AU where Robin and Barney unexpectedly become parents. Robin’s worried this pregnancy will kill her future as a foreign correspondent, 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.

I just feel so bad for the Barney x Robin shippers. They were teased THE ENTIRE SEASON that their OTP was GETTING MARRIED. The entire season was THE WEEKEND OF THEIR WEDDING. And then 10 minutes into the last episode they get DIVORCED. Barney ends up alone with a baby he had with some random while the love of his life ends up with HIS BEST FRIEND.
