Snow


It’s snowing outside. She doesn’t see Barney at first for all the falling snow, but then something takes shape – Barney in a light grey suit, wings spread to their full width and his hair shimmering with snowflakes.

When he comes closer, she realizes he’s wearing goggles. They look incredibly silly, but he wears them as though they’re the latest fashion.

He lands and she’s pretty sure it’s what an angel would look like, if angels wore suits and smirks.

He points to the goggles. “Prada.”

She snorts. “Dr. Horrible-lookalike.”

He looks surprised that she knows the reference.

They go inside.

Future


Lily sees herself pregnant, belly round and heavy, long before she gets pregnant. Still, when it happens, it’s not so much the vision that tells her they’re having a baby. She feels the shift – she feels her body change and prepare, everything perfectly natural.

She cooks him a really nice dinner and they have candles lit and everything; she wants it to be special. But she doesn’t need to tell him. He reads her so well; he knows without words. They’re quiet, somehow both sensing the change.

Finally, he says a single word. “Really?”

“Really.”

They smile.

He wraps his arms around her from behind, both large hands on her still flat stomach. She knows he already loves their unborn child just as much as she does, even though he’s only known about its existence for a minute. She can’t wait to see their child in his arms, she wants to see the love as he looks at the baby.

She often sees the future, but this time it’s not a vision but her dreams coming true. She sees them with their child and she sees a family of love and happiness.

She can’t wait for the future to happen.

Dogma


Barney came back, face scrunched up with horror.

“What happened?” asked Lily. “You look like you’re going to be sick.”

“I think I am,” Barney said. “She—she said—”

Robin cocked her head slightly to the side. “What did she say?”

Barney dropped down dramatically onto his chair. “She asked me if I’m like Alan Rickman in Dogma! She thought I had no equipment!”

The others burst out laughing.

“Oh, Barney,” Lily said between fits of giggles. “Poor baby.”

“It’s not funny!” Barney said. “It’s a tragedy! I’m the Barnacle, not a eunuch.”

The others just continued to laugh.

Summary: Cameron’s change will tear them apart.

Author's notes: Part of The Changed verse.

[ Master post: The Changed Verse ]

Torn apart


The scales appear first and she tries to scrub them off. She knows what they mean, has read enough about it in the papers and seen the pictures. She’s not stupid. But still, she tries to scrub them off, tries to stall for more time even though she knows it’s impossible.

Chase doesn’t realize at first. Allison uses clothes that cover up her body and considering how he’s been pulling away, it really isn’t hard to avoid having sex with him. They barely seem to exist in each other’s lives anymore.

But the bones in her legs start to weaken. She takes to sitting a lot, walking only when necessary. One morning, she can’t walk at all, when the bones in her legs seem to have evaporated. Suddenly, she can’t keep the secret anymore.

She cries when she tells him.

“God,” he breathes when he sees the green-tinted scales covering her legs. “Why didn’t you tell me?”

She doesn’t know. Did she think that he wouldn’t care? She can’t find the words to explain, but one look in his eyes and she sees that he understands anyway. He would have done the same thing.

They put their differences aside – his secrets, her suspicions, their fears – for a few hours and he holds her in his arms. They lie on their soft bed beneath the covers, simply holding each other. All the while, she can feel the Change coursing through her body, turning her legs into a fish tail instead. In a week, maybe two, the Change will be complete and she’ll have to go live in the ocean.

They have been drifting apart and they both see the end even though they both pretend they don’t. They’re being torn apart, Change or no Change.

Perhaps this is for the best.

I love Snow and Dogma. Your characterisation is impeccable.

I feel evil for the fact that I kind of want Lily to see something horrible in the future and not want to tell everyone. I'm just sick aren't I?

And OH CAMERON! Of course she's a mermaid. It makes SO much sense. And it'll mean she can't stupidly dye her hair anymore. ;-)

I wonder what Change happens to House?
cosmic: HIMYM: OT3 Marshall/Lily/Barneybananacosmic on February 14th, 2010 12:53 pm (UTC)
Thank you :)

I have some thoughts about Lily seeing bad stuff, actually. Just haven't figured out how to execute it. Everyone seems to want me to go to dark places with this - one of my friends suggested someone get kidnapped for their abilities ^^

Anyway, suggestions and ideas are always welcome ;)

As soon as I thought of House, I decided that she's be a mermaid. Works with canon as well, in a way :) Re: hair: *g* (although I seem to recall the actress saying that she's a natural blonde)

I haven't decided on House or Wilson, but I haven't been as into House lately...
idioticonionidioticonion on February 14th, 2010 06:04 pm (UTC)
I'd actually like to see Lily kidnapped for her ability!

although Ted's walk-through-wall-ness might be quite valuable? Then you could do a bit of Barney/Ted OTP for Barney rescuing him. Mmmm.

