Author's Summary: Turlough is fixated on the Master. However shall he scratch his itch?
Recced because: The idea of Turlough keeping a diary is one of the greatest things ever. And that's exactly what he does here. It's at the Doctor's urging, of course, since Turlough has initial reservations about setting his thoughts down on paper. Once he gets started, though, he finds a favorite topic: his attraction to the Master, which even Turlough himself thinks is disturbing, considering that the Master is evil. The solution? Turlough decides to seek out an earlier, presumably less insane, regeneration of the Master! This story is one of the funniest things I've read in ages and the characterization of Turlough is excellent.
I have a problem.
This is a problem…because he’s, well, evil. And really, I’m not all that enamored with evil. Which is good, I think. If I did find evil attractive, what would I do if we three time travelers should run into Hitler or Ivan the Terrible? It’d be terribly awkward to say the least. Really it’s the power, even self-perceived, that draws me in like a moth to flame. The Master simply oozes power and control. Plus he makes the Doctor all flustered, which I’ve discovered, is rather entertaining.
