Story: Brazilian Morning

Author: Primsong
Summary: Jo faces a new beginning, content with her choice.
Characters/Pairings: Jo Grant/Cliff Jones
Rating: G
Warnings: None
Recced because: Completely believable story with perfect Jo characterization. This is my headcanon for what happened immediately following “The Green Death.” The perfect happy ending for Jo which also fits perfectly with what we later learn about Jo’s post-Doctor life in “The Sarah Jane Adventures.”
Excerpt: “A finger of dawn slipped through the cracked shutters and touched the crystal, mysterious, complex and beautiful. She blinked at its depths for a moment, then turned away. He'd been a suitor for her time and attention, perhaps, but nothing more. A companion, a friend to travel with, yes, but he would never belong to anyone. He could never have given her this, this wonderfully fulfilling and completely human love.”

Story: Fourteen
http://www.whofic.com/viewstory.php?sid=35505&warning=Adult
Author: x_los
Summary: They were sleeping together at eight. In the literal “sharing a bed” sense.
Characters: Koschei and Theta aka The Master (Academy era) and The Doctor (Academy era), Ushas aka The Rani (Academy era.) Koschei/Theta pairing.
Word Count: 3411
Rating: R
Warnings: None
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.”

Story: Rosemary and Time
http://www.whofic.com/viewstory.php?sid=41783
Author: Memory Dragon
Rating: PG-13
Summary: UNIT has finally found the Master, who went missing a month ago after being wounded. Relieved to hear the news, the Doctor finds that there's something still wrong with the Master. Uses the Master’s backstory from the Doctor Who novel “The Dark Path”, but reading the novel isn’t necessary to enjoy the fic.
Characters/Pairings: Third Doctor, (Delgado) Master, Jo Grant, the Brigadier, Doctor/Master pairing.
Warnings: None.
Recced because: Why should it always be the Doctor who loses his memory? This fic is a clever look at what would happen if the Master suffered amnesia. It’s a lovely, funny, sad, bittersweet story about what would happen if the Doctor and the Master were able to be friends again.
Excerpt: “It was, surprisingly enough, the Brigadier who made sure that no one commented or were allowed to collect on bets when Koschei had taken to sleeping in the Doctor's TARDIS, rather than the flat UNIT had provided for him. Or unsurprisingly, considering the man could be very discreet and the less said about office romances the better. The Doctor was more amused than anything, but he could tell Koschei at least appreciated the courtesy. Jo had been very put out, however, since she'd have won at least fifty pounds by his reckoning from earlier conversations he'd overheard.”

Characters/Pairings: Author created Doctor, author created Master, Lister, Rimmer, Cat, Kryten, Holly. Doctor/Master pairing.
Warnings: None, other than being a crossover.
Recced because: This is a very clever, very funny, and well-written crossover. The “Red Dwarf” characters are perfectly in-character and the whole thing feels very believable. Highly enjoyable crossover.

Story: Mating Habits
http://www.whofic.com/viewstory.php?sid=43831&warning=Adult
Author: TARDIScrash
Summary: “Survival” as a Five serial. The Doctor ends up infected and stranded with the Master.
Characters/Pairing: Fifth Doctor/The Master (Ainley)
Rating: R
Word Count: 4724
Why recced: Great premise! An expansion of “Survival” where the Doctor and the Master, both under the influence of the Cheetah Planet, are stranded together and give in to their animal instincts. Intriguing analysis of their relationship and the way that the Master’s life revolves around the Doctor. And an adorably happy ending that you wish could really happen.
Excerpt: “This other creature, the Master’s mate, the Doctor, the only thing in the Master’s kingdom that could be his equal, was the focus of the Master’s life, and nothing brought him more joy than caring for his mate and seeing that he was as content as the Master. This seemed to the Master like something that had always been, a basic truth of nature. The sun rose and the night fell and he was bound eternally to the Doctor.”

Story: Those People Down in Marketing
http://www.whofic.com/viewstory.php?sid=44899
Author: neveralarch
Summary: An office AU, where the Master is a programmer and the Doctor is in marketing, and they can't stand each other. Obviously.
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Characters: The Sixth Doctor, The Master (Ainley), Mel, Evelyn
Pairing: Sixth Doctor/The Master (Ainley)
Word Count: 1508
Why recced: Brilliant AU! The Sixth Doctor is very in-character and Mel is adorable as the Master’s best friend. Great dialogue, clever references to canon, and everything is just really cute. A very fun fic!

