Normally I don’t enjoy doing harsh confessions like this, a lot of people actually love Rory, but my god, he gives me rage.
Oh, of course. Of course. Of course deciding to leave familiarity behind to travel with a strange man for his fiancée’s emotional needs and wants was emotional weakness. Or did you miss the fact that when I offered him and Amy an out, he agreed to stay? I doubt that was for himself- not back then.
Or maybe you miss the fact that he, definitely foolishly, trusted me, despite numerous occasions of being put in mortal peril because of my foolhardy mistakes. Or maybe you missed the fact that that trust ended up with him dying for me when he had absolutely no reason to. Perhaps you missed that.
It was clearly an emotional weakness to decide to stay behind to guard the Pandorica for near-on 2000 years; I’m sure that didn’t require an ounce of emotional fortitude. After all, living for 1,894 years? Yeah, I’m positive lots of people do well with a couple of centuries under their belts, let alone millennia. I’m obvious proof of that. It’s clear he never had to steel himself to do things that completely went against his moral code as a nurse and as a human once in those years.
And how dare he punch me for suggesting that his fiancée was unimportant. How dare he be bold enough to bring me down a peg or two from my Jupiter-inflated ego. How dare he be human and react in anger, or sadness, or joy, or sympathy, or annoyance.
How dare you for implying that everything that makes Rory exceptionally human makes him weak, when it’s actually his greatest asset, and his greatest strength.
