Nate and Jenny Tropes Picspam  
for the current challenge @ [info]picspammy
spoilers for seasons 1, 2, and 3 of gossip girl
thanks to hider and martina for some of the quotes
join nate_jenny for all your shipping needs!


Gossip Girl: What have we here? Jenny Humphrey caught in her knickers by Nate, her Knight in Shining Armani.
 -2x08; Pret-a-Por J
A significant chunk of Nate and Jenny's relationship is built on the foundation of these three tropes. Nate Archibald has this constant need to save, rescue, and protect Jenny Humphrey. It's in his blood. It doesn't matter what else has happened between them, who's involved or what the consequences are. When she needs him, he's there. No questions or explanations needed (just don't ask him to define or even think about his feelings for her). They've even lampshaded their dynamic on the show by having Jenny mention it a couple of times. She's also saved him right back quite a bit as well, but more in an "emotional" sense. They truly have one of the most unique dynamics I've ever seen. That's why it's sad to say that there's no guarantee they'll ever be together for real, let alone end up together.

Jenny: How could you do that to me?! 
Nate: What are you talking about?! You're lucky I showed up when I did! That was a bad scene, Jenny. 
Jenny: No, it wasn't. We were dancing around in our underwear, not making a porno! 
Nate: Not yet, anyway! 
Jenny: No, no ever! I would never let myself get into a situation like that. I know what I'm doing, Nate! 
Nate: I know you think you do but that guy was taking advantage of you! 
Jenny: Okay, you are not my father and you are not my brother, so why do you care so much? 
Nate: Because. 

[A shocked Jenny leans in and kisses Nate]

[After Nate just stands there, she tries to run away embarassed. Nate grabs her by the arm and pulls her toward him. He kisses her back passionately.]

Gossip Girl: But I'll confess, every once in a while, a girl craves her fairytale ending. So sleep tight little kiddies, it looks like Little J got her happily ever after. xoxo Gossip Girl.

Nate: Dan...hey.
[Dan grabs Nate and pushes him against the wall]
Nate: What are you doing?
Dan: What am I doing? What are you doing? Or is that not you with my fifteen year old sister? 
Nate: Okay whoa whoa just calm down. 
Dan: We took you into our house Nate.
Nate: Look Dan, it's not like I planned on it alright? Things just happen. I'm sorry. Come on. She's a sophomore, I'm a senior. Don't act like I'm some creepy older guy. 
Dan: No, you're the guy who traded sex for money. 
Nate: My God...Vanessa.
Dan: It's amazing I don't want you with my little sister. 
Nate: Okay look I'm sorry I didn't say anything about Jenny okay...but you have no right to judge me.
Dan: Where is she?
Nate: I don't even know. She went off to find Agnes. Do you want me to come help you find her?
-2x09; There Might Be Blood

Nate: [holding Jenny's hand] Oh my god, you're shaking.
Jenny: Yeah...I didn't...I didn't know that Lily and Bart were getting an award...and I'm about to ruin the night of people who've only ever been nice to me, Nate.
Nate: Then just forget about it. You don't have to go through with this. There are other ways.
Jenny: Have you not heard anything I've said Nate? This is it. Tonight's all I have...I don't even know...
[Nate kisses her and Jenny kisses back; Mini!Serena takes a picture of them]
Jenny: You kissed me again.
Nate: I know. Jenny: So...does that mean you don't regret last week?
Nate: Guess not. Jenny, whatever you decide. I'm with you.
Jenny: Okay

-2x09; There Might Be Blood
Jenny: Homework, headset, hang bag. Check, check, check. I have to pee. [Ignoring the yells of Dan and Rufus] Have you guys seen my sketchbook?!
Nate: Whoa, sorry! Oh my God, Jenny! [Laughing]
Jenny: Sorry! [Getting distracted by his naked chest.]
Nate: Did you do something with your hair?
Jenny: Uh... yeah. Shorter, blonder, I was bored. Nate: I like it, it looks... It looks good.
Jenny: Thanks.
Nate: Oh, go ahead, use the bathroom. I'm sorry, I didn't mean to-
Jenny: Oh, no! I'm gonna go, it's fine, I'll just pee at work.
Nate: No, no, no, no-
Jenny: No, it's fine!
Nate: Okay...

[Jenny runs across the room and jumps into Nate's arms; they kiss and Vanessa sees]
Nate: It looks great.
Jenny: Thank you!
Nate: Yes!
Jenny: Oh my God...Vanessa! [starts to go after her] Vanessa wait!
Nate: Jenny, Jenny stop. It's not your place.
Jenny: No, I have to say something. Stop! [pushes Nate away] I shouldn't have done that. I'm sorry. Vanessa!
[Jenny runs after Vanessa]
Nate: Jenny!
Gossip Girl: Looks like it's hoes before bros for Little J. Who knew when her loyalty kicked in, Nate would be kicked out?
-2x09; There Might Be Blood


Nate: I wrote you this letter after the fashion show. Telling you I had feelings for you. 
Jenny: I never got that. 
Nate: I know. Vanessa stole it. 
-2x12; It's a Wonderful Lie

She still never saw what was in that letter. It was beautiful. Poo on Vanessa.


