Welp, I sent this off to be beta'd and it has been turned into something actually worthwhile, so I am de-anoning with this!

Title: Self-Sabotage
Author: [livejournal.com profile] _rubber_chicken
Word Count: 10,308 in total
Beta: [info]dragonofmemory
Rating: PG-13 for swearing
Characters/Pairings: (Academy Era) Theta/Koschei
Summary:  This is a revised, much-improved response to this prompt: Theta/Koschei. The two are best friends, then Koschei gets jealous after (mistakenly) assuming that Theta has a girlfriend. Because the universe /needs/ more Academy fic. Or it'll like, implode or something.
Notes: I cannot thank Mem enough for beta-ing this for me. It went through....four? five? revisions at the very least. Among other things, she fixed my Theta characterizations, fixed my imagery where it failed, and drastically improved my Koschei motivations. And, inadvertently, reminded me that in the original prompt I had completely forgotten an ENTIRE SECTION. This monster has grown about 2,500 words. It's practically a new response by this point.

Part I
Part II

Hello! Once again, I offer a plea not to leave Mem all alone in the chat for the watchalong this week! It's the last First Doctor serial we'll be watching as a com (or by myself), since The Tenth Planet is a recon. I'll be starting in a few minutes, so please come and join me!

Title: First Steps
Pairing: Gen. Snail, Flabbaduckarusa and Tagalong. Or, in adult-speak: the Doctor, Braxiatel, and the Master.
Length: 21,925
Summary: There's being born, and then there's being born into a world with no adults, no clothes, no food and a terrifying alien Thing upstairs. When their Looms birth them straight into the middle of an emergency, can Our Heroes muddle through?
Warnings: Miscarriage/infant death and severe burns and dehydration in Chapter Three.
Author on LJ (or Teaspoon, or Prydonian): charamei on Dreamwidth, Charamei on AO3
Why this must be read:

This is kid!fic of the highest order. I love so many things about this: the Doctor's first words; Braxiatel getting stuck with a ridiculous name; the Doctor's immediate fondness for screwdrivers; the ridiculous picture the adult Time Lords make sunk into the mud; the epilogue! I love the last line so much. So much of this fic makes me grin until my face hurts, but it's not without angst, as well. And adventures!

The story takes bits of Lungbarrow and other canon, and uses them in a creative and interesting way.  Probably my favorite use of Looms in fanfic, ever. In fact, this fic as a whole seems very creative and fresh to me.

The Doctor, Brax, and the Master possess the essential character traits that make them themselves, but they are also very much young children. Charamei achieves just the right balance of these things, so that they are in character, but also believable as just-loomed Time Tots. I really hope you give this story a read!

Title: Gallifreyan History 101
Pairing: Gen? (I'm honestly not sure.)
Length: 4:27
Warnings: Silliness.
Musical Artist and Cosplayers: Chameleon Circuit (link to DFTBA and to Itunes) and TARDISparty

Why this must be seen:

This is so much fun! It's a music video done for another Chameleon Circuit song, this time off their first album. The song itself isn't about the Doctor and the Master; I've included this for the video. The video was made by a couple of cosplayers, playing the Fifth Doctor and Ainley!Master. The song provides the setting (a lecture about Gallifreyan history to an Academy class). The video consists of the Doctor and the Master being the sort of students a professor might have nightmares about. There are jellybabies, paper ball throwing fights, note passing, falling asleep on each other, and hat theft!

Title: The Grandparent Trap
Pairing: One/The Master
Length: 5,000
Summary: Early into her stay on Dalek war-torn Earth, Susan meets a girl who looks exactly like her.
Rating/Warnings: PG.
Author on LJ (or Teaspoon, or Prydonian): [livejournal.com profile] aralias, aralias on Prydonian, aralias on AO3
Why this must be read:

When I was a kid, I adored the 1961 movie, The Parent Trap. My mother had taped it for me on the VCR, and watched that tape over and over. I probably could have recited bits of it from memory. Taking that into consideration, it isn't surprising I love this fic. It combines two beloved things, and it does so very well. Somehow, it manages not to be the utter crackfic that it could have been. In fact, aralias' writing is superb.

I love all the distinct little differences in Susan and Sharon's personalities due to the different environments they were raised in and their different grandfather figures, and the way they still have so much in common. I enjoyed the characterization and dialogue of the First Doctor, who is irascible, disarming, and endearing. The use of references to the movie were clever and creative. This is a really fun read.

Title: The Master Song (Doctor Who Rap)
Pairing: Gen.
Length: 2:37
Warnings: This song may get stuck in your head.
Author on LJ (or Teaspoon, or Prydonian): Horrible Fiction on YouTube
Why this must be seen:

Because it's silly, fun, and catchy. It makes me giggle whenever I watch it. This is sort of a combination of music and cosplay. Horrible Fiction wrote and recorded the song, and then created the youtube music video for it. The song itself is about Simm!Master, and it references both Series 3 and End of Time.

