A Cosmos Without Doctor/Master Scarcely Bears Thinking About
Oh, Lethbridge Stewart---

Master: laser...
Be still my heart.

I just finished watching 'The Mind of Evil'. I'll have icons and things at some point, and fic as well, but for now I just felt compelled to enumerate several points.

1.] The Master has it bad. Bad, bad. I no longer take issue, in any form, with the ending to LotTL. No, it's perfect. That is how the Master would react to suddenly empowered Doctor floatiness.

2.] I would totally do Lethbridge. So would the Doctor. Hell, so would the Master...

3.] My head will explode if I attempt to write the fic alluded to in point 2.

4.] I think that I OFFICIALLY love Delgado!Master better than Simm!Master. He's adorable and conniving, and so very sane, in a twisted crazy kind of way. Like... when he's driving up to the prison in part 3 and he's got that little radio that he's been using to tap UNIT's phone lines? There's this dramatic music playing--- and when he switches off the device, the music stops. BECAUSE HE WAS JUST LISTENING TO IT FOR THE HELL OF IT. >__< <3

Hell of a good arc, chaps. Hell of a bloody good arc.

You put it so well. :D

Also, I want Three/Brig fic. But no-one ever writes it and my muse died over a year ago. :(

But! This post is awesome. Yes. :D

I have nothing futher to add. :P

*is not actually on drugs just squee*

*pats* Hang in there, I fully intend to write it. They don't get nearly enough love in this era.

2.] I would totally do Lethbridge. So would the Doctor. Hell, so would the Master...

It's his bearing. It's doable in a stiff, tall kind of way. He gets cuddlier later on. Doctor, I'm not sure. The Master...yes. I must admit that I can really see that.

4.] I think that I OFFICIALLY love Delgado!Master better than Simm!Master

Now, don't you feel all kinds of better saying that out loud? Immensely freeing to admit it, isn't it. Ain't no slouch in the looks department, either, at least for his time.

He is rather handsome, isn't he? *strokes chin*

I think you're probably right about the Doc... he's such an odd duck at this stage [not that he isn't always...] because he's still stranded, instead of being on Earth of his own volition.Maybe in time, but-- hoo-boy... Master/Brig? I might have to risk cranial rupture. Give me some time to mull it over.

You know, the Master "my dear Brigadier"'s the Brig quite a bit. Dwell on that --- it may bring something to mind.
Maybe something involving sticky tape?

melts at the thought

Delgado!Master's personal Evil Music Player is one of my favourite Master moments EVER! :D

Mind of Evil = pure awesomeness.
Also, I'm convinced the Master feared not the Doctor laughing at him, but that the Doctor would turn evil and they won't have any more fun with the Doctor foiling his rubbish schemes.

I like that idea, and would love to see it explored in fic! Why aren't there any stories where the Doctor goes evil and the Master *doesn't* like it? There's probably no shortage of stories where they're happily evil together, or the Master tries to bring him over to the dark side of Time Lording.

I've read a few fics (well, chatfics) where the Doctor is finally driven to crazei evol by the Master, and the Master goes "Oh shit, this is not what I expected!" They're mostly all by snowgrouse, and they're mostly all on the member-only timecocktiem, except this one.

hahah that icon sums everything up SO NICELY 8D

I don't know, Orpheus gives Delgado a run for his money with the sexiness of his wise-elder beard. :>

I love Delgado!Master more than any other Master, and kind of more than life. He's the only reason I continue to repeatedly watch Three-era episodes, and Mind of Evil is the best Three-era episode, oh my goodness. Have you seen The Sea Devils? If you've not you must, you must! :D

Delgado!Master is made of win beyond human comprehension. No lie. The random, evilly dramatic music, the penchant for early Earth sci-fi, the leather gloves, Cuban cigars... not to mention the fact that he's so obviously in love with the Doctor. With Ainley and Simm it's debatable, I think, but with Delgado!Master it's just so clear that he and the Doctor are playing one great game with each other. And in Mind of Evil, when he thinks the Doctor's died? The panic! It's adorable.

Also, much agreement in re. the Brig. He is awesome. And, *cough*, I kind of have a thing for Brig/Benton. Shhh.

Also, it is so much easier to slash Doctor/Master before, erm, the Master destroyed one fourth of the Universe, killed the Doctor, decided to burn few dozens people and the Doctor for fun, and held him prisoner for a year.

That too. But, y'know.
