Story: The Chess Players
Author: Forge
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 2078
Author's Summary: The Patrician of Ankh-Morpork, Lord Vetinari and the Doctor play a friendly game of chess. Crossover with Discworld
Characters/Pairings: Seventh Doctor
Warnings: None.

Recced because: I’m in awe of this author’s portrayal of the Master, so it breaks my heart a tiny little bit not to rec one of those fics instead, but I had to come down to this one in the end: Seven plays Lord Vetinari at Chess. With Pratchett-esque prose and footnotes, not to mention forebodings and a certain twistiness. And bonus Commander Vimes. Maybe not one for those who haven’t read Discworld (but then if you haven’t read any Discworld books yet, why are you wasting time here? You should be off finding Guards! Guards! or something right now. Then you can come back and read this.)
