This is kind of a mess, but I’m posting it anyway.
martha jones is flawless and I love her
I feel the same way about people who don’t like Martha Jones as I do about people who don’t like Nine.
YOU. ARE. WRONG.
Martha is fucking flawless.
I had to explain to my aunt what a BAMF was because I had no other way to describe Martha.
She was like, “oh” like, “Obviously Martha Jones is a bad ass mother fucker. That’s a no brainer.”
Having literally just finished watching “Last of the Time Lords” about five minutes ago and sobbed in a way that “Doomsday” never made me, this is so relevant. I’ve got no problem with people liking Rose where I don’t, but if you don’t like Martha, I hope a Dalek comes and attacks your genitalia with it’s egg-beater. She was brave and clever in so many different ways, ways that Rose never was, and she walked away from the Doctor because she knew she deserved better than to subject herself to consistently feeling like sloppy seconds (more or less). She saved the world. Not just the world, the future of the fucking universe. She’s a fucking lioness. She’s magnificent. And she deserved better than to let herself go on feeling like that. She realized, too, that it was how the Doctor felt and that it wasn’t really either of their faults, though. That’s the beauty of it. The Doctor had feelings and that was fine, but she realized she shouldn’t be forcing herself into a situation where she was going to feel second rate. Because she’s fucking first rate, man. Over and over and over again throughout the series, she kept hearing or being told by other people or feeling that she was useless. The Master called her useless to her face. And you know what she did?
She. Laughed. At. Him.
Because she’d done enough things and seen enough things, saw the motherfucking end of the universe, that she realized just how good she was. How glorious. She’s so fucking first class, she’s the goddamned pilot of the private jet of Magnificent Airlines.
EVERY companion is beautiful and important. Rose is important. Martha is important. Donna, Amy, Rory, ALL OF THEM. They are all brilliant. Just like all the Doctors. And everyone’s entitled to their opinions, but by god if you’re going to hate on or dismiss Martha Motherfucking Fantastic Lioness of My Heart Jones because of her feelings for the Doctor, ESPECIALLY when she did the smart thing for herself and her family and her planet in the end and walked away, then you and I simply cannot coexist in the same place physically or internetally without me wishing that a Weeping Angel will come steal you away to the middle of the spread of the Black Plague.
I’m vicious over my Martha Jones. You keep your “Roes”, and leave my Martha alone.
(Basically, same applies to Nine, as someone said above. If you dislike Nine, may you find yourself in the middle of a nest-egg of Racnoss babies right when they are hatching.)
