Doctor Who AU: Saibra as the companion

If there was one thing Saibra knew, it was people. She’d worn enough faces and traveled up and down so many levels of society, picking up on so many different culture’s little habits and quirks that to her everyone was an open book. But there were very few people she’d ever admit that to. It was bad enough that people saw her as an identity thief, goodness knows how they’d react if they knew she could steal the secrets they kept beneath their skin.

She tried to convince herself that they day she got the gene suppressant and started traveling with the Doctor was the happiest day of her life, but that would be a lie. After so many years of being utterly alone, she was unprepared at how to enter into society as just Saibra, no more false faces to hide behind, and she often felt like a stranger in her own skin.

But it was her own. And she had more than enough time now to figure out exactly what that meant.

Doctor Who AU: Journey Blue as the companion

Every now and then a snippet of memory would dart it’s way across Journey’s mind, memories of life before the war. Of the old stone house that was cool in summer and a haven in winter. Of squealing wildly and chasing her brother through the woods where the leaves were blue and silver. Of the smell of a cooked meal, not one that had been rehydrated. She’d relish each one and hold them dear, as they reminded her of why she fought, why she would continue to fight even against all odds. Journey hated war, but she hated what it did to civilians more, hated how innocent lives could be obliterated in a moment, all without thought. She fought to protect those who couldn’t protect themselves.

By running away with the Doctor she’d exchanged a war theatre for much smaller, more personal wars. Everywhere there was strife, everywhere people needed protecting.

And she would save every single one.

Doctor Who AU: Courtney Woods as the companion

'A disruptive influence' they called her, in halting, lower tones as their eyes flicked back and forth, as if they whispered a terrible secret. A loud, brash, outspoken thing. Unruly. She would hear them, laugh to herself, and swagger off with a smile. Really, there were worst things to be called. And what's wrong with being disruptive? If someone shouted at her friend, she would shout louder. If a mate of hers was being told 'don't' she would say 'go for it'. And if some people thought lesser of her for that, that was their problem.

Besides, compared to the Doctor, she was positively placid.

But only on her bad days.

The Caretaker

Monday, September 1, 2014

i just want Journey Blue to be with a companion and i can’t stop thinking about how fantastic she’d be as the Doctor’s ‘live in’ traveler with Clara as the part timer dropping in every now and then to make sure Blue and the Doctor are still playing nice, and she and Clara could’ve had this wonderful relationship all secret grins and jokes that the Doctor is always not quite getting so he just pretends to ignore them as they giggle in the corner and one day Clara brings around her fellow teacher-friend-that-is-a-boy Pink and Blue kinda glares at him dangerously until she’s sure he’s worthy of her ‘travel buddy’ and the Doctor’s just glad that he now has a mate that doesn’t get the ladies’ jokes either and yeah basically really feeling like an incredible fantastic opportunity has been squandered because of some stupid unspoken ‘one girl per Tardis’ rule

The very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common. They don’t alter their views to fit the facts. They alter the facts to fit their views. Which can be uncomfortable if you happen to be one of the facts that needs altering. The Fourth Doctor, The Face Of Evil

I’M AN INCOHERENT FLAILING WAILING MESS AND IT’S ALL JANET FIELDING’S FAULT

Martha jones: first black doctor who companion …..ran away

She didnt run. She walked away from it all for her own safety and sanity. She did the smart thing.

You would’ve preferred her to die in another time or live in a parallel world AFTER her family had been subjugated to horrible conditions for a year under the master?

They would cheer the fuck out of her being killed. The fandom hated her.

It’s telling that in the Sherlock and Doctor Who fandoms (which often and do inter-lap), the two least liked characters - Martha Jones and Sally Donovan - are both Black women and the second least liked is Mickey Smith, a Black man.

Ah, Martha Jones bashing. A surefire way to test for a person’s intelligence.

The OP put up a bad quality picture of Dr Jones and a snide remark, so already I know that they’re not the sweetest cookie in the tin. It’s so obvious that Martha did not run away. We’re talking about the woman who walked the earth for a year, for goodness sake.

Martha leaving the Doctor out of her own free will, in recognition of the toxic environment she’d been living in and the desire for a better life - and understanding that a spectacular life of time and space travel is not necessarily a good life - is one of the best highlights for me of not only the revamped series, but of the whole 50 years. The Doctor was downright cruel to her at times, and later episodes so that she went on to blossom into a magnificent leader, warrior, healer and woman. (A part of me was disappointed that her and Mickey didn’t make a reappearance in the 50th special, but I understand that they’ve both left UNIT. Mores the pity.)

A lot more people can say this - and have said this - in a much better way than me, so I’m going to be blunt. The fandom did not hate her. Petty, loud mouthed factions did. She was not a terrible or flat character and her story arc was compelling and made sense. 
(And lets not forget the fact that River Song, the Doctor’s wife, had to carve a signal into a mountain’s side to get his attention.
Martha Jones got him back to Earth with one phone call.)
In conclusion. Martha Jones is wonderful and I would give anything for a Smith and Jones spin off.
And OP? You are racist. No other way around it.
