This is what i found in my Drafts collecting dust:
#oh rory #first he had to come to terms with the fact he was called a friend#not a boyfriend #and the fact that some man with funny hair came up to him and grabbed his clothes #stared into his eyes#interrogated him and spoke in sync #about the coma patients #then he realised what his childhood consisted of #dressing up as the raggedy doctor for miss amy pond #and there he is#HE ISN’T IMAGINARY #THE DOCTOR IS REAL #that doesn’t end there #because at the hospital #he meets a lady with supposedly her daughters #and one of the girls speak #WITH THE LADY’S VOICE #then the doctor comes back climbing up a fire engine ladder #he witnesses the ACTUAL prisoner zero’s true form #WHO DA MAN happens #so not impressed #and then he’s so embarrassed he turns away while the doctor’s changing #and poor rory amy keeps staring- I’D LIKE SOME OF THAT #then the doctor keeps chucking random bits of other people’s clothing at him on the rooftop #rory isn’t impressed he’s stealing #he’s even less impressed the doctor’s calling the aliens back! #so the doctor disappears #unbeknown to rory though #2 years later amy decides to travel with the doctor #and flies away on her wedding night#then after nearly dying in the time of angels #amy kisses the doctor #his stag do was going so well #leaving voice message for amy #then what do you know #THE DOCTOR POPS OUT OF A CAKE #admits amy kissed him and as soon as rory sees the TARDIS #he ain’t impressed #he’s done some RESEARCH #then in venice the doctor’s light is bigger than his #*COUGH COUGH* #now comes the time when rory starts dying #even in a dream/ sorta dream/ sorta reality/ actual dream as part of amy’s choice #he turns to ash and even though he’s a great doctor #mrs poggit got him #HOWEVER GOOD TIMES FOR RORY#AMY CHOOSES RORY #but then rory dies for real and amy can’t even remember him #even the rory in twenty years waving over the hill disappears #so rory becomes a roman!#he does a cool swordy thing to save amy #now comes the time when rory starts dying #even in a dream/ sorta dream/ sorta reality/ actual dream as part of amy’s choice #he turns to ash and even though he’s a great doctor #mrs poggit got him #HOWEVER GOOD TIMES FOR RORY#AMY CHOOSES RORY #but then rory dies for real and amy can’t even remember him #even the rory in twenty years waving over the hill disappears #so rory becomes a roman!#he does a cool swordy thing to save amy #but rory isn’t really rory- he’s PLASTIC #unintentionally kills amy as the world ended #BUT AS THE LAST CENTURION HE PROTECTS AMY IN THE PANDORICA #THEN IT’S TRUST THE PLASTIC ;) #bless rory he loves amy and still loves her even though she cries #but then it’s all good #the doctor’s back WOOHOO DOCTOR DANCING #but then amy wants to snog a la la doctor around some bush #AND IT’S OUR WEDDING!! #then it’s goodbye leadworth and woo hoo a christmas carol BAM
So the Tenth Doctor, who was a lost man, became the Time Lord Victorious, with a power greater than that of any Time Lord in existence: a power that must always save the people who were important, a power worthy of a Time Lord who had conquered Death!Before that, the Ninth Doctor, who was an lonely man, decided that he could not go further on his journey without his Rose, and he withdrew the entire vortex from her head and saved her from Death, taking his own life in the process.And then Death came to the Eleventh Doctor and she could not stand to take his life. The Eleventh Doctor was the oldest of the Doctors, and quite clever, and he forgave Death. He told Death that he would not be allowed to go forth from that place without being followed by Death. And then he lived.
That’s the choice, Donna. It’s Pompeii or the world… If Pompeii is destroyed, then it’s not just history - it’s me. I make it happen… Vesuvius exploded with the force of twenty-four nuclear bombs. Nothing can survive it. Certainly not us.
The last thing I was expecting to feel in just the second episode of Donna’s run as a regular companion is All The Feelings. But this beautiful, impeccably acted scene pretty much sums up everything I love about Donna Noble and her relationship with the impossible, skinny spaceman who inadvertently kidnapped her on her wedding day. She is so brave here, and so compassionate: how many people would, in all sincerity, react the way she does when told that she’s not going to survive a cataclysmic explosion that would set the universe on the right course? You can see it in the Doctor’s face too - ‘Never mind us’, Donna says - and he always knew that he only takes the best, but it’s at this precise moment that he realises just how very true that is of Donna.
And that’s not enough beautiful character and relationship development for one scene, oh no - because Donna then goes on to tell the Doctor, without saying a single word, that she understands now what it really means to be the last of the Time Lords, what it means to carry with him in his everyday life the weight and burden of so many lives and so much guilt. She doesn’t just stand there and watch him take on another load of guilt as he changes history. No, she takes it upon herself to share his burden and the pain that comes with the choices he must make - she puts her hands on his, and lets him know that the choice is hers too. It’s not just you - we make it happen - you’re not alone.
