So thecatalanlass tagged me and it made me happy because she’s a top lady and I really like her♥ So I’m gonna answer DA QUESTIONS (u guys know how it works rite?):
1. Top five Tv shows.
Friends, Parks and Recreation, Doctor Who, Grey’s Anatomy (yeah, I know), Freaks and Geeks.
2. What are some things that make you really happy?
Ice creams, big cities in good weather, travelling, chocolate, and concerts.
3. What’s the first thing you notice about people?
Wether they smile a lot or not (and so, if I feel comfortable around them).
4. What’s the stupidest thing you’ve ever done?
Wow, there are a lot of things I’ve done that are incredibly stupid. I really can’t think of one now (other than the ones that are too embarrassing to make public)
5. What’s something most people don’t know about you?
That I like coffee better than tea (but I drink a lot more tea so everybody thinks I prefer tea idk)
6. Which animals scare you most? Why?
Hmmmmm. Animals don’t usually scare me, really. Maybe some venomous insect or something? Insects scare me a bit more than bigger animals because they can get inside my clothes, but other than that, no idea.
7. Favourite season? Why?
Autumn! Because cold is coming right at the moment when I get tired of the heat. Also I love chestnuts and sweet potatoes and needing a sweater or jumper but not really a jacket.
8. Favourite Musical? Why? When did you discover it?
Mar i cel, without a doubt. And I don’t know, my mum used to listen to the CDs and I saw it live on my 14th (I think) birthday and I cried during the play and then all the way home.
9. Do you believe there is life out there?
Of course… The universe is too big for us to be alone.
10. What are your future expectations?
Getting out of this country, getting a good job, getting a life, yay!
11. If you had been born anywhere else except your country of origin, where would it be?
Switzerland or northern England.
I was thinking of maybe just replying and not tagging anyone else but as these questions are very interesting I think I will tag people to answer them (instead of thinking of new ones because I’m a lazy butt)
In addition there you have eleven top quality blogs if you wonder who to follow today!
in his best man speech ted (finally) called barney his best friend, b/c you can have two best friends seriously, it’s very emotional
the gang don’t know when they’ll get to hang out again so there’s lots of hugging and shit and they spout one liners about the importance of friendship and i cry a lot
ted goes over to the girl with the yellow umbrella and the bass and that scene was mostly okay so it can stay EXCEPT
the mother’s name should Matter right b/c why keep it a secret so long if it wouldn’t sooo her name is leia, like princess leia, and it’s a beautiful counterpoint to ted/stella and it makes sense they called their son luke but didn’t go the whole hog and call the girl leia if that’s the mother’s name — ted says “i’m ted” and she says “i’m…..leia [winces a little]. like the princess, i know.” and ted falls in love on the spot (shout out to kingslayerjaime i am accepting this as canon)
barney and robin are in love forever and ever and they’d do anything for each other and yeah it’s hard w/ robin travelling all the time but they make it work, b/c home is wherever they’re together, and wherever the gang’s together
although maybe they do settle down a bit eventually, but they absolutely refuse to live in the suburbs (ted and leia try to do a whole bit where they make the suburbs sound Super Cool but they’re both such giant nerds it has the opposite effect)
lily definitely doesn’t have three kids, whoa, it’s hard enough juggling two kids w/ her emerging art career — she curates at an art gallery when they come back from rome, it’s pretty sweet, and eventually her own paintings start to sell
marshall’s life is pretty sweet idk he doesn’t like corporate law but eventually he becomes a judge and stuff yeah marshall u can stay
leia teaches ted what it really means to Love someone, and he realises that he was never really in love with robin, not how robin and barney were in love, but he loves leia with everything in him but in a healthy and happy way and she has to let go of max, too, and ted isn’t max but she’s starting to believe that maybe there is more than one person out there for everybody, and that maybe it;s okay to be happy — maybe she’s meant to be happy
leia does die b/c there were a lot of hints leading to that and it’s super sad but ted is by her side all through treatment and he can’t deal with it at all, can’t accept that he’s spent so long waiting for her only for her to be taken from him, and leia tells him about max, the other love of her life, and ted learns that even though it hurts so so much he’s so lucky to have had leia at all, his soulmate, his other half, the girl who gets his stupid fucking jokes and drives out of her way to go to roadside attractions, and sometimes it’s hard b/c it’s hard to grow old together but they grow //together// and she sings him la vie en rose and he cries
and when she’s dying leia takes ted’s hand and says “tell them how you met me. the long version. how robin and barney fell in love, b/c that’s where it really starts, right? tell them about my umbrella and about all the crazy stuff barney did. about marshall and lily growing up. tell them about the gang and how i somehow managed to needle my way in.” and ted starts crying (omg ted stop crying) and says, “you didn’t needle your way in, you were always part of the gang, we were just waiting for you. i was waiting for you.”
and ted sits penny and luke down and says “kids, this is the story of how i met your mother.”
and at the end luke and penny look at each other and luke says “what was that about the pineapple?” and ted says they never found out where it came from and penny says “weird, mom told us a story about a pineapple once —” (b/c you know leia is just as much of a storyteller as ted is)
FLASHBACK THE NIGHT OF THE PINEAPPLE INCIDENT
the mother was there
she was the one that gave him the pineapple
and that kids, is the story of how i met your mother
