Adam Brody and Leighton Meester’s marriage is nothing if not the perfect excuse for fans of The O.C. and Gossip Girl to write a little fan fiction. For one, Josh Schwartz created both shows and has himself thrown around some fan fiction about how Nate Archibald and Taylor Townsend ended up together. So why not Seth and Blair?
They both come from rich families, and they both know all the ingredients of a good bat mitzvah, not to mention that the Cohens are one of those rare California families that knows how to appreciate a quality bagel. Plus, Seth has experience when it comes to seeing through the popular-girl facade and getting to know more about someone. And Blair? Well, we’re sure Caleb would have approved.
But when it really comes down to it, combining these two worlds isn’t exactly easy. Private school in New York City looks a lot different (and a lot paler) than private school in Orange County. And I doubt Blair would feel “at home” at a sweaty Newport party. However, there have been some fan fiction authors who’ve managed to meld these two worlds to create the perfect scenario for Seth and Blair’s romance.
And although I prefer my Seth with Summer and my Blair with Chuck, even I can’t deny the creativity behind some of the fan fiction out there. We’ve rounded up some of the best moments for your reading enjoyment: READ FULL STORY
