Dan Humphrey & Blair Waldorf: A Season 3 Picspam  

This is a picspam for picspammy, challenge no. 13, Something Different.

Gossip Girl season three has been somewhat of a disappointment, but every time I see Dan and Blair on-screen, the show suddenly feels a little more fun.

I've never shipped them before this season, but after watching them have more than the usual amount of screen time together, they have left me wanting more.

At this rate, Dan and Blair scheme together more than Chuck and Blair do. Chuck is too busy being a forty year old, so Blair has to recruit a fellow college kid to share her favorite hobby with.

Although I'm technically for Nate and Blair (although the writers of GG probably won't let that happen again), I love the relationship between Dan and Blair as well. I don't care if they share a romance or a friendship in the future, I just want to see them being kickass together. May it be getting Carter Baizon a restraining order, sending Georgina Sparks out of New York, or being in a ridiculously corny production of Snow White, Dan and Blair are a true team.

So since I wanted to play around with GIMP (so excuse the awkward coloring), may I present you...my Dan and Blair picspam. (Caps courtesy of gossipgirlfan.org.)

I love this scene. Right after Dan finds out that Carter is "stalking" Serena, he automatically enlists Blair for help. He goes from "I need to call a professional" to "WTF am I doing?" to "Did I just ask Blair to for help...?"

Dan and Blair are totally pretty together here. So Blair is like, "Carter, you're in so much trouble" and Dan is just like, "Yep. Hate to be you right now." Don't even dare to mess with their friend.

Um. Yeah. This is so obviously a highlight of Dair. I love how Blair is the most vulnerable, awkward, and human when she's with Dan. And Dan is completely aware of it. He knows she's insecure, yet he doesn't exploit it, even though he can't stand what she stands for. He even pities her a little, but he also admires her in a way. It's this really interesting relationship. And I love how during the entrance scene, Dan is like, "omg my date is Blair Waldorf wtf" and Blair is like, "Yeah."

Spying on Georgina eating cake. Ugh, I love you guys. And they're looking gorgeous together here.

I prefer to think that they're about to dance in this scene...instead of acknowledging the fact that Blair sees Chuck and begins dancing with him. I have nothing against Chuck and Blair. I mean, they have passionate, electrifying chemistry, yet they sort of lack...warmth.

Yeah, I totally dug this. And I love Blair's facial expressions when she speaks to Dan's ignorance about threesomes. They're just all-around awesome together in this episode.

Nice picspam! There's no denying the chemistry between Dan and Blair.

Yep. I love the chemistry between them.

please, please xpost to daretodair. i wish someone would iconize the middle picture of dan and blair spying on georgina. fanfic and season 1/2 moments made me see the dan/blair light. all season 3 moments are like candy now.

I'll try to make some Dan/Blair icons when I get used to GIMP.

Dan and Blair have their moments in season 1/2, but they're amazing in season 3. So much fun to watch.

Thank you.
I love your icon. Dan/Blair are awesome.

Dan/Blair are such a bright spot in the dismal realm that is season 3 of Gossip Girl.
Marcyunbliss on November 29th, 2009 10:33 pm (UTC)
Your icon made me LOL.

Yeah...season 3 of GG is really, unless Dan and Blair are together.

Awesome picspam, I wish the show would have more D/B interactions.
Marcyunbliss on November 29th, 2009 10:33 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I know, right? They're terrific together.

So cute! I'm a CB shipper first, but Dan and Blair are so snarky and adorable together. Plus he comforted her so well in Seasons 1/2! I love them.

I'm a NB shipper, but DB is so much fun. And there's still hope for DB while there's barely any for NB :( (They barely interact anymore!) I don't mind CB (I liked them in season one), but I'd like to see the writers explore other potential relationships...and not explore the really boring ones. I mean, DV and NS make sense, but they're kind of underwhelming.
margottenenbaum: Nate et top hatmargottenenbaum on November 30th, 2009 06:25 am (UTC)
I hear you! I don't really actively ship Serena with anyone, but she and Carter had so much chemistry and I would have loved to have kept him around. And I can't speak on DV because...well, ew. I love CB, but they have gone intensely downhill and at this point I almost want them to break up just so they can do something interesting.
Marcy: i'm chuck bass | chuck (gg)unbliss on November 30th, 2009 06:29 am (UTC)
I really loved DS back in season one, but I don't think they would touch that again since Dan and Serena are like, super stepsibs now.

Carter and Serena were pretty awesome while they lasted, but I actually find Carter a bit of a snooze. But he is by far the best guest-starring love interest Serena has ever had.

After spending an entire season being the most annoyingly angsty couple ever, CB is officially boring. They should break up so DB can happen lol.
margottenenbaum: Nate et top hatmargottenenbaum on November 30th, 2009 06:43 am (UTC)
I feel like if they gave Carter something to do instead of just look handsome, he would be more fun. Hell, I even love Tripp. And though I do think NS is adorable, it seems really out of place three years after the fact.

Up until the funeral episode, I was still loving the hell out of CB. After that, they just got out of hand with the angst. It stopped making sense. DB would bring back the fun, even if it just gave Chuck something to fight for instead of acting like Blair's dad. Plus DB still have snark and they could have all sorts of fun issues.

I thought the whole NS scene from the last episode was very sweet, but when you look at it in context, it's probably the most awkward thing ever. There were more appropriate times for NS to happen.

I liked Tripp before Tripp/Serena happened. Now he's just another part of Serena's mess. But as a character, he's more interesting than Carter.

Chuck is pretty much everyone's dad. Serena, Jenny, Blair...although I appreciate the maturity of this new, improved Chuck, I'm afraid that I do kind of miss the badass, womanizing jerk from the first season.
margottenenbaum: Danmargottenenbaum on November 30th, 2009 07:34 am (UTC)
Yes, exactly. I totally agree.

You answered my wish that someone would picspam Season 3 Dair so I don't have to watch whole episodes trying to find their scenes. So thanks, haha. These two should have more scenes together.
Marcy: a gateway of hope | damon/elena (vd)unbliss on November 30th, 2009 03:24 am (UTC)
I think I'm missing two or three scenes - before the part Dan gets rid of Blair's headband, Blair asked Dan to be her "date" to the party. In the following episode, Blair walks in on Dan and Georgina. There is another missing Dair scene before they plan the play (the last block of images in the picspam).

But they should have more scenes together. They're just so adorable.

I just love these two! There are such a joy to watch. And I really think they make an amazing team when they scheme together. Its a shame we don't get to see tons of screentime between the two but I've been appreciating all the ones we have gotten so far this season. And I'm glad to see a picscam chock full of those great moments :D

This is absolutely gorgeous! So lovely! :D I especially love the picture of them before she dances with Chuck. Spying on Georgina is cute as well.

Thank you so much for sharing! <3

love it...
i love dan and blair...
they're opposites but they do great with each other...
i didn't picture them together before..
but now i'm beginning to see that they are the most ideal relationship there is in gg...
their chemistry is not based sexuality but on true friendship.
to admit it, they bring the best out of each other...
you can't appreciate them if you don't see them through out the whole series...
hope the writers see what we, the audiencem are seeing in these two...
