  1. Summary

    The Doctor calls it 'the interdict' - the only time their folie à deux can be anything but poison. The Master doesn't call it anything but needs the same thing.

    Two stories, because neither the Doctor or the Master is a reliable narrator, especially on the subject of each other.

    Haven't they burned enough bridges for one lifetime?

    It’s love. Burning, bitter love. The painful kind, all the kindness sucked out. The perfect line, capturing the Doctor/Master pairing in a nutshell.

    This is a great AU twist on the events of "Spyfall", with the Doctor succumbing to her shock and horror rather than escaping from the Kasaavin dimension. Impatient for her to play his game, the Master has to go and get her back.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Newly regenerated, Missy is still out of sorts and runs into the Thirteenth Doctor and fam. Fun and poignant at the same time - a great development from the short story "Dismemberment" in "The Missy Chronicles". (The author's notes contain all the context you need, if you've not read the book!)

    Summary

    Missy's still trying to decide who exactly she's supposed to be.

    (A short period of calm, contemplation, and outdoor sex during World Enough and Time/The Doctor Falls.)

    This covers a lot of emotional ground as Missy deals with the situation that "The Doctor Falls" left almost completely to the imagination. There's smut between Missy and her past-self but this story is anything but a self-cest enabling PWP - it's a detailed study of Missy and the other characters as they head towards THAT ending. I'm going to be thinking about this piece for a long time.

    Does what it says on the tin. Does not end well for anyone involved. This turned out to be one of those fics that I've always wanted to read but didn't know it yet.

    Summary

    And so the Master permitted himself to be imprisoned; enticed by the little victories he won (would always win) over the Doctor. But the Doctor knew better: deep within this Master was a viciousness that waited to strike.

    It would not be put to rest so easily.

    What if it was the Simm incarnation of the Master in the Vault? Post-"Oxygen", with the Doctor at a functional disadvantage, it goes about as well as you'd expect. Claustrophobic and scary.
