I am proud to present, even if a little late, the January FOTM interview with the awesome Natasha. Congrats, hun! আপনি deserve it!! :) 1.Tell us something interesting about yourself that we don't know.
Hmm, not sure what আপনি don’t know about me yet, some of আপনি know more, but the basic stuff is that I’m from Macedonia, born বছর 1989, studying languages and I’m obsessed with everything France related. I kinda have an OCD of keeping things in order and symmetrical. I like to change hairstyles and hair color pretty often. I’m pretty much obsessed with my hair, sometimes when I don’t like how it looks like, I might not go out অথবা not even go to uni and skip classes. These are all the fun facts I can think of for me right now. 2.How do আপনি feel about winning FOTM?
I feel very flattered and happy all at once. I think this মাস some of those that haven’t won yet and are constantly nominated deserved to win আরো than me, so thanks everyone for choosing me for FOTM. It’s a great feeling. Especially considering the fact that I got chosen out of many amazing CBers who daily participate in this lovely spot and are keeping it active. 3.What do আপনি like the most about this spot?
The অনুরাগী obviously. Our loyalty is something I’m very proud of. My পছন্দ sections are the picks that get আরো creative and funnier every দিন and of course the CBFFC where all my closest Chair অনুরাগী hang out at. It’s amazing how active we are even though the প্রদর্শনী is going cuckoo right now with forced and contrived storylines. The আরো shit they put us through, the stronger we get.
4.When did আপনি start shipping CB and why?
"And then the glorious limo sex happened, which officially got me on board with this ship."
When I started watching GG (winter 2009), I marathoned it so fast, I remember I caught up until 2x17 (the প্রদর্শনী was on hiatus at that time I think) in ONLY TWO DAYS, so it’s all a blur to me now. But I’m sure I saw some potential in the 1x03 scene in Blair’s room. And then the glorious limo sex happened, which officially got me on board with this ship.
5.Are they your OTP?
"They will forever have a special place in my heart."
My OTP is Jack and Kate from হারিয়ে গেছে (I ship them for way longer than CB and they’re the true definition of epic), but Chuck and Blair are a very, VERY close second. They’re the couple that got me hooked on fandom, they’re the reason I made a ফ্যানপপ account, heck – I didn’t even know what the term ‘shipping’ meant and how heavily is used on the internet before getting involved in them. They will forever have a special place in my heart. Corny, but I don’t care. 6.Are they your পছন্দ thing about Gossip Girl?
Totally. Both as a pairing and as individuals. I won’t be watching this crap of a প্রদর্শনী that’s become lately if it weren’t for them. Please let season 5 be the last one. I need my CB happy ending ASAP.
7.What do আপনি like the most about CB? What do they have that other couples don't?
"They really are special and not your typical bad boy/girl couple."
Well first, আপনি have Ed & Leighton's sizzling undeniable chemistry that just draws আপনি in this couple, and then আপনি have Chuck & Blair's general storyline. They really are special and not your typical bad boy/girl couple. They grew together, দ্বারা each other, through worst and best. They are these perfectly flawed characters that shake up the screen whenever they share scenes. They are fireworks. How can one not root for them? They are the definition of OTP. Meant-to-be is written all over their foreheads. The facts that they are made for one another are everywhere, from the littlest things like wearing matching outfits to the huge গাধা inevitable parallels. Whichever bogus the writers throw at them and whatever they're going through, they'll always find their way back and come out as winners out of all that. They've hit rock bottom, yet it's obvious that since they had come back from that almost undamaged that there's undoubtedly no such thing that can take them down. 8.What do আপনি like the most about Chuck and Blair as individuals?
One characteristic that they both share, that is also my favorite, is their loyalty. They’re always there for those they প্রণয় and care about and are always willing to help them. 9.Is there anything আপনি would change about them, if আপনি could?
I would definitely erase the IP. For two reasons; one, because I really want that out of their story and two, to shut up all those whiny Blair feminist stans that still can’t get over it and bring that in every argument against CB and Chuck.
10.What's your পছন্দ season? And your least favorite? Why?
"(Season 2) is the season that showcased real feelings from both of them."
