This is Season 2 of Chair Tales.
Catch up: Blair, Serena and Dan are at Yale University and it is set in their final year at Yale. Nate is not around as he is travelling the world. Blair's mother is still living in their house in Manhattan. Lily still lives in Manhattan. Eric and Jenny both attend other Universities. Rufus has moved out of Brooklyn to Jersey City.
Due to the fact that they have all moved away from the Upper East Side, unfortunately there will be no Gossip Girl Blasts anymore, in fact Gossip Girl isn't around any more so this season is based on their futures after High school and after Gossip Girl...(i wonder if that will have to happen on the real show? Because realistically how long can Gossip Girl follow their lives, its just a high school thing!) Anyway...Serena and Dan are still a couple and have their own house, they are in fact very committed to each other. So are Chuck and Blair. Well hopefully!
I hope you enjoy reading, this season probably has a more serious tone to it and they've kinda grown up a bit! I really hope you like it!... xoxo GGirl_CB4BW
Chair Tales Season 2 Episode 1- The Return of the Kin
At Yale University. Blair is looking for Serena. it is lunch time.
She finds Dan Humphrey.
B: Dan! Hey!
D: Hey there. (rolls his eyes)
B: Where's S?
D: She's meeting me for lunch now, you wanna join us.
B: I'd like to have lunch with her...you on the other hand...? (they both laugh)
D: Come on.
They walk off together and meet Serena at the University restaurant.
They greet each other and get their lunch before sitting at a table.
S: So B, did you get it? Please please tell me you got it!
B: (looks upset) Ummm....well they said...(changes her expression and shouts) I GOT IT!!!
They both get over excited and jump with joy.
Dan on the other hand looks startled and bemused.
D: (looking to people who are watching them) Ummm...they're strangers....im not with them....(pointing at Blair and Serena who are still celebrating) I dont know them....she's not my girlfriend and shes not my girlfriends best friend...no ....(looks to S and B) ok...you can calm down now...this isn't high school....
Serena and Blair sit down and calm down.
D: Ok now...explain...what did Blair get? A new headband?
B: Haha (sarcastic laugh) actually..... i got the lead part in Yale's Annual Musical!
D: Oh...wow (sarcastic) so that's why you two went all (imitates them in a squeaky voice whilst waving his hands) "OMG! Oh Oh! No Way!..."
S: Dan! Its the biggest part in the biggest performance at the biggest event of the year!
B: Not to mention representing Yale, the biggest university in the country!
D: Ok...whatever...congratulations Blair.
B: Thank you! (gets her phone out) I have to tell Chuck!
S: Wait...dont you wanna tell him to his face?
D: I dont think he'd be willing to participate in anything which would compare to the celebration you two just performed.
S: Dan! (looks to Blair) Just wait till you get home...tell him then.
B: Your right...i want to see his reaction!
S: Im sure he'll be really proud of you.....how are things with you two anyway?
S: So your both over that argument you guys had the other week?
B: Yeah, it's in the past.
S: And he's going to try and stay home more?
B: He said he'd try, but i honestly dont have a problem with him going to New York so often....i just didn't like the fact that...he'd come home in a bad mood...it was damaging our relationship.
S: Well...maybe your argument was worth it then....just like i said before....at least you got to tell him how you felt about the situation.
B: Yeah i know....and things have been better ever since.
D: If you ask me...
B: I didnt ask (grins)
D: Well....IF, emphasis on the if....if you did ask me, id say...harmless squabbles can sometimes be good for a relationship....but some of us dont even have those..(he looks to Serena and they smooch)
B: Even after all these years i still find you two kissing, revolting....excuse me i have a drama club meeting...(she gets up)
Serena and Dan giggle as they say bye to her. Blair leaves.
* * * * * * *
At the Drama Club meeting.
The University is holding their Annual Performing Arts Production and Blair has just passed her audition and been selected to play the leading female role. The D.A.Y (Drama Association of Yale- made up!) have chosen to perform their own modern adaptation of the famous play called "West Side Story"
Blair sits down next to her good friend Zane Haas Mayer (i have written him into Chair Tales as Dustin Milligan who plays the character of Ethan Ward in 90210)
Z: Hey babe, i heard that a really talented, funny and beautiful girl got picked to play Maria...
(he looks at her and they both smile) Congratulations.
B: (smiling) Thanks..
Z: Well...i kinda knew you'd get the part...your an amazing actress and you totally deserve it...your the best i've ever seen.
B: (blushes) really? it's so exciting...ive never done anything like this before....its a big break for me! I cant wait!
Z: Well...im sure your going to be perfect....and it wont be too difficult for you to play the part....because i got Tony.
B: What?! Really?!! I didnt think you were going to audition for it!
Z: Well i did and i got it! isn't it great! We both got the parts! (he reaches over and hugs her, she hugs back)
B: Im so happy! I cant wait to go home and tell Chuck!
Z: You haven't told him yet?
B: No, i want to see his reaction!
They are interrupted by the drama instructor who calls them to the meeting.
* * * * * * *
Later on that night. Blair is at home when Chuck returns from the office. over the past year Chuck has been working on franchising one of his fathers businesses closer to home in New Haven. He has been in and out of town on business and now has his own office site in New Haven.
Blair has prepared a special candle lit dinner for them and is planning on telling him about getting the lead part in the play after dinner.
B: Hey honey! (she runs over and greets him)
C: (he smiles) Hey gorgeous. (they kiss)
B: How was work?
C: Usual. How was College?
B: (she smiles) the Same.
They walk into the dining room and he smiles when he sees the table set.
C: Wow....whats this for?
