Rec: Future by Styrofoam Monster (Doctor/Master, Teen)

Title: Future
Author: Styrofoam Monster
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 423
Author's Summary: They are not humans, and they will not be Time Lords.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor/Simm!Master
Warnings: None

Recc'ed Because: A dark, imaginative, and brutal AU where the Doctor and the Master end up on Earth, almost domestic but with old habits that die hard. There is an amazing amount of depth packed into so few words. The poetic dread of being the last of their kind, of fitting nowhere, not even with each other--simmers just under the surface of this story, unstated but pervasive. I love the discussion of Gallifreyan synonyms and tenses. I am not sure whether to be happy or sad at the ending.
