I read this again today (and tonight). It is such an epic piece of work (as is the fic preceding this one). Every scene, every word is so artfully depicted and chosen. You have veered so completely from the show but managed to sustain very authentic characterisations - and not just with Chuck and Blair, but with all the characters.
Your flashbacks are genius. So rich in detail and imagery there's almost a haunting quality to them. Chuck and Blair by the pool at Barbiston, their pinky fingers touching - I can see it and I can feel the two of them breathless, perturbed and almost resentful at the effect the other has on them. Chuck's flashback to Carter was just as brilliant. As was the little look at them playing Truth or Dare...Chuck's pained expression and his "I like doing stuff with you".
And you managed to do something the show completely butchered - Dan's *feelings* that emerged for Blair once he began writing about her. His "strong feelings of a yet-to-be-determined nature" were really about Blair's feelings for Chuck than feelings for Blair herself. He was captivated by her unwavering, all-consuming devotion to Chuck - something he'd never experienced, and something he was resentful toward Serena and Vanessa for never displaying toward him. Of course, the show didn't explore this in an interesting or insightful way, instead giving us a painful and cringe-worthy relationship that managed to completely destroy Blair's character and undermine her love for Chuck (something that, despite all the mistakes Chuck and Blair had made, was never previously in question). I would have loved to have seen how you resolved this storyline here.
Anyway, you're extremely gifted and I will return to these fics again and again. It's been years since you've updated but I live in hope that you haven't completely abandoned your Chair fics. Perhaps you'll stumble across an episode and it will inspire a rewatch...and then a completion of this story.
Because I really want to know the shocking discoveries made by Chuck and Blair. I'm assuming one is Lily's complicity in Jack's plan, while the other is possibly Dan's writerly obsession with Blair?
I'm sure I'm not the only one who wants to know what happens next :)

I'm not very good with words, so I can't write an argument like a lawyer on her most important closing remarks, nor sonnets that can move you to post up more chapters. But I hope that you will continue this story.
You are such a great writer, and I'm being very greedy. You are even a greater writer because you seem to make your reviewers become more eloquent and graceful as well! Never have I enjoyed such a great comment section than the ones attached to your stories. I think your stories are the only stories that I read not just every chapter of, but also every page of the comments/reviews.
I usually never bothered. Shows you how thirsty I am huh?
Anyway, thank you so much for your stories.

It's never too late to finish this, or at least re-post the snippets you had up when you pulled your stories! I think your fans would take anything, at this point. And don't you want to finish what you started?

OMG, please tell me you're continuing this. I need to see the end of this. This series is just BRILLIANT. Not only the portrayal, but the whole plot and the characters. It's FUCKING interesting for the reader!
| PeacefullyJos chapter 14 . 8/16/2014
I would LOVEEEEE THIS IDEA. Please don't bow out of this fandom. We need more authors like you! :)
Your stories are delightful, excellently portrayed and clearly HIGH quality stories.

This chapter made me laugh, made me cry. I realized I don't want Eleanor in this story to die. It's such a cruel fate, Eleanor's. I really, really want her to survive.

This is amazing. AN AMAZING start to what looks like a night I won't be sleeping. I'm looking forward to it.

Helllo! I really think you should continue writing this story.

You know, I read your stories before I got myself an account here, but even then when I have been just a silent reader, I felt compelled to review this fic. I reread last chapters and my review from back then and understood that though there were hundreds of GG fics I have read after that, yours are still special to me. They are classic, like Chuck and Blair themselves. I don't think someone did their love more justice than you, and the showrunners didn't even come close. That's why I decided to give you your due and list you as my favorite author. Mind you it is a very limited list)
I'd like to see the continuation of this one day, to discover what revelations you had in store for our favorite couple in the after-hours of Mad men party. By the way, I had no idea about MM series while reading this fic first time around. I discovered them only two months ago. I get now why Chuck and Blair had all the fuss going around this theme. I'd love to attend such an event myself. The style of the 60s is fabulous. And Chuck posing as Don Draper? It's so his look!
I am in awe of the conversation between Chuck and Vanessa and Chuck's look as he thought about spending his life with Blair. It is so easy to imagine that Vanessa resolved not to settle for less. Would we ever see a proposal? I dearly hope that you still have enough love for those characters and stories you created to be inspired to give them happy ending they deserve. Thank you once again for the profound pleasure of reading your works!
