1. I spent two additional days collecting rage posts on Tumblr about HIMYM, but ultimately sunnytyler001 rustled up this edited ending (or: the 1-scene version) and it's so perfect and pretty that I ain't even mad at all anymore. The finale is just that easy to shrug off. I am also pleased to report that as far as I can tell, it isn't affecting my feelings about the series as a whole. Once in a while there will be be a flicker of discomfort, but it strikes me as the remnants of a bad dream. Or a shadow vibe from The Darkest Timeline. Unfortunately, this means I can't respond to your comments about it -- but man, they were so great.