What's Marshall's power again?
cosmic: HIMYM: Barney the naked manbananacosmic on February 14th, 2010 06:45 pm (UTC)
I like the kidnapped!Ted idea, it was where my brain was heading :D I especially like the Barney/Ted part. I love Barney/Ted ^^ There's way too little Barney/Ted out there (friendship or slash).

I haven't told you yet ;)
idioticonionidioticonion on February 14th, 2010 07:45 pm (UTC)
DO IT! You've got me all excited now.

At first I thought Cameron was turning into a turtle or something... but she's really just a mermaid :)

And AWE!!! The first three were fantastic. I love all this weirdness!
cosmic: HIMYM: Barney smilebananacosmic on February 16th, 2010 02:49 pm (UTC)
*g* Turtle!Mermaid. Nah, she's a pretty mermaid. It seemed so natural when it popped into my head ^^

Thank you *hugs* I'm enjoying writing the weirdness :)
Butterflysnogged on February 16th, 2010 01:28 pm (UTC)
These worked out quite well.

Adored the Dogma reference. I &hearts Alan Rickman.

Thank you :)

Who doesn't? He's brilliant!

GOGGLES!

Oh man, if they made prada goggles I'd so cry (I have a goggle collection that's near and dear to my heart).
Yay Barney has goggles now! It's changed!verse canon! lololol

Aww... a LAME baby on the way :) It's so sweet to see the both of them, despite all that's happening, still being the sugary sweet family that they always will be.

And now House is thrown in here too, makes me want to finish that House wing!verse I planned forever ago.
cosmic: HIMYM: Barney the naked manbananacosmic on February 16th, 2010 05:08 pm (UTC)
*g* I thought you'd read this already and then wrote your fic - if not, then SHARED BRAIN ;D So yeah, definitely changed!verse canon.

Well, the fic I'm writing now isn't nearly so sugary sweet ^^

Ooooh, House wing!verse? Needs to be finished, now!
bishojo_kitsune: haibane renmeibishojo_kitsune on February 16th, 2010 11:26 pm (UTC)
I really gave wing!verse some serious thought heh...
Dear nursing degree, please stop eating all my time, love the mangement lol

*gasp* Changed!verse angst for the HIMYM group? YES PLZ.
(It was awesome to see in the Chameron fic the negative effects of the changed!verse)

I'll let you in on a secret, I did write 'Snow Day' first, but before I ended it I went to check for any Changed!verse canon to make sure I wasn't screwing with anything, although the goggle thing was originally there. WE'RE BRAIN BUDDIES XD

I still wonder what Marshall's power would be, maybe he can talk to animals and read the thoughts of inanimate objects, or, keeping in theme with his conspiracy brain, maybe he's able to sense and identify what abilities people have...or something. Poor Marshall, he must be just waiting for his power to manifest lol

cosmic: HIMYM: Ted&Barney brothersbananacosmic on February 17th, 2010 08:37 pm (UTC)
That really is some serious thought :) I can't get to the second one, but you have it all figured out. It is a very different idea from anything I've seen, that's for sure. I like it ^^

Yupyup, angst is coming their way. I like writing angst, but at the moment I've been feeling kinda blue and the result has been me writing lovey-dovey fics as a fix for my own lack of things lovey-dovey. But angst is fun. The fic is turning out longer than any of the others too (currently at 4000 words and I'm sure at least 2000 words away from done).

I'm pretty sure what I want Marshall's power to be, but I've yet to use it in a fic (other than in passing, in a fic I haven't posted). I changed Ted's a bit at the last minute (I had him as able to make himself invisible to start with but something about an architect walking through walls really spoke to me) :)
bishojo_kitsune: windbishojo_kitsune on February 18th, 2010 05:56 pm (UTC)
That's exactly what I thought when I read what Ted's Change was.

So would you say that the Change is random or could it have been predestined in a way that it responds to one's personality or traits or something?

(Or maybe I should stop thinking too much lol)
cosmic: HIMYM: NPH sharpbananacosmic on February 18th, 2010 09:06 pm (UTC)
You know, at first I was thinking that it was random, but then I figured it's really not. It has to fit the character for me to be able to see a specific Change. However, I don't want to go the most obvious way (for example, Gibbs of NCIS he has his gut in canon but I didn't want him to be a pre-cog). I don't know, it has to feel right for me.

Meeeh, stuck on the angsty story. Gotta figure out how to get the characters from point A to point B. The problem with writing stuff with actual plot... ^^
