Story: With Enemies Like These
Author: Honourable Jester
Word Count: 16,492
Author's Summary: A question of Martha's sets the Tenth Doctor off down memory lane, back to his sixth incarnation, and a disturbing encounter with the Rani and the Master.
Characters/Pairings: Ten, Martha, Six, Ainley!Master, the Rani.
Warnings: Non-con, graphic sex, swearing, violence.
Recced because: Due warning - when I say non-con, I mean a serious, powerful look at rape as a concept, crime and weapon. This highly disturbing, highly effective story probes the ragged edges of the Doctor/Master/Rani dynamic while providing a fantastic portrayal of all three. The Master here is at his most indestructible, mesmerising and wretched self, nor does the author shy away from the Rani's clinical evil. Caught between the two, the sixth Doctor shines in his strength and his vulnerability. And somehow the whole ordeal manages to be - I wouldn't call it sexy, but it's quite a sensory experience that manages to balance captivating and repulsive almost magically. Longer than my other recs, but reads with bated breath.
The story is incomplete. I'm not sure if the author plans to take it up again. I'm rather hoping this would help.

Recced because: It is possibly the best drabble ever written in the fandom. A solid knife to the gut. Indescribable in its perfection. 100 words and the Doctor's life with his companions is summarized in awe and love.
