Cassandra the Brat

About to be bratty/display disproportionate anger about an extremely inconsequential thing – Agent Coulson, The Avengers and the upcoming S.H.I.E.L.D TV show. Please look from this if such things disturb you and know I don’t think ill of you. If I could, I’d look away too.

Gossip Girl, I think I might have to break up with you

I persevered through Blair’s “I want to be my own woman who stands on her own without a man, but I’ll immediately turn around and marry this prince, thereby defining myself in terms of a man” hypocrisy.

I only rolled my eyes at Dan’s sudden ascension to literary darling, and subsequent overwhelming demand for his second novel, even though his first sounded like a complete dud.

I let it go when the writers broke up Chuck and Blair because of a PACT WITH GOD (and yes, it was just as ridiculous as it sounds).

However, I cannot let this go. Dan Humphrey and Blair Waldorf should not be lovers. SHOULD NOT. They are wonderful as friends. Lovers, no.

How, HOW, can you build a show around the romantic love between Chuck Bass and Blair Waldorf and then CONSTANTLY DESTROY IT FOR NO GOOD REASON? I could understand if the show showed us them growing apart. I wouldn’t love it, but I’d understand. However, I can’t abide this stupid Dan/Blair romance* at the expense of the Chuck/Blair one.

Gossip Girl, this is a straw. It might be the last one.

*FYI, Blair has now slept with every male character on the show (bar Rufus – God, please, don’t let that happen)

Not happy Jan

Hi all,
Well, I have awoken today to the fabulous news that my website has been hacked and, consequently, all my blog posts have been deleted. Yeah. Totally not happy. So now I’m in the process of trying to recover and repost them. Fun times.

So peeps, please bear with me while I labour through this process. I will apologise now for any comments that have been lost. Know I appreciated your kind words and really do wish they could have been preserved for posterity.

I swear to god, if I ever encounter the suckers who did this, there will be much stabbing involved. Preferably with blunt instruments and in vulnerable fleshy areas.
