MERRY-GO-ROUND
gossip girl. blair/dan. 1k-ish words. ao3 link.
it happened one night AU. set in the 1930s.

summary: Blair should have known it wouldn't be that easy. One couldn't flee their own wedding with total disregard and jump on a bus heading west without facing a few consequences.

note: I'm on a roll! This is for nona. Enjoy!

Blair/Dan. Also Jenny, Serena, Vanessa.
2991 words. 90s musician au.

summary: Blair craves cameras long before she figures out what to do in front of them. To go from unremarkable to poreless, polished, perfect – it's something Blair quickly becomes addicted to.

gossip girl. 4045 words. 1940s au.
dan, nate, serena, blair. mostly gen with some romantic vibes.
w: general wartime sad stuff, character death, suicidal ideation.

summary: They meet in the trenches.

note: For [livejournal.com profile] lookinglassgirl! I know this is nothing you asked for, but once I had the idea I couldn't quite let it go, so I hope you like it! Tried to do as much research as I could in a few days but I'm sure there are still inaccuracies, haha. This idea ended up more ambitious than I realized. Thanks @ [livejournal.com profile] sing_song_sung; a couple of lines of this originally came from a joint fic that didn't quite pan out.


that doesn't mean there's nothing there )
margotttenenbaum: (Carter&Serena)
ANYBODY  ELSE  WOULD  BE  LONG  GONE
gossip girl. 1500 words. serena/carter.

summary: "I don't know what kind of life I want," Serena confesses. "All I know if that I don't like any of the ones I try."

note: For [livejournal.com profile] sing_song_sung! A little early because I had this one done first. I was legit thisclose to doing your DS ghost prompt, because who am I to resist such potentially romcom-esque shenanigans, but then I saw this post on tumblr and it felt like it kind of tied into your Serena/Carter prompt, so I ended up using it for the structure of the fic. ANYWAY, I hope you like it! :) Love these two messed up idiots.

you'll never be who you wanna be with all that money )

SAY  A  LITTLE  PRAYER
gossip girl. 8886 words. inspired by/based on my best friend's wedding.
serena, blair, carter, dan. one-sided serena/blair. dan/blair. serena & carter bros 4 lyf.

summary: Blair's birthday came first, of course, and they'd celebrated drunk in Paris, giggly and silly, and Blair had teased, Now if you don't get married in the next year, you're mine.

note: For anonymous! My deep apologies that this is a day late, but as you can see it ended up being...longer than anticipated, haha. I wrote this fic in something of a fugue state; I busted through it in the last three days in such a fever that I barely even remember doing it. So...that was weird. But I hope you like this! It was a v. fun prompt and I love this movie.

I’m a busy girl. I’ve got exactly four days to break up a wedding, steal the groom’s girl, and I haven’t one clue how to do it. )

Just figured I'd throw together a masterpost both for the sake of easier navigation and as a throwback to how we used to do things back in '08.

dan, blair, serena, others.
4478 words. a re-working of edith wharton's the age of innocence.

summary: Dan has, in many ways, accomplished everything he set out to do. He had a successful marriage, wonderful children, and a rewarding career. But he knows that even so, there has always been something missing.

note: It seems very fitting for me to finish this fic at Christmas considering that is when I started it, for one of my December prompts three entire years ago. I'm happy to conclude it. It might be the longest fic I've ever written (though we know how much of that is due to Ms. Edith herself and not me) and potentially the most ambitious. I hope you guys enjoy the end, and that it was worth me taking three years and a day to finish! Happy Christmas & other holidays & happy Thursday/Friday if you don't celebrate!

dan, blair, serena, others.
5848 words. a re-working of edith wharton's the age of innocence.

summary: They see one another at almost the same moment, Blair lagging a mere breath behind, and the sharp, vivid recognition in her face seems to stop the progress of Dan's pulse and start it again.

good night bad morning
dan/blair. dan/georgina.
s3 au. 19k words.

summary: Blair refuses to be so hard up that she's giving Dan Humphrey the eye.

note: my exchange fic! written for [livejournal.com profile] stainofmylove! a college au in which blair is hella thirsty for dan but pretends not to be, everyone turns a benevolent blind eye to their flirty nonsense, and they work out their relationship issues to generally positive results. probably won't repost it here because it's annoyingly long, so link takes you to ao3. i just like to keep track of stuff here.

( Georgina and Humphrey have been fucking for four and a half weeks and it's driving Blair crazy )
margotttenenbaum: (Beverly Hills 90210)
I recently watched Grosse Pointe, which was a (delightful) cancelled sitcom from 2000 that aired on the WB, written and created by Darren Star (of Sex and the City and Beverly Hills, 90210 fame). It only ran for seventeen episodes and was based on Star’s experiences on the set of 90210, so it’s a really interesting, very meta, behind-the-scenes look at the running of a teen melodrama on a semi-major network. The show within a show is called Grosse Pointe, about affluent teenagers in a Michigan (?) suburb, though it’s pretty blatantly 90210 and a lot of the character/actors are meant to stand in for each other. You get all these great hints of the show-within-the-show and how absurd it is, as well all the backstage drama like actors dating each other and backstabbing and going on the WB message boards to talk shit under pseudonyms, lol. It’s pretty fantastic, especially as a fan of the teen show genre.

margotttenenbaum: (DB; lipstick and callous)
tell me something true
dan/blair. jenny, vanessa, iz, penelope, nate.
s1 au. 14k words. Selfie/Drive Me Crazy-inspired.

summary: It was simple, really: Blair would take Dan from pariah to belle of the ball (she'd done much more with much less in the past), and he would make her…socially pleasant to be around and more considerate of others.

note: for [livejournal.com profile] lookinglassgirl! your prompt was too too too good, I was so excited to write it. I only hope I did it justice! please accept this belated Christmas gift as a belated birthday gift (so belated omg I'm the worst)! this fic is 50% selfie, 50% drive me crazy, 100% idiots.



Dan is either really good at acting, or he's awful at it. )