Nate: [has mistaken Jenny for Serena] Serena just don't say anything and let me explain.
Jenny: [whispers] Oh my god.
Nate: I am trying to do the right thing but it's killing me. Look, I know we both care about Blair but maybe the best thing is for me is to tell her the truth. I'm not over you. I thought I could fight it but I can't.
And if you don't stop me I am gonna kiss you.
[Nate turns her around and kisses her; Jenny pushes him away and runs away. Serena enters behind him.]
Serena: Nate.
Nate: What...eh...
-1x06; The Handmaiden's Tale


Okay so...what the hell was that?
What do you mean? We were playing and I killed you.
Jenny us hanging out was...just as friends.
Jenny: Yeah I know. Nate seriously I thought that you'd be happy I was finally having fun again.
-3x17; Inglorious Bassterds


Jenny: [holding up her Polaroid] You're the birthday boy. I shall let you kill me. 
[Nate goes to reach for it, but Jenny kisses him and grabs his instead!]
Jenny: Uh oh, you're dead. 
[Jenny leaves; Nate is Natefused]
-3x17; Inglorious Bassterds


Gossip Girl: While most people think it's our brain that controls our actions, it's often our heart that gets the biggest workout...it can make us do the craziest of things.
-3x18; The Unblairable Lightness of Being


Nate: Nice shirt by the way.
Oh yeah sorry...it looked really comfy to sleep in.
-3x19; Dr. Estrangeloved

Playful. Angsty. Sad. Intrigued. Defiant. Lovestruck. They've had it all. It's kind of a thing between them, especially Nate who has patented "The Jenny Look".

Gossip Girl: "When the family tree falls, we all need a friend to lead us out of the woods…or into them.
But be careful, once darkness descends true natures emerge and everything is fair game…until morning."
-3x21; Ex-Husbands and Wives

: Thanks for listening to me last night.
Nate: Yeah no problem. You know I'm here for you...whatever you need.
Jenny: But?
Nate: I just don't want you to get the wrong impression.
Jenny: [chuckles] Don't worry I get it. You and I are friends. You love Serena. 
-3x22; Last Tango, Then Paris

Even after Jenny tried to break him and Serena up, when she had nowhere else to go, he opened up his home to her. He forgave her with one look and listened to her talk all night long (until he fell asleep). He said he's always be there for her (unfortunately he wasn't there to stop her from losing her virginity to Chuck, but that's another story.)

Not a big fan of Nate and Jenny, but I agree with you regarding the love letter lunacy. Why couldn't have Nate sent an email or a text? This storyline was totally dropped.
Susan: {actors} taylor momsen: shyburstoflight on July 3rd, 2010 07:00 pm (UTC)
Storylines are always dropped on this show. *shrugs*

Thanks for your comment.

Nate and jenny belong together they have a great big buildup that's why I always get mad how every damn season the writers always give nate a new lame girlfriend instead of using these two

Karen! Thanks so much! And I agree! It's such a useless storyline. They only bring the girl in through Nate because they have nothing else to do with him. BLAH.

There is SO MUCH between Nate and Jenny. If only the show would pick their storyline back up. So much wasted potential.

Thank you! And I totally agree. Nate/random is such an annoying plotline. It's such a cheap way of creating drama for the other characters.

This is pretty! NJ have grown on me over the years... I was against them in S1, open in S2, and then kind of rooting for them in S3. I just wish the show had handled it differently not made her seem so psycho... it made it a totally uneven playing field against Saint Serena. :(
Susan: {ggr} nate and jenny: save you againburstoflight on July 3rd, 2010 09:07 pm (UTC)
She really wasn't that psycho to me. She really didn't do anything that bad. What didn't pass on a message? *shrugs* Other characters have done worse. Serena was a total bitch (she got no sympathy from me) and N///S were boring, unsexy, and chemistry-less mess. She treated him like shit and then cheated on him with Dan. The "villanization" of Jenny and "sainthood" of Serena pretty much backfired IMHO. In the end, it didn't matter what Jenny did because Nate forgave her, told her he would always be there for her, and they ended the season as friends. It actually turned out way better than I originally pictured...but IDK anymore. I don't think the writers really care about doing them for real sadly. :(

Thanks for commenting. If you're even semi-NJ you should join nate_jenny.

This is gorgeous, you make wonderful points and it makes me sad that everyone can see all the Nate&Jenny potential but the writers of the show. The writers pretty much don't follow anything from the books anymore so I'm hoping that Nate&Jenny get another go this season, or just gets something other than a 'they have a lot of sexual tension and pretty much can't keep away from each other but we don't think we should be a couple' plot line again.

Anyhow, great job =-)
Susan: {ggr} nate and jenny: first kissburstoflight on July 4th, 2010 04:55 am (UTC)
Thank you! And I agree. The writers fail. They just screw everything up for ~drama. They get off on it. The finale makes me sick and it just pains me to think that JS/SS love how upset everyone is. BLAHHH. IDK if NJ will ever be together, but I'll always love them because they ARE epic.
