What Do You Believe In? Chapter 31: Nar Tohumum

Teaser: 

Chuck had half a thought to say something of his concern to Blair as he stepped off the elevator. But suddenly, he found himself unable to hold his bag. It hit the ground with an unceremonious thud, somewhere on par with the decibel level of his heartbeat thudding in his ears. His Queen had become a Goddess. 

Blair leaned back against the wall of the foyer, waiting for him. Her luscious hair was a cascade of perfect loose curls. She’d tucked her hands behind her back, pushing her chest out. The thinnest strap of purple held up the camisole she wore, her breasts showing through a meager layer of golden lace before it changed to a sheer purple fabric beneath her breasts. The small scrap of cream that covered her sex was little more than an idea of panties and the long golden ribbons, tied into elegant bows at her hips, mocked him. She’d finished her outfit with her favorite cream Louboutin peep toes. Fine with him, it gave her more height. All the easier to fuck her while standing. 

Because there was no way in hell they were going to make it past the foyer. 

“Blair.” The sound was low, from the back of his throat.

“Welcome home, Charles,” she teased him. “Would you like a glass of scotch?” 

His ‘no’ rumbled out behind clenched teeth and he jerked his belt open.

47 Days of Chair || Day Eleven: Favorite Chuck moment

“I want to apologize, son.”
“Apologize.”
“I never blamed you for your mother’s death. I read that short story that Dan Humphrey wrote about you and your mother, I had no idea you felt that way, and it’s my fault. I know I’ve had trouble being close to you, but it’s not for the reasons you think. It’s just hard because every time I look at you I see her.”
“You miss her.”
“You have no idea. I’ve made some terrible mistakes in my life, but I don’t want to make another. I want to know my son. So, any interest in going to that hockey game?”
“I’ll clear my calendar.”

-_-

I still want to know wtf Bart’s deal was in the end.

Blair is so happy. And look at Chuck’s face. She knows. She *knows* he’s right across the hall. And what it’s going to do to him. Her proximity, the flirting, the eye sex, her little pajamas. He’s Chuck Bass. And he’s going to lay in his bed and get off so hard thinking about her. He could show her just what she won. That silky little headband would be perfect for tying her hands together. And God knows that flimsy excuse for pajamas couldn’t keep her from him. Just…right across the hall.

