I actually don’t get a single “confused about not being straight” vibe from Yaz.
Like I know we give her a hard time for pining over a hologram for three years and still somehow thinking it’s a Normal Platonic Friendship Thing to do, but you gotta remember
She was picked up by an alien with a time machine
who showed her everything she could dream of and
whom she has been idolising ever since.
Like of course the feelings she felt could be mistaken for adoration. Of course she didn’t realise she was in love. There is no manual for how to feel in a situation like that, and lord knows how she feels about the Doctor won’t be comparable to anything she’s felt before.
So the dawning realisation of her emotions after finding the Doctor again after the flux and 1901 is laced with panic, but I don’t think that’s because she’s a woman. To Yaz, the Doctor is, in decending order:
Yaz’ best friend and sort of her entire life, a life which she loves
a few shades shy of being a friggin deity
then she a woman
So there’s a whole lot to panic about and I don’t think Yaz has space left in her brain to even contemplate the ‘woman’ part.
with next ep having pirates in, im hoping yaz and the doc get into an argument about the doc always running off and both pick up swords and things get intense but yaz manages to pin the doc against something and lift her chin with her sword and whisper something like "i wanted more of the universe... but it keeps leaving me... you keep leaving" then dan in the background shouting "just kiss already!"
i KNOW that yaz canonically was in love with the doctor in s12 and possibly before that but the idea of john bishop(big lgbt ally) arriving on set, forming a thasmin alliance with mandip, and bullying the writers
