I get it. I totally get it. The himym ending was realistic. Tracey was Ted’s soulmate. I think that people forget how much time was passing because it was all crammed into an hour. But Ted was with his soulmate for a long fucking time, they had kids and memories and a life together. But people can have more than one soulmate, and Robin and Ted always had this amazing relationship - the timing was just so off because Robin wanted to be independent and live her own life and Ted wanted to settle down and love someone deeply and show real commitment. All I think about is the episode where Robin found out that she couldn’t have kids and that heart-breaking scene where she explains that the two kids that she’s narrating the episode to aren’t real. And then I think of all the hints the creators dropped into the show about aunt Robin loving Ted’s kids and how much she is a part of their lives. I don’t think that the entire show was just an over-arching plot of how Robin and Ted got together. I think that it was about people. About how people lived their lives and how their lives progressed. I like how they made the characters actually move forward and not continue the sitcom routine of having crazy events happen every episode and then they end up drinking at the bar with everything back to normal at the end. It was real. And it was sad but it was raw and truthful about what actually happens in life. I was so devastated when Barney and Robin got divorced but I’m glad about the way it turned out. Because what Barney needed wasn’t a true love who he would always have insecurities over and would never feel completely grounded with. What he needed was an anchor who would always be a part of his life and be stable and who he could love unconditionally and be loved back in the same way. He needed a child. I totally see the flaws in how the show ended but at the same time I have to compliment Bays and Thomas for their huge effort and hard work they put into this series. Well done.
Fun fact I knew this girl from camp who had a British accent but she wasn’t from England and then one day I went to her house and her parents didn’t have a British accent either so I asked her where she got it from because I was really confused and she told me her parents faked it until she was 7 because they wanted a child with a British accent
