Mating Habits

Story: Mating Habits
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.”
