Lily and Bart were nesting together.
20) Because we want to see more family moments.
21) Because they came together to ‘eff things up.
22) Because they have the best family dinners.
23) Because "'til death do us part" wasn't just for Bart and Lily.
24) Because when Lily needed to be a mother first, Bart understood.





~Favorite moments~

Season 2 Wish List
1. More Chuck/Eric screen time.
2. Family dinners.
3. Bart/Lily heart to heart.
4. Chuck being protective of Serena.
5. More Bart Bass development.
6. Background on Chuck’s mother and how it effects him and Bart.
7. Lily/Chuck talks
8. Grandma CeCe comes to Manhattan and interacts with the Bass men
9. Blair to sleepover.
10. Bart walking in on Blair/Chuck.
11. The vdB suite to be the new hangout of the Non-Judging Breakfast Club.

Season 2 Don’t List
1. Chuck reverting to a total perv around Serena.
2. Lily cheating on Bart (she has more class than that!).
3. No character development for Bart; keep him just there.
4. Ignoring LB’s relationship altogether and giving Lily’s screen time to her and Rufus’ “friendship”

You're welcome and thank you.

Phew, now I can stop trying to remember if I have the most recent code saved on both computers, lol.

I'm really hoping they play around with the 'family' aspect that they created. Serena and Eric haven' had a father figure in their lives that we've seen, and Chuck has sorely been missing a strong maternal figure. I want to see those relationships explored.

i couldn't agree more!! i really hope they have the VdB as one of the main staples of the show. i love how they interact with each other especially C/E/S.
ive just noticed by looking in the OP that E/S have both called C for help etc awww!! i just love them!! perhaps a little too much - but i don't think thats possible lol

OMG, you moved so fast. How did I miss the new thread? (Got my hair done and got the DVD in the mail.)

LOVE the OP.

AND! Honorary members? I think Blair would be one. I agree on NOT putting Serena because she isn't (yet), but I think Blair might? It's possible. Her two favorite people under one roof.

Hmm...I want CeCe. We gotta see if she approves!

Although I'm not an LB shipper, I love this family so much, their chemistry is amazing. I don't want it to be end game (clearly, check out my sig), but guh theyr'e so much fun! I want plenty more scenes of them in season 2.

I added you Kelly!

The CW website has 4 "Thank you cards" from Lily and Bart up for their wedding. I have such a hard time remembering to write those myself .
