^^ Yeah so many people wouldn't understand if I quote fictional characters from a show they don't even watch. However luckily some of my friends do because I do this a lot! I also use Joey's quotes especially "Moo point" Also some Chuck quotes "Call me sentimental" and I call confused people "natefused" or some people are "motherchuckers" Love my babies


Carrying this to here:

You remember wrong dear. First of all no one can compete with me about GG facts (except some parts of S5 because I only watched those parts once and that was enough yuck... I mean the second half DB parts of course) Well not something you can write in your resume and it does no good to me in RL but still a specialty nonetheless

First of all, here the check Vanessa sends:
Check|Note

Second of all, the part you wrote is about Dan trying to stop the publisher before the book comes out, not about getting his money from Vanessa.

In 5x1 Dan learns from Jeremiah Harris that a book is gonna be published. He tells Dan that there is a book coming out, the main character is named Dylan and both the writing and the character awfully sound like him hah. Dan knowing that Vanessa saw his draft, goes to home and looks for the draft at the loft but he cannot find it naturally. He also learns that Vanity Fair is gonna publish the part about Princess of Monaco, basically the part where he writes like something happened between him and Blair. The subject being Princess of Monaco, vanity Fair is interested ofc. So he goes to Louis to make that not happen telling him that it might damage them. So Louis helps it kept under.

In 5x2 he still goes after the real publisher to try to stop the publishing. Since he got the check from Vanessa he thinks that he can go after the bank account to learn the real publisher. This is where he asks to Serena if she can help him because he remembers that she and Chuck went after Lily's account for the affidavit in Season 4 (4x12 to be exact). Serena tells him that it was all Chuck doing and he can ask him for help. So he goes after Chuck. At the end Chuck tells him that he can help. In 5x3 we see Chuck saying he had mediocre sex to learn the publisher So he learns that it's Shapiro's publisher and he is gonna publish the book himself. Then we learn that it was Shapiro's push to make Dan own his book and decide to publish. Dan owns his book. In 5x4 the book comes out.

1. Changed how for you? Because for me he went downhill and fast
2. What do you mean "a bit"?
3. And, only in the last two seasons?

i also use "mcfly!!!!" but you'd only get that if you saw back to the future LOL

I love BTTF!! Love that I was saying "Great Scott!"

Except ultimate insider I think all have changed for the better, especially Chuck. Also except Season 5 pod!Blair. Luckily she got to herself at the end. But since character development was secondary to OMFG moments, nothing much to say overall imo

yes. I always loved Dan, but sometimes I shake my head at his decisions. He made some mistakes, but we're only human.

they all got worse to me. dan turned into an ass. nate was just boring, blair turned into a weak female and a whiner, serena never ever grew through the series and kept doing the same crap, chuck got even meaner and more horrible then he was in the first season IMO. obviously jenny changed. eric even turned into an ass.

i just hated where the show took things in seasons 5/6 the show got so bad and the final season was so bad.

oh well, i will always cherish season 1.

ah. I gotcha Alexa. I didn't like how they ruined Jenny at all. In season 5 though dan says I didn't know to Serena. huh?! I was like what? I didn't care for nate and randoms and I didn't like the CB. The main reason I watched this show was for Team Endgame and DB. They started to mess everything up though. The thing is though Dan is hated but yet Chuck is always excused for his actions. Nate was always boring to me, but I have a soft spot for NB and I love NJ. At least they made him interesting.

i loved everything in season 1. season 2 was not as good but still enjoyable. season 3 had some good episodes but i hated the pairings that year. season 4 things just got soon boring and i only really stuck around for the jenny stuff and dan.

then db started and so i watched for them in season 4 and season 5 even though season 5 was horrible otherwise. season 6 it got even worse and when db ended and they turned dan into a jerk i was over it. i only finished the series because there were only 13 episodes that year.

I hated what they did to Dan in season 5 and 6. He was always flawed, but still had an amazing heart. I don't really care that he judged people cause the cast of characters all did that. Blair was horrible in early s1 but got better by the end of s1. Then she got progressively worse, but I think people enjoyed the fact that she was an elitist bitch. Serena was just spinning after S3 because apparently she had to be a hotmess. I just think switching so many showrunners were bad for the show.

I can't take Gossip Dan seriously because they never explained his motivations and felt like a pointless omg. The only moments he seemed like his true self was around Serena and then they had the con that wasn't a con. But, I'll take ******* dan over no balls dan that was Blair's bitch anyday.

eta: lessismore

Thanks for clarifying. I've only watched s5 once and it mostly gives me a headache so I skip to 524 in my rewatches.

exactly. I hate how much Dan changed in season 5. I didn't know? What kind of quote is that? That's not the dan I loved. even though I love DB, everything still changed. Remember what Serena said to Dan? and he forgot it seemed. He brings out the best in her. I could never buy team trifecta because Serena never really loved Nate. Only Jenny did, how can I buy that? and DV was ok.

Same ol' convo over and over... Chuck was excused? Hah... That is the funniest thing really. He spent his entire series arc to grow up and own his mistakes and make amends, unlike Dan. Becoming a man from a spoiled brat... I see these two characters somewhat real opposites of the show actually. Regarding their arcs as well. And you'd think Dan would be actually interesting when he swapped roles with Chuck, but he was plain boring again.

Also, Chuck didn't get meaner. He got screwed up the most and payed the most. But, Dan is the most excused character ever... He has made mistakes, sure everyone can, but he is forgiven all the time and won every time; he is even the one who gets to be apologised for the mistakes he made ???? Probably you don't remember those too... Also, Chuck never acted like he is better unlike Dan. The problem with Dan judging people was about him judging and then doing and being the worse and acting like he knows better. He messed up with these people's lives. He ruined and he still won and got everything he wanted. There is no case that he has lost something for what he did. Even at the very end. He is GG, it doesn't matter you accept it or not, and we see him forgiven. Meah, whatever he is GG??.. Kind of subtle imo because yeah whatever Dan is GG, audience weren't even thinking of him as to quote Chuck And yeah still he whined and got worse and worse... Oh give me a break... I lost my respect for Serena when she forgave him again. I mean after 5 years it might have been ok even if they wouldn't show again how he made amends, but forgiven like that and there... Seriously his life was so hard, poor guy hah...
