A Cosmos Without Doctor/Master Scarcely Bears Thinking About
Rec: Five On Top by gritsinmisery

Title: Five On Top
Pairing: Five/Ainley
Warnings: Porn
Length ?? 2000-3000, I reckon.
Author on LJ: gritsinmisery
Author's summary: Five/Ainley!Master with the Doctor topping and the Master begging.
Why this must be read: This is my absolute favouritest fic on the b_e anon meme (and there are many other good ones to be had - so that's one reason to begin with). Five doesn't get to top often, which mostly makes sense. But the inverting of their traditional fanfic roles (sexual predator/helpless captive) really works. The fic is all about the porn (good porn, too), but it also presents us with a beautiful portrait of the Master, torn between the desperate desire to get his end away, and the desire to be Master of everything. Alas, he should have chosen someone else to stalk, because the Doctor is not a man to be mastered. Strangely, despite the scenario, their relationship here is presented as wonderfully equal, and that is really what I want from my Doctor/Master fic. That and bondage sex, apparently.

Excerpt: “For one night, you will ask for what you want -- exactly and precisely what you want -- no hedging, no banter. You will ask, not tell, and you will ask politely. If you demand, if you bluster, you will be left just like this with nothing but your frustration and your imagination. But if you can quit playing games long enough; if you decide that having my complete attention is worth giving up your beloved control for a short while… You’re quite apt to get anything you ask for.”

*lowers head, raises hand, peeks up shyly*

Um, that was me. I did that.

Long ago and far away, I was in the process of editing it, but the person I'd chosen for a beta has a bit of a different view on the Doctor-Master relationship, and while I admire that person's work and also agreed with a lot of what that person said, I ended up floundering and never got around to posting a nice clean edited version. Guess I oughta work on that sometime, eh?

i've edited the post :D i actually quite like the name, because it reminds me of extremely english children's books - there's probably a paddington book called 'paddington on top'*, for example - the irony pleases me.

and this FIC, this fic pleases me. lots. if you did post it properly that'd be lovely and wonderful, because i (conversely) think this is a great view on the doctor/master relationship (see above) and one of my favourite fics in the fandom. so. i don't mind beta-ing either... if you need a second opinion...

* (edit) yes, i thought there was.

Oh, and I generally refer to it simply as Five on Top, because I'm horridly unimaginative that way.
