#warehouse 13 #these opening titles were fucking awesome #but the fading of the first one made me think #if we get renewed #it will definitely be the final season #therefore they’ll have planned for the final episode #what if that’s how the show ends? #what if it’s an 80 year jump to the future and we see claudia as we know her but she’s caretaker now #and it zooms out and there are all these new agents milling about #(one of them a little bering-wells child thank you very much) #claudia has this look in her eye like she’s beginning to remember the old days #but she puts her mrs. frederic mask on as soon as she realizes what she’s doing #and then we see that what they’re actually doing is packing up the warehouse #claudia takes one final look out onto an empty warehouse floor #it’s here where she’s alone that she allows herself to remember #artie; steve; pete; myka; hg; mrs. frederic; leena; herself #and she smiles as she brings herself back to now #now the lights have begun to shut off #one row at a time until only artie’s office is lit #(and it will always be artie’s office to claudia) #she walks to the umbilicus door for the last time #shadows of years of memories follow her #claudia opens the door and looks back one last time #she takes a deep breath and closes the door slowly#the bright white light of the umbilicus fades #we’re left in artie’s office looking at the door until these light too fade to black #and BAM that’s the end of the show #brb having an emotional breakdown (via damianodefense)
WHY WAS I NOT INFORMED OF THIS
is that…IS THAT JOHN FUCKING BARROWMAN PULLING MARK BLOODY SHEPARD INTO HIS LAP AND HUGGING HIM?!
yup. therefore i must reblog again.
#that time in Doomsday when Jackie says there was never anyone else #and the Doctor looks down and then to the right #remembering how Rose tastes #then remembering how she feels writhing on the bed as he tries in vain to still her hips with his manly forearm resting on her belly #but no emotional memory #that shit’s too repressed
#he can’t help it #he’s so used to loss that he puts memories in these sort of little boxes where they can be filed away out of sight #and it’s useful but what it leaves him with are sensory memories that give him vague twinges of feeling #the little sigh rose gives when she settles onto him #the feel of her skin when she’s fresh out of the shower and still a little slick—all covered in droplets #the way her mouth falls open and her eyes flutter shut when he finds the right angle inside of her #and he is usually very good at knowing how to look at these memories objectively #and enjoy them for what they are without feeling them too much #but her smile sets his blood turning to champagne #all light and bubbling #and the very thought of her tugs at his hearts #so it’s all the more important to keep her safe #his rose—safe and happy #because if he ever had to close those boxes #to put her memory away #he’s got the horrible feeling he wouldn’t know how (tags via neverwhyonlywho)
1) She’s already living her dream before the Doctor enters her life.
It’s a common story arc for the Doctor to “rescue” his companions, not only from danger during individual episodes, but from the mundane of their own lives. Well, not so for Martha. Unlike many of the other companions, Martha isn’t in an at-loose-ends, stuck-in-a-rut place—she’s following her dream to do what SHE wants, and is doing a damn good job at it. And as frustrating as her family can be for her sometimes, she’s close to all of them and has good relationships with coworkers and friends. If she never met the Doctor? Martha would still be awesome. She’d be one of those people you met at a party and thought, “Holy crap, this woman is impressive.”
2) She’s brilliant—and not just in the book-smart way.
Sure, she’s got to be academically gifted—they don’t let just anyone into med school, and we see her take to extraterrestrial science later like a Ood to singing. But she’s also logical under pressure (“It’s not exactly airtight”), quick-thinking (“Expelliarmuus!”), resourceful (“Lucky I’ve just collected a DNA sample then, isn’t it?”) and street smart (“Now I’ve got a job in a shop, I’ve got to support him!”). If I had to choose one of the Doctor’s companions to go into an unknown adventure with, it would be Martha Jones hands down, even before she walked the entire world or got all her UNIT training.
3) She goes with the Doctor because she wants to have an adventure, and she is utterly gleeful about it.
Martha’s sense of wonder at seeing new worlds and distant eras is brilliant. It’s true that all of the companions have this to some degree, but it’s still worth mentioning.
4) She maintains her relationships with her family throughout her travels with the Doctor, and never sidelines them in favor of him.
This is primarily in contrast to Rose, who time after time ignores or abandons her mother or Mickey in favor of adoring the Doctor. Martha, on the other hand, puts her family first without exception. On the eve of the apocalypse, a teleport machine even takes her to see her mother because it’s the one place in the world she’d want to be above anywhere else.
5) She’s in love with the Doctor, knows he doesn’t love her, and even angsts about it—but it never enters her mind to think less of herself because of it.
We see more insecurity in canon love interest Rose (when she meets Sarah Jane) than we ever see in Martha. Martha knows the Doctor doesn’t see her that way—but that doesn’t stop her from knowing that she deserves to be seen that way by whoever does become her significant other, or that she’s awesome enough to be wicked attractive, or that she’s amazing in her own right. And that’s why she eventually walks.
6) She leaves the Doctor on her own terms.
And she’s the only one in the New Who who does. Rose gets stuck in a parallel world; Amy follows her husband into dying in the past; Donna … well, we know what happened to Donna; Jack gets left for dead on Satellite 5—heck, even the one-off companions usually don’t have great parting scenes; they die (Astrid) or the Doctor pushes them away (Lady Christina). Martha, on the other hand—Martha decides. The chapter of her life adventuring with the Doctor is over, and she needs to move on, and she needs to do so for herself.
7) She uses and builds on the experiences she had traveling the stars (and saving the world) in her own career and life.
Go back to everything she was doing before? Not a chance—not after seeing and learning so much! It seems like a natural progression for a former companion of the Doctor to end up on the fast track in UNIT, but Martha’s the only new companion (other than Jack, who was already a space/time traveler before he met the Doctor) to parlay her life-changing experiences into a career for herself that deals with the extraterrestrial. She works for Torchwood briefly as well before striking out freelance. I so want a show starring Martha and following all her adventures post-TARDIS.
8) In post-Season 3 episodes, Martha interacts with the Doctor as (almost) an equal.
It’s the Doctor’s show, of course. But in Martha’s later appearances, her role in the story is much less companion and much more equal ally. Particularly salient is “Journey’s End,” when Martha’s contribution and storyline is on par with Jack’s and Sarah Jane’s—the two characters who are the heroes on their own showsand therefore necessarily need to be proactive and useful in their crossover appearances.
9) She never regrets not being the Doctor’s companion anymore.
Rose makes her entire life about seeing the Doctor again. Amy and Rory live in a holding pattern waiting for him and drop everything every time he pops back in. Martha? She has several later opportunities to rejoin the Doctor, and never does. She’s building her own life now, one in which she’s the protagonist and not the sidekick, and that life is clearly rich with goals and loves and relationships that have nothing to do with the Doctor. She loved traveling with him, but she’s got her own trajectory for her life and career now.
10) And she ends up making her own rules.
Her first exposure to exploring space and time was with the Doctor. Her second was with UNIT. And, of course, she’s worked with and for Torchwood. But in the end, she winds up living by her rules and hers alone. In her final scene she’s toting a really big gun (she had expressly pointed out to the Doctor when she was working for UNIT that she didn’t carry, as a way of reassuring him she was still living according to “his” rules), and has officially broken from UNIT, Torchwood, or any other organization to go freelance. She’s her own woman and is carving her own place in space and time.
I found this here
- Jensen breathes
- Me: I'm too emotional for this
If you hate Elena and claim to ship Damon/Elena or Stefan/Elena, you don’t actually ship that. You can’t ship something if you hate half your ship.
What you actually ship is Damon/what his dick wants or Stefan/what his dick wants.
ATTENTION CLOTHING DISTRIBUTORS
