ASEXUAL CHARACTERS CAN HAVE ROMANCES IF THEY WANT AND ROMANCES DON’T NEED SEX AND WE SHOULD STOP LINKING SEX AND ROMANCE BECAUSE THAT’S PROBLEMATIC FOR A LOT OF REASONS FOR EXAMPLE IT MAKES ME ANGRY AND SAD
# I think during this moment when Davros is shoving the Doctor’s sins in his face and trying to make him feel unworthy # Rose isn’t looking at him with condemnation # She’s looking at him with sympathy # She knows him - she already knows the heart of him that Davros has challenged him to show her # And she is his equal in so many ways # She obliterated the Daleks and committed genocide just like he did # She has been manipulative and hard and cold as she’s traveled by dimension cannon and done what needed to be done #Because no one else could or would # Because she’s Rose Motherfucking Tyler # and he’s her Doctor # And while Davros is trying to evoke disgust # All Rose feels is sympathy and love (via gallifreyburning)

Bringing this back
moffat’s companions’ lives are all so strangely ungrounded in reality and i think it’s a good example of his very weak writing. in day of the doctor we see clara teaching - no explanation, no mention of it in the episode, and no build up to it. although obviously this was a (really lovely actually) nod to canon, it’s not the first time this has happened; amy just “became” a model in one episode and was never shown like this again (after her first job was as a kissogram). it’s impossible to imagine this happening with any of russell t davies’ companions, who all had lives incredibly minutely planned out; rose and mickey found their path to success obstructed by class boundaries and working manually, donna worked a succesion of uninspiring office jobs and even well off martha was shown physically working very hard to achieve her medical degree.
this ability to skip through professions as well as change locations and dump family just grounds the idea that moffat’s companions are strange, non-human, undeveloped creatures. their lives, trials and tribulations don’t matter outside of the doctor, and it’s like they’re a succession of barbie dolls; “i can be a model! i can be a teacher! i can be an archaeologist!” with an awful lot of pluck, a cheeky grin, and no substance whatsoever
My Heart Will Go On!Dean and Dean prime sitting on the hoods of their respective cars, sharing a case of beer, and comparing all the things that are different between their timelines.
"Well, you pretty much automatically win cuz you’ve still got Ellen and Jo."
"True, but that year you spent with Lisa sounds pretty sweet."
"Right up until it ended. Hey, did you spend those months with Sonny?"
"Damn straight. Robin?"
"Oh yeah. Hm… Cassie?"
"Yeah, just the once. Rhonda?"
"Nah, doesn’t ring a bell."
"Oh man. Oh man, dude, put down your beer. We’re going shopping."
And later, when Dean is fucking MHWGO!Dean around his new thong, one of them grunts out Cas’s name and is absolutely mortified until the other one is like, “It’s cool, man, me too.”
