    Summary

    Alison Cheney and her partner Brad Doucette have a problem, which is, as Brad puts it, "Help -- the Master is literally a cat!" The three of them are waiting in orbit around Prrraurrr while the Doctor concludes a mediation. Prrraurrr is home to a fast-acting virus that transforms people into cats, so, if Alison and Brad stay off the planet's surface, they should be safe, right? And the Magister [Alison's name for him] is a robot, so he can't catch a virus, right?

    Well...uh...apparently not. Somehow he comes down with the virus anyway. So now Alison and Brad have to deal with a VERY ENTHUSIASTIC robotic cat with opposable thumbs and a Doctor who didn't think to leave them any information about how to handle this sort of situation. Fortunately Lee Chang, a former companion of the Doctor's and sufferer of their well-meaning cluelessness, provides advice. Chin Lee, who has also had her own adventures with Time Lords, makes an appearance at the end.

    Summary

    Alison Cheney, a Black British woman in her late 20s, joined the Doctor on their TARDIS, along with their robotic "inevitable spouse" [whose name she's not saying ever, so she's calling him the Magister], to escape the endless bullshit power plays on Earth. Sure, she negotiated a companion contract with the Doctor and the Magister, and now they're getting along rather well, but not all aliens know how to respect fellow people. Unfortunately, bullshit is apparently a universal phenomenon, as she discovers when she's mind-fucked not once, but twice, by aliens in her first month with her two new companions.

    Now Alison, who has been trained up from her earliest days to be a fighter, feels overwhelmed and out of her depth, especially since that recent attack by a psychic vampire. The Doctor rescued her and the Magister, but there's something significant that they're concealing. Gathering what remains of her toughness and curiosity, Alison goes on a quest for answers. She makes friends with the robot, learns more about his odd relationship with the Doctor, and wishes only that someone might hold her fast and keep her safe.

    Summary

    Alison Cheney joined the Doctor aboard the TARDIS because she wanted to explore history and see new worlds. Her recent mind invasion by both the Shalka and a stone vampire has, however, taken its toll. She has been plagued by headaches, dizzy spells, and flashbacks. Once a barmaid skilled in dealing with all sorts of disruptive weirdos, she now avoids unpredictability and adventure by staying inside the ship.

    A mission from the Time Lord Council to the planet Terripluvium challenges Alison's sense of safety. The Doctor must mediate between the Agricole and the Schuaschen, a species bred by the Agricole, who are now fighting for their independence. But the Doctor, incapacitated by allergies, lies unconscious in the Zero Room, recovering.

    Alison has no interest in diplomacy, but her impulsive kindness to a Schuaschen puts her at the center of the conflict. Now completely out of her depth, she has only one person who can help her: the Doctor's robot, a sadistic master of mental manipulation, whom she cannot bring herself to address by name.

    Summary

    Alison finds out why the Doctor's inevitable spouse, whom she calls the Magister, always wears gloves. Emily Dickinson's pain fetish, the personification of entropy, consensual housekeeping, eyebrow construction, and the rake handle in his arm also come up. You know -- just your everyday, run-of-the-mill chat between a human being and an evil alien super-powered robot.

    Summary

    saved this snippet but forgot to note whose idea it was (6_6)
    if you remember, please let me know!
    ---------------------------------------------------

    "Really, my dear Doctor... were they all out of normal cats? Or were you just naturally drawn to the one with the most brain abnormalities?"
    “Alison chose it. But it's a perfectly good animal, for a cat!”
    She didn't tell either of them that she'd chosen that particular melancholy creature because it reminded her of the Doctor.
