Tried to see where I fit. PS – I made this the other day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFFFarMqWpc
I suspect I should be “Dead Inside” except never did Big Finish, no cosplay (avoided it since seeing Whovians in the 80s) so not Dead Inside.
Nardie maybe except I rarely shitpost yet I enjoy looking at them – I was a solitary Doctor Who fan for too many years to fully engage in “community”, whether real or ironic.
I could’ve been Transcendent but that’s PRECISELY why I’m not. NOW i know why I was always so damn proud when I’d say “I love Doctor Who but I’m NOT going to call myself a Whovian”.

Finally my reasoning has justification.
I’ve been confronting the vocal ones when I come across them in groups sometimes. They’ll pop in the comment sections, voicing their concerns. But when challenged a little and engaged human-to-human instead of retort-to-retort, most are actually looking forward to how it will go, they just don’t understand how it’s possible or worry about a political takeover of some kind. But they look forward to it as well.
