    I don't have a beta reader; sorry

    I claim no ownership of this milieu, its characters and settings, and I am certainly making no profit writing fanfiction for free.

    Summary

    “Hello…” The Doctor smiled at the Master, and there was something in this mad wide grin that he had never seen before. “Wonderful day. Not for you, perhaps. I suppose you’re in need of a lift?”

    AU in which the Master joins the Doctor on the quest for the Key to Time instead of Romana. During their mission, they rekindle the very old flame between them - all while solving various questions concerning the ancient dilemmas of their relationship, the Master’s lack of regenerations and the exact nature of the threat the Key is meant to prevent.

    Summary

    The Doctor is delighted to find the Master constructing a trap that's as lovingly hand-crafted as it is devious.
    He's far less delighted to find out that it isn't for him.

    (The Master has a new nemesis - the Doctor takes this rather poorly)

    Summary

    The whumptober 2022 prompts applied to the UNIT family (and one or two extras from other eras). Most of them include the Brigadier. They are unconnected oneshots of varying length and whumpiness. Specific trigger warnings will be with the prompt at the start of each chapter.

    Summary

    A series of bonus scenes regarding the Master and Beatrice that I couldn't fit into the main series. They take place at various points along the timeline of the three main books. You do need to have read the Starcrossed Series to get this. I am also currently taking requests for potential scenes. I don't own Doctor Who or any of its characters and don't get any monetary reward.

    Summary

    The Vault gains a new occupant, and the Doctor starts to worry that collecting Masters is becoming something of a habit. Ultimately, the only thing more difficult than keeping one Master imprisoned is keeping two.

    (Or three)

    Summary

    Season 19, Story 1
    When alternate history enthusiast James is plucked from his proper time and place by Q to assist his forum friend Josh in a Star Trek: The Next Generation self-insert, he finds himself instead thrown into a self-insert of his own. To his great distress, he is the new Fifth Doctor, superseding the canon one! Struggling with three squabbling companions, the fact he must act out the Watcher's offscreen actions from Logopolis with no guidance, and dealing with the Master destabilizing his mind, James has his work cut out for him.

    Or, in short, the self-insert I swore I'd never write but somehow ended up doing anyway. Not needless fanwank. This will be akin to proper Doctor Who, just with some twists.

    Summary

    It was relieving to find the Master healthy and un-emaciated again. It wasn’t half as relieving to find him on the way out of his mind and sporting inch-long fangs.

    The Doctor meets the Master, but not the one he'd expect.

    Summary

    Sunburnt, sore, and sick of the Master's interference, the Doctor's bad mood is worsened when the beach's improbably poor customer service brings him face-to-face with his contemporary bearded menace.

    (Missing scene from Summertime Spite, but can be read as a stand alone fic)

    Summary

    “Well, well, well,” the Master purred, his eyes glinting with primal hunger as he stared at the miniaturized Doctor in the bowl below him. “Aren’t you a delicious little morsel, my dear Doctor?”

    The Doctor’s lips puckered pitifully. “You’re evil!” he shouted with his usual obnoxious self-righteous fervor. “Mad! Tyrannical! You must see reason, Master, this won’t fix things.”

    The Master rolled his eyes. “You bore me, Doctor. Can’t you come up with something a bit more entertaining than your usual moral superiority complex? So far, I only want to eat you more, if only to make you shut up.”

    The Doctor treaded water (treaded milk, actually?) and desperately tried to grab for the floating corn flakes and chocolate chips that surrounded him like he was Jack and Rose in the final third of the movie Titanic. Due to his clumsiness, he only managed to slip off the side of a soggy piece of cereal and submerge himself fully in the plant based white liquid before his head rose once again above the chalk-colored sea and sputtered for air. The Master watched this spectacle and chuckled: hehehehehe.

    Summary

    They dance across the galaxy in their own approximation of love.

    Romance tastes like ashes. It becomes the thin bones with which the Doctor uses to pick stars out of his teeth, to roll nebulas behind the worrying gap in his molars.

    It's not a dance unless someone is winning. It's not a fight unless someone is leading. It doesn't feel like love until he can taste bile stinging the back of his throat and tears in his eyes and wasted time in his heart.

     

    The Doctor has few occasions to think about his relationship with the Master.

    (The Master has many occasions to regret his relationship with the Doctor.)

    Summary

    He had promised Tegan and Turlough a seaside outing that was fun, safe, and alien-free, so that's exactly what they were going to get. And no amount of any Master's meddling would persuade him otherwise.

    It's only a pity he can't stand beaches. Or pears.

    Summary

    “Your scarf,” the Master croaked in that unique tone of a man who can’t believe a single word he’s hearing, “can bring me back to life.”

    Fortunately for everyone, the Tenth Doctor has guilt and desperation in spades.
