my name is antonella. my friends call me nella. I have a best friend Christina (aka my "twin). She's always there for me for my stupid problems and im always there for her. I have a dog names coco. I dance and i love it. If people ever need me im here for them :)
This part always gets to me because you can see it in the Doctor’s eyes, there is a part of him that is trying to convince himself. He knows Rose is alive but she just feels so dead, she’s not with him and he will never be able to see her again. In some ways it is worse than death and the Doctor needs to convince himself that his Rose is still alive, safe and sound in an alternate dimension.
Not only that, but with so alive he’s also trying to convince himself that Rose is going to find some kind of happiness in Pete’s universe, that she’s going to move on with her life and be a world-saving BAMF and find love again. That her life isn’t over just because they’ve been separated. And he’s trying to convince himself that his own life isn’t over, either.
