When one’s in love with an ageless god who insists on the face of a twelve-year-old, one does one’s best to hide the damage.
That line always bothered me, like a lot.
When has the Doctor ever insisted on the face of a twelve-year-old? When has he ever said that? Like, i get that he doesn’t age, and she doesn’t want her age to show, but he’s never INSISTED on her being 12 years old, or ageless, or anything! :-/
Also, since when can the Doctor just use regeneration energy at will??
…and I’m dead.
god i am going to punch you in the face for tags like that cate
#Do you think when Ten was standing here looking at her #Part of his enormous Time Lord brain was cataloguing #All the things he would be willing to give up #To trade places with his metacrisis self? (gallifreyburning)
#The rest of his enormous Time Lord brain is cataloguing#her smile #her eyes #the way she turns from and to and from him again like she’s already in love #every tiny movement she makes and every breath #every sound she makes #when her voice catches and when it gives #and the sound of her footsteps walking away from him and toward him all at once. #Because this is his last chance to see her. #Ever. #And even if he were to see her again #it wouldn’t be the same #not in a new body #not with a new him. #so he catalogues every bit of her he can see or hear or feel or sense. #Because she’s the reason he was made the way he was and lived the life he did. #She’s the reason he loved so hard and lost so much. #He doesn’t want to go - he doesn’t want to lose the part of him that is HER.

Day 4- Favourite episode from season 1 > The Parting of the Ways
The man who died for love
When I get bored strange and pointless things happen.
#every acting award ever #i know a lot of people criticise ten for being whiny and difficult and bratty in this scene #i feel that those who do have pretty much completely missed the entire arc of ten’s character development #of all the new!who doctors he is the most painfully perfectly HUMAN incarnation #nine is the battle-weary scarred alien destroyer of civilisations. #eleven is a dorky alien dude with a penchant for hats and a dark streak the size of an oncoming storm. #not that ten doesn’t have his alien or oncoming storm aspects. he does. but predominantly he is HUMAN. #he was born from sacrificing himself as nine to save rose. he was born BECAUSE of her.#throughout his entire story arc ten delights in humanity. so many times he WANTS to be human. to take that slow path with rose. #at one point he even IS human in the family of blood storyline. #and he is TERRIFIED - as we all would be - of disappearing. of course as a timelord he doesn’t die. #but HE - as ten. as the man who loved rose and martha and donna. - HE won’t exist anymore #of course he rails against it like any human would. he wants to cling on to life. the life he knows. his identity. his humanity. #and this is his reward? oh baby. #so he rants and raves and is sadly startlingly painfully human. and then that last gif. #he pulls himself back. he KNOWS he’s being whiny. he knows that in the bigger scheme of things he still lives.#so he gets on with it. he was born for rose and now he dies for wilf. #he dies for wilf and he dies for DONNA. he’s giving her her granddad back. #and this is why i love ten. always and forever.(via virginiachance)
