for realmof_themuse: 1.31.3 Who is the most innocent?

It used to be Mickey. I think that's why I hated him---no, no, I didn't hate him, I merely disliked him immensely---because of how innocent he was. Smiles and crushes, and an obnoxious good-natured personality that didn't even try to hide.

He was…good, in many ways. I suppose I can understand why Rose dated him, he's not so bad. Smart in a stupid sort of way, easygoing, and curious. And…innocent.

It was watching himself die that changed him, I think. He's not…he's not Mickey, not really. Not anymore. Not an innocent, smiley boy. No more laughs, no more jokes. He's a man, now. A darker, meaner man. He smiles when a Cyberman dies, and that's all. I suppose I can understand…I've…I've been there myself. I remember the War, I remember…I remember how…everything changes when you become a soldier.

Another soldier not afraid to die.

How is it I am the one to take that innocence from those I care about?
