well i don’t like how there is no choice involved. he meets her and she tells him she loves future him and he will love her in the future. she is brainwashed into being obsessed with him, and then he tells her that he loves the future her and she will love him back. neither of them were given the option of having any say in the matter, they were both predetermined by way of time loop.
i don’t like their relationship (and not because i ship doctor/rose, because i don’t give a toss about eleven/rose one little bit).
i don’t like how their conversations are just a witty back and forth game of one-liner tennis. the marriage stereotypes straight out of the 1950s bore me to tears.. (~*~*honey i’m home~* ~*~*and what sort of time do you call this~*~*).
i don’t like how her life literally revolves around him from conception by his friends, to birth as a perfect weapon to kill him, to growing up brainwashed to be obsessed about him, training to kill him, studies archaeology just to find him, is kidnapped to kill him, kills him, spending the rest of her days in prison for him so he can stay in the shadows despite the fact she could just escape prison and never come back that doesn’t mean that the murder (which she didn’t even commit in the first place and there were no witnesses so why even go to prison in the first place. like the silence are gonna call 911 and report it or something?) no longer happened.
she’s pardoned not because of her efforts to be pardoned in ToA but because he has deleted himself out of a database (wow heads up criminals, all you have to do is delete your crimes off the computer and then you’re released because your bad deeds no longer count!), and then she dies to save him.
i think he’s abusive for making her think she’s got to ‘hide the damage’ and ‘never let him see you age’ for his own happiness. i think he’s abusive by screaming at her, leaving her to break her wrist and literally running out of the room effectively going ‘LALALALA I CAN’T HEAR YOU, YOU’LL JUST HAVE TO FIGURE OUT A WAY TO NOT BREAK YOUR WRIST’ instead of breaking the angels arm and just… printing in the magical book of time loops that she DID break her own wrist. time loop solved!
i don’t like how they scream at each other how embarrassing the other is. i don’t like how she’s elevated above all the other women in his life because she ””married him”” (in an alternate timeline, with a robot) and she apparently knows his name which makes her super important… despite the fact he didn’t want to tell her, she forced it out of him, and his name is in an easily findable big book on a pedestal under a spotlight in the TARDIS library.
i don’t like the… sexual implications between her and eleven. it’s not even subtextual it’s out and out implying threesomes and all sorts, and coupled with eleven’s childish immaturity wrt sex, it’s disgusting.
i don’t like how while she’s dead/in prison he’s allowed to swan around kissing people and leering at ‘tight’ dresses, it’s never said that they’re in an open relationship, that’s not canon.
i don’t like doctor/river shippers who latch onto video game canon and claim that river has met and seduced every single doctor (INCLUDING NINE????) and then… wiped their memories so they will forget her. GROSS!
tl;dr i hope that this relationship is never brought up or mentioned ever ever again.
