Rec: Tell Me About Your Mother

Story: Tell Me About Your Mother (The Slightly Freudian Remix)
Author: Elliptic Eye
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1516
Author's Summary: A defining moment wherein a true friend helps the young Theta Sigma look deep within himself and understand the ways in which he is a wanker.
Characters/Pairings: Theta (pre-series Doctor), Delgado!Master, arguably Doctor/Master

Recced because: Elliptic Eye has written some very funny things - this is one of them. If you like jokes about the Doctor's teenage angst and bad poetry and/or jokes about the Master being a loser, you've come the right place (although, to be fair to Delgado, he comes off by far the better of the two in this). I also think the choice to turn a supposed therapy session on Gallifrey into a comedy skit was inspired - and, on that note, I think this is a very clever remix. The original is about a totally different character (although no names are given, so it's a fair cop swap) mentoring the young Doctor - and is without so much piss taking. But I like the piss taking. And I'm probably going to rec a more serious one tomorrow.
