Recced because: It just might make your skin crawl enough that you hate yourself for enjoying it. This story is AU in terms not only of plot, but of character, I should note, but it's a true AU: Changes aren't random; they all stem from a central "what if?" I'll leave you unspoiled as to what the "what if" here is, but The Game of Making is one of the most interesting explorations of just what this whole Time Lord thing might mean that I've seen. In spirit it reminds me strongly of Big Finish's Unbound series.

Look, it's fanfic about an erotic Gedankenexperiment. What more do you need to know?

Here is how the game is played:

She tells him an early memory, a formative experience. He explains to her how he could manipulate it to change her personality.

They both become excited.

At the crucial moment, he asks, "Are you sure this is what you want?"

And she says, "Make me, Time Lord."

Goodnight, y'all. It's been a pleasure reccing for you.
