No but do you remember this? He shows up at Rose’s house, looks in the mirror and comments on his new appearance, do you realize what that means? He hasn’t see himself yet! This is right after he regenerated, he changed his face and popped right into Henrik’s without time to even glance in the mirror. Do you know what this means?
Not only was Rose Tyler the first face the tenth Doctor saw…
She was the first face the ninth Doctor saw as well.
He’s new. He barley has a single memory left in his mind, but he knows this. He remembers robots trying to repair a ship with human parts, he remembers something about these roses…
These yellow Roses that he just can’t seem to leave on the ground.
He’s still trying to figure out who he is now and the first situation he’s thrust into is one that he’s already experienced, with his pink and yellow girl. I think this is beautiful simply because this would be the first regeneration that Rose wouldn’t be involved with, she didn’t experience it with him and he didn’t visit her right before he died, and yet the very first thing he does in this new body is go through this same adventure that he’d been through before with Rose Tyler.
Rose parallels have been all over last season and now, the very first episode with this new Doctor is one he’s had with Rose. And right after he’s done saving the day, do you know what he suggests they do? When Clara agrees that she won’t leave him and she accepts this new life, do you know what he ask her?
He asks her to go get chips. And cheap date that he is, he makes her pay. Sound familiar?
"Do that for me, Rose. Have a fantastic life."
When the Doctor said this to her, he thought he was going to die. He thought he would never see her again, and she would just go off and be able to lead a fantastic life without him. He never thought that she would do the impossible and open up the very core of the TARDIS, and become the time vortex just to save his life.
So after he regenerated and she agreed to still accompany him, they were at it again. Running around the universe saving people having adventures, and still ignoring their feelings for one another.
So when Rose got trapped in that parallel world in ‘Doomsday’ and he said to her “Rose Tyler-” He thought that was the end of them. He thought he would never see her again, and she would just go off and try to lead a fantastic life without him. He never thought that she would do the impossible, for a second time, and build a dimension cannon and come back to him.
Then he was shot by that Dalek, and to stay the same man for her, he accidentally created another, and he finally realized what he had to do.
Rose Tyler had been everything to him. She had come to him time and time and time again when he needed her most, even if he himself couldn’t find a way to get to her, and she stayed with him always, even when he couldn’t give her anything of what she deserved and the both of them wanted.
But now he could. Now there was a version of himself that could be with her always, and love her as an equal rather than as a Timelord loves a human. They could finally have what both of them needed most: each other.
And although this meant that a part of him would never see her again, that was almost OK because now she would have what he always wanted her to have, but she was never able to have before.
Rose could fianlly have a fantastic life, because Rose could finally have him.
In “Fathers Day” Rose makes a threat. She tells him she sees through him into the man he really is, she knows that he’d never leave her. He couldn’t.
And it breaks my heart to think of this. He needed her, and then she was just gone. She was the girl of impossible things just as much as he was, and this just makes it so much worse. Every single time he’d send her away for her own safety she’d find a way to come back, even if it involved absorbing the time vortex. He probably waited days, weeks, before he burnt that sun to say goodbye to her. He searched for every possible way, and gave her enough time to pull another amazing Rose stunt and come back to him.
And they couldn’t. But I don’t ever think he really gave up on her, maybe on himself a little bit, but never on her. In his own way I think he was always sort of waiting…
“I’ll make you wait a long time…” Oh Rose Tyler, if only you knew just how long he’d wait for you.
justme-mickey said: I'm curious. What do you think of the girl in the fireplace? Do you think the doctor loved Reinette or did he just fancy her? That episode confused me a bit and I still don't understand the relationship the doctor had with Reinette. What about Rose? Was he really going to leave her on that spaceship?
The Doctor would have never left Rose. He would have another protocol 1 set up to take her home, Rose just wanted to wait as long as possible because she loved him and didn’t want to leave him. As for the Doctor and Reinette, imagine you were completely in love with someone, and then a celebrity you have a crush on says they like you, you would never give up the real love for the crush, not if it’s love like the Doctor and Rose had. It had been a while since he’d fet another person in his head, like the Timelords used to be, but he would have never, ever, really left Rose for a “fling”. His duty as the Doctor was to protect her, but he never loved her. She was interesting, and someone he admired, but she was not Rose.
This was what he wanted. The Doctor wanted Rose to be with tentoo, it was the only way that he was going to be able to give her everything she wanted and needed. He wanted her to love him, and finally be able to be love by him in return. This was what he wanted for her.
But that doesn’t change the fact that in this moment…Rose Tyler broke the Doctor’s hearts.
officialmarss said: who do you think the doctor loves most, rose or river?
This question is entirely contingent on which Doctor you’re talking about. Nine, ten, and tentoo all loved Rose and although I know she will always hold a special place in his heart I believe that the eleventh Doctor was in love with River.
These were different kinds of love however. He loved Rose because she gave him hope, and saved him, and he loved River because she was a mystery worth solving and was exciting.
If we’re going with separate Doctors you’d have to look at those separate Doctors, but if were going for the whole, the complete embodiment of the Doctor, then it would be without a doubt Rose, and let me tell you why: The Moment
In the 50th the Moment looked into the Doctors future and past, it saw everything and the person that it decided the best person to give him hope, and strength, was Rose. Also in “let’s kill hitler” when the Doctor asks the TARDIS to give him someone he likes, it gives him Rose. Now this was the eleventh Doctor, and I think that eleven loved River with all his hearts, but Rose will always be there with him in some sense.
We all have people we love, but there can only one person that you love most. I understand moving on and finding new love, and new people to share yourself with, but that will never diminish the love you had, and I think that’s what’s so great about Rose and the Doctor. He has moved on from her, and in this body no longer loves her like he used to, but still loves her in his own, new way, and holds her in his hearts.
The Doctor loved both women for different reasons and in different ways, but he still loved both.
This moment was so beautiful. Give me someone I like, and who shows up? The first face, out of every single person he’s ever traveled with,and every face he’s ever lost and the very first person that TARDIS chose was Rose Tyler. Funny, that’s the same face the moment chose when it looked into the Doctor’s future and his past. Every time he’s fallen and he thinks he’ll never pull himself back up - like right after he destroyed his planet, or when he thought he was going to die, or when he needed a reason to fight for Galifrey - Rose Tyler is always there. She’s his rock, his constant symbol of good in this world.
For the Doctor, it’s always been and it’ll always be Rose Tyler.
And I can’t help but think they they’re beautiful. And not just who they are, but who they are when they’re together. They compliment each other. They’re exactly what the other person is missing and they fill holes in their lives that they probably never even knew were there. They made each other better, and they made each other happy. Now if that’s not love, then would someone please explain to me what is?
He had been preparing himself. He knew that as soon as that star started to burn he’d have mere moments left, and he had had time to think about what to say and what he wanted her to hear. He knew that nothing was going to go as he planned though. All he could do was stand there and follow her lead, if he was honest with himself it’s what he’d always done. Follow her, that is. Who was he supposed to look to now? What was he supposed to do when he needed to reach out and grab a hand that was no longer there, and a hand that would never be there again. He had time to prepare though. He knew exactly what to expect and what was coming. But no amount of preparing could ever prepare him. Her purple shirt that he stole from her room only vaguely smelt of her anymore, and the jump seat looked so empty without her sitting on it. But he knew that those things would happen. He had prepared himself for all of these feelings and all of these pains.
He had prepared for this. He knew what was coming.
But he cried anyways.
