Story: Ad Infinitum
Author: LN29
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 3346
Author's Summary: On a dead and forgotten world, a Time Lord and a Time Lady meet again. But this time, it's not an accident.
Characters/Pairings: Twelfth Doctor/Missy
Warnings: None.

Recced because: It’s a missing scene between S8 & 9 and an brilliant, layered look at these two, not only in these particular incarnations but in the history of their interactions down through the years.

Title: Like Always
Author: nostalgia
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 583
Author's Summary: Post-Heaven Sent Twissy fic. Spoilers and violence
Characters/Pairings: Twelve/Missy
Warnings: None

Recc'ed Because: Oh, I'm a sucker for the twisted Doctor/Master relationship in any incarnation. And this one reminds us that despite her regeneration, the Master is still the Master, still showing the Doctor just how much she loves him by how much she can hurt him. I like how this piece also shows a damaged but still recognizable Doctor, who just might want to be broken--but only by her.

Title: One Out of Three Isn't Bad
Author: Daystar Searcher
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 696
Author's Summary: Missy decides to go back in time and seduce Three's companions. It doesn't entirely go as expected.
Characters/Pairings: Jo Grant, Liz Shaw, Sarah Jane Smith, Missy
Warnings: Explicit Sex

Recc'ed Because: Because of course Missy would decide to go back to her old stomping grounds in an attempt to overpower and entrance the Doctor's old companions. And it goes about as well as you'd expect. This short little story has perfect character voices and is equal parts sexy and hilarious and yes, because it's Missy, also a tiny bit chilling.

Author's Summary: "He's going to love you."
Characters/Pairings: Clara Oswin Oswald/Missy
Warnings: Non-Con

Recced because: Yes, this fic is short. But this fic was the first Clara/Missy fic I liked. I felt their dynamic in this fic was similar to their dynamic in canon, and I could see this as a missing scene that could have taken place before "The Bells of Saint John."

Story: The Dread Pirate Missy
Author: Penny
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 5811
Author's Summary: “It’s all a bit Dread Pirate Roberts, isn’t it? ‘Good-night, Osgood. Sleep well. I’ll most likely kill you when the loop ends’.” Osgood knew she ought to be more concerned at finding herself aboard Missy's TARDIS. Again. And again. And again. In which things get a bit Groundhog Day, Osgood eats a lot of butterscotch, and Missy learns a valuable lesson about friendship.
Characters/Pairings: Missy/Osgood (sort of)
Warnings: None.

Recced because: This is pretty much a murderous version of Groundhog Day, as the author's summary suggests. It's at times hilarious, heartwarming, and disturbing. Written before there was any suggestion of Osgood returning, this fic single-handedly convinced me that this was a TARDIS team that really ought to have happened. (It could still happen, in fact. Your move, Steven Moffat.) The characters' voices are distinct and well-written, and their relationship develops from iteration to iteration to one of almost, maybe if you squint hard enough, mutual respect.

Ahoy there, Calufraxers! I'm [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook (vvj5 on Teaspoon) and I'll be your reccer for the next two weeks. I have a fondness for pretty much all eras, so I'll be reccing a fair mix (I hope!). To start with, however, let's get bang up to date.

Story: Love/Hate
Author: nostalgia
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 3552
Author's Summary: Missy blackmails the Doctor into spending some time with her at a posh hotel. Yay?
Characters/Pairings: Twelfth Doctor/Missy (mentions of River/Doctor)
Warnings: Swearing

Recced because: Missy blackmails Twelve into a romantic holiday. It could never go well, but the really terrible thing is it’s not as bad as the Doctor would like it to be. This is just so funny and sharp and true to the pair of them (and Doctor-Master relationships generally). In particular, Twelve’s continual annoyance throughout the fic is a joy to behold, though Missy’s constant needling isn’t far behind.

Have a snippet to tempt you:

This wasn't going at all well, which was only to be expected. He was being blackmailed into a holiday and it wasn't even a good one. He found a barstool and a drinks list and waited for the barman to notice him. He half wished he'd changed into something cooler, but he knew Missy would have taken that to mean he was prepared to enjoy himself.

“What will it be?”

“Water, with ice, and a banana daiquiri for my... “ Arch-nemesis? Best enemy? Former friend? “Annoying woman in black.”

Story: Force of Nature
Author: nostalgia
Rating: Teen
Word count: 2637
Characters: Missy, 12
Summary: The Doctor reluctantly assists Missy's life of crime.
Warnings: none

Recced because: This story is Classic Master. Missy keeps the Doctor and the reader guessing all the way through - the prose is crisp, the banter is strong, and the characterization fitting. The Master is simultaneously superior and vulnerable, the Doctor frustrated and reluctantly fond, and there is a customary blend of trust and mistrust between them. Good Missy stories are hard to find, and this is a good one.

Story: Another Fine Mess
Author: Lyaka
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 6310
Characters/Pairings: Three, Nine, Twelve, Missy, The Master (Delgado), The Brigadier, Twelve/Missy, Three/The Master (Delgado)
Author's Summary: Twelve gets careless in the lab and accidentally whips up a space/time paradox. The Brigadier is not amused. (Shameless multi-era sass fest.)
Warnings: None

Recced Because:

It's funny. It's really, really, really funny. Lyaka has written a comedy of witty sass, dark humour, forbidden love, and enough snark to cause a temporal paradox. Watching Doctors from different eras bicker at each other is something I always enjoy, and this fic delivers on that premise in spades. I dare you to get through it without giggling.
