None of this is because you want it. You had what you wanted, before that damnable Red Arremer
swooped down to take her. Your armor sitting there, mere feet away, crumbled in a post-coital heap as she was stolen. Now you have no choice but this endless forward march. No second thoughts or hesitations, compelled by lust or duty not to avert your eyes, you march on, up these horrific towers, pushing desperately for an unnecessary redemption.
Everybody laments how Colin Baker
was put in a truly awful position by Doctor Who
. There is no disputing that. However, Nicola Bryant suffered just as much. She spent her time on the show being objectified and ogled and taken advantage of. Periís primary function on the show was to serve as eye candy that could be put in peril...Indeed, the fact that Peri is routinely treated as nothing but a sex object is even treated as a joke here. Discussing an old dying warlord, she notes, 'Beams that kill werenít the only thing he had on his mind. Dirty old warlord. Glad we left that place when we did.
' She is so used to the objectification that she seems visibly relieved
when Sil refers to her as the Doctorís 'revoltingly ugly assistant.
' At least she doesnít have to worry about Sil, then.

Dawn's in trouble. Must be Tuesday.

Why is she always the one getting kidnapped? I'm

But still, don't you think it's romantic? I mean, to have a guy who's always there for you? Snake:
If he was smart, he'd tell her to stop getting kidnapped. Mei Ling:
...You don't get a lot of dates, do you, Snake?
Help! I'm being, like, stolen or something!
William, tell me somethin'. Have you come because you need my help to save a certain distressin' damsel—or rather, damsel in distress?—Either one.

: (struggling in Nessus' grip)
"I'm a damsel... I'm in distress... I can handle this! Have a nice day!"
Oh dear... Here we go again... I can't believe I'm kidnapped again. Mario and Toadsworth must be worried sick. Again.
Snow: Wait, Belle, Zelena never froze you when she was crazy monologuing and creepily feeling my baby bump. Why didnít you do anything to stop her? Everyone else tried.
Everyone else got frozen or turned into a flying monkey. Every time I go up against the villains, I get locked up, knocked unconscious or shot. At this point, Iím just trying to stay alive.
