Us with Nichelle Nichols at Fedcon
YAY! I’ve done it! I’ve rewritten The Very Hungry Caterpillar four times for the main characters of How I met your mother :D


This was such a fun challenge, mostly because the list I got immediately sparked this idea and I think it worked out pretty well! BIG thanks to oswin! As soon as I read ‘How I met your mother and ‘The very hungry caterpillar’ my mind went there and I knew what I had to do. I LOVE THAT BOOK!! Well, I work in a day care, so that book is sort of my bread and butter.

I hope the way I did the challenge is okay, I just couldn’t resist doing it. If it doesn’t fit the requirements, I’ll redo it.


The very horny Barney – 10 icons of Barney trying to score a perfect week
Inspirations: How I met your mother, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Kristen Stewart, dark, Jessie J, Orlando Bloom

On Monday, Barney met a girl who looked like Kristen Stewart, who normally only falls for sparkly vampires, but he still went out with her.

On Tuesday, Barney met a girl who looked like a dark, veiny Lily, who scared the crap out of him, but he still went out with her.

On Wednesday, Barney met a girl who looked like Jessie J, who was a bit too goth for him, but he still went out with her.

On Thursday, Barney met a girl who looked like Orlando Bloom in Lord of the Rings, but he still went out with her.

On Friday, Barney met a blonde girl, and he still went out with her.

And thus completes Barney’s perfect (workday) week. And on Saturday Barney met Robin and never strove for a perfect week again. ((yes, I’m a hopeless romantic, sue me!))


The very friendly Marshall and Lily – 8 gifs of Marshall and Lily trying to double date
Inspirations: How I met your mother, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Raindrop(s), The OC

The first week Lily and Marshall invite their neighbours over to dinner. They think it went great but their guests beg to differ…

The second week Lily and Marshall invite Kirsten and Sandy over for sharades. They think it went great, but their guests beg to differ…

The third week Lily and Marshall invite Robin and Barney over for game night. They think it went great, but their guests beg to differ…

But in the fourth week Robin and Barney started to regret blowing them off, so they reconciled with each other in the rain.



The very unlucky Robin – 6 picspams of Robin trying to be on a show somebody watched
Inspiration: How I met your mother, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, heroic (for Robin landing the helicopter), yellow

On her first job, Robin had to wait for the rescuers to get a little boy out of a vending machine, and nobody watched it.

On her second job, Robin fell into horsepoop, and nobody was supposed to watch it.

On her third job, Robin had to work with someone who regularly dropped his pants, and still nobody watched it.

On her fourth job, Robin worked with a giant fan and a chimpanzee, and still nobody watched it.

On her fifth job, Robin put out a fire, resuscitated the weatherman and delivered a baby and still nobody watched it.

On her sixth job, Robin had to land the traffic helicopter herself when the pilot had suffered a stroke. And finally, everybody watched it.



The very chatty Ted – 4 Wallpapers of Ted telling his kids how he did (not) meet their mom
Inspirations: How I met your mother, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, yellow, spring

Spring of 2005 Ted dated Victoria. She didn’t become the mother of his children, but he still told them about her. A lot.

Summer of 2006 Ted dated Robin. She didn’t become the mother of his children, but he still told them about her. A lot.

Fall of 2008 Ted dated Stella. She didn’t become the mother of his children, but he still told them about her. A lot.

Winter of 2010 Ted dated Zoey. She didn’t become the mother of his children, but he still told them about her. A lot.

And hopefully, Spring of 2013 Ted will finally tell them about their mother. Or not. We'll see.



Oh, and then they all became butterflies and flew into the light. :D

The End

Thanks! It's just such a sweet book! I'm sure you're familiar with it. ;)

Thoughts:

1.OHMYGOD at some of your colorings - especially picspams 3 and 4. Very fresh and summery and gorgeously vibrant! ♥ Oh and the soft contrast thing is so clear in both of these and works perfectly, you're really rocking it here!

2. I have no idea what that first challenge is about but it's hilarious and I love the scoring icons :D Great story there, (...except for the ending, says the antiromantic that is JS :D)
lmao at legolas being there and that Jessie J icon is goooorgeous.

Thanks! I'm glad you like picspams 3 and 4, I was afraid I've gone too soft on them. ;) Also, your tipp with ctrl+alt+shift+E made them a lot easier, so thanks for that!

Hehe, we'll get you around to the romantic thinking. LOL And it's all about definition, I think everything involving Scorpy is very romantic, so... :D

Yeah, I kinda had to include Legolas, glad you liked it. LOL

At first I was puzzled by how (and why) you told the story then I re-read the inspirations and saw 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' and I got it!

A very clever twist on the inspirations, well done!

:-D

Thanks! And lol, yeah, I thought about including my whole list so people wouldn't be confused, but I was just to lazy. So, good to hear that it's possible to figure it out. ;)

1. can i say first these are just beautiful! i love the gifs soo much and the wallpapers are stunning!

2. i was soo worried when i chose "the very hungry caterpillar" for my book but now i saw this i was very glad i did it. This is just so inspiring and amazing. Totally out of the box. :)

I'm so glad you got my list! This is just so amazing and funny. I can't explain in words how amazing this is!!

Thank you! Yeah, I guess there are people who don't know the very hungry caterpillar (are there? There really shouldn't be!), but your list went to exactly the right person, I really really LOVE it. It's one of my all time children's books.

So, yes, I'm glad that you chose it too, and even more glad that I got your list. And that you like what I've done with it. This was so much fun! :D
