Lurking in the Shadows
innocently overlooks the truth

"I feel like a big faker because
I've been putting my life back together and nobody knows."

AU where Robin and Barney unexpectedly become parents. Robin’s worried this pregnancy will kill her future as a foreign correspondant, but hey! a woman’s allowed to have both a career and a family, so they take the kid with them and travel anyway. It’s not easy but Barney’s there to help (he’s writing the updated version of the Bro Code anyway, it became a great hit), and their daughter ends up speaking four languages by the time she’s five. They’d spent years worrying their respective fathers had messed them up too badly to make them good parents, but when their teenage daughter hugs them in 2030, thanking them for everything they’ve done for her, they finally understand they couldn’t have been more wrong.

HIMYM        The Mother       

“I will love you even if there is nothing left to love in fifty years. I will love you as you turn to dust, as you turn back into earth. There is nothing left of me but you, and even though that thought scares me, it lifts me above everything else. The years will come and go but I know now, as I knew back then, as I will continue to know, that I hold nothing inside of me but love for you. I can not stop this love or keep it away from me. I can not leave it behind me. I can only continue to keep it with me, and next to me always. I can only let myself turn more and more into dust as the days go by, and as the months turn into years. You are all I want. You are all I want to know. You will consume me and I will do nothing but feel grateful for every bitter beautiful moment of it.”
