“In one timeline we kiss but the stars don’t come down. In another you set a world on fire for me but I perish in the flames. Another and we’re strangers on a busy street, brushing by close enough to send each other reeling off balance but not stopping. Somewhere there’s a final space where your hand on my face is the punchy climax to an epic saga, where the way our mouths meet takes the breath right out of people’s throats. One universe has us right, of all the millions stacked on millions. So it’s not this one. I can live with that. The world is full of wonders and a hundred years ago the moon was too much to dream of touching. Look how far we’ve come. Turn over your shoulder and just look. Maybe we’ll come across each other at the turning of the century, racing across the breaches between worlds. I’ll build my life on that maybe.”[x]
That’s all. This is, as they say, the darkest timeline. Everywhere else, nay, “everywhen” else — us in the Civil War, us in Ancient Egypt, us in the swinging ’60s — we are happy.
If this theory holds, well, by the law of averages, there had to be one universe — just this one — where we don’t end up together. Here and now just happens to be it. If you think of it this way, nothing is our fault.
Because you could have loved me forever. And maybe in another universe, I let you. (x)
Remember that time when Dan Humphrey was so sure Blair Waldorf would never actually see him as anything more than a friend so when she shows up at his loft he automatically assumes she’s back with Chuck, but then she gives him a ‘no’ that borders the line of incredulity because why would he think she was there because of that? And then Dan Humphrey blinks in confusion because he certainly can not and will not believe that she’s there for THAT reason and he actually sighs because holy shit, could it be that there’s a teeny, tiny possibility that she might like him too? And her smile and slight eyebrow raise is almost screaming “Yes, idiot. I do like you too. God, Humphrey, do I really need to be this obvious? Fine. Look at my glowing face looking back at you. Is that a sign that could possibly mean anything to you?” and then the entire Dair fandom died that day ^^
Dan and Blair, i n d i v i d u a l e n t i t ie s, two nouns separated by a conjunction. Or a comma, if mentioned in a list. Which is rare, since we have nothing in common and are in fact, opposites. The kind of opposites who do not attract. Most definitely not. No.
Dan and Blair were from completely opposite worlds, but are so similar in many ways. They both share the same passion for art, film and literature. The dialogue between the two is such magic to watch, it could not have been replicated by two other characters on the show to the same effect. It was as if they belonged on a different show, because their storyline was vastly superior to everyone else’s dull drama. [x]