Translated by &#8220;Crystal&#8221;, who translated my Love You Some Day into Chinese, with a polish by me, we are so happy to bring you a not entirely awful translation of Ed&#8217;s February 2014 GQ China interview! There are a few rough patches, and I left one translation note in because proverbs are often times miserable or impossible to translate. Article &#8216;headers&#8217; are in bold. We hope you enjoy our efforts! 
The bad boy “Chuck” whom all the girls ache for, is ready to become a captain above the Pacific Ocean. Showing a real man’s style, which means no matter what happens, the only exit is to control the privilege — “Make the world smaller”.
When Ed Westwick was holding a red lantern, the whole studio was suddenly a festival atmosphere.
“Do you know the meaning of red lantern?”
His eyebrow raised. I tried my best to tell him the story, which is not a happy one. His bad boy smile disappeared. “Women in the past were so tragic… Actually, I’ve always liked women from the east. I feel that under their elegant appearances, a lot of stories are hidden.”
This sentence is also suitable for Jessica Szohr who broke up with him many times. However, he politely refused to answer any question related to their relationship. So we formally started our conversion from his upcoming new movie “Last Flight”.
Beginning the leading role journey in an amazing place
The film is a 3D thriller movie, shot in Bangkok. Ed was the first choice for the leading male role. The producer, Mr. Zhou, said, ”Although he is young, only 26 years old, he shows a strong sense of men and has the potential to act captain. Of course, it is because he has a strong fans base in China.”
This movie brought Ed’s destined fate with China to reality: A TV drama star is ready to shoot a movie. Here was his opportunity. A handsome and responsible captain boards a plane which takes off from a small island in Pacific Ocean.
“The whole story is quite amazing. In your language, it is called…Yuanfen (something that is destined to happen)?” He thought about his wording, until he saw the surprise smile on other people. “This movie planned to begin shooting last August. When the team first contacted me, my schedule was full at that time. But later, my dad passed away. In order to attend the funeral, my schedule changed a little, giving me that August. Due to the long distance, I thought it would be better for me to relieve my grief if I left the United States for a while. Go somewhere tropical- Bangkok, and then go to China, a country which is attractive enough upon hearing its name.”
Probably, he became happy in the end. But he complained a little bit in a joking way, “This movie was absolutely hard labor.” One particular scene required a lot ofCGI. On that day, Ed was hanging by a harness in front of a green screen. He usually did each of his scenes at most two times. However, because that scene required many actors to cooperate, this one scene was shot 7 or 8 times. “It was tiring and painful. But you know, as a man, these two adjectives should not be mentioned.”
The high temperatures and humidity was another difficulty. It was rainy season when the movie was shot. A sudden rainstorm would disturb all of the plans and he had to get used to the rain though he sweating, too. “An amazing place.” He said about Bangkok, as well as the huge tropical plants, whose growth made him feel he should work hard to recover from his grief. He even made friend with a local restaurant owner. “I swear when this movie is a hit, I will bring all the staff to have a dinner at his restaurant.”
In Ed’s opinion, Captain Charles Gillis was a person who had everything under control. And the producer Mr.Zhou thinks the role is Ed himself. “Off camera, he is easygoing and feel comfortable around people. He likes playing games. He installed game machines in his room so that he could play games as soon as he got into his room. He doesn’t need time to be in the role. He is a talented actor. Whatever I want, he understands immediately. When we start again, he will give me a totally different performance from the former one. He doesn’t need to come to me and talk about the script everyday. Before the start of shooting, he spent a day with me on the script and understood all the requirements. After that, our daily shooting went smoothly. If it is not his scene, he will stay in his room. When he walks out of his room, he is the captain. Some actors will chat with each other while the staff changes the backgrounds. Ed never talked too much. He didn’t communicate with other actor except for script related thing. He just stood aside and kept his feeling for the role. As for the actors who chatted, they always took some time to adapt to the camera. They might overact. But Ed never did.”
“This is what a Hollywood actor is.” Mr.Zhou concluded. “They have a great but simple ability. This is a commercial movie. What kind of character the producer wants? Ok, I will play it out. If it is right, then I keep doing it. If not, use another expression immediately. No emotion. No argument. No complaint. They are loyal to their profession. Absolutely efficient.”
But Ed said he had emotions on set. “The first scene I shot is me, as a captain, standing in front of the door and welcoming all the boarding travellers. At that time, I told myself, great, this is the way I welcome myself.”
He implied a really important point. Welcome what part of the self? With no doubt, the leading role life that every actor wants begins.
A common problem for this century —Sad &amp; Bad
We have to mention “Gossip Girl”, which made millions of people know and love him. Because of it, Ed’s “problem” came — five years in succession. He always repeats one sentence: Chuck and I are totally different.
