Pairing: Robin Scherbatsky/Barney Stinson
Fic Title: metal heart
Special Rec: 21/31
Why This Must Be Read: Written before the PTB mishandled the Barney and Robin storyline on air, the_spin's story is a natural, in-character evolution of their relationship that is pitch-perfect in every aspect. This Barney and Robin are perfectly imperfect -- terrible at relationships, brilliant at their own non-relationship. metal heart is the story that should have happened.
