Second Time Around - Chapter 5 - Making Amends

Author's Note: Happy Thanksgiving in advance to everyone in the United States of America

No beta all mistakes are mine.


Chapter 5 - Making Amends

The first step to self actuality and true happiness is admitting that you have a problem.

A problem can be an itch that does not go away or a slow aching love you can not keep at bay.

The problem can cause one to hurts ones best friend because one lacks any happiness or true self perspective.

A problem is a failure to admit that you are wrong and like Bonnie and Clyde come to demise so tragic that it can not be resuscitated.

She is finally able to admit that she has a problem.

Chapter 4 - Suspicious Minds

Author's Notes: I decided to take a break from writing from Blair's point of view in order to write from another character's point of view, Jenny's. This was very tough to write because my brain found it difficult to break from Blair's character even though Jenny had lots to say.

Hopefully this does not detract from the story and hopefully sheds more light into the previous and next chapter.

This story takes place somewhere after the previous story but, not directly afterwards – it's kind of a coda for the next chapter really but, I thought it would work/sit nicely here, so that when you read the next chapter after this one, it will act as an exposition.

Look forward to reading your comments.

No beta all mistakes are mine.


Jenny is running late getting to Dan's house. Their father had called her over an hour ago telling her that the coast was clear for her to go to the Dan's house to get the plan in motion. He and Dan were out getting some coffee and then were going to Bunker Studios to listen to some emerging artists/band that Dad was looking at producing.

Who would have known that putting finishing touches to a chiffon dress for a client would take over an hour? She hopes Dad and Dan are not back at Dan's yet. She sends a quick text to her father as she makes her way out of her apartment.

Chapter 3 – Catharsis and Befuddlement

Author's Notes: Thank you all for your reviews, favorites and followings; I am honored that you like my story.

Added more dialogue thanks to Kats on ff.net for the suggestion.

Like always, no beta, all mistakes are mine.

I have rewritten this chapter so many times that I decided to stop messing around with it and just post it. I hope you enjoy reading this chapter.


Chapter 3 – Catharsis and Befuddlement

She cannot possibly love him, that is what she continues to tell herself

The truth is she does not want to love him; she just can't!

She does not care for poems that wax lyrical "that love that is love alters not what alteration finds" [6]

Who cares what the bard thinks the year is 2019 not 1609

This...this can't possibly be her life!

Befuddlement is a mental state characterized by a lack of clear and orderly thought and behavior; "a confusion of impressions."

Blair looks up the word in the dictionary that is on the bedside table. It is not that she does not know what the word 'befuddlement' means; she just wanted a clearer and more succinct definition.

She is clearly in a befuddled state because she still unsure of what it is.

Chapter 2 - How Do You Solve A Problem Like Humphrey!

Author's Notes: I initially set out to write two chapters however, two turned into three and now I am looking at possibly four chapters. But, then who knows where inspiration might take me.

I hope you like this chapter!

No betas all mistakes are mine. Constructive criticisms are lush/appreciated.






Chapter 2 – How Do You Solve A Problem Like Humphrey!


Mila Kunis! Mila Kunis! Mila Kunis! Maybe if she says the name often enough in her head, Mila Kunis and her fixture in Dan's life will disappear into thin air.



Chuck knows!

How he knows she doesn't understand. But then again this is Chuck he has the means and ways of knowing these things. Even things that one does not dare speak its name.

Second Time Around

After such a long time I am writing again. The spark of inspiration came when I came across a story I wrote almost a year ago and I found myself fiddling with it and then decided to post it. Let me know what you think, especially in the area of the writing style.


Rating: PG

Synopsis: This is a post Season 6 AU on Dan and Blair’s relationship with a brief prologue highlighting their Season 4/5 relationship. “She could never love him that is what she tells herself every time…”

Author’s Notes: There are two styles of writing used here as I was experimenting. The prologue has a poem like structure while the rest of the fic is prose. Please let me know which you like best.

I haven’t seen Season 6 or most of Season 5 (except for a few photographs), so I may have taken some artistic license here and there e.g. Dan and Serena’s wedding venue, honeymoon; Blair’s involvement in Dan and Serena’s wedding, the identity of Gossip Girl was never revealed, she just faded into obscurity after they graduated from college, etc.

No betas all mistakes are mine. Constructive criticisms are lush/appreciated.

Disclaimer: Gossip Girl does not belong to me. I am writing this story for the fun of it and no money is being made.

Prologue

She could never love him.

That is what she tells herself every time they meet for coffee, when he visits, sleeps over or when they have brunch.

Love Has Many Guises - Alternate Ending

Author's Notes: 

The one thing that kept coming to mind after writing Part 1 and 2 was Blair's words in Season 5 Episode 15 – Crazy Cupid Love, where she told Dan, "…Just be your charming wonderful self like you've been with me all year…so if you are that guy with Serena, how could she not love you." And it made me wonder, how could she not love him? She practically declared it in that episode, so what is stopping her from loving him. As a result of my many ponderings, I came up with this alternative ending which basically consists of an additional 500+ words to create an alternative ending to Blair's POV from the previous chapter. 

The two previous chapters and their endings still stand. However, if this chapter is not your cup of tea, please accept the previous two chapters as how the story ended and ignore this one. Thank you for reading.


Note: Unfortunately the pictorial inspirations behind Blair and Dan's houses have been removed from the realtor's websites, sorry that I couldn't share them with you.

Part 1 - Dan's POV
Part 2 - Blair's POV
