Title: Lost in the Echo
Author: PhoenixDragon
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 2812
Author's Summary: When he cut and ran from the Vortex, the thud-thud-thud of his hearts like drum-beats within his ears, he knew they had deemed him a coward. Unfit. Unbecoming material for Time Lord.
Characters/Pairings: Borusa, Irving Braxiatel, The Master (Academy era), The Rani (Academy era), The Doctor (1st)
Warnings: None

Recc'ed Because: Great world-building, and a chilling and very believable backstory for how Koschei started on the road to the incessant sound of drums. The Time Lord mythology is both intriguing and mysterious, and I love how the Master's downfall is brought about by his own brilliance and insatiable desire--not just to know, but to cement his own superiority in his mind and chase away his insecurities.

Recced because: Adorable Academy era friends to lovers Koschei/Theta story. Covers their friendship from age eight when they looked into the Vortex through the time they make love for the first time. Sweet, funny, warm and fuzzy, with a touch of drums related angst. Told from Koschei’s point of view, as he comes to realize that he wants to be more than friends with Theta.
Excerpt: “The next dream Koschei could remember was several nights later. Theta and Drax were starting up an all-ukulele musical act, but since they’d failed to properly instruct Koschei and Ushas in the ukulele arts, they would have to accept Ushi on tambourine and Koschei on the drums. There was some trouble about getting booked he really couldn’t remember the next day. The weird thing, he thought as he shaved his recently arrived facial hair, carefully omitting the fuzz at his upper lip (he was trying to grow a moustache), was that none of them even really liked Drax. He just sort of hung around. Koschei couldn’t imagine why he’d dream that Drax would be in lead-ukulele position opposite Theta when he was the clear choice for the role.”

Author's Summary: There's no April Fools' Day on Gallifrey. So imaginative students at the Time Lord Academy celebrate it every day.
Characters/Pairings: Theta, Koschei, Ushas (Doctor, Master, Rani)
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's utterly, unspeakably hilarious and involves both the Toaster of Rassilion and asperiations being cast upon Omega's virtue. I dare not say more, for it is but a drabble; as such, however, it's a quick and excellently funny read.

Story: Things to Do on Gallifrey When You're Bored
Author: Joan Milligan
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1,834
Author's Summary: Theta and Koschei (and Ushas) have a lot of time to kill.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor, The Master, The Rani (all Academy-era)
Warnings: None

Recced because: If the Doctor, the Master, and the Rani were trouble after graduation, just imagine what they got up to before they left the Academy. Bored college students find all sorts of inappropriate things to occupy themselves: computer hacking ... dorm room redecoration ... casual sex ... TARDIS-building. (Okay, that last one definitely didn't happen at my college, but everything else was awfully familiar.) This is a wry character study that points out how little difference there is between extracurricular interests and full-time occupations, at least for these three Time Lords, and though I don't often read Academy-era fic, this is one of my favorites.
