Rating: Teen
Word Count: 2,605
Author's Summary: The Master and the Doctor usually manage to understand each other, no matter how many situations they get themselves into.

Warnings: None.

Recced because: Remixes are one of my favorite things in fandom. If you're not familiar, they're basically fanfics of other fanfics - taking someone else's work and giving it a new spin, a new perspective, or expanding it somehow. In this fic, Rynne started with A Bad Habit by Hokuto, which is a fun short piece about the Doctor and the Master working together, and expanded that idea into a series of confrontations and cooperative moments between the Doctor and the Master. I think the story succeeds both as a good example of a remix and as a good fic that can stand on its own.

Character/Pairings: ...Um... everyone?

I'm not much for OT3; I prefer the relationships that are restricted to two people. Adding a third into the mix is just to complicated for my tastes, and although I never really consider myself rational or logical, something about the OT3 just seems to unorthodox for my tastes.

That being said, there are a few very notable exceptions. When this can be done with good characterizations, and it fits in with a decent plot, and its believable then it is certainly worth reading.

This story is one of those exceptions. It's told in two parts - the first paying homage to the Doctors past, and the second half dealing with his future.

The past is really neat. Rynne is one of those authors who can draw on hold Whodom well. All of the companions that are still alive make an appearence, and even more amusing is how the Doctor reacts to seeing them all again! He doesn't necessarily jump for joy, but reacts slightly awkwardly.

The second part of the story is where the OT3 comes in. Rose shows up again with 10.5 in tow. WITH DONNA! Even better. :P

It's really neat seeing the dynamics of all these characters play out, and seeing how the Doctors past is going to effect this alternative version of the future.

It's thought provoking, cute, and uses Lord of the Rings to describe Rose and the Doctors relationship.

If you like OT3, check it out.
