yyyyyyyyyyyyyeeessssSSSSS ugh i hate it when peeps act as if the doctor is the only one jack is ridic in love with like hi hello he’s got it bad for both of them and it’s hilar bc they will only ever have it bad for each other poor jack
Melissa I have thoughts.
To me, it’s like… the most obvious thing in the world that Jack loves Rose more than he loves the Doctor. After all, for hundreds of years, Jack’s assumed the best of her and the worst of him, and so she’s this pure thing in his shitty life—she’s the one who is “worth fighting for.”
Not the Doctor—although the Doctor helped him become a better man. It’s Rose he watches over while he waits for the Doctor.
Like the Doctor, Rose is the one who keeps him fighting. He’s still so fucking pissed at the Doctor to truly forgive him until they straighten their shit out in Utopia, and that doesn’t mean he doesn’t love the Doctor so much even while hating him, but until he learns about the Bad Wolf, it’s Rose who is the innocent party to him.
And I think that’s partly why he doesn’t hold a grudge against her when he sees her again—because he’s not even so fucking angry about being immortal, it’s that this cowardly man who made him less of a coward couldn’t even say goodbye.