B: Im just in a really good mood!
B: Yes...come sit....lets eat...
They eat their dinner and catch up. Once they are done Chuck stops Blair from cleaning up and tells her to follow him upstairs. So she does. Once in their bedroom...
C: So...your not tired are you?
B: (smiles and he grins back) No...not at all.
C: (he kisses her) Good. (they continue to kiss passionately)
B: But there is something i want to tell you (he kisses her as though he didnt hear a word she said)
C: (between kissing) You smell nice.
B: (between kissing) I need to .......tell you .......something.
C: (he lifts her up whilst kissing and they fall on to the bed) Yeah...?
B: (between kissing)...Its about....the play.....i audition for....
C: (between kissing) ...what ....play....?
B: Only the biggest play of the year....(he trys to kiss her again but she stops him) I auditioned for Yale's take on West Side Story....and (she laughs) I got the main part!!!
C: (he kisses her again) great.
B: (after some more kissing) Is that all....just great...?
C: (he looks at her) Well what do you want me to say? (he tries to kiss her again, she stops him)
B: You could at least congratulate me!
C: (grins) Congratulations....now are you going to let me continue making love to my beautiful, sexy girl?
He grins again and reaches to kiss her, she allows it, at first reluctantly due to her disappointment at his reaction to her news, but eventually she gives in and they continue to kiss until they make love.
* * * * * * *
The next morning Blair wakes up to an empty bed. There is a note on his pillow.
"Got to go to work early, see you tonight.
It wasnt the first time, he usually woke up early, he was working so hard to make his new business work. She wasnt sure if he was doing it for them or for him, or just to prove to his father that he was capable, she worried because she believed it was the latter. Their relationship was steady....they'd have little squabbles but they were nothing major, except for last week when she finally admitted to him how much she hated him going to New York so much...
B: You dont have to prove anything to him! (referring to Bart)
C: This has got nothing to do with him! Im doing this for me! For us! Why dont you ever appreciate anything!
B: Of course i do! I know how hard you work! I just dont like you going away all the time and then coming back to me a different person! Your always so moody when you get back and i have to try so hard to make thing better!
C: Thats not true!
B: It is true! Your the only one that can see it! Even Serena and Dan notice it!
C: Stop bringing other people into it! (he grabs her arm) Stop telling other people our business!!
B: Ow! Your hurting me Chuck! let go!
C: (he lets go of her) Just deal with it because this is how things are going to be!
They had sorted things out eventually and Chuck had agreed to spend less time in New York. She was worried because at times she felt as though their relationship was falling apart. However she couldn't deny the fact that they were so much in love, but that was always their problem...they may have truly loved each other, but that didn't stop things from coming in between them. After their argument, things had gotten better, on the outside, he seemed more committed and she could tell he felt guilty for hurting her, he loved her and he was trying his best to make a go of it.
* * * * * * *
Later on that day at Yale.
Serena and Blair meet up, Dan eventually joins them. Serena has been going on about some good news she and Dan have to give to Blair but she couldn't say it without Dan there.
B: Ok S, he's here now, so tell me your good news!
D: Your gonna tell her right now?
S: Yes, i cant keep it in any longer!
D: I thought you wanted to announce it more formally?
S: I cant keep it from her!
B: Just tell me already!
S: Dan asked me to marry him!!!
B: (in shock, before she can react Serena hugs her) Omg S....i ....im lost for words...
D: So was Serena when i proposed.
B: (looks to Dan) You proposed?
S: Yes! and it was the most romantic thing ever! B did you know that last night was the anniversary of the night Dan and i went on our first date? To his dad's concert! Do you remember!
B: Ummm...no...not really...
S: Anyway...i have to tell you all about it later...but can you believe it! We're getting married!!!
B: (she forces a smile) Wow...S....im..so happy for you! (she hugs Serena) congratulations S. And Dan....(she nudges him) congrats. Im happy for both of you.....anyway.....ill have to catch you later...ive got rehearsals.
They say bye to her and she leaves.
D: Is it just me or did she not seem happy?
S: You noticed too?
D: Yep....what does she still not approve of me?
S: No no! she loves you!
D: I wouldn't go that far!
S: Dan...it's not you.....it's Chuck.
D: What does this have to do with Chuck?
S: You know how much Blair wants Chuck to commit to her...you know....get married and stuff.....me and you getting married, it may have just threw her a little.
D: You mean she's jealous?
S: Well she is Blair.
D: Point taken.
S: No, i didn't mean that in a bad way...i just meant that seeing her best friend getting married before her is something she wouldn't really like.
They continue to talk.
* * * * * * *
Later on that night. Blair and Chuck have just had dinner and are watching a movie.
C: Yeah? (he wraps his arm around her neck, whilst still watching the movie)
B: Have you heard from S today?
C: Serena? No, why?
B: She told me something today....Dan proposed to her!
C: What? Really?! (he laughs) He actually proposed....( he moves his arm off her)
B: Ye....i think its really nice....he's committing him self to her.
C: (he guesses the assumption she's making) Well...marriage is the solution for some.
B: Solution? What do you mean?
C: When things get boring in a relationship....people usually get married to try and fix it.
B: No! Thats not true! People get married when they love each other and want to show their loyalty and devotion to each other...marriage is a symbol of an eternal relationship.
C: (sarcastic laugh) Ye...well that's just your opinion...can we not go in to this right now...
B: Why...we hardly ever talk about it....
C: Well i know how the story goes....im not interested....im going to bed...(he gets up to leave)
B: But the movie isn't finished yet!
C: Ive already watched it. (he leaves)
