Dan and Serena need to come back
Derena1045, there will be a build-up- the Keith Vdw storyline. But yeah, agreed.
I think that Serena and Dan are destined for each other. Serena was so cool when Dan was around, she was sweet, funny and charming. I miss season one S. And Dan really loved her, and deep down, I think those feeling can never go away completely. I mean, I know that now they are stepbrothers, but Serena was his first love, and she was his first time. You can't forget that.
Thank God 80% of the forum here is realizing this now what we've known all along. It's funny how after Serenate's first episode made everyone realize that Dan/Serena had an epic relationship. Everyone is over the "they've broken up too many times" shit. I pray that it won't happen again. They are endgame.
Chuck/Blair (for the Chair fans), Dan/Serena, Nate/Jenny, Vanessa/brick wall as endgame.
GG_Bass, couldn't agree more! I CB, NJ, DS and V-and-wall are the most epic ships EVER!
I completely agree with everything. DS were the backbone of this show in season 1. And nobody can use the excuse that they've broken up too many times as a reason not to like them. Chuck and Blair and other couples on the show have broken up and that doesn't change anything. Now that people see that NS aren't all they're cracked up to be, maybe they will hop on/back on the DS train.
Let's face it, Serena was at her best when she was with Dan. She was sweet and caring and bubbly and...HAPPY. Serena has been such a mess since they broke up in 2x17. Dan hasn't been great either. The whole teacher storyline was the dumbest, most out of character thing they could have done. The show goes for the OMFG moments, not caring about how much they screw up their characters or past storylines.
I think everything can be fixed though. Yes, they still have Scott, but I'm hoping it'll come out that he's not really Rufus' or something. Dan and Serena are meant to be together. I started watching the show for them, and I'll start watching again if they come back. They just make each other better. And the way they ended was just unfair.
^ I know, right? And the writers try to like, rewrite history when they make it sound like Serena and Nate have "waited" for each other. Nate will hit on anything that moves and looks like a girl and Serena couldn't have cared less about him for two and a half seasons. It's ridiculous how much they try to sell NS as a couple by giving them sex scenes and making the other characters support them being together - which makes no sense to me whatsoever. Dan, Blair and Jenny would never realistically root for NS. They just wouldn't. And newsflash to though who think NS love each other: SEX IS NOT LOVE. Serena has only ever loved Dan. I just hope the NS nastiness ends soon so she can go to Dan where she belongs.
i love this thread! i love DS and they really are the best and most realistic couple on the show. im so happy that they will finally have more scenes/ build up with the father thing.
serenate makes me sick. im not biased like some people say but i really dont see the chemistry.
also scott is definately not going to be there brother, that was so stupid. he should be the guy from the valley kids, owen campos. he went to the party with lily in the flashback episode.
I think NS will just be about sex. They were together for one episode so far and all they did was have sex, fight, then have more sex. I don't see them connecting emotionally, which is what a stable relationship needs. Nate won't be the rock that Dan has always been for her. Sex isn't what Serena needs right now. She looks to feel physically close to people, but doesn't always let people in to what she's feeling. She's upset about her dad, and is hopping from guy to guy this season to try to feel close to someone because there's a deep void left there.
I'm hoping even though she's still with Nate right now, it'll be Dan who's really there for her when her dad returns. It'll throw her for a loop. And if Dan is supportive and there for her when she needs someone to talk to, I think it'll just solidify that Dan is the one for her. Nate is too dumb and Nate!fused all the time to know what to do. And it looks like he'll be all up in Jenny's storyline. Nate and Serena have been friends a long time, and sure, they look pretty. But that doesn't mean they're right for each other. They are too similar in a lot of ways.
A lot of people think DS don't match because they're really different from each other, but I think that's why they worked so well. They're from different worlds, but saw something in each other. Dan always said he didn't always approve of Serena's world, but he knew she was special and different from everybody else. I just think about what she said to Georgina in 1x15: "I like the way I feel when he looks at me...like, like I want to believe in myself." And he looked at her the way nobody else ever did. Dan was the only guy she was with who made her feel like she was important...like she was more than just, for lack of a better word, a slut. lol.
That's why I don't think the fact that all NS have done so far is have sex will be good for them. Their "relationship" should have had a little more build-up to be believable to me. If you look past the sexual chemistry that NS have...what else is there? They have barely interacted in these 3 seasons. We've never been shown why these people could potentially work together. I don't believe they really like each other when I watch them. Especially not on Serena's side. When she was with Dan, you could just feel Penn and Blake's charge. They said so much and expressed so much feeling with only their eyes. I want it back. I want the sweet, bubbly, caring Serena back, and the dorky Dan Humphrey who adored her for everything she was. :[
totally agree with everything here, can we send this to the writers?
i love when people feel the same way i do. so glad there are ds shippers still out there and not grossly attracted to serenate, boo
There are definitely still DS shippers out there. On Facebook and Twitter. Randoms comment about them on recent articles about the show, too. A lot of DSers aren't very vocal online. I have several friends who love DS but have never been online to show that love. A lot of people also gave up after the horror of 2x17. I think if they come back a lot of people will flood back in.
Do you guys follow DS on Twitter? lol. Check it out.
