Barney/Robin quotes from Craig Thomas interview (Woohoo!!)  
dollsome posted snippets of a Craig Thomas interview with and OMYGOD!!! Any doubt I had that they would screw up Barney/Robin is gone ... though, to be honest, if you've read my thoughts on the last episodes of season three, you know that I had no doubts. And, AHA! I was right.

Craig Thomas: Maybe we're not milking it enough, as a lot of shows do very well. We're just diving into that in episode one. A-story, B-story, just picking up on Ted and Stella and Barney dealing with those feelings. Let's get right to it and give the audience what they want.

Me: To quote dollsome: YES!!! Seriously, tell the story in its organic form, don't delay and hold it back for ratings or a publicity ploy.

Question: You've been building to Barney and Robin since the Laser Tag episode in season one.

Thomas We have. It's been two years coming, we don't need to stretch it out any longer than that. Neil's so amazing with her, Cobie's so amazing with Neil. Lily's going to play into it a bunch, as the only one who can tell something's a little odd about Barney, something a little different than before the bus hit him. It's fun to see her recognize him.

Me: See, this is how I was hoping it would play out exactly. Yayers!!! (Yes, I just made that word up.)

Question:And the flipside of that is what Neil said at the New York Emmy event: how do you do this without making Robin look like an idiot for getting with a man she knows treats women so badly?

Thomas: The funny thing is, they were so sweet together in that Sandcastles episode where he put his arm around her and told her how awesome she is. You just buy it. There will never be a more perfect woman for Barney than Robin. I kind of just buy it, I don't feel like we have to prove it to the audience.

Me: OHMYGODDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All over the place!!!!!! Craig Thomas actually said that there will never be a more perfect woman for Barney than Robin. OH. MY. GOD!!!!!!!

YES!!! OFUCKINGTP!!!!!!!!!!

I am so ridiculously excited for S4 now. More excited than I was before, if that's possible. Now I'm totally convinced that they are endgame. It's like Craig Thomas is looking into my mind and seeing what I wanted to happen and then gave an interview based on that.
