This is apropos of absolutely nothing. For whatever reason, after seeing everyone posting that ten-year meme all over Facebook (thus providing Facebook with plenty of helpful data to mine), I did my own version, not for me but for Rose. However, as she is a time traveller, I was able to apply the meme not to 2009 Rose and 2019 Rose but to 2019 Rose and 2029 Rose. Thus this little panel was born:

Monday, November 25, 2019
Panel 1: In Iz's bedroom, Iz and an injured future Rose kneel on the floor. Future Rose is sagging.

Future Rose: I...

Panel 2: Future Rose passes out in Iz's arms. Iz begins to cry.

Iz: Rose. Rose, wake up. Please don't...please...

Panel 3: The tears are streaming down Iz's face.

Iz: I'm sorry. I'm sorry for whatever I do. I don't know what it is! I would never hurt you, Rose.

Panel 4: Iz hugs future Rose and continues to cry.

Iz: Except I will.

Iz: I hate the future.

Iz: This is just so you know.

Alt-Text: So do I, Iz. So do I.

Extra Panel: 10 Year Meme

In this panel, two Roses stand facing each other with their white canes crossing in the middle. The Rose on the left is labelled "2019." She is our familiar present-day Rose. The Rose on the right is labelled "2029." She is older and slightly heavier, with short hair.

2029 Rose: Why do you wear your hair like that?

2019 Rose: Why don't you?
