The title on this post is a song from Arctic Monkeys (one of my favorite bands, ever), which played on Gossip Girl Season 1, episode 18 when Chuck and Blair danced and agreed to take things slow. Yes, I am your typical fashionista with a penchant for glossy shallow television series (I still watch Carrie Diaries and Pretty Little Liars... at 25) but the show didn't make me much of a Blair fan. Surprisingly, I took on to Serena more in the series (well, for the first few episodes, I didn't like her druggie arc) as the girl who didn't want attention but had attention (mostly bad) handed to her anyway. Blair's character was made too lovable in the series (no thanks to you, Leighton Meester) that she became way too much of a perfect Manic Pixie Girl. I liked her more in the books--she was so flawed, she was beautiful... a selfish over-achiever Audrey Hepburn fanatic with not much luck in love or life (with a sleazy Bisexual Chuck Bass in the background, sans the romantic storyline). Yes, I was an avid reader of the books way before CW bastardized the storyline into a sensationalized TV show and I'm proud of it.
