Story: Not Dark Yet (series)
Author: Jaconda
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: Six stories, 50,447 words
Author's Summary: Exploring the universe from the Master's perspective and through the eyes of Leto, a woman whose world he destroyed.
Characters/Pairings: Delgado!Master, Original Companion, Third Doctor, Jo Grant, the Brigadier, UNIT, Master (other incarnation)
Warnings: None

Recced because: Unlike the Doctor, the Master has always preferred to travel alone. It's a challenge to any author to give him a companion without softening or altering his character too much. Jaconda manages to hit this delicate balance. While the Master and Leto gradually forge a partnership over the course of the series, the Master never descends into sentimentality. Leto herself is a well-rounded and interesting character: compassionate enough to evoke sympathy in the reader yet desperate and pragmatic enough to make her travels with the Master believable. Throw in a couple of guest appearances by UNIT and a few gripping adventures, and you've got a compelling read.

Note: The first two stories feature the Delgado!Master and the Third Doctor. The remainder were written before Series Three and feature a post-Time War original Master who is reunited with Leto. Although the Doctor doesn't appear in the latter stories, Jaconda sets up a deliberate contrast between the actions of the Doctor and the Master in the absence of the Time Lords.
