Seth Cohen and Blair Waldorf have started dating, this according to Us Weekly. What's that you say? Seth and Blair are fictional characters and only the actors who played them, Adam Brody and Leighton Meester, are holding hands and making plans? Shut up with that noise! This is the moment many (me) have dreamed of: a cross-over romance between "The O.C." and "Gossip Girl" that could connect the two shows forever in fanfic paradise. (If only "Gossip Girl" were still on the air, then Seth could show up and be awesome and quirky and talk about buying tickets to the Postal Service reunion show at Barclays Center.)
To celebrate this budding new coupling, here are 15 other relationships that probably exist in the universe where Seth and Blair date ...
1. Taylor Townsend and Georgina Sparks are frenemies currently plotting against some Russian diplomat.
