Rare Ships Month: Second Doctor/Jamie

So, why do I think Two/Jamie is the OTP-est OTP of any OTP ever in the history of the Who-verse?



I rest my case.

What? You're not yet convinced? You need more evidence?



Ok, first of all, Jamie McCrimmon was the Doctor's longest serving (on-screen) companion. There had to be a reason Two kept him on the TARDIS all that time, and I don't think it was just because Jamie looks so fetching in a kilt (though I'm sure that played a part). Further, they banter like an old married couple in practically every serial. I am pretty well certain that all one needs to do is watch a single Second Doctor episode (doesn't even matter which one, take your pick) and the fact that the Doctor and Jamie are madly in love is impossible to deny. They can not keep their hands off each other! It's ridiculous. Check THIS out:

And those are faaaaaaaaaaar from isolated incidents. I mean just LOOK at them! All the clinging! And the HAND-HOLDING!!! IT MAKES ME SQUEE IN CAPSLOCK!!!!

Ahem.

GRATUITOUS PICSPAM TIME























But you want to see them in action, you say? Your wish is my command. :-)

LET'S GO TO THE VIDEOTAPE

Firstly, my most favorite Two/Jamie moment EVER. It's from the serial The Invasion and it fills me with so much joy that I don't even know what to do with myself. They are SO ADORABLY IN LOVE!!!



And now, a couple of brilliant fanvids from the patron saint of Two/Jamie, van:





But honestly, you don't need to take my word for all this. Many other brilliant minds have recognized the undying love that the Second Doctor and Jamie have for each other. Let's take a look at what some of THEM have to say on the topic.

And finally, a post about the awesomeness of the Second Doctor in general but containing an absolute truth with respect to Two/Jamie. From some_stars

The Second Doctor: MADE OF AWESOME, and Also Burnination

ETA: I can't believe I didn't think to link to Part 2 of nentari's insanely fabulous Jamie entry for companion love month at loves_them_all. She does a brilliant job of pointing out all of the things that make Jamie so awesome, and make Two/Jamie so delightful together. You can view it HERE.

Now, last but most definitely not least, a collection of some fantastic Two/Jamie stories. Sadly, there isn't much available, but these are all excellent. Why, oh why, aren't more people writing this stuff?!

SLASH FIC FOR THE WIN!

And there you have it. The epic love affair of a renegade Time Lord and the son of a piper. It's a truly beautiful thing. :-)
