My apologies if someone has mentioned this before now, but I haven't seen it if so.

So, while watching "Logopolis" tonight I was looking through Big Finish's audio page and discovered these beautiful things. Crispy!Master is coming back for a two-part Fourth Doctor adventure!

I'd like to recommend this awesome fan film that I just found. It's a live action sequel to "Terror of the Autons" starring the Fourth Doctor and an excellent author created Master. The script is really great and feels just like a canon episode. The acting is great, the special effects are great, and it's a lot of fun. Check it out!

Song: Written in the Stars
Song Artist: Tinie Tempah
Characters/Pairings: The Master. (Delgado, Ainley, Roberts, Goosnake, Jacobi[Yana, not Shalka-verse], Simm.) It's Doctor/Master in that it's about the Master, and therefore involves the Doctor. And the Master. Interacting. As they do. If that isn't enough, let me know and I'll remove this post with a few groveling apologies.

I would like to recommend this. New Doctor/Master episodes! Performed with action figures! The scripts for these fan films are brilliant. All the characters are written very in character and the episodes feel completely canon. These films are great and so well done that the fact that the "actors" are made out of plastic doesn't make it feel any less real. Go watch these now! (And then go watch all of batmanmarch's other DW action figure adventures!)

Of all the films I’ve watched so far these four include the Master. Enjoy!

The Collective (3/Delgado)

Hell on Earth (5/Ainley)

I'm very sorry I'm so late getting started with my recs, everyone! There should be no further delays.

For my short series of recs, I will be recommending something literary and something musical on each post. Musical, you ask? Yes. I will be recommending songs written by fans of Doctor Who about the show. This is commonly called Trock (Timelord Rock), in the style of Wizard Rock, which you may be familiar with if you have spent time in the Harry Potter fandom. I possess no musical talent whatsoever, so I am kind of in awe of some of the songs that have been produced in our fandom!

Title: The Amazon
Pairing: Delgado!Master/Four
Length: ~9,500
Summary: Jo made a poor choice in husbands, the Master made a poor choice in building materials, and the Doctor's gone off in a scarf.
Warnings: language, off-screen sex
Author on LJ (or Teaspoon, or Prydonian): [livejournal.com profile] neveralarch, neveralarch (on Teaspoon), neveralarch (on AO3)
Why this must be read:

This story is quite possibly my favorite thing to come from the anon meme, which is saying quite a bit! Both the Jo and Delgado!Master voices are strong and distinctly them, which makes me savor every interaction between them. I think I could happily read their adventures forever. Whether it's Jo speculating about whether the Master's name is something ridiculous, taking him shopping for clothing with too many feathers on it, or expounding on his relationship with the Doctor while he quietly wishes for the ceiling to cave in on him so he can escape the conversation, Jo is so entertaining as his traveling companion. Jo's theories get in his head, and he can't ignore them.

As if all of that weren't awesome enough, this story also has the Fourth Doctor, which the world really needs more of. There are so many excellent, witty lines in this story. I like the thematic thread of poorly considered relationship decisions running throughout the fic. In fact, this story also has a wonderful prequel called "The Honeymooners" about another such bad relationship choice, mentioned in passing in "The Amazon."

"You know, back when we were locked up on your space ship, I tried to tell him. Doctor, I said, he does keep trying to give you half of the universe. Maybe you should be a little nicer. But he was too busy escaping to listen to me."

"Thank you for pleading my case," said the Master. He stared up at the ceiling, willing it to drop down on him before he had to listen to another word of Jo's completely ridiculous idea of relationship advice.

"And then after that," said Jo, "you'd shot him and disappeared. I told him your hand must have slipped, but he was too busy being upset about the Daleks."

"Was he," said the Master. The ceiling was not cooperating. He began to weigh the actual disadvantages of just throttling Jo.

"Yes, and I have to tell you, I'd avoid them if you want to get back together. The Doctor really hates the Daleks."

Link to the story

Title: The Sound of Drums
Pairing: Gen.
Length: 5:55
Warnings: None.
Musical Artist: Chameleon Circuit (at DFTBA and at Itunes)
Why this must be heard:

This song is part of Chameleon Circuit's second album, Still Got Legs. The band member lineup changed slightly between albums, and the new member Eddplant brought this song along with him (he had done an earlier version of it previously).  This version is spectacular. It sounds wonderful. (So does the whole album!) Essentially, it tells the story of the end of Series 3 in the Master's voice, with a brief and lovely interjection from the Doctor. I promise you you won't be able to listen to it only once!

Link to the song: it can be listened to at the blogs of a couple of the band members. Here or here.

Hey, sorry, I meant to get these out days ago but life got busy (why on earth do people work and why did nobody warn me?) and then whenever I did have a few minutes Lj seemed to just die on me.

Anyway, as an apology, have some fics.

