Doctor Who Rant
kira902k
Okay, so really quick post to rant about Doctor Who.
If you haven't seen up to Season 3, don't read this!



NOTE: If you're reading this, you should know that I wrote most of this without thinking, and I didn't really mean a lot of it. Please read the what I posted the day after this one (up there ^^) because it explains a bit more. I was just ranting here, and I'm totally wrong! :)

It pisses me off SO much that the Doctor always asks young, pretty girls to come with him. I mean I know that I should get over Rose, because she's gone, s'far as I know. But the Doctor and Rose were meant to be together. They were soulmates. So very very perfect for each other. And, okay, she's gone!
But after Season 2, the Doctor could have waited at least a little while before picking up another chick! But no, the second he meets Martha, he thinks, 'oh, hey, she's pretty! Maybe I she'd be fun to flirt with! I could make her fall in love with her, even though I'll never actually care about her feelings because I'm still in love with Rose!' I mean, I'm not defending Martha, I actually really don't like her and I'm glad she's gone for now, but seriously? The Doctor is such a womanizing flirt.
But that's not even what bothers me the most! What bothers me is that he doesn't think about his former companions at all. He just ditches them (or they get separated or whatever,) and then goes on with his life, picking up new girls. Erg! I mean we got a glimpse of this when we met Sarah Jane in season 1 (or 2). She was all depressed because he'd left her to grow old, and then found a new girl. Imagine how Rose would feel if he saw him picking up woman after woman?

Haha, I know, I'm totally crazy. It's just a TV series, and they're not real people, whatever. But still! I'm a sympathetic person, and I feel the emotions for the characters.

I just watched Voyage of the Damned (first one of season 4) and I was so upset how right away, he asks that young woman (kylie?) to come with him, and then at the end when he has the choice to take a smart, wise old man with him, he immediately turns it down, saying, "I travel alone."
Yeah, sure you travel alone. Unless you're a young, hot girl, then you can come with him. Rawr!

Now, that being said, let me clear this up. If the Doctor showed up on my doorstep, I wouldn't refuse him. You kidding me? I'm in love with him. But that doesn't stop me from seeing that he is a bit of a flirt. In a bad way. Still, if I could choose one thing to happen to me, it'd either be that I get an acceptance letter to Hogwarts, or that David Tennant shows up on my street. Coming for me. :P

Oh, and one other thing before I end this silly rant. I hate how he has kissed both of the other women he traveled/potentially traveled with, but he never really kissed Rose. I mean, sure, at the end of season 1, him and Rose have the most epic kiss ever, but she doesn't remember it after, so it doesn't really count. But then in season 3, Martha gets a kiss from him, and in Voyage of the Damned, he gives such a passionate kiss to Kylie.
The only reason this pisses me off is because I'm obsessed with how great Rose and the Doctor were as a couple. They were just perfect. And in all there time together, they could have had such an amazing romantic relationship, but instead, it was always hidden even though they were both clearly in love with each other from the start.
Seriously, there are only two people the Doctor could be with, and I'd be happy. The first is Rose. The second is me.
Oh and actually, the Doctor and Captain Jack Harkness would make such a good couple! It made me so sad when I found out Jack had a crush on the Doctor! Because he would never get him, and he would have to live forever knowing that. And they would have been so freaking awesome together. :P

Rant over.

I'm sorry. For anyone who actually read this, wow. You're either dedicated to my blog or as freakishly obsessed with Doctor Who as I am.
It's okay if you didn't read it all. This was mostly for me to vent my frustrations.
Wow, I talk a lot.

In other news: NaNoWriMo is not technically going well. As in, I only have 12 000 words, but i should have 25 000 by the end of tomorrow. I'm still proud of myself, and I've been working relatively hard on it. I should spend more time on it though, I know that. Ah! I haven't read in this entire month because every free moment is spent writing. Or doing homework.

Okay. Good night.

Oh my god, thank you so much for this comment. It was exactly what I needed.
I realize that using the words "womanizing flirt" was a much too strong thing to say. I wasn't really thinking, and deep down I knew that that's not at all what he is. Recently, I commented on a video of "Voyage of the Damned" saying a very short, concise version of this entire blog post, and the person who'd posted the video responded very angrily telling me that he wasn't a 'womaniser' at all and he feels a lot of pain and that I shouldn't be so assuming.
I never really meant womanising when I said it. I was just frustrated that he kept finding these girls who fell in love with him. It just upset me that he immediately asked Kylie in Voyage of the Damned to come with him. But I do realize that he is very lonely, and people like Kylie and Martha have the right sort of mind to work well with him.
I'm happy that you actually took the time to prove me wrong and explain why I was wrong, it was much more helpful than the angry comment I received on youtube. I guess I really should be more careful of what I say. Also, I should wait and see what happens in series 4 before I judge.
But I truly love the Doctor, and really, I'm just jealous that I'm not the one that he picks to come with him. =P

Anyway, everything you said in your comment is totally true and illuminating. I wasn't thinking about his heart(s) when I said that. It's true that he really just didn't want to get his heart broken again. And you're right, he does have to leave everyone eventually and that must be really hard for him, so I really shouldn't have been so accusatory.
Basically, you're right.
Thank you! I will edit this blog post to explain that my feelings have totally changed.
You rock. Leave lengthy comments whenever you want. :)
