Anonymous asked : remember that perfect closing scene of 7.17 where ted """closes the door""" on robin and how great an ending that was and sorry. i need somewhere to put my feelings.
You know, if I gathered anything from the rewatch I did of the entire series over the last month, it’s that Ted never got over Robin.
And that’s fine.
That’s sad for Ted, and frankly, it’s extremely sad for the Mother (I can’t seem to start calling her Tracy!! Even though the scene with them and the same initials is literally one of the cutest things i’ve ever seen and one of my fav things about the finale) because I want her to be the one. They could have been and hopefully were perfect together, but what the hell do we know about it? Not much, that’s for sure.
But there have been SO many episodes at this point where Ted supposedly got his closure on Robin that at this point, that part of the plot, just feels…completely fucked.
Anonymous asked : i am convinced that the writers of himym wrote this finale back during season 1 or 2 and didn't feel like changing it and in my head the series ended at last weeks episode
Oh, I’m fully convinced of that.
And I get it. I do.
Ted/Robin and more specifically, Ted stealing that blue french horn for Robin is a full circle ending. I appreciate that as a writer. I really do. One of my favorite things, tbh.
That being said?
The thing with HIMYM is that it’s become a completely different show since it started, and I’ve been borderline in denial of that for a long time, but it has. Probably somewhere between seasons five and six.
And they’ve been trying to keep it the same show, but it never really was. Not really. Ted and Robin aren’t the same people they were during season two, which is more than anything else why I disagree with how it all ended.
I do get it. I do really do.
But the show evolved, and they’ve had this idea in their head for an ending since basically day one, but, in my head, it doesn’t fit anymore. Not really. And it was a very real disservice to the Barney/Robin fans (a community they have known and loved since season three).
I get it.
I want to clarify that,
I get it.
Barney is the cliche single guy who loves the ladies and can’t settle down, and single Barney is the Barney everyone fell in love with. I get that. I always will. I understood why they first broke up because of their issues, and I get it now.
Neither of them are good at commitment.
I fully understand that.
But at some point, I do believe that Carter and Craig fell for Barney/Robin as a ship.
And I wish that they had not stuck to the original plan.
I get it.
But doing this to us? So many Barney/Robin shippers?
I’ll always love the show, and it will not stop meaning the world to me.
Anonymous asked : Hi! You were one of the first HIMYM blogs I followed back when first watched the show in 2011. We never talked but I always looked forward to your gifs, and as a huge Barney/Robin shipper, looked forward to you freaking out over Barney and Robin moments and just anything with the show. Gosh, does this sound creepy? haha. You are probably as upset as the rest of us, and I just want to give you a big virtual hug. I know how big of a fan you were. I'm so sad over how terrible things ended :(
Thank you so much.
Tbh I’ve had so much alcohol tonight idek
i may have ranted to a stranger about it a lot
his roommate watched
Anonymous asked : hi i'd like to ask if we can still send messages?
Go for it, I’m not going to do the final update for another few hours. :)
Anonymous asked : Do you have a streaming website where I can watch the final episode live?
I can’t guarantee that it will be functional at the time of the episode, I don’t use livestreams very often, but here’s one for CBS that will hopefully work.
Anonymous asked : I attributed lily's drinking to one of two things (or potentially both): 1) it would be suspicious if she didn't drink at all and could tip people off to the fact that she's pregnant, so drinking constantly all weekend made sure no one even thought of that. 2) sometimes having something in your hands/something to do or focus on can lessen your stress and anxiety because it takes your mind off of whatever your problem is.
Yep, that’s actually what I was just thinking. At least the first one, though really I get #2, as well.
Anonymous asked : Do you have any predictions on the finale? What do you really want to see? :) (personally I'd love to see Robin telling Barney about her freakout but realizing she really wants to be with him)
I honestly don’t know anymore! I’m going into this finale somewhat expectation free. I’ve been theorizing about it for years, and so many of my theories have already been proven correct - that the mother is the bass player in the wedding, that the final slap would occur in Barney’s final panic before the wedding, that there would be Ted/Robin drama on the wedding day. Most of my theories? Already panned out. I don’t know what to expect from tomorrow.
I’m holding onto hope that the Vesuvius theory is right (and I can’t find a link to that right now, dammit, does someone have a link to that post I can add for people who don’t know what I’m talking about, by chance?) because I will cry very hard at any character death.
But honestly, I just don’t know.
I think part of me is trying to go in without too many expectations so that I won’t be disappointed if it’s something completely different from what I thought.
Anonymous asked : so for the himym finale project thing we just send our message in an email to that address?
Yep! That simple.
Anonymous asked : I have a theory for HIMYM, Barney is dead. Agree or disgree?
I have a theory that Barney Stinson is immortal.
