"We had adventures"
Heavy questions for a Wednesday, eh, Nonny?
Why did the Doctor say “quite right, too” when Rose told him she loved him?
What could he possibly mean by that?
Why didn’t the old fool just tell her that he loved her back?
I think the simple answer is this:
I don’t for even a moment believe that the Doctor found the crack that allowed him to see Rose for the last time by accident. I firmly believe that he scoured the universe searching for some way to get to her- some way to bring her back to him.
I believe that when she said “so?” when he told her that the universes would collapse, he laughed because he had said the same.
I believe that he stood staring at the dying sun, steeling himself to say goodbye to the one person in all of time and space whose hand he wanted in his own.
I believe that when Rose was so brave as to tell him that she loved him after he had told her that they would never see each other again, after she gave him the gift of her heart, even when he couldn’t give her the gift of all of time and space any longer, he was shocked.
I believe that his mind and heart stuttered to a halt in that moment, and his mouth- his ever-running gob- continued without input and spat out the first, thoughtless, meaningless, useless words that were on his tongue.
I believe that “quite right, too” was just filler for a being who could have had any words in the universe at that moment, except for the right ones.
I believe that it was him hesitating to burden Rose Tyler- alone in another universe, too far away for him to reach- with his love. Because the love of the Last Time Lord, Ka Faraq Gatri, the Destroyer of Worlds, the Oncoming Storm, and the ender of the Last Great Time War would, he would believe, be a burden.
I believe that the Doctor may have thought that if he didn’t say the words, he might be able to keep his hearts unbroken when his time ran out and he had seen Rose Tyler’s face for the last time.
I believe that her confession proved to him that there was nothing in the universe that could save his hearts- not Time, not Space, not silence, not words.
I believe that he nearly told her in that moment.
I believe that he did tell her, when he was another man with one heart and there were three hearts in two breasts that beat to the rhythm of Rose Tyler’s name.
This. All of it.
This was gorgeous. BUT, can someone explain WHAT BRITISH PEOPLE MEAN when they say “quite right, too.” Like (Broadchurch moment here!!) Ellie Miller says it to her husband over the phone when HE says HE loves HER.
British people? Can you enlighten the Americans?
My understanding of Brit!speak (as an American) is that it means “Absolutely” or “Completely.” His way of agreeing with her words, even if he was unable to say them himself.
The use of the word quite in British vernacular isn’t the same as it is for Americans. I believe the word holds less power. For Americans, quite is a qualifier that means a lot or very. It’s less committed in British usage. More akin to sort of or a bit. I think here the usage is flippant. As if to say ‘of course you do’ . And isn’t it just like ten to take such a powerful moment and try to lighten it with teasing. It’s very them.
Reblog if your cramps have ever
- made you vomit
- lasted between 2-3 days
- stopped you from being able to walk or run
- made you cry
It’s not considered a viable excuse on any occasion, and I would like to know why.
- woken you up at night the pain was so bad
- made you pass out
- made you unable to stand up without doubling over and grabbing onto the closest object for support
friendly reminder that it’s okay to cry
i don’t care what happened, if a fictional character got hurt, or if an actor died, or if one of your friends made a ‘joke’ that hurt you, or you’re just having a shitty day, or even for no reason at all
it is always okay to cry