My পছন্দ season for them is season 2. Before answering why, I’d like to say that I really, REALLY প্রণয় season 1 too cause it’s the beginning of them, and I have a huge soft spot for that season in general and get nostalgic about it every time I think about old school GG and CB. I প্রণয় season 2 the most cause it’s like a heaven of epic (as ‘epic’ as it can get in teen shows) CB moments and it’s the season that showcased real feelings from both of them. I know some people might say that they get tired of the whole ‘3 words 8 letters’ storyline, but I adored that, I loved how it started off in the season 2 premiere and how it came full বৃত্ত in the season 2 finale.
My least পছন্দ season would be season 3. The Ban shit that’s happening right now might make me rethink this, but the first half of season 4 was AH-MAZING nonetheless, while what I didn’t like about season 3’s first half was that CB were brought down to a guest তারকা level and basically shoved in the background. Though they did share some of the cutest scenes ever that still make me swoon beyond belief, then. Now সেকেন্ড half of season 3 did get আরো exciting, but there was too much unnecessary drama like the IP and the Chenny stuff. Hoping season 4 will bring আরো goodies when it’s back from hiatus and not continue with this Ban nonsense, অথবা season 4 will become my least favorite! 11.What's your পছন্দ episode? Why?
This is too hard. I feel like I could give a different answer every time আপনি ask me this question. I’ll go with 2x01, though. It has my number one CB scene of all times, it’s a great GG episode in general, amazing, and needless to say, the best premiere, the setting is beautiful, it setup their season 2 storyline… it was all around perfect. 12.If আপনি had the chance, what scene অথবা episode would আপনি erase from the show?
See answer to প্রশ্ন #9. ;)
13.If আপনি had the chance to write a scene for the show, how would it be like?
"They must share a dance every season."
Don’t ask me this. I’ll either make them too cheesy, too ansgty, অথবা have them have sex in every corner of the world, cause there’s never enough CB smexiness. Let’s say I’d write them a nice dance this season, cause my OCD is telling me that they must share a dance every season and that’s simple to write, so I wouldn’t mess anything.
14.What kind of CB scenes would আপনি like to see আরো in the show?
" Sexy and angsty."
Sexy and angsty. Can আপনি say I’m a sucker for angst? AND SEX? 15.Did আপনি ever cry watching some of their scenes?
Yes, quite a lot of times. Though, me crying on CB scenes happens আরো often when I re-watch their scenes অথবা when I’m watching some super angsty CB fanvids, usually while GG is throwing them under the bus with contrived storylines. 16.Do আপনি like the way their story has been handled?
Can’t say I completely do. আপনি know, there are two certainties in life; we’re all born to die, and the GG fandom, including me sometimes though I don’t really care about this প্রদর্শনী anymore, will always find something to complain about. I just really wish the writers give them what they deserve at the end.
17.When do আপনি think they will get back together again?
"I definitely do hope they end up this season on a good note."
I really don’t think they’re having their reunion at the end of season 4. But I definitely do hope they end up this season on a good note. Then, they could rebuild them in the course of season 5 cause I think the পরবর্তি reunion they’re having, will be for good. If they put them back together too soon, the bigger the chances of them being crashed দ্বারা an even bigger hoopla will be. So I’d rather wait. Maybe for the 100th GG episode, which is 5x13, methinks. :) 18.Do আপনি ship Chuck অথবা Blair with anyone else in the show?
NO. Never multishipped with them, never will. 19. What other GG couples do আপনি like and why?
Nenny and অগ্রদূত der Baizen along with Chair would be my perfect GG endgame trifecta. These three pairings combined have the best chemistry on this প্রদর্শনী and have (had) storylines with the biggest potential IMO. Too bad the other two weren’t প্রদত্ত another real chance. 20. What's the best part of shipping CB?
Being a part of the awesome fandom that CB shippers are, having guaranteed endgame, being graced with Ed and Leighton playing your পছন্দ couple and them shipping CB, saying all those wonderful things about them and about one another. 21. What do আপনি think about the haters? Do they bother you?
They can stay pressed forever for all I care, the stuff they say is rather delusional স্ল্যাশ laughable. And honestly? They made me ship CB even আরো hardcore and just brought us CB shippers even stronger. Win-win for us and our couple. 22. Define CB in:
