Those hardest to love need it most




Hi, my name's Becca (Lazy Academic Elf-Queen) and here are a few things you might need to know, or maybe you just forgot: 20, wandering star, voyageur at heart & warbler in search of a quest.
I am so fucking impressed with the sheer amount of hashtag going on in this post that i am compelled to reblog. bravo whovians for your dedication. bravissi-fucking-mo (aka the greatest compliment I have ever received)

#if you do not think #that this is what two people who deeply love each other looks like #then I honestly do not understand you #love is an enormously complex thing #and the fact that Hollywood claims that ‘true love’ can only be found in sexual relationships is absolute bollocks #platonic has come somehow to mean ‘lesser love’ in our society #when in fact what Plato was talking about was the epitome of selfless giving love #the thing the Greeks called agape #the love where you don’t have to ask yourself if the other person loves you #you are each other’s constant #and the only thing you are ever sure of is each other #you never doubt that the other person loves you #because to do so would be like denying gravity or the existence of stars or the second law of thermodynamics #even if it is not always obvious #if it is hidden #it is always always there #and this is the problem Moffat and co ran into with Amy and Rory #they were not each others constant #even though the writers tried so hard to make Amy and Rory the MOST EPIC LOVE STORY IN THE HISTORY OF TIME AND SPACE #they constantly placed pressure on the relationship and illustrated time and time again that this was not an unbreakable union #that Rory’s insecurity and Amy’s wanderlust were incompatible #that Amy had to settle down to please Rory because he had loved her so much and didn’t she owe that to him #that their marriage did almost end #whereas Amy and the Doctor #through all their struggles #all the missed moments and wrong turns #never ask the other to change for them #and intrinsically understand each other #deep calling out to deep #and when Amy cried in TATM #it wasn’t just because she was scared #she was staring into the abyss of agony that is losing one’s soul-mate #childhood sweetheart #best friend #she went with Rory yes because she loved him #but also because he was alone #and she knew the guilt would forever gnaw at her if she left him alone #and he would never forgive her #but the Doctor #he would understand #he always understood #and as in every great love story #he would prove his love by letting her go (via ameliapondthehistoryqueen)
