Fangirl Challenge: [6/40] Female Characters » Serena van der Woodsen

“’Serena van der Woodsen wants to work for the Junior League and have two children?’ It’s a society ball, Serena, you have to represent yourself well. How is it representing myself well if it’s all lies? What happened to you between our talk and now? I did this because I knew how important it was to you and grandma, and you said that if I did it, I could be myself. But you don’t really want that, do you? All you care about when people look at me is what they think of you. How am I supposed to accept myself if my own mother doesn’t accept me? Oh, honey, of course I accept you. No, no you don’t. But let me tell you something, if I ever do have those two children, I would never do this to them. I would accept them for who they are, including who they date, no matter what. And I’d make sure they damn well know it.”