Ed’s background has no similarity with Chuck’s. His father is a lecturer at a University and his mother is a specialist in educational psychology. No one in his family has interest in acting. And his parents never expected their family to have a big star. His mother thought he just loved watching plays when she dropped him to drama school every Saturday. He witnessed his brothers go through puberty. So when he was at that age, he didn’t have the desire to go through what his brothers had experienced. “Although I can easily go bad, generally, I was a good kid.”
As for Ed, “bad” is not a personality but an ability. When he flew to New York from Britain for the interview, he didn’t get the leading male role — Nate. But he made the bad boy role attractive. “I enjoyed the whole process. At first, Chuck is a guy who always plays tricks. But I like the character. He brought out a lot of fun in me. The more I understood the character, the more I felt that, oh, here is a beating heart! In other word, the heart doesn’t know how to beat because it has been forgotten. Just let me act out how he gradually finds the way to his beating heart.”
He made “bad” become a quality that is easier for people to remember him by. A smirk, fair eyes but with sadness in them. He falls in love with someone for whom he betrays his oldest friend for. But when she puts him into aside, he seeks revenge on her for his own satisfaction. But when you hurt someone you care about, you hurt yourself. This feeling is shared by the audience.
Because he acted in Alfonso Cuaron’s “The Children of Men” and Anthony Minghella’s “Breaking and Entering”, some people think he learned from Jude Law’s bad but sexy performance in “Breaking and Entering”. But Ed doesn’t agree. “It seems that it is better for you to praise someone’s talent than someone’s accomplishment.” The curve of his smirk proves that the meaning of bad is to be yourself.
“He knows he fits the bad boy style. And he also knows what poses can express the bad boy feeling the best. He knows what differentiates him from other stars. In all, he knows himself very well.”
Taking the right way is the essential for success
It took six years —six seasons’ TV drama to make this “bad boy” a superstar. Sometimes, it only needs a moment. This dazzling moment happened after the premier of J.Edgar. Before he understood what was happening, people ran to him. He had to ask a police officer to escort him to cross the street. At that time, the only sentence kept repeating. “What the hell is this?”
What is worse is that photos of his girlfriend and him were everywhere in the world. People talked about their unstable relationship: meeting parents, going vacation, watching basketball games, breaking up and going back together. “Gossip Girl” is crazy enough. He doesn’t want his personal life to be discussed like what happened in the drama. If that happens, the audience will regard him as a Chuck in real life. Then what he did when he was acting Chuck becomes meaningless.
Most of the news about Ed and his girlfriend stopped by the end of 2010. After that, he kept a low profile. He was in a band named “The Filthy Youth”. Now, he doesn’t want to talk about it.
The fear brought by the crowd of people was soon replaced by surprise. The achievement of this profession must be marked by fame. And fans are the best reward. Gradually, he got used to the screaming and pushing. He had the big star style now.
“Did fame change you?” I asked.
He laughed. “I just enjoy the happiness brought by my job. As for fame, it is not in my consideration. Of course, it is great to know that someone likes me or likes one of my works.”
It is a safe answer. But to find out what a person is, is to see his action not his words. At least, it has been a while that there is no more photos of half-naked Ed and his girlfriend kissing beside the swimming pool. Instead, we see them in white T-shirts, holding grocery bags.
26-year-old Ed tries to be considerate. Probably because he knows he is becoming a bright star. At this sensitive and important moment, he can’t go wrong.
No regrets and no forecast
His other new movie “Romeo and Juliet” will be on screen soon.
He talked about Italy, where they shot at a lot of landmarks. The sunlight has no difference between 16 centuries and now. “Did that sad story move you?”
“Of course, such a story can move every one.”
A few years ago, Ed mentioned his thoughts on love. (Here they use an old Chinese saying, which means there are a lot of choices in the world. You don’t have to stick with someone who breaks your heart or has no interest in you.) But being in a long relationship has changed him. “No matter how old you are, people will always be obsessed with someone or love someone deeply. If you think him or her is your soul mate and you really feel the connection between you, your life will have some changes. Your career may succeed or damage it.”
Perhaps that last question can be concluded to one question: how to balance all the wants?
Ed’s answer is that what matters is pursuing what you want. “I hate that kind of regret: I should have set a life goal but I didn’t. Life is wasted and the scenery along the journey is not fully seen.”
He doesn’t agree with the concept that at each age, people are supposed to do something. “I believe people should do what they want, not what they are supposed to. It’s an obvious choice.” His motto is “never say never”. So in all these years, he played in band and worked as staff for the movies. Although now he is successful as an actor, Ed doesn’t plan to be actor forever. “I only want to do what makes me excited. It may be shooting movies or building a house. Life is like a screw. It can turn to any direction at any time. So, who can forecast what will happen tomorrow?”
“Sometimes the world is small in our eyes, especially in this industry. It seems like you can overcome everything. But I would be careful. At the same time, believing you can ‘make the world smaller’ is an incredible privilege. This may be the only way for me to find a breakthrough.”
At this time, we are willing to forecast the future, “He will become hit in Hollywood soon. His busy but happy expression says so.”

