Makeshift Miracles

Summary: They weren't together, oh no. They were just parenting an unborn child together. Some people say raising a child is tough. If the past nine months were any sign of the life ahead, tough would be an understatement. FutureFic.

Genre: Romance/Family

Author's Starting Notes: First of all, I'd like to thank my beta McChanged for looking over what I have written so far and confirming that it wasn't complete crap. Secondly, I'd like to say that this idea has two separate plots in my mind. One plot goes with the trailer, the other… not so much. I believe I'm going with the trailer plot, but we'll see. I hope you enjoy this story, and I have to say really quickly that this is a Future Fanfiction. They are no longer teenagers. Just wanted to say that. So, if any of you leave reviews saying, "Why on Earth is this going on? They're only seventeen!" I have license to say, "Check the first post's AN, dork!" Also, Dan and Serena never dated in this either. In this one, Jenny stayed a quiet little mouse until after they left, Dan never got into the whole crowd, and the gang never really knew the Humphrey clan in anyway. The only people who knew them were Vanessa - who the gang doesn't know - and Lily - who never, ever mentioned her past with Rufus Humphrey.

Trailer:

She wanted a baby

(Shows Blair and Serena at Starbucks)

"I'm having a baby, S," Blair admitted

"Ooh, with who?" Serena asked

"I… don't know yet, but I'm going to have one," Blair said

He wanted to be someone

(Shows Dan and his friend, Joseph, at the same place at a different time)

"Do you know what my life has been reduced to?" Dan asked, "You, me, and that creepy guy in my building who seems to think that I'm his son,"

"Well, what do you want then? I know a few girls who'd be dying to take you out,"

"No, Joe, I want-I want to be like something to someone,"

"You're something to me," Joey said jokingly

"And you're full of it," Dan said rolling his eyes

When the two met, they didn't think anything of it

(Shows Blair and Dan talking at a wedding)

"So, who are you?" Dan asked

"Friend of the bride, and you?" Blair asked

"Friend of a friend of the Best Man," Dan said

"Quite a mouthful," Blair joked

"You get used to saying it after a while," Dan said

However, it didn't take long for a plan to come up

(Shows Blair and Dan hanging out when Dan sees folders)

"What are these?" Dan asked picking up one of the many colored folders

"No!" Blair yelled snatching them from him, "It's, uh, nothing,"

"You don't normally snatch away 'nothing'. Come on, what are they?" Dan asked

"Promise you won't laugh?" she asked, he did a little salute thing, "They're… they're donor bios. I-I want to have a kid,"

"Why are you doing it like that then? There must be someone you know willing to have a kid with you," he said

"Not really," she shook her head

"Well… actually, you do,"

"Really? Who?"

"Me,"

"You?"

"Yes, me. Is there something wrong with that?"

"No, it's just… weird,"

"Hey, I'm not saying I want to marry you and grow old with you, I'm just saying, I could help you out,"

"Why?"

"I'm nice. Besides, what's the worse that could happen?"

But the plan was only the beginning.

(Shows Blair freaking out)

"Oh, my gosh, Serena, I can't do this," Blair said

"Do what?" Serena asked

"Continue to play this game! I can't keep pretending like this," Blair said

"Pretending what, B? Come on, you're scaring me here,"

(Shows Dan and Joey seated somewhere)

"So, when are you going to tell her?" Joey asked

"Tell her what?" Dan asked back

"Hmm, I don't know, maybe the fact that you have a girlfriend!" Joey said raising his voice at the end of the sentence

(Shows Blair in a doctor's office gasping with tears in her eyes)

"I'm… I'm sorry, Miss Waldorf, but… she's gone,"

This summer comes a story about romance

(Shows Blair looking wistfully out a window)

"He's everything I've always wanted in a man, and more," she admitted

Friendship

(Shows Serena hugging Blair as the brunette cries)

"It's okay, Blair, I'm here. I'm here," Serena whispered comfortingly

And Family

(Shows Dan and Blair looking out into the distance)

"I'm your family now," Dan said nudging the bottom of her chin

"And so am I," Serena said coming from behind

"And me too!" Nate said

"Don't forget me," Joey said smiling

--

Starring Leighton Meester

(Shows Blair falling dreamily onto a mattress with a dorky grin on her face)

"Best day ever!"

And Penn Badgley

(Shows Dan looking at Joey with an eerily serious face)

"I-I think I love her, man," Dan said

"You can't!"

"And why can't I? So what if she's mourning, heartbroken, and feels alone. She's so full of life!" Dan exclaimed

"Do you know how many things were wrong with that sentence?" Joey asked sarcastically

With Blake Lively as Serena and James Marsden as Joey
