Gossip Girl: Dan/Blair recs

Fandom: Gossip Girl
Pairing: Dan/Blair
Fic Title: Your Notes Hold the World Spellbound
Author: vinewood and dragon heartstring
Link: FFNet
Rating/Warning(s): M/R
Genre: Romance, one shot
Why This Must Be Read: Fandom is currently in a tizzy about this pairing. Those that have wanted them together since season 1 look like they are finally having their day and their numbers are swelling. The fans of other ships have started the negative campaigns already. This has resulted in two tropes (for a ship that is just beginning) - that D/B is a prop for the original ships; OR that D/B is the secret OTP that the producers have been hiding all this time. This fic combines both tropes. A highly speculative future fic.
WIP? No.

Why This Must Be Read: Fandom is currently in a tizzy about this pairing.  This has resulted in two tropes (for a ship that is just beginning) - that D/B is a prop for the original ships; OR that D/B is the secret OTP that the producers have been hiding all this time. This fic belongs to the "Affair to Remember" camp. The language is languid, taking much inspiration from. F. Scott Fitzgerald. It chronicles a love that was doomed from the start, and the writer makes you root for them anyway. future fic.
WIP? Yes

Pairing: Dan/Blair, Dan/Vanessa, Dan/Serena (need to create tags for these other ships)
Fic Title: Maybe
Author: Faryn Queens
Link:
FFNet
Rating/Warning(s): T/PG
Genre: Romance/Mystery
Why This Must Be Read: Future fic. Uses the premise of the movie Definitely, Maybe, it chronicles the story of Dan as he talks about the 3 most significant girlfriends of his life to his daughter. Like the movie, the daughter and the reader has to figure out who the mom is. The author assures that she is not using the structure of the movie, hence the order by which the girls are revealed has no significance on who the mom is.  Currently, the third girlfriend is yet to be revealed, but it is apparently Blair. But like the movie, Dan would likely still end up with a different woman from the woman who became his daughter's mom. The interactions between Dan and the OC daughter are endearing. It's a love story mystery, and we're all still trying to guess who the mom is.
WIP? Yes
