Doctor Who Drabble: Why Him?

Title: Why Him?
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Mickey Smith, Rose Tyler, Ninth Doctor.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 197: Green Day, using Why Do You Want Him at dw100.
Spoilers: Season One.
Summary: Mickey can’t offer Rose the things the Doctor can.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

Mickey had never thought of himself as the jealous type, not until he’d come along. The Doctor. All he’d needed to do was grin that cheesy grin and Rose had gone with him, not so much as a kiss goodbye for her boyfriend. Because Mickey was that, wasn’t he? He’d thought so, but now he had his doubts.

He wanted to ask Rose, ‘Why do you want him and not me? What does he have that I don’t?’ but he already knew the answer. The Doctor was Rose’s way out of her dead-end life. Mickey could never give her that.

The End


Great drabble
Thank you!

Poor Mickey but no one can compare with the Doctor.
Sad but true. He could have offered Rose a good life, but she was too starstruck to see what she had.

Thank you!

Mickey had better character development than Rose did too.
He did, he really came into his own and matured while he was in the alternate earth.

Unlike someone else.*cough Rose*

Yeah, Rose Tyler, perpetual teen.
Defender of the Earth?

At least there was no spinoff of that.

I'd rather one of Mickey in cartoon form for the kiddies.*possibly overthinking this*

I'd watch a Mickey spin-off. He'd make a good defender, but I like sticking him in the Torchwood team. He's a good fit.

Oh yeah. We never got to see him in Torchwood! That could of been interesting.:)

I think Martha was easier to place because of her connections with UNIT. I liked the part where Martha and Jack talked about the Doctor.

I think Jack pointed upwards in regards to the Doctor.:D
Yeah, I liked Martha's time on Torchwood. She and Ianto got along well =)

I think Martha can get along with almost anyone. But I see your point. There was a hint of jealousy from Gwen at first over Jack.
More than a hint, I'd say, but then I loathe Gwen. I don't think she and Martha would get along. Martha would find her annoying. She's younger than Gwen but far more mature.

Gwen was very flawed. It took her far too long to get over Jack. I guess RTD likes to make characters like her because they create more conflict.*shrugs*
