In the style of ninewho, this is mostly me gushing to my muse cause I'm usually a major ass to him and he deserves a bit of a break.
I've loved many Doctors before you. Since I was 9, in fact, when I was first introduced to that cricket-loving, decorative-vegetable wearing blond bloke, I've loved all of you. Well, I wasn't entirely fond of the rainbow-wearing you. But he grew on me a bit.
And then there were years without you. Years where I had only memories and VHS tapes to remember what it was like with you saving the universe. And then you came back. And you were angry and dark and positively wonderful.
Since I had been writing muses for a while when you came back, I knew I wanted some version of you. I tried the second you and the ninth you out as muses, and they didn't work out so well. It wasn't bad, but in those forms you never really talked to me. And then, on a whim, I picked up this version of you. Suddenly there were long rants to be rambled and shiny things to be looked at and places you wanted to go and things you wanted to do.
I think you're absolutely wonderful. You're not always dark, and you're not always funny, and you take me to new and interesting places with my writing that I don't think I would've gone to without you. Sure, you ramble. Sure, you're occasionally ridiculously over-the-top and sometimes you're even downright annoying. But you know what? That's why I love you. You're just the right mix of good traits and bad ones to make you feel more real to me. And, really, trying to remove the blatherly fanboying-ness from you is a bit like trying to remove the crazy from John Travolta. It's part of who you are and nobody really wants to lose that.
You fit with my personality quite well, and that's why I think we make a great team. Though, really, I wish you'd just lighten up and let me occasionally write a bit of smut with you not getting your knickers in a twist. Christ, I have enough icons of you being sexy to fill up my walls in a Mark Gatiss-style stalker fashion, so stop being difficult and let me use them.
Though, I do love you because your personality makes it difficult to just do something. Action scenes are never repetitive and sex scenes are always unpredictable. Sometimes it feels like I have to go to mount Doom and back just to get you to walk across a fucking room and say hi to a pretty girl, but that’s just part of you. Things are never just nice and easy, and I love that. Things are always rough, and things always need to be right. Not always good, or beautiful, but right.
PS: Also, I love you because, like me, that veggie-wearing bloke was your Doctor.
