So happy that you posted! Think this chapter sums up Blair perfectly. It showed her desire to be free fighting with society's ideology of perfection. Please keep posting! Can't wait to see how this ends! :)

This chapter was very good. What people today forget, was that women had very few rights back then, if any at all to be honest and Blair should not be chastised for following her heart. I'm sure she's been chastising herself for a very long time. The word slut, like you said, has many connotations and not all of them are bad. Back then, Blair would have been socially guillotined for becoming Chuck's mistress, but honestly, I'm glad you chose to let her make herself happy, in which her happiness happened to lie with Chuck. Can't wait to read your next chapter.

I had to read this chapter three times just to try and make sense of my feelings and I still don't think I can articulate what it did to me. My breath was caught in my throat from the moment Blair sank to her knees - it was like being right there with her, and even though I knew he was coming to get her, to take her to her true home, it was still as beautiful as if had been unexpected. You killed it with this chapter and you just about killed me. Fanfiction is not supposed to do this to you; it's meant to be be the guilty little secret, it's not meant to make you feel this much. You need to write your novel, you need to get it published and you need to do it now. No pressure or anything...

*takes shot because she feels somewhat entitled to one too*
Absolutely adore your writing style. The way you describe the heart...so beautiful.
And the way Chuck and Blair emotionally married was just brilliant. I adored that too.
You also make me love Ivy - maybe we'll see her crazy lying skills really, really, really come into play one day in this story? - and she's a wonderful character, fiercely loyal to Blair and sassy to the core.
Just a question, and it's a bit of a stupid one - Blair miscarried, right...? If she did, did she kill the baby or abandon it or did it happen naturally...? Or did it not happen at all, and she just thought she was pregnant but actually wasn't? That was my initial thought, but I'm a bit confused now.
Cheers to heathen baptisms in the Atlantic and air with the quality of corked champagne,

don't worry, I will not harass you, I'm just glad that you've updated and it was fabulous as always.
It's great that Blair and Chuck can finally be together! sort of.

I love so much that you have so perfectly and beautifully summed up why and what I love about both Nate/Blair and Chuck/Blair, and the different sides of their personalities that they bring out in each other.
"And one day, one day in one or a hundred years, he would call for her. She would leave Nate, leave their children, leave every trace of propriety behind and go to him. Who deserved that, a whore for a wife, a woman who could never entirely be his…but entirely was overstating the matter. She could never be his at all, not her skin, not her fat, not her flesh, not her bones. Her heart, with its many unhealed holes, was neither in Nate's nor in her possession."
Guh. You destroy me so eloquently.

How brilliant is this chapter! I'm so glad you're in holidays. It means you'll keep writing and makes me happy. This chapter, was perfect. I love how Blair just tells Nate that no matter what she's in love with Chuck, and how he comes to pick her up at the beach. And their "wedding" sealed by ther vows... perfect! I just fear what Jenny might do now she knows that Blair spent her night with Chuck. But I have the feeling that, now, Blair and Chuck are strong and they're going to fight for each other. "Rotten to the core" there's no better description for Jenny.
Please update soon. I'm still here, waiting greedily for the next chapter.

I feel like I say this practically every chapter but this is my favorite chapter yet. I'm soooo happy Chuck & Blair seem to have come to their senses & I always loved the Damien/Jenny pairin. As for Nate I wish I could feel sorry for him but I'm hopin Lola/Ivy will lend a shoulder to cry on

I loved that Chuck and Blair are together now and "married"! Yay! I can't even begin to guess what Jenny is going to do next but I hope she gets taken down ASAP! Please update again soon!

"Chuck waited until Blair reached the foot of the stairs, her hand still on Nate's arms, every part of him angled towards her, to the radiance of her pearls, her gauze, to her glow in the early evening. Draining his glass, he stood, and wandered quite casually away towards a group of would be somebodies, rubbing the stubble on his jaw and ignoring the host, the guests and the party in general.
As if he'd never meant to wait for her at all."
This was absolute perfection! Just wonderful and made me so so happy!

So happy to see you posted! Love this story, and especially how you brought Blair and Chuck together. Can't wait to see how things play out, but don't make things too easy on Jenny. Thanks for posting! I have already subscribed, so post again soon!

Does the fact that Jenny cheated on Chuck mean that he can finally divorce her? I loved this chapter. Chuck and Blair are perfect for each other. I can't wait to read the next update!
