HOW DID I NEVER CATCH THIS JOKE JESUS CHRIST NINE
Nine/Rose + Love
As requested by ms-notebook.
I just needed to reblog this again.
Because jfc, you don’t understand how important this scene is to me.
Or maybe you do!
Because it has Jack openly showing his affection and admiration for two people of different gender in the exact same way, making no difference at all, and neither do Rose nor the Doctor. Zilch. No hesitating, no flinching, no comic relief.
I wish it could be like this more often.
That scene up there is doing everything right, end of story. And while Jack’s sexuality is often made out to be something to smile at, it’s also shown as very natural and Nine was just cool with that, no reason not to be.
Sassy Nine is having none of your shit
Sassy Nine is the best.
This is Emergency Programme One. Rose, now listen, this is important. If this message is activated, then it can only mean one thing.
We must be in danger. And I mean fatal. I’m dead or about to die any second with no chance of escape. And that’s okay. Hope it’s a good death. But I promised to look after you, and that’s what I’m doing. The TARDIS is taking you home. And I bet you’re fussing and moaning now - typical. But hold on and just listen a bit more. The TARDIS can never return for me. Emergency Programme One means I’m facing an enemy that should never get their hands on this machine. So this is what you should do: let the TARDIS die. Just let this old box gather dust. No one can open it; no one will even notice it. Let it become a strange little thing standing on a street corner. And over the years, the world will move on and the box will be buried. And if you want to remember me, then you can do one thing. That’s all. One thing.
(his head turns to face her, his eyes full of compassion - as if he knows she’s there. His voice sounds less distorted—)
Have a good life. Do that for me, Rose. Have a fantastic life.
# Oh my Gallifrey # The Doctor’s face # He’s seen humans before and traveled with them for years on end # But the way he looks at Rose this early in their partnership is different # It’s the gaze of a man besotted # It’s the gaze of a man who’s done things he doesn’t believe he can ever be forgiven for and yet # This gorgeous woman standing in front of him gives him hope # She’s clever and brave and she’s here with him no matter how gruff he’s been or how he’s subtly tried to push her away (via gallifreyburning)
No Doctor will ever look at Rose like that. Ever. Nine was in complete awe of that woman, completely and totally in love. That look screams of reverence, mystification, admiration, adoration and love. He’s been turned into a lovesick teenager who writes songs on loose leaf while strumming his guitar. Inside his hearts are singing out to her, aching to be in her arms.
This was truly the Doctor who fell in love.
This was also the doctor that died for love
The only Doctor born from hatred and war
And redeemed through love
So much that the thing that he chose to die for
Was love itself.
Ten was born from love
And died half-mad.
Eleven was born half-mad
And we see where he is now.
But nine was born in fire
And love is what made him finally stop burning.
You know what they call me in the ancient legends on the Dalek home world? The Oncoming Storm. You might have removed all your emotions, but I reckon right down deep in your DNA there’s one little spark left. And that’s fear. Doesn’t it just burn when you face me?
The Doctor and Rose Tyler
- “From the moment they meet, the Doctor and Rose are soul mates. They understand and complement each other.” – Russell T Davies
- “What Rose brings to the Doctor’s life is completion. It’s completing a circle – he’s male, he’s alien, he’s a traveler. Between the two of them together they complement each other and discover each other. And are in love with each other – absolutely, unashamedly, unreservedly.” – Russell T Davies
- “It’s a love story…it’s like love at first sight, in a way.” – Christopher Eccleston
- “The Doctor is literally thrown into this bizarre new circumstance before he’s properly gotten himself together after saying farewell to Rose, who was the love of his life.” – David Tennant
- “I think Rose was unique in the sense that she loved him and he loved her back. And it was more than just a hint, it was deeply emotional.” – Freema Agyeman
- “The Doctor and Rose love each other. I think it’s that simple.” – Euros Lyn
- “She’s the one woman, the one human, that can make him better– that can make him a bigger character, a better man.” – Julie Gardner
- “From first holding the Doctor’s hand to a farewell on a beach, Rose is the Doctor’s reason to fight, to endure, to ensure there’s light in the darkness. Together they can achieve anything. As Episode 9 describes it, they are the stuff of legends.” – Julie Gardner
- “Obviously and quite overtly, really, the subtext of this show is that the Doctor is hopelessly in love with Rose.” – Steven MoffatSomething I wanted to finish for Nili’s birthday- HAPPY BIRTHDAY NILI!!! >:D<
