Characters: Third Doctor, The Master (Delgado), Jo, U.N.I.T.
Pairing: Third Doctor/The Master (Delgado)
Word Count: 2729
Summary: In the course of the years recorded (unclear exactly how many), the Doctor confides his hopes, his dreams, his assessment of his wardrobe choices (v.g.) and his continual frustrations with the Time Lords - particularly the one who keeps annoyingly coming to visit him. It's difficult enough to keep his new regeneration resolutions already.
Why this must be read: It's hilarious! The Doctor's diary entries are hilariously snarky and really quite in character and his denial of his feelings for the Master is adorable. His friendship with Jo is also wonderful, going clothes shopping with her and talking to her about his conflicting feelings towards the Master. Completely adorable!
Excerpt: "10pm: Told Jo about the Master’s proposal. We both agreed that half a universe would give us significantly more wardrobe space, but that this wasn’t a good reason to accept a proposal from a ruthless megalomaniac, even if he is quite attractive and v polite. Am too young to get married/rule the universe anyway."
