"I can’t believe Nate’s finally coming home tomorrow! Did I tell you that he texts me every night before he goes to sleep? It’s so sweet."
"With enough time, we all find what we’re looking for, even if it was there all along."
"I’ve known Serena since I was a little kid."
"You and Nate can finally be more than just an affair to remember."
"Which is why we didn’t want to wait for it to start."
"You are the only thing Nate’s always wanted but could never have."
"I should have never listened to Dan."
"I really always hope that Blair is wrong about these things, but if the only reason you want to be with me is because I’m with someone else, then you can forget it."
"No, I want to be here with you. I just got scared that if we moved too fast, things weren’t gonna work out, and I really don’t want that to happen. Okay, because I’ve waited… I’ve waited a really long time for this."
"This was probably the best first date ever. Promise me, no more slow."
"Well, what if it’s a good kind of slow?"
"With enough time eventually we all see what was right in front of us, and realise no matter how long it took, it was worth the wait."

3x17, The Inglorious Basstards.
Wow, that was a though one because I absolutely LOVE 3x10/3x11 storyline-wise, but this episode was the best Serenate episode for me. For once they were together and happy and I can see Serena planning on surprising Nate for his birthday since they were little kids. I can see how much she antecipated for this moment (she could have helped when he was with Blair, but it wasn’t the same) and how much she wanted it to be perfect for him. I think the show failed in showing us Serena’s side of the story but not in this episode. You cannot unwrite her face. She’s so in love she doesn’t even know how to behave herself. Also, THOSE LAST SCENES. It’s my shipper dream, tbh.
"Seriously? Best birthday ever".
serenate appreciation week | day one: the moment you started shipping them
"Oh, come on Nate, when have you ever been happy?"
"Wow, the gloves are off today, aren’t they?"
"Well, I am feeling frisky, you know how I get in the summer."
"Yeah, I do."
"Well, you won’t have to witness any of it. I’m locking myself away in the Hamptons house, it’s a summer to reflect alone."
"I could not agree more. I just need to take a break away from everything and everyone."
"Hey, if you wanna reflect alone together, I’ll be around."
"What are you up to now?"
is there anything else to ship? <3
watch for the Serenate Appreciation Week that starts today/tomorrow (depending on your timezone)
nate and serena appreciation week | day one - the moment you started to ship them
1x14, Bad News Blair.
I have to rant about why I started to ship Nate and Serena in this episode, in such a random scene. It was the first episode after the writers’ strike. I started watching Gossip Girl in 1x07 and I shipped (trust me) Dan and Serena. Not fiercely, but I did. I only watched the first seven episodes during the writers’ strike and I fell in love with their backstory. I hate abandoning ships so, even though I knew I liked Nate and Serena better, I held on to my DS shipping for a while.
HOWEVER, when 1x14 aired (after ages) I had already rewatched all the Nate and Serena scenes and when this happened it was BAM. OTP. One True Pair. They finally can talk to each other as friends again. They finally can be around each other but they still know each other SO WELL and she knows all his weak spots (aka her cute faces) and it just flows so naturally. You can sense they have known and loved each other their whole LIVES.
She’s also so glad that one of her UES friends finally aknowledges that Dan is good for her. You can see it means the world to her. And also Nate’s face. And also those Christmas lights and everything about this scene. I can’t. My OTP is flawless and this started everything.
