Rec: A Very Civil Partnership

Story: A Very Civil Partnership
Author: nostalgia
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1130
Author's Summary: The Doctor does indeed get to settle down with the Master. And it all goes downhill from there.
Characters/Pairings: Ten/Simm!Master, Reinette (implied Ten/Reinette, implied Master/other)
Warnings: none

Recced because: Like Jack/Ianto fic, humorous Ten/Master recs have been lacking on this comm to date. Here's one of my favorites. The Master is still evil, but the Doctor very optimistically thinks he can keep him under control. By the way, these two are married. Think that'll help the Doctor in his efforts? Probably not. After all, he is dealing with the Master here. This is a hilarious story with some surprises thrown in.

(Note: Although it's marked as not being complete, this part stands fine on its own and the author says in her LJ that she is unlikely to ever write more.)

"Do you have a valuation on your current property?" asked the man who may or may not agree to give them a mortgage.

"I was once offered fifteen camels for it, but that didn't really seem enough."

"How large is the property?" asked the unmoved bank employee. Probably he'd heard worse.

The two Time Lords looked at each other.

"Huge," said the Master.

"About this big," said the Doctor, stretching his arms out.

"Darling," said the Master, enjoying the domestic role too much, "there's no need to be modest about size." He smiled at the would-be mortgage provider. "You'll have to excuse my husband, he was raised by poor people."

They were actually married. They'd had a lovely ceremony in a registry office in Cardiff, attended by the immortal freak and his little friends. One of them had even cried. Why they didn't just fake the paperwork was obvious. The Doctor was a big girl.
