The 9th and His Daemon by LJ-Todd The 9th and His Daemon by LJ-Todd
The first of a series of Doctor Who / Torchwood daemon images. (A fanfic is planned but as of yet unwritten.)

So here's a blurb about the 9th Doctor and his Albino Ferret daemon, Kairos:

"You like her."

He glanced at Kairos where she was curled on the control panel of the TARDIS, her pale red eyes like rubies against her snowy fur. "What?"

"Rose, you dunderhead," Kairos said as she looked to where Rose was standing, talking to that foolish boy Adam. "You like her and you're jealous that she wanted to bring Adam with us."

He frowned and shook his head, reaching out to gently flick her ear, feeling the sting in his own. "You're the one who's being the dunderhead, Kai," he said as he began fiddling with the dials again. "Like a human. Honestly. I might as well go developing feelings for a chimpanzee. The outcome would be about the same. Better probably."

Kairos sighed as she climbed up his arm to drape herself around his neck, nuzzling his jaw affectionately. "You can lie to her, and to yourself if you want," she retorted as the TARDIS lurched a bit. "But you can't lie to me."

His frown deepened but he didn't argue with her. She was his heart and soul after all.


Just a little note, as the Doctor changes with each regeneration I believe his daemon would change (so 10 and 11 will have different animals but it's still the same daemon).

Kairos is an Ancient Greek word meaning "time".

I imagined his daemon like a Glaucous Gull, but a ferret works also quite well. And I had the idea that the doctors indeed have different kind of daemons, but that they change only to some similar animal after a regeration - for example to a black-headed gull for ten.

I went with the ferret because, if they're mistreated, they can become quite snappy but otherwise are loving and become very attached to the people around them and the 9th Doctor was considered a bit of a grump but it was obvious he became very attached to Rose, and Jack, and I felt the ferret best complimented the Doctor at this point in his life.

And I rather like the idea of the Doctor's daemon being a similar animal after the regeneration, it has a nice and believable feel to it.

FERRET! You gave him a ferret for his Daemon!
I bloody love you.
'Cough', sorry, I adore ferrets and own quite a number of them, so whenever I see a ferret in any type of fanart (or art in general) I tend to freak out and get overly happy about it!
Love it!
:D

I love this daemon stuff you are doing, though sorry but I think the 9th and Rose where not in love into he became the 10th but that's just me.

I'm glad you like it :D I like to think that the Doctor's feelings started when he was the 9th, he just didn't display it beyond friendship and once he regenerated to the 10th, with a slightly more wacky/open personality and younger appearance it became more acceptable to him to let his emotions show (to some degree at least because he himself never told Rose he loved her it was the Meta-Crisis Doctor who did)

thanks, yeah I guess that it likes that only friendship into romance, or at least their didn't realize those feelings into the very end.

I'm surprised at how well I like the idea of the 9th's daemon being a ferrett. Can't wait to read the fic :D

It seemed like a perfect fit to me, lol. The fic may or may not be coming in the near future. I have a few others that need finishing first.
