Extroverted Intuition (Ne): The
Doctor’s first approach to any new experience is excitement at its greater
potential. He rarely takes objects for what they seem to be, but instead looks
past them to their conceptual worth. He’s very quick to form accurate
suspicions and discern others’ motives, and can even predict events in the
short term (he realizes people are breathing in stone dust, which is converting
them into a new kind of creature; he warns a woman that she is no longer necessary, a second
before her employers kill her as “the only witness”; he swiftly figures out
the robots are waiting for Madam Pompadour to get “the right age” to
harvest her organs, etc). He’ll often assert a statement and contradict it a
moment later, indicating his ability to think in different directions at once (“No,
it’s safe… well, maybe not safe…
yeah, I think I’ll do a scan, in case there’s something dangerous out there…”).
Introverted Feeling (Fi): He
can be oblivious to other people’s feelings, when absorbed in his own –
so much so that his companions often have to tell him he’s being rude to get
him to stop (usually he’s so excited about an idea, he doesn’t quit theorizing
it in time to avoid making it an insult). His preoccupation with losing Rose
makes him clueless about Martha’s gigantic crush on him. It’s a relief
for him to partner up with Donna, because she doesn’t demand he open up
emotionally. When asked about his former partners, the Doctor admits they’re “gone…
but fine,” without expanding on his feelings about it. He broods. Intensely. He also tends to see the
world in strong ethical terms, defined by right and wrong; right is whatever he
decides, and he can be merciless and without pity in punishing anyone who
violates his stance on humane behavior.
Extroverted Thinking (Te): The
Doctor can shut down and go into a Ne/Te loop, whenever he has to make a tough
decision; Donna berates him for intending to let everyone in Pompeii die,
because the Doctor argues “it’s a fixed point in time” – it must happen. He chooses to accept his role as the catalyst for
making it happen, because “it’s Pompeii or the planet… that’s all I needed to
know.” The Doctor doesn’t like it when others violate the “code of the universe”
(disobey galactic rules) and often reacts with harsh punishment (imprisoning
aliens in mirrors, destroying the spider’s children, etc). Donna says, upon
their first meeting, that he “need[s] a companion, to hold [him] back
sometimes.” Sometimes, if he lacks the tools to fix a problem, he thinks they’re doomed.
Introverted Sensing (Si): Ten
is running away from his past. He prefers not to think about, or dwell in it,
too much, as it brings out his sadness over losing former companions, including
Rose. When reunited with Sarah Jane Smith, the Doctor happily revisits their
former connection, and even builds her a new K9 as a parting gift, making sure
to give it all the memories of the previous model.
Note: When I started the blog a few years ago, he was one of
my first typings, and I ran with the popular consensus that the Doctor is “an NTP.” I was intellectually lazy in forming my argument. Sometimes
people argue he’s ENFP because he’s “so emotional,” but I don’t like that approach. It’s stereotyping. It’s his ethics, not how emotional he is (anyone can have feelings) that make him ENFP. He rarely makes purely
emotional decisions; he has a strong Te, and loops into it a lot.
(I think my favorite thing about this is that the Doctor and Caecilius are REALLY two Gallifreyans Scottish guys –
one with extra Italian flavoring obvs – using English accents while speaking “Latin” that is “Celtic” that is actually Wenglish.)
My first attempt at illustrating @kelkat9‘s brilliant fic “Under the Sea” somehow got crossed with batistaangel’s equally brilliant fic, “Chasing the Starlight” and this was the result. Also the words “it was late and I was bored may have factored in somewhere…
Who belongs to the bbc, the Little Mermaid belongs to disney, Merman Maker (the doll maker I used to make this pic) belongs to the fantastic AzaleasDolls.com, “Chasing the Starlight” belongs to the lovely batistaangel over at fanfiction.net, and “Under the Sea” belongs to the wonderful @kelkat9. Enjoy!
I’m back to watching again (got caught up with a few other things so now I’m picking up my Who binge as well as continuing my SPN binge and dear lord, it is SO NICE to watch shows that aren’t full of SHIT in the writing department – looking at YOU OUAT, but I digress … . ) after a break to catch up on stuff
Just finished the second series with 10 – and I – kinda LIKED Martha and was sad to see her go. Was this an unpopular opinion?
Also not sold on Donna Noble – although I’m halfway through the one where she returns and she’s much less grating than her first appearance. I just HATED the actress on The Office but I’m trying to keep an open mind.
This is the last series for 10, isn’t it? :( :( :(
Will I like the other guys? I really REALLY like Ten. (Then again I adored nine but 10 won me over even more.)
An earlier attempt at doing a scene from @kelkat9‘s brilliant fic “Under the Sea” managed to get accidently get crossed with an idea for illustrating a scene from her “Dark Doctor” series, blended with the results of trying to brainstorm ideas for my own future fics while running a 102.1 degree(F) fever to bring you,”Another Family Portrait; Ruined”.
Who belongs to the bbc, Rose to RTD, the Little Mermaid belongs to disney, Mermaid Scene Maker (the dollmaker I used to create this pic) belongs to the talented AzaleasDolls.com, “Under the Sea” and the “Dark Doctor” series belongs to the lovely @kelkat9, and my Time Lady OC Hope (pictured center) belongs to me. Enjoy!
Transformation scene (and gift for) from the brilliant @kelkat9‘s fic “Under the Sea”. It took me several tries to get it just right; the previous attempts (and spin offs) should be up momentarily.
Credit for Who goes to the BBC, Rose belongs to RTD, The Little Mermaid belongs to Disney, Splash belongs to Fox, this fantastic Mermaid Scene Maker dollmaker I used to create this pic belongs to the lovely AzaleasDolls.com, and the fic “Under the Sea” belongs of course, to the wonderful @kelkat9. Enjoy!
