The name’s Mickey. Mickey Smith. Defending the earth.
And that’s what I call character development.
But why did they have to turn Martha into the scared one to do it though. They could’ve just been like ‘fuck yeah let’s do this together’
Sorry… I don’t normally do this, but this scene actually matters a lot to me. It’s my second favourite of the goodbyes in that episode (the first being Rose).
This moment isn’t about fear. While the evil alien was still shooting at them, Martha never showed any fear (neither did Mickey, for that matter). She was thrilled, laughing, and having a fantastic time.
The moment that is giffed on the right above is after the Sontaran has been dispatched and Martha and Mickey are seeing the Doctor and recognizing that he’s saying goodbye. It’s not about fear, not of dying, but fear and upset on behalf of the Doctor, and Mickey isn’t protecting her, he’s comforting her.
This gifset, to me, isn’t about Mickey becoming brave, even though he did. It’s about Mickey becoming an adult. On the left, he is a submissive member of the relationship, seeking comfort when he’s afraid. In the second, he’s an equal member of the relationship, offering comfort when he and his partner are upset. Because that’s what adults should do.
In addition, Martha turns to Mickey not simply, to my mind, to seek comfort, but also because she knows that he will need comfort as well. Because the Doctor means a lot to both of them.
All I can say is…wow. Not a good feeling.
Officer Darren Wilson’s gofundme has more money donated than Michael Brown’s memorial fund. White privilege at it’s finest.
I don’t usually post about stuff like this, but please share this in hopes of more people donating to Michael Brown’s family. You can find the gofundme page: here.
