|basically my life advice is to never care about anything

I like you.
WELL, AT LEAST THIS WILL BE THE LAST TIME THAT THIS FUCKING SHOW DRIVES ME TO DRINK. |
Like I can't, I CANNOT EVEN. I am laughing hysterically because holy fuck I cared so much about what ended up being the worst show ever. WHY. WHY. WHY WOULD YOU BUILD UP AN AMAZING PAIRING ONLY TO DESTROY IT. WHY WOULD YOU PORTRAY CHUCK/BLAIR AS BASICALLY THE WORST THING EVER AND DRIVE IT INTO THE GROUND ONLY TO BRING IT BACK ONCE BLAIR IS ACTUALLY IN A FUNCTIONING RELATIONSHIP WITH SOMEONE WHO GENUINELY LOVES HER.
How do you go from this:
Blair: What if I lose everything?
Dan: You'll still have me.
Chuck: I have nothing.
Blair: You have me.
Chuck: That’s not enough.
AND STILL HAVE THE SECOND ONE BE THE WINNER? HOW DID THOSE LINES ACTUALLY JUST HAPPEN IN THIS EPISODE AND BLAIR STILL ENDED UP WITH CHUCK? HAS THERE LITERALLY EVER BEEN A CHARACTER MORE POORLY WRITTEN THAN BLAIR WALDORF? SHE IS ACTUALLY THE WORST. And it seemed like the writers were trying to build her back up again after the clusterfuck that was the Louis thing, and helping that along with a wonderfully supportive boyfriend, and now she's just...completely and totally regressed to this bullshit. Even her chance for a career was handed to her by her mother. Who even is this Blair Waldorf? How is it that anyone came up with these ideas and wrote these scenes and looked at their work and thought it was good? WHAT IS THE POINT OF ANYTHING?
But seriously good fucking god. I mean, I've cared a lot about a lot of TV in my time, and have been invested in a lot of pairings, and this is genuinely the most baffling, terrible, and ridiculous thing I have ever seen happen on a show. I mean, this is Twilight levels of disheartening. I tend to be ridiculously loyal to fandoms, and watch shows through, and stay until the bitter end, but I've never been less interested in anything than I am in the next season of sad, pathetic Blair begging for Chuck to love her again. Not even Penn Badgley's adorable curls can bring me back for this bullshit. Fuck everything.
Anyway, so those are my feelings on that. My birthday's this Friday (the 18th!) and I have Big Plans to finish this One Direction fic and post it that day, so I'm going to go work some more on that now.
In the meantime, if you're looking for a good alcoholic beverage, lately I've found that mixing Bolthouse Farms Vanilla Chai Tea (basically this is flavored soy milk) with flavored vodka creates some real magic. So far I've tried it with coconut vodka and whipped cream vodka. Basically the chai has enough going on nutrient-wise that you can't really get a hangover. It's great. AND IT'S ALSO SOMETHING DELICIOUS TO DROWN YOURSELF IN IF YOU'VE ALSO BEEN FOOLISH ENOUGH TO CARE ABOUT THE WASTE OF FUCKING EMOTIONAL INVESTMENT THAT IS STUPID GOSSIP GIRL.
