Author's Note: I feel like this isn't very good... But there'll probably be more and hopefully it will get better. Anyway... The basic premise is that Dr. Horrible is the fifth doppleganger. Let me know what you think. Also, this will be posted on multiple spots. It will also appear in the NPH spot and the Barney Stinson spot.
Ted, Robin, Marshall and Lily were sitting watching a football game in Ted’s apartment. It was an uneventful Saturday afternoon when suddenly Barney rushed into the apartment.
“GUYS!” He cried, slamming the door behind him.
“No, Barney…” Ted groaned. “Whatever crazy thing you want to do… just no.”
“There’s no crazy thing!” Barney said. “I was on the internet last night--”
Lily grimaced. “Barney… you on the internet? Do we want to hear the way this story ends?” She asked.
Barney scowled at her. “Lily! I don’t watch porn on the internet!” He said, outraged. Ted and
“I don’t!” Barney continued. “I have a whole blu-ray library for that! What up!”
“Nice…” Marshall mouthed.
Lily rolled her eyes. “Just finish the story…”
Barney grinned. “Anyway! I was on the internet and I found… wait for it… THE FIFTH DOPPLEGANGER! React.”
The group gasped and they all looked at Barney with legitimate interest.
“Oh my God! Did you really?” Robin said, eyes wide.
“Yes I did. Ted, get your laptop.” Barney said, content in this epic discovery.
Ted jumped up and handed over his computer to Barney who put it on the dining table. “Gather around, folks… because this is about to blow your mind!” He typed in a URL fast and it took them to the video blog of somebody named Dr. Horrible.
“Holy crap!” Ted said. “He looks just like you!”
“What’s with the weird goggles?” Marshall asked.
“He’s a super villian- an evil genius!” Barney said, proud of his doppleganger's awesome occupation.
“Wait a minute…” Robin said. “How do we know this isn’t you? I mean… you guys are literally identical.”
“Hey… yeah!” Lily said, glaring at Barney. “We saw the other dopplegangers live in person… seeing your ‘doppleganger’ in a video on the internet proves nothing.”
All at once, a familiar gleam of resolve twinkled in Barney’s eyes. The group sighed, knowing what was coming next.
“CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!” Barney said, standing up. “From this moment on, I will not rest until I have located this Dr. Horrible and bring him here in the flesh! STINSON OUT!”
