Recced because:

Some Are Boojums is a mind-trip, a slippery thing to grasp, and an amazing feat. It is amazing. In the spirit of the story I’ll tell that three times: Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! I’ve read it at least eight times, and new meanings unfurl themselves each time.

Amy_wolf has taken Lewis Carol’s epic nonsense poem The Hunting of the Snark and used it as the basis for a truly inspired glimpse at what might have happened had the Master lived at the end of The Last of the Timelords. The Master narrates the story to various unidentified companions, and, as he slips further into insanity, you can’t help but feel sorry for him. As for the Doctor, well, his insatiable desire to ‘fix’ things is worrying to say the least!

You don’t need to have read Lewis Carol’s poem to understand this story (I hadn’t the first time I read it), but I encourage you to seek out that poem anyway, since it’s readily available online and makes for a good mind-trip in and of itself.
