Blair & Chuck Chuck doesn't seem to do well in fanfics...
In my boredom waiting for a new episode to come out, I've been reading a lot of fanfics, and have been sorely disappointed at the way people have manipulated Chuck and Blair's characters. Blair would never gush to anyone but Serena about Chuck. Chuck wouldn't say really romantic things: that's the whole point! They appreciate each other's oddities and inabilities to contend with a normal relationship, and that's why they work so well together. Chuck has his own smooth ways, and is certainly more romantic with Blair, but in much more subtle ways than the Knight in Shining armor chivalry. Maybe I'm wrong, but it infuriates me (and admittedly, makes me laugh at the clear awkwardness that comes out of bad writing).
