#i’m crying #oh i’m crying #i just watched this episode #i couldn’t bear to do it before #but i had to #and it’s just so apparent #how lonely he is #how powerless a time lord can be #without friends #he’s still got them #yes #but they have to leave him behind for better things #it’s so heartbreaking #donna leaves him the way she found him #in a wedding dress #and not having a clue of who he is #and martha finally found the man she was looking for all along even if she didn’t know it #and she’s still saving the world every day #rose is happy #just like she was when he found her #and that’s the way he wants to remember her #happy #and without the power of the bad wolf #just a girl #just a normal happy girl who would save the world #and he’d love her forever even if he could never actually have her #he’s recognizing their importance in his goodbye and paying them back for all they’ve done #and that’s it #that’s his reward #that’s his reward for saving so many worlds countless times #he asks for nothing in return #and that’s why he’s so lonely #because nobody else in the universe understands his burden #nobody #goddammit bbc i thought this was supposed to be a family show
all of you fuck off

This is how many children that died in their Hunger Games, without even being mentioned throughout the three books. All these children were under 18. All these children had parents. All these parents’ hearts sank to their knees during their child’s reaping. All these parents saw their terrified child off at the train station. All these parents heard the sound that signified their child’s death. All these parents received their cold, dead child in a wooden box. All these parents’ lives ended there. All these parents could say or do nothing. All these parents were merely thanked that they gave up their child. Thanked.
And the media focuses on the love triangle.
All these children and all these parents aren’t real
Yeah, sure, I guess that’s true. None of these people were real.
But let’s focus on what this series, and this fact, say about our society.
In the series, the Capitol’s media focuses entirely on the ‘fun’ of the Games- the fashion, the plot twists, the favorites, the strategies, the romance. And the entire time, they completely overlook the fact that 1,678 children between the ages of 12 and 18 have died. Usually brutally murdered by other 12 to 18 year old children.
And how does our real-life media react to this story when news of a movie adaptation reaches them? They talk about the romance. This tragic story of a girl who must choose between her long-time best friend and her new love. Even if she chooses Peeta, they still must fight to the death. The star-crossed lovers of District 12. And many readers of the original novels saw the books through the same lens. You would tell them that you read/ were reading the books and their first reaction was, “Are you Team Gale or Team Peeta?”
Meanwhile, children are fighting to the death.
The fact that our media, and many every-day people reacted to the Hunger Games the same as the Capitol media scares me.
I don’t want this world to be anything like the Capitol. I don’t think any of us do.
And the fact that most of us (including myself) never really considered how many children had died in the games also scares me. But, hey, it didn’t happen now/ in the current story, so it doesn’t matter, right?
THIs is actually the reason I thought the book was so thoughtful. western society IS the capitol.
