SuperWho AU: The Year That Never Was | Sam & Martha
Sam is skeptical of the legends of Martha Jones. In his experience, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. And even if she can defeat the Master, everyone Sam cares about is dead, so what good does that do him? He’s got no cause, no reason to care if the planet keeps turning or not. But once he meets Martha in person, Sam begins to wonder if maybe there is a reason to keep fighting.

tv meme: 09 Characters you love:
Martha Jones is so underappreciated by fandom. I love her sfm. She’s brilliant. She’s clever, brave, loyal and completely 100% awesome from day one. But her story is about how she doesn’t see that in herself. She’s the unappreciated peacekeeper in her family, running interference between her parents. She gets this crush on the Doctor and is SO long suffering (much like it seems like she is with regards to her family) while the Doctor is oblivious to her. I honestly don’t think that RTD set the audience up to dislike Martha. I think that he set Martha up as a character to be sympathized with. My reading is that the audience is supposed to be on Martha’s side. That’s why the camera lingers on her and we get her sad looks and long suffering sighs. We’re SUPPOSED to feel bad for her and think that the Doctor is being an insensitive jerk. I don’t think that the script wants the audience to be nodding along with the Doctor. The Doctor (especially as written by RTD) CAN be wrong. Just look at “Waters of Mars”!
The Doctor loved Rose and she was taken away from him against his will and thus he kind of idealizes her and puts her up on this pedestal and is blinded to how his actions and words are affecting Martha. The text acknowledges that the Doctor was in the wrong even before “Let’s Kill Hitler” when her image makes him feel guilty. He looks properly chastised when Martha tells him off in “The Last of the Time Lords” and then in “Partners in Crime” the Doctor says, “The last time, with Martha, like I said it… it got complicated. And that was all my fault,” which seems to be the Doctor acknowledging his fault.
In “The Last of the Time Lords”, we get the pay off for Martha’s suffering throughout series 3. Martha realizes just how awesome she is (something the audiences should have seen from her introduction). When the Master tries to compare her unfavorably to Rose, Martha LAUGHS IN HIS FACE. Evil Time Lord? Martha Jones doesn’t give a fuck. She will lol at you. And then she gives her speech to the Doctor. She tells him that she is getting out. She’s realized that she’s NOT second best. Martha Jones is pretty fucking awesome, and now she realizes that and sees that staying with the Doctor is not a good situation for her, so she takes the initiative and gets out. So again, while the Doctor and her crush on him and her experiences with him are the catalyst, her story is definitely about herself and realizing her own awesomeness and doesn’t exist to serve the Doctor. The Doctor’s series 3 story (which is about him being more disconnected from people due to his grieving over Rose) definitely intersects with Martha’s story, but in the end Martha has a story and personality all her own. She takes that new found confidence and faith in herself to first be a part of UNIT and later goes on to be a free lance alien fighter
Everything. Just. Martha. Oh. My. Fucking. Lord. I. Love. You. (via angsturbatecate)
Remember when Martha Jones faced Judoon so the Doctor could get a clean getaway to save the hospital and she barely got a thanks. Remember when she was still a young woman in medical school who did what she had to.
Remember when Martha Jones decided to travel with the Doctor to save the world.
Remember when Martha Jones thought on her feet and ingeniously used a Harry Potter spell to thwart the ‘witches’.
Remember when they went to Manhattan and she helped keep the peace when the Doctor left her to talk to Daleks.
Remember when she saved the Doctor despite her mother’s protest during Lazarus experiment.
Remember when Martha Jones went into a time when her race would render her to be treated someone less than a human and saved the world and the Doctor without a protest. And all she got was a thanks.
Remember when Martha Jones became a legend and walked war ravaged earth as her family was enslaved by the Master but she did it to save the world. Remember when she refused to call herself a legend because that’s who Martha is.
Remember when she walked away from the Doctor because she recognized how unhealthy the situation with the Doctor was and had the strength to walk away.
Remember how the Doctor kept on belittling her and compared her to Rose. Remember when the fandom did that. Remember when apparently unrequited love makes a character less than stellar especially when it’s a WOC.
And let’s remember- Martha Jones is better than good. She’s the best. And that the Doctor doesn’t need to be the one to validate this because it’s in every episodes she appears.
