Author's Summary: When the Doctor doesn't come to a moon the Master had taken over to stop him, the Master has to come up with a plot to get back the Doctor's attention: Learning how to dance West Coast Swing!
Characters/Pairings: The Master (Delgado)/OC, The Master (Delgado)/ The Doctor (3rd), The Doctor (8th),
Recced because: My favorite part about reccing is having the chance to highlight a great story that folks might otherwise pass up. On the face of it, this story should be labeled “crack,” but given some of the Master’s absurd plots in canon, is learning West Coast Swing really that far-fetched? . Lizzie, the story’s original character, is well-crafted and interesting, and the plot is engaging. Best of all is the characterization of Delgado!Master, who manages to be sympathetic, charming and evil (if not completely so) all at the same time.
