I avoided this story for a long time as I knew it was unfinished...and I had a feeling it would break my heart. And I was right!
Your page says that your fics haven't been abandoned but you're on a break. I so hope you're coming back. This fic and "Mad About You" are your only unfinished works...but at least with "Mad About You", you left CB in a good place - they're engaged, happy, their parents support their union. It would be nice to have a resolution to Chuck and Bart's relationship in that story, but otherwise the major hurdles have been overcome.
But this fic...ugh! Their relationship is just so beautiful - you've done such a wonderful job at depicting that unique connection they share, the undeniable chemistry and all-consuming love between them. From your last AN, it sounds like you still had a lot in store for this story. And I'm desperate for all of it, including:
- dinner with Eleanor and Cyrus
- declaration of love (who says it first?!)
- the proposal
- the wedding plans
- the 'first fight'
- Carter and Blair's interaction pre-wedding. Just what is he up to, and what, if anything, did it have to do with Blair running out on her wedding?
- Carter and Serena (she deserves a happy ending too. Is he her happy ending?)
But, most of all, even your angstiest fics have had a beautiful resolution to them, one that is worthy of Chuck and Blair. And this fic is crying out for it. I know the show finished a few years back and life is busy, but there are more than 200 people who would still love to see how this story unfolds.
Just wanted to let you know that there are still a lot of CB (and nondescriptf) fans out there. A Chair fan is a fan for life...and I have no doubt that there a still a lot of us out there who would be thrilled to read your work.
Hoping against hope that you'll be inspired to return to this fic one day soon :)

Another one I can't wait for an ending to! After reading your historical fiction I decided to read the rest of you stories and wasn't disappointed! Please finish them if you can! I adore your writing and the "voice" you give all the characters.

Hi! I had to send you a review because I’ve read this story during the past few days and it’s been a wonderful time doing so. I’ve had a smile on my face while reading it and this story has several times amazed me. It’s not only very well-written but the story is surprisingly original and the AU world you’ve created really works.
I loved how you portrayed CB (very in-character) and their love. There isn’t many stories where they work “just” being in love, but in this one it really did not get too fluffy or cheesy. You’ve added a perfect amount of layers to the story. Blair’s problems with relationships and Chuck’s lack of earlier relationships makes things interesting, and the reader wondering what’ll be in store next. CB have in common their fragile relationship with their parents and I’m glad you included that here. The constant anticipation about what really happened on the Wedding day adds to the many things that makes this story intriguing. The fact that we know that somewhere along the way things are going to move too fast, and end with B in her wedding dress in central park – it makes the story work. And of course the secrecy of their relationship has done its part as well.
CB is always a perfect couple, but it is different how writers portray them and their love. You’ve managed to describe their love in a very real way. I love how they’re so in love, wanting to spend every minute together.
I have understood that this story has not been updated for a very long time and you seem to be on a break or something. I can understand that. I don’t even know if you will read this, but I hope you will.
This story is beautiful and one of the best stories I’ve ever read here – not just CB stuff. You’ve got a talent and I hope you’ll continue to use it.

Hellooo, i might be a year late but still want to say your story is perfect! I loove it to the bits. Hopefully you will have the courage to update it one day (soon enough lol). I'm curious why blair ran away at her wedding day with chuck. She totally fall in love with him at the last chapters. Please do not abandon this flawless story :) I'll be waiting for your update!

Thought about your story today, and decided to let you know that it is still on my list of fics which might hopefully be updated soon;)

It's been a year since last update, is there any hope that we will see how Chuck proposed? Or even Eleanor's reaction to Chuck's coming over for dinner?
| Moonflower26 chapter 4 . 5/23/2013
Oh, I must admit that Past intrigues me to no end! Can't wait to see how his trend of not doing girlfriends and her trend of making men to propose within short time will clash with each other!
