AND SO IT IS WRITTEN, THE DATE IS SET FOR THE SEASON’S MIDDLE, WHEN SHE RETURNS.
to everyone with finals and exams and big projects due very very soon and haven’t started anything yet
But look what you did!
# it hurts me # because usually by this point in a companions arc # aka at the end of their season # they believe in themselves # theyve traveled with the doctor and theyve done and seen such amazing things # and in doing so they realize their own potential # their own skills # but donna # despite everything shes done # saved a family in pompeii # freed the ood # solved murders with agatha goddamn christie # saved the doctor from himself #despite ALL OF THAT # she still thinks shes nothing special # because her entire life thats what shes been told # she has never been able to see just what a remarkable person she truly is # and the doctor is so surprised here # because he can see it # clear as day # hes seen it for a long time # and what kills me about donnas ending # isnt just that she loses her memories # she loses him too # her best friend in the universe # the one who listened #even when she wasnt shouting (via yaccbs)
I relate to Donna Noble.
Donna Nobel will forever be the companion I relate to the most.

OH MY GOD
Partly evil me would pick someone like Bill Gates so I could withdraw a small but sizable amount of cash for myself. (Although, I guess he would still know and wouldn’t be too happy.)
Mostly depressing me would probably pick my dad. I think it would be interesting to see his memories of us kids in our early days. And what he felt and thought about being a dad to us very stubborn girls. He is rather closed off and even his aging mind hasn’t opened him up emotionally.
remember(no pun intended) how Ice King tries to write a song for the princesses? And how Marceline’s cool with it until:
As soon as she hears him singing about PB, she starts to get an uncomfortable…dare I say jealous expression on her face.
Or maybe she doesn’t like the idea of him talking about PB because he’s, I don’t know, constantly harassing and kidnapping her
Though I am a closet Bubbline shipper, I can’t really get behind this “jealousy” theory. If you re-watch the episode, you’ll notice that Ice King mentioned Bubblegum in the first chorus of his song and Marceline didn’t look uncomfortable then. In fact, it wasn’t until he started to say “I really need someone” that she frowned.
In my opinion, the thing that really threw Marceline off was that Ice King was beginning to sound more vulnerable and less like the lecherous old man she had gotten used to. Having felt abandoned by Simon, Marceline was probably used to feeling justified in running away from the Ice King every time he tried to visit her, but by that point in his song he began sounding less like a evil wizard and more like an actual person.
That must cut Marceline deeply, after all he used to be her friend and father figure. Simon was there for her when no one else was— and here he’s talking about “needing someone” himself. Considering Marceline probably has an abandonment complex by this point (which is a topic I could talk about in length…), she can relate to that feeling, and it probably makes her feel guilty for shunning him for so long.
By this episode, Ice King/Simon and Marceline have essentially switched rolls. And that upsets her.