Story: Survival Take One: Failure Rate
http://www.whofic.com/viewstory.php?sid=35537
Author: x_los
Rating: PG-13
Characters/Pairing: Seventh Doctor/Master (Ainley)
Summary: Crack!Response to Survival. The Master employs amazing long-term pick-up strategies, at the expense of the Doctor's sanity and Bernaz the Sentient Muskrat of Woe.
Why recced: Perfect crack! Everything that is ridiculous about the episode “Survival” (and Ainley Master’s plots in general) and everything that is ridiculous about the Doctor/Master pairing is made fun of brilliantly and hilariously.
Excerpt: “Can’t you ever just ask me out on a normal date?” the Doctor shrieked. “The Cheetah Planet? For Rassilon’s sake, I just want to go to the Olive Garden and order Veal Parmesan or something! Instead I’m trapped for an unknown period on a planet of frankly ridiculous looking carnivores with you licking your fangs at me–goddamit, Koschei! I just wanted some appetizers and white wine! Maybe a Bellini! Why in nine hundred years have you never done the decent thing by me and bought me a Bellini?!”

Story: The Doctor's 500 Year Diary
http://www.whofic.com/viewstory.php?sid=39493
Author: aralias
Characters: Third Doctor, The Master (Delgado), Jo, U.N.I.T.
Pairing: Third Doctor/The Master (Delgado)
Word Count: 2729
Rating: PG
Summary: In the course of the years recorded (unclear exactly how many), the Doctor confides his hopes, his dreams, his assessment of his wardrobe choices (v.g.) and his continual frustrations with the Time Lords - particularly the one who keeps annoyingly coming to visit him. It's difficult enough to keep his new regeneration resolutions already.
Why this must be read: It's hilarious! The Doctor's diary entries are hilariously snarky and really quite in character and his denial of his feelings for the Master is adorable. His friendship with Jo is also wonderful, going clothes shopping with her and talking to her about his conflicting feelings towards the Master. Completely adorable!
Excerpt: "10pm: Told Jo about the Master’s proposal. We both agreed that half a universe would give us significantly more wardrobe space, but that this wasn’t a good reason to accept a proposal from a ruthless megalomaniac, even if he is quite attractive and v polite. Am too young to get married/rule the universe anyway."

Author's Summary: Jamie sleeps in. Mayhem ensues.
Characters: Second Doctor, Jamie, Victoria
Pairings: Second Doctor/Jamie
Warnings: None
Recced because: Sweet, simple, fluff that makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside. True to the characters, if Jamie and the Doctor ever did get together this is probably how it happened.
Excerpt: “Jamie was certain that there were rules where he came from, rules certainly against things like kissing strange centuries-old men from other worlds; but somehow, out in this little blue box spiraling into the unknown, with all of time and space to call their home, those rules — Scotland itself, perhaps even the earth — seemed so tiny in the grand scheme of life as to make those rules seem like nothing more than a distant memory, and certainly nothing worth paying any regard.”

Story: Master Calendar
http://www.whofic.com/viewstory.php?sid=19857
Author: Evilawyer
Rating: PG 13
Word Count: 5678
Author’s Summary: Crossover with “Angel”. Wolfram & Hart sign up a very important new client with an ugly family law problem.
Characters: The Master (Simm), Tenth Doctor, Angel, Spike, Illyria, Harmony.
Pairing: Tenth Doctor/The Master (Simm), references to The Master/Spike
Warnings: Spoilers for “Angel” Season 5 and classic Who.
Recced because: Fun and cleverly cracky crossover. It’s always fun to see an outsider’s perspective on the Doctor/Master relationship and Spike and Angel’s reactions are perfect. It’s totally believable that Spike and the Master would get along so well and their mockery of the Doctor is delightfully mean and in character.
Excerpt: Observing the interaction between the Doctor and the Master, Spike reached what he thought was a sagacious conclusion. He then reached the decision to share it with the entire room. “You two bicker like old and very unhappy marrieds. Maybe you should think of getting a divorce.” Turning to Angel, he said “Angel, are you sure you don't know the Doctor from way back? Because it sounds like you learned a thing or two from him about how to pick up blond teenaged girls.” Feeling like he should make at least a token attempt to regain control of the situation before abandoning all hope, Angel glowered at Spike. “Spike, not now. And I'm sure Mr. Master has some real legal problem he's here to see us about, not your crazy imaginings.”

Rating: PG
Word Count: 5906
Author's Summary: The Doctor, the Brigadier, and Jo get pulled away to a winter wonderland, only to find the Master in the midst of a plot. Who will win the epic battle in the snow?
Characters: Third Doctor, The Master (Delgado), Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Jo Grant. Pairing: Third Doctor/The Master (Delgado).
Warnings: None.
Recced because: It’s completely and utterly adorable! Sweet and fluffy while still keeping everyone in character. This is exactly the kind of silly plan that Delgado Master would come up with and this is exactly how the Doctor, Jo, and the Brigadier would react. Great dialogue, wonderful use of Jo’s point of view, and great portrayal of Three’s era and its kind of humor.
