Anonymous asked: first even if you say she's not a possession, pu property on Robin is so wrong! Any human is property to anyone, and no Robin is not HIS for Barney or Ted, I don't care! And since when Barney’s heart has always belong to Robin since they met? sinc ethey met? Are you kidding me??? Hate when shippers are so blind to not see or invent some things! Buy yes Robin's heart belongs to barney since a moment now (first love : Ted, big love : Barney)
Thank you for your opinion.
You have your opinion, I have mine.
I actually do think that in a way Barney fell for Robin the moment he met her in that bar all those years ago. But if you wish to hear what I think is the defining moment - when he really knew, then in my opinion that’s the moment when he rips the list of the 200 women at the end of season 4 and looks at Robin, who then smiles back at him.
You may not know this, but English is not my main language, so sometimes I find it hard to find a really good way to say what I mean. (and no, sometimes google and dictionaries don’t help - they translate words, not ideas) You could have given me advice what word/words to use instead of “property”. But instead you chose not to do that. So I cannot find your message helpful sadly.
Once more… with “property” I mean that her heart belongs to Barney. Barney has a hold on her heart, and that makes every other mans attempt to win it futile. So what if that word is not the correct one or politically correct to express the idea, I chose to use it. But in a way it can be said that “she belongs to him” as in ” her heart belongs to him” (which doesn’t mean that he owns her heart literally…having it in his apartment stuck in some glass jar. No. It’s more figurative.
Also…since you actually did understand my point (Ted - her first love when thinking of those two, and Barney - her big and final love), I don’t think I didn’t get my message through using the words I did. Because it seems like I did.
I am not saying I’m right, but I though I was being funny and amusing. If I over-did it, my bad. But that’s just what my sense of humour is like. I can do nothing about the fact that you don’t get the humour. Not everyone finds the same things funny, and appreciates the same type of jokes.
But thank you for your message anyway. Your opinion is noted.
Now let’s all go back and watch the show for the reasons we want to watch it.
btw, doesn’t the URL (thetieisrobin) give you some clue as to what this blog is about? A Barney and Robin shipping blog. Of course you’ll find shipper stuff in here! Why would you expect anything different from a blog that is clearly about one particular ship? Now that’s what I don’t understand.
Also.. even though it is not legal in most places, and is frowned upon in western culture, there are places on Earth, where one person is basically the property of another. And usually it’s women (wife) being the property of men (husband). Yes, cultures still exist that view a woman as the humble servant of the man. Also..in many ways child labour and low-paid workers in third-world countries could be viewed as the possessions of their employers. It sometimes is very close to that. So the statement that no human being is a possession to another, is kind of incorrect. Even though it should be correct. Things like that should not happen. Should not exist in the world. But sadly they do.
That is all I wanted to say.
oh, one more thing - if you celebrate any holidays (Christmas, Hannukah…), I wish you’ll have HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
