#let’s play guess the endgame one more time 

Okay you know what I was just gonna reblog this and say nothing but you know what, I’m pissed off and you wanna know why?

Ted is a Nice Guy. I don’t mean a nice man, no. I mean the motherfucking “Nice Guy” who moans and complains about how women just won’t flock to him and be exactly who he expects of them. He knew from the beginning Robin wanted to focus on her career before marriage. He knew from the beginning she didn’t want kids. She rejected him time after time before they dated the first time. She rejected him time after time after that, for nine goddamn fucking years. His refusal to stop pursuing her, and accept she did not fucking love her, destroyed his relationship with Victoria TWICE. He is the whiny high school teenager bitching because the popular girl he obsesses over just isn’t into him. He is the goddamn Nice Guy, the kind whose every action, every so-called kind deed is done purely out of trying to get Robin to date him.

Robin motherfucking Scherbatsky was an independent woman who not only relied on herself, but expected the men she wanted to be with to be independent and rely on himself, as well. She was career-minded and strong and independent and self-reliant. Those were the traits that doomed her and Ted.

In this gifset we see that Ted did not respect Robin for who she was. He didn’t want her to be self-reliant—he wanted her to rely on him. He’s like so many men out there, so many Nice Guys. Baby, let me take care of you while you put me before everything else, You’re too independent, Robin. I need you to need me, I need you to rely on me. The reason they didn’t work out was because they both wanted and needed different things in relationships, and that’s okay—what isn’t okay is that instead of accepting that, Ted blames her. Tells her that SHE is the reason why they broke up, and something about her is WRONG. He insults her, tells her that her fundamental personality is wrong, and that she is why their relationship failed; that they they just aren’t compatible, no; because she is broken.

She is so upset at this she goes to another ex. He’s the Jerk, you know; the guy who all the Nice Guys in the world call The Asshole. And you know what? You know what this Asshole does? He comforts her, he compliments her. He tells her that those traits, teh traits she’s been belittled and taunted over, the traits that make her broken, the reason why She Can’t Find A Man, are what make her wonderful. Barney loved her for her insecurities, and he supported her independence. He supported her self-reliance. In one scene, this Asshole prove to be far more accepting and mature than the so-called Nice Guy.

So who do she end up with?

Ted.

I really don’t give a shit to reblog it again.

I have never seen something more true than this.

And once again the Nice Guy is rewarded for being “patient” and not giving up, ever - no matter how many times Robin rejected him, not even when she fell in love and married one of his supposed best friends, not even when he himself married the woman who had his children (almost as an afterthought).

And Robin is punished for her independence, for being infertile and - more importantly - for not wanting children, for putting her career before marriage, and - this is the main one - for not appreciating the “love” of the Nice Guy. She is punished by the narrative for not being in love with Ted, because as a woman she should be grateful for any male attention she receives, and she should want to get married and have 2.5 kids and not do a lot else with her life (like Lily, who, if you remember, wanted a hell of a lot more from her life than the finale gave her).

Robin loses her husband because of her career. She loses/leaves her friends in part because of the divorce, but mostly, it seems, because it hurts her to see Ted happy with Tracy. She succeeds phenomenally in her career as she has always desired, and yet she is miserable. Everyone else is busy having kids and being fulfilled (even Barney, her ex-husband who supposedly married her for her, not for any future kids she may give him) but Robin is left alone (“kids, one things your Aunt Robin never was… she was never alone”) and empty because she needs to be taught a lesson.

She needs to be taught that her life decisions and feelings were shit. She should have married Ted when she had the chance; she shouldn’t have put her feelings before his; she shouldn’t have focussed on her career. And once that lesson has been drummed into her, she is saved from her misery by Ted, the Nice Guy, her White Knight come to rescue her from her tower (fairly literally) - but only because he deserves to be rewarded for his patience and niceness. She should consider herself lucky she got a reprieve.

My last exam for this semester is on Friday, after that I’ll be free for almost six weeks (yay!) so I was thinking I’d start watching Supernatural.

Judging from the gifs I’ve seen on tumblr I’m probably gonna regret becoming emotionally invested in this show, won’t I (<— that’s a serious question, if this fucking show is certain to rip my heart out then FOR THE LOVE OF GOD SOMEONE TELL ME BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE)????