The only thing we can’t forecast is, when that day really comes, what will conquer the world? Ed’s good or bad?

Ed Westwick for GQ China February 2014

I wanted to watch some GG today and as I turned the pilot on, I couldn’t help asking myself to view it through the endgame reveal that Dan is Gossip Girl. I also couldn’t help but look for other interesting holes the following 5.5 seasons (or the episode itself!) created…

-       Structure of ‘Gossip Girl’ – blasts, versus blog, versus narrations. As the show develops, we see Gossip Girl function in a ‘blast’ capacity, like S’s return in the pilot going out as text messages to subscribers. This makes the show’s narration feature odd. They sound like blog posts being read, something that we never see on the GG site in-show.

-       Pilot issue: Some shows will reshoot a pilot before airing. Gossip Girl is not one of them. So we see issues like casting (Blair’s mom), character stories, and ‘sets’ that are not used once the show was officially put into production.

-       Serena at Grand Central. What is going on here? The show later gives us heaps of backstory about what happened to S from the night she slept with Nate until returning home. Almost. Where was she this summer? If the story about Serena and Ben took place in the spring, then Serena coming back to Constance in the fall had already been negotiated by Lily (something of which I also wonder at being kept quiet, someone would have known Serena was coming back if Lily had to arrange for it). So where was Serena this summer? In 1x10 there is mention that she spent the summer abroad (wanting to show Cece the photos). Even with dysfunctional parenting included, would Lily really do that, let her go off on her own all summer? We’re supposed to believe the motivating factor for Serena’s sudden return is Eric’s attempted suicide, but that doesn’t fit with Serena returning to Constance as per the Ben plot line. She’s also either returning to school the day before it starts (not likely with the party invites bit- someone asked Jenny to make them in art class) or she’s returning after classes already began. Wth?

-       When Serena enters the Waldorf townhouse, the gossip swirling around her is great: “…pregnant.” “rehab.” “She looks good.”

-       Lily talking about a Murakami print clashing with her sofa. Awesome giggle when Rufus makes a jab about this habit later.

-       Cinemagraphic perfection: Serena, Nate, and Blair at 4:30.

-       “Who am I? That’s one secret I’ll never tell.” Shot of Dan on the Gossip Girl site. With his non-existent cat.

-       Serena sleeping in Eric’s room at the center. Lily, what are you doing? There’s dysfunctional and then there is what were you doing all night that you didn’t think you should find S and haul her ass home? And then making that snarky comment about wanting your daughter to sleep at home. OMG, no. Just don’t.

-       “Eric’s visiting Grandpa in Rhode Island.” Hahaha, what grandfather?? “No, your Aunt Carol in Miami.” HA! Excuse me what? You mean the one who wants to keep her daughter away from the crazy so badly no one knows what she looks like? The one you pretend doesn’t exist in regards to just about everything?

-       Jenny on Rufus’s anti-capitalist rants. Something they never again mention taken from the book!Rufus.

-       Probably don’t need to comment on the bus scene, do I? Out of all of them: Chuck. Chuck on a bus.

-       MySpace.

-       When Bendel’s still had clothes…

-       Jenny on Rufus and fashion: “And Dad’s allergic to department stores.” Even more awesome when you think about the stuff he wears after marrying Lily.

-       Chuck: “Happiness does not seem to be on the menu.” ^_^

-       Jenny setting up Dan to go to the Palace? Love it. We’re supposed to think she saw the GG blast we just heard in narration, but she was probably actually watching the site for Dan, as he said she helped in early days.

-       I personally always found it a bit odd how much more included overall Lily and Rufus were in the central stories than other parents. Their first scene is pretty fun to watch though.

-       Jenny’s naivety with Chuck is hard to buy when you know she’s plugged into Gossip Girl. She seems partially prepared for him, but wanting to make a name for herself or not, I don’t think she would have tried to mess with Chuck right off. That said, it could also tie into a failure to have Chuck fully fleshed out as a character as well (something we know the writers had not planned for. Chuck was thought of as a side character initially). 

-       The champion error of this episode? The timeline!
Timeline Errors: Jenny’s text for the fashion emergency is sent on Sept. 24, 2007, which is a Monday. Okay, good.
So  that means the episode opens on a Sunday,  then we then see most all of Monday and it is the night on which everything blows up.
The party is on Saturday night, as proclaimed on the Met steps. If Dan ran into Serena at the Palace after she met with Blair (on the steps: Can we meet tonight, 8pm?), did he keep her phone all week?
When Dan returns the phone, they are talking about the Kiss on the Lips party being tonight. Which makes it Saturday.
But, lo, Jenny’s “help” texts concerning Chuck are sent at 9:14pm on September 25, 2007. A…Tuesday.
The cellphone issue, the timestamps, and the overall continuous scenes with other characters (Nate and the Captain mention ‘last night’ then when Nate and Blair meet, they talk about the party ‘tonight’) make the missing Tuesday through Friday quite alarming.
