Tenth Doctor + Rose Tyer: Tooth and Claw/Fear Her (aka the episodes where Ten does not wear a tie)
Tara Maclay + [Being the bravest fucking character ever]
Let’s be clear. Tara was more afraid of Glory, more afraid of being brainsucked than DEATH. To Tara facing this hell god, losing all she was, that was more terrifying to her than being killed. Just think about that for a fucking second. And yet, there she is, in the midst of being tortured by Glory, and having Glory tell her in detail everything that Tara’s worst fear will be if she doesn’t give up the key…and she thinks about Dawn, and Buffy, and Willow and all the rest of the scoobies….and she’s brave. She is strong like an amazon. She has more strength than anyone could ever imagine. She’s brave enough to face a fate that she personally is more afraid of…that she finds worse, than death.
And that friends, is why Tara Maclay is a fucking badass.

Rose + The Doctor
One Scene Per Episode - Doctor Who.
2x05 “Rise of the Cybermen”.
#i would like to speak for a bit about this scene#because to me it’s just so obvious that they are experiencing a shift in their relationship#and yeah there are better points about these eps to illustrate this shift than this specific scene#(like the doctor being terrified of rose leaving him to stay with her father for example)#but i’m gonna talk about this scene anyway #BECAUSE#here we see Rose quite overtly exhibit a bit of jealousy#and look at the doctor’s FACE #and the way he goes all squeaky on the ‘yeah’#and the way he doesn’t tell her off for being a bit mean about lucy#because he’s been in the dog house recently#so he can understand Rose’s point on this #BUT anyway where was I? #oh yeah#by this point #the doctor and rose are getting even more couple-y#and i think this scene #with Rose being all territorial and him letting her#and them basically acting how married couples act when one of them brings up another woman/man#is very demonstrative #of where their relationship is at#(and then there’s a set back because mickey leaves and it’s all a bit unsettled but then THEN oh THEN#then we get to the dates like Idiot’s Lantern#and the juicy bits like post-Satan Pit smutfic#and thepost-coital hair-plaiting of Love and Monsters #and the foreplay of Fear Her#and everything is perfect (via lauraxxtennant)
