Rose Tyler + empathy and compassion
#do you guys ever wonder if the doctor told rory the story about him and rose #he told him that story because he didn’t want rory to be jealous of amy and himself #so one day while amy was out getting breakfast for them the doctor sat rory down in the control room #and took his jacket off and just looked up at the console room #and started off with ‘You know rory you haven’t any need to be worried about Amy and Me’ #and slowly he told rory the story of rose and himself #and how he’d never quite recover from that shop girl from london without her grade a’s #he tells rory of each time he had to leave her and how strongly his love grew each time she was back #and how each time he was certain that he would tell her that he loved her because he was sure he really would #but he didn’t #and said ‘thats why I am able to love amy so much and tell her because she’s the first face this face seen and she’s seared into my hearts… #but for me she isn’t rose #she’s the best friend and sister that i had never gotten to have after the rest left #she is your Rose #she isn’t mine rory you neednt worry about our friendship #I would never take someones Rose away from them’ and he would do whatever he could to keep the two from ever separating #which is why in the asylum he worked so hard to bring them together because even amy knew that he would try #And then rory remembered this story long before the asylum and how it went about #how he turned to the doctor and said #”This isnt fair. Youre turning me into you” #And thats all it took for the Doctor to realize that yes #he really was #and it wasnt fair in the slightest #I HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS OKAY #RORY FEELINGS
This song is ending. But the story never ends
You brought colours into my life.
rebloggin this every time
doctor who meme→ one/two quotes: “If I believe in one thing… Just one thing… I believe in her.”
I always loved this bit. 9’s trying to help her impress Adam Mitchell, even though Adam ends up being stupid and troublesome. 9 is so subtly proud of her, playing a little trick, showing how clever she is. Because HE knows how clever she is, even if Adam doesn’t and needs a bit of convincing through a little deception.
I really wish this would happen
A male presenter came up and started talking about how virginity was a beautiful gift and should be treasured. He showed a rose to the class and asked who wanted the flower. Everyone raised their hands. He plucked a petal off and asked how many people would still want the flower. Most people raised their hands. He asked someone to pull a petal off and repeated the question. This continued until the flower was bare. He said “Don’t you see that the flower isn’t as valuable because it’s been touched by so many people? How many of you would still want the flower?”
One guy raised his hand up and shouted out:
“I would. It doesn’t matter who touched the flower before I did. If you think that, you are a moron. And your metaphor is sexist.”
To this day, I don’t know who that guy was, but he’s still my hero.
I like this story. I like it a lot.
And remember: you are a human being, not a flower or a piece of tape or any of the bullshit they use for these demonstrations. Being touched by other people doesn’t make you worthless. Having sex doesn’t make you unworthy of love. Being a virgin is not your lone function in this world. There is nothing, NOTHING wrong with abstinence or celibacy, but you shouldn’t be shamed into doing it.
“Because it goes so fast. I’m not running away from things, I’m running to them. Before they flare and fade forever.
And it’s all right.”
“It broke me up, their performance. The reality of the way they played that sequence was absolutely extraordinary. You can see they almost look at each other but they’re only looking at empty spaces and it seems extraordinary but I think they played that absolutely truthfully. It’s a brilliant piece of work.” - Graeme Harper (Episode Director)
Immediately after reading this, what do I do? Open up iTunes and start playing Murray Gold’s brilliant “Doomsday”. FEEEEEEEEEELS!!!
#So do you suppose they beam at each other this enthusiastically#every single time one of them walks into a room #any mundane room at all #When Rose walks into the TARDIS kitchen for breakfast #and the Doctor is already sitting on top of the refrigerator drinking his morning tea and tinkering with something #he stops what he’s doing and turns the full force of his attention on her #and beams brighter than the sun#Or when they’re cuddling on the couch and watching alien soap operas #and the Doctor remembers he left his sonic in his other trousers and put them in the washing machine#and he dashes out to fetch it before it short circuits #and he comes back two mintues later and Rose is grinning ear-to-ear #just because he walked into the room #Is it some sort of reflex beyond their control #ingrained into their physiological makeup?
