End of the day here, and eeendje reminded me what day it is, so thought I'd pop in and blabber. 2017 may not be the happiest year for Barney and Robin (first year post-divorce in finale-world, for those who recognize it) but a good year for Barney's lungs (his last cigarette ever, for real this time.) For the fandom? Good question. There's been talk of the powers that be, being open to a revival, though the cast is doing rather well in their current projects, but that does speak to how, when the show was good, it was very, very good, and, for me, B/R was a huge part of that.
Three years after the show went off the air (four years in the lives of the characters) and, while yes, we have become smaller in number, I'm still glad to have our own gang here in this comm. If the show can spend a whole year on Barney and Robin's wedding, we can spend a weekend talking about them.
To steal from Inside the Actor's Studio, if you could have designed any future you wanted for Barney and Robin, where would Barney and Robin be right now? What are they doing on their anniversary this year? I'm still not sure if it was a good idea to watch the trailer for Cobie's new show, Friends From College immediately after watching the Love Actually mini-sequel, but...hm, wait, idea forming...it put me in a "where are they now" mood. It's much easier for me to imagine Barney and Robin still being together, than divorced and without contact (or caring) and I wish we'd been able to see that. I wouldn't mind dropping in, a few years down the line, to see how they're doing, still together, still happy, definitely not "settled down" in the traditional sense; they'd still be them, and I love that.
B/R remains one of my top ships, because they're not perfect. They're messed up and weird and kind of crazy sometimes, and, in my mind, they're going to keep on being that way, no matter how much time has passed. Will they have problems? Yes. Fights? Yes. Come back to each other? Also yes. That's how they roll, so happy anniversary, B/R, and here's to many more.
Almost three years ago,the Failnale went on air,and it changed our look at HIMYM forever. To "celebrate" this date,i thought to open a topic to talk about it. Here's a few questions to start the topic (but the conversation is free,of course):
-Has your feelings on the finale changed? Are you still angry? Or you don't care anymore?
-Was season 9 a good season overall,or was it completely pointless?
-Who is currently having the better career after the ending? And why are Neil and Cobie? :D
-Will you give another chance to Bays and Thomas with their new series,to see if they learnt from their mistakes,or are they "dead to you"?
-Do you think we will see a reunion someday,or it will never happen?
Like always,i apologize for the bad english :D But let's talk!
I was just on youtube and spotted this video of Cobie Smulders being in Noel Coward's Present Laughter on Broadway next month.
I can't make it obviously as I'm overseas but it sounds good just the same
