#let me tell you something about this scene okay #her little pause before she says ‘and the baby’ #like she’s not sure if she’s going to say it #but then she figures okay why not say it I’ve got nothing left to lose #and that little smile on her face when she does #because for all the heartache she’s feeling right now and has felt since she and the Doctor were separated #there’s this one thing that will always keep them together #but then the Doctor says ‘you’re not…?’#it’s this look of sheer terror and sadness on his face #that is not the face of a man who thinks the woman he loves is pregnant with another man’s child #he thinks she’s pregnant with his child #and now she’s trapped in a parallel world where he will never be able to reach her #but if she’d told him right then and there that she was pregnant with his child he would have torn both universes apart to get to them #and he can’t do that because he has to protect the universe and stay detached and nothing should cloud his vision #and Rose knows that because she knows him better than anyone so seeing that look on his face she says ‘it’s mum’s’ #and then that look of relief on his face is worth the lie #they only have two minutes and sometimes a lie is kinder than the truth
NO NO NO NO NO NO NO FUCK YOU FUCK YOU I HAD TO REREAD THE END OF THOSE TAGS FIVE TIMES BEFORE IT FUCKING HIT ME
FUCKING. NO. DON’T YOU PUT THAT SHIT IN MY HEAD YOU TWATFACE.
OMG BUT THE END….BUT….NOOOOOOO
It’s taboo to admit that you’re lonely. You can make jokes about it, of course. You can tell people that you spend most of your time with Netflix or that you haven’t left the house today and you might not even go outside tomorrow. Ha ha, funny. But rarely do you ever tell people about the true depths of your loneliness, about how you feel more and more alienated from your friends each passing day and you’re not sure how to fix it. It seems like everyone is just better at living than you are.
A part of you knew this was going to happen. Growing up, you just had this feeling that you wouldn’t transition well to adult life, that you’d fall right through the cracks. And look at you now. La di da, it’s happening.
Your mother, your father, your grandparents: they all look at you like you’re some prized jewel and they tell you over and over again just how lucky you are to be young and have your whole life ahead of you. “Getting old ain’t for sissies,” your father tells you wearily.
You wish they’d stop saying these things to you because all it does is fill you with guilt and panic. All it does is remind you of how much you’re not taking advantage of your youth.
You want to kiss all kinds of different people, you want to wake up in a stranger’s bed maybe once or twice just to see if it feels good to feel nothing, you want to have a group of friends that feels like a tribe, a bonafide family. You want to go from one place to the next constantly and have your weekends feel like one long epic day. You want to dance to stupid music in your stupid room and have a nice job that doesn’t get in the way of living your life too much. You want to be less scared, less anxious, and more willing. Because if you’re closed off now, you can only imagine what you’ll be like later.
Every day you vow to change some aspect of your life and every day you fail. At this point, you’re starting to question your own power as a human being. As of right now, your fears have you beat. They’re the ones that are holding your twenties hostage.
Stop thinking that everyone is having more sex than you, that everyone has more friends than you, that everyone out is having more fun than you. Not because it’s not true (it might be!) but because that kind of thinking leaves you frozen. You’ve already spent enough time feeling like you’re stuck, like you’re watching your life fall through you like a fast dissolve and you’re unable to hold on to anything.
I don’t know if you ever get better. I don’t know if a person can just wake up one day and decide to be an active participant in their life. I’d like to think so. I’d like to think that people get better each and every day but that’s not really true. People get worse and it’s their stories that end up getting forgotten because we can’t stand an unhappy ending. The sick have to get better. Our normalcy depends upon it.
You have to value yourself. You have to want great things for your life. This sort of shit doesn’t happen overnight but it can and will happen if you want it.
Do you want it bad enough? Does the fear of being filled with regret in your thirties trump your fear of living today?
We shall see.
