A/N: Okay, I honestly don’t know how I can remember this dream since I had it the same night I had the dream in chapter 1…*sigh*….but I will try my best to remember as much as possible. Hehe.
This dream was a much more intensified version of the Nate/Vanessa/Jenny love triangle. When I watched it (the love triangle) on TV, I TOTALLY sided with Vanessa. Don’t get me wrong, I really TRIED to be open minded about the whole Nate/Jenny thing, but I just…couldn’t. It just didn’t feel right to me. Though whenever I watched Nenny vids, I found them adorable. I feel like they could’ve been written much better and gotten people to love them, if they had been meant to be together. But I’m kinda glad they didn’t….I was Nanessa all the way. However, in my dream….I was put in Jenny’s place for the majority of the time…and I really felt REAL pity for her….waaay more than I ever felt when watching the show, and now I understand. Oddly enough. Hmm. Dreams’ll do that to you though, I s’ppose. ;p Well, enough rambling….READ ON! ;D
*I own nothing but my own thoughts. ;p
Dream 2-The Fiery Mass: An NVJ Love Triangle
Well, I’m back on that god forsaken country road, but this time it’s the first one. The one with the tall grass and deep blue sky. There are hardly any trees around, but in the midst of it all is a broken down, rusty car….and on its trunk sits Dan Humphrey, writing away in his little journal. Though I suppose its not really little, normal sized…..I suppose. And he’s writing stories, at least that’s what I’m guessing. What else would he be writing? His diary? HAHAHHAHAA. I think not.
Anyways, Jenny is leaning up against the side of the car, pouting, but looking as beautiful as ever. I swear, I didn’t take to her new haircut very well…but in that scene where she’s putting away the records in 2x12, I thought she looked stunning.
Once again though, she leans….her hair, straight and shining in the sun. She is wearing a striped shirt I believe, and though it is like the middle of the summer (at least in this part of my dream), her shirt is long sleeved, though kind of thin….I think. (wow…I just said though like 3 times. XD haha)…and quite possibly she was wearing jeans. Hmm…anyways, I feel like there was a flashback to the snowflake ball at this point. I don’t remember the whole vanessa see-through dress thing happening, but there was definitely a flash to Nate’s confrontation with Jenny afterwards.
Jenny’s eyes shut slowly in anguish, as the peeking letter shone itself in the cracks of Nate’s hands. “I never got that.”
“I know,” he said, almost sympathetically now. All his threats to her concerning Vanessa seemed to be wiped away in that single moment, but it did not last long.
“Look, I know what you must be thinking of me right now…but if I had gotten that—”
“I’m glad you didn’t!” And there it was again. The anger. The disappointment. It was screaming from his eyes. He was hurt. He really did care for her, however briefly it may have been. “Honestly? You’re not who I thought you were.”
Those words. They cut her to the bone. Yes, she had messed up, but she wasn’t really like this. Sometimes when people got the better of her, her mean side shone out but isn’t everyone capable of this sort of ability? Everyone has a bitter, bitch side they show to the world when everything just becomes too much to handle.
Nate gave her one last sad look and turned to walk away from her, no doubt to find Vanessa. Suddenly, she grew angry. True, she felt awful for what she had done, but Nate was NOT the person she thought he was if he could just throw her away like he was some perfect angel.
“You’re not perfect either!” she shouted after him, and he halte, turning around slowly.
“Excuse me?” he asked, like he had not heard her correctly.
She stepped towards him slowly, determined. It wasn’t like she felt she was innocent in any of this, but he certainly was not the purest of the bunch.
“Sleeping with Serena while dating Blair, ditching Vanessa for the summer only to hook up with an older married woman and tossing your best friend aside for my brother?!” she demanded in a hushed screech.
His eyes widened.
“You are far from perfect, Nate Archibald.”
“Hey! Who are you to be defending Chuck?! I’d think you’d be excited I was getting close to your brother! And anyways, at least I felt bad for what I did!” He had gotten sucked into her drama, regardless of his hastiness to escape it.
Jenny scoffed at this, to into her own prodding to get away from her pumping rhythm.
