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.

"Kids, there are two big days in any love story, the day you meet the girl of your dreams; and the day you marry her."
Have you ever felt this way about someone?Yeah, I think so. If you have to think about it, you have not felt it.
The Final Page commentary
Craig Thomas: Future you could not have been clearer in the pilot. People still ask us! People still say ‘is Robin the mother?’
Like, what a bunch of dicks we’d be, if we completely subverted… that was in the pilot, that was one of the last lines in the pilot.
People want the sweetness and security of Marshall & Lily, the badassness and freedom of Barney & Robin, and the epic love story that makes you believe that there is someone out there for you of Ted & the mother.
