nope not buying it, it is a super asshole move to invite your friends to watch you be fake-murdered and then let them grieve your fake-death for years and then show up at their doorstep without an apology
all that stuff about “remember what you’re leaving” would be very nice and understandable if he had been dying for real but since it was all part of his plot to fake his death, it is just pure manipulative bullshit. he wasn’t dying, he didn’t need them there for moral support, he put them through emotional hell for no reason other than ???? vanity? who the fuck knows
besides if he had wanted them to “move on” he shouldn’t have kept disrupting their life over and over until they eventually get weeping angeled into the great depression
But you stay on this side?

#oh my god #I’d forgotten this scene #this is why, isn’t it #this is why he always told her how special she was #how important #how brilliant #because he remembered the time when he was so callous #the time that, for all he knows, might have contributed to her shitty self esteem even more #the time he told her she wasn’t special or important #which coming from him is harsh #I mean the Doctor thinks everyone’s important #but in that moment #with a brain addled with heartbreak #and a heart aching for his Rose #he told her what she already thought about herself #and who knows #maybe that’s why she never believed him
the Doctor + “Rose Tyler”
Eleven saying “Rose Tyler” is like shoving a fork through my heart.
#yeah it feels like a fork to the heart because 11 isn’t even really the doctor#for me at least#he’s another version#a whole different time lord#he never traveled with donna and learned that everyone is important#he never learned to consider others from martha#he never fell in love with and become so human from rose#no 11 hatched without retaining his old self#a new born chick with a huge gap of time between when 10 did his farewell tour and crash-landing into amelia pond’s garden#11 saying the name that was so reverently said by 9 and 10 feels wrong#it reminds me that 11 forgot all he was with his old faces#it reminds me that he’s forgotten martha and donna#because if he remembered the three companions who he loved and learned from#he would not act as he did to amy and clara#he would not have had the relationship he did with river#(and that’s not to say that the doctor shouldn’t have moved on#because life is about doing just that#but i never got to see 11’s love for river#i was told that it existed and was expected not to question it#when it took so very long for the doctor to fully open up to rose and show his love for her#and not until the very end was even able to verbally admit it#and even so not as himself#no it doesn’t make sense that he would so quickly and overtly love river#not to me) (via asideremarks)
