Title: Sweet Nyssa
Disclaimer: I don't own any characters from Doctor Who; I just play with them for fun.
Fandom: Doctor Who
Genre: Angst. A touch of hurt/comfort in the last chapter.
Characters: Nyssa, the Master (Delgado), the Master (Ainley), the Fifth Doctor
Pairings: The Master/Nyssa/the Master
Warnings: None for this chapter expect from creepiness. There will be warnings for future chapters, though I’m not sure what, exactly, yet. Mindgames of the nasty variety, of course, what else with two Masters around. Extremely dubious consent in the best case scenario, or worse.
Length: Chapter 1 out of 3, or possibly 4, chapters.
Summary: It's not just the Doctor who sometimes meets himself. When two versions of the Master get their timelines entangled, they decide to go after Nyssa. Poor Nyssa.
AN: AN: This is my very first Doctor Who-fic, but when I started it, I wasn’t sure in what direction it would go so it has been on hold for a while. I also felt I needed to re-vamp the first chapter, so here is the re-written chapter. I still feel a bit wobbly about it, so feedback is very welcome. At the moment I have the plot all planned, but am unsure of how explicit it will all be. Explicit is great fun to write, but it might not serve the story best. What do you think?
I love both classic and new Who, but the classic has something that the new series don't have; the Master as he is played by Roger Delgado and Anthony Ainley. I so much prefer the Master suave, charming and sadistic than John Simm's bat out crazy version. I also find both Delgado and Ainley quite sexy; obviously I'm a sucker for a goatee. Nyssa is one of my favourite companions, quiet, smart and nice. I always felt that when the Master takes over Tremas body, then he must get his memories. Especially as he manages to trick Nyssa into thinking he is Tremas in Logopolis, he would have needed those memories for that. So what about feelings? The Master isn’t devoid of feelings himself so I imagine he could have inherited some feelings for Nyssa from Tremas. Just probably not fatherly, in my mind it would be just like the Master to twist it into something else and nastier. Delgado’s Master would just come along for the ride and of course the chance of doing something that will hurt the Doctor.
This fic is set several years after she left the TARDIS, working as an academia at a university, a career she has in a spin-off novel called Asylum. Basically this fic is just me indulging in a fantasy with not one, but two Masters. Poor Nyssa. Or perhaps lucky Nyssa.( Read more... )