The Thousand Natural Shocks
Pairing: Ten/Simm
Length: 8,600 words
Summary: Now, just when the Master has finally worked out how to die, the Doctor has apparently forgotten.
Warnings: None provided, I will say that it gets a little dark and kind of creepy in a few places.
Author on LJ:
Why this must be read:
Because its incredible? The Master is crazy and the Doctor is broken and creepy and, actually, this kind of makes more sense than most of the Season of Specials, or maybe it makes them make more sense. I'm not sure. But it takes little pieces from Utopia to End of Time, and squishes them together into a really strong, cohesive fic. The fic feels familiar and in some places and rather strongly ironic and darkly amusing in others. The Doctor/Master aspects are pretty subdued, but still obvious when you notice them, and quite touching because they're so subtly inserted.


Please let me help
. The Master thinks the Doctor must have suddenly acquired a sense of humor. He watches the shock roll across the Doctor's face as the what have you become resolves itself into horrible realization. The Master tries to echo the look, when all he can really feel is joy at the mess the Doctor's mind is beaming straight into his. What have you become? Time breaks in shallow waves around the Doctor, snapping and twitching. It's gorgeous. The Master hopes it's at least partially his fault.

And so the Master runs. Because the Doctor is running toward him, not away, and the physics of it just take over the Master's body, equal and opposite.

He is so hungry.

Pairing: Eleven/Simm
Length: 1,900
Summary: "Don't be clever," the Master says, rolling his eyes, and raises the gun, and shoots.
Warnings: Hmmm. Ten regenerates? Not sure if that even counts as a warning, but whatever.
Author on AO3:
Why this must be read:
It's really, really good. It's short, it’s funny, and it’s a nice way to get the morning on track. And this is one of the easiest reads I had lately (in a very good way). The Master is sarcastic and funny, 10 is himself and I should really hurry up and comment on this.


"Master--" the Doctor starts--mm, the Master closes his eyes, he does like hearing his name-- "Master, I will care in every lifetime. Don't you see that?"

"You're mad," the Master says simply, and bursts into giggles. Isn't he ironic.

"Maybe," says the Doctor, which shuts the Master up for just a second.

The gap closes up behind them. The Time Lords are gone. Gallifrey is receding into unbeing in the Earth sky. Old man locked in the cupboard. The Doctor still won't look away. Big damn cow eyes.

You can also have some vids.

Doctor Who: The Master's Love Letter
Pairing: Four/Ainley
Length: 2:20
Warnings: You will either be scarred for life or giggle for weeks.
Why it must be watched: Um, real, honest to god audio by Ainley (and Tom a little) overlaid with things like the sounds of zippers being unzipped and people smooching and the Doctor saying that he's "just a bit to sexy, really". If you ever wanted to know what Ainley would have said to Four if he ever wrote him a love letter, then this is for you. If you haven't then watch it anyway and feel your mind boggle.

"Peoples of the universe please attend carefully, the message that follows is vital to the future of you all."
"Doctor, since my heart is sick with longing, I would all the more wish you to understand that in my eyes, you are as immaculate and as radiant as ever."
"Perhaps this little demonstration will give you some glimpse of my real power ... Zzziiippppp"

Doctor Who End of Time SPOOF: Doctor would you like to...
Pairing: Ten/Simms (that is not a typo)
Length: 0:25
Warnings: None
Why it must be watched: Because I can't believe that I haven't seen this before. I mean this is Brilliant, Fantastic and Cool.

The final vid wasn't going to be included, because it would reveal my no-longer secret semi-fondness for Miley Cyrus, but the end credits imply that Five and Ainley should have been there and despite watching the vid three times in a row, I can't find them. So, first person to find them wins a cookie.

Doctor Who - See You Again
Pairing: Ten/Simm, maybe Five/Ainley
Length: 3:14
Warnings: Miley Cyrus. Is a music vid, not a story vid.
Why it must be watched: Secret Five/Ainley hidden somewhere in the vid. Surprising level of fittingness (ssshhh it is too a word). Because I no-longer-secretly like Miley Cyrus.

Okay. I feel like I've made amends somewhat. In a few days I'll put out recs: the mpreg edition because I found a surprising amount of stuff and I not-so-secretly like mpreg.

I was told by a couple of people to post this here. Only the first minute or so is particularly D/M-ish, so let me know if you'd rather I take it down. :)

[identity profile] x-losfic.livejournal.com
I was having a horrifying conversation with a friend WHO SHALL REMAIN NAMELESS TO CONCEAL THE MARINAS-TRENCH-LIKE DEPTHS OF HER SHAME the other night. She revealed that she had not seen a LOT of Four. You know, Four. The popular one. Scarf. Jewfro. That Four. HOW HAS THIS EVEN HAPPENED?! I know he doesn't seem to be peeling off his pantaloons with an alacrity for Crispy!Master, but dammit, Ainley!Master perved here first, kids, and if he can leer the paint off that wall you can at /least/ come along and glance at the woodwork underneath. That was a metaphor. I'm not entirely sure what of. Anyway.

