Ok, so this is gonna be a rough post, and I apologize in advance for clogging up your dash with it.
I am not in the most ideal of situations at the moment. I haven’t been for about the past 5 years. I have just learned as of this weekend that I am being…
#This scene makes me so sad#because above all else#above UNIT and Torchwood#and even the Doctor#SHE was a doctor#Martha Jones helped people - her passion was to heal#and save lives#and now she might be the only one who can save the universe#but at the cost of the entire planet#she’ll kill them all#and it’s the last thing that she wants to do#but it’s the only option now#so when this woman pulls the gun on her and threatens to kill her#Martha sadly nods her head and tells her to do it#because then she wouldn’t have to make this choice#and it kills me
They said you might come.(via riveralwaysknew)
oh my god martha nearly did to the earth what the doctor did to gallifrey
oh my god
This is the exact reason why I maintain my position that Martha was not, under any circumstances, the companion.
She was the doctor.
Now I know that he’s always the same man at the core after regenerations so on and so forth, but when it really boils down, the doctor isn’t a timelord, the doctor is an idea. At least in the RTD era, every companion at one point or another, has had to make the choice to become the doctor.
Rose Became the Doctor when she accepted her fate as the bad wolf.
Mickey became the doctor when he stayed in the parallel universe.
Donna became the doctor during the meta-crisis.
Jack became the doctor when he ‘died’ for the first time trying to save everyone before Rose destroyed the Daleks.
But Martha? Martha was different, Martha was special. Martha never chose to become the doctor, because that was who she always was in her heart; and substantially she was the only companion of the RTD era who didn’t need to be saved by either the timelord doctor or TARDIS intervention (in the case of Jack, seeing as it was the badwolf, who brought him back).
Anyone who doesn’t like Martha because she was “just the rebound companion” clearly isn’t paying ANY attention to who she is, and deserves a kick in the ass. Martha was the strongest. She was lured away by a handsome man who flirted with her, but she stayed because he offered her a chance to see the universe and learn all about what makes each and every life important.
When Martha walked away from the Tardis at the end of Season 3, she knew who she was and thanked the Doctor for showing her the experiences she needed to have in order to accept the nature of what it is to be a “Doctor”. She learned how to make the choice, no matter what, to save lives. Even in the big picture sense, she would always remember how to save lives.
This is why she’s wonderful.
Q:soundwave is a big momma bird. sadistic, kinda scary momma bird. Have you or have you considered doing G1 soundwaves catchphrase?
Can we talk about how Hairspray is a story where a not-conventionally-attractive girl gets the hot guy in the end without having to Become “Pretty.” Because we need more stories like that.
It’s also story about breaking down the barriers of racism which we also need more of.
And it’s about nice hair and cheesy dance moves, more things we need more of
It’s a movie where John Travolta plays a chic, which we need more of
No. We don’t need more of men in roles which should have gone to plus size women.
Actually, the role was written as a man playing a woman because it’s a pantomime technique so it’s not like the movie purposely discriminated, It was literally just written that way and it’s probably one of my favourite comedic techniques.
Actually, the role was written as a man playing a woman because in the original Hairspray movie the role was played by Divine, a radical and influential plus-size drag queen. It is in honor of that original casting and in Divine’s memory that more recent stage and movie adaptations of Hairspray have continued to cast Mrs. Turnblad as a man in drag.