Hey, all. It's that time again, and no one else has posted about it. Come join me in the chat for The Gunfighters. I guess I'll start in about ten minutes or so. Hopefully someone will drop by so that Mem won't be by her lonesome.

This Sunday at 8 PM BST, we will be watching The Ark. This episode features the first Doctor, Steven Taylor and Dodo Chaplet - oh, what's that? Who's Dodo, you say, and where did Vicki go? WELL. It is my unfortunate duty to inform you that all five of the opening stories of series 3 (no, not the one with crazy Simm!Master and Martha, that was series 29) have been subjected to eternal burnination barring some unchecked basements in Hong Kong. In memory of those those lost to the BBC’s 70s tape-saving policy, let us have a short (and extremely uneven, sorry, I’m new at this) recap.

Here lie Galaxy Four, Mission to the Unknown, The Myth Makers, The Daleks' Master Plan, and The Massacre - spoilers and slightly large pictures follow )

And that brings us, at long last, to a story intact - THE ARK!
Photobucket

The first Doctor, Steven, and Dodo arrive on an ark - an actual space ark, for the saving of mankind, earth animals, and Monoids (pictured above). Soon all are threatened by a combination of classism and the common cold.

Please join us Sunday, 8 PM BST to watch the next story of an exciting era of Who’s history. Those of you who are familiar with it, feel free to comment with the no doubt endless reasons why it must be seen, or with fond remembrances of the five burninated stories above. Or, uh, what they may have to do with the Master...? I feel so off-topic right now.

So... it's that time again.  In about ten minutes or so, I'll be starting The Chase to continue the Watchalong of Time and Spa.  Come join Mem in the chat so she's not a sad little panda? I think this is the last serial for Barbara and Ian, so I really will be a sad panda this time, regardless of people being there or not, but it's more fun when there's someone else in there with me.  Hopefully I'll see someone there!

If anyone's around to watch The Space Museum - assuming my calculations are correct and that is indeed what is next on the schedule for Ultimate Watchalong All of Time and Spa - I will be in the chatroom from five minutes ago until, er, until such time as I see fit, hoping someone will come along and watch with me. I may begin even if alone (my brandy alexander will keep me company), but I will gladly start over if any Actual People show -

OH LOOK ONE ACTUAL PERSON. I guess the watchalong is a go for at least us, then. If any of you would care to join us, we'll wait until about half-past the hour (8:00 BST) to begin. Hope to see you there!

Mods, please feel free to create an actual post for this if you see fit.

PS: Has anyone seen this? I think it may be Relevant to Our Interests - it's a forthcoming past Doctor adventure featuring the third Doctor, the Master, and no other mentioned companions. "[S]et on both 20th century Earth and far into the future, it will see the duo battling to save the universe – and facing the ultimate moral crisis." Sounds like a recipe for goodness to me.
EDIT: [livejournal.com profile] x_los has informed me that the book does have Jo in it, actually, which is fine by me. Expanded article with added giant-squid-flavor illustration of the Nestene consciousness here!

'The Sensorites' becomes relevant in Ten era because the Ood resemble the titular species, and are stated to be genetically related to them. More importantly in terms of overall canon, Susan demonstrates telepathic powers in this serial, making this the show's first instance of psychic!TLs. One is surprised to find Susan's a good deal more psychic than he is. Good genes on the Master's side, I guess...

Rain Date showing of the Aztecs tonight at 8:30 pm BST, in accordance with the poll results (and moved back half an hour because Aztecs is so blessedly short, for once in our classic-era lives). Be there or face Barbara's Bitch Please face. It is indeed terrible to behold.

ROUND UP
 
(you can be a bit late, like this in your responses, fyi--no one's judging, it's still relevant/interesting)
 
 
I REALLY urge you to watch The Aztecs. It's ONLY FOUR PARTS--so a neat, tidy serial, compared to some of the 7-part epics we've been watching. It's very well written, with a great setting, and some well-crafted minor characters. Barbara is at her *best* here, and it's an intriguing episode for thinking about time travel, moral responsibility, and history, and how these work in Who. If you liked, for example, Fires of Pompeii, I'd say this is similar but better? And my GOD the Aztec costumes can be visually interesting!
 

NOTES:

* FIND/PREP IT NOW IF YOU NEED TO DO SO. Still plenty of time! 
* Our food theme is MEXICAN (for obvious reasons). Most impressive, creative, or apropos choices get mad kudos. Post pics or tell us about it!
* The drinking game will be formulated below. I will start the thread, people can contribute now or as we watch, and then I'll make a wrap-up comment with all the rules.
* PLEASE POST REVIEWS HERE, OR LINK TO THEM! Funny, insightful, whatever, we want it.
* Discuss!