I think a lot of people are Turned Off Four because he doesn't seem to flow neatly into the sequence of other Doctors--he's so alien he can seem not a part of the same man. I used to dislike him for just this reason. 'If the Doctor is (a large part of) what I'm here for, why should I bother with Scarfums McAloof? I'm not feeling a connection,' I said to myself out loud in a room full of people like a crazy/Ally McBeal.

BUT, slowly, with time and exposure, I really largely got over it. It's possible to satisfyingly understand Four as a reaction to Three and as precipitating Five in interesting ways, with rewarding attendant characterization. And he's a LOT of fun in his own right, my god. Four is in some ways the most Doctorish Doctor to ever Doctor Doctorly. He can be a joy to watch. While perhaps still not My Doctor (er, one of my four All Time Favorites, I can't pick for toffee) I have come to appreciate him sincerely. Plus Four's episodes have some of the best timing and writing in the series, and can be some of the most fun. PERFECT FOR A WATCHALONG, I THINK!!

TOMORROW NIGHT (the twenty-second) at 8 PM GMT, in celebration of Tom Baker's Birthday, we'll be watching some Classic Four Eps:

INSTRUCTIONS TO GET INTO CHAT: http://community.livejournal.com/best_enemies/251066.html


8:00 PM TO 10:00 PM

Romana I is Romana Fun. ...no she isn't (well, she's lovely and a good character, but she doesn't go out for drinks after work and get Totally Wasted and dance on the table except in a really awkward dream that Narvin doesn't like to talk about--she's not THAT kind of fun), but the Key to Time arc is well worth watching, with its Douglas Adams script editing, bright humor, solid sci-fi components, strong central conceit and general high quality. This one is based on Prisoner of Zenda, and has Romana in what [livejournal.com profile] aralias calls 'that amazing hat' and I call a genuine threat to my sanity.


10:15 PM TO 12:00 AM

Then on to City of Death! To quote [livejournal.com profile] aralias:

City of Death is widely acknowledged by people who don’t like Genesis of the Daleks to be the best Four story, and even people who love Genesis admit that it is more fun than should be allowed. Four and Romana hang around in Paris exchanging Mona Lisas and jokes written by Douglas Adams. Romana wears a school girl outfit FOR SOME REASON. If you’ve read Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, the plot may well feel slightly familiar as Adam’s based the book heavily on that (and Shada, which is better with Eight – just saying). If you haven’t read Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, maybe you should do that after--


12:15 AM TO 1:55 AM

And then Logopolis, which is not based on anything really, except the conclusion that Four/Ainley!Master would have been a sexy time. Seriously, it would have been, the Collaboration Scenes in Logopolis could give Three/Delgado!Master a serious run for money WHY ARE MORE PEOPLE NOT WRITING THIS WHEN THEY KNOW I NEED IT TO LIIIIIIIVE?!


In honor of Four, the Food will be THE MOST RANDOM ITEMS POSSIBLE. And obligatory Jelly Babies, but largely: A COMPETITION FOR WEIRDEST FOOD ITEM, PICS/RECIPIES/CONVINCING TALES OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN. [livejournal.com profile] alex_e_smith has a kangaroo out back (I shit you not, this woman is going to eat a kangaroo, that's so hard it's MADE OF DIAMONDS), so that's the one to beat. Can you do better? I think you can. It's almost Burns Night. Buy a haggis and rock. Not GROSS, mind you: just weird. Don't home-prepare that blowfish that has 151 steps to make it not-poisonous that you need a special license to work with, I'm not having your Horrible Histories-Esque Stupid Death on my conscience.

So. I am by no means an expert on anything whatsoever, but I recently indulged in this bit of fansquee that got away from me rather, and which I thought might be useful for new or newish D/M slashers, particularly those thinking about making the jump from New Who to Old Who. I'd like to think it might even be a little bit entertaining for those who've been around far longer than I have. So I figured I might as well post it here?

Doctor Who

A by-a-beginner-for-beginners-guide

being an entirely biased, completely incomplete, rough, opinionated, subject-to-editing, heavily Master-slanted, highly illustrated, unbetaed, not-at-all comprehensive look at the first 45 years of the Doctor's on-screen existence, with a heavy dose of Doctor/Master 'ship manifesto thrown in for the lulz, and a series of rec lists thrown in for the because-I-could

Hi everyone! This is my first time posting, aside from the introductory post, so I'd just like to say hello. :)

I'm in the process of re-watching Logopolis at the moment, and have posted a picspam/runthrough thing of the first episode at my journal, here. More to follow!
