The name’s Mickey. Mickey Smith. Defending the earth.
And that’s what I call character development.
But why did they have to turn Martha into the scared one to do it though. They could’ve just been like ‘fuck yeah let’s do this together’
Sorry… I don’t normally do this, but this scene actually matters a lot to me. It’s my second favourite of the goodbyes in that episode (the first being Rose).
This moment isn’t about fear. While the evil alien was still shooting at them, Martha never showed any fear (neither did Mickey, for that matter). She was thrilled, laughing, and having a fantastic time.
The moment that is giffed on the right above is after the Sontaran has been dispatched and Martha and Mickey are seeing the Doctor and recognizing that he’s saying goodbye. It’s not about fear, not of dying, but fear and upset on behalf of the Doctor, and Mickey isn’t protecting her, he’s comforting her.
This gifset, to me, isn’t about Mickey becoming brave, even though he did. It’s about Mickey becoming an adult. On the left, he is a submissive member of the relationship, seeking comfort when he’s afraid. In the second, he’s an equal member of the relationship, offering comfort when he and his partner are upset. Because that’s what adults should do.
In addition, Martha turns to Mickey not simply, to my mind, to seek comfort, but also because she knows that he will need comfort as well. Because the Doctor means a lot to both of them.

Remember when Shake It Off perpetuated the stereotype that POC only twerk?
more fanfictions about muggle-borns sneaking in pencils and calculators, and trading them illicitly, little black-market eraser dealers and “yo I got some graph paper if you wanna fuckin pass astronomy this year”
can they be nicknamed smuggle-borns or
"I never want to change so much that people can’t recognize me."
I absolutely love the parks and trails. There’s a park called Radnor Lake that’s gorgeous on a fall day. I’ve had some of my best days walking there with my dad, talking about life. Another huge priority for me is having a good coffee place to go and hang out. Fido has such a great atmosphere, and you can wander around browsing the shops in Hillsboro Village once you’re there. I love driving past the Bluebird Cafe, because that’s where I played the acoustic show that ended up getting me a record deal. The other areas where I like to go for cute restaurants and shopping are 12th South and East Nashville. Now I have to stop because I sound like I am the president of the Nashville Tourism Board. Sorry, not sorry, I just love it here.
