“So there I was, looking her straight in the eye...
and I didn't say anything. But I wish I had.
'Cause even if it didn't change anything, she'd know how I felt.”






“You have to decide what's more important to you.
Keeping your pride and getting nothing.
Or taking a risk and maybe, maybe having everything”

The Vows



I love Dair because to me they are the perfect example of what a real
life healthy relationship should be like. I loved the slow buildup,
having them start out as enemies, to friends, to now lovers.
I love their banter and they make me laugh. I started liking them
because they opened my eyes to what true love really is.
These two love each other for who they are and they bring out the
best in each other. Dan and Blair inspire me, and because of them
I know someday I will find true love
. - ravengirl008


Dan & Blair is a patchwork of all my favorite couples.
They can be adorable, sexy and hilarious at the same time.
I love Dan's unconditional love for Blair and how smitten and happy
she looks when she's near him. Even if they're both incredibly talented
with words, their actions speak even more louder.
They're the best of
both worlds, they could've been a sitcom couple, a romcom couple, a
drama couple, they're good at everything together and it means that
they're simply real. They come from two different worlds and still they
understand each other like no other. - Orbeli


Dair is a celebration. Because a relationship can only grow and
thrive with smiles and laughter, and a mutual appreciation for the little
things that make you feel alive. Dair is an inspiration. They are a lesson
on how to truly love someone, because wishing for someone else's
happiness is ultimately what leads to your own. Dair is a revelation.
Understanding that when you love someone simply for who they are, it
effectively transforms both of you. Dair is an intoxication. A dizzying
swirl of hope, dreams, love, and joy that carries you to a magical place
where everything is possible. - priya1008

I love Dan and Blair because they make each other happy
and that's what real love should be about.

I love their chemistry, funny banter, and how they share the same
interests, for example towards movies. Honestly, I can't say that I was
Blair's biggest fan in the beginning, but Dan has brought out her sweet
and funny side, and with him she's realized that love is not about
scheming or being miserable all the time. I love Dan and Blair together because
they can be themselves with each other without any requirements.
- Jadeleine


I'm proud and a little surprised with how far they have come.
It's just great to be shipping the Gossip Girl pairing with the longest
on-screen build up. It's just so fortunate to have a great realistic build
up that actually makes sense. So I can hope things only go up for Dair.
I love their whole hate-love relationship and just to see the growth in
each episode is great. I love how Dan loves Blair for who she truly is,
he went from despising her to loving her so he knows all her flaws and
she knows his so they can accept each other and have an honest relationship.
- BrathanSupporter

With Dan & Blair I’m not just rooting for a couple I love to
watch on tv, I’m rooting for a lifestyle. The screwball romance. The
friendship that emerges from hatred, that flourishes by doing things
together
and sharing their minds. The romance that emerges from
that friendship. One that is based on a desire for happiness above all,
on respect, trust and genuine brightness. Dan and Blair shine bright,
and perhaps why I love them more than so many other pairings is
because they represent the exact relationship that I'm searching for.
They are a triumph of the values every great love should be based on.
- Air


One of the things I love about Dan and Blair is that he appreciates her
darkness and her lightness. They see the other's flaws, and they fall
for each other regardless.
D&B challenge one other, but they also
support each other. Dan doesn't want Blair to change who she his, but
he can help her see things from a warmer point-of-view. Blair is finally
realizing that Humphrey may not be a member of high-society, but
he's tasteful and interesting. And this guy from Brooklyn is finally
realizing, because of Blair, that imperfection is beautiful
. Best of all,
Dan treats Blair like an equal. He cares about her and protects her. He
loves her. And deep down, we all know Blair feels the same way.
Maybe so much so that she's let everything else in her life spiral out of
control in order to avoid the fact that this bond -- something so
unplanned and unwanted -- is The Real Thing.
Not the very thing she's
been dreaming about since she was a little girl, but something better.
Something true and attainable and satisfying. Pure, simple love. The
best kind of love.
- Katie_Jeanne






Animation of the Moment







The Aftermath

How Penn Badgley felt about the finale

Did you at least enjoy the Dan and Blair storyline last season?

"I did, actually. Well, I didn’t like how it ended, because it was just kind of [draws in breath sharply].
But I do like the scenes with Leighton because I get to kind of interact in a fun way with her.
When Dan and Blair are together, I think that’s him at his brightest, maybe."
Source


How Leighton Meester felt about the finale

"I hope that young women aren't looking at this [Chuck and Blair] and thinking
'I should model my relationships after this' because it was so dramatic and
there was some domestic violence in there that I didn't necessarily love."
Source - start at 12:21


How we all feel about the finale








Future Titles
Because even Among Savages think we are awesome.
As the seasons progressed you saw that relationship deepen. - JS
We arrived at Dan and Blair because we felt that is where we were going. - JS - thread #182
We are telling the story that we believe in. - JS
Dan “will continue to help Blair rediscover Blair in a very sweet, good way" - JS

Oops, sorry for making you dizzy but I think it's worth it.

Yeah, I think he would have had a special, touching moment planned for every Valentines day they shared together.

We got a Valentines day video gift..

No no I meant it in a good way. Can't stop staring.

I am sure he would have put together something very meaningful and thoughtful and take her breath away.

Thanks for the video.

Like he can’t get enough. Blair had it coming with her little speech about Clair-Dylan kiss.

On his last interview Penn refered to Chuck Bass lol

Badgley had also been frustrated by how he was perceived after Gossip Girl. “Up until this role, everybody thought I was such a nice guy. And it’s great to be a nice guy, but the kind of nice guy that makes ‘nice guy’ an insult—that's actually not a nice guy. I think that's what frustrated me. Lo and behold, I play somebody who's not a nice guy, and that everybody loves. We don't like Dan Humphrey. We like Chuck Bass. We like Joe Goldberg. So in a sense, what do you expect?”

No we don’t Penn, we actually prefer our romantic leads that are nice and not show toxic male behaviors.

Aw Penn..it sucks that he feels like that b/c I honestly don't think it's true.

There's so many of us who wanted Dan with Blair b/c he was a genuinely good guy. He was kind and honest and lovable.

But there's always that shrieky online voice that people misconstrue for the majority when it's really not.

And the only reason I have any positive feelings toward Joe Goldberg is b/c it's Penn who plays him.

It is easy to call Joe out on his toxic and sick behavior because it is soo obvious. I mean he is a killer and even he gets a free pass from female viewers because -well it is Penn. But other times...for characters like Chuck or other "bad boys" people don't even feel guilty when they rationalize, try to find excuses to justify their behavior or romanticize.

I am glad more people speak up about that today.

Yeah..it's sad to see certain characters get a pass from the evil they do b/c they're 'hot'. I'm glad times are changing now and I'm glad Penn is speaking out against excusing wrong behavior.

I always feel guilty when I catch myself wanting Joe to survive a hole he's stuck in. B/c I know he's a bad guy and he should be punished.