“Oh yeah, cause kissing me when you thought I was Serena at the Masquerade Ball really shouts ‘I’m sorry’!”
He shook his head. “You’re right, Jenny. You’re right. But I never publicly humiliated any of my mistakes.”
“Wait, so Blair and Vanessa and SERENA even?! They were mistakes,” she mused, in shock.
“No! No, I didn’t say that.”
She almost laughed at this. “Oh, Nate. I like you, I like you a lot. But you are a confusing mess,” she turned and walked away. “Just don’t hurt Vanessa.”
“Me?” he asked, “you’re the one who set her up tonight.”
“And I felt HORRIBLE,” she turned back around. “tried to make her stop, tried to undo everything. But that doesn’t matter to you, does it?” She took a few steps closer to him again. “Just like it didn’t matter that even though what you did to Blair was so much worse than what she did to you. You just couldn’t accept her. You hypocrite!”
“Chuck was in love with her!”
“And what if he hadn’t been? What if it had all been a mistake?”
Nate scoffed at this. “Blair and I were never meant to be. It was forced.”
“Was it?” she shook her head, unable to take much more of this. “I was just your rebound, wasn’t I? I was just the girl you were with, until you figured out Vanessa was still crazy about you.” The truth that hung in those words shocked even the little Humphrey who spoke them.
Nate found himself speechless. So, she walked away.Eventuallly, he found his way out to the street, just in time to find the weeping Vanessa. She was the one he wanted to be with, if for no other reason than she still saw good in him.
The next scene, though I’m not sure if it was a flashback or not….was in some old arcade room. It looked like it was at some sort of camp. Jenny was in the room and she suddenly spotted Vanessa. Instead of any sort of apology, she stalked over to her and started yelling at her over everything that had happened. Vanessa was NOT sympathetic and simply continued the yelling until both of them had gotten swept up into a fiesty cat fight, grabbing arms and legs and muttering indecencies under their breath.
“He likes me!!!” Vanessa grinded her teeth, pushing hard against Jenny’s advances.
“Well, he could’ve liked me, if you’d just stayed away!!” she was so angry. Jenny was so angry.
Then! Out of the blue! A vending machine appeared and Jenny tried to throw a punch at Vanessa, but the head of curls moved out of the way just in time and her fist went flying into the plastic and metal. She made sound of anguish, but only continued in that girly fight. It looked very much like the fight Serena and Blair shared in 2x06, but this looked much more…painful, instead of hysterical, though as I’m describing it, I can see how it might come off funny. Haha.
Lightning seemed to shoot out of Vanessa’s eyes, and if you focused very intently on the darkened background, you could see the random figure of Chuck walking past the arcade games. (HAHA XD!!!) It’s true, I tell you! Lol.
Just then a door leading to the outside, which coincidentally seemed to be right next to the vending machine….the BLUE vending machine. Haha XD OPENED! And in walked what appeared to be a sheriff. He put the two girls (connected) in handcuffs and arrested them for incorrect use of public property (a.k.a. the vending machine). Basically only Jenny was being arrested, but I guess for some bizarre reason….Vanessa was invited along.
The two girls bickered the whole time, fighting about how Nate was theirs or what not. Sigh. The plights that fantastically looking Archibald puts the women in his life through. Goodness. I do not remember much else that happened, only that Vanessa seemed to be very mean and I was REALLY feeling for Jenny….I think I was her at a couple points.
Anyways, eventually they were released from the handcuffs and I get the idea that Dan picked up only Jenny for some reason (Nate must’ve been picking up Vanessa. Sigh. Figures. Lol. WHY AM I UPSET?! XD) ….and then the two Humphrey’s drove off into the countryside, where eventually the car broke down and Dan settled on writing his literary works on top of the trunk. HAHA XD So basically it must’ve been all a flashback, and my mind finally allowed me to see it from Jenny’s perspective, though I don’t think she could have ever mouthed off to Nate because she really is that good girl deep down. ;p
A/N: Um, REVIEW! =D HOPE YOU ENJOYED!!!!!!! *gasp*
